A memorial for all of those lives lost due to covid unveiled in Pollok park.

If I'm ever close I'll drop in, very touching.

A couple of relatives are going up to make a visit to this today, I'm afraid the pictures don't give it a very impressive, or suitably respectful, look.

Looks like it's been done on the cheap, and within a few months will start to look, well, just like wooden posts holding up trees. 

I can, sadly, also see them being easy targets for mindless vandalism. 

I'll reserve judgement until I hear from my relatives or see it for myself.

To keep this short, my aunt was really disappointed, and somewhat upset, at this attempt to recognise the sad deaths from Covid, including a close family relative.

So much so she left after 10 minutes, an absolute waste of money and looks cheap/tacky were her words.

In her, and my uncles opinion, this shows no respect and lacks the class a memorial should have.

I'll not bother giving it a visit, even the pictures I've managed to find look worse and worse with every look.

Admittedly, it didn’t look impressive on TV. Especially when this commemorates such a severe pandemic which spread rapidly from China to the rest of the globe, touching all our our lives.

Meanwhile another small step showing the rest of the world, outside a small part of London, East Kilbride & Stirling, are putting Covid behind us.............

U.S. drops Covid testing requirement for international travelers

The Biden administration will drop the Covid-19 testing requirement for inbound air travelers from abroad on Sunday, ending one of the longest-running travel restrictions of the pandemic.

The rule, put in place by the Trump administration in early 2021 and later tightened by the Biden administration, most recently required inbound travelers, including U.S. citizens, to show proof of a negative Covid test a day before boarding U.S.-bound flights. Travelers entering the U.S. at land border crossings were exempt.

 

The change takes effect at 12:01 a.m. ET on Sunday.

Go figure them numbers as a percentage of the population.

It's not over, neither is the flu, we live with it, well, most of us do. :byebye

They are indeed. I’d love to think that we were finished with it but we are not. Each country is at different stages with it and new waves are still happening. I look forward to the day when I can say that the F Man is right on this but that isn’t now. Worth recalling his opening post on this thread. An absolute classic!!

Do what I do and ignore the master baiter! 

The playground bully CU Next Tuesday isn't worth a response.

Deny him that orgasm.

Sometimes it’s hard to deny myself the pleasure his eloquent replies and emoji’s. Also a test to see if he is still as easy to get to react.
