I'm just going to assume that's a light hearted comment.

2 family members are home out of work. Good news is supper is on the table every nite when I get home from work. Fresh cookies, too. Bad news is son playing COD with his bros. online all hours of the night, waking me up.

More good news, gas is cheap.

That old Zeppelin stuff is so good. Trouble is, I have heard it so much thru the years that I am tired of it. But like has been said, every once in awhile you catch one of their tunes and think "Holy shit, that stuff was good."

If you guys are looking for a fresh take on the Zeppelin stuff, the live album "How the west was won" is fucking killer.

You better get those materials now!

You really think?  I guess I've been betting on the supply chains going on in perpetuity, but you're right.. I've got nothing to base that on.

I had to purchase a new Chapin sprayer today. At Dicks in Burnaby I had to call my order in from the parking lot and they brought it out to me. Our structural and concrete divisions have stockpiled lumber and other consumables on the recommendation of our suppliers.

Well fuck.

I sell construction products for specialty acoustics.  We are still operating but our main product line is from a NY company that found a case of COVID on their shop floor over a week ago which stopped them in their tracks.  They are shut down until after Easter now, at least.  That is the problem with chains.  It only takes losing one link.

I haven't heard that one yet.  I am a big fan of the BBC Sessions.  Some great blues tracks.

My mom and step dad who own a 3 acre ranch, with half a dozen chickens, a hot tub, fire pit, covered 2 car garage converted to a semi-outdoor lounge space, 4 bedroom bungalow w/ a sewing room, a woodworking room, a pension and a second rental home were complaining about having to stay home.

It took a lot of restraint not to fucking lose it on them, living in a ~650 sq foot apartment with my wife and 2 year old, both of us out of work with my wife facing the prospect of losing her business she's worked 3 years on.

Yeah, anybody who doesn't have a kid below 3 should STFU

Now now, I thought we were all this in together?

I've been going into work, nearly caught up now. Staying home from now on until we have a better picture of the situation on Vancouver Island. I figure by the end of next week we'll know a lot more. My expenses are very low so I'll be okay.

I wasn't trying to get all "WELL, AS A PARENT...." on anyone so sorry if that's how that came across. 

Bottom line is I'd kill for their fucking space.

Try boxing up teenagers. STFU

Hahaha All good.

Yesterday was super tough. The nearly 3 year old had about 4 serious fits. He usually has one a day.

I'd take a teenager all day. There is literally no reasoning with his meltdown.

Before hitting play: "Yeah, she's gonna suck"

After: "Holy fuck!"

I just built one of those DIY manual things. Made me realise I could manual pretty well anyway. After 10 minutes of messing around I could do 20 secs.
