Friday Escape
Author: wickedpam    Date: 06/26/2020 13:01:11

Just a little tranquility to try to escape the mess we have to deal with daily.

Another Primary Blog
Author: BobR    Date: 06/24/2020 13:19:52

It's the Wednesday after an election (primaries in NC, KY, VA, and NY). This late in the season, the presidential primary is all but decided. That means the state races get more focus, which is probably a good thing. Normally, this would be the time where I'd be writing a blog about the winners and losers. However, this being 2020, things are a little different. With mail-in voting being so prevalent because of Coronavirus, we currently only have front-runners and "apparent" winners. This appears to be the new normal (for this year anyway), and we likely won't have confirmed winners for a few days.

America's Best General?
Author: TriSec    Date: 06/23/2020 12:29:48

Good Morning.

We've been thinking quite a bit about memorials to our past recently - some justified, most of them not. One person stands out among many.

Frolic Friday
Author: wickedpam    Date: 06/19/2020 12:54:51

We are three-fourths done with this marathon that has gone on for a millions miles. Four and a half months to go and things are looking pretty good. Just "DON'T GET HAPPY" yet. Things can change on a dime in politics lately.

Lets shake, rattle, and roll out some of the nervous energy this Friday with a dance party. I'll kick it off with someone we just lost last month. (Cause 2020 had to be even more of a nightmare.)

End of the Beginning
Author: BobR    Date: 06/17/2020 13:07:11

For the last week or two, the coverage of protests in the wake of the George Floyd murder has dominated the news. Between that and the daily tRump outrage, the "limited" number of news cycles has pushed coverage of the coronavirus pandemic to the back burner. Part of that is because the number of new cases in key areas (like NY and the DC area) are going down. People are getting a false sense of security and believing we are at the beginning of the end. In reality, we are only at the end of the beginning.

New York has been a success story. With New York City having 3 international airports and the highest density of people in the country, it was not exactly a shock that the disease spread like a wildfire. With close to 10,000 new cases per day at its peak, the state is now down to ~600 new cases per day, due to an aggressive quarantine approach.

Ask a Vet

Good Morning.

I'm going to try to leave some Covid-45 behind today. Reading some of today's headlines though - it sure seems like the ol' TARDIS has taken is back to the Cold War.
