Agree with you 100% RH.  Heard a good interview today with a store owner.  He said when you see a totally empty row of shelves that my represent 5 weeks of orders of that product.  It is the same everywhere.  Such as TP.  He said we can't just order enough TP or whatever to fill that whole shelf space in one order.  The warehouses have to just give everyone a pallet of it so it gets to everyone.  He said it also surprised him about the eggs.  Someone starts it and everyone else follows suit and hoards the stuff.  His store also sells house paint and he is seeing a huge increase in paint sales as people are painting the rooms in their houses with the time off they now have.

I have a friend who rents houses.  He went to buy a stove at Lowe's.  Told the guy what he wanted and the guy said you are the first person who wants something other than a freezer.  He was all out of freezers.  He had two woman fighting over the last one.  He told both of them because of their fighting [verbaly] he would not sell it to both of them. So the stuff in demand it's hard to get.  good luck.

This is one heck of a human behavioral experiment.  I think the challenges are going to get greater as time goes on for awhile.  BUT it is still a nice day.   :rotflmao:

So, will the birth rate explode in December?  Or have there been a rise (pardon the pun) in condom sales? Will lingerie sales skyrocket? Inquiring minds like yers and mine want to know! :scratch:

So my wife brought this to my attention. I kinda spaced out we have these. When she went through her MRSA ordeal, they gave us 2 boxes of latex gloves. We'd like to give them to someplace that could use them. Now I can't just walk into the nursing home close by, or city hall so any ideas on how to hand these off?

You may need them to go to the grocery store in the future.

Glen the grocery stores have the plastic gloves for I'm there to see it.  Give them to the hospitals if that's what is what you want.  I went shopping today and I used the wipes and so far so good.  The cashiers had the plastic gloves on and I'm happy about that.  I'm sure the nursing home's would love to have them.  Just give them to the receptionist and they will take care of the rest.  I can't see my mom or my dad but they do accept stuff by the desk.  good luck.

Cripes, any EMS personnel will take them and put them to good use. Sit them at their door.

The floral shop the wife works for shut down today. They had lots of flowers & arrangements left so they hauled them to folks in care centers & assisted living. They got lots of calls thanking them as the residents have been unable to have visitors.

Get outdoors, but donít go far? Visitors face restrictions, closures
Some boat landings close and confusion reigns as COVID-19 travel restrictions threaten outdoor activities away from home.

Heard this mornig that Fauci has said he expects the "flattening of the curve" by ~ 4/15. Also that Fanatics, the sports apparel company, was converting 2 of their factories that had been shut down to making gowns & masks. Microsoft earlier in the week came out & said that they had 9,000,000 of the N95 masks that they normaly use in production they were going to give to the government. :happy1: :cool: I'm a glass 1/2 full kind of guy so those are the stories I look for.

... if the hoggers quit  all THE DAMNED HOARDING!!!!!!!! :angry:

... then I could find a box of 9mm ammo.  And you can't find any .223 either, but I care less about that because I don't have anything that eats it.

Food hoarders... I can understand that.  People panic.  But ammo?!?  This is NOT the Zombie Apocalypse folks.

I just read that garden centers are non essential.

If'n they see us headin' their direction they'll high tail it outta there! "Hey, it's those guys in the Studebaker who plug toilets with wool! Run fer yer lives!"

There were still some small funerals being held in these parts as of the other day, primarily family members only for elderly who had very little family left for instance. Otherwise they're having memorial services once an all clear is given.
