Obviously ^^ I kwow that dear
Well, not a hurricane, but a low-pressure area. Very unpleasant for flying.

As far back as late November, U.S. intelligence officials were warning that a contagion was sweeping through China’s Wuhan region, changing the patterns of life and business and posing a threat to the population, according to four sources briefed on the secret reporting.

Concerns about what is now known to be the novel coronavirus pandemic were detailed in a November intelligence report by the military's National Center for Medical Intelligence (NCMI), according to two officials familiar with the document’s contents.

I Wonder If He Thinks That Will Help?

Or is he just trying to divert our attention.

He wants to grab the money, as always, because he can then use it elsewhere.
...total diversionary tactic...

Pink Moon: Europe illuminated by lunar light show | BBC News

Stargazers have enjoyed the emergence of what is known as a pink moon in the night skies of Europe.
Despite its name, there is not any noticeable colour difference to the full moon - due to reach a peak in the UK at 03:55 BST on Wednesday.
The pink supermoon name is a northern Native American reference to an early-blooming wildflower and is first seen across North America as spring begins.
Tuesday evening's lunar light show was captured through breathtaking images.
The light show, part 1.


April's pink supermoon – in pictures | Art and design | The Guardian

A supermoon occurs when the moon reaches its closest position to the Earth, known as the perigee, making the satellite appear bigger and brighter than usual. This month’s supermoon is also a pink moon: the name comes from the herb, moss pink, or wild ground phlox which are bright pink in colour

He'll Buy Those Religious Votes If He Can't Earn Them

Just when you think he's hit the bottom, he grabs a bigger shovel and keeps digging.
They same church leaders that are defying stay at home orders and gathering their parishes into great big virus sharing collectives so they can all test their faith and see who doesn't get sick and who dies for not enough faith?

WTF this should NEVER have gotten past the house. Pelosi is NOT doing her job nor is her staff if they let this sort of backdoor deal sneak in while she did let them screw with it and remove money for other more important segments of the population (including care of, testing for, and long term needs for the families of Health Care Workers and other First Responders who are severely harmed or die doing their jobs).

Alex Grey is the best.

Shadow of Wuhan

On my usual street photography round in London's Chinatown district, I saw what I was hoping to find: people wearing face masks. Most of us who do street photography feel that we're documenting life and history at an everyday level. So missing the chance of a shot like this seemed unthinkable.
I've just uploaded the latest post to my blog, mono log. It's a lot later than I'd planned but I hope you enjoy it.

Cloth Gnocchi & Jed: Quarantine | YouTube

What to watch when you've run out of things to watch. Or you could just watch it anyway. If you've got a lot of time on your hands. As this young lady did. I mean, just think how long it took her to make all of this stuff, let alone make the video. Oh, and it's nearly 15 minutes long. That's fifteen long minutes. You can stop reading now.

10 Surprising Ways to Calm an Anxious Child | Psychology Today

Telling anxious kids to "calm down" or "buck up" doesn't work. Here's what does.
Some of these tips aren't surprising at all if you've been a parent for long enough. But do you know how to stimulate the vagus nerve? Or what 'crossing the midline' achieves? No? Read on...

Enough For Today, Bye Now

Impeached Trump felt safe; he could just spin and spin while the useless eaters died. When Boris Johnson went into the ICU, he realized that he's not immune either. You'd think he'd change his tune, but he's riding the tiger and can't get off.

Nice sentiment, from another century. I can't see how anyone can have faith in our democracy any more.

A sunny Woden's Day to you all, the patio is open for the first class passengers and I will wait a bit for the others..... maybe not hold on...ok everyone is out. Tomorrow snow is predicted...great....Q is into his concerned mode and now sees this is going to be a major thing. He would rather I be safe at the cottage in Blacks Harbour, but I know he is happy we are together...we have moments of bliss of the world being gone then the reality drops in like a hillbilly relative.....Laundry is in the washer ... speaking of laundry I have some suggestions to help make this lock down maybe a bit easier on the mental strain we are all feeling...try to dress nicely a few times a week, unless you have no laundry facilities do your undies and wear clean clothes as often as you can, brush your hair, tidy your beard, shave....I do makeup nearly every day...what I do is not a huge amount normally but it makes me feel better when I see me in a reflection that I am not some pathetic slob. ( bra is optional.... for me it is off 99%)Do your dishes after you eat and not make a big huge mess to stare at all day or for days that is such a depressing thing....if you have good stuff or fancy stuff in the dish department use it....as you know I use the inherited sterling all the time; I have no ugly flat wear.....well I do but it is in a shoe box in the garage .....try to eat at regular times grazing was OK for the weekend but having a sit down meal at the table is a good thing....even if it is a TV tray in font of the TV or at your computer desk....and as per my vision....conserve your supplies act like that is the last one you have and reuse the paper towel of use a dish cloth...I have lots of suggestions all tried by me so If you need to ask about something feel free..... How are you today?

@Nora Qudus I went to the office for the first time in two weeks because data tapes won't change themselves. And it is fine.

Maybe I had a little drink too because there is no one here anyway. And I let my beard free. Something has to be done about it though because it itches. Maybe this weekend.

It is going to be all right.
we can always hope for the best....and that needs to keep us on level mental ground. @Alexander
@Nora Qudus This too shall pass.

Or it will become the new norm which is fine too.

We will survive :)

Suspected Russian operatives tried using forged diplomatic documents, social media to create divisions

"A Russian information operation relied on forged diplomatic emails and planted articles on a number of social media sites in an attempt to undermine multiple governments and impersonate U.S. lawmakers, according to a new analysis of recent social media activity."

"Massachusetts-based Recorded Future on Wednesday published findings detailing how Russian-language operatives spent months using popular internet services to try to interfere in Estonia, the Republic of Georgia and the U.S. The effort appears to be a continuation of a prior Russian campaign, dubbed Operation Secondary Infektion, that utilized Facebook and dozens of online platforms to sow division in the West and discredit political efforts."

"The ongoing covert influence effort revealed Wednesday, known as Operation Pinball, involved activity on discussion sites like Reddit, LiveJournal, an array of self-publishing sites, falsified social media profiles that prioritized strong operational security over reaching a large audience. In one instance, Recorded Future detected a Reddit account involved in distributing leaked documents from trade talks between the U.S. and U.K. in November 2019."

My youngest daughter and I cycled into the old city to accompany my wife home. I have never seen Copenhagen Inner city so empty. Nørregade, Fiolstræde, Frue Plads - not an eye!

It is wonderful to be without cars. I am all for a car free city and this just convince me even more.
