cu in 5, ad pinkpantheroz 4 hours ago

See you then! AdLib 4 hours ago

Hey Murph! AdLib 4 hours ago

See you both in 4….. MurphTheSurf3 4 hours ago

Hey Ad….. MurphTheSurf3 4 hours ago

AdLib 4 hours ago

You enjoying lockkdown? MurphTheSurf3 4 hours ago

I’ve gotten a bit used to it. Getting slightly annoying but okey. How about you. AdLib 4 hours ago

Hi Murph, Ad. Hermits United! pinkpantheroz 4 hours ago

Hey PPO! Me like caves! AdLib 4 hours ago

How are you ad Fergie holding up? AdLib 4 hours ago

I am doing a lot of shopping for the elderly……the Co-op stepped up to do this. I have N95 masks, gloves, eye shields and shop at very odd hours when there are only a handful of people there. I have become an expert in keep my distance and when I get home I do the full decontamination bit. I leave supplies at people’s doors. MurphTheSurf3 4 hours ago

Woman had haircut – can’t go for a drag now! pinkpantheroz 4 hours ago

Hey glenn! AdLib 4 hours ago

Hi Glenn MurphTheSurf3 4 hours ago

Murpph – That’s very cool of you! Helping people out like that! AdLib 4 hours ago

I was trying to describe our little group to a friend and I failed to communicate it I fear. MurphTheSurf3 4 hours ago

Ad….these people hate me until they need me. MurphTheSurf3 4 hours ago

Honestly, Ad, Not too well. Just been out once this week for milk. Fergie is so nervous due to depressed immune system and COPD. We’re washing the bejaysus out of ourselves. pinkpantheroz 4 hours ago

PPO – Yep, I was needing a haircut just before we had to stay at home and businesses closed, at the end of this I will look like an old hippie. Peace, man. AdLib 4 hours ago

There are five in the co-op doing this. We also have a group that is making daily calls to be sure people are ok. MurphTheSurf3 4 hours ago

Evenin’ gents! Sounds like everyone is adjusting to the new “normal”. Murph, good for you for helping out your neighbors. You are a kind and caring man. glenn 4 hours ago

Congrats, Murph. Great service. But stay safe! pinkpantheroz 4 hours ago

PPO,,,I have a very close friend here who has a immuno deficiency disease and she is running very scared. MurphTheSurf3 4 hours ago

PPO–As a wag said recently, we will certainly find out what everyone’s real hair color is now! glenn 4 hours ago

Murph – Hatred usually doesn’t rule over self-preservation…but as we’ve seen, even that’s not a guarantee with Trumpers. AdLib 4 hours ago

Ad, I’ve always wanted a ponytail! pinkpantheroz 4 hours ago

I got my haircut just prior to the shut down so I look dap and debonair! MurphTheSurf3 4 hours ago

Ad…..and the Trumpers are still believers in their Lord and Savior, and I do not mean Jebus. MurphTheSurf3 4 hours ago

Can’t believe peoples lives depend on Governors sucking up to It. pinkpantheroz 4 hours ago

PPO–These certainly are trying times. Tell Fergie we’re always thinking of her. glenn 4 hours ago

IT….and he is a clown too. MurphTheSurf3 4 hours ago

Karma on that pastor down South who died from the ‘hoax’ pinkpantheroz 4 hours ago

PPO….I told my friend, Tracy, about Fergie and she asked be to send her greetings to the down unders. MurphTheSurf3 4 hours ago

glenn, will do. You stay healthy as well. pinkpantheroz 4 hours ago

Ad–You will look like a hippie; I will look like the old gray mare! glenn 4 hours ago

PPO – Sorry ro hear. I know that feeling though. Had to go out for supplies today and I was surprised and worried about how many people were out. Definitely less than usual but wasn’t a ghost town. One moron tried to come up right next to me as I was getting some hand wipes, I had to back away. Then on cleaning goods aisle, people crowding together, just a few but I felt like I had to keep backing away from people ad looking out foor others, like a subtle versio of The Walking Dead and makig sure the zombies don’t get close. AdLib 4 hours ago

PLease thank TrCY FROM fERGIE. pinkpantheroz 4 hours ago

And I will remain debonaire…..and dashing (in my mind anyway) MurphTheSurf3 4 hours ago

PPO–Yeah, sometimes karma is a bitch, right? glenn 4 hours ago

Furniture matching drapes everywhere now, it seems, Murph! pinkpantheroz 4 hours ago

Ad I have a button that is LARGE and reads……Six Feet are Good Feet. Keep Your Distance Please. MurphTheSurf3 4 hours ago

Murph – We had a bad cold over here, just before the crisis got bad, worried we might have it but fortunately not. Still, our immue systems are low now too so we’re very cautious. AdLib 4 hours ago

Ad–I know what you’re saying. I went to the special senior hour for groceries. I thought it was a big mistake in the first place, putting all us vulnerable in one place in a short period of time; but my daughter kinda talked me into it. I think the next time I go to the grocery store, I’m going to try to go at an “off” time. It was way too crowded during “senior hour”. glenn 4 hours ago

Ad, at least in our suburb in MEL, people are staying as far away from each other as much as possible in the supermarkets. Seniors can have exclusive access first hour of the morning. Useless for me as I’m not up till 10 am! pinkpantheroz 4 hours ago

May I suggest to one and all Vitamin C and Zinc (lozenges are best but even caps are ok)…..triggers for the immune system….gins it up. MurphTheSurf3 4 hours ago

PPO – I will now ruin my image with you all but I did have a ponytail years ago. I’ll be getting close to one again very soon! AdLib 4 hours ago

Murph–You will remain debonair and dapper in my mind, too! glenn 4 hours ago

Nah, ad, I kinda pictured you as a vintage hippie already!

pinkpantheroz 4 hours ago

Oh Glenn….you say the kindest things…..and I suspect that you are pretty cute yourself!

MurphTheSurf3 4 hours ago

Murph – The Trumpers may believe in Trump as their savior but if they get COVID-19, as I think will grow big in red states after the blue states have seen theiir peak, he won’t be saving them. AdLib 4 hours ago

PPO–I guess I’m sitting low in my seat tonight, because your comment about the furniture matching drapes went way over my head. ???? glenn 4 hours ago

Ad…but they will still find a way, I think, to blame someone else. MurphTheSurf3 4 hours ago

PPO – Thank goodness at least most states seem to have motivated and concerned governor. Trump would let the whole country die if he felt they weren’t gving him enough respect. AdLib 4 hours ago

Howdy Harleigh… MurphTheSurf3 4 hours ago

Hey Harlegh~ AdLib 4 hours ago

Harleigh! pinkpantheroz 4 hours ago

PPO–I usually don’t get up until that time, either. But I got up early to go to senior hour. Won’t do it again,though! glenn 4 hours ago

hey fplks Harleigh 4 hours ago

glenn, hair coloring ALL over is now the same. Dye’s grown out. pinkpantheroz 4 hours ago

PPO – I think we’re going to see a lot of Karma for Repubs who have made this a political iissue. I think FL is going to be as bad or worse than NY and DeSatis will have blood on his hands. AdLib 4 hours ago

DeSantic AdLib 4 hours ago

DeSantis AdLib 4 hours ago

One of the things my Co-op gang is doing is carrying info sheets from the CDC and Mo. Health Dept. to keep them informed. MurphTheSurf3 4 hours ago

flpriduh is gonna die. Harleigh 4 hours ago

glenn – I will look like an old hippy. I need to gat a VW van and a peace decal on it now. AdLib 4 hours ago

Ad I have friends in FL who call him Satanass MurphTheSurf3 4 hours ago

Murph–Doing Vitamin D, and will get C and Zinc next trip out! Thanks for the suggestion. glenn 4 hours ago

Australia is quarantining ANYONE flying in – hotels for 14 days, no exceptions. pinkpantheroz 4 hours ago

Welcome Glenn. MurphTheSurf3 4 hours ago

Hey Harleigh! How’s it going there in Floriduh? glenn 4 hours ago

Did anyone see the projections for death in India……? 35 million….. MurphTheSurf3 4 hours ago

gonna wipe out the seniors Harleigh 4 hours ago

Murph – Good button. I should have just worn a mask and a t-shirt that says “Contagious”. I would’ve gotten a 20 foot buffer from idiot shppers. AdLib 4 hours ago

PPO–Mine will be salt and pepper; not the same all over. glenn 4 hours ago

Harleigh and so many of the seniors live in enclaves…once it gets in they will not get out. MurphTheSurf3 4 hours ago

Ad…I LUV your idea. Of course it could get you carted off in an ambulance. MurphTheSurf3 4 hours ago

PPO–That’s a good precaution. glenn 4 hours ago

Can anyone tell me why Cruise companies who aren’t American may qualify for money? Did Panama and Bahamas become States without my knowing? pinkpantheroz 4 hours ago

its already happening but reporting is locked down by the nazis in office here Harleigh 4 hours ago

Ad–All the repubs who have supported the idiot in the White House have blood on their hands. glenn 4 hours ago

PPO–I know; that just steams me about the cruise ship companies. Did they actually get money in this new bill? Do you know? glenn 4 hours ago

PPO…..money flows toward those with channels to our corporatists in government. MurphTheSurf3 4 hours ago

glenn – I wondered about that Senior Hour of shopping, if it might be overcrowded and some people not quite old enough would crash in anyway. I went to Target a half hour before closing, not a lot of people, a better time to go but still, here in LA, people coming and going. I am definitiely very sensitive to being close to anyone right now…or as my wife says, being married.

AdLib 4 hours ago

Murph–Just read a headline–didn’t have the time to read the article–but it says that there are several people in The Villages –the famous republican enclave in northern Florida–with coronavirus. Don’t know if they’ve locked it down or not. glenn 4 hours ago

3 cruise ships in limbo off the Coast of Oz. one has had 3 deaths already. pinkpantheroz 4 hours ago

my wife and I had a argument. I die first. She said she gets to. Harleigh 4 hours ago

PPO – They had blue tape “X”s in the Target check out line for people to stand 6 feet apart. Lines were short anyway but didn’t notice for a moment then saw I had been standng on the “X” anyway. AdLib 4 hours ago

Harleigh–right, cause if people don’t know about how many are infected, then you don’t have anything to worry about, right? glenn 4 hours ago

Mar a Lardo is closed. Good. pinkpantheroz 4 hours ago

Ad–LOL! You just have to carve out your own spaces! glenn 4 hours ago

Murph – And the Airborne drik is good too, Vitamin C and zinc and other vitamins which we all need to be supplementing. AdLib 4 hours ago

Harleigh–that’s one way to pass the time when you’re stuck in the house together.

glenn 4 hours ago

Supermarkets here are using a trolley-length to keep separation. Of course you don’t know if the trolley has virus on it. pinkpantheroz 4 hours ago

PPO – I’ve been unusually moderate length haired for some time but I was a teen in the 70’s so always had longer than shorter hair. One ponytail period, hadn’t planned on doing it again! AdLib 4 hours ago

Ad–that’s a good idea with the X’s. Publix, a grocery store, is installing plastic shields for cashiers, but I don’t see where it’s going to do any good. They’re not going to be along the whole counter, so…. glenn 3 hours ago

A big hairdressing chain here, JustCuts has closed for at least 4 weeks. pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

Ad–perhaps it’s time to relive your youth! glenn 3 hours ago

glenn, self-packing is now happening here. pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

PPO–Do you have self check-out too? glenn 3 hours ago

The grocery store I use does not. glenn 3 hours ago

glenn, yes, both types pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

PPO – Cruise companies should NOT get any money, they aren’t American companies when they’re flagged to a foreign country to avoide paying taxes. Screw them. And the boat they rode in on. AdLib 3 hours ago

staff and self-checkout pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

Harleigh – You mean in FL, they’re not reportiing the numbers on infected and dead? AdLib 3 hours ago

PPO–Agreed on the cruise ships. Plus, if they do get money, they should have to pay taxes on the money they got. No deductions, no variations, no exceptions. The full tax on the full amount. rom what I understand glenn 3 hours ago

I see Cousin It wants his scribble on all the checks going out! The man is an utter egomaniac. But MaGATs will think he’s using his own money! pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

glenn – Yep, and all those RW asses who tried to push the “Let Grandma die to help the Dow” crap this week need to get infected and sacrifice for the betterment of society themselves. AdLib 3 hours ago

From what I understand, those who get a check will have to pay taxes on it next year. For that matter, corporations who receive checks should have to pay taxes on the amount they received. Again, no deductions, no variations, no exceptions. glenn 3 hours ago

I think it is safe to assume we won’t ever know the full toll of this, because the WH won’t allow the figures to be accurate. pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

glenn – I’m sure those same elderly in The Viillages who were nodding along with “Seniors should just die to help the economy” are now terrified because it’s not someone else that they hate who would die if people in their community are spreading infecton. AdLib 3 hours ago

Ad–OMG! Can you believe that those assholes are pushing that crap? Let’s see them give the ultimate sacrifice for their country! glenn 3 hours ago

PPO – Why didn’t all cruise ships dock weeks ago??? Why are some still out there? AdLib 3 hours ago

PPO–We may never know if we actually have it eradicated, either. The TLB will just call it “over”, and that will be that. glenn 3 hours ago

glenn – The shields might help cashiers at least from moisture borne infection, people coughing or sneezing..But not total protection from it. AdLib 3 hours ago

They were in transit on round-the world type cruises. They will be landed and quarantined on Rottenest Island, off Perth WA for 2 weeks in special camps. Aussies can then go hoome, Foreigners will have charters to fly them out, those still alive that is. pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

glenn – I am using this quarantine to relive my youth to a degree, I think we all should. Why not? AdLib 3 hours ago

Ad–Yup! It couldn’t happen to better people. They should make their coffins are wrapped in the flag, so everyone knows how patriotic they are. I know that’s mean, but I just can’t believe anyone could even think that way. The economy will recover; it may not be soon, but it will recover. Those that die are still dead; they will never recover. glenn 3 hours ago

I am really trying to avoid touching carts and markets. Ordered ahead and had to make two trips to the car to carry everything but fine with that than touchig a cart. AdLib 3 hours ago

Ad, right on, man! Get the Vinyl out and splurge! Lava lamps, psychodelic shit and bongs! Wheeee! pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

Ad–Speaking of youth, how is your daughter doing with staying home? I miss going to my granddaughter’s soccer games, and she misses playing them. I’m sure your daughter is missing her softball, too. glenn 3 hours ago

glenn – No money for cruise chips uness they reregister and pay taxes in the US for at least 5 years. AdLib 3 hours ago

glenn – Nope, many of the payouts, to people and corps, will be free moey, not have to be paid back or taxed. AdLib 3 hours ago

AD, they should also register in US ports, so the US Maritime Unions can keep them honest and comply with US code. pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

Ad–as for reliving my youth; the quarantine is not too different for me. I was home most of the time anyway. I do miss going out for my late lunches/early dinners. I used to go out at least twice a week. Now I have to prepare/cook all of my meals! Haven’t done that in years, even when my husband was alive. He did most of the cooking. glenn 3 hours ago

PPO – I would hope once Biden is in the WH, there will be a commission on what happened (on Russia and 2016 too) so we learn the truth about how horrible Trump was and how we can prevent this kind of disaster from happening again. AdLib 3 hours ago

PPO–Sounds like a plan to me…for the cruise ships, I mean. glenn 3 hours ago

Ad–I’m glad to hear that people won’t be taxed on the money. glenn 3 hours ago

glenn – Don’t know if you saw my satire article about that, it’s here: https://planetpov.com/2020/03/25/press-release-fox-news-to-launch-reality-series-to-help-economy-dying-for-dollars/ AdLib 3 hours ago

glenn – We’ll kow because states aren’t playing Trump’s game, they know they can’t afford to (and they’re not sociopaths). AdLib 3 hours ago

Ad, I hope Joe does that too. I shudder to think that IT could get away with -now- literally murder and his mob hang on to their ill gotten gains. pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

Ad–as far as this disaster is concerned, I’m pretty sure we had a good plan for this type of disaster, which Obama put in place. Biden could just reinstate that plan. As for the russia disaster, we have the Mueller report, which the TLB and his toady, Barr managed to squash. At least the Mueller report would be a start to see who to investigate more. glenn 3 hours ago

PPO – There should have been a required docking for all cruise ships after the pandemic was recognized and eople should have been able to fly home from wherever they were. iTravel insurance, which most folks have on cruises would have covered a lot, other people should have been covered in some way, insurance, etc. AdLib 3 hours ago

Welll…it took awhile but I am back. MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

Ad–true, at least the states are keeping records. glenn 3 hours ago

PPO – Absolutely, the black light and tie-dyed posters are out! Hippy Party is on! AdLib 3 hours ago

Glad to have you back, Murph. glenn 3 hours ago

Ad, I don’t know if you have read the same, but Travel insurers and Life Companies are trying to void cover by invoking ‘Act of God’ Clauses! Bastards! pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

Ad–will read your article tomorrow. glenn 3 hours ago

PPO–How can it be an act of God? I thought it was a liberal hoax? Do insurance companies cover those? glenn 3 hours ago

Well, gents, time for me to call it a night. Stay safe everyone. Chat with you all next week. glenn 3 hours ago

glenn – There are too manny folks dealing with tragedy so I file this as a minor disappointment. My daughter’s HS team was ranked 20th in CA and ranked 1st in their CIF division, favored to win it all this year. 12-1 record before the season was halted. Now, doesn’t look like they’ll play anymore this season. As to the HS online, she hates it and has to connect every day with classmates too figure things out, the teachers aren’t doing the best job with it. AdLib 3 hours ago

Act of God is an accepted statement in the Insurance world, covering the kind of event that could never reasonably be expected to occur. They are trying it on. pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

Where’d you go, Murph? AdLib 3 hours ago

goodnight, glenn pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

Good night Glenn. I just finished catching up on the conversation since I got dropped on my head by ISP. MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

Ad, if they close the season, won’t your Daughter’s team be the Champs? pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

AD. ISP having a bad night so I switched over to my phone’s hot spot. MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

Ad–yeah, that sucks. I feel sorry for all the high school seniors this year, too. No Senior days, no proms, no trips, no graduations. And yeah, teachers weren’t prepared for something like this. It’s hard to set up online classes if you’ve never done it before, plus they are usually dependent on some website that may or may not work. My granddaughter is complaining about all the homework she has. I tell her at least it gives her something to do. glenn 3 hours ago

‘Night all! glenn 3 hours ago

Ad….one of the coop members has a son who is an extraordinary baseball player and the same thing happened to him. Crushed. And he too hates on line school. MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

PPO – Yes, insurance companies are evil sometimes, especially when they need to pay on policies but this is not a act of God, which is a sudden disaster. This was buildig for sometime, happened on another cruise ship so no act of God hit all cruise shps. Illness is one reason for the policy covering people, they should have been covered. AdLib 3 hours ago

Murph – I think that’s the situation for many student athletes, this is a very depressing situation, between not seeing friends and not getting to play or for Seniors, not getting to tour colleges and have a graduation. AdLib 3 hours ago

I was saying before the Internet Gods dropped me on my head that our local congressman wanted to visit the co-op but we said know. None of us, GOP and Dems alike, said no…not interested in being props. MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

Glad everyone there was on the same page about being campaign props. AdLib 3 hours ago

Murph, was he at all visible before? pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

How disgusting is Trump the way he is openly exploitinng the suffering and deaths of Americans for his political gain. And I’m not bothered by polls moving up for Trump now, I know where the economy and the disaster is going to be months away from these polls and Trump’s BS assurances that it’s all going to be just perfect soon. AdLib 3 hours ago

Ad….one high school in our area plans to have all students get caps and gowns in the mail, and then have a photo take via their uplink…then they will take part in a virtual graduation with their photos popping up as their names are called. There will be speakers broadcast from their homes etc. Sounds REALLY LAME to me……I think they should officially graduate them on time but have some kind of ceremonial gathering at the end of summer before they go off to wherever….early August, if we are out of quarantine. MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

Ad, Fergies grand-neice has been accepted into Notre Dame, but can’t visit. SHe has also been accepted in 3 other colleges, one with 100% Scholarship, but can’t move pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

PPO—the Congressman was not at all visible…ignored us or complained about “do gooders” MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

The arse has dropped out of the Dow again! How can Trumps figures be so high? pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

Ad….presidents normally get BIG BUMPS…he got a very small one. MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

I think it’s telling that Trump has tried to stop the commercial that quotes all of his lies including this being a “hoax”. He knows he will be hanged on his failed response and his constant lies about a life and death matter. AdLib 3 hours ago

PPO…..how can his numbers be so high….STUPID IS AS STUPID DOES.

MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

Murph – I know they’re trying but that is very lame. Poor Seniors, they will always have lost out on a graduation they always counted on having. Really feel bad for them. AdLib 3 hours ago

AD LIB from your lips to the Election God’s ears. MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

I have already heard there is a Boycott on line being organized. I like my party, event idea better. Give them a time to celebrate and say goodbye. MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

Ad, how can he stop the Ad. they are his own words. And now, 30+ years and VP vetting later, JOe is being smeared as a groper. Looking at the current POC , they can talk. pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

PPO – How frustrating! But Fergie’s grand-niece will at least know where she wants to go, she’s obviously a wonderful student to have all those options. The Seniors and Juniors who don’t have a schol locked in though, they’re in very tough shape. AdLib 3 hours ago

Sory, Ad, she hasn’t decided and really cant right now. pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

PPO Where is this niece from…Oz? MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

Boston, Mass! pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

Murph and PPO – Yes, polls usually rise much higher than Trump’s have. Bush 1 was at 91% after the Gulf War, Bush 2 was in the 80%s, Trump is barely above 50%. It’s a long way down from here and he’s starting so low. AdLib 3 hours ago

Boston! Oh! That surprised me. MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

Ad…..and that 50 percent is shaky….there are other polls that put him in the low 40’s MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

And Govs are getting much higher bounces than Trump, Trump’s in the 50%s, Cumo’s response is rated in the 80%s. Newsom too. AdLib 3 hours ago

Fergie’s brother went to the USA as a child, like her. He was in Boston and his children grew up there. His son’s Daughter, Maureen Fergie is the apple of their eye. pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

Frankly….if people want to get the Jackass in Chief off of his ass they need to shake his tree….and lower polls would do that nicely. MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

PPO – Funny, the school offering my daughter a sports scholarship is in Boston! She wants to go there. AdLib 3 hours ago

Ad…interesting about gov’s. MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

WEll, folks, dying for a coffee, so I’ll sign off. Stay safe, y’heah? pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

Fergie is from Boston? How did she connect with you? Don’t answer if I am being intrusive. MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

Rats! PPO is leaving…..I may never know. MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

PPO – That’s the thing, Trump can’t stop ads just playing his own quotes! He’s indicting himself!! AdLib 3 hours ago

Have a nice Coffee PPO MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

Fegie was born in Dublin and on the passing of her father when she was 9, her mother moved the family to firstly, Buffalo, then Fergie and her mum mpoved to San Francisco. Her brother spread out over Boston, buffalo and also SF. Fergie graduated USC and joined United Airlines, who xferred her to Sydney, where we met. Phew! pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

Murph – My prediction is that the pandemic will last into the Summer, thanks to the Red states doing little to prevent spread, blue states will peak in the next 2 months then red states after. The economy won’t recover until 2021 anyway so Trump will have nothing but lies and hate to run on, no stock market, economy or employment numbers. He will lose badly as support collapses to just his cultists. AdLib 3 hours ago

Well…..the conversation appears to have stopped….so I will hang a bit longer and then bid adieu! MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

PPO! WOW WOW WOW….what a story and so succinctly told!!!!! MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

That’s a rough chidhood Fergie had, losiing her father when she was so yooung. But an adventure of a life that brought you two together! AdLib 3 hours ago

Now need a lie down! Cheers all pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

Rest well and say hii to Fergie for us! AdLib 3 hours ago

Ad….I hate the ideas you suggest here but I find them compelling…..I believe you are correct. MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

will do pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

Best to you and Fergie, PPO MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

Well, Ad…it is just you and me. I really do not know what I would do if this forum did not exist. It is a rare place of real camaraderie and good sense. MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

Murph – I get no satisfaction from saying this but I am hearing the same from other medical folks. The political decision to not protect their people by Red State Governors can only have one result…unless this is all a Dem hoax as they claim. So what other result could there be? AdLib 3 hours ago

I mentioned India earlier. There are vast areas where the best medical response will be far too weak. The global devastation could be daunting beyond our imaginations. MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

Thanks Murph, I feel the same way. It is a port in the storm, Vox is. Look forward it every week, it’s reassuring that many good folks who are thoughtful are out there everywhere…but these folks at The Planet are the best! AdLib 3 hours ago

Murph – I don’t see how we can avoid an economic situation at least between The Great Recession and The Depression. And so much borrowing, how will all these added trillions in debt affect the economy? AdLib 3 hours ago

One of my friends has a daughter who is a pediatric doctor working in a children’s hospital. As of today, they are sealing off wards so they can take other patients……..I do hope they do a fantastic job keeping the kids safe. MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

Trump will once again bankrupt the entity he “leads”. AdLib 3 hours ago

Ad….ah yes, the debt. Trump has thrown away trillions and now he is being forced to ok what is necessary. MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

Ad…yes…Trump and Bankruptcy go hand in hand. MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

The snowball effect of crowded hospitals will be bad. People will still have heart attacks, car accidents, etc. When there are no ICU beds left open…people will die, a lot of people who wouldn’t have died otherwise. AdLib 3 hours ago

It is interesting that the two hospital ships wil be used to take non COVID 19 patients to free up beds on land. MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

And this won’t be the end, I have no doubt that Trump will try to throw trillions more at Wall Street and voters to get the economy up and convince them to vote for him. It won’t work in either case though. AdLib 3 hours ago

What did you think of the House vote today……Massey – what a detestable jerk. MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

Trump’s signing today…no Dems even invited……they would not have come…..pelosi burned his ass in an interview tonight MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

I’m glad that the hospital ships will be deployed…though Trump claimed they were already deployed. But yes, how ideal will that experience be? It’s needed but far from desireable. AdLib 3 hours ago

Massey should be recalled ASAP. What a self-important monster. AdLib 3 hours ago

The House will never support a Wall Street give away. I hope he is cooked. MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

The hospital ships are bare bones wards in terms of creature comforts. MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

Well, it is late and I am committed to my sleep so my waking is productive. We should chat at some time….are you a Facetime guy. I love it. It is just easier to converse. MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

Screw them. AdLib 3 hours ago

I think Moscow has gven voters enough reasons now to take him down. And maybe even Lindsey Graham too as he fought against working people getting money. AdLib 3 hours ago

Graham has been unusually silent. MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

Well, in any case, let’s talk next week and catch up! AdLib 3 hours ago

Yes indeed! Goodnight, friend! MurphTheSurf3 3 hours ago

Yes but Graham surfaced by trying to block the Senate vote. AdLib 3 hours ago
