Nice Comment

Adding to "the list", I do the following: work on a jigsaw puzzle (1000 pieces), play piano (mostly jazz), listen to classical music on the radio (and play CDs and tapes), walk, walk, and walk some more, crack home-grown pecans, bake a pie or cookies, and, of course, read! I'm only on the computer for less than an hour and hardly watch any TV except in the evening. I have plenty to do to keep my occupied. Oh yes, I often "kid-sit" and play with my 3 young grandchildren. Whew!

That's great, Ian!

I happened to retire and start a new romance a couple of months before the virus hit. Therefore I had plans with what to do with my time. A lot were stymied (concerts, art galleries, cinema) but as things eased in the Summer I got started. Learning French and bass guitar. Now the second lockdown has come I've still got things to work on and practice.

My ladyfriend has almost no experience of art, classical or jazz music, or cinema so I'm introducing her to a new world. We've managed a few symphony concerts when possible but otherwise using online sources or DVDs. It's nice to see someone experiencing some classics of cinema for the first time as well as music in genres new to her.

Yes, Joan Denoo vaccinating the whole world has to be a priority. There's no reason apart from racism to let them suffer. On top of that, we'd be doing ourselves a favour. Less developed countries can act as a resovoir for the virus which will them mutate and bounce back.

Yes, I often find other uses for things.

Comment was by Chris B 11 hours ago

Other ideas;

declutter your apartment

try to make something useful from the things you find while decluttering

Leftover wool into new scarves, old buttons to decorate things, old pieces of cloth become patches, bags etc.

I think it was grade 3 by the time we got the Salk vaccine in our schools. That would have been somewhere around 1955-56, or close to when I got it. My boosters were the flavoured lot.

Mrs.B, it seems you had almost all the childhood infections. 
" the Salk vaccine was effective. In 1954, more than 38,000 cases of polio were reported. By 1961, the number was down to 1,000. The Salk vaccine “ended the terror of polio in the United States,”

~Thomas Abraham, “Polio: The Odyssey of Eradication.”

["The first children to take the sugar oral polio vaccine." "Some 20,000 preschool-age children lined up at doctor’s offices across Cincinnati to receive the free vaccine, two drops in a teaspoon of cherry-flavored syrup. (The “spoonful of sugar” of the oral polio vaccine was the inspiration for the “Mary Poppins” song.)"

~ Dr. Albert B. Sabin, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital on April 24, 1960.

I also put a little make up on every day.

Languages are not my thing either.

Yes, & I had scarlet fever, measles, whooping cough, mumps, chicken pox, & German measles.

I got the polio vaccine as soon as it got to the schools, as well as the smallpox, TB, etc.

I knew 2 or 3 kids at school who's had polio, & it terrified me.
