Got a MasterFlow Tsunami MF-1050 12 Volt Portable Hi Volume Air Compressor for my truck.

Ordered 2 of the Sawyer SP191 Point Zero Two Bucket Purifier Assembly Kit with Faucet Adapter.

Purchased additional 32 oz. bottles of both PRI-G and PRI-D.

Purchased a Honeywell HA202BHD HEPA ft. Allergen Remover Air Purifier & additional spare Honeywell HEPA filters & both types of Honeywell pre-filters. Might come in useful.

Picked up an additional 18 of the 3M 2091 P100 filters for my kits.

It's been a somewhat expensive week (so far).

Hello everyone. I've been using my cell phone as my computer for so long and haven't been able to keep up in here. Now that I'm back at my desk, let me try to remember a couple percentage points of what I got, in no particular order:

built two 4-foot cubed compost bins
30w solar panel / 12v battery
2 DC LED light bulbs that go straight to the battery terminals
strings of white x-mas lights, LED and regular (AC and inverter)
dollar store string of colored xmas lights with tiny solar panel, for test purposes
couple cheap solar yard lights, as an experiment (like above)
5 gallon buckets for growing potatoes
got the spare wood stove uncovered and in place to connect to the boiler exhaust in a jiffy
2 heat powered fans for said wood stove
cut up a ton of firewood
a loofah (sp?) from dollar general for each person in the fam. I figure if you get one shower a week, better scrub hard.
30+ rolls TP/tissues/toiletries/anti bacterial bar soap/cleaning supplies/dog bones
3 bottles whiskey (variety)
ammo: 12g buck, 357mag, 9mm
90 day LED lantern with enough backup batteries for several years of light (on low setting, 8-12 hours a day).

and a shiny new Outback for the wife

Picked up 10 sheets of paneling for the cabin at the BOL. Will be replacing the current paneling in the cabin this spring/summer.

Still not up to snuff and taking a rest day doing chores at home . I cut my hair for the second time to keep from sweeping bangs out of my eyes , adapting to keep long hair secured and in a pony tail right now .

I bleached two storage refridgerators .

Formulating a protocal for handling the pets , how do you prevent cross contamination with a pet everyone wants to be in contact with and they stroke the pets hair? Plus the pets roam all over the home so if a person is sick , the pet could transmit the virus to another room ? Started analyzing how many things I touch , how do you minimize transfer ? At least my pets do not leave my property and have no contact with the public .

Wrote a letter to my sons university asking for a pre emptive plan for students to continue education online spelling out my exact concerns not only for their welfare but so they can assist families with senior members more at risk .

Offering a bribe for millenial sons to come help me on the farm rather than socialize on their week long break from school .

Ordered 2 gallons of Hibclens online, expected shipping end of March . Ordered better can openers . Ordered eye protection goggles .

Going down the hill to the 'big town' to pick up a couple more base cabinets for the garage, I installed one 36" base and upper cabinet earlier today. After installing the two 30" bases tomorrow, I will be able to put the 2" thick Baltic butcher block countertop on so I can mount my reloading presses and be back in business.

Bought a block of Ucore Rare Metals Inc. stock.
It's a penny stock that I think possibly has a big upside in the not to distant future

Thanks to a GTC (Government Travel Card) snafu, my flight home got cancelled. Next available is tomorrow at 1030. Get to spend the night in one of the worst places possible given this virus spread. Iíve only seen a few people in masks, two Asians and a black guy. Sucks they donít have a USO here so Iíll find the most out of the way place possible and cross my fingers.

The lady knows her feller, don't she?

Ted, I hope your flight home goes off without a hitch. Stranded is always a PITA....

Went through and inventoried all food/medical items. Made sure all nearing expiration is moved to the pantry, then heading out to pick up a few bulk items.

Coco is nice! Classic fragrance, like Joy, which is my favorite.

No doubt your wife is very happy with the perfume.
