2 more players in our beer league tested positive. one is a friend (and FedEx pilot) who I know hasn't played since we re-started 6/22. the other guy is in the same league as our Patient Zero and we're trying to determine if he was present when their teams played each other 6/22, the day before Zero...

sounds like a frakkin' war zone outside my house right now. 2 of my 3 cats are just like, "whatever" but my 1 year old tabby is freaked out. things were fine until my neighbors 1 street over brought out the big ones. I got one semi-decent shot with my drone before I had to land it and run inside the...

The Washington Redskins are doing a "thorough review" of their nickname, whatever tf that means.

"Is it racist?"

"Yes"

What else is there to review?
what if they change the logo to this?

Is there going to be another run on TP? funny you should mention that. here in ATL the shelves are still frequently bare. for what reason, I don't know. one theory is that plant workers are getting COVID and therefore production and supply chains are suffering. in any case, a friend of my cousin's ...

You know what might help? If our president acted like wearing masks is okay I heard on NPR this morning that he did recommend everyone follow the rules and wear masks, socially distance, get tested, wash your hands, etc... He needs to be seen in a mask then. Lead by example. he also claims that he ...

schools around here are giving parents the choice. you can send them back for in-person learning under specific rules or you can continue to keep them at home and distance learn.

I could actually go for some poutine right now.
I'm not a poutine fan. BeaverTails, on the other hand.....

Poutine is just fries with cheese and gravy right? That's what I was thinking. That would have been a good lunch.
cheese curds but yeah.

while picking up lunch today I noticed the car in front of me paid with cash. I know not everyone has access to credit/debit cards but that's crazy! I haven't touched cash since early March. :scared:

That increase in hospitalizations is bad right? hard to say. my hockey league's first positive player is hospitalized in the ICU and being given remdesvir. he sent an email to his team saying he feels "good on the whole, relatively speaking". he's clearly not on a ventilator but is hospitalized.

You know what really grinds my gears...

Mrs Tif was on a conference call earlier today, and asked me to refill her water bottle. I got up and started walking to pick up the bottle, and dragged/smashed my right foot into the corner of our kitchen island. My right pinky toe is now canted, quite uncomfortably, at about a 15° angle out of li...

I must be the only person in here that doesn't enjoy wearing those every day. We do a lot of walking with the kids around the neighborhood and I don't like doing a lot of walking with flip flops and no support. Pretty much the only week I wear them with any regularity is when I'm at the beach. I ha...

Yet our governor won’t close beaches or mandate mask usage.
