    I found out that it wasn't a back problem, I needed hip replacement surgery! I had the left hip done three weeks ago and I'm doing pretty good, I'll probably go back to work and then get the right hip done. Life keeps getting in the way of fun!

    More time on the layout. Both my part time (I failed Retirement 101) and my volunteer gigs have been paused indefinitely, so now I can start a project and work through to completion, a rare luxury1

    Well! We won't be headed out to Sturgis, S. Dakota today. Hope any that do go have a good time and leave it there.

    I am reading and hearing news reports that now some of these conference software packages are being hacked for access to user computers.

    The local courts us Zoom for video hearings. So, there could be a lot of info there.

    I'm not too worried, nearly everything on my computer can be found on a dozen porn sites...

    It affected it a lot, actually. Since I had more time, I could start doing something new, like playing the guitar and composing some music. I also started chatting with different people via https://wickedlist.com/. I could find some good friends there as well. Well, I can't say pandemic changed my life completely. In some ways it definitely did, but I try to find positive side in everything.

    Can you believe that we've already started recording video segments for our Christmas Eve service? In a "normal" year, we only ("only") had to plan and organize Christmas Eve and then show up for the service. But with COVID, we have to record everything far enough in advance, with just a few people in the building at a time, so that our editor and sew it all together in time to post it in December 24th. Church is a LOT more work this way.
