Can you make the trip sac? Is Poland OK with Covid-19 restrictions or do you have family there to attend to the details?

My mother is. We're not sure if it will be feasible for me to go. There currently is a mandatory 14 day quarantine for anyone(citizen or not) upon arrival to the country. We are looking into it.

Why would you fake fans have the Giants home station.you did see RADIO right?No way was that the 62 WS which I am guessing your guys sarcastic remarks are Implying,

sac hope you get to make the trip ut you miss alot of work,do not know your Funeral leave,mine is only 3 days so if I was working it would be a hit on 14 days plus do you have to stay in when you come home?But you should get disablity as it's a medical thing,maybe.

Hope it works for you the way you want.

Poland is a member of the EU. Are they even allowing any U.S. Americans in? Europe is very serious about this.

The borders are tight. The mandatory quarantine is strictly managed. Once in the country, you have to remain inside of the household/hotel room, no visitors, you can't leave, and all food/goods are delivered. Police make visits 3 times a day, if you're not there you get fined. If you break any of the rules you get fined heavily.

Once in the country, getting out is even more difficult(from what I'm hearing). In my mother's case, she has a house in Poland. She's retired. And has a few friends and family there. An extended stay for her wouldn't be a big deal. For me, I'd run into some problems.

Today, the Wake, Mass and lunch in went beautifully. I couldn't of dreamed of a better service. I feel like we sent off my father properly. He was a highly respected musician in Poland and here in Chicago. When we carried his casket out of the Church to Chopin's "funeral march", everyone gave him a standing ovation. That's when it hit me hard, but I've never been prouder of anything in my entire life till that moment.

That’s awesome Sac.  I remember my fathers funeral and thinking I had no idea he had this many friends.  People couldn’t even get in the door

 

RIP

Key you need to change your Calif.name,fruity is no longer in the ballpark,stupid or nuts maybe selfish comes to mind,so not sure what you can make out of that but the things I see now on the news has me just baffled,people refuse to wear mask and when someone will say something the person with no mask goes nuts and starts screaming at everyone and just ready to fight everyone that is there.The protest because people are being asked to stay at home and the area's where the virus is worse are the people doing the driving all over Calif. to the areas that are on the coast so now these travelers do not wear mask or do the distance thing,Santa Cruz which is suppose to be the place where all the Hippies from the 60s in SF are supposed to be at now had a group walk in from who knows where and knocked over the plexiglass the eatery had put up and when a worker from Philipines said something the group started yelling racial slurs at the guy which lead to a violet fight.

Now a week after the fight they fire the guy that worked there for being one of the first involved in fight which really was a bad idea,10 other workers quit and a bunch of customers also complained to Mgn.about how he should not have been fired and now the place is closed again but reason for closing was not given.

So now from what Paul Rand said yesterday the reason we do not have baseball is because the Good Doctor who seems to be the only one giving us info about the Virus,is also the reason we do not have sports and our Kids are not in school is all the fault of a Doctor that works on Germs,guess that means Trump was never involved in the Virus or helping to split the Country apart with his Fake NEWS.And Rand last time I heard about him was when his neighbor was kicking his azz.new_laugh_crynew_laugh_cry

Fading the Cubs as favorites is going to be a cash cow this season.

A Yankee game is almost always going to draw over money, no matter who the starters are, even these two guys. Gotta like those picks if the line holds up.

Sac, was your dad's funeral streamed or did they just send pictures really fast? You seem to be so knowledgeable about it it almost seems like you were there. Anyway, I'm glad your mom could be there and had plenty of support.

R.I.P. peace

JEG: I will fall back on a very old line about California (yeah, another one). Q: What do California and a granola bar have in common? A: If you throw out the fruits and nuts all you have left are the flakes". Is that any better?

The burial hasn't happened yet Key. Still waiting for the paperwork to filter. He hasn't taken the flight yet to Poland, but all the preparation is ready once he gets there.

I was referring to the the Wake and Mass which we held here.

You know the way these people are acting I do not think this works anymore,they are way past the flakes and into just plain stupid,like say someone that was smart enough to buy Amazon in 97,but when they doubled their money sold it for 10,000 but if they would of let it ride that same 5,000 would be worth 2 mill. now and they would be set for life.an_brickan_arsed.

So are we playing sports soon or not,baseball had a bunch of cases didn't they,31 I believe I heard plus Jimmy Johnson in Nascar or Indy Cars,Guess it is up to Newson what happens in Calif.
