If there were no mystery left to explore
life would get rather dull, wouldn’t it?

Holidays and Celebrations:


Porte Musings:

The last Saturday in March 2021 and as the COVID-19 numbers are once again increasing in my area there are threats that we could return to Red Level Restrictions. The Jewish members of our community are starting the Passover Celebration as the Christians are preparing to celebrate Palm Sunday tomorrow.

8 days before Easter is the time set aside for Take Your Parents to the Playground Day, If your parents are no longer able to go to the playground with you, take your children or your grandchildren. Stop for a treat or take one with you to share at the playground.

Today is also Brothers and Sisters Day. Since I’ve never had a brother, I’ll just celebrate by getting in touch with my sisters. But we’ll keep 6 feet apart and wear our masks. 😉

National Tweed Day

Hospital Admitting Clerks Day

Find a Rainbow Day


Quarantine after travel Day 14 +1.  Still one more day.  Not that it will make much of a difference.  Regulations will still limit the places I can go and who I can see with social distancing still being required.

COVID-19 is still increasing in numbers and effects. There are more than 1 million cases of coronavirus globally, according to Johns Hopkins University.

Canada is reporting 11,131 confirmed cases as of April 2nd, 2020 (the real number is much higher as testing is only being done for high risk individuals and Health Care Professionals in Ontario).  486 cases have been hospitalized, including 148 in intensive care while the number of deaths is now over 105.

Keeping in mind that the USA has more than 10 times the population of Canada,
The numbers for the USA are:

    • Total cases: over 230,000
    • Total deaths: over 5,600
