So far the HS basketball playoffs have been going on as usual, I'm not so sure that the annual Boise Roadster Show that was scheduled for the 15th will. Likewise the CTTE (Cruise To The Edge) that Yes has every year. At this point I'm not sure I wanna go on the lake and fish in a boat. Really sad.

One more sad thing, the lobster markets are apparently near collapse after the trade war and now quarantines. Canadian lobsters are flooding the markets and what was a luxury item is almost cheap like canned tuna now.

Delaying taxes ain't gonna do crap for nobody in the long run, the virus needs to go away.

And CTTE is officially cancelled now, according to Yesworld.com, they couldn't get the insurance if they wanted to anyway. :confused:

On a personal level, I was told today our work schedules are being split at the site, I work at, so we don't come in contact with each other. Only three of us are trained to do the job, so none of us will be working with each other. One workmate will cover weekends, only. The other fellow and I will alternate working Monday to Friday, every other week, with no reduction in salary. This will be the schedule for the next six weeks, at least. Got lots of stuff to do on my week off.

Nando.

I guess that's a good schedule, as long as your healthy.

I believe it was 20,000 deaths last year in the USA due to influenza. But that's not interesting news, is it? There have been a couple thousand in Italy (maybe 10,000 globally? not sure) and the entire free world is coming to a halt now.

What I want to know is, what is the "left hand" doing while the world is focused on the "right hand"; namely this virus? Any theories?
