I doubt if coronavirus is about a bat, nor the wet markets in China.
A State Department official was on the news last night. He echoed what Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said a few weeks ago.
China was making a supervirus in Wuhan. Whether or not they intended this to be a chemical weapon is unclear. They wanted to show the world that they have the know how to eradicate viruses such as these.
The problem is, the virus got away. They immediately closed the borders to Wuhan. What they didn't do was halt international flights.
C9: ďas our restaurant is closed due to the lockdown,Ē
C9: ďwe also do a takeaway service and local free deliveryĒ
Which is it C9??
Oh,, your burgers are beef?? I happen to raise beef,, Holstein, Angus, Hereford. I know how it looks, fresh or frozen. I have my own Butcher Boy 3hp meat grinder. What you served wasnít fresh,,, and I donít think it was beef! The closest that Iíve seen is about 30 years ago when McDonalds served horse?? Sort of gray, burnt top and bottom. Then there was my dateís chicken sandwich, dried out, she didnít even eat it.
Of course I think you were having a bad day or month,,, as least that is what the gossip was all about.
You were having a surfer problem,,,, something about getting his board waxed,,,, maybe more?
It was entertaining to be sure, a lot of yelling in the kitchen, my date went to the bathroom and one of your waitresses started to grind on my leg,,, Iím glad she was female. Are they instructed to do that??
C9: ďI know you are fully aware of itís existance, all information can be found there,Ē
No!! Not really! Why would you say that??
I blocked you years ago after your attempt to find info on Martin! You are a horseís ass! Period!
Weíve been told that the lockdown will be extended after April 30, our friends the local officials and our mayor visited us today and gave us our travelling passes which allows us to leave our place during the day for whatever reason that may be, that will only be used for the food deliveries we do from here to our friends in the area who phone us with an order from our menu, this is a special service we do for them, our restaurant like many others is closed to the public for now, but friends can call us and make an order, and we can deliver it, or they can come here and collect a takeaway meal,, this works well, and can be ordered anytime during the day between 10 am and 6pm, curfew starts here at 8pm,
Weíve gotten quite used to the lockdown now and in fact we are enjoying it, we all keep busy here, my wife Cecilia and our staff have been tending our gardens , growing vegetables etc and making face masks , the face masks are given free of charge to anyone locally who wants one, our staff take them to the village when they finish duty, this works well too,
I have redesigned our bar and restaurant and we have our local team of builders working on it now, we need to extend our restaurant because we were so busy here before this virus outbreak we couldnít seat and serve everyone sometimes and unfortunately had to politely turn them away as our place was full, but we would recommend our friends places close by,
weíve been meaning to extend our restaurant etc for a long time now, but couldnít do it due to our many bookings and daily walk in customers, so the lockdown has its advantages 😀 we can do all of our odd jobs 😎
I think LRBS is angry. He needs to go back to that padded room. It isn't because of anything done to him. It's what was done to his master. Many people take half a lifetime, even more to find their passion. LRBS found his: being Martin's bitch.
My ex-wife, the mother of my daughter, contracted coronavirus as I stated above. She worked at a nursing home where four patients have died. She is now fully recovered and is going back to work. Although she has the antibodies, a few have contracted the disease, twice. She needs a shout out.
It is still unclear whether or not China made this virus on purpose. One thing they did do was lock the borders of Wuhan where the virus originated. Then, kept it quiet. They didnít halt international flights. In the next few weeks, five million Chinese went all over the world. In the mean time, China bought all the masks, gowns and all the protective equipment they can find. When the news came out, China was protected. They are now selling these protective equipment at a premium price.
At least, we are now supplied, other than test kits. We are ready to open businesses in a limited capacity at the end of the month.
I agree with you raging bull, LRBS is slightly upset lol,, he enjoyed some rest and relaxation at martins amazing residence in the distant past, perhaps they became lovers then whilst dining in martins magnificent and popular eating establishment lol,,
He has defended him ever since, I wonder if he visited him in the slammer when he was staying there as a guest of the local police force, if I remember correctly,, stuís visit was around the same time ,
Raging bull, Iím so happy to hear your ex wife has fully recovered from this terrible virus and has returned to full health, it shows this virus can be beaten,
sometime in the near future a vaccine will be found and the corona virus will be eradicated, there are so many stories as to its manufacture and who actually developed it, but you are right the epidemic started in China and from there it spread globally,
Lockdown will continue for several weeks or even months I believe, but itís something that must be done to beat it,
Local relief goods arrived in our area again today by lorry, and was distributed within the local villages, our mayor visited us again today and told us that there is still no confirmed corona virus cases on Siargao Island which is great news,
I agree with you poppy, who cares what rat looks like,
I know,,letís ask the forums most popular and most influential member,, the man who has an answer for everything from running a hugely successful business , and how to have a happy and lasting marriage, how to make friends and keep them, how to run an airline, and last but not least, how to survive when you are poor, he needs no introduction, we all know his name, heís a wonderfully admired pillar of local society and LRBS loves him ,,lol,,
i cant imagine what its like to live surrounded by people who dislike you ... very sad to end up in old age stuck in a run down vacant building . just you yourself and some stinking dog for company . that's the kind of life horrible people end up with . this virus will go for years tourism is finished for a long time ... Martin you could try fishing and hunting for your food
Poppy, I too cannot imagine what itís like to be despised by the local community you live in, but mc does, heís in self isolation everyday anyway due to the lockdown on Siargao Island, but in truth heís been ignored and an outcast for years now, heís been beaten up, imprisoned, banned from countless bars and restaurants, arrested and reported to the immigration for deportation, what else could go wrong for this poor unfortunate person,
after he hit a Korean woman with ď stickĒ he didnít venture from his room for several weeks in fear of reprisals, but I hope he is receiving some relief packages being handed out locally and he isnít going hungry, I hope also he hasnít caught cabin fever and starts drinking too much, that would be so sad to see him fall into the depths of loneliness and alcoholism and living in squalor wouldnít it,
Howís everyone doing with the lockdown , are you allowed out of your house for trips to the shops, and what do you do for entertainment, lockdown affects different people in different ways, it depends on your location and where you live, Iíve got a friend in the UK who lives on his own in a small flat, heís under lockdown like the rest of us, and tells me he finds it difficult sometimes, the boredom is the main thing as is very athletic and used to play a lot of sports, heís put on weight and watches tv and plays video games he tells me , but hasnít got cabin fever yet lol,, we chat via video link ,
Our mayor tells us a total lockdown for 14 days may be imposed on Siargao Island, this means that you must stay in your house all the time, trips outside will not be allowed, and people will be told to stock up, and a curfew will be imposed , curfew violators will be arrested,,, this sounds very harsh, letís hope this doesnít happen,
How are you LRBS and how are you coping with the isolation in America , have you been watching reruns of Star Trek , or has Martin send you some of his thunderbirds dvds via the internet, do you play video games with someone at home or do spend a lot of time on your own playing with yourself,
Raging bull, Iíve seen on the news certain states in America are considering a return to work policy and easing the lockdown, do you think that is a good idea, or do you think it is too early to do that, 12 million people now have signed up for unemployment benefits in the USA, thatís staggering,,
Poppy, howís things with you, all good I hope,
Iíve seen on the cnn news here today there are some more confirmed cases of the virus in Cebu city, and unfortunately more deaths also, confirmed cases have also been reported in some prisons in the major cities, this is terrible as the prisons in the Philippines are overcrowded and social distancing will be impossible, prisoners are all gathered together in huge dormitory style buildings and cells are more of a luxury, I canít imagine the terrible conditions these people must be in,
How did you find conditions in the prison you were in MC , did you have a cell or a dorm, perhaps you could give us some details on what it was like, it must of been terrible for you, did you get botty ache and was the food ok there, prison in the Philippines very few foreigners get to experience it must of been quite an adventure,
A vaccine is being developed and is ready for testing in the UK, letís hope all goes well with that and the solution to this pandemic can be found solved
Word from my daughter is my ex-wife is back at work after recovering from coronavirus. She works at a nursing home. The word before she went back to work was 4 have died from that facility. The news now is, it's up to 25 deaths. It is much harder to get the disease twice, but not impossible. Also, she might take the virus home to her family.
In California, we are now required to wear masks in public. I will not comply in the neighborhood, especially when I am at my morning jog.
Phase I for opening businesses is due on May 1. California is not included. I don't agree, but I'm not in charge.
