Well, it´s been along time.
I was wandering if we all checked in here and tell eatch other that we are okei, the world news are all over us,and some are correct and other not. Here in Iceland we have nearly 1000 infected, 10000 in Isolation,
we can´t get together and are told to stay home as most of the world is doing, My family is okei still we are, but remember we all can get this virus, so may God be with you all and stay save , don´t forget to play and make music and sing us through this, all the best from sunny cold Eastern region of Iceland N Atlantic Ocean .

Mrs Steve and I are fine. We live three miles out of Bude, in the middle of nowhere, and have to go into town to shop. We also shop for another couple who are older than us and who are self-isolating. On our way home we stop on a cliff top to go for a walk. There's hardly anyone out and about and there are huge open spaces. The weather's lovely at the moment. My 91-year-old mum is in a care home ten minutes' drive away but I haven't been allowed to visit her for two weeks, and she's too deaf to use the phone. I've been writing lots of letters to her. We can't visit or be visited by our children or grandchild. The supermarkets round and about have organised themselves very well to maintain social distancing, except for Lidl, who have done next to nothing and which is full of shoppers who are ignoring the guidance. I won't be going there again after my trip this morning to shop for our friends. If they want us go shop from now on, they'll have to pay Morrisons prices!

Hi Skarpi - what a timing - today after a very long time I listened to a CD "Rosin Okkar" (you, Rosa and Helgi) which I got from you in Portaferry.

And now you are writing here ...

I am fine, though working from home - we have 4 positive cases (at least I know of 4) in my company, 2 of them recoved after having a mild version, 1 still in hospital after 3 weeks, 1 I don't know about.

I am in Munich, Germany.

All well here (Southampton, UK) - myself, wife, sons and daughter, and other relatives.


One nephew's wife is concerned because she is a nurse and expecting to give birth in around two weeks. She has been told her husband is not allowed to be with her at the birth. Then when she gets home of course all the relatives are barred from fussing, helping, giving them a break and so forth. So that's not good, but it could be a lot worse.

Another nephew - his brother - is an actor, so no work in the foreseeable future. Otherwise, everyone's job seems to be ok at the moment.

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.

I (from a distance) join Charmion and himself in working from home (contract web content editor) as a recent retiree in the region around Dallas in North Texas, USA. I was self-isolating before it was a thing after knee replacement surgery in mid-February. I have ventured out a few times to small grocery stores (easier to walk in and less crowded).

Now that the six-foot rule is in place I try not to go out at all because I live (alas) in a Republican (think Trump's party) state, where a lot of them seem to echo their witless leader in thinking that this is "overblown" and a lot of people can't be arsed to keep their distance. And the other day I was surprised at a counter to turn around and find a woman right behind me with her cart. When I pointed to the line on the floor five feet behind her that the store had posted as the waiting place, she wanted to argue that she can measure and blah blah blah. More like her I can do without. I fear members of the dismissive GOP party are going to take a lot of others with them. I don't want to be a victim of such willful ignorance. This is a real disadvantage to having a "populist" president, who is busier being offended by frank questions from reporters and governors who aren't nice to him, who argues that ventilators aren't really needed (he's a doctor now?) and is always keeping his eye on his stock portfolio.

I just ordered a Kindle copy of David Quammen's book Spillover. He's a great science writer, but I missed this one when it came out in 2012.

"[Mr. Quammen] is not just among our best science writers but among our best writers, period." ?Dwight Garner, New York Times

The next big human pandemic?the next disease cataclysm, perhaps on the scale of AIDS or the 1918 influenza?is likely to be caused by a new virus coming to humans from wildlife. Experts call such an event “spillover” and they warn us to brace ourselves. David Quammen has tracked this subject from the jungles of Central Africa, the rooftops of Bangladesh, and the caves of southern China to the laboratories where researchers work in space suits to study lethal viruses. He illuminates the dynamics of Ebola, SARS, bird flu, Lyme disease, and other emerging threats and tells the story of AIDS and its origins as it has never before been told. Spillover reads like a mystery tale, full of mayhem and clues and questions. When the Next Big One arrives, what will it look like? From which innocent host animal will it emerge? Will we be ready?


I will be home reading, along with my online work and putting in a new garden (slowly, because the knee is coming along but isn't 100% yet).

Fit and well here in Rouge Towers - walked most of the way to town, but wimped-out and took the bus for the other 2.5 miles, only passenger. Met up with GF and queued (with markings at 2 metres) just to get into the supermarket. Empty shelves a lot. Walked back at least 2 of the miles - that bus was empty too. The bus co. state they are not running all on the timetable - obvious why.

Hubby and I are both well. Living in North Lincs there are only 5 reported cases in the entire area although my bank in local town has just closed down following a suspected case which will make life difficult as I need to transfer some money to pay large bills! In the meantime I go our shopping and my hubby goes out early mornings to the main drain to take some exercise and view the wildlife. Nobody around at that time of the day. Keep well all and keep making music.

Hubby and I are well in Newcastle, NSW Australia. He has been working from home for a week so far and I am retired. We plan to get our out-of-control garden into some sort of order, including the vege patch.

The supermarkets here are very well organised, although there are a lot of empty shelves for some items. The special access hour for the elderly - I guess that's us! - and people with a disability has been fantastic and there are social distancing marks on the floor and a security person at the entrance asking everyone to use hand sanitiser before being allowed in. Very civilised.

The blood & plasma donation centre is still open so I am donating as often as I am allowed because there will be less eligible donors than usual due to the risk of infection.

My twice per month session group has sadly had to cancel further sessions until this pandemic gets more under control. This will be the first real break for this session group in nearly 40 years. I'll have to commit to practising music on my own. Not as much fun.

In splendid isolation at home in Dunfermline. I live alone anyway (apart from my cat)so not too bad for me I've not been out since last Saturday apart from one short walk to the post box. My nearby family look out for me, bless 'em, stocked up on most things before supermarket madness set in!. My newsagent is doing a grand job by changing his opening times in order to deliver our papers, as he has no delivery boys. As yet I haven't got round to doing all the "creative" stuff I had planned, but, ironically, plenty time for them.
So far so not too bad.
Love and best wishes to you all
Stay safe

Where did my nice note to skarpi go? I was the first to post on this thread (after skarpi that is).

Anyway the virus is here, my kid's sweetie's boss has it and same kid's coworker is out sick with so-far unidentified fever... but kid and sweetie have been declared Essential so they have to keep going to work.

Kid and I had dinner a week ago, so just in case I am self-quarantining for another week. I am fine, though. Bored but neither lonely nor depressed. Which amazes me, frankly.

Looking for complicated recipes... Skarpi, stay well, and thanks for checking.

Oh, yeah: here being Charlottesville, Virginia.

Greetings, Scarpi in Iceland!
We here in Maleny (Sunshine Coast Hinterland of Queensland, Australia) seem to be managing okay (maybe coz we are not near a city).
Though sadly, my Choir, Yoga, and QiGong classes have now all closed.
Another unfortunate change is that we are now legally reduced to Take Away coffees, rather than lazing around, chewing the fat with our friends, rain or shine, at the excellent local Cafes!!!
However, Australia-wide, SO, SO many folks no longer have a job, a career, or a business, or even a Place of Business and things are definitely NOT looking good for the future.
It will be a Brave New World indeed, for those of us left, in the glorious Land of Oz.
..... sigh .....
I am so very fortunate to have wonderful friends, family and neighbours, who all look out for me and the Community.
Once I clean and de-clutter my house, my "reward" is to get another feline companion (it's been 4 months since my beloved Hector died), and sadly there are increasing numbers of surrendered pets now looking for a new "Forever Home" :(
However, I spend most of my days at the computer, and have done the last 6 years since My Beloved passed over, so though I am quite used to Social Distancing and even Isolation, I just wish I made better coffee, LoL!! :)

Cheers to one and all !!

Himself and I are spending our time at home in Tamworth which is in northern New South Wales, Oz......just up the road from Helen in Newcastle. (a four hour drive is 'just up the road' in Oz!) We are doing well, also venturing out for the Olde Phartes' early shopping hour when supplies are needed. Next venture may have to be tomorrow morning at sparrowfart because we will eat the last of the dark chocolate tonight, and to be chocolate-less would never do.

Much the same here as everywhere else, everything has been cancelled. Choir is off, ukulele groups are off. Volunteering 'jobs' are off. One cannot go for a stroll along the main drag expecting to stop in for coffee at any of our excellent cafes unless one wants a takeaway - but a lot of the fun in our regular coffee stops is the people watching it entails while sipping on said coffee, and now there are no people to watch. Which is a Good Thing, because it means people are heeding warnings and staying home.

Stay safe and stay sane, folks!

Liz the Squeak, Phoebe are fine here in London. The streets are pretty quiet, every day seems like Sunday morning. The supermarkets seem to be getting their stocks in order and although we can't always get our favourite items the necessary stuff is there. We live in a part of east London with lots of Victorian terraced housing and lots of corner shops which seemed to stock stuff when the supermarkets were selling out.
The 'lockdown' in the UK is pretty lax, we're allowed out to shop for necessities, or to walk the dog and for one form of exercise day for which there seems to be no time limit. It doesn't appear to be enforced although there are stories of traffic police stopping caravanners and telling them to go home. Some parks have been closed after so many people flocked to them (before the lockdown) that social distancing was impossible. The people that used to do all their exercise in gyms seem to be appearing on the streets now.

All good here in my little (pop. 25k) town on the edge of The Lincolnshire Backwoods. My Border Terrier and I get our designated ‘one exercise-period per day’ by means of a 90-120 minute walk (3 to 4 miles), mostly along a section of our river-bank where it’s unusual to see any other human being. Our local Tesco has an ‘OAPs-only’ hour on three days per week, and numbers of people permitted in the store at one time are very strictly limited, trolley-handles are wiped after use by a store employee but I wear disposable nitrile gloves anyway, so I’m not too concerned.

Mrs. Backwoodsperson is an ‘Essential Worker’, but she’s able to work at home most of the time, only having to go to the office, where there’s only one other employee in attendance and in a different office, for an hour or so per day, so we’re pretty comfortable with that.

There are, of course, distinct benefits to sticking close to home - the house is unusually clean and tidy, my guitars are getting considerably more playing-time than normal, and I’m trying my hand at songwriting again - unfortunately with not a great deal of success so far!

Stay safe, stay well everybody!

Here in Sydney, on the edge of the CBD near the beautiful Harbour (tho it is hidden by lots of buildings) we are in self isolation, but I go out each day to buy the newspaper & get a few groceries, one day I even got toilet paper!!!

I'm sending lots of emails & making lots of calls & receiving lots of calls, too.

My craft groups are cancelled (2 per week & one per fortnight), all concerts & sessions are cancelled, all libraries are closed (when I run out of Library books I have lotsa' books of my own to re-read!)

Not many people are around & most of us do keep our distance, but this is backpacker land & some are determined to have FUN! & PARTY!

I'm working on current craft projects & will soon tart on a big one I've been meaning to get on with for at least 3 years, a blanket/quilt of t-shirt motifs, fortunately I have some very experienced quilter friends to ask including JennieG (who like then others has never made a t-shirt quilt)

I'm also scanning & blogging archives of my folk club, and doing on-line jigsaws & paper crosswords.

Here in Juneau, Alaska, population about 31000, we reportedly have 5 cases of confirmed with either one or two deaths, depending upon whom one believes. Alaska itself, has of today 102 confirmed cases, the preponderance grouped around military bases.

I live in a complex of about 65 persons, most of us over age 65, and so far as I know, no one is currently ill. It appears that most of us are staying home- when I take my little dog out 3 or 4 times a day I rarely see anyone. I spend my days drawing portraits and landscapes, listening to music and watching TV. I would like to tune in political news just once or twice a day but so far I don't have that much self control.

I have to keep reminding myself of the fact that previous generations' lives have been far more constrained than mine currently is. There is one delicious moment in the day- when I first awake and have not yet been slammed with the knowledge of the day.

Hi Skarpi! I love knowing that I have a friend in Iceland, and a very talented one at that.

We have two pairs of Great Tits in our garden, and they've started up with their incessant "Teacher! Teacher! Teacher!" on and on until we could scream. I think it's either a mating call or a territorial signal. Very irritating.
But the wood pigeons are still making us laugh. When we put bread scraps and bird food out on the lawn, they make a call which sounds exactly like "Fooood! Fooood!"
Magnolias are in full bloom around the village, and most trees & shrubs are in leaf. Our over-wintering Canada geese are honking overhead as they muster for the long flight home.
Haven't seen our village Mad Swans yet (the pair that waddle down the middle of the village street with their poor cygnets struggling along behind)
These lovely signs of Nature carrying on as usual are very reassuring during the present pandemic lockdown situation.

Doing fine in Silver Spring, Maryland. Have food and paper products for several weeks. (I made a huge pot of beef stew last week to supplement various frozen stuff.)
Will need to look for milk and fresh veggies soon.. but cows always need to be milked, so I hope supplies are steady.

Beginning Spring yard work cutting vines and digging out the lawn mower. The street is pretty quiet, but I see more people walking dogs than usual. It's no problem being able to walk and be outside here.

Hey all! Been a LONG time since I peeked into Mudcat. Parenting a hyperactive preschooler will do that to you.

So far we are okay here in MD. My trade association switched to all-telework back on March 16th. Sheryl was originally going to to her lab at NIH (*NOT* working on coronavirus) all week but is now working from home 2 days a week.

We have a nanny coming in any weekdays it's just me at home. It's a risk, but I can't do work just in the early AM or late PM like some people since my job involves lots of conference calls and webinars.

Finding most things I need in the nearby Safeway except TP. That I had to show up at Target right at opening to score a pack.

Looking for good concerts to stream and perhaps circles to join. Watching a lot from my friends in the filk community. Only challenge is we are a NO FACEBOOK household, so we're out of luck when performers rely on Facebook Live. Can do just about anything else.

Gary

Gary, that is dangerous, the nanny coming and going. Perhaps she should stay with you during the duration?

All is well in Nova Scotia, Canada.
Outside of a local daily walk,and online grocery pick ups, we have been "stay at homes for the past two weeks (spouse, a techie, works from home).
Today, our premier repeated the message "stay the blazes home". Methinks that he was thinking the "F" word.

Good one, Sandra. Some of the popup YouTube performers haven't figured out how to capture just the song and not the empty room echo behind them. Passing this on.

Our daughter, who is a nurse practitioner, has quarantined my wife and me here in Vermont. She says Vermont is prepared for any virus surge, but of course, everyone is anxious. I am working on a new recording project in my basement. Stay home everyone, stay safe.

My step-daughter and her husband just delivered me a plentiful supply of toilet rolls because he says I'm full of s**t!!
Doesn't a crisis bring out the best in us :-]
BTW they take very good care of me and it is much appreciated.
My newsagent is delivering all the papers himself as all his paperboys are stuck at home.
If I wasn't so idle I would have loads to do (garden etc) but maybe I'll be glad I left everything for a while if the lockdown forecasts are correct.
Take the best care everybody
Charlie

Hello, all.

I haven't been here in quite a while, either, but I occasionally look things up in the db, and am in contact with some folks on Facebook. I'm doing okay here in Michigan. Love to everyone.

Maryanne

Gosh, Skarpi! A long time since I've seen your name. Mind you, that's a product of neither of us being very regular posters these last few years, rather than anything more sinister.

Hurrah for Iceland! I won't say you're an island of calm at the moment, but you do seem to be being a bit more sensible than some. The last figures I saw for your lot suggested a death rate of ~0.25% for Covid, in line with seasonal flu (a little bit more serious). Yet the world is reacting like Covid is Ebola. Ho hum. If you're willing to do a bit of your own looking, you'll find there's lots of reasons to think that Covid is not as bad as is being made out. If you're vulnerable (or in regular contact with someone that is), take care. If you're not... Quit panicking. There are worse things in the world to worry about.

Yes, I'm still going, folks. To the huge disappointment of Mr Shaw, I daresay. ;-) Curiously enough, Steve, my Mum is 90 tomorrow! Family party called off weeks ago, unsurprisingly, but the Grand Old Girl is still going strong & not especially deaf, so I can phone her & will!

My dear husband and I are doing fine in Kansas City. The only cases in our circle are some neighbors of a good friend. She lives on the sixth floor, and there are three people in hospital on the second floor. All are elderly.

Our home is being renovated, and today we are sweeping and vacuuming construction dust. I better get back to it.
