29% of the inmates at San Quentin have tested positive for COVID-19:

The article does not mention how many of the corrections officers and other staff have it.

Jeepers. I spoke too soon about everything being fully stocked. I just got back from Costco, and almost all the water and like 70% of the TP was gone. This is new within the last like 10 days.

I grabbed a case of TP to, as mentioned above, top off my normal stores. Otherwise the only things I added that I might otherwise not have were a couple of four packs of these jarred peach slices I like, and then some powdered potatoes.

One interesting side note was mask wearing. Costco of course requires it, but this is the first time I saw Costco employees shirking on it. Lots of bandanas instead of masks, and many employee masks were below the nose or otherwise just "hanging there" versus in place. In the meantime, the grumpy cashier lectured me because I forgot and put my Costco card on the little conveyor divider thing, which you usually do at Costco, but they won't let their gloved hands touch the cards anymore to scan them, so she made me remove it and told me not to do it anymore.

Costco cashiers have never been particularly friendly, but the last time I was at Costco (a few weeks ago) the cashier was horrendous. Nasty, snappish, and largely non-responsive.

Yeah, I get that you're a cashier in a Costco, and that it's during the great plague. Your life choices, not mine. If I'm not yelling at you, I'd appreciate you not acting if I were.

Well, I got to King Soopers (Kroger, City Market, 38th and Sheridan) at 5:15 this AM, Monday.  Since someone mentioned a potential shortage of paper towels, that's the first thing I went for since I'm a profligate user thereof.

I was stunned to find the shelves chock-full of PT, TP, and Tissues, to the point where some was sticking out a little in the aisle, and I knocked some stuff down with my cane sticking out of the electric cart basket. (One of these days I'm going to suggest they provide cane scabbards on the carts, but not yet.  I'm also thinking of just putting a hook on my cane so I can suspend it vertically from the basket.)

Basically, without doing my own inventory of the store, I found everything I wanted except for alcohol --I'm running low on that.  So I picked up a couple of small bottles of hand sanitizer so I could keep one in the car and one in the house.

So I guess King Soopers (Kroger, City Market) has some clout or magic in re paper products.

I will say the people at this store are very helpful and courteous.

I wonder if that's because either I'm a Cute Old Coot (COC), or maybe since I'm courteous to them in the first place, or perhaps that's the way they're trained.

There's a Safeway on the way of my regular erranding route, but I haven't checked that out.

Hope springs eternal.  Or at least until 5:15 this Monday morning at the King Soopers at 38th and Sheridan, Wheat Ridge COmmierado.

I usually find the cashiers at the Costcos I have visited to be super friendly. I always joke around with them and they look like they mostly enjoy their jobs. I've only ever had a few grumps and the lady today was one of them. The lines were exceptionally long, so it might have been a "bad day" thing.

Let me know where and when.  I used to use a lot of it for cleaning glass and chrome, squirting bugs, as well as a disinfectant.  I don't understand why it's still in short supply --a spike in use by the medicos, with C-19?

People are using high-proof ethanol topically in place of hand sanitizer.

Back when I was drinking, I kept a small bottle of it in my shop for a solvent.  Started nipping at it.  Then Nipping at it.  Then Tippling at it.  And so on.  Gave me the worst hangover I ever had, and I was well-experienced in type and quality of hangovers.

Interesting suggestion that a "spike gene" mutated, thus making it easier for the virus to infect people. Might explain why younger and healthier people now seem to be the majority of newly infected. The previous mutation would have been fended off by a healthy individual. Also might explain the very large new infection rates without (at least from what I have seen) the same death rate as previously. In my state at least, cases have more than doubled, but I haven't yet seen any reports of new deaths.

Or, this was always going to happen, in any case, and all the lockdowns did was make the economy tank without making any change in the eventual progress of the disease.

Because we are ruled by cowardly and overly risk-sensitive buffoons.

Back in the day when I was homebrewing, I used Everclear to sanitize various fittings and small parts in the brewing process.  I had to drive 400 miles roundtrip to get it at an Oregon liquor store, since at that time it was not sold in Washington.

I sometimes use 91% rubbing alcohol for that.  Wouldn't 151 rum work almost as well?  (I don't think Minnesota sells 190 proof Everclear either)

If it was a P&G product, maybe.  As Kroger and P&G are both headquartered in Cincinnati.

That was the first retort that came to my mind as well. Also "white armed militias, terrorizing state capitols and spreading the virus".

This has got to be the most politicized disease in the history of the world.

There was a "thing" around here in Las Vegas where our fire department had warned against keeping hand sanitizer in the car because it could catch fire because of the heat.

A clarification has been released.  Worth reading the link:https://www.reviewjournal.com/local/las-vegas-fire-department-clears-up-hand-sanitizer-facts-2041482/#:~:text=THE%20RJ%20APP-,Las%20Vegas%20Fire%20Department%20clears%20up%20hand%20sanitizer%20facts,likely%20cannot%20start%20a%20fire.%E2%80%9D&text=As%20it%20turns%20out%2C%20not,completely%20true%20on%20social%20media.

tl;dr version -

ôBottom line, do not leave anything exposed to direct sunlight in the car (that includes cellphones left on the seat or dash, they will explode,ö he added.

A suggestion from Szymanski: Keep a small amount in the car and refill the bottle frequently so it is at full strength. ôEvery time the hand sanitizer is heated to very hot like here in Las Vegas, it loses some of its effectiveness.ö


Many years ago, when I lived in Columbus, Ohio, I had left a BIC lighter in the back window of my car.  It esploded.  No fire. When I got in the car later, there was shrapnel from the lighter itself and the butane had left a blurry smear on the rear window glass.

This has got to be the most politicized disease in the history of the world.

It's all part of the weakening, overthrow, and replacement of our way of life from capitalism to socialism.  Once we are plunged into socialism, any form of tyrannical, despotic, dictatorial rule can be implemented to enforce the tyrannical, despotic, and dictatorial socialism.

If I were a part of any of these brown-shirt-like groups causing havoc, I would be concerned for my longevity once the group's usefulness has  run its course.
