  • Handling The Quarantine

    Great suggestions. Listening to music, taking virtual guitar lessons (and practicing) and working out form the staple of each day. Along with a smattering of virtual training sessions with my clients.

    Oh and binge watching Homeland. Up to season 3, episode 4.
    From meditation to learning new skills, there are a number ways to help cope with cabin fever.

          Into week 2 now & week 4 for the wife. I've play graded & catalogued about another 50 albums into Discogs so far. Spring cleaning started. Baked banana bread yesterday. Wife & I are enjoying our time together. Must not be fun if you don't enjoy spending time with the significant other

          Burned through 2 seasons of Jack Ryan on Amazon Prime last week & watched a couple of Netflix movies. The couple of times we've gone out it's mostly a ghost town other than Costco.

          The Costco social distancing lineup a few days ago.

                You got that right. A cyclist's worse nightmare. I never realized how many crazy drivers were on the road until I retired and started riding more. (I was probably one of them too!). Very bright daytime running lights are a requirement if you don't want to become a hood ornament.

              My routine has hardly changed at all. I just hit Target and Publix on their "over 60 years of age" mornings now. And my favorite butcher for prime ribeyes.

                Taking my Goldendoodle to the dog park everyday, drugs, music, binge watching Amazon Prime and re-doing my DIY interconnects to make them look prettier.
                Amazon now carries the same fancy sleeving the high-end OEM's use.
