  1. This is basically how we did it (from Florida) late last year. Southwest to LAX, then PAL to Manila. We spent one night at a hotel near LAX.
  2. At least in the areas directly fronting the pacific, I think people to the south of the center probably had it much better than people to the north. Here in Tandag, we were on the south side and I think the mountainous terrain turned it into a major rain rather than wind event. Here's a pic off Windy.
  3. Power was out for us from Thursday to Sunday. Internet came back up today. We are OK in Tandag Surigao del Sur where we came to spend the holidays with my wife's family this year. We were in the cone of death up until just before the storm made landfall. We were on the south side of the cyclone, so winds from the west that were far slower due to interference from the mountains. I have a friend that did the same in going to spend holidays here with his wife. They went to Cebu. Hope they are OK. The best thing I have seen in all this is the how the people here help each other. The local churches and people are putting together for relief efforts, sending water etc, to Surigao City, Siargao, and other hard hit areas north of us. Hope you are all well and safe. God Bless. Merry Christmas. Reboot.
  4. Novavax has a new vaccine on the verge of getting emergency approval. While originally developed before Delta, perhaps it will prove useful. It is a subunit vaccine, not at all like the J&J or the mRNA vaccines.
  5. There is a good deal of evidence it can help. I know only one thing: it does a decent job of deworming my chickens.
  6. Covid-19 is here to stay for the foreseeable future. Mutations are making it endemic.
  7. I use Pot Perm in my water system in FL. We are on a well. Removes iron deposits.
  8. We all got it last week. Daughter tested positive. I was a bit under the weather on Monday. Basically everyone in a household of 6 exposed. Wife had a headache. Teenage son, toddler, and baby are like nothing happened. We're all quarantined. *yawn* Talk about a bullshit crisis to herd people like cattle.
  9. Booster shots. huh? I guess the original shots were super good weren't they?
  10. Boomer speak: "I am taking a defensive position for just in case I live long enough to survive what our policies will do to every generation that came after us." COVID-19 wasn't engineered well enough.
  11. You lucky bastards. All Uncle Sam sends me are tax bills, not stimulus checks.
  12. More than 90 million people have received at least one dose in the US, so some immunity there. Add to that the 31 million cases to date, and the likelihood that for each officially counted case there are two others that never were detected, and we are talking over 180 million people with at least some immunity right now. That's over half the US population. Herd immunity is expected to hit at somewhere between 60 and 80 percent of the population, so we should be getting there very soon at the current rate of over 2 million shots per day and roughly 60,000 official cases per day. Once that occurs maybe the US will start sending more doses overseas, including the RoP. The UK has also done very well with its vaccination program.
  13. Other than the initial 2 week lockdown last year, my home state of Florida has had no statewide lockdowns, mask requirements, etc. The children went back to school like normal at the end of last summer, with the provision they wear masks. Our COVID-19 numbers hover around the national average, and are better than many states that took drastic restrictions to slow down the spread. Florida, by the way, is booming. Our unemployment level is below 5% and we have been flooded by COVID refugees fleeing other states.
