      Does anyone know how to make a meme? I'd like to see Chicken little running around in a circle screaming THE SKY IS FALLING, with Fauchi,s head
      Maybe I can clear this up.....I thought the cop was a prostitute.

      • 43 Well, we did the Good Guys Heartand Nationals in Des Moines last weekend. Friday, July 3d through Sunday, the 5th. We estimated about 50/50 wearing masks on Friday, only about 40% Saturday & maybe 25-30% on Sunday. About 4,000 cars (we heard) which is down from the usual 6-7k cars. The motel situation might be the most interesting to those on here. We were at our usual HIE a few blocks south of the host hotel. It was about 1/2 full but seemed deserted. We never saw anyone working anywhere except at the desk. And then only when we checked in on Thursday afternoon, when we left on Sunday morning & maybe one other time somewhere in that time frame. And most importantly, breakfast. Only a couple of pre-wrapped muffin choices, sealed cereal choices & some milk & juice containers. No eggs, bacon, sausage or cinnamon rolls. The guy on the counter when we were checking out said that they may reopen the full kitchen after the first of the year. After the first day Laura said, "We're going to McDonalds". Not my favorite but there was one on the way to the show. Personally I kind of figure that the breakfast was part of what I was paying for at $108 per night. And, by the end of the weekend we were talking about how much the motel situation will play into whether or not we will go on PT. We are probably only 50/50 right now. Looks as though this will probably not be resolved until about the middle of November.

                        • 42....the thing about HIE is you get a consistent room quality and the a/c usually works well and are modern enough where you can override the temp limit codes

                              That's a good plan Phil because if we would not have been hanging with local friends for most of the weekend, we would not have had a clue what restaurants were open & which were not.
