yes, we will obviously enjoy ourselves tonight

but,............ there will be the feeling of the threat of the virus

I worry when I see so many folks 65 and older out in this great restaurant, that they could be infected there tonight and not be able to survive.
Maybe they shouldn't go out.

I agree, but obviously they've decided to risk it.

I try to keep my distance from them.

some folks are strong headed, especially at that age.

Guys, come on.  Betting on deaths is gross, regardless of what point you're trying to make.


Ya I don't remember Mdot stating we would or wouldnot get there And the fact they count the same person numerous times if they keep failing isn't accurate IMO

Just got the next season's subscription at the theater... And upgraded the seats. I never thought my wife and I were "balcony" type of people anyway. Orchestra level for us, dammit.

So assuming 2021 isn't canceled due to COVID, I have that to look forward to.

2020 sucks

Hubby is slowly recovering from his rotator cuff surgery and my brother is hoping we can finally meet up in Nemaha, NE for the internment of my mom's ashes -been waiting since she passed in February. 

Meanwhile, my ex-husband was just diagnosed with lung cancer and his doc is worried it has already metastasized to his brain.  My brother-in-law is continuing his fight against skin, lung, and brain cancer and my mother-in-law is currently cancer free.  

So looking forward to some semblance of "normal" - although that seems to mean major illness for my family members, so maybe a new normal would be better.

Looking forward to:

Taking a family vacation with my wife and daughter.

Seeing my folks in AZ who are hunkering down and isolating due to COVID-19.

Walking across the street from my office to the bar to visit the bartender, and his staff, and consume the great food he offers, that is far better than bar food.

Achieving justice while not being fearful of disease spread simply by walking into a courthouse atmosphere surrounded by dozens of people from every background, half or more of whom do not socially isolate.

Going to a wake or funeral and greeting my neighbors or old friends and expressing my condolence, rather than mailing a card and gift certificate.

putting this here cause it might become a bit political..........

I look forward to politicians working together for the good of the American people some fine day.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Tuesday that he will not pass a coronavirus relief bill in the Senate which does not include liability protections.

“We’re not negotiating over liability protection,” he told CNBC as Congress looks to craft a coronavirus relief agreement.


Why would it be important to Dems to be able to bring lawsuits against healthcare workers and businesses?

I'm all for holding China and the WOW liable, but not Doctors, Nurses, healthcare workers, and others.
Why is it so important to protect insurance companies and corporations from liability to American people for either corporate negligence or recklessness? If you are in a car accident, you are governed by the laws of negligence as it pertains to civil liability. Should we require an exception from these standards for corporations when they act unreasonably and someone is injured or dies? Isn't one of the best ways to contribute to ending a pandemic to require corporations to abide by recognized legal standards? You and I do not not get a pass from that standard in our everyday life. We will be sued if we run a stop sign and injure someone. Why should a corporation get a pass with regard to the way it treats  employees and customers? Liability standards with respect to employees are more stringent because we have workers compensation.
Why does Wal-Mart, Target and Costco require masks for employees and customers? Why doesn't Fareway Stores require masks? Have Wal-Mart, Target, Costco, the CDC, and epidemiologists helped  establish a standard of how a reasonable corporation treats employees and customers? Maybe, and maybe not. A jury of 8-Iowans can decide. I wouldn't want to be on the side of Fareway Stores.
Why didn't Tysons require social distancing when the pandemic hit, and either immediately require face shields and masks, or the social distancing standards of the CDC? Eventually they did, but they knew their plant conditions and CDC recommendations and did nothing at first. Tysons has spent plenty on lobbyists seeking a free pass on the liability, so let's give that to them. Their workers don't have that power.
In Waterloo I was told 5 employees died at the Tyson plant from COVID-19. If Tysons knew or should have known there was a probability of death or serious injury did they carry on business as usual, and if so should they have been allowed to carry on business as usual in a pandemic? I just don't understand why corporations should be immune from lawsuits, when you and I are not immune.
When you run a stop light and hit someone you are held liable, and your insurance carrier pays the damages.

I'll have to stop by if/when I get to the eastern side of the state

I'm certain there are a few very nice golf courses nearby

In lieu of football, the Mrs. and I booked a couple of long weekends up north this fall. Neither of us have taken a proper break since January, and it gives us something to look forward to before the snow flies. 

I also bought a proper road bike, and I very much look forward to putting that through its paces.
