CET and I are safe and well in Stratford, Ontario. We are self-employed pensioners, so we work at home all the time anyway. The biggest changes in our routine is shopping at the crack of dawn, the hour reserved for "vulnerable" groups at the supermarket, and staying home on Sunday mornings because all the churches are shuttered.

Our town has a big, important repertory theatre festival that runs all summer. Not this year; the Stratford Festival is off until the beginning of June at the earliest, and the related tourism-based businesses in town, especially the restaurants, are staring at bankruptcy.

Like most Canadians, we are socially responsible folks in Perth County, so we stand six feet away from each other in line at the bank and take care to walk the long way around people we meet when taking our solitary walks.

Skarpi, so glad to see you on the board today. Likewise MudGuard. Please give Frau Merkel our best wishes; I'm so sorry she's retiring and taking her common sense with her.
