Que sera, sera, whatever will be, will be, but first I need more coffee.

I didn’t like Uncategorized so I changed it to General. A catch-all category.

Hello 2021

2020 has been a heckuva year and 2021 is really a continuation of that year. In three days Joe Biden will be inaugurated as president. He has a lot of work ahead of him. I wasn’t sure we’d even reach this point and after what happened on January 6, 2021 in Washington, DC, it almost didn’t. It still might not happen but the odds are growing less and less. We will still have to hold those accountable and defuse the situation. The pandemic is still raging and getting worse despite vaccines being rolled out.  If people would just stay at home as much as possible and wear masks when out, we could get it under control, but thousands are dying every day. And it won’t abate for weeks.


I’ve activated the Gutenberg Editor in WordPress. I’ll be able to switch between it and the Classic Editor (which I prefer), but I know that I’ll need to learn it. It’s very similar to Wagtail’s StreamField editor. You create blocks to build your page. It’s supposed to be more flexible and powerful.

I don’t care. It’s very different and, frankly, a pain in the ass to switch. It’s like going from Word 97 to Word 2003 (I don’t remember the exact names). It required learning Word all over again. This is on a smaller scale but it is a big change.

That which does not kill us makes us stronger.

It also pisses us off.

Should I blog more?

Yes, yes I should.

Currently surviving COVID-19 pandemic.  Staying safe as best we can.

Could things be better? Yes, yes they can.

Will they get better? Unknown.

Are other countries doing better? Yes, there are countries less advanced than ours that have the pandemic under better control.


It’s the first day of the new year and I feel like I ought to post something. I don’t have much to say, but I think the featured image sums up how I feel about the new year and the last one.
