The numbers are ticking up for daily vaxxing, from what I read.  So that’s some good news.   My wife and I can’t wait for the under 12 to be approved.   It drives us crazy that non-vaxxed adults are doing whatever they want with their kids while we mostly keep ours home and limit contact with people until it’s safer.

My wife said there was a long line at Walgreens yesterday for people getting the vaccine.   Fingers crossed.

Our school district announced that they are going back to masks. It will be required for anyone under the age of 11, and then strongly recommended for anyone not vaccinated and recommended for anyone vaccinated.

My wife (vaccinated) will likely wear one. My son will have to wear one. Honestly, I’m a little relieved. I think it’s the right choice, given the circumstances. There are probably better ways to do it, but they would involve mandating the vaccine for students and staff. I’m betting that’s coming before the start of 2022, but this is good enough in the interim.

It would be nice to watch Covid slowly just fade away as vaccinations increase. Unfortunately the dopes who have refused to get it will dream up some other reason why Covid faded. Or we’re in for another lockdown as Delta and other variants surge and they’ll say, ‘ see..what good is the vaccine any way.’ Again, profound ignorance.

The anti-vaxers have a ton of excuses.  I have heard many of them.  I have an unvaccinated friend (yes, I even have stupid friends) who quite often "cherry-picks" articles from alternative publications that support his view and he texts them to me.  Anything to support a bad habit.  Smoking is good for you...

My wife has a cousin whose wife is completely off the rails.   I mean it’s a planned pandemic, micro chips and Bill Gates are behind it….or worse.   She has had so many posts taken down on FB for the misinformation and crapola that she spreads.   She, albeit briefly, was posting about how the vaccine gets in your blood and makes you magnetic.   So yes, she believed that you could stick keys to your head because of the vaccine.

kind of makes deluding yourself you can make that forced carry (when you can’t) seem sane….

My school just announced similar last night:  masks for all, regardless of vaccination status, when indoors on campus, with some exceptions like if I'm alone in my office.  Students who plan to return for the fall term must either be vaccinated or have an "approved exception or medical exemption," although that's been announced for a while.  Tomorrow is four months since I got my second shot, so I'm good to go as far as that goes.

Edit to clarify:  I have no problem with the policy.  "I'm good to go as far as that goes" was my saying I don't have all my lesson plans for the term already in order, that sort of thing.

One more month and you can get your booster shot...

My keys didn't stick to my head until after the second shot.  I figure the whole car will stick to my head after the booster shot...

I tried screaming “I am MAGNETO” after my second shot (with a double dose of alien blood) and was un-politely asked to leave and never come back.  I tried attracting something metal into my hand by flying across the room, but ended up with a bad hand cramp.

Being a resident of SW Missouri, I guess I shouldn't throw stones.  It's almost like they're having a competition, except they've forgotten that LSW.

In OK, schools are not legally allowed to require masks, even for those who are too young to get vaccinated.  😞

I'm glad to hear that the vaccine can make keys stick to your head.  Maybe it will work on the five simple keys from a while back?

You are supposed to wait 5 months before getting a booster shot.  Some folks are finding a sneaky way around the current restrictions and getting a third shot.  Apparently they are the opposite of the anti-vaxers.  Extra-vaxers.  I've read that once Pfizer gets full FDA approval then boosters will become available.  Supposedly that approval is due sometime in August.

So then nothing for Moderna...my five months are up already. Ughhhhh

The people I noticed who got vaxxed early, some of it was they knew an inside person, other than knowing exactly which sites to hit and when. Like people who were fully vaxxed by February/March.

Kill slow play. Allow walking. Reduce ineffective golf instruction. Use environmentally friendly course maintenance.

    • As the case move forward, the LIV golfers will be able to get discovery, which means they'll get e-mails, documents, etc. from the PGA Tour. They'll also be able to depose PGA Tour people. Right now, all they have is their own e-mails, their own statements, etc. They'll hope to be able to get more evidence to support their claims through that process.  Additionally, to get a TRO, they needed to show a likelihood of success on the merits. That's a fairly high bar. When it comes to trial, they'll only need to show through a preponderance (more than 50%) of the evidence that their claims will succeed. It's less of a bar than needed for the TRO. That said, the judge is very skeptical of their claims. In front of this judge, it does seem like they are unlikely to win. Right now, they are probably exploring whether to voluntarily dismiss the case and file a slightly different version somewhere else.
    • What does something like that even mean? They want to be as successful as they can? Yeah, no kidding. But the PGA Tour is run by the players, the members, who write and ratify their own rules, and hire people to enforce them and engage on their behalf with sponsors, etc. The PGA Tour largely does. The two quoted statements really contradict each other a bit - if the PGA Tour wanted "all the power" they'd be branching out across the globe far more than they are. Also, the PGA Tour granted releases for their members to play in Saudi Arabia, but only when the LIV tour was formed with events in the United States was there any real action taken. Well, others have other very real problems with LIV. And I am referring to more than just the source of funding.
    • The more I think about it - LIV isn't great, , but the PGA Tour seemingly wants all the power and that isn't great either. Golf is due for a major restructuring of power, the game doesn't just exist in America and it should be played equally on the highest level across the entire world. The only real problem I have with LIV is the dumb format. I would like to see half the season played regionally, USA, Europe, Asia, then the second half the year played globally with the top players from all of the regions, one tournament every other week similar to Formula 1. Every large region gets a single major event, and then The Masters b/c its special. LIV gets the middle eastern region .
    • This has not happened to me ... yet. I mark my ball with a pink line, and I've never seen anybody else do that. It makes it easy to identify which ball is fine. That said, I think if you play enough golf, it will happen at some point, so I'm betting it will happen to me. Hopefully, it doesn't cost me too much when it does.
