We lived in Springfield from 1974 to 1989. I worked at SMSU then for a couple of insurance brokers and Presbyterian Manors before coming to the Chicago area. Loved living there but when we go back now it just looks crowded.

Read the early results of the beer survey. Almost forgot Baltika. It's at Binneys and Caputos in the Chicago area. Saw it first in DC at a Russian bar.

Working on the master bedroom with new lights, outlets, and fixing plaster walls. The house is getting close to the century mark. This enforced isolation means the time table Might? work. Home Depot and Menards are getting my bar business. Well, the governor was upset with the early partying for St Pats at the bars so today he declared them closed as of Monday night. That screws up our pizza night on Tuesday. Primary election is Tuesday so this also really screws up lots of what would be a normal Illinois election. Hope everyone is keeping their social distance so this flu can die out.
