So like I said yesterday, got 1st pfizer shot at notre dame university of MD last night, nice process.  Slight arm pain at site of injection but probably wouldnt notice it if I didnt know I got the shot. Otherwise no problems to note as of now.  Had the equivalent of probably about 3 beers last night after the shot, seems no effect. I did hydrate very well yesterday, probably close to 100 ounces of fluid and am hydrating this morning....So all good as of now! Off to the beach after work:D

yeah I just checked anyone anywhere can get on a plane.. they should probably advertise that more.. I think a lot of people think that they arent allowed to travel.

I think a lot of people are concerned about flying because they’re packed into a tube with a couple hundred of their closest friends who may or may not have COVID. The others aren’t traveling because they don’t think they need to given the public health emergency.

This was a really hard week, but I’m happy to introduce my newest art acquisition. This is the one of a few I just got:

At Ten Eyck Brewery between Stevensville and Easton on the way to the beach! Not bad. Decent beers. Nothing spectacular but nothing bad. Been here yet @CAPE?

I’ve been there a couple of times. Nice spot. @Scraff is their distributor.

I hope you are going to DFH while you are at the beach. Chesapeake & Maine usually has aged WWS/120 min IPA on tap. And stop at the brewery in Milton- the shop there has all the WWS varieties plus aged ones, and aged 120s. 16 bucks a bottle but worth getting a couple, as both are supposedly better with age. I picked up a 2008 WWS last weekend.

sensible states like florida

Florida is doing very well considering their elderly population. Maybe one day you will be able to put aside the snark and self-righteousness even in the face of the facts and get with the program. I have my doubts, though. Stay home, stay safe is the best bet for you, I think. We are good out here.

People are literally waiting on the CDC and Dr. Fauci to tell them it's OK to live again. That's why they are fully vaccinated and still hiding out with masks on.

They may be goners.

"hiding out with masks on"

lol

'People' are living, and wearing masks where it is required and prudent to do so. Can't say I have come across a single person who is sheltering in place over COVID and waiting for some official OK from Fauci. What a pathetic misrepresentation of reality.

Hitting the IPAs early today? Yeah, life is good, don’t worry about my rants. Just a crazy person over here. As long as the liquor stores stay open I wouldn’t worry.

I haven't said a whole lot, but maybe a few noticed I was gone for stretches of time over the past year..... Anyway. I met someone online back in a chat room (for trains) late Feb last year, she lives in SoCal. So, yes, I HAVE traveled a LOT these past 15 months or so, probably 12-14 times. I've flown into SNA, LAX, SEA (first meeting, her sister lives there and she wanted an 'escape' in case I wasn't who I said I was lol) and we've met in STL and DEN a few times, plus seen my son there too. I learned that it is WELL worth the extra 40-60 bucks to fly Delta, they DON"T pack you like cattle and I've only had one cancel/reschedule with them. I started with United, they changed my flight EVERY time and 'packed the bus' each time. I flew with them this last time on short notice and they did it again, so there IS a pattern, just an FYI for those flying. And so I can officially announce that after almost 8 years after my wife passed, I am getting married again in October. Never thought I would be saying that, but she is an awesome person and we are a perfect match, strange how that happens when you aren't even trying to look. She is moving here, likes the slower pace and her company is letting her work from here the last few years she wants to stay. I guess we can call this an announcement, lol.

“Required and prudent” to wear a mask and distance when fully vaccinated with the wonder vaccine. No way that makes sense to you, @CAPE. You aren’t that sheepish. You can turn off the virtue signaling with me. I get you. 

Last I checked there aren't too many who are fully vaccinated. The reality is masks are still required to enter stores/places of business, and in most cases one's place of work. How about Airports? Airplanes? Yes, it seems like the reasonable thing to do. Or you can refuse to mask up and essentially shelter in place, have everything delivered, and hang out in the back yard or whatever. At least you would have your "freedom" I guess. You don't do that though. You do exactly what everyone else does. The drive-by hyperbolic grandstanding posts are entertaining though, lol.

LOL at agreeing to obey dumb rules you know make no sense because that’s just the way it is. Wake up, dude.

Vaccine demand is already waning. You will never get to the 70-80 percent numbers that have been thrown out there. Then what? Mask and distance forever? You are smarter than that (I think).

The idea that the vaccine refusers are the ones hiding at home is one of the biggest misreads of all time. We are all out here waiting for the rest of you. 

Who exactly are the people 'hiding at home'? Be specific. And it sounds to me like you must be pretty sheepish, because anyone who is "out there living", is complying with COVID mandates and protocols, or you wont be getting too far. Well, maybe you have a private jet. The rest of us just wear the masks when required, and- wait for it- we don't hide at home.

If you simply obey all of the clearly BS rules and regulations that change every day and from county to county and make zero sense for vaccinated people, you will be fine. Just obey, and there will be zero issues. What’s so hard about that? Come on, obey already or else.

You piss and moan in banter on an online weather forum. But you obey. What do you do to eradicate the inconsistent BS rules and regs? Nada.

Dude, at least I am here complaining about it. You are here actively telling people they need to obey or else they "won't get very far" and gaslighting everyone into thinking this all makes perfect sense.

You have been moving the goalposts ever since I replied to your OP. Seriously, go back and read it.

Didn't you just take a trip to Florida recently? Did you fly via a commercial airline? How far would you have gotten without "obeying" all of the inconsistent rules and regs? Not hiding and being "out there and living" means you are absolutely complying with(obeying) COVID protocol. This isn't difficult to comprehend lol. 

Now, where did I say all of this makes perfect sense? Ofc there are inconsistencies, and pretty much everyone is tired of all of it at this juncture, but what the hell good does it do to complain about it on a weather board? How does that change anything? It's like a lot of laws/rules/regs we are required to obey that seem illogical or unjust..

I am trying to be patient and optimistic that the combo of getting the majority vaccinated, and social distancing/masking, will mitigate spread and thus replication/mutation, and get us back towards normalcy. This virus isn't going anywhere though, and at some point there needs to be acceptance of some baseline infection rate as "normal". The higher risk groups should be fully vaccinated over the next few weeks. The restrictions should be/need to be significantly relaxed and then lifted over the next couple months.
