Out of the Blue

I made reference to adding some pandemic-related pounds yesterday, and in a comment Verno called it the quarantine 15, which I thought covered it pretty well. Then I had a conversation with my old pal Devicer, who hit this one out of the park. He dubbed weight gain from social distancing the COVID 19. No more calls folks, we have a winner.

Literally every governor regardless of party that's taking COVID-19 seriously is seeing massive jumps in approval ratings from voters of all stripes. The one who's approval ratings are taking a dump? Florida's DeSantis. Losing 7 points is even worse than Trump, who has remained flat.
#FloridaMorons is trending on twotter so DerpSantis has that going for him.

‘Someone in our building has it’: Covid-19 fuels tensions at apartments and condos
Yeah, if the condo reveals that a person has a specific disease, they could be in violation of HIPAA and at legal risk. It's a tricky situation. Best to just assume everyone has it and adhere to proper hygiene and social distancing.

Why House Cats Are God's Perfect Little Killing Machines.

Yup, they can't help it. My cats are house cats, never go outside. But I live in the tropics, so bugs and lizards get in sometimes. Man do the cats go crazy hunting those things. Even if the prey escapes, they'll spend the next several days hunting around the house for them.

No biggie. I went back 30 minutes later and it worked fine.

it’s ok

It’s now known that tDump was aware of the virus LAST YeAr and was informed by our own CDC and other American's who were imbedded with the WHO.
Gave them plenty of time to inform their “friend’s” to make wise stock trades and investments.
The number of billionaires pushing for everyone to go back to work early proves one thing and only one thing.

They don't make their money.

The apartment across the street had the third family hauled off due to COVID19. There must be a cluster there. Highlights the need to be extra careful if you live in an apartment. As a family we only transit via the outside staircase, never the elevator. Unfortunately, we live on the 12th floor.

Cool to see Gary is looking and sounding good. Always a fan. He should do 'Are Friends Electric?' acoustic for the irony. Toff

Well that was neat but why were those steel workers doing that? Making cables or something?
