And if you go too far up, abstraction-wise, you run out of oxygen. Sometimes smart thinkers just don’t know when to stop, and they create these absurd, all-encompassing, high-level pictures of the universe that are all good and fine, but don’t actually mean anything at all. — Joel Spolsky
More than a Dozen Things (Northern California) June 30, 2020 – As seen on news channels, this flu season is worse than the dreaded H1N1 was in 2010. The U.S. survived. 2020 – ten years later – public health officials can agree on some preventative ideas. a) Coughing demands caution, b) Sleep – good sleep can build one’s resilience to sickness, c) Sneezing into a disposable tissue is best, d) Touching others with contaminated hands is a no-no. Be sure to was hands for at least 20 seconds with running clean water, e) Personal Hygiene is very important, f) Isolation of sick or vector people is critical, g) Medical care must be sought when symptoms first appear, h) Self-Care is now as important as ever, i) Think: Ready – Set- Go Planning and Action, j) Practice breathing techniques and exercise, k) Avoid harmful habits! l) Keep a positive attitude, and m) Think about others’ health and wellbeing (i.e. wear facial covering / masks).
” Have you examined the correlation and cause-and-effect of Covid19 and 5G transmissions? ”
5G radiation impacts specific proteins in the lungs (MBL’s), that are involved with immunity response functions. 5G radiation doesn’t “cause” Covid19 per se, although it’s very possible that it does “effect” the severity of symptoms if exposed to the virus in those areas/populations that have also been long term exposed too 5G radiation?!
It would more accurate too say/write: “Have you considered that there is a very legitimate possibility due too statistical correlation & the additional evidence of previous scientific research, between the potential severity of Covid19 symptoms & the regional areas/populations where 5G radiation is present?!”
I am pleased and looking forward to Restraining Order hearing this Tuesday morning. The victim prays that the abuser will be ordered to move out.
The latest domestic violence incidents during May and April 2020 are described first:
- “Protected person” David A. Dailey (DAD) awoke in the middle of the night – around 12:30 – with muscle cramps and coughing. He noticed that LT (Leland Terry) had turned off the house heat sometime after 10:30 p.m. on May 7, 2020. It was 52 degrees outside and the bathroom window was left open. LT persists in turning off the house heater when he goes to bed; asking no one if it is OK.
- LT violated the 6-foot distance rule on May 6, 7, 8, and 9th more than once every day. No apologies are ever offered.
- In addition to infractions of ‘social distancing’, LT does not observe other preventive measures recommended by the CDC. He rarely washes his hands, too. Never wears a mask around the house. Rarely does laundry. Does not shower every day. Sorts through the food donations from Samaritan House without washing his hands first.
- Typically, LT wakes up before his roommate TR, coughs, sneezes, and other unsanitary things while sitting on the side of his bed facing his roommate, rather than doing such behaviors in the bathroom.
- Sometime before May 7, 2020, LT cancelled two of four meals donated daily from Samaritan House. LT did so without speaking to any of his roommates. Roommate Antonio Radovan and LT are the only ones who were able to eat donated food throughout Mothers’ Day weekend.
- LT goads/urges on DAD into fighting him, saying “Hit me!” The specific dates were not recorded or logged. Roommate Tony Radovan has been a witness.
- When LT gets too close, like on May 2nd, DAD said, “Stay away from me. You stay away!”
- On Sunday, May 10, 2020, DAD found the Sunday newspaper he purchased for $3 in the trash.
- DAD is the victim of numerous passive-aggressive incidents.
- They both are relentless on their complaints of my coughing and sneezing – like I (DAD) have any control of where and when I cough and sneeze. They complained again on Thursday, May 14, 2020, of this and my passing of gas (farting), my burning of two saucepans dry of two saucepans during the last five (5) months.
- The “protected person” David Arthur Dailey, now may need more R.O.s; the latest against the spouse of Mr. Kanavao Petelo – Mrs. Katalina Petelo, who swung and hit him in the neck with her heavy metal walking cane on Monday, January 13, 2020 – in addition to the two (2) signed on Wednesday, December 12, 2019; incidentally, on Mr. Dailey’s 66th birthday.
- I (DAD) pray that the court will grant my request.
- LT was the last roommate added to this unlicensed care home. Tony Radovan became a resident before him. DAD has lived at 1561 since October 2017 (for over 2 years). Therefore, LT should be the first occupant to be moved out.
- DAD has been cleaning up after him and trying to help improve LT’s quality of life for over a year without success.
- The landlady operates 3-4 licensed care homes for the elderly and disabled. There are better places for LT to live. He is a burden and liability for his present roommates.
- I (DAD) have had several roommates since my years in college and over 25 years of marriage. LT has none of this experience and is unwilling to learn how to be a good roommate. Typically, roommates share house chores, living expenses, and help each other. This does not happen at 1561 Shoreview and the landlady is unwilling to affect changes.
- One could conclude that this viewing (sole diet) of fiction and violence on TV has adversely affected his sense of reality and aberrant behavior.
- LT typically spends his day in front of the living room TV for ten consecutive hours every day. Westerns are watched in the morning, police dramas in the afternoon, two episodes with Chuck Norris as “Texas Ranger”, and two episodes of Star Trek in the evening. Gunfire, explosions, hand-to-hand combat, and other loud disturbances are not conducive for DAD’s comedy writing.
- LT does little to support the household either by doing chores or contributing money for common household materials. LT routinely takes food and paper products belonging to others without asking or even saying thanks.
- DAD is having difficulties writing comedy at his home office. LT is more than a distraction. The latest stay-in-place state orders have made matters worse. It is tragic for DAD.
- LT is prone to violence and fighting. Episodes on May 2, April 22, March 13, February 28, January 13, and November 30 are some of the worst.
- Presentation in favor of the “Move Out Restraining Order” for Leland Terry (LT) protecting David A. Dailey (DAD) and the other three roommates as well.

So many statistics and deaths from meat processors and nursing home residents and caretakers and first responders. This should not happened… where is OSHA!?! OSHA has not issued any citations or penalties.
This needs to change.
Washington, D. C. – Good Friday, April 10, 2020 – HURD IMMUNITY MUST BE PREVALENT IN AMERICANS’ ANTIBODIES – In order to get America back to work and back to school, medical models and substantial statistics must be the basis for the “re-0pening” of business and a new-normal.
St. Pope John Paul the Second
Even Dr. Jerome Adams, the present kiss-ass national Surgeon General, would agree with public health officials and modelists. A body of evidence, data supporting suppression of the Covid19 Virus, and newly-developed treatments and preventive measures, are essential before the Executive Branch can cheerlead efforts to restore the country and world-leading economy.

Even if you haven’t heard it enough, we’re going to repeat it again: Stay at home. Practice social distancing. Flatten the curve.
But an unintended consequence of our efforts to slow a pandemic and keep our communities healthy is a real problem: loneliness and social isolation. As state and local governments issue quarantines and stay-at-home orders, many of us are living a new normal without in-person social interaction — and that can take a toll on our mental health.
Do not get this bug. Not as deadly as a flu-bug, but bedbugs are a bitch!
Making matters worse, researchers have found that people who don’t feel connected to others over the long term are more likely to catch colds, experience depression and live shorter lives. One study even calculated the health risks of social isolation as equivalent to smoking 15 cigarettes a day. Even before the pandemic, loneliness was already widespread, with a national survey showing that more than 70 percent of young people and millenials and half of seniors felt lonely.
So how can we combat this new — hopefully short-term — reality of social distancing and isolation? Here are some tips to improve our health and stay connected.
Make a plan to connect with friends and family
Before the pandemic, many of us probably took for granted regular social interactions with our loved ones. Connecting could be more casual, and there were fewer concerns about meeting face-to-face. But with social distancing and sheltering orders, it’s become a lot more difficult, if not impossible and even unsafe.
Yet, simply saying you’ll stay in touch and actually connecting with loved ones, whether it’s over the phone, video or some other technology, are very different — and you may forget to find time. That’s why it can be so important to make a plan to connect with your friends and family to ensure you’re staying in touch to stave off loneliness. Just like in elections, where studies have shown that making a plan to vote increases the likelihood that you’ll show up to cast your ballot, be sure to make a regular plan to connect.
Plan a virtual happy hour
The coronavirus pandemic has spawned a new phenomenon: the rise of the virtual happy hour. People across the country have taken to FaceTime, Zoom, Google Hangouts and other platforms as a welcome way to share a drink (non-alcoholic drinks are always welcome!) with friends while we social distance.
- Pick your video platform (Zoom, Google, Skype, etc)
- Set a specific time for the event
- Encourage your friends to bring a drink of their choosing
- Make a plan for the conversation
- If needed, gently guide the conversation
But watch out for “Zoom bombing”
Another phenomenon — and really unfortunate unintended consequence — of our new social distancing is the “Zoom Bomb.” As millions have shifted to working and learning from home, the popular video conferencing platform Zoom has become the go-to software for remote business, school and other activities.
The increased use of the platform has become a ripe target for hackers, who have exploited vulnerabilities in the software and taken over group video chats with hateful or obscene content. The FBI recently issued a warning that malicious actors could steal personal information over Zoom.
Start or join a book club
Book clubs are cropping up everywhere during the coronavirus pandemic. Although many libraries have already closed, digital books are plentiful, so if you’re an avid reader (or not-so-avid, but want to become one), starting or joining a book club with your friends and family can be a great way to stay connected.
Not sure where to begin? Bustle has you covered with 10 tips on starting a digital book club.
Just want to join an existing book club? You’re in luck. Lots of virtual book clubs — each with unique themes and book choices — are welcoming new members across the globe. Here are ten suggested book clubs from Time. Or, you can join the “Quarantine Book Club” where you can chat directly with authors over Zoom.
Look out for those most at risk during this time
Even though we personally may feel isolated or lonely right now, there are others who may need our help, too. They are people in our community who could be suffering from mental health issues or chronic illnesses, our elderly neighbors who need basic necessities like groceries or medication or someone who is low-income or facing financial difficulties.
If you can, check on them and offer your assistance. They are feeling isolated and anxious too. They may not have internet access or family members who can assist. Here are some additional tips to help communities experiencing loneliness from AARP.

North America – March 12, 2020, 12:50 p.m. HST – MORE UNITED STATES GO ROGUE REGARDING THE COVID-19 ISSUES –
Now we are past the blame game. Of course the communist Chinese started this new flu virus and the executive branch of the U.S. government cannot seem to manage associated issues and contributing factors. As a result, state, local, school systems, universities, sports associations, and poor people are making bad decisions.
It now goes beyond panic and ignorance. Decisionmakers typically do NOT make good decisions when under pressure. After weeks of denial, then blame and anger, many impulsive decisions are being made forcing Americans into very unhappy and more unhealthy situations.
The Washington News published an excellent article Wednesday about this phenomenon.
All sorts of hotel chains, non-profit organizations, and other surprising sources are taking it upon themselves to publish policies and procedures given the lack of accurate and useful information coming directly from federal agencies chartered to take care of the interests of U.S. citizens and visitors. Now Disneyland is closed.
When is this craziness going to come to a halt?!?
Do not tread on me . . .
Be well. May God bless US and humans, particularly in Italy and the United States!!
