I get it. I really do. Sometimes you just wanna really scream. Scream at the top of your lungs in frustration, anger, and just because.

Just when you thought that life was somewhat getting back to normal, there have been spikes of new Coronavirus cases in 21 states with some restaurants and other business closing down again. And yet, I get it. This highly contagious virus is killing people. As of this writing 116,000 deaths because of Covid-19 in the U.S. with an estimate of over 200,000 total expected by September. That is a lot of people. More than what kills people in traffic accidents per year and we are only five months into this pandemic.

You are just going to have get used to this concept of ups and downs with getting back to normal. Normal is not for at least a year when we finally get a vaccine.

But let me ask you a question...would you be the first in line for a vaccine? A vaccine that was hurriedly pushed through the testing process. Would you be a first adopter? I would t…
Right in the middle of today's White House Coronavirus briefing I saw this news bulletin that Universal, the studio not the theme park, was announcing that their new release films starting this Friday, will go directly to stream as well as theater. Well, since no more than 10 people can gather together in any venue and orders are out to specifically/temporarily close down movie theaters, the 10-person order is moot. Movie theaters are closed all over the U.S. So you couldn't see new films there if you wanted to. You will now buy the movie stream for all new films through various streaming services only. Okay, what does this mean? It means what has been looming on the horizon for awhile, the projection of movies in movie theaters is doomed, dying, and soon will be over. The other day, before the madness began, my wife and I saw in Walmart an eighty-two inch 4K monitor for under $700. Get a $150 Sound Bar and you have a great system. The other studios will follow this first-day …
This is my take on what is going on with the Coronavirus sitch. Below is a message I just sent to a friend:
The President's speech tonight...NBA is shutting down the season...Angela Merkel told the German Parliament that up to 70% of German Population is going to get the virus, that's 50 million people...over 2,000 new cases alone in Italy. This is some serious shit that is going on. Do you have emergency supplies, are you stocking up? I hope so. Just heard that Tom Hanks and his wife both have contracted the virus, they are in Australia but you know that everyone in Hollywood who has interacted with him in the last month are going to try to remember how close they have been to him and his wife in the last month. And we hear from the CDC this is going to get worse. Damn. This is biblical in its nature and scope.
I hope you are making some preparations and are stalking up with supplies. I suggest you go to to…

The Dow is now down almost 2,000 a single friggin day. The bottom has dropped out of the oil market. Corona confirmed cases at 111,400 and deaths at 3,842. States around the U.S. and the world declaring States of Emergency. Schools and Universities closing down. Fed may take us down to ZERO percent. Even the old men and women of the Congress considering shutting down for awhile. And on and on... This is nutso.
What is going on? Is this God's retribution or just a lot of bad shit hitting all at once.
All of us should not panic. I was going to say we should go about our every day business but that is becoming more difficult. We went yesterday to our local WalMart, we are here in southern Arizona, and there was crowds, pushing, cutting-off, grabbing for items with a vengeance, and just an overall bad attitude of most people in the store, even the cashiers.
Major events where crowds of people gather are shutting down one by one. Security a…

As a public service here is a list of some of the disinfectants that the EPA recommends to kill the Coronavirus that is of such great public interest these days:
