    I can even count the folks I know not getting vaccinated on one hand. And the vast majority are supporters of previous administration 

    Yea. I don’t know where at that comes from. The ones I know are much younger than me.

    Did the CDC director suggest two masks for people who have been vaccinated gathering with other people who have been vaccinated? Personally, I didn't hear her make that statement so just wondering in what scenario(s) was she addressing?

    She was asked a question something to the effect were two masks necessary. She suggested everyone should wear two masks. I assume everyone includes those vaccinated.

    It was never part of the old DL. the DL has always been in the starboard side of the crown. They took the old card and game room in the port side of the crown and created the SL. It looked quite nice to me.

    Anything that has SL on the door is a plus. 😇

    There is more leniency than small gathering outside.......

    When you've been fully vaccinated

    I’m going by the words of our President. He said he was hopeful a small group of family to could meet outdoors on 4th of July for a BBQ.  Did I quote him wrong?


    It was either Thursday or Friday that the Director of the CDC was asked about masks. She recommended/suggested two masks.

    Also the elephant in the room so to speak as far as suing to get cruises restarted it that a Covid State of Emergency exists. The prevoius administration closed the ports due to the emergency and the current one has continued it. The CDC always refers to the State of Emergency and that is why the CDC director says other agencies involved. HHS which means the WH at the end of the day.

    I don’t believe the current administration has any intention of removing the State of Emergency anytime soon.

    I happen to agree with you on this one.  If the residents of Key West do not want us there, then they should have every right to end cruising in their community.  Why would I want to go somewhere where the locals don't don't want me ?  Leave them to their own devices.  I don't think the State has any right to overturn their referendum.

    I’m on the fence. It was by vote of those in Monroe County and Key West. However, what’s to stop them from voting to restrict Key West or Monroe County to residents only?  There are many Conchs who would just assume have the Keys to themselves. 

    I see it here in Daytona. The people (demographics) have changed. The current Mayor and people of Daytona would like nothing better than to rid themselves of many of the events that have been happening here for years. Speed Weeks, Bikeweek, Spring Break, Truck Fest, Jeep Fest, and so on. The locals no longer want them here.


    The businesses here want these events but not the majority of voters.

    I suggest we all try to watch HBO on Tuesday night for their documentary "The Last Cruise", story of the Diamond Princess last spring.

    All that has changed with Operation Warp Speed and the vaccines.

    We can start this subject once all the fleet is back up and running and the cheap cruise deals out of the US are offered.


    Now let's focus on the masks, which seems to be another very difficult subject for people to wear one. As long as you don't need to wear a mask sitting on your deck chair or even when walking outside  I don't see what the whole fuss is all about if it contributes to keep us all safe.

    I think I’ve asked this but went unanswered. How many masks do you and Ace wear?  I should do a poll. 😇

    Thanks Rory.

    It is harmless fun and a great tune too.

    The actors look very much like our Royal family who we love.

    I thought it was great and funny and find it wonderful the UK seems to be more tolerant on social media with the current situation in the Royal Family. So much of what we now post in US is “Fact Checked” and doesn’t meet community standards and deleted.

    I think Sous Vide must be primarily a guy thing. (pardon my sexist language) The male members seem to be enamored with them. Some of us that have to cook meals regularly, really feel no need to plan that far ahead for dinner or cook anything for that long, have the additional prep work or more pots and appliances to clean. Besides purchasing additional specialty appliances and a vacuum sealer and vacuum bags. That's okay.  :classic_biggrin:


     But I am sincerely glad that those of you that have a Sous Vide and associated accessories, enjoy it and get a lot of use out of it. :classic_biggrin: But it is not really our thing. 

    It’s different, that’s for sure. Certain meats are really good SousVide. It’s great for lamb racks, leg, and pork tenderloin.  Ribs were good but I prefer  the 3-2-1 on the BGE low an slow.
