Beginning my 5th week of working from home. I can honestly say I'm not excited, but after discussing things with my boss, it seems that we are going to do a phased return to the office starting likely next month. Since I have blood pressure issues and asthma I'm likely one of the last to return to working from the office. While I'm actually more productive programming at home, I'm also losing out on the social contact with my co-workers.

How's it going for you?
We're still at home till further notice. I miss band practice and am more than willing to go if my other members would agree...

I need more eggs.
You should start a garden

So I've been working from home this week. My boss sent us home last Friday to do home office. Now the Bavarian government is locking things down. Only grocery stores, banks, and doctors offices are remaining open. We've all been told to stay home unless we really need to go out.

That's where it stands for us now. How is it for you?
Pretty much the same here... Got told Monday to take what I need to work from home (using Teamviewer for something I have to have access to my work pc for, backing up logs & deleting old ones since the hard drive stays at near capacity... ), most everything is shut down, restaurants are take out/delivery only. They are allowed to takeout/deliver alcohol now, which was a no no before. There are rumors of "marshal law" which I assume will just be the "Only grocery stores, banks, and doctors offices are remaining open" you mentioned. Supposedly starting Sunday. We shall see I guess.

Grocery stores are hit or miss depending on what you need, I might make another run in a bit when I go pick up food.

Be safe!!

So how's the insanity on your side of the pond?

People here are starting to get a little odd with the buying of things.

We're not too bad here technically. At this time my family isn't in direct danger. We were beginning to build up a buffer on things before everyone else so we're doing ok with that.

At work we are all prepared to work from home if needed. We'll see how it goes.
Today is peak insanity, the rodeo cancelled (no tears from me) and the mayor has declared "state of emergency." I haven't really been to any stores but I've heard you can't get toilet paper or hand sanitizer anywhere laugh1
Even band practice got cancelled Another Tounge

Y'all stay well over there!

Well his grade was good. Basically B's which I can be happy with Grin
Awesome! yay


YouTube keeps telling me that your or your band's channel has updated, but when I look there's nothing new posted. YouTube is weird.
Yeah, I think sites like that must do that to get you to generate ad revenue... No updates lately (I'm bad at being a social media marketer, maybe I should look into hiring one)


So the project I've been involved with for the last year or so finally went live this week. There have been few problems and both the customer and my boss are happy Grin. My project manager came by to tell me he's going to arrange the celebration for the go live. Which honestly I wish we would do here so I don't have to travel again Grin
Congrats!


How's things going on your end?
Some 'ol stuff here...
Landlord did paint the inside of the cabinets white and I haven't had anymore unwanted visitors...
My eldest cat (16.5yrs) had to switch to prescription wet food, so I went from filling a gravity feeder once a month, to dishing out food a few times a day (and have to pick up after they eat or it gets hard)...
Starting to feel a bit more unpacked, but I'm in the "I can't do this till i do that, I can't do that till I do this other thing, and I just don't feel like doing it" lol... managed to empty a couple more boxes though so it's getting there. (laundry drop off is awesome.)

Speaking of bugs, my eldest has a school presentation to give tomorrow. He and his team mates chose the topic, "Insects as a replacement for meat, and how it affects the climate". So I spent this evening helping him make cricket fritters. Basically we bought a bunch of dried crickets, and mixed them in a pancake batter and then fried them in oil. Then we brushed them with honey and added some toasted sesame seeds.

No, I have (will) not tried them. They are going to give them out to the teachers as samples. Yes my son did eat bugs as part of the practical portion of the presentation. He and his team made pizza with grasshoppers. He said that grasshoppers taste like nuts and so don't really go well on pizza. This coming from the boy who likes pineapple on his pizza Roll Eyes

We'll see how things go tomorrow. I hope at least that he gets a decent grade. He's put a lot of effort into it.
That is awesome!!!

As a vegetarian who doesn't eat meat because "nothing should die for me to eat" I don't think I would feel right eating bugs (no, I don't kill bugs except roaches, fleas, tics, & mosquitos, or if a biting/stinging gets into my living space) but I do think they would be a good alternative since they are plentiful. I don't think the "gross factor" would be a problem unless the insect is really ugly, like a roach or cicada.

and there's nothing wrong with pineapple on pizza!
