more Happy talk....(CNN)A 103-year-old Massachusetts woman who recovered from Covid-19 celebrated with a favorite drink -- a cold beer, her family told CNN.

When Jennie Stejna tested positive for coronavirus in late April, her family began preparing for the worst, granddaughter Shelley Gunn said.

At one point, her family was told that Stejna had stopped eating and drinking and might not make it through the night. They called her for one last goodbye, Gunn said.

When Gunn's husband, a Navy retiree, asked Stejna if she was ready to pass away, she responded "Hel l yeah," according to the family.

Via Yahoo News, In Italy: A second doctor from northern Italy told the national ANSA news agency that he was also seeing the coronavirus weaken.

"The strength the virus had two months ago is not the same strength it has today," said Matteo Bassetti, head of the infectious diseases clinic at the San Martino hospital in the city of Genoa.

"It is clear that today the COVID-19 disease is different."

Moardeeb has the same right to freedom of expression as you do. Have you read Dune?


Now now GPC. Everyone has a right to comic relief and denying dweeb’s ability to post comments, even if they aren’t an original thought, suffocates the fun we all have at dweebs expense.
