OK here . Moms - you need to be fixing your kids better meals than a lunch meat sandwich and a bag of Wavy's ! Steak or something like that - even a salad , bake potato ? why not ?

I'm sure with us working together , we can resolve this problem !

Thanks

You sound like my son. He'd love it if I cooked hot meals three times a day. Me, not so much. I'll provide one hot dinner meal a day; the rest of the time, he's on his own.

Thank you for all the well wishes!! No results for my daughter yet, but antibiotics have helped her sore throat/strep throat..... and she has not gotten a fever, so we are hopeful that she does not have covid 19. My older daughter is getting tested because she is going to her future in laws shore house (Maryland) for a weekend in a couple of weeks, and her boyfriends (6 years and counting-hopefully a ring someday) parents are high risk. She has stayed pretty isolated with us since April - has seen a couple of friends who are also staying pretty isolated. The whole thing is so crazy - I'm so glad that my kids are long past the K-12 school days. I really feel for parents who need to work.
My younger daughter is having to stay home from her summer job at the YMCA until she gets her results..... and of course there is no pay while she stays home.

I took Jezebel to an internal specialist at Univ. of Pennsylvania Vet School a couple of days ago - ended up being there from 9:30am to almost 4pm waiting on tests and an abdominal ultrasound. I had to wait outside in 94 degree heat - ran my cars a/c for a few hours but had to turn it off around lunchtime when electronics started to overheat. Then sat with a mask on at a picnic table they had set up under a canopy - I brought a table top battery operated fan with me (thank goodness) and my kindle - haha. She has been so incontinent - even with medication. Really did not learn anything new for $1000 - but ruled out any kidney or bladder issues, no tumors, etc.... so I guess it was worth it. I was able to at least use their bathroom (after a temperature check), and walked to a WAWA (a great convenience store in our area) for lunch. UPenn is right in the middle of Philadelphia. Everyone I saw was wearing a mask - even in the extreme heat.

Well, unsurprisingly, it's happened.

An AKC agility judge had a positive covid test, and judged an indoor AKC agility trial 10 days later. In Texas. No masks. Trial participants and the host club were not informed.

This is *exactly* why I'm mostly staying home...I do not trust other people to make the right choices.

Current CDC instructions say you can rejoin the public 10 days after a positive CoVid test if you have had no symptoms.

Even with symptoms you can if you meet all of the following:
1. At least 10 days since symptoms first appeared and
2. At least 24 hours with no fever without fever-reducing medication and
3. Symptoms have improved

But…..considering how much they have changed their recommendations? I treat everyone around me as if they were infective. Masks, no touching and lots of hand-washing.

Fortunately with my lifestyle, I can distance myself and stay home, and my daughter and son who live with me don't really have to go out much either. My life isn't actually that different from my pre-CoVid life, except that I order some things online that I typically would have just run into a store to pick up. And I've gotten into the habit of having groceries delivered. At the moment, they only charge about $4.50 to do the shopping and deliver it right to my door (and THEY have to climb the half flight of stairs up to the front door, so the groceries are already at my kitchen's level, instead of me having to lug them in from the garage, through the den and up a half flight.) That habit might just stick around.

Right on MC, same here I trust very few with our health.
The only trust I have these days is with Osterholm and it appears Covid will be around for awhile.
So we are working from home until the pandemic is over.
It’s amazing what they can do with electronics now.
Working from home is fantastic.

Oh, I understand they "met CDC" guidelines. Personally, I still think it was incredibly irresponsible (especially since the guidelines were recently revised, and they also advise to quarantine for 14 days...). Anyway...just sharing as a heads-up to those considering competing, etc.

Right now I will only do Nosework trials, because it doesn't requiring being indoors for more than a few minutes, and with no more than a couple of people for those few minutes. I just can't justify anything else. Do I enjoy "dog stuff?" Absolutely. But at the end of the day it's simply a hobby and not worth putting people at risk.

Indiana parents sent child to school without waiting for test results
Indiana parents sent their child to school without waiting for the results of the student’s test.

The Hancock County, Ind., Health Department informed Greenfield-Central Junior High on its first day of reopening last Thursday that a student there had tested positive for the virus, CNN reported.

Superintendent Harold Olin of Greenfield-Central Community School Corp. told CNN that the student had taken a test days before but the family didn’t wait to get the results before sending the child to school.

The news prompted the school to disinfect all areas the infected student had been, according to CNN.

Olin told the Associated Press that the student was confined to the school’s clinic as school nurses tried to trace his contacts.

While the infection was alarming, the school district plans to forge ahead with its in-person instruction. Students are back on campus.

“This really does not change our plans,” Olin told the Associated Press. “We knew that we would have a positive case at some point in the fall. We simply did not think it would happen on Day One.”

Stupid people every where around here - Now Doctor Birx is Warning the rural communities , And it will hit us out here . BTW greenfield is 17 miles North of us .

The reports just keep coming in from schools about kids (and teachers and staff) being infected. I don't know how anyone can be surprised?

And now they expect 250,000 people at Sturgis? Where they will crowd in together not just outside, but in bars? That's certainly going to be...interesting.

And, in the most fun news...it does look like there is a chance people are getting reinfected. We'll see. https://bringmethenews.com/minnesota...19-reinfection

I suddenly find myself in a little hotspot, unfortunately. Early on, in March, a co-worker in my department got the virus and passed away, and no one knew where she got it. Nobody else around her was affected, and that town where I work has had very few cases. The little town that I live closest to, a population of 7500, has suddenly sprouted 45 cases and growing every day this past week, which doesn't surprise me due to its population base of Mexican Mennonites and Amish, many of whom don't even speak English so not sure if they are really getting the news, and one of the churches in the area has refused to stop holding services. I haven't been in that little town for a few weeks, and will definitely stay out of it for the time being. The town where I work, a population of 15,000 has, I think, 9 cases currently. The surrounding counties have all implemented mandatory masks in enclosed, public areas within the past few days. It becomes official tomorrow. I have been wearing one to work until I get into my office - I'm locked in behind 2 doors and by myself.

So that's my story at the moment. My husband has been locked down in a hotel in Ohio this week as his truck broke down there. I don' t know what the situation is in that area, afraid to look!

Now we find out masks with valves are no good!!!!
Geez my studies indicate unless you have an N95 there are droplets seeping out of all sides of a Facial mask.
But N95 are for medical people for sure.
We have masks that have a valve but if you open the valve snappy thing there is a filter in that mask.
When you remove that filter Within the valve it is easier to breath but we opt to leave our filter in the valve along with charcoal filters for whatever good that does when we are out and about which is rare these days.
Boy that was a long sentence.
Over.

Good morning everybody !!!

I called ole Norm yesterday - He has worked part time here on the farm for over 40 years , Norm is my catch cart driver in the fall , So we had a nice talk about what will happen this fall on the farm , You have to know Norm - not a worry in the world , laughs all the time , I will tell you we have fun working together -- Well it's really it makes it not a job . Anyway , Norm informed me that he and his wife were not going anywhere , been just working around the house , Norm and some of his friends collect and restore old John Deere's Like A's , 60's and 70's , They do great work and they look like they just came off the show room floor , So I had to ask - Are you guys still working on tractors ? Oh yeah , but nobody goes out in public , Well OK then I thought

Norm went on to tell me that he had a Doctors appointment and got a clean bill of health - Doc. said see you next year , Now you may want to set down on this next one before reading it . So Norm then went on to say that His wife went with him and they needed just a few things and stopped at Meyers , said they ran in there and Norm said he didn't know what was going on but that place was packed wall to wall to people !

So now my friends , what is Ken missing here ?? He told me he didn't go anywhere - right ? then said they went into Meyers ?? Now how can anybody trust being around anybody ? How do you work with these people and be safe ? I think I'm going to go buy a Harley and head to South Dakota ! LOL

I hear you, Ken...I really, really do.

I have to go into the church office starting tomorrow, through all of next week, to cover for someone on vacation. I'm WELL aware that at least one other person who is there on a regular basis has a much, MUCH lower "safety" rating than I'd give myself. She's made comments about "having 20 teenagers at her house for the weekend." I know for a fact that she and her son were both tested for covid a couple of weeks ago (I'm assuming they were negative???). She is pushing hard for us to reopen. I just really, really don't want to be around people like that because I know they are a lot less safe than I am, and I don't want to be exposed to them. Unfortunately, I have no choice next week. But this is the problem, right? Many people are making a lot of choices that we, ourselves, wouldn't make, and those of us that have to go back to work situations (or never got to stay home) don't have that option. This is exactly why we're seeing big outbreaks, because people aren't following safety guidelines.

Thats exactly why we are working at home.
People say they go no where , but so many really mean they are just doing less than their normal lifestyle.
Just today an email came thru from the office that some staff members decided to have pizza for lunch and wanted to know if others wanted to chip in and share.
Older staff members had errands to run today.
Good job old farts.
Others that are between 20-40 are ready for some pizzas for lunch today.
Yep......love working from home and hanging out under the oak trees.
We are so blessed to be able to work from home.

Now MC-- I'm not blowing smoke here - But I have talked to you before on the phone - which I always enjoyed ! You are smart and have great knowledge ! So what I'm thinking its time for you to move on from your current job - Expand your horizons ! You have a great line of Dog coats and Jammies - may even add to what you have now , From the way I'm picking up on your posts - you enjoy being home with your critters , working on nose work , petting the critters , and having your wonderful husband make you Ribs and Brisket and steaks and chicken and pet the critters Anyway - just me thinking out loud here .

Side note here ! Had a short on line pick up at walmart this morning , I have really enjoy the young people at pickup ! Wish I was that young again Anyway - 99.9 % of the time I have the same loaders - all of us first name basis - lol

One of the regulars loaded me up and I asked how things were going , He said Ken , every since they mandated the wear a mask deal - shopping in the store seems slower and that the on line has really picked back up . Of course I had to ask what he thinks it is - Pretty sure that its wearing a mask that did it .

The benefits of my job still outweigh the downsides.

I know people like to suggest doing coats full time, but people also don't really understand how hard that is. It's not likely that I would make enough money doing that to offset the loss of income of quitting my "actual" job. But I appreciate how much you like my coat!

Big box stores have been having a rough time vs the internet for quite a while (think Sears, JC Penney's, Bed Bath and Beyond, Office Depot)—this may be the final blow.

I think it's a combination of things with big stores. Keep in mind that most of them treat their employees terribly. Low pay, no benefits. They almost never have enough staff to actually properly staff the store with enough people to do all the required tasks. That makes it hard to make customers happy. Now you slap a pandemic on top of that with additionally cleaning, slow down everything with extra precautions, crabby people? It's a nightmare.

I know plenty of people who work in customer service in stores, I have worked in retail...I absolutely have so much sympathy for anyone who has to work in retail right now. Every time I go in to pick up fabric for business purposes I'm so grateful to my "girls" at Joann. And I'm also angry on their behalf. Women that have worked their for a decade - a DECADE! - are making only $10 an hour. These are women that are expected to not simply cut fabric and run the register (which, in my opinion, is still worth a living wage, which is more than $10 an hour, BTW), but they answer so many customer questions about crafting, sewing, and projects...their knowledge is incredible. It's a travesty what they are paid.

Um, yeah. Since he already makes way, way more money than I do and graciously supports the two of us...not gonna fly. He works very, very hard. A long, long work week. I'm going to keep my mouth shut and enjoy how good I have it!
