  1. We have an insulated roofing material and a N/S orientation so we have shade on the patio deck starting around 9 am till the rest of the day. Is great for summer, though we haven't had much rain this summer we can watch it from our deck. Also built deck even with entry door so no steps to go up and down to go out to the patio. We think it keeps the rig cooler and also protects the RV roof.
  2. Yes, out of the 500+ lots in Juniper Ridge only about 60 are year round and many of those are park employees. The rest come up from the valley, (74 this year from Casa Grande, AZ alone), and several from California and Montana. The high season in Show Low is May through September, though October can be beautiful in the mountains. I did a Google search for "Deeded lots in the Phoenix Valley area of AZ" The east valley ie Apache Junction area is less expensive than Phoenix or Mesa.

  4. Each individual is different and what works for one may not work for another. Age, health, diversity of portfolio, comfort level of investing, access to information and your financial manager or broker while on the road are a few things that make the decision different for each individual. There have been pandemics in the past (the importance of learning history) and there will be more in the future. https://www.cdc.gov/flu/pandemic-resources/1918-pandemic-h1n1.html. This is temporary but we have to do our homework to predict who will make it through, who will not and what new pursuits will benefit from the conditions created by the pandemic. ie Video Conferencing ZOOM, Google Meet, SKYPE, Facebook Watch Parties etc. TeleMed is not for everyone but has certainly made our travels easier and our dr appointments safer. It may have a positive affect on health care possibility reducing costs and increasing preventative care??? I am on a 55+ RV Park HOA committee and we had our first ZOOM meeting yesterday. Naysayers that hadn't tried it before were impressed with the quality and sound in our somewhat remote area and saw a lot of potential for our seasonal community to keep working year round. Fortunately we have a plethora of information available via the Internet to compare opinions and find the route that works the best for each individual. We also have to remember that the members of the media are paid by the number of viewers and clicks not necessarily the veracity of their content and sorting through the maze makes us work harder to confirm the facts from reporters opinions and agendas. Further there are different criteria and standards of reporting the pandemic statistics from state to state even city to city further complicating the decision making process.

  7. SOURCE: https://kidshealth.org/en/parents/germs.html What Are Germs? The term "germs" refers to the microscopic bacteria, viruses, fungi, and protozoa that can cause disease. Washing hands well and often is the best way to prevent germs from leading to infections and sickness. What Are the Types of Germs? Bacteria Bacteria (bak-TEER-ee-uh) are tiny, single-celled organisms that get nutrients from their environments. In some cases, that environment is your child or some other living being. Some bacteria are good for our bodies — they help keep the digestive system in working order and keep harmful bacteria from moving in. Some bacteria are used to make medicines and vaccines. But bacteria can cause trouble too, as with cavities, urinary tract infections, ear infections, or strep throat. Antibiotics are used to treat bacterial infections. Viruses Viruses are even smaller than bacteria. They aren't even a full cell. They are simply genetic material (DNA or RNA) packaged inside of a protein coating. They need to use another cell's structures to reproduce. This means they can't survive unless they're living inside something else (such as a person, animal, or plant). Viruses can only live for a very short time outside other living cells. For example, viruses in infected body fluids left on surfaces like a doorknob or toilet seat can live there for a short time. They'll die quickly unless a live host comes along. When they've moved into someone's body, though, viruses spread easily and can make a person sick. Viruses cause minor sicknesses like colds, common illnesses like the flu, and very serious diseases like smallpox or HIV/AIDS. Antibiotics are not effective against viruses. Antiviral medicines have been developed against a small, select group of viruses. Fungi Fungi (FUN-guy) are multicelled, plant-like organisms. A fungus gets nutrition from plants, food, and animals in damp, warm environments. Many fungal infections, such as athlete's foot and yeast infections, are not dangerous in a healthy person. People with weak immune systems (from diseases like HIV or cancer), though, may get more serious fungal infections. Protozoa Protozoa (pro-toe-ZO-uh) are one-celled organisms, like bacteria. But they are bigger than bacteria and contain a nucleus and other cell structures, making them more like plant and animal cells. Protozoa love moisture. So intestinal infections and other diseases they cause, like amebiasis and giardiasis, often spread through contaminated water. Some protozoa are parasites. This means they need to live on or in another organism (like an animal or plant) to survive. For example, the protozoa that causes malaria grows inside red blood cells, eventually destroying them. Some protozoa are encapsulated in cysts, which help them live outside the human body and in harsh environments for long periods of time.

  8. Thinking long term with all this antibacterial hand sanitizer vs soap and water are we going to develop stronger bacterias as a result? https://www.cdc.gov/drugresistance/about.html Antibiotic resistance happens when germs like bacteria and fungi develop the ability to defeat the drugs designed to kill them. That means the germs are not killed and continue to grow. https://www.cdc.gov/drugresistance/biggest-threats.html 2019 AR Threats Report CDC’s Antibiotic Resistance Threats in the United States, 2019 (2019 AR Threats Report) includes the latest national death and infection estimates that underscore the continued threat of antibiotic resistance in the U.S. According to the report, more than 2.8 million antibiotic-resistant infections occur in the U.S. each year, and more than 35,000 people die as a result. In addition, 223,900 cases of Clostridioides difficile occurred in 2017 and at least 12,800 people died.

  15. I just received this email. Does this mean we have to call DirecTV every time we stop to get the local channels? or will we get Livingston, TX Channels everywhere we go? Has anyone else received this notification? Dear Regrettably, we must inform you of a new law that affects your programming. Until recently, the Satellite Television Extension and Localism Act Reauthorization (STELAR) Act authorized DIRECTV to provide you access to your out-of-market broadcast networks—ABC, CBS, NBC, CW, and/or FOX. Unfortunately, Congress has decided to not renew key provisions of this law. As a result, on June 1, 2020, we no longer will be able to provide you access to these out-of-market channels. These are not available anywhere else. However, this change does not affect access to your existing local network stations. If you’re paying for these channels, you’ll receive a credit within 1-2 billing cycles for this programming change. If you have any questions, please call us at 866.595.9429. Thank you for choosing DIRECTV.
