Yep. Oregon bars and diners only drive thru now thanks to Nate Brown. Stupidity is very normal now. Working the guys as long as the customers have work for us. Then we will see what happens. I could use a little time away, but work helps keep my mind off the crazy people. Full freezers with 6 beef on the hoof. Will butcher if needed, a few hundred gallons of diesel in the tanks. Gonna get worse before it gets better, I reckon.

I think my guys at work had it back in November/December. Shortness of breath, tired, headaches, little bit of fever but not really flu like and no one seemed to know what it was. And it seemed like it lasted forever, well over a week for sure. People were getting checked for the flu and it wasnt the flu, but they didnít know what to check for at the time until they tested for it on someone in China. Im not one of the conspiracy theorists but thereís something going on here thatís being hidden from the general public as there usually is when the media pushes on a topic so hard. It really doesnít make sense for there to be this much panic over something that could be handled with a bit of common sense, meaning you feel like youíre getting sick you stay you azz at home, go to a doctor and see whatís going on with you, then get you azz back home. The mass hysteria of this is making every day life impossible for people who canít just drop everything and run to the store in the middle of the day to stock up on supplies. Personally I donít rely on stores for everything to keep myself alive and comfortable but they sure do make it easier.

I work in a water treatment plant in NM and all admin was asked to go home. Operators and maintenance are essential to producing water for our town so we have to work. Local grocery stores are somewhat empty at least on the important stuff like beans, rice and flour ect... All restaurants and bars are still serving but must only occupy 50% of capacity. Also no one is allowed to sit at the bar. At this time there are only 21 confirmed cases in NM so it hasn't hit us as hard as other states.

I promise my family wont starve as I have a honey hole and with or without the governments consent Ill bag something to feed us.

Stay safe my friends!

Haha. Periscope breathing tubes. Gonna sell them on Amazon and make millions. Use an elastic band to keep it on your head so you can stay hands free and maintain 6’ of airspace clearance.






I had planned on putting in an irrigation system around the house. Little bit at a time is better than sitting on my ass watching TV, if I’m stuck at home. I have most everything but the heads and wire now.

Make sure you put a drain in somewhere. Unless you never get freezing weather.

I believe it was definitely here in November/December as I myself got pretty sick, cold chills etc..... a lot of people I know did as well.
