Daily Quote: January 13, 2021

From birth to age 18 a girl needs good parents.
From 18 to 35 she needs good looks.
From 35 to 55 she needs a good personality.
From 55 on, she needs good cash.

~ Sophie Tucker (American – EntertainerJanuary 13, 1884 – February 9, 1966)

Porte Musings:

Well, it’s official our province of Ontario is again under extreme measures, as the second state of emergency in less than a year has been declared. No one is to leave their house for anything except necessities. Luckily the list of necessities includes trips to the grocery store or pharmacy, medical appointments and exercise. For all other reasons we are to remain at home. When outside we are limited to groups of 5 and it is now advised that you wear a mask at all times.

Hospitals are reaching their capacity limits and tough decisions will have to start to be made regarding who will receive treatment and who won’t. The second wave of COVID-19 is much worse than the first. The good news is that for the first time in more than a week our number of cases was less than 3,000 per day.

Some regions won’t have in school classes until at least February 10, 2021 and I predict that other school boards will do the same even without the Provincial restriction.

People are now very anxious for the vaccine, but the availability has caused problems with priorities. Some non-essential workers or high risk individuals are butting into line and taking the place of those with higher priority. Those who didn’t follow government guidelines and travelled to Florida are able to pay for their vaccines ($300 per shot) and again get vaccinated before ones who followed the restrictions or can’t afford the travel/vaccine.
