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

Called the local health clinic to see how they were doing on masks. They said that they weren't running low, but any donations would be appreciated. I bought a big bag of N95s a few years back for emergencies. For a minute I thought "well if they don't need them then why wouldn't I keep them?" but ...

Re: The Expanse; Syfy Series

A fantastic show. Excellent production values, kick ass cast, intriguing science concepts that are not marred by too much 'junk science'.

Re: Headlight recommendations

After much painstaking reviews and feedback I settled on the Zebralight H600Fc. Great light. At first I thought the described interface would be a bit much but I like it.
I'll update when I get some usage on it.
