If you can believe it, my sister didn't even quit after watching our mother die of emphysema. She did finally quit, though, when she married a guy who was a heart/lung transplant recipient. (And if any of you can spare some prayers for Kurt during this COVID mess, I'd appreciate it.)
    Will do!

I'm really interested in @hawgrider 's rolling your own thread. If I get into rolling my own I will probably never quit.
    Well it took some doing to get started, reducing did not help one bit either.

    My father, both grandfathers, one great grandfather and one uncle died from lung cancer.

    I got serious about it when the wife was pregnant with our daughter, was my motivation that was lacking before.

    It is getting crazy here, a week ago we had 1 case, 3 days ago it was 83, yesterday is was 138 cases.

    There was a speculation on local news that cases will triple in a week.

    Most schools, are either closed or closing, with each act the rush on food and TP happens.

    The guv declares a state of emergency and the sheep stampede some more.

    The largest school system in the state, U Mass, has online for students only, no campus presence, effecting 40,000 I think.

    A friend works there and he is still going to the lab every day, ghost town he said.

    No doubt the panic and cases will increase over the next couple of weeks, along with the sheeps insanity.

    Found an unopened case of a gallon of lab grade ethyl alcohol @ 95% for my lab experiments,

    don't need to use the 190 proof drinking stuff for anymore sanitizer.

    taking it very serious.... since I have asthma. Also read in the news today that the state of Texas may recommend cancelling the remaining school session but will leave it up to the local school districts.

    and on that fine news.... my wife informed me this morning that one of the daughter has symptoms and will be getting tested today. We weren't exposed to her thankfully but we're being cautious. We are hoping it's just a normal flu/bug and not covid. She's young (mid-30's) and healthy so we feel good about her health and risk level. It's those around her.

    People are taking it seriously. Even Chewy is experiencing shipping delays now.

    They just told me four to six days. We'll see. I needed to order more digestive enzymes for one of my dogs so I added food in order to get free shipping. I don't have a desperate need for either, just topping off the tank, so to speak.
