  1. What's new in this club

  3. I “went paperless” this year by putting all my assignments onto Google Classroom, and I got a lot of flak for it- until Covid hit.
  4. The lack of "calendar" to have to play to has been particularly liberating. With Spring Break over and school back in session, there's still the job stress to a degree, but the lack of meetings, especially all those dang spontaneous ones, and the lack of having to be at this practice or that recital or this team picture or that parent meeting ... has allowed for more flexibility and less stress.
  5. I have been a member of this forum since 2005 but had never posted on the OOB board until 2017. I went from + 232 to - 425 within a few months after I started teasing the liberals about their fake news and challenging the mainstream media narrative on the Russia hoax and Mueller Dossier. A dramatic swing of 657 votes from just a few members had no affect on my comments. Grown ass men who behave in such a manner are childish.
  6. “Few places in this world are more dangerous than home. Fear not, therefore, to try the mountain passes. They will kill care, save you from deadly apathy, set you free, and call forth every faculty into vigorous, enthusiastic action.” - John Muir Indiana State Parks, Forests, and National Forest areas are still open. Go out and explore.
  7. Wonder what happens when I hit zero points? Should only take a few days now with Gonzo joining the ranks of serial down voter.
  8. I watched a couple of interesting movies on Amazon Prime last night. "Blow the Man Down" and "2047 Virtual Revolution". They weren't "great" movies, but they held my interest and my wife was surprised that I remained awake through both of them. A rare thing indeed.
  9. This one is based on what I thought was THE funniest moment in the whole show. It started out as a campaign commercial, and Joe’s lack of control quickly takes over with the quote in the picture.
  10. Ok, not the best title for a topic. But this popped up on my timeline. We made national news. And by we, I mean Fort Wayne. Our neighborhood has been doing this for a few days now. https://www.cnn.com/2020/03/28/us/fort-wayne-wave-neighbors-coronavirus-wellness-trnd/index.html I also included a link about taking care of our mental health. I am as guilty as anyone here in that there is an unquestionable degradation in tone not only in this forum, but on the high school one as well. I hope and pray that none of us here are negatively impacted by the awful symptoms of this virus, or even worse, having someone we love or care about pass away as a result of having it. https://bakersfieldnow.com/news/local/health-experts-weigh-in-on-mental-health-during-the-corona-virus-outbreak My 5 siblings and I, along with in laws, have a group text going and have been able to stay “close” while keeping our distance. Puzzles are one of the things I do as well. From early childhood, it was a hobby that our dad instilled in us all. I have decided also to take a step back from posting, or at least responding. I know a couple of others have told me they have done the same thing. I will continue to post positive, or funny stuff though, like the first story I posted.....cool things people are doing in the face of uncertainty. We have a whole topic now in the what to watch now, that has evolved into what we are watching while stuck at home. It may help. While not forcing anything, I would like to see the tone change. The name calling bugs me, and yep, I own my part in that. My guess is that as this isolation progresses, tempers will get shorter and shorter. Plenty of studies connect the decline in mental health and similar issues to the increased time spent on our electronic devices. I work hard to find common ground with everyone here. We may have topics we vehemently disagree on, but there is not a person here that I look at and say, there is nothing I agree with coming from their posts. Yep, there is plenty I disagree with on here. So, as one of my least favorite commentators, Bill O’Reilly used to say, take care of yourselves and each other. Stay safe, stay connected, especially with family and friends, and stay positive......please. ✌️
  11. https://www.law360.com/tax-authority/federal/articles/1257333/immigrants-cut-out-of-senate-s-covid-19-stimulus-package FTA: Thousands of tax-paying immigrants won’t be eligible for stimulus checks under the $2.2 trillion coronavirus relief package that sailed through the Senate, which excludes “nonresident aliens” and those without Social Security numbers. The Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act specifically mandates that people considered “nonresident aliens” won’t be eligible for the $1,200 per adult and $500 per child benefit that Congress is hoping to slip into people’s bank accounts sometime this spring. It requires check receivers to have filed their 2018 or 2019 taxes with a “valid identification number,” which the bill specifically defines as a Social Security number, although other taxpayer identification numbers exist. It’s a move that cuts of thousands of immigrants off from accessing the relief caused by massive layoffs across the country as business is rolled back and people are asked to remain at home to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus. The United States leads the world in number of diagnosed COVID-19 cases as of Thursday afternoon, surpassing much larger China and heavily afflicted Italy. The National Immigration Law Center called the decision to pass a bill that cut off so many in the country from financial aid during a public health crisis as “disgraceful,” noting that many immigrants will end up playing “an essential role in our recovery as a nation.” “Immigrant workers and families who are paying taxes have been cut out from receiving a single dollar,” NILC Executive Director Marielena Hincapié said in a statement. “ Since no other relief package appears imminent, the stakes are high for millions of low-wage workers and immigrants, who also need economic support and access to health care.”
