pretty good for a thinning, greying middle aged man.

A-and more in this long overdue diary.

Covid Poll

I'm sitting in a large lab at the corporate campus to which I am contracted at. This is my third day this week I've had to come here, and I'm trying to avoid another trip next week. If the media I need to validate is ready before 2:30, I can get into a different large lab that closes at 3:30 and not have to come in on Monday or Tuesday. The different lab is for our integrated black and white devices. They're not as thrilling as CMYK + printers, but it's a job.

I've been having to go the corporate campus 2-3 times a week, so much for working from home. There are large monstrosities that are selling and having problems that are not available at my group's facilities overseas. Just about anything that needs to be done on the actual printer falls to me.

The corporation to which I am contracted to has a media burning facility here. I pick up media, validate that it works and ship it to an employee of the third corporation I am entwined with.

Because our project is dying, there had been plans to move me into something different, and let the other two cow-orkers in my city take over my duties. They're good developers and they might be wasted doing what I do. Plus, I've been doing it for a long time, I'm efficient.

Mrs. Ha is going back to school, at Empire State College. They've accepted 72 of her credits from her undergraduate and nursing school times. Her long term goal is to become a counselor/therapist, so her current class is about figuring out how to do that. She may shoot for a BS in Pyschology, or Human Services, or Social Work, or Liberal Arts, or whatever can get her that degree quickest.

It's a good time for her to go back to school. She left her grocery store job at the end of June, and was unemployed until late October where she got seasonal work at a liquor store. That lasted until New Year's Eve, she's been unemployed since. Unemployment is still considering her application. The money would be nice, we're still broke.

There aren't a lot of jobs out there, so she may as well go to school.

Twenty_four_year old has had a lucky streak. Her health club closed early in the pandemic, between the first 600 a week plus unemployment (quadrupling her salary) and the recent 300 a week plus unemployment she's paid down a lot of her debt. Money for nothing.

She spends her time helping with nineteen_year_old, catching Pokemon with an old lifeguard cow-orker, taking care of her snails and her beta, and sleeping until 3 pm sometimes.

Nineteen_year_old is also doing very well. She moved into the cheapest apartments available at RIT with her BF and a friend in August. The friend left near the end of fall semester to go remote and isn't coming back, so she and the bf and the emotional support cat have a two bedroom to theirselves. They get to live in sin and we're paying for it.

RIT is isolated, so she needs rides a few times a week to get groceries and school supplies. Twenty_four_year_old helps out there, which is nice. We get a break.

I do have a batch of honey lager in secondary, and I'm getting so bored of pandemic.

My parents are okay, my dad's Alzhiemer's is getting worse and my mom has to learn how to use computers now.

A lot of my kin in Elk County got Covid, Irish_girl got it, the bf got it in NOLA, a casual friend got it, and a guy I worked with in Portland got it. Some old classmates from high school got Covid. We've missed it so far, but NY vaccinations are a mess, my parents haven't even got their vaccinations yet

Have her do Social Work all the way through, and thank me later. They won't tell you this when you're signing up to give them your tuition, but people with SW degrees will make more money and have more opportunities open to them than any other counseling specialty.

I will mention it to her by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #2 Fri Feb 05, 2021 at 03:12:26 PM EST

UK in Competent Covid Programme Shock by jump the ladder (4.00 / 1) #4 Sat Feb 06, 2021 at 02:53:10 AM EST
Yeah the UK govt has been one of the worst in terms in the covid response but it's playing a blinder in terms of vaccinations. My mid 70s parenst got vaccinated last month Daily vaccinations are a 0.5million a day.. They aim to have all the over 50s vaccinated by May plus vulnerable and medical workers.

They are heavily using the Oxford/AZ vaccine though which seems good but not as good as the Pfizer or Moderna one.

It's apparently as good at preventing by wiredog (2.00 / 0) #6 Sat Feb 06, 2021 at 09:57:24 AM EST
serious illness, less so at preventing infection.

many vaccines by StackyMcRacky (2.00 / 0) #8 Mon Feb 08, 2021 at 10:35:09 AM EST
do not prevent infection, they just prevent illness.

It’s such a British cliche by Scrymarch (2.00 / 0) #7 Sun Feb 07, 2021 at 06:34:05 AM EST
Being good at the second half of every war.

Better than at least one of the alternatives, though. Glad to see the vaccination progress.
