  1. This is a Los Angeles County Health order not State of California. So it wont be relevant to Disneyland but will cover Universal Studios and Magic Mountain. It could lead the way for the state to pass a similar order but who knows.
  2. @Nick Vermeil coming through BIG TIME!!!! Just received a perfectly packaged, massive haul. Full Spread Shirt 1 Shirt 2 Shirt 3 Front , Shirt 3 Back MAJOR Thanks Nick! Can't wait to crack these open.
  3. You can still bring your own food and water. We bring dinner all the time as well as peanuts. Tickets are a little more than $6. An evening at Dodger Stadium or the Hollywood Bowl is fantastic. Great weather, great views, picnic dinner!
  4. Was at the Angels / Red Sox game today. Main reason I went was to see Ohtani play. Such a fun player to watch. I'm a Dodger fan and go to ~10 games a year. It's just a fun relaxing time to visit with friends.
  5. That is actually a great time to go weather wise. It generally won't be too hot yet. Where to stay really depends on what type of experience you're looking for. Palm Springs is a good hour+ drive to get into the park. There are lots of hotels, resorts, restaurants, golf if that is what you are looking for. If you want something more isolated, natural and relaxed find an AirBnB near Yucca Valley or the town of Joshua Tree. Its on the North side of the park. Lots of places out in the desert with lots of space. At JTNP the Keys Ranch Tour is great if you like history. Buy tickets in advance. Tons of great hikes of various lengths and good rock climbing if you're into that. The Aerial Tram to Mt San Jacinto is great. Lots of hikes you can do at the top. The Living Desert is also great. Pappy & Harriet's is a fun place to get dinner. Particularly if they have live music. Make a reservation well in advance if you plan to go. The Noah Purifoy Outdoor Desert Art Museum is also an off beat experience if you're into that type of thing.
  6. Check with the rental companies. I think you can pick equipment up the night before and only pay 1 day rental if you return it by the end of the day.
  7. It depends on how far you plan to hike. I have done top down (about 15 miles) 5 times. I wouldn't ever consider doing the hike without the shoes or some type of stick. The grip and warmth of the shoes and the balance and exploration of the stick are all essential. If you are planning a few hours of hiking from the bottom up you can get away without renting shoes but it may be less comfortable. I've hike with people who didn't get the shoes and they are always way behind the rest of the group. Like The Man with No Name said, stepping between rocks rather than on top of rocks is key. You will keep your balance a lot easier. Also take your time and don't rush. If you get moving to fast you are bound to slip and hurt yourself.
  8. That may be a lot of ground to cover over that time period. It depends on if Sun - Thur includes your flying days, what time of year you are going, and what you plan to do. You could easily spend 2-3 days just at Zion if you want to. There are plenty of hikes and things to check out. Add Byrce and Cedar Breaks and you can have a real full itinerary without spending all your time in the car. If you don't really plan on hiking or spending time in anyone place you could conceivable go to Arches. I would take HWY 12 through Escalante if you go that route. Lots of cool landscapes to see. It will take longer but be a lot more interesting.
  9. From a distance perspective Trinidad looks right. But you way want to consider staying further north, maybe Crescent City. Then you can use the day driving to Richardson to hit some of the Redwood National Park sites. It will make for a longer day but there are some great hikes. I was there last summer and would recommend these shorter hikes for a day where you're driving to set up camp at Richardson: Lady Bird Johnson Grove - Just north of Orick. Easy walk, wide well maintained trail. Lots of big trees to see Fern Canyon @ Gold Bluffs Beach - It is a rough rode down there and takes a little bit of time, but this was one of the coolest hikes we did. Prairie Creek Visitor Center - There are a web of trails from this visitor center. Great for seeing lots of trees and setting a trail length that fits your schedule
  10. In west coast news.... https://www.micechat.com/279966-breaking-news-disneyland-annual-pass-program-ending/
  11. Azul is a great game that works well for 4 people but can be played by up to 4. Mr Jack is a fun 2 player game but is 2 player only.
  12. It may be too much on the avant garde side but Frank Zappa uses xylophone extensively. "St Alfonzo's Pancake Breakfast" is a great song that features it. Some others: Peter Gabriel "No Self Control" The White Stripes "The Nurse" Tears for Fears "Change"
  13. Article about a patient in Texas that was in one of the trials. https://www.houstonchronicle.com/lifestyle/renew-houston/health/article/plasma-covid-ut-health-texas-cure-expert-doctor-tx-15528307.php?fbclid=IwAR0_AU9iu4Wim49w8n61hzhpj--taGeQovL4Lfj-qHUd5xsRjBUx2VfPBKI Interesting that they were given plasma and (potentially) LL.
  14. The science based articles are always so encouraging and the business based articles so often discouraging.
  15. I read it as OWS didn’t move forward after seeing the information that CYDY sent to them. I may be interpreting that wrong
  16. The thing that isn’t good is that the WSJ has a large reach. People that have followed the story know that Paterson’s relationship with CYDY is rocky. Now more people know that. the Patterson stock comment seems strange. I just don’t really see how that line of question would go that would get that answer. the OWS stuff isn’t good even though it is only accredited to an unnamed source. It hints at the Federal government not thinking of LL as a real answer. the strange thing is this same writer wrote another CYDY hot piece a few weeks ago. Not sure what his agenda is but he clearly has one.
  17. Comments by IncellDx CEO Bruce Patterson last week lifted shares of CytoDyn Inc.PHOTO: SCOTT STRAZZANTE/THE SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE/GETTY IMAGES By Michael Wursthorn Aug. 26, 2020 11:45 am ET The market for small biotechs working on coronavirus treatments is so hot that sometimes all it takes is a whisper to send a stock soaring. So it was with CytoDyn Inc., which climbed more than 20% after a former adviser told television host Dr. Drew Pinksy on Thursday that he thought the company would move forward with a federal-government program aimed at fast-tracking virus treatments. CytoDyn isn’t being considered for the program, known as Operation Warp Speed, according to a senior administration official. Yet in the quick-punch world of retail investing, the video clip of the former adviser, Bruce Patterson, has already gone viral. Investors who closely follow the company shared it on social media and message boards, including Investors Hub, a forum popular with penny-stock traders. Shares of CytoDyn rallied 13% to $3.43 a share on Friday, notching the company’s biggest daily gain in about a month, before rising another 12% on Monday. CytoDyn Shares have plateaued since then, declining a more than 2% over the last two trading sessions. Operation Warp Speed is a federal initiative to accelerate the development and manufacturing of drugs and vaccines for Covid-19, which has claimed more than 175,000 lives in the U.S. Through the program, the government has given funding to companies such as Moderna Inc., Novavax Inc. and Regeneron Pharmaceuticals Inc. The senior administration official said CytoDyn had only completed a preliminary qualification for being included in the initiative. The Vancouver, Wash., company had submitted information through a so-called CoronaWatch, a program run by the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority, or Barda, to assess the viability of drugs and therapeutics that might be effective against Covid-19, the official said. Technical experts reviewed the submission and opted not to proceed further at this time, the official added. The team responsible for reviewing the materials makes clear to companies that submissions are for informational purposes only and don’t lead to funding on their own, the official added. Companies must apply to specific grant programs to receive funding, the official said, which CytoDyn hasn’t done at this time. Dr. Patterson told The Wall Street Journal that he helped arrange an initial exchange of information between CytoDyn and Barda. He hadn’t been involved in further discussions, he said. CytoDyn declined to comment on the exchange or on any communication with Operation Warp Speed. “CytoDyn received an email. I received an email from Operation Warp Speed. So yes they are aware of it,” Dr. Patterson said in the video. “And I think we’ll move forward with them.” The company hired Dr. Patterson as an adviser, in addition to hiring his company, IncellDx, to provide diagnostic services. CytoDyn and Dr. Patterson said his tenure as a consultant ended in May. CytoDyn also no longer uses Dr. Patterson’s company for diagnostic services. An April securities filing disclosed that Dr. Patterson was a CytoDyn shareholder. In the interview with the Journal, Dr. Patterson said he never received paperwork regarding his ownership in CytoDyn. “I’ve gotten little to no paperwork regarding that,” he said. “I don’t think of it as real.” On the question of Dr. Patterson’s share ownership, Arian Colachis, CytoDyn’s general counsel, pointed to the April filing. “The document speaks for itself, and we have no further comment,” she said.

  18. I was able to read the article but can’t access it now to copy. It states that an OWS official said LL is not being considered. CytoDyn submitted info to OWS. They had experts look at it and decided not to move forward. it also states Patterson is no longer a CYDY consultant and they are not using his lab. Additionally Patterson says he never received any info regarding him being granted shares of CYDY stock and he doesn’t consider himself a shareholder. CYDY says the paperwork released in April which shows Patterson as a share holder speaks for itself. this is not a good article for CYDY.
  19. Just got under the threshold on the REFI
  20. Closed today on a REFI in So Cal. 2.875% 30YR no points. I REFIed a year ago and thought that would be the last time I would have the opportunity. I've used the same guy when I bought and both REFIs. He is amazing. Some of the simplest business transactions I have ever had in my life. If anyone is looking to REFI or buy in CA or AZ let me know and I'm happy to pass along his contact info.
  21. He was the Chief Resident of Pathology at Northwestern Memorial Hospital and the Medical Director of Diagnostic Virology at Stanford University Hospitals and Clinics. *per his bio on the incellDx website https://incelldx.com/who-we-are/
