    I've seen lots of videos of kids running races with masks on and had the same thought - wait'll they get that mask off!

          I've never seen Ted as the brightest bulb on the planet and this does nothing to dissuade me.

            Agree, but he sure can shred a guitar.

            • meanwhile, in the wonderful world of the IRS......

              This Connecticut teacher was trying to help his neighbors with groceries, but when he raised over $40,000 on Facebook, he ended up with a $16,000 tax bill

              • Sounds like a bad story about the IRS but it still is income.... if you are going to run a charity you have to know a little about taxes, donations...anyways I'm sure he'll come out fine.


                Twilight Zone had an episode on this theme ...

                They use their first wish to repair a broken glass cabinet, proving the genie's power, and then receive a million dollars in cash upon making their second wish. After they have given tens of thousands away to their friends, an IRS employee visits the shop and presents the Castles with a tax bill that, once they pay it, leaves them with only $5.

                    Do We Still Need to Keep Wearing Masks Outdoors?
                    Science shows that the risk of viral transmission outside is very low. The “two-out-of-three rule” can help you decide whether to mask up.

                    • I think I've worn a mask outside once (when not heading to an indoor location). That was back around Halloween when my wife and I, my daughter and granddaughter went to the local Halloween event at the zoo. I'm an avid masker indoors but don't see the purpose outdoors as I am never really all that close to others outside.

                        I also notice that my habits haven't changed much since we got the second shot. Still fully masked when I go into any place. Still socially distanced. Still washing my hands.
                        The only change is that I stopped wiping things down (groceries, mail, etc.) after a few months. Transmission from touch isn't a big thing, like they thought at first.

                        • I wear a mask if I enter any business, carry one in my pocket for unplanned outside close encounters. A nuisance but no biggie.

                            Ditto on all counts.

                            • i mask-up the minute I go out my front door and even wear when I'm alone in my car. Paranoid? No; but I discovered that the more you wear one the easier it becomes and you don't develop nasty habits like pulling it below your nose. Small price to pay.

                                When I go out and about I wait to put my mask on until the first time I get out of the car, but once the mask is on I leave it on until I'm on the drive back home. With the covid-length hair & beard, getting a good fit around the ears is a bit tricky and once accomplished, no need to redo it at every stop on the excursion.
