I had many retirement plans involving flying mostly canceled or postponed. Yet I should admit that the pandemic has been the main reason I stopped flying.

Driving is good, if we have the extra time. However, time is precious as we become more involved with local community activities and family. Maybe that vacation travel is becoming a luxury we can’t afford! Shame!

I mostly help family and friends now. I would love to write a book about the sacrifices we all should make, but my efforts to start are confounded by many elements: confusing news (why are we buying oil from overseas while also selling oil overseas?); war; so much money going into fusion while new ideas for cheaper renewables are underfunded? Where to start!
