I read an article and this social distancing is effective if it's done for about 5 months and it will die down somewhat and come back as an another wave and we'll have to repeat that process over and over until a vaccine is produced. So with that said be prepared for the government to lengthen all those measures that's supposed to be only 3 weeks and be ready for the economy to crumble big time because we have to support ei checks and all the businesses that will hurt.

That close to 1 million checks more per week just in our province. So my guesstimate is 550 million dollars every week in extra expenditures.

yeah I guess spending that 60 seconds calling ahead to see if they are open would have been a waste of time....

That's just stupid. What's next, the party clown because its essential to keep kids entertained? Either forget about it or actually go by essential which should mean jobs related to life, health and safety. Such things like keeping the food supply going (grocery stores, factories which process food). Hospitals and their suppliers. Police and military. Plumbing is essential yes to a certain degree because people need functioning indoor plumbing for health reasons but maybe the construction side is not essential in a time like this. So either essential in times of emergency or not.

They put out some hamburger while I was there the other day. I waited patiently while the guy in front of me took his. The idiot starts picking up them up, looking at them and putting them back, just like a foolish woman who doesn't know what she wants and can't make a decision. They are all exactly the same, from the same batch, within a few ounces of each other, same price per pound. I finally ask the idiot if he's going to touch every single one, and just to be a smart ass he starts touching them all. I realize that his teenage son is standing by, so I backed off, for the kid's sake. It's not cool to berate someone's dad, even if he is a moron.

My kids go to a private school too, but our diocese follows the public school superintendent's policies almost lockstep. So far there has been no mention in our state of the online schooling not counting. If that's the case why bother?

We have already told the teacher that we won't be doing Spanish, since neither of us speak it and can't get all the pronunciation down right. Yes there are online sources that tell you, but we're still figuring out how to do it all online in English, so we're just going to have to be bad hombres for now.

Leave it to MI to close schools and require online, but then say it doesn't count. How do they think they're going to get the kids in Deetroit in school in summer? They can't even get them there during the regular school year.

Our supply houses are closing counters too, and having us pick up orders at the door. That's OK for most stuff, but a PITA when you need an unexpected fitting or something to finish a job. Must remember to add a little more time on to quotes to compensate.
