The weather is it the topic of conversation these days. An F2 tornado touched down about 50 miles from my house, yesterday, destroying nearly 100 houses. Fortunately, no one was killed or injured, but it is all very tragic. Fortunately, we were spared except for a heavy downfall off rain.
Otherwise, the weather is crappy. So far this year, there has been few days one could call “pleasant” on account of the cool winds of the North, and the rest of the time as being gloomy and wet.
Summer begins this Saturday, so let’s hold we get some good weather out of it. Otherwise, this year Will be a write off.

Likewise, I am able to take four or five steps without holding onto the walker. Moreover, I am surprised and pleased with how easy it is. Mind you, I don’t press it.

This way I am making progress at my own pace, while not putting myself at risk
For the past couple of days I have been working on a list of child welfare benefits handed out by the various levels of government. It is an ongoing research, because they are spread over three levels, as well as several programs, departments, and service agencies. In fact, I don’t believe even government as an idea of how much it is paying out for what. It is a haystack made of money.
So far, it covers six full pages which I will publish as soon as I am finished.
More next time.
