More on Cargill, and it's hitting High River pretty hard. I wonder how long until they close the plant down?

So, we live through it, we protect ourselves as best we can, and in a year or so, we'll have a vaccine, and Covid will join polio, smallpox, yellow fever, and bubonic plague as destroyers that are now mere footnotes.

Knowledge and technology will save us. Courage and good sense will protect us until then.

Despair not, dear lady. This too shall pass.

One of the most positive when every time you turn on the radio or TV it's just more negative, death count and "We're all going to die" BS.

This COVID-19 really made us all think how important family is, and time I hope.

Sure did Boomer. I too hope that people now see how important time is. It's something that should never be taken for granted. It didn't take this virus for me and my husband to learn the importance of time though, he was diagnosed with cancer almost 2 years ago (he beat the odds and came through it well, knock on wood) but yeah, when you think you have so little of it left, you sure learn to appreciate it. Everything else is just noise...

So make money while you can because the government is not keen on giving back any they stole.

I'll bet it did, cancer of the throat? My husband had colon cancer and he too has a pretty nasty scar. Cancer sure is a messed up thing to deal with. Can't say enough about the folks as SHC and Tom Baker.

Also a house of horrors possibly rendering antibiotics redundant.

If you are ever bored read this book by a GWB former speech writer.

I don't eat pork and hardly eat cow, and I may stop eating it entirely after the COVID blows over.

The idiot executives of Cargill should be arrested and jailed. Those morons were telling people who tested positive, to return to work if they showed no symptoms, even when the workers had tested positive.

You shouldn't have to wait too long for a chemical/toxic alternative called Beyond Fish.... Caught fresh daily from your local lab and chemical supply warehouse
