Re: COVID-19 Impacts- No Conspiracy Theories

I went to Trader Joe's this morning. They have modified hours, and the first hour is for seniors & disabled (8-9). I wasn't going to go right away because I figured there would be a morning crowd. But I checked the traffic graph that Google Maps provides, and it showed things were calm. So I got th...

Re: Christopher Ward C65 Blue Trident

So the Sellita movement must need some break in. Per the manual I wound 22 times and it only lasted 11 hours before it stopped. So this morning I wound it 40 times and we’ll see how long it lasts.

To be honest I didn't TOTALLY hate it until the all-sapphire wrist shot. Then the pictures of the cars. It's so bad I can't look away.

What's everybody doing to de-contaminate your groceries, whether you buy them or they're delivered? Or do you just wash your hands before and after handling and not worry about the packaging? Here is an article from Vox about cleaning mail and groceries: https://www.vox.com/the-goods/2020/3/27/2119...

Re: COVID-19 Impacts- No Conspiracy Theories

Well, our County officials are, let's say, not taking this as seriously as I believe they should. The pertinent part of our "shelter in place order": All businesses, jobs, and workers are essential to the financial health and well-being of our local economy and therefore are essential to the financi...

A bit expensive for an STP1-11. But I really like the look of it. That linen dial is awesome.

Right now Italy is the worst case scenario, if the USA reaches this point we are looking at 32,700 deaths. Right now our death rate per million is 50 times lower than Italy. Man, I have not seen anything that indicates we aren't exactly on Italy's path. Especially now that many republicans seem to ...
