    I saw that and laughed. There were quite a few tweets along the lines of "Hey, I have to be stuck with my kids all day, don't take my booze!!"

    BTW: My sister in Las Vegas made a mad dash to the dispensary last night because weed wasn't classified as an essential business, and they are shutting the inside options
    though several of them plan to deliver in these dark times.
    I wish Arizona was as laid back as L.V. was, though one of her kids was hassled by the cops yesterday for taking photos along the strip of all the shut down casinos.

    Weed is still not legal here (god forbid) it's on a referendum for November because the dumbasses in Trenton are too stupid to just make it legal. At this point, I'm just hoping to be around to be able to vote yes because I know it would help me. Medical weed is allowed here and is considered essential but the qualifications to get it are too narrow for me to qualify in this stupid state even though I have severe chronic pain from permanent nerve damage. Apparently the assholes consider opioid addiction a better alternative than just smoking some weed and taking much lesser amount of other addictive pharmaceutical drugs.

    I have a really good pain management specialist who works with me and a high tolerance for opioid meds as it is, but ti would make both our lives easier if things didn't have to be changed up all the time so I can just get a decent amount of sleep at night and function during the day.

    I gave up on Walmart but I did swing by Harris Teeter (now owned by Kroger) and I was pleasantly surprised to see that the store was spotless and well stocked. Hopefully it stays that way. I could get pretty much everything I wanted except TP and paper towels. No complaints whatsoever. ^_^

    We'll stick to shopping on line with home delivery. Our local supermarket does it for 5 euro delivery charge. That's fine by me.
    Self isolating for the duration due to vulnerabilities in the house. We'll manage.

    PS Stay safe everyone and stay well. This bloody virus doesn't care who you are.

    And the 3 of us are sick. (cough, headache, no fever as of yet)

    Nothing bad so far. I called our Doctor and he recommended at this point, just saying home.
    No tests at the E.R. anyway and our symptoms don't warrant going in.
    So we are hydrating & sleeping on and off.

    The Doc said that honestly I was the only one he was worried about as I smoked for 30 years,
    but if any one us have real difficulty breathing or start getting a high fever , call 911
