        • Admiral asked me to bring back the hand sanitizer from our river place. Three partially empty bottles. I poured the most empty in the other two and topped off with 95% cheapo Ever Clear ethanol. Then I added about 1/4 bottle to the empty with Solarcaine Cool Aloe gel, topped it off with the high test ethyl and gave it a good shake. All three are a little runny, but potent. ...gotta remember to wait 10 minutes before I light a cigar.

          • Here in GA, it isn't state wide, only Atlanta. I'm sure the wider shutdown is coming.

            I've been staying in and the few times I've gone to the grocery was late at night to avoid people. All the grocery stores have now cut back on hours and are filled with customers. Thankfully I'm not desperate by any means. I have lots of TP.

            • The two big grocery chains in our town are opening at 7:00 for older people. I qualify. The gray hair will be a pass. I haven't worried about TP so far, but I'll get up early tomorrow and check it out, as well as a responsible amount of stock-up to fill gaps at home. Taters, beans, etc. Our freezers are full of protein.

                  GA-Boater, you know there is TWO side to every piece of TP! So don't throw it away until both sides are used... That's my story and I'm sticking...literally, to it...

                  You stated that most of the Corona Viruses were in the Atlanta area. And that is true, but today I heard an interesting claim. Seem in Laurens country has two people are confirmed to have Corona. However, neither one even knows the other one AND neither one has travels anywhere to pick it up. So the mayor has declared that country a state of emergency because they can't figure out how those two contracted Corona... Now that seems very interesting to me... And we now have 287 cases as of lunch time. So yesterday we had 197, today at lunch 287. That is a pretty huge jump for less then 24 hours... Sure hope it isn't contagious from the water...

                      I'll keep that in mind, GM

                      Fulton and DeKalb counties, home to Atlanta, have 103 cases between them. I'm in Cherokee and it doubled overnight to 16. The whole state is under a declared emergency. The trouble is a person can be feeling fine, but still transmit to someone they don't know. More testing is causing the number of cases to jump. There are some drive thru testing sites, but it's limited to medical and emergency folks and doctor referrals only. Still not enough tests to go around. My doctor can't get test kits and she has a huge numbers of seniors.

                      • The stated rate is there are at least ten times the actual to known infections and with such a delay in testing that number could as high as fifty times. You will see a dramatic rise in reported cases as the dramatic rise in testing begins.

                        of course you won't hear much about that on the news as it doesn't scare people enough....

                          I hear it every day - Cases will increase as more testing is done from all the news shows and online reporting. What scares me is not knowing if the guy at store or a neighbor is a carrier because we still don't have enough testing.

                          I can't be tested even though I'm in the most susceptible group. One thing testing is showing is that anyone can get it at any age, so maybe I'm not so special anymore.

                          • I’m just wondering how accurate the testing is .. Are we sure the folks testing positive are actually carrying the virus?
                            Or vise versa ?
                            Had a great time on the rented toon yesterday .. Cruised the Dora Canal .. Passed an Aqua Car and a few classic woodies ..
                            It wouldn’t take much of a wake to swamp one of those cars !
                            Gunna hit a few golf balls today I think .. The campground has a nice little 9 hole coarse .. Free for the campers if you have your own clubs ..

                            • I thought of a way to beat the TP scramble. Our grocery chain offers online ordering and walk in pick up. I tried ordering just one 12 pack of TP to be responsible. Oops, $30 minimum required. Fine. I upped my order to three 12 packs. I really didn't want to hoard, but thems the rules. Gotta wait until next Wed for the pick up. No prob. We have a small reserve at home.
