I hope everyone is doing well, even those on the right. Even the ones I have blocked :-)
Curious of the members status during this historic crisis.

I am BORED
For the 1st time ever in my life, tons and tons of free time
I do a lot of bike riding and golf once a week. Not much else to do since everything else closed
Right now sitting in my open garage listening to music and surfing the internet.
Going to finish up a game of Civilization V.

I voted 'retired', although I spend around 4 hours a week now remotely on conference calls and the like regarding the virus and its effect on Anesthesiology, anesthesia practices, and other such stuff.

Why only golf once a week? If I was your neighbor, I'd be chasing the white ball around almost daily......

I've been going outside for walks, and wifey just started joining me.

Working from home as usual. Very little face-to-face contact with customers since the lock down/stay-at-home stuff. Business is 80% or better of normal and even busy at times. We do have people with more customer contact, which is a concern but it is part of IT. Fix what you can remotely, but not everything will work that way. Customers still buying new stuff.

It is a little more boring because there are a lot of people I saw regularly pre-Coronavirus. Everyone is itching to get back to a little normalcy.

All grocery shopping done via curbside pickup for 3 weeks now. I did a pickup this morning; the store looked less crowded that last week.

We have missed one vacation so far; a second one is in peril. Saved a lot of money! We'll have to see what the "re-opening" plans are, along with the virus numbers, before heading anywhere.

Working full time from home. Incoming accounts still strong, in fact the china virus is the only reason we have caught up. Emails from clients requesting this or that have finally gotten to a handleable range.

It is weird, like being a survivor of sorts. No change in work income, OT even still mandatory. Yet hear news of the depression around you.

Only thing changed for me is
I haven't been to the casino
since end of Jan when I got
sick. And now they're all closed.
Luckily I got $1200 from Trump,
but that's just a small portion
of what I'm missing. Other than
that, my life is exactly the same.

Working from home full time.

I have worked from home since 2016, so no change there.

Biggest change: no gym. Also, not able to go to Vegas anytime soon. :(

Still in my unit at the Poorhouse recovering slowly from massive blood loss due to contraindicated drug they Rx'd and trying to recover from massive weight gain their dietary advice caused.
I only rarely make it the 16 feet to the front bench, so how can I exercise enough to lose weight?
Still living on MOW deliveries which are 3x a week with six feet separation.
May do supermarket delivery service soon for water and stuff.

No gambling, not even online,

Exercise has nothing to do with
weight loss, that's a fact. It's
a myth. It's all what carbs you
put in your mouth. Stick with
under 20 g of carb a day and
1500 calories and you'll lose
weight. I remember Rush
losing 100 pounds with no
exercise at all. And I've done
it numerous times.

For instance , one slice of
bread has 28 g of carb. One
medium potato has 37 g.
One cup of rice has 45 g.
Those types of foods are
poison to the obese.
If you take a risk, you may lose. If you never take a risk, you will always lose.

You said this with a straight face? Jesus Christ...
Be bold and risk defeat, or be cautious and encourage it.
