Soup Time

 
I hope to make soup tomorrow. You never know how it will turn out, but I will do my best.

No Plans To Ride

The Coronavirus has certainly created its share of grim news stories.
 
A local family had a huge tragedy the other day while trying to get some fresh air by riding their bicycles on a local rural road.
 
They were all struck by the same car, killing one and injuring the other two very badly. 
 
I don't ride for this very reason. If I did, I would only go in a park or trail. Cars and bikes on the road are a bad combination.

No Call For Now

The Coronavirus has done something that even Congress couldn't do.
 
The daily robo calls I receive have just about stopped. My phone no longer rings off the hook. 
 
I expect them to resume once things get back to normal, whenever that is.

It's New York

It is so strange to see the streets of Manhattan so deserted when I watch the news. Subways are on a reduced schedule.

There isn't much happening there, although I'm sure the actual residents are getting out to shop for food and other necessities.
 
The city has 8.5 million people. It can't totally stop for those who live there. They are like every other city and town in America. People will go out no matter what.

Down To Zero

My Fitbit needs to be recharged every other day. Apparently, it shut down while I was sleeping last night because the battery got drained.
 
I had to restart it before it would even charge. It was also displaying the incorrect time.
 
Everything was back to normal once it got 100% charged.

NYC Gets Hit

The Coronavirus is starting to hit New York City very hard. It has almost 50% of all the cases in America. The next two weeks should tell the story.
 
There is tremendous pressure for people to get back to work before the economy totally collapses.
 
It will be a very fine line because this can't go on for months.

Tokyo 2021

The International Olympic Committee finally bowed to pressure and postponed the Tokyo Games until next year.
 
There was too much money at stake to cancel it outright. The advertisement revenue really drives this event.
 
Who knows what it will look like next year.

The Challenge of Vaccine

The news on the Coronavirus changes daily and by the hour. It has taken over the world's economy.
 
If they ever develop a vaccine, some people will have a reaction to it.
 
I know how that works after getting sick for almost three weeks in the aftermath of my flu shot.

Same Old Flu

Will we ever see another Coronavirus? I'm not sure on that. How bad will this get?
 
We only need to look at the regular flu to see that the CDC announced that 20,000 Americans died from it of the 34 million effected. They also had 400,000 hospital visits.
 
There is no great outrage over this. It happens every year. It's nothing new.
 
Nobody nows the end game for Coronavirus. We can only hope for the best.

No Wakes & Funerals

It's very unfortunate to see that the current situation has caused wakes and funerals to be postponed. Individuals and families will not be able to have the comfort and support from one another.
 
How long will any of this last? More cases are being reported as testing increases.

Where Do Computers Go?

I took a ride to Staples today to recycle my first computer from 1998 and a three-in-one printer from 2006. They have a great policy on taking back electronics except televisions.
 
I still have two more desktop computers to prepare for recycling. You can only buy for today. Things get outdated so fast.

The Great Impact

The coronavirus has certainly impacted the world's economy. Where are we headed with this? Nobody really knows.
 
This will be one of the biggest stories of this century. We can never go through this again as a nation and world.

Removing The Drive

I took the hard drive out of the first computer I bought in 1998. The  plan is to recycle the rest at Staples where they have a great program.
 
This computer was state of the art in its time. I paid extra money for additional RAM.
 
All of this stuff becomes obsolete eventually.

Whoever Thought

The coronavirus continues to evolve to one of the biggest stories in my lifetime.
 
How bad will it get and how long will it last? Nobody really knows.
 
The next 15 days will be very critical with so much shutting down.
 
This is so amazing right now.

The Purple Vegetable

I never heard of purple cauliflower until I saw a recipe for it today. The stores I go to don't appear to have it in stock.
 
On my next trip, I will have a much closer look. I think I would have seen it in the past.
