I went to graduation with the future Dr. Mrs. B.J.

Unfortunately a cousin of mine that I was close to decided it would "make sense" to have her wedding the same weekend as my graduation, and I was in the wedding party. It screwed with a few things graduation weekend, but my girlfriend was a sport and came to the wedding anyway.
Geez BJ,

Anyone ever say you looked a heck of alot like Jim Kelly??

My department just got some unwelcome news... our students have been pulled from their clinical rotations. They are integral to our current staffing model. Things will not be normal at our hospital for some time, it seems. We are a trauma center, providing OB and other specialized services including advanced neurosurgical care, and we are headed into a pandemic with fewer resources. My wife's department at another hospital heard the same news.

Awesome.

Hope we continue to have masks available when we intubate patients we consider at risk. I've purchased several of my own (more of the kind I use when working with silica or making epoxy dust, with disposable covers) out of an abundance of caution.

Made steak tonight and invited my mom over for dinner, elbow bumped her and we wondered when we'd next spend time with her. She's elderly, lives alone nearby. We'll do her shopping but aren't going to hang out much for the time being.

Europeans.  ;)   Probably lining up for his swab, sitting in his Audi A5, listening to a Dvorak’s string quartet.  Helps kill the time.  :lol:   Then there’s waiting for test results....  oh the humanity! Burdened by overbearing European socialism!   ;)
Lat night my wife found out that the Berlin State Opera was live streaming Bizet's Carmen.

They reason was that large events in Berlin were closed to the audiences due to the virus, so they decided the show must go on and they live streamed it for free.  During one of the intermissions, they panned the camera over the empty seats in the opera hall.  

 

Grrr...

Michigan just cancelled all schooling K-12 for a minimum of 3 weeks.  Now I wish companies would get on board too, or a bunch of people are going to get screwed and have to take their time off to take care of their kids at home.

Still waiting on word here, spring break is now. I am guessing they aren't going back. Changing spring break travel plans from a train trip to a sailing trip.
my trip to Bonaire has been cancelled in April. My spouse's school told her that if she left thew country, she would have to do a 14 day self quarantine when she got back.

My chipper little facebook post (below) won me a visit from our superintendent yesterday morning.  :)   We're a small K-8 district with two junior highs and the district office is a five minute drive away.  She spoke with me as I was standing outside my door monitoring my classes for the entire day. "Everything ok Owen? I saw your facebook post last night..."  "Yup, Christine, just holding class during a pandemic.  Nice to see you here."  "Oh... well you know you can always contact me with any questions or concerns.  We're just following directions."  "OK, gotcha, have a good day."  

<<Canceling open house and field trips in an 'abundance of caution' while still holding classes in which groups of 30 kids intermingle with 6 different groups throughout the day plus share cafeteria time....

I'd hate to see what an 'abundance of carefree abandon' looks like. Cycling the student body through spring photos yesterday was a cheeky monkey move as well.>>

I should've asked her why she didnt 'Like' my post.  Most local districts decided yesterday to cancel classes. Starting Monday.  bwahhh!  So insane. I'm going in (well, near) today because of some stupid protestant work ethic.

Shoulder bump, Michigan State style.

Latest from my community: 
"Due to growing parent and community concerns, Frederick County Public Schools will be closing schools beginning Monday, March 16. Schools will remain closed through March 27 with the understanding that the closure may be extended. All school and extracurricular activities have also been cancelled through March 27. School Superintendent David Sovine has sent a letter to FCPS families and staff detailing the closure and the division’s ongoing response to the coronavirus. http://bit.ly/2xCBsrt
