Just to a very limited SUBSET.
So here is the kicker.
I heard from somebody who is IN HOSPITAL — at New Hampshire’s FAMED ‘Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center‘ (DHMC) in Lebanon. A research & teaching hospital no less. They don’t have enough tests. You have to meet the age or employment criteria or have symptoms. IF not, you can’t have it. That is STUPID. That is crazy.
I heard that New York is now doing a MILLION tests a week.
Well, a million tests would just about cover ALL of New Hampshire.
But, we don’t have enough tests!
And NOBODY is mentioning this.
I meet the over-60 criteria. So, I can get one.
I don’t want one. Don’t see the point. Right now, I have no symptoms.
They can tell me I am negative & I could be positive 24-hours later. I could have caught it by going for the test.
Would be SLIGHTLY more interested in the antibody test. But, even that, right now, would be a waste. I really haven’t had any symptoms. So, very UNLIKELY I had it without I realizing it. Given my age & poor heath, I would have KNOWN it even if I had a touch. So, I am not going to deprive a more worthy person from getting a test.
But, thought YOU should know.

But, it was ALL empty or NOT set up.
We just saw two folks, a mother & daughter — & I drove up/down North & South Main St. as well as Loudon Road.
‘Red Arrow’ diner had picnic tables outside but was only doing takeout — and they were NOT busy.
I was sure (that my friend) Alex Ray’s “Common Man” would not only be all set-up, BUT BUSY. I was wrong. It was empty. Not set-up for outdoor dining. That makes no sense. They have a huge car park ideal for it.
This week, from what I see, will be kind in terms of weather. No heavy rain. Doesn’t look good.
Stopped by “Dominick’s“, in Chichester, on the way back. Another joint with a HUGE car park. EMPTY with a sign on the door that said “CLOSED”.
I was amused by her (and yes, it is a ‘her’) message on the sign.
Does SHE realize the coded message that was in THE SONG?
‘Help from my friends‘. HHHmmmm. SMILE.
I am sure. That would definitely help. SMILE.
I noticed that there has been a MARKED drop-off in new Doodles over the last 2-months.
Makes no sense. Google’s designers most likely all work from home — virus or no virus. So, the ‘stay-at-home’ should not have had any impact.
But, something is up.
Just wanted to make sure that you were aware.
Now you know.
Check Category ‘Google Doodle’.
So, what was Google THINKING?
Yes, Google as we all know has a long and storied history of doing clever April 1st jokes.
Yes, we all know about the ongoing pandemic. Yes, I worked out that Google MIGHT refrain from joking around this year — given the gravity of the situation.
So, it would have been BEST not to do ANYTHING.
Do the Google Doodle for her the next day. That would have been better.
This was STUPID — Google.
Say it after I. “This was STUPID Google”.
