  1. I’m so sorry. 😔 Many hugs to you and your DH.
  2. Hugs, Dawn. I’m so sorry. We’ve been through this twice, and it’s so hard. We stayed both times, and it was peaceful. Again, I’m sorry. 😔
  3. We got electric scooters for DH, myself, and our two DD’s. We’re having fun with them so far, especially since the weather isn’t so dreadfully hot.
  4. I think you’re referring to my post, but that’s not what I said. OP started off by saying that she didn’t want to get sued under the new law. She then said that she didn’t live in TX and was going to avoid going to TX. So, I was just wondering why she’d be concerned about being sued under the new TX law if she never plans on being in TX.
  5. I’m so sorry for your loss
  6. Editing…11 U.S. Marines and 1 Navy medic have been killed 😔
  7. https://www.wsj.com/articles/afghanistan-kabul-airport-explosion-11629976397 😔
  8. Just saw this new article… https://theconversation.com/covid-long-lasting-symptoms-rarer-in-children-than-in-adults-new-research-165701

  10. I looked through Dr. Gotlieb’s Twitter account a little, and it seems like he primarily looks at that Rt number as some sort of future indicator. This is from a few weeks ago… But it’s not super precise… I hope Dr. Gotlieb is right about the South, but I guess we’ll have to wait and see. P.S. I’m sorry about your DH and having to be locked down…I hope things get better for him soon.
  11. I think he uses info from here: https://covidestim.org I don’t know much about it or if he uses any other information.
  12. I hope he’s right… https://www.cnbc.com/2021/08/23/covid-dr-scott-gottlieb-says-delta-covid-surge-in-south-has-peaked-.html?__source=sharebar|twitter&par=sharebar
  13. Chicken and potato soup. DD doesn’t feel well so she requested it.
  14. I watched the Dana Perino/Bill Hemmer clip. Yes, they asked those questions, but I kind of feel like these might be questions people who are vaccine hesitant might be asking. They had on Admiral Giroir, who was part of Operation Warp Speed, to answer the questions. He explained that the approval was not rushed and was conducted by talented people and that Americans should feel great about getting the vaccine. Basically the takeaway (or at least my takeaway) was the vaccine is safe…go get it! ETA: He also discusses booster shots. Here’s a link to the clip in case anyone is interested… https://video.foxnews.com/v/6269148738001?playlist_id=938973798001#sp=show-clips
  15. Our checking account was completely emptied by someone using Venmo, or what appeared to be Venmo. I have no clue how they did it because we’d never used it before, but after that we’ve definitely never tried using it.
  16. I don’t know if any of you have seen CNN’s Clarissa Ward, who has been reporting from Kabul, but she tweeted out that she was on a plane flying out. I was glad to see that because she looked to be in some very unsafe situations when she was reporting.
  17. According to TMZ, Aaron Rodgers may be interested if they can work with his football schedule (probably not going to happen, though). I don’t watch Jeopardy, so I don’t know how well he did at hosting. https://www.tmz.com/2021/08/20/mike-richards-steps-down-as-jeopardy-host/
  18. Just wanted to add-on to this thought… ”This profound global inequity would not only be a humanitarian disaster, but also a significant long-term risk for Americans, as scientists agree that accelerating global vaccination is the only way to prevent the formation of deadly new variants.” https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2021/08/18/why-biden-administrations-recommendation-booster-shots-is-mistake/
  19. This makes me so sad 😔… https://www.msnbc.com/deadline-white-house/watch/afghan-war-vet-i-will-never-forgive-my-country-for-this-we-must-save-the-people-who-saved-me-118815813529

  21. Saw this thread on Twitter with other studies referenced. Not sure if it’s helpful, but thought I’d share. You should be able to click the link and see the thread with several doctors commenting…
  22. Old Navy ones might work for you… https://oldnavy.gap.com/browse/category.do?cid=1164877&nav=hamnav%3AMasks%3AMasks for the Family%3AShop All Face Masks
