Grocery Store Update:  I live near a West Virginia city of 40,000.  I stopped by the local Walmart which is usually open 24/7 but they closed at 830pm just as I was getting there.

 

I moved on to the local Kroger's an hour before they closed at 10p, usually close at midnight.  Even at the end of the evening there was plenty of fresh fruit, plenty of chicken, pork and beef.  Most but not all the bread was gone.  Plenty of alcohol products, plenty of pop.  In fact Coke and Pepsi were on sale for 99 cents, usually about $1.50 or so.

 

I didn't check on TP but I found plenty of OJ.  I like Kroger OJ and bought a couple of gallons which is the typical quantity for me.  The store seemed like it had the usual amount of customers for that time of night, not really crowded, no long lines at the register.  It seemed like there was a lot of employees at the check out (the young kids) and both Walmart and Kroger had signs out that they were hiring.

 

Light traffic on the road, down about 80% by my guess-timate.

 

Here is why I can't play racquetball, as my club is owned by WVU Medicine, Camden Clark Hospital.  This is the entrance.

I don't know how West Virginia churches are doing in recent times with regards to snake handling but I assure you that back in the 1960's in the backwoods of southern West Virginia that snake handling was a thing.

 

Head of the Psychology Dept. at Covenant College, where I worked in IT, had visited a bunch of churches over in Alabama and done video of a lot of the services and did interviews with church members and pastors. While they did handle snakes, it was not a major part of their services, sometimes not at all.

Italy has 74,386 cases and 7,503 deaths.

 

The US has 60,115 cases and 841 deaths (from another site).

 

Does anyone think the virus is not as deadly to Americans?  This is why I say you have to take the numbers with caution.  

 

Anyone care to speculate on why the drastic difference?

 

 

Its because Italians eat that stupid Mediterranean diet, and they eat slowly in groups and take time off of work to talk and relax when they eat, while Americans eat McNuggets, Doritos, and doughnuts and wash them down with sodas while driving to work.  Our country has built up an immunity. 

 

 

Or, maybe it is because Italy is way ahead of us in the curve (two weeks or so, which is a very long time when dealing with exponential growth) and things are about to get much worse here.  In the last week our tested and reported cases have increased ten fold.  We had 6,000 cases last Wednesday.  Oh, we were so innocent back then, in the good ole days.

 

 

Either theory is equally as valid.  You pick.

Good for you!  This is a very big deal, especially right now. 

 

I watched a Ted Talk a few years back where they showed test results where sugar, flour and alcohol all have the same effect on your body as far as your liver and kidneys and other organs (except for the high from alcohol). 

 

Avoid this stuff right now as your immune system is all that you have.  My 35+ years of allergies are basically gone. 

 

Beware, most foods marketed as "healthy" are just as bad as drinking liquor for breakfast every day (insert your jokes here).

 

Here is a good talk (one of many):

Which in turn overwhelmed their hospitals.  People couldn't get treated.

Sarcasm is an ironic or satirical remark tempered by humor. Mainly, people use it to say the opposite of what's true

my Asthma is bothering me quite a bit today. If I get this virus, I'll probably go downhill quickly.  in fact, I just told my brother that if that happens, I do not want to be on a ventilator, just let the clock run out. 

Years ago, I laid in an emergency room for eight hours with my Asthma. This older guy was in there too, whining the entire time how he couldn't breathe.  He got discharged about 10 minutes before I did.  When I left, he was sitting on a bench smoking a cigarette.  Smoking must be one powerful addiction or his memory is awfully short.

The doctor told me one of the affects of smoking is the smoke deadens the Cilia which can make you cough less. Wife found this out when trying to quit cigarettes with an E-cigarette which does not have all the chemicals which causes that effect, and most of the others. She would not cough with cigarettes but did with the E cig, a different/lighter type of liquid fixed that

 

The nicotine is not really the problem with smoking, it's everything else that goes along with it, including other chemicals added.

When my daughter was in TX Childrens hospital we'd walk from the Ronald McDonald house where we were staying to the hospital to be with her.  On the way we'd pass the M.D. Anderson cancer center.  There was obviously no smoking in the hospital or on the grounds.  Every day we'd pass a group of smokers in front of the hospital.  Every one of them would be hooked up to a rolling IV pole receiving cancer meds.

I like that McDonald's has a charity, but question their motives. 

 

McDonalds, cigarettes and cancer, seems like a likely trio.
