    Favorite snacks?

    What are some of your favorite snacks. I will admit that this summer I have become totally addicted to frozen grapes. I'm going to hate when they are no longer in season. Plus I have fallen in love with watermelon and cantaloupe sprinkled with Tajin. I LOVE it. It has been a good fruit summer so far.

    I would assume you could do these with the little cuties as well.

    Man I LOVE popcorn. I wish I could eat it. One of the joys in my life that I truly miss.

    Another thing for me is frozen raspberries. Put a milk chocolate chip into the center of each raspberry and then freeze.

    Requiring a COVID-19 Vaccine (shot/s)

    I must have having worked there 10 years.

    Requiring a COVID-19 Vaccine (shot/s)

    It is HIPAA not HIPPA. Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act

    Requiring a COVID-19 Vaccine (shot/s)

    Again...I don't know how I can make it any clearer. Please read my above post. An employer or school requiring proof of vaccinations does not violate hipaa laws.

    Requiring a COVID-19 Vaccine (shot/s)

    Then a few paragraphs below I found the following: In other words HIPPA Rules do include disclosure of immunization records to schools. You appear to be correct - every school in the country has broken the law. I am somewhat surprised that no one has figured this out yet. Note that businesses cannot access personal records for employment and I think the airlines have a problem as well. HIPPA was initially passed to protect those that had the AID virus - which BTW was at the time listed as a pandemic. It looks like when the law was made that there was not a lot of foresight. The Traveler No they do not apply to schools. Schools have not been breaking any laws regarding requiring proof of vaccinations. According to the Hipaa laws: Vaccination information is classed as PHI and is covered by the HIPAA Rules. However, HIPAA only applies to HIPAA-covered entities – healthcare providers, health plans, and healthcare clearinghouses – and their business associates. If an employer asks an employee to provide proof that they have been vaccinated in order to allow that individual to work without wearing a facemask, that is not a HIPAA violation as HIPAA does not apply to most employers. Hipaa only applies to healthcare facilities not being allowed to release information. However businesses and schools can require proof of vaccines. As well as traveling to specific countries, military service, requiring tetanus shots for some professions and of course our missionaries are required to have certain immunizations and must provide proof. I worked for a health insurance company for 10 years. Knowledge of Hipaa laws was something we had to pass tests on as part of our employment to ensure we weren't breaking any laws.

    Do you peel them first before freezing?

    That's too funny. I almost said I was a nonconformist.

    Vaccinations do not fall under HIPAA laws.

    Summer plans?

    Okay so what's on your summer plans? What have you done? What do you have plans to do? In a few days I'm driving to Atlanta to watch the San Diego Padres beat the Atlanta Braves. The first full week in August I'm flying to Las Vegas for a week long convention. I'm really excited about this one. 3 private concerts. Dan + Shay, OneRepublic and Pitbull. In September (I realize it's not summer) my daughter is coming out for a week. I haven't seen her in 2 years due to us moving to Texas and then of course COVID. So excited for this.

    Anchors Aweigh!

    Gotcha. I was just clarifying that it also refers to the Army too.

    Anchors Aweigh!

    A colloquialism for infantrymen in the Army and Marine Corps, grunts are the military's door kickers and trigger pullers, in short, they're the pointy end of the spear. By contrast, the term POG — person other than grunt — refers to non-infantry personnel.

    No offense at all. I lived the majority of my life around the military so it's something I knew from childhood.

    Grunt refers to Army and Marines.

    https://www.uso.org/stories/2910-what-separates-the-marines-from-the-other-branches This explains more about Marines. It's where I got my quote from.

    It's Navy Seals. Not Marine Seals. Well I guess marine seals would be the mammal type you see in the ocean.

    Anchors Aweigh!

    The Marine Corps is the only branch that is independent but serves as part of another branch. Originally, the branch was founded as the Continental Marines in 1775, as a separate entity from the Navy. Then, in 1834, President Andrew Jackson expressed that he wanted the Marines to be part of the Army. However, the then-Marine Corps commandant, Archibald Henderson, had proven the branch’s effectiveness on sea, in addition to land, persuading Congress to put the Marines in the Department of the Navy. The Navy and Marine Corps have been considered “sister services” ever since.

    Yes they are.

    The Marines always conveniently forget that they are a branch of the Navy.
