    Well stated (as always). This virus ordeal might improve many social issues in many places, let us hope that such is the outcome.

    Wow that is super nice...I was fortunate enough to have a mask from my last visit to my Doctor's office many months ago.

    I dance...put Chick Webb or Benny or Duke whatever else and dance. It raises immunity and I feel strong

    It's like a regular martini. But you drink it at home, alone, in your sweats.

    Well good for you, next time, when we are finally allowed to venture out, I shall remember you once we are back on the dance floor.

    While in the service I recall vinegar was recommended to ward off malaria and assorted swamp fever,
    an elixir once drunk by Francis Marion, the famed Swamp Fox of the American Revolution.
    The Brits recommended not swimming or bathing in the jungle, allowing a crust to form over which shielded
    mosquitoes and other skeeter bites, endometriosis and a lot of other bad s..t.
    But I doubt that vino would stave off this particular bug.:(

    What a couple of generous compliments, thank you, both of you.
    Have you ever heard Louis Prima's version of Buona Sera Signorina? It starts of with a very Latin type of Staccato rhythm, which we dance an Argentine Tango to, then the rhythm changes to a fast four beat, perfect for swing jive, then it cuts back to Tango and finally a few more seconds of Rock & Roll. It's a particular favourite of ours, when we were younger, before joint replacements, we used to break from The Tango straight into an energetic gymnastic lift as we started to jive. I never got tired of hearing the "Oooooh!" It was certainly an attention grabber.

    This weekend I am having some friends and family stop over to do some canning so they can be more stocked up on food supply...of course some folks here will call me a murderer for all that..but hey that might offend some here, of course they can offend me all they want, I am a Patriot and they are a politically correct mess. I got used to that years ago when learning combat shooting skills on a course with my late husband. We used to talk about some people need a safe place and crayons to function...sad...real sad.
