  1. Lots of "strange stuff" here. Why would he "pop" the hood, and then crawl under the car? He knew the problem was "under" the car, not in the engine compartment. He did something. I think he used something to "block" the gears from shifting, then simple removed it, and you were on your way. 350 is a cheap lesson for you.
  2. Enforcement is the problem, as some over 65 think they are "invincible", so they will go out. By now anyone with common sense should know who the high risk are and therefore , if they fall into that category, take extra measures to protect themselves. My responsibility is to provide for myself and my family, not you and yours. We are not all in this together, nor are we in the same boat.
  3. Now you are really paying attention! You will discover there is a lot more of that out there.
  4. Found this post for NOB. Thought it might offer something here. You decide for yourself. I saw on the NBC "news" tonight that IF they open the schools in the fall, there would only be 12 students per classroom and the buses would run at 1/8 the capacity. NOT BELIEVING EVERYTHING I HEAR, I did some research of my own to find out the number of coronavirus deaths there have been in each age group. The results I found were ridiculously LOW in the age group 0-24. (I'm a nerd--I made a spreadsheet.) The narrative that schools will have to be closed or operated very differently (social distancing, masks, online learning, etc.), is completely unjustified. Think about what FURTHER financial effects this would have on families where both parents work (and don't have jobs where they can work from home). Is one parent going to be forced to quit their job in order to transport their child to/from school during staggered hours/days AND in order to teach their children at home on a part-time basis? If both parents continue to work and the child(ren) go to daycare when they are not in school, how will they pay for such a large expense? If children receive free breakfast and lunch at school because of the family's low income, what is their risk of going hungry at home? If young students don't have the internet at home, will they be able to do their school work or will they have have to wait until their parent gets home to use their cell phone? What about sports? What about extra curricular activities? Life needs to return to NORMAL for all of us, especially for children and teens. Last but not least--WHY are they making this decision in MAY??!!

  5. If you sneeze and have the virus, how does your mask help protect others from your sneeze ?

  7. Dropped the total by nearly 300. That is a significant drop.
  8. Nearly a quarter of the people Colorado said died from coronavirus don’t have COVID-19 on their death certificate The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment announced a change to how it tallies coronavirus deaths amid complaints that it inflated numbers
  9. https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2020/05/mexico-president-orders-military-streets-years-200512031731401.html The decision means soldiers will be on Mexican streets until almost the end of the presidency of Lopez Obrador, a political veteran who came to power in December 2018. He had often criticised former President Felipe Calderon for deploying soldiers and sailors, beginning in 2006, for public security and to fight drug violence. Juan Ibarrola, a security specialist, said Monday's notice was a sign Lopez Obrador's "security strategy is not working". "That is why he has had to order with this decree for the armed forces to support public security," Ibarrola told the Milenio newspaper. Lopez Obrador, also known as AMLO, won office vowing to adopt a more conciliatory security strategy focused on the root causes of crime, in particular by reducing poverty and corruption. But the violence has continued during his first year and a half in charge, with a record 34,582 people murdered in 2019. Some 3,000 homicides were recorded in March this year, the second-biggest number of monthly murders ever and the highest since Lopez Obrador assumed power.
  10. https://noticaribe.com.mx/2020/05/15/amlo-minimiza-la-violencia-de-genero-cndh-advierte-alza-en-feminicidios/ Given the figures, López Obrador said that he knows the data "well" and that "not because of the withdrawal to the homes there has been more violence" in Mexico, because families are used to "a harmonious coexistence." “It is that the Mexican family is different from the family in Europe or in the United States. We are used to living together, being together, "he assured. The president even showed the homicide figures registered this Thursday across the country, a graph where of 84 murdered only 7 were women. “We are going to continue defending, protecting, women. Without being feminists, we are humanists ”, repeated the president.
  11. Shame on you for standing up for your rights and freedom, right? Shame, shame, shame on you !
  12. Indeed it is very eye opening. Know very little about Sweden, but from what I have heard, much is dispelled by this writer. Not the mecca of freedom that lots of people claim. Thanks, Pappy.
  13. Yes, some governors took a long time to make decisions. Since the virus is not just "going away" because of the "lock down", governors of states need to decide if they are now ready to handle the seriously ill in their hospitals, that they will get when things do open back up. Hopefully, they know a lot more about preventing death than before. Fortunately, every day it appears that more and more of the cases are not serious and more people are not needing hospitalization. People with underlying illnesses need to continue to be extra careful for, sadly, a long time, until a vaccine is ready. Healthy people appear to ride this out more like a light flu.
  14. Do you know this person? How do you know he has not been legal? Thanks.
