Good morning everyone.

Coffee, hot water for tea and a variety of cold sodas are ready to go.

Maybe a little rain in the AM then sunny later with temps in the low 60's.

Tom, thanks for keeping the bar stocked and the place warm.

Roland, glad you're feeling better.
We still have tea for you in the morning.

Mike, I figured if I didn't shower it would help others maintain their social distancing from me.

Thanks Karl.

Thanks Jerry.

Definitely feeling much better.
Spoke to my doctors brother yesterday. (We've all been friends since junior high.)
His brother told him the number of cases in our community exploded and the scene at the hospital was mayhem.
Said he actually felt scared.

Quarantining will continue with the exception of taking the dog for a walk if the sun comes out.

Stay healthy and hunkered down and have a great day.

Good morning from a strangely severely clear So. Wisconsin. 32f degrees now heading to 54
but with 15 mph winds. Rick thanks for starting the day for us and happy to read you are feeling
better.

The walk will happen before noon, I re-organized my modeling bench over the weekend and
will start to re-do my LED lights under my valances over the shelf layout. The realtor is coming
over to visit the new place and take pictures. We are listing the current living quarters and the next
one which is about 2 weeks from final paint.

Enjoy a safe day
TomO

Cold and windy in Mich with a dose of -blah- plenty to eat, a place to sleep and itís warm. The Dollís fanning herself and hyperventilating from the heat, me? 2 long sleeve shirts.

The local, once a newspaper, ďnewsĒ outlet listed 5 places, booze makers, that had hand sanitizers available. Named them but didnít give any addresses where theyíre located, a phone number for one and an e-mail for one. Sent the writer, get an F in Karlís Journalism 101, an email reminder her that one of the five W in that 100 level class is WHERE. Iíll see if she responds to Prof. Scrib.

Model stuff later.

Good morning everyone.

Coffee, hot water for tea and a variety of cold sodas are ready to go.

They haven't been very accurate lately but their latest guess is cloudy, with a high near 49.

Very quiet here.
Hope everyone is well.

Karl, journalism as we used to know it is dead.
Now it's editorializing and spin.

Tom, sounds like you're getting some things done.

Like Tom I'm getting some things done around the house that I've been putting off.
Maybe the sun will come out later and I can walk the dog.

Have a great day everyone.

Good morning,

Rick, thanks for coffee as always. Glad you are feeling much better.

Forecast is for 70F today and no rain, but it will be overcast all day. We need sun!

Yesterday was busy with delivery of a new fridge and the household to do list.

No plans for the day, just lots to do on the list.

Have fun and be safe,
Mike

Good morning, today will be a much better day for outside walking, highs in low 40ís but the winds dropping from
double digits sometimes to 30 to 6. Thanks Rick for moving this day forward and diet soda. When do you get cleared?

For the most part I agree with you and Karl. There are plenty of great journalists out there but they have been overwhelmed
by the incompence of so many others. A lot of paper ďnewspapersĒ are now IMO basically advertising.

Be safe
TomO

Morning everyone

Rick thanks for opening and the coffee.
Hope your feeling better?

Weather here in South Jersey cloudy/46. Later the same.

We have to get some groceries today and dog food.
That will be our venture to the outside world for the week.

Painting is just about done in the kitchen. Thank God.

Everyone have a wonderful day!!

A statement I often use, and totally agree with. Few know but my college education was directed toward that line of work, the photography side, a summer internship at the once award winning Flint Journal in the namesake City, changed that forever. One of my coworkers there was a Pulitzer Prize winner (Photo of Adlai Stevenson with a hole in the sole of his shoe) Bill Gallagher.

The final nail was going with a reporter to talk to the mother of a teenaged girl just found strangled to death in the park...still haunts me that we interfered with that woman at her most horrible time. I chose a profession in which my presence was a positive contribution to a situation rather than, often, a hinderance.

-30-


Here things are quiet, settling in to the third week of trying to stay in.

I did work on the layout itself yesterday for the first time in months. MAYbe more today.

Everyone be well.

Good morning everyone.

Coffee, hot water for tea and a variety of cold sodas are ready to go.

Maybe partly sunny, with a high near 54.

Finally a day without rain and I can get outside and get some things done there.
Should check on the motor because I'll need it soon.

Have a great day everyone.

40 and grey, has rained of and on the last 24+ hours. The lawn does look a tad bit greener, but too cold to do anything about it.

Made a tunnel portal on the 3D printer yesterday. Meets the 3' rule. Might put it in today, or not.

Rick, better I hope?

Good morning from the Central time zone of Wisconsin. It was severely clear earlier this morning but a few clouds floating by now. 3 mph wind, itís 48f degrees and the walk is planned for 30 minutes from now. April fools day and havenít seen a joke yet that even has made me crack a smile, but there is time yet.

Brother in law updated. He spent 61 days in the hospital with over 40 in the ICU and it will be a week in rehab on Friday when they will be sending him home. He can feed himself through the stomach tube, he has passed finally the swallow test meaning he can eat the baby food type of stuff. No visiting nurses or home health care specialists will be coming out to his house because of the pandemic. His wife just got out of 30 day booze rehab and is a mess. This should be interesting. His hospital didnít waste anytime for billing him what Medicare didnít pay. Over $110,000 which is because he told them no other health insurance which he does have. The youngest BIL is going to handle working that out but his co-pay may still be a doozy.

Enjoy your day, be safe
TomO
