  1. Thanks cat 🙂. I’ve had quite the haul several times from these plants. DH has had fresh chilies every day for two months. He’s a happy camper 🙂
  2. I got the 503 a few times the other day. I closed the browser and re-opened and it worked ok. Just in case it is of help 🤞
  3. Thanks for the Daily, Rich and our morning smile 🙂 Clean up the Earth day should be every day. I assume the national Nut Day is for the nuts we eat 😉 Love the quote by Emerson. Salmon sounds great. I’ll pop some out of the freezer and have it tomorrow night. Today is bbq as it is supposed to be one of our last warmer days. To celebrate National Colour Day, my burning bushes are showing off. This one has started to lose leaves but still pretty. While this one has just started to turn. Seeing the cold temps coming, I figured I better clean up the chilies for what may be my last haul. @bennybear the ones on the right are for more seeds. I’m not giving up yet and if I can get more great. But, if chilies get frost, they go soft so better safe than sorry 😉 Prayers for everyone on Roy’s Care list & for anyone who needs them and a toast to all of those we are celebrating. Have a great Thursday everyone! Stay safe and don’t forget your masks 😷
  4. Yes, probably, but there are travellers and there are tourists. In certain ports we count ourselves as one of the former and I’ve many a nice chat with locals as has DH. The locals do know the difference 😉. We’ve even fooled some a few of the times. 😄
  5. Thanks for elaborating on the benefits. Much appreciated. I’ve never lost a key card but I am fussy on my jewelry and bracelets - LOL 😉 I would be concerned as being spotted in ports with such a bracelet as a tourist. It’s sort of like wearing a lanyard in port? Time will tell I guess.
  6. Why? What is the benefit? I don’t see one but as usual, I could be missing the boat.
  7. Happy to help. As you can see @ger_77 is doing the same thing. I actually find pics load faster on this cc site than they did on tap a talk. Like Gerry, I deleted the app.
  8. So sad this is happening and all because some people won’t wear masks & don’t play ball. 😞 I am so glad that Ellen got the surgery when she did. I can’t even envision the surreal experience you two have had fighting cancer with covid. All our prayers are with you both ❤️
  9. I use an IPad too and find the CC site (on the internet) now easy to use on my Ipad. You can post pics, etc. So, I’ve stopped using tap a talk or the app. They both weren’t working at one stage so I just migrated to the regular site and with the ease, saw no reason to go back to the apps. Hope this helps.
  10. Thanks for the Daily, Rich and our morning smile 🙂 That’s certainly an interesting collection of days we have, today! Thankfully the only pills I need to check are our vitamins and oregano 😉 Nachos are always fun to celebrate 😄 Love that quote of Elliot’s. How true it is. DH is not a corned beef fan (I love it) so I’ll pass on the meal suggestion. I remember the zombie from my university days. It was one wicked drink. Thanks @cat shepard for the wine description. It does sound intriguing if not pricey. Prayers for all of those on Roy’s Care list & for those who need them and a clink of the glass to all those on his Celebratory list. Have a great Wednesday everyone. Stay safe and don’t forget your masks.😷
  11. Thanks for the Daily, Rich and our morning smile 🙂 Too soon to make fruit cake for me but brandy is a must in it 🙂. Love to see the Chef’s and Waiters celebrated. We miss them. That quote is ever so true. The meal suggestion sound wonderfully tempting. I just might make some. A Mai Tai sounds wonderful. I’ll wait to enjoy one on board 😉 Hopefully there will be a different vacation next year than the one we’ve had in 2020. I was pretty worn and weary last night after all the gardening and cleaning. I needed something to help my aching back: Love a Cava but prefer it in white but wine is always good. Prayers for everyone on Roy’s Care list & for all those who need them and a toast to those celebrating. Have a great Tuesday everyone. Stay safe and don’t forget your masks 😷
  12. Just an update. Canada has extended the closure of the border until the end of November. I suspect that will continue until there is confidence that covid is under control south of the border and we are certain it is under control here.
  13. Well, we will agree to disagree as our experience here in the Northern Tundra is different than south of the border. Our politicians are trying to follow science. Contact and trace is big in the Atlantic Bubble. If there is an outbreak then that zone goes back to code orange (which is not a lockdown) but a limit on the number of people in your bubble.and certain industries have a capacity limit, of course. But all our restaurants, etc have a capacity limit right now. We have been fortunate in our zone. I go to my dentist, my doctor and my hair stylist with a mask, answer a few covid questions and all is good. I have my little bubble of 8 households/people and while I miss my family and friends that are not in the Atlantic Bubble, we are doing quite well here being careful. Unlike news reports I have seen there is no objection to a mask here. Masks are mandatory in a store or any public place (as it should be). Those who had a serious outbreak (keep in mind our definition of a serious outbreak is a lot different than south of the border - we have had a total of 3 deaths so far in our province) must wear masks outdoors as well. That outbreak and it’s source has been traced with all contacts which is why the zones are in code orange and not lockdown. 😉 I, for one listen to the scientists and I am glad our governments are, especially, our Premier. I was never a fan of the man (I’m not of most politicians) but he has done a spectacular job on covid working with all parties in a non partisan way and listening to the scientists. And we’ll wear our mask 😷 To try to keep our friends, neighbours and everyone in our community safe. 🙂
  14. Misleading perhaps but not dishonest. The scientists told what they knew at the time. They thought it was similar to the cold and that symptomatic people spread it. Since that early time in Feb & Mar they have discovered that asymptomatic people spread it and therefore recommended masks. That’s what science is about - learning and evolving. Many scientists have said this and Fauci said he was wrong on 60 minutes during an interview the other night. No one is perfect. They can only go by what they know and what they find out.
