As I write this( 3/16/2020 ), the Chicago area is starting to lock down. Kate just left to pick up a family member and, at 5:30PM (rush hour), says there is no one on the highway.

There isn’t even an official lockdown yet, so I take that as a good sign that people in my area are taking this pandemic seriously.

This is also the first day I’m working from home. I’ve got a little spot in my basement to sit with my laptop.  Same space I record my videos.

And in other news, today the stock market tanked in reaction to the Fed lowering rated to almost zero.  The Dow closed down 3000 points.  YIKES!

These are crazy times!

( Oh! And Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Feeling Lucky? )
