That picture at the bottom of Brett's comment is a link to it. If you're on a computer just click on the white triangle and it will start. On your phone you tap the white triangle button with your finger to start it.

Personally, I don't give it a second thought. I will be 65 in December and had a heart transplant a bit over a year ago. Cancer survivor X2.

The sky is NOT falling, but the Alphabet TV networks have lost their minds, deliberately putting the public into a panic for a pathetic attempt to take our country to the extreme far left.

I will be 69 in July, have Multiple Sclerosis (10 years since last flare up) and recently had my heart shocked due to having AFib. I am overweight and drive 11,000+ miles a month....so am in truck stops, shippers or receivers daily around many people. I have worn a mask one time (WalMart DC Grantsville UT) and pulled up my shirt over my nose one time at Americold in Ontario CA because I was told I wouldn't get unloaded if I didn't.

I am on blood thinners, blood pressure and thyroid meds. On my own, I take D3 10,000 iu in the fall and winter and 5000 spring and summer. I take zinc and 5000 mg of C in the winter. My VA doc respected my decision to NOT get the flu or pneumonia shot (haven't since 2000)....but she moved and I will have to break in a new guy this fall. I will try to find the link but an epidemiologist has discovered that those seniors (and other ages) that get the flu shot are more apt to get really sick with the Coronavirus than those that don't get the flu shot. They also have other underlying health issues.

You don't have to worry about Denny's, they are practicing social distancing at the couple I ate at this past week.

I don’t let fear and the media control my life. I’m getting ready to turn 60. I’m in good health. I have been through most of the hot spot areas since this whole mess started. I use good common sense and am aware of my surroundings. To my knowledge I haven’t caught it, but if I do, I do. Careful and cautious is far different from scared and paranoid.
