Covid requirements lifted on return to US

This past week the CDC lifted the Covid testing requirement for passengers returning to the United States from overseas.  The past 20+ months of needed tests have not been awful in my opinion - in fact, it gave me peace of mind to know that passengers were negative prior to long flights.  

The Swiss notification is here: https://ch.usembassy.gov/visas/nonimmigrant-visas/covid-19-travel-to-the-united-states/

I may continue to do this anyway on future trips - the box doesn't take up much space and I'd prefer to know before I fly.  We'll see if availability for the tests changes.

Going Home for Dad

I was lucky to get upgraded on my way back today from SFO to ORD - ever since our trip to Oslo when I was able to get dad and I seats in Business Class, he would always ask whether I was being upgraded on all my flights.  He was so happy on that trip - the ability to lay-flat to sleep, the food with real silverware, and the made to order drinks and ice cream cart...we had quite the time.  

These trips will no longer be the same.

Infocomm 2022

I'm thrilled to be going back to InfoComm 2022 today - it's only a short flight from SFO though I'm looking forward to meeting with vendors and exploring new technologies.  There have been many changes over the past few years and I suspect the floor will be busy as usual.
