Has The Virus Affected Your Life? How?

Sheila, in Netanya, Israel, and my sister in North Chicago, both wrote asking this.  Yesterday when I got these queries there wasn't anything.

When I woke up this morning there were a couple of things that do affect everyone in the South Bay Writers Workshop that affect us.  The City of Redondo Beach is closing all of their Senior Citizen gatherings.  Thurs. Writers meets at the Veteran Park Senior Center.  But:  it's only two Thursdays when we can't meet there.

In Hermosa Beach, their Community Center is closed until the end of March.  That takes care of the three days a week we have French classes.  The three of them are now gone.  But:  on the bright side, the late March South Bay Stories Show has been given permission to do the Saturday night and Sunday afternoon  performances on March 28th and 29th respectively.

If this is the worst thing that happens ...these groups are on Easy Street.  I think it is particularly practical to close the city senior centers, particularly those that serve lunches.  Seniors are said to be the most vulnerable.  Live and thrive people!

Closed -
Redondo Beach's Beach Life Festival
Hermosa Beach's St. Patrick's Day Parade

Your vet - if you don't feel good, get someone else to bring your pet in.
My dentist wrote along similar lines except the pet part.

Of note:  bending your elbow, grasping it by the bicep and raising both is an Italian greeting. And a rather rude one, too.
