    Hubby got " jumped " at the gas station yesterday on the way home from work. The guy was NOT happy with seeing him getting out of the company truck. " How come are you working in this lock down when ..bla bla bla are all out of work! " Hubby calmly pointed out that our democrat Governor gave the decision on school construction work essential status , up to the school superintendents. Of course they are all going to keep us working regardless the risk. The guy shut up.

    I think he wanted to make sure this guy didn't escalate before he had a chance to pump his gas.

    This one hurts. John Prine passed last night due to the Covid19. I dont care about most every celebrity out there but Prine was never really a celebrity. My uncle gave me a couple cassette tapes when I was younger and one of them had "Spanish Pipedream" on it. I have always thought it to be the most sound advice I ever heard. So, as a memorial I'm going to go plant some peach trees asap.

    Governor Walz sounds great during his press conferences. Can’t say enough good things about how he has handled this crisis.

    We are still at 3. Finally, some good comes from living in the sticks.

    Would be nice if they would update. Case one should be over it by now

    Stay safe man. Wear a mask. It feels weird but you gotta protect yourself in order to protect your family.

    Remember rule # 1.

    Some lady stood like one foot from me in the grocery store line today. I kept looking at her but she wouldnt move. Put on this song on my phone and everyone started laughing.

    How should NY/USA count the folks who are dying at home, avg is 25 a day, Monday NY had 280 and these are not being counted as COVID-19.

    It's the opinion of some the numbers are inflated, the below is a bit scary.

    "Over the last two weeks, the city's fire officials said more than 2,192 New York City residents died in their homes, compared to 453 during the same time period last year."

    PA just closed all K-12 for the remainder of the academic year. I feel for all of my seniors.
