Re: Reporting from Across the Pacific

Canada has closed the border to the U.S. and will likely remain that way for awhile, they are a lot worse off than we are at the moment. Numbers aside Thailand which loves China will allow them back first. Personally I think traveling by air will be very expensive and a lot of trouble from now on a...

Re: Reporting from Across the Pacific

Always enjoy reading your updates parrot. You make some very good points, both pro and con, regarding the decision making process in selecting residence location. We have a small home in Missouri and intended to be there currently, but of course, circumstances have prohibited that. Right now we are ...

I suspect lawsuits will be popping up shortly. Negligence and misconduct amongst other claims. A lot of people are suffering due to the actions of others.

Re: Miscellaneous COVID-19/Corona Virus Discussion, Questions, etc.

Air Quality has absolutely nothing to do with the virus, its spread, social distancing, masks etc Nothing I'd think that healthy lungs would be helpful in resisting the virus attack.
