Three beautiful days and we spent them working in the yard. Shovel work is way more exercise than going to a walk, but we did get our exercise each day.

Cool and overcast,but not raining, so we got out for another walk. 8200 steps. 3.53 miles in 1 hr., 21 mins.

Absolutely gorgeous day, not a cloud in the sky. IT will be even warmer later in the day, but getting out early means fewer other people for us to dodge. 7600 steps. 3.27 miles in 1 hr, 11 mins.

In New York City, the financial center of the US empire, the subway barely works. It's grossly underfunded, falling apart, and literally catches on fire with people on board. And public transportation is even worse in every other part of the US (if it exists)

Meanwhile in China:

See what's happening in China in ten years.

Well, the rain finally stopped, so we got out again for a walk. Nice, not too cool. 7200 steps. 2.95 miles in 1 hr., 6 mins.

Some great thoughts from SF author and futurist @karlschroeder.

"People are very busy working out what has to be in place for us to be able to reopen the economy. What interests me is the question of what would have to be in place for us to successfully NEVER reopen the economy."

How do we make Free Software more approachable, easier to use and more effective? That is the discipline of User Experience design.

@emacsen and @cwebber interview UX expert Máirín Duffy about Free Software interfaces and more.

@cwebber @emacsen I loved the latest Libre Lounge. And I particularly liked the perspective on writing software that works for users. We have a local software shop called Menlo Innovations that calls what they do "Hi-Tech Anthropology" because it all starts with understanding the needs and workflow of the customer before the coding begins.

Well, today was overcast, but no rain and not too cool, so we got out for a good walk. 9250 steps. 3.76 miles in 1hr. 26 mins.

it is good to remember "reopening in phases" is only done so a few folks can see if anybody in the first phase dies

With our second walk, today's total is now 12,500 steps. 5.19 miles in 1 hr. 59 minutes.

Well, we got in a second walk largely because Cheryl was tired of translating German text into readable English. 5500 steps this time. 2.3 miles in 52 minutes.

It was a gorgeous morning, warm and sunny, but sandwiched between thunderstorms, so we got out early and seized the opportunity. Might have walked a little longer, but the sky became overcast and we didn't want to get caught out in the rain two days in a row. About 7000 steps this time. 2.89 miles in 1 hr, 7 mins.
