I stay clear of them.

My job has me in contact with 30+ employees, and several truck drivers each day. No telling where any of them have been in the last 3 days. So I take precautions. Not that I'm concerned about me, But I'm concerned of passing it to loved ones that check every box on the high risk chart.
I haven't seen my parents since fathers day, and it was another few months before that. Not worth the risk. Talk and text almost everyday. Just not the same. @ 53....I'd still love to hug my momma and tell I love her in person....


Best sensible post Iโ€™ve read yet about Covid because you mentioned concern about others. You can be a big bad arse no government is gonna tell me I have to wear a mask blah blah person or you can show concern for others and do as you just stated. Donโ€™t be selfish. Great post Ugly!!!

I was being sarcastic, thus the ....... at the end of the sentence. Oh, wait, you have them there too. Never mind.



Okay then, that was pretty funny. I think I miss a lot of sarcasm after I've pigeon holed some of you. wink

Speaking of hands, wash them freqeuntly. Use hand sanitizer. Why not? Can't hurt. Finally, if you have any symptoms, stay home and avoid contact. Those who are high risk, need to be extra cautious and just avoid crowds. For example, we have a dear friend who lives down the street, she is very high risk. We have avoided contact with her physically and observed social distancing. It's really all we can do. But life goes on and we have to live. Life can't stop. We have to find balance. Carry on, Be a man, live life and be kind.



If it saves one life? Really? What happened to you? Is this life really that grand you can't meet your maker? When they brought the crippled man to Jesus and he told them "Your sins are forgiven" many balked thinking.... Well what good did that do?

I better just stop the rant right here before I say what I really want. wink




Is all of us wearing a mask worth it if it just saves one life? Probably not. Is me wearing a mask worth it if it just saves on life? Yes, no brainer for me. In the words of reverend Chesney, everybody wants to go to heaven, but nobody wants to go now.

when my kids were 2-7 years old , it seemed like we all caught their cold/flu's about 4-5 times a year . I hated it , knowing that my wife and I would always catch whatever my kids brought home from school added to our anxiety .
Today , my grandson is almost 4 . My wife is his daycare . When he was around 2 , same thing , everytime he caught something , we would get it . I decided to research methods that could help stop colds/viruses from spreading to us and within us .( think old school homeopathic medicine /research)
This was before COVID . My wife and I started steaming our sinuses , every morning and night using either sea salt or Eucalyptus oil in boiling water . 4 minutes , towel over our heads , hot as you can stand it , deep breathing in steam through our noses . We did this BEFORE we would see any symptoms . We started doing this about one year before COVID , and we are still doing it today .
Both of us haven't caught one cold from my grandson or my daughter ( both were sick 3 times , with bad headcolds before COVID ) . We still do this today because of COVID.
As a old engineering nerd , my theory as follows ------.
Viruses cant handle heat and PH changes . Viruses need time to propagate within your nasal cavities and grow/spread . It seemed like everytime I caught some one else's cold , it was 3 to 4 days after the initial exposure .
I actually look forward to the process , as a preventative against viruses --- and it seems to be working . It also calms the my mind to feel like I have an " extra" method to prevent sickness .
There are limitations doing this with kids , so we don't do it for my grandson . But when he gets old enough , we will have him do it every time he comes home from school .
Give it a try ---- see if it helps .

That is not whining. I was warning anyone in Ohio, or thinking of traveling to Ohio. Sounds like you would be fine with these restrictions. Of course.

I am not paranoid....THEY are out to get me but I have fooled THEM for over 68 years...:)

I do however hope that the vaccine/vaccines are successful and that our country and the world can regain some semblance of normalcy this next year. I am lucky that I have not gotten sick even tho I am in that high risk category due to age but I am very healthy. My job does put me in contact with a lot of people out in the field but so far I've had no problems. But then again i haven't frequented restaurants, bars, etc. this last 8 months but I do miss having dinner and beers with friends. And any fishing gear I've needed comes from the brown truck guys...:)

I've already signed up with my PCP for when the vaccine's are available.....and he promised me NO chip...:)

You were warning folks in Ohio on the Texas fishing forum? You? Giving public service announcements? Lmao.
As for what I'm fine with, I'm fine with you staying home to avoid wearing 2 diapers; the one you normally wear and the one you put on your face.

This pretty much tells me no one knows anymore about the Kung flu than they did in January. Mind you, this is the headquarters for the WHO.

I'm convinced it's almost impossible to stay away from this stuff. I've been work from home since March, always wear a facemask when out (Kroger/CVS), wash my hands all of the time, etc. We've been very careful but somehow i picked it up last week. Didn't go to bars, restaurants, large gatherings, or anything like that. It seems it can grab on to you pretty easy so no matter the precautions you take nothing is 100%.

Felt like I had a week long sinus infection and it turned out to be COVID. Lost my smell and taste last night but otherwise good other than the congestion/fatigue associated with it. I'll kick this soon....ready to be able to breathe again!
