Had 2 phone calls in one day asking us to check our modem speed for our spark modem-they used my maiden name from 11 years ago & we are not with Spark any longer either so I knew it was a scam and hung up. There is a page on the Spark website confirming that people ringing to check a modem speed is a scam as well as others. I just wanted to post this so people know they are doing the rounds.
KEEP SAFE EVERYBODY.
ADHERE TO THE WARNINGS AND ADVICE GIVEN.

NOT ENOUGH PEOPLE ARE PROTECTING THEMSELVES.
THIS VIRUS IS NOT AN ORDINARY VIRUS, MANY DEATHS PROVE THIS.
KEEP SAFE EVERYBODY!!!
We have all heard the Govt saying, "there is no shortage of food & there is no price gouging." however I can't say I'm seeing evidence to support either statement as every time I got to the store, something is marked up higher than what it was before The Lockdown and there are always rows of empty shelves.
In regards to that, I notice a lot of the time the healthier options of food are often cleaned out the fastest. Such as alternative baking goods like almond flour and non-sugar sweeteners. I wonder if those who have specific dietary needs or diseases that prevent them from having all the always readily available sugary and carb loaded stuff that is seemingly always stocked, are getting what they need.
I'd like to hear back if you have a special dietary need, not just a preference. And if you are finding it in stock or if it is always, or often gone when you get there.
Is this a real problem, should the government look at a special shopping window similar to what "essential workers" just got? So that those in real need have the opportunity before those who don't do.
I'd also like to know for those of us who do go out to the shops, if something isn't there, are you going back again and again in the hopes to find it?
What are y'all's thoughts on this?
