    Missionaries Kidnapped in Haiti

    If they are Evangelicals, their faith requires them to "evangelize" regardless of the risk. Evangelicals...who needs them? The fact that Haiti is on the U.S. State Department Do Not Travel list seems to have meant very little, if anything at all, to them, says it all. No government can tell them...

    Massive protest in SD about Chris Columbus

    I certainly don't think anyone is trying to erase history. If we erase history, how could we ever learn from the mistakes made and progress toward a better future for the entire human race. It is more a case of putting things in their proper perspective. Columbus was not a great man for all...

    What I learned from being in a coma for 10 days in the the hospital with covid

    You are right. The FDA has approved Ivermectin for human use. Ivermectin tablets are approved by the FDA to treat people with intestinal strongyloidiasis and onchocerciasis, two conditions caused by parasitic worms. In addition, some topical forms of ivermectin are approved to treat external...

    Hah. Off hand I can think of a few reasons to take what this guy is selling with a grain of salt, and not one has anything to do with his Canadian citizenship. For starters... https://apnews.com/article/joe-biden-canada-technology-gun-politics-religion-a7dd90823ca346534f1087ba0b1071b1 Now...

    What I learned from being in a coma for 10 days in the the hospital with covid

    First and foremost, thank-you for sharing your experience. It sounds as though you are on the mend and that is a good thing. Here's hoping there will not be many potholes in the road ahead. For all those who have jumped on the "let's bash the hospital" train... There is a brighter side to the...

    Enough already with the ridiculous graphs. Without context they are a joke. Just a bunch of squiggly lines and capitalized letters. Geez. Again... Sigh.

    No curfew but with a vaccination card or PCR test to enter establishments

    Sigh. How is that simple graph on its own meant to convey anything other than to rouse and shock. Increased numbers of Covid cases? Okay. Why? Are the hospitalizations and deaths rising in tandem? If a person really wants to know the answers to those questions in plain unadulterated english, The...

    That's the problem with "rage googling". ICYMI: But one thing both the airline and its pilots union, the Southwest Airline Pilots Association (SWAPA), agreed on is that a pilot walkout was in no way responsible for the meltdown. Conservative media over the weekend suggested that SWAPA, upset...

    No curfew but with a vaccination card or PCR test to enter establishments

    Hah. Problem solved. There is no need for an unvaccinated Canadian to worry about being able to enter a grocery store when on vacation in the D.R. Their bigger problem will be finding a way to get there. https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/canada-proof-of-vaccine-travel-1.6203642

    No curfew but with a vaccination card or PCR test to enter establishments

    Everything about this virus has been a race against time. Not only the number of deaths but, the manner of those deaths, is terrifying. The way in which healthcare systems have been overrun is awful to see. The long term symptoms in those who have been "lucky" enough to escape with only moderate...

    No curfew but with a vaccination card or PCR test to enter establishments

    Ever hear about the carrot and stick approach? The case of vaccine passports, QR code for maximum efficiency, is such an approach.. A carrot for the good minded folk that are willing to get on board and do whatever they can to help the world get back on an even keel. A stick for the rest. A...

    No curfew but with a vaccination card or PCR test to enter establishments

    Of course any decision should be arrived at in consultation with her doctor(s). She will have consulted with her personal doctors then? Are you suggesting that her personal doctors have advised against her getting the vaccine? That's interesting that they would disagree with the available...

    No curfew but with a vaccination card or PCR test to enter establishments

    I think that, in their rush to keep up with the Jones's (aka fully developed countries), the Dominican government might have gone a step too far. For instance... In most of the countries where vaccine "passports" have become the norm, certain essential services have been precluded from the...

    ONIONS in everything!

    No kidding. Last night I was feeling really lazy and threw in a frozen portion of my famous baked spaghetti. I needed an extra jolt of protein so I took out some frozen shrimp, ran them under cold water, dried them as best I could. I added chopped onions, smashed and sliced garlic. Then a...

    Hah. Different strokes for different folks I put onions in everything. I could not survive without them. Any old which way. Cilantro? No thanks...Can't stand it. Funnily enough I like the seed, coriander.

    Problems with Vaccines.. past and present.

    When we start quoting/linking places like... You tube/Project Veritas Well, let's just say that we might be diving into "alternative facts" territory. They have a very sketchy track record. Can you say take it with a grain of salt? How about an entire salt shaker?

    where to buy "topas" (toilet seats) in Santo Domingo or Samana

    As long as we are on the subject...What is the real reason why there are so many toilets without seats (tapas) in the D.R.?
