Hi Narciso, reduced to lurking lately. By the time I get caught up on a thread it's time to go do something. Like now; fire up the work computer and have at it.

Sunny yesterday so went down to jog on the boardwalk in Balboa about 3 in the afternoon. It was packed. Walkers, joggers, bicyclers, skaters ... social distance virtually nil. Like old times (last summer).

So. Yesterday about 4:30 the director of engineering comes through the area and tells us that anyone who can do their job at home is requested to do so. That's most of us, including me. Him coming in person is telling us that the company really means it. Said they expect this to be necessary for about two weeks, which is when they expect C-19 in the US to have crested. But they'll let us know when exactly to come back. This may seem a bit sensible for an American business, so for reference, this a medical device division of one of the Pharmaceutical behemoths.
Catsmeat, yes, Finally watched an episode to get the kids off my back. Oldest boy even gave me his Disney login (!). Wound up watching four episodes, until well past my bedtime. Was completely drawn in. They seem to be putting together an ensemble as well, and they're all solid. The lady ex-drop-trooper actually looks like she could handle herself in a brawl.

Thanks, maryrose. As historically-significant as the East coast is, there is life west of the rockies.

Jack is Back, I have to put in a word for my old school, UC Irvine. As unlikely a choice as it might be given the geographical consraints, UCI has a strong Department of Biological Chemistry, and a nationally-ranked rowing program. Finished sixth in the national collegiate championship in 2019. And you can't beat the weather.

.. The reason hired hands with badges .. can snoop into every aspect of anybody's life .. is because nobody in any cubicle in government ever got hurt doing it.. We can carve that in foot-deep letters in the adamantium Gates of Hell.

No pictures fallen. Books still in the bookcases. If that was the Mojave fault again, pictures and books hit the floor somewhere

... and then leave the room. And go where? To another room, hoping the progs don't follow? I think this solution leaves something to be desired.

The original tweet has the link to the video: https://twitter.com/sotiridi/status/1128691093531516930 The tweet is part of a thread that explains that the legislature was closed for a day because of what appears to have been a fake bomb threat. National Guard and police not allowing anyone in to the legislature building until just recently. Appears to be over, and apparently a minor occurence.
