Here is an update on COVID 19 actions from Australia. I have a friend there who I

was to visit in September. Looks like my paid for trip will not happen.

Australia has 5224 cases of Coronavirus now with 23 deaths. In my immediate area there are 9 reported cases. That has to be multiplied by at least 10.
Our Prime Minister is saying Australia will be closed down for 6 months at least, that goes into September or even October.

We only have 7 States and 2 Territories even they are starting to put road blocks in place to stop anyone crossing their boarders, this has never happened before. It is now illegal to have more than 2 people at one time together in public, we cannot have visitors to house unless they are family. We are not even allowed to go anywhere unless it is for shopping, going to Drs, dropping off children or exercise. We can be fined $1000-$1600 for not complying. Things are getting more and more strict. If 90% of people comply the shorter time we will be in lockdown.
Trump seems to be painting a better picture of what is happening in the USA than what is happening in reality. I believe in some States the US is still having church gatherings.....What are they thinking!

I went to my first nightly "Howl" tonight. Someone started it in our

neighborhood last week. At 8PM, neighbors go outside and just howl so the world knows we're still here. It's spreading as more and more participate. I even heard answering howls from across major US highway!

I just went through 7 decades of saved recipes. Some hand written,

some cut from newspapers, and some from colored magazines. They were from 3 generations of family cooks. It was hard to throw away so many.

I'm down sizing for a move and can no longer have 3 or 4 boxes of recipes. Been tearing up and crying all day.

Of course, I'm saving some, but limiting it to one big file box full.

Congrats to my local ABC station. They went ahead with their news and

announced if you wanted to see MF45's briefing, it was available on their website!

Just got this in the mail. Notice it's "President Trump's" guidelines, not

the CDC's first instruction is to follow the directions of your state and local authorities.

P.S. It's wrinkled from being wiped down with Clorox.

Just saw my first CDC PSA on the TV. Identifies who is most at

risk, what underlying conditions cause more risk, and to stay home if you can.

Best proof that it was Trump who messed up and not China's fault.


I don't know how to 'unroll' the rest, but read through it. He takes each important date and documents how US failed to act.
