Are masks being mandated again where you live?

I see some states encouraging it and at least one state I saw has the right idea about recommending N95s and KN95s. Those masks are the ones that will protect you the most!

Whether you have kids or not :) Sometimes I do ‘play’ with my food. Don’t take life too seriously. Just have fun. It releases endorphins. :)
If you do, what sort of foods works the best?

We use organic olive, sustainable Palm oils to cook. We've tried other ones but we stick with those 2 as our staples.
For personal care, they can replace lotions, olive, apricot kernel (fave), jojoba, grapeseed, sweet almond. I make lotion balms & have alternated which oil I use.

Or have them be around? Do they try to get in on the action? My cats are used to me being on the floor with them, playing, cuddling, etc. So whenever I'm on the floor, they think it's fair game lol They don't realize that sometimes I'm there & it has nothing to do with them! If it's intense...

It's about time someone in the justice system took a stand for the freedoms of the people in the US. Cloth masks have been shown to have around 10% efficacy. So why are people upset that the mask mandates for airlines are gone now when they're the ones wearing the masks that help no one? My...

Where I live near a creek there are a lot of different frog sounds.

People should be able to feel sad if they want to. Now, I don't advocate men crying and stuff like that, however, they should have the freedom to be sad. Now, with anti-depressants people are just happy in a weird way and they cannot react to things as normal people would. It's healthy for...
