Anyone aware of a specific channel for donating n95 type masks to Indian doctors and nurses on the frontline? I'm hearing awful stories of doctors having to use the same mask for a week, sick doctors treating patients, etc. No way can we get enough together in short time for the whole populace, but maybe we can get enough for the doctors, nurses and other patients?
Empress blend seems to be coming along nicely. Josh has upgraded his review from "interesting" to "good".
Melding a couple of long-standing interests, I've been playing with some herbal tea blends based on my take on the Tarot. The Empress is coming along well: hibiscus, lemon peel, dried cherries, and a touch of cinnamon, infused cold. (Cold-infused hibiscus is less astringent.) I might try a little ginger, rose hips, and hawthorn in the mix.
The system was well-designed, the people working there were happy and relaxed and well-rested, the signage was everywhere, there was a TON of excess capacity built into the system to handle anything unforeseen, and they got a slew of little things right, all the way down to having cotton balls for people allergic to bandaids. I am super impressed.
I regret to report that I missed the big neighborhood event today: a baby calf slipped his handlers at the local vet and went trotting through the neighborhood. Reports are that the wee black calf, whose name is Connor, is now back home where he belongs, and various people on Facebook are glad to learn that they weren't hallucinating.
I had some five-year-old dry peas rattling around in a box, so I chitted them all, figuring that even after all this time, I might get enough for a small planting. They all sprouted. I'm up to my neck in pea sprouts that have to go into the ground tomorrow and I'm about out of ground now. Maybe hanging baskets?
