    Linda's company undertook a couple of years ago to ally her company with a private school that was heavily into online education, by becoming their Music and Drama department.

    We've now got her and her teachers setup to use Zoom and Facetime (the kids are all comfortable with either, much more than the adults), teaching music and drama classes online, and her company's thriving on doing so.

    She's now got an online "Masters Class", with pro musician friends spread around the country, that is solely online.

    Without that, some of those folks would be starving by now ...

    Another upside ... her excuse for not being with me here at the lake house more, because of her business, just evaporated like a snowball in the Sahara. <EG>

    Related to this in particular, and the topic in general, there's public perception. Bleach smells strong and people think it makes things smell clean, and "everyone knows" that bleach kills everything immediately, so I'm sure it's often used just because people think it means they know what they're doing even if it means the opposite.

    Based on some obscure social media posts, there may be a gathering of open carry folks in Coryell County in response to this article:

    https://www.tdtnews.com/news/coronavirus/article_be1a146b-112c-5a4f-a4be-bb5196efd5d4.html

    I already have to drive through there on the way to check on things at the ranch, so I'm seriously thinking about joining them. It would be interesting to hold a "social distancing" sunrise service (Oh, and Happy Good Friday to those who follow) and then a Bill of Rights exercise.

    Waiting for AG Paxton opinion on this order. He was good enough to point out to Gunnison County, CO officials that it was unconstitutional to bar people
    From traveling to and through their area.

    Very appropriate. I tell those who doubted that the AntiChrist will just be able to waltz in and take over to just ask themselves if some minor world leader came up with the solution to the pandemic, economic and immigration chaos, would 90% of the free world embrace him as a hero and savior

    We have a few people who utilize the office as their social outlet. Their jobs are non-essential, but they have nothing else to do so they come to work and make the rounds finding people to chit chat with. One such person has a menial "job" just to keep employed, and people have to avoid and reroute to avoid getting 'trapped' in a conversation. Another is the quintessential gossiper, makes the rounds selectively being snarky or overly friendly depending on who might have the juiciest dirt. It's sad, and it's most definitely a negative distraction.
