How is COVID-19 impacting your life?

I concur with Jan. It’s the unsung heroes of the mundane that keep the world going day in and day out. They get little credit until they suddenly disappear; until then, they’re basically unseen. Truly Kipling’s “Sons of Martha.”

Hiy Sassy… yep, I’m in the same boat as you, I also live alone and haven’t been outside my apartment for the last 4 weeks now, I always keep a nice clean and tidy apartment but now it’s SPARKLING :sweat_smile: my life at the moment consists of cleaning and dusting, Netflix, Amazon video, bluray’s and a little more time at the PC due to these unfortunate circumstances… I’m pleased to hear that you’re coping though and can only hope that people act responsibly with social distancing so that the pandemic is soon behind us all. :pray:

I have been very happy that there has been very little talk about the virus at the tables. I have played everyday for a month and not one conversation started. This is nice, so that we can play and take our mind off of it. Thanks to everyone for making this a place we can forget for a little while.

Today I went out for the first time in over a month to buy a TV to play video games in my room (I figured It would just be quicker then ordering online with most online orders backed up.)

I went to my local WalMart and there were no lines getting and if there was no employees were enforcing it. A lot of people were wearing masks and there were markings on the floor to be 6 feet apart but that was about it. People were sill gathering in groups in the aisles so that was frustrating.

Most of the time I was in there was spent in line at the registers because they’re were only 2 of them open.

I kept my distance from people and was in and out of the store in 15 minutes. I really hope this pandemic ends soon and things start getting back to normal.

Some GOOD news for a change: We Should Emulate the Righteous Actions (of) Casino Owners
Excerpt: Despite being one of the industries hit hardest by the economic challenges of the coronavirus, it is ironic and exemplary how the gaming industry is taking care of people. While nearly 650,000 casino employees are out of work, a few companies are going above and beyond to take care of their people. Red Rock Resorts is continuing to pay all employee salaries and benefits through May 15. Wynn Resorts CEO Matt Maddox was the first to close the Wynn’s doors, even before the state of Nevada ordered them shut. But Wynn is paying all of their 13,000 employees their full salaries until at least May 15. When the government of Macao shut down gaming facilities, it cost Wynn $2.6 million every day, mostly in salaries. But they paid the salaries and took care of their people.
[Well, here’s some unexpected good news. Good article, worth reading.]

Not to mention the local optometrist who fell into his lens grinding machine and made a spectacle of himself…

I think this is going to have a Domino-Snowball effect on what could be a long list of businesses and it’s impact on both our economic and sociological world’s could be devastating. There’s the potential for all of our rides to be wild ones in the near future. I hope we can still enjoy ourselves while participating in the game we love to hate to love to hate to love. Peace.

Trying to Win a poker tournament is like trying to beat the Covid-19, if you are at a disadvantage (you are old, you have some other illness) it is most likely that you will NOT do it.

So FOLD (save yourself) … wait for the next hand and stay home.

P.S.:
Meanwhile, you can play in Replay :slight_smile:
Did you know that when you are in “intensive care” if you survive the 5th day, until then you are assigned a nutritionist … have you ever thought about what it is like to eat if you are connected to a respirator?
