Enjoying Zsuzsa's Lilacs
Tuesday, May 12, 2020

Enjoying Zsuzsa's lilacs One of the benefits of being in lockdown is that I (Nancy) am required to take my walks close to home, so I walk around our large block a few times to get my steps in.  That means that if any of the neighbors are outside, I am able to wave, say hi or chat for a few m... .. read more..

Is There Another way?
Saturday, May 16, 2020

It strikes me that there are pretty much two basic arguments about lockdowns around the world.
