Bad Combinations?

On the way home from work this afternoon, I stopped by WalMart and Sam’s Club to drop off some prescriptions and pick up a couple that Jan’s doctor had sent over directly.

I noticed that, though people were exiting straight out as usual, the entrance was roped off into a line leading to the side away from the exit. I thought that this was just a way to keep people more separated, but when I got home and went online, I found it’s a little different.

It seems that Walmart is going to start limiting the number of customers allowed into each store at one time, that is, 5 people for each 1000 square feet of store space, about 20% of normal capacity.

Of course I don’ t see how they’re going to queue people up in the line, since the length of the rope line would only allow about 10 people in the line at one time.

So do the rest of them just wander around the parking lot or what?

While I was in WalMart, I saw some people wearing gloves, some people wearing masks, some wearing both, and one person wearing what was either some sort of weird protective suit, or more likely a ex-large white Hefty garbage bag.

Getting home about 4pm, Jan and I got right back on the storage shed, in case it did rain all weekend as forecast.

I got the roof rollers installed, and with a little adjustment, the roof moves back and forth very smoothly. After that it was only a few minutes to get the doors installed and screwed down.

It’s really nice how the sliding roof lets you get to the rear of the shed without stooping over.

Now all we lack is to screw the walls down to the flooring and install some inside bracing and the door hardware. And then we’re done.

Once it’s done, Jan and I will slide it back onto the rocks behind the concrete patio. I’m looking at getting a 4’ x 8’ x 3/4” sheet of marine-grade ground-contact pressure-treated plywood as a base for that. That way I won’t need any pavers to to keep it off the rocks.

Bad Combinations?

The FBI has reported that the month of March saw more background checks for gun purchases since the program started in 1967.

And for the same period, alcohol sales are up over 50%.

And now that everyone is supposed to stay sheltered at home, it’s being reported that there is a looming condom shortage in our future, since they’re mostly made overseas.

In addition, it seems that the latest item showing up on the ‘shortage’ list is hair coloring. With all the ladies not able to make their monthly hair appointments, it seems like some things are coming to ‘light’, getting to the ‘root’ of the problem, so to speak.

On the HCQ front:

1. An international poll of over 6200 doctors in 30 countries report that HCQ is the best and most widely-used drug to combat the WuFlu.

2. India is apparently all in on the HCQ cure since they’ve ordered 100 million tablets for their citizens.

3. Australia had eliminated all regulatory requirements to import as much HCQ as they can.

4. And lastly, here’s a guy who was in a medically induced coma for 10 days, was given HCQ and had a complete turn-around.

I mentioned the other day about doctors and nurses using HCQ prophylactically, I.e. as a preventative. In this area, HCQ is also routinely prescribed for patients with lupus and rheumatoid arthritis, and no one has been able to find anyone taking HCQ for these other illnesses, who had contracted the WuFlu.

And in one of those off-the-wall items, researchers in Australia have found that Ivermectin seems to be active against the WuFlu. And you can buy Ivermectin at any drug store, at WalMart, or even at Tractor Supply.

In fact if you have kids, you’ve probably dosed them with this a few times.

Ivermectin is the active ingredient in many of the head lice shampoos. And also in dog and cat dewormers, too.

So it’s a Two-Fer. No WuFlu and no worms, either.

And I won’t even mention sheep dip.

    Wow…you mention animal products…hmm, another good reason to go see a vet for any medical issues…might beat the so called doctors in our area (so far as we have found yet at least!!)

    You’re back to WuFlu…  what happened to KungFlu ?

  3. Ivermectin seems to be a dewormer for cats, dogs, and horses…not sure I would try that one.  Hope that establish a cure soon so things can get back to normal. I miss our RV trips.
