  1. Correct on both statements. But as I said in the first post - we're (this group) is not the average American. I do wish someone, anyone would read what I write instead or pulling sentences out of context. It's not the first time this has happened. A good friend of mine just recovered from CD19, he is a lucky one - now he's immune unless another strain forms. On the other hand we have to survive the next several weeks or months while worrying.
  2. There will be a small percentage that will suffer long term ptsd but most people recover in about 3 weeks. Yep. That's just crap and you know it.
  3. ...and you of all people should know better than to compare 1918 to 2020.
  4. By they way these are also the same things that were said to me when in early February I was criticized for saying this would be very serious. And that was based on strong medical information. Fantasy is nice - reality is what gets us through the day.
  5. There will be a small percentage that will suffer long term ptsd but most people recover in about 3 weeks. If you really believe that - there's a bridge I'd like you to buy.
  6. It's hard to believe people can't tell the difference between 9/11, 1918 and this - that's just myopic.
  7. Missing the whole point of my comment. It's not about money or wanting. How long will it take a 4-top to feel comfortable sitting next to another 4-top, sitting next to another 4-top? How long will it take people to feel comfortable to go to those very, very close theater seats. How long will it take people to fly in close quarters? How long will it take people to sit in a closed arena to watch a sporting event? How long will it take people to visit a friend's home for a dinner party of six or eight? Could go on and on, but remember, the foodie population here is a lot more forgiving than the general public. While we may not have a problem with one or any of these, the general population will. Understand society, this is shaken us/them to the core. We, in all our high mindedness, don't have the ability to save the restaurant industry as we knew it. Take-out and delivery is the restaurant model of the post-Corona era - IMO of course.
  8. Why would anyone assume there will be restaurants in a post-Corona world? We may get so used to not having them, that we may realize we don't need them.
  9. So Russia (if one believes their numbers) has only 1852 CD19 people and they have done little to contain. What are they doing right that the rest of the world isn't?
  10. ...and if you come to Staten Island, I'm preparing an Easter Feast. Leaving most of the food in the lobby for people to take as needed. God bless all.
  11. Well if you want to visit Midwood and/or Williamsburg, Brooklyn, you can still experience the real thing. CD19 not allowed there(s).
  12. Serious question - Is Paris open?

    Today I played...

    Beach Boys - Kokomo. Always thought it was their most underrated song.
  14. Found this new show on re-runs - "Law & Order" - it's very good and there are 456 episodes to watch.
  15. Parsley pesto is very nice - add a bit of nutmeg. Dill - buy a fresh salmon filet and - well you know the rest.

    Been making a lot of popovers - with all types of cheese toppings.
  17. I don't want to stray into politics, but I'd always heard that deficits were bad. Not in this world at this time.
  18. With the $2 trillion aid bill failing in the Senate, be prepared for a historical drop in the markets tomorrow. But please be aware an aid bill of $10 trillion is what's needed - at least if the projected timeframe of the virus is correct.
  19. Two hours into virtual lockdown and all is well. Will attempt to give town crier updates as the situation warrants.
  20. Grossly overpriced and doesn't work as well as glass marbles and an Ah-So Puller.
  21. This isn't political it's a law situation. Just to clarify, even if a president declares Martial Law, she/he has no right to stop an election. However under Martial Law, local leaders (governors, mayors, judges etc) do have the right to suspend elections until martial law is revoked. But if some of the medical pundits are correct, this may/could happen - and not briefly. There is no stipulation on how long martial law may stay in place. On the other hand, election laws can be changed to allow more early voting - and more electronic options.
  22. For the record - Park Side is located in Corona - hmmm...
