Re: Outage and upgrade

Re: New coronavirus in/from China

A bit of a bump in the road. Late this afternoon( in New York) Pfizer announced they had a problem with raw materials not being up to standard and cut their estimated 2021 deliveries of their vaccine by half.At least they didn't try to palm off some doggy product on some third world country. https:/...

Re: New coronavirus in/from China

we’ve obviously got the best medical regulators." :?: Would not having the best scientists that are being regulated be the top priority? At any rate time is of the essence. Before sufficient people are vaccinated to slow the spread in late winter it is estimated that daily deaths in the US wil...

Re: New coronavirus in/from China

My sister-in-law has had it and it kept her quite ill for over a month but has now recovered. Presently a step -Aunt on my wife's side who is Italian and 80 plus years old has it and is very ill. Both of these reside in Massachusetts.

Re: Outage and upgrade

Well I finally got in after multiple attempts and three Emails. I find it very annoying to be chastised for my tone when answering a direction to email an administrator if I have a problem. You were expecting sweetness and light or merely expect groveling to your superiority as a form of pay?

....................Such fantasizes will not happen. Those so delusional that they would take up arms are a tiny minority. The 2020 election is the next battle ground. Let's just hope so.

He has to either have a legal case which is strong enough that the Supreme Court, much of which, he put in place can bend the law enough to find for him. And that assumes that his place(wo)men would want to bend the law to Trump's ends. They may be conservative but they must know of Trump's mental ...

In 2024 Trump will be 78. Out of 72 million Republican voters they surely can find a younger and much better choice to run in 2024.

Considering that there are thousands of tanks in farm country storing cattle semen in liquid nitrogen at -313F I think they are overstating the difficulty.

I see no reason to not have the EV for what it can do and reserve the 4x4 diesel for what only it can do. Your total fossil fuel consumption will be way down lower then the average. The downside is the fixed costs of insurance, tax, routine services... not to mention space on the drive. My insuranc...

You've just had it! Jeff Bezos' shares are plummeting in value so his wealth is being redistributed. Hopefully to my pension fund!!!!
