Went Grocery Shopping Today...

I usually use Pea-Pod, Stop & Shop's delivery service.
Sometimes it's hit or miss when I order stuff and, there's a few things they don't offer, that the store carries, so off I went.

The store seemed slightly less crowded than usual.

Got what I came for, then took a walk around.

Absolutely NO water by the gallon , 3 gallon container, or bottle. I have a water cooler that takes 5 gal. jugs.
There were none on the shelves in the water aisle, but there were 10 next to the machine where you turn in the empties.

No Tp or Paper towels. No hand sanitizer at all.

Very little on the shelves of the meat dept, never seen it like that.

Frozen foods weren't too awful, most of the dinners I like were gone.
Plenty of Pizza's & Ice Cream, ( The college kids will be happy.)

Medicine aisle was depleted, but still had a few of every product.

Come autumn, I begin stocking up on non perishables, fresh meat, (gets frozen), milk & bread, (Also frozen), xtra food for the pets, etc, just in case the weather gets bad & I can't get a delivery.

I have a refrigerator in the kitchen, 1 in the garage, and an upright freezer, also in the garage.
My tap water sucks, that's why I buy bottled water, but if I run out, I'll use the tap water.

Anyway, that's the report from East Central Connecticut.

The U.K. has a population of around 66 million. And their average annual death toll from flu is estimated at 8000. One of the key science advisors on dealing with the pandemic stated that if they can restrict the death toll from Covid 19 to just 20,000, it will be great performance.

I think at this point we can call it - the dems are a bunch whiny crying pussy ass bitches.

I am more likely to be forcibly raped by a man than get corna virus.

Well that's very possible considering your friendship with Stevo.?

Look out for the "Magic Beer" if you visit him. You will wake up with an achy butt. :eek:

Update for our region in Canada. Bars and restaurants with capacity 50+ are to close entirely or limit occupancy. Yesterday after work, stopped for groceries for dinner as we often do. Wife wanted chicken. NOPE .... sold out. Today, the floors in our office should be cleaned with a simple vinegar mixture and we are almost out, I bought the last 4 liters of vinegar, I think in the city. Hope I don't run out of TP, there isn't a single roll left anywhere. Sani-wipes, hand sanitizer, anti-bacterial hand soap, any anti-bacterial cleaning solutions, the shelves are bare. While looking for floor cleaner this AM, I figured I should pick up a few things. Got 1 of the 2 last bags of general purpose flour, my wife bakes bread at home. Got the last pack of chicken thighs, guess what we're having for dinner. Got 2 packs of ground beef, this should easily get us into and past the weekend. What is the matter with people? In finding the flour a young woman asked, kind of sheepishly, if I was taking them both, she wanted to make banana bread for her kids. Looks like the kids, at least, will get banana bread. What a sh1t show out there! How much stuff do these hoarders need?Now there are people panicking that they can't get toilet paper. When you ask them if they need any, they'll tell you not yet, but they will sometime. Where does this mentality come from? I'd get it if these people were ever in some way rationed, but if everyone just kept their cool, there's more than enough for everyone.

My rant for this morning.

Aaaaand there goes Nevada…..

Gov. Steve Sisolak on Tuesday ordered a sweeping shutdown of nonessential businesses, including casinos and retail stores, for 30 days, a move that would have been unthinkable weeks ago before the novel coronavirus wreaked its havoc around the world.

Do like Trump and all big investors, with the stock market tanking lately.......BUY! BUY! BUY!
Every share of stock sold requires a purchaser. Said another way, if there were no purchasers then no stock could be sold.
