Just going out to get a hair cut. Might panic stockpile and get it cut twice o_O
The situation in California is in a constant state of flux.

As of this morning, there is a shelter in place order for the counties surrounding the San Francisco bay area. Travel is very limited except for essentials.

https://news.yahoo.com/san-franciscos-police-department-says-213513000.html
"While police patrols will continue to go around the city, the SFPD spokesperson stressed that enforcing "shelter in place" through fines or imprisonment was a last resort."

We do not live in those areas but are sheltering anyway. This is a good time to do some maintenance on our bikes.

My favorite local craft brewery tap room was forced to close. So they created an on-line sales scheme whereby
one orders their beer and pays on line. A pick up time is established. One drives to the door and an
employee loads the order into the car. I picked up 2 cases of pints (48) yesterday. Might last me (probably
not) for the 3 weeks we are to shelter in place. I believe they will deliver to one's home as well with a
minimum 1 case order. One day delivery, California only.

One of the potential cures before the vaccine arrives is

Chloroquine, which is related to quinine used to Tonic its bitter taste, both are anti malarial drugs.

So G&T may be good for you after all.

I recently bought an MXQ-Pro android TV box off Ebay for $38. So I have Youtube on my big flat screen TV through the National Broadband Network..
Right now might be a good time to improve Youtube, by government-funding of making videos of university lectures - particularly in STEM subjects and philosophy. People who are sitting idle can still be improving their own education by using the NBN effectively. The ABC's Q&A format is excellent. - 'Information was ,meant to be free'.

Collectivism is the most fundamental Australian value. Not that John Howard would ever admit it. He led the charge to crush the unions and casualise the Australan workforce. The leadership of the US, the UK and Australia are now all neoliberal conservatives whose ideologies are based upon individualism . Coronavirus might show them in their true colours. If any of them fail this test and cause undue hardship, they might all be finished forever.

I never really understood what the Poms went through in WW2, until I went to London. Hardship has really shaped their mentality. I was in Australia during WW2 - we escaped virtually untouched.

I wonder if she still eats "whale meat" ????
Maybe that's the secret to her longevity!
The Japanese eat tons of the stuff, and what it the average age there?
