Sorry to hear the news, @Darkfrog  Here's hoping y'all heal quickly without long term effects. 

Thanks - hopefully the only long term effect is enhanced immunity for all of us!

Ah, buddy. I feel for you. 
I'll be sure to include you in some prayers if you are okay with that. 

Otherwise, hang in there, man.

We're hanging in there, and luckily we're all doing okay, aside from the kids' boredom from quarantining. All prayers, well wishes, thoughts, and good vibes are 100% appreciated!

@Darkfrog, hope you all get well soon!

Thanks, we're steadily improving. Kids have improved to the point where their boredom has outpaced their illness and they are up to their normal mischief again, while annoying, is a good sign I think.

@Darkfrog, hang in there. Y'all will be stronger for it in a couple of weeks. 

Thanks! We are lucky to have mild cases (a few vaccinated/boosted friends had pretty rough omicron cases over Christmas, so it's not always less severe). I believe a big part of was being fully vaccinated with boosters, so I am grateful for modern science/medicine.

@Darkfrog That sucks. Sorry to hear it.  Hope your household can kick it in the butt. And that you have enough energy to be back out on the course next Sunday.

Thanks! Luckily CDC guideline says isolation for 5 days, so as long as I am symptom free after that period, I hope to be able to get out and play with my group on Sunday (checked with them as a courtesy and they're all okay with it). My work has more conservative requirement of 14 days, so might even be able to sneak in a few weekday rounds too, which usually I can only do during Summer at twilight.

Djokovic was allowed back in and now he admits he attended a public function when he knew he was infected. This just keeps going and going.

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

Uh huh. I hear the government can still revoke his visa or something, though.

I found out a couple of hours ago that my eighty-three year old father has COVID.  This is after he told us on Tuesday that the nursing home that my mother is in had nearly 20 staff members AND nearly 20 patients had contracted it as well.  She doesn't have it... yet.

My MIL is in a nursing home and 77 employees have contracted Covid and 3 residents (over time).   It's a matter of time before everyone in the nursing home will test positive.     She is negative but when somebody has a cough they get quarantined for a few days.

I had my first Covid test on Saturday.  I’ve been run down with a decent cold for a few weeks, but it wasn’t until the fevers and chills started that I figured it was time to get tested.  Results came back negative , and a trip to the doctor today yielded some free antibiotics and a nasal spray to hopefully clear this up.

Nobody ever said that smoking cannabis protects humans from contracting Covid-19. Yet that's...

This has been making some headlines recently.  To summarize it, there are acids in cannabis that when heated have attached to the spike protein, in test tubes. It is not generic, store weed and nothing was studied in vivo.

I play Wallyball Wednesday nights during the winter.   Today someone posted that they tested positive today after showing symptoms Friday night.   I'll home quarantine for several days before venturing outside.   This got me wondering though, it would be very difficult to quantify all of the people that would need to be traced from just that one even!    

I'm symptom free btw.

Yes, but it takes you through a prettier UI. 😁

Oh, and thanks Erik, your early notice is a good thing, getting us in before the .gov site potentially crashes tomorrow.  Got mine moving through the mail system...

    • I'm five under the last five times I've played the 15th hole at Whispering Woods. All from the blue tees, and in order… Driver and had about 230 yards in. Hit a hybrid over the back right side of the green. Chipped and made the three-footer for a birdie. This is one of the pins in the fairway. Driver again to the other pin at about 230, hit a hybrid to about 20 feet and two-putted for birdie. Driver just barely pushed, hit the right side of the big vortex swale, bounced right and was on about a 15° upslope right by the cart path (highest pin to the top of the image below). Hit a hybrid over the back left side of the green to the fringe, two-putted for birdie. Driver pulled left a bit with @rwolfe into the trees left, but it bounced back out to the fairway at about 255. Hit a 3W to the front-edge of the green (just short in the fairway). Putted it down to about four feet and made that putt for birdie. Earlier today, hit the longest tee shot in the recent bunch, had 214 to the hole. I was considering 4I or 3I, but @DrizZzY suggested 5I. I hit it hole high in the right rough just a foot off the fringe, chipped it to three feet, and made that putt. This hole as many of you know is NOT easy. That I've had two eagle putts and three eagle chips and have converted all is something in my last five trips to the hole is something I may never repeat. I even said "I'm jinxing myself but I'm four under the last four times I've played 15" to Sculley today. Then hit 5I to it. 😄
