Yep, that is true.  There are guys called Axle Surgeons that go to a stranded truck with a broken axle and fix them up 24X7.  I'd be putting them on the essential business list word

my son ordered 60 items from a grocer through Instacart,  They delivered 6 items, all fruit and vegetables at 9:30 AM.  He is PO'd. Big grocer  Did not delivery milk, bread, flour - basic stuff we know was on the shelf in the AM.  When something is not in stock they are supposed to text you with an alternative....not a single text....just...I'm shopping for you....I'm on the way.  As soon as he received the on the way message my son figured something was wrong.

Gooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooood morning everybody!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Where we live is rural enough that we are behind the times. No Instacart. If I didn't get some groceries, they were either out or I forgot them.

Have a tremendous day word!

Instacart owns the delivery and curbside pick-up service over here with agreements with all of the supermarkets.  Now I hear they are staging a job action for hazard pay and better benefits.  It was a totally unreliable service before the strike now they are useless.  The kids offered to shop for us.  We're both in our 60s and my wife cares for her 89 year old mom who is even higher risk than we are.The supermarkets are the primary means of virus conveyance now.  Research out of U Nebraska suggests the virus may float airborne, If true ,all of the stay at home edicts are useless if your one trip out for food must be to a virus infested market.

Have a wonderful day word!

Yeah, hoping someone comes and says this virus was all a joke.

Fingers crossed 2 days in a row with fewer Pos tests in both NY and NJ.  Looks the same for Washington too..  Hope it isn't due to fewer test being available.  Drive in test sites must have appointments now, not picking up the low severity cases that don't qualify. Cant speak for the inner cities but suburbs are ghost towns except for supermarkets.

That's good news! Hopefully the trend continues to decrease. Not ghost town level here but a very diminished capacity. I enjoy the reduced traffic.

And it's Friday!

Have a fantastic day word!

A woman contacted my wife about the masks that she and her friends are sewing. She posted a nice little story on Linked in.
