    Well, it's kind of hard when someone decides to park their cart in the middle of the aisle while they're looking at whatever on the shelves. I just hold my breath and go past quickly.

    Maybe dying in ones sleep might be a blessing, but as an asthmatic who has had a knife to my throat, I can't picture drowning in your own bodily fluids as you struggle for air, as a blessing.

    My county of 91000 people is hanging in there. Yesterday was supposed to be "peak Michigan death day."
    We have 15 positive cases, 3 deaths, and 5 recovered. So that means 20% death rate, 33% recovered, and rest hanging in there.

    Nearly half the people who have died in Washington have been nursing home residents.

    None of our people who have died have been nursing home residents, although all have been over 60.

Iím used to cheapo bikes from Walmart. Has a nice cushy seat. Too windy to ride today. Will get out tomorrow.

    It was an extra so the gal just gave it to me.
    Congrats and enjoy! There ARE nice people out there.

    I have asthma so I know what it feels like to have trouble breathing. However, everyone I have known that ends up in a home has been miserable and just waiting to die.

    I wonder how that number changes if the deaths in the Life Care Center (cruel irony, that) in Kirkland are subtracted...
