  1. My wife will be upset about this! She’s always referred to me as her boytoy 😂
  2. Unfortunately, these leaders like Gavin Newsom and his ilk aren't serious about containing the spread. They are simply virtue signaling to their political base. There is no prospect of success as long as they continue to do so. 4th of July family barbecue cancelled but protesting in the streets are OK. People will point fingers as long as hypocrites like this think people are to stupid to see what they are doing.
  3. If my memory serves me correctly, those numbers actually look a little better in few counties than what we saw just a little while ago.
  4. It's funny how you always parse my posts to ignore the really relevant data. I compared NY state to Italy, Spain and France all areas with densely populated urban areas heavily dependent mass transit for transportation like NYC. Also, while not directly comparable and why I only added it as an afterthought, the majority of cases in Sweden are in the more densely populated areas of Stockholm and surrounding suburbs. When you want to discuss the totality of my arguments and not the cherry picked sentences you think you can refute we can carry on with this discussion otherwise I'll let you return to rehashing CNN talking points and dreaming of a day free of orange man bad.
  5. We did a three night cruise on Mariner a little over a year ago. She is a great ship and has lots of great stuff for kids. I haven't been on Independence but Freedom class and Voyageur class are very similar in layout.
  6. I'll repeat this for you... How do you excuse 1656 deaths per million when that is 3 times worse than Italy, 3 times worse than Spain, 3 times worse than the UK, four times worse than France and five time the national average of the US. If you can't see that NY's response has been colossal failure I can't even begin to explain it to you. NY is 3 times worse than Sweden and Sweden literally did nothing to stop the spread. If you want to dump on FL go ahead but to hold NY up a model of how to do things just means you're not a serious person to discuss this with.
  7. Here's nice summary of the EU guidance.
  8. Mine is a screen shot from FL dept of healths website. It is the death rate. I acknowledged cases are goin up but the deaths are going down and said the next few weeks will be telling. If you're not going to actually read what I said please don't quote and reply to my posts.
  9. It really really simple... They got caught doing it, brushed the consequences under the rug and stopped doing it! How do you excuse 1656 deaths per million when that is 3 times worse than Italy, 3 times worse than Spain, 3 times worse than the UK, four times worse than France and five time the national average of the US. If you can't see that NY's response has been colossal failure I can't even begin to explain it to you. NY is 3 times worse than Sweden and Sweden literally did nothing to stop the spread.
  10. NY is the worst example what what should be done! They sent actively infected C-virus patients back to the rest homes to recover after they were stabilized in hospital and turned a bad situation into a genocide. A reasonable heuristic would be to see what NY did and literally do the opposite. NY and NJ death rates are the worst in the entire world by a factor of at least two.
  11. In Canada that number is 81%! If Ont. and Que. would have just did what BC did initially and locked down nursing and rest homes completely and early Canada's numbers would be the model of the world. Here in BC we never completely locked down, have never had a mask mandate, only restricted to gatherings to 50 or less and avoided most of the draconian restrictions other North American jurisdictions implemented. We took care of the most vulnerable and by not implementing unreasonable and unscientific restrictions, like fining people for going to parks, we got maximum "buy in" from from everyone and crushed the curve. In BC, we have 2 C-virus patients in ICU and 162 active cases in the whole province and are almost completely wide open. The mistake that was made by jurisdictions like NY, NJ and PA is they simply didn't care for their vulnerable populations and their death rates per million represent that. To keep this post on topic... While Florida's infection numbers have risen their death rate continues to plummet. A couple of weeks will tell us everything we need to know.
  12. Now that they have a proven therapeutic we are one step closer to getting back on board! Yea! 👏 https://edition.cnn.com/2020/07/02/health/hydroxychloroquine-coronavirus-detroit-study/index.html?utm_content=2020-07-03T08%3A10%3A01&utm_source=twCNN&utm_term=link&utm_medium=social
  13. I love @twangster reviews his pictures are amazing and his detail of activities is second to none. However, I also love @John&LaLa and @A&L_Ont as well. They make you feel like you are along for the ride!
