Who know's how this is going to all play out.
Title: Re: corona pandemic~
Post by: delcecchi on February 26, 2020, 03:00:25 PM
I think most likely it crossed over from animals to people, like SARS and MERS to which it is related.   It is possible it escaped from a facility where it was being studied because of its relationship to those other diseases.   

It seems to be pretty contagious.  Not Measles contagious or NoroVirus contagious but flu or cold contagious.   

What percent of the people who catch it will wind up with serious complications or dead remains to be seen.   

It's been a while since random "travelers" from infected areas have been allowed in to roam freely.     

Democrats are going to blame Trump for everything they possibly can.   If this ends up serious they will say he didn't do enough to stop it.    It it doesnt, they will criticize him for over reacting. It's politics.   

AS for Chelsea Clinton, haven't heard that although I am sure she is on the foundation payroll in some sort of highly paid, make work position.  It could be the health initiative.   

Will it infect half the population (5 billion cases) and kill 10s of millions, like some experts say it could?   Will it fizzle out?    Will it turn into a chronic problem like Flu?    Will modern technology come up with a vaccine relatively soon?   

Tune in next time for the next chapter of this exciting story...  And that's my take.

Sounds like some conspiracy theorists are hard at work to make the weak minded panic.
I got a sneaky suspicion that the D's and the media will get the blame tonight for the stock market adjustment.

I agree with Del's post.  I heard today that a vaccine could be available by July.  That's really on a fast track for vaccine's.  This of course needs money and it will be provided.  Now the stuffed shirts in DC are arguing about how much.  Nobody knows how much they just want to throw out a big figure.  Trump says for the first phase 2 billion.  Even the people who are going to provide a vaccine say's they need 150 million for the first phase and Trump is giving them 1 billion for the vaccine at this point because more will be needed.  I think the administration did a good job on day one by stopping flights from certain countries.  This is why at this time we are not experiencing what other country's are.  Should we be concerned , of course.  Some doctors have said by April this virus will slowly go away due to the nature of this virus and others that are similar.  I'm not in a panic mode like some folks are.  The media makes it worse by speculating rather than waiting for facts to appear and then report facts instead of speculation.  In the end this will pass and the stock market will fly back up.  Cheaper stocks with eager buyers with the money.  good luck.

Yup the media jackals will do or say anything to get attention.  No way am I going overseas.  I heard today some talk about the seasons having an influence on this new virus too??  So maybe it will just wear out.  I feel safe here in rural MN.  Knock on wood!!

Typically virus things like the flu  fade away in spring and summer.   They don't know about this one but they are hoping.   

As for the vaccine, they might have some to test by July.   First animals, then human safety, then effectiveness, then mass production.   Shortest time I have heard is well over a year total.    And that is really fast as this stuff goes.

The problem with this virus, is that it can live up to 9 days on a surface ...compared to the flu of 3 days on a surface.

so, wash yur hands and watch what you touch!  :puke:
Title: Re: corona pandemic~

Maybe wash my hands a little more often but other than that business as usual.  not seeing masks or anything around.   Nearest cases are at some base up by LA.    Feds want to put a bunch of people in quarantine at a run down place in Costa Mesa.   which is still like 70 miles from us.   If I worried about that stuff I would worry about UCSD which is like 30% Asian students. 

Plane ride home probably most dangerous part...

I have to agree with Del as this is what my brother did for a good share( 10+ years)  of his life, blend vaccines but for companion animals. He sayin that even if they had a possible vaccine right now it would take 2 months of QA testing & then another 2 months of sterility testing before they would be even close to passing government standards for release. He's of the belief that the change of seasons could be of help with this as well. I agree with RH & LPS about the media too.  :bonk:  :banghead:
Title: Re: corona pandemic~
Post by: delcecchi on February 27, 2020, 10:58:36 AM
Looks like there is a candidate vaccine that they are working on getting ready to start testing for safety and then on through a process. 

There are two drugs that are thought to possibly be effective.   One was developed to treat Ebola and the other is a two drug combo used for HIV.  I think both have begun testing already, probably in China where most of the sick people are.   

Take a bunch of people who are sick, give some of them the antiviral and some a fake.   See if it makes any difference in what happens to them.   Make sure nobody knows who got which until after they are done being sick.

If one of the two drugs works then the trick will be to make like millions of doses fairly quickly.

Post by: Dotch on February 27, 2020, 02:28:53 PM
I think it was Barry who mentioned feeling relatively safe here in rural MN and I'd tend to echo that sentiment at least for now. So far the virus hasn't demonstrated to the best of my knowledge that the transmission is windblown. I'd also echo the notion that things like frequent handwashing, keeping your hands off your face, out of your eyes, ears & nose are good ideas, along with staying away from sick people and staying away from healthy people if you're sick. All should help slow the spread of many viral respiratory diseases. I've been on an almost fanatical handwashing regime for the past couple winters. It certainly hasn't hurt other than my hands are chapped. I go in FF, the grocery store, the feed store or wherever to shop, I wear my gloves. I purposely try to avoid shaking hands. I wash my hands immediately upon my return home and I mean wash them, (lather while singing Happy Birthday 2x+) just as I would before doing any veterinary OB procedures. The summer months tend to get people outside in the fresh air and away from each other more so that usually isn't a bad thing either. Will it work with Covid-19? Guessing we're gonna find out.

For those of you who didn't get into the market, this incident represents an opportunity sometime in the near future.   Just don't wait until it becomes clear the world isn't ending.

Nothing to worry about with the coronavirus, it's just the common cold according to Rush.
 
"It looks like the coronavirus is being weaponized as yet another element to bring down Donald Trump," Limbaugh said Feb. 24 on his radio show. "Now, I want to tell you the truth about the coronavirus … I’m dead right on this. The coronavirus is the common cold, folks."

It certainly is being weaponized against Trump (and Pence).   That much is indisputable.  Just look at the statements by the Democrats and the stories in the Media.   The AP even put out a fact check article that said much of this blather is incorrect.   

As  to the severitiy, wasn't it the media and "experts" not that long ago talking about how the Coronavirus was nothing, the flu kills way more every year blah blah.     We need to wait and see, although I am encouraged by the fact that the death rate as a percent of cases and of recoveries continues to fall.   There is a lot of hysteria about Measles every time there is an outbreak, and it is a serious disease.  I grew up before there was a measles vaccine and survived.   

So, yeah Rush downplayed the seriousness, but was spot on about the politicizing and weaponizing.   
I would prefer that folks keep the political crap  off this site, or at least quarantine it.  It's become a virus of its own, polluting everything.

First place I didn't know Rush was a politician, I thought he was a media personality. Also You might want to take a look at yourself as far as injecting politics where it doesn't belong like blaming Carter for the 55 mph speed limit for example.

Yup, Captain Trips is definitely here. Following predics exactly like written in the book. Amazing. Went and got groceries early this am; people going absolutely nuts. Lines from pharmacy out into the aisles, stocking up. (And trying to get masks; even though they won't keep you from getting it, just spreading it) All sanitizers sold out. Aisles with disinfectant wipes are totally empty, the boxes were laying on the floor. Soup and canned goods aisles were totally pretty much half empty. Bottled water shelves were empty, people had carts full of it. (Pigs) They need to set a limit on this stuff per person. One lady had four CARTONS of the big tubs of disinfectant wipes, I told her to knock it off and put half back for other people. She told me to go to he**. Told her "back atcha, toots". Wait 'til it really gets cranked up......is it like this anywhere else, or just CAWchester? I wanted to take pics of the aisles, but no camera.
Title: Re: corona pandemic~

It's even affected the little feed store where I get my bagged feed Rebs. The guy told me yesterday that they can't get dust masks. This is silly because they do nothing to protect you against coronavirus. But people are buying them anyway. In the meantime a lot of people working in these confinement hog buildings and needing them to protect themselves from the dust are going without.  :doah:

This is starting to remind me more and more of the Y2K debacle. People had cases of soup, crackers, bottled water, beans, you name it stashed and most of it never got used. I still remember a couple old spinsters being nosey called my friend who lives on the LeSueur River and asked him if his artesian well was still flowing so they could get water. It hadn't flowed for decades but he told them if they needed water to help themselves.  :huh:

One good thing about this virus is that all these folks wiping things off will maybe cut the flu down.  We have over 20,000 cases of the flu now and where is the panic about that??  I talked to the pharmacist today and told him about the panic down where Reb lives.  He just laughed and said people need to stop the panic syndrome.  I just shake my head when I hear all this panic in the news.  good luck.

I agree, RH. I spent the afternoon puttering around outside and thoroughly enjoying myself. Went and got more LP for the one grill. Sayin' 60's this weekend...I'm grillin'! Saw the news teams at the grocery store filming, must be getting set to hype it up more on the 6:00 news. Already been cranking it up in the local paper.... :reporter;

Yep, the fake news is making this way worse than it really is. Like RH said the flu has killed 18,000 people this year and nothing said about that. Actually about a month ago on the national news there were talking about how the flu was more deadly than covid 19. Now all the sudden that is all by the way side. Just the fake news trying to get Trump. All it is.

Let's hope its a false alarm,but with this virus gotta wonder why the medical teams are all suited up? head gear,goggles,don't see em like this with the cold or flu.

after yesterday's update it looks like this corvid 19 is ramping up,apparently the sceening they do ain't worth a sheet,now they think folks are getting the virus from airlines used to evacuate folks from the plague countries once here its spread not only from person to person but anything they touch,cough or sneeze on like reb said buses,commuter train etc....

So i'm still camping out in my wheel house,might head to devils lake tomorrow less folks up there ,better fishing too or maybe head to missouri to bang some snow geese as they are migrating already.

so many discisions....uffda! :doofus:

Airplanes are nothing but germ incubators. The same canned air over and over that is minimally filtered. How often ya think those filters are serviced? Or even effective? I bet ya a thousand bucks my home system is ten times better. When they're all suited up and take precautions like that, it's because they haven't yet come up with a clue of how, why, or where...precautions for the unknown.

Have to say that I have seen no reason to stock up for anything except Vodka and beer.  I'm more afraid of getting the flu  than this media driven virus.  Trump is keeping this thing contained as I see it.  Just use common sense.  Wash your hands and when you go shopping take some wipes with you if the store doesn't have any.  Hey I"m one of those who are at risk for all of this flu included but the media doesn't seem to care about the flu which kills more people that this thing.  Not going to buy those mask's which will do nothing to stop this anyway.  good luck.

Stocking up is only going to save you a trip to the store, where you MAY get coughed on by someone. I did some research; and the annual death rate for seasonal flu virus is .01 %, and the death rate for the Corona so far, out of all infected......01. The same. They just want you to stock up, empty shelves mean full pockets. (For them) No beer in 'fridge, now THAT's a disaster. So I always thought.  ;)

All those people who got it aren't recovered yet so we don't know what happens to them.   And we don't know how many cases that we never knew were Covid. 

Going by the top line numbers 95,000 confirmed cases, 3285 deaths (3%), 53k recovered (6% deaths compared to recovered)

Those numbers are way worse than the flu.   

Here are the latest numbers from https://ncov2019.live/data

Look at the data, do your own arithmetic.     Unless there are a lot of cases that never got confirmed looks like death rate is at least 1% even in developed countries with decent medical systems.   

This is way more serious than flu.

Well, we might be OK after all; just call Dr. Trump! That and a good spray of tap water should do it!  :happy1:
I saw him saying this on the noon news this am while grabbing lunch.

.
Experts say the death rate is 3.4 percent. Trump says that's 'false.'

The World Health Organization said this week that about 3.4 percent of coronavirus patients have died.

"Globally, about 3.4 percent of reported COVID-19 cases have died," Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the director general of the WHO, said at a news conference in Geneva this week.

During an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity on Wednesday night, Trump claimed that the WHO estimate was "false, fake news" citing a "hunch" he had.

"I think the 3.4 percent is really a false number — and this is just my hunch — but based on a lot of conversations with a lot of people that do this, because a lot of people will have this and it's very mild, they'll get better very rapidly. They don't even see a doctor. They don't even call a doctor. You never hear about those people," Trump said.

You know what the sad thing is...?

Trump might be right.

Experts have an estimate of the fatality rate now, but the statistics will probably change as more people contract the virus.  It will go up or down and Trump will claim victory either way because the "experts were wrong again."

A lot of people will get sick.   Most will likely get better.  Perhaps many never will go see a doctor and there is no good way to know how many unreported cases there are.

I just wish everything that came out of his mouth didn't sound like garbage.   :puke:

Health officials confirm first case of coronavirus in Minnesota
Published 2 hours agoUpdated 8 mins agoCoronavirusFOX 9


(FOX 9) - Minnesota health officials have confirmed the first case of the COVID-19 coronavirus in Minnesota. State health officials said the case is an older adult in Ramsey County who recently was on a cruise ship with another passenger with a known COVID-19 case.

The Minnesota patient began to develop symptoms on February 25 and sought health care on Thursday, March 5. Samples were tested on Friday, March 6 and came back positive but the Minnesota Department of Health is waiting on CDC confirmation.

1st coronavirus case in Minnesota: Gov. Walz, health officials brief media
Gov. Walz and Minnesota health leaders briefed the media on the first confirmed case of coronavirus in Minnesota.

So he was sick for 2 weeks before he went to a Dr.  Imagine all of the people he has spread that too already.  We have lost the battle here in safe MN.  Get out of the metro area.  That must be close to RH.

I'm not worried about it.  Never been on a cruise and never will.  I don't like it when your on a big ship with lot's of people.  I don't like to fly also.  I don't even have a passport.  It's a virus and it will pass like all the other one's.  The next time it show's up they will have a shot ready for it and med's to get rid of it.  I worry more about getting the flu but there is no panic about that.  Thousands die each year from the flu.  Death rate for this is very low.  Wash my hands and live my life.  good luck.

If people spent a lot more time out in the fresh air, I think that would make a big difference. I hate crowds and such too, RH. Never been to Mall of America, and never will be. Although I love flying, hate places like airports that are crowded with people standing in line. State Fair is insane. That's why I even do my grocery shopping on early weekday mornings, or later at nite.

EBay bans sales of masks and hand sanitizer in response to coronavirus price gouging



EBay, trying to crack down on price gougers taking advantage of coronavirus fears, has banned the sales of face masks and hand sanitizer on its site.

The online marketplace told sellers Thursday that it's rejecting listings for N95 and N100 masks, hand sanitizer and disinfecting wipes and that it is working to remove listings with inflated prices.

It's also removing listings whose titles or descriptions misuse the terms "coronavirus," "COVID-19" or "2019nCoV."

"EBay is taking significant measures to block or quickly remove items on our marketplace that make false health claims," spokesperson Ashley Settle said in a statement. "We are making every effort to ensure that anyone who sells on our platform follows local laws and EBay policies."

The move came the day after California Gov. Gavin Newsom declared a state of emergency - a declaration that helps the state prepare for the spread of the coronavirus and includes restrictions on raising prices of consumer goods.

"Californians shouldn't have to worry about being cheated while dealing with the effects of coronavirus," state Atty. Gen. Xavier Becerra said in a consumer alert. "Our state's price gouging law protects people impacted by an emergency from illegal price gouging on medical supplies, food, gas, and other essential supplies."

Before EBay's announcement, a 20-pack of Gerson 1730 face masks was available for as much as $148, while a pack of five 2.5-ounce Germ-X hand sanitizer bottles cost $500, CNBC reported. (By comparison, two 30-ounce bottles of Germ-X were offered online by Walmart for less than $8 on Friday.) The EBay listings have since been removed.

Other companies with online marketplaces such as Amazon and Walmart have also struggled to manage price gouging from third-party sellers as the coronavirus spreads and panic swells.

Newsom called out Amazon in a tweet Tuesday.

"Seriously, @amazon? These prices are absurd," he wrote, attaching a screenshot of a small bottle of Purell hand sanitizer priced at $79.80 and a 24-pack of Purell at $400 offered by third parties on the site.

Amazon said price gouging is a clear violation of its policies, and noted that it is illegal in some areas - including California. A company representative said it had recently blocked or removed tens of thousands of coronavirus-related listings with inflated prices.

"We are disappointed that bad actors are attempting to artificially raise prices on basic need products during a global health crisis," the Amazon representative said.

Newsom gave Amazon credit for swiftly tackling the issue in a news conference Wednesday.

Online sellers have generally struggled to regulate listings by third-party vendors. A bipartisan group of House lawmakers urged Amazon and EBay executives to crack down on third-party vendors selling fake, stolen or unsafe goods more broadly, and on Monday, members of the House Judiciary Committee introduced a bipartisan bill that increases liability exposure for companies that risk consumers' health or safety.

anyway, he said because i go to several faculities, and the fact that there are 2 cases of the corona in prescott there not allowing any corporate travel, outside venders in the plant.

so i guess its a conference call!!!!!!!!!!!!

Doesn't apply to gaff artist Biden or crazy Bernie though.  I say just live your life like you always have, don't panic, this virus will go away.  I do believe in the wipping your hands deal though.  good luck.

From the CDC regarding wearing masks....

should folks stock pile masks? NO

If you have masks should you wear them when you go out "NO"

Even if you have corvid19 in your community no need to wear any type of mask surical,N95'S RESPIRATOR MASkS...NONE...THIS FROM Dr Eli PERENCEVICH md,professor of medicine and epidemiology at the univ of iowa

He states no evidence wearing masks on healthy people will protect them plus folks wear masks incorrectly and are always adjusting masks,touching they're face,not good

Best evidence so far is corona virus is a lot deadlier than the flu, but it is hard to get a handle on either since a lot of people who get sick of either, but especially corona virus, haven't gotten tested.

Well from what I read from the CDC they did a comparison flu vs corvid19,now that corvid19 is dug in our country

common flu 1% per 1000 folks will die from it,corvid 19 3.5% per 1000,so the hype about this being just the flu is in accurate ...

"Trouble Every Day"

Well I'm about to get sick
From watchin' my TV
Been checkin' out the news
Until my eyeballs fail to see
I mean to say that every day
Is just another rotten mess
And when it's gonna change, my friend
Is anybody's guess

So I'm watchin' and I'm waitin'
Hopin' for the best
Even think I'll go to prayin'
Every time I hear 'em sayin'
That there's no way to delay
That trouble comin' every day
No way to delay
That trouble comin' every day
...
And I'm watchin' and I'm waitin'
Hopin' for the best
Even think I'll go to prayin'
Every time I hear 'em sayin'
That there's no way to delay
That trouble comin' every day
No way to delay
That trouble comin' every day

Well, you can cool it,
You can heat it...
'Cause, baby, I don't need it...
Take your TV tube and eat it
'N all that phony stuff on sports
'N all the unconfirmed reports
You know I watched that rotten box
Until my head begin to hurt
From checkin' out the way
The newsman say they get the dirt
Before the guys on channel so-and-so

And further they assert
That any show they'll interrupt
To bring you news if it comes up
They say that if the place blows up
They will be the first to tell,
Because the boys they got downtown
Are workin' hard and doin' swell,
And if anybody gets the news
Before it hits the street,
They say that no one blabs it faster
Their coverage can't be beat

And if another woman driver
Gets machine-gunned from her seat
They'll send some joker with a brownie
And you'll see it all complete

So I'm watchin' and I'm waitin'
Hopin' for the best
Even think I'll go to prayin'
Every time I hear 'em sayin'
That there's no way to delay
That trouble comin' every day
No way to delay
That trouble comin' every day

For this study, researchers used a nebulizer device to put samples of the new virus into the air, imitating what might happen if an infected person coughed or made the virus airborne some other way.

They found that viable virus could be detected up to three hours later in the air, up to four hours on copper, up to 24 hours on cardboard and up to two to three days on plastic and stainless steel.

With no one in the stands it'll be just like when the Gophers were on probation back in the 70's. We'd go over to a friend's frat right next to The Barn and get blasted. Then we'd go across the street at halftime where they'd let us in for free. As long as we slithered onto the inter-campus bus we avoided sleeping on the floor at the frat. Good times!  :happy1:

Hey that may be fun Dotch.  Hard to imagine no fans.  Some big NBA player said he doesn't even want to play if no fans are there.  Can't blame him.  SO the big thing here is whether there will be a handle on this before NFL starts.   :happy1:

I was fortunate to have stocked up recently before hoarding TP became a "thing". I detest running low on @$$wipe so will routinely scour the local ads for the best deals, keeping a couple months worth on hand. I also have an emergency supply stashed here at the office that only a couple other individuals are aware of. The office building owner frequently runs out and given his precarious financial condition, let's just say it's a longer drive than to the ranch than I'd like. And there's always a roll of shop towels in the pickup. One can never be too cautious... :huh:

I recently ordered a case of TP before any of this stared.  Did the came thing with paper towels and even got me some shop towels.  It is not cheap neither if you get the good stuff but at least you have lots.  Did the same thing with Kuerig coffee things.

Called Hy-Vee, home of the rip-off, at 7:00 am today. They said truck came in last nite, and they still had some TP on the shelves....I immediately roared on down (Theyre only 6 blokcs away). There were only 4 pkgs left. I grabbed two; wasn't gonna be a pig. As I put them in my cart, a lady grabbed the other two. (They have no limits, the morons)
If I woulda waited one more minute.....anyway, I'm good now!  Freezer full to the brim, cupboards stocked, canned goods, pop, veggies... (Why buy water, it comes outta the tap) :happy1:

I am writing to you from Bergamo, Italy, at the heart of the coronavirus crisis. The news media in the US has not captured the severity of what is happening here. I am writing this post because each of you, today, not the government, not the school district, not the mayor, each individual citizen has the chance, today to take actions that will deter the Italian situation from becoming your own country’s reality. The only way to stop this virus is to limit contagion. And the only way to limit contagion is for millions of people to change their behavior today.

If you are in Europe or the US you are weeks away from where we are today in Italy.

I can hear you now. “It’s just a flu. It only affects old people with preconditions”

There are 2 reasons why Coronavirus has brought Italy to it’s knees. First it is a flu is devastating when people get really sick they need weeks of ICU – and, second, because of how fast and effectively it spreads. There is 2 week incubation period and many who have it never show symptoms.

When Prime Minister Conte announced last night that the entire country, 60 million people, would go on lock down, the line that struck me most was “there is no more time.” Because to be clear, this national lock down, is a hail mary. What he means is that if the numbers of contagion do not start to go down, the system, Italy, will collapse.

Just reurned from my errands & stopped at the DG store on the way home. They had some TP on the shelf but it wasn't much. Dont really need any as there's close to a years supply up in Austin so I left what they had alone. Did find a few bottles of antibacterial hand soap on the shelf too though & 1 of them came home with me. We have a Dollar Tree in town now too, not sure how their supply is. :scratch: May haveta give it a look.

This town best get things going in a hurry...125,000 people and no stores have TP, hand sanitizer, and my buddy hit 4 places last nite looking for Tylenol or aspirin, and had no luck. I saw that here a week ago when I was looking... fortunately found a huge bottle at a store. Last one. IMO, we were ill prepared. 'Course, losing both Shopkos, Kmart, Fareway foods, really put a dent in it all. I called ALDI, both Walmarts, Target, Cub, HY-Vees (theres 3) spent a half hour on phone this am to find out ALL of them currentley  have no paper products, and can't tell ya when they will...that's the second thing I asked. We're gonna be in dire straits here in about a week. Even Amazon is outta TP as I just found out, and Target and Walmart can't order that for you online anymore. Been doing lotsa checkin. Don't know about COSTCO, but I ran into Sams club too, and they have none either....what are people supposed to do? Especially senior citizens that don't do the internet stuff?
Corncobs may take a meteoric rise in price...

Where have you been for the last 10 or 20 years?  You can go to a class or you can do it online.  If it is the 8 hr course it will take 8 hours.  The 4 hr course will take 4 hours.  You cannot click fast and try to speed ahead.  I have tried.  BUT you can start the course and go get a cup of coffee and answer when you come back.  If it is for a few seconds.  You can stop and continue in an hour or tomorrow.  No stress.  AND it is a good refresher course and it feels good to brush up on your driving skills or lack of them.

i've been trying for 4 years to get available dates for this defensive driving class to save money on my vehicle ins........now they cancelled that too!!!!!!!!!! :angry2: :angry2: :angry2: :confused: training-087 training-087 :banghead: :banghead: :taz: :taz: :taz:

Where have you been for the last 10 or 20 years?  You can go to a class or you can do it online.  If it is the 8 hr course it will take 8 hours.  The 4 hr course will take 4 hours.  You cannot click fast and try to speed ahead.  I have tried.  BUT you can start the course and go get a cup of coffee and answer when you come back.  If it is for a few seconds.  You can stop and continue in an hour or tomorrow.  No stress.  AND it is a good refresher course and it feels good to brush up on your driving skills or lack of them.
meh...…..not interested in sitting in front of a puter……..besides there might be some hot 55 year olds!!!! I like personal, people contact.

That's the nice part of it.  You can make it as hard or as easy as you want to be....

I see where it's now starting to affect the NFL too, even if it's in a small way so far. The FA signing period is about to start & a lot of those require a physical exam before they can sign a deal. A lot of the facilities where most of the teams do their exams are now closed so the whole signing of FA's thing is in question now. The draft is coming up soon too & the league has stopped allowing teams to do their pre-draft interviews with the players they're interested in.:crazy:

Checked out the grocery store yesterday. TP had been hit pretty hard but there was still some of the higher end brand name stuff on the shelves. All the hamburger in the meat case was gone. Went to the meat market after that. No real sign of coronavirus panic there. 

Had to make quick trip to town this a.m. to pay a bill I forgot yesterday but needed a box of envelopes 1st. Stopped at Dollar General where some clown with a chain drive wallet was two people in front of me. He had two shopping carts overflowing with hoarded stuff and was pretty proud of himself. It took forever for the cash register to digest it all and print a receipt. I wanted to kick him square in the @$$ & tell him to get a life!  :angry:

I couldn't believe the canned food aisle. Pretty much empty, as was the bread aisle, and the same a-holes had half-cases of veggies piled up in their carts. If I do ever see this sh** again, I am going to intervene. What happens, happens. I have a close friend who's family has little money and 2 kids, and they were unable to find their basic items (including food) because of this crap, so the entire family suffers. This town has a hell of a lot to learn. I'll take small town ethics anyday over all this bullsh**.

We ran into town and went to Target this morning. I saw 2 guys buying diapers, they had 2 packs apiece, checking out when we walked in. As we were walking around, I saw them again with 2 packages apiece again....then we finally got to that end of the store (cause my wife likes to look at everything) those same 2 dudes were asking the clerk when they were going to get more....  :bonk:

What concerns me Reb is the people from the urban areas are figuring out we still have some essential stuff out here in places like Bugtussle. They'll try to swoop in & buy it up. I suspect that's what I saw out at Dollar General earlier today. They usually have part of a whole wall stacked with TP. None to be found there today. I stopped in the grocery store this a.m. afterwards and all the TP was gone. Limits will need to be put in place thanks to these hoarder jerks.  :rolleyes: I did pick up a case of water & a bag of potatoes, both items I'd forgotten yesterday because I was in a hurry to get home to do chores. (& watch Gunsmoke afterwards... :rotflmao:)

You can be sure the scum will hit the small town places. I saw this coming the last 2-3 weeks, and just bought more than normal last couple weeks when I got groceries....but no mass quantities. I always keep the cupboards and freezer as well stocked as I can anyway. Only thing I did grab two of was the TP. The 8 packs. (no 24 roll cases) Already had one 8 pk. I figger if 24 ain't enough, I'll  just have you send me some corncobs. Or wool.

I do the vast majority of the grocery shopping in our household. I'm a sale shopper so I try to do the same. A little lower than I'd like to be on frozen veggies right now but nothing's been on sale locally for a while.

Could be but it's a lot cheaper than TP right now. Dark wool is worth a nickel per lb.  :bonk:

Not sure how safe it'd be in septic and sewer systems. Wool is pretty slow to break down and doesn't burn very well. Hey, I know, if del's still out at the Hotel California we could drop by his place and flush a few bags worth down the toidy just to see what happens!  :whistling:

Mayo found 0 cases in first batch from their new testing lab...  90 tests, no positives.   So good news.

And Dotch, did you see the news item about the two brothers in Tennessee that drove around hitting the stores in all the little towns and buying up thousands of bottles of hand sanitizer that they were then selling on Amazon?   Then Amazon cracked down and ebay cracked down so they are sitting there with like 17000 bottles and no way to sell them.

I think folks need to get out in the open air and take some walks, drives, etc thru woods, trails, whatever. Clears the head, and it's virus free. My neighbor who moved up to a condo in Mpls, , was telling me how depressed he is, really bad. But, said he hasn't been out of his little condo in 2 weeks becuz of the Corona thing, not supposed too....been holed up watching back to back Netflix movies and eating TV dinners. Told him THAT's why he's depressed, ya gotta get out! "no, we're supposed to avoid all contact"....THAT's why he's so depressed!

Shopping never fails to put me in a foul mood.
Since the warden is laid up I had to buy some things today. First stop was Kwik Trip. Gassed up the Impala for tomorrow, got some milk, eggs, bread and butter there, so far so good.
Then came the dreaded grocery store where I saw the hoarders in person for the first time. As I was walking to the entrance I was greeted by a thirty something year old specimen . She was beaming and hollered at me "They got some toilet paper!" Her cart was half full of it
I smiled, secretly wishing I had a soldering iron to stick up her arse. Lots of shelves were bare but I got what I needed and headed home. My faith in humanity has reached an all time low.

As you know my Mom and Dad moved into a real nice adult living thing.  They are in lockdown.  Not to leave the facility or have anyone come in.  It is connected to an assisted care facility so Mom likes to walk over there and talk to people who are under more care and talk to them.  So Evelyn who is a belligerent person was walking through the main area with gloves on so they asked why she had gloves on.  She said they can't tell me what to do so I just went to the grocery store.  NOW they closed off the assisted care facility so there is no access to it in case she brought a virus in.  Bummed my Mom out and they are all mad at Evelyn now.  One dumbass wrecks it for all!!!

Someone needs to boot them as a store square in the azz. They're just making it worse for people that really need stuff. MY buddy in the cities really chewed me out for going out! "You are NOT to be in public gatherings! "You're gonna make it worse and spread it to everyone!" He's holed up for the last 2 weeks watching streaming TV 24/7 and eating microwave dinners.

Sooner or later some folks are going to run out of money or out of room.  I shop every day.  I noticed one thing that's not running out.  Pototoes, fruits, onions and more in produce.  Mashed potatoes sound good and I can eat them on a regular basis.  The past few days folks have not touched the breads much.  Today it was all gone.  Lot's of candy, pop, and sport drinks.  I have a lot of meat saved up.  Hey, Cubs have bonless pork loins for 1.49 lb.  Got a couple today.  Looks like they won't get much or any of chicken or ground beef delivered tonight.  Canned and boxed goods are slim to none.  Rice has been out for two days.  And so it goes.  good luck.

I was just a cub to grab a few things and I was shocked.
There was a lady going batcrap crazy because they were out of chicken! The employee nicely told her they had frozen chicken breasts and she wanted nothing to do with that and then said she was gonna go somewhere else. I looked at him and said good luck!

It's the people who are creating this shortage.  The suppliers have the products but people are buying more than they need.  Another reason is there are not enough truck drivers.  Prior to this virus thing the drivers they had was good enough.  Nobody knew this thing was coming.  So now you have to hire more drivers.  If you had a buisness you would know how many folks you need to carry out the work needed to get done.  When something like this happens and you are in the food buisness all of the sudden you are looking for more help and this is what is happening now.  Hording is selfish and not needed.  good luck.

Exactly. You can't eat 20 cases of TP. Buy what yer family should need, not a ton extra to "be prepared". That's wherein the shortages lie. Blizzard/panic shopping. Also, the grocery stores I've seen just do not have the help right now to stock the shelves, becuz very few want an entry-level job like was the norm for you and I. Everyone needs at least $20 per hr job to buy their iPhones and $200 month plans so they can chitty-chat on their social website and post glorious selfies. Very few plan ahead anymore, it's the me-me instant gratification order a "meal-kit" off Amazon for tomorrows dinner. Instant gratification = instant $$$. They're gonna wake up in a real hurry, I'll tell ya.

went to Walmart today and they were bad.  They had a shipment of toilet paper but ran out fast.  Costco had a semi truck full of toilet paper and ran out quick.  Cub actually had better selection than Walmart but still short supply.  I think the stores biggest problem is that they don't have time to stock the stuff.  they need to close down by 9pm and open at 7am.  this will give them time to stock the stuff.  good luck.

Pet owners, it’s happening with pet food also. My wife went to Chuck&Don’s and this is the photo she sent me. I told her I would order from Chewy.Com. When I placed the order I received this email.

Things are a little backed up on our end with many pet parents ordering food and supplies. Rest assured, we're working hard to deliver your order as soon as possible, while caring for the health and safety of our team members.
We expect most orders to be delivered within the next 5-8 days. You'll automatically receive a tracking link as soon as your order ships. Nothing to do on your part. We're taking care of it.
Thank you for understanding. We hope all our pet parents and their beloved pets stay safe.

Yours truly,

The Chewy Family

Saw some interviews with a large group of Spring-breakers in Florida on TWC this am. They're still massing together, said it's not fair closing the bars and restaurants and implementing all these rules. One girl said "this is what we're supposed to on Spring Break; hit all the bars". One guy and chick said the government is "screwed up and just wants to stop Spring break", and that "this virus thing is blown way out of proportion". Incredible. Sounded like a bunch of whiney six year olds.
With this kinda crap, no quarantine is ever going work. The millennial "me me me" instant gratification thing rears it's ugly head.

Was going to quit the job in March.  Well I'm Glad I didn't quit yet.  Will stick around for a couple of more months since I only work 8 days a month.  The good thing is when I'm there I get to pick out and get meat that I want.  Even got a big pack of toilet paper this morning as I walked into work before 5am.  Even then they only had 5 packs on the shelf.  I only took one but they are going to put limits on them which they should.  So this is what is happening as far as I know.  Today for the first time Cubs put eggs on a  one carton per customer limit.  we found out that Costco and Sams were out of eggs.  Ground beef is the tough item to find along with chicken items.  I ground over 400 pounds of ground beef today from trimings from the beef we cut.  It was gone within an hour.  The tube stuff and any other pre- packaged ground beef is hard to get.

Best time to get ground beef is early if they do get tubed or pre-packaged ground beef.  As far as fresh ground beef that's ground at the store it won't come out till cutting of beef is done.  That time depends on the store and how the butchers time their cutting list.  It doesn't last long.  Basicly most meat items go fast.  Lunch meats, smoked sausages ect along with frozen chicken and other products sell fast.  Just can't catch up.  Today was the first time our meat case looked good, well for a few hours anyway. 

Talked to our dairy manager also.  I already told you about the eggs.  But milk should not be a problem.  They are getting stuff in but there are just so many people who stock it.  Grocery is the same thing.  They are trying their best but there are only so many who stock the stuff.  Produce get's hit also and doesn't get filled until the afternoon.  so try not to get angry at the stores or the workers.  They put out what they get in.  Problem is the hording.  If everyone just bought what they needed there would be less shortages.  Hope this helps some.  good luck.

Bobber chuck roasts are on sale at $4.99 lb at Cubs.  Not the best price because we sell the shop trim at 3.99 lb. but the problem is it sells fast.  You may get a good deal if you ask where you shop what the price is for the whole chuck roll before they cut it in the vac pac it comes in.  They weigh 25 to 35 pound on average.  I do that and cut the chuck eye steaks out, some roasts, and rest for burger.  good luck.

Anti-Malaria Pill?


MINNEAPOLIS — More than a week ago, David Boulware had a eureka moment. The professor of medicine at the University of Minnesota thought to himself — what if a common, inexpensive, “old school” anti-malaria pill could help prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus?

Virtually overnight, Boulware has assembled a team of 10 U of M medical scientists, statisticians and pharmacologists to test out his theory, which involves feeding a preventative medication that’s been around since 1955 to volunteers for five days. His team will monitor which ones contract the COVID-19 virus and which ones don’t.

“We started yesterday,” said Boulware on Wednesday, March 18. “Our hypothesis is we’re going to reduce the number who get sick by 50 percent, and hopefully more than that.”

The U of M Ethics Board quickly signed off on his national clinical trial, and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has sped up its own review. Boulware’s experiment enrolled his first 25 volunteers on Tuesday, about nine days after he organized his team.

This doesn’t happen very often. Experiments testing active drugs on live patients usually take six months to a year just to get up and running.

For Boulware’s team, there’s only one big hurdle remaining: finding up to 1,500 volunteers who have definitely been exposed to the virus. He’s not looking for people with a general concern.

“The inclusion is someone with a known exposure to someone they live with, or a health care worker exposed to a patient,” Boulware said. “Those are the people with the highest risk of transmission. If it works in this highest risk group, it will work in lower risk groups, as well.”

The U of M issued a widespread call Tuesday for volunteers willing to enroll in the trial, which involves feeding half the volunteers the drug and the other half a vitamin placebo. Both groups will be monitored remotely for two weeks to determine who gets a bit ill, who gets really ill and who doesn’t get sick at all.

Boulware, whose major focus is usually HIV-related anti-fungal meningitis trials in Africa, said this test involves hydroxychloroquine, an FDA-approved medicine for the prevention and treatment of malaria. The pills, available since the 1950s, are sold under the brand name Plaquenil(R).

A five-day supply costs about $12.

He said the drug clearly works against what’s known in the lab as the SAS-Covi2 virus, but in a petri dish. Despite some “hints and rumors” leaking out of China, said Boulware, it has not been officially tested on humans.

“The data suggests it works in the lab — in a petri dish, in a subculture — but the hints and rumors that it may be effective for treatment, that hasn’t been confirmed,” he said.

Could a cure for coronavirus around the corner? Boulware cautions that preventing infection in a healthy person who lives with or has been in contact with an infected patient may be a far cry from treating someone who already has advanced symptoms.

“Treating people with severe disease may be different than prevention,” Boulware said. “It’s much easier to treat someone early on. After they get sick, and they have severe symptoms, it’s harder, especially for viral infections, to alter that course.”

Nevertheless, said Boulware, “I think I’m optimistic. I wouldn’t be doing this if I wasn’t optimistic.”

If you think you may be eligible to participate in the clinical trial, email covid19@umn.edu for further instructions.

Got ground beef at costco yesterday.   They were shoveling it out of there.  About every cart had a pack.   Seem to be recovering from the weekend as time goes by.    I've been getting prescriptions refilled now that we are back.

First one:


News • 2020
Public Health officials announced Wednesday the first presumptive case of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in an Olmsted County resident.

This marks Minnesota’s fifth confirmed case of what the World Health Organization is now officially calling a pandemic.

HERE ARE SOME KEY TAKEAWAYS FROM WEDNESDAY’S NEWS CONFERENCE:
➡ Test results came back positive last night through the state public health laboratory. It is the first case of the coronavirus to be reported in southeast Minnesota.

➡ The person is in their 50s with known travel to an area outside of the U.S. with known activity. (Additional details about the individual are not being released to protect the patient's privacy.)

➡ They were seen at Mayo Clinic in Rochester before being discharged. Mayo spokesperson Bob Nellis said all proper precautions were taken ahead of the patient's visit. “We are following all precautions,” said Nellis. “There should be no doubt about that. Our staff is safe, and they have been.”

➡ Like 80 percent of those who contract the virus, the patient has only mild symptoms, similar to the cold or flu. They are now home recovering, and it appears "they are going to be fine," said Olmsted County Public Health Director Graham Briggs.



Number two:

Health officials are reporting that there are two cases of COVID-19 in Olmsted County, and 35 in the state.

The first case in Olmsted County was reported on Wednesday. The individual is in their 50s and is expected to recover. The second individual is also recovering at home. Both are expected to be fine. Health officials said both individuals had traveled to areas with known outbreaks.

Olmsted County Public Health Director Graham Briggs said it is likely there will be community spread. At a news conference on Wednesday, he said he would like to remind residents that 80 percent of cases do not require hospitalization.

I've worked for walmart on the supply chain for about 4 years. I had, still have, my own woodworking business for close to forty years. It just got so I couldn't afford health insurance any more so I started looking for work. The DC in Mankato hired me while others did not. I think because of my age.
After working for myself for so long it was quite an adjustment working for a huge corporation. I started on production and moved to maintenance which was a great advancement. With some exceptions they have treated me great. I have great managers and a great crew to work with.

One of my car buddies works at Walfart on the overnite crews....after he retired from Mayo. He said he likes it there and has no complaints, and this guy won't take any crap from anyone. Can't be too bad if he likes it. My lifelong friend and fellow shift officer's wife also works at SlyVee, and she said they're bastids to work for. Continually flipping her hours and days around. But they need the income. Mayo hosed him over big-time on his retirement, (Partly his fault) as they did a lot of guys. I squeeked out just barely in the nick of time with all bennies and coverage.

Well, when I stopped there on my 3 mile grocery run the other day, just to see if they had dish soap and paper towels, (They didn't) I clearly saw they were taking advantage of folks. I watch the ads really close, and know what stuff costs. Folgers 3 lb tubs of coffee are $7.49 to 7.99 every day everyhwhere. (Did actually get 2 at Walmart later that day for that price) They had a big display out front of it...for $9.29 Tell me they aren't hosing ya on that. I noticed some other prices were insane, too. They've always been like that. Do the loss-leader thing  to drag ya in, then wham ya. People just don't see that, especially now. And that's why they do it.
Had sign for burger in a tube, 80/20....$4 a tube. They had none.

Can't go anywhere to eat so I gotta get the wife something for her birthday today. Got some Cabelas points so perhaps a new fishing rod or if I wanna go all out, maybe a .243!  :happy1:

Had a thing on two of our news stations concerning the restaurant closings in town. City and the PD and sheriffs dept said they will order all meals in from a different restaurant daily to support them.Wonder who's paying for that? Also, they urged all CAWchester residents to do the same as much as they can, order meals from all the restaurants that are doing take out, a different one every day, to support them. Great idea, but what about the retired, low-income, and folks on disability that can't even get enough food because of the shortages and lack of money right now? They're supposed to sit back and eat peanut butter and soup, if they have it? I fired off a letter to the stations, let's see if I even get a reply. This town just doesn't give a damn unless you've got $$$ in yer pockets.
No two ways about it. Let's do something for the folks that can't do it.

Just got done reading the local paper.  The County Commissioners had an emergency meeting to deal with the issues now at hand.  One comment they made was that they wish the State would close the walleye season to end all of these people from all over coming up here and spreading the virus.  As a remote community if it got a stronghold here we would be in deep trouble.  I also wish they would keep it closed to prevent the overthrow of the area by fisher people here at ice out on the river.

Do you still see alot of them coming up Barry. I heard they have really slowed down. Rocky is shutting down after Sunday because of how much it has slowed down. And I hope they don't close it early, this is my favorite time of the year to ice fish. I do wish they would close down the river though like you said.

$10 toilet paper? Coronavirus gouging complaints surge in US

By REESE DUNKLIN and JUSTIN PRITCHARD
Updated: March 19, 2020 02:42 PM
Created: March 19, 2020 11:52 AM

One store advertised hand sanitizer at $60 a bottle. Another was accused of hawking it at $1 a squirt. Chain stores offered $26 thermometers and face masks at the "everyday low price" of $39.95 a pair, while a convenience store touted toilet paper at $10 a roll next to a sign reading: "This is not a joke."

Across a country where lines are long, some shelves are empty and patience is thin, authorities are receiving a surge of reports about merchants trying to cash in on the coronavirus crisis with outrageous prices, phony cures and other scams. An Associated Press survey of attorneys general or consumer protection agencies nationwide found reports already exceeded 5,000, with hundreds more arriving daily.

"Greed is a powerful motivator for some people," said Josh Stein, the attorney general of North Carolina, where the number of reports jumped from 72 to 131 one day earlier this week. "It is inexcusable to prey on people in a vulnerable time to make a quick buck."

AP's 50-state survey is the most comprehensive look so far at the emerging problem. In all, 41 states responded with numbers that included both tips and formally filed complaints against mom-and-pop stores and big-box retailers alike.

This combination of March 11, 2020 photos made by investigators with the Michigan Attorney General's Office shows a $4.47 shelf price sticker for a gallon of Clorox bleach and $8.99 on a price scanner for the same item at a Menards store in Jackson, Mich. (Michigan Attorney General's Office via AP)

(Michigan Attorney General's Office via AP)

AP
AP's count is certainly low also because it only includes cases in which someone went online or called to register a grievance. Many others went to the court of social media to vent their outrage.

"STOP SHOPPING HERE!!" one woman blared on Facebook next to cellphone photos of a Southern California grocery charging $6.98 for a gallon of milk and $14.99 for cheddar cheese. "There are families out there who really need groceries and they're overcharging."

Beyond AP's state count, individual cities are carrying out efforts to prevent exploitation. New York City alone has received more than 1,000 complaints, issued 550 violations and imposed $275,000 in fines for price gouging - including one case in which a store was accused of selling bottles of Purell at $79 each. Among the items the city is preventing stores from jacking up the prices on: aloe vera and rubbing alcohol, the ingredients that can be combined to make hand sanitizer.

Some states refused to share how many reports they've received and several rural states said they had none. Those that did are still checking out many of the claims. While some have gone to court against sellers, others have determined cases didn't meet their legal standard for price gouging, which generally involves an increase of more than 10%.

Many states said they try to resolve reports not by pursuing fines or criminal charges but by confronting the retailer, which typically apologizes and lowers the price.

In Maine, investigators had photographic evidence from a shopper showing the $10 rolls of toilet paper. In Tennessee, where state lawyers forced two brothers to stop selling the more than 17,000 bottles of hand sanitizer they had hoarded, investigators checked out a tip that a store was charging $1 for each squirt.

There were reports of overpriced rice in Wisconsin and potatoes in Idaho. In Connecticut, a seller reportedly inflated the cost of medical masks 10 times over the normal value. One couple in Ohio reported that a thermometer they bought for $8 at a national chain store cost $26 two days later.

"This is so wrong at a time of crisis," the wife wrote in her report about the thermometer. "Contact them and tell them they can't do this."

Pennsylvania, which with more than 1,200 reports earlier this week had the most in the nation, created an email address dedicated to complaints. Oregon launched a price-gouging hotline this week. Oklahoma's attorney general is shifting agents to its consumer protection unit.

A small slice of reports involved not high prices but false claims that products or services can detect or even cure the virus, which in most people causes only mild or moderate symptoms but can be deadly for some. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved no treatments or vaccines, and the National Institutes of Health says no scientific evidence exists to suggest alternative remedies help.

That hasn't stopped the likes of televangelist Jim Bakker pushing treatments with tiny silver particles and conspiracy theorist and Infowars host Alex Jones advertising toothpastes, creams and other products on his radio show. Both were targets last week of cease-and-desist letters from New York's attorney general, and the federal government has sent seven warning letters over false claims.

In Michigan, where reports spiked from 363 on Tuesday morning to 572 Wednesday, Attorney General Dana Nessel's office issued cease-and-desist letters instructing businesses and online sellers to correct their pricing or risk further action.

One went to an Ann Arbor cleaning store that used its Twitter account to advertise Purell at prices that soared from $7.50 for one large bottle to $60 in mere days. After customer backlash, the retailer called the tweeted advertisement a "false post" and lowered the prices.

Another warning letter went to the home improvement chain Menards. Some of its stores doubled the price of a gallon of Clorox bleach to $8.99 and offered two types of 3M respirator masks for an "everyday low price" of $39.95 a pair - more than four times what Home Depot advertised.

"I'm very disappointed with Menards' choice of actions during this uneasy time," one man who believed he was overcharged for bleach wrote in an affidavit.

Menards spokesman Jeff Abbott said in a statement that the Wisconsin-based chain considered the Clorox price reasonable because the product had a higher bleach concentration that would last customers twice as long. The statement didn't address the respirator masks.

"We are disappointed and are taking this very seriously," Abbott said.


Authorities in states including Florida were forwarding to the nation's online retail giants - including Amazon, Walmart and eBay - reports that third-party sellers on their sites were overcharging.

In a statement, Walmart spokesman Kevin Gardner said the company is "taking a firm stance" against possible price gouging on its Marketplace site. Walmart's policy calls for removing listings that are unfairly priced.

On Wednesday, a bipartisan group of House lawmakers urged the Justice Department - which has so far focused on false claims rather than high prices - to police price gouging so that people "have access to the items they need to protect themselves, their families, and their communities."

In an AP interview this week, Attorney General William Barr pledged that the Justice Department would "come down hard" on profiteers so they are not "taking advantage to further hurt the American people."

I saw this article on FB

I talked with a man today, an 80+ year old man.  I asked him if there was anything I can get him while this Coronavirus scare was gripping America.

He simply smiled, looked away and said:

"Let me tell you what I need!  I need to believe, at some point, this country my generation fought for... I need to believe this nation we handed safely to our children and their children...

I need to know this generation will quit being a bunch of sissies...that they respect what they've been given...that they've earned what others sacrificed for."

I wasn't sure where the conversation was going or if it was going anywhere at all.  So, I sat there, quietly observing. 

"You know, I was a little boy during WWII.  Those were scary days.   We didn't know if we were going to be speaking English, German or Japanese at the end of the war.  There was no certainty, no guarantees like Americans enjoy today. 

And no home went without sacrifice or loss.  Every house, up and down every street, had someone in harm's way.  Maybe their Daddy was a soldier, maybe their son was a sailor, maybe it was an uncle.  Sometimes it was the whole damn family...fathers, sons, uncles...

Having someone, you love, sent off to war...it wasn't less frightening than it is today.  It was scary as Hell.  If anything, it was more frightening.  We didn't have battle front news.  We didn't have email or cellphones.  You sent them away and you hoped...you prayed.  You may not hear from them for months, if ever.  Sometimes a mother was getting her son's letters the same day Dad was comforting her over their child's death.

And we sacrificed.  You couldn't buy things.  Everything was rationed.  You were only allowed so much milk per month, only so much bread, toilet paper.  EVERYTHING was restricted for the war effort.  And what you weren't using, what you didn't need, things you threw away, they were saved and sorted for the war effort.  My generation was the original recycling movement in America.

And we had viruses back then...serious viruses.  Things like polio, measles, and such.  It was nothing to walk to school and pass a house or two that was quarantined.  We didn't shut down our schools.  We didn't shut down our cities.  We carried on, without masks, without hand sanitizer.  And do you know what?  We persevered.  We overcame.  We didn't attack our President, we came together.  We rallied around the flag for the war.  Thick or thin, we were in it to win.  And we would lose more boys in an hour of combat than we lose in entire wars today."

He slowly looked away again.  Maybe I saw a small tear in the corner of his eye.  Then he continued:

"Today's kids don't know sacrifice. They think a sacrifice is not having coverage on their phone while they freely drive across the country.  Today's kids are selfish and spoiled.  In my generation, we looked out for our elders.  We helped out with single moms who's husbands were either at war or dead from war.  Today's kids rush the store, buying everything they can...no concern for anyone but themselves.  It's shameful the way Americans behave these days.  None of them deserve the sacrifices their granddads made.

So, no I don't need anything.  I appreciate your offer but, I know I've been through worse things than this virus.  But maybe I should be asking you, what can I do to help you?  Do you have enough pop to get through this, enough steak?  Will you be able to survive with 113 channels on your tv?"

I smiled, fighting back a tear of my own...now humbled by a man in his 80's.  All I could do was thank him for the history lesson, leave my number for emergency and leave with my ego firmly tucked in my rear.

I talked to a man today.  A real man.  An American man from an era long gone and forgotten.  We will never understand the sacrifices.  We will never fully earn their sacrifices.  But we should work harder to learn about them..learn from them...to respect them.

An article in the Sunday paper sayin that they're gonna start makin hand sanitizer in a Ia prison, like NY, all from donated materials & the state will be giving it away free. It went on to say that Winnebago is donating some of their RV's to the people out in Calif who are on the front lines treating the really sick & have been sleepin in their cars.  :happy1: :cool: Despite their training & protecting gear they are concerned that they'll eventually get the virus so there are afraid to go home & infect their families. :crazy: :pouty:

Harvey Weinstein tests positive for coronavirus, report says


Convicted rapist and disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein tested positive for coronavirus, the head of the New York state corrections officers union told Reuters.

Weinstein, 68, was transferred to Wende Correctional Facility, a maximum-security state prison east of Buffalo, NY, on Wednesday. There, he tested positive for coronavirus, Michael Powers, president of the New York State Correctional Officers and Police Benevolent Association, learned on Sunday and told Reuters.

Weinstein is currently in isolation at the prison, Powers said, and several staff at the facility have also been quarantined.

I worked from Sunday and I'm done Wednesday and then off for some time.  I feel sorry most for the cashiers.  The management gave everyone a $2 raise plus instead of time and a half for overtime it's double time.  Fine but the cashiers work part time and it's only the $2 raise which I'm sure they like.  They are two feet from the customer, they have no choice.  They don't get the double overtime like the full timers.  That's wrong.  They should get a $10 dollar raise.  This raise is till April 15 and then everything goes back to normal as far as pay.  You would think the employers who are getting more than double the buisness could afford to give the cashiers a big boost.  Come Wednesday this guy is staying home.  I did not hoard anything.  I could get all the meat every day no problem with no limit [except ground beef] every day.  But I got a big freezer and I have bought sale stuff over time and I'm set.  There is plenty of meat to be had.  We have had ground beef mostly ground at the store for folks.  We limited it to 3 packs per person.  Some limit it to one per person.  It's the hoarders who are the problem.  Stop it. There are family's with more kids than you have.  Think about it.  There are senior people out there who need stuff.  THink about that.  The meat manager orders a lot of stuff every day.  Today he had  three pages of shortages.  I'm sure there are other managers who see the same thing.  Milk, eggs are another short items outside of meats.  Of course there is TP.  I had a guy that went to a gas station and got it but the big stores didn't have it.  Early bird gets the worm.  I see paper towels are more in the shelves.  So anyway hope everyone is doing well.  good luck

Went to ALDI this am for some more fake eggs (egg substitute) None. Same at two other places, Guess that's another hot commodity. However, place was overflowing with choice meats...pig chops, pig roasts, pig steaks, stew meat, beef roast, (chuck, round, and tip) steaks, hamburger, chicky thighs, legs, drumsticks, whole chicky's....came home with a couple pigger roasts and some pks of good ol' bone in chops. Tons of bread, rolls, etc. Got a pkg of brioche rolls. Deli was packed...got some cranberry -almond chicky salad for sandwiches, a bag of apple, 'nanners, lettuce., clamshell of cherry 'maters.....only thing they were out of is TP, for the first time. But they have limits of 1 per person.   Shelves full of canned veggies.  Got some canned corn which everyone has been out of, and a couple cans of tuna. Did have lots of paper towels, though. I sure like that store.  :smiley:

Yes, it is interesting to see what is gone from grocery store shelves.  However, the stores are generally doing a good job of getting stuff restocked as soon as possible.

A few days ago there wasn't a stick of dried pasta on the shelves.  Yesterday there were a few cases of Creamettes stocked.  Eggs are miss and hit.  No skim milk.  Some folks are going to have a lot of Campbells soup to eat when this is all over.  Perhaps the silver lining is most of everyone's overstock will eventually to go the food banks.

Also, the shelves were completely wiped out of toilet bowl cleaner.  Go figure.  Who'd a thunk?  This is a respiratory virus, not gastrointestinal.  Suddenly now everyone is worried about how they are going to clean their toilets 4 weeks from now?   :confused:

A few days ago there wasn't a stick of dried pasta on the shelves.  Yesterday there were a few cases of Creamettes stocked.  Eggs are miss and hit.  No skim milk.  Some folks are going to have a lot of Campbells soup to eat when this is all over.  Perhaps the silver lining is most of everyone's overstock will eventually to go the food banks.

Also, the shelves were completely wiped out of toilet bowl cleaner.  Go figure.  Who'd a thunk?  This is a respiratory virus, not gastrointestinal.  Suddenly now everyone is worried about how they are going to clean their toilets 4 weeks from now?   :confused:


Hardly any soups here...those shelves have been bare for weeks here. I don't eat canned soop, anyway, except once in a GREAT while a can of tomato with toasted cheese. That is nowhere to be found.
Eggs and milk are always at Kwik-Trip.....have been here anyway. I even got an E-mail from them since I have a rewards card that they WILL have fresh supplies of milk and eggs daily. Any type of disinfecting sprays, wipes, bowl cleaners are gone. I tried to buy dish washing soap last week,  NOT. Only place that had any was Menards. Not sure what the deal is with bathroom cleaning.....maybe they just don't get it. Even bleach is gone. :rolleyes:

Well, all that food cost me only $43. Meat is not spendy there like Sly-Vee and other places. Family pk of BIG chicky thighs (12 of 'em) $5.45, Family pk (6) of big pig chops was $5.69; got two. Two bacon-wrapped beef tenderloins, $4.69 Pork shoulder roast,$4.69...........Noticed they all come from a midwest source/processor, and it's GOOD meat!

Question for you Reb: Has Aldi's switched away from you bringing your own bags with the coronavirus situation and do they have disposable bags to use? Just curious.

Talk about Big Brother...

For Moscow's quarantined, 100,000 cameras are watching (https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/for-moscows-quarantined-100000-cameras-are-watching/ar-BB11BTu0)

A vast and contentious network of facial recognition cameras keeping watch over Moscow is now playing a key role in the battle against the spread of the coronavirus in Russia.

The city rolled out the technology just before the epidemic reached Russia, ignoring protests and legal complaints over sophisticated state surveillance.

Since last month, thousands of Muscovites have been confined to their homes for 14 days of compulsory quarantine after returning from virus-hit countries, being in contact with those infected or diagnosed with mild symptoms.

Police have logged their details and warned them that sneaking out into the city of 16 million residents and daily visitors could lead to a five-year jail term or deportation for foreigners.

"We are constantly checking that this regulation is being observed, including through the use of automated facial recognition systems," Mayor Sergei Sobyanin wrote in his blog in February.

A little surpised by that as some places are not allowing people to bring their own bags or containers into the store as a precautionary measure. You can do whatever you like once outside however. Not that I think it makes any difference but that's what's happening in places across the country.

Rochester City Council requests shelter-in-place from Walz, temporarily prohibits parking meter enforcement

ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- The Rochester City Council has announced new measures in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to a news release from the City of Rochester, the City Council is requesting Gov. Tim Walz issue an executive order for further restrictions, including:

All persons living in Minnesota stay in their place of residence subject to exceptions.

Prohibit all public and private gatherings outside of a household or living unit.
Closing all non‐essential businesses.

The release said the city administration has also issued a 30-day prohibition of parking meter enforcement effective immediately. The City Council said this is subject to change as necessary "to meet the needs of the community," and that businesses that require parking for take-out services can get a permit from the Public Works Department.

The news release said drivers are asked to only park in metered spaces for short term use. Additionally, last week the City announced an end to season parking requirements. The City also suspended enforcement of residential parking permit zones until the end of the month.

"All other parking ordinances remain in effect including no parking zones (including driveways, fire hydrants, and mailboxes), and overnight parking restrictions. Please observe all posted signs  in the downtown area," the City of Rochester said in the news release.

More information can be found on the City's website.

I understand that. But this is CAWchester, dear. They think they run the country. Therein lies the prob.....demanding Walz issue the order. They know something they're NOT telling us?  :scratch:


From Rochester's post:

Closing all non‐essential businesses.



Pretty much a basic SIP order...it's just the demands this town makes that fry's my azz. Not to mention my taxes just went up to $2,300 from the $2,000 that was a 31.4 % increase...plus DOUBLING their salaries!  Bunch of damned psychos!

Tons of bread, rolls, etc. Got a pkg of brioche rolls. Deli was packed...got some cranberry -almond chicky salad for sandwiches, a bag of apple, 'nanners, lettuce., clamshell of cherry 'maters.....only thing they were out of is TP, for the first time. But they have limits of 1 per person.   Shelves full of canned veggies.  Got some canned corn which everyone has been out of, and a couple cans of tuna. Did have lots of paper towels, though. I sure like that store.  :smiley:

American Cancer Society closing all 34 of its Hope Lodge locations, including Rochester's



The American Cancer Society is closing the Rochester Hope Lodge amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Residents at the Sandra J. Schulze American Cancer Society Hope Lodge, 411 2nd St. NW, were told late last week to seek new accommodations.

The Hope Lodge offers free housing for cancer patients while they receive treatment at Mayo Clinic.

The American Cancer Society confirmed the closure Tuesday, adding that all 34 of its active locations across the U.S. will be closed.

Officials at the Atlanta-based organization said they had been monitoring the spread of the illness and did not take the decision lightly.

“We’re facing difficult times and difficult decisions,” said Dr. Len Lichtenfeld, deputy chief medical officer at the American Cancer Society. “This is one of many of those decisions we all will have to make.”

As the virus began to circulate via community transmission and with orders to shelter in place issued in multiple states and cities, the nonprofit could no longer guarantee the virus wouldn't spread into one of the lodges, Lichtenfeld said.

Most of the cancer patients staying there have compromised immune systems and are especially susceptible to the virus, he said.

“If the COVID-19 virus came into a Hope Lodge, it would cause immense impact to patients and caregivers immediately,” Lichtenfeld said. “Our guests are a very high-risk group.”

Staff at the Hope Lodges don’t qualify as essential employees where shelter-in-place orders have been issued, he added, making staffing the Hope Lodges difficult in areas where that order is in place, he said.

Sam Stearns and his wife, Geneil, traveled 600 miles from Pope County, Ill., for cancer treatment. They said the opportunity to stay at the lodge has been a relief financially and mentally.

“If we were having to spend our meager savings on lodging, there would be a meter running continuously in the back of my head,” Sam Stearns said.

The couple said they received a good deal at the Centerstone and are relieved lodging won’t be a concern while Sam finishes 21 remaining rounds of treatment over the next few weeks.

He said worrying about finances wouldn't have been conducive to healing. After his remaining treatments, he plans to return to Illinois to continue his retirement career of environmental activism.

The couple packed their car Tuesday afternoon while the remaining guests also departed.

Word came to residents Thursday that they would need to find another place to stay by Tuesday night. About 55 patients were staying at the Hope Lodge when the decision was made, Lichtenfeld said. The Rochester Hope Lodge is one of the busier and consistently occupied of the Hope Lodges operated by the American Cancer Society because of its proximity to Mayo Clinic and the draw it has, he added.

Lichtenfeld said he and other American Cancer Society leaders were watching as the COVID-19 virus began to spread. He said the Hope Lodge staff implemented measures to protect residents, including restricting visitors, limiting vendor visits, and eventually banning guests and asking that they stay in their rooms.

Those measures reassured Don Klontz, of Fargo, who is receiving cancer treatment at Mayo Clinic and was staying at the Hope Lodge. He moved across the street to the Brentwood Inn, where he has stayed before and plans to stay for his remaining nine rounds of treatments for a rare cancer.

“I felt safe there,” he said. “They did a good job.”

Klontz said he feels for the staff who will be laid off due to the closures.

He said staying at public hotels could increase some cancer patients’ exposure to the COVID-19 virus. However, on Tuesday, he noted few visitors at the Brentwood Inn.

“You’ll be glad to have me back,” he said to a clerk there.

Meanwhile, Lichtenfeld said many hospitals and clinics are postponing some procedures and treatments.

“That takes some of the burden off these lodges,” he said, adding that it also means there are other accommodation options for Hope Lodge guests.

Lichtenfeld said he understands the closures will be a burden for some patients and caregivers and not everyone will easily find other accommodations.

“We have other programs and partnerships with hotels,” he said. “But I don’t know if we’ll be able to meet every need … but we hope to meet everyone’s needs.”

(In other words, let's not admit our hurried screwed-up reporting) HOWEVER, if food businesses want to have people park at meters for take-out, they will now need to apply for and get a special online permit...WTH?!??!  And this town is supposed to be helping people during this time??!

Then I found a story that said, "Prince Charles has tested positive for the Corona-19 virus."

Enough with the famous people testing positive stories. :mad1:

Many (or I starting to worry that most) people are going to get this virus.  We just hope it isn't everyone all at once so that the most serious cases can be dealt with in hospital.

Food prep areas, hands touch food, face, utensils, countertops, 'fridge handles and inside drawers, etc. IMO, that would be the #1 place where it spreads. I wiped off everything I brought home from the store yday, and sprayed the counters down with a mixture of bleach and water I always have in the kitchen, and have for years. Guy at ALDI told me yday, there's also no returns on anything. Found out it's the same now with most stores, so ya better make sure ya got what ya want.

Just read on it Rebs.  It said it is a different strain but they are seeing a lot of people interested in the dog vaccine now with this going on.  They said it won't help for Covid-19.  They also said if you get it you should isolate your pets from you so you don't get the virus on your pets fur which can then spread to humans that come in contact with them.  I'm thinking if one of us gets it in our household it will be too late and we both will get it.  SO noone else will be petting our dogs but us.

Gonna hurt the restaurant/bar/food biz big time...stay closed until MAY 1st....yikes.

 I recorded it....so no mistakes there. Even re-watched it.

Copy/pasted off the video:

The order is expected to slow the spread of COVID-19 and allow the state to continue to prepare for the pandemic. Walz also said the closure of schools and the use of distance learning will be used through May 4.Bars and restaurants are also expected to remain closed through May 1.

Another COVID hot commodity: Isopropyl alcohol and alcohol wipes. (For injection)
Picked up my 'scrip at Walfart (Only reason I still go there) and went to grab a box of the alcohol little wipes ya use before injections. None. Figgered I'll just grab a bottle of alcohol and use cotton balls. NOT. Both those all gone. Girl said they just sat a case out 2 hours ago, and it goes *POOF* Another example of PUT LIMITS ON THINGs!!!!  :angry: So, SlyVee is right on the way, ran into their Pharm, same thing. All three gone. But, got to see an older lady just RIPPIN' the SlyVee store manager, and she was DEFCON 1! Hollering at him about why is everything not stocked that's in their ad from yday, if it isn't here, don't advertise it".... He replied that "We can't tell people how much they can buy..." Lady just hollered back in his face "YOU EVER HEARD OF LIMITS?!"  :happy1: Boy, she had him nailed! Best show I've seen!
Ran across street to Walgreen's, same thing. NADA. Asked pharmacy dude if they had ANY alcohol wipes....he said ya, I've got one box left back here you can have"....lucky me. He also said he was keeping bottles of alcohol back there for folks that needed it for injections and such...smart move. At least there's SOME people with common sense left.

OK, so I worked Sunday through yesterday.  Here is what I have seen in just one Cub store as of yesterday.  The last two weeks has been hell in the grocery buisness.  What they have goes out and it was gone.  As far as meat the last two weeks was the meatcutters were cutting like crazy.  We got the meat in and processed it and the next day we come to a empty counter.  I mean empty.  Hard to get was ground beef and chicken, the top two. 

Now as of Sunday things slowed down.  Chicken was easy to get.  The meat counters began to look normal again.  Still some shortages on frozen items like Jimmy Dean sauasage and other product like that with different brands.  Some lunch meat items are still hard to get and rope sausage items like kielbasa or ring bologna for example.  We have been filling the counter with store trim ground beef.  I ground 400 pounds of ground beef Monday am and it was gone by noon.  We had a limit of 3 packs per person.  This was from the trim of the various cuts plus we threw in cut up sirloin tips and bottom rounds and whole pieces of arm roasts.  So chicken, beef cuts, and pork cuts are now in stock except chucks.  Ads are run in advance but I think they should stop running ads for awhile. 

Now for those that are upset at empty grocery shelves,  many customers are at fault, not the stores.  Inventory cost money.  So most suppliers keep maybe 3 months of inventory on products.  Well that 3 months of inventory was gone in 10 days because of the horders.  The media driven panic worked.  They had the items and it would have been on the shelves had people just bought what they needed when they went shopping.  Some stores were at fault also by putting limits on items too late in the game.  Our store did 4 time the buisness in two weeks.  Meat department was up 225% from the same time period from last year.  Also at this time stores are limited to ordering [as far as grocery and dairy] to so many pieces per delivery so all stores can get some stuff.  Some people can't understand that the stores do NOT like empty shelves.  Thats a revenue loss for them. 

I had a "Lady" come up to me and yell at me "why are you hiding the ground beef in the back room from customers".   I'm pretty calm most of the time.  I asked her why we would do that and loose sales.  She didn't care.  I told her that the shop trim today is the same percentage of lean to fat ratio and very fresh daily and at the same price.  Nope,  she wanted that 3 pound tube that's shipped in.  Another woman complained about the empty grocery shelves on some items.  I explained to her what I described above.  I also told her that she will see this in all stores.  Milk has been shorted and eggs are really hard to get.  get in about 1/4 of those items that we normally get.  I think if you go to a Kwik Trip type gas station you would have better luck.  I see milk and eggs there.  Anyway things are  slowing down and more products should be showing up in the stores [except toilet paper still].  good luck.

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.

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.

Trump orders General Motors to produce ventilators under Defense Production Act

March 27, 2020

DETROIT (AP) -- President Donald Trump has issued an order that seeks to force General Motors to produce ventilators for coronavirus patients under the Defense Production Act.

Trump says negotiations with General Motors had been productive, "but our fight against the virus is too urgent to allow the give-and-take of the union contracting process to continue to run its normal course."

Trump says "GM was wasting time" and says his actions will help ensure the quick production of ventilators that will save American lives.


Donald J. Trump

@realDonaldTrump
General Motors MUST immediately open their stupidly abandoned Lordstown plant in Ohio, or some other plant, and START MAKING VENTILATORS, NOW!!!!!!  FORD, GET GOING ON VENTILATORS, FAST!!!!!!  @GeneralMotors  @Ford

I'm glad he did this.  Must be in full production mode.  GM is getting paid and so are the workers.  It's a win for them and the people of this country who will need them.  I hope they make too many of them.  Good to be prepared for the future.  I heard also among others My Pillow is making masks now also.  good luck.

Communities are turning to distilleries for their ability to produce high-content alcohol products at a time when traditional commercial-brand hand sanitizers have been all but wiped out from store shelves as a means to combat the coronavirus.

As a result, local distilleries are making sanitizers to donate to those on the front lines. Some distilleries are also making the sanitizers available to the public.

“Some have switched completely over from a distillery to a hand sanitizer manufacturing facility,” said Mark Schiller, president of the Minnesota Distillers Guild. “You go one day from shutting down your cocktail room to the next day being able to produce a health care substance.”

Schiller said things changed exponentially in the past week after the Federal Drug Administration and Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau Federal agencies lifted restrictions to allow distilleries to make sanitizers and offered guidance, including a recommended sanitizer recipe from the World Health Organization with the recommended 70 percent or more alcohol solution.

“Now that we actually have guidance and approval to do this — some places were holding off until we had that — many of us have shifted some or all of our entire production capacity of making spirits to hand sanitizers,” said Schiller, who is also co-founder of Loon Liquor Co. distillery in Northfield. “There are health organizations, first responders, day cares and other organizations in Minnesota that are running extremely low on hand sanitizer. Distilleries have the ability, and are starting to fulfill and help the needs of their communities.”

In Minnesota, at least eight distilleries have started making sanitizers, and that number is expected to grow.

Doing so takes an army.

“Essentially there are quite a few hurdles,” Schiller said.

In addition to high-proof alcohols, there are two other main ingredients — hydrogen peroxide and glycerin — in order to make sanitizers. As a result, distillers have been working with companies such as Triton Chemical out of Lakeville to provide supplies to distilleries.

And with making sanitizers comes costs for supplies, and some distilleries are asking for the public’s help with donations. Donation sites such as GoFundMe pages have been set up.

“Everyone is just trying to make sure that they can sustain their efforts,” Schiller said.

He said other challenges have been running out of containers to put product in, so some distilleries have started asking the public to drop off supplies or bring their own containers.

With so many sanitizer production sites starting up in the past week, distilleries are in talks to coordinate efforts to have a centralized place where the public can find information on how to obtain sanitizers. A website is expected to be up and running soon.

Auto manufacturers can't just flip a switch and the lines start turning out ventilators. I think Ford is projecting it will be 100 days. Trump got puzzled at GM because they told him the truth in terms of time and cost.

CAWchester closed down the Recycle Center, the grass dump, the garbage drop off, (For folks that don't have a garbage man, like in the country) and the compost pile site. Guess they expect the folks with garbage to let it pile up sky high like in NY during the 70's. Smart move, CAWchester. Like that's a huge social gathering site... :rolleyes:

Gun sales soar amid coronavirus outbreak



Spikes in gun sales typically follow mass shootings or the elections of presidents who are Democrats, as gun owners fear government restrictions on future firearms sales.

But first-time gun buyers are fueling a recent surge in Minnesota gun sales. And the coronavirus pandemic is the main reason for their purchases, said John Munson, a gun store owner.

“A lot of new buyers that don’t own firearms are saying, ‘hey, I’ve got to stay at home. I’ve got to plan for two weeks,’” said Munson, owner of Bill’s Gun Shop, which has three stores, including one in Hudson, Wis. “They’re looking at the worst-case scenario, saying, ‘maybe now is the time that I would want to pick up a firearm to defend myself or my family at home.”

Munson said his stores saw “extreme numbers of people coming through the doors” during a recent weekend — 1,300 to 1,400 people per day. He said that’s probably three times the sales he’d normally see at this time of year.

“We’re seeing a lot more home defense shopping now,” said Munson. “A lot of shotguns and small-caliber rifles.”

The higher demand for guns comes at the same time Munson is short-staffed. About a dozen of his 85 employees can’t work because of their vulnerability to the virus or out of concern for their health. And the store employees who remain on the job are also making sure to enforce social distancing protocols in the stores and on the gun ranges.

Munson said he always encourages gun buyers to take in-store safety courses. However, those classes won’t be available for a while.

“We’re putting all classes on hold until May 1,” said Munson. “Simply because we don’t have the resources to operate the shop in its full hours, in its full capacity.”

The National Rifle Association has announced that first-time gun owners who need training during this time can access its YouTube channel promoting “mentor videos” with gun safety basics, maintenance and storage tips.

To buy a pistol or a semi-automatic assault style rifle in Minnesota from a gun store like Bill's Gun Shop, a person has to have either a permit to carry a handgun or obtain a permit to purchase. County sheriffs issue permits to carry. Permits to purchase are available through local police departments — or in smaller communities, sheriff's offices.

Minneapolis police have seen a 35 percent increase in permits sought during the first three months of this year compared to the same period last year.

St. Paul has seen the number of permit applications rise from an average of four or five per day to more than 30 per day.

In Brooklyn Park, there has been a nearly 200 percent increase in purchase applications so far this month compared to all of March 2019.

Brooklyn Park Police Deputy Chief Mark Bruley said the vast majority of those permit applications are being made by people who have not applied for a permit to buy a gun before.

“I think as people struggle with the fear and anxiety of the pandemic and what that means, I think people are dealing with it in different ways,” said Bruley. “I don’t think I totally understand why we’re out of toilet people and why we’re buying that en masse, but I think people are just trying to deal with it in their own way. And for some reason, some people feel the need to have a gun.”

Bruley said residents shouldn’t be afraid that the police department will not be able to help them in a time of need. Right now, he said calls for service are at normal levels.

Bruley said he supports peoples’ Second Amendment rights to own guns. But he wants to make sure people — especially first-time gun buyers — are prepared to take on the responsibility.

“I don’t want them to minimize how important it is to make sure that gun is secured; that they know how to handle it; and that they keep it away from children or people that should not have access to that gun,” said Bruley, who adds that an improperly stored gun is more likely to be stolen than to be used in self-defense.

There are other risks associated with having guns in homes.

A gun in the home is also associated with higher risks of suicide and domestic homicide.

And according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 60 percent of gun deaths are the result of suicide. In Minnesota, 4 out of 5 gun deaths are suicides.

“Access to guns does increase the relationship with suicide,” said Sue Abderholden, executive director of the National Alliance on Mental Illness Minnesota.

Abderholden said she wants people to be extra careful about bringing a gun into the home right now.

“We have more children at home. Kids are not in school right now,” said Abderholden. “We have increased depression and anxiety among our population. So, you want to make sure gun storage and restricting access to lethal means is also happening at the same pace.”

Abderholden recommends to remove the guns from the home entirely if someone in the home is experiencing depression.

Or GM over promised some to get the deal. Hard to tell, even reading the big story in wsj today.

Certainly seems as if the government got the wrong idea somehow as to what the time frame and cost would be.

Reb, you better get to the store and pick up enough rolls of tin foil to cover your ceilings, also hanging pop cans from the ceiling will scramble the radio waves.
Good luck.

With no ICU beds and no ventilators, vacation town residents implore tourists to stay home



BAUDETTE, Minn. — An uproar on Lake of the Woods social media last week highlighted what some call a long-standing rift in local resort towns between vacationers and year-round residents.

“There’s a great divide in this area about what is lake and what is town, who is local and who is not,” said Mike Kinsella, who owns Border View Lodge in Baudette. “It’s kind of unfortunate in the way that it’s, without a doubt, the opposite of 'Minnesota Nice.' ”

The rancor comes after the Lake of the Woods and neighboring Koochiching County commissioners voted Tuesday, March 24, to close county-controlled access points to the Rainy River in an effort to slow the influx of visitors to the area amid COVID-19 concerns. The Lake of the Woods board will revisit the decision at its meeting on April 14.

Baudette Mayor Rick Rone said the backlash on Facebook is not representative of the majority of either permanent residents or visiting anglers, and the vast majority of people are understanding of the board's decision in unprecedented times.

Still, Kinsella, who also sits on the Lake of the Woods Tourism Board, fears there will be long-term impacts on tourism to the area.

“These tourists, these people that are ‘going to kill everybody’s grandma,’ I think their responses are, ‘OK, we’ll remember, and we’ll go to places that want us to be there,' ” he said. “So yeah, there’s going to be a long-term effect.”

Gregg Hennum, owner of Sportsman’s Lodge in Baudette, said the tensions started around the same time the fear started.

As news of more positive COVID-19 cases in Minnesota reached the North Shore in the far northeast part of the state, year-round residents took to social media to tell tourists to go home, expressing fear that visitors from other areas would bring the virus with them to the small vacation towns or buy up items already in short supply at local grocery stores.

Lake of the Woods Tourism Bureau Director Joe Henry said tourists had largely stopped coming to the area. He said, over the past few weeks, resorts have had to give tens of thousands of dollars in refunds for canceled reservations. Kinsella said, on one recent weekend, he had more than 100 bookings, five of which showed up.

In some ways, Henry said, it is fortunate the outbreak happened when it did. As businesses across the state scaled back operations and locked down, only the tail end of a robust winter ice fishing season was impacted, around the time when many resorts would be closing their books on the season anyway.

But Hennum said that healthy winter season, which drew huge numbers of visiting ice fishing enthusiasts, could now be contributing to some of the pushback against tourists.

Anglers logged a record 2 million hours of fishing pressure during the winter of 2018-19 on Lake of the Woods, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. Numbers from this winter aren't yet available, but the estimate is expected to be every bit as high, if not higher.

"There's been an invisible wall between the town and the resorts for 40 years," Hennum said. "Nothing major. Just slight disagreements. But as soon as the fear factor started to build, that's when people, I noticed, started to get a little more vocal."

Henry said many walleye anglers consider the first two weeks of April to be the greater loss. He said the first half of April offers some of the best walleye fishing of the year, which in the “Walleye Capital of the World” draws anglers from across the Midwest.

He said that he understands the frustrations on both sides, from the fear of the year-round residents to the loss of a treasured tradition for walleye anglers.

"I mean, we had one person call us and say, 'I just want to verify that those accesses are actually closed. I've been coming up there from Rochester for 50 years, and this will be the first year I haven't fished the river,' " Henry said.

On social media, and especially in community Facebook groups, anglers argued that fishing is inherently an act of social distancing. Year-round residents argued, on the other hand, that anglers still congregate at access points, in gas stations and in grocery stores. Kinsella said, at some of the bitterest points preceding the commissioners’ decision to close access points, he saw some threatening to block access to roadways or commit other acts of violence against visitors.

Lake of the Woods County Sheriff Gary Fish couldn't be reached for comment by this publication's press deadline, but a Koochiching County dispatcher said there have been no reports resulting from threats seen on social media.

Hennum said he's not that active on social media, and so hasn't seen the vitriol he's heard about secondhand. Does he believe those threats will spill over into the offline world?

"Of course not," he said.

Rone emphasized the distinction between social media and real life and said that, while it’s easy to air frustrations from behind a computer screen, at the end of the day, Lake of the Woods residents are just scared of what effect the virus could have on their community with limited access to emergency medical care.

According to Rone, the LakeWood Health Center in Baudette has no ICU beds and no ventilators, and, after the departure of two doctors, the hospital is staffed by a single physician.

Henry said that fact has likely been a driving factor behind much of the online vitriol.

"During times like this when there's a lot of anxiety, you get all sorts of different emotions coming out," he said.

Been doing some research.....and found out there has been a surveillance plane down around this area....and look what I found.....that's the plane, in the pic! Almost positive! I've flown in a lot of small planes; my Mom's husband was a pilot, I flew with him, as he flew a lot. Spent a lot of time around them years back. Was going to go for my pilots license, but too many irons in the fire as it was.  About same height as I saw it, too......I'd guess 1000-1200 ft of air, since 1000 ft is minimum over populated areas.  I'm convinced now.

Same as when we did pre-scouting and set-ups for the prez and high-end others. All possible scenarios have to be noted and and dealt with, like overhead mapping of routes....I have an Email into my logistics /HICS buddy right now, I'll let ya know if he gives me any info.

I should take my buddies over there too...but he won't even answer his door......why's that? Is he afraid of getting it?!


The governor also addressed concerns that some Minnesotans are not respecting the stay-at-home and social-distancing orders.

"Minnesotans have done a pretty good job," Walz said, "but we need to do better ... This is not about whether you feel good and want to get out and do this activity. This is about the fact that you may be an asymptomatic carrier and could hurt someone else or their family. You need to just assume you have it, and just assume whoever else out you see out there has it."

Aside from getting feed once or twice a week, a semi-weekly grocery run, necessary work runs to pay bills, do some banking & get the mail every few days, it's meant lots of time at home. We don't waste time when we go either. Get in & get out. A lot less exposure than we had considering she was working 6-7 days a week and I was to town and back most days twice with work & checking for lambs at noon. I look at this as retirement practice.

Hey Reb.   The Minnesota Stasi has a hotline for anti-social folks like them.

-------------------------------
ov. Tim Walz said he supports the hotline number set up to let Minnesotans report on violations of social distancing guidelines, despite complaints that it represents a form of Big Brother with neighbors reporting on neighbors. Senate Majority Leader Paul Gazelka wrote on Twitter: “Please take this hotline down @GovTimWalz  It’s not necessary and it’s not how Minnesotans want to treat each other. We can all show a bit of kindness to our neighbors as we manage our times and needs differently in the stay at home efforts.”

“We simply want people to be able to call and let folks know and it’s for their own good,” Walz said. The governor compared it to numbers where people can report fires.

“If we see people who might not be as informed on this, it’s an educational piece,” he said. “We’re not gonna take down a telephone number that allows people to try to keep their neighbors safe.” The numbers and email address are: 651-793-3746 or email SAHviolation@state.mn.us.

since this order has been put in place, I went to the Union Hall once and for a drive around the lakes. my wife went to st cloud to do some banking and get grub at cashwise. that is it. she did say they have 6 ft apart markings on floor at checkout and the barricade between the cashier and customer.

I need to go to the Hall again today. other then its a you cant or shouldn't go out and about the mere fact you shouldn't makes this a little tougher, but this really isn't out of the norm of what we do otherwise. we just don't meander out and about a lot.

I am glad we are taking all of these precautions but it would sure be nice to find out things are improving at a faster rate than we expected.  We can't let up on our precautions though.  It is still a real threat to all of us.  A person in Rainy River, right across the river from us has Covid now.  They did come from the US.  Canada at this time hasn't released any info that could be helpful to all of us.  Such as: was this person hanging out in Baudette for any length of time, or shopping in stores or being around people here?

You can include the our govenor here as she just came out yday keeping our Stay at Home in place until  4/30. She has also come out & said she doesn't believe her own DOH experts who are sayin it'll be a late peak here & could reach 1300 deaths.  :scratch:  I' m with you LPS as these days I lean more to the other line of thinkin where it's better to over do it out front than to wish you had after. :tut: :crazy:

On a more up beat note, there's a small auto shop here in town that is making face shields with the help of their 3D printer & they're giving them away! :happy1: :cool: The local 1st responders were some of the 1st to get some. Takes 20 minutes for them to make the frame part that holds the shield in place, they made a few thousand of them so far.

 :surrender: :surrender: :scratch: :scratch: :scratch:

What part do you think they don't have a clue about?   We know the essential part, it is a serious disease that can really f*** you up, especially if you are older and/or not in perfect health, and it is pretty contagious when people are close together, like in a church service or a soccer game or even maybe a crowded store.    And folks are contagious before they get very sick.   

Oh, and most places are not prepared for a whole bunch of people who are really sick all at the same time.   

And there really isn't much we can do about it until the experts find a treatment of sorts, and eventually come up with a vaccine that works and doesn't kill folks.  And that will be a while.   

If it doesn't go away in summer like the flu and colds mostly do, it will be a long year.  And an ugly one.   

So until then we need to stay away from anyone that might have it, far enough away that they can't give it to us.   If you are young and healthy and want to gamble, that would be ok, but then you just make it harder for everyone else once you get it, even if it doesn't make you that sick.   

Meanwhile for some of us, going out and being around people is like playing russian roulette. 

All the rest of the news and information is just noise, although it can be entertaining or interesting noise.   



That's my take.

I am glad we are taking all of these precautions but it would sure be nice to find out things are improving at a faster rate than we expected.  We can't let up on our precautions though.  It is still a real threat to all of us.  A person in Rainy River, right across the river from us has Covid now.  They did come from the US.  Canada at this time hasn't released any info that could be helpful to all of us.  Such as: was this person hanging out in Baudette for any length of time, or shopping in stores or being around people here?
I was often wondering that also, why aren't they telling us where these cases are?? other then just to the county level. watching the news yesterday there is some controversy regarding public information  and the HIPPA law.

Title: Re: corona pandemic~
Post by: Dotch on April 03, 2020, 11:22:56 AM
Oh but ya gotta trust the numbers coming out of China, glenn!  ;) :rotflmao:

The numbers themselves even if they're correct don't tell the whole story. At some point reason and critical thinking needs to take over. Have listened to NY Gov. Cuomo's blathering ad nauseum this week. So far he's tried to tell the rest of the country how they should go about managing their own situations, saying the other day that the rest of the country would end up just like New York because there are places in upstate New York where cows outnumber people. Wait a minute, here's a guy who a few months back said they had everything under control. Now he's got a helluva mess on his hands and has spent a lot of time pointing fingers and blaming people, particularly the federal govt. Probably not a guy I want to pay a lot of attention to. I seriously doubt that upstate New York = North Dakota or South Dakota or western MN for that matter in terms of population density. My closest neighbor is half a mile away even here in SC MN.

When I went to town yesterday to keep the business operating, I stopped at the grocery store quick. Saw a few people I knew but our conversations were brief and we all practiced more than proper social distancing. Having dealt with confinement livestock, at home and through work all these years, I'd like to think I have a concept of what can go wrong when animals including people are crowded together. When I read so much of what is on social media news feeds or even to an extent from the TC, it is geared solely towards those in urban settings. If I were to interpret a lot of what they're writing or saying verbatim, I wouldn't even go out of the house to do chores. Should shut down everything, go hide in the basement and the government will save me.  :bs:  :angry:

Received this yesterday from a friend in his newsletter. He has helped develop models for predicting pest outbreaks and as part of developing economic thresholds for treatment decisions. It's for plant insect and disease management mind you but a lot of the same science still applies. Sorta put things in perspective for me.

"Whether waiting out the pandemic confined to our homes or out on the essential service front lines, most folks now ponder the coronavirus and its current and potential effects on our lives and livelihood.

Are the ever-changing estimates of infection rates, mortality predictions, and flattened curves we are bombarded with right… or wrong? At some point, hindsight will tell us. For now, it is important to remember that these numbers are based on mathematical models; models with limited data on actual infection rates, and on the physical, physiological, and pharmaceutical factors moderating the COVID-19 virus and the disease it causes. They are only predictive models and the odds of the currently calculated best/worst case scenarios being correct are low. They will continue to change as new information is generated and incorporated. When this year’s pandemic is over, the models will be pretty good at describing what happened. Model outputs are seldom entirely accurate, being close enough to be useful is often good enough. So for now, be safe and avoid fear - don’t be stupid either."

The Truth?  You can't handle the truth..  (sorry just channeling jack nicholson there for a minute).    What numbers are people questioning?   Mostly they think there are a lot more folks sick walking around than testing indicates.   Not much evidence things are being over hyped, except by a few dumb or slimy politicians trying to get some sort of advantage.   If anything, some places were late implementing precautions and scaring people so as not to tank the economy.   

And what the h*** is this crap about "considering people's livelyhoods"?  Like, leave the bars open so people can go cough all over everyone?     :angry2: :tut: :thumbs:

Here is a graph from the MN, Health web site.  The Cumulative line looks really bad but the one that counts is pretty level.  If the daily new cases line at the bottom starts rising it's a different ball game, but right now it's staying pretty flat.  Same with the Death graph.  If they ran these numbers to the total population in MN 5.6 mil it would not be as scary.  Yes it could turn that way. It would be good if they also showed the recovered rates as well.

Remdesivir is a drug that possibly could be used to treat covid.

Gilead ramps up production of experimental Covid-19 treatment amid criticism over access
By ED SILVERMAN @PharmalotAPRIL 5, 2020
Hepatitis Drugs
ERIC RISBERG/AP
In response to intensifying demand, Gilead Sciences (GILD) has been ramping up production of its experimental remdesivir treatment that is being tested to combat the novel coronavirus.

The drug maker now has 1.5 million individual dosages that could be used for more than 140,000 patients and is supplying the medicine, which is being made available through clinical trials and special access programs, at no charge.

“Providing our existing supplies at no charge is the right thing to do, to facilitate access to patients as quickly as possible and in recognition of the public emergency posed by this pandemic,” Gilead chief executive officer Daniel O’Day wrote in an open letter released Saturday night. He added the 1.5 million doses will be donated for “broader distribution” following any potential future regulatory approvals.

ADVERTISEMENT


In coming months, the company expects to increase supplies as raw materials become available and, as a result, has set an “ambitious goal” of producing more than 500,000 treatment courses by October and more than 1 million by the end of this year. Toward that end, Gilead said it is building a “geographically diverse” group of suppliers to expand global capacity for raw materials and production.

Related: As the coronavirus spreads, a drug that once raised the world’s hopes is given a second shot
There is some evidence remdesivir, which previously failed to show benefit in Ebola virus patients, benefits Covid-19 patients, and the company has been working with researchers and several governments to get several clinical trials running. Results are expected this month.

Their gesture is an investment.  If they are the first ones in with a successful treatment drug, there will be plenty of money to be made.

I'm sure drug companies want to find a treatment drug that is still under patent protection, not something cheap, generic, and affordable like Hydroxychloroquine.

Heard about this one the other day. If you've treated livestock, dogs for heartworm or had head lice (crabs?) you may be familiar with it. I have a bottle of ivermectin in the medicine cabinet. Used to be expensive but since the patent is off it's dirt cheap. We use it for both internals & externals in the sheep once they're shorn. Used sub Q, injectible stings, makes 'em hop around but it's effective.

We started using in for heartworms with our dogs.  It is a fraction of the cost of Frontline.  I think we paid $30 for a bottle and it will last 3 years or more to treat our dogs every month.  Doesn't take much.  About .1 or .2 cc's per dog per month orally. Learned about it in the great dog Vet book:  "How to afford Vet care without mortgaging the kids."  Dr. Busby in Bemidji.  The book is on Amazon.  He pissed off a lot of vets cuz he tells it like it is so people can save money on vetcare.  Fun book to read too.

Off the COVID-19 topic but what are you using for fleas & ticks on the dogs Barry? The pour on permethrin we buy for livestock? A gallon costs about $20 - $30 & would last forever when used on a dog or two. It should work for that but just curious. I know too with herding dogs we have to be somewhat careful with ivermectin as it'll kill some within certain breeds if they're not tested first.

First you give your dogs 1cc to see if they react.  Work up to 5 ccs and if they don't react by then you are good.  Can't do it with collies and dogs like that.  We now buy Bravecto.  A flavored tablet.  Haven't had a tick or flea on our dogs in the two years we have used it.  Fantastic stuff.  Ticks don't even like being on them.  And we are outside a lot.  One tablet every 3 months.  We do a half tab after the first three months to get them for another month and a half.  That way we can buy 3 tablets total and they are covered for the summer.  About $50 a tablet.  Have to get it from a Vet.  Our Vet mails it to me.

 :scratch: :scratch: i'm not sure what to think of wearing gloves and a mask. I don't have any masks, and all my gloves I gave away to the nursing home.

lately on the news there has been a lot said about the glove issue, if you don't take them off properly, it serves no purpose of wearing them, and even then they say you need to wash your hands because the gloves maybe infected.

I haven't really had to go anyplace yet to decide????????

Whether you believe in "Global Warming" or not, the Pope clearly has an agenda in this regard because ecological changes - regardless of their cause - affect those in poverty hardest.

I find I need to read quotes from this Pope carefully, because the media often times draws the wrong inferences.

"We did not respond to the partial catastrophes. Who now speaks of the fires in Australia, or remembers that 18 months ago a boat could cross the North Pole because the glaciers had all melted? Who speaks now of the floods?" the Pope said.  "I don't know if these are the revenge of nature, but they are certainly nature's responses," he added.

When he spoke of "Nature's Responses" to the ecological crisis, he was talking about floods and fires and such, not the virus.  His point relates to how the global community responds to these local, "partial" catastrophes.  Now we are faced with global catastrophe and asks what we are doing to help the poor.

His example sited in the CNN article I read asked why are homeless sheltered in Las Vegas parking lots when the hotels are empty?  There may be a good reason for not doing so, but this Pope is continually calling us to pay attention to the needs of the poor.

I understand your point Steve-o regarding the homeless. I take issue with religion interfering with politics. I am a firm believer in separation of church and state. and in my opinion the catholic church is the worse. I was brought up catholic but I lost all faith in them years ago.

regarding the hotels in vegas…………..they were closed for a reason. I really don't see the catholic church hitting it out of the ballpark building, financing or stepping up for the homeless.

just my opinion.

The virus is just as much part of nature as fire and floods and hurricanes and earthquakes.    Talking about "nature's response" is getting sort of close to anthropomorphizing it in replacement for God, which is a strange way for a pope to talk.   

For that matter, mankind and the poor and homeless are also part of nature.     

As for homeless in Hotels, California is starting to do that although it is quite expensive and not popular with the neighbors.   Somewhere north of $100 per day per room.   And they still have to eat, buy booze, buy drugs,  so they won't exactly be on lockdown.   
(one hotel backed out after local protests)

Sort of a problem...   take a family of 4 living in a normal? house, say one like yours Reb.   One of the adults or even a high school kid gets sick.   Not really any way to isolate them in the house.    I bet all those hotels around town are pretty much empty.   Might not be such a dumb idea for the sick person to go stay in a room in a hotel until they are recovered or have to go to hospital.

I read that when using the hand sanitizer that you need to let it dry and not wipe it off.  As in how I kind of wipe it on my my pants legs.  I also read as RH said that just washing with soap and water is great which reminds me of the thing on the wall at the Dr's office.  FROG  Friction Rubs Out Germs.   Now seriously.  Friction is a big part of warshing hands.

BTT50's was still on as of today's check on their website but won't be surprised if they punt on that one too. 12,000 cars June 19 - 21 and hopefully more than that number of sweaty people crammed into the State Fairgrounds. What could possibly go wrong?  :scratch: They did cash my check however. Haven't seen the packet in the mail that'll get me in the gate yet.  Who knows?

So how long can we continue to put everything on hold? The numbers right now stand at 50 deaths in MN. The U of M/MDH model predicts 6000 - 20000 for the 12 - 16 month period. To reach that people will have to start dropping like flies. The U of Washington model predicts 456 thru August. Quite a discrepency.

Partisan tempers flare over Minnesota’s COVID-19 response[/b]





MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Partisan tempers flared over Minnesota’s response to the COVID-19 outbreak Thursday as Republicans expressed frustration with Democratic Gov. Tim Walz for extending his stay-at-home order through May 4 and questioned the modeling behind his decision.

GOP Senate Majority Leader Paul Gazelka expressed dismay after Walz issued an extension that allowed certain categories of employees to return to work but maintained closures of bars, restaurants and other businesses deemed non-essential. About 80% of Minnesota employees are exempt.

“I do not approve of the Governor’s unilateral decision to continue the order to shelter at home until May 4th. We have to get on with our lives,” tweeted Gazelka, the state’s top elected Republican.

In a separate tweet, Gazelka disputed the updated modeling data that Walz used Wednesday as justification for extending his order, suggesting that it’s unduly pessimistic.

“Gov Walz expecting up to 5,000 people in ICU this June,” he tweeted. “New York State has less than 5,000 people in the ICU TODAY! NY has 19.5 million people to our 5.6 million. We have around 3000 beds available. We are ready for the surge now. Why shut MN business down for a NY sized surge?”

Walz said on his daily conference call with reporters that he’s listening to top experts and using the latest available data.

“I want people back to work as badly as anybody does,” Walz said, citing advice from the Mayo Clinic, the Centers for Disease Control, other health organizations and the example of 42 other states with similar restrictions. “I hope that I am as wrong as I can be on the need for those beds, but all of the data shows me that I cannot risk that at this time.”

The Minnesota Department of Health reported 11 new deaths from COVID-19 on Thursday, the state’s largest one-day increase since the pandemic began, raising the state’s total to 50. The department also reported 88 new confirmed cases Thursday for a total of 1,242.

The department has conducted the modeling with experts at the University of Minnesota. Amid increasing pressure, the department has scheduled a presentation on modeling for reporters Friday.

Walz said the various models the state considers, including a more optimistic model from the University of Washington increasingly cited by Republicans, are not meant to predict deaths, but trends and loads on the health care system.

The top Republican in the Minnesota House, Minority Leader Kurt Daudt, urged “maximum transparency” and called for the full release of all the modeling data and assumptions driving the Walz administration’s decisions.

“Every day legislators are fielding dozens of calls from families and business owners whose lives have been turned upside-down as a result of decisions based on modeling data that has not yet been released to the public,” Daudt said in a statement. “It would be helpful for Minnesotans to see for themselves the data informing the Governor’s executive orders — not just a few summary slides.”

Walz said Republicans have the right to question his decisions but disputed that he’s made them unilaterally.

“I don’t think deliberating in a crisis by tweet is the way to go.” he said.

We were just told the same thing last Wednesday at work also that if we travel we need to self quarantine for 14 days.
what I had a problem with was the personal travel, if you traveled for the employer it was ok. WTF.

The 4" - 8" of snow forecast for Easter here might further enhance social distancing. Looks like a cold, do nothing week for farmers too. Going to be a lot of cranky people to stay away from. Can't go to the bar. Hafta drink at home.  :rotflmao:

We get our temp checked at work now and are asked about travel.
On the social side, Easter will be a hard time to stay apart.
the shop we have in st cloud is going to start taking temps as soon as they are set up for it. I see next week. If they refuse they get sent home and are not eligible for unemployment

No travel for work for us either. But something I thought of last night is we have contractors in do construction work and I am sure most of them travel back to Grand Forks or where ever they live on the weekends. I don't see them getting quarantined for 14 days. Need to ask the question on Monday.

(so he told someone that knows me) His buddies that work for him, meet him here, and park their cars here all day, then head off with him. They arrived this morning, too. Shop is outside of CAWchester, too, so they're all traveling....whaddya gonna do?  :confused:

Well, a narrow residential street isn't for his employees to be parking on all day, taking up homeowner's guests spots....he's done this ever since he moved in. Neighbors have already had it out with him over this. Business is a garage door fixit place just south of Rochester, no big place. Park there like any other business does.

Well, wouldn't garage doors be considered a part of construction which is essential according to the Gov. That is why we are still working. Windows are part of construction making us essential. And what I read a few weeks ago, Judge Napalatono said all this is actually unconstitutional but because of the fear people let the government walk all over the rights.
Title: Re: corona pandemic~
Post by: Rebel SS on April 10, 2020, 10:10:33 AM
It was deemed non-essential.....not by me. The way I see it, any kinda construction/homeowner type job, whether it be painters, garage door fixers, plumbers, drywallers, electricians, steelworkers, is essential to me. Not much social contact there. Just like my yard guy who is out there right now raking and trimming away. He said they called his biz "Non-essential". But I see the big companies like Tru-green and such are all over the place right now doing yard work. I even think some small restaurants should be allowed to be open. People usually aren't sitting on top of ya in restaurants, so move the tables farther apart. (depending on setup) Non-essential to me are the the bars and breweries that keep popping up all over. Like herds of cattle in 'em. And I agree...when the gubmint starts telling folks what is and isn't an "essential" job, next will be vehicles, guns, etc. In other words, they can kiss my  :moon: But that's another issue.....

Hmmmm....just finished up with my yard buddy, whom I've been friends with since '81.
A straight, by-the-book guy. Doesn't even drink! Anywho, I asked him about the non-essential thing.... Said he called the state hotline, and they told him it applies to Landscapers, and not "yard care" workers. Talked to his district rep, who told him he can run his business.....but he waited anyway. We agreed the whole thing is kinda wishy-washy. The local ones here never stopped anyway.

The COVID-19 had a major impact on both beef and lamb markets. Lamb has tended to be a more seasonal market with Easter/Passover & Christmas leading to an uptick in consumption. The Christmas lamb market was OK but the Easter market disintegrated within a matter of days when things started shutting down. With people out of work or not much $ coming in, they're sure as shootin' not gonna go out and buy lamb at $13/lb. What's in the pipeline is still commanding top dollar but the packers don't want more for a while and they're putting the screws to producers who have fats ready to sell. Can only feed & hang onto it for so long. Guess what? It was tough enough before all this so a lot of producers are gonna throw in the towel. Livestock operators liquidate, supply is lower and the price in the store is only gonna get worse for a while especially once demand picks up again. Bend over and take it.  :surrender:

Yeah, and we got through the civil war, ww1, ww2, Vietnam, Korea, etc.   One could argue that war is a form of mental pandemic.   

I don't think anyone is arguing we couldn't survive this disease even with a million or two geezers and some additional young folks biting the dust, taking a dirt nap, etc.   We got through Polio and Small Pox etc.  We got through the 1918 flu.   Did some of those things cause significant, even lasting, effects?     

Now we are in the midst of yet another pandemic.   Collectively we are taking actions to minimize deaths and general unpleasantness.   Are we doing the right things?   Are we doing enough?  Too much?   We will really only  know after it is over and things have settled down.  And even then opinions may differ based on personal experience.   

At the moment our best  hope is that some treatments are developed that reduce the severity and fatality of the disease.

Grocery shopping etiquette amid coronavirus pandemic

ST. PAUL — With the changing landscape of grocery shopping during the pandemic come new shopping protocols and etiquette.

There are a lot of questions out there about what new practices should be followed when grocery shopping. The Minnesota Grocers Association has addressed that in an advisory issued this week.

Here are key tips to keep in mind when grocery shopping:

Practice social distancing. Allow at least 6 feet between yourself and others as recommended by the CDC.
Streamline your trip by making a list and having only one family member do the shopping.
Be patient. Extra cleaning procedures are being put in place at grocery stores, such as at checkout lanes, and team members are diligently working to make customers’ shopping quick and efficient.
Buy smart and don’t overfill your carts. There is no shortage of product. The nation’s food supply is strong. Grocery stores continue to receive deliveries every day. Remain calm and mindful when shopping. Overbuying can prevent your neighbor from providing for their family.
Sorry, no returns. As an added layer of precaution, Minnesota grocers have adjusted their return policies. This is to ensure the well-being of team members and customers.
If you see some new products in your store, give them a try. As an industry, the grocers association is working closely with the Minnesota Department of Agriculture to bring new opportunities. The association is building partnerships with local farmers and producers who lost their direct markets to schools, restaurants and bars to keep the state’s economy moving forward.

                                                   ###

Also, if you see an aisle Bovine hogging one item, hit their cart and tip it over.

"COVID-19 outbreak in Sioux Falls, S.D. The pork processing plant in South Dakota is closing temporarily after more than 80 employees tested positive for the coronavirus. (Erin Bormett/The Argus Leader via AP)

AP
Updated: April 12, 2020 04:46 PM
Created: April 12, 2020 12:31 PM

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Virginia-based Smithfield Foods announced Sunday that it is closing its pork processing plant in Sioux Falls until further notice after hundreds of employees tested positive for the coronavirus - a step the head of the company warned could hurt the nation's meat supply.

The announcement came a day after South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem and Sioux Falls Mayor Paul TenHaken wrote to Smithfield and urged the company to suspend operations for 14 days so that its workers could self-isolate and the plant could be disinfected.

The plant, which employs about 3,700 people in the state's largest city, has become a hot spot for infections. Health officials said Sunday that 293 of the 730 people who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 in South Dakota work at the plant."

This extension is effective April 13 through May 13 .
  Gov. Walz will seek the Executive Council's approval of the extension Monday afternoon.

“Our actions have saved lives, but the threat of COVID-19 remains,” said Governor Walz. “The next stages of this pandemic are going to challenge us – an extension of Minnesota’s peacetime emergency will allow us to protect Minnesotans’ health and wellbeing and continue to respond effectively to this rapidly-evolving situation.”

More updates:

CDC says Corona can travel up to 13 feet, and they're recommending doubling the 6' distance...I guess that now means two alligators deer... :deer: :deer:

The researchers also found that small concentrations virus-laden aerosols could remain sble riuspended in the air as far as 13 feet away from the infected person, more than twice the recommended 6 feet away. While it isn't known how contagious the virus is through aerosols, possible risk of an airborne infection led to new CDC guidelines for covering your mouth and nose while in public and try to maintain a distance of 12 feet.

Trump claims he has 'total' authority over reopening economy




WASHINGTON (AP) - President Donald Trump and governors from both parties are disputing who has the authority to reopen the economy.

Trump told reporters at a White House briefing Monday that he has “total” authority to decide how and when to roll back tough social distancing guidelines aimed at fighting the new coronavirus. But governors insist that they have the primary constitutional responsibility for ensuring public safety in their states and they will decide when it’s safe to begin a return to normal operations.

Democratic leaders in the Northeast and along the West Coast are forming separate state compacts to coordinate their efforts to scale back stay-at-home orders and reopen businesses.

Well, technically non of them had the authority to do it in the first place if they want to start quoting constitutionality. In my mind all he can do is roll back the national guidelines and the states when roll back theirs when they see fit or finally get enough push back from theirs citizens. Which some of these idiot Governors are going way to far. This is still a free country whether they like it or not.

Walz extends his executive authority; GOP leaders press for transparency in decision-making

ST. PAUL — Gov. Tim Walz on Monday, April 13, issued an order extending his peacetime emergency through May 13 in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

The move pushes out the deadline for the governor's extended executive authority and it ruffled the feathers of Republican lawmakers who said the governor should loop them in to make decisions in responding to the growing number of COVID-19 cases and deaths in Minnesota.

The governor on March 13 declared a state of peacetime emergency due to COVID-19, the illness caused by the coronavirus, and has since issued dozens of orders significantly altering day-to-day life in Minnesota.

In the effort to limit the spread of COVID-19, Walz closed schools, restaurants, bars and areas of public amusement and ordered that Minnesotans stay at home until at least May 4 unless they are performing essential tasks. And on Monday, Walz left the door open to prolonging those deadlines, but he said he hadn't decided yet whether those orders would have to remain intact beyond May 4.

"The virus will lay out the timetable for us," Walz told reporters. "Yes, we all want to open up tomorrow. But people will die if we do that."

Walz said he was working with health officials to determine the safest way to allow idled workers to get back to their jobs without causing a spike in COVID-19 cases that could overwhelm the state's health systems.

Republican legislative leaders on Monday said they hoped to see more businesses open quickly to reduce the burden on the state's economy. And they called for answers about what was guiding Walz's decisions about when to allow Minnesotans to go back to work.

"He clearly understands the emergency caused by COVID-19," Senate Majority Leader Paul Gazelka, R-East Gull Lake, said. "We need to be assured he also understands the economic emergency caused by his response."

House Minority Leader Kurt Daudt, R-Crown, called on Walz to open up discussions about when restrictions would lift, saying "it should not be up to a few commissioners in St. Paul to be the sole decision-makers for thousands of businesses and millions of employees."

The Legislature on Tuesday could end the peacetime emergency with majority support in each legislative chamber. But given the divided nature of the body, it appeared unlikely that could succeed. A small faction of Republican lawmakers known as the New House Republican Caucus put forth a separate resolution to end the peacetime emergency. That resolution would require two-thirds support in each chamber.

Discussions about when to reopen businesses and begin allowing more Minnesotans to go back to work are ongoing, Walz and economic development officials said. And efforts to slowly reopen areas of the economy could be constrained given a lack of supplies to test workers for the illness and for antibodies that could indicate whether someone has already been sick.

Department of Employment and Economic Development Commissioner Steve Grove on Monday said state officials were having consistent contact with regional chambers of commerce around the state and had been taking suggestions from Minnesotans about ways to get people back to work safely.

The slowed economy also hit the state's coffers, state budget officials said, and general fund receipts in February and March came in 3.8% lower than what they'd expected before the pandemic took hold. Walz and his commissioners would take a 10% salary decrease and the state would freeze hiring for nonessential workers, Minnesota Management and Budget Commissioner Myron Frans said.

We best pay close attention to how our civil liberties are being infringed upon during all this - because it will be all the more easy for government to impose more of them the next time something else happens.

No, I don't think we are heading towards what happened in Nazi Germany.  What happens to us will be different and unique to our times.  But it IS happening.  The government is exerting more control over our lives.  Media outlets determine which viewpoints get expressed or suppressed and/or censored.  And medical research - both private sector and publicly funded universities - is controlled by drug company funding, which has no interest in finding the best solutions to medical problems - only those solutions that will make them a profit.

When was the last time you heard Fouchi remind us that keeping up with vitamins A, C, and D is integral to keeping your body's own immune system boosted during this pandemic time?   :confused:  Nope.  (Or maybe I missed it.)
 But he sees a vaccine as the best, most desirable solution. 

Yes, I know Corona-19 isn't SARS, but I don't recall ever getting vaccinated against SARS.  We all need more information, but I just wish I had more confidence that the information we are getting is objective.

Sure, great if ya have a lot of cash, but even worse, so far we know the virus can live on paper/cardboard for 3 hours or more. Door to door virus delivery. UPS, Fed-ex...AHCHOO...there goes that pkg. No masks available anywhere here, air contact of virus. 28,000 working people in the glitterdome crammed into a downtown area. Virus in elevators..railings...hours of living in warm air. Stays on clothing. Clothing to items to doors to counters transmission.....and on and on.  We did better on the measles person quarantine in the 60's. That's my take on it.

Anyone watching the protests in Michigan.  Peolple are mad at how restrictive the governor is being.  Can buy booze but not paint????  Not Paint if you want to keep your house up.  Cant buy seeds or dirt for your garden???  Cant use motors in any waters??  Worse than any communist nation it's getting there.  The people in  Michigan are told what you can buy and what you can't.  What the hell does it matter what you buy.  None of her buisness.  They also want to get back to work.  Unreal.  This is not what this country stands for.  good luck.

That's pure bullsh**!! What you BUY has nothing to do with it! At most, they can insist you not "congregate", IMO, they CANNOT tell you what you can and can't buy. Hope they don't try that sh** here. We all know how that'll work with me! Maybe folks need to speak up more.....it's OUR country!

I remember that Lee.  It sure was listened to wasn't it.  Typical of stuffed shirts in politics.  They are all reactive instead of being proactive.   Back to the tyrant governor in Michigan.  I was listening to some of the people at the protest.  One said he can't go over his property line.  Have to stay on his own property even though the neighbor said come on over but stay 6 feet away.  Another said how insane is it that I can't buy grass seeds or fertilizer for the lawn.  They have plenty of paint, grass seeds, and fertilizer but the tyrant said you can't buy it.  A small buisness owner said he is not allowed to buy a American flag.  What the hell is wrong with this picture.  Regardless of party, left right in the middle or don't even care about politics,  this has to get you outraged big time.  I think this is just the start.  I think these protests are just the beginning of government overeach that has gone extreem.  I can see the 6 foot thing and the masks and gloves but this is governing as a dictator and it has to stop now.  good luck.

Well duh.....WTH did you expect? Afternoon dainties and tea?! :bonk:


ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) - With many staying home and having more free time, alcohol sales are up across the country according to Nielsen market research data. People at home have seen their drinking patterns change.

However, the World Health Organization says drinking is labeled as a very 'unhelpful' coping method.

"It's amazing that something that seems so tame, innocent and in control can become out of control the next moment," said Tom Truszinski, director at Minnesota Adult and Teen Challenge.

Some people have no issues with alcohol, but for many it can lead to addiction. Excessive alcohol in your system can also make you more susceptible to viral infections.

"Usually what happens in this time is people self-medicate. They are looking for a way to escape their concerns and struggles," Truszinski said. "Being honest with yourself and another person that can hold you accountable is a huge first step."

Since the cornonavirus spread started, Minnesota Adult and Teen Challenge have received more calls than ever about their alcohol rehab programs.

However… he warns that help is only available to those who want it…

"All my other routes of finding relief and freedom haven't worked so I'm ready to try someone else's method," said Truszinski, who has battled alcohol addiction himself. "That's when we find breakthroughs, freedom, trueness of life and transformation."

Before counselors can help find the root of the drinking problem, they say detoxing in the first step.

Alcohol is not always related to mental health issues, but it can be a factor.

"But there is a strong correlation because once again, people are trying to self-medicate a hurt or a pain," said the director. "What is that hurt, pain or challenge that you're trying to escape from?"

And even if you do find an escape...

"You're never going to find true satisfaction and happiness in life in a bottle," said Truszinski. "Drinking isn't going to solve a problem. It's only going to make the problems even greater."

He says that if you are concerned about someone's drinking and they do not want to get help, that you should set boundaries between yourself and this person in order to not allow them to influence or harm you.

'I have to walk my teddy bear': Italians come up with unlikely excuses to defy lockdown


An empathic woman out of her house to comfort her friend whose chicken had died. A grief-struck man visiting his grandma at the cemetery while the woman is well and alive at home. A woman walking her tortoise in the park. 

In Italy, where the government has enforced some of the most strict lockdown restrictions in the world to curb the spread of the coronavirus, people have come up with some unlikely excuses to get out of the house.

From the man walking his son’s stuffed animal to the couple candidly admitting that their love couldn’t keep them apart, the stories caught the attention of a Rome-based journalist, Salvatore Dama, who started a daily top-ten list of the most tragicomic reasons Italians found to defy the lockdown.

His daily Facebook lists, based on local news reports, became so popular that he decided to turn them into an e-book, with proceeds going towards a hospital in Bergamo, one of the hardest-hit cities in Italy.

Tyson Foods says 2 dead after virus outbreak at Iowa plant

April 15, 2020


DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- Two employees have died following a coronavirus outbreak that has sickened scores of Tyson Foods workers at a large pork plant in southeastern Iowa.

The deaths of the workers at Tyson plant in Columbus Junction are the first known to be linked to an outbreak at a meatpacking plant in Iowa.

The company said that it was "deeply saddened by the loss of two team members" and that their families were in its thoughts and prayers.

The plant has been idled since April 6, when Tyson announced that more than two dozen workers were infected.

The company said Monday that it would continue the plant's suspension this week after more workers tested positive. No date to re-open has been mentioned at this time.

Evers extends Wisconsin stay-at-home order until May 26


April 16, 2020

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Gov. Tony Evers has extended Wisconsin's stay-at-home order for another month.

The extension issued Thursday keeps nonessential businesses closed until May 26 to slow the spread of the coronavirus.

Schools will remain closed for the remainder of the academic year. News of the extension comes amid growing criticism from conservatives who are pushing Evers, and governors in other states, to loosen restrictions.

Evers did make some adjustments, including allowing golf courses to reopen. He's also allowing nonessential businesses to make deliveries and have curbside pickup available.

That includes arts and crafts stores making material available to produce face masks and other personal protective equipment.

Separately, the idea that the virus emerged at an animal market in Wuhan continues to be debated by experts. Dr. Ronald Waldman, a former official at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and a public health expert at George Washington University, said the theory has fallen out of favor in some quarters, in part because one of the early infected persons had no connection to the market.

Two laboratories in Wuhan have been conducting research on coronaviruses found in bats.

In November 2017, the research team at the Wuhan Institute of Virology published a a paper identifying the bat population that may have harbored the virus that caused the 2015 SARS epidemic.

U.S. officials have said repeatedly that China has not been transparent in its handling of the virus. The Chinese government has refused to turn over early samples to American researchers, and China has detained people who tried to call attention to the emerging pandemic. Those people can no longer be found.

Here ya go! End of discussion!



Gov. Walz announces extension of outdoor recreation


Created: April 17, 2020 11:07 AM

(ABC 6 News) - Gov. Tim Walz issued  Executive Order 20-38 Friday, which expands allowable outdoor recreational activities that include hiking on trails, golfing, fishing, hunting and more.

These guidelines include maintaining 6-foot social distancing, avoiding crowded areas, and staying close to home.
 
“It’s important for us to stay active and enjoy the outdoors while preventing the spread of COVID-19,” said Governor Walz. “This measure will allow Minnesotans to take advantage of more opportunities to get outside, while still doing their part to keep their neighbors healthy.”
 
Under Executive Order 20-38, facilities that may reopen or remain open include:
Bait shops for live bait
Outdoor shooting ranges and game farms
Public and private parks and trails
Golf courses and driving ranges
Boating and off-highway vehicle services, including:
Marina services
Dock installation and other lake services
Boat and off-highway vehicle sales and repair, by appointment only
 

Campgrounds and dispersed camping, outdoor recreational equipment retail stores, recreational equipment rental, charter boats, launches, and guided fishing remain closed.
 
Minnesotans should continue to take part in outdoor activities close to their primary residence. Staying home helps protect Minnesotans from spreading COVID-19 and limits pressure on rural medical facilities and essential supplies.
 
These new provisions will go into effect on Saturday, April 18 at 5:00 a.m., and will have the full force and effect of law upon approval by the executive council.

thanks Reb...…..good info. but some ambigious interpretation could be had here??

 all campgrounds closed or just state and or county??? are private campgrounds included.

recreational rentals?? does that mean places like Geyer rental is I need a garden tiller???

Ruby growled and barked when I told her it was ten minutes to Timmy Time. Timmy tends to get flustered and talks in circles when Tom Hauser grills him. I haven't watched a lot of television news for years. I'm usually in the barn or heading that way. Hauser's fast become my favorite journalist as I haven't figured out which side of this and any other issues he's on, live or on his Twitter feed which I follow. That means he's doing his job as a journalist.  :happy1:

Coronavirus 'could be spreading across the globe through farts' claim doctors
Doctors have made the foul discovery that farting could spread the Covid-19 disease – unless infected people wear pants which can protect this from happening

o
The deadly coronavirus bug could be spreading across the globe through farts, according to doctors.

Tests carried out earlier this year have shown that the virus was present in the faeces of more than half of patients with Covid-19.

And doctors have previously warned farts contain tiny poo particles that can spread bacteria.

They said more research needed to be done to rule out passing the disease on to people through omitting bodily gasses.

TV doctor Xander Van Tulleken, who presented CBBC series Operation Ouch as well as appearing on a string of documentaries, raised the issue on social media.


Doctors say, however, the infected person would have to not be wearing pants for starters (Image: Getty Images)

Vet urgently warns 'don't let anyone pat your dog' amid coronavirus link to pets

Researchers spot worrying new coronavirus symptoms emerging among Covid-19 patients
He highlighted work by Australian doctor Andy Tagg which he called “an enjoyable thread about whether farting can cause coronavirus”.

In his findings Dr Tagg cited tests carried out earlier this year which showed 55% of patients with SARS-CoV-2 had it present in their poo.

He said: “Well, SARS-CoV-2 can be detected in faeces and has been detected in an asymptomatic individual up to 17 days post-exposure.”

The doctor added that previous tests have shown farts have the power to spray talcolm powder long distances.

In 2001 Australian doctor Karl Kruszelnicki and microbiologist Luke Tennent carried out an experiment to see if farts could spread disease.

Dr Tennent asked a colleague to pass wind directly into two Petri dishes from a distance of five centimeters - first while wearing pants, and then without.

He found that the first Petri dish stayed clean, while the second one sprouted bacteria overnight, but added the bacteria found in the test was not harmful.

Earlier this year China’s Center for Disease Control and Prevention announced that pants should be an effective barrier against farts that might carry the novel coronavirus.

Just wondering....since most of us aren't  going to the grocery store as often as we would have, and with a shortage of some things, has this changed yer eating habits at all?
Are you eating different things, trying different methods, etc?
I guess I'm eating more canned things, which I usually don't do....canned fruit, different varieties of beans, (limas, pintos) more rice than I normally would....that's about the only difference for me, since I was really stocked up when this thing hit.

nope. Actually eating more fresh fruit. We do however try to limit the trips to the store. I always try to blanch and freeze most my garden stuff. I not a big fan of canned veggies if I can avoid it. Meat it depends on what we have a hankering for.
Title: Re: corona pandemic~
Post by: Dotch on April 18, 2020, 09:46:03 PM
Before all this stuff went down I'd made a request for more fresh fruits in particular. I can't say we're eating much differently otherwise but probably on a more regular basis with both of us home. We still rely on a large evening meal being cooked then living off the leftovers for several meals afterwards while filling in with lighter meals in between. Less eating on the fly and more organized meals overall. The result has been more dirty dishes. The dishwasher needs to be run a couple more times per week.  :huh:

We have salads for our lunches everyday at work so we have to go grocery shopping every week. We went once a week before all this started and Wego once a week now. To be honest nothing has changed for us at all. Other than not be able to get the grandkids next weekend, we are doing what we would normally do.
Title: Re: corona pandemic~
Post by: LPS on April 19, 2020, 08:24:48 AM
We were eating more salads and fresh fruit when this all started.  I used to go to the grocery store 3 - 4 times a week.  Got to say hi to everyone and pick up fresh fruit and salad stuff.  Now we go once every 2 weeks so not as much fresh fruit and fresh salad stuff.  We too are having more canned veggies but have lots of frozen veggies now.  We have stocked up good on meat so good there.  I have put on 3 or 4 lbs too.  I need to get moving more to wear it off.  I have been sitting on my azz more since this started. 

SO you are saying that I shouldn't be farting in the store so people will get out of my way anymore?

I have always ate fruits and veggies. its a staple in my lunch bucket. for some reason we are on a fresh pineapple, apple and orange kick lately. when there are grapes in the house, it may make it 3 days.

in this house we way prefer frozen veggies over canned...…...they seem to taste a lot more like right out of the garden. when I cook them I add very little water and more butter. :happy1: :happy1:

Only canned veggies I eat are corn, yams, and beans. Rest is all frozen. Been doing lots of frozen veggies lately...I've even bought the mixed veggies with those....those.....green things in 'em. Experimenting. Mixing frozen young peas with frozen onion bits (couldn't find pearl onions), a dollop of butter, and seasoned salt to make a "sauce" on 'em. Frozen carrots with brown sugar.....melted cheddar on broccoli... and brussel sprouts in butter. Been eating a lot more salads, mater's, peppers, and apples, nanners, peaches......

So, I stopped at Sly-Vee, home of the ripoff, 'cuz they are real close and I just wanted some stuff to make coleslaw and to grab some tater salad. Boy, that place is so spendy it's crazy!  :doah:  Anywho, noticed a couple people kinda glared at me as I passed them, wondered what that was all about. Then the overhead speaker goes off, "reminding all of our shoppers to follow the one-way arrows on the floor, (and the corner ones) to prevent passing people in the opposite direction, keeping us all safe"....what they hey??!?!?!? Was then I noticed arrows drawn on floor so you can only go ONE WAY down an aisle, and have to turn in "proper direction" to get to another aisle....and of course, I was going the wrong way.  That's going just a BIT TOO far IMO.  Almost wished I woulda worn my bandanna mask (had regular one on) and I woulda pulled my coat back exposing the .40 cal so someone could see
the bandanna mask and gun..."ROBBER! HE's GOT A GUN!"   :moon:   ;)

Read a story about a small town grocery guy.   His store had like an odd number of aisles or something so if he made them one way you came in the front door, went through the aisles (like the commisary when I was at fort ord)  and ended up in the back of the store in frozen foods.... :crazy:

But yeah when I was at fort ord, the commissary was the grocery store on post run by the government.   Had great prices.   Aisles were all one way and you got one  pass through.   Line out the door.

Everyone knows that when everyone walks in the same direction and someone coughs, the virus falls straight to the floor so the cleaning crew can sanitize it.
 You can't pick up the virus by walking through someone's backwash.   :rotflmao:

When are we going to figure out that if you are anywhere near someone who has the virus, and they aren't wearing a mask, and they haven't washed their hands since the last time the coughed in their hands or licked their fingers, you've got a high probability of getting it.  One way isles aren't going to save you.   :bonk:

one of the people we knew from out at the campground was a huge pig farmer. we was down by Marshall, over near Balaton. wonder how this affects him. if I remember right he supplied feeder hogs to farmers????

Lots of corn down there so they have the best tasting beef and pork.  In the 70's I would buy a hog from my buddy now and then for around 29 cents a lb live weight.  Rock County.  They just got their first 3 covid cases in the last week or so.  Exactly halfway between Worthington and Sioux Falls.  About 25 miles each way.  That is where my Mom and Dad live in their new Senior Apt place.  They have been quarantined for a few weeks now.  Their food is even delivered to their apt.  Noone can even mingle inside the buildings.  I worry more now with the outbreaks in each direction.

Aisles were full of TP and paper towels. Picked up some Honeycrisp apples and nanners, too. Plenty of stuff everywhere.....odd, no napkins or paper plates...!  Canned goods still not up to par.

Mike,
I was listing to the radio and they said (I think) that this plant processes 20,000 hogs a day? Could that be accurate?
Title: Re: corona pandemic~
Post by: LPS on April 20, 2020, 04:53:16 PM
I know you asked Mike but that is accurate Coop.  Even though I think it said that the plant produces 5% of the pork in the US.  Same with the Smithfield plant in Sioux Falls.  Mike may have more details.

Unreal on the barrel of oil price RH.  That must be a first. 

We in Lake of the Woods still don't have a case neither RH.  Closing these accesses really helped this vulnerable area.  Once fishing season opens there will be people coming up and bringing it here I am afraid.  I am not worried about them cuz they will go home before they are real sick.  If people up here get infected we are going to have to go somewhere else for treatment I think. Then this area will be a hot spot and the people coming up will get affected too and will bring it to where they live. I feel for the resorts too.  Just a tough deal.

I talked to one of our councilmen last night for awhile.  It seems Koochiching County is opening up their accesses on the river.  Wheelers Point is already open here.  SO the hordes of people will be coming with the virus in 2 weeks.  I wish the Governor would hold off on the opener for 30 days so we can get better prepared all over the state for the influx of covid in all of the resort areas.  I know dollars and cents speak louder than lives at times.  So sad.  Bemidji is the designated Covid hospital for this area.  Hospitals like Baudette, Roseau will be non-covid hospitals.  SO people with non-covid issues will be brought up here and the covid cases will be brought to Bemidji if there is space for them.  There are no ventilators here.  The ice rinks here will be the designated covid holding areas here.  There is spaces for dead people to be stored also.  I wonder if the ice making equipment will be used to preserve bodies in the cold there?  I guess Grand Forks ambulances are already overwhelmed so a Baudette Ambulance even had to go there and pick up someone and bring them to Mayo.  Don't know if it was a covid patient but I don't think so.  Obviously common sense is not going to help us anymore cuz every fisherman that comes up here will show us they have none!  Some people just don't care about others as long as they can do what they want to do.  Again so sad!    SO now Stay in Place will be extremely important now with the influx of infection we will now encounter.  We will stock up on food and essentials even more seriously now.  Things will get real serious now!  I hope they really cherish the money they will make due to these decisions!

Post by: glenn57 on April 22, 2020, 09:09:24 AM
the longer this goes, the more ya hear and read the more I get confused. only thing I get out of it is we were never prepared for something of this level, partially because every time ya turn around you keep hearing about cutting budgets yet the cost of things nor does the taxes they take go down. and the fact that the government is so corrupt and ya cant tell if there lying or hiding the truth sucks.

I read something somewhere where it showed a chart of every 100 years something like this springs up. where does this end...…..there is a lot of businesses and lives affected by this. how does this rate with anything else that's come along?? HIV, flu, H1N1, why this and shut everything down.

when this came about the stay in place was to buy time for the hospitals, get testing equipment, how friggin long can that take. its not going away...…………………….

I get more confused every day>>>>>>>>>

Yes, that is the problem with government and suspension of civil liberties.

Once you start exerting control, it is hard to let go of it. 

Yes, the plan was to flatten the curve, build the capacity to treat, and deal with it as it comes.  Problem is no one wants to be responsible for opening the flood gates.

I agree with Glenn and Steve-o. Kind of a bit of doom and gloom there Barry. One thing with the open water fishing we don't get nearly as many people coming up here like we do in the winter with the wheel houses. I think they have had there time to get things ready and flatten the curve. Time for life to move along again. Are there risks? Of course there are risks. There are risks just being alive and going about normal life.
Title: Re: corona pandemic~
Post by: Dotch on April 22, 2020, 10:11:47 AM
'zactly JB. Getting out of bed exposes you to risk. I agree with roony that the issue may come back to haunt in the later fall when more people are back inside more. I think it'll be manageable though if we use our heads a little. Testing will be critical and Iowa has already launched their program in an organized fashion. The data are indicating it's been the biggest problem in population centers as well as crowded workplaces, large gatherings and care center environments. The high numbers are situational. We're not seeing it just randomly explode out of thin air and the numbers bear that out. Waseca Co. has had just 3 cases total and Steele has been stuck on 9 cases for several weeks. If we focus our efforts rather than repeat the one size fits all approach it should be doable. I can see a lot of the winter meetings I've attended over the years could easily be done via online video hookup. I've always wondered why they didn't do that long ago. I've been coughed on enough at those damn things. That way I could even have a G&T while I was at it!  :happy1:   
Title: Re: corona pandemic~
Post by: roony on April 22, 2020, 11:05:28 AM
There are so many different ways to look at this pandemic. On a personal level, the biggest hardships for me have been not being able to visit my mom at the care center (not even through the window any more as of  last Friday), and not being able to see my kids and grandkids. We make these sacrifices to save people's lives, mostly the elderly.I koow these seniors have made great sacrifices in their lives for our benefit and most of them would do anything for us, so I bare it for their sake.
I am no expert on pandemics and hate being told what to do more than most but in this case I tend to listen to those who know more than I. Hopefully when the next big wave comes we will be more prepared.
The sad truth is that we will be paying for this pandemic for years. Our way of life has changed, all that money the federal, state, and local governments are handing out will have to be paid back. I think this will be the end of a lot of small businesses and family farms.
We will survive though and maybe we will learn what things are most important.

Problem is... everyone keeps ignoring the elephant in the room.

No one has told me anything to make me believe that we ALL aren't going to get this at some point.

Development, testing, and production of an effective vaccine is how many months away?  12 to 18 minimum!

This spreads like wildfire.  Stay at home is not sustainable.  Business closed is not sustainable.  Even social distancing is not sustainable in the economy if gatherings are restricted to fewer than 10 people:  shopping malls, sporting events, summer festivals, churches!

I am usually an optimistic and happy person but this is finally getting me down and worried.  When I have talked to my Councilman and a local First Responder they both said we are all going to have to Fight the Tiger eventually. BUT I think the longer we can escape or hide from it the better the treatments and vaccinations will be.  Everyday they are coming up with new stuff to help in some way it seems.  I am in pretty good shape but did have a minor heart thing about 18 years ago and I will be 66 in July.  Hard to believe.  Sometimes I still think I am 40 until I look in the mirror when I brush my teeth. LLL I am hanging in there.  Also even though I like being home I haven't had much socializing lately and that may be taking a toll too.  I am a hand shaker and a hugger and I think those days may be over forever.  I guess just have to adapt to the new normal.  Living here which I love has kept us away from this but now when it gets here and invades our world being here may be a big liability.  That is why this fishing thing bothers me.  That is what is going to expose my peaceful existence to something else.  It was going to get here eventually but why invite it in droves?  Only my opinion and this is what I am feeling now.

I had to go to a shop today to drop off relevant info regarding this COVID thing...…..I got tested via taking my temp..... they said I was still alive. :happy1: :happy1: I also filed out a form that asked if I had been out of the country or visited any of the hotspots. I also signed the document saying if I came down with the symptoms within the next 14 days I would notify the employer.

I reckon most of us are in the same boat.

The ONE thing that extending stay-at-home does is provide more time to develop effective treatment for the worst cases.

I'm 71 and I'm as carefull as can be.  But I will go fishing.  This thing will not stop me.  I hope  people will get out more.  Walk in the park, walk in the woods,  Hike the trails, just get out.  You are no threat to anyone unless you get irresponsible.  Keep your distance from others.  Wait till someone gets their boat out and then your next.  Take wipes along.  Fill the tank and wipe your hands afterwords.  Your protected and so is the next person to use the same pump.  I even wipe the pump before I fill.  No worker in our store has gotten this virus.  They wear plastic gloves and some wear masks.  This is why I think some workers can go back to work in a gradual safe way.  Have workers tested daily and have them wear masks when needed.  This country has to get back to work or this country will be in a depression.  Then what??  There are states that have very little problem with this.  No reason they have to have any shutdown.  People in those states are doing the same thing all the states are doing by using common sense.  I hear the bars and resturants are opening up again May 4th.  Lake and Cook country do not have any cases of this that I know about.  Look how many needed workers are working.  They are carefull and still getting paychecks.  Hospitals are empty and elective surgeries are not taking place.  Dental offices are closed.  Why?  Have the patients temps taken when they come in and have the dentist wear a mask and protect himself and the staff and only allow so many patients in the place so they can wait safely.  Why can't this be done??  So this thing is scary for sure, but Where I go fishing I don't have to be afraid of jamed boat landings.  My goal is not to harm anyone and the other goal is to still have a life.  good luck.

As of today there are about 1400 people who have tested positive and not yet recovered to where they aren't contagious.   

About 250 of those are hospitalized.    of all the cases, 31% are over 65. 

So, maybe a thousand people in the whole state are currently infected.   Out of 5.3 million.   So, assuming randomness and all that, the chance of an infected dude not showing up  among a couple hundred guys at a boat launch is (1-1000/5.3million)**200.  or 96% if I did the math right. 

So, don't be freaking out.   Oh and if you are a heathy person under 65 the chances of dying from this, if you catch it, is like 1 out of 200 or maybe a lot less.   Now it looks like, in my opinion, that most people will get it sooner or later.    So, you pays your money and you takes your chances...

I try not to follow anyone walking, or criss-cross paths but ya lps its a good thing to over think this virus,  just keep from touching anything you can. I carry gloves in the truck for any purpose,  use my boot to open doors going out you name it.

I agree del. Of course out here in the wide open spaces, it's a different planet. The sky is not falling. It's pitter patter, let's get at 'er time. Does that mean be reckless and stupid? Nope. I'm not ridin' around in tractor cabs visiting with farmers like I normally do this time of year. We're still checking corn planting depth and scouting alfalfa for winter survival like we always have but we're relaying the info via text & including photos whenever possible. Or phoning them the info. Distancing when we do talk to the farmer in person even if we're out in the open. It's just an automatic.

I see Steele Co. added another case for a total of 10 as of yesterday. Waseca remained at 3. There have been no deaths recorded in either county from COVID-19. Be smart. Be safe.

I sure wouldn't mind getting a half a hog but the wife probably isn't game. She gets migraines from the nitrates in cured meats and isn't real keen on pork in general when I buy it. We've got three lambs in the freezer now, one of which we're not sure will get delivered to the Twin Cities (long story). And that's OK. It'll all get used up. We'll make more.

No surprise here. Putting 12,000 collector and modified automobiles June 19th - 21st into the State Fair grounds and more people than that wasn't in the cards this time around. MSRA will be applying our $35 entry fee for this year's event to next year's. Was hoping that was how they'd handle that. In the meantime, nothing saying we can't get 'em out and drive 'em around or there damn well better not be... :cool:

So when did the narrative change from

"we need to slow the rate of spread to build up the capacity to treat those infected"
(flatten the curve)

to

"we need to keep people from being exposed to save lives"
(if all the stuff we do saves just one life - then everything is worth it).   
:confused:

Still no easy answers, but it seems to me we aren't heading in the right direction yet.

Yes, we already know it is dangerous to be old and in-firmed in a care facility, but what we really need to know is how safe it is for otherwise healthy people to continue working critical jobs in areas where the virus is actively spreading.

If you are not using your limited testing resources to find out betters answers to this critical question, then - in my opinion - you are not using the limited capacity as wisely as you could.

I remember hearing we have a goal of
20K, I don't remember hearing we have that capability now. I wish all health care workers and all first responders could be screened, then workers in the critical supply chain. Like me. It ain't happening anytime soon, if ever. We get temp screened every day before work, workers are sent home if their temp exceeds 100.

They have said all along there only going to test people with symptoms, not everyone will be tested. The temp test is simply to prevent sick people from possible spread.

Back on coronavirus, been eavesdropping on several conversations the wife has been having tonite with individuals from all over the country regarding various major livestock shows, including the MN State Fair. In addition she thinks I'm some kind of IT guy and has me printing off stuff for an online meeting where they'll decide the fate of one of them tomorrow. As far as MN State Fair, personal opinion here, it's looking grim. A lot of the earlier county fairs are already toast. Hope I'm wrong but don't bet on it.

SO something that hasn't been mentioned but will soon be addressed is the Annual Take a Kid Fishing event.  Last year was my 10th year and I got a nice jacket that I am very proud to wear.  It is in the middle of June so I am thinking it will be canceled.  We have a great committee and group of volunteers and have over 100 kids every year.  Lot's of kids have their friends and cousins from elsewhere come to attend it.  It is a blast.  The VFW here and Sportsman's Lodge open up their facilities to make it happen.  My original partner Jerry died a few years ago so now Tim is my partner and we don't worry about getting along with the kids anymore.  We just go with the flow and have a good time.  We usually catch fish too as long as the weather cooperates.  Gonna miss it too!

I don't know if I wrote this before, but I think things are being handled about as well as possible, with any errors on the side of caution, considering we basically knew nothing about this virus, how to treat it, how likely it was to kill people, or how contagious it is.     

At this time, it looks like most people will get it before a vaccine becomes available, and those who die will mostly be us old farts.  So we need to take extra care to try to avoid it until it goes mostly away naturally or a vaccine comes along.   So people mostly will gradually come out of their holes and some will continue to get sick and then recover.   

All the rest of the rest is just noise and fury signifying nothing.    Or it's politics which is the same.

It will be interesting to see the results of the antibody testing here in Minnesota.   And how they are going to handle doing ten times as many tests as they are now.
