Watered and weeded the garden. Put up a chicken wire shield to prevent sparrows from eating the seed pods from last year's surviving kale plant. Cut and sawed out a half-dead shrub. Hauled the remains of said shrub to the back end of the field. Fixed the garden cart. Swung a yo-yo in the front yard to cut down the bolting chicory and other noxious weeds--lawn doesn't really need mowing. 88 degrees today, full sun.

Gettin' a cold drink here, Boss.

Changed my vote to the floppies, because they looked so lonely there with no votes at all. 8)

Re. mask making:
The Best (and Worst) Materials for Masks

People making homemade masks might want to reach for a vacuum cleaner filter.

Amanda Wilson, an environmental health sciences doctoral candidate in the Department of Community, Environment and Policy in the Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health, is lead author on a recent study published in the Journal of Hospital Infection that assessed the ability of a variety of nontraditional mask materials to protect a person from infection after 30 seconds and after 20 minutes of exposure in a highly contaminated environment.

Stay safe, Pyrrho!
