  2. The Difference Between the North and the South - at Last, Clearly Explained .... The North has Bloomingdale's, the South has Dollar General. The North has coffee houses, the South has Waffle Houses. The North has dating services, the South has family reunions. The North has switchblade knives; the South has .45's The North has double last names; the South has double first names. The North has Indy car races; The South has stock car races. North has Cream of Wheat, the South has grits. The North has green salads, the South has collard greens. The North has lobsters, the South has crawfish. The North has the rust belt; the South has the Bible Belt. FOR NORTHERNERS MOVING SOUTH. . .... In the South: - If you run your car into a ditch, don't panic. Four men in a four-wheel drive pickup truck with a tow chain will be along shortly .. Don't try to help them, just stay out of their way. This is what they live for. Don't be surprised to find movie rentals and bait in the same store ... Do not buy food at this store. Remember, 'Y'all' is singular, 'all y'all' is plural, and 'all y'all's' is plural possessive. Get used to hearing 'You ain't from round here, are ya?' Save all manner of bacon grease. You will be instructed later on how to use it. Don't be worried at not understanding what people are saying. They can't understand you either. The first Southern statement to creep into a transplanted Northerner's vocabulary is the adjective 'big'ol,' truck or 'big'ol' boy. Most Northerners begin their Southern-influenced dialect this way. All of them are in denial about it. The proper pronunciation you learned in school is no longer proper. Be advised that 'He needed killin ..' is a valid defense here. If you hear a Southerner exclaim, 'Hey, y'all watch this,' you should stay out of the way. These are likely to be the last words he'll ever say. If there is the prediction of the slightest chance of even the smallest accumulation of snow, your presence is required at the local grocery store. It doesn't matter whether you need anything or not. You just have to go there. Do not be surprised to find that 10-year olds own their own shotguns, they are proficient marksmen, and their mammas taught them how to aim. In the South, we have found that the best way to grow a lush green lawn is to pour gravel on it and call it a driveway. AND REMEMBER: If you do settle in the South and bear children, don't think anyone will accept them as Southerners. After all, if the cat had kittens in the oven, we ain't gonna call 'on biscuits.
  3. Got the word today that Monday we start a lock down. Now their saying for two weeks but I don't believe it will be that short. To many people here still not taking it serious, saw several today without their mask on. A few minutes ago I sent a message to a police friend if there's going to any kind of enforcement with the lock down. Not heard any thing back yet.
  4. The state I'm in has gotten pretty strict on laws the Governor has laid down. Health police are every where checking the food industry. Just last week the Fed. police and the Civilian police have started stopping cars if the occupants don't have their mask on and issuing fines. The same goes for anybody walking on the streets without their mask on. I eat lunch every day at the same restaurant and I get there before anyone else, eat and leave but today I bought the food home and ate here. I don't leave town there's a chance I might not be let back in. I do carry a electric bill with my name and address on it to prove I live here.
  5. TOP TEN INDICATORS THAT YOUR EMPLOYER HAS CHANGED TO AN OBAMACARE PLAN: (10) Your annual breast exam is done at Hooters. (9) Directions to your doctor's office include "Take a left when you enter the trailer park." (8) The tongue depressors taste faintly of Fudgesicles. (7) The only proctologist in the plan is "Gus" from Roto-Rooter. (6) The only item listed under Preventative Care Coverage is "an apple a day." (5) Your primary care physician is wearing the pants you gave to Goodwill last month. (4) "The patient is responsible for 200% of out-of-network charges," is not a typographical error. (3) The only expense covered 100% is…. "Embalming." (2) Your Prozac comes in different colors with little M's on them. AND THE NUMBER ONE SIGN YOU'VE JOINED THE OBAMACARE PLAN: (1) You ask for Viagra, and they give you a Popsicle stick and duct tape
  6. New rules I think started a couple of days ago. Any police agency in this state of Goias can give a fine to anyone seen driving a vehicle without a face mask on. A friend told me today that yesterday he was stopped by a road block but he and his passenger both had their mask on. They also gave him a complete vehicle inspection on the spot, his documents and the cars documents and all signal lights. He passed all!
  7. Here's the latest going on down here, just official today. Health Alert - US Embassy Brasilia, Brazil (May 14, 2020) Location : Brazil Event: COVID-19 Related Movement Restrictions in Brazil The US Mission in Brazil informs US citizens that several state and local governments across Brazil have issued decrees that restrict the movement of people in an effort to combat the spread of COVID-19. US citizens should adhere to local laws and regulations at all times, including COVID-19 related restriction orders. While under these restrictions, jurisdictions may establish checkpoints and law enforcement authorities may require that traveling individuals provide identification documents and a justification for travel. Some local governments have implemented vehicle restrictions, allowing travel for certain vehicles only on designated days of the week. Some jurisdictions have implemented the mandatory use of facial masks and citizens in public without a mask may be instructed to return home. In addition, authorities may impose fines on individuals not adhering to any of the movement restrictions. In all locations, essential services such as supermarkets, pharmacies, and hospitals remain open for business. All persons in Brazil, regardless of nationality, are subject to these restrictions as well as all local laws. If you are detained or arrested, the US government can neither secure your release nor act as your legal representative. Actions to take: For specific information about any movement restriction in your area, please monitor national and local news. Many local and state government official social media accounts also provide information.

  8. On Golf Stevie Wonder and Tiger Woods are in a bar. Tiger turns to Stevie and says, 'How's the singing career going?' Stevie replies, 'Not too bad. How's the golf? ' Woods replies, 'Not too bad, I've had some problems with my swing, but I think I've got that right, now.' Stevie says, 'I always find that when my swing goes wrong, I need to stop playing for a while and not think about it. Then, the next time I play, it seems to be all right. ' Tiger says, 'You play GOLF?' Stevie says, 'Yes, I've been playing for years'. Tiger says, 'But - you're blind! How can you play golf if you can't see? ' Stevie Wonder replies, 'Well, I get my caddy to stand in the middle of the fairway and call to me. I listen for the sound of his voice and play the ball towards him. Then, when I get to where the ball lands, the caddy moves to the green or farther down the fairway and again I play the ball towards his voice. ' 'But, how do you putt?' asks Tiger 'Well', says Stevie, 'I get my caddy to lean down in front of the hole and call to me with his head on the ground and I just play the ball towards his voice.' Tiger asks, 'What's your handicap?' Stevie says, 'Well, actually - I'm a scratch golfer.' Woods, incredulous, says to Stevie, 'We've got to play a round sometime.' Stevie replies, 'Well, people don't take me seriously, so I only play for money, and never play for less than $ 10,000 a hole. That a problem? ' Woods thinks about it and says, 'I can afford that, OK, I'm game for that. $ 10,000 a hole is fine with me. When would you like to play? ' Stevie Wonder says, 'Pick a night.'
  9. UPDATE IN URUACU: restaurants are open but with absurd rules to follow. The really small cafes have their tables outside on the sidewalk and six feet apart, same in the large restaurants but they have yellow ribbon as lane markers for customers on one side of the food and the waitresses on the other side of the food and they have to get a plate for you then you point to the food you want them to put on the plate for you, then they hand the full plate to you at the end of the food line and you take your plate of food to the scales for the weigh-in since your buying food by the kilo. Then go to a table and sit down then you are allowed to remove your mask to eat. If no mask you don't enter the restaurant! 15:00 yesterday I went to my bank and just as I got to the door so did eight black shirt police to start writing tickets for not wearing a mask, I had mine on but two dudes in front of me didn't and they got a ticket. Also day before yesterday I heard this town had it's first covid 19 death. Info I got he was 49 years old. Guess I'll check my detector battery to see if it needs charging in case I get to use it again this year!
  10. Now entering week three of lock down, starting today mask are mandatory or face fines. Some restaurants are going to open tomorrow anyway but they have strict guidelines from the Gov. Don't know if anyone is beeping or not. I'm staying close to the house.
  11. Mash and the Coronavirus Little did we know back then that the same crisis could hit the homeland! Big nod to the person that found all that footage! https://youtu.be/5WuaDK0mTc4
  12. Stay-at-home sure is boring so had to renew my memory what gold looks like. Feel better now, 212.1 grams better.
  13. A PET'S TEN COMMANDMENTS........ 1. My life is likely to last 10-15 years. Any separation from you is likely to be painful. 2. Give me time to understand what you want of me 3. Place your trust in me. It is crucial for my well-being. 4. Don't be angry with me for long and don't lock me up as punishment. You have your work, your friends, your entertainment, but I have only you. 5. Talk to me. Even if I don't understand your words, I do understand your voice when speaking to me. 6. Be aware that however you treat me, I will never forget it. 7. Before you hit me, before you strike me, remember that I could hurt you, and yet, I choose not to bite you. 8. Before you scold me for being lazy or uncooperative, ask yourself if something might be bothering me. Perhaps I'm not getting the right food, I have been in the sun too long, or my heart might be getting old or weak. 9. Please take care of me when I grow old You too, will grow old. 10. On the ultimate difficult journey, go with me please. Never say you can't bear to watch. Don't make me face this alone. Everything is easier for me if you are there, because I love you so ~Take a moment today to thank God for your pets. Enjoy and take good care of them. Life would be a much duller, less joyful experience without God's critters. Now please pass this on to other pet owners. We do not have to wait for Heaven, to be surrounded by hope, love, and joyfulness. It is here on earth and has four legs!
  14. Mike and RD we're like you in many ways. The Gov. here 10 days ago closed all except grocery stores and drug stores. We have two large restaurants that are delivery only or take out. I've been having lunch every day at one for five years so they take my order instead of a food display and bring my plate and food to me at a table not visible to the public. Less than 50% of the people on the street are wearing a mask. The local health dept. says they expect 400-500 deaths here. Many of the people are staying home since there's no where to go except to buy food. I expect any day to have a total lock down so I'm not leaving town for anything, concerned one of the cop stops won't let me back in town. Lunch time now, at least there's no line to stand in! Have my hand alcohol bott;e filled.
  15. Hijacked no JG, we're all here for the same purposes. Hunker in place is the way to go especially here too. Stay cool in Cali.
