Days sheltering in place: 75. Days to normality: 3 (maybe). Keyboarding: quick play on my iPad only. It rained today, very briefly and very heavily. I saw some kids outside get caught in the deluge, with no option other than soaked as they ran home. It's the kind of...


No Car

2 months ago, for day 150 by Yorick Phoenix 🏆

Days sheltering in place: 74. Days to normality: 4 (at least). Keyboarding: live rendition, with mild applause. The car purchase finally fell apart today. The dealer offered to cover the State of California $2,000 rebate if they rejected my claim - 99% chance I suspected - but was adamant...


No BEV

Days sheltering in place: 73. Days to normality: 5 (at least). Keyboarding: skipped. Today has been a crazy hectic day which culminated in a last minute e-mail telling the Mini USA Car Dealer that unless they can find a way to refund me $9,500 off the price of the...

That's Just Peanuts To Space

2 months ago, for day 146 by Yorick Phoenix 🏆

Days sheltering in place: 70. Days to normality: 8 (at least). Keyboarding: Just the once, briefly, but I did. In March 1978 I listened to an radio play written by an unknown - to me - author who I later discovered also wrote Dr Who scripts. This...


This Is Not A Drill

2 months ago, for day 145 by Yorick Phoenix 🏆

Days sheltering in place: 69. Days to normality: 9 (at least). Keyboarding: Practiced several times today. The keyboard practicing is going OK thanks to GarageBand on an iPad connected to my keyboard, this means that whenever I stroll by, I can stop and practice for a while. I'm still...
