I have a cough and am not breathing well. Do I have it? Who knows. I’m feeling 90% healthy.

You too, Franklin.

I haven't heard of anyone in the community catching it. I don't know anyone personally either. We did have the first death within the last 24 hours in my county of residence. My Spring Break started on March 6th. I didn't go out of the house much as this was unfolding. I feel this was a good thing as I was having limited to no contact with other people before it started showing itself. I've basically been self-isolating since then.

I'm high-risk. Over 50 and have asthma. My blood type is A+. I don't know if it's fact, but there's an indication that people with type A blood may be more susceptible. My wife does all the grocery shopping now. I stayed in the car yesterday while she went in. My position is that if I do catch this I'm a goner; ventilator or not.

Symptoms are slow to develop, up to ten days for full presentation. Given that there's not testing, who knows?
This, the feds at the greatest level of failure. The response from Trump today was if your question isn't somewhat praising, it's just not nice and we won't consider it.

Doubles are very tasty street food. The whole country has to shut down before you can stop selling doubles. So the first action taken was a complete lockdown on doubles. Everyone is home now.
What is your most popular food?

No doubles?! That is serious.

I am from Rhode Island, and here we have a little hot dog that is called NY System wieners. They have nothing to do with New York and I am guessing it was a marketing ploy when they named them. You order 3 wieners “all the way” which means they add the dog into the bun, add a meat sauce that tastes like a salty non spicy chili, white onions, mustard and then a dash of celery salt. They will murder you if you put ketchup on them. Then to accompany them, you drink coffee milk. It’s like chocolate milk, but they add coffee syrup to it.

To me, this is Rhode Island’s most unique “street food”
