COVID-19 (coronavirus) Journal Entry # 5

6 April 2020

How is everyone doing today? I am hanging in there! 

My Thoughts and Feelings:

How is your pandemic journal writing going? Mine is going well. Over the weekend I included two recipes in my journal for my grandsons. I know it seems silly but since I am talking to them for the most part, I figured why not include the recipes for the meals I am making during the pandemic! The first recipe was for beer bread (this recipe is from a family friend) but I had lost it in a move somewhere along the way. However, she had posted it on Facebook recently and I asked her for it again. The second recipe is new and for a crustless quiche. I have made this recipe twice now and absolutely love it! 

My youngest grandson, Keaton will turn 1 on Wednesday and I am so sad that we will not be able to be with him, his brother and his Mama and Daddy to celebrate this day! My daughter in love has decided to do a birthday happy hour through Zoom so that we can be there in some small way. Once this pandemic is under control and shelter in place orders have been rescinded, I am sure we will be celebrating several family birthdays at once. Today is my nephew William's birthday and in late March my nephew Walker celebrated his birthday. There are a few more birthdays coming up between now and end of the April too. 

What Have I Been Doing:

As I may have mentioned my husband and I moved to Myrtle Beach back on Valentine's Day. As I packed up our apartment in Columbia during the day to wind down at night I searched GenealogyBank,, FamilySearch and Ancestry for records on a new tree I started for just one line in my biological tree. I am trying to prove or disapprove a couple of theories. I noted source citations as I went but I did not start a research log so I have spent the last 3 weeks adding 425 source citations to a new research log. I wish I could say it won't happen again but I can't! Life gets busy but at least I document the records with partial citations so that I know where I found them (website), the date I found them, which tree they belong in, and the link to find them again. This does make it a little easier but it feels like it is so much more time consuming! As of now I have completed 208 out of 425. 

Here is a screen shot of the beginning with the column headings.

The above shot and the one below are from the middle and toward the end. I included them because I need to give a shout out to my fellow genealogist, Patti Hobbs, who helped me craft the citations for Florida Marriage and Death records when I asked for help in the Facebook group Genealogy - Cite Your Sources.

Covid-19 Update:

Here in my home county of Horry there are now 64 confirmed cases of the coronavirus with 5 confirmed deaths. As of 5:00 o'clock this evening many nonessential business are closing due to the pandemic. The closings include furniture, clothing, shoe and accessory stores, florists, department, jewelry, shoe, book stores, sporting goods stores, luggage stores, home furnishing stores, craft and music stores. That is a lot closings here in our area as there many outlet stores here. 

 There is also a meeting suppose to be a meeting of all city councils in the county this evening to determine what steps should be taken next to help prevent the spread of the virus. 

Just for Fun:

I have reposted the names I am researching in my Dawning Genealogy blog which is my adoptive family and my children's paternal lines. Today I am posting the names from their Kitts families I am researching. If you are researching any of these families let me know and perhaps we can collaborate!

  1. We have been securing and broadening the existence of rooftop tiles utilizing airless shower gear for 25 or more years. Our demonstrated, attempted and tried, German made, clear or shading pigmented defensive coatings, will leave your rooftop resembling a pristine one for a negligible part of the expense. I compare the utilization of these extraordinary coatings as like securing the bodywork of your vehicle. We wash our vehicles consistently ourselves or we take them to a carwash. Sooner or later, we'll notice that the paintwork is beginning to look dull and will at that point, eventually, either apply the clean and buff it ourselves or once more, pay for another person to do it. Why clean it?

    Well it will positively look better, water will globule and run off rapidly and bird-droppings or tree sap will presently don't start to "consume" your paintwork.

    We do this to something that degrades each time we fire it up (much of the time). Your home (your palace) over the long run, simply does the inverse! I'm truly glad that you're thinking about rooftop cleaning and would invite the chance to give a free citation to you. In the event that you like and simultaneously we can give a citation to ensuring your now perfect rooftop (yet not secured) from the components.

    I'm not going to talk "over your head" about the specialized details and cycles of these staggering defensive coatings, yet know this:Once we have cleaned and eliminated the greenery, lichen, and green growth from your rooftop tiles and before the use of either a reasonable or hued defensive covering, our master worker for hire will place another tip into his shower firearm. We just utilize the market-pioneer for our tips. Graco tips are made out of the greatest grade of tungsten carbide, the most rough safe material utilized in the assembling of airless splash tips.

    All splash tips will wear with typical use. All coatings contain solids that are rough some more than others. Utilizing a ragged tip will bring about an inconsistent completion, since when a tip wears, the size of the tip hole increments and the fan width diminishes. This powers more passes to cover the surface prompting a break in the ideal conveyance design. Consolidating the right Graco splash tip with our firearm assumes a major part in assisting us with making the expert completion your rooftop covering position requests. Not exclusively does the tip decide how much liquid will leave the weapon when our worker for hire pulls the trigger, the shower tip likewise decides how wide a splash fan the firearm will make. Our worker for hire is likewise watching the tip for any indications of obstructing We just utilize Graco's reversible tips. With a reversible tip, he can without much of a stretch clear tip stops up by basically turning the tip 180 degrees to the spotless position and afterward setting off the sprayer.
