We have 2 in our county. Next county west has 56 but they have a 100,000 pop city. Remaining counties around here anywhere from 0 to 2 or 3

"How did you get double?"


I haven't filed for 2019... they obviously used my 2018 as a reference point , and that was still a joint filing, gor me and the Warden...... at least, that's the only explanation I can come up with ...




"That explains what happened to my check. LARRY GOT IT!"

Good for you, LT :hotdog:. Nada on mine :(
......

I just watched a question and answer live segment with Dr. Ed, an allergy and infectious disease doctor from a big hospital in Dallas. One thing I learned from this:

One of the questions was about the safety of produce right now. The person who asked the question said that she was using a solution of vinegar and water to wash her produce.

His reply was, "in his household," they are using a solution of lemon juice and water to spray their produce. He said that about a half of lemon squeezed into about a quart of water should work...pretty sure that's what he said but not positive.

I've been rinsing my produce with water but haven't been using any citric acid in the water.

Yep LT they used the tax year from 2018 for all.

Like my wife asked ..do you think they will tex this money on our 2020 taxes? My reply: Dang right they will. Any income we get they will take a bite out of. So be ready for that a year from now.

They have said there is going to be a corresponding tax CREDIT for the amount you got.

No, Doc ... you will not have to pay taxes on this .........


Stimulus checks aren’t taxable income. The checks are refundable tax credits, according to the Tax Foundation, a tax policy think tank. The credits will be applied to 2020 tax returns, but are advanced to taxpayers now based on their 2019 or 2018 adjusted gross income.

So far we're good here.
4 cases in the county.
The deaths are minimal in the immediate area, however there were I believe 9 deaths at a nursing home in a few counties south of here.

Saying to not let our guards down just yet cannot be stressed enough.

Just like the regular flu season.
Be mindful, take precautions, be safe.

Most of you have probably heard about the two brilliant guys :huh: from Tennessee who went around and bought up 7,700 bottles of hand sanitizer. I saw a picture of one of the guys in front of his garage with all the sanitizer stacked up.

I don't know exactly what happened, but the authorities must have come down on them like stink on **** :yum:. Maybe they were threatened with fines, jail time, or whatever. They've now decided to give it all away.

I think that all the online sellers caught on and would not list their goods.

All the stores around here have signs saying all sales final. I wonder how that is going to shake out. Since they sold more TP and Paper towels and the buyers are going to be stuck, I wonder if stores will restock to prior levels or not as sales may be slow.

That happened several weeks ago.

Same thing happened recently down under where a guy had bought somewhere around $10,000 worth of TP , paper towels, sanitizer, etc, at a store that supposedly was limiting purchases. He tried to take it back and the store manager refused and busted him on the news, said he must have made hundreds of trips to the store and/or got others to buy for him.

I don't know. I do know that back in March I ordered some toilet paper from a third-party seller on Amazon. I was feeling desperate. Never, never will I ever order from a third party seller on Amazon again. It was a fiasco. First it was an April delivery, then it was a May delivery, and then it was a June delivery. Amazon did finally make it right and refunded my money, so kudos for them.

Amazon did give me a little hand slap...said my review was not within their guidelines :ohmy:, said this is your first warning. They also sent me an email saying that the seller was no longer a seller on Amazon. In the review, I said something to effect that I thought it was a scam. I still think it was a scam, and I'd say it again if I wasn't afraid of being kicked off of Amazon. I get a lot of stuff from them. Amazon has always made things right for me when I've had a problem.

I've been waiting for almost 6 weeks and I bought from Amazon! Fortunately, I got some via Wal-Mart.com, but I'm not cancelling the Amazon order as we still haven't seen any TP or paper towels for that matter in the grocery. It's not like we won't eventually use it...
