Save Lives - Stay At Home

You Can Save Lives - Be Smart & Continue To Stay At Home

Today, the US Virgin Islands have relaxed the "Stay At Home" order to the "Safer At Home" protocol.

I had to walk to the grocery store and one thing I noticed was the increase in traffic. It seemed almost the same as during "normal" times. I was shocked to see a young mother going down the road with her little one in a pushchair (no masks either). Why? Yes, it is a nice day but stay home so in the future you can have more nice days together safely. Aargh !

Just because you can now go bowling or get a massage, doesn't mean you have to. Stay safe by social distancing for a little bit longer. Make it better/safer for everyone.

Last Wednesday, April 29th, USVI Governor Albert Bryan Jr. announced Wednesday he is implementing a “Safer At Home” order that will become effective on Monday, May 4.

The Governor also said he is issuing an executive order that will detail the phased reopening of non-essential businesses and the guidelines to which they will be subject. The intention of the “Safer At Home” order is to begin the phased-reopening of the local economy in preparation for returning access to the outside world.

The transition will be managed according to a five-tiered system
  • Red – Total quarantine
  • Orange – Stay-At-Home order (in effect through 6 a.m. Monday, May 4)
  • Yellow – Safer At Home order (effective May 4)
  • Blue – Open Doors (hotel reservations and leisure guest bookings permitted; restaurants open for seating – anticipated June 1)
  • Green – New Normal

Covid-19 Lockdown

“It’s better to be six feet apart right now than six feet under”
- Governor Gretchen Whitmer, Michigan

Good point.

Keep it up, folks! Maintain the restrictions. It's hard on everyone but it is for the good of everyone. Don't be selfish and remember to be kind and smile, even with your mask on :)

Wil Wheaton puts down in words what the majority us feel. Please read.

April 2 - National Burrito Day

Celebrate
 National Burrito Day


It is said that the name burrito originated because its appearance was similar to packs and bedrolls that the donkey used to carry.

This is a flavorful day to enjoy if you are self-isolating. There are many how-to videos on YouTube. Jump in and experiment. You'll be glad you did :)

Happy Pi Day - March 14th

Today is PI Day



PiDay.org states on their website:
Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th (3/14) around the world. Pi (Greek letter “ π ”) is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant — the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter — which is approximately 3.14159. Pi Day is an annual opportunity for math enthusiasts to recite the infinite digits of Pi, talk to their friends about math, and to eat Pie.

I found #4 on their pi-facts interesting:
The record for reciting the most number of decimal places of Pi was achieved by Rajveer Meena at VIT University, Vellore, India on 21 March 2015. He was able to recite 70,000 decimal places. To maintain the sanctity of the record, Rajveer wore a blindfold throughout the duration of his recall, which took an astonishing 10 hours! Can’t believe it? Well, here is the evidence.

What variety of pie will you be having today? When I go to the store this afternoon I'll check out the bakery section.

Fun with numbers

I love numbers that do cool things.

When I look at my clock and it says


it always makes me smile.

Here are some interesting things that happen today, 2 February 2020.

Today's date is an 8-digit palindrome that works whether written in DD/MM/YYYY or MM/DD/YYYY.

A palindrome is a sequence that reads the same backward as forward, such as "kayak" or "never odd or even".

So... today is
0202 2020

Something else of interest is it is day 33 and there are 333 days left in the year.

Of course, it is also Groundhog Day and Superbowl Sunday and perhaps, your birthday. :)

So it goes!
