The math for commodity options should be simpler without the 0 lower bound and no asymmetric skew.

Visit to the gas station in May 2020. 
First, attendants are back:

Driver: "Fill 'er up"
Attendant: "All done, sir"
Driver: "What do I owe you?"
Attendant: "We pay you, sir. Here's $20 and we thank you for taking our gas!"

Damn. Weeks ago I meant to post my prediction that Kim Jong Un would get the virus. Followed by unification with South Korea.

Jellyfish spotted in Venice as lockdown leaves canals clear

Careful now: they are not for eating.

It will be great to visit Venice again now that the cruise ships have left port.

Apropos pizza at Piazza San Marco, the memory of Venice inspired me to commit the profanity and make one for my and ISayMoos dinner (the salami is vegan) :-)

67: more time for hobbies (e.g. train set).

Even in 1986 we knew that working from home was the future. No difference between work in free time and playing cho-cho in boss time.

It was a BBC Acorn PC.
