Hanta virus » Post #2

Tue Mar 24, 2020 06:35 in General Talk

As far as I know, it is not new.

It is a virus that spreads due to rodents such as rats and mice.

You said wouldn't need to worry about Trump being re-elected.

It's always a bit of a battle when it comes to North and South in the USA.

In the South, we are gun toting, take no shxx, believe in the full constitution,
agriculture, our land, our house and we don't allow anyone to take any of
that from us. Our employment is our land, our families. And our religion
is strong.

In the North, it's a bit different.

Trump won the electoral vote.
Hilary won the popular vote. The reality is, she won.

So when I say not exactly, I am saying the South still believes in Trump.
And we still have the electoral so he very well may be our president for
a second term. We're not fooled by the media.

Walmart USA - March 23 » Post #6

I keep thinking our outing to Walmart is over but we are getting up early to
go this morning. She has a prescription to pick up that the doc called in for

Every Tuesday, Walmart is opening one hour early for those 60 years and older
for one hour before others. The pharmacy is open to that early. 6am

We probably won't be there until 6:30 but I am curious to see if there is any
difference in regards to what is in stock.

I bought this house less than 2 years ago. After my husband died, I sold my house
and property and moved to another State where my sister lives.

Most houses in this town do not have basements. They have crawl spaces but no
basements. My house does not have a basement.

The septic/pipe is in the front yard. The back flow goes at the septic pipe and has
another pipe. So now there is two pipes in my front yard. They are covered with
dirt but I know where they are, of course.

Yes, it would be much more expensive if one had to drill or jack hammer through
a concrete basement.

No, back flows do not allow a back up. That's the purpose of them, to keep sewage
and water from backing into the house. If the town gets a lot of rain or has issues
with their old pipes, water could back up into peoples homes.....but it won't mine
because I had the back flow installed. And if there is ever an issue with my pipes
inside my residence, I would know it because the water/toilets would not drain or
flush. That's the purpose of it. It won't allow for back up so if there is ever a
problem, I would know it is due to a problem with the pipes in the house or under
the house, not the city sewage pipes.

Just the opposite in regards to insurance. You would have a big problem trying to
get the insurance to pay if you did not have a backflow and you did not have any
kind of a policy for the sewage drain system. It could be a fight between the
owner and the city. Most insurance policies only allow for $1,000 to $2,000 sewage
protection. It could be more of course if you want to pay for more coverage.

Yes, I have gas too. I have gas cook stove, gas water heat, and a gas pack for
heat. Like I said, this is an old coal mining town. And there are times when the
winters are bad and electric goes out. If all you have is electric heat, well, you
get to stay cold until they can get the power back on. So some people have gas
packs which is a relatively new thing. So my heat is gas.

Yes there is not as much staff at Walmart these days.

Thus far, Walmart in my area has not set any limits at all.

I did notice the cashiers are now wearing gloves!

My sister and I went to Walmart this morning. I get my prescriptions there so I really
needed to go in order to get my 3 months supply of blood pressure meds.

I didn't see much shelf stocking going on. There was no toilet paper, no paper towels,
little detergents, no hand sanitizers, no bar soaps. Many shelves are empty in the
grocery department. It's actually mighty sad to look at.

They did have some supplies in that was not there before. We bough flour that they
did have in, they didn't before when we were last there. They also had dry powdered
milk that I had been looking for every where, so I was happy to get that. My sister
uses the Walmart great value brand powdered creamer for coffee and they have been
out of it but had a large supply in so she bought several of those.

We wore surgical masks and gloves. I also wore a baseball cap and my big dark glasses
that I have to wear from the cataract surgery, plus I was wearing a hoodie. I looked like
something out of a nightmare.

So altho they are consistently out of many products at Walmart, they are still trying to
stock the shelves with what the truck brings in.

It IS clogging sewer lines. It's crazy.

Well believe it or not, I do have a little experience in plumbing.
My mother and step father owned a plumbing, heating, air business all their life.

When I bought this house, since it ia on town system, I ask about the plumbing.
Since there was not a backflow in place, I paid a bit over $400 to have one
installed. It's something may not ever be needed but it gives peace of mind.
Every house/business should have it if they live in an area that has a city
septic system.

Since this is an old coal mining town, a little elevated, hilly streets....up....
down.....up.....down.....slightly, and not knowing how old the pipes are
under the ground, and the amount of rain it gets here, I felt it was wise
to have the backflow installed.

Well for starters now there is an outbreak of plumbing issues. So if anyone is getting
rich right now, it appears to be the plumbers. When going to the residence or business
they are finding mass toilet paper, wipes, paper towels, napkins, and even other stuff
that has clogged the pipes!!!

What the heck is wrong with people? You don't flush anything down a toilet except
toilet tissue.

The next issue.....that is NOT an issue at the moment, is a major disaster. What if
we had some sort of devastation some where.....people would have to gather together.
What a giant mess that would be.

I don't wish this on anyone, any where. I feel sorry for those that have lost love ones,
no matter what country they are in. I sure don't see this as a country competition.

How much will life change after Corona?? » Post #13

I think they need to focus more than they are in the media about the life time damage
it can personally do to those infected.

It's not just about dying. It's not just about having it for a couple of weeks.

It's also about the long term harm it causes. It's been stated the lungs can
become damaged for life. So even for the young, they may find themselves
suffering in their older age with lung disease....all due to this virus.

I am sure I do have money there but I don't care what they do with it.
I'm positive it is not much.

The thing is, whatever profile I have in there, has changed. My address,
my bank, everything is different. Also I had a business email addy that
I no longer have.

You want to consistently drink hot fluids.

Coffee is good. Hot coffee. Hot tea.

Hot soups. Hot vegetable soup.

A major issue with the coronavirus is respiratory. A big cause of the respiratory is the
thickening of the respiratory with flem. So you want to keep your lungs and respiratory
tract as broken up as possible and by that I mean to consistently drink hot fluids. HOT.

It's worth watching just to watch Joe Exotic.

Well, it's a hatred that he takes way too far of the woman that owns the Big Cat Rescue.
I mean, wayyyyyy too far.

So yeah, there is a lot of drama to it.

Did you hear what the USA is doing now with hogs?

They raise the hogs here in the USA and then ship them to China for slaughter
and packing and then ship the packages to USA.

I'm glad I am not a meat eater.

It's so pitiful how animals are treated today.

No, it's not a debit card.

Yes I joined STP years ago when it first launched.

It's a thick white plastic card. On the front it includes ID number, Payment Code, and Secure Code.

On the back it has 'The TrustCard Advantage - putting YOU in control!'
And more info.

The front also includes their toll free number.

I should log in over there because I know I had a few bucks but it is probably gone now anyway.
Whatever I had, they can donate it or keep it.
