Just devastating... for a second time during this pandemic.
Same here. It's been an all-around crappy 2 days.

First the lay off yesterday and today during a follow up ultra sound after a funky mammogram, I was told I have to go in for a biopsy With pools closed, I can't even go pound out my frustrations in the water. Thinking positive, I'm sure it's nothing. And I have my kidlet home for the next 3 weeks, so I get to bond with her and hopefully get to do some fun stuff. I am just waiting for #3 (comes in threes...) to drop.

Booked my vaccine (i'm 30, no conditions) for Saturday at 4:45 by calling a couple of pharmacies. I am so excited our time is finally up.

Congrats, but I could have sworn you were atleast sixty. Maybe that was due to the old profile pic of Barry Weiss.

Our hospitalizations per active case should continue to drop. As the profile of people entering the hospital is set by 3-4 weeks agos vaccination profile. So Covid should be infecting younger and healthier despite infecting more.

Yikes that's a tough one Puxlut. I hope the biopsy comes back all clear!

I got sucked into a rabbit hole of comments on church restrictions on Facebook today because a friend of mine made a comment. I thought I would take a quick look but it ended up being one of those cases where things are so horrific that you can't look away.

So golf has been affected now?

I thought it was, then it wasn't, now I have received an email from the City of Calgary courses that you can only play with members of your household.

Sooooo I have to play alone? Cool.. I mean I don't mind playing alone at all, but it will basically be impossible to get a time to play..

Let me get this straight. I can have an outdoor gathering with 5 people in my yard, for a bbq, but I can't play golf with 3 people.

This might be the first time I just ignore the rules.

I know I feel that way too.

I just try to remember that most people understand, especially in a thread like this, that a liking a bad message is a show of support and that you've heard what they have to say.

It's not actually liking that they have troubles.

So dumb. I'd like to ignore the rules here, but how can you? You can't just book a foursome and if you're a member somewhere they know that you live with these people (or don't). It's just entirely stupid.

I try to stay out of picking apart the inconsistencies of the rules, of which there are many, but this one does seem odd to me as well.

You can socialize outside with 4 other people, but donít exercise or play a game while doing it?

And actually the wording is this ď All outdoor sports and recreation activities are prohibited, except with members of your household, or your two close contacts if you live alone.Ē which if taken literally means donít do it alone either...only do it with members of your household.

I'm frustrated as well, as playing singles tennis with my friend is far safer than having a 2m beer together outside.

The way I look at it, analyzing the possibilities of outdoor sports would just lead to confusion.

- Basketball is banned
- Golf is ok unless you're sharing a cart. Then no.
- Actually, playing 21 or horse is ok on a basketball court, but no 3 on 3, unless it's full court, not half court
- Singles tennis is allowed
- Doubles tennis is banned. Unless each team is the same household

I accept the blanket banning of everything to do something despite the fact it's pretty annoying.

They've done you all a favour. Golf is dumb and you shouldn't be doing it anyways.

You should be thanking them for saving you.
