How are you guys staying safe during the Coronavirus Outbreak?

For the next several days or so, a lot of us will have to stay at home as the Coronavirus Outbreak continues.  I am staying safe by staying inside of my house as much as possible.  I will be walking to my mailbox on most of those days … and, of course, if I do go outdoors during the day, I am doing my best to stay at least six feet away from the nearest person.  Of course, I am still writing blog posts on my computer in my house’s “computer room” four to five times a week.  In fact, today, I am writing a post at home on my computer … and I would like to know how you guys are all staying safe during the Coronavirus Outbreak.

Please enjoy the rest of your day … and stay safe and stay home during the Coronavirus Outbreak.  We will do our best to get through it together.

Joseph Has A Question For You: What should Joseph do in his “computer room” in the early evening hours?

Now, the days are starting to get a little bit longer … and it may be hard for me to stay indoors after my “cut-off times,” but I’m doing a good job in doing so so far.  My outdoor “cut-off” times are 2:30 p.m. on weekdays and 5:00 p.m. on weekends.  I will try to keep myself busy in my “computer room” in the early evening hours … and I have a question about it today.

Here’s my question … what should I do in my “computer room” in the early evening hours?  I may clean a little bit and give myself “me time” while I’m in my “computer room” in the early evening hours, but you guys can give me suggestions as well.

Joseph Has A New Chair In His Computer Room!

On February 28, 2020, I said good-bye to my old chair, which was in my computer room for a few years.  It was one of the most relaxing items in my house … and, that same afternoon, I said hello to my new chair, which is from Serta.  I purchased it this past Tuesday at Wal-Mart in Washington … and I really like it a lot.  Believe it or not, I was able to try out the chair before I bought it.  They had a “sample chair” there … and I liked it so much, I decided to buy it.  The chair is very comfortable … and I hope you guys like it as much as I do.  Now, Serta is a company that makes mattresses and it also has their counting sheep in their commercials, so don’t be surprised if I just happen to fall asleep in this chair while I’m in it.

Joseph’s Top Blog Posts For March 2020

The month of March is almost here … and Spring will officially be here in just a matter of weeks.  Today, I’m going to tell you about the blog posts that I’ll be writing down in March.  I already wrote one of these posts down yesterday, but, of course, I hope you will check it out in March anyway.  See if you can guess which one it is before you read this post any further.  I’ll give you the answer in the middle of this post.

At some point in March, I will write my 1,325th blog post … and it will be entitled “Joseph’s 1,325th Blog Post Is About A Classy Shirt!”  I can’t tell you which shirt I’ll be talking about yet.  I can assure you … the shirt that I’ll be talking about in that blog post will be a classy one.  I will give you a hint.  It will be about one of my polo shirts.

Another one of my blog posts is going to be entitled “Derek Papakie Turns 30 Today!”  I wrote this blog post down yesterday, but, of course, I hope you will check it out in March anyway.  In case you haven’t seen it yet, let me tell you what it will be about.  In the post, I wished my cousin and friend, Derek Papakie, a happy 30th birthday.  Derek is a terrific person.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “Joseph Puts ‘The Classy Test’ To The Test.”  Now, I will be talking about “The Classy Test” in the blog post … and I will ask you guys questions that are in this test.  Now, I first talked about it in a blog post last March … and I figured I should talk about it again.  I will probably ask myself these questions in the post as well.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “Joseph Still Has A Classy Chaps Button-Down Shirt One Year Later!”  I will talk about my plaid long-sleeve Chaps button-down shirt in a blog post in March.  The shirt is very classy, to say the least.

I will also use my blog’s features in March.  Let me tell you how I’ll be using them this time.

I have owned my new Hewlett-Packard computer for one year!

Now, for the past year, I have had my new Hewlett-Packard computer in my “computer room.”  I have used it almost every day since I started buying it back on February 7, 2019.  When I first talked about it in a blog post last year, I said that I would try to keep it for a long time.  Well, let’s hope I can do just that.  My computer is fantastic, to say the least.

Now, when I first bought it at Best Buy in North Fayette On February 7, 2019.  I got the computer’s tower and the keyboard, but I would not by the LG monitor, which goes to my computer, for six more days.  On the afternoon of February 13, 2019, all of my computer’s part were in my house … and I started using it the next afternoon.  I still like this computer one year later … and I hope you guys do also.

Joseph’s Moment Of Peace: I need some “me time” in my “computer room” at 6:00 on weekday evenings!

Now, I am no longer taking my evening walks around National Hill.  In a matter of days, it will be harder for me to stay indoors after 6:00 in the evening, since it will be getting darker after that time in just a few days.  Now, I am actually giving myself a little “me time” in my “computer room” at 6:00 on weekday evenings.  To me, it’s very relaxing … and it’s beneficial to me since Brady has eaten up my “me time” over the past few months or so.  I have to watch Brady on certain days … and it eats up my “me time” in a big way.  In this day and age, having “me time” is important, even if it’s just for a short time.  You can probably do it in a private room in your house or apartment.  Maybe you guys can give yourselves “me time” at 6:00 on weekday evenings, just in case you had a tough day in either work or school.

Joseph’s Top Blog Posts For February 2020

I am back on my computer again.  I started using it at 5:00 this morning … and, today, I’m gonna tell you about the blog posts that I will be writing down in February.

One of my blog posts will be entitled “I have owned my new Hewlett-Packard computer for one year!”  I will talk about my new Hewlett-Packard computer, which has been in my house for nearly one year, in a blog post this month.  It seems like I just bought it yesterday.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “Remembering Piglet Five Years Later.”  In the blog post, I will talk about the five-year anniversary of the death of my bulldog, Piglet.  Piglet, who was my bulldog, died nearly five years ago at the age of 12.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “Joseph is still ‘super’ three years later!”  I will talk about my grey Superman T-shirt in the blog post.  I have owned it for nearly three years.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “7,500 Views And Counting.”  My blog will hit the 7,500-views mark … and, if it does hit the 7,500-views mark this week, I will talk about it in a blog post before this week is over.  Of course, it is possible that it may have hit the 7,500-views mark while I gave my computer a break this past week, so I may have to say that it has been seen at least 7,500 times in the blog post this month.

I will also write my 1,300th blog post this month.  It could be about a person, a place or a thing.  What do you think it will be about?

I will also use my blog’s features in February.  Let me tell you how I’ll be using them this month …

Joseph Likes To Watch WQED on weekends!

This week, I am giving my computer a break … and, today, I will write a fantastic blog post for you guys.  Earlier this week, I used one of my features in a blog post … and, today, I will talk about something that I like to do on weekends.

Now, on weekends, whenever they’re not showing programs that would air during the pledge drives, I will watch WQED for several hours in various rooms of my house.  Now, on Saturdays, WQED doesn’t show children’s programs on the channel … and I will be able to watch some cooking shows and home improvement shows whenever I get bored.  I will watch it for several minutes at a time between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Saturdays … and, then, from around 2 until 5 on Saturday afternoons, I will watch Channel 13 while I use my computer.  The shows are very informative … and I happen to like most of them, especially “This Old House” and “The Woodwright’s Shop.”  Now, on Sunday afternoons, I will watch WQED for at least three hours or so while I use my computer, but, if they’re showing the long-form pledge drive programs, I will watch Create, which is on Comcast Channel 201, if I see anything interesting on there.  On Sundays, WQED airs children’s programs on Sunday morning … and, then, they show local programs for a while.  I’ll watch one or two of their local shows on Sundays, especially if it’s one of Rick Sebak’s programs.  Then, I’ll leave Channel 13 on if I see a show that looks interesting enough for me to watch.  Otherwise, I’ll probably switch over to Create for a while and watch some things on there for a while.

If any of my Pittsburgh friends need something on watch on weekends, since there won’t be too many interesting sporting events on our local channels for a while, may I suggest watching WQED for a while on weekend afternoons?  I know I will do just that.

This Sunday morning, at around 5:00, I will start using my computer again … and, at 7:00 that morning, I will tell you about the blog posts that I’ll be writing down in February of 2020.  Enjoy your day, my friends!

Let’s Talk About A Past Blog Post: Joseph’s New Hewlett-Packard Computer

In February of 2019, I wrote a blog post entitled “Joseph’s New Hewlett-Packard Computer.”  In it, I talked about the computer that I purchased at Best Buy back on February 7, 2019.  At the time, I purchased the keyboard the computer’s tower.  Six days later, the LG computer monitor would come to my house.  I still like the computer … and I have used it nearly every day since I got it last year.  I would start using my new Hewlett-Packard by Valentine’s Day in 2019.  In fact, next month, my computer will be celebrating its first year in my house … and I will talk about the event in a blog post next month.

Here’s the link to the blog post …

Joseph’s Moment Of Peace: Joseph’s Dusters

Today, I’m going to tell you about an item that relaxes me in a big way.  I have actually owned this item in one form or another for several days now.  I bought Swiffers Dusters at Big Lots a few days ago.  I was able to use them in my computer room whenever I had the chance to do so … and this item relaxes me in a big way.  You put a special duster on the yellow handle … and it really picks up the dust.  Then it locks the dust that I just picked up inside of the dusters.  Recently, I bought another box of Swiffer Dusters … and it has Febreze in the dusters.  There are 10 dusters in the box … and I previously bought a box of Swiffer Dusters not too long ago.  There were five of them in a box … and it had no scents in them.

Next time, I will give you a chance to revisit another one of my blog posts from my blog’s third year.  The post will be about one of my friends and I wrote it down in January of 2017.

In honor of my blog’s fifth year, I’d like to show you five blog posts that I wrote down on or around May 16th in previous years …
