Welcome to Sunday Stealing. This feature originated and published on WTIT: The Blog. Here we will steal all types of questions from every corner of the blogosphere. Our promise to you is that we will work hard to find the most interesting and intelligent questions. (Past hosts include: Our first - Judd Corizan, Mr. L, Kwizgiver and Bud) Cheers to all of us thieves!
1 – What is something you are doing due to the pandemic that you normally don’t do? After the pandemic will you continue to so this?
Ned and I are watching a movie a day (except on weekends, when he
records his radio show). I'm really enjoying it and hope we continue after
the quarantine is over (though the quarantine has nothing to do with whether or
not we watch a movie). I am
keeping a list of all the movies we watch along with quasi reviews, just to
keep my hand in!
Jeri called and we chatted for about an hour. It's always

And I always love sitting and watching the antics of the squirrels running
around in the back yard.
Go see my mother and give her a big hug!
I am not an essential employee, Walt is retired, Ned is not

stressed it's because there are too many projects I'm working on and not enough

Hmmm...hard to say. I make new things all the time.
Nothing particularly "new" lately, though I've made pizza twice using the
Pioneer Woman's recipe for the crust and it turned out better than any recipe
I've used in the past.
We moved here in 1973, when Walt's office, which was based in
Berkeley, re-located to Davis. We were not happy about it and it took me
about 15 years before I thought of this as "home," but I do now.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oddball_(film). I was reading up on
the background of the movie I'd just watched.
Ever? Wow. A lot of people have said a lot of nice
things to me over the past 77 years. I can't think of one that stands out
from the others.
The one I posted as Photo of the Day two days ago:
