just cut us back to 4 days...20% pay reduction.
Exactly what happened to me this week. We sell children's books through schools, which becomes difficult when all schools nationwide are closed indefinitely.
Now we are called essential, got keep those copiers running at hospitals and senior centers etc...., but still on 4 days..... :smt021

I'm a Licenced Psychotherapist. Office closed down Saturday so I set up impromptu shop at a local Disc Golf Course and am seeing people that don't want to do video sessions in the Gazebo that has a comfortable picnic table. Depression and marital problems by moonlight.
That's a good idea. A lot of the students I work with are challenged by depression and other mental diseases. I worry about them. When my lay off starts on Friday, I plan on e-mailing out some final words of encouragement but that is about all I can do.
Focus: Cones and flats from Michigan, South Bend, and Fort Wayne. Foreign cans only if I bought them myself in the country of origin.

2020 Shows Attended

* Michigan Chapter Winterfest, January 18, Frankenmuth Michigan
* Beer Can's 85th Birthday, January 24, Online show
* Cabin Fever Reliever, February 28/29, South Bend Indiana

I'm not exactly the most formal person in my profession, as you could probably guess from being a member here. We ain't exactly a bunch of suit wearing, starched shirt, tie collectors. I'd be happy doing all my sessions in an outdoor setting.

Working for a company that relies heavily on students and athletics,things are going dry quickly. But today, amongst the state shutdown (shelter at home) we were deemed essential. Many students are looking forward to their rings,diplomas and grad products. And to not attend the Final 4 to meet coaches and design basketball rings will result in a ton of lost business. I can work from home, but a 6 yr. old boy is a lot more demanding than any customer. Our machine shop is still humming, and those folks are relieved they won't be sent home.

Even with Washington State having a "Stay At Home" order I work in Aerospace and we have Military Contracts so our company is listed as "Essential" so off to work I go.....

I'M NOT SAYING I'M A BIG DEAL BUT --- THE GOVERMENT CLASSIFIES ME AS ESSENTIAL :) :)

In 2008, during the Great Recession, we almost went under. This is the complete opposite. We are a fitness equipment retailer. Since the gyms, health clubs and recreation centers closed sales have been insane. We did our entire March sales budget in one week! Dallas County and the surrounding most populated counties in the DFW Metroplex all have various levels of shelter in place. We are permitted to be open based on exemptions for fulfillment services and the health aspect of our products (e.g. we had a customer tell us that they needed a recumbent bike because of rehab from surgery and outpatient PT was canceled). Biggest uncertainty is sales slowing down as quick as they picked up, the possibility that Dallas, Collin, Denton and Tarrant county could force us to close our stores and office/warehouse and whether our vendors can meet demand. We’re already seeing back orders into May. It’s like I fell asleep and am having a nightmare of a science fiction movie and can’t wake up!

I'm an RN. I could work 24/7 right now. I don't. My wife is rightfully concerned that I will bring Covid 19 home to the family (notice I did not say that she is worried about me getting sick 😂). I would willingly work more. So we have settled on one extra shift a week. I work 12 hour shifts so 36 hours weekly has become 48.
Hats off to you my friend. I admire those who sacrifice to help others especially when this is so contagious and you could bring home to the other members of your family. I saw on the news that 500+ NY City Police have tested pos and many others calling in. Scary times.
Interested in all flat and Cone Soda and Water cans.

Things haven't changed all that much for us, I retired a few years back and several years before that I had pulled this car
from a shed and put it in my garage for a retirement project.

I got the garage heated and insulated last year so I've been out tinkering whenever time permits. Currently I'm removing
the four layers of repaints. The interesting thing is the original color is called Uhlan Gray (pronounced OOO Lawn) which
to me looks very Olive Drabish?

Shelley keeps kidding me that I've taken on one of the largest rub out projects.

STAY SAFE!
