My sister and her husband help his family run a small appliance in north Georgia. Recently, I remember she said they have not been able to keep freezers in stock. They actually sold ALL their appliances at one point, and they’re now having to make runs to Atlanta to get more. Business is booming!

Well, today was the opening day for shops and restaurants in our part of the state, which was broken up into 8 regions in a plan to re-engage the economy. But the “stay at home” order was just extended until June 12. Mixed messages from the governor. I’ll cut her some slack, because we also had massive flooding and wildfires in our state this week. Plague, flood, fire… and hopefully not famine.
I’m just pissed because I think that the community garden will be closed until this order is lifted. It’s mostly a food donation garden, so it’s really a pity. We were supposed to plant on June 6, so now I’m pretty sure that won’t be happening. I started 40 extra tomatoes and 20 extra peppers, so I might have to get creative. On a positive note, more kids signed up for my 4-H Garden club on Zoom, so that’s great! Maybe I can distribute my seedlings to the kids who are participating.
Meat is semi-scarce here too. I’m so glad we have a chest freezer with a good amount of ground venison still in it. We will be taking deer hunting very seriously this year (but we always do)

There is no shortage of meat or food in general here (Northern Ontario, Canada) and prices are normal.
Retail size flour and yeast are starting to come back. We had (and continue to have) larger size options available at very good prices, bargain even.
There is no famine in sight. Suppliers are being infinitely agile in adapting.

This morning as I was out in a cemetery putting flags on veterans’ graves I was pleasantly surprised. No…. a body or rotted arm didn’t reach out and shake my hand (or pull me in). One of the ladies I know that comes to the coffee house regularly asked if I wanted to sign a petition. It was to put a ballot measure to recall the governor.
I couldn’t find my pen fast enough.
Apparently there was quite a lot of people thinking the same thing…. and not the same political party either. Hopefully this ballot measure won’t be like the last one; that one was listed as a “It is non-binding / we’ll take it under advisement”. I’m buying a pitchfork, tar, a cauldron (gotta make soup for the angry hordes), and wooden matches (for both the cauldron fire and tar of poles). Only thing I need is to know when, where, what time, and take a shower beforehand.

We’re supposed to go into stage 2 reopening for some things around June 15 in NJ. Still can’t get a haircut, but if you want to go to a George Floyd protest, no restrictions at all. This lock down is starting to look like a bunch of baloney, maybe political more than anything else.
How can all of the protesters, etc., do what they’re doing and there are no virus outbreaks? Why are some Governors marching with the protesters, shoulder to shoulder, while telling you to stay home and six feet apart?
You can’t go to work, but you can go to a George Floyd protest and march with hundreds of other people. I’m sick of the lies from our government officials.

No stage 2 here. I waited for june. Called a salon and asked if the owner would cut my hair without a mask…claustrophobia.
She said, “Sure will!” I’m going in tomorrow.
It’s not illegal. They reccomend masks for close contact but that’s it.
I hear this gal cuts hair in five minutes. Curious to see her in action.
