During the night, I put it on each side of my pillow, so whichever way I face, it is near my nose. In Asia I buy Eucalyptus oil capsules and take they by mouth. Some of the vapour from these comes out through the lungs.

3. Avoid sugar. Sugar reduces immunity.

4 Keep warm.

Antibiotics have no effect on viruses, and doctors know it. Eucalyptus oil vapour in the lungs, gets to where the infection is, and kills viruses.

People who try these things will be surprised how effective they are, particularly if they are used during the early stages of an infection.

I've learned two more Silver Jews songs. Got down over a dozen now. I can finally release my covers album of Dave Berman songs before the superflu gets me. "Albemarle Station" will end side 2. Damn pretty. Lots of Fmaj7 in all these...

So I've been watching a ton of Curb Your Enthusiasm (went back to season 1), been slowly building up a couple bikes, and also working in the garden. The forecast says we'll have 60° sunny weather up here in the Pac NW in a week ... can't get here soon enough.
Heard 70 for Winnemucca (Nevada)

Being an enveloped virus covid-19 is not affected by eucalyptus oil, so its limited antiviral properties don’t prevent, treat or have any benefit against covid-19. The essential oil products that are now trying to profit off the anxieties of the public are, thankfully, being immediately sued by the FDA for any misrepresentations in advertisements.
Along with plenty of water a balanced diet of a variety of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, dairy products, lean protein and foods with omega-3 fatty acids are the best way to build up your immune system but people can only PROTECT themselves and those around them from this coronavirus by diligently adhering to proper hygiene and distancing.

My new obsession is acquiring old film cameras. I may even use them.

I’m doing a lot of indoor projects to avoid as many people as possible.

I'd like to do some more riding, its a bit risky, a minor injury could result in a hospital visit, which could be a disaster.

A bike ride is serious freedom right now, I feel for the cyclists in areas where you can’t ride due to restrictions. Haven’t tuned in this morning for the latest information I think I will have straight black coffee before I can determine what is a true fact or an agenda.

A minor injury should as always be handled with the first aid kit from home.... Wash hands and use plenty of sanitizer wipes....
If I broke my arm right now, I wouldn't go to a hospital. Just sayin.....

I'd go to one of those little urgent care clinics, though. We have scores of them here.

Odd situation here in the Los Angeles County/Orange County areas (California) due to the coronavirus situation and overcrowding. We have two river-top MUPs close to me, the Santa Ana River Trail (in Orange County) and the San Gabriel River Trail (Los Angeles County, except a short stretch near the beach in OC). Los Angeles County CLOSED the San Gabriel River trail, while Orange County keeps the Santa Ana River Trail open (At least as of yesterday, Friday). Not sure how L.A. County will enforce the closure along a 50-60 mile trail.

the closing of beach parking here on the beach westside of la has actually made the 22 mile beach bike path a better place to ride, run or walk for social distancing.



eta....For the reasons of needed exercise and/or just mental breaks from the challenges being faced with now there was a very large influx of visitors to the parks, multi-use trails and hikes under L. A. park department’s control. That made it difficult and or impossible to maintain the needed social distancing so most were closed. Here on the beach westside we’re blessed with both a good bike path and easy/safe city riding, with even less traffic now, and also the close santa monica mountains to ride/hike….even just getting outside helps me and getting good outside exercise even more.

For me, its all about minimizing risk, I LOVE to ride,but eh?, its seems kinda selfish going for long solo rides.

I'll make up for this downtime eventually, or in my next life.

Having broken bones, over the past two decades in Shanghai, its going to require an x-ray at the minimum, and in one case I required emergency surgery.

I'm not going to repeat that experience, mostly for my wife's sake, especially given the current circumstances.

I'm still haunted by the sheer look of terror on her face as she pushed me around in a wheelchair at the hospital from room to room while leaving a trail of blood.

Social separation will and is creating a good bit of sexual frustration. Consequently I'm predicting a drop in birth rates and when one day this is all over, a steep climb in those rates. I hope the authorities are prepared. I know I am.

Reading tow books by Frank Bneto, The Dancing Chain, History and development of the derailleur bicycle and Complete Guide to Upgrading Your Bike. I finding out a lot about gear inches. In my advanced years I'm finding that I need lower gears to enjoy my rides more.

I'm also adjusting and riding all of my ridable bikes. I rode the eight of nine bikes today.

and cooking, cleaning, yard work, washing the car, catching up with old friends...

I'm quite sure that Tina Weymouth was their inspiration. Or the Runaways, or A Taste Of Honey. Three great examples to follow.

What you do to build arm strength in the privacy of your home is none of my bidness. Or if you alternate reps.
