I came home and saw my next door neighbor (about my age) out for the first time since Christmas. Told me he was in the hospital for a week until Monday, having caught COVID sometime around the new year. He has had three vax shots, and is not a big crowd type guy. He said he was really sick, and was put on Remesivir. He had a kidney transplant not long ago, so I’ve got to believe his immunology system was not real strong.

HAD. I tried to find them a couple decades ago, but they were gone.

Route 30 was also the alternative way to get to Pittsburgh, if you didn't want to take the Turnpike. It's WAY hillier than the Turnpike, since it has to go OVER instead of THROUGH a couple of the ridges of the Alleghenies.

I also grew up very close to it and traveled on it a lot in those days.

Anyone whoís had an organ transplant is on pretty heavy immunosuppression. Scary businesss.

I wonít say exactly what I made for dinner. It would make some of you jealous. Letís just say it involved a baked bronzino stuffed with lemon and fresh thyme and roasted leeks and baby potatoes in a vinaigrette of white wine, olive oil, sherry vinegar and lemon juice.

Strava still won't let you do miles and grams. Pffft.

Can't wait to get this over with. .

Could be some good news that the US may have or is about to peak for cases. If so, that's about 10 days earlier than projected from what I hear. Georgia looks like it has even begun a downward trend. Let's hope so. From GA Dept of public health website.

quite a few east coast states look like they may have already peaked. I don't think AZ is there yet...

That feeling when you're shopping used goods online, you see one with a lower price, and you wonder if there's something wrong with it that you're missing. :foo:

The other day, I was looking for handlebars. One place had them for $15 cheaper than anyone else. With a $15 shipping charge.
