     I was certain that you would be thrilled after all these weeks.  Our 
restrictions here were relieved slightly this week, but nothing that had been 
affecting me.  I've cycled about 120 miles this week with two trips of about 30 
miles each, a couple of shorter trips of 15 miles, plus a lot of excursions to 
the post office, etc.

     My frustrations with the coffee shop wifi were not unique.  I stopped by 
later to visit with a friend and while there another shop keeper came over and 
asked if anyone was having trouble with the wifi as he had no connectivity at 
all.  That says that the problem is not my laptop not the coffee shop's hub and 

     My medicare provider has come up with a nice offer of a free at-home 
exercise and health monitor for free, either a Fitbit Inspire or a Garmin 
vivofit 4.  Can't get any information at the moment but I will tomorrow.
