    I pray so hard that country singer Joe Diffie doesn't go anywhere anytime soon. https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-country/joe-diffie-covid-19-coronavirus-974464/?fbclid=IwAR0xPQZZSgtUP6W392A-2eUY2cu7LuWaDx1s0Jpa16oshVxRs_s6_rPlfIs God bless you and him always!!! Holly P.S. Sadly his awesome Music City News award show performance of "The Ships That Don't Come In" isn't at You Tube right now and so here is the official video clip for the song instead. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KTQJy-scAU8
  3. I just finished Tiger King - it was crazy! Carole totally fed her husband to the tigers. And Joe with the power of meth, can make straight young men marry him.

    @witchkitten oh nooooo ... I was comforting myself with the thought that I had at least already been exposed and was now putting it behind me. But just a good reminder that, no matter what, no one should become complacent and think "oh well I've had it so I can relax" etc.

    Forbes clan. I don't want to talk about clan Gordon I do consider myself Scottish from my Mom's side even though blood wise I don't actually have much. Still go to the San Diego Highland Games every year. I'm guessing that will be canceled this summer

    I did not know that! I had a friend who did a lot of competitions but I lack the coordination; I can put together a drunken Gay Gordons, Dashing White Sergeant or Strip the Willow at a wedding, but that’s as far as I go!

    Ha ha! 🤣 Did I ever tell you I was a highland dancer for about 15 years? Even competed in Scotland, I got 3rd place in the sword dance at the Lonach Highland Games in the late 80's. They were all impressed the girl from California placed in something 😉 Had to give up , my ankles and knees couldn't take it anymore.

    Meanwhile COVID-19 is about to require most of the British government to isolate; BoJo the PM and our health secretary have been displayed symptoms and tested positive, so there will be more. i am pleased it’s been publicly announced; we should be upfront about it. (now is the time for Scotland to rise and seize independence 🤣)

    I look forward to Prince Harry doing reality tv, since the celeb lifestyle is the one he seems to want now. 🤣

    This is going to be interesting to watch - they have such a narrow path they will be able to walk - they're already criticized no matter what they do. Ugh. But I'm sure it will be lovely to be near her mother!

    Coronavirus

    Fykey, you might not have it. There is apparently another virus that’s spreading around the country that is very similar to COVID-19 and is not the flu and not COVID-19. My older daughter came down with a bad cough (the worst she’s ever had and she had a terrible cough with Flu A last month) and a runny nose the week before school closed (I kept her home, of course). Her younger sister got it the following week and I got it a few days after my younger daughter. Not only did I have a bad cough but I had a sore throat, mild nasal symptoms, shortness of breath and lot of pressure in my chest. My younger daughter had a fever for two days but neither my older daughter nor I developed one. I was still sure it was COVID-19. I tried to get my younger daughter tested and I believe in other states she would have qualified but California is, for some reason, experiencing a worse test shortage than other states with a lot of cases and resources. I was 90% sure it was COVID-19 until I talked to a parent from my older daughter’s class yesterday who said her daughter had the same cough and it had been going around my daughter’s class. Like our family, it had spread to her classmate’s entire family as well. The mother was by some miracle able to be tested (after failing to get her children and husband tested) and she was negative for both flu and COVID-19. I’m now 99% sure we don’t/didn’t have it either, which is surprising because our symptoms were like many other people who did test positive for coronavirus. I was also listening to The Argument, a podcast from the NYT, and one of the hosts describes having had a virus that sounds exactly like the one we had, and it spread to his entire family as well. He was tested for COVID-19 and the test was negative as well. He believes the test was wrong (and wrong for his neighbor who also tested negative and had a lot of the symptoms) but I believe he had whatever virus we have so it’s apparently on both coasts. If there is another similar virus going around it’s really going to make tracking this thing even harder without widespread testing.

    RIGHT! (please, please, please) Video chatted with my friend yesterday, she is much better. Still has the cough but she said feeling like her old self again. She even did a little dance in her backyard to show her energy level was up lol. Interesting about the lack of fever. We all know the numbers are vastly under reported, and thus the symptoms are going to be under reported as well. Here's hoping it doesn't mutate!!

    Morning, everybody - Just read an interesting article out of Ohio that was notable to me for the fact that it says Woke up with another splitting headache, so that sucks. Still have this @#$%^& cough. Energy levels continue to be realllll low. On the positive side, sore throat and achiness have gone. In the absence of a fever, I was telling myself I was being dramatic about a cold, but now after reading this article I swear I have it. Thankful that it seems like, at this point in the week, I no longer need to worry about taking a bad turn for the worse, and if bad headaches and a crappy cough will be my lot for another week, then I am grateful that's the worst I'll face. Meanwhile my area is bragging about its low numbers despite refusing testing to all but the slimmest margin of people, so people like me who might have it will never know. Very frustrating. Princess, I hope your friend who is experiencing similar symptoms is doing well, and I hope ALL CHITCHATTERS continue in good health. And hey, 2020 can only get better -- right?? RIGHT???

    Oh man. Watching the Glovettotters on Scooby Doo. Classic Gen X latchkey kid stuff. They were so cool to me. I took my kids a bunch of times when they were younger to see the newer Globetrotters.

    Things that make you say "Hummm....."

    To be honest, that story makes me relate to Cumberbatch more than I thought possible. 🤣

    Things that make you say "Hummm....."

    >> Sher-locked << Benny's keeping safe Popbitch As we're all finding out, being cooped up for days on end can cause anyone to go a little cuckoo – so it's reassuring to know that it happens to A-listers too. While filming away from home a few years ago, Benedict Cumberbatch spent a night in his hotel getting sloshed and playing around with the valuables safe in his room. When he woke the next morning, he found that the safe was locked but had no idea what the combination was or what he had locked in there. Panicked that it was something important, he tried to get someone from the front desk to come and unlock it for him but to no avail. As the combination is set by the guest, and the hotel staff have no way of knowing what it is, they told him they couldn't do anything for him – other than call the safe company to send someone out to manually dismantle it. Which is what they ended up doing. And what did they find inside? A piece of gum and a receipt from the hotel bar.

    I’ve heard from people that day 4 is the absolute worst if you don’t completely tank, so hopefully either way you are out of the woods after today. Glad you are feeling a little better.

    Hey everybody. So far today it's 10:30 AM my time and no symptoms except for this darn cough. (I've been up since 5 and slept well, and the cough didn't wake me in the night.) Thankful the headache, sore throat, and general sense of exhaustion are gone (although not ruling out an afternoon nap if it creeps back in). Wish people with mild cases were able to get tested b/c I'd love to know if I have it or just a cold. However, Day 5 is generally when cases turn south for people (if they go south at all...). I'm not too worried about that happening, since I haven't had it bad thus far, but tomorrow is my Day 5, so if I am ok after that I will cough I mean breathe a sigh of relief. 😉 Hope all of you are hanging in there!!

    Take it easy - hope you continue to improve!!!
  26. I haven't been able to binge anything, really. Working too hard. Grr. But I am trying to finish up Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt! Then I will start S3 of the Crown! My husband has started watching a couple dystopian scifi shows on netflix (we upgraded our internet a few months ago - when they released their 2nd satellite! so we could stream more at home - AND we just got a new tv for the living room that we finally hooked up to the internet. Welcome to 2020, the Hoya Household :-) Anyway, spouse is enjoying Altered Carbon (I've seen a couple episodes - it's dark & violent - not really my thing - but pretty good. Can't remember name of other show he started watching) And together we're watching Dead To Me - just have the finale left. I think it was renewed but who knows when a 2nd season would appear -I don't think it's been filmed, so.....
