Terrible. Vanity and sex appeal are getting hit hard by the virus and lockdowns. The human race may never recover.

She also said that myself,mum and dad are the only ones whose appearance hasn't changed during the lockdown. Now I can't decide whether to take that as a compliment or not.

No change is certainly better than saying you look worse.

I've noticed many newscasters, pundits, etc. videoing from home look abit grungy or 10 years older, probably for lack of makeup, complimentary lighting. Or maybe it's my glasses.

Well waited in line for two hours but got tested. It was over in a blink of an eye. The moment you might feel discomfort its done. No big deal at all. Now the nervous wait...

solium, how are you doing my friend, have you got the results yet?

It's a pandemic we've never had to deal with before. Nor has the world ever come to a complete halt, at least in modern times. People are impatient and want results. So governments and the medical field are rushing to try anything that may or may not work. Its an imperfect situation to say the least.

Glad to hear it!

Just one of my periodic updates (these are actually helpful to me in keeping track of what has happened and when it happened!). I started going back to work M-F, 9AM-5PM, over two weeks ago. It has been fine. I've not had problems on the subway as before -- and they do seem to be sanitizing the cars as promised. Still very few riders in the AM -- six in my car this AM. Almost everyone in the subway cars and on the platforms wear masks going uptown on the 4-5-6 trains. I've noted that couples, mostly younger, tend to be the ones either without masks or with them pulled down so they can talk to each other. That is also my experience in my neighborhood -- younger joggers and couples tend to have the masks but pulled down and not over their nose and mouths. We've learned that there were several of our staff who visited my office in late February and early March who tested positive and had mild illnesses -- I did spend time with each of them. But I've not had symptoms and that exposure was 2 months ago. I'm trying to get an antibody test. There were several staff at my location who were really sick in late January/early February -- and in hindsight they most likely had the virus, too. So much is unknown.

I'm continuing to try and stay positive -- reactivated my Facebook page where I've been posting far too frequently.

It seems clear that NYC is going to open within a few weeks. I have no idea how I will cope with increased numbers in the subway and on the Streets. There are already many more people and cars about -- taking walks and driving who knows where. I was walking in the street in my Brooklyn neighborhood this AM on the way to the subway when a car approached and I moved to the side. The driver yelled at me "Use the sidewalk!" So I guess we're getting back to "normal."

My thoughts and prayers are with everyone who has reported problems!

Hope everything continues to improve in your section of NYC John. My son is 28 and is getting frustrated with a small group of his friends who have been getting together for a few weeks now and seem to be oblivious to the virus now. Some have young children and that doesn’t seem to concern them either. He’s not socializing with them but he worries about them.

We did get great news that there are longer any active cases at my mother-in-law’s assisted living facility. She was tested a third time using the long test as they called it and tested negative. That’s a relief.

Our company is not even considering going back until after Labor Day. That makes me feel better. Not in any hurry to be in close proximity to a large crowd.

Stay safe John and everyone.

This seems to be very good news indeed from the Korean CDC on reinfection and antibodies:

Click on the first release "Findings from investigation and analysis of re-positive cases".

With my replies coming a week later, I feel like I'm communicating with y'all from LV-426.

EVERYONE here totally missed my nerd-reference above.

I'm taking Princess Points away from EVERYONE in this thread! big grin

I find that I'm having to make more of a conscious effort to push myself away from the news.
It seems like every day there is another new story describing batsh*t-insane behavior by people--and what's even worse, the effect is that it makes the batsh*t-insane behavior of the day before seem relatively normal.


I've had to avoid newcasts generally. I made an effort to screen what were the ones making me nutty, and what were not. I narrowed it to one local station.

Since then, I'm finding that I've not heard much of what you name above, O-man. If you want, I'll point you to their online podcast of their nightly newscast. It's actually a calming experience. Email me, if you want to know where to find it.

And as long as I've got your attention, have I told you lately that you're a sweetheart, taking up defense for others? I haven't? Would I be embarrassing you if I did? If it would embarrass you, I won't.

Oops, too late... I just did! smile
