Disney is closed.  Might as well sit at home and watch Wallyworld and John Candy.

Well.....all I know is if I don’t get my wife on a vacation somewhere next week it won’t be the virus that kills me.

No reports up in North Dakota, they are open for business and vacation fun.

I hear that. Although without Sportscenter late at night or over morning coffee, we might have to * gasp * talk as a family. 😄

Great place.  Been sword and blue marlin fishing there.  But aside from any of that, just a great vacation.

My oldest just returned home last week from there.

Hope you get to go.

Western Boone has cancelled all athletic activity as well as closed school until after Spring Break (March 30). 

I am supposed to go on a cruise on Spring Break (Boat leaves the 22nd)... We are holding out and still going... Though with the closure of Disneys, I suspect the cruise may get cancelled as well.

And acquaintance of mine and her spouse cancelled their cruise scheduled for  the week 3/15.  They couldn't get a refund on their flight to Florida so now they are thinking of going to Key West for the week..................

If it's a Disney cruise, it's already been cancelled. Disney has suspended operations thru the end of the month. They have a boat leaving Port Canaveral today returning Monday, two boats returning tomorrow, and they have another boat currently at sea returning next week. No boats leaving after today until April 1.

I'm calling bullshit, I happen to know for a fact that Mrs. Lysander is a saint.

I’ve been to Costa Rica before, San Jose and Jaco.  This time I’ll be in the Guanacaste province.  I love to hike, so I go to places like Palo Verde and Rincon de la Vieja National Parks.  Great beer, too—Bohemia and Imperial: salud!

My hope (and I think all of us hope and pray) that CV-19 gets no where close to the severity of H1N1.....if it does and more, then I am afraid you are right.  What we may talk about for years to come is the manner we chose to respond.

At a minimum absolutely! If these cancellations and social distancing are effective in reducing the spread the diagnosis and mortality counts will be lower. We'll have no idea how much lower and we'll never know if they were absolutely necessary (I'm trusting the infectious disease people they are). But the canceling of everything and impact on the economy short and long term will definitely be historical.

No disagreement......

What will be interesting is to learn if how we responded this time, will become the standard protocol.  Because we didn't respond in this fashion back in 2010 or with other viral spreads.  Was it learning from that event and others that caused this response?  Did social media and media have a part to play?  Combination? Not sure.....

Maybe a nice long 20 hour ride in the car together going somewhere would bring out some of that infamous Ly magic.....

Perhaps some hunting in the Dakota's.......bass fishing in Oklahoma or west Texas.......
