[size=12]Wow... I started this thread... and have been flat out since then.
 
I have spent many, many, hours on the computer and Fed Ex, UPS, and USPS are delivering packages daily, to my door, and to my Daughter in California.

I have produced my first batches of Hand Sanitizer which is being used by my Family Members, Neighbors, and at the State Headquarters of PA. State Police.  The Shortage of plastic bottles has delayed my efforts, a bit.

But... I have managed to acquire quite a few ingredients which are 'impossible' to find. I have not had to use my Everclear to date (PA. does not allow the sale of the 190 proof here in PA.).  I will be producing some large amounts today and tomorrow, of two types of hand sanitizer...  1) the WHO formula using Glycerine and Alcohol (91%) and Peroxide   2) Formula using ALOE Vera & 91% Alcohol. Vitamin E Essential Oil is added to both.

My Living room and Kitchen are staging grounds. :)

And my Wizardry on the Internet, is providing the Critically needed Toilet Paper, Paper Towels, and Disinfectant wipes also.!  Additionally there are other shortages that have developed that most might not be aware of...

So my Daughter in California... her first shipment was 72 Mega Rolls of Toilet Paper, and the other products shall remain discreetly unmentioned....

My husband's coworker (caring for to elderly parents) stopped by for her 36 roll pack of Toilet Paper last week, and hand sanitizer also...

My nextdoor Neighbors, Family of 4, received their 72 Rolls of Toilet Paper this past Monday, along with packages of Disinfectant wipes, and other goodies...

And others in dire need.......

 I can tell you about madness!  My wife Di works at a hospital. She and some coworkers got Covid-19  from a patient.  Di is home with me and on heavy meds. I help her with what she needs and try to keep things wiped down best I can, but I refuse to wear a hasmat suit. Or lock her in a room. We do have a large circle of friends and family for support..  MADNESS!

Could someone mail me some electricity?  One week since Cat 4 TC Harold hit us in Fiji and my main power line is still on the ground. Today the wind is picking up and the lines are hitting the truck as I drive by them. We tied them off a week ago but now they are damaging our trucks as we drive by. I have 4 inches on one side or Iíll be over a cliff and 4 inches on the other side and into the power lines. No room for error. Gonna go down and see if I can tie them up better. Hope to have power by May 1!!!

  We would like to thank our WAGS family for your prayers and support. Di has recovered now .  Tonight she is back in the trenches fighting that invisible enemy.  It is what she does.    JR
