  1. News from the front, another day in the trenches in NY state fighting the good fight. I can not even begin to describe the fearlessness of these young kids ( did you have that in early to mid 20s) Nurses, care partners (nurse helpers so to speak), xray techs, phlebotomist, if I missed any body sorry. Let me high lite maybe the most selfless of all our house keeping staff going in cleaning up room w/ certain COVID-19 all over, paid little all heart and balls are they. Let me also inform you that restaurants, pizza places are all sending use food unasked donated and the spread made by one one of our local churches members today was magnificent covering an entire 20 foot conference table with great homemade everything! ( I need that recipe for potato salad best I ever had) These times can bring out one of two things, today I saw the best in us..............humbled am I.
  2. I go back and forth between absolute despair and fear then stupid bravery in the course of my duties, a roller coaster my friends.
  3. From his lips to Gods ears guys, been off a couple of days tomorrow once more unto the breach.
  4. "Covid-19 is airborne for 3 hours and sticks to surfaces like metal and plastic for 6 hours up to 3 days" we are getting different info here in the states much less ominous I hope your guys are wrong because if that's he case we are truly f**ked .
  5. I agree Timelord this being said we have not the means to combat what lies ahead by a half measure. It is what it is gents this is perhaps a bit caviler but I have seen so much death. I deal w/ ALS patients (a death sentence) every week in my home care role the care given to them by their loved ones humbles me, it both wears my spirit and reinforces it as I go from death to death. Off to bed 12 hours of it tomorrow to fight the good fight despite the odds, how could you do any less.
  6. Well gents as of 8PM tonight all bars (the horror!) and restaurants are closed (only take out) in NJ. And now for a little inside baseball : As some of you know I am Respiratory Therapist front line on this and I know you hear/read that there are not enough vents to accommodate the upcoming numbers of folks who fall prey to CONVID-19 what is not reported is even w/ the vents we do not have enough Respiratory Therapists to run them. (you can only stay awake so long) I only saw this reported in one article on it now there are some Pulmonologist who can and very few nurses who can run our first line vents so I'm going to be a bit busy.................... PS Side note our front line vents are pretty easy to operate but the stock pile of emergency vents (LTVs 1000 and 1200) are a bit*h to run in comparison , work well do the job not to worry but unless you know your stuff might as well be pinball machine. These are the ones stock piled for emergencies such as this. I am sure we will as a profession handle it, we'll do 16 hours shifts if needed ( all we can by law) and get it done.
  7. I certainly hope not, if you are in good health you should get through it.This is bad folks but not a death sentence.
  8. For you guys not in the USA strangely the folks here are buying out all the toilet paper due to COVID-19, why puzzles me............................
  9. Try Trusty time in our dealer section just posted a new web address, they get shut down after a while.
  10. Fast on the Draw oldtools , thanks!
  11. WOW! What did these go for new?
  12. 7k I'll have to pass.......................
  13. I poached this from Trailboss at RWI sure he will not mind as a public service announcement. The Situation in China 06-02-20, 13:56 Folks, I've been talking to a few of the dealers either by phone or via email and the situation in GZ and Shenzen is pretty dicey. Some of them have told me that they will not be returning to work on Monday as the situation is such that they are not prepared to risk the health of their employees. Most will still be checking emails as that can be done from the safety of home but having people attend the offices and/or go to the markets is just too risky. At any rate I believe a lot of the markets will also not be opening as scheduled. In other words, if you have stuff ordered you are just going to have to be patient, you getting your watch is not worth someone catching this thing and taking it home to their children and elderly. Lives are worth more than our trinkets getting here on time and I had best not hear about anyone complaining to the dealers about delays. It may well be out of their hands anyway as the factories are also putting health first, are yet to reopen and may not do so for some time. Also one other thing, you WILL NOT catch this virus by ordering stuff from China, the virus can not survive for long outside a host.
