The best thing for me was not actually being alone by way of phone calls, texts, FaceTime. Other than that, the fam dropped off easy to make meals, lots of liquids to stay hydrated, pain relievers and a new soft throw blanket. 🥰

Black tie wedding planned for fall ‘21. Two questions for you classy folk: 1) I only have 1 real (non apple) watch 2020 JLC Master Control - but it is silver with light brown band (I always wear brown dress shoes). Is it too uncouth to wear it with black shoes / black tux? What about a navy tux (still prob have to do black shoes tho). 2) As you guys climb the latter, are there really ever occasions (COVID notwithstanding) where a tux is warranted? Debating buy vs. rent. Thanks!!

Hi! I’m not sure if this is the right question but I’d like to be fitter. I’m 230lb and 5’8 so it’s really bad. Because of covid I haven’t gone to the gym, I have 2 weights at home. Any recommendations on workouts from home? Running or jogging hurts like hell so I’ve been trying to walk at least 5 miles per day, some push-ups and sit-ups. I have watched a few videos online as well. Thank you guys

I got sick with what I at first thought was stomach bug last Sunday (vomiting, fatigue, then crazy chills and body aches). Lasted 1 day. My nose was also a bit congested, so went to get a pcr on Monday and got a positive result. Tested again at 2 diff places on Wed - 2 negatives. All pcr. Had no symptoms since Sunday. Has anyone had something similar happen to them? Was it just false positive (everyone’s been saying that almost never happens), or just super mild case of Covid?
