Thirty Days in the Hole: COVID-19 Homestay

On March 15 we began a requested 15-day homestay.

Perhaps because we began with the live-streamed worship service and adult Sunday School service of our church, we were filled with peace and joy and good spirits. Perhaps because that’s our constant life mode anyway… my husband and I are blessed.… ...

The Power of 1

in 1921 a playwright coined the word “robot” for a science fiction play. I learned this fact at a UC Irvine lecture showcasing their center dedicated to stroke rehabilitation with the use of robotics. Credible, incredible stuff.
