Click to ENLARGE. The first 3 paras. You might relate. SMILE.


This is my 3rd or 4th post on this blog. As some of you know I became a very proud & satisfied Atoll iSUP owner and paddler last year.

I, as is often the case, LUCKED out in getting to know ‘Wiley Wise‘, the co-founder of Atoll. He invited me to write some posts along with him. It has been fun.

This post is worth reading.

iSUP paddle boarding is a sure way to beat the quarantine blues and stay/get FIT at the same time.

Think about it.

Fresh air. The gentle lap of the water. Tranquility. Serenity. You can’t beat it. Beats running.

Read it. I elaborate. No point going over all of it again. SMILE. Thanks.

I Hope You Can’t Get Coronavirus COVID-19 From Ticks.

by Anura Guruge



I really hope that ticks can’t spread the virus. If they can, I am SCREWED. Ticks are back in New Hampshire. Just picked a huge one off Maya. Given my long walks — in the woods — I get bitten often. So far, I have lucked out. I also think I have picked up some immunity against tick bites — I think/I hope.

But, as far as I know, I have ZERO immunity against COVID-19. So, if a tick can transmit it, I am screwed.

Now, the Red Cross is CLAIMING that the virus can’t be transmitted via blood — e.g., blood donation/transfusion. But, I doubt that they know for sure, for sure.

Yikes.

And don’t tell me to avoid getting tick bites. Impossible, unless I just stay indoors — and even then I could get one from the dogs.
