Driving 600 miles for a haircut?

The temptation after seeing the Facebook post was too great for J Farr, a 28-year-old living in near isolation in his Olympia, Wash., apartment. An old friend from his hometown of Yuba City, north of Sacramento, had announced he had gotten a haircut.

“I immediately started making preparations,” said Farr, who before the coronavirus outbreak would get his hair cut every few weeks and, with no clear end in sight, had considered shaving his head.

There is even a thought that by rebreathing the virus’s they can penetrate into your brain.

      N95 mask are THE WORSE, ask any medical professional or anyone who wears a mask all day if they have headaches and foggy heads.

      Do you remember back to 1969, Woodstock, the year that the N3H2 flu was killing over 1 million in the USA? We partied on.
