I wish the "good friend of this board" a speedier recovery than he has experienced so far.

Re: Covid, and you.

This is interesting for all kinds of reasons. It is a little eerie and awkward but what isn't these days?

Re: Covid, and you.

During corona time I stayed in my property in Athens here and worked from home, but I was so missing the times spending in megapolis atmosphere like in Paris or London, and also I had bad cases with my relatives, but in the end everything was okay. Hopefully, the vaccine will be successfully integrated in our lives.

Re: Covid, and you.

So this was a pretty good one... I was waiting in the line at the UPS Store the other day and there was a lady in front of me with no mask. People have generally been pretty good about wearing masks, so these people are becoming outliers. Well, she had one of those USB vape looking things and proceeded to VAPE IN THE STORE in front of me. She did this a good two or three times and tried to play it off by yawning or stretching. I thought you weren't even supposed to do that during normal times, much less during a pandemic.

Vaping in the UPS Store sounds like something that would be frowned upon.

President Trump and First Lady Melania Test Positive for Covid-19

The news source does not really matter. Itís on all of them. This is going to cause problems...

Re: Covid, and you.

Nothing will change but the next debacle will be by zoom.

He'll survive fine and say "see it's nothing, open up the country!"

Re: Covid, and you.

He has a 95% chance of living [increase that many fold, he's not a joe blow citizen]. He doesn't have to be worried about not getting insurance because of preexisting conditions when they eliminate it, he gets lifetime .gov insurance.

If you've been following this all tracks back to the Amy Barrett reveal in the rose garden, and if I heard right she wasn't tested because she had it in June. Wouldn't it be ironic if she's a long hauler and was the spreader of the whole event, where nobody but the press was wearing a mask of course.

But anybody contagious at an event like that infected many, and that circle has just gotten wider in the gestation period, this is just the first news of it. You had Hicks test positive, they knew it, knew he was always in close contact with her but still went to Westminster for a big donor fund raiser, where no masks were worn, knowingly possibly infected himself. You reap what you sow as they say, let's just hope we don't say live by the sword die by the sword.

The President and First Lady do not have worry about the quality of healthcare they are receiving. Still, no one really knows what will happen, though, a Zoom debacle of some kind is probably expected.

I have not been keeping up with who spread what where. People should wear masks. I don’t know what else to say.

Actually, Congress could pass a stimulus package. That would be useful, appreciated, and they are the only people that can do it.

Re: Covid, and you.

Blue wants more than Red are willing to give, and it would just get vetoed anyway.

Everybody that was in contact with Hicks should have been quarantined immediately, instead they took Hicks and a couple staffers off the plane and still flew to Westminster to infect a bunch of his big money donors. You can't fake news this stuff up. Crazy.

Re: Covid, and you.

Here's one I don't quite get either: We went to lunch today, and they were taking temps at the door, which is a great idea. What isn't a great idea is when someone comes in, and they repeatedly are in the red, and they take their temp over and over and over and wipe the gun and wipe their forehead until they barely drop into the orange (still 100+ degrees). Then they seated them. Boy I feel better.
