    Rex, I was in Kotzebue for a very short time in 1960. I think it was to change planes or a cargo stop. USAF sent me to some pretty remote places.
    Winds, My wife learned to knit when she was 5 years old. You just got a late start. She was knitting wool socks, stockings and sweaters. Back then it was a normal thing for kids to learn to knit. It was war time and a necessity. They had couple of sheep for wool they exchanged for yarn. Some of the older women had spinning wheels and used them. She was lucky she lived in a small village and had some farm ground. They at least had food.

    I learned to crochet about 5 years ago and to knit about a year and a half ago. Lifetime knitters can make miracles out of yarn. My sister used to raise sheep and spin yarn.
    Women in the knit group I attend make much of their clothing. I’m always so impressed. Beautiful things. I got a pair if knotted socks from one for Christmas. They are my favorite. So much more comfy than store bought socks.

    Fixed it. Yes, there are some glitches on FTF that are being resolved.

    Funeral Directors in COVID-19 Epicenter Doubt Legitimacy of Deaths Attributed to Pandemic, Fear Numbers are 'Padded'.....

    https://www.projectveritas.com/news...ovid-19-epicenter-doubt-legitimacy-of-deaths/

    In late April, a Project Veritas reporter spoke with Michael Lanza, the director of Staten
    Island’s Colonial Funeral Home.

    “To be honest with you, all of the death certificates are writing COVID on it, they’re writing
    COVID on all the death certificates,” Lanza said.

    Lanza said DeBlasio might see inflated COVID death tallies as a way to bring more money to New York City. “Whether they had a positive test or didn’t, so I think again this is my
    personal opinion, I think like the mayor and our city--they’re looking for federal funding and the more they put COVID on the death certificate the more they can ask from the federal funds.”
