If I finish this I'm planning on Spanish next where at least I have some foundation and can read the alphabet!

Obsessive gardening is the other thing that has taken over.
From your other posts I thought you had completed an arm-chair epidemiological modelling degree.

Well I do like to multi-task. And we should all be familiarising ourselves with epidemic science - it's our future! But I really didn't think anybody - least of all you - read my lengthy posts.

I bought all the ingredients to make some thermite a few years ago, including magnesium ribbon. Maybe now, five weeks in to SD & lock-down, is the time to make some.

Sounds like lots of good old fashioned fun but what for?

Update time. This was all posted ages ago. What's happened since?

Anyone brought in some good habits?

I'm trying to read more. I haven't started but will.
I've realised how much I enjoy a good puzzle and that will never change.
Millhouse has mastered swing-ball (classic game, much respect).
Anyone started baking bread or cakes or anything? (I'd like to do the bread one, maybe this weekend).
Anyone started anything else interesting?
Who can be an inspiration?

Or are we all just lying down in front of Netflix?
I haven't started reading at all. Need to do it though, have a couple of good ones to go for though. Just moving house has pushed everything to one side.
Puzzles - I've got a 7pack to work through but not started yet.
I don't have any updates on Millhouse's swingball skills, I expect they're mad good but have been hampered by the heat.
I started making bread. I made some white loaves. They were good. Not as nice as shop bought sourdough / country bread things though. They look tough to make though.

plenty languages on this link, 15 mins a day and I'm seeing a difference already.

Like the ROKR idea, away to google that now.

Good skills.

I've learnt three songs on the piano: 1) Baby Shark, 2) Happy and you Know it, 3) See you again

Available for kids parties and funerals.

Baby shark really only suitable for multigenerational car crashes.
