The government is doing a large poster campaign, even at the bus stops.

I like their attitude of "positive" messages they try to spread. Most are instructions what to do and not so much what is forbidden :lecture:

The virus can only get to you via surface contact transferred through 1. mucus membrane in mouth/eyes/nose or 2. aerosol in confined places - so stay inside, 3. avoid contact with surfaces outside of your home, use social distancing and wash hands properly with soap often. We are all in this together.

Here in NYC, we are told that anyone with symptoms is positive. My wife and I have had (thankfully) mild cases for the past week. Things can always turn bad, but the vast majority of cases are no worse than "feel like crap for a week". Well, we certainly qualify.

So, instead of empty playgrounds and public transportation, I give you a look at your typical COVID-19 case - me.

Same to you and your wife, or should we say "get healthy"? Anyway, best wishes.


Food and liquor stores are still open here in Belgium (selling essentials). Saw this sign at the liquor store today:

A couple of weeks ago when all this was kicking off I read somewhere on the internet that the first thing to disappear from supermarket shelves in Belgium was Corona beer.

Then someone commented "Who says the Belgians don't have a sense of humour?":ROTFL:

When I went to the supermarket when this all started I saw plenty of Corona and other (better) Belgian beers on the shelves. Like in many other countries the empty shelves were toilet paper, dry pasta and flower.

Apparently people were not realising yet that they would be close to locked up in the house with their kids and spouse for an extended period, so large amounts of beer and liquor would probably be needed as well to survive :ROTFL:

If you are getting to 90%, you are doing better than I!

..... and MUCH better than me - maybe I might be able to discipline myself to stay at it,
but somehow I doubt it (unless it rains a lot meaning I can't garden, and my computer breaks down).

Here's my 17th century Italian spinet.

Our local supermarket is completely out of ice cream (but not frozen pizza) That could explain why it is out of toilet paper, too.

Glad you are well. The problem is that it might have been COVID-19 or some other type of infection--can't tell unless you are tested. Given that the NYC/NJ area account for half of the known cases in the US, I would still be careful. Right now it is pollen season in KC and I can't distinguish between hay fever and on-coming flu symptoms (no temperature yet).

But I am sure you will be fine in NYC, because if you can make it there, you can make it anywhere! (Well, perhaps not Italy that has the the highest death toll of any country.)

Sorry for the dark humor--I have to find something else to do than read the news...

Thanks. Feeling better each day. I’m even noticing things like Leica trade-in deals for the S3. Sign of physical recovery and mental degeneration? :D

Matt
Judging by the 'chops' you evidenced in the piano link above - I'd say that your mental faculties are just fine - and of coursea little reward to yourself after the Covid episode is a necessary part of ful recovery regime.

Peter,

Thank you, and I like the way you think. 😎

From last tuesday in the local park

Warning at the entrance



These people (and the dog) seem to adhere quite well



These less, but they are probably from 1 family, so the 1,5 meter doesn't apply


All Sony A7ii + M-Elmar 90/4 (M39)

Normally every sunny weekend the smaller roads and dikes in Belgium are packed with large groups of cycle tourists (or cycle terrorists as they're sometimes called). Today they were few and far between, and keeping their obligatory social distance :thumbup:

I will, but if you don't mind I'll keep 1,5 meter distance ;)

Our local Children's Garden was closed today with a sign at the entrance describing curve flattening and why it is important.
