So far outside the box you can't even see the box from here.

I was talking to a buddy of mine on the phone. He just had his much dreaded annual checkup. The guy had been concerned about his blood pressure. At his last visit they were talking medication to keep it under control. My friend really hates to take meds. With that in mind, he made some changes in his life.
Diet? Exercise? Nope. He did two things. He limited the amount of time he spent following the news. While he didn’t go on a total news blackout, he cut way back and basically skimmed the headlines. The second thing he did was avoid his step-father. The old man has terrible politics and wants to inflict his opinions on everyone else.
Apparently those two things worked as his blood pressure was excellent.
You might be interested in his plans for a coronovirus pandemic. He’s serious about this. He said he’d drop off a check for at least four months rent at his landlord’s. Then he’d go camping off in the woods by himself. I guess if you don’t have contact with people, you don’t catch diseases. The guy has his gear and supplies all ready to go.
I live in an area of NH known as the Great North Woods. I'm in my dome-i-cile out in the county with my lovely wife and a varying number of family and friends
