Excellent! I could listen to that all day.....

I had it looped and cranked up when the (naked) little woman, thinking I was elsewhere in the
cave, floated through the lounge in the rarely seen extremely impressive full dance mode,
which I now have to pretend not to have seen, to insure the little woman's self esteem
remains intact..... :lol:

Cheers Urs'

Don't forget about Adam Ratner, he has so few views on his youtube videos. I guess he likes everybody who helps out by increasing those numbers a little bit :wink:

not living a life in luxury or anything, but mrs. gravy and I are doing fine.
just spending time together with our old cat. seeing the granddaughters once in a while.
reading, listening to music, watching movies, eating good and just relaxing. 8)

I took on a part time job. 25 hours a week. gives me something to do, and a bit of extra pocket money.
working three days a week. it's ok. and, I'll still keep my early retirement check.

well, I quit that part time job. back to being fully retired. and, I'll stay that way this time. 8)

Plans are to retire in May. Moving out of the hellhole that is New England and relocating to an easier life down south. I for one plan to stay retired (i hope lol) The one thing I'll miss is being halfway between NY and Boston. The concerts have been great.

Enjoy that leisure time lads, you've earned it, at a mere 62 years, 10 months, 5 days, 23 hours old
I've got a couple of years still to go, but realistically I don't see myself being in a position to be able
to retire.....

Locally vaccine wise, the government placed pre-orders with suppliers and are awaiting
delivery.....Planning as to who gets it when is yet to be made public, although the inference
is Māori and Pacifica peoples being more susceptible will be prioritized along with the elderly,
police health and boarder workers.....

Despite our media's constant when! when! when!, and this began before any vaccine
had even been approved for use, in the main people generally appear to be waiting patiently.
Publicly Covid-19 is being contained at the boarder via isolation hotels, (64 active cases as we speak)
with no active cases in the community, so the urgency is low and there seems to be a feeling that the
longer we wait the "safer" the vaccine we get will be..... Sputnik V anyone?

Meanwhile in the USA.....

New lockdown skills for me are now writing terms and conditions, and dealing with agressive customers.

And basic calculation skills. Elementary school level, got a certificate for it too.
