  1. At this point, I’m kind of waiting to hear about reduced schedules and working from home options, if any. I work for a municipality The city I work in now can offer that. In the last city I worked it would equal unpaid time and possibility unemployment because their budget was, and still is, horrible.
  2. News from UCLA- https://newsroom.ucla.edu/releases/ucla-transitions-to-online-instruction
  3. LA Times is moving its annual book festival to October: https://events.latimes.com/festivalofbooks/
  4. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/03/07/world/europe/greece-turkey-migrants.html
  5. Are you referring to this? https://www.sciencealert.com/no-the-cdc-is-not-telling-people-to-shave-to-avoid-covid-19
  6. I was looking at something similar on Amazon. Maybe I'll just order both regular and silicone lids to see which type works best.
  7. If only I could transport them with a plate on top!
  8. I have no choice but to wash by hand because we do not have a dishwasher. I also never put the lids in the microwave. Still, they crack. 🤷‍♀️
  9. I have a set of Pyrex 2-cup and 4-cup bowls. I love them for food storage. I HATE the lids because inevitably they wind up cracking and needing to be replaced. I have ordered replacement lids from Amazon before and will probably wind up doing that again. However, I thought I'd ask to see if anyone has other lid options that they have found successful. I was reading that some people have used silicon stretch lids instead but how good of a seal does that produce? I usually use these bowls for taking my meals to work, so I need something that will help prevent leaking.
  10. I read the same, only it's more for promotion and increased sales: https://www.billboard.com/articles/business/chart-beat/8550061/jennifer-lopez-shakira-song-catalog-huge-super-bowl-sales-gain
  11. From a couple of sites, it's an annual. I also read said it's more of a common purslane (edible) vs horse purslane (not so edible/ toxic) issue. Perhaps part of the issue is that vegetation springs up literally overnight when it's the monsoon/ rainy season? I could this taking off and then crowding out the more native vegetation that would be necessary for insects and animals of the area.
  12. Disco reminds me of Sunday afternoons when I was a kid because my mother would turn off the TV around noon and play her albums.
  13. Crown Royal bags are also handy for carrying one's gaming dice.
  14. More hugs. So sorry to hear about your mom.
  15. Regarding the bolded, I haven't see that kind of soap since elementary/ middle school days...
  16. Put their cellphones on speaker for a conversation in public indoor spaces like a library? And the ones who do always seem to have the volume turned up loudly. Honestly, the rest of us do not need to know or care about your financial or medical business... (It should go without saying that my comment does not include with hearing issues.)
  17. Representing LA SoCal here. Your description is how I feel about Thirfty's ice cream. As a kid, a scoop was $0.25 and they were cylindrical due to their unique scoopers. Because it was cheaper than Baskin Robbins, I was more likely to get one. Plus, I found their mint chocolate chip to be far superior to Baskin Robbins. Same artificial green dye, though. 😂 All the same, if they still existed (Today's version from Rite Aid is ok), that is how I imagine it would be. Carvel was awesome, too. Today's freezer case items are good, but not like what I remember from the stores.
  18. I vote plane, unless your ds likes seeing lots of scenery. Google tells me that's a 16 hour train trip vs about 4 hour plane ride.
  19. This. In theaters that I've been to with assigned seating, it applies to the whole theater. It's stupid that they have a system where in one theater some can choose seats ahead of time and others can randomly choose where to sit.
  20. My inner medieval studies major heart is dying. I had always wanted to see it.
  21. Doesn't add to the thread, I just thought it was an interesting tangent as I've never really thought about pay periods and different industries.: https://www.bls.gov/opub/btn/volume-3/how-frequently-do-private-businesses-pay-workers.htm
  22. David Tennant Does a Podcast With... The first episode was with Olivia Coleman. FYI: there is free use of f bombs and other adult language.
