Masks now recommended even at home.
Trump wonders aloud why no one likes him. Jr's acct suspended for 24 hrs for hydroxychloroquine falsehoods.
Billionaires testify today.
We live in interesting times. I once asked Chief Justice U Myint Thein about his time when PRC was being formed. He was there as U Nu's ambassador.
That was the answer he gave me.

HYDROXYCHLOROQUINE - Recovery trial results finally out - and hopefully puts nail in coffin. Out of 4700 people randomized... HCQ did NOT lower #covid19 mortality. It anything it was trending in wrong direction. Threadhttps://medrxiv.org/content/10.1101/2020.07.15.20151852v1

This video shared with us by a viewer who lives next to the Consulate General of China in #Houston shows fire and activity in the courtyard of the building. DETAILS SO FAR: https://click2houston.com/news/local/2020/07/22/houston-fire-and-police-responding-to-reports-of-documents-being-burned-at-consulate-general-of-china/
LATEST: The U.S. says the Chinese consulate in Houston, Texas was ordered to close on IP issues
Firefighters arrived at the Chinese consulate in Houston after witness reports that papers were being burned outside in open containers, according to local media reports, citing police.
I saw it on NBC Nightly news.
Pl look at National Institutes of Health website for more info.
I wouldn't recommend it for seniors or children though. Besides, children are below the age of informed consent.
One entire family volunteered, and volunteers were interviewed on NBC.
They have now moved to human trials, already been through that stage in UK.
This reminds me of my mother who was born around WW I. She caught smallpox as an infant, and her next elder sister died. She said the vaccine has already been discovered, but was not yet available in Burma/Asia.
I know of a family who were ordering polio vaccines from overseas in 1970s, and their son got polio before the vaccine arrived.
My aunt and my husband's employers helped me get polio vaccines for my sons. It has to be refrigerated and taken orally.

Good way to practice making flowers for say Irish Lace, and this, like Granny Squares, is connect as you go.
Using yarn with shades and colors to create an Argyle pattern
This is just ingenious.
Blog--thoughts on product, fairs etc.
Several other vendors at our Village Craft Fair have asked me about this.
I find this very useful.
You should try to keep your artistic efforts at least somewhat inter-related. I don't do food because it is perishable.
You should try and sell enough to cover some of your costs, some of the time.
You should also balance your (full time) or part time job, your age and health situation and the demands of your art.
Musician Red Holloway said at a conference in Boulder, CO, that "I afford my art through sacrifice." I was on a music and poetry panel with him and others, such as the Grusin brothers (On Golden Pond, Milagro Beanfield War etc) and the late Dennis Brutus.
Most reputable craft fairs require that you hand made the items, that they not be imported.
Also juried national level shows require a much greater outlay of time, energy and booth fees, as well as companions to get you there, bring down and put up your show. You also need a high level of excellence in your art or craft, and in some cases, the production facilities such as studio space, staff, or other resources, to support that level of artistic excellence.
For this reason I am trying to make more compact items, but since I don't make jewelry, I am doing "needlepoint paintings."
On one hand you may sell a lot of, say, greeting cards at $5 a piece,
but on the other, as the Hmong woman who won a Pew Grant in Philadelphia said,
"I wanted to make something to be remembered by."
Previously, she had been making cushion covers and smaller items as suggested by her Western advisors, bc she needed the money.
For those of you who don't know, or forgot, the Hmong are a SE Asian people who helped France and the CIA --
They make the most beautiful embroideries and story quilts.
