    With the world shutting down and oodles of free time available, what are you going to do to fill the days?
    Build that shed you've always wanted? Paint your masterpiece? Make a couple of babies? How about it?
    Today I decided to open the safe and do a bit of cleaning.

    I am still going to work everyday. Folks are still buying feed for their horses, chickens, pigs, goats, rabbits, etc.

    Since we are old and retired this is nothing new. We can still go out on the lake and desert. Both cars are gassed up. Things should calm down considerably in a couple weeks when the snowbirds are gone. The temps are comfortable for reloading and I have the components to make a bunch of 357 and 38 spl. Could also do 223 if I get bored.

    I have a gazillion listings on my wife's "to-do" list that I may address. Plus my ManCave has a bucket-load of projects. But at this point, I'll need some manly help...

    Make “a couple of babies”? I would think that would anger the wife.
    You KNOW it’s going to happen.

    I posted in my FB page I had no hand sanitizer. Someone I didn’t know offered to give me a bottle and left it outside my door. That was so kind of her.

    Kissing, hugging, loving, reloading, and shooting - if we're going to die of Coronavirus, might as well make the best of it. And are.

    I talked to my grandson today. He is working on his PHD in biology. He is following this closely and has access to information not easily resourced. He said it is more infectious than the flu and while not currently apparent the mortality risk is much higher.
    Use 70% alcohol. 60% wont kill everything. Higher levels like 91% can suspend the virus instead of killing it. Full strength bleach out of the bottle works. Do not cut it. 91% alcohol can be reduced to 70% using water for a hand sanitizer. Gels like aloe can interfere with the alcohol. Use small bottles to reduce alcohol evaporation.
    I put O rings in the caps of bottles to make a better seal. Those little pieces of cardboard dont last long.

    It would appear that 90% of all cases in the Seattle are came from just one person entering the country from China in late January. In like fashion the European influx seems to have in via Iran.

    If you do not think there is some Political undertone to the Coronavirus.
    Check this out!

    CDC Report!

    Today a 114 People have died due to the Coronavirus.
    However,

    The common flu has already killed 10,000 across US as of today. As the US panics over the coronavirus
    I am not saying any of the above is not a serious issue. But shutting down America in fear?
    Something Smells!:rolleyes:


    The flu remains a higher threat to U.S. public health than the new coronavirus.
    • This flu season alone has sickened at least 19 million across the U.S. and led to 10,000 deaths and 180,000 hospitalizations.
    What do you think? Could it be to tank Trump's Economy and achievements?

    Jesus quarantined us overnight. Sent 2 inches of rain with more to come. Can't get out through the water until it goes down. Heaven has spoken and I take it as a sign.

    You need to quote the entire chapter, you can't relay the meaning in just a few words.

    Wait, there is a simple verse, God is Love.
