    fifth vaccine shot of the year

    Yes, the 1st shooting was esp. disturbing; other than that we seem to be chugging along ok!

    fifth vaccine shot of the year

    Yep, just thrilling! Unusually, I even had a slight reaction to the shot last night, but that was gone this morning.

    First TAD Outbreak in Years

    Is Aged Tobacco Mostly Mystique?

    I think the rule simply is 'aging tobacco changes it.' Whether or not that change is good or not is up the smoker. Toppings mellow or disappear, Latakia and Orientals certainly evolve but not sure how to characterize them; VA and Perique mellow and sweeten. Rough edges may smooth out. I...

    What Are You Reading?

    'Switcheroo' by Aaron Elkins. Somehow I missed this 2016 (and currently last) entry in the series. I've been a fan since the 2nd entry ('The Dark Place'). This is about the weakest entry of the series; perhaps why he hasn't written more. If you know the old tv series named after the main...
