I was walking through the store today that had been largely picked clean. Fortunately, people were keeping discrete distances. I saw a lady trying to reach something off the top shelf; she replied, "No, Thank you, we need to keep our distance." I said, "Well, back up, and I will put the item on a shelf you can reach."She replied, "Thank you." and backed away. The point is, yes, we can shelter in place. But we still can help each other out! Hoarding is not helping the problem! Did it occur to these hoarders that they may be depriving good friends and perhaps even family? "Come on now, come on, people now shine on your Brother!

I visited Eyam, the village that tried to contain the spread of the Black Death by isolation of the whole village. So many died but they helped to prevent the spread locally. A village of heroes, an amazing place. The vicar banned gatherings and the bodies were buried in people’s gardens to avoid church crowds. Even now homeowners turn them up when building extensions.

Jaminator, Thank You for helping her. We need more people like that in the world! Hoarders and Rioters taking everything. Taking things they dont even need that other people could use. Yes thank you

People need to learn to prepare way in advance for situations like this and then there would be no issues having what you need. It’s not hoarding when you prepare. Every week when you make your grocery store trip get a little extra put it aside over time you could be like me and have what you need for about a year or so and never need to go to the grocery store at the last minute.

Yvonne Benn, I visited Eyam several times. The well dressings are beautiful. Google for more information. The type of well dressing done there is a Derbyshire custom.
