  1. And they wonder why people are buying so many guns...
  2. In case anyone needs a nose to boop...
  3. I saw this the other day, and thought it fits this discussion.
  4. @bilgistic, looks like we're not going anywhere soon...Mecklenburg County, where Charlotte is located and where I live, was already under such an order for the past week. Several other counties in the state had issued similar orders in the past few days as well. This now covers the entire state and runs through April 29. Gov. Cooper issues statewide stay-at-home order as NC coronavirus cases maintain high rate of increase
  5. Working from home the past couple of weeks, I've been running my The West Wing DVDs in the background while I'm working. Today I heard a familiar voice, and looked up to see Kenneth "Chimney" Choi. He had a bit part in the Season 1 episode "Six Meetings Before Lunch" listed as "Secret Service Agent #1". The episode was from 2000, twenty years ago, and according to IMDB, it was his third TV appearance.
  6. They closed Great Smoky Mountain National Park and the section of the Blue Ridge Parkway near the park because so many people came out last weekend. The place was mobbed, and people weren't staying away from one another.
  7. My old company - who paid me to leave two years ago - is a large financial services company, Fortune 100 firm specializing in retirement and other investments, that you probably never heard of unless you did business with them. They used to be a leader in remote work, with many employees who were hired to work remotely full time. I used to WFH at least one day a week, and it was a normal thing. About a year ago, they announced that just about everyone was going to be required to return to working in an office - they are headquartered in NYC, have a large campus in Charlotte, significant presence in Denver and Chicago, and smaller offices nationwide. The claimed it would "increase collaboration" but most thought it was a veiled way to quietly continue layoffs. It disrupted lots of lives, and caused ill-will among the staff. Today I received an e-mail from the CEO - I still have 401K and pension investments there, so I'm still a customer - with an update on the firm's response to COVID-19. Among other things, they have asked the vast majority of employees to work remotely...
  8. A year ago today, this big lovable mush came into our lives and stole our hearts. He really needed a new home, and just a month after losing Denali, we needed him too. Happy Gotcha Day, Jake!
