It’s Sunday morning and the pups have been out for their first walk. Ms. Crosby is good with just a half mile after breakfast followed my a nap during CBS Sunday morning. As a senior elkhound Crosby will still take to snowy trails for a mile or more, because the snow brings out her inner puppy. She’s trying to teach her adopted sister Phoebe to learn to slow down a little, but at 10 years YOUNGER than Crosby, Phoebe is […]
We are beginning week four of life with Ms. Phoebe. When we first adopted Phoebe, we realized she had just given birth to a bunch of pups around the beginning of 2021. She had just stopped nursing and the pups were getting adopted before her. Since Ms. Phoebe has joined our house, I’ve begun the post-baby weight workouts with her two times per day. Ms. Crosby is usually good for one of the two big workouts, but at almost 15 […]
In case you still want to be an Undie runner, the official event is this upcoming Saturday. It’s virtual so you can run wherever and join the party online. We came together as a team with our masks, social distancing and small group. We also took to the bricks of our back alley. If you sponsored one of us or the entire team to help fund the battle with NF- thank you. Love and undies, #rileysriverrats
Oh Canada, it looks like the NHL is going to give you a division all within your borders in this Covid-19 world. Thanks to the #Trumpvirus part of Covid-19, there really is no way to let American teams travel into Canada safely. Our inability as American’s to make personal decisions that mitigate the spread of Covid-19 have led us to this holiday season where Turkey Day will be via Zoom instead of in person. We started off the holiday last […]
This is definitely the time of year to do things differently. If you haven’t been watching the news. . . our Covid-19 numbers in the United States are increasing exponentially. The asymptomatic carriers are everywhere. The way testing works and doesn’t work only makes sense if we contact trace, app notify, test and then have 14 day isolations plans in place. Ask the Pitt Men’s soccer team- the athletic program was getting tested throughout the course of the week after […]
You tell me. In trying to keep everybody off of the news and election counting for today we are sharing this slide show. You will need to open this in your browser.
It was a month before Thanksgiving and all through the country, epidemiologists were recommending we all stay put for the holiday. While the politicians were saying we are already around the corner, Covid-19 seems to have a mind of it’s own. Just piecing together a plan for Thanksgiving Covid-19. I’m not planning on hosting a super spreader event. I’m planning an audible with a little ZOOM. In reviewing how the Residence is not planning anything for Thanksgiving, we were going […]
Just back from Magic Town and I can’t get over how many people either don’t wear a mask or if they are wearing the mask don’t wear it correctly. Hello Monongahela Valley— Charleroi had over 52 cases recorded and Monongahela was over 40. COVID-19 is everywhere. It will find you if you go out and don’t follow the recommended protocols. Listen to this discussion.https://www.npr.org/transcripts/889431742
https://www.propublica.org/article/two-coasts-one-virus-how-new-york-suffered-nearly-10-times-the-number-of-deaths-as-california Right now the United States of America is anything but united. We have states doing one thing and el presidente pushing to do something different. After taking in some sightings of large gatherings over the Memorial Day weekend, I’m hoping that we don’t see a resurgence of Covid-19 cases in the next few weeks. So what will Crosby continue to help us do? Social Distance, Walk on trails not around other people, wash our piggy’s often and wear a […]
What do the kids do all day, everyday when Covid-19 shutters their schools? I recall those days when I was one of the first people to play with my PC. We had to load programs and save documents using things called floppy disks. If you printed a story it took forever with a dot matrix printer instead of a laser jet. https://www.hmhco.com/blog/free-learning-resources https://www.netflix.com/title/80167821 https://www.duolingo.com/courses
I hope it finds you feeling. . . OK it may be night two and you know the acoustic approach is always special. . . It’s days like these you look back and realize the time we have on this one sweet world to do our little dance and share our energy is truly limited. . .
OK the project list keeps growing and it appears I’m either feeling my age, Pittsburgh winter, or just a little run down. . . .Well I guess an ALL of the ABOVE option is possible. What do you do? Here’s my current approach, thanks to that discussion about that Covey approach to the 7 Habits. Regroup, recover and let the mind and body rest, instead of diving into the next project. Regarding projects, property, and finding a good time to […]
