1. How is the Coronavirus situation where you live? What's closed down? Have you gone out much? Are you (Oh, what's the trendy term now " Self-distancing "?) staying inside as a precaution or actually infected or is anyone else you know? I hope, if so, you're well. Let's...well, exchange comments.
  2.   I am now in Portland, Oregon. The Govenor, and then, locally, Portland declared a state of emergency. I saw the comment made that Oregon was the furthest behind on dealing with CV of the 3 West Coast states.
  3.   I went out yesterday ( Sun.), I am ill and had sleep to make up to-day (Mon.) and ended up not going out - I may go out across the street to a all-nite grocery tonite-early Tues. I have not heard of a regular medical appointment Tues. being cancelled.

"When did this album come out?"

1992.

That SCTV bit is pretty close to what the album is actually like. 

I remember those guys! Jazz Is Led also used reggae rhythms on some of their covers.

Great!

Brings to mind the very different Dread Zeppelin, who did (do?) reggae covers of Led Zeppelin tunes with an Elvis impersonator on lead vocals. This works far better than one might imagine.

Back on topic: Pearls Before Swine

Earlier this week, actor Richard Burgi posted on Instagram that he's leaving The Young and the Restless. It was a surprise, since he started only in March.

Now, he's saying he was fired because he was exposed to COVID-19 and self-quarantined for five days and went back to work after two negative tests -- but the show requires a 10-day quarantine

This past Sunday, I ended up working at my LCS, because the dude who was supposed to work tested positive. He is fine, and actually had very mild symptoms.

Now a friend of mine, her brother was sent home from the hospital, but he has a terrible combo of COVID and pneumonia.

We ordered our four free testing kits yesterday so we'd have them on hand if/when we need them. 

Free testing kits became available at our local libraries last week. I went three times before I got a pair. The line stretched down the block, around the corner and down the next block, but it moved quickly.

We've been testing regularly - NJ mails out free at home tests to send back to a lab, but it's slooow. I've just ordered the four instant ones from the government website, and we'll have them on hand too. And we've got N95 masks, which we wear pretty much everywhere we go -- including while we're curling, which is a BEAR. 

Tracy also ordered four from Amazon, which we received today, so now we have eight for the two of us. (What if you have a family of five?)

Tracy's friend works on an on-call basis. One of the offices in her region has a boss who is almost impossible to work for. Before Tracy could warn her friend, she accepted a job for the entire month of January. Last week, the boss had a meeting with a client, both unmasked, against company policy. The client mentioned to Tracy friend that her son had COVID. Now the boss has it and is at home. By the time the boss comes back to work, Tracy's friend is going to take isolate herself for the rest of the year. Some people!

My friend will isolate the rest of this week and next, so just through January. However, she will not be working with that person again.

It's unbelievable that someone would knowingly put people at risk, and expressly against company policy.

Like this guy?

From CNN: "Gorsuch Declines to Wear Mask, as Bench-mate Sotomayor Works from Home"

Yes! Exactly like that guy!

"Tracy's friend is going to take isolate herself for the rest of the year month"

I meant to say "month."
