2 cleaning products that kill coronavirus.

Soap and Water
Just the friction from scrubbing with soap (any kind of soap) and water can break the coronavirus’s protective envelope. “Scrub like you’ve got sticky stuff on the surface and you really need to get it off,” says Richard Sachleben, an organic chemist and a member of the American Chemical Society. Discard the towel or leave it in a bowl of soapy water for a while to destroy any virus particles that may have survived.

Using antibacterial soap won’t give you added protection against the coronavirus because it kills bacteria, not viruses. You can still use it as long as you scrub.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends a diluted bleach solution (⅓ cup bleach per 1 gallon of water or 4 teaspoons bleach per 1 quart of water) for virus disinfection. Wear gloves while using bleach, and never mix it with ammonia—or anything, in fact—except water. (The only exception is when doing laundry with detergent.) Once mixed, don’t keep the solution for longer than a day because the bleach will lose potency and can degrade certain plastic containers.

“Always clean the surface with water and detergent first, since many materials can react with bleach and deactivate it,” Sachleben says. “Dry the surface, then apply the bleach solution and let it sit for at least 10 minutes before wiping it off.”

Bleach can corrode metal over time, so Sachleben recommends that people not get into the habit of cleaning their faucets and stainless steel products with it. Because bleach is harsh for many countertops as well, you should rinse surfaces with water after disinfecting to prevent discoloration or damage to the surface.

If you can’t find liquid bleach, you can use bleach tablets instead. You may have seen Evolve bleach tablets, which dissolve in water. Just follow the dilution instructions on the packaging (1 tablet is equal to ½ cup liquid bleach). A label on the bottle states the product is not a disinfectant, but chemically, it’s the same as liquid bleach. A company spokesperson at Custom Bottling & Packaging, which acquired Evolve three years ago, says the company hasn’t had the time or resources to put their product through the Environmental Protection Agency’s registration process that would allow them to make disinfecting and sanitizing claims. As of this update, Evolve is not experiencing any shortages and is supplying hospitals, research centers, and correctional facilities.


I need to do something more useful…

So I am making these for the staff at the VAMC hospital here in Sturgis South Dakota.


The Olson Mask Pattern was designed by medical professionals to be used when other surgical and N95 masks are not available. Most agree that it is the best pattern available for homemade face masks. It is curved to fit the nose and mouth area, and there is a pocket on the inside to hold an additional filter. I am making my own filters from HEPA fabric salvaged from vacuum cleaner bags.

blog photos.jpgI am using aluminium from beverage bottles for the moldable nose bridge. Elastic for the ear loops is hard to come by, sold out in local fabric stores and price gouging online. so I am using hair ties for ear loops.

I can make about five an hour. Postings will be light for a while. I could use some help, Sturgis is a small town sandwiched between Spearfish and Rapid City and I can’t find any elastic locally. If you can find some 1/8″ white braided sewing elasitic please send it to Charles Brooks, 1220 Cedar St #210, Stirgis SD 57785dritzThanks,  Charlie

The Biggest Coronavirus Myths, Busted


No, drinking water won’t flush the virus out of your mouth. Here’s how to inoculate yourself against bad Covid-19 information.

WE’RE LIVING IN uncertain, surreal times, as the coronavirus crisis worsens in the United States. As we’re struggling with a vacuum of reliable information, coronavirus myths are spreading as quickly as the disease, amplified by social media. Luckily, we’ve got Dr. Seema Yasmin, director of the Stanford Health Communication Initiative at Stanford University. In the video above, she debunks common—and even dangerous—myths about the coronavirus and the disease it causes, Covid-19.

You can’t, for instance, diagnose yourself with Covid-19 by holding your breath for 10 seconds to see if you cough. Coronavirus does affect the lungs, and indeed this is one way it kills patients. But simply holding your breath can’t tell you if the virus is affecting your lungs. “Of course, the only true way of knowing if you have Covid-19 is to get a test for the disease,” Yasmin says.

When it comes to prevention, drinking garlic tea will only make you smell bad, not stave off the coronavirus. And if you do contract Covid-19, you can’t flush it out of your mouth with hot water. And certainly don’t—and we can’t stress this enough—try to blast it out of your mouth with a blow dryer.

“I think it’s really easy to look back on those myths and say, ‘I would never fall for that,’” says Yasmin. “But in the face of so much fear and uncertainty, even the smartest people can fall for false information.”

And there are ways to inoculate yourself against such myths, Yasmin says. If you’re seeing sensationalized information that’s trying to stoke emotion, that’s a good indication it might be just an internet rumor. Always try to trace information back to the original source, something reputable like the World Health Organization or the CDC. And, of course,


Another Coronavirus Song?

A young man hired by a supermarket reported for his first day of work. The manager greeted him with a warm handshake and a smile, gave him a broom and said, “Your first job will be to sweep out the store.”

“But I’m a college graduate,” the young man replied indignantly.

“Oh, I’m sorry. I didn’t know that,” said the manager. “Here, give me the broom – I’ll show you how.”

Nailed it.Nailed it, actually.

On a senior citizens bus tour.

While the passengers were unloading to do some sightseeing, one elderly lady stopped and whispered in the driver’s ear.

She said, “Driver, I believe that I was sexually harassed!”

The driver didn’t think much of her complaint, but promised he would check into it soon.

Later, that same day, as the passengers were unloading again, a second little old lady bent down and whispered in his ear, “Sir, I believe I was sexually harassed!”

This time, he figured he’d better look into it.

A few passengers had remained on the bus, and he decided to go back and question them, to find out if they knew what was going on.

He found one little old man crawling along the bus floor beneath the seats and stooped down to question him.

“Excuse me sir, could I help you?”

The elderly man looked up and said, “Well, sonny you sure can. I’m blind, I lost my toupee and I’m trying to find it…”

The man continued, “I thought I’d located it twice, but they were parted in the middle, and mine is parted on the side!”

The many bears of coping.

Sometime this year, American taxpayers will likely receive another economic stimulus. It is indeed a very exciting program, and I’ll explain it by using a Q&A format:

Q: What is an Economic Stimulus?
A: It is money that the federal government will send to taxpayers.

Q: Where will the government get this money?
A: From taxpayers.

Q: Is the government simply giving me back my own money, then?
A: No, only a smidgen of it.

Q: What is the purpose of this payment?
A: The plan is for you to use the money to purchase a high definition television set, a new iPad, or a new SUV, thus stimulating the economy.

Q: Isn’t that stimulating the economy of China?

Below is some helpful advice on how to best help the U. S. Economy with your stimulus check. Use it wisely:

* If you spend the stimulus money at Walmart, the money will go to China or Sri Lanka.

* If you spend it on gasoline, the money will go to the Arabs.

* If you purchase a computer, it goes to India, Taiwan, or China.

* If you purchase fruits and vegetables, it will go to Mexico, Honduras, and Guatemala.

* If you buy an efficient car, it will go to Japan or Korea.

* If you purchase useless stuff, it goes to Taiwan.

* If you pay your credit card off or buy stock, it will go to management bonuses and   they will hide it offshore.

Instead, keep the money in America by:

(1) Spending it at yard sales.

(2) Going to a ballgame.

(3) Spending it on prostitutes.

(4) Buy Beer.

(5) Get a tattoo.

(These are the only American businesses still operating in the United States.)

CONCLUSION: Go to a ballgame with a tattooed prostitute you met at a yard sale and drink beer all day.

‘So cute! What are their names?’ Indian couple calls newborn twins COVID and CORONAالهند: زوجان يطلقان اسمي «كوفيد» و«كورونا» على توأمهما
Coronavirus fever has taken a strange turn in India, with a couple naming their newborn twins Corona and Covid – reportedly to remind them about the hard times they are enduring amid the epidemic.

As India is under a nationwide lockdown aimed at stopping the spread of coronavirus, a couple from the Indian city of Raipur found unusual inspiration from the situation.

They decided to name their boy Covid and their girl Corona.

The 27-year-old mother told PTI news agency that these will be their names for now, but that they might change them later.

“When the hospital staff also started calling the babies as Corona and Covid, we finally decided to name them after the pandemic,” she said.

Indeed the virus is dangerous and life-threatening but its outbreak made people focus on sanitation, hygiene and inculcate other good habits. Thus, we thought about these names.

India, with a population of almost 1.4 billion people, so far has 2,567 confirmed cases of coronavirus and 72 deaths.

The Wedding

On their way to get married, a young Catholic couple is involved in a fatal car accident. The couple found themselves sitting outside the Pearly Gates waiting for St. Peter to process them into Heaven. While waiting, they began to wonder: Could they possibly get married in Heaven?

When St. Peter showed up, they asked him. St. Peter said, “I don’t know. This is the first time anyone has asked. Let me go find out,'” and he left. The couple sat and waited, and waited. Hours passed and the couple were still waiting. While waiting, they began to wonder what would happen if it didn’t work out; could you get a divorce in heaven?

Several hours later, St. Peter finally returned, looking somewhat bedraggled. “Yes,” he informed the couple, “You can get married in Heaven.” “Great!” said the couple, “But we were just wondering, what if things don’t work out? Could we also get a divorce in Heaven?”

Saint Peter, red-faced with anger, slammed his clipboard onto the ground. “What’s wrong?” asked the frightened couple.

“OH, COME ON!,” St. Peter shouted, “It took me six hours to find a priest up here! Do you have any idea how long it’ll take me to find a lawyer?”

Do it again!

Beware, the wind

A gentleman is preparing to board a plane, when he hears that the Pope is on the same flight. “This is exciting,” thinks the gentleman. “Perhaps I’ll be able to see him in person.”

Imagine his surprise when the Pope sits down in the seat next to him.

Shortly after take-off, the Pope begins a crossword puzzle. Almost immediately, the Pope turns to the gentleman and says, “Excuse me, but do you know a four letter word referring to a woman that ends in ‘unt?’”

Only one word leaps to mind. “My goodness,” thinks the gentleman, “I can’t tell the Pope that. There must be another word.” The gentleman thinks for quite a while, and then it hits him.

Turning to the Pope, the gentleman says, “I think the word you’re looking for is ‘aunt.’”
“Of course,” says the Pope, looking stunned. “Do you have an eraser?”

This man stares long distances...

Jesus Christ

A drunk staggers out of a bar and runs into two priests. He goes over to the first priest and says, “Dude, I’m Jesus Christ!” And the priest says, “No son, you’re not.”

So the drunk goes over to the second priest and says, “Man, I’m Jesus Christ!” Then the priest says, “No son, you’re not.”

Finally, the drunk had enough and said, “Here, I’ll prove it.” He walks back into the bar with both priests

The bartender looks up, sees the drunk and says, “Jesus Christ, are you back AGAIN?”

Diary of a Quarantined Man: Day 19 –  Toilet paper.

If you surround yourself in a giant fort of toilet paper and tie it together with baby wipes it takes the power away from COVID-19. I built the largest toilet paper castle I could. NASA says you can see it from space.

I recommend each of you go out and buy as much toilet paper as possible and bury yourself underneath it. Toilet paper is an unlimited and cheap resource available to us all so no excuses.AOB-19

Coast Guard Tells Cruise Ships With COVID-19 Cases To Stay Away From U.S. Ports

Foreign-flagged ships are the norm in the cruise industry. By registering ships in the Bahamas, Panama and other countries, cruise companies can avoid U.S. taxes as well as employment and environmental laws. But now, the Coast Guard is telling those companies that their ships should seek medical care in the countries where they are registered, rather than rely on the U.S.

Cruise ships docked at PortMiami on Tuesday. The U.S. Coast Guard has been working with cruise companies to bring people off of ships stricken with the coronavirus, but a new bulletin also says foreign-flagged ships should not rely on U.S. help.

The U.S. Coast Guard is telling foreign-flagged cruise ships to be prepared to care for people with COVID-19 for an “indefinite period of time” at sea or to seek help from countries other than the U.S., citing a health care system that is being overwhelmed. The instructions are in a new safety bulletin that took effect this week along the southern Atlantic coast, including Florida – which is reporting more than 6,700 coronavirus cases, as of Tuesday evening.

If a cruise ship must send someone ashore for medical care, its owner will be responsible for essentially every step of the trip, from arranging an evacuation to hiring a private ambulance and ensuring the person has a spot in a hospital. But the Coast Guard bulletin, signed by Rear Adm. E.C. Jones of the 7th District based in Miami, also says it could be difficult to find any facility in South Florida that can take new COVID-19 patients.

“Medical facilities in the Port of Miami, for example, are no longer accepting MEDEVAC patients due to limited hospital capacity and it is expected that neighboring counties will follow suit,” wrote Jones, whose Coast Guard district includes Florida, Puerto Rico, Georgia and South Carolina.

The new medical requirements apply to any vessel carrying more than 50 people. It also singles out cruise ships that are registered in the Bahamas – referring to many of the ships owned by large cruise lines such as Carnival, Royal Caribbean and Norwegian.

“Foreign flagged vessels that loiter beyond U.S. territorial seas, particularly those registered to The Bahamas, that require a MEDEVAC to a shoreside facility should seek flag state support prior to seeking support from the limited facilities in the U.S.,” Jones wrote.

The cruise ship industry is currently under a 30-day suspension of all trips from the U.S. that took effect on March 14. But dozens of ships remain at sea.

The Coast Guard memo was first reported by the Miami Herald, which gives this accounting of the current situation off the Florida shore:

“Seventeen ships are lined up at Port Miami and Port Everglades, with more than a dozen others hovering miles offshore. Most have only crew aboard, but several still carrying passengers are steaming toward South Florida ports. In SEC filings Tuesday, Carnival said it has more than 6,000 passengers still at sea. New sailings were halted by all major lines on March 13.”

News of the Coast Guard bulletin emerged as a Carnival-owned Holland America seeks a port for the Zaandam, a cruise ship on which four people have died and nearly 200 people were sickened by suspected COVID-19. The company wants the ship to dock in Fort Lauderdale; several countries have denied permission for the ship to dock and disembark passengers.

Stimulus Bill Filled With Wasteful Spending

Despite being filled with money for museums, trains, and international aid, Senators unanimously approve the package.

Sierra Dragon's Breath : Pelosi and Van Hollen put lipstick on a ...

On Wednesday evening, members of the United States Senate voted unanimously to approve a $2 trillion relief bill aimed at relieving the American public and the economy in light of the fallout from the Chinese coronavirus.

American taxpayers, however, are rightly up in arms over the waste in the bill, which totals up to $340 billion in new government spending for items seemingly unrelated to the virus.

Let’s take a look at some of the spending approved in the bill:

$300 million to the Social Security Administration
This money, however, would not be going directly to senior citizens. Instead, the funds are directed “to help SSA keep up with key workloads, make up for lost productivity, and otherwise improve the ability of the agency to serve the public.”

In other words, more money for bureaucratic overhead.

$1.018 billion to Amtrak
Lawmakers claim the government railroad funds are needed “for operating assistance to cover revenue losses related to coronavirus. In addition, funding is provided to help states pay for their share of the cost of state-supported routes.”

But Amtrak has never turned a profit since its creation in 1971, chronically relying on billions of dollars in government subsidies to keep the trains moving. In essence, the federal government is doubling up on the sunk cost fallacy.

$353 million to the United States Agency for International Development
That’s right. In a bill aimed at helping the American people, hundreds of millions of dollars have been allocated to assist other countries. $258 million is specifically marked for “international disaster assistance” in order to “continue to address humanitarian and health needs in coronavirus-affected areas abroad.”

$350 million for Refugee Resettlement
You thought that during times of crisis, the federal government would be putting Americans first? Think again. Slipped into the stimulus bill is $350 million designated for noncitizen refugees, migrants, and immigrants, while millions of Americans file for unemployment.

$150 million in National Endowments for the Arts and Humanities
Unbelievably, the bill approved by the Senate includes money for the arts, including “funding to state arts agencies and other partners in an effort to help local, state, and regional communities provide continued access to cultural organizations and institutions of learning.”

And speaking of the arts…

$25 million for the Kennedy Center
The Kennedy Center, a performing arts center in Washington D.C., is slated to receive money for “deep cleaning, increased teleworking capabilities, and operating and administrative expenses to ensure the Center will resume normal operations immediately upon reopening.”

$75 million for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting
This is the organization that subsidies PBS and NPR stations across the country. The stimulus package includes funds “for stabilization grants to maintain programming services and to preserve small and rural public telecommunication stations.”

So, don’t worry. Big Bird and liberal radio talk shows will be taken care of.

These are just a few of the egregious earmarks contained within the coronavirus stimulus bill, which now heads to the U.S. House of Representatives. They are expected to pass the legislation on Friday.

It’s my birthday and I can’t even go out for dinner.

Online toilet paper calculator will tell you how long your stash will last.

As households continue to stock up on toilet paper — emptying shelves across the country — a new website is attempting to answer the question: How much TP do we really need?

How much toilet paper .com is a website created by student software developer Ben Sassoon and artist Sam Harris, both based in London, in response to the coronavirus pandemic. The tool calculates just how long your stash of TP will last you during a quarantine.

The idea came to them naturally, while talking about how much toilet paper they used, and how that would change during the pandemic.

Thus, the website was born.

The layout is simple. Users enter how many rolls of toilet paper they have and how many times they visit the smallest room in the house.

If you scroll to the “Advanced Options” section, you can really get detailed, customizing the average number of wipes per trip, the number of sheets per wipe, sheets on the roll, and people in the house.

More than 2 million people have used the tool, the website says, and the average user has a whopping 500% more toilet paper than they need for quarantine.

The whole point of the tool is to reduce the toilet paper shortage around the world, which has begun as folks panic-buy rolls out of fear of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

“Not everyone is able to get to a store and stock up on toilet roll. Don’t be selfish,” the website says bluntly.

Demand for toilet paper has jumped

The sudden high demand of toilet paper has resulted in the industry working hard to meet the raised need, said the American Forest & Paper Association, an industry group representing paper product makers.

Last week, some orders from retailers nearly doubled, said Georgia Pacific, which makes Angel Soft and Quilted Northern toilet paper. The company shipped 20% more than its normal capacity.

How Much Toilet Paper?
