    Hope ya'll stocked up on toilet paper, and paper towels. The CDC tells us to wash our hands frequently, and everyone freaks out and raids the stores for the paper. The media is hyperventilating over this virus, and it's getting insane. Me, I'm gonna continue to live my life, and not stress over this. Ya'll be safe out there!

    Yes, we are constantly bombarded with "News".
    Bad News = Good News for the media.

    It's at epic proportions at least equal to an Alien Invasion from another Galaxy!

    Washing hands is good and don't dig around in the corners of your eyes (a main entrance).

    Don't fold your toilet paper multiple times and just use single sheets which will absolutely remind you to wash your hands. :)

    It has crippled NZ with the big push on tourism for the past 20 years. Major collapse.
    Borders closed etc, madness.
    More people die from TB a year
    I finally have a sale on my house, but all could come unstuck if the madness gets out of hand

    Hang in there Kiwi, stay positive, the house will sell. On another note, I agree, the Swine Flu didn't create the panic and hysteria that this virus is. Don't get why the market is tanking, but that's ok. I've been mopping up on oil shares and a few others. I also invest in gold and silver, and for some odd reason, it's down. Good for me though, been buying it as well.

    Only one final step on the house sale, the builders report, he has been and they should get Monday or Tuesday. Fingers crossed they are happy with that and BOOM! we are gone.
    Have bought a house in Pleasant Point near Timaru. All just hinges on the builders report...no stress:mad: none at all.

    NZ is now in lockdown. 4 weeks min. That will make selling and moving house interesting if it happens at all.
    All schools and non essential businesses close tomorrow

    I'm not in lockdown yet, but we now have to get our temperature taken before we can enter our work area.

    Back in 90, I got out of aviation for a couple years, got my Class A, and drove. I enjoyed it a lot. Seen some crazy stuff on the roads, LOL. People don't realize you can see DOWN into their cars...

    Florida just started the stay at home at midnight tonight for the next 30 days .
    Anyone traveling into the state are stopped , names taken and required to quarantine for 14 days ... mainly it’s people fleeing NY and LA. Hotspots .
    If they think I’m staying at home and not working they can kiss my ass .. I work alone , live alone and have no contact with clients .. only place I would catch this virus bitch would be at the gas pump , 7-11 or grocery store getting more damn supplies for another month . But I am taking precautions at those places and the zombie apocalypse isnt going to take down this old fart with underlying issues . I’m ready for you bitch dog virus .. see if your ready this this tough SOB old fart .

    Yeah, I'm in the Pooler/Savannah area, and it's basically a ghost town, not much traffic. I have noticed an up tick of NY, NJ plates though, and not too happy about that. Ya'll be safe!
