With the quarantine, I’m guessing there’ll be lots of room for Elijah at most if not all Passover seders tonight. Gut yontif to my friends and reader who celebrate.
Easter is this weekend, and if Pope Francis blesses the crowd at St. Peter’s Square, there won’t be one.
The Pope is 83. He’s also non-traditional. After all, he had midnignt mass on Christmas at 9:00 PM. So if he gets up in the middle of the night to take a leak, will Easter sunrise services be held at 3:00 AM?
There are plenty of people who only go to church on Christmas and Easter. The Catholic church and any Protestant denominations that use a collection plate, should start Go Fund Me pages so they will recoup at least some of the revenue they’ll be missing at the Easter collection.
I’m not trying to minimize COVID 19. It’s awful and everyone in my household is in a vulnerable category. But keep this in mind. There aren’t a lot of tests out there, so there are a lot of people who have it or had it but survived and aren’t included in the statistics. This means there are more people affected than being reported. I thought this meant the death rate was lower than reported, but I have recently heard that deaths are being under-reported and mis-categorized as well. So, who knows?
You may have noticed that “coronavirus” is one word. I tried googling why, but even the all-knowing Google didn’t have an answer.
Solved my problem about the lawn-mower gas cap. I found the original. When it fell off the mower, it fell under the engine on the deck that houses the blade. If you’re wondering why I didn’t find it sooner, I got down on the ground to try to find a model number and serial number for the engine and the cap was hidden there. I didn’t do that earlier, because my knees make getting back up problematic.
My daughter has managed to arrange grocery deliveries from Amazon Fresh and from Shipt.com. Over and above the delivery charge, I think it’s going to cost you more than shopping multiple grocery stores from their circulars, but in this time of COVID 19, having these services does cut your exposure. Well worth it, I think. Amazon is better at being on time than Shipt is where I live, but both are very helpful. I also tried Peapod. It might be different elsewhere, but here, I can’t get a spot, even if I log on just as they add another day which is two weeks out. As it comes online, all the spots two weeks away are listed as sold out. One good thing about Peapod is you find a delivery slot first, so you don’t waste time ordering only to find you can’t get the stuff to your house.
