    USA still the best. But getting worse!
    I'm paying exorbitant prices for food staples delivery. In the near future I hope to be able to berate myself for foolishly paying these prices. But I don't feel foolish at all right now.

    Ya'all please stay & keep others safe.

    Not for the upper class. But if it goes on too long, everything but, even for the children and their children.

    As far as the U.S. is concerned:
    In other words if the product is currently stocked, you will get it via home delivery.

    BTW - has anyone been able to find toilet paper anywhere?:mad:

    I lined up an hour early yesterday at Costco and was able to buy a 40 pack. They actually had lots and limited one/customer. BTW, I'm anticipating a lockdown in Canada very soon.

    Thank God this virus is only 10 times more deadly than the flu, yes, still small compared to some pandemics of the past and hopefully much smaller once the vaccine is developed (I relish buying the stock in THAT company). Can you imagine what we would be dealing with a fatality rate of Cholera or the Plague in the Middle Ages if this were just as deadly? Modern health science: keep on keeping on, this one blind sided you but I have faith in you.

    This thread is drifting further and further off topic. Time to stop.

    I noticed that this morning when searching for antivirus software. They have removed 99% of the listings.

    It's difficult to know who or what to believe anymore. There are so many lies and false stories being put out . People have seemed to adjust that it's ok promote conspiracies and lies.
