    Re: Coronavirus

    My understanding is that Marcal Paper in NJ is producing the rolls you are looking for-in volume

    Marcal uses recycled paper.
    Recycled paper lacks "fiber strenth".
    Environmentally correct, but your finger goes through it way too easily.

    Just sayin... If you're used to paper made from trees, instead of old magazines, and it turns out to be the only game in town. Learn to be careful, and count on washing your hands twice.

    A former classmate was the founder's grandson. I took a tour of their plant once. A significant percentage of the raw materials were published by Playboy. You don't want to go too "deep".

    Re: Coronavirus

    Heres a good one to consider sissies


    Hereís one we older people will understand and you younger folks need to learn from. Itís the best Iíve seen so far!

    I talked with a man today, an 80+ year old man. I asked him if there was anything I can get him while this Coronavirus scare was gripping America.

    He simply smiled, looked away and said:

    "Let me tell you what I need! I need to believe, at some point, this country my generation fought for... I need to believe this nation we handed safely to our children and their children...

    I need to know this generation will quit being a bunch of sissies...that they respect what they've been given...that they've earned what others sacrificed for."

    I wasn't sure where the conversation was going or if it was going anywhere at all. So, I sat there, quietly observing.

    "You know, I was a little boy during WWII. Those were scary days. We didn't know if we were going to be speaking English, German, or Japanese at the end of the war. There was no certainty, no guarantees like Americans enjoy today.

    And no home went without sacrifice or loss. Every house, up and down every street, had someone in harm's way. Maybe their Daddy was a soldier, maybe their son was a sailor, maybe it was an uncle. Sometimes it was the whole damn family...fathers, sons, uncles...

    Having someone, you love, sent off to war...it wasn't less frightening than it is today. It was scary as Hell. If anything, it was more frightening. We didn't have battle front news. We didn't have email or cellphones. You sent them away and you hoped...you prayed. You may not hear from them for months, if ever. Sometimes a mother was getting her son's letters the same day Dad was comforting her over their child's death.

    And we sacrificed. You couldn't buy things. Everything was rationed. You were only allowed so much milk per month, only so much bread, toilet paper. EVERYTHING was restricted for the war effort. And what you weren't using, what you didn't need, things you threw away, they were saved and sorted for the war effort. My generation was the original recycling movement in America.

    And we had viruses back then...serious viruses. Things like polio, measles, and such. It was nothing to walk to school and pass a house or two that was quarantined. We didn't shut down our schools. We didn't shut down our cities. We carried on, without masks, without hand sanitizer. And do you know what? We persevered. We overcame. We didn't attack our President, we came together. We rallied around the flag for the war. Thick or thin, we were in it to win. And we would lose more boys in an hour of combat than we lose in entire wars today."

    He slowly looked away again. Maybe I saw a small tear in the corner of his eye. Then he continued:

    "Today's kids don't know sacrifice. They think a sacrifice is not having coverage on their phone while they freely drive across the country. Today's kids are selfish and spoiled. In my generation, we looked out for our elders. We helped out with single moms whose husbands were either at war or dead from war. Today's kids rush the store, buying everything they can...no concern for anyone but themselves. It's shameful the way Americans behave these days. None of them deserve the sacrifices their granddads made.

    So, no, I don't need anything. I appreciate your offer but, I know I've been through worse things than this virus. But maybe I should be asking you, what can I do to help you? Do you have enough pop to get through this, enough steak? Will you be able to survive with 113 channels on your tv?"

    I smiled, fighting back a tear of my own...now humbled by a man in his 80's. All I could do was thank him for the history lesson, leave my number for emergency, and leave with my ego firmly tucked in my rear.

    I talked to a man today. A real man. An American man from an era long gone and forgotten. We will never understand the sacrifices. We will never fully earn their sacrifices. But we should work harder to learn about them...learn from them...to respect them.

    Re: Coronavirus

    Hello Pete trout hunter, Read your post and had me remembering during the WW2 times. I was born in 1937 and remember crushing tin cans at age 5. My job was cutting both ends of the tin cans and then stepping on them to flatten them. We had a Army base inRidgewood,NJ at the duck pond on Ridgewood Ave. We would invite some of the boys for dinner on a Sat. Night and my mother would play the piano and we would sing until I had to go to bed. There are so many stories I could write about but would take to long on this site. We survived nd everyone pitched in during WW2. Bill the mailman

    Re: Coronavirus

    All well and good to praise and appreciate the greatest generation. Let's take a minute to look at one that came between them and the ungrateful young bastards running around not giving proper praise. The kids of that great generation sure seemed to appreciate sacrifice as they enjoyed the most prosperous time anyone alive now would have enjoyed. They lived off their parents, burnt their draft cards, invented junk bonds, the me generation, huge deficits, life on credit, he who dies with the most toys wins, greed is good, cocaine, just say no, rogaine, viagra, 2/3's pay for women, let the Japanese become put a wooping on American manufacturing, sent millions of good paying jobs oversees, made higher education affordable in any reasonable fashion, and let tehir kids deal with the fallout. Gen X, Gen Z, and millennials probably appreciate their grand parents and grat grand parents who lived through WWII and the Great Depression more than we give them credit. It's you damn boomers they think suck.
