HiGene....

Here it's a shot race between the VA and our local Wegmans Sooper market.

The VA won last Season for my flu shot mainly 'cuz I was already there for an appointment.
Normally it would be the stupid market that wins.
Actually it's better there cause Sandra and I can get ours at the same time, and we don't have to ask each other, "Did we get our flu shots this year?", one of us is bound to remember.

So far 2021 has been kind of a bust.
Big snowstorm started the month off.
Snowblower took a dump the same day, along with the garage door.
Next day the toaster burnt out, the bottom oven in the new stove poofed, and Lawn Santa got buried by the plow.
My hair is as long as it was in the early 70's with no remedy in sight.
The Bills are doing great, but nobody's allowed in the Stadium. It was much more fun in the 90's, maybe no covid and 40yrs younger would help.

Other than that everything's pretty good, well everything except Washington DC,
I guess it's not so good there!

Humor!

Thank our good GOD for the humor on this thread! You guys are keeping me sane, at least I think I am still sane. May be differences of opinion on that...

Very glad to hear that some states are beginning to roll out their vaccination programs to the 65 and older.

CA is having a rough time. We have the most doses of any state but have only 27% distributed. Gov announced Wed. general distribution to 65 and older. There has not been any general announcement about where or when we can sign up for shots. They haven't thought this through. Counties are saying there is a slow rollout, ranging from insufficient doses to not enough healthcare workers. Ever wonder what they would do during a real emergency? Like a pandemic?

Doctor living next door to us got his shot about two weeks ago and complained about the pain. He is considering not taking the second shot. Not sure about the wisdom in that.

County Health Depts. here have no clue what to do. The bats in our area will get shots before we will. What a mess.

It is two days and several hours since we got our first shots. Barb had some achiness first evening and we both had a little swelling in our arms. She only had a little irritation at the injection site the next morning; I had a little more. Today, she has no pain and I have some very minor irritation. Everyone is different. The aches, swelling and sometimes a low fever means the vaccine is working. We had more swelling from flu shots last September, but that shot had .7 ml. fluid and the Moderna vaccine has only .5 ml. Seems like not much different, but the flu shot felt like a flood inside my arm. My PhD immunologist neighbor says various parts of the immune system start working to get ready to produce antibodies pretty fast, but until you get the second shot, things are still getting ready. Immunity happens about 2 weeks after shot 2. That's what I have read too. Our county is doing a very good job and could be giving more shots if the feds would distribute more to Colorado. Colorado is ahead of most states in administering vaccine. Mesa Co. ordered 6,000 shots last week and got only 1,000. We signed up immediately when the age was lowered to 70 and so got into the first group of seniors this week. Colorado will go to age 65 when we get more vaccine. I've checked all this with the County Health Dep't Director. He's doing a good job, but neighboring agricultural counties don't have the resources and money to help hasn't arrived yet. Given the magnitude of the problem of administering millions of doses twice, I expected things would be difficult. Lots of health departments are looking for volunteers (I publish the contact email for our county every chance I get), but they haven't been too successful, partly because it is hard to get qualified people for injecting vaccine like nurses and some lab workers. I'll have a column Sunday in the local paper about what the shot was like, then a get 4 weeks off to work on my shower project.

Wann'a get cheered up....Watch the America's Cup Sailboat races today on NBCSN.
I was really pissed at them when I first started watching yesterday, beaches packed, no masks, spectator boats loaded with reveling peep's, 'merican flags everywhere.
WTF are they thinking?
Then the first commentary started....It's in New Zealand Dumby, the Covid left last year.

BTW...the boats are super Kool. Not like I remember racing in Uncle Harolds "Lightning" & "Raven" class boats back in the day.
These things are going 30knots in 10mph winds. 😲

I agree! Grew up racing Hobie’s on Siesta Key. I’ve owned Hunter 33 and Morgan 41 OI. Just sold my Hunter 33e a few years ago here in GA. These races and boats are not like Ted Turners 1977 Courageous win. The technology & speed are crazy!!! A definite watch even for non sailors.

Did quite a bit of cruising in the San Juan Islands. Lots of places to investigate. But when I started to notice my balance was suffering and couldn't work the foredeck properly sold the boat.

Those were the days when I read everything Tristan Jones wrote beginning with the Incredible Voyage, until I figured our that a lot of the voyaging was in his vivid imagination. Entertaining none the less. I believe he started a sailing school in Ventura CA where he taught sailing to the physically handy capped. He had by then lost both of his legs to diabetes and in a wheel chair would teach sailing on board a catamaran christened the "Outward Leg". That had to be tough. Crusty ole guy.

Surprising -- with his good sense of humor -- that he didn't name the boat "The Outward Legs" . . .

Sail safe . . . and . . .

Apparently he was a seaman aboard the HMS HOOD in WWII during the engagement of the Bismarck pocket battleship.

Back to emergency calls

For those who have Apple iPhones (and want to use Siri for emergencies), you do not need to do so. Simply hold the right side button and the left side button at the same time. A screen pops up that offers four options: 1. Power off, 2. Medical ID, 3. Emergency SOS, and 4. Cancel. Siri is nice, but you don’t need her to call 911.

You can also set up an "SOS" contact list which the phone will call -- with simple push operations like the above -- including the local PD and Ambulance, in case you can't see -- or operate -- the screen.

It works great . . . don't ask . . .

Still breathin' . . .
