    Late in August 2021 I got Covid-19 despite having been fully vaccinated. After an appropriate period of self-isolation I went back to my doctor, took a PCR test, and tested negative. I had my doctor write up a letter on his official letterhead...

    I had an iPhone S for more than 15 years, I purchased the phone at a T-Mobile shop when there were no monthly plan and for years my service was a "pay as you go" plan. It made my life very simple when I lived or traveled to France and Spain, I...
