  1. Gee, do you have any Martin's potato bread? The company is based in PA. Only bread that doesn't make me violently ill. Grocery shelves are empty. Contact company. Can't buy it online because I live in their distribution area…. ya 3 states over. Told me they are going to increase production. And you all think bread person automatically gives you twice the shelf space?

  2. Good news from Worldometer keeping ongoing track of Coronavirus cases and the number who die. These facts are what we have to go by, and not speculation of what some think will or must happen:

    These are not facts.

    Just 3 hours ago, the mortality rate, according to Worldometer, is 1.3%

    It was 4.06% on the 8th.

    4.06% March 8 (22 deaths of 541 cases).

    3.69% March 9 (26 of 704).

    3.01% March 10 (30 of 994).

    2.95% March 11 (38 of 1,295).

    2.52% March 12 (42 of 1,695).

    2.27% March 13 (49 of 2,247).

    1.93% March 14 (57 of 2,954).

    1.84% March 15 (68 of 3,680).

    1.6% March 17 (116 of 7,301).

    1.4% March 19 (161 of 11,329).

    1.25% March 20 (237 of 18,845).

    Since March 20th, it has been hovering daily at 1.29% to 1.3% and 3 hours ago was 1.3%.

  3. Just remember to clean the food products before using. The virus can live days on a surface. I heard clorox is the only thing that kills it
