Yep, Georgia. Well, you know us rebels!

Seriously, it has been a WTF moment for a number of us I think. I am not in favor of it, though I know many people and businesses are hurting big time.

That is why I commented above that I hope Gov. Kemp doesn’t look back 2-3 weeks now and find he made a huge mistake. But, that same push is being made by others states as well. I guess we are going to be a barometer — for good or bad — on whether it is ok or not to open up some.

I pray (seriously, I do...every day) that this not premature.

Sweden, about the size of Michigan, followed the 'herd immunity' approach. They have had a lot fewer deaths than Michigan. Herd immunity will be the only way covid-19 will be defeated, short of a vaccine. A vaccine may take a while to get to market anyway. I believe I had covid-19 already, back in February. I won't know until I take an antibody test.
Interestingly, smokers seem to have a resistance to the infection.

Michigan is extending the lockdown to 5/15/20, PRUDENTLY so.
Only relaxing restrictions on outdoor industries like Boating/Marinas, Landscaping, and Golf where people can keep their distance.
I'll be working totally from home another 3+weeks.

Waiting to see what they are going to do here in MN. They had a conference yesterday saying that schools will remain closed but workers in non-customer facing businesses can go back to work next Monday. Our lockdown is still set to end on May 4th, but WI and MI extending their dates has me thinking something will happen.

I'm just happy that online hobby stores/ebay exist as with no car racing in sight anytime soon turning back to rockets will be a fun turn around since I sold off my entire collection 12 years ago.
