  1. Of course, where else would they administer the injection.
  2. I'm not really concerned. My wife was a little sick after the second injection. I signed up yesterday. They said it could be six weeks until they get to me. I'm not in any of the early groups. My wife got the vaccine in the phase 1A since she is a healthcare worker.
  3. I suggest placing a notice on the deceased members' profile page. Something like this below (wordsmithing suggestions welcome): In Memory of (forum name here) We regret to inform the Klipsch Forums community that this member has crossed over to the highest fidelity realm. This profile will remain up as a tribute to (forum name here).
  4. We do have cell service, and most lakes around here do. That has become almost a necessity these days, but at least we can get away from a computer screen and cable news for a while.
  5. I am ready for Spring, and I plan to spend as much time as possible on my boat. Although we have WIFI at the marina, I do not take a computer to the marina, and there is no cable TV. It is just like it was 25 years ago, so it is kind of a respite from the modern world.

    Yes it is. My wife gets the credit because she has kept us on TXU instead of switching to one of the "cut-rate" providers linked to the wholesale price of natural gas.

    I haven't seen an electric bill yet, but I received this somewhat reassuring email notice from my electricity provider: As Texas recovers from the recent winter weather emergency, here’s how you can count on us. Insulating your Rate You may have heard about sky-high variable rates in the news, but rest assured that as a TXU Energy customer, you won’t see any near-term impact to your rate due to this winter weather event. Whether you’re on a fixed or variable pricing plan, our customers are always insulated from extreme variable wholesale power price swings like the recent ones.
  8. From howstuffworks.com: "Botulism, caused by the bacteria clostridium botulinum, occurs when a dent or damage to a can creates even a pinhole-size opening." Stick to your guns on the no dented cans policy.

    Good to hear your water is safe to drink. To my astonishment, my pool equipment survived. My neighbors on both sides were not so fortunate (photos below). When the power went off and the temp was 2F, I placed a Mr. Heater propane camping heater under the tarp covering my equipment, and then placed a 60 lb steel plate in front of the heater to absorb an reradiate the heat. When the plate was hot, I reduced the heater to just running the pilot flame. I really didn't think that would be enough considering the duration of the low temp, but I got lucky. Neighbor's equipment:

    Perseverance

    I'm looking forward to see how well the little Ingenuity Mars Helicopter works. I had no idea Mars had enough of an atmosphere for aerodynamic flight.

    Perseverance

    "Perseverance will search for signs of ancient life". I hope it doesn't overlook any present signs of life. It is quite the engineering achievement. It will be interesting to see how long it takes to retrieve the core samples Perseverance will collect. Maybe not even in our lifetime?
