  1. Now, let's get this thing into perspective... Worldwide, 38 million people have HIV Latest figure for Covid-19 infections: 11.5 million. Officially recorded Covid-19 deaths, so far: just over 0.522 million AIDS report: Kids are lagging and Covid-19 is harming care
  2. We had a tornado in Marian Village a few years ago. Just a very small one, fortunately. But it ripped my fire tree out and nearly blew my kubo away - with me in it!!!

    I wonder if it's haunted?!!
  13. I've just started reading a book called "Men Explain Things to Me" by Rebecca Solnit. The dedication reads: (my emphasis) Well... Having a mother, a sister, two nieces and three wonderful daughters, I would say that you can count me in there! This is a very interesting book. Deadly serious in places but laced throughout with Rebecca's ferocious humor!! (I'll try to find a better word than "ferocious" to describe her sense of humor - but that will have to do for now...) One thought that struck me as soon as I started to get into the book is that men explain things to me too. I think it must me a "man thing"? So don't worry, Rebecca. It's not just women that men try to explain things to. They do it to each other. All the flippin time!! I have lost count, for instance, of all the men who have been explaining to me recently about the new coronavirus. As if I'd never even heard of it?!! Okay, okay... So I have been locked-down on a ship for the best part of five months now. But we do have internet on here. And I can actually read the news.
