Mood: Always cranky unless medicated

[*] posted on 4-4-2020 at 07:11 PM


One thing that hasn't disappeared off our Li'l WW shelves is da booze. However, I did go stock up with my martini vogka and wheeskeys that'll last me at least 4 weeks (didn't get too greedy).

I can live for daze without fud.

p.s., our county in southern NM is still disease-free so far. Governor Lujan Grusham did a really wonderful job on pre-emptive strikes and decrees; the local Trumpanzees (red county) are swallowing their tongues over her but one of the true LEADING MOVES in State's governing in the whole Country. Thank you, Ms. Lujan Grisham.

I have to drive about 40 miles each way twice a week to get 4 antigen shots for severe allergies. I am torn with walking into ground zero (med clinic) and have talked to my health pro's if..... SHOULD I STAY OR SHOULD I GO dilemma. I am diabetic with heart disease and obesity; so it's a huge concern to me. However, my allergy clinic encourages me to continue my injections because it bolsters my immune system. So until the 'curve' hits our area i'm taking the risk for now, but monitoring it closely. And, having discussed with the clinic nurses, thanks to HEPPA (?) rules they aren't allowed to warn me in any way, shape or form if the chit hits the fan locally. Quien sabes, no?

The amount of protocols in place still keep me feeling i'm mostly safe with PPE measures in place, both mine and theirs. Once the curve swings our way i'll curtail my runs, because I don't wanna be the Typhoid Mario to bring it back to my small burg (the clinic is in an infected county, but way north of its' epicenter....so far).

HEALTHFUL TIPS:
Carry plastic grocery bags or a roll of paper towels in your vehicle to cover your hands when pumping gas, touching 'pin' buttons etc and keep your fingers away from things like gas pumps and self-checkout buttons, etc. There are always trash receptacles near all gas pumps and grocery checkouts. Also good for opening doors that aren't automatic. Elbows work wonders on open-sesame button doors.

Remember; the virus is NOT ALIVE, and has a fatty 'shell' to it so common dish soap and HOT water (applied at the same time for those mentally challenged out there) is tantamount in importance..... both often and regularly.





I don't have a BUCKET LIST, but I do have a F***- IT LIST a mile long!

I just continue to be astounded that there are still people who think it is fine to come down here because they are not being stopped by officials , who apparently are not doing their job.

Stay put.


I've been wondering by some of the posts lately.... is it the "STAY" or the "PUT" that confuses them?

Kinda like the big "N" or the little "o". SMDH


Gringo retirees and Spring breakers, traveling to Their vacation homes in baja, May be asymptomatic Typhoid Marys,... I suppose they feel secure in not following public health advice and orders, oblivious as to whether they are spreading contagion... :(
the selfish will always be selfish :(


Once again the armchair quarterback shows up and has no clue. Seems like there are a number of you out there.

The road is blocked into La Ventana. Drivers are asked:
1. When you go through the filter, they ask if you're a neighbor. If you're not a neighbor, ask you more questions. Where are you going? What are you doing?

2. Remind you that the beaches are closed and you can't be in La Ventana. ➤ celebrate Forbidden camping. Everything is closed!

3. If you have a house here, we remind you that you cannot be on the beach and recommend you return to your other home where you have been living.

4. The purpose of the checkpoint is to send people back home. Easter is coming and we are trying to avoid the snowball of people coming.



However, if you are one of the over 30 derelict gringos living tightly in the "Cudo" arroyo with no sanitation on the beach its still alright but heavens forbid a Mexican national dare come.

Its good to stop flow, but truly the derelicts should be told to move on as they can't afford to pay at the campground more less support themselves if needed when they get sick and pass it on to the locals.

Coudn't agree with you more. I have no idea why the delegation doesn't crack down on those people

Now that road blocks are going up in many places,... will sick people behind the barriers be collected by soldiers in hazmat suits and placed in leper colonies?

Meanwhile back here in the land of the free...otherwise known as Santee, The local Costco has a line of people extending outside down the length of the building for 2-3 hours prior to opening. The full parking lot attests to the numbers in that line who stand all about one shopping cart apart.

Put that same line along the waters edge of a local beach and there would be a police action. Arrests, fines, disbursement, with those resisting physically restrained. And that would happen in 15 minutes not hours.
