    CoVid19, how does it affect you or Sim community?

    Great suggestion and a nice pull Fr.Bill. I still have and regularly listen to your recording of the Dorian Toccata and Fugue in D minor, BWV 538. I have a fair collection of pipe organ music, enough to last all day for sure, but I never think to look up some live performances at YouTube. Best...

    CoVid19, how does it affect you or Sim community?

    In my area of Southern California many stores have instituted a two-unit maximum on high-demand items. That said it is still a matter of timing. Here in Orange County it seems to be getting better for paper products, canned food , Dairy, meat, fruit and vegetables day by day but disinfectants...

    Triage, the separation and treatment of patients by likelihood of survival, is what the military does on a battlefield, and what emergency services do after major natural disasters such as earthquakes where there are many who have suffered traumatic injuries, and hospitals have limited space and...

    Although I originally understood little of the story as a child, I remember wondering what he was going to eat in that devastated World. From Wikipedia: "Witness Mr. Henry Bemis, a charter member in the fraternity of dreamers. A bookish little man whose passion is the printed page, but who is...

    CoVid19, how does it affect you or Sim community?

    Not quite. We are in the laundry business, and the supplier is a laundry supply with stock for sale to those in the laundry business. The butcher is a friend that we hooked up with a sweet deal on a washer and dryer set when there was no emergency other than his wife's washer and dryer were out...

    On the road again in Phoenix AZ. We arrived at a location with two adjacent large Marriot hotels around 6 pm, and there were a total of about 12 cars in the shared parking lot. What was strange about it is that this time of year it is usually difficult to find rooms due to Baseball spring...

    CoVid19, how does it affect you or Sim community?

    Fr Bill, Have you contacted the motel? Might be worth a call. Perhaps under the current national emergency the cancellation penalties have been relaxed. I feel your pain, I practically live in Marriot hotels in rooms we book weeks ahead of time to take advantage of employee rates which usually...

    CoVid19, how does it affect you or Sim community?

    How does it affect my life? As for worrying about catching a disease, I install commercial laundry systems in apartment complexes and high-rise buildings, hotels, and military bases so yes, we come into contact with many people. Some accounts have card or credit card systems which require add...

    Reentry: An orbital simulator

    Yep, that looks very interesting. As a ten year old in Southern California, where at the time there was a large Aerospace community, the Gemini program taught me how to use an alarm clock to get up early enough to watch the launches on my hand me down 1956 Zenith Television (our family's first...

    Thanks to all here at FSdeveloper.

    Wow Fr. Bill. What a coincidence. I just finished washing the dishes from by best spicy pork shoulder curry ever, inspired by talking about it here. While I was prepping the vegetables I was listening to my playlist of pipe organ music, I was just in the mood. The first tune which came on was...

    Thanks to all here at FSdeveloper.

    OK... Click on the link below :) I should probably revise the (recipe) content. I have made curries dozens of times since I posted the page (by request), however the recipe is a good basic primer. Over a couple of years I have collected a variety of curry powders and seasonings, (they are not...
