I just finished reading your article. Pretty interesting.

Where do you go when you came to the States?

I live in Duluth MN on the shore of Lake Superior. It is still winter here.

I don’t get outside. I have heart issues, diabetes issues, knee issues, and cellulitis and edema. So I am an all-around wreck.

I am going to start fighting the Veterans Administration again. I was stationed at Fort McClellan AL in 1971–73. Ah. I will wait to tell you that another time. I may have written a blog on it. I did early but then my computer crashed, the backup company wouldn’t let me have my backup until I paid the month’s services. Really nasty stuff lately.

I was going to write the story of my heart issues in 2019 but I spent today still trying to get my compute organize.

I deleted two publications on Medium and started another one. That took some time.

I have written several posts on Coronavirus.

I just finished one the other day on SARS MERS and Coronavirus.

Coronavirus is caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

There was thought it was caused by Pangolins because research showed a 98% commonality in cells. But on reexamination that dropped to 90%+.

I don’t know what is going on in the world. The United States is going to pay a huge price because of the stupid buffoon trump. He has really screwed this country. And his supporters! Geez, what stupid people. I wrote a 4,000 word+ post on why they voted for him.

I’m glad you didn’t get stuck in the US. What a mess. Keep an eye on the news laugh your ass off at the stupid Yanks.

It is 2.30 in the morning. My butt is killing me from sitting all day.

My legs are swollen so I am on water pills. I spend my day going to the bathroom. Drives me insane.

Well, I should work on my post on a little longer. I need something to show for the day.

I’m glad I caught your post. I don’t even remember where I saw it. That’s what happens when you turn 70!

Talk again.
