It’s crazy!

We have been out of TP for 2 days now and haven’t been able to get any

Here is a photo of the toilet paper shelf at the supermarket

They have been putting out hand towel? Bit rough!

I thought it was only here in Aus I was feeling embarrassed as a nation for how people were fighting over TP and food.

I went to the supermarket yesterday to pick up a few things, and our paper aisle looked the same way. All the other aisles were reasonably well stocked, so I'm not sure why people are hoarding TP. It is like an old movie where there is a run on the banks "how does something like this start?"

If it comes down to it, don't flush the paper towels.

Coronavirus canceled my family’s spring break vacation plans so I:
1. Introduced my kids to my favorite board game

2. Cleaned and expanded the shop to make room for the boat and the new bandsaw

Still a few things that need to be disposed of but good progress!

John,

Two thumbs up!

Best advice I've seen... stay busy, turn off the TV!

I had the next 3 months of contracts cancelled. Already cleaned and organized the house. I have 4 bags full of clothes for good will, 6 boxes of various house hold items and a bed room set waiting to go. Thinking about putting the bedroom set on cl/ op, but i dont like the idea of people coming to my home that i dont know.

I should be spending this time building a boat, but with no money coming in. I just cant do that.

Old story, all the money in the world, no time. All the time in the world, no money.
