    Things are changing and with that people are changing a lot. As if many ae going crazy or getting agressiv and more selfish. As I drive every day 53 km one way to work and one way back home, the way many are driving is frightening. For good reason on a part of the Autobahn is speed restriction to 100 and 80 km/h. Many drive at the speed limit 80 km/h with 110 km/h and where is 100 km/h as if there is no speed limit in a construction side. I have not seen a speed control fo rmore than a year there.

    Sounds like things are tough all over. Girlfriend and I went to range today. There was a guy there tgat had had a stroke and this was his first time out to shoot with tge left hand. His dominant right hand was not working . I talked to him some and tried to encourage him. His wife and grandson were there and grandson was shooting too. The man used to be a winner in matches. Amy girlfriend is going to get her Concealed Carry Deadly Weapon Permit, and she is practicing. She improved today. 45 acp and she can handle it!

    Number 13 for OlChemist to show.

    LOL, I drive every day to work until we close down like in March or not. Who knows.

    I really should learn to let me not get upset. Mom got the third letter of the energy supplier. Due to the bureaucreacy we have three contracts. One for electricity for the house, one for gas and a third for the pump sump which is joint instituiton for the semidetached houses.


    Third price increase letter within ten days but this one calls a price increase of 127,77%. I hope that I get an answer that they made an error and it is only a 25% increase else I may consider a criminal complaint of § 157 Strafgesettzbuch (StGB); Usury.

    My imponderable for the day: My anti-GMO neighbor health nut neighbor just headed into his house with a big package of meat substitute burgers. A year ago he offered to help me unload my groceries and then harangued me about some tortillas that were made with GMO products. He did ten minutes on Franken-food and how I was going to turn into the Walking Dead after eating my tacos. I'm thinking he completely missed the genetically modified yeast that makes the heme to make these fancy soybean patties taste like beef....

    Not that I have many problems with GMO plants. We've been modifying plants ever since we turned a wild grass into the hearty, wide ranging and nutritious grain corn or took a mildly toxic wild tuber and made it into the calorie generating powerhouse potato. Native people have been prolific and wildly successful modifiers of plants. And the pollen from our selectively breed crops have wrought havoc on their genetic forebears. Now, factory farm monoculture isn't wise. Or turn those tools on the human genome and I'm much less sanguine about our judgement.

    Over here it is often said that services in the US are far better than what we have.

    That sounds like a job done by low payed people with just the motivation to work with low readiness to perform.

    If I could figure out how to manage payment, I'd consider calling one of these 20 something kids working in our production area and offering them $35 to shop for me. I'd rather my money go to someone I know.

    Subs, I've used Walmart delivery on occasion. Down here their drivers are independent contractors. At least here, that seems to be a problem. Both of my orders were delayed because the store called drivers that never showed. On my last order, they called 5 drivers before one showed.

    I wonder if there has been some issue with the payment system. Unlikely any other delivery service I've used down here, you don't determine the tip amount before the service is rendered. You aren't even given the option of tipping until after your order is delivered. I wonder how many people never respond to the email asking that they log in and tip.

    It's a shame because Walmart, unlike the other stores' services used store employees to shop. They did much much better on filling the order and substitutions. The bags weren't so over packed that they broke before the groceries got to my front step. They had mild Bueno frozen flame roasted green chiles, which can excuse a multitude of sins. Unlike a certain online retailer, the canned goods haven't been -- near as I can figure -- thrown across the warehouse at the bags or used to chock the wheels of the fork lift.

    On my last order from said online retailer, one can was nearly folded in half and was leaking! They also have an incomprehensible system for determining what items will be packed with ice. I got an order where cheese, ground beef, sour cream, hot dogs, and frozen veggies were thrown all in one thin paper bag and given to a driver, who then tossed them in his trunk and drove around in the August Texas heat for 2 hrs. The hamburgers were cooked enroute, LOL. But, a block of Velveeta and a bag of chocolate chips, in the same order, were each carefully wrapped in insulation with a frozen bottle of water and packed their own large paper bags.

    LOL! If they glow in the dark I will pass. I worry that they are rushing this vaccine without thinking about a year or so down the road-what will the consequences be.

    Rose, you don't want to use Walmart delivery either. My son was trying to use it, and he said two orders were late, then delayed, then canceled. He won't be using them again. He's sticking with doordash or whoever it is.

    A few days ago, we had record heat for this time of year, now it's cold. Cold for us. It won't even hit 60 tomorrow and Thurs. morning is supposed to be in the upper 30s. Brrrrr!!

    Moderna's vaccine is coming in with a preliminary effectiveness of 94%. Whoo who!

    Moderna's technology draws on their MERS vaccine research. The refrigeration requirements for the Moderna vaccine are much less rigorous; well within the reach of most countries pharmaceutical distribution requirements. Back in Oct, Moderna said they're not going to enforce their Ip during the pandemic and work on licensing after the crisis. This should clear the deck for cooperation with other producers to make their vaccine.

    Just looke for some numbers

    Inhabitants of your county 2.1 Million with 1.200 infections a day
    My federal state, 18 Million, 2.700 infections per day.
    My city 225.000, 70 infections per day.

    We have closed down non professional sport, bars, restaurants, tattoo shops and so on.

    I'll have 850 m to the next supermarket, better say two of them, EDEKA and Netto. They are just on the opposite side of the street. About 600m m further down the street there are the next two, Aldi Süd and Lidl. Each of the two supermarkets have a drugstore attached. Bakaries are at the two locations too. At the first location is a Pharmacy. Driving to the other side within 2600 m there are two more supermarkest, another Aldi Süd and REAL. There are two DIY stores. Halfway there is another Pharmacy.

    To the center of the City I may have 2200 m but I don't go there.

    Thos who party without distance and the spectator crowds at sport events are the greatest risks for getting infected. But as I can watch at school, those over 17 and under 25 are those who believe they are immortal.

    Stay safe. I am planning for the time after Corona.
