Mostly caught up! Praying that you don't get Covid, but if you do that it's a mild case!

Are you all in any danger from the hurricane?

I am really glad for you. One thing, and I am not being negative.... but how do they determine how long after possible exposure before your body will show up positive? I mean, if you get exposed to someone with the flu it takes at least 24-48 hours before you start to show any possible symptoms.... so how do they decide how soon after exposure should you be tested? And in the case of the woman here that has had a total of 5 positive tests in over 6 weeks, and never had a symptom, and they are still making her stay "quarantined" and yet no one in her house has come up positive..... I am getting more and more confused as to how they have come up with some of these protocols. 14 days was supposed to be the "infectious time" but she is still not allowed to go back to work or anything.
And a friend's son who got it in Alaska, positive test, quarantined for 2 weeks, had flu like symptoms but not too bad, said he will be going back to work and has been told he will not have to test anymore because you will continue to test positive.....yet everyone at work has to test twice a week that are negative?????
I don"t want anyone to get it, I wish my former fiance didn't get it and die, but how is it so arbitrary from one place to another?
I just hope you continue to stay safe, but please don't count on this vaccine. There were 2 reports out that I just read that there have been over 20 mutations already seen in samples in some labs. It is like the flu in that respect.... a "vaccine" which the flu shot isn't really, will not guarantee you won't get it.... it will maybe help your immune system put out anti bodies that will help you to fight it.....but for every mutation, that is another "variety" that is different enough from the original, that will not be "protected by a vaccine" but maybe the symptoms will be lessened.

From what I am understanding and what I have seen, nobody has any darn idea what the hell is going on with the virus or who is in charge. ...for those reasons alone, I will not get any kind of vaccine....did that one year with the flu vaccine..it made me sick as a dog.....I stay close to home during flu season and simply avoid people.
Seems to be about the same for the covid virus, stay home , avoid people and wear a face mask when out in public....:idunno

Yeah, looks like it is planning to stay off the coast so just some rain and wind for those on the east coast of FL other than the Miami area and points north. Seems the strongest winds and rain will skirt GA and SC.

We are going Elderberry picking today. Actually we are a little late, I've been in the kitchen almost every day working all day to put up garden produce, but there are still plenty of elderberries for us. Going to make elderberry syrup for the flu season. Supposedly it works for the Covid too, so will start taking it as soon as I get the syrup made.

Long morning around here, been going non stop since we started feeding at 7am, ...found a dead fluffy butt chicken and used that for racoon bait, gave all the goats here and next door their third dose of wormer, had to rescue DH from the coach whip snake that was awaiting for him to open the pump house door....(poor snake should of moved back to cow farmers field, ) he is now pig food...lady came to pick up a rabbit and I got the jar of elderberry syrup in exchange which is great considering it took her six hours to make it, ...and I was going to process eight roosters, but the heat has gotten to me sooo, those roo's will live to see tomorrow but that's it, they are going to freezer camp tommrow morning....first thing, .....
guess I will surrender myself to catching up on laundry :idunno ...at least it's nice and cool inside,
hope everyone is doing well and staying cool, have a great afternoon all :frow🐐
