Re: Current Civil Unrest

You can add Indianapolis to the list of cities with protests. Yesterday over a thousand protesters peacefully demonstrated. When they didn’t disperse by 11pm the police dispersed them with tear gas. Tonight the news coverage has over three thousand protested peacefully until police fired tear gas at...

Re: Sunburn COMMENT Thread

That was a beautiful launch of the Dragon spaceship by that powerful Falcon rocket! American rocket launching American astronauts from American soil. I watched it on the internet and even on my laptop screen it was impressive. I have seen one space launch in person, in '98, when they sent Glenn back...

Re: Sunburn COMMENT Thread

Still reading book two of the fantastic Chernyi series. But still thinking about Sunburn. The current chapter ends with: “So, you wish to continue to the cave of the Rangers?" "Lead on, I follow".” And I keep thinking about what the cave of the Rangers will be like. There will be more metal maps, ma...

Re: Sunburn COMMENT Thread

Would love to see Chapter Six!

I decided to read some of your other stuff while I’m waiting. Yesterday I got done reading First Strike!. Now I’m reading Going Home. It looks like a terrific series.

Still, reading Sunburn’s Chapter Six would be nice.

Re: "Daily COVID-19 SITREP In Your Area"

Went to a Menard's this morning in central Indiana. Arrived at 8:45 am on a Sunday, hoping for low shopper numbers. This was my first big box store visit in many weeks. The parking lot was already 40% full. Big sign at entrance said everyone had to wear a mask and that they were selling masks at the...

Why do some countries have very few COVID-19 serious illnesses and deaths??

Some countries have drastically few COVID-19 hospitalizations and deaths. Is it geography, temperature, genetic differences, a higher percentage of younger citizens, early lockdowns, or, so far, is it just luck? This free article deftly delineates differing depths of deaths. https://www.nytimes.com/...

Re: Keeping Busy, Isolation/lockdown projects

Last week my kid found a very large above-ground swimming pool kit that I bought at an end of season sale and stashed in the garage. It ain’t exactly hot here in east central Indiana but he somehow convinced me to help him set it up. It was a nice project for us to work on together. Yesterday it hi...

This week's supply run: Left early for the super Kroger on the eastside of Indianapolis, arrived at 7am, old people only store hours are 7-8am. There was no TP, no yeast, and I bought the last package of steaks, and they aren't even a known to me cut. But it was the last package of anything they had...

Re: Stocking up on food while you can.

Its a tough time to stock up on food. There are already a lot of shortages. You are risking additional exposure with every extra minute you spend in a store and with every extra store visit you make. So bear that in mind when deciding to stock up now. Sugar is a great long storage item because in a ...

Re: Is COVID-19 Leading to More Gardening?

I heard a news report this morning that ethanol plants across the US may close due to the drop in oil prices. This was predicted to lead to a drop in corn prices. That would be bad for farmers who are already struggling. So, at least we won’t see a shortage in field corn.

I think I will try putting 1K of it in a 529 college savings plan for my kid. Indiana gives a 20% tax credit each year for up to the first 1K deposited.

Today's posted numbers for Indiana (this official site only updates once per day using stats as of midnight the day before) Yesterday was a dark day, as, sadly, we had 14 additional deaths, by far the biggest jump in daily deaths so far.
