SO HOW ARE YOU DOING THIS WEEK? Let's do a quick check in today, just to see how everyone is doing.
THE BOARD GAME IS GOING TO BE EPIC!!! And I was going to give you an overview, but I think I'm just going to keep working on it and roll out a prototype. Does anyone know a graphic artist with time on their hands? I do need help on the "Dave's Bucket List" cards where you either move forward, move backwards or die.
CHUCK VENTURED OUT THIS MORNING FOR SUPPLIES For our once weekly shopping trip. This was outside Costco.
He got one package of toilet paper and laundry detergent and said everyone was being very nice and respectful of keeping their distance.
THE COLUMN ON GRIEF I WAS TALKING ABOUT And thanks to Tyler for sending it again. Here it is.
HOW ARE FOOD TRUCKS DEALING WITH THIS? It would seem to be their big chance, as many are setting up at apartment complexes and neighborhoods for the time being. We were supposed to have Cheffin's Cheesesteaks and Cubanos today for Food Truck Friday, but since Angie is pretty much the only one in the building now, we decided to just push it, but we are talking to them about what they are doing to pass the coronavirus time. Find out all about them and where they are open by clicking here! Find out where your favorite food truck is by downloading the Truckster app or finding them online here.
SO WHAT'S GOING ON IN THE DATING WORLD RIGHT NOW? Dave's daughter Annie joins us to discuss what Coronavirus has done to the dating scene. She's on at 1.
AMERICAN COMPANIES DON'T WAIT TO BE ORDERED TO HELP and SO MANY of them have jumped into action to build the things we need to protect our healthcare workers and provide the machinery needed to help people suffering with covid 19. Ford, Tesla, 3M and GM have jumped right in to build things. My friend Helen Raleigh has a great column about just that. Helen says it best when she says "Capitalism saves the day". She is correct.
SO HOW IS THE NEWS MEDIA DOING DURING ALL THIS? Not so hot according to the recent Gallup polling. The press is the LOWEST rated group asked about in this approval poll where only 44% of Americans thought the press was doing a good job. In news that must drive many crazy, Trump got a 60% approval rating on the job he's doing. Read it all here.
AND NOW, HERE ARE SOME PUPPIES VISITING AN AQUARIUM
HOPE FOR THE CENTENARIANS IN OUR MIDST A 101-year-old man has recovered from the coronavirus in Italy.
THE EVIL RICH GIVE A CRAP TON OF MONEY FOR CORONAVIRUS RESEARCH And I'm talking about Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan. They've donated $25 million for coronavirus research.
IS NEW YORK SUFFERING NOW BECAUSE OF THE WOKENESS OF IT'S LEADERSHIP? Tucker Carlson made the case on his show that NYC is the epicenter of coronavirus because politicians and bureaucrats were more worried about being PC than urging people to take precautions. He's got some pretty bad quotes. Check it all out here.
HOW ARE YOU KEEPING FIT DURING LOCKDOWN? I have to say, I look FORWARD to my walks with Jinx very much these days. It's literally the only time I'm going outside. This is a good article with some suggestions on how to stay health AND fit during this weird time.
HOW ABOUT SOME COOL QUARANTINE FASHION? This guy nails it. h
CHIK FIL A DOES IT AGAIN WITH INSPIRING MESSAGES FOR CUSTOMERS Chik-Fil-A gives free lessons in customer service every single day, and during the covid 19 crisis they are stepping up even more.
COMCAST IS OFFERING FREE BROADBAND FOR LOW INCOME PEOPLE And I think this is nice, but I fully expect to see "Comcast takes away broadband access for low income people" headlines at some point.
HERE'S SOME FUN NON-CORONA NEWS
REMEMBER THAT RUSSIAN TROLL FARM MUELLER INDICTED? THEY JUST DROPPED THE CHARGES And they dropped the charges because the Russians were NEVER going to stand trial and were using Pre-Trial discovery to poke holes in the entire investigation.
DON'T FORGET TO WATCH YESTERDAY'S BRIEFINGS. ESPECIALLY DR. BIRX.
THIS IS TOTALLY INSANE. AND SHE IS A MEMBER OF CONGRESS. Just watch this.
