Don't come here often as I get no pleasure in debating over what seems clear to me but unfathomable to the sentiments (sediments?) expressed by the three regulars on the forum.
Not even baseball, where we had some commonality, to attract me.

Anyway. I have been sharing this song widely and it is something that I hope even those with whom I do not share a lot might enjoy.

Stay the

Song's good tho.

mike,
Not indignant. Although I did make a joke, I just said that there is little or nothing to discuss as we are so far apart.
You disagree?
And going into defensive mode, you used to credit me with not taking knee jerk positions. Left, of course, but open.
But the purpose of this post is not to get into a name calling debate or personal characterizations.

Here's something to make you happy. Although I hate his positions on almost all issues, I actually think that our conservative Republican governor, Mike DeWine, has been doing a brilliant job in this crisis.
To the point that I am flying a large American flag from my porch, at his suggestion, as a symbol of solidarity that Ohioans are all in this together.
As are we all.

As a suggestion, without giving opinions as to the correctness or intelligence of anything expressed by anyone in politics, it might be interesting to hear how people are doing personally.
I see that BB & mzp have been doing a little of that. Plus personal tp access news.
I contacted a long time friend who I first met here (no longer active) and we have been sharing family stories.

And Hi! to you BB.

Pogo, I thought you were taking a swipe at me. Sorry. You and I disagree, but we've never gotten into name-calling or other insults. Same w/BB and DB. Think I'll contact DB) I've known them for over 20 years and we've never once gotten personal over politics.It is futile, anyway, as you know.I wish the others had been that way.

COVID is our mortal enemy, regardless of politics..But too many people are trying to use it to score political points. And as for the mainline media and some fools in Hollywood...

Starting a few seedlings indoors ad will set out in about a month. I think it's wise to grow some of our own stuff. Or, maybe Basebawl can fly in a planeload of veggies for each of us.

I'm told that Hopkins is THE place in Md. for COVID treatment.They've been gearing up for months. That's where I'd go if things get bad.

Hopkins is the man. Up here, it's Penn State Hershey. Daughter etc. picked up 250 ghost pepper plants today. The greenhouse is set up to pot them. Every pot has its own little water spout. Plus there's an overhead sprinkler. These dudes are scientists. There are another 1500 or so coming later to plant outside. That's more bute force irrigation. Pretty sure we're using strip tapes. We took the mower deck off their tractor, to make it easier to manipulate in the barn. Everybody sweating bullets about trying to reattach it. Kioti doesn't do drive ons. I doubt we ever take the SOB off again.

Today, I planted spinach and peas. Very late for the peas, but I just can't get into it right now. I'll put in tomatoes later, and that's it.

Hey, pogo, glad to see you. Come by more often.

Tell your friend to stop and say hi.

We haven't been impacted much by the shutdown, thankfully. We're well, except for what age does. My knees bother me occasionally; my wife's hip bothers her sometimes. I find myself having to pull myself up, but that was happening before this thing came along.

There is tape on the floor at Dollar Tree marking off 6 feet, but otherwise, most of the places we go are running semi-normally. We went and picked up a pizza last night.

I do think we're likely to see less impact than some are anticipating, and I am concerned about the economy. it can't stay like this indefinitely. However, I am glad to see our leaders practicing federalism for a change. The conditions in Maryland are different from those in Ohio, New York, California, Louisiana, or Washington. They need different approaches. And DC is making sure everybody has what they need.

I'd like to get the country back to somewhat normal soon. Open where possible, closed where necessary.
