Beat this for exciting things to do while sheltering in place.

1. Going through stacks and stacks of magazines ripping out pages to keep that I will probably never look at again.

2. Ordering broken refrigerator parts from this map

Press needs to figure trump out

A normal person, most everyone, who is leading a question and answer session WILL be affected by a provocative or critical question and listen and respond to facts. It's human nature.

The man, for the last 50 years has probably been barking out orders and yapping on and on with zero pushback.

Trump does not react as most do. He's got the mics turned down for press ( once heard him say he can do this). So when someone asks, he just talks loud and obfuscates and riffs.

So obvious after watching CV briefing yesterday.

Press can work on battling this. But they've got to stick together.

Smart 17 year old in DC



A 17-year-old who asked not to be named wears a yellow hazmat suit, gas mask, boots, and gloves as he walks with his family, from Gaithersburg, Md., under cherry blossom trees in full bloom along the tidal basin, Sunday, March 22, 2020, in Washington. "I'm not worried for me since I'm young," says the 17-year-old, "I'm wearing this in case I come into contact with anyone who is older so that I won't be a threat to them." He plans to wear his protective outfit for coronavirus each time he leaves the house.

Ideas on what to do to help from home?

Would love to hear ideas.

Bored, we cleaned out closets. Have tons to give to Goodwill..but thought, when it stops raining put in front yard. "Dollar Sale"

With a box to put $ in, and a sign "all $ goes to____ ( local food bank? Whatever charity helps people during pandemic).

What's the protocol for making a trip to the grocery?

Been good, holed up at home, but if you need to go to the store, what do you do?

I wore my new disposable gloves, wiped my cart handle with the disinfectant wipes they had at entry.

Shopped and didn't get near anyone. And then the checkout guy said..."those won't do you any good (gloves). The virus is airborne."

Don't really understand the difference? Have always heard it is a "substance" - oil coated droplets that "land" somewhere - so don't touch things.

So what are you supposed to do if the virus is flying around in air? Can't buy masks.

I know, this is a very simplistic view.

Ever have your intuition, radar go off that someone is an asshole?

Getting that with Fauci. Hope I am 100% wrong. But anytime we all put 100% faith in what one guy thinks/says...my immediate reaction/nature tells me "get another and another opinion.".

Kick in the fact he's affiliated with MF45. And he seems like a showboat. Might be our 2020 "Brownie."
