Thanks Grant. Here’s to hoping the numbers slow soon for everyone and it becomes manageable worldwide.
grant228 2020-04-04 21:25:07
Your number of deaths is also intriguing. We have just over 5500 cases with 30 deaths all of which have been people aged 70+. Nevertheless we are thinking of you during this extraordinary time.
dave 2020-04-04 12:02:25
Grant, good question. No easy answer. Possibly it spread here sooner?. I think before it reached a particular area people tended to have little concern and believe that it never would. After all, for most world wide,, isn’t this how SARS, Ebola, and others have gone? But if you’re a statistics person and had watched the numbers as it moved to Italy, South Korea and Iran, you would know this was different. It spread way too fast and exponentially to ignore.
grant228 2020-04-03 20:11:04
Dave, I was just on the New York Times site and surprised to see how many cases Michigan has compared to others. Any ideas why?
dave 2020-04-03 16:12:14
Cubs, Ours is through April at least I think too. They are not going to try to finish the school year here in Michigan.

Here in Washington State our Governor Inslee must be a Star Wars fan. Our Stay Home, Stay Healthy has been extended to May 4th!
grant228 2020-04-01 19:11:53
Good luck, Dave, trying to negotiate the new social rules and the people who don't want to play by them. I watched a local program last night called "Planet America" which as part of its coverage reported on the prisons in New York city and what a festering mess they could become. It doesn't sound good. All the best!
dave 2020-03-31 21:00:41
Grant, I didn’t hear that. Probably. A political thing to appease the right and those that might argue that church is a necessicary service, but it wouldn’t be wise to go.
grant228 2020-03-31 07:42:54
Dave, I have just read your Governor is allowing assemblies of religion! To paraphrase John McEnroe, "She can't be serious!"
dave 2020-03-30 19:15:18
Yes it is. Thats about an hour from here, but our county is growing. The next two weeks will be bad here. The two things we hope are 1.) that we are all lucky enough to only have a mild case if and when we get it and 2) that none of us need the hospital for anything in the next 6-10 weeks because it will be tough and risky there.
grant228 2020-03-29 10:16:53
Dave, have just read in our papers that the infection rate in Detroit is pretty bad. Hope you are safe.
dave 2020-03-27 07:51:29
Grant, yes it’s a good time to get along with your house mates!
grant228 2020-03-27 06:17:00
Dave, almost two weeks ago when I said your country was not a healthy source of the virus, I was being facetious but looking at your national numbers now, you have quite an issue. I hope you're safe during this trying time. My wife and I are following the instructions and staying home. After almost 38 years together, we're lucky we get on! All the best to you and yours.
dave 2020-03-26 14:15:24
Here are some numbers I've been jotting down the last couple days. They aren't moving in the right direction yet.
dave 2020-03-26 14:09:05
I think we all know that's not possible, unfortunately, but I do think that if we all are patient and isolate for a few weeks we can get things under control quite quickly. 2 difficulties with that - at least here in America where I'm at are 1) getting some kids to believe its necessary and 2) following thorough with it; Its hard to keep staying put after a couple weeks as human nature causes many of us to want to gt up and go.
grant228 2020-03-26 08:23:50
Dave, I know crystal balls are in short supply but do you think your country will be back in full operation by Easter as predicted by your leader?
dave 2020-03-25 14:04:38
Grant, yes when I posted that graph about a week ago we had 334 cases of Corona virus in Michigan. Yesterday evening there were 1,793. Of course these are cumulative and do not take into account the ones that have recovered, so that's an equally critical number to watch. Worldwide approximately 436,000 cases have been recorded, but approximately 111,000 are shown as recovered (and potentially immune now which is important), leaving around 305,000 active cases worldwide as of this morning.
grant228 2020-03-24 18:35:55
Dave, hoping you are surviving this global threat. I write because in today's paper there is a graph showing the number of cases here in Australia that is identical to the one you posted last week. The rate of infection starts of slowly but then climbs exponentially each day. Our governments are playing catch up every day so it appears our countries have a lot in common when it comes to effective responses. The only bright spot may be we get more players!
dave 2020-03-24 12:11:14
Lis, by "sniffed" I just meant they may have picked up your password on the Internet. To change it, click on "Hi zendyk" at the top of your screen, then click "update your profile" at the top of the page, and you can update it there by supplying a new one.

Cubs, Our governor issued a similar order here in Michigan. And yes, apparently people can't survive without booze and pot.
lmcubs 2020-03-24 04:44:34
Our Governor tonight gave us the “Stay Hone, Stay Healthy” pronouncement. Only essential business and only essential travel can happen in Washington. In Oregon, breaking the Shelter in Place Order is a misdemeanor punishable by fines or jails. Both liquor stores and pot dispensaries are considered essential and can remain open.
zendyk 2020-03-24 02:24:09
Dave, sorry. "Sniffed"? I'm not familiar with that. If I want to change my password, how do I go about it?
dave 2020-03-23 12:17:04
It would seem someone sniffed your password on the internet then. So sorry about that Lis.
zendyk 2020-03-23 02:43:10
Dave, I have lived with the same person for 12 years. She doesn't even know about this site. No one uses my laptop but me. I have no idea who would want to target the site or me specifically.
dave 2020-03-22 16:10:51
Lis, do you have someone around the house that could have been on your computer being mischievous? That was my first thought but perhaps it was someone online. It appeared to be your account but I knew it wasn't you.
grant228 2020-03-22 03:02:22
I don't know, Lis! What you saw was also posted as a feature biography! Why he or she chose your name is a mystery. Some people have too much time on their hands. We will have to put our tech expert, Dave on the case!
zendyk 2020-03-21 23:46:04
OMG! I just clicked on a private message that said it was from me to you, Grant. It was disgusting. WTH? Were there things wrong in other people's accounts?
zendyk 2020-03-21 18:48:38
Grant, that freaks me out! Why MY name?
grant228 2020-03-21 07:28:06
Lis, a few days ago we were hacked! It happened during my daytime so I'm assuming I was able to remedy the damage before it was seen by those in North America. I received a private message from someone using your name and the celebrity sightings insertion you mentioned was a picture! Over here my government is playing catch-up after a very slow initial response. Supermarkets are not accepting cash, telling everyone to use cards to minimise contact. Governments are recommending schools stay open as children are thought to be low-risk. As someone who spent almost 40 years in schools, I tend to differ. Yesterday a cruise liner was allowed to disembark in Sydney of its almost 4000 passengers and crew. It was only after everyone had mingled with others off the boat that it was discovered there were virus stricken passengers! Bars, theatres and gyms remain open although everyone has been asked to observe a 4 sq metre zone of exclusion. Indoor public gatherings over 100+ are banned but our two rugby codes, AFL and soccer are allowed to continue in front of empty stadiums. If you know anything about rugby, anyone who has a communicable disease will surely transfer it in a game. It's dumb decision driven by sports bosses who have pressured governments. I think it's going to get a lot worse before it gets better.
zendyk 2020-03-21 03:24:15
When I posted my last comment, my profile pic was gone, so I went to my account. It showed my country was Nigeria(???) and under the "celebrity sightings", it said, in all caps "DICK". I corrected them both, but that was kinda scary!®    Introduction    Privacy Policy    Conditions of Use
