Politics aside how is everyone doing

Just before Seth gets snowed under as our only American Cousin.
I'm hoping Seth everything is good with you.
If I remember your confined to home and work didn't want you for awhile and your wife is working from home.. Hope all is good for you and your family... :purple

I got a shitload of Endones handed to me. Handed a bit more than half back to the pharmacy a month later.

what ouch.?

U OK?

I'm good.
This is the life I have lived for two decades now, more or less. . From choice. I saw no real benefit for me in human interactions, bar the absolute minimum. Hard lesson to learn. I am well prepared. BUT , I have to say, when I heard Libraries were closing.. AIIEE!! Now that I'm NOT ALLOWED to do all that social stuff I want to.!! :roll
Only kidding. :bgrin


But as I've said elsewhere.. it is PHYSICAL isolation that is required, NOT SOCIAL.
That is a much MORE INFORMATIVE name, don't you think.?
Not my idea.. I was watching ABC24 sometime in the last couple of days, and an expert on sociology and psychology pointed out this is a perfect example of poor communication.

IF you mean PHYSICAL distancing, then say it.!!

Oh well lots of mistakes made, and lots to come.

I walked my dog around the block today... only one person, a neighbour on a nearby street was in his yard, and gave me a yoohoo.. how're going.?

Good mate. Yourself yeah good.. HEY you supposed to stay home, just kidding.. I said uh ah.. allowed to walk your dog around the block.!!

But all friggin' day my next door neighbour.. a real fruitcake.. OLD neighbour, was out whipper snippering his boundaries this morning.. all morning. :roll
he has over 3 Ha.

THEN he got on his fucking Kubota slasher/mower and spend ALL DAY MOWING. I my goodness me. THAT should be the last time. He does this regularly, usually before guests arrive. :roll

Tomorrow morning he'll probably use a blower on his gutters.. another regular occurrence... But then what'll he do..? oh oh..

Thank you, Don.

My wife, an office worker, is working from home. Her "desk" is her sewing table which we moved into my study because that's where the router is. Yesterday we bought her an office chair to sit in, and I assembled it.

My daughter is single, no kids. She's living with us and can't work because she's a licensed esthetician, and that occupation requires close physical contact with clients, and that work is completely closed down. She got accepted for a bartending job, and then the restaurants and bars closed down. So my wife and I are supporting her now.

Having retired from police work, I have a retirement income. But my part time teaching job is closed down. I was earning about $3000/month at that job. Being a part time contract worker, I have no paid vacation at that job, so we're just going to have to do without that income for now. I do not draw Social Security yet. I'm 64. I could draw Social Security, but that would be considered an "early retirement", and the monthly income is by far lower than if I wait until the "full retirement" age of 66, and so I don't plan to do that until then.

My daughter and I have been binge watching shows on TV. We have watched all 8 seasons of "Homeland", and last night we watched the first three episodes of "Band of Brothers". I've seen it before, but she hasn't. The only place we go is to the grocery store. We're planning on taking a walk in a nearby park later today.

Cabin fever ....

Cabin fever ....
Glad to hear you guys are all healthy. I'm lucky i'm on 5 acres so plenty to do. I can still go out and work but had a few days off, I have a bit of a chest infection.
Might be worth looking through this thread on TV. You might find something that resonates.

We decided to eat 2 pieces of fruit a day and to take a walk even if just around the block—exercise and staving off cabin fever.

I've gone into self-isolation. Just me, some Irish whiskey, and a limited supply of toilet paper.

Too many idiots out there not doing the right thing, so I'm not going into work for a few weeks.

My guitars and Netflix will be getting a hammering.

Scotty from Marketing will probably put us all in shutdown tonight, or on the weekend, anyway.

If you don't mind my asking, what do you do for a living Greg?

Is there any way the rest of us here can hear your hammering on the guitar? Have you ever put anything on YouTube?

I'm in Industrial Relations.

I'm on YouTube, somewhere, but I'm not saying where :bgrin

I went and bought 10 packs of guitar strings last weekend, so a few of my guitars will be getting restrung over the next few days.
