Hope all my virtual farmer peeps staying safe!

I hope the moderators dont mind if I post a partially game related post. I just want to wish best of luck and safety to everyone and their families during the outbreak.

On the lighter notes...should I assume that us virtual farmers dont have the problem staying home and play our favorite game? :gamer:

I'm curious how everyone is coping with the situation?

Stay safe everyone and happy farming!!!

Having herniated two discs in my lower back about a year and a half ago I'm no stranger to staying at home for long periods of time. I'd only got back to work at the start of this year so another forced lay off is most unwelcome I can tell you. It's all for the greater good though so that's what's important.
Plenty of time for FS and getting on with jobs round the house that would otherwise be squeezed in to the time when your not working.

thank you my friend, I really appreciate your thoughts.
unfortunately I live in Cremona country side, the area where it all started. we have been locked in the house for three weeks and many more await us.
I don't want to scare you, but in a moment where you see friends or neighbors falling like pins or taken away every day it's not easy.
your messages or talking to you in addition to the comfort of my family, which fortunately we are all well for now and the support of my girlfriend, allows me to go on with an almost normal life and i play every day fs19 with a smile on my face. :biggrin2:
Thanks, take care all of you my friends.

To quote my girlfriend.. Finally a society for introverts :smileynew:

Only a few cases in my town as of yet, and it's a smallish town, so no problem to avoid crowds, but we're still pretty much inside all day apart from walking out to get some air (keeping good distance) and the occasional trip to the grocery store. The shop have now gotten a sink, which I used both on the way in and out, and while in the shop, I used my left to touch all groceries and wagon, and right for shopping list, visa card, and anything I brought in and was going out with. Kindergarden being closed is a killer for work efficiency from home office though..

It's crazy times in Italy and Spain I see on the news. Worried about how it'll spread around, and happy for having what Americans would have called a socialist government :wink3:

Heard in the news that Brazilians call it the wealthy mans virus. With more than 3 million already having died of famine this century I can understand that. Really hopes this virus will stay away from poor neighborhoods everywhere, but I don't see how that'll happen :frown:

I thought I might get told to go home today as the British Govt had decided on Monday night that the population should only go out to buy essential supplies (only one person at a time and as little as possible) for exercise once a day, or for essential work.

Turns out I do essential work... I think that's a stretch though as just one of our products could be used in food production...

I tried to argue but I was told we'd be staying two meters apart from each other and staggering the workforce day by day, but then the works manager decided as his wife was feeling under the weather they'd better self isolate for 7 days... he'd been in work for two hours when he decided that, and he's supposed to self isolate for 14 days from the moment someone in the house feels possibly 'covidy'.

So as he's gone off, I've got to do some of his work... so how am I supposed to be doing less days when I have more work to do..

And, to cap it all off, as I'm cycling home in a terribly bad mood, some woman shouts at me 'can you not just go home' I'm afraid to say my response was not at all polite. In Britain, cycling alone is an allowed form of exercise, but there were at least two people in her SUV!

I'm waiting to see if the National Health Service tell me to self isolate to shield myself for the next 12 weeks. My lungs are shot but the list of medicines that qualify for the major risk category, contains two I used to take, but my current medicine isn't on it, so who knows if I'll get a letter... And the Boss keeps asking me if I'm worried... :confusednew:

Staying home unless absolutely necessary. I am a roofer so I'm off work, trying my best to home school the kids, but things where a lot different 20 year ago, I find they are teaching me instead.
We are basically in lockdown, fine issued for ignoring soçial distancing, however I seen 15 elderly people gathered on one corner chatting away and cops drove past and didn't say a thing, I was like WTF!!
Aussie who loves himself a 7790 JD cotton picker, 100ac was most i got off in one day. (22.5hrs)
Currently a 300 ac irrigated beef farmer with Hereford Angus x.

"Leave it on the doorstep and get the h*** outta here."

Do you hear this line from Home Alone when you're delivering?

Doing good here in Minnesota usa. Live in a small town of 2500 and I don't get out much anyway. Still at work at a custom cabinet ?factory?. Right now my only concern is getting the games I have pre ordered releaseing April 24 n 28, which are about half paid off.
Playing games because they are fun. Watching movies because they are entertaining.
Long live plug n play.

*edit: We will still graduate, just will not “walk”

I'm a self employed driving instructor here in the UK so I am now facing a good three weeks shut inside, I suspect it will be longer! Here in the UK the self employed are not receiving any financial help from out government so it's hard times. However health is far more valuable than money. I hope all my virtual farmers and their families stay safe and well. On a plus side, I am enjoying FS every day!..... Every cloud!

Just seen on the news that a 21yr old has just died with no pre existing health conditions, seems nobody is safe from this thing!
