  1. Not to be obtuse, but Key West does pretty well without the ships. Yes, they are a tourist town, but there are enough land-based tourists to keep them busy.
  2. And if you actually READ the "article" it starts out by saying Researchers at the University of South Florida conducted a statewide survey of 600 Floridians.... 600 Floridians? Say whaaaaaaa? My statistics peers are rolling on the floor laughing over this insanely miniscule population!
  3. "Forceful kiss"....oh pah-leeze! The photo is from when WWII was declared to be over. Everyone was ecstatic! The statue is in my area and is a treasure and a landmark.....we LOVE it!
  4. I'm not sure how old you are, but back in the 50s polio was a huge issue. Research had been done, but wasn't a priority until Salk came along and pushed it. The vaccine was relatively quick in development and roll-out. Yes, it had some hiccups along the way, but people clamored to get it......so it could possibly be that your own parents, wanting what was best for their children would have gotten it for you without making sure it had been around for sometime.
  5. It is pretty easy to tell from posts on these boards who is from NY/NJ (even though they be transplants) based upon their feelings about masks/Fauci/the CDC/ etc. All we can hope for is that those that come to Florida remember WHY they left where ever and not bring those political beliefs with them.

I'm not suggesting that they foresake all their beliefs, just to remember why they came here and not make Florida a "NY/NJ" south (which, to a degree, it already is). Heavy sign.
  6. Just another beautiful day in Paradise! Our island has 7,000 full time residents. Of those, 5,000 are fully vaccinated! I'd say we are doing pretty darned good!
  7. Today I went to work ,at the largest grocery store in Florida,...no mask required! It was wonderful!!!
  8. I've always thought a steamboat trip along the Mississippi would be fun! I do hope you have a great time!
  9. How many cases of norovirus are too many? How many cases of flu, traffic deaths, cancer, etc are "too many"? life is dangerous. None of us gets out alive!
  10. Questions for the Cleveland Clinic: 1-It takes time for the vaccine to kick in. Q: I've had both my vaccines and am 2+ weeks post second vaccine. Is this reason now moot? 2-The vaccines do not provide 100% protection.(Only 96%) Q: No vaccine is 100, but 96% is pretty darned high! Can I accept that 4% chance? 3-Those who have been vaccinated might be asymptomatic spreaders. Q: Are you sure that those that are asymptomatic truly have Covid? Could the test have been a false positive? And if I've had my vaccine, and I do get Covid, my chances for
