If you have central air, study the air circulation patterns in your rooms....

so that when there's multiple people around, you can avoid return air bringing virus toward you. Just locate your air discharge vents (D) and your return air suction portals (R) and envision air traveling from D-to-R. In many older homes, there's only a large central return air port in a common hallway.

Next (assuming you have central air), consider purchasing a HEPA filter for your system to replace the standard fiberglass filter. A HEPA AC system filter can trap virus particles and dust before they can get to your condenser coil. Virus particles will mostly pass through a standard filter and can collect on the air conditioner's condenser coil and remain there in a viable state for quite some time because the coil is chilled. A portion of those particles can then be re-entrained into the feed air as the system cycles and therefore spread virus throughout the home.

I recommend 3M Filtrete Ultra Allergen Air Filters - 1500 (Purple) which run around $25 each, although you can find generic equivalents for around $10 each. Regardless of what you consider buying for your home, make sure the filter(s) are rated and tested for capture of virus particles. Not all so-called HEPA filters are necessarily capable of capturing a high percentage of viruses. COVID-19 particles are reported to range approximately in size between 0.05 and 0.15 microns diameter.

If you're like me and use window AC units, consider a portable HEPA unit for the room or rooms you occupy most. Holmes, Honeywell and several other companies make those but always consider replacement filter costs and read lots of reviews.

Dispersion of certain essential oil blends via an atomizer is another way to reduce viruses in you home's air.

Thanks for posting and I hope this helps!.........

Another foxy lady with a shoe fetish......

Fox found with impressive shoe collection in Berlin

A fox in a leafy suburb of Berlin has been getting into the spirit of summer - by collecting flip flops.

For weeks residents of Zehlendorf were baffled that a thief was stealing their flip flops and sports shoes from their gardens at night.

Finally a man spotted the culprit on a patch of wasteland, "in flagrante, carrying two blue flip flops in its mouth", the daily Tagesspiegel reports. The fox had a hoard of over 100 shoes, but not the man's missing running shoe.

The man had suspected it might be a fox after raising the matter on a neighbourhood watch website and getting complaints from other locals about a missing pair of shoes, or one missing shoe.

Tagesspiegel editor Felix Hackenbruch posted photos of the evidence on Twitter......
(sorry, I don't speak German. Perhaps someone can interpret)


Caught in the act of shoe shopping.....

The hoard.....


Best motivational speech I've heard all year....
