    Yeah, A Tried and True company is even putting me on pay protect for April, meaning I will get a full month of commission even if my sales are zero.

    I would make a joke, but I'm so grateful I could cry.

    High all! Sorry Jeff. My son got back Friday night. He got the last EU before it closed and the last flight out of Paris to London. I can’t wait to talk to him after 14 days

    Thank goodness. Glad y'all are being reunited, Kim. That's some good news for the day.

    There are conspiracy theories on right wing sites that say the libturds and the lying media are exaggerating the pandemic. They post pictures of empty hospital parking lots and dumb shit like that as "evidence".

    Yeah, sure, motherfuckers, nearly a third of mankind is on lockdown and close to 40 000 people died just to make President Shit-fer-brains look bad. L-)

    I wonder, now that Dear Leader has switched from "It's a hoax", to "because of my brilliance only a couple hundred thousand will die," will the conspiracy theories continue or will they all just move on?

    I heard that there's a secret agency inside the government whose only purpose is to create new conspiracy theories.

    We couldn't do it on youtube. Scott waited too long to set up a channel for himself and there's like a 24hour approval process period or something so we had to do it on FB again. Sorry.
  • TrippTripp Posts: 603
    Approval process for livestreaming that is. I don't understand.
  • moetownmoetown Posts: 2,307
    Is it possible to archive that stuff for later viewing?

    Checking in from Charm City. Not much to report here. Cats sleep a lot.

    T____'s company is converting to the manufacture of surgical masks and gowns.

    She asked if, when they send her the box to return all of her stuff (she's been furloughed) if they'd send us some masks. (She offered to pay.) We'll see. They'd be nice to have, all things considered.

    I just had to do a monthly forecast for what I expect to sell this month. It was... grim.

    How are you nice people today?

    Trying to adapt to working from home. Trying to get up before 10:00 a.m. again.

    It only took a few days to go from 100,000 confirmed covid-19 cases to 200,000.

    Yeah, rumor has it that he killed himself over concerns about managing the financial response to the coronavirus pandemic!

    By the way, he was a Christian Democrat, that is, a conservative.

    I edited out all the banter. Well, most of it. Scott wanted to get rid of the last hour and a half which was just him shooting the shit with people.

    RIP Adam Schlesinger from Fountains of Wayne.
