  1. I'll see your Kitty and raise you.
  2. COVID-19 2.0: No Politics edition

    My mother lives alone. Her only company now is her West Highland Terrier, Bonnie. Two of my sisters that live close are making sure she remains stocked up and sure, we can all talk by phone, but this not being able to be around family is really taking it's toll on her. Seeing her adult children, grandchildren and great grandchildren has always been important to her. She also misses silver sneakers with her pals. All this would be much easier for her if she still had my father, so it really bums me out.

    Man, I get that about going into a store. I was in Whole Foods Saturday morning and then to Total Wine to pick up an online order my wife placed. It just keeps getting more and more uncomfortable with the tape on the floor, signs everywhere and people avoiding getting close to each other.

    I'm curious and have a question for those working from home that otherwise would not be. If say in 30 days, things appear to resume back to a somewhat normal situation and your employer/place of business recalls you to the office/store/shop, do you think there will be some separation anxiety? I mean in the sense of leaving home, not being around pets all day, kids, significant other, etc. Will you be freaked out some or looking forward to it? I can't truly speak to it since I am still going out everyday but I'm obviously spending more time at home at night and on the weekends.

    Plus, the cashiers work right and left side of registers translating to little or no lines whatsoever. Felser, right on. Wawa are also good.

    Any issues with QT? I'll drive by 20 Circle Ks to hit a QT.

    Yep. I sometimes avoid specific locations of chains that I otherwise have no problem with. There is a Flying J in New Mexico that seems to attract the worst local element, so....

    This happened in McCamey Texas, that crew has moved on to Uvalde now. Not sure of the store but we see credit card purchases at Allsup's so likely one of them. Can't avoid the timing and need for them to be where they are. These crews are working through a shit load solar farm acres applying herbicides. There is very little tolerance for unwanted brush and weed growth at these places. Shit fucks up cable trays, drive lines, shades panels, creates fires and overall safety risk to electrical techs, etc.. Wish I didn't have to have them there but... In a couple of weeks I have to send the second wave that consists of mowers. By then, this current Texas group will have made it to California to join their comrades and finish up the remaining lot out west.

    What is interesting to me, is that some of the N95 masks being recommended have traditionally been used for dust particles only, such as the 3M 8210. We've always bought a shit load of these over the years for use when mixing dry pesticides (strictly voluntary and not always required). So, in theory, a common nuisance dust musk, likely does offer some protection and is better than nothing. What medical (and affiliated first responder) professionals need is totally different in protection levels versus the common dude walking down the street. On a side note, I have crews working in west Texas. One of my drivers had a face mask hanging from the rear view mirror of his truck while parked at a convenience store and some knucklehead tried to grab it. Yeah, this is probably not the time to leave a mask hanging on the mirror but what about the idiot walking by and thinking that mask was worth taking? I mean, 1. gross and 2., you dumb motherfucker, what if the user of the mask is sick.?!

    This is pretty consistent everywhere people have the ability to do so. I think the story might underplay a little how many first time gun owners are actually causing the spike. I believe it to be the majority at the moment.
  11. I've always been a fan and agree, it was excellent. If they keep tour dates and I can get the timing right, I'm planning to catch one of the summer shows scheduled in Texas.

    Agree. I'm almost certain he continued to shake hands and hug.

    That map is interesting. I can't say I've ever ordered just french fries for delivery. Utah is cinnamon sticks, what the hell? I've never done Sushi by delivery and never will.
