The Weekend Edit: April 24, 2020
Hi, friends! Here are some links from around the web that I enjoyed this week 🙂
Recipe of the week:
- “Quicky ground turkey or beef casserole”. This is the ultimate in comfort food and it’s super simple to make. We’ve made it with both turkey and beef, and I think I prefer the turkey version.
Non-Covid and Covid-adjacent links:
- “Finally, Some Privacy: After 10 Years, Giant Pandas Mate in Shuttered Zoo.” Maybe they should close the zoo every year…
- “A Closed Border Can’t Stop This Elderly Couple: ‘Love Is the Best Thing in the World'”. Aww…These lovebirds won’t let a pandemic or a border get in their way!
- “Statistical ‘Which Character’ Personality Quiz”. Mine was Annie Perkins from “Parks and Recreation”. Guess I have to watch “Parks and Recreation” now.
- “This TikTok Of What Employees Do With Product Returns At Ulta Is Truly Upsetting and Eye-Opening”. Have you seen this? If you love beauty products, you might have mascara running down your face after watching this video because you will cry. And it’s not just Ulta, but all stores that sell beauty products (Sephora, Target, Wal-Mart, Bath & Body Works, etc.).
- “Homeschooling: Math teachers aren’t paid enough…I QUIT!” I am a K-5 math specialist. This made me laugh.
- “How Fiction Authors Are Using Myers-Briggs to Define & Refine Their Characters.” Oh, man! This article led me down a lot of internet rabbit holes.
- “The Enneagram types of 99 fictional characters.” This is fun! See what fictional characters are the same Enneagram type as you.
A few links on Covid-19 (in case you just can’t get enough Covid in your life):
- “The Shift Americans Must Make to Fight the Coronavirus”. From the article: “No person is an island; the nation that believes in individuals more than it values community risks its own survival.” Something to think about as states consider opening back up.
- “The Answer to All Your Social Distancing Loophole Questions is No”. In case you’re asking whether it’s okay for you to do that one thing…
- “A dinner table chat between husband and wife may help solve the coronavirus mask shortage.” American ingenuity at its very best.
- “Wuhan’s 11 Million People Are Free to Dine Out. Yet They Aren’t.” Is this America’s future?
- “How Donald Trump Almost Killed My Husband.” When we drive around in our community, life almost looks normal and I wonder if I’m being overly cautious. Then I read stories like this.
- “Snohomish County sheriff says he won’t enforce Washington state’s stay-home order.” This makes me mad. Snohomish County is the location of the first identified Covid-19 case in the U.S. If the virus is anywhere, it’s there.
In case you missed this week’s blog posts:
Have a great weekend, everyone!
