  1. Reminds me of the destruction of the SS Norway/SS France. At least someone was wise enough to remove the tip of the bow and return it to France
  2. If businesses and government agencies can not demand proof of a vaccine or a negative test, how can a cruise ship require if for passage? https://www.tampabay.com/news/florida-politics/2021/04/30/florida-lawmakers-pass-vaccine-passport-ban/
  3. Thanks. There is a Princess tour out of Juneau that goes to Mendenhall glacier and whale watching. Is that too much for one tour?
  4. I would love to book a whale watching shore excursion, but what are may chances of spotting whales the first week of June?
  5. We are booked on a Princess Cruise tour with the actual cruise setting sail on June 1, 2022. I just got an e mail inviting us to book Princess shore excursions. Is this standard practice for a Princess Alaska Cruise? Over 13 months out seems very early.
  6. I have to ask that if you have had the shots, why would it matter? After all, you are protected, correct? Please understand that this question is asked not to start an argument, but to understand the logic. If the shots protect you from the virus, it should not matter whether someone else wears a mask. Those who are not taking the shots do not seem to be worried about catching the virus. Why should those who have taken the shots be worried? Am I wrong somewhere?
  7. The antibody shot is interesting. Do you have a source or link where I could read up on the idea? Given my medical conditions, my doctors are very hesitant to me getting the Covid shots.
  8. I live in SC and have to put a side note in for the state. Our governor has never mandated a statewide mask order because he said our state constitution will not allow him to do so. However, with his encouragement, most counties and local communities enacted their own mandates. A few counties, like the one I live in, did not renew their mask mandate even though the local cities and towns continued their own. Enforcement runs about the same (some towns are more active in enforcement than others) Rural county business decided on their own whether to require a mask. Some did, some did not.
  9. Vietnamese wear face masks because they want to keep their skin pale. They consider pale skin more attractive.
  10. It has been suggested that the reason for the reduction in the number of positive cases is because the previous testing has been too sensitive. The sensitivity has been reduced and that has led to a decline in positive cases. https://www.msn.com/en-us/health/medical/experts-us-covid-19-positivity-rate-high-due-to-too-sensitive-tests/ar-BB18wE8B https://sentinelksmo.org/kdhe-quietly-reduced-cycle-threshold-on-covid-tests/
  11. According to the CDC fact sheet of both sets of shots: "The Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine is an unapproved vaccine that may prevent COVID-19. There is no FDA-approved vaccine to prevent COVID-19." https://www.fda.gov/media/144414/download https://www.modernatx.com/covid19vaccine-eua/eua-fact-sheet-recipients.pdf
  12. The Supreme court gave local communities the right to mandate the smallpox vaccine in 1905. " The U.S. Supreme Court, in an opinion by Justice John Marshall Harlan I, ruled that the state of Massachusetts acted constitutionally within its police powers to pass a law to protect the health and safety of the public. https://mtsu.edu/first-amendment/article/1824/jacobson-v-massachusetts. The only difference I see is that these shots are not approved for covid 19 immunity. From the FDA fact sheet: "There is no U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved vaccine to prevent COVID-19." https:
  13. We stayed 3 nights in the Grand Hotel and loved it! We rode a tandem bike around the island one day and drove (for lack of a better word) a horse and buggy around the second day. When we went 8 years ago jackets were required for men at dinner.
  14. Yes, I am not an expert, I did not play one on TV, and I did not stay at a Holiday Inn Express (If you get the last one you date yourself). I am in learning mode right now. It is hard to sift through the clutter and get to the true facts. I do feel this will eventually move to the courtroom and eventually the Supreme Court. I would not put any bets on how that would turn out. I am reading that the liability insurance of most businesses and organizations (including the church I attend) does not cover pandemics. Yes, they can probably require employees to be vaccinated, but what about ev
