  1. BREXIT positives and negatives

    So what's the skinny on Boris?  Will he be forced to resign?  Would love to hear what the natives think.  https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2022/jan/14/booze-swing-no-10-hangover-party-prince-philip-boris-johnson
  2. 3G in Restaurants?

    I am using the Swiss App, Covid Certificate, and it shows which vaccine I took.  Potential solution for these folks.  And yes, they have a right to complain.
  3. 3G in Restaurants?

    Today I woke up to the front page of the paper saying starting today we can only wear FFP2 masks in stores.  Headed to Edeka and the same old OP sign 😷 was there and most workers, as well as customers, had the surgical ones.  🤪
  4. 3G in Restaurants?

    The danger of getting caught is not so high, and every uncovered fraud points to many more that are undetected.  I was naive on this until I read more and talked to people from Eastern European countries.  😕  Erect a barrier and people will search for the way around it.
  5. 3G in Restaurants?

    After months of reading numerous articles like this one about a boom in false passes I am becoming increasingly skeptical that a 2G ecosystem even exists.  As one article stated, when you think it’s 2G it’s really 3G (Geimpft, Genesen, oder Gefälscht).  Food for thought. https://www.dw.com/de/der-boom-gefälschter-impfpässe/a-60104829
  6. 3G in Restaurants?

    I strongly disagree, despite the fact that I think data privacy is very important.  A hospital should know the COVID vaccination status of every single person on the premises, just as the nursing home up the street from me does.  It can help with statistics about transmissibility.  BTW I was showing my proof of vaccination to visit.  If you look back at my posts at that time you will see that I questioned why i did not have to present a negative test as well.  
  7. 3G in Restaurants?

    Was not obvious to me. I find it shocking that a hospital would not know the COVID vaccination status of each and every patient housed there.  But my husband (fully vaccinated) had the same experience in mid-October with elective surgery, only a negative test was required.  I asked him "do you know if your Zimmerpartner is vaccinated?". His response was "Since most people his age are, I am assuming he is.". Were immunocompromised patients sleeping in rooms with unvaccinated patients?  The protocol didn't make sense to me.  Hopefully it's changed since then. 
  8. Regular job as a side hustle

    Here’s my take:  Hustler has multiple meanings.  It can refer to a go getter/ambitious type, a swindler, or a male prostitute.  A side hustle is a side job/ambition and is closely related to the go getter term.  Of course swindling and prostituting are ambitious behaviors too.  😉 
  9. Why are you unhappy today?

    Oh my Bramble.  Thinking of you with these back to back losses.  🥲  What a good life you gave these beautiful creatures.  And BTW, my 5 yo granddaughter now visiting just saw this photo and said „Oma, ist das ein echter Wolf?“  😊
  10. Getting vaccinated without health insurance

    They are free to anyone here in Konstanz, regardless of where you live and what you speak.  No health card is necessary.
  11. Why are you happy today?

     My son and my adorable 5 yo Germerican-Armenian granddaughter arrived from Yerevan today for a 2 week visit.  😊
  12. What made you smile today?

    A beautiful story, in the Croatian mountains, of a dog keeping a stranded hiker alive until he was rescued.  😊 https://news.google.com/articles/CAIiEP99l53cQKlX90mUxVcMxNEqFwgEKg4IACoGCAowl6p7MN-zCTDZ4PsF?hl=en-US&gl=US&ceid=US%3Aen
  13. How do I Register myself in a State (USA)?

    If you live in KS then you have to drive across the border to CO for that legal pot.  😂
  14. How do I Register myself in a State (USA)?

    Since your father is in Florida that would normally be your starting point.  Extended family members don’t play a role.  Sadly, Florida likes to disempower voters, but you can click on the link here about getting in touch with your election office. https://www.fvap.gov/citizen-voter/reside
  15. 3G in Restaurants?

    What’s being discussed is a duty to vaccinate (with exceptions) and a corresponding fine if one chooses not to.  No one is talking about someone sticking a needle in anyone‘s arm against his or her will.  Stick to the facts. https://www.tagesschau.de/inland/allgemeine-impfpflicht-101.html
