Quarrentine Check in

Recommended Posts

Just checking in to see how everyone is doing. I have been lucky, I can do my job from home, can work with customers via teleconference, it is a software company, so we don't make a physical product. Everyone is working from home, getting things accomplished, getting new customers on line. 

My wife can work at home as well, she has a desk on the other side of the house, things are going smoothly for us. We are feeling good, our kids and grandkids are safe at home as well. 

 

My home office is a pretty comfortable place to work.

How are the rest of you doing? Is your family healthy? Are you able to work?

 

Do you think the grass drags will be cancelled???  :sleds:

Our governor today extended the executive emergency order until May 31, but with fewer restrictions. Anybody's guess after that. The big June motorcycle week event is up in the air, with the possibility of an August date. The grass drags are in September, and that's over 4 months away. I'd guess the honest answer would be they don't know. The agricultural fairs are already being cancelled because it's time to make commitments and get commitments with state and local governments, vendors and suppliers.The NHRA must be looking at a "drop dead" date when they have to make similar commitments. Right now, the virus is still calling the shots, and our southern neighbor state is very much in the middle of the fight.

Bike Week is cancelled for June... and many businesses that have the higher end customers are not happy with the concept of August. 

Unfortunately for Charlie St. Claire, a lot of people are beginning to notice that of all the municipalities with lake frontage, Laconia is in the worst shape... and is the only community that has lake frontage on three lakes. 

Business for us, due to that higher end customer is way up... more than 70% over last year... which was a record year for us. But with the possibility of losing LRGH, too many elderly on Medicare where the hospital isn't reimbursed the full cost of services, we may see that slow down as those that have some money... but are not really at the top of the game... begin cutting back.

Wife and I have done very well, considering. Glad when we can visit family in assisted living again.

My mother-in-law is in a nursing home. Has a stoke a little over two years ago, between that and dementia (she is 90 years old), she really needs to be in that environment. 

We cannot visit her, which has been a challenge. My wife and her family have made sure she gets a visit every day up until the nursing home went into lockdown. We talk to her on the phone, to the extent that we can, she seems to be doing OK. 

According to reports we get from the nursing home, two employees, and 3 residents have tested positive. We hare just waiting and hoping she doesn't get sick, it likely won't end well. This thing does a lot of damage in nursing homes.

I plan on voicing the Next Generations Love for Conservatism and to let all Elite Rhino Republican know that their rein along side big government needs to end. 
The Geneeation That was after WWII gave Americans Trillions in dept With The New Deal, SS, Medicaid, Medicare, take over of our school systems, the packing of your Supreme Court, every person in American 100% college loans. 
 

there no such thing as a Millennial Republican. We either believe is socialist ideals like the Baby Boomers infested us with or We are Conservatives.

 

Please try to veer away from political arguments, which are not allowed on this site. This thread is about "Quarantine Check In" and should stay in that direction.

Sorry Pathfinder

No Worries! We are all under a lot of stress that shows up in different ways. I'm sure more of us would like to vent about politics (me included) but that would lead to a very deep down slope for the site. Appreciate the apology! Be safe!

If you have a shortage of deer up your way I'd love to ship you a cattle car load, or three, from down here. Pretty good crop of red foxes too.

Isolation is not much fun after a few weeks, and home is getting a little redundant. I'm lucky I'm retired (I think) so  guess you could say I work from home. My current focus is trying to gather enough firewood for next winter before the black flies arrive to make it a living hell to do. I am doing it the least efficient way, by going out and finding standing deadwood, dropping it, and cutting it to 16 inch lengths and then hauling it in to face the splitter behind a wheeler in a cart. This had been working out pretty well until the second coming of winter arrived, which I'm sure will end soon and the black flies will arrive in full force. Also recently acquired a massive amount of older sled parts from the inventory of Youngs Third Generation Repair, which is soon to go on the market, so that has taken a lot of time and effort trying to figure out what to do with lots of stuff, having lots of stuff already. Being in Pittsburg in the off season is normally a little boring, but no Buck Rub, no Happy Corner, No Tall Timber, not even Hicks lumber is open.  Kind of like a bad sci-fi movie. Hi lite of the week is armoring up to go to the IGA in Colebrook and maybe Walgreens. So far everything is consistently variable which is a good description of Pittsburg anyway. Be Safe!!

But, on the other hand, Spring is motoring along and won't be denied. Today, about 5 PM. Ain't no stopping it. Grass is green, maples are in bud, and the garden is waiting to be planted. This mess will end. I'm putting in snap peas tomorrow, corn in a week, and sweet potatoes in 3 weeks. Life goes on. Just look out your window and see how pretty it is, and just how good we have it.

What a nice garden! Amazing what a couple of hundred miles a difference makes. I don't expect to see that much green for another 2-3 weeks!

Being a landscape contractor things motor on as normal with maybe a few less phone calls which will probably pick-up once we get into a normal spring weather pattern.  We keep our distance and work outside away from people.  Can't believe its 2 weeks to Memorial Weekend all ready.   Normal spring issues with not enough quality help...everyone is working (not) or getting paid too much to stay home!  Seems to be a problem with all the area contractors...oh well.   Family is good and Wife works from home anyway.  Had a few "social distancing" weekend fires with refreshments.  I guess the good Lord is trying to tell me to slow down and chill in his own way...looks like this Pandemic can bring out some good things in humanity and living life in general!

Stay healthy my friends...

Thanks. Note the deer fencing around it. Without that fencing we humans wouldn't get a taste of what grows there. They truly are a walking stomach.

Today we saw several bluebirds, a male Baltimore Oriole, two Flickers, and a Pileated Woodpecker. Oh yeah, the swallows are back.

Good things in the middle of the bad. There's too many discouraged people.

 

Edit: Just wanted to add one more thing. Anybody else here old enough to remember the Mayflower doughnut boxes that had a quote printed on the box that said "As you wander on through life, brother, whatever be your goal, keep your eye upon the doughnut, and not upon the hole."

Pretty good deal; a great philosophy, and a good doughnut, for a fair price.
