    Having read about all of the “crud” that’s been going around I was just wondering, could this be the latest variant, soon to displace Omicron? :wink:

    Reading through this thread I do feel fortunate not to have had any illness during 2021…hope I can safely say that with just over a week to go until we flip the page over to 2022.

    Both my wife and I did suffer from who-knows-what in October of 2019. This started in embarrassing fashion when boarding an airplane in the Cayman Islands, as we were about to head home. Tried to muffle it the best I could but my coughing fit lasted a good half hour which made me think they were going to kick me off the plane! But thankfully by the time we reached Fort Lauderdale the worst of my coughing went away, and I quickly started to feel pretty normal. Unfortunately, my wife caught whatever I had soon after we got back home, but her’s was much worse with all the usual flu symptoms. This caused her to be bed-ridden for several days as she felt awful.

    Again, this was October 2019 which was several months before the CoVid-19 outbreak here in the U.S. But to this day I wonder if we may have caught something similar, or possibly Co-Vid itself, while in Cayman.

    It wasn’t Covid. My mom thinks the same thing about her illness around the same time. If you had Covid in Cayman in October and my mom had Covid in MN in Oct, they wouldn’t have only measured a cluster in Wuhan spreading out from there. It would have been all over the US instead of an original cluster in WA state.

    …”they wouldn’t have only measured a cluster in Wuhan spreading out from there…”

    I don’t think we know that for certain, and in fact the Chinese have never admitted that the virus originated from the lab in Wuhan.

    “…It would have been all over the US instead of an original cluster in WA state.”

    While the virus in the U.S. may have originated in WA state, it did spread very quickly across the rest of the country, killing thousands.

    We’ve had the crud. I didn’t know so much snot could come out of a persons head! Thankfully I was fully recovered within a week. The hubby unfortunately has had a much rougher go of it than I with more severe symptoms and longer duration. Going to take yet another test to make sure we can go visit my family for the holiday, especially since my sister in law has just started chemotherapy for breast cancer.

    I hope this is the last Christmas we have to put up with this shit….

    Christmas Story marathon.

    Love the tradition. IIRC, my record is about 18 hours watched, of the 24 hours they do it. Average is about 12-13 hours.

    It’s completely idiotic and simplistic, but it’s tradition, gol darnit. :)

    I got the DVD as a gift many years ago. Still sealed, due to the marathon every year. :)

    Some of you know the crazy blond St Cloud female fan…we have a tradition of MST3King the first showing of the marathon on the Tweeter. It’s weird, because we adapt our comments to the times. No hold barred, topics that cannot be discussed on here, etc. :) Again, it’s idiotic, but it’s fun.

    We all have our things. Like some people consider Die Hard a Christmas movie, instead of a movie that happens during Christmas. I shall now leave that firestarter and run like hell from this thread. ;)

    Mystery Science Theater 3000. Basically, a group of people run commentary, snarky, along with the movie. Poke holes in the plot, make fun of the entire movie. IIRC, MST3K is Minneapolis based.

    MST3K, which funny, I don’t really like that show, does that with the uber-bad movies. Not even B-Movies. Worse. Crazy StC fan and I have a love of “A Christmas Story” and decided to do it one year. Then figured, “let’s make this OUR tradition.” *shrug*

    It wasn’t 18 hours straight, it was 18 out of the 24 hours they showed it. :wink: During that stretch, it was 12 hours straight, though.

    Pretty much turn the tv on to ‘Christmas Story’ and let it run all day. Similar to the ‘Yule Log’… lol!!!

    Merry Christmas to you as well!

    I have 4 kids ranging in age from 15 years to 22 months so we still get to experience all levels of Christmas. This year was extra special as I got 2 naps in!

    In the small town I live near, population around 150, a couple opened a local bar and grill in the old bank building that is about 100 years old. Its nice to have a place just 2 miles away to go to for a beer and a burger. We make sure we support them as best we can so they can stay in business. In a time when places are closing, nice to see things like this opening up in the middle of no where.

    Yes. Kor’s Korner Pub. When I was young the Main Street was filled with businesses and now the town has an elevator, a new bar, a hair place and 4 churches.

    I love it after the holidays are over. No more short/messed up weeks with holidays in them. No real interruption because of a holiday until May. Work gets back to normal 7:00 – 5:30 five days a week.

    I was sitting here thinking that I really like my holidays even if the rest of the holiday week is crazy due to one less work day.

    I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the short work weeks! Ten to twelve hour days five days at a time wears on you.

    That’s all I’ve worked for the last 20 years at three different jobs. The 10 hours of overtime makes it bearable.

    My last gigs were as a “Scaffoldologist” @ MNGS.

    AKA Monte Nuke.

    6 days a week, 12 hrs a day during the outage. Have enough pull to work the night shift you work 12 but get paid for 13. $$$$ KACHING! $$$$

    I loved it. You can’t do it for much more than 2 months, but that is a long outage so you didn’t have to.

    2 motorcycles & a tritoon. In my last 4 outages.

    Brutal humiliating punishments for being last in your fantasy league. :lol:

    Playing a recorder in public until you get $25! That’s funny.

    Reffed 4 hockey games this morning/afternoon. My son played tonight and got home about 9pm. Didn’t think much about more hockey but found a replay of the Gopher game on TV and tuning in to it with a drink. 👍🏻

    Richard, the manager and guy in the ads, is a really good friend of ours. We’ve known him about 10 years, he’s just like he appears, very funny, very kind. This is one of my favorites too Cowgirl. Poor Bear, I wonder how many bruises he ended up with? Even IN the costume.

    This video just reminded me of the constant beat downs Goldy would give the Subway sandwich during the intermissions in the mid-90s. I don’t know why it did but I got a chuckle from that memory too

    And that reminds me of Goldy routinely trucking children during halftime games with other mascots.

    In other words, Goldy rules.

    There’s a video out there if the whole game between the mascots and kids one of the years. Ben Leber, former linebacker, was in a wedge cheese costume. He has talked about it on the radio. They were told to hit the kids and knock them around. He thought they were nuts. When he saw all the kids laughing and loving getting destroyed, he just went for it.

    Appointments only at the airport is great! Snagged a cancel spot and the line was the perfect length to save up a tube full of spit. My overnight test kit I ordered Wednesday hasn’t even shipped yet and i don’t want to wait two weeks for that process. But hey at least I’ll have a backup!

    If anyone needs an immediate test, just keep refreshing the airport. Times show up every few minutes, you just have to get your name and email in super fast before everyone else.

    Although appts only is through tomorrow at this time.

    What an epic series. I was lucky enough to be at all three home games at Met Center. Game 7 was about as stressful as it gets. God bless Al MacAdam!!! I remember my Mom saying “Well, he’s from Charlottetown. What did you expect?”. (Mom’s home town). :lol:

    Those were the days. :club: North Stars had some firepower. Glen behind the bench. Awesome uniforms. Dino showed up the next season.

    In 2021 my wife and I finally got to experience Duluth and we both fell in love with the area. We made a couple trips up and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves both times. Canal Park and Lake Superior are wonderful settings that give great views. Watching the sun rise over Lake Superior was a highlight during our trips. The other thing I have found myself fascinated by is the ships going in and out of the harbor and watching the Aerial Bridge go up and down. Throughout the year I have watched the Duluth Harbor cams on You Tube and have enjoyed watching it very much. I bring this up since today Lake Superior shuts down for the season as the Soo Locks close for annual maintenance.

    I look forward to more trips to the Duluth area this year as we have two planned already. One we are going to explore Duluth a little more and then the other we are going further up the North Shore. We have made it as far as Silver Bay and plan on making it to Grand Marais this fall.

    I am enjoying watching as the last few ships are on Lake Superior today as they either head to the other Great Lakes or into Duluth for winter layup. It has truly been a simple pleasure this past year.

    It took that long?! North Shore is the best part of MN and it’s not close. It is our crown jewel.

    My wife’s relatives from Florida who had never been to MN were here visiting. They asked me what the one thing is I would recommend that they see. I said Duluth and the North Shore. They kicked it around and decided to go see the Mall of America. :ddown:

    We’re trying to convince my mother and father-in-law to go to the North Shore this summer. They bought a toy hauler late last summer and plan on taking some trips this year. I told them they should camp up there and spend a week riding around there on their Harley.

    Good. The last thing we need is people from Florida discovering the beauty of the north shore and wanting to move here.
