I often enjoy Nandi Bushell's (@Nandi_Bushell) music on Twitter,
but the Bushell family video about social distancing called
Don’t spread it! Stay in and shred it!!! is extra special!
Thank you, Bushell family!
On Monday, March 30, 2020, while Julie and I were finishing our blog post, Peaceful Parks While Social Distancing, we got to talking about how we appreciated all the humor and creativity we were seeing on social media while everyone was social distancing. We were impressed by some of the very gifted people sharing their talents, and we liked how some people were using humor to cope with the stress of the current coronavirus crisis.
I decided to grab my @sos_jr tweets and retweets from this stressful time period that I thought demonstrated positive humor or creativity on the Twitterverse, and some tweets that had some personal significance. Please share those that you enjoy by retweeting them, so that your Twitter followers can share in a laugh, or appreciate the talent.

This is one of the best! Thank you, Bushell family! To everyone reading this blog post, please be sure to share their tweet!

Thank you, Jürgen Bosch, for the Twitter Direct Message
On Thursday, April 2, 2020, I received a direct message from Jürgen Bosch (@Bosch_LAB) with a video from his Coronavirus: How it Ticks n What we are Doing to Stop it talk at the Case Western Reserves Institute for the Science of Origins (ISO). (FYI, during the coronavirus crisis, their meetings have been moved online.)
The Institute for the Science of Origins (ISO) is a collaborative team of faculty members and researchers from diverse scientific disciplines seeking to understand how complex systems emerge and evolve, from the universe to the mind, from microbes to humanity.

I shared Coronavirus: How it Ticks n What we are Doing to Stop it on Twitter -- please retweet the following so that others will learn this important information:

Thank you, Patricia Kellogg! -- Little Fires Everywhere
Thank you, Patricia Kellogg, for tagging me in this video about this Shaker Heights-inspired show.

CBS Sunday morning it's about Little Fires Everywhere. This news segment is actually filmed here in Cleveland, Shaker Hts, not like the series which is filmed in LA @LittleFiresHulu @sos_jr @cleveland19news @amy91774 @sandon53 @CBSSunday @JeffTanchak19
I love how Heinens is Weinens on the grocery bags in the TV show. But many references to Plain Dealer!— BarbaraSandon Norris (@sandon53) April 5, 2020

Update about Eggshelland 2020.
Delivery Error! Tasty Victory for My Neighbor!
As Julie and I mentioned in our blog post Peaceful Parks While Social Distancing, we have been ordering take-out to support local restaurants. On Monday, April 6, 2020, we ordered delivery instead of take-out, which ended up netting FREE pizza for our neighbor.
Pizza!— Stuart O. Smith, Jr. - sosAssociates.com (@sos_jr) April 6, 2020
Ordered pizza delivery & learned from a neighbor on the next street that the driver took to their house by mistake!
So now both my neighbor’s & my family will have pizza tonight!
Pizza for everyone in both households! pic.twitter.com/6n5Hginj7O
Pizza!— Stuart O. Smith, Jr. - sosAssociates.com (@sos_jr) April 6, 2020
Enjoying pizza late due to delivery error.
The delivery error is a GREAT TASTY victory since my neighbor received FREE pizza!
FREE pizza is always a good thing.
I got extra pizza for a future meals

The reason that the video above was created is that all the long-distance trail organizations do not want backpackers to hike at this time. I was supposed to be in New Mexico on Monday, April 6, 2020, preparing to start a hike on Tuesday, but...
With @CDCgov guidelines to avoid discretionary travel extended, our Southern Terminus Shuttle will not run during April. We urge anyone considering a trip on the CDT or currently on trail to adhere to local, state, and nat'l public health recs: #StayHome.https://t.co/jWIiS2Vt9h— CDTC (@CDNST1) April 1, 2020

Related Blog Posts
I normally like to list related blog posts that I have written, but during this coronavirus crisis, it is very sad to think that most of the places I normally write about at sosAssociates.com/Blog are currently closed. The few places still open are our local parks, so please read the recent blog that Julie and I wrote about our experience safely visiting the many park systems we have in Northeast Ohio:
