Around here Home Depot is open.   When people got the initial order that business were closed, many, many people headed to Home Depot to buy paint.

Home repair type places have to stay open because if your water heater dies, or something like that, it's "life essential" to be able to fix it.

Air pollution is down across the world.

It's the golden age of being a pet, every owner is forced to stay home with them haha.

I'm appreciating the life I had before #QuarantineLife began, that's for sure.

Also, we can all finally write our novels/screenplays too* hehe. I'm zero pages into mine, which is another positive... for the world.

Otherwise though, I've been pretty negative about this whole thing, so thanks for starting a thread that forced me to go the other direction for once 😃 

 

*well, a lot of us anyway.

All these professional musicians from across genres streaming from their homes, it is cool to see what their places look like.

Mayor in town hit by tornado today said the shelter in place saved lives as a shopping center was hit. I guess there is good news there, in a convoluted sort of way....

Not to mention all the folks on the news shows streaming from laptops in their homes.  Backgrounds can be pretty lame sometimes.  There's a lucrative business out there for someone to produce fake backdrops to hang on a wall.  The fireplace, the bookshelves, the wine cellar, the window view of a mountain or a golf course.  Views of oceans wouldn't work... needs wave action.

I don't have to get up at 5:45 in the morning to get to school.  We are doing Digital Learning Days and the governor has just stated that schools will be closed in Georgia until April 24th, and a former administrator, who has gotten into consulting, told me that the general consensus is that they will simply call it for the rest of the year.  I teach Georgia History, so it doesn't really spiral like Math or Language Arts, so it's not critical for my eighth graders to have as they enter high school.  Also, due to the COVID-19 outbreak, our high-stakes test - the Georgia Milestones - have been suspended for this year.

The COVID-19 outbreak has allowed me to spend a lot more time with my own children.

They could use Zoom for video. Get to pick your own backdrop. I used a scene from James Bond Skyfall yesterday.

Nice.  Green screen chroma key?  Were you on the news at 11:00?  Please post video...

Nah. Just getting used to the software, so zooming with family.

I’m assuming that we’re allowed to turn the company/app name into a verb, like we did “to google something.”

I believe you can be the first on the site!   Now we'll tell everyone "Zoom me"!

Have at it.  The more verbs in the dictionary the better.

I think there is a lot more posting going on these days. Everyone updating golf in their area and responding to topics. I'd be curious if there are site stats to support that.

I learned how to cut my husband’s hair so he won’t have to pay someone else to do it anymore.

We are now more careful with food and enjoy every last bit of it.

I finally had time to organize the mess in my garage so we could move our extra car inside.

My husband and I both lost 3lbs since the beginning of this month...

This person playing golf on a farm in NZ. First time I've seen a ball hit off a pile of poop, fear not, it doesn't look too gross in the video. Warning, turn down volume or mute.

    • Played Disney Palms yesterday with @kpaulhusand my Dad.  Had a rough start, bogey, double, bogey, double, but played better after, had a chance for even par on back 9 before a double on 18 to shoot 44-38-82. Great day with Kyle, as always.    
    • If I’m on the course by myself and I’m not holding anyone up, I practice all of the time (I’m also a member of a Country Club, so no one is going to say anything to me for hitting extra balls).  I find areas of the course that I might find myself in during a round and hit a few balls (especially around the green), so I have an idea of how I want to play that shot when the score counts and that is where I find my ball.
    • Title changes typically happen when the original title didn't make sense or wasn't relevant to the topic that OP discusses in their post. The original title was something like "Two Mindsets of Golf" but the post doesn't talk about having different mindsets, therefore the original title was relevant or accurate. How does someone changing the title of a topic to something more relevant make this forum way less desirable? If anything changing the title to something more accurate improves the site because it helps increase the accuracy of the search function.
    • You certainly are entitled to that opinion, but did you actually read the series of posts? In post #22, the OP says he was “shitcanned” because someone disagreed with what he was saying. Obviously REALLY thin-skinned and over-reactive. He calls the administration’s decision to change the title “childish & authoritarian.” Seriously? In the very next post (#23), the administrator explains, in a friendly & polite way, why the title was changed. I didn’t make that decision, but completely agree with it. The Title made No sense. Whatever, no big deal, again, if that was upsetting, someone is really thin-skinned. The next post from @boogielicious was apologetic for there being some misunderstanding, to which the OP responded in #27 the he was taking his ball and going home after calling folks pedantic several times (I think he just learned the word or something). I don’t see how this was anyone else’s doing other than the OP being thin-skinned when someone disagreed with him.    But you are entitled to feel the way you do.
