    Somewhere on facebook... an Australian woman addressing this isolation realised taking the garbage bin out was her only outing . She made a big deal of it & dressed up formally for such a grand occasion & posted the video on FB Since then many others have joined the party.. some wear tutu's , one wore a shark outfit & thousands are all taking part to enjoy their outing . Darn... I wonder which box I packed my clowns outfit in....

    Coronavirus

    Every day Connecticut releases the day's numbers. It is insightful more women get COVID-19 than men but more men are dying. https://portal.ct.gov/-/media/Coronavirus/CTDPHCOVID19summary4012020.pdf?la=en

    6.5 Mike that photo of your new family is awesome...their mother wouldve been proud. Janice, why were you tested? are you in a covid hot spot? I dont know who gets tested here & not visiting the dog park means I miss out on the community news. My poor dog thought we were going to the park yesterday when I opened its doors looking for my wallet. I found the wallet but his sad face upset me.

    @janice21475 - I hold spiders in the same regard as you do now. I used to be quite fearful of them when I was younger and would kill them outright. I guess wisdom comes with age. They are quite interesting and welcome as long as they are outdoors. I am considered essential because I work in telecom and I support the operations of businesses that are considered essential. 90% of my work has been remote and I have wokred from home for 11 years now. I would only have to go to a site if I have to actually touch the equipment which is unusual since it is fairly reliable. Under COVID, I would not go to a site for anything less than a site that was mostly or hard down. Our state and county have stay at home orders. We are allowed to shop, work, exercise, and go out to care for others that might not be able to care for themselves. My daughter assists the disabled with living skills and is also considered essential. She actually picked up MORE work because some of her co-workers are fearful to come to work. She is concerned about herself but she takes the hours because the clients need structure even more in these times. She would make an ideal first responder if she chose to be one. ~ Mike

    Mike, In my old age I have lost my fear of spiders and that is a good thing. If one starts blocking me from part of my home I relocate it outside but I do not squash them any longer. Outside, is their territory so if they want a certain spot, I am the one who relocates. I wish they would eat ticks. They are very bad this Spring. I have had five of them 'get attached' to me. I will never forget how my late husband suffered with Lyme disease from a tick bite. Thank God, the breed that is in my yard does not carry it. Do you think you could get a picture of the Spider Batch? Or, did they scatter? At you under any restrictions because of the Covid-19 virus? I got tested today. They don't just stick the stick up your nose - they do BOTH SIDES! It is my new 'least favorite' thing. Burns like you were stung inside your head. 14 days before the results come back. Back to self isolation. Stay strong.

    93 today. Matilda, the writing spider, went missing a few days ago but she left behind an egg case which hatched yesterday. I now have about 75 spiderlings on my lanai. I hope one manages to survive and decides to stay after seeing how many insects Matilda caught.

    156 today, very late night yesterday I think. They keep talking on TV about people in asian wet market eating pangolins. Talk about ruining my liking for Chinese food
  16. I just read an article in a magazine, and it said that they have been experimenting with metformin in the lab, by treating certain types of breast cancer cells with it. By using metformin, it lowered the blood sugar, which the cancer cells feed on. Since there was less sugar to feed on, the cancer cells had to work harder to break down the sugar. This extra effort made the cancer cells weaker, which made them more vulnerable to treatment with anticancer drugs. They found that metformin, combined with a cancer treatment, slowed the cancer cells growth rate by 76%. They said that this new approach is particularly promising for treating something called triple-negative breast cancer, which is an aggressive form of the disease that doesn't respond well to existing treatments.

    132 Day 18 The sun was out! Whoa I haven’t seen that since Saturday and it turned out to be a beautiful day. I had to go to the post office and it was interesting, you know that large plastic wraps for wrapping up pallets? Well they had that stretched across the counter with just a small gap at the bottom. I took the long way home and I can say without a doubt my car will not get apple worms! I drove by one of the apple orchards in town and they were spraying the trees and the pesticide cloud drifted over the road (I rolled up the windows and put the AC on recirculate). I drove around the back roads until I used up the battery and the gas engine started (I have a plug-in hybrid car). It was the first time in over a month that the gas engine ran and thought it might be good idea to have it run for a while. It was good to get outside even though it was just inside the car. One of the apple orchards in bloom from a couple of years ago

    Coronavirus

    I ordered a product a few weeks ago, and looking at the tracking information, it's being shipped from China, which I didn't know when I bought it. I guess it will never come, since I would imagine that all mail from China has been stopped. I can't help but wonder....if all shipments from China have been stopped, since tons of things here in the US comes from China, I wonder what that is going to result in?

    That is why that the state of Rhode Island put up roadblocks to stop New Yorkers from going to their vacation homes. Vigilantes were threatening to block the bridges on to Cape Cod.

    Coronavirus

    No one on earth could've, to predate this was going to happen, a mass epidemic with the loss of so many lives throughout the world, my thoughts and prayers go out to every human being, town, city and country, across the globe who are currently suffering, in Hospitals, field Hospitals, makeshift Hospitals, wherever, and the complete inability caused by the process of being lock-down to most countries. To everyone, one can only hope this coronavirus comes to an end soon. The suffering, the fatalities grows every passing day. The UK 25,150 Cases. Deaths 1,789 The Donald predicts over 100,000 people will die because of the coronavirus. Paints a dreadful picture.

    Coronavirus

    Here's a good article to read about the coronavirus, since it's dated today, April 1st. I mention it here because it gives up to date statistics. One that I thought would be the case is..."So far, around 20 per cent of Covid-19 cases have been classed as "severe" and the current death rate varies between 0.7 per cent and 3.4 per cent depending on the location and, crucially, access to good hospital care."

    A 77 (4.28) today. I don't mind the noises that my house makes...unless it's a noise that I've never heard before, in which case I'll try to locate the source. Years ago, before I had my storm windows installed, the windows in my basement family room would make a loud, low pitched groan when the wind was blowing really hard. Even though I knew what it was, when it did that, it startled me since I wasn't expecting it.

    Coronavirus

    A new trend in trying to escape corona is cashed up city dwellers are moving out of the city until it's safe to return. Theyre buying country houses & even taking on long & short term rentals . This not only depletes the available housing for regular residents ,but it puts the rural communities into risks as they carry the virus with them . These small regions medical systems just cant cope with such an influx .

    Me too... the metal slatted blind in the bedroom makes a clunking sound just about every night & Ive no idea why. Maybe its the changing temperature? I mostly keep the radio on all night to cover sounds so the dog sleeps soundly. Diana, those conifers would make a great solid privacy screen. The skunk cabbage sounds great, I'd not heard of them before.
