2:01 PM 2/24/2018 ET.

No excuses for not replying to notifications except going for tests this morning 

after visiting Dr. Kwok's office 2 days ago. I have driving duties to stores or 

pharmacies in Wooster and Orrville as well as a trip to Cleveland just recently.

I'm going to start publishing all my posts between 1:00 and 5:00 PM. 

If I'm late with one, I'll publish it the next day in the same time frame as above.

Sorry for being late. Thanks. Forrest. 

Looks like I'm already quite late, I try to keep to the above schedule from now

sun, Venus’ brightness can surprise you!"
