10 Things This Week

In no particular order...

  1. We were out at the air force base today and although I didn't quite get my camera out quick enough, I got a few pictures of the Air Force Thunderbirds practicing today.  It's always a surprise because by the time we hear the rumbling engines, the planes have already shot past us!  

  2. Yesterday we went shopping and this is what Walmart looked like.  In fact many stores in our area seem to be very short on stock (I did find lots of ketchup at the Dollar Tree.  I bought two bottles because there is supposed to be some sort of ketchup shortage now).  

  3. Here is an opportunity to binge-watch home improvement shows and earn $1000.
  4. And this town in West Virginia will pay people around $20,000 to move there and work remotely.
  5. This Saturday is free entrance day to all National Parks!
  6. A free online health conference is happening next week (I will definitely be watching!).
  7. Las Vegas is definitely back to pre-pandemic capacity!
  8. And Las Vegas recently got a Carvana tower (basically a vending machine where you buy cars!).
  9. FEMA is offering up to $9,000 to cover the funeral expenses of anyone in the US who has died of covid.
  10. Finally, I am happy that the weather has been so good lately that we haven't had to use the heat OR air conditioning for more than a week.  If we can keep this going for a month or longer it will definitely be a nice way to save some money on our energy bill!


  1. The shortage is not on ketchup. It is on the little packages to put it in for fast food. Good list.

    1. Thanks for the info, all I heard on the news was ketchup!
