State of emergency in Romania from Monday. Well, this'll be fun. One more day to stock up on the vino.


Before you judge me, make sure you're perfect.

Not so for us, she's fit as a fiddle, I have 2 respiratory conditions. It's all theoretical now. Trump has banned all Europeans.

Update -but things evolve quickly- since yesterday midnight all shops/bars/restaurants/cinemas/nighclubs etc. are now closed, except for those essential (food, pharmacies, gas stations...). The decision caught everyone off-guard, but was necessary because people seem to take the problem lightly. The transportation system is reduced, before certainly a total stop soon.

I have a brother who works for our state, and he seems to have discovered a loophole when it comes to the recreational venues that would be affected.


If such a business is owned by a native tribe, then it can't be touched by state people, supposedly.
And since my workplace was bought out by the local tribe five years ago...
I may still have work down there!
Time will tell to see if this still rings true, but I'm keeping an eye out for updates, and my fingers crossed.

Not only Trump. Today Canada has restricted incoming international flights and everything in New York is getting cancelled. I saw that Niagara falls are closed to visitors too. Even if you can fly the trip might be disappointing, to say the least. :(

Nope, so much for that loophole...

A friend of mine seems to have got it last night, She was diagnosed last week with incurable lung cancer and posted on facebook that she had been readmitted with suspected covid 19 and might not survive the night. Thank goodness she did survive. She's 39 and was posting about the effect on her two young daughters.
