It's amazing how cold 78 degrees can feel when it's been above 90 for more than a week.

mikey's Thread of Penguin Randomness

I won't mind watching hockey without crowds or crowd noise. In fact I will enjoy it more than any other pro sport. I will miss battling for home ice advantage because there isn't any. On the down side, I just can't see hockey lasting without fans. Not enough TV revenue to survive. At least IMHO.

COVID-19

That is because of multiple strains. It might have guessed two strains right but missed the mark on the other two strains.
So it should be much more effective as long as people actually get the vaccine yearly. Not sure the percentage but I don't think a lot of people actually get a flu shot now.

Increasingly, research is starting to coalesce around an unfortunate picture of COVID-19 immunity: People who develop antibodies might not keep them for very long. Last month, a study showed that antibodies may last only two to three months. Then research published Monday suggested that antibodies ...

Never been to Rivers but..... how do they allow smoking in casinos even before COVID? I did a lot of bowling at Meadows Casino and no smoking allowed in bowling part. But lots of smoking was going on in gambling area. I think it is because of money going to taxes. When I went the vast majority of g...

I was raised in a very non-swearing religious family. I still believe in much of it. I especially like to live by the 10 commandments with emphasis on the last 5. That and the golden rule is a good way to live, at least to me.

I did miss the Netflix doc. I just might go look it up. And yes Seven Bridges Road with the harmony is amazing. Just great musicians. Guess we have to thank Linda Ronstadt for putting them together. A few of my favs, Ol' 55, Desperado and Already Gone.

Why is PA still so bad at testing? There are only 3 states (Oregon, Colorado and Idaho) with lower test per million. Must be some excuse. Test turnaround time, or contract tracing timing are more effective indications. There's no reason to get tested if you haven't been exposed or aren't sick. It's...

Because of asshats like this.

The small college where I live (Washington & Jefferson) is planning on starting classes August 17 with things like mandatory mask use and social distancing.

Looks like a lot of deaths for US in world meter today. Hopefully it is just the usual Tuesday peak. With the way deaths are reported, Tuesday is always the peak day for deaths.

Hope they do, you can just feel the water in the air. Hate days like this.
I used to be able to handle days like this, even in a steel mill, but I have to be in AC now a days when it gets like this.

Assisted cruise might be my new favorite thing. I had mine set for 1.5 lengths when I drove back home this weekend and I didn't have to touch my gas or brake for almost half an hour on 22. Of course I kept my foot ready just in case, but the adaptive cruise makes driving almost a little too comfort...

Thanks Freddy. I'm guessing fewer deaths because younger people getting it, better treatment methods, increased testing and older people like me being more careful. Hope it continues, I've had more than enough of this crap. Ruining my summer.

I just realized I sounded like an old man in my last post at age 37. Heh. In any event there are jobs out there for college aged kids who want them no matter what the situation (skipping a semester, just wanting to make some extra $$$). Now that I think about it I was in college damn near 20 years ...
