Well it's official Ladies & Gentlemen, this morning the 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19)) was declared a global threat by the W.H.O.
Worldwide, countries are blocking movement, public gatherings, sporting events, closing schools & generally freaking out
But here at home in the good old USA, we have it under control with the due diligence of the great Donald J. Trump, right?
So, in other words, we're fucked.
I live approximately 40 miles from the largest concentration of the virus discovered on the East Coast, one where the Governor of NY sent the National Guard yesterday to help contain the spread of the virus.
I also read this morning that it is recommended to stockpile 2 weeks worth of provisions in your homes now in case of mandatory quarantines, and this was from a Dr that worked at the CDC. ( I'm going to HD now & buy a freezer :) )
So, I'm gonna die soon probably because it seems to favor men over 60 that smoke & drink & my wife contacts 100's of individuals daily in her line of work, but hey, we all gotta go sometime, right?
Anyway, I wish you all good luck & try to stay safe
Peace out :)

Well Jimmy there was never a better time to quit drinking and smoking, you'll be highly motivated, use the patch so you don't go insane. Take vitamin D supplements for fuck sake! Lock your wife in the basement and put a cot down there and some food in a bowl for her, hopefully it has an outside entrance...

Why People Give Unsolicited Advice (Though No One Listens)
How many people really take unsolicited advice?

In my industry (live events) everyone is suffering. No work, all events cancelled. I'm one of the lucky few who has a contract, and can keep working for the time being. Good time to do maintenance.

It's been my experience that thinking you might die is a great motivator for change, most older people are thinking of ways to fortify themselves against this virus, so is Jimmy, he's thinking about it, so am I and taking measures. I'm gonna be preaching preparedness, and try to help anyway I can, I cannot do otherwise.

Not my style my friend.
Too old now too change my bad habit's & what would it gain me?
A few more years of living in misery?
Nah, I'll go down with the ship :)

Go down swinging with a smile on yer face, we all gotta go sometime I guess.

But ya know as an ex smoker myself, cigarettes never got me high, just a physical addiction and a habit to be broken in a few weeks, the patch spreads the pain. Hard to do unless ya also quit drinking for a spell too though, your life and your choices, we'd just like to have ya around for a spell as would your family and other friends. Good luck with whatever ya wanna do, survive anyway you can, just like everybody else.
How old are ya now Jimmy? I'm 65, but my health isn't too bad.

I just turned 64 in January & my 1st shrink told me I'd never see 40 if I continued to lead the life I led & I was 16 then & proved that useless lying sack of shit wrong, so the way I figure it I've been living on borrowed time anyway.
Used to smoke cigs but switched to a pipe 30 years ago
It's just part of my DNA to drink & smoke & do drugs.
Always has & always will be, that is my curse (or is it?)
I'm content, that's all I know :)
