    "What is Canada doing right?"

    if it were only that easy..... long story short, im stuck in new mexico until my step daughter is old enough to say she wants to move to Canada. upside is it should only be a few years.

    "What is Canada doing right?"

    and you know what... it matters a fuck load for me. it is a daily comparison of where i am, to where i want to be. and where i want to be is doing so much better than where i am.

    "What is Canada doing right?"

    nah, you are right, my watching the numbers on https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/#countries for both here in new mexico and in canada over the last six months are meaningless. last week, new mexico hit a point where it had over twice the number of active cases as all of canada. its a bit better now.

    "What is Canada doing right?"

    you know what, i think you missed the whole point of my post. what i am saying is that this shitty little state of 2 million people, a year in, still cant social distance or wear a fucking mask on their stupid fucking faces well enough to get the number of active cases lower than my home country of almost 38 million people. and its been that way for a very long time. thank you.

    Changing from Euro 220 wiring to US 110

    i just finished a project in Rhode Island that employed a heap of non americans. every one brought their own tools. some of the shop infrastructure was non american. guys would burn out the motors in sanders, grinders and vacuums and we had on going failures with ovens and heaters because of that small change.

    an overlooked issue is that while a transformer will easily change the voltage, it does sfa for the hertz.

    Wanda vision is ok. Spent yesterday in a vegetative coma on the couch. The wife put Netflix's 'firefly lane' on. Wasn't horrible.

    "What is Canada doing right?"

    i like to compare where i am to where i want to be........ new mexico has 1/3 the population of the greater toronto area, in 1/3 the area of ontario and as of yesterday new mexico has 46 946 active cases compared to 31 357 for all of canada. canada would rank as the 30th state, just ahead of maine. as far as total deaths go, canada would rank as the 8th worst state just behind illinois. we can do better.
