'Vark, if you're missing work to spend a lot of time playing a video game, I think you need to reconsider your priorities!

Great perspective to have. In the "infoeconomy" they've trained us that if we go on vacation we might come back having proven that were not necessary. I can count on at least two hands the number of people I've seen go on vacation and then canned the week they get back. So I don't take vacations.

I just read this. The owners of our rental mentioned something about this but I really wasn't listening at the time. This is some hippy-dippy stuff, like we saw in Arizona. They charge a goodly sum for forest bathing too, why do we always get the wackos

They give me four weeks but we're shut down between Christmas and New Year so I gotta save a week for that plus a week for sick time, if any

Friday, ready to go back home. A week away is about the most vacation I can stand. Next week is paint the house foundation, something I've been looking forward to for a few months now. Been saving up all Flack's podcasts plus a few others. Should be a good time

Didn't do a damn thing today! It was wonderful. Spent the whole day fixing broken links in the Crazy Doodle thread while sitting on the deck

Went hiking in Ausable today. Nice place even though they privatized nature. Letchworth and Watkins Glen are just as good and they belong to all of us New Yorkers. Still, it's nice there.

Rain stopped after dinner and we were able to see some of the Perseidis meteors, pretty cool

Where do you think you'll end up? NY or elsewhere? I do have some concerns that jobs that seem like they'll be permanently virtual might suddenly start to require some meatspace appearances after Covid is over. Remote work will win in the long run, but there's still a lot of resistance and a lot of managers who want it not to work out.

Oh yeah, and to keep this on-topic...that sucks about the rain, Vark!

Agreed but I've grilled under the eaves of a Rochester house in a snowstorm so . . . Pussy.
