And in Ontario we got extended ymto January 31 from January 26 but we got some promises.

You mentioned you were living in Ontario, so I actually looked at a map. Your province extends south of Detroit. In that same area there are a lot of Asian food restaurants.  The Sun Hong Barbeque and Seafood Restaurant sounds interesting. I’ll take the Sweet and Sour Pork (Hong Kong style) for 14.95 and the Shrimp Fried Rice for 12.95. Can you use American money and a credit card? Then walk across the route 3 bridge into Detroit.

Where authoritarianism worked. In reverse. In one of the poorest socialist country ruled by a paternalist, Daniel Ortega and his wife, one could predict the worst Covid losses. But here's a lesson in pandemic handling for the rich and free nations. The numbers `might` be under-reported by the state and state media, as health workers moan, but assuming even if by 10 times, non-intervention was effective: Not locking down and mask-mandating, nor mandating vaxxing, Nicaragua was a comparatively huge success story, showing up the inept 'experts', nannyists and alarmists elsewhere. The cost in casualties was low while people's lives went on. Chanced upon, none of this is getting media attention except a single Telegraph article.

The Reuters graphs and further down, the country's Lock down policy for schools, work places, stay at homes, border controls - tells the story of minimal interference and loss.

I would love nothing more than to meet you there and buy you some lunch and/or dinner.

Interesting tidbit of information for you that the southernost point of Ontario is south of the northernmost point of 20+ States including California! 

If I got into Detroit, I aint never going back to Ontario whilst heading to a beautiful red state like Florida or Texas

Chicken with black bean sauce for me though.

I’ve seen a documentary on life in rural Canada, do you live near Letterkenny?

Never even heard of that place! 

I live in a small town named Toronto, home of the Toronto Maple Leafs who have not won since 1967!

Sure as a silly and inane break from the current shit show (s).

Perhaps you could review it , and report back if it is at all a window into Canuck culture and humor for Amerikans , I’m thinking there is a little ‘hick’ in everybody ,both sides of the border .

:)

caution only intended as silly and mostly inane

Alas, the tram doesn't go that far north, Marc. We were just thinking about our last trip to Florida. We considered driving and visiting relatives and sightseeing along the way, but we ended up flying. 

It's only thirty here but the snow from last night is melting. I took an old broom and brushed the snow off our car and truck. 

I saw the take home for the Mega-millions Lottery, after taxes, is 150 million bucks but I don't know how much Canadians would take home. The next drawing is Tuesday night. Two bucks a ticket. Fun. But I hate it when I don't even get one number right.

$150 million, I would keep it there.

From Wikipedia. The Canadian Shield (French: Bouclier canadien [buklje kanadjɛ̃]), also called the Laurentian Plateau, is a large area of exposed Precambrian igneous and high-grade metamorphic rocks (geologic shield) that forms the ancient geologic core of the North American continent (the North American Craton or Laurentia). Glaciation has left the area with only a thin layer of soil, through which the composition of igneous rock resulting from long volcanic history is frequently visible. end quote

When the next glaciation occurs, Canadians are very welcome here, though it may be more likely a climatic heat event will occur first, so the U.S. may need to buy some grain from Canada. Deal?

Moderna Stock Crash Intensifies: Losses Top $130 Billion

 

"Battered by a steep broad-market selloff this week, Moderna shares fell for a sixth straight day Friday as experts questioned whether Covid-19 vaccine sales alone will help justify the firm’s meteoric valuation, intensifying a crash that’s wiped out more than 60% of the value in one of last year’s top stocks and turned it into this year’s worst performer.

"Moderna stock fell 4.4% Friday to an eight-month low of $160, pushing shares down more than 20% over the past week amid growing research suggesting Moderna’s Covid-19 booster, while very effective against previous strains, has been less effective against the rapidly spreading omicron variant."

Moderna was last year’s third-best-performing stock in the S&P—it’s now this year’s worst.

TG,

When I see that, the following comes into my head.

Follow the money...

Look at the world. See what is happening in the world. Follow the money.

The world is opening up on mandates, passports, vaxes, etc. Now we find one of the principals is losing money.

Is that why all this is happening in the world?

Nope. It's the contrary. Nobody loses money like that from one day to the next. The people backstage have known about this problem for some time. And those among them who could have helped did not. They all know something the general public does not.

For Moderna, what is happening is not good. For humans in general, it is wonderful. I look forward to seeing the whole goddam thing crash around the predator state seeing what they did to the world.

Michael

Can we not just come now if we want?

I will bring grain.
