I'm still waiting for an outbreak of Marburg virus with prions. That would be concerning.

We get the government we deserve.
Whether it's this one or the next, at some point there will be another pandemic. The one of 1918 was a doozy. With the speed of air travel and large populations in mega-cities there could be a nasty one not far off.
Keeping a stock of N95 respirators, gloves, goggles, flu meds, pain meds, etc., in the supply room is prudent. Buy while they're cheap and available.

Itís sensational. Chinese people and their obscure hygiene and eating habits, which many of us find repulsive, plus the epicenter nature of the virus have made great headlines. Coronavirus is nothing new...this is the same family of viruses that cause the cold.
Watching the debates. This virus is now political. What a bunch of crap.

I'd like to live forever but it ain't gonna happen. Besides, there's always someone saying that one needs protection from this or that. Only the rich can afford all the stuff that they say we need. I'll just do the best i can and hope I survive. Besides, this might just be a similar thing like the Y2K bug. I was so concerned that I celebrated the incoming century in eastern Europe.

Almost too late on the masks. The Gov't is buying them in large amounts. On Amazon, the ones you can find are asking over $300 in shipping. Unless they fit perfectly, they don't do much good. I always hated to wear the darn things anyway. They make breathing difficult after 1/2 hour or less due to the restriction of those layers. The ones the Dr's wear in the hospitals are to protect the patients not them. They are way too loose.

I'm just getting over the flu or maybe some other virus. Backaches, sinus pain, headache, post nasal drip, coughing. Classic coronavirus. Covid-19. Or....maybe I just had a cold? If I wake up dead I'll let ya'll know if the panic is worthwhile or not. Until then....Party on Garth!
