    I’m feeling ill over my son’s riding school potentially having to shut down if people don’t keep going for lessons. Last weekend was full but this week we have more closures and more people are staying at home.

    The owner is concerned if there is a drop off she may have to sell off or even put down some of them. This is the kicker that is making me want to dip into my savings and bank roll her for the rest of the year - she’s a damn proud lady and may not even allow it but I could rally the forces. It goes against my normal stance to not intervene in the market, animals make me irrational.

    Most places will buy hay and feed in bulk.
    I’ll found out how much feed she has. Have provided over the counter supplements and grooming product for the horses last year and can get cost price equine medication from my work for her. She has a long term lease that she has to pay otherwise no where to stable all the horses (>20), maybe she can speak to the property owner and get an extension on lease repayments.

    I don't see that new testing will be helpful unless they actually decide to test everyone. Over here we are up to testing I think 5000(goal was 7000 but I don't think we got there yet) people per day, with drive through testing stations even, that is while the entire nation has been put in increasing self isolation. The US to my knowledge still only has plans to test those hospitalized and the rich that can afford an expensive procedure, meanwhile you have guys like this tool here that just wander around even when they suspect they may be infected:

    Rand Paul is a tool, anyway, with shitty takedown defense...

    The pharma I work at turned one of our lines to producing hand sanitiser and surface sanitisers overnight (WHO had posted the formulation). Distributed to all employees and boxes of the stuff for us to hand out at our local schools. No logos or branding on the product either so it is not about marketing.

    I am going a tiny bit stir crazy at the idea I shouldn’t fly even interstate, so have booked a holiday house in the Blue Mountains about 90 minutes west of Sydney. Will go out for a few bush walks, order as much takeaway to support the local cafes, and relax. Was supposed to have been in Florida for 3 weeks...oh well, another time.
    Don't eat any bats.

    Very bad for moral
    Yeah, the flip flopping is pretty frustrating because most people will just latch on to whichever is convenient to what they want to do. Then everyone can be pissed at each other for not getting it.

    If they carry on like this the army will be deployed and butt-strokes will commence until morale improves.
