And maybe @Vinsk can offer his thoughts, but maybe we will see more online consultations with doctors for routine things. 

I think this will definitely bring more awareness to telemedicine. Technology will improve as to being able to do more thorough assessments via telecommunication.

I still have a crush on Elizabeth Montgomery!

Dude, I can’t remember her ever being “not hot” either!!

Mass shootings are down.

Crime is down, in general.  The website in my city that provides jail bookings is down to about 3 or 4 per day, from the usual 15-20.  I guess even criminals are staying in place.  These are interesting times.

For me, working from home has been great.  No commute obviously, not that mine was so long before, but zero minutes beats 30.  And instead of walking to the gas station and getting a snack when it’s time for a break, I go outside and play some street hockey with the kids.

And we are being better with our food too.

What recipes?   Always looking for anything quick and easy.    

We did curbside grocery pickup for the first time too!    I'm becoming an older millennial!


One was Orange Chicken and another was stuffed bell peppers. I'll have to ask my wife where she found them but it was online from the same source I believe.

We've been using it a lot, and the crock pot as well. Make big meals and have plenty of leftovers. Made Italian beef in the crock pot today. I might have grabbed a different chuck roast had I been in the store myself but with this pickup thing you have to just go with the flow. Those kids at the store are doing yeoman's work.

We haven't eaten out as much (had gotten into a bad habit) and saved that money. People are hopefully getting into a better habit of washing their hands...lol (we will find out once the restaurants open back up). My 401k should be even better when the stock prices come back seeing as how I am buying more for the same money now.

Personally, it is a massive thing I've been able to continue to work. Other than that it gets thinner fast.

I guess not having hockey means going to bed earlier than I would otherwise, so I'm better rested.

I think that our standards for cleaning and sanitizing in all work environments will be permanently changed. Hopefully we will build new habits of washing our hands thoroughly and coughing/sneezing into our arms instead of our hands. We will also start implementing more touch free technology (automatic doors, hand dryers, etc.). All of this will help prevent the spread of cold, flu and other germs in the future. Handshakes will become a thing of the past.


Finally, there has been some funny 💩 posted as people have WAY too much time one their hands.


Thankfully, my wife is a seashell hoarder. Anyone know how to use them?

    • Day 52: COVID-19 day 6/7 short game drills. After that, did a few minutes of rehearsals for my priority piece. Lesson coming up at the end of this week to see where I have gone wrong with this one.
    • Agreed. You always seem to have a brain-fart hole where you even just make bogey on a par-five and you’re toast. I usually am able to do it about 1 in 4 rounds, and it’s usually a bogey on a par-five that does me in. (Or the occasional brain-fart 6 on a par-3)
    • This winter I have access to a simulator that is being left with me so I am planning to start working through a few other issues. Nice time to do it when you have 6 months of winter!
    • Getting forward with more shaft lean at impact (and "longer arms" through impact) is a clear top-two or -three priority item. That's why you have a back ball position. You flip.
    • Might look at the Shelta brand hats . Reinforced brim stops flop in the wind. Look a bit dorky but they excell in wind or in a boat
