COVID-19 Wk 64: Seventy Percent

Oregon’s governor has said she will lift most COVID restrictions in place once we hit 70% of the population with at least one vaccine shot. That looks like it could happen in the next 3-4 weeks if all goes to plan. My one and only comment about that is YIPPEE!!!!! Strawberry Season It’s strawberry season…

Instead of writing about COVID (weeks 62 & 63 by the way) I am going to take a moment to acknowledge how my life drastically changed twenty years ago this week. Mia and I met through Match.com. This was long before apps on your phone were a thing and you had to log in via…
