Backyard wildlife, bees not pleased


Meant to tear down that old termite infested wood but was interrupted by the incessant buzzing, my guess is this bee was not pleased with the idea at the time. Soon another came by to amplify complaints which I found odd, because I always thought them solitary, but of course that's not all true. The females tend to nest near others and live in small groups. Not the best pollinators but does server a purpose. Bad news for my roof I guess, better start looking for holes.

Kingston. Sahara Dust Storm.


So we calling this the "Godzilla dust cloud" now.









View from Dragon Garden Shop 1 Milbrook Plaza, KGN 8. Got the Chow Mein special and it was good.

The good news tho:





- The dry air can create downdrafts (sinking air) around tropical storms and hurricanes, which may result in the weakening of tropical cyclones.

- Strong winds associated with the SAL can contribute to increased vertical wind shear – the change in wind speed with height – which makes the environment hostile for tropical cyclone development.

DO THE FIVE - what the hell is this?


"Hmm." All I could muster while staring at the screen. "How long has that been there?"





At the bottom of the Chrome homepage sits a spammy looking message block, urging its viewer to "DO THE FIVE".





"No I will not." The immediate response, as visions of compromise began to appear, discouraging the urge to click.





Research became the primary side quest that moment and as it turns out, that message is legit, my rationale for paranoia unfounded.





Google is currently delivering COVID-19 related content to those interested, using that blurb as notice and gateway to a portal which includes a neat little map tracker for those of us burdened with morbid curiosity.





As of this post, the most important thing of note is that: "There’s currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease (COVID-19)."





Be safe folks, and be wary of the disinformation campaigns in circulation.

A how to, care of the CDC:





  • Wet your hands with clean, running water (warm or cold), turn off the tap, and apply soap.
  • Lather your hands by rubbing them together with the soap. Lather the backs of your hands, between your fingers, and under your nails.
  • Scrub your hands for at least 20 seconds. Need a timer? Hum the “Happy Birthday” song from beginning to end twice.
  • Rinse your hands well under clean, running water.
  • Dry your hands using a clean towel or air dry them.
