Thanks Jim, We are OK and doing what we can. This too shall pass. Looking forward to the rescheduled events in Sept and our cruise, Ft Lauderdale to San Diego, through the Panama canal in Nov.

Dear friends,
we are in really danger, not only Italy but the whole world.
The virus isn't so much deadly but is really fast to spread and almost one of six infected goes really bad and need tu be intubated and sedated in intensive care.
This is the real problem too much people needs intensive care in the same time and we don't have enough to cure all.
The most of the dead had health problems and are over 60 (too young!) but there are healthy young too.

We are closed at home, only one could go to the market or to get medicines.

Stay at home, don't hug, shake hands or kiss anyone. stay over 1mt away from other people, wash your hand thousand times deeply.

Don't be worry, but prevent the infection risks.

Please stay safe, an hug from Italy.

News from Spain

Spain is in alert because coronavirus. School, universities, restaurants, cinemas are closed for govern order. Industries, como of the work but with the workers far away each other's. People are at home, it is forbidden  go out, we only go out if we go to the supermarket, hospital or emergency.

Army, for first time in the history of Spain, is in the streets of the first cities of Spain.

Italy is worst, France is bad, germany too, etc.

In Spain 500 deads, 12000 infected and this numbers increasing. The virus is with us only one month. It is important we act very first, virus don't know about borders, money, or anything.

In this moment Europa is bad, but in future it is possible in many countries.

Be careful and I hope better moments.

I feel for you guys. Spain and specially Italy have been hit very hard.
I believe Rocco is from Bergamo, which is the epicenter of the problem in Italy.
Stay safe.

Same here in Belgium,
Every non food store is closed.  And even then you need to be  careful!
Supermarkets are open, but only a few People at a time are allowed.
For now, everyone needs to stay home.  Only when you need to go to the supermarket or get some medicines.
But we are still allowed to go for a walk or go cycling. 
Im worried about my dad and his wife,  they are both sick  (don't know if it's corona virus ) they are home.
Need to take antibiotics,  and have a light fever.
My grandmother has weak lungs,  stomach and heart problems. So we keep a distance.

We are very careful, and try not to worry much.  That worrying is making people sick too.

Take care everyone,  wash your hands frequently and keep a distance!
Hopefully it wil be over soon .

The coronavirus tragedy unfolding all over the globe is cause for great sadness. But laughter is still the best medicine at home -- for stress reduction if nothing else...

Randy Rainbow (his real name) puts out some of the best political satire around in musical form. His online following is huge, and fans of his lyrics and performances include greats of musical theatre the likes of Stephen Sondheim and Andrew Lloyd Webber.

Be warned: Most of Rainbow's videos poke merciless fun at the current US administration. But he puts that aside here to promote civic duty.

I think I have the chorus for a song....

At my insistence
Keep your social distance
I have little resistance
I want to keep my existence
Thank you for your assistance

USA Today paper is reporting about a "coronavirus party" in Louisville, Kentucky.  I read it very carefully but I did not see Renee's name listed.  Hopefully, instead, she was at a top party with fewer than 100 people in attendance.

It is a grim reality that no country is going to be spared of this pandemic and it will be tough, very tough. Italy and Spain are already in the mist of the worst, France and USA will soon be there, Mexico in a couple of weeks (and worse as per Obrador's completely irresponsible statements). This community has people all over the word. I feel I have top friends everywhere, some who I know personally and others only online, and just writing to everyone feels overwhelming. Please, feel free to write on this thread how you and your family are doing, if you find that helpful.

Take care.

My wife and I are both at high risk for severe COVID-19 disease by virtue of age and other reasons, and our son's at some risk for getting the virus as a supermarket employee. We admire him for soldiering on but still worry. We also can't have him over anytime soon.

But so far, everyone's healthy. Complying with Colorado's statewide order to stay at home. And grateful that I already have enough LEGO in stock to keep building tops for several months.

Our local peak is probably still 2-3 weeks out, but my heart goes out to everyone in more dire straits.

Keep yourself and everyone around you as safe as possible and keep your spirits up as best you can. Laughter really is the best medicine.

Take care, Jeremy!
I also had to give up seeing my youngest son for the time being because he is living with his mother who had lung problems in the past and is at high risk.

This heading today started the best way possible  ;) :
