I guess all us vaccinated folks didn't drop dead or become sickened as was being suggested by some on here. :) ;)
That kind of idiocy went both ways to be fair. About a year ago, Reddit was full of soy boys autistically screeching that the red states were going to have death rates of bubonic plague levels because they were full of "anti-science" dumb redne.cks who were too stubborn to get the vax. I think this is more of what they were hoping was going to happen than what they actually thought was going to happen. All the soy boy MDs also predicted Trump wasn't going to survive his case of covid due to him being old and fat. I think they were pretty disappointed when he shook it off like it was a common cold.

Honestly, it's too early to tell. Most probably don't remember it now, but back in.... 97 or there abouts, the military had started mandatory anthrax vaccinations. I was on my way out of the active reserves, outprocessing as it was. To maintain mobility status, I had to have the shot (amongst many others). I didn't get it, and honestly, I wasn't sure I wanted it. Now the big blow up over mandatory coof shots, isn't anything new, as the anthrax shots illustrates. It was the same old story, get the shot, or get discharged on a medical or failture to conform, or some crap like that. (In my case with anthrax, i was out the door with my second honorable discharge anyway)

However....... as it turned out the anthrax vaccination was bad for you in the long term, and had some side effects. To my knowledge the services stopped that vaccination around 2005 or something like that. You talk to some people in veteran circles, and they'll remember it "fondly".

So the current crop of covid shots? We'll see. Give it a few years. Personally, I got the J&J, and a phizer booster. I'm 48, my life is half over anyway. Phuck it. We did NOT however, vaccinate our 8 year old. The long term prospects are much riskier then the short term infection. Give that age group is the least at risk and recovers much quicker then us middle aged fogies, the unknown longterm risk wasn't worth the reward.

Anything is possible, but this I do know. A lot of unvaccinated folks won't get a chance to wait and see because they are no longer with us. A lot of "long covid" victims are living lives of "wait and see" every day, wondering if they will ever improve. In spite of constant frothing by anti-vaxxers and hysterical reporting by the news media about anyone that has a severe reaction to the shot, vaccinations have not produced a mass casualty event.

Lets hope that the current trends continue and this covid thread can die. I'm sure we can all agree with that. :)

with this being said. where is the best place for lunch in the spanish fork?
It's on the border of Spanish and Springville, but I like a place called T-bone. It's a Chinese food restaurant that has a decent "American" menu selection for those that want something else, but their Chinese food is quite good!

Little Acorn was a family staple heading down to Huntington for decades. But the food quality just tanked around 2010. Major disappointment
The place really could use a makeover. With the glut of traffic always going up highway 6 it seems like someone could put some work into the place and turn it into a cash cow. I gave it multiple chances, because it used to always draw me in when I was heading back into town, but it disappointed each and every time.😥

Define "Best"?
My vote is for Little Acorn. Nothing beats a greasy spoon when your coming down from the mountains. I drove through the place so often last year, the guy at the drive in window recognized me a couple weeks ago even though the last time I pulled through was October.

Aside from that, if your looking for asian food, there's the Lucky 5 on main street. (Also a 2 jacks pizza on mian), China Wok near the Big 5, and the recenly open Panda express accross the street from Petco. They always screw up your order though.

Best burger is probably 5 Guys, in that strip mall type of thing down the street from costco, where the kneaders and Costa vida is located.

Mexican your looking at costa vida or cafe reo.

Nope, I totally don't live in Spainish Fork.

I miss it when I had to drive to orem to get anything. Place is a crowded FusterCluck now.

What are everybody's thoughts at this stage? I recently found myself in one of those corners of reddit filled with college brainwash...er...educated Marxists and they act like the covid problem is as widespread and dangerous now as it has ever been and everybody who isn't still living in a mask and getting a booster every other day is a selfish idiot who is trying to kill everybody. They seem to think we should all still be locked down or working from home still and corporations are treating us like human sacrifices to keep the profits rolling in. I don't know how some of these people even function lol.

My double vaxxed and boosted dad just came down with it last week. My wife and I who are raw dogging it through life with no anti-covid secret sauce flowing through our veins were around him and didn't catch chit. Maybe already having had covid is better immunity than the vax? My employer STILL requires biweekly covid tests, so I would know if I caught it from my dad even if I was asymptomatic. Here in another week I will be traveling through some pretty blue country on my way over to Estes Park and on down to Denver and I'm curious to see how many more people I will see still rocking a face diaper. I still see a few in Utah County, but only a very few.
