  1. 4 cruises since mid-2019, to Europe, SE Asia, and South America. Before that binge, the last cruise we took was in 1993 (Caribbean). Lots and lots of land trips over the last 40 years, to all corners of the globe. We dipped our toes into the cruising market last year and decided we liked the experience!
  2. This story is leading in the New York Times right now. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/06/23/world/europe/coronavirus-EU-American-travel-ban.html?action=click&module=Top Stories&pgtype=Homepage
  3. For another view... https://www.politico.com/news/2020/06/22/florida-politicians-coronavirus-surge-333611
  4. I hope you didn't get the information from a left-wing Jesuit.
  5. Florida's governor conceded today (finally) that the recent spike in COVID cases -- more than 4,000 new diagnoses on Friday alone -- can't be explained just by increased testing. https://www.politico.com/states/florida/story/2020/06/20/desantis-pivots-on-covid-19-surge-says-testing-doesnt-account-for-spike-1293901
  6. Not according to my deity. She takes full responsibility for what's happened to cruise lines.
  7. Would the Notorious R.B.G. sail on HAL? At 87, she certainly fits the age demographic.
  8. My connections with the Almighty tell me She doesn't blame the media for the COVID pandemic.
  9. Some people in Alabama believe in masks. Good for them. https://www.alabamanews.net/2020/06/17/montgomery-mayor-steven-reed-issues-executive-order-requiring-face-masks-to-be-worn-in-public/
  10. Cruise ship problems are God's will. Blame Her.
  11. The former head of the FDA, Dr. Scott Gottlieb, says that COVID case numbers in Florida, Texas, and Arizona "are on the cusp of getting out of control." The record-high numbers in Florida and the other states are caused not only by an increase in testing, but by the increasing percentage of tests coming back positive. Hospital admissions and ICU admissions are both lagging indicators. Wait a couple of weeks and these indicators will increase, too. https://thehill.com/policy/healthcare/503588-arizona-texas-florida-again-report-record-high-covid-19-cases
  12. Well, that didn't last long. "Passion Park" is no more. Frisky Canadians will have to find some other way to enjoy the company of frisky Americans. https://news.gov.bc.ca/releases/2020ENV0032-001092 https://www.politico.com/news/2020/06/18/british-columbia-closes-cross-border-peace-arch-park-canada-us-328959
  13. The Lancet is a UK journal and uses the metric system. The article in question concluded that a distance of 1 meter (slightly over 3 feet) reduces the risk of catching the virus. A distance of 2 meters (approx. 6 1/2 feet) reduces the risk even more.
