My neighbor, who is a scientist at the university, is standing in the street at the back of his SUV disinfecting 5 bags of groceries. He's been out there for a half hour.

He’s got the right idea...leave in the garage for 3 days if you can.

I just encountered this gentleman, down in the town square, sitting on a bench.  Someone was looking out for him.  (I practiced social distance when I took his photo)

The local news is reporting that our governor is going to close the schools for the rest of the year.  

The rest of 2020?  Or the rest of the school year?

The school year.

Nobody's deciding things about August except for stuff like the Olympics.

Our governor said the earliest they're going to revisit the issue of schools reopening is April 17th, but I feel that schools will remain closed for the rest of the school year. They're talking about mid-May for the peak of the virus around here, so we'll still be seeing cases into July.

This is the beginning of this. Right now people are handling this lockdown stuff pretty well, but it's only been a couple of weeks. I'm worried about when people are going to start acting squirrelly. Domestic abuse cases are already on the rise.

Seems like you gotta be half-dead before they'll test you...

Or rich. James Dolan, owner of the Knicks tested positive. This snip from the story concerned me...

The latest big name to register a positive test was New York Knicks owner James Dolan, who is currently not experiencing symptoms according to an announcement from the team

So if he has no symptoms, how/why did he get a test?

Really? I haven't heard that on the news but it makes sense, pinned up all day with someone I'm sure it's bound to happen.

This is why I’m still going to work even though the boss offered to let me work from home. My wife says that she is working in the flower garden, but it looks like she is digging a shallow grave. 😳

ha ha... my wife told me a similar joke like that today.   I think it was a shot across the bow.

Explore hospital bed use, need for intensive care beds, and ventilator use due to COVID-19 based on projected deaths for all 50 US states and District of Columbia

This appears to be an interesting site. It shows some fairly optimistic things, it looks like. I'd be surprised if they were true, but… fingers crossed.

Umm, he’s rich? Or maybe NYC wanted to make sure he wasn’t Typhoid Mary after being exposed to others.

Thanks for the share.   This is very informative.    It makes us realize we aren't out of the woods yet.

After the daily White House press briefing, it seems like the experts are predicting at least 100K will die from this even with the protective measures in place. I hope not, that is a grim outlook for sure.

    • It was probably a gift. Personalized golf ball. 
    • Day 72 (6/15/21) - Worked on tempo with my putter and a metronome.
    • Three rounds to catch up on: 5/12: Played Hillandale from the whites. Not a good start, +5 after 3 holes, but I parred the tough fourth hole and battled back to shoot 44 on the front and 42 on the back for 86. I was pretty happy after the poor start. Irons were spectacular, but short game…not so much. 5/14: Yesterday it was back to Umstead Pines, and we decided to play the blues. I played a solid front nine, 44. Three pars and two doubles. My bro played one of the best nines of his life. After a triple on the first hole, he parred the second and then bogeyed in. 47 for him! We moved on to the back. I slipped a little to start the back, but I righted the ship again and parred the last two holes for 45 on the back and 89 total. How I shot 89 is beyond me, because my whole game felt shaky after about the sixth hole. 5/15: I had a feeling before we played that I would go low, and I did. I was +1 through 7, and while I doubled 8 after an unlucky bounce on my tee shot, I rolled in about a ten footer for birdie on 9 to shoot a two-over 38 on the front. And after 12, I was still only +3, having started par-bogey-par.  Thoughts started creeping in, and I doubled 13, 14 and 16 with a three putt bogey on 15. +10 going into 17. I caught a horrific bounce on my approach and had to settle for bogey, then I parred the last hole to shoot 45 on the back and an 83 total. Unlike the last two rounds, short game was on point today. I hit nine fairways, and two of my misses were by no more than a yard. I’ve got an early tee time tomorrow morning with a buddy, and we’re planning on playing a handicap match. More on that tomorrow!
    • Day 1 backswing work yesterday at Golf Evolution with @iacas   Day 2. Back home.  Did mirror work drills this evening.
    • Day 112.  Morning I snuck out to the putting green;  after warm-up, I did the 4' drill.  Must have had a harder break this time, took me 18 putts to finish.  Not bad, not great.  Got home, got some work done, went back to practice (the rest is at home).  I did a dozen chip shots with my 54 (well, a friend's 54 I'm thinking of trying for a few rounds) and then did 20 full shots with the 7-iron (slow, as I'm practicing something).  I think adjustments after the video the other day have helped to change the picture, and I want to go confirm this tomorrow if I can.
