Re: Is the Coronavirus affecting you

Thank you all for your condolences! It has been a hard time. We also lost my father-in-law last week. He was also 89. Neither death was due to coronavirus, but both were probably hastened by side-effects of the coronvirus. But God is good all the time, and things will get better.

Re: Is the Coronavirus affecting you

It is sort of a long story, but I believe my mother died (April 10th) because of the shutdown from the coronavirus. I just have to console myself that she was 89 and probably was in her last year of life anyway.

I am obviously way in the minority here, but I have heard varying opinions of the usefulness of masks. It seems like unless they are the N-95 masks, they probably aren't going to do much good, given the size of the virus--and who can find N-95 masks? I don't have a sewing machine. So I have made the...

Re: What Are You Doing to Stretch Your Meat Supply?

We live in the country and rarely eat out, partly from frugality, partly for health, partly because it would take us 20 minutes one way to get to a restaurant and therefore it is almost always a time savings to just cook at home. So even during normal time we eat out maybe once a month on a date nig...

Re: Is the Coronavirus affecting you

As beef farmers, we have sort of the opposite problem. We have plenty of beef still in our freezer from the last time we slaughtered a steer, but we are getting ready to cull a couple of cows that are barren, and we're not sure we will get much at all for them--like maybe 10-25% of their worth. We'r...
