I've periodically checked out the COVID data on the CDC website. Last week, I put some numbers on a spreadsheet and determined that the odds of contracting the disease vary from less than 1 in 1,000 (Hawaii and Montana) to 19 in 1,000 (New Jersey). I also did some death rate calculations. The lowest was Utah (.008) and the highest was New Jersey (.009) There didn't seem to be a huge pattern for red vs. blue states. But, the bottom 9 states when sorted for death rate (i.e., those with the lowest death rates) were red and the top 6/7 were blue.

Today, I did some number crunching from data found on the CDC website. For a long time, the top of the curve (number of new cases per day) was 4/6/20. The number of cases went from 1,237 on 3/15/20 to 43,438 cases (reported that day) on 4/6/20. That's an increase of 42,201 in 16 days - when the country was completely shut down. We had a similar increase from 6/3/20 to 7/3/20 (30 days) when the cases jumped by 43,042 cases (14,676 on 6/3/20 to ...

Can I just say, I am so so grateful to have found this community. I was losing my mind on Twitter. I've self-censored practically everything on Facebook. Who knows how long we can count on YouTube. I was getting a bit concerned for the future of the whole internet experiment, what with the big companies all but owning us.

I'm not a fringe person by any means and I'm usually the last to find out about the cool new place to be. I stay to myself and try to raise my family in peace. These days, the world is spinning out of control and it's so hard to find people to talk to because it seems like everyone's scared to say the "wrong" thing.

So I guess this is my "Hello!" to you all. I'm just happy to be here.
