Murder, She Planned?

Jan and I went out about 11:30 to get in some work on the shed.

The first step was easy. Just screw the two pieces of the gable together and then fasten it to the rear wall.

Off to the left you can see the on-the-site supervisor keeping a close eye on things.

But after the gable, everything slowed down, a lot. After fastened the two black roof sections together along the ridge, I then started to assemble the metal frame that strengthens the roof. But no matter how I tried to fit it together, it just wouldn’t line up.

I twisted and turned the pieces trying to make it match the manual without a lot of success. Until I finally figured that the diagram in the manual was printed as a mirror image, instead as the way it actually should be. Once I figured that out it went pretty smoothly and we ended up with this.

We went in for a while when the sun came out, but then later in the afternoon, the clouds rolled back in so we headed back out to work on the front part of the roof, the part that will slide back and forth on a track. And we ended up with this.


Next up, for this weekend if it doesn’t rain, is to install those tracks and get the roof working. Then all we’ll lack is putting the doors and latches on.

So hopefully the weather will hold.

About three weeks ago I first mentioned the possibility that HydroxyChloroquine/ Chloroquine was showing great promise as a treatment for WuFlu, even for patients who were in comas and considered as terminal, and also as a preventative.

One guy was on a ventilator, and still couldn’t breathe. His doctors had told him there was nothing more they could do, and he had pretty much said his goodbyes to his family. But then a friend got in touch with him about HCQ and he talked a doctor into giving it to him. A nurse gave it to him in a IV about 7:30 pm and he fell asleep. But when he woke up about 4:45 in the morning, he could breath again and a little later he was off the vent.

And so far, every clinical trial has come back showing that HCQ will bring the WuFlu to a screeching halt, even for patients on vents.

But the best results seem to come by using a trio of drugs like this.

400mg Twice a Day on Day 1
   200mg Twice a Day on Day’s 2-5

Azithromycin (Z-pack)
   500mg Once a Day for 5 Days

Zinc Sulfate
   220mg Once a Day for 5 Days

In fact, Michigan’s Governor, who completely banned the use of HCQ for the treatment of the WuFlu, has now reversed her decision and is begging for supplies of HCQ. Maybe a relative has it now?

But then there was the story about the couple that supposedly took Aquarium Fish Tank Cleaner because it had something about HydroxyCholoquine on the label. Turns out it was a different form of HCQ, a poison form, and the husband died, and the wife ended up in the hospital.

But as Paul Harvey used to say, “And now for the rest of the story.”

Turns out that the police are now investigating the case as a possible homicide. The couple didn’t just go out and get some Tank Cleaner at PetSmart. They used to own aquariums, so it was just leftover, sitting on the shelf.

And now it comes out that the wife had been treated over the years for severe paranoia  and depression, and had been talking about divorcing her husband since 2012. In fact she had been arrested in the past for beating her husband . . . once with a birdhouse. In addition she said they were having severe financial problems.

But wait, there’s more.

It turns out that when she and her dead husband were checked at the hospital, he had over 4 times the amount of fish tank cleaner in his system than was in hers.

Murder, She Planned?

Wrapping up, I’m curious how we’re going to get out of this, and at what point? I mean, according to all the CDC charts and graphs I’ve seen, this is not going to go away anytime soon. Taper off, yes. Go away, no.

Yes, at some time the curve will ‘flatten’ and then start downhill. But according to Dr. Fauci, it’s not going to go away completely, but hang around in the background, probably killing only 100’s per week instead of 1000’s, and then resurrect this fall for a second round. And then probably a third round in the fall of 2021. At least that’s what Dr. Birx says.

And FWIW, the second round of the 1918 Spanish (So Spanish is OK, but Chinese is racist?) was much worse than the first pass, apparently due to the virus mutating along the way.

So my question is, what’s the magic number? How few deaths are going to be OK?

During the seasonal flu of 2018-2019 we were losing an average of 1,500 people a week.

It really bothers me that we don’t have a definite goal, a definite number when we’ll say, “OK, everything can go back to normal.”

I think everyone would be much more likely to follow all the Stay-At-Home, Social Distancing, Keeping Your Business Closed routines, if they had a goal to look forward to. Not some nebulous “When Things Are Better”.

But that’s just me.

    Ooooh I didn’t hear that about the couple that took the fish tank cleaner stuff.  Interesting turn of events!

    Wanting the definite number is the Engineer talking

    The Chinese have a real good PR firm!

    I’m guessing things will be “better” when they don’t keep refrigerator trucks behind the NYC hospitals to store the bodies.

    I’m guessing things will be “better” when they can free people to go back to work after they had & survived the virus (I believe they have gotten the checking process down to that).

    Then again I’m guessing that things will never be like they were, I do wonder what the new normal will look like.
