  1. Are you patronizing your local restaurants?  We had Fratelli's last night and a few days before we had Pizza Hut.  Both were take out of course.

      And supporting local delivery drivers, like yours truly, is also an Awesome idea!  Be safe everyone!

      Belated thank you, all three of you. I honestly didn't see this status update. Perhaps it had worked better if you used the tagging function in the forum.

  3. How long do you think this virus has been among us?  It didn't just pop up out of nowhere two weeks ago.

      In the states at least November of 2019. Just learned my buddy had it last December.

      Mid-to late November 2019, depending on whose story you believe. It only became newsworthy when the China outbreak happened.

      Man made in the U.S., project shutdown, China took it over and let it loose.

  4. Anyone else having trouble with status updates?  Mine won't work and then suddenly it will work. Surprised if this gets through.

      Yes, I've witnessed that sometimes the box doesn't load, probably hiccups.

      No problem for me so far.

  5. Maryland is closing everything starting 5pm today.  Essentials like pharmacies, grocery stores, gas stations, mail, and banks will remain open.

      Till they close too.

       

  6. I went to the Walmart for regular weekly trip and they still had most of what I wanted.  I was surprised to see the canned food aisle was still there.

      Walks into walmart, looks at water, long life food, and toilet paper, takes toilet paper

      Around here, pizza and other frozen convenience foods were the first things to sell out. Besides toilet paper and hand sanitizer that is. Plenty of fruits, veggies and vitamin supplements on the shelves still. ;) 

  7. Well, the stock market came "roaring" back yesterday.

  8. The local Walmart is completely out of TP.  I wonder if people have wiped out the dollar stores too.

      Yeah people need to buy lots of TP for all that CRAP that's online...

      I watched some dingbat pay gas station prices for 6 four packs of Charmin TP tonight. I couldn't help but shake my head and laugh.

      In 2001, they lined up at gas stations like the 1970's gas crisis.  TP is 2020's version of gas.  All the stores around here are out of TP.

  9. Once the idiots quit selling off in the stock market, it will be a good time to buy while everything is undervalued.

      I just invest in a mutual fund, so I don't think I can do much more than put extra money as a one time influx towards shares of whatever the mutual fund stocks are. I don't really look into it too much, but I know I'm in the high risk high reward zone. I don't have the kind of money to bother any other way.

      I think it's the rich people selling off.

  10. March "Madness" will go on but without fans in the stands.   That's going to be eerie.

      I read somewhere the reasons why people panic and hoard something like TP during an ongoing or pending disasters. Surprisingly, walking around with dirty butt wasn't one of them.

      I think they are worried about the athletes, because it's well known that the Olympics, summer or winter, is one gigantic sex orgy between all the athletes. Lindsey Vonn admitted it.

      You're right SSG.  Just hoping it will be contained by then or sooner.

      Thanks for the kind words all.   For the most part she was a sweet dog and she was socialized, which is why

      I don't understand the attack.

  17. At the beginning of winter one of our meteorologists gave a prediction for snowfall totals.  We are supposed to get 37 to 50 inches.  So far we've gotten 4 inches.  I don't think we will get what was predicted. :D

    1. atari2600land

      atari2600land

      Better than 0.0 inches.

  19. This winter reminds me of the winter of '98.  We only got 1/10th of an inch of snow.

      You can take some of our torrential downpour....I need a canoe to get to my driveway

  20. What's a reasonable price to pay for a heavy sixer?  I checked eBay and they are all over $100.

    1. masschamber

      masschamber

      If you don't care about the cx 10 controllers and grey psu I can sell you a heavy sixer with 2 cx 40s and a normal ac adapter for way than that, pm me if you are interested

    2. bluejay

      bluejay

      They can't be over a hundred! Heavy Sixer prices musta gone up. Exactly 370 days ago, I paid $70 for mine plus 1 CX10 and on CX40 with a Donkey Kong cartridge.

      Check this out:

      I totally vouch for masschamber as a seller if you do want a Heavy Sixer.  He'll treat you right and you won't have to pay ebay prices.

  21. Odd weather:  Barely missed getting hit by a severe thunderstorm yesterday morning and this morning woke up to 1/2 an inch of snow.

      Ehh we just got 1" dusting. If we're gonna have snow let's get it in style. A 30" blizzard please thankyouverymuch.

  23. It's 60 F right now.   Supposed to rain all week.  We've only gotten about 3 or 4 inches of snow all season so far.

      We got almost that much last night!   And pretty cold temps (9 degrees F) ...Not really looking forward to work today...

  24. Punxsutawney Phil didn't see his shadow, predicts early spring. 

    1. Stephen

      Stephen

      Well, 56 and sunny here today.  Only the second day this decade that the sun has been out and average temp for today should be 32.  Hopefully the little guy was correct.

      And for those of us who don't get our weather forecast from woodchucks, the mildest January on record was a decent predictor of what's to come.

      Dang woodchucks! Quit chuckin' my wood!

  25. What a winter.  50's and 60's next week with rain.  I guess it's better than the "polar vortex".   But I'm a snow lover and would like it to be in the upper 20's with snow.
