    I just get my electric shears out and buzz away.
    True enough, my final home is still out there, but this is most certainly my home range and I love it. I love every rock I fall off and tree I trip over. Even when I am close to dying from exhaustion, a beautiful sunset doesn't lose it's power to refresh and inspire me and that, in itself, is enough to save me sometimes.

    Just got my haircut. Hope I don't get sick, but at least I won't be shaggy. I use the barber on base. There is usually a long wait. Not this time.

    It's hair. My life is not worth a haircut. If I have to braid, so be it.

    Evidently you use the wrong barber.

    I would imagine there would be quite a bit of wait time for that particular chair.... and make sure the barber cuts only one hair at a time...

    Benesse, you'll look like that if you let your sister talk you into letting her cut your hair too. Especially if she doesn't know how to cut naturally curly hair...

    The first person to be diagnosed in my county was sent home to self quarantine last week. They passed away at home yesterday.

    So heartbreaking! Apparently, this is what's going on in Italy.

    Here's today's most recent update from Dr.. John Campbell about what's happening in the world. God help us all.

    God only helps those who help themselves.
    I think most of the crowd here on this forum has that part down.
    Everyone at work spent the whole day Friday panicking as states started closing borders. I was going around making sure everything was put away, stored properly, and put the machines in full shut down or maintenance mode in case we got the word this weekend not to come back in, while they all ran around with their hair on fire. They thought I was weird for not worrying about food, paper towels and toiletpaper (well... I am a little worred about the TP... but the yard hasn't been raked of leaves yet...)
    It would be for the best if the whole country went into lock down right now, or those people in the states already locked down are gonna be at it for a much longer time and they will panic.
    Two, maybe three weeks, then hit the re-boot button.
    Hopefully they don't wait too long to do it.
    If we are to have another contest in…our national existence I predict that the dividing line will not be Mason and Dixon's, but between patriotism & intelligence on the one side, and superstition, ambition & ignorance on the other…

    It is. Many seniors are not being treated. Their socialized health care system is prioritizing who to treat (rationing), which means many seniors are being left to die.

    Yep, triage. The young get priority unless you got money.

    With limited resources, which, btw we are facing all over the country, how do you make the hard choices?

    There's rationing here too except instead of being determined by age it's determined by wealth. Hopefully our self-quarantine can flatten the curve so that doctors in the US don't have to make hundreds of daily decisions over who will live and who will die.

    I have a friend on another forum that's in Italy. She's scared, and things are very very bad there. Her message is not to waste time. Italy ignored it early on like we tried to do, and when they realized the gravity it was already too late. There's talk of mass graves and authorities haven't been able to remove bodies from homes in a timely fashion. Some have there for days.

    I am going to just stay home! I'll go out for supplies occasionally but I have food, meds, fuel, water, etc sufficient for a few weeks at least, longer if I ration them. My employer is having us work from home. The one thing that's been a sanity saver is getting out to the woods. I'm in Bozeman, Montana so I'm ringed by mountains and forests. The weather is getting nicer so at least I can get a break my four walls.

    Good luck to everyone!
