Item #1: Little bottles

This past Monday there was a glitch. There was a surge of registrations reaching 100,000. The County’s population is about 50,000. The wait-list is temporarily closed. There was not a bunch of folks from other counties. There was an error in the system. Apparently there were a few other problems, thus they will use this opportunity to conduct additional troubleshooting before re-opening.
Item #4: We are eligible

Item #5: Seattle
Sometime I’d like to show good news from Seattle. However, all the news from Seattle is nasty, but I have hope.
And that, for this week, is the not so nasty news.
