78. Moderna's news is good

mRNA [$]\rightarrow[$]  Moderna -- nice. 
Let's hope "what is mRNA-1273?" one day becomes a Jeopardy answer!
When capitalism is destroyed who is going to find the vaccine for the next (A.k.a. final) pandemic?

The circus, which dates back to 1870 and has one of the oldest big tops in the world, was set to open in Galway in March, but was put on hold due to the pandemic.

What is home without Plumtree's Potted Meat?

With it an abode of bliss.

my robots kept working hard under the whole corona episode, without complaining even once. Dont worry I programed them to rest on Sunday (so inside the EU/Eøs regulative). My grass cutter robot, my vacuum robot, and my house cleaning robot.  

based on observing my robots from time to time I am not very afraid of AI taking over the world any time soon. My grass cutter robot was trapped by a vegan earth rat (vånd, Arvicola amphibius) the other day, but I rescued it. It is now out working again, after I fed it karma-photons from my solar panels.

Where can I get hold of more types of robots? any new useful robots? any good robots yet that can scrape and paint old wood houses ?

Sure, why not?

Finally, fully vegetarian and pumping iron since January. So have dropped 10 pounds, ~ 5 kilos.

Continue to decrease steadily, but no loss given default here.  I think my bond may actually rise! 

Anyone with comments about before - say whatever you want. I am comfortable in my own skin and I have skin in my own game. : )

However, I am happy that I can now wear the same jeans that I still have from an era not too long ago. 

Side note: Photos are neither necessary, nor sufficient, but they can be entertaining for a little while. And then ashes to dust!

Good luck to all - whether you are gaining, losing, or stable - stay safe, stay healthy. 

Peace, love, and happiness TS

You're boiling that water, track!

I'm stretching rubber instead of pumping iron. I'm not really a fan of muscles.
The long narrow ones are really great to keep the feminine chest in shape/place :-)

"Would you like me to give you one?" would have been better.
