• 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

Yeah it's highly disturbing to see those full groups. They need to see the videos from Italy where doctors/nurses are having to CHOOSE which patient to treat versus let die and where family members can't even hold their loved ones to say goodbye. :mad:

I have no guilt going for rides since that's pretty much the only thing I'm doing outdoors. The tidal basin trip on Thursday did give me some pause - it was a lot busier than I was expecting. Roosevelt Island on Sunday was fairly busy too but people seemed more spread out plus I made sure to keep moving and not congregate anywhere. On my way back, I did notice the police had blocked off some roads to prevent access to the tidal basin part of the mall.

In other news: I am getting quite ripped just off the previously posted home workouts and 2 ~15 mile rides. #coronagains.

Good to hear about the workouts. My body is sore from them as well.

Knocked out almost 17 miles on the Arlington Loop today. Not many folks out. All the park areas were closed with signs warning people away. Pedaled by Whole Foods and folks were lined up out the door six feet apart, winding across the front of the building. Reminded me of the mess hall at Camp Victory in Baghdad with everyone staggered out in case a mortar round landed. Ugh.

Big fan of Kamakura Shirts. I wish they made more of the Sport collar, been trying to get some basic blue OCBDs w/ sport collar. I have one, but could use a couple more.
I'm not actually clear on the difference between the sport and the regular. The collar points look about the same as my 2016-era OCBD but feel less heavily lined (although I can't tell if that's just a difference between the oxford cloth and the chambray). We'll see how it feels after a few washes. Their tokyo slim fit is perfect for me so hopefully they didn't change that.

I have a few Kamakura shirts, including "regular" OCBDs and "Sport" OCBDs. From what I can tell, the regular OCBDs have lightly lined (and lightly fused) collar interlinings, while the Sport have either no or very light collar lining, with no fusing.

While both are nice, I personally prefer the softer collar on the sport models.

Lots of teenagers not heeding this. Walked around a school field for exercise yesterday in Potomac and saw a bunch of kids playing hoops. Saw another bunch of about 6 HS or college kids sitting on a blanket eating pizza. Had to bite my tongue not to say anything.

It just occurred to me today that I'm eventually going to need to get my hair cut. Not that anyone but my wife is looking at me at the moment, but I've already started wearing sweatpants more often than I'd care to admit and eventually I'm going to turn into this:
