Column: Some are coronavirus overachievers, some aren’t

Not all of us have had the time or mental energy to bake, garden, clean or read long presidential biographies. I haven’t achieved much, but I got a few things done when I took a week off. I write about that, and about what some of you readers have been doing, in Wednesday’s column.

This is one that I’ve been thinking about for pretty much the entirety of the pandemic, with my staycation, and the opportunity to achieve a couple of things, finally providing the spur to write it.

Column: Flu flattens his Super Bowl Sunday, but soup was on

I was back at my desk Tuesday morning for the first time since last Wednesday morning, when I went home sick. (I came in that day sick, too, but needed to get my laptop, notes and a few things, knowing I wouldn’t be back for a spell.) Usually I try to do something fun on Super Bowl Sunday, but it didn’t quite work out this year. That’s the subject of Wednesday’s column.

Column: On road trip, roadside motels beckon the budget traveler

I’m back from vacation, but writing about my vacation. Specifically, about the pleasures of a road trip and about the perfectly fine, and perfectly priced, roadside motel. That’s in Wednesday’s column. I plan to follow up Friday with some further notes on things I saw, did and ate. From there, we’ll be back to business as usual — whatever that is.
