CrankyOldGuy Tests and Makes a DIY Covid Mask

I know…I keep wanting to say, “It certainly can’t get any worse.” And then…

Weirdly, after seeing what the rest of the world is doing, and the precautions they are taking to try to keep the death toll and infection rate down, it does make one feel puny when you find yourself complaining about being forced to be at home, and watch TV, and only go out for “Essential Services,” like “Liquor, Guns and Ammo.”  Man…I think I’ve seen that movie…and I’m not really sure I like how it ends. 

But now, it is likely that we are going to be asked to wear masks every time we go out, or are in places where there are more than a couple of people (like the golf course).  This wouldn’t be nearly as bad, if there were any masks to buy, and if the people who REALLY need them (the gallant nurses, doctors, and first responders subjected to this hideous killer every hour of every day) had enough, and weren’t begging the governmen(s) for help.

So…yes...we are going to have to get creative.  And I do. I will show you my efforts to make my own multi-filtered mask, as well as pass along some other great ideas I have found with a couple of quick “Googs.”

Let’s Get COVERED…

Cranky’s Guide to Drinking During the Pandemic Panic


There is no doubt about it…the “Stay at Home Lockdown” has created a whole new breed of drinkers and “self medicators” in the need to take the edge off of the panic, and cut back on the boredom.

But, I’m Here to Offer Up My Tips for Safe Drinking During the Pandemic Panic

The Real Virus Problem is Panic- REVISED…Dammit

PLEASE NOTE…I wrote this waaaaaaaaaay back on March 18th…when this thing felt a whole lot different…and the numbers were hardly beginning to percolate.  THINGS HAVE CHANGED.

However…there are still aspects to the math, and keeping a relatively positive attitude that apply.  But…only an IDIOT would ignore the changes over the past 2 weeks. And if Trump can FINALLY COME AROUND…then so can I.

My updated words and commentary in BOLD

It’s amazing to me, that in an age where the term “viral” often referred to the latest pic of some aging music star in a bikini who is “rocking it,” the term has now taken on the actual medical definition, but with the same horrible inspiration for over-reaction (or ignoring the warnings completely).

I’m just going to boldly state what should become obvious:
The REAL Virus Destroying Our Country is PANIC!!! (And whole mess of late to the game choices that are going to haunt us for generations).

Sorry Mr. President… BUT EASTER IS CANCELLED-REVISED

This is nuts…

So…yes…now the NUMBERS HAVE CHANGED…and they don’t look great.

If we all “do a good job” it will only be 100K Dead. That’s 100,000…for those who don’t understand abbreviations.  And it seems that in some states (I’m talking to YOU Texas!) they think that Old People should sacrifice themselves for the good of the cause.

HOLYFREAKSHIRT!
