It's partly the boredom factor; there are a lot of people with more time on their hands than they've had in years. Baking takes time and it's cheaper to make your own bread than to buy it. I do a bit of baking and a lot of cooking anyhow, so I'm not daunted by pulling out the mixing bowls and loaf pans. I may even pull out the bread maker to put it through its paces for fun.the cartoonishly large jump in bread makers is a bit of a head scratcher.
My dad used to say something similar when my mum was baking cakes. "Stick a knife in it," he'd say, "and if it comes out clean, stick all the others in too." This was before we got a dishwasher.A toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf will come out clean when the bread is done.
Because the supplies can't magically appear. The whole world needs the same supplies and many of those supplies aren't manufactured here. Now that some are they still have to get FDA approved.Actually, in the Vietnam app, you do not see the name of the person who is infected.
You just see an approximate location of where the person is, and you can stay clear of that area. Vietnam has remarkably few deaths, and even in urban areas as densely populated as NYC, there is little widespread infection.
NYC (and the USA) is a huge, mismanaged mess. With all the technology, medical sophistication, money and brainpower here, we are floundering around and not taking essential action. Heads should roll and criminal cases should be pursued against the incompetent morons in charge of this emergency response.
How can they NOT do any airport screening? Why are there no tests? Why do the hospitals have no protective gear? The list goes on. Insanity and stupidity.
I had to laugh at the first post in the 'Comments' section; the poster thinks $500K liability insurance is a lot! I carry $2M and that's standard where I live.This brainiac totaled his $750,000 car thinking the empty streets were too tempting.
I drive a Prius. The empty streets are only improving my gas mileage with less stop and go driving!This brainiac totaled his $750,000 car thinking the empty streets were too tempting.
Does your Daughter's work have guidelines that may include having High-Risk individuals living under the same roof?
Where I am at: that would be a valid reason for not being called into work.
M. too funny. Yesterday when the family was Skyping, I did not join in and announced "That is so 60s". I prefer to be the disembodied voice.
Kaboom![Thinks, maybe as we work our way through the hoard of toilet paper, there'd be space to keep some big bottles of petrol under the stairs. You know, where we keep the candles and matches in case there's a power cut. Be a shame to miss out on the good price at the moment]
My work- you must want to come in and then get an approved exemption to come into work. Having a high-risk individual in the same household, or being 65+ years old yourself- the exemption will be denied. That solves the "peer-pressure" problem. This is a life-and-death situation. As a supervisor, knowing that a high-risk individual is in the same household- I would tell the person to stay home.It's very difficult to be seen not to shoulder some of the burden when other's are doing just that.
