    That would be "Cocoon: The Return". The elder actors had to rest between each shot. I can related. I woke up this morning and couldn't feel my legs. The source of the problem became immediately apparent.

    26 pounds, 39 inches from tip of nose to end of tail. Vets say he's not fat, just fucking big. I was shocked to hear that.

    Got the Shot. I'm semi-immune now. Actually went out in public today and had someone else cook!

    A report today in the NT news is that the Territory is covid free...The Feds are wanting to house all our return Australians (from overseas) here in Darwin...we have a workers village that holds 850 people...they want to expand it to 2000 to increase the return rate...Few countries have such a facility (even down south doesn't have one), so covid free Darwin gets all the sick people from overseas!
    Luckily its in the bush, away from people, which is one reason its so good...no one going in and out...locked down, everything brought to the people so they can hang at the village (which has huge pools - games rooms - theatres etc)
    Australia has begun the immunisation program...theres been a few hiccups...the Politicians old and new are publically getting their jab to show that its cool and won't turn you into a zombie... : )
    I saw face masks being burnt this weekend in the US...and a state making laws that you don't have to wear one...silly. Luckily the US have plenty of smart dudes like yourself that can think for himself. I'm glad the US is looking up, getting stronger every day.

    Howard Springs quarantine facility...looks cosy.

    When I check out the News feeds I like to click on the World News links. Not really surprised to see some are doing well and others - not so much. And that includes any aspect you'd read about : politics, employment, taxes and just general life.
    Life is what you make it. :D

    Just so you know, here in Northern Minnesota the ice on the lake is still two feet thick. That's about .6 meters for the rest of the World.

    Fark..thick enough for ice shenanigans! (Wouldn't mind a pic)

    Its dark and broody here...trying to make up its mind if it will rain...the cloud keeps the temp down though...its only 32C (about 90F) The local plovers have a new clutch - as of the weekend - of babies, little fluff balls running around! (Plovers don't build a nest they lay on the ground...the new chicks immediately start looking for food on their own, the parents just keep an eye on them and attack anything that comes near.) They also have a cool extra defence if attack doesn't work...they pretend to have a broken wing and walk away from the nest or chicks...the predator thinks the injured bird is an easy target and goes after the parent...who then flys away if they get too close...in the mean time the predator has moved away from her chicks.

    CAC said "I saw face masks being burnt this weekend in the US...and a state making laws that you don't have to wear one...silly."

    What is beyond silly is that the state where mask burning was is a state that does not require masks. But I've been through there and it is a weird place. Wife and I got our 1st shots on the 2nd try. Too much snow in The Pass to go on the first appointment. Side affect was an improved marital relationship. Go figure.

    You mean it wasn't mandatory...but they decided to exercise their "rights" anyway? Great to hear your healthy and have had a shot...we may get through this without losing a rogue...!

    But we shouldn't forget that we have rogues who have lost loved ones.

    A couple more. We see the Bald Eagles nearly every day. Years ago my wife and I were in a canoe just gliding along minding our own business and I watched one catching a thermal rising higher until it was barely a speck. It started down heading directly for us and passed over our heads at about 50 feet. And people asked us "Why did you move North"? Question answered I think.
