News and other Things I’ve found interesting July 18th 2020

Hopefully when this goes live I will have made it to another Saturday. Haven’t done a weekend list in ages. If all goes as former other half has planned. My bike should be on way to shop. Garage should have a few less items in it. And I’ll be one step closer to not having a roof over my head. But I might have food in fridge and cabinets for first time in a week.

Well strike my comment about bike and other things I spoke to soon. But the no home thing still stands.
