    I took a #1 to my winter flop, and shaved the beard clean...

    I’m expecting to see this at my barbershop whenever it reopens:

    Ever wonder what you look like bald? Now's the perfect opportunity. If you don't like it, nobody you know has to see it.

    It’s why you don’t need a heated toilet seat in the wintertime.

    Thanks. Sounds like the garage should be able to do this fairly cheaply then.

    Update: both the garage and the dealership confirmed that there is no way to bypass the compressor... no belt listed in the catalog that is compatible with my engine, and no way to fit a substitute belt that would be long-term stable. I have a call in to a local towing outfit and an appointment at the dealership for 1300 today. It's gonna be expensive, but hopefully I'll have my wheels back before the state shuts down completely.

    DUI and divorce lawyer stimulus plan for this fall. :)

    Denver made sure to keep the pot shops open too. LOL.

    I saw today on NECN that the recreational pot shops in MA are being ordered closed. (Medical marijuana dispensaries are allowed to stay open.)

    The other reason for liquor sales, is how many would wind up in hospitals for DTs if liquor stores closed?

    The feds have issued a waiver for CDL renewals and DOT medical renwals. You've got until June 30th now.

    car repairs are essential so they are not included in the lockdown

    That's true here (lockdown starts statewide in 8 minutes). But most places will not allow customers inside now. You have to drop your car off and pick it up when they're done.

    I got lucky yesterday: I was able to wait inside the dealership.

    Here they are state stores. Sales are up 59% (duh) so the state stands to make a lot of money by keeping them open.
