    Yeah, numbers there are trending in the wrong direction. My company just reopened the London office at 25% capacity two weeks ago. Today an email went out that itís work from home again until further notice.

    Honestly itís probably just as well. The whole point of working in the office in London is to go to The Lloydís insurance trading floor every morning and work deals. That requires lots of non-distanced indoor communication in a big crowded room and also that the person you want to work a deal with also actually be there and not working from home that particular day.

    You would think I have exhausted this topic, but I havenít, my life gets more complicated and I get more vegetables as I get older. This is just wrong!

    how long would it take for you to dry all of this? We have a dehydrator, but havenít used it in years. I think itís dumb. It seems to run endlessly to dehydrate three little onions. I donít see the point of that and I donít like dehydrated onions anyway.

    LOL - doesn't matter how long it would take me as I really don't think you care and, as you have said, you think it's dumb and won't do it anyway. Nice veggies, though! Looks like your dh had a very successful garden!

    Well, what's changed is that compressors have been downsized and made more efficient through electronic control. New freezers use less electricity. However, they also won't last decades like the freezers of old. My suspicion is that buying two freezers that last five years each probably burns more carbon in total than buying an old guzzler freezer that hasn't had to be replaced in 20 years. But that's me.

    NPR had a feature saying there is a shortage of new refrigerators, mostly due to Covid caused problems in the supply chain and also higher demand. That would be some bad karma to have the frig go out and then not be able to find a replacement. https://www.npr.org/2020/09/22/91524...ut-in-the-cold

    I heard on the local news an elementary school boy was sent home because he sneezed in class. He is being forced to take a covid test before he returns to school.

    Allergies? Dust? Tickle in your throat? No, it must be covid!!!!

    Meanwhile I heard on the radio in Europe students are not sent home to quarantine unless at least 3 children in the class are covid positive.

    If we had a comprehensive testing program, we could deal with this pretty easily. There are tests that provide results in a half hour, I believe.
    COVID is now the second leading cause of death in this country.

    Colorado University has reported 1200 new positive cases among students, a new record outbreak for the state. Contact tracing seems to point at large parties. Classes are now all remote learning for the next two weeks.
