And now a change of subject to take our minds off the pandemic:

Several weeks (maybe even months ago) I suggested that overdrive.com purchase a specific EBook. It arrived 2 days ago so I've been binge reading for 2 days and am only 46% through it. Good timing (the book's arrival) for someone in isolation.

My skill set means I get free books for life. I will never run out of reading material. I have lots to choose from during the pandemic.

Here's something. When I try to look up Scroogiell from the Profile Page, it says "User Unknown". Can anyone else search for him successfully? Am I missing something in my typing>

I had a similar issue with Toshea. Without caps, that's someone in New Orleans so I was confused.

Me neither. Overdrive has enough to keep me going forever.

Now I have to ask what a skill set is in this context.

Here's a graphic update on the state of COVID-19 spread in BC. The graph shows that, although the numbers are increasing daily, the rate of increase has flat-lined, remaining steady, even reducing somewhat, for several days now. I think we can consider this to be, at least, not a bad thing!

I magnified the Percent data 3X to make it more obvious. Gotta fix it so the Percent column reflects the true numbers.

Now we drill down into the Southern BC Interior. Not a lot of cases yet, 62 as of yesterday. The first local case, 100 km to the east of me, was reported a few days ago. As you can see, the data is all over the place as we still have a relatively small data set. Can't make any deductions yet.

I have some interesting news, though:

There are a few groups in the Kootenay Boundary region who have taken on the task of producing both face masks and ventilators. A facebook group is producing masks in their homes and businesses, while a group of both private citizens and engineering, printing (and other) companies are 3D printing masks.

 

DIYers and engineers, also in the Kootenay Boundary region, have gotten together to design and prototype a low cost, easily manufactured ventilator which will be, in all likelihood, manufactured somewhere in BC.

So, did Sharon do the costume, too? She told me she was making masks at home. Thought mebbe she made this one. :)
