I didn't know where to write this message.  There is a Corona epidemic all over the world. Is everyone okay? In Turkey, it was announced that virus. But in which city it is hidden. We do not know what awaits us in the coming days.
I wish this to be finished as soon as possible and i hope you will be fine.  :pray:
Please do not forget! My English is not very good.
If something I write breaks your heart or if it sounds disrespectful to you, it's google translator fault :)

We do have a few cases here so far.

Personally I am not panicking at this stage, our government seems to have a handle on the problem.

Our government too is taking all necessary steps to try and stop the spread.  Our schools and a lot of businesses are closed.  People are being asked not meet in large groups.  It is a concern mostly for the older folks who have health issues already. It seems children are not affected but can carry it.  Our population seems to be panicking.  Our news media is driving this, in my opinion.   The regular flu kills more people each season.


However, I know the concern is not overcrowding the hospitals which has happened in Italy.  So whatever we need to do to help stop the spread, we will do and get through this. I personally do not feel panicked.


Best wishes to all to stay well!

Nolan your lucky, NZ has a strong PM and willing to do the tough decisions, I wish we had her.

My country is ruled by an indecisive government.

Stay safe everyone and isolate  :hug:

In two hours  time we begin our full-blown 4 weeks of lock-down  :heeha: . At the moment we are all OK  O0 . I will do several paintings  :painting: and drawings and hopefully continue on my book and short stories. Will also be spending some time  :coffee: in the workshop. Just finished a storage rack for safe keeping of all my paintings.


Keep safe over this period.  :flowers:

Plenty of time now to paint and do projects around the house.  :)


This is becoming wearisome  :( [size=78%] [/size][/size]and from what I hear will continue for quite a long time. Most folks are being helpful and calm, but there are those that are using this to prey on others.  Shameful. [size=78%] >:( [/size]  One such scam is to rob the household claiming if they don't give up their money they will expose them to the virus.  When all of humanity is fighting the same enemy, you would think we would band together. 



I do wish you all the best during this time and pray it ends quickly and you are all safe. :hug:

Our government has acted decisively and it is going to help us, but still waited too long. They had the opportunity to shut everything down before community spread happened, but they specifically waited for that to happen :crazy2: :idiot2:

Thanks for asking Belma, I found myself taking a line dancing class that my daughter posted on facebook last night. i am also going for a walk every morning and posting photos from my walks.I have started a gratitude journal where I list 3 things that happened during the day that I am grateful for. That as well painting everyday is keeping me sane. I hope you all stay safe and keep creating.

At this moment we here in SA we are more or less ok. Our number cases are climbing daily, deaths still low. We are on a lockdown. But in a country like ours with loads of informal settlements it is hard to control the lockdown as thousands stay on top of each other. A majority of people here don't seem to take this serious.  :(

I'm taking this lock down very seriously, after two weeks I locked my wife in the garage for four hours to give each of us a rest.   :devil2:
