    Advice from a buddy of mine (posted in a forum for another hobby of mine):

    Heard a Dr. on TV saying in this time of Coronavirus staying at home we should focus on inner peace.

    To achieve this we should always finish things we start and we all could use more calm in our lives. I looked through our house to find things i'd started and hadn't finished, so I finished off a bottle of Merlot, a bottle of Chardonnay, a bodle of Baileys, a butle of wum, tha mainder of Valiumun srciptuns, an a box a chocletz. Yu haf no idr how feckin fablus I feel rite now. Sned this to all who need inner piss. An telum u luvum. And two hash yer wands, stafe day avrybobby!!!

          But the kids will be so underrated after 4.5 months of full-time watching GM videos and playing online.

            Sigh ... the U.S. will have the most deaths today, over 1000.

                    Windsor is up to 128 cases from zero just a week ago. Given what's happening in Michigan, I think there is a bit of deep doo doo heading our way. The dumb governor has reversed course on her directive threatening medical practitioners who prescribe hydroxychloroquine.

                    The phony hoax of the "Trump supporters" who took fish tank cleaner appears to be unravelling with the revelation that they were Hillary financial supporters and activists. If hubby died after taking the cleaner I would take a close look at insurance policies and estates for a motive.

                      Where do you get this data by city? I would love to know how many cases in Burlington.

                              I am getting it from Dalson Chen articles from the Windsor Star Online edition. I usually check in the morning when the articles are about an hour old. I suspect that you can do the same by going to similar articles from your local paper online edition. Also check ctv and cbc websites.

                                I cope by listening to a lot of music. I find the band Deicide to be especially poignant at this time. I am also getting into the symphonies of Penderecki. Then of course the usual suspects such as the Allmans, Skynyrd, Motorhead, The Beatles, Pantera...
                                Krzysztof Penderecki passed away a few days ago, as the world around
                                him hurtled to mass destruction. How fitting for the composer of "Threnody
                                to the Victims of Hiroshima", on another cataclysmic loss of human life.

                                Not for him the contemporary avant-garde world of Stockhausen, Nono, Boulez
                                and Cage - his preoccupation lay with atonal colour. Foreshadowing Alpha Zero 's
                                thrust, he stated, "All I'm interested in is liberating sound beyond all tradition."

                                Yet his iconic St. Luke Passion bears comparison to Bach's St. Matthew's.
                                For one beloved of Bach, Beethoven and Brahms, I was still fascinated by
                                Penderecki's metier, his body of work often deeply moving. Though, without
                                unduly tempting Providence at this time, in my last moments on earth I would
                                delightfully pass on to the divine strains of Mozart's clarinet concerto in A.

                                I grew up on the Allman Brothers, Duane inspiring my forays into bloodied
                                rock guitar. Greg was a guitar god. Anyone with a masochistic penchant for
                                opiod abuse should read his fascinating autobiography "My Cross To Bear",
                                a tribute to excellence and excess. Blessed with stirring looks, and outrageous
                                talent, Greg was forever surrounded by pulchritudinous groupies and gorgeous
                                women (he went through seven marriages, including Cher).

                                In an entertaining passage Greg even describes regular carnal simuls! With a
                                girl in each room down a hotel corridor, Greg moved like a great chess master.

                                “I would have women in four or five different rooms,” Allman boasted in his book.
                                “Mind you, I wouldn’t lie to anybody; ​I’d just say, ‘I’ll be right back!".

                                Touche!
