Day 492 in quarantine

Well, it feels like that. Even though it’s voluntary.

These are interesting times. With the coronavirus dominating the news and all the different reports coming out; who do you believe? Some people are only interested in themselves and use it for personal reasons. (need I say who?) Others are more interested in the world as a whole and focus there.

Someone sent me a great rant by a very frustrated doctor. It’s a bit long but worth watching. He says to take doses of zinc and quinine. If we can’t get quinine we should be drinking tonic water as it has a lot of quinine in it. I’ll agree and will take mine with Gin.

The point is, I found myself being skeptical, we are getting so much contradictory information it’s hard to know truth from fiction. I believe this guy though as he was totally non- partisan and obviously very knowledgable. Although he may have been working for Schweppes.

I’ve been looking for something to do so yesterday I made a bunch of perogies. If they turn out as good as the last lot I’ll be more than happy. I have to get some way of sizing them. They are all different sizes and the filling gets a bit awkward. I know, I’ll figure something out.

In the meantime off to the hammock.

Apparently, I’ve pissed a few people off with my rant about Trump. Sorry about that folks but I stand by my opinion. The decisions he makes will affect us all. I think he’s a very dangerous person and we need to speak out. Most of our friends who disagree with me have decided to not let our differences get in the way. We avoid the subject and turn to more important things. And anyway, if they drop the friendship because of this then they weren’t friends in the first place.

I also believe that we all need to open our minds and look at other possibilities and other sides of arguments especially when the evidence says we should. People tend to hold onto what’s good for them personally without looking at the bigger picture. And of course, we all tend to get entrenched in our own thinking, you know, once a Tory always a Tory or a Liberal or a Republican or a Democrat and all that nonsense. Never once do we think to change from our own particular dogma. Especially if it would do better for others but not for us.

I firmly believe in the following quote and I think your opinion is as valuable to you, as mine is to me.

“I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it”

Evelyn Beatrice Hall

    1. Thanks for your comments Margie. I wasn’t aware. However he is a doctor and a lot of what he said made sense. Tonic water was used by the British as a Maleria deterred the same as the drug hydroxychloroquine. So no harm will come if we try it.
