Not sure if I agree with you that Wrestlemania will be cancelled.

Between FOX deals and those fat Saudi Arabia paychecks, WWE is in full money making mode and I doubt they'll want to jeopardize one of their biggest paydays of the year.

Dunno.... SXSW is 350 million and Austin shut that down like it was breadcrums. Though, most of the bigwigs coming to Austin decided to bail out so I'm sure it was pretty much a universal choice one way or another.

I don't know who you are calling that is offering high mortgage rates. I work in the mortgage business and have been at office till 1am every night this week. I've been locking in sub 3% rates all week and low 3s on 30 year fixed mortgages. Rates are the lowest they've ever been.

Unfortunately it seems to be something here. I also found an article on it and it made sense as to why my rates would be 4 and 5%. Now... A couple mentioned that they would beat another so forth and so on but that's a pain to play back and forth. The lowest I got from those guys was around 3.5 to 3.75.

I have no debt - Credit score is 707 - Car note is the only bills and it's nothing crazy - Have savings and one helluva 401k I could borrow from (but not going to). Doesn't make much sense. My FCU was the 3.5 offer.

Maybe it's just texas. Some stupid stuff comes out of this place sometimes.

Well this sucks. Surely a sign of less traveling people. My job is in tourism.

A woman wouldn’t shake my hand this morning because of this virus. Costco is out of toilet paper.

People are overreacting.

Please let this doom porn go away.

I heard Costco was actively spraying people with disinfectant when they came into the store... lol!!

They weren’t spraying people here. But they did have a guy wiping disinfectant cloths on everyone’s handles of their shopping carts before we walked in the front door.

I'm sure it wont be long before my office starts telling people to stay home and work from there. They do it when we have bad weather or icy roads, I'm thinking this is next.

We're already working that way when we need or want to so our company is capable of that for long stretches if necessary.

I think I saw something yesterday or Friday from Cisco, saying they were providing free WebEx licenses for people that are told to work from home by their companies. Here's a link to one article.

Coachella canceled until October.

Burning Man is probably next. I might as well look for another gig in Aug/Sept.

6 mo. is a long way away but it's the Insurance Lawyers that will have the final say and I can't wait until they make up their mind.
