Thanks, Jake. That's about it. He just emerged from his bedroom for some food, so I think the sleep is helping. I'm chopping, dicing, mincing like a madman over here. I usually do a lot of this type of stuff when he goes to bed, but getting it done during the day is so much better! It's so much easier without someone asking questions or getting in my way in the kitchen. Hey, there are much bigger problems in life, so I'm grateful I can be here for him. How are you doing?

Doing as best as one can do in this whole world… Visited Park Slope again and even more businesses on 5th Avenue are closed. Happily a few I still care about are still open. Sadly I’m starting to really absorb the sadness of what’s happening.

For example, the line for NYC food pantry boxes near me was all the way down the block for more than an hour. Meaning as fast as they handed them out more people showed up. That was the case for 1.5 to 2 hours straight.

The song Florida is about Bobby. It was written by his ex-wife and sent to him and they used it for a song.

The song Doorman by The Exbats was about an actual event that I was at. Inez got kicked out of a club they were going to play in because she was underage. So the entire crowd walked out of the club and walked down the street to another club and set-up and played. It was a magical night.

@Jett, pops is on a very strict diet due to his diabetes and kidney disease so I use a bit of sodium free garlic and herb spice, but on my salmon I use a nice rub by the Hungarian Szeged brand.
