There's a few glimmer of hope peepholes for 2021, this promising vaccine for one. The other pending glimmer is a new president, which Trump is fighting tooth & nail against. Guilliani should have just stayed a 9/11 hero, he's now the frontman for the most absurd election in U.S. History. I shouldn't say that, it … Continue reading Getting Through 2020
Biden/Harris won!!! We still need to deal with the Trump sized tantrum to follow, along with the lawsuits he's threatened. Even Fox News seems to have accepted the results. Of course, Trumpers are crying fraud and I have to wonder if that's what got him there in the first place? Bullying people at the polls, … Continue reading The Election is Over!!
To 5.8 since another birthday rolled around. Despite COVID and the elections, it was a great bday weekend with clear skies and nice outdoor dining weather. I flew to Monterey for lunch, it almost seemed like 2019 again? Then the Honey Boo Boo elections struck this week with HBB type tantrums to follow. It's not … Continue reading I’ve upgraded

In March when everything shut down, quickly I started planning October and pre-paying to have something to look forward to in our supposed 2 week shut down. Cancelled:Weekend 1 - Hometown Fair and my 40th HS reunionWeekend … Continue reading October 2020 Wrap up

This one was … Continue reading Back brought me down
Just when it seems things might get a little normal, there's a twist. It's been easier (and mandatory) to eat at home since March. The downtown restaurants have been open for awhile with outside seating and it's really nice. It makes it look like a European village, something we won't be seeing soon. We ventured … Continue reading 2020, Year of the Absurd
Went to San Jose yesterday, in the morning you could still smell smoke. By the afternoon it seemed to be clearing out. The fires are near Santa Cruz and in the hills in between San Jose and the Central Valley. Almost 30 years ago we lived in Oakland for those fires, what I remember the … Continue reading NorCal Smoke clearing & Random Stuff
Private Pilot Instrument rating (IFR) training for an older female pilot during COVID.
So glad to have that over with! The studying was all consuming but it certainly got me through these past few months. This is the first morning I haven't had to wake up to take a timed practice test for the past few weeks. This was for my Instrument Rating for flying, it was the … Continue reading I Passed!!
It would be nice to come out of this COVID ordeal with some kind of accomplishment besides being able to cut & dye my own hair. The instrument rating test (IFR) is scheduled for Thursday morning, kind of a now or never thing. I'm tired of studying every day, it's time to just do it. … Continue reading Over Studying
