  5. Right now I'm reading The Forgiven by Marta Perry. It's an Amish Romance. I'm OLD and not usually into romances anymore but I wanted something light. It's pretty good. I just finished listening to The Throwaway Children by Diney Costeloe. It's a heartbreaker. I have a Baldacci, The Fix I'll be starting next.
  6. COVID-19 HOSPITALIZATIONS IN FLORIDA One of the tools that officials are relying on to determine whether the coronavirus situation is improving in the state is hospitalization data. Unlike testing, which might be limited or take days to report results, hospitalizations can help give officials a real-time snapshot of how many people are severely ill with COVID-19. Last month, the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration began reporting the number of patients hospitalized statewide with a “primary diagnosis of COVID.” The data, which is updated at least every hour, does not distinguish between the number of COVID-19 patients in hospital intensive care units and those in acute care beds, which require less attention from nurses. Previously, the state was only providing the total number of hospitalizations in its statewide and county-level data. Miami-Dade was an exception, with hospitals self-reporting a number of key metrics, including hospitalizations, to the county, which has made this data public for several months. As of 12:46 p.m. Monday, there were 7,974 COVID-19 patients admitted into hospitals throughout the state, according to the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration dashboard. Of those, 1,655 were in Miami-Dade, 1,159 in Broward, 526 in Palm Beach and 14 in Monroe counties, according to the agency. Florida’s current hospitalization data does not always match the hospitalization data reported in Miami-Dade’s “New Normal” dashboard. Jennifer Moon, deputy mayor of Miami-Dade, previously told the Miami Herald that there is a number of reasons why the county’s hospitalization data might differ from the state’s. She said these reasons include the frequency of daily updates, human error and whether the state’s agency is including in its data the patients who visited the emergency room for other urgent medical needs and tested positive for COVID after they are admitted. On Monday, Miami-Dade hospitalizations for COVID-19 complications rose from 1,916 to 1,943, according to Miami-Dade County’s “New Normal” dashboard. According to Monday’s data, 96 people were discharged and 122 people were admitted. On Monday, Miami-Dade hospitalizations for COVID-19 complications rose from 1,916 to 1,943, according to Miami-Dade County’s “New Normal” dashboard. According to Monday’s data, 96 people were discharged and 122 people were admitted. MIAMI-DADE COUNTY "NEW NORMAL" DASHBOARD The state has had a total of 27,366 Florida residents hospitalized for COVID-19-related complications, according to Florida’s COVID-19 Data and Surveillance Dashboard. COVID-19 TESTING IN FLORIDA Testing in Florida has seen steady growth since the COVID-19 crisis began. Testing, like hospitalizations, helps officials determine the virus’ progress and plays a role in deciding whether it is safe to lift stay-at-home orders and loosen restrictions. On Monday, Florida’s Department of Health reported 60,994 new tests on Sunday. The positive rate was 12.70% of the total, according to the report. In total, 4,908,466 tests have been conducted. On Monday, Florida’s Department of Health reported 60,994 new tests on Sunday. The positive rate was 12.70% of the total, according to the report. In total, 4,908,466 tests have been conducted. FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH To date, 3,758,496 people have been tested in Florida. Of the total tested, 491,884 (about 13.09%) have tested positive. The state says there are 3,228 tests with pending results.
  7. Yesterday
  8. Sure hope you can get a car and that you two stay safe during the hurricane, @Littlesister! Walked first and then ran around a bit this morning. Got 2 cases of wide mouth quarts at Walmart. Still looking for pints. Doing laundry now. Will probably slice jalapenos later for Candied and canning.
  9. Joyfield you are one lucky person to have a full outdoor kitchen. My set up is outside the garage door. And then I have to put it all away when it cools down. Just to drag it all out again when I want to use it again. I would love to have something like that and I know just the place to build it if I can find someone to do that for me. Love it. Nice work.
  10. Today has been a trying day. Was thinking I would get the soup made and canned but it never happened. People just pluck my nerves sometimes. First I have been on phone back and forth with both UPS and USPS. They sent two of my packages to the wrong house. I have a code number but seems like they are not locating my packages. Can't get in touch with either place without being on hold for anywhere from 1 to 3 hours. This is just uncalled for. All this happened last Thursday and I am still trying to locate my packages. I can't get hold of the place I ordered from either. On top of that I dropped the car off a dealership for repair. This should be a recall but either way it won't cost me. But I told them after they did the diagnastics to call me before they started the work. Did I get that call. NO . So after several calls back to them and then getting a person after about 6 times of leaving messages for them to call me. I was hot. instead of the car being repaired today they have to order parts that will take over 2 or 3 days depending on this hurricane. So they are now saying that the parts should be in Wed. and it will take 4 to 5 hours to fix. Depending on when the parts come in for them to start it, it could be Thursday before they start to fix it. They said I could get a rental car but at my expense. Problem is they don't pick you up in the Churchland one as that is the one they use. So unless the dealership picks me up and takes me to the rental place and then follows me over to get car and to take it back that is not happening. So now I am without a car with a sick husband and a hurricane coming in. Got to love how the wheel goes round and round. So I have gotten nothing done much today. I am tired and my shoulder is hurting. Old Arthur is playing havic on me with this weather. Told DH I am going to bed tonight with Ben Gay. He just laughed.
  11. https://protect-public.hhs.gov/pages/hospital-capacity
  12. You're welcome, Littlesister. I hope that helps. Homesteader, something like that might help with your mom, too.
  13. I will see if I can find them. Thank you. anything that will keep me from washing sheets several times a week.
  14. Don't get one with the PUL backing...those slide. We have a flat crib mattress pad cover (supposed to go under the fitted crib sheet) that worked well. That company has since made them much thinner and the newer ones slide around. I can't find the site now, but there's a company that makes washable chux-type pads. They are heavy and looked quilted. Some hospitals use them under mothers in the days after childbirth. Think as wide as a twin bed, but not as long. I had it bookmarked on my old computer, but I can't find it now. They were made in the USA. Something similar to these https://www.northshorecare.com/incontinence-products/incontinence-bed-pads/washable-bed-pads
  15. Thank you for that input. But this is an issue of his very thin skin and he scrapes it on the sheets turning over in bed. The blood gets all over the sheets. This time the bandage came off during the night as it is his elbow and hard to bandage. I am looking for something that will not move with him in bed as he turns over. The chucks pads don't work as they won't stay put when he moves around. Thinking about a very large baby pad.
  16. Adult diapers are reasonably affordable and work well. I used them with my aunt and grandfather for bowel issues and one of my teens who wet past the usual age. They were lifesavers. Equate Assurance seem to stay in place well and are only about .50 each.
  17. I am using the chucks now. But when he rolls over they move out of place. I just wonder if the baby changing pads would stay in place better when he rolls over in bed. That would be a good option if they would stay put when he moves around.
  18. Would baby changing pads work for putting underneath your DH, Littlesister? We had a nice absorbant ones for under DD, but they also worked very well under ME when she was a newborn and my milk seemed to be leaking everywhere...especially when I slept. Saved on changing sheets many times.
  19. I don't have the medical struggles with my mom like you do with your hubby. I do find that I'm washing sheets, clothes, and the toilet seat cover much more often. She goes into fits of diarrhea for no apparent reason and her panty pad doesn't hold everything inside. She is always so embarrassed as I clean her and everything else up. I just remind her that she cared for me as a baby and I can take care of her in old age. I wish I was 25 y.o. like she was when she cared for me.
  20. This weekend, we did a bit of shopping. Kroger had beef roast 3.29 lb so we got 2 more and some chicken. The freezer is starting to get full. We ran into Michael's which was next door and I spent the last of my birthday gift card on planner stuff to keep track of the kid's school stuff better. Got a few more baby things and a lot of diapers in assorted sizes so we will be ready. D-52 so any day now. Apparently laundry baskets are hard to find now. I did manage to get 2 at Target, but they are much lower quality than I usually buy. DH painted the changing table/dresser for the nursery and it is drying in the garage. I managed to rearrange the kid's office for school next month and started decluttering their giant pile of 'stuff' they left from last year. I even managed to make room for the sewing machine and art supplies (why the ever loving heck do we have enough art supplies to supply a small country?) I made Kabobs and he grilled 14 for the 2 of us so I have plenty of leftovers to use throughout the week. I usually use metal skewers, but I had some wooden ones that came from somewhere (please don't ask for how long because a decade might be the answer) and I'm trying to 'use up' misc things. I soaked them first and they did well.
  21. Did stop at a yard sale yesterday and made a wonderful find! A Paula Deen enameled, oval cast iron "roaster"? for 5$! It's red, but very similar to this one...I think it's a 7 quart size.
  22. Yesterday was a long work day for both of us. Cleared the homestead's kitchen area of the table (was only there temp. until the dining room is cleared!) so we can begin to arrange the appliances like we want them. Cleared out the laundry/mud room to make space for the smallest of our chest freezers, and will move the one occupying space in the kitchen, to the space where the small one was. Hubby will be re-arranging the positions of the washer and dryer so they're both on the same wall, and then the chest freezers (3) will all fit. Then...we'll take the electric stove out and put in the gas one we bought 2 years ago as well as it's range hood. So much work that still needs to be done...but making progress. We're still waiting for the mechanic to call and say he has room for us to have the pickup towed there to get the replacement engine put in. All the green beans are in the big freezer so I'll rest a bit before I start pressure canning them. Would like to be able to just wait and do them when the homestead's gas stove is in place. The electric stove here is cantakerous so I have to keep finding a "sweet" spot to keep the weight where it's supposed to be. Makes it tough when using Tattler's ... so have used mostly the metal ones. But it doesn't make a big deal if one or two of the Tattler's don't seal. I just put them in the frig and use them for another meal. Had some really toad strangler rains a couple of days ago. We did fine, but had friends have their basement flood and a couple of towns away from us had highways, streets and roads flooded over/impassable. Hubby worked at the homestead on his wood racks. Needs to get the plywood and sheetrock out of the homestead's dining room and into the garage. I baked bread and listened to christian music off and on most of the day.

Or either they would become more accurate. Apparently, that was pie in the sky thinking. https://www.covidexitstrategy.org/ has some excellent charts, including the potential for contact tracing in a given state, the doubling time in a given state and so on. It has some hard-core estimates like how many ICU beds are in use also. Tonight is August 2.
  24. Happy birthday to your furbaby!
  25. Last time I pressure canned our Okra with diced tomatoes and sweet corn. Processed as I would for corn. It's delicious over pasta!
  26. Not an approved method for the squash and zucchini ... but ...I slice the squash in about 1/4 inch slices and raw pack. The zucchini I cut in cubes about an inch or so, and again, raw pack. I add water to them both, 1 inch head space. My potatoes I chunk them, and some that are small I put in whole. Works for me.
  27. A must...we have a "man door" on that side of the garage, but hubby will run a line through from the outside...and we'll hide the tank under a lean to...keeps the govment off ya!
  28. On July 16, Florida had a total of 23,170 children ages 17 and under who had tested positive since the beginning of the pandemic, according to the Florida Department of Health. By July 24, that number jumped to 31,150. That's a 34% increase in new cases among children in eight days. As of July 16, 246 children had been hospitalized with coronavirus. By July 24, that number had jumped to 303. That's a 23% increase in child Covid-19 hospitalizations in eight days. During that same time period, the death toll among children in Florida went from 4 to 5. On July 18, Kimora "Kimmie" Lynum died from Covid-19 complications, according to state health department records. The 9-year-old girl's family said Kimmie had no known pre-existing conditions. The surges in child Covid-19 cases and hospitalizations come amid rampant debate over whether children should return to classrooms this fall, or if they should continue remote learning. They also directly contradict US Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos' claims that children are "stoppers of the disease" who "don't get it and transmit it themselves." Researchers in South Korea found that young people between ages 10 and 19 transmit the virus just as easily as adults. But it's not just the numbers of new cases and hospitalizations that are rising in Florida. The test positivity rate among children has gone up, too -- from 13.4% to 14.4% between July 16 and 24, according to the state health department. The test positivity rate for children was particularly high in Martin County (25.3%) and Miami-Dade County (19.6%).
