I am bring back manufacturing to my reloading shed, churning out 12 gauge ammo for the last few days. Lots more powder, shot, primers, wads, and empty hulls to go. I wonder if I should be using non-toxic shot! I don't think so!

so if they are relaxing stuff like taxes and no turns offs for electric of gas because of the virus, when is DFW relaxing the regs? Extra month of turkey and deer season. Open up tree rat hunting in Socal. Food supply is getting tight, fresh game for the table will really help span the gap when theyre short of meat at costco.

Does Newsome have to sign that?
Just heard Maine says no fishing license required due to the virus.

This may be another repercussion of Cali being a sanctuary state.

This is close to spot on of what I have seen so far:

This is the best explanation I have heard or read so far.
Here is your insight. Stay home. Wash your hands.

This is from an Immunologist at Johns Hopkins University.

Feeling confused as to why Coronavirus is a bigger deal than Seasonal flu? Here it is in a nutshell. I hope this helps. Feel free to share this to others who don’t understand...

It has to do with RNA sequencing.... I.e. genetics.

Seasonal flu is an “all human virus”. The DNA/RNA chains that make up the virus are recognized by the human immune system. This means that your body has some immunity to it before it comes around each year... you get immunity two ways...through exposure to a virus, or by getting a flu shot.

Novel viruses, come from animals.... the WHO tracks novel viruses in animals, (sometimes for years watching for mutations). Usually these viruses only transfer from animal to animal (pigs in the case of H1N1) (birds in the case of the Spanish flu). But once, one of these animal viruses mutates, and starts to transfer from animals to humans... then it’s a problem, Why? Because we have no natural or acquired immunity.. the RNA sequencing of the genes inside the virus isn’t human, and the human immune system doesn’t recognize it so, we can’t fight it off..

Now.... sometimes, the mutation only allows transfer from animal to human, for years it’s only transmission is from an infected animal to a human before it finally mutates so that it can now transfer human to human... once that happens..we have a new contagion phase. And depending on the fashion of this new mutation, thats what decides how contagious, or how deadly it’s gonna be..

H1N1 was deadly....but it did not mutate in a way that was as deadly as the Spanish flu. It’s RNA was slower to mutate and it attacked its host differently, too.

Fast forward.

Now, here comes this Coronavirus... it existed in animals only, for nobody knows how long...but one day, at an animal market, in Wuhan China, in December 2019, it mutated and made the jump from animal to people. At first, only animals could give it to a person... But here is the scary part.... in just TWO WEEKS it mutated again and gained the ability to jump from human to human. Scientists call this quick ability, “slippery”

This Coronavirus, not being in any form a “human” virus (whereas we would all have some natural or acquired immunity). Took off like a rocket. And this was because, Humans have no known immunity...doctors have no known medicines for it.

And it just so happens that this particular mutated animal virus, changed itself in such a way the way that it causes great damage to human lungs..

That’s why Coronavirus is different from seasonal flu, or H1N1 or any other type of influenza.... this one is slippery AF. And it’s a lung eater...And, it’s already mutated AGAIN, so that we now have two strains to deal with, strain s, and strain L....which makes it twice as hard to develop a vaccine.

We really have no tools in our shed, with this. History has shown that fast and immediate closings of public places has helped in the past pandemics. Philadelphia and Baltimore were reluctant to close events in 1918 and they were the hardest hit in the US during the Spanish Flu.

Factoid: Henry VIII stayed in his room and allowed no one near him, till the Black Plague passed...(honestly...I understand him so much better now). Just like us, he had no tools in his shed, except social isolation...

And let me end by saying....right now it’s hitting older folks harder... but this genome is so slippery...if it mutates again (and it will). Who is to say, what it will do next.

Be smart folks... acting like you’re unafraid is so not sexy right now.

The husband has had a rough go of it but finally seems to be improving. Now his wife has tested positive for the virus but she still has no symptoms.

My son is quarantined with his girlfriend. One of her coworkers came into the office and was sick; yes, even coughing all over. That person caught it from someone who visited them from Seattle.

My sons gf is now on the mend, but in the final stage she did lose her sense of taste and smell. I told him that my cureall for viruses was jalapeno and hot coffee. He loaded up her food with the hottest sauce in the cupboard and it worked to kill off the virus and restore her senses.

Just an update on my friends with covid 19. The husband called today and he is almost 100% recovered. His wife is scheduled to go back to work next week. She never really got sick but did have to stay home after testing positive.
