    2 weeks ago, I met someone just like that.. She works in the health care sector even, but had no idea what was going on with Covid... Somehow... We had to bring her up to speed... :p

    Unless there's only 2? ;)

    What’s a murder of crows?
    A group of crows is called a “murder.” There are several different explanations for the origin of this term, mostly based on old folk tales and superstitions.

    For instance, there is a folktale that crows will gather and decide the capital fate of another crow.

    Many view the appearance of crows as an omen of death because ravens and crows are scavengers and are generally associated with dead bodies, battlefields, and cemeteries, and they’re thought to circle in large numbers above sites where animals or people are expected to soon die.

    But the term “murder of crows” reflects a time when groupings of many animals had colorful and poetic names. Other examples of “group” names include: an ostentation of peacocks, a parliament of owls, a knot of frogs, and a skulk of foxes.

    I actually purchased one roll of paper towels and 4 rolls of toilet paper. And no - you cannot come over and use my restroom. Or my two pet crows will have to be called in.
    They ride mini Honda bikes with little black leather jackets- be scared.

    There are more birds than there used to be here. On walks people keep their distance but still say hello. More people on bikes, the air is cleaner from the lack of traffic. People seem more relaxed, even kinder than usual where I live.

    I'm treating this very similar to a new startup, but I'm working with about 30% of the original water.
    I'll be cycling it for a few weeks and left the culture that exists in the canister filter in place to help it along.
    I still have to tweak the chemistry levels a little due to my hard water, and the nitrate & nitrite levels are borderline, but the rest of the readings on the test strips are looking favorable.
    The next step will be to add some change water from an existing rig that will likely occur next week.

    Almost Went To the Beach (To the Tune of "Almost Cut My Hair" By Crosby Stills Nash and Young)

    I almost went to the beach
    It happened just the other day
    I was gettin' kinda bored
    I could-a said, it was on my way
    But I didn't and I wonder why
    Didn't feel like spreading corona far and wide
    And I feel like I owe it to someone

    Must be because I'm quarantined 'til Christmas
    And I'm not allowed to drive my car
    It increases my paranoia
    Like lookin' in my mirror and seein' a police car
    But I'm not givin' in an inch to fear
    Cause I promised myself this year
    I feel like I owe it to someone

    When I finally get off quarantine
    I'm gonna get down in that sunny southern weather
    And I find a place outside to laugh
    Separate the wheat from the chaff
    I feel like I owe it to someone
