    Clinton, Did either one of you lose your sense of taste or smell? Just curious. Hope you both feel better ASAP! Mark

    How are you dealing with life now with the Covid-19 virus situation?

    EVERYONE is going to eventually get COVID. Everyone except me and my wife (famous last words). At least, that's what we hope. We are among the very few that continue to wear KN95 masks RELIGIOUSLY when we are near others. We do not eat in indoor restaurants either. Nor even in a crowded...

    The COVID Vaccination Thread

    Yes! As I mentioned, he was disappointed about it. In other news.. This morning, I received shipping notification for my two packages of test kits from the latest round of freebies. The estimated delivery date was Saturday, June 4. Then, 45 minutes later, I received notification that my two...

    The COVID Vaccination Thread

    I received the 5-pack of Siemens tests during the previous round of free test kits. Those are dated November 2022 and they have remained unused (so far). All of the test kits I got before that were iHealth. ALL of them were dated to expire in either May or June 2022. All of those test kits...

    How are you dealing with life now with the Covid-19 virus situation?

    Have a friend that was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer a few days after his 65th birthday. He started chemotherapy last week and tested positive for COVID 2 days later. He's already taking an antiviral and reports feeling pretty good today. It looks like he'll only have to delay continued...

    How are you dealing with life now with the Covid-19 virus situation?

    The two friends I mentioned in my post above (Friday) are improving. She didn't get as sick as he did. His blood oxygen level had dropped to 92% on Saturday but started improving on Sunday. I believe about 90% is when the likelihood increases that you will need hospitalization. As of...

    Everything Everywhere All at Once (2022)

    It was like watching a train wreck. I was fascinated and horrified at the same time and I couldn't look away. Mark

    How are you dealing with life now with the Covid-19 virus situation?

    The event organizer just emailed all attendees to thank them for attending. He also mentioned that a handful of cases of COVID have been reported (believed to have been caught at the event) and encouraged everyone to get tested. A month ago, San Diego County was reporting about 100 new cases...

    How are you dealing with life now with the Covid-19 virus situation?

    The extra test kits came at a good time. I used 4 tests while I was at the big Magic Convention in Las Vegas. I tested myself every morning, before interacting with anyone else. Thankfully, all four times the tests were negative. A friend asked me what I would have done if I tested positive...

    Feel better soon, Wayne! Out of curiosity, did you test positive on a PCR test or via a home test kit? Mark

    How are you dealing with life now with the Covid-19 virus situation?

    I'm attending a magic convention in Vegas starting on Sunday. The Orleans Casino (where the convention is being held) has a theater-plex inside. I am considering seeing 'Everything Everywhere All at Once' while I'm there during some convention downtime. I would keep my KN95 mask on and skip...

    I have a funny feeling that the facial recognition defendant will be back in the story in later episodes. Mark

    Amazon Prime Bosch: Legacy (Amazon Freevee)

    We watched the first four episodes yesterday. We only planned to watch two, then watch the next two on Thursday to prime us for episode 5 on Friday. But after two episodes we were too darn hungry for more and we binged all four. Yes, gluttony is a sin but we couldn't help ourselves. :)...
