Isolation Day 46 - A Sad Closure due to Coronavirus

46 days is a long time to be basically confined to your home. I'm hoping the local small businesses and restaurants survive the shutdown. I think the first restaurant I want to go to is Da Marco's Italian Place. Actually, I just went to their website to copy their link into this post and saw a note that they have decided to close the restaurant permanently. This is really sad news. I loved their fettuccine bolognese. They have a pizzeria in Bethesda and I hope they are doing well.

Shelly and I went to the grocery store to get some food for us and her mother. It's really quite an effort and time commitment to shop. But we're getting used to it.

I watched the movie Dirty Harry starring Clint Eastwood as Detective Harry Callahan of the San Francisco Police Department who attempts to track down a psychopathic rooftop killer before a kidnapped girl dies. When he is found Harry abuses the murderer's civil rights putting him back on the streets. Once he is released he hijacks a school bus and Harry must go after him again. Only Dirty Harry can stop him. This is probably my favorite police action film, and it gets 8 out of 10 stars.

I watched the movie Inferno starring Tom Hanks. It's based on the Dan Brown novel featuring Robert Langdon, the Harvard professor and symbologist who follows a trail of clues tied to Dante, the great medieval poet. When Langdon wakes up in an Italian hospital with amnesia, he teams up with Sienna Brooks (Felicity Jones), a doctor he hopes will help him recover his memories. Together, they race across Europe and against the clock to stop a madman (Ben Foster) from unleashing a virus that could wipe out half of the world's population. It's a good movie, but I am biased because I love Dan Brown's books. I give it 7 out of 10 stars.

Here's a throwback photo to September 2014 when Shelly and I visited India. Here we are at the magnificent Taj Mahal.

And in closing, Shelly and I saw Whitney Houston a DAR Constitution Hall in Washington DC maybe 20 years ago. Apparently she did not like it cold in her venues so the A/C was turned off. It was the middle of July and very hot in there, so we were sweating through the whole concert. Otherwise it was a good concert.
