Things are not simple anymore

Transportation of Interest
If you are traveling like this you just might get the virus and not a roll of toilet paper among them!

For today, (Tuesday):

Evidently I travel in a very limited group of people. I do not know anyone who has bought more than 24 rolls of toilet paper. I haven’t even read of anyone who has.  So I ask myownself “Who bought all the paper towels and toilet paper? I am sure you have seen pictures of the huge empty shelves!!!!

I read something put out by police dept in Sante Fe, TX. that gave some common sense things to go by. And some serious ‘insight to the virus.’
3. This virus is not heat-resistant, and can be killed by a temperature of 78 degrees or higher.

I’m smiling here (not laughing at the situation), I repeated the temperature thing to my son Jack Jr, who is a logical thinker. “Then dad we all need to get it because our bodies are 98 degrees and it will die immediately!” Okay, he is a smart aleck! But wait…. that has some logic to it. If in fact that information is correct.  So please do not quote me as stating fact.
4. If someone sneezes with it, it takes about 10 feet before it drops to the ground and is no longer airborne!
(How so they know this?)

There is so much information and disinformation out there it is weird.  Just today I heard that all these people who are quarantined are actually part of some mass arrests of some crazy plot. Don’t quote that either, that is also a little shaky, methinks.

Take care and live life as best you can until this THING is gone because somewhere in the shadows we have another waiting in the wings of life’s stories. 

I am only inconvenienced, BUT some of you and many others are really being hurt. I pray for us and the nation to survive and live to fight the next challenge.
Take care.

Everything is according to God's plan, as mama said, and I believe her. It is. We continue to pray for our families, friends and the world going thru yet another type of 'flu.' Hang in there, we're staying pretty much, close to home. This too will pass.
loven'hugs from up north where we won't be having 78 degree weather at least until July.

It's a changing world for sure. Some are selling the t paper on eBay and making money off it. Sad world . Will definitely keep praying.

I trust God in it all but you made some great and valid points here. I am sending encouragement cards and asking the three local nursing home facilities in my neighborhood to distribute them to people needing extra encouragement. If everyone participated think of some we could all change even one persons day. My sister told me of a woman who called a local radio station bragging that she bought out supplies at stores and sold them for ten times their worth. She is sending her daughter on a school trip! The cost:$2500! First of all she is horrible and her child is use to mommy picking up her tab and will continue to do so into her adult years. BY the way, do they send kids to Hawaii on this Spring Break trips? Hmmmm.....very curious. MY guess is the hateful human is taking her own people on a trip paid for by idiots who gave her $100 for a package of TP! Stay safe HUGS HEALTH LOVE to all

Several people have mentioned once it warms up this virus should stop being a problem. So Arizona could be good to go in a few weeks lol. So much info out there. How to process it all is difficult to discern at times.

Scratching my head, too! Who ya gonna believe? Overheard someone this morning say, "Remember the good old days, when all we had to worry about was polio." Nothing to do but pray. Then pray some more. Love y'all!


it was shocking to see all the store shelves empty at the grocery store this week. reminded many people of how things were back during world war 2 with rationing. those empty shelves made us all insecure. both my daughters who work in hospital and labs said this is very serious health wise. in fact my younger daughter is waiting to get tested because she was exposed. early this morning i got up and went to Walmart. i was shocked. they were almost completely stocked. it looked normal again. and guess what? they had a whole pallet of toilet paper. everyone was being kind and only taking one 12 pack, in order to leave some for others. we are all in this together. and we will get through it.

I do like the one about the temperature. That was funny.
Those poor people on that truck - no room for 6 feet apart!

Just so you know, my "New" (2018) Lenovo started acting crazy a couple of weeks ago, took to the computer Guru and he fixed it" $90. On Wednesday, I came home to nothing response, OMG. He told me the battery had leaked acid on to the mother board, but he's cleaned it, etc. At any rate, I haven't been "online" for awhile. Have a new laptop, no saved passwords, I WANT TO KILL! Yes, I have a Smart Phone but cannot operate it, pray or send help!!!
