We zoned out and missed our 100-day party!
Going to place it next week on July 1st, Canada Day.
Science Fair projects are coming along. Volcano research included studying, then writing a paragraph on, the Ring of Fire. Bella completed a diagram on the parts of a volcano. We also watched a National Geographic special about Kilauea.
We had a little excitement when we ran out of brown paint for the volcano. I called an audible and we did an impromptu class on pigments – mixed our own brown, which looked a little purple, initially.
Virus news is so volatile, there are developments opposite of my notes within 90 minutes of posting => endless humility training.
State in-bound quarantines (NY/NJ/CT), local positives (back up), large health systems partially shutting down (costly in care and profits).
Here’s what’s clear:
- The closest most of us could come to a meatpacking environment is an air-conditioned bar => dense, loud, humid and temperature controlled => additionally, there’s alcohol and a need to remove masks to drink. It is in our collective interest to pay to keep these places shut.
- ~100 million Americans live in a state where the virus appears to be accelerating (CA, TX, FL, AZ).
We have friends in the bar and restaurant business. Very tough times for them.
Not all bad news – the Feds won against a hospital group that sued to keep pricing secret.
