Yeah they closed down golf courses for the first couple of months here, too.  Until enough people said WTF and pretty much forced them back open.

In two months masks are a thing of the past. Whether governments acknowledge that or not is up to them, but the people will speak with their actions.

I still don't understand why areas of the UK and Canada have closed golf courses. It's outdoor and it's by nature a non-contact socially distanced sport. It's even easier to socially distance than you can on hiking trails.

Seems like the most arbitrary and dumbest thing you could possibly ban.


Speaking of Canada and outdoor bans, they're experiencing a recent surge of cases paralleling that of their Great Lakes sharing neighbor, Michigan:






"COVID has spiked in Ontario, Canada’s most populous province. Last Friday, the province’s premier, Doug Ford, pretty much declared a police state. No, it was already a police state. Ford said that what he was about to do was to enact the strictest measures in all of North America. He wasn’t lying. Playgrounds were shuttered. Police were given absurd powers to question anyone who was outside of their homes. This includes stopping people from moving vehicles. It also closed its borders."

Damn I was going to make a break for it.And keep on going until I got across the Ottawa River into Quebec

Day after Moderna #1, arm is a little sore at the injection site. No other issues.  Knock on wood.

a 5 mile run would be much more dangerous to me than shot #2

Perhaps I should start with one block and work my way up to 5 blocks?

Cardio would of course be good for me, but would have to be balanced against the tremendous impact on my joints. At my size, running would absolutely not be good for my knees and ankles, and feet.

I can sometimes jog on a treadmill as there seems to be more give in the surface, but going for a run in my neighborhood on concrete sidewalks would just be punishment on my lower extremities.

I'd much rather run all day on grass than pavement.  But Florida grass.....parks here in Phoenix have grass, but it's atop some sort of sandy-colored pavement.
.
I do miss the spongy grass of FL.  Probably aided by infinite earthworms, too.  None of that here.  Park grass in the desert might as well be the green carpet atop pavement at old Veteran's Stadium in Philly.

Reminds me of a HS football field on the Rez in Ganado....it was the old-timey astro-turf, god knows how old.  All of us coaches and players were green up to the knees.  And no joke, the places that had splits in the surface - the gaps were filled in with straight-up concrete. 

A random field would have been better....except for the bullheads.
