Yeah, it totally slipped my mind that this event was even taking place. I’ve still been reeling from events arising from recent visits to medical practitioners. I’m stuck a bit in the Windows world thanks to the teaching position I presently hold.

Health

Health matters are frankly just weird right now. I have an ever-expanding cast of specialists that I get to see that cover a fairly wide range of disciplines. Test results have been sufficiently weird that collaboration between specialists will be essential, it seems.

Economic fate of Ashtabula County

The produce giveaways run in partnership with Country Neighbor Program and Greater Cleveland Food Bank are seeing record numbers of participants seeking help. This is not the normal I wanted to have come back. Our economy isn’t in the greatest shape and things are in a bit of a downward spiral.

Oddly enough, we were doing far better economically during the lockdown times and the limited activity times. Local businesses were still able to stay open. We’ve had quite a few closures lately. All that is posted to the OhioMeansJobs search engine right now is work in the retail and medical sectors.

Setting up news services in Ashtabula County

I’m still trying to work out the finances to doing something like this. I may try to seek out donors at the Best Of The County event at Spire Institute being held Tuesday night. Beyond that there is simply no clear path forward.

Starting a newsletter

This seems to be in vogue. I’m not sure it would be successful locally. If I try anything it had best be with low financial investment.
