    All restaurants and bars ordered closed today in Ontario. Even our beloved Tim Horton's coffee shops. There is 1 on every corner. Drive throughs were ridiculous before I can't imagine now. I wonder if there are rehab places for caffeine addiction. My sis in law (RIP Lois) needed at least 3 Hortons a day or she started jonesin'. I hope they are open in Heaven.
    This is how bad info gets spread. If you are going to post "facts" make sure you get them accurately posted.

    Tim Hortons is NOT closed. I walked in and grabbed a coffee next door 10 minutes ago.
    What I could not do was sit at a table and drink it.
    Restaurants are open for take-out service and drive-through.....if they want to be.

    You know that you are a very poor driver when Siri says : "In 1/4 mile pull over and let me out...."

      • That's good, BWR. A long Spring Break.

        West Virginia reported their first case today. I was beginning to wonder. Hope it's the only case.

          Yep, in the eastern panhandle where I work. I've probably got 3days of work left then the plant I'm normally at will go on lock down and I'll be off for a while......

          • Siapem, the company I contract to, has cancelled all crew changes until mid-May. Anyone on board a vessel is there until then, anyone at home will not be working until that time.

              What made me wonder is the eastern part of WV is almost to D.C. and plenty of cases around D.C.

              Be careful, JB. Everybody be careful.

                  And the changes keep on coming...

                  My wife received a text this evening saying that she'll likely will have to work in one form or another next week after all. Can't really do her job from home but they don't want their clients to feel like they were just dumped.

                  Florida Gov. changed the spring break to now end for the boy on 15 Apr 20. No plans in place for makeup time as yet.

                  Staying tuned here...

                        Who likes paying taxes, Chris? But it's also nice to get a paycheck with the deductions.

                          OK Tim, not closed but can't sit down. What's the diff? It's closed pal.

                          Nothing like spending a couple of thow of Samolians on our 25th anniversary that was planned for dinner today on take out drive through. Wonderful. That 25th anniversary dinner planned today with the 50 of us would have been nice. Not this year. Deposit was a grand, gonzo.

                            You get a cup at the drive thru or get it inside, spill it in your lap and sue for a million bucks. Closed means you're out a million bucks.
