• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

I've had an Einstein moment

Well, it finally happened to me. Yesterday, I had my first ever Einstein moment.

Passing the crest of a hill, on my way to Sponge Kitchens in Beckenham, Kent (delicious cream filled cakes and confectionery), I spied a bloke sauntering in the same direction ahead of me (excessive break on trousers, shirt sleeves too long and scuffed corrected grain shoes). Further into the distance I noticed the tiny speck of another bloke approaching.

So, what are the odds of all three of us passing each other at exactly the same moment in time? If you took three people and asked them to recreate that moment, you'd be there all day and still fail. The fact is that all three of us, for a split second in passing, were parallel with each other.

But it gets better... the very next day I was walking along the same stretch of pavement and EXACTLY the same thing happened. I'm not a conspiracy theorist or religious by nature, but I think I've stumbled upon something here. Einstein at least knew what he was searching for - when he came out with his idea of wearing identical clothing each day. I on the other hand feel as if it's been thrust upon me.

Also, what are the odds of each person declining the opportunity to discuss it in further detail? The last bloke positively scurried away as I stifled a yelp, then rushed back to reveal what had just occurred. Sometimes the truth is indeed terrifying.

I sincerely hope that this post is the product of some potent weed, as the evidence ("Sponge Kitchens," "delicious cream filled cakes and confectionery") suggests.

Well, Einstein, you have complete control of that situation and can make it happen 100% of the time. As you described this scenario, it is not hard to do.
