    Strange time these. We are in a world-wide Pandemic and most of us have been told to stay put in your homes. So just what and how does a person do this?

    I spent the day doing yard work in the backyard as it was sunny and the lawn has gone untouched for the last four or five months. It was a good work out, the yard looks good and I have burned up one day of basically being held hostage in my own home....

    Any ideas as to how to fart around for the coming months? I'm running out of ideas already and so is the TP.

    Like yourself Philip, I've been farting around, clearing the garden, too wet to start mowing the grass. Yesterday I met a couple of friends in our local park for a couple of hours (driving to the venue in our own cars of course), we sat down and painted/drew what we saw, I think we'll be doing that again.

    We were all about 10m apart, shown in the last picture. The first is by a professional artist who painted the second artist who was drawing me. The third, of the bridge, is mine. I found out that drawing with watercolour pencils when theres drizzle in the air doesn't work very well. And using an eraser is a no,no as you can quickly make holes in the paper. You've got to find something to do where you can talk to people at a safe distance

    I spent saturday doing a surgical transplant: a pair of good pockets from an old and torn pair of Levi's took the place of a couple of pierced (correct?) pockets in a good pair of jeans, from the inside, they look... a shit, but with the trousers on, I can't tell the difference between before and after, so I did the job.
    Sunday, to the local shop to buy all the water I needed for say 30 pints of belgian abbey type beer, after that, I started to clean my home, which was (still is) a pigsty.
    Unfortunately, from monday, back to work, but gladly, I'm the only one in office, and I go there on foot, half an hour more or less, just to avoid socializing (not a typical italian).
    Every day half an hour on my balcony, to see some sunlight, than at least half an hour in the bath tub in warm water reading some s.f., plus some german language studying, then I have a s.f. plastic model that's waiting, Turtledove's third book of "Colonization", a couple of s.f. books, lots of movies... and my flat is still covered in dust
    Then, there are you guys, keeping me company

    I get out every day, either walking or bicycle. Have 11 books on my to-read stack and 3 more on order. Play the sax and my one hour practice revives me. EVERY morning I meditate and then do a complete stretching routine. Also play the Native American style flute and this has a calming effect. I email, text and Facebook message a big circle of friends. Stay in touch with loved ones . . . . it's therapeutic.

    I have started reading an Encyclopedia of Motorcycles that covers 2500 brands manufactured since the late 1800's, along with building a plastic model of the Osprey, working in my backyard, going hiking in the local county park and riding my motorcycles to buy a few groceries at a time. Our hardware stores are also open, so I can also ride there to pick up some random bolts. Our stay-in-your-home regulations have a lot of loopholes in them.

    I am putting together a new Rad Bike E-bike for my wife. We have many miles of paved biking/ hiking roads here . We will be riding out in the sunshine and getting some air while keeping away from the crowd.

    I was out hiking at the county park located a mile from my home. The place was pretty busy with hikers and joggers. Unfortunately, the bathrooms were closed and there were signs at the entry to every trail warning of recent mountain lion sightings.

    In related news, California State parks are no longer permitting camping due to the virus outbreak. See the attached news article. Hiking trails will be open, but with no bathrooms available the bears will have to shit in the woods.

    Filed my federal and state income tax returns today. For the first time in over 20 years I'm actually getting money back from both.

    The sun was out so I tanned a bit to get some vitamin D that is rare in Oregon in the wintertime. Then did some yard work and fixed a gate that needed mending. The stay at home thing really didn't change much now that I'm retired. People are out and about but, maybe not as much as before. It is the cafes, Breweries and Hotels that are getting hit hard. I know I'm lucky at this point. Hoping for the best for everyone.

    Check out the cost of a Kennedy Class Aircraft Carrier and how many the Navy has. Then add your tax return. How is this all going to add up? Oh, and....

    My wife and I did some Spring organizing and got the garage squared away from the winter mess. Sun was out but, it remained chilly all day. After dinner we took a two mile hike on the Hiking/biking trail ( empty) and have settled in with the two French Bulldogs and an ancient but, active Jack Russell. It amazes me that the visitors downtown were acting like nothing was going on and everything was normal. The same happened at the coast on the beaches. The Locals were not happy about all the traffic and people acting like things were just fine and dandy. Many of the people in places like Cannon Beach are older and none of this is a good thing.

    Yes, it seems like that although I should be used to it. I've been playing Microsoft Free cell for quite a while and now up to level 75 (93% win, keeps the mind working, forward planning), since I started playing, the occasional gaming ads between batches have ramped up to a pace that they're almost bombarding me everytime I complete one game and try to start another.
    Time to call it a day - or use another computer and start again. Twiddling your thumbs and kicking your heels are at least some form of physical exercise I need to add butt clenching to my rota.

    I'm not sure the younger generation and many of the older folks have got it yet. My. grandson invited his friend over for the weekend, he drove over 300mls to get there then dumped him on his mother as he hadn't to room to put him up! Are they stupid? I can't say anything as I'll be called a miserable old git. Luckily I live in the country where visitors are rare so it's not difficult to self-isolate, however my wife still has to do shopping when required, so there's no way you can be cocooned for months.
    It's a lovely day out there - biking weather, I just wish............. Perhaps I should clean the bike instead, I don't do it often

    pFriem a popular brewery in Hood River stopped serving to-go meals and beers due to the fact there were so many out and about near the beach eating in the area. I hear you on the young people they just don't get or more likely just don't care.

    I hear that U.S. whisky distillers are now producing alcohol hand sanitizer. That sounds like a good way to turn lemons into lemonade.

    Marin County, north of San Francisco, just closed down all of their beaches, city parks, county parks, hiking trails and national parks. They said that too many people visited them yesterday and the residents didn't like it. They believe that the visitors would bring the virus into their neighborhoods. So in response, the County closed down all recreational areas to keep everyone safe. The County sheriff said that the virus was not a reason for people to take a vacation and they need to just stay home. (And eat snacks while watching TV? )

    The Not-in-My-Backyard wooded suburb communities in the San Francisco Bay Area, where homes cost millions of dollars, are starting to rebel against less-important people from more crowded cities visiting their landscaped neighborhoods, where the beaches and woods are located. Now even lowly Lake County, located well north of San Fransisco, has closed their beaches and popular recreational areas to the car-driving public. Even the mayor of San Carlos, a small city south of San Francisco, is complaining that too many people are walking around their landscaped downtown (mostly closed) business district. It is starting to feel like a battle between the haves and have-nots - and we are just a week into the virus crackdown.

    What did they expect the public to do on a pleasant weekend after being cooped up in their homes all week? Stay there and not go for a drive to the beach? Speaking of beaches, there is now a push by some State legislators to close all public beaches (and there are a lot of them) in California in an effort to encourage everyone (who doesn't live near a beach) to stay in their dense city housing.

    The complaints are that there are too many cars on the roads and too many people on the trails and beaches, apparently getting too close to each other. There are even complaints about too many people riding bicycles and not staying six feet from each other. When will it end? Will the cops be ordered to crack down or will the population arise and demand that the "shelter-in-place" regulations be lifted and let people go back to living their lives and let the virus be dammed? After all, we are in a democracy and the masses are supposed to get whatever they want.

    I've completed Day 6, my neighbour rung the bell at teatime, I opened the door and she was about to walk in as usual, when I said no, she looked a bit shocked. I told her as we are elderly we were told to stay away from everybody. The worst of it is - I've got a f**king thick head,runny nose and a sore throat - what a f**king time to get MAN FLU! But hey ho we've only another 11weeks to go?

    California's Governor has just announced that he will be closing the parking lots at all State parks and beaches. So if you want to go to a park or beach in California you will have to walk or bike there. That is going to put a lot of pressure on any other parks or open areas that remain open - until all recreational areas are shut down, too. So you can just stay at home, watch TV and chow down on snacks and soda.

    I have a long time friend in Ohio and he was gobsmacked at the super market at the number of very over weight people with grocery carts loaded to over flowing with Mountain Dew and Coke. Absolutely mad, mad, mad......

    If it is "you know what" it came on the wind because I've been locked down for a week now and distanced myself a week or two before it was made compulsory not to get too close to anybody. This cold has been floating around for seems like weeks and weeks, no cough and no fever, just a thick head and a bunged snotty nose. We all survive colds.

    Strange times ahead, I wish all of you to keep safe and well. And this may give me time to discover where WildWilly hides his vast store of jokes which so far has eluded me.
