Star date 4.25.20 2:58pm EST for what seems like day five billion of quarantine/lock down. In reality, it is only around day 41 for most here in the United States. How are you holding up?

Hello my friends, What day is it? Where is my coffee? Is the spider on the ceiling starting to talk in foreign tongues to me? I have tried to start entry number two in what I have decided to call the "Captain's log" here on my page instead of "blog" for over 48 hours. I found that every time I started, I stopped. Why?
