"It ain't dyin' I'm talkin' about. It's livin!"
My days have unexpectedly become filled with livin', and as I reflect on the last year or so I realize that I've been mainly existing. Which is fine; sometimes all you can do is hold on by the fingernails and endure. But livin' is much more better than existing.
Here's a glimpse of how they install fence posts in faraway Herefordshire. Boggles the mind!

All across the land the people who live in this nation are convinced that the murder-death-kill flu is a horrible scourge and "we" must bend every effort to defeating it in mortal combat. And by "we" they mean somebody else, prolly the gubmint doodes. They base their certain knowledge on the authoritative statements of talking suits and dresses. For all intents and purposes almost none of the vast array of my friends and neighbors have looked at any numbers or data, thought about how viral disease works, and attempted to put factual data into a reasonable scale, context, and perspective. Why would they? They know with absolute certainty that they know all there is to know. They look at the tee-vee and they know. Period.
Americans have abdicated their sovereignty and ceded their liberty.
Our contract as spelled out in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States of America stipulates that each of us have unalienable rights which derive from god. As a consequence, each of us have non-negotiable responsibilities attending our status as individual monarchs. To do it right, one must exercise the responsibility of our sovereignty and of our liberty and behave like the individual emperors we are.
Shirk, or do not shirk.
It's not 'the gubmint's" fault. The job of the sovereign is incredibly hard. The easy button approach leads only to death of the soul.
Do or do not. There is no try.
Suck it up and drive on.
Be well and embrace the blessings of liberty.
