  1. We must watch different shows. All I could think of was some creeper slipping through there at night and watching me sleep! Hahaha
  2. We get that as a phone voicemail at least once a week.
  3. Happy Birthday beautiful baby! 🎂❣
  4. The greatest gift you have ever received is under the tree! ❤️❤️❤️
  5. I believe that people should have the right to access this treatment. This article though is no proof of a Fauci conspiracy. The article cited a study where the drug was tested on cells in a petri dish and not any human trials.
  6. Prayers for Faith and family. Stay strong for the little one. She is loved.
  7. You can Google the title and find it. Basically, it promotes herd immunity. Protect and isolate the vulnerable, open the economy and schools normally and let the virus run its course. I don't necessarily agree with all of their ideas, but I appreciate the information.
  8. Sincere prayers and love for sweet baby Faith and her family. She is a warrior baby!
  9. Because of the deer, I grow in large pots on my porch. One was too close to the edge and the deer walked up and ate in anyhow! The others, I moved way back and now the chipmunk stripped three of all of the leaves. I have four left and, knock on wood, they are doing very well! I was disappointed to have lost both of my current tomatoes to the animals and hope that your plant sale offers them again next year!
  10. For those services, you have to wait for the "Green Supermoon"! 😉
  11. This is interesting! Ant colonies farm them! EcologyEdit Bloodroot is one of many plants whose seeds are spread by ants, a process called myrmecochory. The seeds have a fleshy organ called an elaiosome that attracts ants. The ants take the seeds to their nest, where they eat the elaiosomes, and put the seeds in their nest debris, where they are protected until they germinate. They also benefit from growing in a medium made richer by the ant nest debris. The flowers produce pollen, but no nectar. Various bees and flies visit the flowers looking in vain for nectar, for instance sweat bees in the genera Lasioglossum and Halictus, cuckoo bees in the genus Nomada, small carpenter bees (Ceratina), and bee flies in the genus Bombylius. Some bees come to collect pollen, including mining bees (Andrena), which are the most effective pollinators.[7][8] The bitter and toxic leaves and rhizomes are not often eaten by mammalian herbivores.[8]
  12. My opinion: I think some people are still under the impression that the lockdown was meant to eradicate the virus. It wasn't. It was meant to slow it down to reasonable infection rates that our health care system could handle. Businesses will and must reopen. Staying home forever will not eradicate the virus, not in a mobile society. The most vulnerable populations must still exercise great caution, and the rest of the population, reasonable caution. Yes, more people will contract the virus. Things are not going to be back to pre-virus normal, but just don't be stupid. And be kind. Not everybody is in the same situation. I need to do what is reasonable for me and you need to do what is reasonable for you.
  13. If you currently have it and have only the mild, or asymptomatic version, it would help in tracing any contacts you may have exposed or encourage you to quarantine for 14 days to stop spreading it.
  14. That is odd, but pretty. It looks like purple broccoli!
  15. The problem remains that not all students in the public schools have devices or internet access. The Catholic school kids are required to have both. I agree with this in principle, but until the access to both can be addressed, online days don't work unless coupled with paper packets for the kids without the tools that they need. That solution would work best for public schools.
  16. It is worldwide. We would only have been done with it until the first traveler, whether by cruise or plane, carried the virus back to the US. I do believe that masks and social distancing will slow but not eradicate this virus. Without these steps it can grow too quickly.
  17. Not if they close down all parts of the super center except the grocery and pharmacy. That lowers the square footage considerably. I see that coming. I could be wrong.
  18. I agree that people with kids should leave them at home if at all possible.There is no reason to bring the whole family! The grocery store should NOT be a family outing. Keep in mind that single parents don't always have that option. I am not positive about this, but I don't think WIC can be linked for online pick-up. In some stores, SNAP can be. I try not to be judgemental without knowing the situation the parent may be in.
  19. I wonder how many square feet the DuBois Walmart is? I can't even venture a reasonable guess.
  20. I heard on the radio that Penn Highlands is asking for donations of n95 masks, surgical masks, gloves, saniwipes etc . They said there is a list of medical equipment needed on the the Bigfoot facebook page. At this time, I think they are asking this from businesses and companies that might have contacts. They are unable to get them.
  21. I am perfectly capable of understanding. I have a degree in Research Biology. There is no need to be rude. At no time did I say that it is a common symptom. I said SOME cases can present that way. I only mentioned it because I thought people should be aware that these lesser known symptoms might go unnoticed . Good heavens! I never dreamed that in my entire life that I could get into an argument about diarrhea! Here's hoping that we ALL stay healthy. There is still no need for panic, just caution. From the World Health Organization ". What are the symptoms of COVID-19? The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, tiredness, and dry cough. Some patients may have aches and pains, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat or diarrhea. These symptoms are usually mild and begin gradually. Some people become infected but don’t develop any symptoms and don't feel unwell. Most people (about 80%) recover from the disease without needing special treatment. Around 1 out of every 6 people who gets COVID-19 becomes seriously ill and develops difficulty breathing. Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like high blood pressure, heart problems or diabetes, are more likely to develop serious illness. People with fever, cough and difficulty breathing should seek medical attention." The most detailed breakdown of symptoms of the disease comes from a recent World Health Organization analysis of more than 55,000 confirmed cases in China. Here are the most common symptoms and the percentage of people who had them: Fever: 88% Dry cough: 68% Fatigue: 38% Coughing up sputum, or thick phlegm, from the lungs: 33% Shortness of breath: 19% Bone or joint pain: 15% Sore throat: 14% Headache: 14% Chills: 11% Nausea or vomiting: 5% Stuffy nose: 5% Diarrhea: 4% Coughing up blood: 1% Swollen eyes: 1%
  22. I could not disagree more. I believe this is spreading dangerous information. You are certainly entitled to your opinion. I will rely on the scientific evidence. While there is no reason to panic, there is great reason to approach this with much more caution.
  23. The problem with not testing is that many people who have contracted the virus have mild symptoms, don't realize it and see no reason to self- quarantine. They then are exposing more people to the virus and it is spreading quickly.
