Pretty much the same

This is a quiet day for us.  It is 35 degrees out so I'm delaying the walk for a bit (I do have my new hat to wear so I'm not really worried).

I've not been thrilled with Christmas for years.  When I was working it was nice to have a couple of days off.  When I had the company it was nice to have a couple of days I could work without interruption (small businessman's vacation).  

Now it is more or less another day.  More people on the walkways which is a little annoying as it means I have to leash Zoe.   But otherwise another day.  I do think we're going down to see Dana's brother who is bed ridden in a care facility.  Dana visits him periodically.  I went with her last time and took him some ribs.  She visits through the window.  Standing out on the grass next to this house with the window to her brother's room open.  And they talk.  I've never liked the way he talks to her.  He's is so used to belittling her that neither of them even notice now.  But I do and it is pretty hard to listen and I can't fix it.  So I stay away.

I signed up for a Covid tracking app.  It is interesting.  The process is you list any tests you've taken and the results.  Then each day you report in (takes maybe 5 seconds) saying no new tests and you feel fine.  Or not.  They collect the data and warn of anyone you've come in contact with that might have Covid.  

I'd sign up for a national one of these in a minute.  One that tracked the hell out of me and blue toothed anyone in my path.  Really, I'm running a Google Pixel with maps set so that my wife and sister can see where I am on the map.  And I've got everything locked down with passwords but if someone really wanted to track me, I'm already carrying the tracker.  May as well make it useful.

Can I get the Bill Gates chip so I don't have to keep my phone updated?

Oh, yeah.  And
