Re: "Daily COVID-19 SITREP In Your Area"

I agree . Much better frame of mind. I searched for a way to make your home more positive air pressure . But didn't find anything that didn't involve adjusting the HVAC or extensive modifications to the physical structure. Other than the judicious use of a flamethrower when opening the door. :crazy...

Re: "COVID-19 Bug In tips exchange"

Well, this is a well thought out suggestion. I appreciate it very much and will definitely do some looking into it. If it looks like I'm gonna give it a 24 hour try I'll give you a report on how it worked for me. Definitely one for the toolbox to be pulled out at a later date if I don't get to it r...

Re: COVID-19 Thread

Moving anything is impractical in most modern grocery stores. to place the paper products anyplace else would make little difference. As there are so few. There is also so little room available in the store. I don't know where else you would put said products. And number two (no pun intended), to t...

The problem is there aren't pallets of goods available. Simply easier to let customers in to buy the few rationed items that come on the shelves each morning. They are generally gone by mid day.

Of course, Walmart is still open and I am seeing on social media friends that typically do not go to Walmart often posting pictures inside there. I feel this may be due to the social nature of most humans. If they cannot socialize in their normal places they will go wherever it is allowed. .... Can...

A simple prep from years ago was picking up a package of single-use superglues. Suddenly came in handy when I accidentally injured my hand (in both an awkward spot for bandaging and at bad angle) with a kitchen knife yesterday. I'd stuck the whole package of itty bitty superglues right next to the b...

There's this bad advice that I keep hearing like a broken record about "staying in for coronavirus": to "eat your perishables first, and then eat your frozen foods, then your canned and dry goods."

Ahem. You lost me at that instruction. I think what you you meant was "carefully reserve for another purpose, like a dragon hoardes gold" ...not "discard." :D
