Re: Coronavirus: It's inside the White House

It was interesting viewing from my office today. Second day back (we are allowing 20% of workers back) and my new socially distanced office looks right at Bethesda Naval. I figured something was going on when the first 5 military helicopters came by.

On the “worse optics ever” front, Trump toured a Honeywell plant making masks, sans mask while “Live and Let Die” blared over the loudspeaker.

Re: On a Personal Level--Coronavirus COVID-19 Cancellations, etc.

Ya know what else is being hoarded? Zinc. I had no idea until I buy it it. Amazon is backlogged. Other than a handful of very low dose zinc and multi-mineral combos, it's unavailable until late April or longer. Even the ones that might be available later in April will not reach the buyers until mid...

Have any of y’all tried Shipt for groceries? They buy everything on your list, drive it to your house and leave it in the front porch with a text that it is there. All for $10. Tried it today and it was great. Had to make quite a few substitutions and if course no toilet paper but still worthwhile. ...

Re: Stock Market

Interesting little side note about interest rates... 30 year fixed mortgages are actually higher now than they were a month ago. By a lot. Banks don’t seem to believe that what the Fed is doing is sustainable. I wanted to refinance but rates today are 3/4 of a point higher than our original mortgage...
