Re: No shortages?

Strange item, but a family member told me that they went to three separate Grocery Stores and couldn't find any Bounce Dryer Sheets anywhere. Kind of a Strange item to suddenly come up short. Noticed a couple grocery stores with signs limiting customers to a single package of paper towels. I haven't...

Re: No shortages?

When all this really started to hit the fan there was a worldwide shortage on PPE's, now they are everywhere, most are mid to low end quality but at least they are now out there. Still a massive shortage of Aluminum (maybe due to U.S. tariff issues) causing companies like Coke and Pepsi to limit the...

Re: Is It Over Yet?

I'm currently located in Manitoba. Ten days or so ago we were down to a Single active case in the entire province, now in less then two weeks we've jumped up to 74 active cases. A first wave that won't die? A second wave? Call it what you want. The fun isn't over yet. The Canada/U.S. Border will be ...

Re: No shortages?

Got a call from relatives in "The City" saying that they can't find any Lysol Wipes or Toilet paper in the stores and wanted to know if I could get them any. I'm in what I would call a small town (although its considered a city) and Toilet paper is readily available on store shelves, Lysol...

Re: Is It Over Yet?

Hong Kong is reporting a third wave of Corona Virus hitting now. Some Southern U.S. States are considering going back into lockdown as second wave is hitting hard. So for many this is far from over, but, as I've said before, as long as Canada keeps its borders closed. No big deal. Our numbers have b...

Re: Is It Over Yet?

I've seen the 24 hour Covid Channel, I can't be bothered with it. As far as I'm concerned it's all media type and scare tactics. That being said my parents watch news excessively and as a result take all this Covid stuff very serious. They know I don't buy into all the fear mongering, but I do assur...

Re: What has this Pandemic taught you?

It made me realize the importance of Preparedness vs Being a Grey Man. I explain... Prior to the pandemic, we had a a few dozen disposable "surgical" masks and a couple boxes of 50 or so N95 masks. I also still have my issued gas mask as well as a 3M full face respirator (with different f...

Re: No shortages?

Since getting into ham radio, I've had an interest in building electronics. I get all my components from China. I know, buy Canadian etc...but I'm not paying $1.00 for a resistor when I can get them for pennies out of China. Suppliers are now really really slow to fill orders and some are cancellin...

Contagion 2011 & Corona Virus 2020

The 2011 Movie Contagion oddly mirrors the 2020 Corona Virus Pandemic. Its almost as if the Writer looked into a crystal ball and saw what was coming. Fortunately reality in this case was much kinder then in the movie. If you haven't seen this movie, it's definitely worth looking up. IMDB Link: http...

Re: Is It Over Yet?

I think it's long over, its just being hyped by the media to keep the fear factor/ratings up. All the models that are showing high possibilities of even worse second and third waves are based on the 1918 Spanish Flu Pandemic, but seem to fail to recognize that our medical technology and medical/infe...
