Opening Rose

I have been working from home and sheltering in place, so each day I like to at least walk outside and take a look at my rose garden. Of course, I almost always have my camera with me.

Tonight I decided to share a series of pictures that I have taken of a rose that is slowly opening.

There have been a few days where I have missed taking a picture. I will most likely continue taking pictures so I will perhaps have a follow-up in the near future.

No Jury Duty

Back in February I received a jury summons for the court in Stockton, which is the county seat of San Joaquin County.

The date for the summons was while I was to be in Australia, so I asked for a postponement of my service. The new date given to me was for April 6 when I was to be back home.

Of course a lot has happened since that initial jury summons.

The new courthouse in on the right and the old courthouse is to the left. I had heard that the jury room was on one of the upper floors of the building and had great views of the city. The jury room in the old courthouse was in the basement.

Over the past couple weeks I have been watching to see if jury service for next week was cancelled and finally today the news came that it was.stockton court house, jury duty, stockton california, trial, covid 19I had also been looking forward to taking pictures of the new courthouse, but since I will not be going to Stockton I decided to take a virtual walk with Google Maps and snag some pictures out of the street views.

Instead next week I will be again working from home as I shelter in place. I already have several meetings scheduled for Monday as we use this time to get caught up on documentation and presentations. It is also busy as there is a lot of administrative work for on-line learning which is all of a sudden getting utilized more.

Keep safe out there,

Steven
