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

 

You mean the Classic Asian Rice Bowl cut?....just askin for a friend.

My mom tried it on me in the 1960's to save a bit of money...not a good look.....nuff said.

I still have a crush on Elizabeth Montgomery!

Absolutely. Her and Julie Newmar as Cat woman. Total smoke shows.

You guys all had teen, or prepubescent, crushes on these women.  They're all in their late 80's.  And you're not.

Traffic is significantly lighter. Makes it easier and safer for me to go about my workday.

I don't have to see random restaurant customers walk out of the bathroom without washing their hands.

I'm seeing a lot more couples/families out for walks when the weather is nice.

Traffic here is almost non-existent.  Weird.  Almost a ghost town.  Where before in the late afternoon I couldn't find a parking space, now there are 100's!

And the walkers on my residential street have gone from about 50 a day to about 250.  I mowed my lawn yesterday and had to wave "Hi" to about 40 walkers... mostly strangers.  I think they're busing into my 'hood.

1) Found a couple of Insta Pot recipes that came out well.

2) Had time to get caught up on some books I've had sitting around

3) Figured out how to do curbside grocery pickup.

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!

The pizza joint we always go to is giving you a roll of TP with every take out order. We joked that it could be taken one of two ways. LOL

Good one.  Now you'll have to start hoarding pizza.

For me the biggest positive of this quarantine that is taking place in some countries, is that the Earth is benefiting.  Less cars are being driven, factories run and less pollution is happening.  Apparently the canals of Venice have gone back to being clear and fish being visible.  I guess you could call it a natural reset for many urban areas

SoCal air quality is just great because traffic is nearly non-existent compared to what we’re used to.

I think a possible positive long-term will be bringing back closeness with family. Every time I go in the Walmart by my house there is always people buying backyard games and boardgames. Kind of neat to see. Also, could be a normal thing after this for distance learning for high school students. And maybe @Vinsk can offer his thoughts, but maybe we will see more online consultations with doctors for routine things.

    • He wasn’t thinking. It was reflexive. Just like when PReed said it (also to himself). Who cares? Does these tiny differences in context matter? I agree context matters but this level? No.
    • I wouldn’t worry about this. I’ve had one set, 50, 54, 58 for several years with lots of practice and the milling is still fine. I bought these used too. These are 304 stainless steel and are pretty hard from a durometer standpoint. Chrome plated steel ranges between 66 - 70 Rockwell and 304 Stainless is 79, I looked at several sources. So 304 is more scratch and wear resistant.
    • I would like to add one more item of importance(maybe).    I went back and re-watched the incident. For whatever reason I thought he blurted out that slur at the time of the putt. He did not.    He walked to his next putt and as the commentator was speaking he said it right before his next putt. The context has most certainly changed.   Very strange way to express frustration in the context of how it actually played out.           
    • They made a decision based on their business model. While I certainly am no fan of the cancel culture. I totally understand Ralph Lauren's move here. Businesses need to do what's best for business and in this case I think they got it right.  My question here is more about what was JT thinking? You have to know that in this day and age everything you do or say will likely end up being recorded. Some may argue that Justin is used to the fan noise drowning out his outbursts. To which I say this is NOT the first tournament he's played under these conditions. Others will say, he deserves a pass. He apologized. To that I say I forgive him. Others will too, in time. Never-the-less, he should have known better. Its a mistake. Everyone makes mistakes. He'll pay for this mistake. I've paid for many mistakes I've made as well. There are mistakes you can get away with. There are mistakes that are going to cost you.  I still believe he must use the word in his "real life" to have it slip out. (Top of mind.) I can't prove that of course. And I could be wrong of course. But I think with most people, myself included. There would be a hundred other expletives I would use before I ever got to that one.
