About This Club

Off-Topic discussions
  1. What's new in this club
  2. People can search and read old/locked threads. Threads could be locked after a certain time frame of no activity such as 3 mo, 6 mo a year, whatever. (Except journals, off topic or other non-question threads) That would inspire new posters to start threads and new threads for updates. They don't annoy me at all but if people want new threads for new topics it's doable.
  3. I don't really understand this mentality and I wouldn't want to live anywhere where people had this mentality. I'd laugh in the face of anyone who thinks I'm less fortunate living where I am compared to anywhere living in and out of lockdowns and people dying alone on ventilators. We've got a month to go until the first vaccinations begin roll out and we've avoided outbreaks and community spread during this entire pandemic. Things could change tomorrow, of course, but that's a remarkable achievement. I can't remember the last time we had a Covid death in my state.
  4. Does anyone over the age of 50 remember high school really well? I went to four different high schools soooooo sometimes I am lucky if I even remember the building or half the people I went to school with. It just took me two hours to remember the name of a girl I chummed around with for like three years. 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️
  5. We enter a state of Emergency tomorrow and a stay at home order.
  6. I don't get caught up in debates. Last night on the Nextdoor app I recently installed on my phone, users started listing restaurants in my area that opened for inside dining. It started with the mention of local mexican restaurant. Mind you, our state is the epicenter in the country right now and restaurants are closed, but take out only. We are under a stay at home order and travel restrictions. Unfortunately, as we have learned, there is no covid police and though it happens, it's extremely rare that any restaurant is fined. It galled me the attitudes and ignorance of some who
  7. We can't do that in the US because people will scream "FREEDOM!!!" and that they refuse to live in a Communist/Socialist society (do they even know what those words mean???) and we have people comparing being required to wear a mask inside Walmart with the Holocaust. Too much focus on individual freedom at the expense of caring for one's neighbor. I already had Covid so technically I don't "need" to wear a mask anymore. But I do because I want to be an example of showing care for others. Also looking into volunteering at a food bank. I do love (really love, not fake love)
  8. It feels surreal to live in a part of the world that has been untouched by Covid-19 so far and hearing about all the deaths in the US and the UK. I can't even comprehend a lockdown. We've been fortunate to have a state premier who has shut state borders with any state that has community spread.
  9. Hopefully we all start respecting people we have previously deemed to be working "unskilled", low paid jobs and stop treating the people who work those jobs like what they do is worthless. Grocery workers, cleaners, care workers, delivery drivers and so on have kept things going during this pandemic, at personal risk to themselves. I can think of some occupations that have enjoyed greater status and pay that I don't think anyone has missed during the pandemic.
  10. You do the right thing and then you get scolded for it. Excuse me for believing in social distancing in midst of a pandemic.
  11. What do you think will become permanent features of life after COVID?
  12. The Night We Met Lord Huron I am not the only traveler Who has not repaid his debt I've been searching for a trail to follow again Take me back to the night we met And then I can tell myself What the hell I'm supposed to do And then I can tell myself Not to ride along with you I had all and then most of you Some and now none of you Take me back to the night we met I don't know what I'm supposed to do Haunted by the ghost of you Oh, take me back to the night we met When the night was full of terrors And your eyes were filled with
  13. One of them was a Canadian. 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️ How embarrassing.
  14. Hm, somehow I don't think those terrorists are concerned with complying with Covid regulations. I may have seen ONE of them with a mask on. So regulations mean nothing to them.

    Doubt so. DC has a law that requires non-residents to get COVID tested within 73 hours prior to entering the city

    I miss The old DC. I lived right outside of it before moving further away and went there there every weekend to unwind. Just a 15 min drive. Whether it was a bar crawl, cupcake cafe around Georgetown, a Caps/Wizards game, a late-night cult movie viewing on E Street, the Wharf fishing market, or any special events - folk fest, cherry blossom, concerts, runs, etc. But since we had riots last year (way before the recent one), it is not the same. I got a buddy who is a firefighter in DC who warned me to avoid the city if possible. Sucks I really want to take my daughter to her first zoo at the Na
  17. I'm really into music so I use tidal. I pay 26.00 dollars for month for master quality music. I love music at it's best form. 96 kHz / 24 bit.
  18. Those traitors better not show up at the ER whining that they don't feel good.
  19. This nightmare is being referred to as a covid super spreader event. Heck if they had sheets over thier heads like the rest of thier ilk that could at least have been better than viking costumes.
  20. "The Old Ebbitt, and even in Mortons." I don't know these areas. I love to eat the cuisines in the countries, too. Says so much about the culture
  21. I bet. With a few months there I'd get round to all the restaurants. Lol. As it was and the folks there were on the "we aim to impress" junket, I spent a lot of time in The Old Ebbitt, and even in Mortons. I love trying different cuisines. Every country. Wandered around the train station. A fine building in itself. Even witnessed a helluva row among a family who were in there presumably waiting for a train!
  22. There is a fantastic Serbian restaurant in the city. There is also a large Ethiopian community, more great food.
  23. Gosh yes Holly. A great city . Which saddens me more to see those photos today..... Great food. I seemed to do nothing but eat while there. Lol. Sadly some restaurants succumbed to the recession. I recall going with a cousin and friends to a place on a corner almost opposite the FBI building. I was discouraged from attempting to get a photo beside an FBI jeep.
  24. We were there two months before 9/11
