Re: Kat Klub

My cats used to hate any form of grooming, so I feel you on that one! Thank heavens they're more tolerant now that they're older. Try distracting her with a treat? Get her munching on it then swipe at her eye in those few seconds. Next to try, if you sit behind the cat (to block escape) and hold her...

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

Epidemiologist: Flattening the curve makes no sense; CV-19 could be "exterminated" if lockdowns were lifted, the vulnerable protected, and the virus allowed to create herd immunity. https://www.wnd.com/2020/04/epidemiologist-coronavirus-exterminated-lockdowns-lifted/ That theory breaks down when yo...

Re: Predictions for covid case count 12:01 AM 3/22/2020

Absolutely. It will take time before there is official recognition, and then there will probably be a slow, gradual rollout. Actually I now think complete lifting of the lockdown, like permitting mass gatherings, won't happen until Mr. Vaccine comes along. They will probably start with certain group...

Re: Would you wear a mask?

Thank you Pugchief, I needed the laugh! We ended up with the mandatory mask thing here. I used a bandanna. You either have to crush your nose or keep pulling it up every few seconds, so I ended up fastening it on top with a hair clip. That worked well. I really don't think it makes any sense if you'...

My friend's son is a paramedic. He says the number of calls he gets has gone up and down roughly in sync with my plot. So have hospital admissions. There are a lot of variables to be sure, like increases in test availability, but it looks like the wave effect is real.

Re: Kat Klub

Kriegspiel, doesn't that adorable photo of a relaxed, happy kitty lounging on a rug melt the hard edges off your position just a LITTLE bit?

My cats are indoor too. I will defend my little fluffballs to the death!

Re: Shortages caused by refusal to raise prices

Pennsylvania has always been weird about booze. I'm so thankful that New York not only let the liquor stores stay open, they let you order cocktails and such from restaurants for take-out or delivery. Is Pennsylvania's governor not aware that people have CARS? And can drive across state borders? Whe...

Re: Stock scream room

Ad, good to hear from you!!! I figured that the "routine tests" excuse for hospitalizing Boris Johnson was just a euphemism. I was not at all surprised that he ended up in the ICU. It will be quite an event for a major head of state to become a COVID fatality, but that is a strong possibility at thi...

Re: Predictions for covid case count 12:01 AM 3/22/2020

I predict that seasonal allergies will be the new stigma this spring. Headlines next month: “I sneezed at the grocery store and everyone looked at me like I had pulled out a gun.” Yeah, we all have to wear masks now, so no problem sneezing at the grocery store. Tech - there was a small third wave b...

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

It sounds like a violation of protocol by the captain, for sending a letter outside the usual channels. I'd get in trouble if I did that too, and I'm at a university not in the military! And, the usual let's-find-a-way-to-blame-it-on-Trump is getting so tiresome. But, I don't get why they didn't jus...

Maddy I thought you were single too!

I can understand why you are concerned about civil unrest, but...what's the connection to the census?
