Ron's cutting onions during quarantine. I hope you're not going to waste them.

Fixing a hole where the rain gets in during my spare time.

Fixing a hole in the ocean if I'm daring enough.

Doesn't really stop my wandering mind.

I just really like repairing stuff

Abbey Road Studios has reopened after lockdown

"The legendary Abbey Road Studios has opened its doors after a 10-week closure. The recording studio where the Beatles, Pink Floyd, Oasis and countless other artists recorded classic albums reopened for business on Thursday, June 4. // ...had never been closed for business in almost 90 years of operation.”

Good advice, coronavirus time or not.

I wonder if they ever tried singing through masks during a recording. They tried so many other things.

Code Happy: Beatles tune signals recovery from COVID-19 at BID-Plymouth hospital

PLYMOUTH – Smiles are returning to the faces at BID-Plymouth hospital and everyone can hear, if not see it.

Whenever a COVID-19 patient at the hospital shows significant improvement, doctors and nurses declare a Code Happy and play a clip of The Beatles’ tune “Here Comes The Sun ” over the public address system to signal the success.

I'm assuming this is Plymouth in the U.K. The town I live in is next door to a Plymouth but it doesn't have any hospitals

Because the majority of the older mods here are Brits I was thinking it was the one in England. The Plymouth in the Detroit area is just an upper middle class suburban community. It does have an awesome ice sculpture festival ever year.

Well over here in good ol Utah, we are now in the Yellow zone, which means that things are cautiously going back to normal.  We've actually been in Yellow since the end of May, I've just neglected to post on here about it.  School in the fall is going to be in person, but with implemented social distancing.  Us at the LDS Institute of Religion(which despite name corrections in the church is still officially called that) are planning our semester kick-off activity, and have decided that a drive-in movie would be a good social distancing activity.  Once we get some approvals, it will be, quite literally, showtime.

The Institute was quite literally my second home.  I spent more time their than I did at my actual home and ate at least 70% of my meals there.  It was hard when everything shut down so suddenly and I had to leave the thing that was so much of my life.  The good thing is that I was able to work more hours, which meant I could put more time into my music collection hobby and not fall into a pit of total purposelessness.  However, I am happy to finally return to my second home this fall.

 

Anyway, I hope you all have been doing well, especially those with lives dramatically changed by the virus.  Things are getting better, and the end of the crisis is approaching.  We don't know exactly when it will be, which makes it feel like it may never come, but it will.  Stay strong BBers.

On 29 April 2020 Historic England launched Picturing Lockdown, a unique project in which we asked the public to submit photos to document their experiences of one week in lockdown during the Covid-19 pandemic. https://historicengland.org.uk.....-lockdown/

One of the public submissions:

https://historicengland.org.uk.....036/01/006

How they describe the picture: 'Lockdown Protest' - a tongue-in-cheek recreation of John Lennon and Yoko Ono's bed-in, with the slogans 'Stay at Home' and 'Stay Safe', during the Covid-19 lockdown

Ah, yes, the ever-relevant Beatles.

You don't become immune after having the virus. We'll just have to wait till a vaccine is developed until we can be properly safe from it.

How would a vaccine be more effective than actually having it? Correct me if I'm wrong, but it's the same mechanism, right? You introduce your immune system to the germ in some way (whether by catching the germ itself or a weakened strain, as with a vaccine) and your immune system learns to recognize the germ?

After reading further into it, I'll correct myself - you *usually* do become immune, but not necessarily permanently, or even for very long. The immune system 'remembers' how to respond to different diseases better than others. For example, immunity to measles is usually a lifelong thing, whereas with other diseases people who have recovered can be infected more than once. Covid-19 is pretty new in relative terms, so it's hard to tell thus far. According to the WHO there isn't currently any evidence that you're protected from a second infection having recovered from it, but other articles I've read suggest that immunity may last around a year.

As for why vaccines work better than natural immunity, I don't really know, but I assume it's something to do with the fact that doing it artificially means there's a greater chance of being successful than leaving it to the body or something like that.

You won't be immune if you catch it and recover. You can get it again. Also during that time, you can spread it to older people so when you do catch it, make sure you are in isolation.

Also it doesn't spread as well and has far less risk to you than catching covid-19.

There's no certainty that catching it but being asymptomatic, which is the majority of those infected, gives immunity as it seems produces weak antibodies. It's also too soon to have any idea how long any level of immunity will last or, as is likely, we will get mutations resulting in more dangerous strains.

There're reasons those vulnerable to flu - among whom I'm one - have to have an annual shot, because immunity doesn't last and mutations change the disease. A vaccine is the only certain way out but we are starting to find treatments that improve the odds.

Ah, okay.

it's not about immunity as much as I just wanna catch the damn virus because I'm fed up with the suspense, there's no way it could make me sicker than I already am of this entire year with all of its many levels of bullshit lol

(I am in a black mood right now, don't take me too seriously, I'll feel better tomorrow... later today... whatever)

I can definitely relate (although in my case, i fear that we'll return to the status quo once a vaccine is found).

What i've been doing is trying to not let it get to me by promising myself that for the rest of my life, i'll only leave my house to only leave my house for work, exercise, essential shopping, and the occasional visit to a friend's house.

While this isn't ideal for everyone, it may help you out by getting rid of the suspense, since life will be essentially the same once the pandemic is over as it is now, in the same way it was able to keep me calm and prevent me from doing something stupid for the same reason.

If you're reading this, you are looking for something to do.
