I've not bought much since lockdown, apart from essentials and a couple of new tops online.  My husband however has decided to learn to play the guitar! So he's bought all the equipment and is constantly on YouTube learning.

That's pretty cool!

In case you haven't seen, they announced the new North American tour dates!  https://www.backstreetboys.com/news/299193  My three are the same weekend as originally scheduled, just a year later, which I couldn't be happier about!  I was hoping they'd stay in the summer, even if it means waiting longer, so I wouldn't have to worry about missing work or being super tired traveling to and from shows on school nights, since they're all about a 3 hour drive from where I live.  Plus, Rose was planning to fly out to go to three in a row with me, and now she still can!  I hope the new dates work for everyone else too.

Mine will be in July now instead of September. Hopefully it’ll work.

I hope so!  At least you don't have to wait as long as if it was September of next year.  I like that they're starting in early June instead of July.

That's great news that they were able to reschedule and the dates are all suitable for you Smiley

I had an email yesterday to say I'll be getting a refund for Phantom of the Opera as it's been cancelled Sad  The show is not until December! But I suppose the tour of it starts way before then, so they have to cancel the whole thing.  Disappointing for everyone though.

Oh no, that is disappointing!  This whole year has been one disappointment after another.

Seems the rest of the UK are easing restrictions a lot more than they are here.  It was announced today that from Monday we can meet up with one other household outside, but still can't travel anywhere, and no other shops are opening yet.  We are way behind England who can drive wherever they want in England. 

How is the lockdown easing going where you live?

We entered "Phase 3" of my state's reopening plan as of today, which means restaurants are open for outdoor-only seating, many stores and attractions like zoos are re-opening at limited capacity with masks required, and gatherings of up to 10 people are allowed.  If things go well and we don't see a spike in new cases, we can move to the next phase at the end of June, which would allow schools to reopen in August... but they warned us that we could also go back to "Phase 2" if things worsen.  So we'll see.  There are still people complaining about having to wear masks and threatening to travel to neighboring states with fewer restrictions - like Missouri, which made the news last weekend for all the people partying at Lake of the Ozarks, completely ignoring the fact that we're in the midst of a pandemic.  I'm curious to see what their cases look like in the next two weeks.

It doesn't seem fair that Wales is so far behind the other parts of the UK when you have fewer cases, Steph.  It seems like it's still a lot stricter over there than it is here, and my state is one of the stricter ones because of the high number of cases in the Chicago area.  But now that school's out for the summer and my concerts have been rescheduled, I'm okay with us being behind so we can watch what happens in the other areas that have already reopened and hopefully not make the same mistakes.  And if there aren't big spikes in places that reopened early, great!  That would be a good sign.

Rose, I saw a commercial for Vegas tourism last night, advertising a different but more intimate Vegas experience.  I took that as a good sign too.

Yeah Vegas' new focus is to try and cox people back but make them feel safe.

Phase 2 just began today but protests sparked so that might hurt the new phase since I have a feeling cases might spike as a result. So far, we're still doing good. Testing went up so our numbers did too but not an extreme amount. The crown prince of Abu Dahbi had to donate tests cause we couldn't get them from Trump lol.

Trump wouldn't supply tests? That is awful.

We have our own idiot in charge of the UK though

It figures, just when retailers start to open back up, everything is closing early because of all the rioting and looting going on.  I support the protests, but I hate to hear about more violence and vandalism... and also hate how those acts are being blamed on the Black Lives Matter movement when the actual protests against police brutality have been mostly peaceful and lawful.

It did make me laugh a little to see a report in our local news this morning that the local zoo was broken into last night, and someone released two donkeys, then returned them safely.  Of all the random things to do - free the donkeys? LOL WTF?  Glad no animals were harmed.

My favorite looting report was the woman who stole a whole cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory and was walking down the street with it. I guess she’s my evil spirit animal lol
