  1. You're right. I'm talking immune response, not lethality or infective doses. Which makes it even more hopeful to get news related to immunity. I get wanting to be cautious. But the sample size in this is pretty astounding. Even the abundantly cautious medical providers I work with were optimistic. Cautious, yes but optimistic.
  2. Oh, I get that. The numbers make for hopeful news, but we don't know what seasonal changes this thing is capable of making. THAT ... next year, when we see if it comes back like influenza, that'll be the real test. That and how people who've had it previously or have been vaccinated (that's coming) react to the new versions. It may be like measles, where we get it once and we're done. Or it may be like a cold, where we get them almost every year. Frankly, it's more likely to be similar to a cold or the flu - as the common cold virus is a coronavirus too. There are still unknowns. We've still got to be careful - all of us. Yet, this is a hopeful thing. Once fought, the specific version of SARS-CoV-2 cannot re-infect a person (unless there's an extraordinary event like a complete eradication of the immune system).
  3. FYI - this may end up being similar to the flu: where the virus changes slightly every year, and thus can indeed reinfect folks. But those infections will likely be less severe, as the body had previous exposure to another version of the virus. It's very much a case of the immune system having a quickly developing partial response to such a bug, rather than a delayed one. In other words, it is no reason to stop wearing a mask if you do get and recover from COVID-19 while a pandemic is going on.
  4. I have a meeting every Monday morning. In that meeting, we discuss SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, and specifically news and our response to the virus. Today the following information was released by our medical director, based on a huge sample study of folks who had been previously infected Concerning reinfection: To date, we have proof that five of thirty-eight million people have been reinfected by SARS-CoV-2. This means once someone gets the virus and recovers, then they're functionally immune, and reinfection is anomalous. That's amazing news that I really needed. I wanted to share it, in case it can help someone else out there.

    You're welcome. Thanks for reading my work. I always love hearing from folks who give it a try. tim and I are still working bit by bit on our collaborative project. We'll get there. I hope you end up liking that one too. 🙂
  6. I also wanted to thank @Renee Stevens for featuring the story in the blog. I appreciate that. 🙂
  7. tim, the Instant Pot is going to get jealous of your Knitting Obsession.
  8. Baldur's Gate 3 has straight and gay romance options. Upon character creation you pick your "perfect" love interest (you actually create them). If you're male and you create a guy, then the game tilts toward gay romances. It's still in Early Access, but damn ... it's a great game if you like strategy and if you wanna have mad crazy sex with vampire spawn, a confused wizard, and whatever else happens across your path.
  9. Some songs are made for waking up to.

      That was wonderful! Thank you so much for sharing it 

  10. That's for the great review, Parker! This story was challenging. Every word had to count, and every scene had to push the plot forward without it feeling rushed. I loved the process of writing with efficiency yet meaning. It was great fun. I hope people enjoy it.
  11. Hello, folks. I actually wrote a tiny bit on my lunch today. One single scene, but it was something. I hope you're all doing well!

    Thanks for reading and for the great comment. I hope you find other stories to enjoy as well. 🙂
  13. Thanks for reading both Guarded and Camp Refuge. I do like those stories quite a bit. As for A Silent Song, that story was a challenge. It should become apparent by chapter two as to the reason why. I'm currently in the process of writing another story with tim, @Mikiesboy. We've finished chapter 17, and we're slowly working our way along. It's happening slowly because it takes mental effort to write. And right now, mental energy is in short supply (at least it is for me). We'll get there, though. It's too good a premise and story to stop. I hope you enjoy A Silent Song. 🙂
  14. Thank you, folks for the birthday wishes. I still had to work, but some friends are inviting us over for a socially distant BBQ to celebrate. It should be fun. 🙂

    Ohhhh ... yeah. Ash and Ember is one of my better ones, I think. Though Camp Refuge has its moments as well. If you wanna cry, read Fleeting Eternity. It's really emotional, but I like to think it's a good story. It may be my favorite thing I've written to date.
