Many who work in nursing homes are poorly paid, as well as not highly educated,

They fear missing a day of work and pay more than what they see of Covid.
My daughter (in her late 50's) lives in a long-term care facility.
All cases of Covid were brought in by staff, not family or friends.
Thank goodness, no deaths among residents so far.

I'm in Ohio as well, and heard on the evening news that the worst of the Delta variant

will go south to MS, LA, FL and to WY and ID next. It will likely get going in OH and Midwest in the fall.
I'm in the older, most vulnerable age bracket, and believe that the greatest number of my contemporaries got vaccinated soon as it was available. Men of this age had mostly been in the military, where, I understand several vaccinations were administered as soon as one was sworn in.

Still, I'm rather personally cautious, and don't do a lot of gallivanting around more because of age limitations than fear of Covid, at this time.
There's also the Lambda variant, started in Peru and now spreading throughout South America.
I believe we'll all end up taking booster shots by year's end, which is okay by me.
Do your Christmas shopping early, and get in all your yearly physical exams family events early rather than later.

My son is near the coast near Sarasota.

He is sensible and I believe he will be safe.
Hope his building, with open garage, doesn't get a lot of sea-driven rainwater.
It will all be over within ca 12 hours for that area.
Next - GA, and the eastern seaboard.
Still early in the hurricane season.

Yes, prayers for all.

Too early to tell. Which one can get the establishment behind him/her, and who performs

best on media. etc?

Doubt Josh Mandel will be elected US Senator. He likely won't even be the

Republican candidate.

Family intervention and mental evaluation needed immediately.

This is not normal human behavior.
Hard to process this.

Reminiscent of the "olden days" when people went to the movies

for the air conditioning in the heat of summer.

Large signs outside the theatres read
"AIR CONDITIONED".

Son lives in 4-story condo building near Sarasota; open garage under 1/2 of building.

I hope all the bases are covered, but likely owners are looking over their shoulders about now.
