Covid-19: Lock Down Week 7

The KY6R Ham Shack, Music Studio and Home Office – there’s no place like Home I have finally gotten to the point where I love this Lock Down thing. There is really nothing that I miss – although – maybe lifting weights at the gym. But even that – riding my bike again like I used to – almost every day of the week…

Shelter(ed) From The Storm

Sheltered in the Sunny Living Room I’m not having any problem whatsoever with this shelter in place order. In fact, it reminds me of the Dylan song “Shelter From The Storm”. Growing up in NJ, and then living in PA and NY, we were pretty well home bound during the full months of January and February, and we have on occasion had years here…

Covid-19: Lock Down Week 6

We have turned the corner on this first wave – and now would be the WORST time to re-open business We can all be proud of our efforts – and very thankful to our health care workers and custodians who keep us alive and healthy – as much as they can. Of course, everyone practicing social distancing and staying at home are part of…

Covid-19: Week 5 on Lockdown

California has Flattened the Curve – even better than I had expected Its the last day of the 5th week that I have been home. I am sure this is going to go on a lot longer than anyone had expected – or what anyone wants. It will drive those who are impatient crazy. I see it as “My WWII” – its world wide…

Community Spirit and Rebirth

We Truly Are All in this Together One thing that I have experienced lately (more than any other time since my family moved to California in 1979) is a sense of community. I don’t blame anyone – we all have or had young families and have been crazy busy. But this Covid-19 Pandemic has interrupted that. It has forced us all to feel lucky…

The Lincoln Project

Kudos to The Lincoln Project The truth is, I hate politics and despise most politicians. I feel they are about the same level as a used car salesman – like the one portrayed in a great Twilight Zone episode. Enter The Lincoln Project. https://lincolnproject.us/ I don’t think I had written any political rants before the 2016 election. I usually delete my rants a day…

Covid-19 at Four Weeks

Lake Pend Oreille, Idaho – R. Holoch At the end of today, we will have been locked down for a month. I now am riding my bike six days a week – something I haven’t done in years. I am also playing my guitar and mandolin almost daily. I turn on the radio daily, but I’m not very excited about ham radio these days….

Hell Week

Zombie – R. Holoch We are in the week or two of what has been projected to be the worst of Covid-19 in the US. Today, Wuhan was re-opened for business. The interesting thing was seeing how quickly people gathered in public places. The models vary, but we will no doubt follow Wuhan and China with this problem. I’m guessing that means we will…

New California Covid-19 Peak Curve Update

Thank you Governor Newsom for having the guts to be the first in the US to “shelter in place” The Governors in the US who had the presence of mind to lock down their state – and listen to the experts – while our stable genius was stroking his massive ego. The curve is flattening, and the peak date is now a week sooner…
