Well, thanks for the prayers, test came back negative but they are having a heck of a time getting her off the ventilator and they can't move her out of ICU until they do. Yesterday afternoon they finally allowed her hubby and service dog in to try to help calm her and are going to try again this morning. Evidently she gets coughing and seizure fits when they try to remove it. On top of that her Mom found out she has a DNR order and went balistic, thankfully Mom is in Minnesota! And, life goes on! Thanks again!

My heart hurts for your family. Prayers for her complete recovery and for you guys to be able to remain strong during this intense health crisis too.

President Trump’s Department of Homeland Security released updated guidelines naming gun manufacturers and retailers as essential on Saturday, which means they are to stay open and operational nationwide during a Chinese coronavirus shutdown.

Good call, now we'll see if Gov Snake gets his head out of his rectum and re-evaluates our rules!

We have the 1st confirmed case in our county. It's a 25 year old woman from NY City. The sheriff parked a deputy outside her place so she doesn't go anywhere. Who knows where she went before she was tested. Just confirms my normal opinion of that region.

Our county has two cases but they won't release who they are. How will we know who came in contact with them?

Our county reached 13 yesterday.

The wife was called back to work yesterday to help relieve the regular folks. She was pretty much by herself passing out lunches to kids at the school. Most are delivered via bus delivery, one of their stops is now in front of our house. Started with a disabled delivery up the road, then 3 kids here Tuesday and a whole bunch yesterday. They were meeting at the normal bus stop.

Working from home ?

Wife's job is "considering" it, but with employees furnishing some equipment. They were wanting employees furnishing everything, but are now leaning toward taking the company PCs home. Some problems; our DSL is too slow, so we'd need higher speed, probably cable ? So far as I've heard no one is installing lines, as they have to go in your house. She'd need a smart phone to patch calls into the PC. The cell phone businesses are closed. We have no space for it, and would need a new desk, as there would be two BIG monitors. So far, the idea is getting a very cool reception from the workers.

It's like if my bus job wanted me to furnish the bus......

This virus scare has been really hard on her, and now she has to worry about losing her job......over the sake of a few more weeks of panic....

Times look confusing, difficult, even frightening, BUT, we are Americans and we never give up.
Here is a song representative of of our past struggles as a nation, and we will continue as a nation to be strong. Enjoy this song, put a smile on your face and stay prayerful, healthy and focused.

Number new cases in FL dropped by 400 or over 1/3 yesterday. Hopefully that is a beginning and will start trending downward. Too early to be good news but hope springs eternal.

Really sucks! My son. coming from the Hi-tech industry was well setup, he was one of those that got bumped by off-shore low-wage replacements, so has been abble to weather the education storm. His oldest has already been accepted to several colleges and met requirements so all are willing to work through this mess but, both she and mom are both very high health risk and he is getting extremely worried now even though the Seattle area seams to slacking off. He is a Metro driver but has been able to avoid the Seattle area, not that that is any consolation!

Alaska canceled all spring bear hunts, except for subsistence hunts. Nebraska and Kansas cancelled nonresident turkey hunts. If you've already purchased your Nebraska tag they're allowing you to hunt. Gonna be interesting to see what the fall brings.

Thanks! Last I heard, she still wasn't feeling great but was home and doing better. It is an ongoing struggle for her. I have to admit, it boggles the mind to think, at such a young age, getting your affairs in order and reaching your 24th birthday are goals.

They kept revising the new cases in FL and it was still lower for 4/4 but not as much as I posted above. Today they show it way down for yesterday about 500 new cases. Hopefully that will hold and keep dropping. Still 2 in our county but I have pretty much stopped everything except WalMart pick up's and a Sunday PM trip to the Post Office to get our mail.

My bus job is maybe going to make my life miserable. They want to limit riders to ten per bus. Instead of the split shift rush hour service I do now, we would follow the "regular buses" by fifteen minutes, instead of the current 30 minutes, to pick up people they had to leave. I would likely have a full shift, doing an entirely different route. I've been doing my route for eight years, I have no idea how the others go these days........

Ten per bus isn't possible with six foot spacing. You might get four people five foot spaced. Also, few of the buses even have ten riders per trip now, so it's kinda stupid in the first place. What is my dog supposed to do, being in a crate for 8-9 hours? Right now, the way my wife's schedule fits with mine, he's never crated more than three. I'm not prepared to make my dog miserable, or give him up, for the sake of a couple of week's stupidity. Why now, when numbers are starting to drop?

Also, we have fifteen buses in the station each time. I can picture if half of them had "rider number eleven" raisng hell over being refused a ride. We have one security guard. I don't think he's prepared for that.

We have a meeting tomorrow to detail it, and I hope my coworkers all want it forgotten about. One thing will help is that some of them have short part-time jobs in the six hour gap between shifts. They would have to quit those. Keep the rider limit, but don't change the routes ! !

Hey the city wants to do that they should post someone at each stop to control the number getting on the buses.

Unintended consequences! The State Fish & Game Departments are gong to lose lots of money! And, the animals are going to enjoy the over population. Maybe we'll have some good hunts later.

My Son drives an articulated bus so he has lots of space and is able to lock the front door but those with the short ones are not happy!

Our Gov just announced school closures for the year, that is going to be a big problem for working families, if and when they get to go back to work, and if they even have a job left. My daughter worked at J.C. Penney and they were shaky to begin with. My din in law worked at Boeing in the electrical service department and was quite secure before all of this.

Wifie was just called back to help with prepping the school meals our local district is providing which is supposed to continue.

All of this and supposedly Washington is improving faster than expected. ????
