    Since the last posting got hijacked, I thought I'd post our experiences from this past week. We pre-ordered the crispy duck (36 hrs needed) to celebrate hubby's b-day. When we arrived, we were pleased to see that there were outdoor tables (suitably spaced) and the usual in-door tables with the same spacing. The staff were all in masks, kept things spotless and the waiter regularly rubbed sanitizer on his gloved hands. They had a pretty decent take-out service going and there were about half a dozen tables with diners. So, if you're concerned about dining there, don't be. As for the food, we enjoyed the duck and brought home quite a bit of it (there was a LOT of food for two people. We'll definitely be going back (and probably ordering duck again!).
  2. Thanks to an earlier post by Tom L. which related to Firestick and how to get assistance with this product, I have been able to resolve several problems I had. I can thoroughly recommend the services of Rich. He is very professional, knowledgeable and helpful. Please PM me if you wish to contact him. Edit: I should mention that his prices are very reasonable and he's quick to respond if you run into a problem/have a question.
  3. After reading some of the responses here and in other postings, am I the only one who keeps thinking of the Twilight Zone episode called, "The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street?"
  4. .I saw masks, most worn correctly. If you're concerned, wear your mask and gloves and maybe a containment suit or don't go out at all. Frankly, I'm taking the same precautions I did before and haven't even had so much as a sniffle. I prefer not to get all of that hand glop dumped on me because it's usually antibacterial and this is a virus. I wash my hands when I return. Yes, things could change, but I could get hit by a bus, too. I'll risk it.
  5. I was there today, too, and the cashier was actually chatty & friendly! As Johanson said, the shelves are not full, but the variety was still good. I got nearly everything I went in to get.
  6. For the one who can't seem to read or write English very well...I have quoted this and placed the appropriate area in an underlined bold. I also write and speak English very well. Late add: glad to hear about the consignment shop & prices. We definitely have a lot of things we need to sell/donate.
  7. Does anyone know where they moved to or how to contact them? Calls go to an answering machine and no one calls back. The shop is totally empty and there is a "For Rent" sign on it. TIA
  8. I concur...AMEN AMEN AMEN!!! 4fingers...your conclusion is frightening. Whether or not they ACT like children, they are adults and have earned the right to make their own decisions. I will be damned if I allow Big Brother to creep into my life and decide how I should live, based on my " own good." It's just a small step, but many small steps equal one large fall. No thanks. What I find equally frightening is the number of folks that have jumped on the bandwagon like sheeple. Yelling louder than most doesn't make you any more right than anyone else and those who wish "spittle" to fall upon others seriously need a mental check. Wow, the vitriol that spews when others attempt to disagree just saddens me. There are those here who I do disagree with, but present some strong, FACT-BASED arguments that make me think. They may or may not change my viewpoint, but they definitely give me reasons to listen.
  9. Actually, this is like a flashback to my growing up in a small (5k) town. My dad used to get frustrated because he'd buy something new and never be able to get a repairman afterwards (one shop, no competition). We ended up having two washers, two dryers, two reefers (thank God for a very large basement)...you get the picture. We do the same thing here with certain critical items and when we see something we like at Costco, buy it in super-bulk because who knows if it will still be here next month? No complaints, just observe, adjust and carry on.
  10. Well, I hope that the next flyover doesn't involve their helicopter trying to mate with our roof like it did the last time. It was clooooooose!
  11. MC, this is so much what I've been saying since "this" all began...but you put it so much more eloquently than I ever could. I continued to shop, get a massage, etc, and had others call me selfish, stupid, and/or other choice words, but my point was that if you feel unsafe, then YOU can wear the mask and gloves, hose yourself down in gel, etc. Of course, that's now OBE, but when it was optional, it was MY option. I didn't spit on food, cough on others, etc, and tried my best to respect distances. Meanwhile, I took (and still take) the normal sanitary precautions and haven't had so much as a light sneeze. I honestly think that the worst thing we can do is hide indoors unless we have compromised immune systems because the healthier you are, the better your chances. I realize that it's not an option for everyone, but you can still go out to your garden and move around in the glorious sunshine. Do whatever you can to get moving. And why ANTIBACTERIAL gel when it's a virus? I know there are many who will disagree with me, but I still wish everyone good health and hope this soon ends.
  12. Lol...we both posted at nearly the same time. I'll delete mine and see what responses you get.
  13. Why don't we save time and just report when it's actually working?
