Because I was just a little guy back then, I always considered it a drop, too.  I had already spent a LOT of time on the water of the lake, and "dropping" in a boat was disconcerting!

I would *love* to see the guns removed from FM.  The noise is annoying.

On the contrary, there is good science behind the reluctance to wear masks.  They make it much more likely that the virus will get to a wearer's lungs rather than remain in the upper respiratory tract; it is the cases where the lungs are infected that the most serious illness occurs.

Masks are being promoted as a means of limiting the exposure of others, not the wearer.  Whether that exchange makes sense is a statistical game whose outcome cannot yet be known.  But there is good reason to not wear a mask if you have been exposed because it can very much make your own condition worse.  At that point, you need to rely on isolation to avoid infecting others, not masks.

I find the recommendations that the CG change its rules and recommendations very interesting.  I wonder how this report would have impacted the trials, had it come to that.

I really don't care what other parks are doing--I have no interest in any of them. 

Nor do I feel like SDC owes me anything.  If I get to go twice this year, the SPs are paid for.  If I don't, it is as likely a function of my schedule as it is theirs. 

If they don't get to open at all, well, I figure the least of my problems is SPs bought and paid for last year.

General Silver Dollar City Talk / Contact Blacksmith

The Park Service in a nearby community is looking to commission two sand cast plaque/sign duplicates from an original.  I know that the artisans are not working right now, but I would like to help the director of the project get in contact with the right people at SDC to discuss the commission.  Can anyone suggest the best contact method/medium/target?

Thanks.

Karens?

WHAT DOES KAREN MEAN?
Karen is a mocking slang term for an entitled, obnoxious, middle-aged white woman. Especially as featured in memes, Karen is generally stereotyped as having a blonde bob haircut, asking to speak to retail and restaurant managers to voice complaints or make demands, and being a nagging, often divorced mother from Generation X.

The most famous “KAREN” is Kate Gosselin from John & Kate plus 8
The most famous

Ah!  Thanks for the education!  I suspected something like that form context, but I hate to assume.

It may be their sin, but, if I contribute to their bottom line, I am providing funds that they use to support causes I refuse to condone.  That contribution makes it my sin.



I guess I don't let things I read on the internet affect me that much. As Sister Gabriel would say "that's their sin, not mine". If their product is good and their service is good, I will go to their company. I do look for things like "We support St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, Wounded Warrior, etc." and given the choice I may go to one of those establishments over another, however I don't bash or hate on anyone just because Carole Baskin tells me to.

I will miss BG&BBQ if we lose it.

I am not sorry to have bought the passes.  SDC is goin to get hit hard financially this year.  Call whatever value I don't get to use a contribution to the future of the city.

But here in the US... well, firstly, we have a terrible healthcare system.

You have got to be kidding . . . .

1.  Pickers
2.  Train
3.  FM

That said, I would want to see a few people, too, not necessarily all at those places, so I doubt I could do it in one hour and be satisfied.

Honestly, SDC is becoming more about the people than the place anymore, especially since the place is being so drastically changed.

I was going to say that anyone who sets a specific date at this point is fooling himself.
