    Things to Do While You are Sheltering in Place

    Netflix has a new documentary on Fangio. I am not nearly old enough to remember him race, but by most all metrics except championships and races won(seasons were a LOT shorter then) he is the GOAT of F1 driver's. I didn't find the documentary particularly mesmerizing or inspiring, but certainly worth a watch if you are interested in this kind of thing. https://www.google.com/amp/s/racer.c...ts-fangio/amp/

    I was planning to utilize my time turning beer, wine and scotch into urine.

    I was just reading a couple of flyers from the Veteran's Clinic in Brookings,Oregon.
    It said that the virus can't survive above 80 degrees,& drink lots of hot liquids

    It also said that the one of the first symptoms is a sore throat lasting 3-4 days.

    Hi Doug - is that Veterans Clinic officially run by the VA?

    There's a *lot* of false or misleading info floating around, on the 'net as well as on paper.

    The flashing red light for me was "virus can't survive above 80 degrees". If our bodies are usually 98 degrees, then why is there a virus problem.

    Points to ponder. Just sayin'

    If the cited temp is centigrade, converting to farenheit it is 176. According to WHO, 56 centigrade produced "rapid reduction" of SARS 1. Covid 19 is SARS 2. Stating the obvious, neither is of course achievable in the body. If the source of any info is not CDC, WHO, Fauci, Johns Hopkins or the like, do not credit it at all.

    So much for Fangio, probably should have used a better title for the topic.

    Since we are on home isolation, my wife says we have to ration things like wine. She limits me to one glass.

    I saw Fangio doing a demonstration drive in the W196 at the Monterey Historics, before it became the Rolex Reunion. There was a 500SL camera car leading him. We could tell he was annoyed that the camera car was slow, so he kept pushing the camera car until the driver spun in Turn 9. Then Fangio put on a real show to much cheering!

    I'm reading sixteen books right now. I guess you could say I'm having a problem focusing, usually I'm only reading ten or so.

    I drove up to Vasquez Rocks on Saturday for a little IR photography. Almost turned around due to rain. Glad I kept on.

    Slept in,& finally got motivated,& mowed the lawn.It started to rain,just as I was
    finishing.

    I wonder though whether the contagious factor is going to be a buzzkill?

    We have been doing a bunch of work related stuff (we work from home anyway - so lots of Zoom) Lots of organizing physical space and cyberspace. I currently have an old laptop set up to rip DVDs to my NAS drive as I have long been meaning to do.

    I have a basement to finish and of course a Vauxhall in the garage.

    SWMBO & I are also catching up on TV.

    Catching up on Brooklyn Nine Nine
    Saw the last season of The Good Place (best finale ever - beats the last episode of MASH hands down)

    We have Chromecast and have been watching various cozy mysteries

    We finished this season of
    Midsomer Murders
    Death in Paradise
    Catching up on Vera

    We just watched season one of the Great Pottery Throw Down (like the Great British Baking Show) and we are also watching the Great Gardening Challenge (also British)

    Closer to home you might want to catch

    The Gardener https://www.tvo.org/video/documentaries/the-gardener
    This is an amazing documentary about a garden in the Charlevoix area of Quebec (beyond Quebec City) It is the story of Francis Cabot (Frank) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Francis_Cabot - American Gardener & Financier. It is an amazing story and a gorgeous garden, and even more amazing when you consider it is Zone 4 and they get 150 days of winter a year.

    Oh and lots of hot tub time with wine or scotch.

    I think I could maybe get thru that bottom book in the pile. but the rest, forget it. Yet for real intellectual stimulation I'm waiting on B.S. Levy's last book in the Last Open Road series.
