Domestic Engineering- The 'Man-Sized' Load

Some of you I realize, have been staying home far more than usual in the last few months. This has led to you either doing, or at least attempting, more domestic tasks than usual. Sheer boredom has led you to say things like, “I’ll do the dusting today,” or “I’ll make the bed,” and ask […]

I think I’m having a reaction to Phase 3. I might just be having a reaction to what appears to be happening in Phase 2 and therefore I am applying it to Phase 3 but I’m definitely having some kind of a reaction. Our area, relative to the rest of the world, has seen little […]

The one thing about a ‘global pandemic’, is that it is global. Almost every country, on every continent, has been drastically changed by COVID-19. Even the few countries that chose to ignore the whole flu-thing were effectively quarantined by their neighboring countries. So, no country got away scot-free. This of course, includes the Dominican Republic. […]

Just A Theory

A theory is an idea. It stops being a theory once it has been proven or disproven. Developing a theory is not all that hard, any idiot can come up with a theory, my neighbour does it all the time. I dread the day when some scientist describes some medical discovery as a ‘disinfectant for […]

Adapting

We are all making changes to the way we do things and lifestyles are on hold for everyone but hermits. As societies, we are adapting to changes being forced on us on a daily basis. The messages from country to country may differ in specifics but generally, the world has been told to protect itself […]

One Giant Step Backwards

In Canada, as it is around the world, public health officials are leading the fight to keep us safe. They are not offering the cure, but giving us once again, the information we need to avoid getting sick and how to avoid making others sick. It’s nothing new. We were taught about it in school […]

Even More Delays

That’s right… go back 2 posts for the start of this saga 😉 Part 3- The Deep-End We’re on schedule, go figure. Even though we have been a part of many delays around us, Honey and I are not really late. According to the big board at Pearson International airport in Toronto, we are on-time […]
