It's very quiet here in East London. Most people seem to ge obeying the lockdown rules. Orderly, spaced queues outside supermarkets etc. the panic buying seems at an end at least. It's very strange looking up at the empty sky's. No planes..

I've set myself a daily routine to keep boredom at bay. Early morning workout in the garden after breakfast, drum practice,
reading. Tomorrow I'm starting online French lessons, it's something I've always wanted to do.
I've set myself a rule of no tv or films till after evening meal... ( with wine of course ;) )

Getting into a routine is a good idea. I'm still working but I don't like doing all of my work from home. It's far too easy to be distracted, and I'd much rather read a book of my choosing or watch movies or TV than work. :D  Initially the schools I work for were staying open so my plan had been to go there a few times a week to work on stuff and use their fitness center.

There are four obituaries in today's New York Times. They take up all the editorial space on pages 26-27 of the print edition.

    Joe Diffie, Grammy-Winning Country Music Star, Dies at 61

    Mike Longo, Jazz Pianist, Composer and Educator, Dies at 83

    Alan Merrill, a Songwriter of ‘I Love Rock ’n’ Roll,’ Dies

    William Helmreich, Sociologist and a Walker in the City, Dies at 74

All died of the coronavirus.

The online Times says they are a part of a series about coronavirus victims, "Those we've lost." However, the print edition says nothing about that, and each person was prominent enough to rate a Times obit no matter how they died. They are the only four obits that ran today, so I thought that was a grim milestone of sorts.

Wow, God Bless the Dearly Departed.  🙏 May they Rest In Peace. 🙏

Today marks the last day of my commuting from home in Salem, New Hampshire to Medford, Massachusetts.  When I was informed I’d be getting a laptop I requested to still come in as were down to a skeleton crew anyway, so not difficult to practice “social distancing”. 

I’d rather continue to come in but it’s not my choice so I’ll have to suck it up like the others.  The downside is working from home will be limiting, but, c’est la vie. 

I’ll just “improvise, overcome and adapt” for as long as it takes. 

I truly, honestly and sincerely hope you are all doing well.  Take care and stay safe, everybody! 🙂

Chris Cuomo's experience with COVID-19 sounds brutal:

Chipping a tooth from shivering...  :o

Brian (Jed) glad to hear you're staying home now. This isn't anything to play around with.

Yes, I've been occasionally listening to Chris Cuomo's reporting on his own illness. It's brutal and chilling. His brother's daily briefings have become appointment television for me.

Prayers for Chris Cuomo 🙏🙏

Thank you, Matt.  Yes, agreed.  At least the weather is nice enough out to get out for fresh air occasionally.

My wife was complaining of a headache today, and then later said she had a fever. It went up over 100 and then before bed it was 99.4. So, yeah, I'm a little freaked out. I feel fine, except I'm taking Allegra everyday to combat allergies. Earlier in the day was the first time I actually felt a sense of happiness. This will be a really rough year but I work for MGM corporation and they were saying how the recent deals to sell a couple casinos had left them in unusually good position going into this, and I just felt like things would be okay. Needless to say after she mentioned having a fever, my good mood is shot. It does no good telling myself this is nothing, because a part of me just won't believe it. Anyhow, I'm not looking for attention, I just need to express myself, and I wouldn't want to tell family and worry them if it (hopefully!!!) turns out to be nothing. It's just another example of how on edge we all are. I'll check in tomorrow, hopefully to say, oops, false alarm!

Take care, Doug! I hope it will turn out to be a false alarm. No matter what, you can always come here and vent.

Hi everyone. Here in Brasil there not so many cases as the rest of the world. São Paulo is the more affected. Here in my city under 10 cases, the mayor has been very tight on the rules.
Staying at home never bothered me, I am used to do my things from here but not having the option of getting out and seeing the streets totally empty is so strange. :( 
Doug, I hope is nothing too much with your wife. KC I was so worried about you, please take care. Take care all of you.

What are you doing to keep busy?

What else? Books and movies :) I rewatched Firefox yesterday, I have always loved this movie.

My wife's fever went away by this morning. I'm affected by something and it feels like allergies, with that feeling in your throat like congestion, but even in the best of times I always worry about my lungs since I have mild COPD from those years when I smoked. But I do not have a fever. Strangely enough according to the thermometer my temperature is always low, 97-something degrees, and that's where it remains now. That's the most encouraging thing, no fever. I'll keep taking Allegra, and Mucinex has always helped in keeping my lungs clear. It has been pretty windy here and we've been walking the dog every day, so it would be no surprise if allergies are affecting me. I'm just glad my wife's fever went away. That was alarming. For now, I'm assuming this was a false alarm.

Great news about your wife Doug... I’ve felt rough these past few days but I don’t think it’s the virus. Just a cold and it seems to be passing now.

Way to go Aline.. Firefox 👍

Taken today during a break from work, just outside in the yard.  Happy Friday, hope you're all healthy, happy & safe.  Take care.

My brother has COVID! He has been feeling terrible for 10 days. He is a doctor and was treating COVID patients at the hospital and has all the symptoms. I talked to him today and he has lost 6 pounds in the past 10 days. Says he can't eat anything, has shortness of breath, a nasty cough, and chills keeping him up at night. He sounds terrible. I feel sad and worried for him! Of everyone in my life, I'm the closest to him, so he just has to be okay!

I am so sorry to hear that, AKA! It's even harder knowing there is no way you can be physically close. I hope he will recover quickly!

Oh man, I'm sorry AKA.  I have read too many stories about the doctors and nurses treating the ill and getting the virus. I hope he recovers quickly and completely. Keep us in the loop.
