I feel that one can never become completely visible.

Strava should have a mowing activity, with mowing achievements.

Too many self-propelled cheaters.

Helplessly Hoping.

No one with a brain really thought it would work.

Nor in Arkansas, Texas, South Carolina, Kentucky, Tennessee...

We will learn to live with it as we have with diabetes and motor vehicle disease.

I am slowly beginning to resume normal activities. It feels GREAT!

This.
And soon mosquito borne encephalitis, dengue, zika. Who knows? Maybe malaria will make a comeback, in a whole new(now warm enough) continent.
Welcome to the third world.
The strongman is already in place

We knew this was coming didn't we. From that perspective this is not news but a confirmation of what was known and expected.

One of the guys in my club has been constantly chirping to let everybody know that he thinks the stay at home order has been farce. The head-scratcher, to me, is using a relatively slow spread to argue that the order wasn't necessary, as opposed to, oh, using that data as support of efficacy of the action. His most recent chirp was that covid has "disappeared." :twitchy:

What's infuriating is that many people in AZ think the whole thing is a hoax, and refuse to social distance or wear a mask.

Well, actions have consequences and just as often inaction will have consequences. In the case of a viral infection the consequences may be death or a life time of illness. That seems clear to me but obviously not clear to many.

Here in the hampton roads area ai continue to see people with mask hanging off there face while in a store, and then when they get in there car they put the mask on properly.

Makes sense. :twitchy:

Re COVID19 increases, as everyone knows this is no surprise. Totally expected. The real question is, will this just be a minor bump and we can manage it with most people still behaving, wearing masks etc. or is there going to be a HUGE spike in cases which can and will overwhelm the hospitals etc., I hope it's just a small bump but vamos a ver.

Yup. Like how I want to buy a new chef's knife, but the purchase price would go a long way towards a wheelset upgrade, which I also really want to do. Complicating matters is the fact that the knives are available now while the wheelsets will be available in a few months, at which time the knives may not be available. "May you live in interesting times," indeed. :(

I bet that some people think this is a yuge surprise. Well, if they don't outright believe it's a hoax.

If they think the whole thing is a hoax, they won't be surprised about any news regarding the virus, up OR down. Sad!

I had the kids help me make some Nutella brownies this morning. Just sampled them after cooling - dangerous. I don't think that the (thankfully) small pan of them will be around for long.

Annual Mowing Achievement looming; Once-a-week mowing. May be a reality this week. :)

Heard today that 20 states have increasing numbers of cases. A few days ago that number was 14.

sounds tantalizing.

I have found that slicing up a cake and other goodies, and installing into separate containers, removes much of the temptation.

Texas is blowing up too. More hospitalized cases now than before lockdown.
