Essential news delivered via Mudcat! Good to know, Charmion. Are they having any more luck getting people vaccinated now or is that still at a trickle? This is absolutely the time when those vaccine patents need to be shared widely. To say nothing of the embarrassment of the company in Maryland that the federal government has funded for years to be ready for this kind of work - discarding millions of J&J vaccines because they were contaminated. The place isn't clean and it's poorly run. Someone step in and clear out that mess and supervise the way they should be. That is an international disgrace. Heads should roll and jobs definitely terminated, someone was getting rich without putting in the work.

Thunderstorm last night brought out the worst in Pepper, she literally peed all over the house. The question is - voluntary or involuntary? I'm going to call the vet to ask about a valium of some sort for her, and I'll shop the pet store for big dog diapers. I've been meaning to wash all of the floors in the house anyway.

In the office I have rearranged some of the wall shelf contents (moved speakers up two shelves) in order to position a new record player next to the old computer and to test this USB player I found at Goodwill. It has never been unpacked out of the box, but it is several years old. The thing comes with it's own software and recommends using Audacity to make MP3s from your LPs, but I'm more interested in larger durable files so will use Nero to capture the files and save them as something more robust. I need to try that soon because there is a 2 week window at Goodwill to return electronics if they don't work. I'd get my $8.99 back.

In February 2020 I had the knee replacement and took a few weeks off from a volunteer project at a local museum, intending to return in March 2020. In May 2021 I am finally returning to the project. What a year + it has been! We'll all be wearing masks and social distancing, but everyone has been vaccinated.

Dorothy, I hope you can get back to Beaver sooner rather than later, but don't get yourself all turned around if that trip comes with too many complications. Stay safe, that's what we all want to see for you and R!
