How have your experiences been so far this year? Anything positive?

People started hoarding too much. That can be a nuisance.
Somehow my coffee consumption doubled.

There were positiv things:
- helped little sister to save quite a few bucks with felling trees
- spent some quality time with my nephew at above action
- had more time to practice with my musical instruments and improved my playing
- lost a few pounds
- had several really nice motorcycle tours
- got to work remotely, saving me trips to the office
- learned about MREs of different countries by watching a dedicated Youtube channel and got some ideas for creating my own ration packs
- did not get to be one of the infected

In conclusion I´d say life is good. I expect it to stay this way for the rest of the year.

Everything has been positive!!! Being somewhat newly retired things have been pretty easy for my wife and I, though a tad boring. The great news is that we still get along great and love each other, so we are still enjoying the many hours and days together.

I'm very happy to hear that the vaccines are coming. Looking for life to get back to normal so we can start traveling around our new retirement home's area.

The glass is eitheer half full, or half empty.....

Mostly good things this year, with adjustments for covid. I don't find mask wearing either onerous or an invasion of personal liberties. This traces back to a dig I directed where we wore masks 9 hours a day, five days a week (at least), for three months at a time, for four straight years.

Good things. I got my arthritic hip replaced, regaining mobility, although timing was delayed due to covid. Mrs. Hikermor and I celebrated our 30th anniversary yesterday, capping a wondrously satisfying, fulfilling, and productive relationship.

Haven't ben ableto do the field work I would like to accomplish, but I have been able to do laboratory work at home at times I choose, so I am still involved in meaningful projects. Mrs. H has published some of her research, which is enormously satisfying to both of us.

Life goes on. I know I won't be here forever - it is the fourth quarter, the clock is ticking, and I am out of timeouts. I just need one more score - even a field goal will do....

True positives? No. Taking some of the lesser negatives and trying to turn them around to be thought of as positives, yes.

My 2020 has been a sucking hole punched through life, so far at least. Yeah, I saved some mileage and gas working from home for half the year but given the choice I'd have rather not had a pandemic. With a couple months left to go I wound up with Bell's Palsy! It's accurate to say that I'm just warehousing my physical body until it's healthy enough to do something with. On the bright side I'm not dead, my family is well, etc so I'll try to dwell on that instead of how miserable things are right now.

I'm unable to answer that question without breaking forum rules.

I could swear in French, but even that would be deleted.
