First time Dad and my 15 month old keeps running up the stairs at my in-laws place and they keep encouraging it.

I never do this but I need some objective advice. My wife is 5mo pregnant and my sister is getting married. Wedding was adjusted because of COVID but she set the date knowing I might not be able to attend as I’d have to fly there. Now I’m conflicted because if I attend, I’d have to quarantine for 2 weeks away from my wife and miss a couple DR appts. I’m her only support where we live. Would be stressful for her but I’m getting immense pressure from my parents to attend the wedding. Advice?

With social security potentially running out, why couldn’t it be an option for the govt to put $5k for every baby that is born in a year into an account Invested in a govt share class S&P 500 fund. Historical average is 10%+, which would provide roughly $2.7 million for a baby born today. Eventually, this would eliminate the need for soc sec tax, and would only cost $18 Billion a year instead of several trillion a year being deposited into the trust.

Looking for suggestions. I'm a scotch whisky drinker, pretty much exclusively, apart from a few select Irish bottles. Live in Ireland.

Always seemed overly sweet and syrupy to my palette. But I'm sure there are great choices out there. What would you suggest as quality American whiskies for a scotch fanatic?
