That or you shake up water in the bottle, to get the last bit of ketchup, and put the water into whatever is on the stove.

Yeah, and we think we have problems.

There is a book about her too. An inspiring perspective. Favorite line: "It's a hot meal. What are you complaining about?"

Her father couldn't find work. But as a strong young woman, there was work for her. She saved her family's house. They gardened every inch in front and back. They also looked for edible wild plants growing nearby. They had one lamp upstairs and one lamp downstairs. Her mother did not work. Ever. They made it through the Depression. She married.

Nice lady. Nice family.

Yes, vitamins. Vitamin C, a lot, at first sign of having the virus. Also a one-a-day complete vitamin because you need the other vitamins too.

A one-a-day multi-vitamin every day, especially now, but really always.

Acidophilus every day maintains good gut flora. Only recommended dosage, what it says on the bottle, not more.

Eat a steak. If possible, a real steak, not chopped beef.

Eggs.

A super-hot shower, if you think you are getting the virus.

If you live alone, put up a crock pot stew if you think you are getting the virus. You may be too tired too cook later, and you need hot food.

Air your house out. Clean everything. Wipe surfaces, door knobs, light switches, keyboards, phones. Wash your hands.

Drink water frequently, because you want to wash it into your stomach, not let it dribble into your lungs. Your stomach acid will kill it. Sunshine kills it. Heat kills it.

You don't want it in your eyes. Wear glasses or goggles, any time you feel the need to wear a mask.

"Juliet:

How cam'st thou hither, tell me, and wherefore? The orchard walls are high and hard to climb, And the place death, considering who thou art, If any of my kinsmen find thee here.

Romeo:

With love's light wings did I o'erperch these walls, For stony limits cannot hold love out, And what love can do, that dares love attempt: Therefore thy kinsmen are no stop to me."

Anybody can design their own bumper sticker on Zazzle or Cafe Press or other sites.

Perhaps against the opportunistic infections that are bacterial. They can follow along when the person is weakened by the virus.

My experience with online ordering has been positive.

OP you might have apendicitis; see a doctor, any doctor, to have them palpate and see if that's present. Or you might have eaten take-out food that wasn't clean and you have a GI bug.

Eat several oranges, later eat some cultured yogurt, but only half the container, have some clear soup. Take your temperature and note the date and time. Wash your hands a whole lot.

Wearing a mask around people would be a kindness for now.

I see Daisymae said most of what I said already.

Air drop the cure pills onto the dock of the ship. Fly helicopter away. Wait.

The HDQ. The Hydroxychloroquine. And the Azithromycin antibiotic.

(Hydroxychloroquine is sometimes called Plaquenil.)

Yes. That is why is is SO important to KEEP the Senate red.

It would be a damn miserable thing to lose the Senate. That is where the rubber meets the road. They could positively REMOVE this president next term, if they get the Senate.

Yes, yes, yes. And a nice population positivism with some new Coronial babies. Mad Hattie's amusing word.

Talk without babies is talk without babies.

And mutual help, WITH said babies. Mutual concern, sharing, support, caring. Swapping useable equipment, clothes, toys. Cooked meals for new parents. People not being alone with the whole thing.

Take a page from the religious. They do that kind of thing, so it can be done. You don't have to pray their way but you can still learn practical things from them.

An organism that does not have the will to reproduce will find itself a bit kaputsky. Darwin said that.

Culture is most of it.

Here is a video of two men discussing their new found personal space, having only recently learned how to stand up straight. They are, at the moment, babies.

You can't, except maybe you can, with frugality, determination, pure damned insistence, with home schooling and a cheap, home based way of eating and living (perhaps crowded but that's "cozy" if you have a good culture.

If they can be crazy their way, you can be crazy your way.

If you look at the various kinds of immigrants, they live lean and have lots of kids, all of whom turn out the way the parents want them to.

But they know exactly, firmly, who they are. They don't get their identity from TV, sports, celebrities, rock concerts, or assorted other amusements. An insistence on their own kind of food, home cooked, might be part of that. Also modest clothes. In short, some rules. Their own rules that they themselves choose.

Eat some yogurt? Not a lot. Half a container, but the real kind, no jam, with live cultures.

You can make more yogurt from that, using it as a culture. Perhaps with a yogurt maker from Amazon or from a YouTube video.
