Monday Musings - July 13, 2020

1. It is the second Monday of July. Time is sweeping past quickly. Tax Day 2020 is in two short days.

2. I can confirm that the flooring project is complete and we also updated the stairs. The place looks great! Now onto the next project. 

3. The quote of the week is from the German Chancellor Angela Merkel: "We are seeing at the moment that the pandemic can't be fought with lies and disinformation, and neither can it be with hatred and agitation." 

4. Apparently, if you can't change the truth you need to stifle those who tell the truth. Seems the administration is trying to silence Dr Fauci.

5. How well is the U.S. doing in the face of coronavirus. See the graph from this morning's New York Times.

6. Playing racquetball on an outdoor court at 6 AM really adds a new dimension to the game. 

7. I want to go on vacation--but there is no where to go, safely.

8. Today in History. On July 13, 1985, at Wembley Stadium in London, Prince Charles and Princess Diana officially open Live Aid, a worldwide rock concert organized to raise money for the relief of famine-stricken Africans. Continued at JFK Stadium in Philadelphia (where Joan Baez famously kicked it off by telling the crowd "this is your Woodstock, and it's long overdue") and at other arenas around the world, the 16-hour “superconcert” was globally linked by satellite to more than a billion viewers in 110 nations. In a triumph of technology and good will, the event raised more than $125 million in famine relief for Africa.
