    no. I use an app on my phone. I usually buy the same things anyway so I have a "regulars" list that I use to order.

    My wife and I are staying in and only going out for supplies or to help other family members who don't have transportation.

    I'm in an essential industry but thank God I'm able to work from home.

    I work in an Essential Service (Loaded Term... but that's beside the point), but I've been sanitizing and been keeping contact to a minimum. I bought a bunch of dry and canned goods when this whole Covid-19 shindig started to keep grocery outings to a minimum.

    At the end of the day, I'm just glad I still have a job.

    For what it's worth, I'm working from home (which limits what I can do) and only going out for combined shopping/exercise trips.

    I have a number of friends who started "working from home" but now are laid off. One of my sons-in-law works at a car dealership, and has been cut to 3 days a week.

    I've been furloughed at work, but my husband hasn't. He goes to work and comes right home. The only errands he runs after work are refilling our jugs of filtered water (whish is at an outdoor kiosk) and picking up meds at the pharmacy drive-through. I did have a few grocery pickups, but it is impossible to schedule that anymore since the time slots are taken as soon as they are posted on the website. I went to the grocery store a few days ago and shopped for me and my parents. They live across the street from me so it's easy to take care of them. I put their groceries on the doorstep, knock, and then leave.
    I have a grocery pickup coming up on Tuesday that I scheduled two weeks in advance, and have seen no open time slots since then. I am almost out of vegetables but I get deliveries from Imperfect Foods and will probably get a few things from them this week, although they are stretched almost to breaking with so many extra deliveries lately. They are running out of things as soon as they get them in as well as delaying deliveries and they don't normally do that.

    When I was a youth minister many years ago, that was one of our youth group's favorite activities --- we would round up some groceries, park down the street, sneak up on the porch of one of our shut-ins, then knock on the door and run like the dickens!

    The kids called it "knock knock zoom zoom".

    We are staying home except to get groceries. I can even phone the bank now to pay bills. Have to get scripts filled by calling the doctor's office instead of seeing the doctor. I don't know what people who are sick with things other than covid are doing, because as far as I know my doctor is closed.

    My son works in a grocery store, my daughter works in the service department of a car dealership, so they are still working. My daughter's husband works for a developer and they've closed all the showhomes, so he's doing a little bit of work at home, which is good for Kasha but not so good for him.

    Mr. mossy and I are used to being home for most of the week, anyway, so it's not much of a change for us. But I have this feeling of "well, I used to be able to go here and there if I wanted to, without restriction, and now they tell me not to", and it's like I'm a prisoner in my house.

    We got in the car this morning and went for a drive for an hour, just to do something different and charge up the car battery.

    Are you getting about three weeks to the gallon?

    I normally get more than a month on a full tank, except in the winter when it's cold and we have to run the thing for 10 minutes before we get into it.

    So, yeah, now at least 3 weeks to a gallon. Even though we use litres.
