No idea who anybody was except Cos and Tanner .

ETA...there was a guy who we should put into that is this shuke thread. Looked pretty close with the beard and all.

Lots of cats though.

And was that shuke spawn running off with the phone, or somebody else's kids? Good moment.

I tried to give you the power fist back (ETA...that may have come out a little...wrong), but came up with weird fingers in shocker/shaka position.

And I thought you were slb.

I know it's early, but have you guys ever tried a Quarantini?  It’s a regular Martini, but you drink it alone inside your house.

Does it taste like chicken?

I was going to put this in the covid thread...but about half a page in and #### that place.

Video my mom sent from an ER doctor at Weill Cornell here in nyc talking at length about what he suggests based on front line experience dealing with this.

Fair warning...It's long. And one guy's take. And from 4 days ago, which feels like months at this point. But interesting info, clearly laid out. 

Thanks for this @El Floppo. This is great.

I guess that depends on the kind of vodka.  If it's Absolut Chicken, then yes I would think it does taste like chicken.  Absolut has always been good at that kind of thing.

Everybody take a minute tonight (or today) to raise a glass to HeckDad.  My sister just called to tell me that he passed away at home.  Don't have details other than he fell, but he was 94 with a bad heart valve, so it may be that it just quit on him.

Anyway, the world lost a hell of a guy today, and it sucks that I have to worry about whether it's safe to be around my mom.

I do worry- he's giving different recommendations than we'd heard and followed in regards to masks, gloves, contact with surfaces... I prefer going his route- which is all about washing the hands after touching anything outside (or hitting with sanitizer) and not touching the face. gloves and masks less important... masks just so you don't touch your mouth and nose. but I just don't know.

Very sorry.  94 years, that should be celebrated.

Thanks all for the kind words.  Dad had been in poor health for quite some time, so while I can't say that it was a surprise, it was still a shock when it actually happened. Mom said he told her the past few nights that he prayed it would be his last one; he was ready. He hadn't been able to leave the house except for doctor appointments for several months, and recently not even that.  His heart was just too weak for him to be on his feet for more than a minute or two.

The one thing he absolutely did not want was to die in a hospital bed. He wanted to be at home, in the house he built himself almost 75 years ago. He was crossing the living room with his walker, and Mom said he started slumping over. She got to him and helped him to the floor and he was most likely gone at that point.  My sister - a nurse - got there within 5 minutes, and Mom had also called the nurse who lives next door to them.

I had only spoken to Dad by phone over the past few weeks, as we were out of town for a week and then didn't want to risk exposing them to anything when we got back 2 weeks ago. I think the last time I saw Dad in person was for his birthday in February. I'll remember him having a great afternoon playing euchre with his family. His mind and sense of humor were as sharp as ever, right to the end.

I'll miss him, but his kindness and strength built the man and husband I am today. I can only hope to have people think as well of me as everyone I know thought of him.

Cheers, all. Hug your loved ones today.

At the risk of being crass by following an obit with this...

But I will be hosting another Trivia Night tonight.  6:00PM Pacific time.

If we’re connected through the facebooks check your invites.  If you are not, info will be posted here.

Actually I was hoping you’d go ahead with it. Looking forward to the diversion.
