I love hot tubbing in the winter, especially on a clear night. Maine has some of the best night skies.Well one thing I learned . . . hot tubs are in high demand.
We were planning on replacing our broken hot tub as far back as last Fall, but wanted to do some work on the porch first. Didn't realize that there was such a demand for them -- guess folks are spending vacation funds on things like RVs, ATVs . . . and hot tubs.
In any case . . . I should see my new hot tub by January, December if I am lucky.
Between the hurricanes and cannabis growers, industrial dehumidifiers are selling at a "high" rate right now, and of course production is far behind. Imported mechanical parts like compressors, switches etc are some of the things driving shortages. Guess where they are imported from.I went to HD to purchase appliances. I was told it would be January before they could supply them.
How did your daughter's surgery go, bholler?Not covid related but stuck sitting in pediatric ICU with our 11 yr old daughter. She had a Drs appointment yesterday and her resting heart rate was 168. At the hospital it spiked to 208. It turns out she has PJRT. Which is basically faulty wiring in her heart. So they are putting her on beta blockers to control her heart rate untill she can get into children's hospital of pa in Philly on Thursday.
Longer than expected but well. It was supposed to be 3 to 4 hours but ended up being almost 8. Now we just wait to see if anything shows up on the cardiac monitor. She said she never knew it hurt to breath before but it doesn't anymore. She is also much more pink. We never noticed she was so pale beforeHow did your daughter's surgery go, bholler?
Good for her for sticking up for herself at the rest stop...put a mask on, Karen!
The manufacturing chain has broken down due to employee and parts shortages via Covid. It may be a year before they get back up to speed.I went to HD to purchase appliances. I needed 2 ranges, 2 micros, 2 fridges, 1 wall oven, 1 washer, 1 dryer and a dishwasher. I was told it would be January before they could supply them. I went to a local store, and the appliances were in stock. No choice of color unless again I wanted to wait until January.
I keep looking at the wood fired hot tubs. You drain them more often rather than treat the water, but i have more water than I can deal with easily. A faucet off the bottom would water the garden. I have too many other projects to finish first.
Agreed. We'll see. Will be an interesting winter. Tough to find unbiased reporting, but the perspective , argument and data are intriguing.That is interesting. It should be noted that this was with data up through August being compared to full years prior. Or 5 months of data being compared with 12 months for prior years. As noted, it looks like the cases and lockdowns are going up in many of these countries now. If Covid is seasonal, winter is coming. Also, lockdowns and masks are not the first time in history. This was done with the Spanish Flu's multiple waves. It would have been more interesting if South Korea and Taiwan's very low stats were included.
I've read that the Peru situation is due to a very weak medical system compared to Brazil's.
The motivation for this review is obvious. He says it - Why are the pubs closed in Ireland?

So I dug into some numbers to check. Here is what I found for last week. The total number of C-19 deaths for Germany, UK, Canada, Japan, France and Spain were 1,507 for a population of 428 million or 1 in 284,007 people. The total number of reported Covid-19 deaths in the US for that same period were 4,870 for a population of 328 million or 1 in 67,351 people. Why 4x+ higher here?I wouldn't even agree that "facts" are stubborn. Nobody can even agree on facts most of the time.
Simple. Here if you're in a crash and test + for covid in the hospital and then croak from injuries, wallah another covid deathSo I dug into some numbers to check. Here is what I found for last week.
