    Coronavirus

    Today was not a good day on the Coronavirus news... This guy needs to learn social distancing. No matter how fast I ride, he keeps up!

    Lee, that's about the same temperature as I keep my house, in both winter and summer. I usually turn the heat off in the winter in my basement family room. I do that because I want it to be cold in there when I pedal my exercise bike. I turned the heat off once, and I didn't go in there for a few days, and when I did, it felt unusually cold, which I like, but just for the heck of it, I grabbed a thermometer to see what the temperature was. It was 29°F (-1.6C), so I pedaled my exercise bike, and when I was finished, I turned the heat on it's lowest setting....I didn't want my pipes to freeze. I know...I am not normal.😊

    Lee, if you want to buy another kerosene heater, do it! Once you've bought it, buy a few more 5 gallon (19 liter) kerosene jugs, that way, you won't have to go get kerosene as often. I'm curious though....why do you need kerosene heaters? Is it because, where you live, the temperature drops below 100°F (38°C) at night, and you need them to keep warm?

    Hang in there Janice, it could be just flu and if it is not the 80% of people with virus never develop life threatening symptoms. We had exactly the same symptoms in the beginning of March, me and my husband were recovering after 2-3 days. Just keep phone close to call for help if needed.

    6.5 It seems all this cleaning & having a bare freezer & pantry might be good for my BG. Not even the carby vegetable soup has caused a spike. Fingers crossed for you Janice . Its a cruel twist of fate to be getting the flu when 'the virus' is on our doorstep. I had similar a few weeks ago & blamed a friend for bringing her hospitals germs when she visited. Its been a week since I left the house to take the dog to the park......... only 23 weeks to go. We've been told this is to be the new normal for 6 months. That will be Spring here. I was planning on buying another kerosene heater for the back end of the house, but that means I'll have to go out weekly for kerosene. I just dont want to go back to having an open fire as there too much work.

    96 today. Trimming the tangerine and orange trees today. They spread out and reach the house so I need to trim an air space between them and the house so I don't get mold started. Have a fun day everyone.

    88 today @janice21475 - The Mom went missing a few days before these hatched. The sac had been there for 2 or 3 weeks. I went out to water the plants and they were there so I think they hatch and then break through the sac. There is a 2nd sac but, so far, nothing. For COVID, there are many reasons you could be ill. Just taking it one day at a time is the best you can do. Treat the symptoms. Rest. Stay hydrated. My friend was convinced she had it. She was around people with it and then had to travel home. She tested negative. Let us know how you are doing Spiders have a tough life. Birds, frogs, lizards, snakes, and other spiders eat them. I never thought I could feel positive about spiders but, there you go. It is definitely something different and a great distraction from COVID. I hope a couple stay around. They will catch plenty of termites to eat when they start to swarm. Unreal, to me, is seeing how empty the store is when I shop. Everyone cordially avoids one another. There is much less traffic on the street.

    Lee, Since Saturday I have been having a low grade fever every afternoon and yesterday I began developing chest congestion and that flu feeling. It is all too unreal to have fear, all I can do is wait and see. Our weather has returned to early Spring, it had been almost AC temperature. Regards,

    THANK YOU!! I don't believe I have ever seen such a thing! So, they hatched out of that sack-like thing? Wonder if they broke out or if Mama Spider opened it? Your daughter has my appreciation for the work she does. I will include her in my prayers.

    131 Day 19 The sun was out all day and I went grocery shopping. I have been trying to get out of the house at least once a day even if it is to just drive around town. At the grocery sore the parking lot was almost empty, I got everything on my list except Kleenex. Usually I replace the box when I use up a box but when I turned down the paper aisle it was bare of everything except for paper plates, I guess no one is having a picnic. When I left the store I wanted to wipe my hands… but with what? The shelves were empty of any disinfectants and I thought of alcohol prep wipes but I didn’t want use needed medical supplies… so what to use? Down in the bottom of my pocketbook I found 3 lobster hand wipes… hmm. They are mainly alcohol bases products with a little aloe and fragrance, so I used them and went home and ordered a box of a 100 of Moist Towelettes. Last night as I was getting ready to go bed an ambulance went by with its lights flashing… My first thought is the ambulance for someone who has the “virus?”

    An 82 (4.56) today. I'm hoping the soil has dried out from the rains we've had for the past few days. I need to go out and pick up all of the branches that fell off my trees over the winter, and there are tons of them. Once I finish up with that, I need to swap out the snow blower attachment on my tractor, for the mowing deck. The weeds are getting too tall, and I need to mow the lawn before the grass and weeds are so tall that they hide the fallen branches.

    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....

    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.
