    • A few weeks ago I was accused of being Chicken Little running around yelling " The sky is falling." by friends and in other discussion forums. Now I look like a sooth sawyer.

      • I say that toys will be the first to go to the end of the driveway.-----Should be lots of good deals on boats mid summer.-----Gas may well be cheap then , but if you have not got a job it does not matter.----Food and water come first.------I heard that gas was down to 61 cents / liter in southern Ontario in a few areas.

        • Went up to Louisville today to sell my son Mom's house. Called his bank ahead of time and then called when we were it parking lot. My sig was already notarized, just needed his. They open the door and let him in and didn't want to touch the deed. Had him sign and then place deed in a bin and they carried in. He stays in between doors

          One comes back out and he gets the doc's and goes back out

          Went to total wine and picked up 8 boxes of wine, got 5 comments about stocking up, and I said yes. They don't know it cost more where I live and we normally stock up every time we go to a place which is cheaper, our place is $5 more each.

          They have tape on the floor at check out lanes every 6 feet.

              What color was the AquaCar? Light blue, sorta teal'ish color?

              Been on the canal before and saw an AquaCar, not too many of those around, and it was in early March too, possibly @ the Dora Show, I cant remember. It was @ the spring trip I stopped by your place..... propably the same 1....

              See any gators @ the canal? We saw a 3ftr that looked like a fake lawn ornament, as we motored out..... gone when we motored back

                PA’s governor has been 3 - 4 days behind Illinois’ so I expect by next week we will be sheltered in place also.

                    Sad to say, but this may be the wake-up call to bring manufacturing back to the US and stop relying on other countries to manufacture everything we consume.

                        Agree. But then the price of goods will go up because we pay our workers higher wages. Then you'll hear the consumer squak......

                            I think that may be on the way to happening organically (bringing manufacturing back to the NA continent). That may forge a new relationship with Mexico, which could be a good thing. Consumers, standards of living and pay scale will all have to adjust ... might be squaky for a while, but I think it could even out in time (and not to anything particularly bad).
