I realize that many of you probably had never seen a picture of me, or at least, hadn’t seen one for a while. That is me at the left. A slightly crazy smile, with a hint of mischievousness behind it, or at least I like to think so.
I haven’t been writing for Internet Monk for ten months, but plan be a regular contributor for the foreseeable future. Here is a hint of what you might be seeing Fridays in the coming weeks and months.
Anxiety, job loss, suicide, depression, side effects, and the year that was
The headline might give you a hint into what was a difficult year. (Possibly a series)
Back in the saddle
Why 2019 wasn’t all bad, and why 2020 looks to be a lot better.

Meanwhile in Canada – A thorny problem
Why the balance between economic growth, climate change, western alienation, and Indigenous rights has become a thorny problem. (Might become a multi-part series)
My Bucket List
Can you guess my age from the recent picture? Why a bucket list now? What do I want to accomplish?

A look into the statistical changes that have occurred over the last eleven years.
The books beside my bed
I haven’t been able to do much reading over the past year, so I have another large accumulation to get through.
Expect a combination of short synopses and full post reviews.
Missing a friend
An encapsulation of some of my favorite Michael Spencer posts.
Whatever happened to Michael Spencer’s commentary on Mark?
I will provide an update on where it is at and some plans for the future.
The Corona Virus
I would like to do a weekly check-in of what we might expect over the next few weeks. Format still to be decided.
My predicted trend published last week is still holding true for this week.
I said the number of dead last week was 637. I had included some of Friday’s count in that number. End of day Thursday it was 565. As of writing now, it is up to 1491 (wait, now it’s 1383, somehow it had dropped over the last hour!?!).
The cumulative number of fatalities can now be calculated by the formula 1.56 * (24 + X)^2.12 where X is the number of days from yesterday (February 13th).
The number dying each day is increasing on average by about 5 per day. The formula for this is (24 + X) * 5, using the same value for X as above.
This will be a trend worth watching over the next week or two to see if it changes.
So those are some of the things I would like to write about this year. I am sure other issues of interest will come up as the year goes on.
What else would you like to see me write about? Is there anything in the above list that catches your attention? Anything you would like expanded upon?
As usual, your thoughts and comments are welcome.
