My preferred masks are washable cotton ones - made by a local person.

I find the standard disposable blue ones really uncomfortable slapforehead

I do too, Mad. They are constantly getting in my eyes and I do like family and am always adjusting it. I much prefer my washable cotton ones made by a local group of women who formed a company called Mother Earth Pillows.

I think anyone who wears a mask is just plain smart, kind and courteous because it's not always easy or feasible to do safe distancing. Wearing a mask, no matter what kind, as long as it covers nose and mouth, is better than not doing anything at all.

Hagatha, your need to spout off reminded me of a friend of mine who did something similar. She went to college when she was in her 50s, and daytime classes were frustrating because of yacking noise from the younger students, even and especially when the professor was talking. One day, she had enough. She stood up and told all the students to shut up because she had paid for her class and wanted to hear what the prof was saying. She did this in several of her classes. When she graduated, she receive a 'humanitarian' award from those professors because she was able to do what they couldn't. Good for you to speaking your mind!

I love that story, butterflybabe! And I totally agree, wearing a mask even if you don't have to is a reflection that you are concerned about others, not just yourself.

Finally some beautiful days for us to get out and about before the winter rain sets in.

Case numbers are still going back up. Manitoba has instituted mandatory mask-wearing in indoor public spaces. I'm hoping BC does the same. I know people are really tired of all of this (I am) but we all still need to be really careful and stay safe.

On a happier note, our Southern Resident Orca, which are endangered, have produced two apparently healthy babies this summer. We also have a couple of baby humpbacks this year.

I read that about your Southern Resident Orca population! A brief glimmer of hope in an otherwise dreadful year.

You can't imagine how adorable a baby Orca is until you see one up close -- and being baby mammals, they're curious and naughty and do come right up to you. They have little round faces. Now, an infant Humpback is the size of a small bus, but even so, they're tiny in comparison to an adult., and they're equally cute behaviour-wise.

Things like this make life bearable.

The Transient Orca family pods with babies will travel for a while, and then they stop for an hour or two to let the baby play while the adults hunt. We've seen this a few times. They splash around and try to breach. We've seen one blow bubbles just under the surface. Usually one of the adults will come over to the boat from time to time to remind us that they're watching.

Humpback mothers are a little more laissez-faire, allowing their babies to swim freely, but if the young one swims right up to the boat, which they do since we're smaller than they are, the mother will come over and shoo the little one away.

It keeps us sane during these awful times.

The whale-watching tours have been able to run this summer, as most of the tour boats are Zodiacs open to the air. These days they're headed north to look for grizzlies in the Mainland river mouths. We have a radio so we follow them sometimes, since they all talk to each other and there's always someone who knows where the whales and bears are.

If any of you ever have the chance, it truly is the thrill of a lifetime to see these beings up close.

Add that to my bucket list which is getting longer, and delayed by the current shenanigans.

Just saw his take off on the Marine helicopter for Walter Reed Hospital. I hope they can do more for him than for 95% of those who come down with Covid-19.

Yep. This virus does not discriminate. Anyone can get it, and that's why we all have to take every precaution we can., to protect ourselves and others.

Stay safe, everyone.

Offensive tackle Isaiah Wilson, Tennessee’s first-round pick out of Georgia, has been on the reserve/COVID-19 list since Sept. 6.


The NFL first postponed, then rescheduled the Titans’ game set for Sunday against Pittsburgh to Oct. 25 during Tennessee’s bye. The league also moved Baltimore’s bye to Week 7, so the Ravens now can play Pittsburgh on Nov. 1.

Officials from the NFL and its players’ union met with the Titans on Friday reviewing the situation., Kansas City Chiefs practice squad quarterback Jordan Ta'amu has tested positive for COVID-19 and is being placed on the reserve/COVID list, The news comes shortly after it was learned that Patriots QB Cam Newton also tested positive for the COVID-19 virus .Chiefs and Patriots to be postponed for either Monday or Tuesday.

Maybe playing contact sports in the middle of a pandemic isn't such a good idea after all?

Yes, it kind of does.

Good thing I have a stack of new games to play for the upcoming winter months in semi-isolation.

embrace with Patriots cornerback Stephon Gilmore and The image of Mahomes and Gilmore together was widely shared Wednesday morning after news broke that Gilmore tested positive for COVID-19. The news of Gilmore's positive test and the Titans' facility continuing to remain closed following two additional Titans players testing positive for COVID-19 was a topic around NFL news conferences Wednesday . NFL Network's Tom Pelissero, and Mahomes told reporters he has taken extra precautions since this weekend including sleeping in a separate bedroom from his pregnant fiance. Meanwhile, a player for the Las Vegas Raiders has also tested positive. Goodell signed off on this plan even though we all know that the virus can incubate for days and a negative test one day could easily become a positive test the next. Even as this very nightmare scenario was playing out for all to see at the White House, Goodell wasn’t concerned.For the first time after years of scandal and public relations disasters, Goodell is messing with the league’s money. The NFL doesn’t need fans for mega-profits. Its cash flows come from its multibillion-dollar TV deals. If there are no games, that means no broadcasting, and that means no dough. That scenario for the NFL bosses might very well be a bridge too far. what do you think.

I am so sick of hearing about COVID.
If you have any other health problem you can just go to hell.
I needed a tuberculosis test and wasn't able to get one because all they care about is damned COVID.

Because starving to death, and watching your family starve, is so much more pleasant than dying of a respiratory infection.
