But see, while this thread/topic SHOULDN'T be political, it sadly is.  That's the reality.

In sales, relationships matter. It's easy to conduct business over a Zoom; it's hard to develop relationships.

I don't think there's truly a substitute for F2F meetings as a whole. I think that things like Zoom might reduce the overall need to have F2F meetings, but won't eliminate it entirely.
I spent M-Th the past week in an AP summer workshop conducted via Zoom.  I didn't get 1/10 as much out of it as I do in a normal face-to-face workshop.

Nope, this is incorrect.  We can discuss public health policy without people interjecting their opinions of the political drivers for such policies.

And, since I'm back, that's exactly what will begin happening once agin.

We can discuss the coronavirus, current trends, current medical ideas, and other things here.

Anyone that feels the need to "enlighten" the rest of us with your opinion on political motivations behind decisions-- you can count on your posts being deleted.  

There are other threads and other forums for that.

You're welcome.

Oh, and hi!  Hope everyone's safe and okay.  My in-laws now have the Coronas.  So, yeah.  Good to be back.

They won't let me give blood anymore. The burnt orange color scares the hell out of the doctors.

so how are they doing

Seem to be okay, no breathing issues so far, their symptoms seem to be more GI-related.  Such a strange virus with varying forms of attack.

Thank you very much for asking though.  I'm fearful for them, for my wife and her family, for all of us.  I'm praying they make it through with as few problems as possible.

For reference my FIL is 80 and has diabetes, and my MIL is 82 with really no other underlying conditions other than her age of course.

Yeah, started feeling bad, several days later they finally told my wife and she insisted they get tested, they did, and tested positive for the Coronas.

They won't say for sure but based on the timeline I'm pretty sure it happened at church.

Did I mention several weeks ago that independent-minded old people are starting to get more ornery and less careful?  

I haven't yet told them how angry I am with them, that won't happen until they're better-- I hope and pray that I have the chance to give them a piece of my mind.

Yup, Austin.  My wife and I are both from Austin and our folks still live here as well, both in the same houses we grew up in.

Thoughts are with you and yours. I don't pray much, but I'll send one up for them.
