All the good stuff, or at least what I consider is good, came through fine. I'll be investigating the store tomorrow for some items I wanted to add later, when they restocked.

    On the fruit front, at least I have piles of wild grape vines growing around the property. Everyone thinks they are vile, but I find the strong taste much better.
    Sounds like some real Koala-ty merchandise.

    So, 5 cases now. Case 4 went to a tool concert, so I suspect the cat is out of the bag as far as containment is concerned. I'm preparing on-site systems for lockdown and working from home. The biggest problem is that we are now in Autumn, and as time goes on the ability for the virus to spread is going to get easier for it, which is opposite to what is currently happening with the Northern hemisphere entering spring now/soonish. If I manage to catch it I'll let you know as soon as possible, no guarantees I'll survive.

    Hopefully you should be okay Ponti, unless you have underlying health issues it can be mild. Many people haven't even noticed that they've had it, which is obviously good and bad.
    Same thing here in the UK no toilet roll and no anti bacterial gel anywhere to be found. People buying a few more cans and stocking up on rice but food supplies still fine.

    Italians who bought up early should be able to ride this out to a point. Their death rate has gone exponential by the looks of things, is doubling every 48 hours now.

    Now, onto the worldwide stock markets, they are being driven by sentiment and fear. As a result the markets are going down, quickly. Furthermore, OPEC and Russia appear to have entered a production war. With the Corona virus depressing demand due to shutdown factories, the price of oil has fallen significantly. However, there is more at play there, by continuing to produce oil in this climate both OPEC and Russia can keep the price depressed. If this is maintained, then all US oil shale producers will go bankrupt shortly; only months at best.

    So, a comment by the adviser to Fore was that when the Share-markets fell past a certain point, they would never recover. I suspect we are not that far away from that happening. By reckoning on the dates concerned, I believe Fore probably circled back from about 2021 or 2023, either way, the States was done; and probably everywhere else.

    There is a new Corona Virus thread.
    Perhaps we can take this discussion to the new thread.

    Thanks

    Abilities are turning on forcibly, stability is good. It seems that I'm being looked in on much more than normal, have noticed some pretty hard tones, which haven't happened in a while. As far as I can tell I'm being prepped, some of the effects appear to be quite forcible, including an element of control. Whoever is in charge of my case is taking a firmer hand. I am under the impression a visit is likely.
