    The neighbor they first arrived at called the second neighbor and told them not to open the door....they watched him throw it on the porch and thought about going to confront him but thought better of it...this man does not seem sound at all. CJ and I play soccer in the street often and sometimes the ball lands on his yard....my wife said watch he will come out and curse you out...and my response was that could be his worst mistake yet, lol.

I was in the local supermarket tonight at 5:30ish...... an there was NO fresh chicken..... No ham...'cept packaged ham steaks minimal pork and beef..... however I did snag a choice bone in ribeye steak for 5.99 a pound! Was really only in for fresh fruit for DW.... and no problem there!

    That’s what I was afraid of. The media starts talking about food shortages and people go crazy.

    Since 1980, and throughout the many changes, we still love going downtown in Oranjestad.

    Good morning,

    In Canada, re-opening varies by province, as it varies by state in the US. Yesterday, our province set out its plan for re-opening. It will be slow and cautious.

    Starting this Monday, May 4th, many but not all, non-essential services can re-open provided certain physical distancing rules are followed. The rationale as to why some businesses can open and others remain closed is unclear. Hair salons can re-open but estheticians must remain closed for another couple of weeks. Both are kind of non-essential 'up close and personal' services, so why the difference? Who knows.

    Large public gatherings, like concerts and large-scale sporting events (ie pro football) are, as our premier suggested, at the back of the line, when it comes to re-opening.

    Be assured; any major uptick in COVID-19 cases here and it will closed up tight once again.

    some beaches in FL are open for exercise
    she beaches are open to include swimming and sitting out on the sand.

    our community had a POA board meeting yesterday and they voted to not slowly open any of our amenities yet.
    (of course golf continues to remain open as it brings in $$ )
    we are trying so hard to remain positive, but we are thinking that it is about time to slowly reopen things,

    even tiny baby steps of reopening things would be good.



    ​In a world where you can be anything, be kind!

    In Virginia our stay at home order continues to June 10th. Our HOA decided not to open anything until that order expires. I wonder if we will see a reduction in fees next year since we cant use any amenities? Somehow I doubt it. Our county supervisors voted to increase property taxes yesterday and they are getting crucified for it, as they should be, with so many out of work. Non essential businesses are not able to reopen until at least May 8th.
    The number of cases continues to climb, it just seems like no end in sight.
    Yesterday I had a rough day, feeling isolated and not being productive. Going for walks helps, but today it's raining. The virtual vacation thread has been helping.

    Also in Virginia, our illustrious governor is thinking about keeping beaches closed till July. Like Aruba we depend on tourism dollars here, not exclusively, but over 1 billion dollars in revenue every year. There are also over 48,000 workers affected by these closures. Before our city collapses I hope we start to reopen soon.
