Shelter In Place: Day 14

2 months ago, for day 90 by Yorick Phoenix πŸ†

Rolls of toilet paper left: 6 Two weeks already, it seems longer yet, I get the feeling we are only at the start. Looks like we’ll doing this until the end of April, at least, probably longer. It’s going to be an odd summer. Everything is now closed until...


Shelter In Place: Day 13

2 months ago, for day 89 by Yorick Phoenix πŸ†

We have less than eighteen years to fix this, eighteen years I say. If we don't, we'll wake up on Tuesday 19th January 2038 and have a really big problem on our hands.


Shelter In Place: Day 12

2 months ago, for day 88 by Yorick Phoenix πŸ†

Rolls of toilet paper left: 6 I made the mistake of going out shopping to get a few basic supplies. Things are getting back to normal with almost everything, except toilet paper/paper towels. The shelves are empty. Nevertheless, even if I run out I have backup plans. I may...


Shelter In Place: Day 11

Rolls of toilet paper left: 6 Trips outside: 3. I went to collect the mail. I went to fix one of the outside surveillance cameras that had been knocked by a bird, cat, possum, squirrel etc and the third time was to cut some roses from the garden a...


Shelter In Place: Day 9

2 months ago, for day 85 by Yorick Phoenix πŸ†

Rolls of toilet paper left: 7 Another day, more infections, more deaths, the new normal. As always I check the US map which you can find here. 95% increase in NY since Sunday. Does more testing provide higher numbers, of course it does? Do higher numbers mean more deaths,...

Rolls of toilet paper left: 8 Of late many of my posts have been written in bed using an external Bluetooth keyboard and my iPad. You can spot these ones as the grammar probably sucks. On my MacBook I have grammarly, on my iPad I do not. Yes I...

Rolls of toilet paper left: 9 β€”- β€œ We will be restoring normality as soon as we are sure what is normal anyway. Thank you.” β€” Trillian, Hitch-Hikers Guide To The Galaxy Things are quiet, things are changing. Some things are getting back to normal - like there being food...


Shelter In Place: Day 5

2 months ago, for day 81 by Yorick Phoenix πŸ†

Rolls of toilet paper left: 9 No, I'm not hoarding them. I buy in packs of 16 or 20 rolls when I get down to the last 3 or so and got some a few weeks ago. It'll be interesting to see how long it lasts. The weekend feels...

Is this a sore throat? Is this just allergies?


Shelter In Place: Day 2

2 months ago, for day 78 by Yorick Phoenix πŸ†

Another normal’ish day, if you can call this normal. Well it’s the new normal it seems. I work at home so nothing too different there. Things are changing in our industry (heathcare) so we are doing our best to support our customers changing needs. Apple announced a new iPad Pro....
