COVID 19 fallout.

Elspeth lives in Florida, where the weather is turning warm. It’s getting cold enough that we smelt woodsmoke last night and are discussing if we need to leave a car at the bottom of the drive because of black ice. The gyms will close soon. So, walk. Then read. The latest push to self-isolate means […]

Lent Sunday 3. (15 March 2020)

We have the snuffles (not a nasty virus, and there is officially no COVID 19 in the South Island) and we will do church virtually. Our church has embraced technology, and this means we can join the community and not infect others. The question at this time is how do we deal with times like […]

Corona Virus notebook (you are prepared, aren’t you?)

This is going to be quick. Overnight three things happened: the stock market fell and the EU protested Trump stopping flights, the panic buying hit the USA, and a couple of eyewitness accounts from Italy with recommendations. Firstly, Adam who translated that: you are not allowed to go anywhere but the supermarket and pharmacy and […]

Coronavirus Notebook.

Things are now moving very fast, so let’s just put things up as I find them and keep it going. Personally, I’ve cancelled any trips, and work is cancelling unneeded meetings. This should make us a lot more productive. My friend Mick referred me to a meditation by the good archbishop cramner, that is worth […]

Coronavirus update: this is becoming a series.

I read my author’s blogs. Peter Grant writes researched and realistic Westerns. He talks about expeditions, logistics, caches, finances and risks. Read his books. His comments on the preparation is correct. Our press are panicking. We should not. We should have enough food in the place anyway. See, also, the hysteria surrounding Vice-President Pence, who […]

Corona virus update.

I got an email yesterday about Allieaz, who insures me when I travel for work, not covering any COVID 19 related illnesses in contacts taken after January 30. In the meantime, Auckland University is freezing hiring because Chinese students can’t get here. Italy has closed all cultural and sporting centres and childcare centres in the […]

We don’t have to make things up. (Reactivity)

I am trying not to write about a certain virus. They are other posts: and there is enough stupidity left in this world to make a list of reactivity. To start with, one of our pollsters (National party: read globalist business) still believes racism is a sin. One committed by Shane Jones. It is not […]

The Coronavirus Update

Had an email conversation with my GP today. I apologized about getting all the family to see her (serially) and getting scripts. She was doing the same thing. In case. That case has just happened. Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern confirmed this afternoon that a suspected case of Covid-19 coronavirus has tested positive. Ardern said the […]
