    Maybe some good news from the CDC

    So we don't "trust the science" anymore? Or do we just trust the science that fits our political agenda? I'm so confused.

    Many parents are hesitant to give their kids a Covid-19 vaccine. What if schools require it?....

    I used to tell my school kids, "I don't do what ifs." I still don't.

    What Have You Missed Doing This Summer, Due To Cancellations?

    We were going to go take a tour of southern England, and maybe a river cruise in the fall. Our (formerly) weekly bridge group, all seniors, cannot meet. We rarely eat out anymore, but I actually think that's been OK. We're not going to Key West either. However, we have instituted outdoor happy...

    Florida 5th grader asked to remove Hooters-themed mask

    Another case when a call to the parents would have been better. "Dad, I'm pleased your son is wearing a mask. Some of the other children have made unfortunate comments. Perhaps it might be better if he wore something plain." And done.

    What’s the hardest thing you have done?

    Oh dear God! I feel like I have lived a charmed life compared to y'all. I had some rough times growing up, or so I thought, but nothing compares! I've had some rough patches, but still... God bless you all!

    That lovely aroma....

    Oh yes, the Thanksgiving turkey!! So deliciously inviting!

    That lovely aroma....

    BBQ, which in Texas means smoked meat. Chocolate chips cookies right out of the oven. Fresh bread, right out of the oven.

    Question about procedure.

    Why would you even go there? Did you honestly think it isn't political? I think I know the answer.

    Are we getting too "virus" crazy?

    That's tyranny. Absolute tyranny. I think you're the arrogant one.

    Are we getting too "virus" crazy?

    Wow. Pretty Draconian, isn't it? Not to mention dictatorial. And in the country, probably unconstitutional.

    Are we getting too "virus" crazy?

    I'm curious about what other measures you would enact to curtail other people's freedom? More fines? Some jail time, perhaps? I walk my dogs every morning. I don't wear a mask. Sometimes I say good morning to other neighbors. Sometimes we're closer than six feet. How much should I be fined? And...

    Did you ever remember crying when any celebrities died?

    No. Was I saddened? Yes. But tears? No. I do remember finding an old paper that related to my old boss from many years ago, and I realized that at that point, he had probably passed. I shed a few tears.

    I hope these actors star in a new movie

    I so don't care about Hollywood actors who make big bucks and spout political nonsense as though they were intelligent beings. Are some of them eye candy? Sure. But keep your mouth shut. I don't care about their political views.

    Lottery winners what & what not to do

    I googled this subject, and it seems that 70% of lottery winners wind up broke. OMG!!! I promise, if Dave and I won the lottery, this would not happen. We are very prudent with our money, and don't "live large" at all. I'm pretty sure that wouldn't change. We might would get a financial advisor...

    Are we getting too "virus" crazy?

    I think we are. I either wash my hands or use sanitizer after leaving a store. With all the hand washing and sanitizing going on, I have to wonder what it's doing to our immune systems. It's surely not helping them. We almost never pay in cash, and we put our card into the machine ourselves...
