Was starting to get a sinus infection yesterday, I could feel it. They are very familiar to me. I get them from time to time, always at this time of year and I usually try to wait it out but always end up getting a prescription for an antibiotic.

For kicks I took some horse paste and then some MMS yesterday. All symptoms gone by this morning.

In an unrelated stream of consciousness, went to an indoor rink hockey game in an affluent North Suburb of Chicago. Mom of one of the players I was going with warned me that the Karen crowd would be p-o'd if I didn't wear a mask. She's a good friend and very used to my civil disobedience mindset. I told her if it was going to embarrass her son I would wear one. NO ONE had a mask on. These are people that were wearing masks when the mandate had expired in Lake County (it's back on).

Went shopping again today in near north suburb and no one said a thing about my maskless face. I was in the store for over an hour. Another masked customer came up to me to tell me to go ahead and buy the sweater I was holding because she has one and loves it. Sounds like a small thing but I think it's a very good sign.

Most of us here in Central Illinois are done with the mask. I haven't been approached in a long time - even in Costco and Menards!

I just start coughing when people start to near me, they back up and go away.

Same here, and I'm embedded in the Belly of the Beast -- DC. Only the lost forever covidiots are still wearing them.

As an almost former resident of DC (Northern Virginiastan to be specific), I can tell you that folks are still masked at a 50% rate in NoVA. Especially in the grocery stores. I haven't been in DC proper, but I'm sure they are triple masked, quadruple vaxxed and with face shield.

Is it me or has Pritzker been awfully quiet the last few months? At the beginning he was giving daily addresses.

OMG - I was thinking the same exact thing!! That's why I'm not surprised to be out and see so many cars on the road, people out and about, most of them without masks! It's glorious to see! Maybe something is finally happening to shut these tyrannical governors down?? I also saw something about the witch in Michigan finally giving in?? Let's pray frens!! God Bless!
