What is COVID-19 Part II

What is it, anyway?

The bigger the lie, the more people will believe it. Again I would like to point out that it is a hoax. A joke of the century or centuries.

TdF 2020 Roadbook

The PDF file that contains the deep detailed information on the Tour de France got available to us (the general public). Unfortunately, because of Corona virus, I don't think I am having holidays during the TdF this year. I might be able to take some days off and see some stages.

I keep my fingers crossed.


Back to version 6? LibreOffice on Haiku

Today (August 19) the update was available. The only update I received was the LibreOffice update file. I scanned the versions of them and found that it was a downgrade update. The version got from 7 to 6.4.

What happened?

LibreOffice 7 updates for Windows, Haiku and Mac

LibreOffice 7 updates

I learned that LibreOffice got updated. Now it is carrying the version number starting 7.

A few days after learning it, I looked for ones for Windows 7 (an old PC at work) PC and immediately I got them for it.

Today (August 9, 2020) I got ones for Haiku version of LibreOffice 7. I was surprised to see the updates.

I have not got ones for my MacBook Pro 2010 (so the OS is not Big Sur nor Mojave) yet. The updates have been available but I have not the time nor immediate need for it.

I have seen updates for my Ubuntu (Kubuntu 20.04) yet. The update for Linux 64-bit version is available but Ubuntu people have not made the specific updates yet.


The Windows 7 at work is a French version of Family 32-bit version (or something like that). I don't care. The installed version is a kind of universal package for 32-bit Windows (I assume). After installation, the user interface language turned out to be French.

I can guess and partly understand what the words (on the menus and of alert messages that occasionally pop) so I don't have that much problem using LibreOffice in French. I wish I could switch it to English.

I have been using LibreOffice on my Mac for sometime now.

I was surprised or impressed when I saw the version 7 updates (upgrade) on Haiku OS so quick. How?

Coconut oil for Hannah?

National Championship Road Race and Time Trial Luxembourg

URL: https://www.fscl.lu/

This is the URL of the Federation of cycling sport Luxembourg. It does have a link to the information on the topic but it is not too obvious. One may find the link in the calendar on the front page.

The venue and the circuit courses are shown but not in details.

Coconut oil for Hannah?

I found a video on YouTube while looking for ways to get rid of ticks crawling in the coat (fur) of my Hannah.

This particular video was created by a woman who conceived this method that she claims will not harm any cats as the material she uses is just a pure oil extract that are edible. I don't have a first hand proof that coconut oil is not harmful to cats' dietary system but I think it won't be.

The woman demonstrates that just by applying the slightly heated coconut oil (as it is thick and gelid at the room temperature) the ticks die of seemingly suffocation. Thick gelid oil wraps the ticks and seems to close the pores.

I went to a supermarket and got a glass jar of coconut oil. I am ready if you are (Hannah).

Hannah's catch

Hannah's catch

I have noticed Hannah's change in behavior. Let's talk about it.

I noticed this a while ago and the change was gradual but noticeable. She needs less distance in length to give her a satisfaction of outdoor activities. I used to walk a lot in the forest about up to three hours and half when she was younger. Now at the age of 1 year and 3 months, she needs an area of less than 50 to 80 meters radius in the forest to refresh herself with outdoor activities.

I used to walk and she just followed me more or less. Now she doesn't follow me but she explores the narrow area by herself while I wait for her to come back.

When she gets to be released in the forest, she stalks and hunts. She began catching small animals, seemingly baby mice or rats about the size of my thumb or pinkie. She toys with them and eventually k*lls them.

It's in her blood, a hunter's nature, or in this case, huntress's nature. She doesn't eat them, of course. She just toys with them.

She caught her first catch already last year in the Fall when she was only half a year old. At that time the hunted object escaped as Hannah was not too careful.

She caught and k*lled one early this year in Spring. Since then her interest has been changed. She likes to hunt. She seems to bring the animal close to me before she starts toying with it as if she wants to show it to me for an approval. She does not let me take it away.

I had two cats back in time when I was still living in Japan. They used to bring home cicadas, sparrows, mice and other stuff. They let them lie on the floor as if they (cats) wanted us (me and my mother) see.


Inspector Clouseau (played by Peter Sellers)

His apartment is kept by a male housekeeper called Cato, seemingly an Asian. I don't know if he, Mr. Cato, is a live-in employee or not but he waits for his master, or employer, to come home unsuspecting anything unusual.

Mr. Cato hides himself somewhere in the residence ready to attack the detective and the detective is ready to respond.

It's kind of a play that they do. I liked that. It (this totally foolish ado) is much like the opening short scene found in 007 movies. Mr. Bond is at the final stage of completing the soon-to-be previous assignment and he escapes gracefully when the theme song of the movie begins.

Anyway, what I wanted to write here is the trapping of Hannah at the end of work to come home. I have to catch her and put her in a soft cat carriage bag before leaving work. Until then she freely roams, hides herself, eats, sleeps and relaxes herself in the basement area. She doesn't like to be shackled. She wants to be free. So she won't let me grab her most of the time. I have tried many things to allure her so that I could grab her.

This cat and mouse play is much like the one between Inspector Clouseau and Mr. Cato. I am Mr. Cato and my dear Hannah is Inspector Clouseau or vice versa.

She is clever and learns from her past mistakes.
