No Plans To Ride
11:21 pm edt
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.
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
1:50 pm edt
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
11:19 pm edt
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
2:07 pm edt
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
7:39 pm edt
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.

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
9:25 pm edt
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
11:47 pm edt
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
9:33 pm edt
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?
10:47 pm edt
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.
still have two more desktop computers to prepare for recycling. You can only buy for today. Things get outdated so fast.

The Great Impact
11:39 pm edt
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
11:38 pm edt
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.

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
1:50 pm edt
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.
