I'm just saying, this thing has everyone nervous. I'm in his boat, exactly.

Not sure how I could have gotten it, but damned if I don't think I do.
Im way better then I was last night, I had a pretty bad headache last night I couldn't even sleep. Its amazing what little things can do like tylenol, massaging your forehead practicing slow breathing and nice weather today does wonders. Im pretty sure I was dehydrated, I know you have all heard this before but its really important you drink plenty of water and exercise and eat healthy during this time period. Its good to be vigilant but also stress free as well, as much as you can anyways.

Just found out I was exposed on 3/16. Still no symptoms so I think I'm ok. Have been home since the 17th.

my wife is almost 8 months pregnant and a nurse in Hartford so it’s been scary to say the least. She was finally able to get moved to a non-covid area so we are happy about that. It was like pulling teeth to get her moved, I’m shocked they weren’t being very accommodating to a pregnant nurse but not surprised during difficult times when healthcare professionals are too scarce in our country for an epidemic (way better than most though). I am trying to stay very positive and healthy during these times. Can’t wait for my baby to get here in person. When I show him Gampel I will try and get a picture impersonating Rafiki holding up Simba in lion king. Lol

I’m very sorry for your loss. Take care of yourself.

Today I realized the same side of my refrigerator door had four opened bottles of Frank's Original hot sauce, one bottle of Frank's Hot Wing sauce and a bottle of Sweet Baby Ray's Wing Sauce. Seemed like overkill
So I’m guessing your plan is to make your digestive track inhospitable to the virus?

Sounds like you should check the other side as well.

The only one I use is the Sweet Baby Ray's wing sauce. My wife says she only uses the Frank's wing sauce which leaves our daughter as the sole reason for why multiple 3/4 full bottle of Frank's original are open. She makes a mean buffalo chicken dip but I guess isn't much for checking existing fridge stock before going to the pantry.

So yesterday I saw motorcycle go down one side of a street with a median the wrong way. He then did a u turn so he was facing the right direction, went through a red light, and did a wheelie for the next block. He didn't have a helmet, but he did have a surgical mask on. Its good to see people behaving responsibly and taking corona virus seriously.

I use Frank's red hot to clear my sinuses up whenever I have a cold. Two tablespoons clears me right up. Cayenne pepper is a natural medicine. I live on the stuff.

Cayenne pepper
This hot pepper, and spice, contains capsaicin. Studies show this compound can help clear sinuses. ... One year later, Capsaicin is shown to relieve inflammation, open up nasal passages, and enhance immunity.

I use a lot of Cayenne pepper as well. I also include Turmeric and ginger in my smoothies. Ginger contains gingerol which is a natural oil which suppresses viral infections. Ginger became hard to find in my local supermarket with the pandemic.

So my softball league that usually runs mid-April thru early-August has officially been postponed and shortened to late-June through late-August.

I’m actually really excited there’s a plan in place and the town is dedicated to getting the games in. After losing the spring to social distancing I kind of already resigned to the fact this league wasn’t going to happen. I now have something to look forward to!

A summer without getting away for a few hours a night per week to relive past athletic glory and drink beers with my buddies is not a summer my fragile mental state could handle right now.

Yeah my season is delayed to mid June and will likely include lots of double headers. Which I don't mind at all

These totals are updated daily. There is a real time meter but its too depressing to post.

CT stats: Linky

USA: Linky

World: Linky
Bno looks to be way behind on recovery data. Worldometers has USA at 1800+ recoveries. Deaths and cases are obviously going crazy right now but it’s good to start seeing a fair amount of recoveries lately too.

It’s late March. Sounds like allergies my man

100% correct.

Tis the season of disciplined preventative allergy rhythms. I wake up, take my allergy meds, do all my outside stuff in the morning/early afternoon then shower mid afternoon and work the neti pot soon after that.

Keep the windows closed, don't wear clothes I've worn outside multiple times until washed again, wash bed sheets one a week, the usual stuff.
