Where I live the groceries are violating customer limits. It's not a problem with the very big Stores but smaller ones are regularly violating it. It's thought that it's because it's regularly dipping well below freezing here so the stores dont wanna let people stand outside and risk getting sued for frostbite and ADA issues.

G has a work from home job now... Amusingly in the biomedical technology industry. But D still works at a grocery. New COVID case alerts still come in every couple of days - the same rate that G got sick during. It worries me.

All the rural areas around us thought that they were safe... Right until they weren't. I watched all summer as case counts climbed and climbed while people would laugh at me for masking. Now they all have uncontrolled spread. Where I live case counts actually have gone DOWN in the countrysides because winter keeps everyone at home (except for holiday case spikes). People were careless and cases climbed all summer. I have NO faith that they won't keep climbing next summer.

How many chickens do you have? I just started last year and have 7, 6 girls and 1 boy all about to be a year old soon
By the end of the day(several hatching) we will have around 40. I have had chickens off abs on my whole life. We decided to hatch a few more because its fun and because of incredible delays is the postal system make me concerned about my hatchery order.

I,ve been reading these posts for a few mths now but never posted .Sometimes it does seem to get a bit hostile ,more lately ,I think it shows people are getting tired of living like this but I think we still have a long way to get through it ,we all just have to have patience and try to be kind to each other .Being nasty gets you nowhere .I,m in england and we have just been told the death total has reached over 100,000, we just have to hope things will improve and do our best to help everyone .

On another website today someone told me the COVID vaccine caused cancer because it was designed with black magic and people worshipping Moloch and the devil to control the human population. There may have been the implication of "Them" consuming baby souls because they don't have any as well.

They said that dead baseball player was proof of their theories. This is why I stick to studies, yall.

Yes. I love the variety. Its like an exotic bird zoo where I can pet all of the birds 😁. One good thing about Rona is way more people raise chickens now.
