  1. Yeah, other than the pastor and just a few frail elderly people ( though many frail elderly people are not), we are pretty much the only ones wearing a mask. One friend who is doing weekly chemotherapy doesn't wear a mask in church. She teaches in the elementary school where children don't wear masks. We don't go to Sunday School anymore because no one wears a mask in the small room. And I mean, that is the only place I venture out really. Our church is doing our normal Halloween Carnival outside on the lawn this year. They need workers, but I'm not signing up. I doubt people will be wear
  2. Ok, so did I read this correctly, a Dodgers player tested positive and was pulled from the game. Then he came back out for the celebration without a mask, kissed his wife, hugged other players, etc. It is why we will never control this virus.
  3. I guess I wonder where you guys expect to find friends after all this is over. If I used everyone's criteria, I would have no friends.
  4. Dawn, Are you sure he can register? The window for registering for us closed several weeks ago. I would call to make sure. Here is the information with the various state deadlines. https://www.vote.org/voter-registration-deadlines/
  5. You don't live in Texas, do you? It is all around me. Vaping is a HUGE problem with young people in our town. (Which I know is a little different, but for people over 40, I would say 1 in 3 smoke around here at least. I have several members of my Sunday School class who do.
  6. So, this doesn't surprise me at all. This isn't where I voted but still very close to me https://www.kltv.com/2020/10/26/whitehouse-polling-site-closed-after-worker-tests-positive-covid-/ Then here is the story of a Denton experience: https://www.nbcdfw.com/news/local/two-poll-workers-walk-when-co-worker-declines-to-wear-mask/2464052/ I'm sure there will be many more since you do not have to wear a mask to vote or to work at the polling places: https://www.texastribune.org/2020/10/22/texas-masks-poll-voting/
  7. I hope you are right. We'll see. People told me this would be over in a few months when all of this started. Oh... Disney won't close. Oh..schools will be normal this year... Yeah, not seeing it.
  8. Yep, that is what drove my depression as well. I did not come out of it until all but one child was gone and I could pursue my own life. Having a job and then working on my master's made me so incredibly happy and fulfilled. I am not JUST A MOM. I want to have a purpose and calling that has nothing to do with that. My husband got that, why didn't I is what I felt at the time. Anyway, no help but the change of circumstances is what freed me. Then we had Covid and I feel like I'm back at square 1 sometimes. I want out of this house!
  9. Besides, I finished the paper and it is actually good and I'm so happy I figured out how to do a presentation on a very volatile subject. So my mood is much better.
  10. Hyperbole to make a point and I still think 3 years may be optimistic if people will not get the vaccines or wear masks then it will be decades.
  11. You are right. We have made strides. But in this area I see people smoking ALL THE TIME. A few businesses like the bowling alley in our town have smoking areas. MMM..interesting correlation between smoking and the can't make me wear a mask crowd. Never thought of that before. Here there definitely is one.
  12. Then why haven't we done it??? I think it will be at least a year, maybe up to three before we get it completely under control.
  13. That wasn't his point. His point is we don't care about smoking so we won't care about Covid. Not that we shouldn't. WE SHOULD LESSEN IT BY WEARING MASKS, NOT GATHERING IN GROUPS, SOCIAL DISTANCING. there. Do you understand that as a physician he wants to bang his head against the wall because they won't do that. But then he thought why should that be surprising when half a million people die of smoking a year and we shrug our shoulders. He is NOT using it as an argument to throw up our hands. He is saying America already has.
