When you get tired of talking about the virus to your family please post something. I have no emails, text, or posts to read or reply. Internet congestion is making streaming spotty. 

I thought with most at home with little to do that the forums would be busy and youtube would be posting vids. It been the opposite. The silence is deafening....

Several non essential meme creation sites have been asked to shut down but refused.

Humor.

I was talking to a buddy who lives just north of Daytona Beach. We talked about the beach closures that didn't slow down any of the spring break college students. Then he asked about toilet paper levels. He buys everything in bulk and is a bit low as he only has a 6 month supply. He usually keeps a year supply of consumables and food. My reply back was that I had moved a mirror to shower so I could do the "Sh#t, Shower, Shave" all at the same time.

I'm still working, we are an 'essential business' due to defense work that we do.  In fact, they offered up all the OT anybody wants.  I won't be working any.  four tens, my grandson two other days, leaves one day a week.

No work, no shopping, staying home, on the interest but a little slow.
Had friends over from New England, they flew out before the shut Down in Cali.

I almost didn't want to let them in because they had been in San Diego for a couple of days but let it happen, can't stop it if it is meant to be !

There that that the Wife and I are ok for now !

Thinking of shopping for food tomorrow at 7AM.

Dang eddie pictures like that on this screen will get me slapped by my gorgeous beautiful loving wife!! I closed my eyes and scrolled it off the screen quickly :) You single dudes are trouble! LOL


Been spending time with the family, spent the morning doing long division w my son, successful homeschool day #5. 
3 kids, 8. 10 and 11
My wife has been handling all their curriculum coordinating with the teachers, etc 
I'm the math teacher and principal
So far its actually alot of fun. The kids say we have a better playground then the school!
Long division I can handle, I do math everyday. Eddie Money was saying something about having to divide paradactyles or some crap...I made it through advanced algebra in High School and some Calculus and I never remember any of that! Sounds like a dinosaur?!?! Maybe hes just messing with me :)
Anyways we got our supplies, another $350 at the wal mart today, weekly trip to town to get supplies, everyone pretty much staying 6' away from each other but very polite. 
Picked up a new 3 bolt gear reduction starter (rock auto delivery) for my 97 F350 7.3 truck, the starter failed on me twice in the last month, once in the middle of the dump, and once at the gas station! So embarrassing! Its a stick so we were able to pop the clutch and fire her up. Looking forward to installing that starter, I love my flatbed turbo diesel F350 and she has been snowed in all winter
The v8 truck is sold, but I have a few things to tidy up before delivery, including a new windshield tomorrow. Still doing our part to stimulate the economy. Glass place still open....for now.
The v6 truck is running well but is giving me a Po1451 code....Evac system issue, on rangers i hear sometimes its in the wiring near the fuel tank. My plan is to remove the canister purge and canister vent solenoids, ohm each one. Then test the wiring between them. Once this code is gone the v6 truck will get detail and posted up for sale!
Next onto Eddies 07 Ranger again...we have a clear direction for the front suspension, gears, lockers and parts...so I have begun to order the next round of goodies :)
Of course the FJ cruiser needs tires this summer and I have some new Metal Tech rear UCA to install, help correct her rear suspension geometry from running so much lift :)
I have more parts to install on the F350, all new front brakes, since I caught them on fire last summer hauling brick with my neighbor the front brakes have been "touchy"
The bulldozer has two leaking hydraulic rams, one is squirting fluid like a fountain so I have to remove those and take them in to get rebuilt
We are adding onto our house this summer, I have been drawing up plans for that....should be interesting a 2 story addition. Once all the snow is gone I will start digging the holes for that (pole building)
the excavator is now melted out (no more snow around it) I plan to fire her up for the first time since winterize and start putting in some culverts on our road, there are about 6 spots that need ditches, culverts so the water does not wash our road away.
the Excursion has 220K miles on it now and shes been used hard (16 one way trips hauling heavy trailers from CO to ID just to give a clue) the turbo needs rebuilt and the injectors need to be re ringed. Put that on the to do list for this summer also
The van has a rusty body and the bondo is starting to fall off...so the search for a replacement body is on.... I plan to do a 4x4 conversion at the same time as a frame/body swap....should be interesting, please send $$$$. 2001 E350 7.3 going dana 50 ttb 4x4 
I also have a 1978 Argo 6x6 and trailer project I have been meaning to get to.......we shall see about that. Might get set aside for another year...
There maybe that daily blog will hold you over for a bit @Eddiemoney , welcome to my "la vida loca"
Hang in there everyone. China is lifting their lock down on April 8? have faith this thing will blow over quickly...especially if we all do our part. 
I am still running around town doing errands and such but I am very careful, wipe down anything your gonna touch, don't touch anything you don't need to, don't touch your face, keep your distance and be courteous. And for heavens sake if you have pre existing conditions, feel any sort of fever or shortness of breath, have somebody else run the errands!!
The family is playing zombies together right now, COD Infinite warfare....it has been a while since we all sat down together and did that! Some good can come out of the bad !!!

Apologies.....Lol. Fixed it.🤪

Thanks everyone!!!
And 410customs, much appreciated!!! 
Factoring polynomials is just algebra. I'll admit I've forgotten most of my algebra.🤯 I started working full time before I could finish highschool. Highest math I learned was geometry, side opposite, side adjacent and the hypotenuse....I liked math. I'm sure I would have enjoyed calculus.

Meanwhile.....
While the rest of the planet shelters at home, I worry about bringing the virus home to my mother who is at the age of risk by an incidental touch because I'm am classified an essential worker.

We have  made our own decontamination protocols for bringing items into the house and for when I return to the house from work. 

Being lucky to have work has probably keep me from going crazy around the house.

Though i'm gonna need a good vacation after this......hmmm maybe a cruise. Kidding

To be honest, life hasn't changed that much for me - I can still get out to walk the dogs though I visit the store less frequently.

Being retired means I don't have to worry about work or money, I just don't get to go over to Italy to ride my horse but she is well looked after out there - I am just saving my pennies for when this is over and we can go and spend some time out there, instead of 6 one week visits it will have to be one six week visit!

I was a complete idiot from ages 16 to 38 so I will worry about money till the day I die. 


My entire state has gone insane over this thing so even though by some fluke I'm still employed and wife is also just about everything else has changed.


I'm careful enough to not order the rare pangolin marinated in bat excrements at the Chinese carry out. Didn't care much for it any way.

Gf and I work on a farm (She handles the nursery and I'm the mechanic) and we've been "self-isolated" for long before this started so life hasn't changed much.

All the sanitation procedures at worj are really tedious but hey...
Like wiping down each tool before and after each use

Bought a bit more supplies all the way in the beginning of this thing, before all the panicbuying, we didn't buy TP though and now there's none to be found anywhere. Its ok still have plenty.

Roads are empty, not that we have much traffic.
Gas is .83 CAD a liter !! :rock

I hope everyone has a good hobby they can do at home... (this means you Eddie!) For when the work stops, there are things we can do so we are not always so dependent on such a fragile system.
My step daughter has been spending her days off making protective masks at home.
It was nice to have some elevators to draw yesterday, elevator work is usually slow in the winter months and picks back up in spring. This spring has been slow, so when a job does come around I am very happy to do it. Oddly enough I have been doing many many hospitals in the last two years, some major hospitals being built in on the west coast. I also do all of the Amazon buildings, between the hospitals, Amazon and my fathers international projects we have enough work to keep the machine moving.....
Getting ready to take the v8 in for its new glass, I gotta tell you I do not mind parading that thing around town....she is loaded up on the trailer behind the excursion and its a damn fine looking setup!
This is a great thread, we have a nice group of folks going on here....it is awesome to see all the different people and the things they do, America the melting pot!! just now with a 6' social distancing rule......

It's been comforting a soothing reading and replying to this thread. Thank you. Dont stop. Say anything...

And Yes, I have projects I've been holding off doing. Some because they will only deplete my savings. I'm trying to avoid improving my mothers house because I need one myself and if I keep paying for her upgrades I'll never be able to have a house of my own. 

I have a bunch of copper and brass to sort and conduit to strip. I've been putting it off because the trade wars. I'm hoping china starts another big project so copper goes back up to $10lb. I've saved every piece of copper flashing, wiring from the remodel, aluminum window frames and lots of brass sink parts. I saved it to offset my remodel expenses. 

All the other things to do require a machine. Being a brick mason has destroyed my arms from wrist to shoulder. So no shovels for me or I'll be crippled. 

I spent the last 10 years or so getting everything caught up and upgraded or updated before I started on the ranger. I'm in a good place to explore my interests and once the truck is completed I'll begin building some closets in the garage to empty my storage. Then I'm off to find a cabin in the woods to enjoy on the weekends and retire to later.

Well, after another day's worth of logging and burning all the offcuts, twigs etc in the barbecue it seemed only right to do a couple of burgers on it :-)

NJ is supposed to be on lockdown with only essential businesses open. Unfortunately we both work for essential businesses (wife - Home Depot, me - Lowes) & even though we both work in merchandising we are still considered essential. The disturbing thing we both see daily are these idiots with their kids shopping for things they can do without just because they do not want to sit at home. Isn't that why the schools & most businesses are closed to try & stop the spread of the virus?, not so these idiots can take their kids out shopping? We leave the house to go to work & go shopping for essential stuff once a week, other then that we are home. Watch T.V. play a board game but stay home please. Rant over.

My mom works at the hospital and she was getting calls from people saying " well I'm over 60 so I think I should get tested." No fever, sore throat... they are just curious. Lol

Last week they told washingtonians that the beaches and parks are open for people who have been cooped up but to not gather in crowds and keep a social distance. I guess they thought it meant go have a picnic with you friends and family at the park. Doe...

Driving buy these parks I see teenagers at bus stops inches from each others faces preparing to kiss. Couples jogging with hands all over each other like they needed a hotel...People exercising and stretching in groups like it was all clear. 

Then monday the governor said stay home you fools...

That works out to $2.38 ?? a US gallon. He in the Atlanta area it is going for $1.53.  It will go down further before it heads back up.

The mayor of the city of Atlanta has issued a "shelter-in-place" except for critical workers late last night. I drive a school bus and we are delivering the "free lunches" for the Title 1 kids in the system. I stopped counting the RV's headed towards the mountains when I hit 30 on my delivery going up I985. I was only on I985 for a little over 4 miles. I am governed at 58mph and they were blowing by at 70+.  Every last one had a metro tag. So much for shelter in place but haul butt to the mountains...

I remember Canada being horrible on fuel, I worked in Detroit for a while and would actually go to Windsor for lunch back before you had to have passports and crap. It was like 3 times what we were paying for it back then.

You would hate it here then - gas is the equivalent of $5.45 a US gallon and diesel is $5.90 at current exchange rates.

Yeah but 2.38$ canadian is 1.62USD
So not that much more than Atlanta which imo is amazing.
Considering it was over 1.20/liter(canadian)just weeks ago I'm pretty happy.

I don't keep up on the exchange rate any more, I've seen it way on the good side and way on the bad side. Plus they make going to Canada now like you are going to another country huh imagine that.

No where near Detroit any more either. Thank God.

Oh come on you know you want to go be in Detroit some more!!
My neighbor and wrenching buddy is originally from Detroit....Rockford area, I get to hear all about it, I'm like hell no. That would have been great back in the hay day.....not anymore.

its funny my brother lives in Hollywood, loves So Cal.... bring him up here to North Idaho back in the wood and just the ride to the house has him freaked out. He says stuff like "how do you order food" and "what if you need batteries", "where is the nearest Uber" like a fish out of water...
Then you take me to Hollywood and I'm like freaking out just one traffic jam and my nerves are wrecked, like a fish out of water....
He is an "urbanite" I am a "ruralite" my mom says
