Re: Daily "Check In" Thread For Us

I look forward to becoming strong again. Super powerful Tortoise. I remember telling my gal one time, ‘I don’t feel strong anymore.’ It changes your perspective on everything.

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

The issue isn't living with Covid forever. We are living with the flu forever and go about our lives anyway. The issue is living with the masks, lockdowns and new draconian government power that Covid has brought that we can't endure. Very well said. You think it's bad now, buckle your seatbelt. I ...
