    MI - Zyaire, 1, killed; Zion, 1, twin, injured; Ecorse, July 2020 *mother & boyfriend arrested*

    From the article: . . . Both children had severe injuries to the lips, ears and broken blood vessels in the eyes. The inspector said Zion has a broken left femur. “It’s not fractured, it’s broken,” he stressed. . . . Did he bite them? I remember a drug called Flakka that induces people to...

    The surviving children will be eligible for Social Security Survivors Benefits. It will be a great help, but they are going to need a lot of community support.

    Grocery shopping tips during Coronavirus quarantine #2

    IMO, it will last several days. If your elec goes out, throw a heavy blanket or rug over it. More insulation. Mine also has frozen water.

    Grocery shopping tips during Coronavirus quarantine #2

    Just go back from my neighborhood Walmart. Produce and meat were in good supply. I bought more meat than I typically would. I plan to slowly fill up my freezer. I'm going to discuss with DH finding a local rancher to buy 1/4 of beef. There are cattle all over central FL, so it should be...

    Coronavirus COVID-19 - Global Health Pandemic #51

    We have a PSA ticker on our TV. I have to laugh when it recommends sanitizing 'frequently used surfaces, like doorknobs'. My doorknob no longer qualifies as a frequently used item.:oops:

    Won't that skew the CoVid deaths? If you are in hospice, and died with CoVid, did you really die from CoVid?

    This is going to be simplistic. When you SCUBA dive, the pressure on your body increases every 33 1/3 feet of depth. This is one Atmosphere. The deeper you go, the more pressure on your body, and the slower your blood gasses are off-gassed. The gasses stay in your blood longer. That's why...

    Quarantine Vegetable Gardens

    I used to grow Daffs. Climate in Florida doesn't work for them. After the flower withers, dead head it. Let the leaves dies back naturally ~ they are feeding the roots. It's OK to twist the leaves up if they are messy looking. After the leaves are dead, you can dig them up and store them in a...

    We do get snowbirds. Some of them own homes, others rent to 1 - 3 months. Short term visitors are few and usually family members who are not looking to party, just relax and let grandma and grandpa spoil the kids. Your theory makes perfect sense.

    Coronavirus COVID-19 - Global Health Pandemic #49

    RSBM A few days ago I was wondering why folks in the 90's and even 100's were recovering from this. I was speculating decades of exposure to various coronavirus may have 'taught' their bodies to fight back. I'd love to hear what people who know what they are talking about think. I'm just a...

    Thank you for a new word! I'm just sorry it describes such poverty and miserable living conditions.

    RSBM The first difference I see is housing density. There is only one apartment complex in The Villages proper, and it isn't finished yet. The vast majority are single family homes. There are a number of assisted living and memory care facilities. A few cases there. Almost all buildings are...

    The Villages is not in Broward County. Most of The Villages is in Sumter County, extending into Lake and Marion Counties. It is where I live, which some posters have no doubt guessed. We are doing quite well. I believe we have fewer than 114 cases, with a population of @ 120,000. Our regional...

    Coronavirus COVID-19 - Global Health Pandemic #49

    Oh my goodness. I just had a flashback ~ many years ago a woman I worked with had a terrible, endless runny nose cold. She also had a wild sense of humor. She stuck a tampon in each nostril. I glanced over to see her, with two strings hanging down her face. Thought I would bust a gut. :D

    I was repeatedly exposed to mumps, through the mom network of Your cousin is sick, we're all going over habit of the times. Never caught the mumps, until I was 14 years old. I was sick as a dog. I lost days laying in bed.

    For me, it is getting too easy. I am also an introvert, and have social anxiety. I take a small Xanax to go bowling!:eek: I've been working hard on dealing with it, making progress ~ but now I'm backsliding. Told DH I'll have agoraphobia before we're done with this.

    Grocery shopping tips during Coronavirus quarantine

    I don't use boxed rice or pasta very often, but when I do I use unsalted butter to keep the salt down. I think it helps. I keep a stick in the freezer, as it doesn't keep as well as salted butter.

    Coronavirus COVID-19 - Global Health Pandemic #48

    I am curious about the super seniors ~ those over 90 and even 100 ~ who have recovered. Statistically, they shouldn't have. Did their bodies know the coronavirus from decades of colds? I am amazed and grateful for their resiliency.
