“Covid-19 Curve” Projections

California’s Early Lock Down Will No Doubt Help Greatly This web site has predictions for every state and the US as far as when their “curve” will peak: https://covid19.healthdata.org/projections There is one part of this projection that I am no so sure of – while California had the first “lock down” in the country – and that being right here in the SF Bay…

Three Weeks in Lockdown

Source – Washington Post – https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2020/04/01/lockdown-coronavirus-california-data/ I have just completed my third week at home. On Friday, March 13, I took that day off and was at home. I’ve been home ever since – I heard about the coming lock down over that weekend – and just decided to stay at home.

Preparing For K9AY Loop Redux

Nostalgia – K9AY Loops! I mowed the grassy front and back 40 with: The Cub Cadet String Mower – best mower ever! I live in a “semi rural” suburb.

CKFR – Kelowna, British Colombia and COVID-19 in Canada

Tonight I am Hearing a CBC Station from British Colombia Growing up in Northern NJ, I used to love listening to Radio Canada International – it was better than most shortwave radio stations. Tonight – for some reason, either the skip is skipping over KAGO in Klamath Falls – or maybe their power is set lower than normal. CBC station CKFR’s programming is excellent…
