Wishing you all well during coronavirus concerns

Postby pete » Thu Mar 19, 2020 12:33 pm

Just a note to wish all our fellow flight sim enthusiasts well during these strange and concerning times.

Good news is that it 'seems' to be in decline in China and hopefully a similar pattern will follow elsewhere.

Hoping you're all well and keeping safe.

'and keep those hands clean!' 8-)

Many thanks Pete!

The reaction of all Governments has been very slow, nobody has a solution other that stay at home... Not good prospects.

Thanks Pete.
My wife and I along with our cat are enjoying 2 weeks of isolation. I have hundreds of movies, my son-inlaws Plex server and thanks to our cable supplier extra channels to watch. Life is not all that bad here in Cambridge Ontario Canada. ;)

I'm taking the advice, printed in large friendly letters on the cover of the best selling book in the Galaxy, Don't Panic! Also, don't forget where your towel is!

Also, hope all you hoopy froods get through this safely!

Thanks Pete, wish you the same!
We now live in a highly networked world! We experience good and bad events in almost real time and we have to learn to deal with that!
My neighbor (64) has the virus (was tested) and shows also all symptoms of a flu! But she still sits in her garden and is busy on the phone with other people!
Of course she is ill but she will not die!
Only to point another view of this pandemic!

nice sentiment..........thought it wouldn't hurt................
Lockdown by Brother Richard:

Yes there is fear.
Yes there is isolation
Yes there is panic buying.
Yes there is sickness.
Yes there is even death.
But,
They say that in Wuhan after so many years of noise
You can hear the birds again.
They say that after just a few weeks of quiet
The sky is no longer thick with fumes
But blue and grey and clear.
They say that in the streets of Assisi
People are singing to each other
across the empty squares,
keeping their windows open
so that those who are alone
may hear the sounds of family around them.
They say that a hotel in the West of Ireland
Is offering free meals and delivery to the housebound.
Today a young woman I know
is busy spreading fliers with her number
through the neighborhood
So that the elders may have someone to call on.
Today Churches, Synagogues, Mosques and Temples
are preparing to welcome
and shelter the homeless, the sick, the weary
All over the world people are slowing down and reflecting
All over the world people are looking at their neighbors in a new way
All over the world people are waking up to a new reality
To how big we really are.
To how little control we really have.
To what really matters.
To Love.
So we pray and we remember that
Yes there is fear.
But there does not have to be hate.
Yes there is isolation.
But there does not have to be loneliness.
Yes there is panic buying.
But there does not have to be meanness.
Yes there is sickness.
But there does not have to be disease of the soul
Yes there is even death.
But there can always be a rebirth of love.
Wake to the choices you make as to how to live now.
Today, breathe.
Listen, behind the factory noises of your panic
The birds are singing again
The sky is clearing,
Spring is coming,
And we are always encompassed by Love.
Open the windows of your soul
And though you may not be able
to touch across the empty square,
Sing

I am in day 10 and trying to adhere to this isolation. I am also in construction and none of the younger guys are the least bit concerned. I'm 67 and most of them are thirtyish with kids at home. It seems that anyone that's not isolating is destroying the whole reason the rest of us are cooperating. Isolation is supposed to flatten the curve an not stop the virus. Also I only have 8 rolls of toilet paper left so I'm beefing up iron tablets. O0
