Since Halloween, restrictions have been slowly lifted. Restaurants were allowed to serve at 75% capacity. Back down to 25% capacity again. 

Yeah, it sounds and looks like you're dealing with it as we are. Not a drastically different approach. Not enough to warrant such a huge difference in numbers. I always just assumed that your larger population accounted for it, but obviously not. I don't get it.

Ok, this is where I step in. I absolutely will not tolerate politically correct outrage here. Jokes about men, women, Republican, Democrat, liberal, conservative, gay, straight, short, tall, skin

For people without comorbidities, COVID-19 is not the apocalyptical virus the media makes it out to be. As recently as 3 weeks ago (I think?) the WHO reversed itself, now saying that societal lockdown

There's a couple of posts of this nature and yes, that's no good. But again, this side of the coin gets well represented, but can we allow some representation for the other side of the coin? Or is thi

Yeah, but we had our Winter in June/July/August and our numbers weren't too bad. Also, if it's getting cold and people are indoors more often, then you'd expect to see lower numbers, wouldn't you? 

I really don't get it.

The measures put in place here a far more severe than what is in place in Maryland.
We were only allowed out of home for 1 hour per day to go shopping or exercise for a couple of months.
We had acurfew 8pm to 5am.
Fies were issued. etc etc

And those measures worked and got the numbers back to zreo new cases for the last 17 days.
So they fixed the major fuckup our state government made in allowing the second wave.
But I'm not going to mention how sucky the measures are that are still in place here as some think I should just deal with it and be thankful that we are doing well.
Of course I am, but apparently I have nothing to complain about...

I have to give kudos to the Australian government for taking the hard road of lockdowns to get the virus under control....most countries and politicians do not have that kind of courage....

Simply a state leader doing all he could to fix his massive fuck up.
Only reason it worked was that Australians seems to be happy to do whatever thaey are told (on the most part)
Like I said earlier, in the US, or most other countries, the public would never obey like we did.
In the end it was a good thing to be simps to the leaders, as it got the results, but they would be outrage overseas, with rights and constitution, and protests, and riots etc etc

Overall, we are luck, we are an island/continent/country.
We have much more control than somewhere like Europe.
Same with New Zealand, Fiji, etc

That's what I'd like to know.

Alpha, what exactly have been the measures/restrictions put in place in Maryland?

With case rates and hospitalization numbers climbing statewide, Hogan tightened coronavirus restrictions, returning indoor restaurant service to 50% capacity — down from 75%. He also “strongly” discouraged gatherings of more than 25 people and travel to states with similarly surging COVID-19 metrics.

Several jurisdictions have tightened restrictions further. Here’s where things stand:

Anne Arundel County: Starting Friday, gatherings will be limited to 10 people indoors and 25 people outdoors. Starting Monday, youth sports will be canceled. Starting Nov. 20, restaurants will be limited to 25% capacity. Other facilities, such as religious and retail establishments, can continue to operate at 50% capacity.

Baltimore City: As of Thursday, all indoor and outdoor facilities, including restaurants, gyms and theaters, must not exceed 25% capacity. All bars that don’t serve food must shut down, and all restaurants must close by 11 p.m. No more than 10 people will be permitted to gather in homes.

Baltimore County: Starting at 5 p.m. Sunday, all gatherings not related to operating or patronizing businesses already subject to state orders will be limited to 10 people indoors and 25 people outdoors and all bars and restaurants will be required to close at midnight. Beginning Tuesday, all youth recreational sports, indoor and outdoor, will be prohibited.

Harford County: Starting Friday, county facilities will close to the public, including indoor parks and recreation facilities. Organized outdoor activities on county fields, including sports tournaments, will be suspended, although county parks will remain open. County employees will be authorized to telework until further notice.

Montgomery County: As of Tuesday, restaurants, gyms, museums, retail establishments and religious facilities were all limited to 25% capacity. For other businesses, such as bowling alleys and hair and nail salons, capacity is limited to 25% or 25 people, whichever is lower. Gatherings of more than 25 people are prohibited.

Prince George’s County: Starting at 5 p.m. Sunday, restaurants will be limited to 25% capacity, down from 50% capacity. No more than 25 people will be permitted to gather outdoors, and no more than 10 indoors. Gyms and bowling alleys will be at 25% capacity, but large retails stores still will be allowed to operate at 50% capacity. Everyone is to wear masks outdoors unless exercising.

Not a huge departure from what we've been doing. A little late perhaps. Having different restrictions in different counties doesn't help either.

Restrictions had been eased over the last 2 months. We are now going backwards.

Folks I cooked scallops and shrimp tonight for dinner, I ate the whole fucking meal myself, and didn't taste a single flavor, not one, so I'm on the verge of postal, I had a PBJ at like 11am, tasted that, tasted the Guinness and the Mt. Dew, now it's like somebody sliced my taste buds off, it's fucking aggravating, not as aggravating as the money I spent on awesome groceries to keep myself eating and interested, all of which now I will leave and I guess just go with Ramen and $1 TV Dinners, FUCK!! this shit is a mother fucker!

Well there's absolutely no doubt about it, this aint any fuckin fun, it actually blows, I cant smell or taste anything, I have zero energy, that's putting it nicely, and yesterday I didn't dare leave the bathroom, I eventually just took a TV in there and camped out, but I'm nowhere close to being as sick right now as I felt last night, I dare to eat, and had to tonight, I think the worst thing about this shit is that unlike the flu, this doesn't make me so fucking rundown and exhausted, I just sleep the shit away, nope, fell asleep around 2am and woke up at 8am, last night fell out around 1am and woke up about 4:30am, if I can get a good chunk of sleep in, I actually think i'd feel better, but I definitely don't feel like usual, didn't even want to get online till just now, so fuck it, I'm not dead, Yet!

Well bro, I can honestly say, if shit has that wonderful texture, I would probably blow chunks before I even got it in my mouth, as far as tasting it, I can literally taste nothing, i just tried splashing Saracha on my tongue to see if I could taste it, nope, tabasco, nope, it did start to burn, it's pretty irrelevant what I eat or drink, so I'm keeping it to the cheapest shit I have, which probably isnt going to get me better any quicker, I'm so fucking bored.

Why thanks G-Off, and bro, I can tell you that I have 3 brothers, 2 are cops, those are the only 2 people in my immediate family who have not tested positive for it yet, ironic right, they are dealing and interacting with people daily, and they stayed in their house while their family's had to quarantine, and they still haven't tested positive, my daughter and her mom are ok after tomorrow, everyone else is still Quarantined, thanks for asking bro.

    • Already have a conversation goings ons here.
    • After 30 + years, it's finally here.......I have just finished listening to the new CD from Metallic Blue Records by the Reno, Nevada band RAWKON.  Back in 2004, I received a 6 track demo cassette recorded by RAWKON in 1987 from a  fellow collector in Nevada.  He was extremely excited on finding this tape and wanted to share it with me.   On the first play, it immediately reminded me of another  awesome Nevada band, "ROCK BOULEVARD".   As it turns out, RAWKON consisted of one member of ROCK BOULEVARD and this demo cassette turned out to be extremely rare and sought after.   Fast forward 16 years later to today,  those 6 tracks, along with others recorded at various times of the band's life,  are right here on a silver pressed CD.  There are a total of 13 tracks here with a very nice production and impressive liner notes.   One quick note.....the first 3 tracks have a production that is certainly that of a demo and of lesser quality than the remaining 10 tracks which are excellent, so don't become immediately disappointed .   These first 3 songs are from the band's first demo which were more heavy metal and before they got a keyboard player.   Even though they don’t have the same production as the rest of the album, it’s great to have these songs  to form a more complete discography.   Starting with track 4, it all changes and the production is top notch.  The notes are filled with thorough,  in depth info on the band, it's history and with numerous photos.   Certainly a high quality, collector minded release.   Musically, there's something here to satisfy a wide variety of musical tastes.   Grinding rockers with good axe work,  some mid tempo melodic songs with nice keys, melodic melodies and some extremely smooth AOR ballads that will delight the AOR-sters a great deal!  If you enjoy bands such as ROCK BOULEVARD, THEATRE, FLYWEIL or DOKKEN, you will surely enjoy all 13 tracks that RAWKON has to offer.  My hat's off to Metallic Blue Records for bringing us this rare glimpse of melodic rock history......  
    • Back in 1990 we saw the release of the Nevada band ROCK BOULEVARD's "Self Titled" CD that became a collectors crown jewel.  Fast forward to 2020 ...... METALLIC BlUE RECORDS has released a new CD by the band titled "Stand And Fight"  which consists of tracks recorded in 1988-89 prior to their debut CD.   You read that right.....another full length ROCK BOULEVARD album with all new songs that has sat in a can all these years waiting to be rediscovered.   My hands were shaking and my heart fluttering with excitement when I received my advance copy.   When I pressed play on my CD player, I wasn't disappointed and the excitement was absolutely worthwhile......On this new 10 track release, vocals duties on seven tracks are handled by Jeff Kerr and the final three tracks feature Deland Voth's vocals.  There have been some lineup changes here and there......as a result, some fresh new sounds are part of the experience.  On several tracks, the listener is taken down some new melodic rock paths filled with keyboards and melodious layered songs that drive true melodic rock fans wild...  then swiftly taking you along another road filled with wild and crazy hair metal leaving you dizzy with delight.  The intitial style blends melodic hard rock that sounds more like US Westcoast melodic hard rock in the RATT school with a BON JOVI influence.  The remainder comes off in the vein of a more melodic SKID ROW (debut), with a touch of SILENT RAGE, LILLIAN AXE(early), JILLSON and LANCIA.   All of it with a top notch production, great backup vocals and excellent guitar work.  A huge thumbs up to Metallic Blue Records for making this one available after all these many years.   This is a "huge" release.  Along with the newly discovered material,  I was extremely impressed with the extensive liner notes, band history and photos compiled with this CD.  The liner notes alone separate an impressive release from an otherwise ordinary one.   Oh, and I should add, like all Metallic Blue Label releases, this is silver pressed and not a CD-R as is the case with many independant labels these days.    Although recorded prior to the debut, this is a worthy essential to add to your collection.   I should not fail to mention that the highly collectable self titled ROCK BOULEVARD, now titled "I Got What You Want, is also now available from Metallic Blue Records with 2 bonus tracks.   Another quality release that is silver pressed and contains an excellent 12 page booklet filled with band history and photos.   Don't wait till it's too late, get both of these great releases while they are available.   Surely they will become collectors items in the future.

    • From Frontiers: Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to introduce Kreek, the new band fronted by ex-Bigfoot frontman Antony Ellis. This new rock ‘n roll machine from Ellis sees him keeping his foot firmly planted in the fertile U.K. hard rock scene from which he emerged. Kreek's self-titled debut album is due out February 12, 2021. Kreek was first formed in the summer of 2019 after Ellis’ had parted ways with Bigfoot, who would eventually disband. Impressed with Ellis’ vocal ability from their time working with his previous band, Frontiers reached to Ellis about continuing to work together. Ellis had already been thinking about putting something new together and was keen to create a great new hard rock band. He soon found a group of musicians in Nick Clarke (guitar), Lee Andrews (bass), and Seb Sweet (drums) who were ready to join him and thus Kreek was born. Produced by Dan Rossall (Passion, Revolution Saints), Kreek’s self-titled debut is now ready to be unleashed! Line-up: Antony Ellis - Vocals Nick Clarke - Guitar Seb Sweet - Drums Lee Andrews – Bass   Tracklist: 1. At The Bottom Of Hell 2. Missiles 3. Meet Your Maker 4. Million Dollar Man 5. One Voice 6. Man On My Shoulder 7. Stand Together 8. Down 'N Dirty 9. Get Up 10. You’re On Your Own   www.facebook.com/KreekUK
