    Everyone's body processes it differently. For some people just going outside often is enough for them. I did that for years and my vit D was still low, so the doc suggested taking supplements as well as natural sunlight. There are some people who need 10k daily to maintain healthy blood levels.

    Get yourself tested, but I would guess most people who do not take vitamins could probably benefit from 1-2k IU daily.

    I think we are starting to find that many many many people are walking around their whole lives well under a healthy blood level of Vit-D. Even people who are outside in the sun alot.
    Wow, there's a lot to unpack here.

    April 16th we took our 10-month old in for covid-19 symptoms. My wife and I had the same - symptoms were flu-like (respiratory cough, fever, head and body aches for about a week, persistent cough for 2 weeks after). I was probably the most mild of our bunch. We've been super cautious since first week of March, as Vail, up the road, was one of the earliest outbreaks in our country. I couldn't figure out how we would have encountered the virus.

    The other day, our roommate (lock-off basement) casually dropped that she tested positive for antibodies. She's young and healthy, similar to us, but in the nursing program, so doing clinical rounds in the local hospitals and clinics. Neither her or her bf had symptoms, but our furnace intake is in their living room, so it was likely raining down covids on us.

    For me, it sucked like a normal cold/flu, but full recovery. MTB rides on sunny trails helped (always, with everything).

    Waiting until way too late before shutting down NY and laws requiring nursing homes take covid patients (40-50% of deaths are in homes). Look up the Reichstag fire.

    Democrats were fanning the flames. Go to China Town, it’s safe! Let’s have Mardi Gras! Plenty of footage of Democrat leaders ensuring people all is ok in early March.
    If you’re talking about Pelosi that was in February an few days prior to the late Feb Congressional briefing.

    Your early March assertion for her saying “Go to Chinatown” would be inaccurate.

    Look it up.

    Everyone has the right to choose what to do with their body. But if I choose not to get dressed this morning, I don't have the right to go for a stroll around my neighborhood.

    But I was pointing out the irony of the religious right in this state whingeing about their rights, while attempting to politically, and legally, curtail the rights of others.

    Remove the religious part, and that still holds true vis a vis private property, and public safety. As counsellor KQ mentioned upthread, if 'no shirt, no shoes, no service' is reasonable and legal in this country, then so is 'no mask, no entry'. There is no right to enter Home Depot.

    I would love nothing more than for this - and I mean all of this, not just masks - to not be political in any way. The notion that someone needs to be convinced to display even a modicum of human decency during a pandemic really speaks to how fucked up things have gotten.

    Three different things.

    The March footage refers to NY officials.

    In other news W2 just moved into Phase 2. In a way I'm kinda excited even though I know nothing has changed with respect to the virus circulating still if feels like progress.

    Benton-Franklin peeps are going to descend on us and probably bump us back up and I'm sure this will send Yakima into a tailspin. They are already off the charts crazy about this lock down.


    Saw this today - interesting demographics on cases in Washington state. A lot of what is going on here seems counter to other things I've read re: men getting more than women and age ranges:

    You’re not wrong. There are usually cicadas of some sort every summer, some of the larger Broods though, only come out every 13 or 17 years. And some of those broods like Brood ix this year, are a few year early.

    Damn. Hope everyone recovers 100%. Amazing how something like the furnace can be possibly the culprit. Large apartment buildings are even more terrifying in that regard and shows that there should be some serious building code changes and enforcement.

    Yeah, I’ve pointed out multiple times how idiotic this guy is. One particular press conference he basically refuted everything the CDC was saying at the time in the first 3 minutes of a press conference...was jaw dropping. Media said nothing at the time. It was the March 8th one.

    Maybe more women because more healthcare workers have been tested overall and more women work in healthcare. Any demographic stats needed to be taken with a grain of salt due to no random testing. That's my hot take, anyway.

    City Council here is talking about closing side streets for dining alfresco (and Main street once a week). Fortunately we have the weather for it. I'm actually thinking about patronizing my favorite breakfast place Bacon & Eggs. Craving Eggs Benny or maybe some Shrimp & Grits. Tired of cooking for myself and of course want to help out my friend who owns the place.

    Yum!

    Those are poached eggs. Maybe the picture doesn't do it justice but I can attest they are lovely and just the right serving for breakfast, at least for me.

    Shrimp & Grits
    ‘Old School Mill’ stone ground white corn grits cooked with smoked mozzarella and sharp white cheddar served with shrimp and two eggs as you wish.



    Here's the whole menu - so many great items!

    Heal up. The virus can be quite nasty. CEO for one of my companies came down with C19 last week, Blood oxygen dropped by 8% in 24 hours. 1 more point and he was off to the ER. 48 hours later he's weak but back on top. Start to deathly ill to riding bikes in a long week.

    FKN crazy.

    Tips up - hope everyone, including your 11 month old, has had full recovery.

    Ignore the sadtroll “it’s less than the flu!” loser who is only here for attention. He’s been put on ignore by so many in polyass, from all sides of the political spectrum, that he’s migrated here. Notice he’s not posting in any other padded room threads.

    To be clear dissenting opinions are helpful in a discussion. Trolling is not.

    March 6 - Fox News’ doctor Marc Siegel said the WHO are alarmist saber rattlers and this is no more deadly than the flu and covid mortality will decrease and this is just political posturing by the CDC cause they don’t like Trump.

    If we want to talk about poor messaging in early March let’s look at what was being said nationally. And beamed into the Oval Office bathroom.

    KQ - those eggs benny! I could use a breakfast food stoke thread.
