oh boy apparently I'm a day late and dollar short to this idea
It struck me this morning how much like our artificially limited supply of new housing is mirrored by the dramatic results of the semiconductor shortage.
Made a long thread about it
Gentle reminder that blood product supply is dangerously low and we could really use some of yours.
Electric Car Battery Monitoring
This is a very interesting service.
You sign up and you can get a one-time report, or a monthly report, that tells you how healthy an EV's battery is, as compared to other models of similar age and mileage.
I think it would be very useful for used EV shoppers, and possibly useful for owners too. The reports are only as good as the data they gather, so I signed up for monitoring.
negative for covid and flu.
Still feel like crap
covid risk evaluation
I was talking with my physician about our experiences in the pandemic.
We have cancer patients who think they'll be fine and refuse to vaccinate or mask.
And on the other end of the scale there are folks who are in their 30s, fully vaxxed with no risk factors, asking for doctors notes to allow them to avoid working in an office. Whose health has suffered from excessive covid avoidance.
Anyway, we really screwed up public health messaging.
It seems we all had a rough week, right? I'm trying to focus on the positives.
1) I can work remotely today and be with my kids, we are all safe and healthy
2) My wife and I are getting along better this week, having resolved some problems, mostly about our new dog.
3) I found some free snow tires for the minivan yesterday
4) I have a trip planned in 5 weeks without the kids.
14 East was shut down due to an overturned semi truck

My birthday plans today were scuttled by a surprise quarantine from school for my 4th grade daughter, so I guess it'll be a daddy daughter day - which is fine actually.
Both kids started their vaccine series this week, work is nuts and we're having a bit of high-level turnover, and I'm now in my forties.
Yet I feel pretty good, all things considered.
Looking back at others' tweets it's clear that AAPS board members are specifically talking about 4 days of in-person school and a fifth day virtually. No timeline on how or when that would happen.
For my family, virtual school just didn't happen. My son's needs make him almost uniquely unable to do school virtually. My neurotypical daughter struggled greatly as well.
At work: Oncology. In my free time: riding and fixing bikes, taking photos. (Not much free time as a father of two)
