SMS must have left US during the Carter administration - maybe he's hoping for a rerun?

Nope.

Actually if I was hoping for a rerun, I'd go back in a minute. I came here in the 2nd year of the Reagan Administration. I was poached by Oceaneering International to come here on a 12 month contract that ultimately lasted 8 years. During which time there were some rather big changes in my single lifestyle when I arrived.

HK taking the lead... 8-)

Hong Kong to reduce quarantine for fully vaccinated residents

"Hong Kong will shorten hotel quarantine to seven days for fully vaccinated residents travelling from most places, as well as non-residents inoculated against Covid-19, in its most significant move yet to ease one of the strictest border curbs in the world."

Come on Singapore, get with the programme!!

Wow, you really ended up overstaying your 8 years didn’t you?

Makes no difference actually, since the ban only restricts flights from the UK.
