‘He Who Would Valiant Be’

Now they want us not to go grocery-shopping. What are we supposed to do for food?

Antidote: He Who Would Valiant Be, by John Bunyan, also known and loved as To Be a Pilgrim–complete with peaceful train ride over the North York Moors on the Goathland Railroad (steam locomotive and all).

    Many restaurant food suppliers are proving delivery and pick ups of food boxes, from $25 to hundreds of dollars, with no delivery charge under a certain amount. It’s probably the best food you can buy. Much better than the junk in supermarkets. Best of all, they are not gouging their prices which are so reasonable I would hope they’d continue serving the public long after the WuFlu is done.

      We are out of food this morning, and if they turn me away from the supermarket–well, then what?

        Don’t worry. Call a few food distributors in your area to find which ones are willing to deliver some food at a fair price, with negotiable delivery charges. They’re doing that in my city and I’m so excited about it, even though I’m on a budget. My concern is how you let your food supply dwindle so low under the circumstances. I understand that the media is saying NJ is one of the hardest hit states and that its lockdown is also one of the hardest. That creates unsustainable stress on everybody. If there’s anything i can do, anything at all, please, tell me. PS: In my city, if we call before a certain time we can get same day delivery; and by another time, delivery the next morning.

          We live in an apartment, we have only one refrigerator and very limited storage space–of course we go to the supermarket. Of course we run out of food.

          As far as I can see, New Jersey’s condition has been greatly exaggerated. It’s bad enough, and we all want it to be over; but it’s hardly bodies piling up on the sidewalk.

          Thanks for your good wishes. There’s nothing I need to ask you for just now, but it’s good to know that I can.

    PPS: I wish I had a drone for times such as these.
