  2. https://www.cnbc.com/2020/03/24/bill-gates-us-missed-its-chance-to-avoid-coronavirus-shutdown.html?recirc=taboolainternal And I'm our of reactions again and have already used the two I was given this morning. THANKS and LIKE to all posts since I stopped posting this morning.... except Hook'emHorns who has his horns bent out of shape with his absurd conclusions.
  3. I paid my housekeeper a months wages, told her to be safe and pay attention to the Governor and that I would see her on April 18th... maybe. It's now been two weeks since she last cleaned my house and I miss her dearly. I hate mopping. This thread may be worth reading:
  4. Thank you All Day. I had to go and search for that link in another thread on this subject because it's kinda obvious that MC didn't read it the first time round. I was just coming back to post it here and found you had already done so. I've got floors to sweep and mop and dusting to be done. Carry on.
  5. It would have to be a very large cistern because the rain only falls in a 3 to 4 month period here. 1,000 litres of water occupies 1 cubic metre. If you're only talking about potable water for consumption then it's possibly worthwhile. In this area with it's constant sunshine, I would like to try a condensing unit on the roof similar to this one: https://venturebeat.com/2020/01/13/zero-mass-water-how-the-water-in-the-air-can-save-us/ As to all the other things that use water, we should be reducing, re-using and recycling wherever possible.
  6. Mainecoons, you and I will never agree on this subject. The date that South Korea took action should have been the same as that of the U.S. Obviously it was spreading and South Korea has done an excellent job of keeping it in check. I stand by my opinion of the current administration's very tardy response and lack of preparedness.
  7. When does a government take notice. Where there's smoke or where there's fire.
  8. LOL. I wouldn't ever believe China's statistics BUT, assuming that they lied and knowing the precautions that they DID take (not soon enough btw) were pretty hardcore, it should have been a real wake up call. Travel ban was only for the Chinese... while the virus was taking hold elsewhere and spreading from east to west.
  9. Let he who is without sin cast the first stone. Please remember the words of Trump, for weeks, about this virus. The CDC also sent out faulty test kits. Lots of blame to go around.
  10. So what you're saying is that, if the assumption is that the Chinese "doctored" their numbers and it was obviously so much worse than they reported, perhaps the world should have been better prepared to confront the virus?
  11. Sorry. I need at least two coffees before I get feisty.
  12. I talked to the census taker through the window in my gate. I stood well back. Took less than 5 minutes. They shouldn't be going into anyone's home.
