So at work today, we all sat at our little desks with a mask down around our chins and pulled them up when we got up to get coffee, bathroom, etc. 80 seats on our floor and 10 of us were up there today. Average distance was about 10 feet to our closest other person. 
At lunch 6 of us went to the lunch area on the floor, took our masks off, ate lunch and talked for 45 minutes, got up, through away our trash and put our masks back in to work. 
We all laughed our ass off at how ridiculous it was. And we’re all vaxed

Starting to see mask mandates returning to DoD facilities. Masks required at all times indoors now. Not required outdoors if you can socially distance.

Zero vaccine talk so far.

Edit: also a halt to returning people to the office. Telework back in style again.

Basically a return to April.

It rarely goes longer however. 

I was in a training a few years ago that reviewed a hospice scam in Mississippi.  It involved a couple of dirty docs who got kick backs from the hospice service and kept re-upping the hospice care.  I think the total recoupment they were ordered to repay was north of $3 million.  Some of those patients were on "hospice" for nearly 3 years.

We halted the “return to work” initiative that was supposed to be in place by Labor Day. That got pushed off to mid/late October. But with the holidays, it’ll be pushed back until winter, then another surge will occur, and that will get pushed to spring.  So 2 full years at home.

I haven’t seen more than 2 years. Most that go that long are dementia patients.

Guns out

 

I've definitely developed a little fetish this season for outfield assists.  Never felt that tickle before but they are exciting plays, emotional roller-coasters (hit! but no, thrown out!).  That's a great throw, even for a Yankee.

It’s true.  Everything evens out a bit… likely regresses slightly to the early season computer models a little bit. You fear regression when performing well and look for it when underperforming.  Snow or sports.

How often do you leave your house? Serious question. You sound like a hermit guy I know who is really into lockdowns, mandates, and the like. He isn't even affected because he is always home. He has been "on lockdown" for like 25 years straight already. 2020 was like a dream year for him. He was finally the normal one.

Maybe we should be asking you this question.  You post non-stop 24/7 on this board.  I'm concerned you have no life.  Living off the grid in Randolph, NH can't be good for anyone's mental health.  

It wouldn't' surprise us if this was you in a few years:

Man sounds like a great guy.  Why would living off the grid effect your mental health? Are you sure living off the grid is a bad thing? Do you have an issue with rural people?

Another anecdotal observation. Out to dinner last night in the suburbs.  Zero mask wearing. Warms the soul. 

Some of you know I'm in the seafood business. We've been crushed the last two weeks.  People in the big cities have stopped going out to eat.  The media doing a number on us.

LOL “off the grid” in Randolph. My high speed Internet there is faster than the connection at my Delaware beach place.

Here in CT many popular restaurants are moving out of the cities and into suburban locations. Seems to be a big trend happening here around New Haven.

I’ve been on the road this week meeting customers. The number of nurses I meet with that are unvaccinated and refuse to get it is eye opening and quite refreshing .  Long discussions about how this is not like the traditional vaccines like Hep B, Tdap, shingles etc. The scare tactics that f the media are at all time highs and it’s really sad to see how so many believe it and but into it.

Yeah and there’s already a nurse shortage that is going to get much worse if there are vaccine mandates.

Bangor Fair will have a Covid vaccine booth at the entrance for anyone who wants it. You know, those that still aren't sure or don't want it and figured they'd try to get away from life and covid for an an enjoyable day at the fair with the kids, but then be greeted by more vax pushing. wtf is wrong with this world.

“Get vaxxed and then put your mask back on and socially distance please!”
