  1. My fundamental principal is their lawyers are bigger than mine and they won't let me modify the contract for a single passenger so as always buyer beware of the risks and either self insure or have some form of insurance (cc, specific policy etc) A-
  2. The travel credit ends Through June 30, 2021, gas station and grocery store purchases will also count towards earning your $300 Annual travel credit The 3x points at grocery ends You can now earn 3x total points on grocery store purchases on up to $1,000 total spend per calendar month Nov 1, 2020 - April 30, 2021,* including eligible pickup and deliver services.

  3. My Doctors office (9 doctor group) had 800 doses that they used for over 65 (they have 2500+ over 65 patients) I called and got on the wait list as our county the lines are 2-5 hours. I was called last night and they scheduled first dose this Saturday and second dose in 30 days. I am looking forward to getting "stuck" A-
  4. I wonder if CCL is getting rid of them because they don't want to update them per the environmental issues that have to be solved before sailing.
  5. They applied my $300 travel credit to grocery shopping this year so that was nice, almost like free food (except I paid for it)
  6. Sitka has a historic church, the fortress of the bear, the raptor center, the Totem park and museum along with Lots to do including whale watching, its really a working city so other than the church and the museum most is a healthy walk or tour ride. Icy Strait point has very good whale watching along with the zip line, a small town with authentic food and lots to see walking around. Skagway I would recommend a train /bus combo tour that goes at least to carcross and then some time in town depending on how long you are there and what you want to see. Junea
  7. Hi, I am thinking about the ACL "American Constellation" 10 night cruise with 2 days in Glacier Bay. I like the idea of flying into Juneau with no need to go to Canada. Reviews of the ship in ACL forum are less than stellar and I was wondering if anyone has done this itinerary and how was the ship, the bed and the service? Thanks Alan
  8. I use these And these and these After spending 45 minutes looking for a black suitcase in a pile of black suitcases that didn't get put in the right group areas A-
  9. I don't know if they are still doing it but if you gave blood to the Red Cross they did the antibody test for free.
  10. The Pfizer vaccine work was started (BioNTech) on 1-25-2020; the scientist had 10 ideas when he started. "On Jan. 25, a Saturday, after reading a study he said convinced him that the obscure disease in China would soon engulf the globe, Dr. Sahin set to work on his computer, designing the template for 10 possible coronavirus vaccines, one of which would become BNT162b2, the vaccine authorized in the U.K. on Wednesday." https://www.wsj.com/articles/how-a-couples-quest-to-cure-cancer-led-to-the-wests-first-covid-19-vaccine-11606905001?mod=searchresults_pos19&page=1
  11. Well gambling is just that, its taking a risk to get a reward with the odds against you. Winning the lottery pays really well, the odds are huge against winning and winning isn't an absolute pure payout, first the state gets paid. There are things that can be done to minimize odds / reduce risk . A skilled poker player can minimize risk by strategy and win, he can win more against lower skilled players but those are the same people that don't understand odds or chip values in a tournament and make high risk low reward plays and win in spite of themselves, that is
  12. Casinos have the ability to change a whale into a guppy and a guppy into a whale. If you don't give them x dollars and y time in action, you won't get offers. Casinos count play different than most players, every bet is counted, if you play 8 hours and break even you may bet 480 units. You gave the casino 480 chances to take your money at games that have anywhere from 3-4% to much higher house odds. Its not about the occasional winner its about the constant small percentage they win every deal, roll, spin. Slot machines that pay 97% don't pay ba
  13. United Airline started shipping today in readiness of approval "United Airlines Holdings Inc. UAL -0.74% on Friday began operating charter flights to position doses of Pfizer Inc.’s PFE 1.92% Covid-19 vaccine for quick distribution if the shots are approved by regulators, according to people familiar with the matter. The initial flights are one link in a global supply chain being assembled to tackle the logistical challenge of distributing Covid-19 vaccines. Pfizer has been laying the groundwork to move quickly if it gets approval from the Food and Drug Administration and
  14. I don't have much faith in him either but the plan is moving forward and vaccines will be distributed not much longer after FDA approval. It will still be awhile to get them out to everyone. A-
  15. The state is approving about as fast as the FDA, they are working on it simultaneously. Healthcare workers in December, then medically needed and front line workers. It will still take months to secure, distribute and schedule vaccinations on a mass scale. "The state's scientific safety review workgroup has already reviewed the Phase I and II study data on both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines and will be able to review the Phase III data close to when the FDA and CDC receive information to expedite the review and avoid any delay." https://www.sfgate.com/bayarea/article/
