    1) Turn off the news, disconnect, and WALK OUTSIDE
    2) Get more Vitamin D, but dont burn
    3) Move. Motion is the root of EMotion. Movement has been shown to change feelings of depression!
    4) Focus. Focus on the things you can do. I have redone 1/2 my driveway, changed outlets, put in new lights in the bathroom, changed out the TOIL Flush and Lid JUST today. I will make MY LIFE better.
    5) Have an Empathetic Conversation. That means listening to someone elses problems WITHOUT solving them. Asking engaging questions to keep them on topic, until they exhaust the topic.
    6) Love. Give someone a 7 second hug, it releases dopamine. Also, petting your dog for about the same amount of time.

    Our Reality is COMPRESSED due to the speed of communication. In the old south, you would hear ONE Piece of a rumor on Saturday. Go back home, and process it for a week. Then get the next update on Saturday, again... THEY WERE LUCKY!

    For those of us who have never lived under an oppressive government, we are starting to learn what it feels like. The 4th of July is far less worth celebrating this year than in most prior years.

      The 4th of July was never something to celebrate.
      I-N-D-E-P-E-N-D-E-N-C-E is something to celebrate and to risk your life, liberty, and sacred honor to regain.

      I agree, there isn't much independence to celebrate this year.

        Hey...this old thing isn't bothering me, I am just feeling people out. I recall (1942-45). I had no bubblegum. We used 'blackout shades' at night. When the German POWs passed by our home going to the fields, they waved at me and I waved back because they were as blond and handsome as my daddy!

    It was getting better, then Cuyahoga County and 6 others here in N. Ohio decided to make masks mandatory. I live in Lorain County, not required, yet. The only good news is that the Mayor of Miami puts the blame on their-19 uptick on the masses of protesters clogging the streets for hours on end. I have plenty to keep me busy, so it could be far worse.

    Oh hey, I got a B-12 shot and I am feeling better. My little dog is droopy because he likes to go for 4 block walks and I have only been doing 2. He's very sociable but I am not going to put a mask on my dog! I think I am allergic to the fabric in some of these masks. They sting!

    If everything had gone according to plan, I would have completed running events in seven different states by now … all of these have been cancelled or postponed until next year. On the bright side, the postponed events are already paid for, and my 2021 calendar is getting filled. Plus, my yard has never looked better -- getting outside and putting on local running miles has been effective. Still, I have to agree with you -- this C19 Global Crisis nonsense is getting very old … the panic porn on the MSM is ridiculous. In spite of it all, I will be enjoying a trip to South Dakota with friends the first week of August - hitting all the best places including the Badlands, Mt. Rushmore, Custer State Park .. and a long slow drive back home through Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks. It's important to keep mentally busy and work on creating plans.

    The biggest news about Covid is that deaths are dropping rapidly in spite of the so-called spike in new cases. Just like SARS and the seasonal flu, the virus has simply lost potency and the virus emergency is over.

    Unfortunately the state (at least California) isn't willing to accept that fact and end the shutdown emergency that it is still causing.

    What we need right now is a good, aggressive, predatory class-action lawyer willing to file a motion for habeas relief for the entire state. Because you and I can defy the law by going out, but we can't patronize businesses if the owners are afraid to open them.

    What is depressing is watching people fall for the nonsense.

    Governor Sissylik of Nevada ordered a mask mandate for the entire State with no end in sight.

    Note statement at the very beginning. "When and where am I required to wear a face covering?" "Whenever you leave the house." And then proceeds to list exceptions. Well, which is it? No explanation.

    Elko Daily Free Press has a site:

    Hovering on Elko County you get:

    Confirmed cases 79 Confirmed deaths 1

    Cases per 100,000 151.19 Deaths per 100,000 1.91

    Ummm, Elko County (4th largest in nation) has a population of 52,778 as July 1, 2019. Let's do the math. Oh, wait let's not. Let's just run out and say that Elko County now leads all the Nevada Counties in cases per 100,000.

    And who is the .91 person that died?

    It is either hilarious or depressing.
