A sure sign of recovery: We are allowed full capacity at events. Last night was our twins 8th grade graduation and we were able to have anyone who wanted to attend, come and watch, even the Governor of Utah. His daughter was among the 8th grade class who graduated last night. We sat behind him just a little bit, and yep, you guessed it, he was not wearing a mask, nor was the vast majority of the people. Looks like fear loses, and life goes on as normal. It's a great feeling!!



He was probably vaccinated, just like Trump and all of his family, so they don't have to wear masks according to new CDC guidelines. Over 50% of the adult population is now vaccinated. So there is a good chance that at least half the people at the event were probably vaccinated. Fear is losing because more and more people are being vaccinated. What about those that refuse? They complain about their loss of freedom. Free to do what infect others? If they really want things back like before faster, then get the damn shot, or shut up. It seems inconsistent to, insist on freedom, then not do the very things that insure we will be able to go back to a new normalcy.


Actually LR, he was vaccinated. And you are correct in the % of people "total" in Utah that have been vaccinated. However, that % is quite lower here in the county I live. In fact, It's only about 30% of the population total have had both shots.

The real number though that counts is the number of infected, which is so low that the Health Dept has only been updating that number about once a week now on their website. We sit at a total of 13 people who have tested positive at last update. Although I do suspect that number to be quite exaggerated even still. I believe they are double counting some of the people/tests. Their website shows that so far this entire pandemic, that over 24,000 more "people" (not individual tests) have been tested so far than actually we have total residents in the entire district. As a state, the % of "people" tested stands at about 83%. That number suggests that we have had thousands of people come in from other districts, solely to get tested at our test sites,,,which is totally absurd. If this were the case, the percentage of people from outside our area would be 30% of people tested live outside our covered area. We all know that is so far fetched since tourism has all but stopped. This makes the credibility of the health departments website pretty non-existent. This has been my argument the entire last year+. The amount of inaccurate information out there is astounding. I won't even get started on the deaths being mis-categorized.

I know all of us have been frustrated and affected with the entire pandemic and how it has been handled. I am just glad to see a reasonable level of normalcy to return. Karaoke is just a tiny little part of it too, but I am glad to see it return as well.

Bob, this is one thing I would not choose that exact phrase to describe Alan. I don't think I am allowed to put into print the words that come to mind when describing him.

You're just jealous. You wish you were as funny, witty, and insightful as Alan. Without Alan, this place would be a Loserfest of Lone Ranger wannabes in a never ending battle of bad news, and who wants that? :dontknow:

No, not jealous at all. I would never want to be as rude as someone like him. I will take polite and informative anytime over what some of the stuff he says. Can't he add his charm and wit without being condescending? This forum has gone downhill because of people like him, and others.

Really? You poor misguided little soul. First of all, you have no perception of reality and secondly, no sense of humor.

I believe I addressed your criticism of me in response to your post on page 3 of this thread. But in case you missed it:

My dear mrscott;
I'm sorry that you find me so rude. But that's OK. You are entitled to your opinion. I have always been one to speak the truth, at least what I believe to be the truth. I speak from the heart and say exactly what I feel. I don't sugar coat it. I'm not trying to be rude, just honest. It has always been my intention to offer advice that may be beneficial. I am not trying to be hurtful, I'm trying to be helpful. I believe my being helpful led you to your purchase of the Evolve 50.


Now answer me... Was I being rude when I helped you make your purchase decision on the Evolve 50? I thought I was being very helpful, wasn't I? No complaints, right?

Now, I have helped many people on this forum. I've tried to offer honest opinions and helpful advice. I've even designed logos for two forum members for their karaoke business. All because I want to help people.

So, if you don't like my attitude or think I'm the rudest person on the planet, so be it. But I think you need to stop flapping you douche bag lips and get with the program. And please... get a fu*king sense of humor!

Don't break your arm patting yourself on your back Alan.

And you did it yet, again by trying to belittle someone (me, the douche bag lip owner). No, you are not "always" rude, but when you are, it's for your own hostile attitude towards someone who does not think like you, or agree with your beliefs. (Democrat, EV, vaccinated...etc), and then you call them names, "idiot, moron, douche bag lips etc". All the while, you praise yourself and your beliefs above all others and keep patting your own back and tooting your own horn. That is the very definition of a narcissist.

Fine, you help people, including me, "sometimes". That's great. Why not just leave it at that and say "you are welcome when they say thank you". No, you can't do that! You degrade so many people on here that you (and a few others) have chased people away from this forum.

This forum used to have literally hundreds of active users, and now we are down to maybe a dozen or so. New people NEVER stick around anymore to share or learn because of of how much "drama" has been created. I came here to gain and share knowledge with others that have a common interest (karaoke), and I am pretty sure in the beginning you did as well. Since then, you have taken it upon yourself to make sure others know who you are and how you think. Personally, I do not like your attitude. I won't say I don't like "you", because simply we have never met.

And by the way, I have a terrific sense of humor. But when it comes to people putting others down, I do not stand for it one little bit. I have dealt with bullies so much in my life, it makes me angry when I see it happening. It's not a laughing matter.

Over the next few days I will be once again traveling, seeing how different areas are dealing with the pandemic. Nevada is supposed to be open for business completely June 1st mid way through our mini vacation. I'm limiting my travel though until herd immunity is finally reached by vaccination. I'll tell you how the trip went, the recovery continues, stay tuned.

Just back from the trip, it was fun since I saw my daughter, and we all watched the Australian BGEE's show. For being back to normal, yes and no. Las Vegas is not much fun like it used to be. Gone are the all you can eat meals, most of the staff were wearing masks, not any of the patrons. The tables have been raised so the new courtesy table seems to be 10.00. Hey you are talking to a guy who can remember the 50cent black jack tables at the Orbit, and Coin Castle downtown. Slots of Fun had 10cent roulette. Now you are even charged to parking at most hotels, even if you are staying there? The crowds are still smaller than usual. Most people are unsure where the country is going, and are staying home, holding on to their cash. At least this is what most casino workers think is happening.

Welcome home/back Lone Ranger. I am very glad you enjoyed your trip and your visit with your daughter. It's such a blessing to be able to do that sort of stuff,,, for you and for them. I know every time I get to see my children and grandchildren, I will always make the most of the opportunity.

With that being said, isn't it funny how each state or region is different in the recovery part of all this crap? I really doubt places that are super high density or high traffic/tourism areas will ever (well at least for a very long time) return to pre-pandemic normality. Las Vegas for example has always been a place where people from all over the world come to play. Alternatively, here in Utah, we are almost back to pre-pandemic levels. And in fact some things are even better than they were before. Take for instance the unemployment rate is lower than it was before @ 3.1% then, and now @ 2.8%. It's had the opposite effect on business. Meaning business's are having trouble finding employees. In Logan (college town), almost every single larger business (non mom & pop places) have "help wanted" signs. Some limit their hours because they cannot cover shifts. Even here in our small county (population almost 30,000), has the same problem. Almost every county has similar issues. I makes it hard to go out to dine because some places close early.

Speaking of going out to eat. Even when you are able to support eateries, you hardly ever see anyone wearing masks anymore, including the staff. There are still some people who choose to wear them, and that is certainly their choice. 28 of the 29 counties are now in the "moderate or lower" case count for coronavirus cases. The only county that is not, only has 6 new cases in 14 days, but because the population is so low, it drives the percentage higher. Our county has a total of 9 active cases (3 new in 5 days). There are 4 counties that have no cases at all. Last weekend there was pretty big festival that was held that draws thousands of people, yet no new spread that we have noticed so far. And this weekend there is the largest car show of the year in the state being held in one of our largest towns. We will see in a few days what the outcome will be from both of these events.

Our governor has now limited his public reports and press conferences down to every other week. And for the last 4 weeks, everything was on the downturn for cases. As a state we are over 50% fully immunized as a whole. And coincidently, for each age category, the percentage of vaccinated seems to be fairly close to the same as the age category (ae: 70% for the 70+ age, 80% for the 80+, etc). Several immunization sites have stopped and closed up shop because we seem to have slowed down sufficiently enough that they are no longer needed at certain locations. Although, each day the reports still say we have tens of thousands of new people getting their vaccination.

The road to recovery has been long and hard on us all. I don't follow other states to see where they are, but I truly hope that most, if not all are having similar outcomes.

Again, LR,,, welcome home.

mrscott... you are full of sh*t. Utah is one of the few states that have seen vaccinations fall below 15 daily shots per 10,000 residents. Overall, 1,058,898 people or 33.03% of Utah's population have been fully vaccinated as of June 5. This goes to show that the majority of Utah residents do not want or plan on getting the shots.

So, mrscott... it has been said that the people in Utah are very stupid, especially when it comes to doing the right thing regarding the Corona Virus.

Seriously??!! That's not what I read. But then again, Trump supporters have a way of distorting the truth. By the way, nice gobbly-gook rhetoric in your lengthy response to LR.

Like it or not Alan, all I did was give an update to the reports that are made public to us, nothing more. As far as their accuracy, I will not say they are the gospel truth (some of them I do not believe one little bit either).

Seriously Alan? Why do you make things so personal? You are only reinforcing the type of person I believe you to be. And that ain't good.

Just one question Mr.Scott will the current administration get any of the credit for actually getting the country back to normal? You know actually doing the hard work of trying to govern, and not making this country a laughing stock for the rest of the the world?

I am not sure of which "administration" you are referring to,,, state or federal. If it's state, our former governor was weak in how he handled the pandemic (in my opinion), and the current governor (who was the former governor's lieutenant governor) has been much more decisive and quick to make decisions and changes. The new governor's ratings are quite high, much higher than the former one. Now, if you are speaking of federal administration, we all know that things were set in motion by Trump (money towards research and fast tracking the vaccines), but how they have been set up and utilized (spread out) is all on Biden's watch. So far, personally, I think it's been fairly efficient on how it's been handled. As far as getting back to normal, I think it's been more of the individual states that have dictated how things are returning to normal for each state. Give credit due to where it lies.

Sometimes it feels like getting into a "discussion" with a Southern Baptist "bible basher" on this forum. No matter what question a person asks, when you answer them your honest feedback, they come up with a response of "Oh, yeah,,, well what about 'xxx'? And they try and trip you up and twist something you might not have worded exactly the best way. Why not just accept an honest answer or response for what it is and move forward? It's ok to "not" agree on everything. It's OK to have an opinion, but it's not OK to tear someone down or belittle them for having such differences.

I know everyone likes to be "right", and I certainly have done my share of "discussion", and for those who I may have crossed the line sometimes, I certainly apologize. I may not agree with everything someone says or believes, but I can certainly accept their own beliefs and opinions. I would hope that others on here feel the same way as well.

By the way, this is not aimed at any "one" particular person on here. Rather, I have several people that have crossed the line in mind. This is just an added thought.

Maybe a good place to start is to read the post of the person that you want to respond to so you don't offer advice that doesn't meet their needs. Maybe I in the past might not have given enough information on what I wanted to accomplish but I seemed to get responses that never came close to even what I did post and that's why I always ended up doing my own research and usually chose to ignore some of the replies. For the matter I don't just look here for advice but on other forums as well.

Sometimes it feels like getting into a "discussion" with a Southern Baptist "bible basher" on this forum. No matter what question a person asks, when you answer them your honest feedback, they come up with a response of "Oh, yeah,,, well what about 'xxx'? And they try and trip you up and twist something you might not have worded exactly the best way. Why not just accept an honest answer or response for what it is and move forward? It's ok to "not" agree on everything. It's OK to have an opinion, but it's not OK to tear someone down or belittle them for having such differences.

I know everyone likes to be "right", and I certainly have done my share of "discussion", and for those who I may have crossed the line sometimes, I certainly apologize. I may not agree with everything someone says or believes, but I can certainly accept their own beliefs and opinions. I would hope that others on here feel the same way as well.

By the way, this is not aimed at any "one" particular person on here. Rather, I have several people that have crossed the line in mind. This is just an added thought.


Are there any real lines anymore, I'm beginning to wonder? It seems like the more detached someone is from reality, the more acceptable they are to the voters. We have become so tribal in politics especially that we have given up on forming a consensus, and trying to move this country forward. That is why in many ways we a stagnating and unable to function. We have attacked the idea that government is a helping partner trying to make life better, and are only left with the idea that big government is totally bad.

I have lived many years, and I have never felt like the country is coming apart, like it seems to be now. If we are The United States, then we better start acting like it. The road to recovery is trying to find a common ground. One party can't block legislation that 70% of the public has said it wants. The only goal is political advantage, not really the hard job of governing, and moving this country forward. The Sun shines on all God's children, just like this country needs to finally live up to the meaning of America. If we no longer belief ourselves in our noble experiment of Democracy, how can we ask others to follow us?

Honestly Lone Ranger, I have no clue what the hell you just said, or how it pertains to my comment... But OK, whatever dude. :? :| Although I can respect you opinions. Have a great day!

Maybe a good place to start is to read the post of the person that you want to respond to so you don't offer advice that doesn't meet their needs. Maybe I in the past might not have given enough information on what I wanted to accomplish but I seemed to get responses that never came close to even what I did post and that's why I always ended up doing my own research and usually chose to ignore some of the replies. For the matter I don't just look here for advice but on other forums as well.


It's that and so much more Danny. It's a matter of a lack of respect for others and their "space" and "personal choices". It's so bad sometimes that you wonder why we even would want to interact with others. I know I came here to gain and share knowledge and experiences. There are those who are so closed minded that they believe what they are doing is the ONLY way of doing something.

I will leave it at this: How does one eat an apple?

Now back to the regular scheduled program :D

I thought we were talking about crossing the line? What I was trying to impart is we don't have the same lines we were brought up with. In the past I feel people had more of a sense of community, self sacrifice, and duty to one's country. Maybe I'm wrong, getting old and longing for something that was an illusion, but I don't feel there is a sense of we anymore, just the culture of me. We could have whipped the pandemic sooner with less loss of life if we would have come together sooner. We have to stop treating the government as a problem, rather than what it's true purpose is making life better for all of us. New cyber security threats show that the one area of the economy might comeback sooner computer security. As a nation we will probably fall short of 70% vaccination by July 4th, but at least we will be a 67% or maybe higher.
