        Ugh, sorry to hear that. Can't imagine how hard that is.

        • Rumors are that some of the current travel restrictions to Thailand will be slightly eased starting in October in varying degrees:

          -Thai passport holders (my wife included) no restrictions but 14-day quarantine depending upon previous travel
          -Non-Thais - can enter only if staying for 90+ days and again 14-day quarantine depending upon previous travel

          This is not yet confirmed. How this likely impacts our annual trek in December during the kid's D-term is we don't even yet know if they will have a full D-term since the school year started later than normal. The family could do the 90-day stay as their school is 100% virtual, but if they have to do a 14-day quarantine then the decision is made more difficult.

          My work would likely allow me to leave for 90-days as I could accomplish everything I do away from the office but getting someone to watch the dog for 90 days is likely a non starter.

          • Many more restaurants open in Heathrow than last time mookie passed..... which is ironic as the uk is in stage 4 or whatnot here and the board has tons of cancellations up.

            either way the sushi was nice and the girl warned mookie to buy up on beers as there is no option to order alcohol only later on

              During the midde of all the mandates in MN, apparently MSP airport does not have a mask mandate in place, and people can belly up to the bar without social distancing. My BIL and his wife were there, on their way to Florida in mid-October (MEA weekend for the Minnesotans). And they own a bar, so they were especially observant of this fact, and it's made them very anti-Walz the past few weeks even though they weren't so much like that before then.

                That is a really weird exemption. It is a common misconception that everything behind security at the airport is strictly federal jurisdiction. In reality, the "sterile area" is subject to the same state and local laws/executive orders as almost everywhere else in the US.

                  The argument that I've heard used is that if you are behind security in an airport, you really don't have another option for eating. It's not like you could go to a grocery store, then go home and prepare a meal.

                  Now, that doesn't really excuse keeping the bar portion of those places open. Do it like everywhere else, "take out" only.

                  We also have the situation in Minnesota where the casino bars and restaurants are also open. That may be a different situation, under tribe jurisdiction and all, but as far as I know Walz has not made any attempt to get them to comply.
                  That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

                          I discovered playing Crusader Kings how many mountains there are in Spain. Before I thought of it as Classy Mexico.

                          I also discovered the learning curve for Paradox Games is steeper than Chinese, Heidegger, or General Relativity.
