Just a quick post re: my health and current plans

Nothing fancy or entertaining this evening. I just want to let you know, as I sit back in the recliner, that I am safe and well.

Though my State of Texas is opening up, which I think is a very good thing, I intend to remain hunkered down under a strict self-quarantine until either a safe and effective vaccine is available or testing shows that I have developed an immunity to this KungFuFlu.

If I was younger and more healthy I’d be out and about as soon and as often as possible. BUT I’m elderly with underlying health conditions. And that puts me in the one segment of society most likely to die from this disease.

THEREFOR, I intend to lay very low and avoid this sickness until it passes, or until a vaccine is ready, or until I’ve developed immunity.

Leaving the sidebar

Recently there have been links over on the left sidebar of this website to Roscoe’s Journal and my Micro-blog. Both the personal journal and micro-blog were enjoyable side projects which I shall no longer pursue.

Since I’ve rejoined Twitter, the original micro blog, there’s no reason for me to spend time (and money) on another. And the work I used to do over on Roscoe’s Journal could just as easily be done here on Roscoe’s Story.

There is a photo-oriented #SevenTwoProject recently begun over at Roscoe’s Journal which will end there when I shut down that blogging platform, but will return here at Roscoe’s Story.

This is a change that will save me both time and money, and will simplify my Internet presence. It’s a good thing.

New Look for the Old Blog

More needs to be done behind the scenes, but those who visit my "Roscoe’s Story" will find it looking different now. Gone is the header image, gone is the sidebar, and gone are most of the links that used to populate the sidebar. Those few links that remain are now found in the header or footer of most pages here.

As I kick my minimalist mindset into a higher gear, focused as I am on downsizing my footprint prior to the big move, all the extra bells and whistles this blog has accumulated have begun to seem ugly and offensive to me. So I’ve decided to get rid of them.
