Hi all!  It is a crazy time and I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy. Here is a note/video I put on our FB, Friday. Would love to hear about some great things you know of happening with people around you and in your communities. Beautiful things can come out of the most difficult times.

Consuming enough plant foods mainly fruits, vegetables and herbs that contain antioxidants and vitamin C. As for herbs, dried parsley leaves and dried mixed herbs mixed with margarine butter and used as a spread on rice cakes along with pork/ pork and chicken luncheon meat. Something about the pig that seems to have a strong immune system to fight deadly bacteria and viruses.

To your point Barry, lately, I’ve also shifted my thinking toward potentially life-saving innovations in the wake of this Covid virus. I’ve already submitted one idea and am working on a few more.

Efforts in this regard are gaining momentum here in the US. Currently, Mattel is now using fabric that would otherwise be used for making Barbie clothes to mass-produce face masks for immediate distribution to first responders and healthcare professionals. They are also in the process of prototyping face shields. Other manufacturers are following suit to address this and other dire needs, such as Ford, Anheuser-Busch, and Mary Kay, etc.  Check out the full story here: https://www.lifeissues.org/2020/04/pandemic-bri...

Now might be a good time to dig deep, to see what our awesome community of thinkers, movers and shakers can conjure up. I’m personally thinking of ideas that are easy to manufacture and, therefore, fast to market.

Great thought Barry.

Blessings and everyone PLEASE stay safe!

I submitted one for the Coronavirus as well. I hope EN explores our new ideas. I believe mine would be flying off the shelves right now!

I just joined you guys by submitting my own COVID-19 related idea on Sat 4/4.  When did you guys submit your ideas?  Good to see that your idea is moving through the stages Saletta.  I was wondering if EN was actively reviewing ideas at this time.

All the best to you guys.  Stay safe and healthy.

I currently dont have an invention idea,but I do have a suggestion that EN should accept Corona virus invention ideas at a reduced rate or free. This virus is very dangerous and spreads so fast and easy. Any type products that help comfort and or heal people at this time is greatly needed!

Hi barry, not a bad idea about the free subs for COVID-19 related products to help spur ideas.  My submission actually was free because I used one of my free submission coupons.  You get 4 a year when you sign up for annual subscription.

@Mary.  I was thinking the same thing.  I bet that our submissions are very similar.  You have a 1 month head start on me.  Yours is probably already in production by now :)

Seriously though, I think now, more than ever, companies will be open to working in partnership to help fight this pandemic, and they will be making every effort to work at lightning speed.  That's a recipe for putting innovation on the front lines of this global battle.  I agree Mary, necessity being the mother of invention has never been more true.

Derrick, very funny, do you know how the EN employees are doing? I hope every one is healthy and safe. 

@Barry, great suggestion! EN members, may have a product solution to help keep the public safe. 

@Saletta, a few months ago, our product ideas would have been considered a niche product. Now consequently they have mass appeal.

BOO, yes I am still alive. Quite literally. Been a long and challenging handful of years health-wise but I am still kicking, walking and talking so there is that... Just wanted to say hi and share my own story...


I picked up a friend from the airport in Oakland 5 weeks ago from a week long business trip in Seattle working at few retirement communities and apparently there were some who tested positive where he went for work. Well, he came back sneezing and coughing and in the close proximity of the car on the way back I got something for sure. He had it bad for nearly 3 weeks. Took 4ish days to present itself in me and when it did I thought I had food poisoning because I couldn't get off the porcelain throne for 5 days and had a low grade fever, chills and sweats for as many. I slept like 18 hours a day, was lethargic and had two bowls of tomato soup in 5 days because I had zero appetite.

I didn't lose smell or taste (well, honestly because I didn't really eat during most of it I can't be sure) and I didn't thankfully have respiratory issues beyond my typical CHF coughing due to fluid in my lungs because my bad heart. Well, there was more coughing than usual but it was manageable. I am on two high doses of two different daily expectorants for that and I suppose that may have helped it not take hold if it was covid19. I am on a dosage of Vitamin D daily also and so they say Vit D helps within a certain range (I am in that range) with respiratory ailments and keeping them from taking hold in the nose where they apparently most often take root.

My doctor had kept in touch as I am on their high risk patient list and seems to think that it was covid and once the antibody testing makes its way to the VA I can get tested to see if it was indeed covid.

I was down for a 2 week and self quarantined for a total of 3 weeks. I won't find out for a little while if indeed it was covid but from all accounts it seems to reason that it was.

If it was, I am thankful that with my bad heart that it only affected me as much as it did because it could have been so much worse.

I cannot wait for that antibody test to show that I hopefully had it because I really don't want to see what it is like if that experience I had wasn't it...

Stay healthy everyone and be safe out there...

Welcome back Mr. Ed, your voice has been missed. I am very happy that you came through your experience relatively unscathed. I too have medical issues that put me at serious risk should I become infected. This is truly a scary time in all of our lives. Unfortunately, I see far too many people ignoring the social distancing protocols. It is so sad that so many people don't take this pandemic as seriously as they should.

Greetings Mr. Ed ... I'ts great to hear you're still alive and kicking. I actually was thinking of you not long ago and wondering how you were doing. Wonderful news to hear you pulled through the possible Covid-19 scare and good to have you report back in. I still have a few of the "Kris Kringle" flying licenses I got from you several years ago and gave out a couple this year to friends who had kids the right age to appreciate them. Stay safe and thanks for sharing your story!
