  3. It is that time of the year again !!! This has been my 8th attempt .... wish me luck
  4. Earlier
  5. This coming Monday marks my 2nd week after my 2nd Pfizer shot... all those delayed plans from last year are looking more likely ! In fact we have rebooked most of them. Here’s hoping summer will be fun. And that the vax corridors with Europe actually happen.
  6. Follow up on Covid-19 vaccine : Got our second shot of Moderna vaccine! Had no side effects beside a slightly sore arm....Will finally go to the shopping mall in two weeks time.πŸ˜€
  7. Here is a interesting article from USA Today. https://www.usatoday.com/in-depth/money/2021/04/22/irs-tax-season-2021-file-last-tax-return-deceased-relatives/7016848002/ There is one benefit of having a life insurance policy as it is like having a mini will. The beneficiaries nominated are paid out directly.
  8. South Africa has launched registration for the Covid Vaccination yesterday. The plan is to start vaccinations for the over 60 age group starting sometime in May 2021 https://www.sanews.gov.za/south-africa/registration-covid-19-vaccine-now-open-those-over-60 Good NewsπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ
  9. According to the news over 4% of the US population that have received the first covid vaccination have not gone back for the second shot.😲 Absolutely amazing!
  10. Had our first dose of the Moderna vaccine yesterday. If we waited two days we could have got the Pfizer vaccine. So after 6 hours of getting the Moderna shot. I had some popping in my ears like when you are about to get the flu, followed by Tinnitus in my left ear. My wife just had a sore arm. I have narrow ear canals from all the swimming and surfing as a youngster. But on day 2 I'm feeling perfect . 2nd shot scheduled for April 28. In the news last night was the story on the Johnson $ Johnson Vaccine they had to destroy 15 million doses as they were mixed incorrectly. The whole batch was destroyed and production has been delayed at the plant near Baltimore.
  11. Game of Thrones will be heading to Broadway in 2023!
  12. 1st dose of Moderna last Wednesday and booked for 2nd shot on April 21st. Both with Walgreens and super easy to book. That being said it took a week to find an open slot but the actual booking process on line was easy.

    USA Passports renewed

    Received the expired US Passports back with two round holes punched in the cover page.
  15. That's Terrific News!
  16. Got my first dose, Pfizer, today.
  17. Good luck Oscar. Our county has been pretty good getting people appointments at the county and state sites. The hospitals and pharmacies are luck of the draw, some people have been very successful and others not so much. Walgreens opens up every 5 days it seems for the next 5 days. If you catch the morning they open there is a few hours before they are all booked up again.
  18. Finally got an appointment for Wednesday March 31 for the Covid vaccine. We have been registering on state and local websites and even some hospitals with only the initial reply that they had us in the system. The websites of supermarkets and big pharmacies never appear to have a vaccine or any availability in miles. So today we did something different. Walked around Manhattan for some exercise and did a few walk ins to the pharmacies. Ist Pharmacy: They had no availability today, but suggest I try their website around midday as that's when they refresh their web page and they get their inventory. The other suggestion was to arrive at the Pharmacy at 5:15pm each day to see if they have any leftover vaccine from people that were no shows for their appointment . 2nd Pharmacy was totally unhelpful all I got was No. 3rd Supermarket Pharmacy: Got an appointment set for Wednesday afternoon for the Moderna vaccine. Viola! What reliefπŸ˜€πŸ˜„ So this proves that waiting around to get an appointment though the internet is extremely annoying and time wasting. For anyone out there trying to get an appointment get in your car and go talk to the a couple of pharmacists directly . What a successful day πŸ€ͺ!
  19. Broadway is planning on reopening in the fall. (September 2021) πŸ˜€ it will be nice to see NYC slowly come back to life again. There are so many restaurants and business shut down which will never return.

    Hot Cross Buns!

    Here is something, that is quite ridiculous about hot cross buns. I certainly miss the Woolworths ones. Watch: Do not eat hot cross buns and drive (capetownetc.com)

    USA Passports renewed

    oh! Thanks for the heads up!

    USA Passports renewed

    I renewed mine about 6 months ago (Also not going anywhere soon but better to be prepared right?) and they sent my old one back to me a couple of weeks after the new one arrived.
  23. Just had our US Passports renewed, they had expired a year ago. The process was pretty smooth, we paid the additional express charges and got them renewed within three weeks. Not that we are going anywhere soon. They don't give you your old passport back.
  24. Congrats guys. We are lower priority so still waiting for vax, but gratifying to see how this administration really pushed to go full steam ahead with the rollout. And grateful to know we should be vaccinated before our early summer trip, which we had postponed from last summer.
  25. Thanks Jumping Jason! We are really looking forward to getting the shot or shots. Our long weekend trip to Ocean City MD was booked months ago for the 4'th July Weekend really looking forward to that. Also just renewed our USA passports that had expired a year ago. its been a tough year, so many shops and businesses closed down. But now there is some light at the end of the tunnel.πŸ˜€
