Default Donít relax, but copper doorknobs are nice

Dear everyone,
First, this mustnít lead anyone to just relax and not sterilize your doorknobs and whatever. Be paranoid. Always! But though viruses and bacteria are different, copper vessels and brass doorknobs are better to possess than chrome, glass, etc., and have been known to be so for millenia. Yep. Hereís one article. There are others to back it up. You can forward it around.
Best, Allen

Hi, I should mention that when doing trash and recycling chores, picking up mail in our lobby or groceries from the outdoors drop-off table, I try as much as possible (easiest with the trash and recycling) to use only the fingertips of my left hand for all outside doorknobs and bin handles. Right hand fingertips for the ďcleanĒ wastebaskets, ďcleanĒ etceteras. Everything else is forearm and elbow use. Takes a little thought, but I know what my hands have touched.

Allen

Both videos are very humorous, especially the man dance in the first. A small point missed by the first is that bacteria are not viruses. But who cares, and who reads small print? Sauve qui peut, then.

The first one is from a BBC comedy that predates Covid, Allen. I just thought it apropos. And very funny.

Oh, Mark, I figured that out. I was overreacting to a something quite unrelated, off-board, and local that really pissed me off. I want to apologize for letting the splash of someoneís simultaneous provocation here in this tiny town get into my reply. You did good. You did well. Your post was princely. Itís hilarious. And appreciated. Letís all watch it again. And once more next week. I really liked it. In fact, itís a pretty good parody of me. Go Mark!
