Shelter in place day two and this is what I have been reduced to...

Now, do I further separate into lock washers and regular washers?
Philips button head wood separate from squared drive button head wood?

Small house, one teenager...it's going to be a long three weeks (and likely much longer). Governor just announcing he doubts school will even restart before end of the year.

You're going to need a bigger set of containers.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

Yes. That merely gives the impression of organization.

And for those interested, here is some of the info for Santa Clara County, I imagine that the other surrounding Bay Area counties have similar rules.

One interesting Q/A from the FAQ mentioning specific tech companies.

Quote

I work for Apple, Google, or another large technology company that provides products and services that the public needs to access critical services. Is my company being completely shut down?

No. However, most employees of such companies will need to work from home. Anyone who must work onsite to maintain “Essential Infrastructure” for the community or to maintain “Minimum Basic Operations” as described in the Order may continue to work in the workplace so long as they are maintaining social distancing.

Surrender. One large Tupperware container to hold them all. And a tray or workbench to dump it on to find those 1/4-20 bolts.

If you own a Japanese bike or other vehicle, you really should separate the Standard from the Metric, especially the Phillips from the JIS.

LLOL!





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

When I moved here a couple of years ago, my hardware drawers made the move smoothly until I took them out of the car. I finally had time to sort through those drawers and get things organized. I do, however, have the bags of miscellaneous screws, nuts, and bolts that could be sorted.

I was able to clear off a work table and put a spotlight above it to make the task easier. Those other bags MIGHT get my attention soon.
