Another beautiful day today. I really can't complain about the weather lately because it's been very nice, I remember when I left Box Wash in Wickenburg I thought the weather was going to be my biggest problem when I got to Quartzsite, but my whole world turned around, as did everybody else's, and weather turned out to be the least of my worries.
I'm drastically limiting the time that I spend on the Internet looking at covid-19 stuff because almost all of it is doom and gloom now simply because doom and gloom is what gets the most clicks and that's all that most YouTube creators care about so they spread their opinions, conjecture, rumors and outright lies not caring who they hurt just as long as they can get that advertising money and sell their merch.
There are a few Covid things that I watch on YouTube such as MedCram which is a very intelligent, very knowledgeable, actual working Doctor who talks in medical detail about what's going on with the Covid, his detailed descriptions are far more than anybody would want to know that's not an epidemiologist, but weeks ago he was talking about the drugs that were going to be used to treat Covid that President Trump is only now talking about.
I watch the daily briefing that the President and his team gives, because I feel it's a pretty good balance of the bad news and the encouragement that we Americans need to deal with it and know things are going to be okay.
I also watch Scott Adams Periscope. If you've never heard of him he is best known as the guy that draws the Dilbert cartoons. But he's got a lot more going for him than just being a cartoonist. He's an MBA, has a degree in economics, written several books having nothing to do with cartoons, is a member of Mensa, which is kind of a club for geniuses, and normally talks mostly about politics. But during this Covid crisis he talks exclusively about the good things that are happening that are going to bring this crisis under control, and I always feel a little better after watching his laid-back, easy-going kind of show.
But mostly what I watch on YouTube are things that make me laugh, shows that are happy with absolutely no stress involved which frequently turn out to be old and not so old sitcoms like MC Hale's Navy, the Big Bang Theory, Married with Children, BBC shows like, Are You Being Served and Faulty Towers. Pretty much anything that's happy, lighthearted, and makes me feel better after I've watched it.
I'm normally a happy person and don't like things that bring me down, so I try to watch just as much Covid stuff as it takes to keep me informed and then move on to something that makes me happy.
