You have families living paycheck to paycheck. They will need supplies too but wonít be able to buy. There is absolutely no reason to be freaking out like so. I too canít even do any demos of my product in any store chain. I smell political strategy here. Freak out the people so they can spend more. Why arenít stores like Costco or any stores put a limit on items n why is things more expensive now? My aunt went to the pharmacy to buy polysporin for an earache. None on the shelf she said. She went to ask other side of the counter n lady said we only have 2 left. My aunt said I need one Iím 80yrs old n have a bit of an earache. Get this, lady said it will be MORE expensive!!! My aunt didnít care n still bought it at 2x the price! Hell I would of reported that. Itís illegal. She gets her pills there and didnít want to stir any issues . People need to use commonsense. Like other fluís kills way more so wash your hands more often.

    @1Chumly, yes you can freeze milk.
    I have never attempted to freeze milk but read it changes it (?). It's like cheddar cheese, you 'can' freeze it but I don't as it changes the texture and it is nowhere near as good!

    If you take like skim milk or 1% yes odd. But if you take like cream or full fat, not much change. Cheese is different as it’s mostly compacted together.

    I read that you can freeze it but it will change the flavor and texture.

    I know I froze a few times cream. I didn’t really see a difference. I guess we have different cows...

    For those who uses baby formula for your “human “ babies, seems behind the formula’s can there’s a phone # you can call and they will ship you the milk. Some says it’s free... I saw that on the news. Idk if it’s everyone but worth a try.

    I just got an email that Petsmart is shutting down their grooming salons for dogs. Previously my dentist emailed me that he is just open for emergencies. It's hit everyone. There's good reason to carry around hand sanitizer and wear a surgical mask if you have to go shopping in the supermarket, but they aren't even available. Shame on those people who stockpiled them and are trying to sell them at a huge markup. There's a huge shortage, and the CDC is even advising health professionals to use scarves or bandanas if they can't get a surgical mask. Early on in the course of covid the CDC was advising health professionals to use N95 masks, but now they claim it's spread by droplets and you only need a surgical mask unless you are intubating the patient. My feeling is that they changed their mind based on the shortage, but who knows.

    There's lots of remedies for covid, but they're not miracle cures. Hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine plus/minus azithromycin, kaletra, tocilizumab are all being tried early on in course. Later on remdesivir inj if unfortunately you need to be intubated.


    WRT milk, you might be able to buy almond, soy or oat milk somewhere if you can't find milk.

    Yes I read up on Hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine .. interesting.

    When I go out, I now use surgical gloves. I have a lot cause I use them in the kitchen for my business. It’s the weekend n everyone should simply stay home. Hey great time to do some spring cleaning...

    Now they’re saying surgical masks are good cause covid is caused by droplets. Wonder if they’re saying that cause they’re running out of masks.
    N95 n Mediocre Masks are the ones to be used...

    Here in Canada the car plants n part plants will start doing ventilators for the hospitals. Brewers started to do sanitizer as they make vodka n will have that going, then other companies are concentrating on masks... Time for all businesses get their companies doing other items and help out.

    All is well here in NE Tennessee. We have had two cases of Coronavirus and both have recovered. One was on a cruise ship and the other was traveling for work and had just returned from Italy.

    Most of the businesses here are shut down and restaurants are take out or drive thru for the most part. I am an introvert for the most part so I am just around family, neighbors and people I work with so my exposure is low to others. My extrovert side went away once I quit drinking and my friends did not

    I finally went out and bought foods with a long shelf life yesterday and was entertained at the foods that are missing off shelfs like bread, milk and meat which do not last long and the lack of toilet paper since this is a respiratory virus and not an intestinal one


    Stay safe and may God Bless you all with health
