  1. I planted my garlic last October. Thinking of digging out and establishing a vegetable garden in the back yard this spring. The prior generation all put in Victory Gardens during WWII.

    [mention]dtel [/mention] planted tomatoes, eggplant and a lone strawberry plant. I really would like to plant some cucumbers and green beans, but we don’t have the seeds.

  2. Don’t think I’d be this fatalistic. If you’re in somewhat good health odds are still very much in your favor. You could need some fluids or a little O2 and antibiotics and you’d be good to go. Stay home and forego those simple things and it might be curtains. BTW I abhor hospitals but they are not places to go to die. Just obey and be vigilant. Make sure the meds they administer are correct and in correct dosages. And above all else if you’ve got a lot to live for - fight like hell to live.

    I’m not in good health I have COPD brought on by mold and mildew after Katrina. Yes I have a lot to live for, but I refuse to die alone.

  3.   Thank you for applying for a Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) Loan with XXXXX XXXXXXX. Bank. Below is an overview of the next steps with regard to your application.  
    1. Once we have all of your information, the Small Business Administration (SBA) requires us to verify the accuracy of your application. That means that we must review your payroll calculations and all documentation that you submitted, and certify that your loan request is based on accurate numbers and calculated correctly. This takes time, and we appreciate your patience.
    2. After we verify the accuracy of your loan request, the next step is for us to submit your PPP application to the SBA through their system, E-Tran. All customers for whom we have received an E-Tran approval from the SBA will receive a notification to that effect at the end of the day. Due to the volume, we are not able to reach out individually as each approval is received. If you get to this point and decide that you want to cancel your application for any reason, please email XXXXXXX XXXXX with your request. 
    3. Once we receive the E-Tran approval and we have a complete application with all required supporting documentation, our PPP/SBA system will send you the SBA note and borrower final application to sign. This is the key step. Please remember that, as a condition to the PPP loan, you must certify in your PPP application that current economic uncertainty makes your PPP loan request necessary to support your ongoing operations. In other words, if a PPP loan is not necessary to support your ongoing operations as a result of the current economic uncertainty, you are not eligible for a PPP loan. 
    4. Once you sign your note, you can expect that funding will be forthcoming. If you have a XXXXXX XXXXX Bank checking account, we will deposit the funds into the checking account or use ACH. Please note that, at this time, the U.S. SBA has not released the SBA note to the banking community. We hope to receive that today, April 7, 2020, but we will not fund approved loans until we have received the note from the SBA. 
    We know you are eager to have your application approved and the funding in your account. Please bear with us as we work through the extraordinary amount of loan applications we have received over the past few days. We will continue to update our XXXXXXXXX page and will post to our social channels (FacebookTwitter and LinkedIn) with the latest information. 
    Thank you for your patience and understanding. 
     

    This sounds “promising”????

  4. I understand that and wasn't suggesting they were the problem -- their government is.  my point was the people are human bodies just like the rest of the world, so with that many people in close quarters, their numbers shouldn't be less. They don't have magical immunities that the rest of us don't have. 

    And this is a major concern for the rest of the world.

  5. Is the US finally waking up to the complete and utter mishandling of this pandemic from the start by the WHO?
     
    I believe there should and will be a complete revamping of this institution when the dust ultimately settles.

    I sure hope so!

  6.  
    There are other free video apps available that run on mutiple platforms. Skype, Viber (our favorite), QQ (Chinese progam that works well but don't have a clue about security with it). I know there are other, too.
     
    We've done three way calls between the US/Philippines/Ireland, and Viber worked great.

    Haha! I’m technologically challenged...which is why I use an iPhone! FaceTime works great and the kiddos are all nearby.

  7. Grandchild number 13 on the way.  Don't post photos of my family since it is their likeness not mine. but, a couple of my grandsons look like little hippies ... hair below their shoulders ... and I love it. I let them know when I see them I approve of their long hair. 
     

    No worries. My daughters post the pics of their children all over social media, so I know they don’t mind me posting them here.

  8. Encouragingly NYC is reporting that fewer of its inpatients are requiring intubation. They seem to be curbing the severity of the disease in a general sense. Ironically governor Cuomo has restricted the use of chloroquine drugs to inpatients. 
     
    There is more than one path to defining medical treatment. Fundamentally when urgency matters strict research protocols can be sidestepped as long as it can be done safely. No harm - no foul. Chloroquine is not voodoo. It is a long-standing drug that medicine has used safely for 1/2 century. 
     
    Does it work? Well we do have a gauge - the media. The media is trigger happy, anxious to find and trumpet any story to discredit the federal government. If chloroquine definitely did not work we’d have 4 inch headlines proclaiming its failure. We do not see those. In fact currently what we have is nominal reporting and some of that is actually encouraging.
     
    So if you have covid19, breathing 40 times a minute and still not oxygenating while on 100% oxygen then you decide for yourself whether trialing a safe experimental drug cocktail will save your life. As for myself - i won’t wait that long. We can complete the academic studies when the emergency is over. BTW there are many drugs being used in exactly the same manner as chloroquine. Chloroquine is only controversial be because of politics. It would seem likely that naysayers here would embrace chloroquine if it came to light from a different source. Politics indeed.

    So chloroquine can be used on an out patient basis in New York? [mention]Bosco-d-gama [/mention]

    Very well stated!
