Current Covid-19 Data

I have found the definitive .csv source for daily COVID-19 updates if anyone is interested. They're being stored on GitHub in daily sequential files. Here's my PHP code to access the latest:

$date = date('Y-m-d');

$pdate = date('Y-m-d', strtotime($date .' -1 day'));

do you notice skims?

I knew casinos did it, but today, I was looking at online groceries (never used them before), and orange juice is now 52 oz.?

I knew of course it was 64 oz. almost my entire life, then reduced to 59, but now 52?

When will we as Americans push back? Certainly we shouldn't be taken advantage of just for having poor math skills!

Freedom (spotted a bald eagle)

Wifey, Zeke (my dog) and I made our usual trip to a place Zeke can stretch his legs early this morning. As more and more places are "closed" it's getting tougher to find a spot away from everyone else. At least not many folks are out early in the AM.

PANDEMIC - Coronavirus Movie

This movie was shot in 2007. It is absolutely chilling, more than creepy, how the coronavirus we face today is like this movie shot 13 years ago. They nailed it!

This is remarkable, uncanny, spooky how 'Event 201' is so much like what is going on right now with the coronavirus.

Something to do while stuck at home

Now is a good time to take the family out into the yard (or up on the roof of your flat topped apartment/condo building) to see the International Space Station fly over at night.

what happens with credit card recurring payments

When those charging are closed for business, due to the pandemic?

Meaning, they're not open for business, so one cannot get the services that the recurring payments are for. One can also not reach the business to stop the payments, because they are closed.

Things to do when you can't do anything

OK folks, let's help each other out a bit. This idea came to me as I posted in another thread about a visit I had yesterday with some friends. We conversed across the front lawn obeying the rules of social distancing but still being within eyeshot and it was truly uplifting after being quarantined in my house after work for 7 days yet.

Gas under $1/gallon

I just checked Gas Buddy and there is a town in Wisconsin where unleaded is $0.999/gallon. Devlan, WI.

I live near Eau Claire, WI where is recently dropped to $1.499. Too bad we can't go anywhere.

Coronavirus Stimulus Payment - How will you receive yours?

The coronavirus stimulus relief bill offers direct cash payments of up to $1,200 for individuals and $2,400 for couples, with $500 added for every child, based on 2019 tax returns for those who filed them and 2018 information if they have not. The benefit begins to phase out for individuals making $75,000 in income and ends completely for those making $99,000 or more.
