    I had to go to work. Pest frontline. Put up plexi-shields, supplied gloves and ordered two security guards at my door to protect my customers, employees and myself.
    You will not believe how ignorant some people still are. Especially eldery people.
    I am working in a big bank branch that is located inner city. Some people still do not use online-banking. I even think that they only got a bank-card to remember their name. Anyway... most of them cannot even read so....

    You are destroying my belief that all Germans are highly educated.

    I'm enjoying C-19 isolation :D

    Safest and best place to be is surfing so I'm there most days.
    Cycling is safer and better with less traffic on roads.
    I have many music projects in play - recordings, improving music theory, slide guitar and piano skills.
    Reading books and doing online courses.
    The lockdown is no issue for me :eek:

    Besides online classes for my kids, I need to find them some alternate activities, SD just called school off for the rest of the year but will continue online lessons. I will not let them facetime with their friends 24/7 or play video games 24/7 so now we have to get creative!

    I'm just hunkering down in the bunker.

    I'm adept at social distancing. I always thought it was because I was just antisocial.

    What year? It's one of my all time favorites. And do they have any Whitworth in them anymore? I suspect not.

    Stopped working early for once (6pm), plugged my Tele and softly played. 3 to 4 weeks I had not plug a guitar. And you have to be highly concentrated: Tele pups precision does not allow any finger fault or pick stress.
    Currently cooking a leek pie ( to honor all Welsh fellow Gretsch-Talkers?). Pics or it didn't happen? As soon as it's out of the oven.

    I’m so bored I bought my wife and I a pair of these electric scooters. We are terrorizing the neighborhood(we live in a gated community full of retirees!).
