The best advice I've heard was from an English doctor who said to act as if you have the virus and try not to spread it. Seems logical to me.
My prediction is that things will settle down in April and people will get used to taking extra precautions. Life will go on and the media will find the next apocalypse. I still don't get the toilet paper frenzy though.

Man, I was at a ridiculous drum kits only a few years ago, now down to one - my trusty Ludwig '63 club dates... Still running miles and miles daily! And not watching tv or reading the news...

This beervirus has been a focus of everyone and the world has gone a little mad. All I can say, besides your birthday wish, to our community of vintage drum collectors and vintage drummers is honker down, wash your hands, donít hoard TP and be nice to each other. We will get through this !

It's nuts up here too! Maybe all of those people who are hoarding toilet paper should stock up on condoms instead. That way, they won't be producing any more idiots!

I want to thank everyone for the birthday wishes! I was supposed to have lunch with a friend, but we had to cancel as the restaurant was closed!

All the uninformed people are creating the panic, as they file in droves to all the markets and hoard anything they can get into their carts. It makes it very difficult for those of us who just need to shop for basic items, such as food!

Every news channel I turn to is all about the "virus". It's gotten to the point where I'd rather watch The Brady Bunch reruns than the constant barrage of virus information. Don't get me wrong, we all need to be aware of what's going on, especially in our communities. I just don't need to have my TV turned to a news channel 24 hours a day!

Stay safe, informed and SANE!

-Mark

Same here .. Australia's border are closed too. The radio & TV have been driving us crazy Ö going back through the DVD collection.. Clapton's Crossroads concerts, Pink Floyd, Jethro Tull Etc... also the first 4 seasons of NYPD Blue are good viewing..

Cheers
John
