    I've been seeing GOP advertisements asking people to protest the economy being closed.
    Before the country reopens there needs to be an effective treatment protocol and a vaccine.
    If they reopen the country, 10's of thousands of people will be murdered by the virus.
    It's abortion for people that are in their 700th trimester. or that have pre-existing conditions.

    My wife and I went to the OSU satellite center in Upper Arlington yesterday for labs. She has autoimmune hepatitis and was a month overdue for labs. I was two months overdue for mine.

    When we arrived, we each took a shot of hand sanitizer as we entered the building. We were both wearing masks, but my wife was asked to take off her cloth mask and put on a paper surgical mask. (I was already wearing a paper mask.) They asked the usual triage questions and took our temperatures. From there, we went to central registration. The cubicles were set up for social distancing with every other one vacant. We were given our wristbands and sample stickers. Then they routed us to the lab in such a way as to avoid people entering registration. When we got to the lab, the waiting room chairs were socially distanced. The phlebotomists sanitized the space between patients. After giving samples, we left and my wife gave me more hand sanitizer before I got into the car. We felt safe the entire time. We went at about 9:00 AM when the lab is less busy.

    Our results came in yesterday afternoon. Herís were fine. Mine showed some possible evidence of (more) kidney issues, so I sent a note to Dr Villa Forte. We both feel fine.

    Last trip to Mayo was exactly the same: masks, temps, questions, directed and redirected, available sanitizers, it all went well & felt safe. Maybe better than usual! Oh, all the lines and checking in is being done OUTSIDE! It's nice and warm here, kills viruses!! LOL, just laughing in the face of anxiety! All be healthy!

    Hope your kidney issues are too concerning!

    Looks like someone re-registered me, as I was having trouble with that. Thank you. Now I can like and reply to people's posts. It will take some time to get caught up. Have been letting myself get bogged down with Facebook stuff, arguing against conspiracy theories, etc. A fruitless endeavor that becomes toxic, so I am ignoring new posts in that vein.

    Masha, I always enjoy your posts. I'm sorry about your issues with appliances, etc. Same here, and since I live alone, there is more of a tendency to let things slide. Same with the cooking and baking, more fun with another person there to appreciate it. I would be making bread but still having trouble getting flour. There's some out there, but is bleached white. I always buy unbleached. The small amount of good flour I've seen, including whole wheat, is at a small convenience store and too expensive. Haven't looked everywhere, and good bread is available reasonably.
    I love your husband's idea of the white Christmas lights.
    Good news on the financial front ; I am collecting the special unemployment for self-employed persons, provided for in the CARES act, and it is making a big difference. I am grateful. I don't know when I will be allowed to sell my pottery at the farmers market again. I'm not even sure I want to do it anymore. But I would need to find something to take its place.
    Hang in there, everyone.
