You and your partner together during Covid crisis
« on: August 03, 2020, 02:45:40 PM »
OK, so Moby wanted to know about those of you who were separated from partner during crisis.
Here, you can tell about you and the partner you are with during crisis.

= = = = = = = = = =

I have a UW wife.
I tested negative for Covid as was required for a follow up medical operation I had a few weeks back.
Wife took Covid test last week as was required for University students and employees.  Results not back yet.

We are quarantined together on our property in small town USA.
Not tired of each other . . . yet.

Having regular sex; but I feel somewhat guilty about this in view of the cases of several others here.

Keeping very busy with tons of outdoor projects.
Getting much more done than in a typical summer because wifey did not go to Ukraine for a month (or at all), as was the earlier practice.
We are watching another Great Courses lecture series on the History of Russia from Peter the Great to Gorbachev.
Winston Churchill.  “The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.”

I live with my wife and her two Russian girl friends and until the end of next month also with my two adult teen daughters, the oldest of whom is getting married in Moscow this October...

the women tend to cluster on different floors, my wife and her friends on the first floor and my daughters on the second, and me and my golden lab in the nice cool man cave basement...

every once in awhile, when I hear the wimmin raise their voices upstairs, then I know it’s time for me and my dog to head out the back door to the woods, afore one of em, comes downstairs to try and get me AND the dog to choose “sides”

me and the dog are WAY TOO smart for that

we just head out to the woods instead...

I pack a Glock 9mm model 17 in a nylon shoulder holster
the clip holds 16 rounds of 147 grain +P hollow points, plus one in the chamber

I take my dog over to the lower spots, where the ground is wetter and we can see animal tracks
the two of us work together, he keeps his nose to the ground smelling
and I keep my eyes peeled looking for tracks or fresh scat

since I have the piece...
I will let my dog decide what to do if we encounter whatever is makin tracks
as long as it ain’t over a 300 lb hog, I’ll let my dog get in one lick before I shoot that hog in the head
and he’ll be layin on the ground with his back legs kicking spasmodically

so, if my dog feels like he wants to make the play, I’ll let him “go for it”
I totally got his back and he knows it

well, anyway “thanks for listening” that’s what life is like now in southern Texas...

oh great!
now my wife came out into the forest lookin for me, probably to complain about something unimportant
now I gotta find a MUCH further away place for me and my dog to go, now that my wife found me here in this spot
sheeet man, this my favorite spot man...

My wife and I are fine. We live in one of the lowest "zip codes" in Florida for Covid 199. My Mother-in-law and Sister-in-law tested positive (in Russia) about 1 1/2 months ago.......but are fine now.

The devaluation of world currencies will cause the price of Bitcoin to rise 50x to 100x in the next five years.

As of this writing, the price of Bitcoin is approaching $11,800, having risen 6% in the last seven days

it’s risen about 270% since March 1

I made a stoopid amount of bitcoin in Russia over the last 3 yrs
first, with mining rigs in Moscow and then south of Irkutsk

then selling up to 6 rigs per month in our compound in siber
getting 10% monthly management and operating fee in bitcoin
ROI 6 months to customer
so in first year, customer gets 2X rig cost in bitcoin, gets 1X next year and so on

then after careful analysis by me and my crew
we leveraged some of our bitcoin
to start the very first anonymous edible cannabis distribution system in Moscva
that became known as the dark web

and all it REALLY was is a way to use drugs to convert dollars, euros, or ru-bley
into bitcoin and then suck up that bitcoin again...

so you play “all ends” in this game my friends
you “swap” your bitcoin for dollars for example
use that those dollars to buy an apartment on the first floor
you can convert into a shop

then someone takes that bitcoin and buys your edibles
so they just turn right around and give you that bitcoin right back
the “velocity” of bitcoin on my exchange is about an hour!
people are buying bitcoin from me to buy edible cannabis from me

and repaying me in real estate AND bitcoin

I only pay taxes if I sell, and I have no intention of selling
I’m building up a “rent portfolio” of properties to be shared by children and grandchildren some day



after careful review of all Russian financial disclosure laws
I found a useful loophole about property purchases based in cash

so...
if you get the seller to accept cash in whatever currency you’re trying to unload
and if he straight deposits this into the bank
then HE is the one who has to write the disclosure
and the origin of “his” money is from “sale of property”

this is how you clean cash in Russia, you buy property
if you’re smart, you buy property that earns you some kinda rent
and then you just keep buying more and more

should you ever want cash you can sell your property
but it’s ALWAYS better to hang on to it
and make improvements to it

Mother in law from Ukraine came to visit us in the late winter and is still stuck with us now in August. Back when we didn't know how long this will last we upgraded her sleeping arrangements in our living room and prepared for the long haul. She was taught to plant food in turns of crisis and stock up on staples so we became preppers last April and started a Russian food themed garden. These people can easily handle times like this and are better prepared for crisis than Americans that is for sure.

She goes home next week. It's actually been great and we will all miss her. The kids especially.

The wife and I are doing well during quarantine and it has made us realize how lucky we are to have each other. She's not letting up on the home improvement projects though, it's like a never ending circle of work to keep us busy.

same here!!

I have completed two home improvement projects to make our brick home in Texas more “fire-proof”

first was to replace the shingle roof, with a ceramic tile roof, underlaid with fireproof insulation
second, was to replace glass windows with armored shatter-proof windows, resistant to rocks, molotov cocktails, shotguns, etc

next up is rebuilding each door frame to have a steel to concrete connection
and then purchasing armored double doors

I also have 24/7 security monitoring with multiple video cameras

another month or so, and I’ll be ready....

couple of months ago when I was trying to drive to Houston
I got cut-off by a George Floyd protest, there was according to the media
a mob of several thousand people who were blocking roads including a freeway

I was less than 1/2 mile from them, and I saw a highly agitated group of people wearing masks
on the edge of the horizon in front of my car, that ran all the way from my left, all the way to my right

normally, my daughter uses siri to navigate for me
but how do you ask siri
“Siri, how do I drive around the riot”

so I said “screw it” called up my appointment and rescheduled

but now I KNOW....

for some reason I though I’d only have to deal with looters a couple at a time
based on what I saw, when the looters come
there will be thousands of em at once!

so how ya gonna save yourself from that, eh homeboy?

also, stay away from the food banks!
I went to one to check it out!

first, worse food ever!
second, hours of waiting
third, everybody's angry and tense
waiting for the right spark

life in Trump Land, "
"it'll all go away soon"
but...
apparently, "we the people" were the "it"

Funny, one of our projects is getting an iron door. These women love their steel doors... The stronger the better. And exterior cameras too. You can take them out of the FSU but...

Good to see you're doing well DKMM. It's been awhile. My MIL actually has a green card so she's a legal permanent resident but she went to visit back home in Ukraine at the beginning of this pandemic and decided to stay there longer than planned. She doesn't feel a need to travel back anytime soon. If you ever decide to help your MIL get a green card, the fastest way is to do it while she's on a visit in the US.

Good to see you're doing well Jumper. I don't think one person on the forum said they are hurt a lot by COVID-19.

May be they just do not post about it, BillyB?

I was glad to read ML is still having sex, though...







We'll be back, EU ..and as a certain 'gentleman' couldn't accept my offer to 'bury the hatchet' .. Don't trust a clueless Californian 'business owner' who cannot even quote me, honestly ..

This is a state with few restrictions,relatively low population, few cases overall  and few per capita.
So the impact is minor in the overall picture here.
The neighboring states more stringent lock downs drove their residents to come here for recreation and shopping,and in many cases relocation. My home property value escalated quickly.,listings were already average of 3 days on the market, its basically 24 hrs currently. (Granted the home I sold here in 2014 was on the market 6 hours,and this one we purchased 2 hours after listing as I was on the street and the owner approached me about putting it up that afternoon )
Our child is attending school,in person, and things are normal other than being more busy than normal as mentioned.

The only effect this has had for our family is that I've often wanted to relocate to a more remote area,and this   overall ,along with social unrest,etc etc  ,likely more solidified that.
I'm a hermit at heart i suppose.

Obviuosly other regions, cities, and individuals were effected to a much higher degree.

Hope everyone is well and safe.
