Well, maybe we're all not over 70 here at the POI Factory but I know a lot here are and that's cool cool

For those who are now taking RMDs from retirement savings, you may want to look at the options now available for 2020.

what happens with credit card recurring payments

When those charging are closed for business, due to the pandemic?

Meaning, they're not open for business, so one cannot get the services that the recurring payments are for. One can also not reach the business to stop the payments, because they are closed.

Things to do when you can't do anything

OK folks, let's help each other out a bit. This idea came to me as I posted in another thread about a visit I had yesterday with some friends. We conversed across the front lawn obeying the rules of social distancing but still being within eyeshot and it was truly uplifting after being quarantined in my house after work for 7 days yet.

The benefit begins to phase out for individuals making $75,000 in income and ends completely for those making $99,000 or more.

Covid data and more

I just want to share a project of mine to my fellow data-heads. I've created a web-app at https://www.omjroute.com/ which uses data abstracted from here for several layers (tools/set layer).

Also yesterday I created a query at Data_World for current Covid-19 files, parsed it into JSON and turned it into a layer in my app. Here's my blog post about it: https://www.oldmanjim.com/daily-status

Thanks to all the folks who maintain POI files!

Just wanted to post a thanks to all who maintain the POI files here!!!

Where I live the houses were reassessed and mine doubled.

It's unprecedented because I've lived here since 2002.
