    Right now i am O. V. E. R. the ronas!!! Our middle son lives in vermont. His wife is a nasty evil piece of work. Yes i know it is his decision to stay so no blasting me for my tirade please. We are truly hoping this is his last straw with her as ugly s that may sound. Even then it will open up another can of worms too boot. So there is no winning here except that if he left he would be getting out of a bad situation that can quickly ruin his life at this point. But right now i NEED to get to our son amd i cannot. There is no way my back will let me drive or ride 19 hours and then plane is out too because for any travel to and fro i must quarantine there and when coming back here. Plus i have my elderly mama and baby g to think of as well. Yes us too but those are the super important ones. But dangit all!

    Oh geez! The wicked witch is at it again along with her evil momma no doubt. I’m so so sorry! I’ll be praying for you, J, and the boys! I wish there was a easy solution. The only thing I can think of is a charter plane though that would cost a fortune. Whatever’s going on, I hope it turns out ok.
    Hang in there!

    Ohio is talking about locking everything down again. But, our county has only had 46 corona deaths total since this plague started.. (sorry for all the families, but they blame corona on a death even if the person had many other problems). I think by now everyone knows the social distancing thing, etc.
    Why are the powers that be grandstanding all the time? Shutting down everything only hurts everyone. I don't see it helping anything. I sincerely hope that any vaccine they come up with is safe and helps to reign in this daggone plague! I feel so badly for those businesses that went under and will go under if we are locked down again.
    (so glad I live away from towns and basically live in my barn, anyway!)

    Our nc gov is like this. I DO understand caution but goodness so so many people have lost their lives and businesses from it. My peeve with locking down again.... people will not do it because of how he has handled it so far and so many have lost from so much of it. People are afraid if he closes nc again he will not open it until this is all gone.... and i just do not see THAT happening for a very long time if ever.

    And then there is this.... if big box stores can be open and considered safe why can small ones not be? Small businesses actually do better in the distancing things than the big box stores do simply by the low volume of people in them. People going to big box stores are crammed in like sardines lots of times while small businesses rarely have big crowds.

    Then you have some schools open and most others closed but most schools are doing sports practices even if they are closed. That makes no sense to me at all.

    We are in the disagreement for vaxxing for this period. It is a virus and so many people have been positive on tests gotten better then neg and then positive again for it. Tptb cannot guarantee the vaccine will work... some because of the speed of trials, then the getting this mess more than once and the testing was only a few months there can be no data on what it will do to people later on like years later. We just do not trust it and trust the testing process and time frame it has all been done in.

    I’m not an anti vax’er but I’m a cautious one. I agree, anything fast tracked like this makes me very wary...remember phen-fen and other “miracle” drugs that were pushed through too quick...it wound up the cure was worse than the problem. To me, it’s going to be a wait and see before I’ll get it.

    Anymore..unless your a lawyer..you might want to wait about 10 years or so. That seems to be the TRUE trial tests. Its amazing to see so many drugs turn lethal on late night T.V. adds. :heehee:

    I can remember Hexachlorophene; an antibacterial that was used for acne, dandruff and extensively in newborn nurseries. Until they discovered it caused brain damage and death. It became prescription only and eventually was removed completely in most countries.
    I know I will wait first to see if a vaccine actually makes a difference and then weigh the risks against the benefits.

    Right now we are comfortably in WA with my daughter's family. We have been here over two weeks so feel pretty safe. BUT... we need to go home. Right now we are asked to do a two week quarantine when we go home. We will need to grocery shop and my other daughter will have a fit if she cannot come over. (She has been through terrible stress and needs her mommy.) Seriously!

    I will not pretend to know anything that I do not. I am as much in the dark as the next person. I do know that I will follow my gut and protect myself and the DH to the best of our ability. Casinos and bars may open but I find them non-essential in my life so do not care. I will not be attending large social gatherings and I will wear a mask when out to do essential business.
    I wish everyone strength and health as we navigate this difficult time.

    South Africa is lifting completely on 15 December. Back to normal. Hopefully work will pick up by then.

    I heard the other day that all of Africa has had better results at handling this than other continents and countries. I hope you are all safe with your opening as we brace for more lock downs.

    @luvmyherd yeah. Our numbers are low compared to the european countries. We are also opening all our borders to the world as long as there is a health certificate attached from the embasy of origin.
    I only see that we gonna get a real bad second wave hitting us.
    I must say, because TB is a predominant illness here, our hospitals could handle this well enough.
    I have just recovered from a second Rona infwction and I am certain I have built up some serious anti bodies.

    Well Oklahoma is being hammered by Covid. Our numbers are high, and the hospitals are opening "special wards" due to the increase of patients. Our daily death toll is still announced. Its not slowing down here.

    Hahaha today on the news they were talking about the NC gov inauguration party thinger. How much do we want to bet that HE has a huge gathering of plenty more than 25 people outside and 10 inside..... if so.... how does he expect the people of nc to follow his dictatorship when he is breaking them. But i am sure it will be said that they were socially distant or some such bs. Last week or the week before he cut the acceptable gathering numbers back these numners again because of the rise in positive covid tests. It will be interesting what excuses he and his party come up with for not following his very own rules. Kinda like every day people are not allowed funerals and such but big time people can have as many as they want and half those unmasked.

    Its really sad that leaders change rules to suite themselves without think of the consequences to others

    It was just revealed that our governor attended a birthday party on the 6th. Not a good example to set. At least he admitted he was wrong.
