    How to make a facemask with a bandanna and 2 hair-ties

    Thanks for posting this. I actually though dust masks were useless when it came to infectious diseases, and I'm thinking of making a cloth mask myself. One person was stating that it could be made from t-shirt material, folded over - with a single piece of paper towel in between the t-shirt...

    Coronavirus Should We Worry? By CHJ

    Yeah, and there's a good chance we will know those people, assuming we are lucky enough to survive ourselves.... This is - by far - the very first time in my life that I am nervous, and suddenly returning to my faith.

    Coronavirus Should We Worry? By CHJ

    Gotcha - and II also saw how my calculation was way way off, if I was to go by a percentage based on Closed Cases [cases where there has been an outcome one way of the othere...] it would have been these two figures added together below, and then you can compare the Recovered to Deaths, which is...

    Coronavirus Should We Worry? By CHJ

    @Older Than Dirt, do you have any opinion on this stat here ?? I mean, if Iam reading this right, that's a death rate of 50 % correct ?? I just want to be sure I am understanding this correctly. I'll be back here later, as it's play time in the garden with Loki the dog now........ But if that...

    Old Textile Factory. Athens, GA

    Good for you !! I took time off my job so I can help out my folks, they are old and if they catch this virus it will kill them both. These pictures are great, some of the images remind me of the north end of Canal Street in Shelton CT, which still has a couple of old abandoned industrial...

    Coronavirus Should We Worry? By CHJ

    Well, yes... I can see that but at the same time - that won't be known until maybe this time next year. Many tout low death percentages based on total cases vs. total deaths, but to me that is misleading - because one cannot predict what the outcome will be of the total cases, while if one goes...
