We've been trying to do delivery for groceries. Limiting actual time in the stores seems important plus I know a lot of people are trying to make money working for Instacart.

we're quite remote and I don't think anyone delivers groceries here...I checked instacart at least and they do not

Hey Folks - Popping in.  Iím glad Jake bugged me to do so.  Howís everyone? 

Iím gonna be an asshole, and not read all the backlog.  Is everyone safe and at home?

Iím huddled at home.  Not really going anywhere except here and my girlfriendís house.  Neither is she.  We sent the kids home a week early for spring break, and weíre now closed on campus for the year.  We ďgo backĒ on Monday - digitally.  I spent my break wallowing, prepping, and redoing my home office to prepare.  Working from home is tough.  Way tougher I know for the girlfriend and her 6 year old - and the rest of you with kids in the house.

How is everyone?  I havenít had the emotional fortitude to engage a lot - thus why I didnít come by sooner, but Iíve been thinking of you all.

Some people are seeing it but there are others that think he's doing a fine job.  I know there are people that will totally be on board with his 'I am choosing not to wear a mask.  It's just a recommendation.' bullshit that he spouted yesterday.

No, I heard the same.  Spectrum is offering a no-cost option for people that need it.  It seems like all the kids in my kids' classes have access.  They had a Zoom meeting the other day and I assume those will pick up.  They actually have spring break next week but both of my kids have stuff they need to finish up that's due by the time remote learning resumes the following week.

At least from a legal perspective we have to have an election.  Congress and the President have fixed terms that expire on particular days.  And while the president has the electoral college that does the actual voting it isn't the same with congress.

What thing that made me glad to see is that people are wising up to just how crappy of a job the president is doing with this response.

Our local store is still out of paper products, canned soups, flour, and yeast.  But bread and tortillas are back.

Quick reading says the slime is bad and is a sign of bacteria infections.

The roots on my tomato plans are almost reaching the water reserve.  There isn't a ton of head room so it isn't a complete surprise.

so the plants in the first pipe are not doing too well. Only three are thriving, the rest are dying. I'm not sure why. The roots are covered in some slimy thing - not sure if that's suppose to be there. Even with those results, I did the two other pipes yesterday because my seedlings started getting really big and I needed to separate them. I added a different fertilizer to the water in these two.

I also took the rest of the seedling and put them in bigger pots.

Half of my tomatoes died - don't know why. Will try again.

Peppers are just starting to germinate.

I'll take some pictures tomorrow.
