Re: COVID-19 Thread

Talked to my buddy from the local mc this morning. He told me they tried to remove them from a highway filling station because there was about a dozen of them standing close together. As vp he cancelled all group rides for the coming weeks because "all bars are closed". :) MC - Motorcycle Club if a...

Re: "Daily COVID-19 SITREP In Your Area"

They're limiting cereal purchases at HEB now. The guy in front of me was apparently a bit miffed that he was over the limit.

Re: "Daily COVID-19 SITREP In Your Area"

Schools are cancelled for the next 2 weeks.

I did NOT buy enough wine for this.

Does that count as a prep fail? :lol:

Re: "Daily COVID-19 SITREP In Your Area"

HEB (a huge Texas grocery store) is immediately changing the hours of all their stores to 8am-8pm to allow time for restocking.

Natural Grocers is now closing all their stores at 7:35 pm to pretty much the same reasons, thought I think they mentioned extra cleaning.

Re: Wuhan Coronavirus Thread

I'd argue that it is probably time that this thread should drop the "Wuhan" portion of the title. :cry: Not just that it has reached a global scale, but while "what was the catalyst for this outbreak" will undoubtedly be a question for the history books to analyze, we should still avoid stigmatizin...

Re: Wuhan Coronavirus Thread

It crossed my mind that if the crematoriums were running 24/7 as has been alluded, due to the large amount of people killed by this virus. Wouldn't our spy satellites have picked up these heat blooms? And if so , then our government is complicit with China over the severity of the problem. My first...

Re: Living in a van, down by the river...

Biggest drawback for me was the headroom. You end up having to crawl around all the time, and trying to change clothes like that is annoying. Not bad for a short vacation, but I wouldn't want to live that way. I need enough room to stand up! The same would go for a teardrop style camper, which is p...

Re: Living in a van, down by the river...

Anyway, this week I finally retired my faithful 1995 Sidekick and picked up a Kia Soul for a around town auto. In looking for cargo mats, I was surprised to find dozens of videos on how to convert this sub-compact into a 'camper'. I am slightly disturbed by the idea of turning a Kia Soul into a cam...

Re: Lentils

You can also use them to stretch your current provisions.

I used to mix cooked ground beef with lentils half and half and use that as my base for spaghetti meat and taco meat.

Re: Half of millennials and 75% of Gen Zers have left their job for mental health reasons

By the way, if you expect your office manager to watch your holy terror of a 2-year-old. IMO Unless it is a dire & unusual emergency, being asked to do that is legitimate grounds to say "F this! I am so out of here" and quit without 2 weeks notice. Well, to be fair, it was dire and unusual for that...

Re: Half of millennials and 75% of Gen Zers have left their job for mental health reasons

Leaving your job for mental health reasons does not equal mental illness. I know more than a few people who have left their job in order to maintain good mental health. I'm pretty certain that my job that I left because of my "attitude" would count under this one. By the way, if you expect your off...
