Katherine Ross:
Let's talk about you Jim. As I just said, it's week three for many Americans staying at home. Of course, we know that you're, you're going into the studio every day and I want to check in on your social distancing. How are you doing? How's the world, since a lot of us are still at home? How's everything going?

Jim Cramer:
I find it pretty depressing. My day starts with either a text or a FaceTime with my daughter in Madrid who can't go out, third week. It's truly become wearing on her. She's a teacher, teaches English in Madrid. Then I check in with my daughter who's supposed to be trying to finish her Parsons degree for fashion and business. She lives in the Village. They can't seem to get it today. Classes start again, but it's to this part of her course is sewing and so obviously sewing doesn't really work with Zoom. My wife is in Quogue, Long Island with Will and Charlotte, my stepson and daughter and they're able to enjoy themselves a little more. Me, I stay home. I studied all day yesterday. I didn't see anybody. If have contact other than through online. I studied the companies that I care about today. I studied Avid. I studied CloudFlare and just try to get a line on what's going on with oil.

Jim Cramer:
Try to get a line on what's going on with the companies that are stay-at-home. One Saturday I was trying to get into a series Outlier, Outsider, didn't work. Almost finished the Institute, but the next book that I'm reading is Barbarosa, which is about the invasion of Russia by the Germans. Then after that I'm trying to get some more Stephen King but it was, there's no sports. I watched the President's press conference. I was deeply disappointed because he had a guest of mine on Friday. [inaudible 00:09:57] from Owens and Minor and the guest said, "Dave, look, it's hard to keep up when a hospital orders 200,000 but it's been over 20,000 masks." And the president immediately felt that that was, that meant that the hospital was hoarding them or doing something else with them.

Jim Cramer:
He mentioned that was perhaps criminal and that was a complete lack of understanding of what which [inaudible 00:10:20] of Owens and Minor was saying, which is that the system is being overwhelmed by mask orders. I was happy to see that Dr. Fauci prevailed on when the economy's going to open, managed to talk the president out of the April 12th deadline. But these are hard days and they're just hard days. I mean I don't talk to anyone. I don't see anybody. A box comes. I leave it outside for two days. I just read a lot about COVID and then I came to work and worry about the drivers, the driver, does he have it? I wore a mask to work. Does this go on for months? Does it go on for months? If it goes on for months, I'm going to have to redo my routine because it's just too depressing. 

Katherine Ross:
Well Jim, I hope that you're staying safe.

Jim Cramer:
Well, I'm staying safe but not mentally. Just staying safe
