    Wake up call

    The one thing I take away from this whole corona virus hype is how dependant we have become on other nations for our basic needs and this is what should scare hell out of everybody. We are the greatest nation on earth and we have China threatening to shut off our medical supply chain, which by the way they can easily do. We have allowed our politicians to sell us down the river for 30 years by being bought out by lobbyists and corporations. Wake up people. Forget the toilet paper panic. Start panicking for the very future of this country. Our eyes need to be wide open and reverse the sellout of this nation

    Support Local Businesses

    I'm a member of our local chamber of commerce, and they just sent out an email. A lot of this is common sense, but very timely, so I thought I would pass it along, help support your local small businesses during this insanity: Purchase essentials from locally owned stores: Local pharmacies, butchers, wine shops, prepared foods, etc... Patronize local restaurants: Order takeout, curbside pickup, and delivery as often as you would go out to eat (or more) Participate in innovative digital offerings: Support small businesses offering online classes and entertainment Shop remotely with local merchants: Need to buy a gift? Choose to shop online at a local store, or purchase from a store offering delivery Buy gift cards to spend later: Go above and beyond to benefit your favorite businesses Choose local vendors: It's not just hospitality and retailers who are losing out on business- select local vendors for your business needs Influence others to do the same: The more people who support local business, the stronger our economy will be I work for a huge company. The big boys will weather this, but mid size to small businesses are going to take a beating over the next few months. I'm the world's worst for ordering from Amazon, but I'm going to make a conscious effort to support my neighbors through this time

    There has got to be a charge of some type that they can give this "mother", and I use that term lightly. How do you call your child a liar in a situation like this and do nothing. Sickening.

    Sorry, PA has the highest gas tax and is notorious for having the crappiest streets. COVID19 didn't get here due to people traveling, it came straight out of a pothole that goes straight to China.

    Wake up call

    I've been complaining at GoDuBois for years that we need more factories instead of restaurants and stores(which sell mostly foreign made things). I don't care what is made as long as something is manufactured. That creates a capital gain, whereas stores/restaurants typically only recycle money with part of it being leached out to other countries or pockets of rich CEO's or shareholders elsewhere. Heck, if the greater DuBois area had a toilet paper factory right now there would be a mountain of cash being added to the area.

    Help your neighbors .

    In this time of craziness please keep a watch over the neighbors around u. Some can’t make it to the store as much as others and they need Necessities also. If it’s something as simple as a roll of tp or a little bit of milk it will help. This is the time we need to work together not against eachother. It’s going to get worse before it gets better. Let’s stand together and help eachother out. We are all Americans let’s show it. Be kind, caring and lend a helping hand. Have a great week everyone and stay safe.

    State Shuts Down Liquor Stores

    It is a crock of BS. No body drinks or socializes at the State Stores. State Stores are self-sustaining financially and add revenue to the general fund. It is counter productive to close the stores. I can almost see ordering bars/taverns/restaurants to close because of the close proximity of mixed crowds. But not closing State Stores. This has gone from a misguided attempt to limit the spread of the virus to a social reengineering of the masses. Lots more people will be broke because of not being allowed to work, so they will lose their homes, go hungry, and be dependent on the government. People dependent on their government aren't citizens, they are subjects.

    The company I work for has lost millions in stock and revenue due to businesses closing down. This week they implemented a new nationwide poilicy, not of cutting employees hours, or sending a certain number of employees home, but of once a week buying lunch for every single employee in the company and every Friday sending each employee home with a dinner for their entire family. We have been instructed to do this every week until the "all clear" is given. I'm not far enough up the chain to be saying this as a pitch for my company, I'm saying this because I have worked for a couple of other companies that would immediately turn inward, start the layoffs, and try to control the bleeding. Very early in this crisis my company took care of its employees. I was astounded. Yes, it's a big company, and it will survive this, but these are the kinds of things you just don't hear about

    WHY TOILET PAPER??

    Well I finally lost it!!!! 😡 🛒 🛑 Was just in Walmart and seen a dudes cart FULL to the brim with hand sanitizers, baby wipes, soaps, everything that people need!! I called him selfish and gave him the low down about the elderly, moms, and people who need these types of things. Told him he should be ashamed of himself! He said: “Are you done? Cause I really need to get back to restocking the shelves now!! 😂 (A little laugh to brighten the craziness)

    I ran around the block five times today until I got tired. So I picked up the block and put it back in the toy box. Did you ever step on one in the dark? Not fun.

    CV-19 Is Here!

    We all knew it was coming, just a matter of time. I hope everyone keeps staying home as much as possible and practicing good health habits and precautions. We can have less infections this way, and save some lives, too. I pray for those infected that they will have a quick recovery. I also commend the folks who work in life sustaining businesses that have to go out and work daily. And a big thank you to our doctors, nurses, caregivers, emergency workers, and truckers!

    So much for sunshine, but on the bright side, (thanks to Lupara🤭) you could eat off of my dashboard, the floors have never been cleaner and my windows are TOTALLY streak free. Even the cupholders are sparkling. 🤓 I am currently trying to psyche myself up to purge a closet....🙄🥵🥱🤥 .....yeah.....no.....maybe tomorrow....🤔 But I have mentally purged it. That counts, right? 🤭

    They are allowing the Seniors into the stores after the store has been cleaned and before the store may possibly be contaminated by a days worth of customers. Common sense rules the decision!

    Meet my granddaughter Faith Marie

    She is doing ok. Getting teeth in 1 or 2 at a time makes an unhappy Faith & mommy, but mommy puts real vanilla on her gums & makes a happy kid!! She is still having 3 therapist come to the house a week to work with her speech, muscles, & sitting/rolling/standing. All 3 ladies are wonderful with Faith, Brandi, Deryk, & the Midget. They all spend a few moments playing with big sister Midgy & her ball, lol. With this Coronavirus, they are going to be as vigilant as they were when Faith came home. This virus can easily kill Faith because of her weakened immune system.

    I-80 accident

    Not that I want anyone to be hurt but it always seem like the person causing the accident doesn't sustain life sustaining injuries but the innocent ones do. It's just not fair at all.
