    Coronavirus - COVID-19

    Makes you wonder why it took them and many other governments so long to give this advice. Every time you breath out minute droplets of water vapour are expelled. One tiny cough can fill an average sized room. So whilst simple masks like these will not stop you from getting the virus they definitely will help to slow down the spread of the virus. Anyone can be a carrier for the virus even if they do not show any symptoms at all even those folk who have recovered from the illness. These simple neck tubes popular with motorcycle riders can be had for around a £1 on E-Bay. Easy to rinse out and quick to dry everyone in the country could have been issued with one by now. An lets face it they are quite attractive.

    Yup, I can see the pump house from my front door.

    Yes, that's why all of the Orleans Parish pumping stations are all the way inland along Broad ST. And, of course, right where you live is the now infamous 17th ST canal pumping station.

    I knew that most of this area, including New Orleans, was swampland.

    When they first opened Vets from the parish line to Causeway, it was considered a great boondoggle because there was nothing but swamp on either side. And from Causeway to David Dr. it was only a shell rd on the river side of the canal. With, of course, the exception of Lakeside Shopping Center.

    Yeah, things have changed a lot since I was a kid. At that time Carrolton ended in the swamp about one block toward the lake from Canal. People don't realize it today but the vast majority of Metairie was swamp at that time. Look at the map of Metairie RD and everything from about four block toward the lake side was swamp. And from a couple of block from Airline Hwy clear out to Kenner. Dig down a few feet anywhere in that area and you'll find old cars, refrigerator, washing machines etc. It was all filled with sand from the Spillway. All river silt from when they open it.

    Nice, I have only lived here for 5 years.

    I grew up in Old Metairie, not far from you, clear back in the 1950s. A little one block long street called Paladin Pl in about the 300 block of Metairie Rd. Metairie Manor has about 500 residents, so that is pretty much my neighborhood now.

    Nice, you are only 5 miles from me. I don't know about your neighborhood but its nice and quiet here in Old Metairie but only less than 6 miles from downtown.

    I am in Old Metairie (carrolton and canal). I go to winn dixi and walgreens without any issues.

    Unfortunately, we aren't allowed "out in public". But we have to wear a mask just take the elevator down to the lobby to get our mail, or pickup a grocery or restaurant delivery. No big deal. BTW, what part of New Orleans are you living now? I live in Metairie Manor which is just off Transcontinental near W. Napoleon.

    I agree with using Google Drive. I do that all the time with photos. Just upload and share your folder then your friend can download. Google has a free limit of 15GB.

    That was very nice thing for the manager to do. That alone would get my business from them. As far as gloves and masks, the CDC suggests that you wear a mask if you are out in the public around people: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/prevention.html And: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/cloth-face-cover.html

    Coronavirus - COVID-19

    The CDC seems to be changing its tune on face masks. I think they originally discouraged their use because there was a shortage and they wanted them reserved for healthcare workers. But now they are recomending them for people who go out in public. As to gloves, I don't see their purpose for regular people. (Non healthcare.) You spread the virus via your hands by what you touch. You leave it on surfaces that others touch. And this happens even if you are wearing gloves. You are told to wash your hands, not because you catch the virus through your skin but because you invariably touch your face with your hands where you catch the virus via your nose, mouth or eyes. And this will happen even if you are wearing gloves. Healthcare workers wear them because it is easier to change gloves than to wash your hands everytime you contact a patient. So, unless you are changing gloves very often, they aren't going to do much good. Of course, this doesn't apply if you yourself are infected. But in that case, you shouldn't be out in public anyway. On a different note, I was pleasantly surprised to get a phone call from the manager of the Bar and Grill where I sing Karaoke. Apparently, she was calling all her elderly regulars like myself, who are on lockdown, to make sure they are OK and to see if they needed anything. It would be great if we all had this kind of consideration during this time of crisis.

    Also, most webmail have attachment size limits as well. You can 100gb from google drive for $1.99 a month. That may be the cheapest and best method for you. https://one.google.com/about

    Send Anywhere or similar program ?

    Well I tried to upload a file by the Send a Link method, but it stalled at the 250mb mark and told me to upgrade to their paid account to get more space/bandwidth. So it looks like that part of the service is capped. There is a way to send via e-mail, to use that I have to give the recipients e-mail. Not tried that so not sure if it would work with a large file. You can send device to device but that just seems like a big black security hole to me. An finally you can send instantly but you only get ten minutes to download the file. That ten minutes starts from me creating the download code so by the time I have got the code to you there would only be seven or eight minutes left. In other words we both have to be sat at our pc's at the same time and pray that our internet is fast enough. I'm up for that if we can coordinate but am not sure if it will do a large file in time that is if it is not capped like the Send a Link method.

    We follow CDC guidelines which state that you just need to wear gloves when in public and use social distancing. Masks are only useful if you are infected so you do not infect others. They do not prevent you from getting it. Personally, I assume that most people are infected but not everyone will show symptoms. My mom had all of the same symptoms and the doctors tried all kinds of things like 4 antibiotics, 5 shots, etc. The doctor finally told her that he was stumped and that she should just rest and try to go to a specialist. She rested for a few weeks and got over it. That was back in late December/early January. I know someone else who had all the same symptoms back in December as well but got over the symptoms after resting for a couple of weeks. Even though a lot of people will die, most people who get sick are recovering.
