    At least using European Amazon the Bowmore small Batch single Malt whisky that I order is delivered the next day. I'f I'm feeling really brave I occasionally order a Cask strength Ardbeg Corrywracken at 57.1% which is truly a whisky of and for the gods.
    I don't have to deal with state liquor stores that think the green labeled Jack Daniels is a drinkable whiskey. and don't carry any of the better boozes, No cask strength scottish Island malts, no good lowland malts, with tequila and mescal no Reserva della Familia, Hennessy cognac, or any of th really outstanding Bourbons.

    Where do floridians have to drive to get 1st class boose? Around Lake City I can get Jack Daniels everywhere, Silver select is a lot harder to find, and Pappy von Winkel family reserve 20 year old is impossible to find. Is the selection in Georgia better?

    Must be nice to have your own private holodeck hooked to a fully-symmetrical petabit quantum pipe.

    All I get's a window that shows some part, usually of the face, of whoever the program thinks is speaking. The others are just thumbnails. With varying amount of grain and/or lag for all.

    Currently debating with myself.... the only chocolate left in the house is the Easter chocolate hidden for the kids.

    Would you eat it??

    Full disclosure I do have cocoa so I could bake some brownies... but man the work required to do that...

    Realizing that I have a desktop with two screens, an echo show, my smartphone, a surface pro and my laptop from work all running on my desk right now.

    Dire times indeed. Bake the brownies but forewarn the children....Mr Easter Bunny may get laid off and consequently his chocolate bunny cousins may not make it out of the factory this year.

    Go to Market Square Liquors, in Tallahassee. Talk to the owner or the manager. They won’t necessarily have the best stuff out on a shelf.

    I left grad school in Seattle and flew to visit my parents in Chicago on March 6. Even though I probably had coronavirus in the unrecognized wave in January, I immediately went into quarantine. Aside from everyone else, my MIL is a cancer survivor with a secondary autoimmune disease in poor health and we needed to create a bubble around her. I was within sight of my freedom on Day 13 when Illinois went into statewide lockdown. My doctor-mother is now treating COVID-19 patients who need dialysis subsequent to multiple organ failure. Having completed my 14 days, I moved in with my in-laws so that I can actually spend some time with Mr. Rosa.

    My fatal error: I flew home instead of driving. My car and all the scuba gear in it are in Washington state, so it's going to be a while before I get in the water again.

    I've been doing a lot of sitting inside reading. I'm working on exam prep for the Certified Associate in Project Management and plan to hit up the Information Governance Professional next. I added a fifth class to my quarter starting next week and added a few summer courses so that I'll be done with grad school early.

    If the world has not coughed itself to death before August, then I should be in a good position to get a job in Gainesville and move to the caves.
