* By the way, do they still make them in today’s ever-faster changing world..or is it all done with mobile phones?

The Daily Binge

Scott Macaulay since 1985 has prepared an annual thanksgiving dinner so people don’t have to be alone during the holiday. This year has changed all of that.

Scott is not the only person in this situation as the stubborness of coronavirus is keeping many people isolated from one another and losing all social asepct of life. He has hosted hundreds of people throughout the 35 years and all for people he’s never met before all with the ogoal of making sure they don’t have to be alone on Thanksgiving Day.

“I never ask for donations for this. Everybody’s looking for money at this time of year!” Macaulay said. “I’ll just do as much as I can until there’s no money left.”

This year, in an effort to combat the feeling that COVID-19 is ruining everything, Macaulay has maintained a tradition from his annual dinners: He asks his meal recipients to…

“The Nurses” Book???

October 26, 2020

"An Ordinary Person, One Extraordinary Life"

http://www.thedriverthenurseandthewriter.wordpress.com

I often say to “the nurse” that she should write HER story (she agrees it is quite different/amazing (“unbelievable”??) and am sure many readers “out there” would like it. By the way she reads very widely/voraciously * (big word, eh, like ‘marmalade) and writes very well – way more “conventionally/normally” than “totally impulsive/driven/obsessive” me (“you’re not like ‘real/proper writers, c;!’). Once written  I could quickly publish it with Amazon, but she’s extremely private and doesn’t share at all online…so don’t think likely to happen.

# She reads so fast that the pages start smouldering

Anyway I take up more than enough space on the www already. So get your own internet, you fairy!”
