Re: Coronavirus

One of the things the nurse said while jabbing me was that they are experiencing up to 25% no-shows on appts which is why they are quickly loosening up restrictions just to get shots in arms to utilize what's at hand. Yup. This is why you just need to get it, if you have the chance. When you wait, ...

Re: What made your day today?

What a great day yesterday! :rockon: It was a crisp, clear and cold day, odd for late March, and it had just snowed in the mountains, so I took a trip to snowshoe partway up Hood. It just took 2-3 hours to get up the mountain from the highway, and then about 30 minutes to get down... :hehe: I've onl...

Re: Syria

Yeah Trump bombed them too. Not saying he didn't. No argument from me that Trump was a Class A asshole. But his overall record on mideast and NKorea is really impressive. Strategic brinkmanship is not a quality I would ascribe to Biden and his cronies. I don't see this going anywhere good. :scared: ...
