  1. Coronachat - vents, whines, flummoxes & miscellaneous

    A lot of big chains stores in the U.S. said they won't be paying rent, either. I think they should be made to shut down their online shopping and, in some cases, take out food orders. (Cheesecake Factory was one.)
  2. Cancel holiday over corona virus?

    IKR? I haven't seen my son and my family in almost a year and a half. That's a record for me.
  3. Cancel holiday over corona virus?

    I'm booked to the U.S. in May. Just attempted to start my cancellation process and this is what I got from Expedia after entering my info -   Given the exceptional circumstances, we may not be able to respond before your travel date.

    And he will continue blaming Obama for all of it, even the virus itself.
  5. You are not obliged to leave your windows open or keep your heat on high. That is ridiculous. Opening a window and airing out your room every now and then is a good idea and I imagine you have done it or it would get pretty stinky there.   That is just cheap ass flooring that wasn't installed properly. The professional will easily see that. Unless it is the person who installed it. In that case, you may need to get your own professional assessment.   Best of luck!

    Please tell us you haven't been in the subway, Metall. Aren't you working from home??

      This. Not when Trump was the only person who knew it was a pandemic as he has said many times. He knew before everybody.

  9. Coronavirus

    I was surprised yesterday at the amount of cars that were out and about when I went walking. I had to cross the street several times to avoid people walking toward me - especially the 3 groups that I saw of 6 or more people. I don't know what they were thinking. Could have been families I guess.

    First, click on search and put a few key words in. There are probably already threads here on that topic.

      I know, right? Thing is that to ship it off to be repaired, we would have to pay shipping plus € 135 for them just to look at it. Then would come labor, parts, etc. He did a good job!

      Isn't that the same couple who were playing/singing that cronavirus song that someone else put up?

    I actually watched the presser last night and Trump really said this among other insane things -     here

    Our very nice Miele coffee machine decided to stop working last week. I voted to send it for repair but Himself said he could fix it. He took the thing apart and then came with a component and said that was the culprit so he ordered one (€70). It came and he installed it. No go. So then he decided it was another huge part (€50) and he ordered it. It came. No go. Then he decided it was a tiny little o-ring that needed replacing so he ordered it (20 cents). It worked!! So now we have good coffee again and have put away the emergency drip coffee supplies. Good riddance! I reckon the machine is new again with the new parts.

      No he isn't. Nobody advised him against it except for maybe Jared who is not an expert on anything.
