I sure am missing the Sears Catalog. This wiping with bytes is not very effective.

Just saw an article in our local paper. We have several local craft brewers that have switched brewing their very good craft beers to making hand sanitizer.

This is the type of "can do" cooperation that will get us through this epidemic. Sure it will be good for their business, they can keep in business but it's also finding a need and filling it.

Only downside, I'll miss their brew until this is over.

We have a distiller in Atlanta area that stopped liquor production and made 1000 gallons of 190 proof. He added aloe (I cannot recall the other ingredient but the finished product is light green) and made hand sanitizer. He bottled it in small bottles and was giving it away with the blessings of the Ga Revenue Dept.
We need to help each other out in the situations we have now.

Running out of toilet paper is not my worry, I buy on sale & have a 4-6 week supply. Now if I can’t get it - I will cut up a couple of thin t shirts & drop them in a pail of water with a lid. I can wash every day, my automatic washer is just a few steps away. I diapered the kids with cloth diapers & washed them in a wringer washer so it would be no different, people. I would rather use disposable items like everyone else but I refuse to stress over toilet paper.

What I am concerned about is what I really need: toothpaste, dental floss, medications, laundry & dish soap, eggs, milk, yeast & flour. I’m happy to say I was already supplied with that. We moved 8 years ago & I was determined to cook from the freezer & pantry so we have less to move. It wasn’t that hard.

My cousins in Europe tell me 1 bottle of sanitizer is normal price & each bottle after that price goes up almost 30 times to curb hoarding.

Story out of Denmark from BBC.
One store will sell you the first bottle at regular price. The second one will cost you $150.
So far no takers

Hanes is now making masks. There's a hair products company in Derry, NH that's now making hand sanitizer. Many companies don't need to be told what to do by the government.


I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be Douglas Adams

RV-less for now but our spirits are still on the open road.
