Are California Reservoirs Filling Up?

We will be able to re-start the pumps to obtain drinking water from aquifers around our city, much tastier and clearer!

Re: Coffee Crowd for Civilized Discourse on World Events
can i ask for advice from the team? hopefully someone has a better idea than i do.

the pandemic has gone on for 3 yrs. during that time, the GF and i have not been to visit family. i was with my step-dad and my mom when i was dealing with vehicle problems. we have not been to visit the GF's mother. both mothers are vaxed. none are trying to avoid the virus at all. they travel, shop, and are around lots of ppl each week.

i don't think we can avoid a meeting forever. if something were to happen bad to the GF or family, i think it would b better to have a meeting before that. but i see no safe way with no risk.

best i come up with is a meeting in a parking lot. the GF's mother lives 3 hours away. we can set a meet bout half way between us. will try to schedule mid-week so the grand kids are in school to minimize the risk. it's still a few hours back after being hugged on. and what if her mom tries to pull the GF's mask down to see here face. etc?

mayb, i'm being over careful. knowing the GF's med history, she would probably not survive covid. hell the cold we had was a struggle enuf. and no i don't trust anyone who is being carefree and thinks life is normal and covid is just a flu.

afterwards, we'd come home and take bleach baths and take a cpl doses of horse paste over a few days. anyone see a better way?

Meeting outdoors is your best bet, but pay attention to wind direction and remain upwind of the relatives. Also, you could ask everyone involved to take a home Covid test the morning of the meeting. I know that's not 100% perfect, but odds are if they all show negative you're probably safe.

I think your decon methods when you get home are probably overkill. Just throw all clothing into the wash and take a normal hot shower with soap as soon as you get home.

This virus isn't supernatural, Jazz. Whatever it may be, it's still just a virus that reacts to soap and hot water the same way all other viruses do.

Good luck and stay safe.

Jazzz-
Everyone has to make their choices (I know you know this, but still gotta say it), but I’ll share mine.

My dad was under home care with my mom for the first two years of this whole mess. I was worried about the virus during this time..him and mom, not so much. Regardless we kept visits to a minimum and only at a distance.

I never shared this before but he passed away in 21’.

The only regret I have with my entire relationship with my dad is not being there more during that time.

So, today. I take everything more in stride (less black and white) and visit family, so long everyone is healthy and comfortable with the visit. I still pay attention to what is going on around me. And when it starts to get saturated, I adjust accordingly.

Yes, there are risks. And yes, we could all get the virus. But the virus has already taken so much away.

 Quoting: Guythu


Oh man, guythu! My condolences.

I have a good idea of what you've been through. We didn't spend near enough time with family, but it was because of distance and finances at the time. Now, it's playing out again with our kids and extended family.

Jazz, you know I'm on the same road as guythu. AND...your gf. I look at it this way. I know I've got an expiration date. I just don't know exactly when it is. It's hard enough not getting all the hugs needed for survival from the kids whenever we want them. I decided my life wasn't worth a plug nickel if we had to stay separated from them.

We're probably not near careful enough, but there are things we don't do and places we won't go because of the virus and crowds. We have restaurants we go to, but we don't go during tourist season or busy times. We stayed away from shopping at Christmas, but more because of the way people act these days than anything else.

You have to do you, but try hard to find a way to make it work. We only know that we have today. We're not guaranteed a tomorrow.

I'm sorry for your loss.

I'm in agreement, as a personal viewpoint, on what my priorities are.

It goes that way sometimes. We lost all 4 parents in just over 2 years before covid and a couple of aunts, too. We're the elders now and I'm not too sure I much like it. Not trying to make light of it. It's hard and hurts like hell. It's just the nature of things.

Re: Coffee Crowd for Civilized Discourse on World Events
can i ask for advice from the team? hopefully someone has a better idea than i do.

the pandemic has gone on for 3 yrs. during that time, the GF and i have not been to visit family. i was with my step-dad and my mom when i was dealing with vehicle problems. we have not been to visit the GF's mother. both mothers are vaxed. none are trying to avoid the virus at all. they travel, shop, and are around lots of ppl each week.

i don't think we can avoid a meeting forever. if something were to happen bad to the GF or family, i think it would b better to have a meeting before that. but i see no safe way with no risk.

best i come up with is a meeting in a parking lot. the GF's mother lives 3 hours away. we can set a meet bout half way between us. will try to schedule mid-week so the grand kids are in school to minimize the risk. it's still a few hours back after being hugged on. and what if her mom tries to pull the GF's mask down to see here face. etc?

mayb, i'm being over careful. knowing the GF's med history, she would probably not survive covid. hell the cold we had was a struggle enuf. and no i don't trust anyone who is being carefree and thinks life is normal and covid is just a flu.

afterwards, we'd come home and take bleach baths and take a cpl doses of horse paste over a few days. anyone see a better way?

I believe you've been over thinking and worrying to much about the Covid virus.

Bleach baths and family visits in parking lots is way over the top cautious.

Chances of catching Covid is high, but the chances of serious illness or death from Covid is very low.

Bin the bleach baths, bin the mask, go visit your relatives, it will greatly improve both your health and mental happiness.

Go live your life my friend...

Congrats, Riff, your thread just hit 100 pages. And, to my knowledge, pretty peacefully.
 Quoting: Larry D. Croc


Thank you, sir. This does seem to be a refuge from the current level of crazy on most of the main threads, although I do poke my nose in one or two from time to time.

Thank you to everyone for all of your contributions, emotional support, and friendship. It means a lot to me.

Re: Coffee Crowd for Civilized Discourse on World Events
hi, GHENT. yeah mayb over the top, but with good reason. i know the GF's health issues. she would not fair well with covid. according to the data on the other thread, even a mild case can bring troubles.

i'll make a trip in a week or so. depends on weather. it is winter, so a game of dodge the storms.

mayb i didn't explain the thinking behind the bleach baths. in researching the cleaning of masks way back, i came across charts of how long solutions have to b in contact with surfaces to kill viruses. varies by chemical. it is constant contact and every inch of surface. basically u have to immerse the item,including yourself, and leave it for several minutes.

just washing your hands for 3 mins. doesn't work to ensure every inch of your hands is coated with chemical the whole time.

GF lost use of 1 arm due to her health issues decades ago. add to that her thick,long hair. due to that, i went to making bleach water in buckets in the beginning. made it easier for her to wash the 1 hand she can use. over time it made sence to add some bleach to the tub. it may sound crazy, but really it was to make things easier for her due to not having the use of 2 hands like most ppl have.
