Naw... it's just a very bad situation right now. Everyone here has conducted themselves very well...IMO. It's extremely hard not to express an opinion... one way or the other, under these circumstances. I can keep politics out of it, but I am very stressed out right now. I can't even access the ohio unemployment site to apply for unemployment becaus e the site is crashed. I mean, who would have thought to bolster the site and prepare for this ,when you put thousands of people out of work in one day?

So well said. You have every right to be frustrated and here you are, keeping your composure and maintaining decorum.

I hope you find what you need and wish you the best.

Fortunately, I have been furloughed. That means I get to go back to work when this ish is over with. I hope the best you and your son.... and your extended family. None of us has ever been through anything like this, no matter our respective ages. We will get through this!

The governor shut us down tonight.  Shelter and stay safe... for 2 weeks!  

No more golf.  🤐

Here in Australia I think we are about to go to more stringent lockdown. Our state Premier's (Governor equivalent) from both sides of the political divide are showing great leadership across the board, and have really been driving the necessary changes. Our federal government have perhaps been a little slow to respond, but hopefully things will progress more quickly on management of the crisis than the disease progresses. Consistency of messaging is so important in getting a good response.

I'm a public health worker, so will still be working throughout this crisis. I just hope people can listen to and follow the directions to shutdown normal life so we can stop transmission. A lockdown will have the added effect of reducing road trauma and the concurrent pressure that puts on the health system. Hopefully we don't get too many home handymen falling of ladders as they do all the odd jobs around the house.  A few weeks or months of hardship is much preferred to a complete implosion and collapse of health systems and perhaps society.

Stay safe, indoors as much as possible, keep your distance and wash your hands.

A separate point,  remember to interact with your family and friends in other ways. Phone calls, skype, whatever it is other than face to face contact. We all need to maintain our mental health during this time. Tolerance is not one of my strengths, but I know I'll get a good chance to work on it.

I succumbed, and failed miserably. Managed 1/2 a push up, with one less than motivating assistant.  I chose my lighter and taller daughter to spread the load, didn't help, I was still less than pathetic. Apologies for the crappy pic, my wife decided to video it, no way I was uploading the whole sad thing or doing a take two. I might need to self isolate for a couple of weeks to recover.

You might want to try our 100/day push up challenge ...but without the extra weight 😁

I’m starting a plank challenge today with my wife and kids.

Starting with a minute.

A few years ago I was up to 9 minutes.... we’ll see.

I hope and pray everyone is doing well today. Take care ladies and gentlemen.
