General Discussion / 4th of July

In these days of attempted destruction of our history, we need to cling even more to what the United States stands for.  My generation fought a world war to keep this the land of the free and the home of the brave. We are a land of laws, not mob rule. Everyone should stand in front of the flag with pride in everything it stands for.

Happy Independence Day!!!

I'm fine! Going to work every day. Think we will start testing blood for C-19 but not soon. Waiting for the right testing and so far, none are very good.
Florida is opening up-- but don't be a jerk and think its fine. We have an idiot for a governor.
Keep wearing those masks--keep washing hands--keep away from crowds (that's more than 8-10 people, IMO)

Hope you're all doing okay.  Has the State started opening for any of you?  We are still shut down until June 1.  Even if we can start going out I guess we'll still be wearing masks for a while.

S-P - Funny, I'm reading an Ann Cleves right now.  Title - The Sleeping and the Dead.  As for TV, the Food channel has a couple that are interesting and also HGTV I think it is, haven't paid enough attention to which channel - has a couple of programs about gutting and refiguring the insides of homes for people, some who are thinking of moving and want the house redone before they decide and another with twin brothers, the ones who did the ring commercials, who also do restructuring.  Interesting what can be done to completely change a house.  And then there's always Jeopardy.

Isn't this a strange time of life? Reading is a good escape (I have yet to find anything on tv that keeps me interested!!) Two books about pandemics-- Pale Rider and Pandemic--- should anyone want to know even more about viruses and what happens!
Ann Cleves writes great mystery books about northern England and the Shetland Islands (two different series). She's the writer the tv series "Vera" is  based on.
Louise Penny is a Canadian writer who writes stories about a chief inspector in Quebec. Love her books.

Hope everyone remains safe and healthy! When your area opens up, wait at least 16 days before heading out to busy areas--and wear a mask!!

Wrote a while back that I wasn't going to become a hermit but that's just about what I did, what we all had to do for the most part.  Used to occasionally wish I didn't have to do something and could stay home; sure have changed that wish!  My son and his wife have been doing my grocery shopping and otherwise human contact has been the phone and email.  Went outside and walked around the house to smell the lilacs which are in full bloom, otherwise just reading and watching TV shows I never used to watch.

Hope you are all keeping safe, taking no chances.  Keep in touch.

We are still in this weird different world--and looks like it will go on for a while. I'm going to work every day but it is like a city-desert out here! Streets are empty and coming home is just weird--so few cars on the road. Our big celebration at work has been when my neighbor gave me a large sandwich cut bag of Bunny bread (Bunny is regional white-fluffy bread, possible more sugar than flour, but OH does it make a fine sandwich!!) We made egg salad and tuna salad and pimento salad sandwiches and you've have thought it was Thanksgiving!! LOL!

Y'all keep safe out there-- wear a face covering (3 layers) and wash wash wash your hands. Probably no need to wash down groceries--just wash your hands! This virus is not digestive--it is respiratory so cover your face and wash your hands. (Don't touch your face while around others!)

And we are going to be positive about this new CSI project that Petersen is excited about-- that would be fun!

S-P - glad you are okay and able to keep busy.  That was quite an interview and WP, as you said, seemed to be quite enthusiastic about doing a CSI reprise.  Would sure love to see it - and it would certainly give us something to get us back to what was our great discussions.  Hope it works out.

Like may of us, I am isolated; my son and his wife do grocery shopping as necessary and we made arrangements with Express Scripts to have all my meds delivered through them.  So other than finding something to keep busy with this forced inactivity I am doing well.  Thinking of all of you and praying we get through this quickly.

Hello Friends!!! Hope everyone is safe and healthy! WEAR A MASK!! (something to cover your face that's 3 layers!) And wash your hands!
I'm working every day-- as an essential worker for the state. We feel we are safe at work because NO ONE comes into the lab! We are not testing for COVID-19 but there are lots of other testing going on that we continue to do daily--like testing water so you have drinking water.
Here is an interview with Petersen yesterday (April 3)

He talks about his kids, and the possibility of a CSI reunion and sounds excited that it might happen--but might not due to Hollywood being shut down like the rest of the world.

Stay safe!

Dyneemo,  Great to hear from you.  Hope you'll stick with us.

I, too, am homebound for the second week.  My son and his wife did my grocery shopping Monday.  All of my children and even grandchildren call or email to make sure I stay at home.  I did actually get out of the house yesterday - long enough to start the car to make sure the battery doesn't die!

It's being able to touch base with all of you that makes it possible not to go bumping into the walls.
