Though the Coronavirus may (or may not) have dissipated a bit, I have to say I have wondered that if all the doctors who have appeared on TV were assigned to hospital floors, would we have a shortage of doctors?. Just askin’.
Last week, a friend and I drove to the Lake Las Vegas area just to get out of the house and look around. Wow…we had read in the paper that Lake Las Vegas was welcoming more homebuilders, but the number of new homes was astounding. I can’t say that my friend and I wanted to move to the area; it still seemed rather away from the kinds of things we like, but the area is beautiful with lots of tidy landscapes and blooming flowers.
A favorite joke of the day from a friend: Did you hear about the drive-through casino? You drive up and give a guy at the window your money and then leave. (Nothing has changed.)
Thanks again, talented folks, for your online concerts, skits and cooking demos. Can’t wait to get back to applauding in person, but appreciate your efforts to elevate our spirits from a distance.
I’m old, so TV is a lesson in nostalgia for me. When Coronavirus updates get me down, I find myself switching lots of channels and watching things like The Dick Van Dyck Show, Friends, Cagney and Lacey and the Andy Griffith Show.
In my working career in Chicago, I spent 39 years with S&C Electric Company. S&C manufactures products for electric utilities. The company is filling needs for hospitals and other critical institutions especially in areas hit by tornadoes and other storms. S&C also has a company in Suzhou, China, and that company is back working after a shutdown related to the coronavirus pandemic.

And now….I have been wondering about online celebrities reading children’s stories. Seems to me, the nice thing about bedtime stories is that they come from Mom or Dad. To have the iPad on even as a youngster is falling asleep seems to me too much iPad. So I watched Dolly Parton read a story…and she sang a little song at the end. Yes, the storytelling was cute, and Mom or Dad probably enjoyed it, too. But I don’t think I will forget those Mamma Llama rhymes for weeks!
