This is the same country who knew alcohol would someday be legal again.
The one's in the know set up malted milk factories.
They made malted milk for years.
When the bill was passed to make booze legal again, they flipped a switch, and badda bing, beer!

BTW: I have yet to have anyone refuse the Purell samples.
About two weeks ago when I filled up the Jeep, the guy next to me was pumping his gas while eating a chili dog he got from the station. I'm thinking that ordinarily that is a dumb thing to do, but right now that is just downright stupid.

Damn Chili Dog looked good too.

When you get out in to West Texas, social distancing becomes pretty easy.

In East Texas, our county is basically rural with the largest town being just under 5K people. We still have no reported cases with the counties around us having 1 case each. That is except for Smith county to our south which has 16 cases. Smith county contains Tyler which is a medical hub with two hospital complexes and they won't say where those 16 cases came from, certainly not all from Tyler.

Bob, back in the stoneage when I worked for a living, I mentored young, new hire engineers and this was one of the hardest thing to teach them. They were all very smart and very computer savvy but you had to beat in to them that, "When the observed data doesn't match the computer model, THE MODEL IS WRONG". Computer models are wonderful tools for playing "what if" but you have to understand their limitations. You have to use common sense.

That's why I am always skeptical when people flash graphs in front of me when I don't know where the data comes from and how it is being used. I'm old school.

My wife got transferred back to Dallas in 1985 and we lived there for 13 years. When she retired we moved about 100 miles east to Mineola in Wood County. It's where her family comes from and there are still plenty of them around here. We live about 6 miles east of town on 13 acres.

Yep we were neighbors for a year or 2. I liked that area from what I remember not to humid ,not to hot and not to cold but some really bad thunder and lightning storms. The girls wern't to bad to look at either. I was there on a construction project in Fort Worth at a General Motors plant. When I was there the economy was very bad after the oil crash. I returned to Ca. in 1987 when it was still normal here.

I never made it that far east in Texas, the one thing I kick myself in the ass for is when lived in Texas as a young man I never made it to New Orleans. I did go all over Texas though, when I went to Houston and South padre Island 1st the humidity almost killed me then when we got to the town of South Padre Island I got pulled over within 5 minutes and quizzed by the local police, we went home after that.

So it's starting to get personal. My niece was in college in Ottawa. One of her classmates went to bestbuy to buy a TV and is now in the hospital being treated for coronavirus. Instead of getting tested there or self quarantining, my family urged her to travel home to get away from it. She's now driven herself as far as here and is now at the hospital getting checked as she developed a deep cough on her way home. She lives 7 hours west of here. Ottawa is 14 hrs east.

That is hitting close to home. I hope she tests out OK or at least gets mild symptoms.
