    Only if you get subliminal messages with the audio.  So be sure to have your corona filters up and running!

    I make a lot of jokes about these virus scares because despite the fact that I know the media likes to hype this kind of news, the fact is I'm very nervous about this kind of thing and humor is my last refuge.  I had Epstein-Barr virus in the late 80's and that messed with my immune system.  Since then, I've had a couple of cases of flu that were so bad I wasn't sure I would get make it through them.  Getting older doesn't improve my odds.  So when a highly contagious virus starts going around, I get anxious.  It's not that I'm terrified of dying- I don't want to die but of course I will and that's OK, but I don't want to die in agony of some horrid disease. 

    But as the sage said, "It's gonna be what it's gonna be."

    Well, the good news is Epstein "killed himself" but unfortunately Barr is still around taking a shit on your constitution so maybe it's best to keep a low profile.

    I would probably be a hard-core alcoholic if I lived down there- best margaritas in the world (nothing like those foo-foo drinks we make up here in California).  As many as four of them would get you plenty hammered yet with no hangover.  And you could walk into a cervesaria and get a Pacifico that tastes way better than the same brand here and only cost a quarter (in 1989 dollars).  Yee- hawww! Arriba!

    Lady at the hotel I am staying at just told me the 4th confirmed case in Canada is in Medicine Hat, Alberta.  It’s about 3 hours SE of Calgary. 
    One other in Vancouver and 2 in Toronto.

    I'm from Med Hat, haven't heard that and can't find anything on the news about it.

    Ok. I’m staying in Lethbridge so maybe she heard wrong? Said the hospital confirmed it. Could be false info.

    Could be true, maybe she has inside info.

    Funny, because I currently live in Lethbridge, was originally from Med Hat and moved from Calgary a couple of years ago.

    Small world.

    I went to college in Deathbridge! Last Chance College 1992-94 lol. Been in Cowtown since 2013.  I travel here for work sometimes, still
    have some friends in town. Come down and golf occasionally.  Sometimes meet in Claresholm or Nanton for real cheap rounds.
