@Sturgis,
This is really hard, because I am terrified on being on the ocean under any circumstances.

I guess I would pick something motorized because I could aim it toward land and get back on terra firma ASAP.

With my eyesight, better take a telescope.

@Sturgis,
Right now? Mail in via absentee ballot. Ordinarily, I go to vote really early. About 7 AM when the polling areas open in the morning. But now, I like millions of NYers qualify for mail-in ballots. I'm fine with helping the system maintain social distancing especially when there will be fewer people to maintain polling places given the current COVID crisis.

@ehBeth,
I'll take Bon Appetit. Some 40 years ago, I browsed through several magazines that I happened upon. For a brief moment, the idea of a career in the food industry tempted me. Then I looked at the cooking process and prep, and reality returned.

Shop it around to the indie publishing houses. I have a deep, unmovable bias against self-published books.

Magazines have some pluses but don't recycle as sell. Newspaper gets soggy quickly...
