    I'm taking at least a week off from social media, news, radio, and everything "virus". The non-stop, incessant caterwauling and overall bullshit that is everywhere, is simply over the top. Time for a break, guys. See ya around 1 April.

    So are the TV talking heads that are delivering the news. They are all smiling and happy to spread the doom and despair.

    I'm not talking about doom and despair.
    Roads are empty
    Business that are open are empty.
    I've stopped ordering anything and everything from Amazon.
    Dentist and Drs. appts. on hold.
    No commitments for the immediate future.
    FL is now is now its most beautiful season.
    I-4 is empty, no backups at the Disney World exits.
    I am not in the stock market. I have guaranteed annuities (I foresaw this yrs ago).
    I am outdoors from morning to evening.
    I'm not out at my watering hole spending money.

    I do feel for those who are out of work. I truly do.


    I'm happily using this time to reset, refresh, renergize, Re-everything.
    Thank you for asking.
    Do you want me to keep going???

    You know I haven't watched a single news program? Actually I cant remember the last time I did, I turned off of them years ago. Has it gotten bad?

    When sitting in front of the box, we watch re-runs of old tv shows/movies instead, that's how bad the current programming is, not just the news.

    Ok, four days was good enough. At least, for FCBO! Lol! TV news and FB are still out of my life for awhile.

    Yea now that the TT has been canceled I haven't been on FacePhuk since the last Mopar search a month or so ago. Just went on to post up in my timeline that I was still breathing for any of my TT contacts.

    Seems that all of my still alive old friends and relatives have shown no activity since 2016.
    I take it that was about the time all the culling of information surfaced.
    The only other active ones are just constantly spamming Trump bullshit (oh the cycle of idiotism goes round & round).
