Help us, please help us. We are cold and hungry.

COVID, memories of the start 

@Canageek Yep - about the same time I became aware last year. I flew to Florida for a combined work/family visit trip the 3rd week of Feb last year. I remember briefly wondering if I should be concerned but there was no reported COVID in VA or FL so we went. About two weeks after we got back all hell broke loose in the States. I was still hoping our April trip to Puerto Rico would be possible..obviously, that didn't happen!

I was yesterday years old when I learned how to play Gin Rummy.

@phooky I would guess the majority of Metafilter is old enough to remember rotary phones. I certainly do.


@brownpau Virginia had 10,000 new cases yesterday. My wife is eligible as of today to get vaccinated - our doctor said they hope to have their vaccination plan ready to go by end of the week. It's going to be a while for me though.


@brownpau I read it was a bunch of big-time business donors threatening to cut off donations for GA if he didn't concede.

Haven't posted anything here since March. What did I miss?
