    The Feeling of Freedom after Both Doses of Vaccine

    As I wrote previously, I hope those who elect not to get vaccinated do not contract CV19. It can and does often lead to an horrific death. The current number of confirmed CV19 deaths in the U.S. exceeds 600,000. Those who died would be alive if the virus were cureable.

    Yes, the combination of aging and four spinal disc fusions, has caused all my pants to get too long.

    H.S. Graduation Party Tomorrow

    My nephew's daughter. She was adopted as an infant when my nephew and his wife were both 44-years-old. My nephew's wife had uterine cancer in her twenties and hadn't planned on ever marrying. My nephew is a physician, who met his wife when she was employed at a clinic where he practiced. The...

    Two Days This Week at McDonald's

    The food is absolute crap and expensive. Earlier in the week I took my grandson to McDonald's for lunch. I bought one kid's meal and because I paid with a credit card didn't notice the cost. Today both my grandson and granddaughter begged to go to McDonald's for lunch. I didn't feel like making...

    The Feeling of Freedom after Both Doses of Vaccine

    A very well stated and reasoned post. Fauci is 80 years old and looks lean and healthy. I'd feel better if he had even a hint of a gut. They still do use leeches in some medical applications, particularly in plastic surgery. Leeches secrete peptides and proteins that work to prevent blood...

    Good News With...........

    I spoke with a young friend this morning. I know him from volunteer work that I did where he was a staff supervisor. Before I was a volunteer, my late wife volunteered, starting in 2002. We were invited to his wedding. At the time he was 26-years-old; his bride, "Jack Benny" 39. I didn't really...

    Tuck The Girls In

    Thankfully, not the squash section. My late wife was quite petite, and she passed in 2008, so seeing these rather large globes, live and in-person, was a nice treat. Plus the woman was very pleasant. It's an odd conundrum/dichotomy. I have a real dislike for when older women show too much skin...

    Tuck The Girls In

    My daughter breast fed the 21-month-old during her first six months. I'm sure sometime during that period, the word "tittie" was used, maybe by me.

    Eight More Days of School Day Child Care

    The best laid plans too often, in my life, go awry. Tonight my daughter told me that she's going to a retreat center in California for a week, this Sunday through Saturday. I'll have the almost 5-year-old and the 6.5-year-old from 11:30 am through supper, all next week. It's only two more days...

    The Feeling of Freedom after Both Doses of Vaccine

    I grew up venerating Jonas Salk and Albert Sabin, whose vaccines virtually eradicated polio in the U.S. I do not recall anyone ever politicizing these vaccines, but I remember getting the Salk vaccine by injection at my public elementary school.

    Effects of the Covid shutdown

    Early in the pandemic, I dropped about 15 lbs. but gained it all back. I'm eating very carefully now and doing the intermittent fasting. On Tuesday and Thursday, I restrict myself to 500 calories each day. I eat a huge vegetable salad and a couple of boiled eggs twice a day. The weight is coming...

    Tuck The Girls In

    My life is beyond crazy. Yesterday, when I got to my daughter's house at 10:45 am, awaiting the school bus and arrival of my grandson from Pre-kindergarten at 11:30, I checked the fridge to see what was there to make my grandson's lunch. Usually I make a sandwich at my house and bring it, but I...

    The Feeling of Freedom after Both Doses of Vaccine

    I wish people would understand that this is a world wide issue. Until at least 70% of all humanity is vaccinated against the CV19 virus, the strains will continue to mutate and keep every woman, man, and child in jeopardy. This must be separated from politics.

    Pipestud's website

    As I've previously written, if I die unexpectedly, my daughters will very likely put all my pipes in a box on the driveway: "Your choice, $1.00." Unopened tinned tobacco will likely be offered to a local for a dollar or two a tin; bulk will go in a dumpster. I actually hope that my death is...

    Pipestud's website

    Be sure to read the information on Pipestud's website. He does not take everything. He's very specific about what pipes and tobacco he will take for sale. You cannot just send items without his prior authorization. He has stock capacity limitations. I have been approved to send items but am on a...

    The Feeling of Freedom after Both Doses of Vaccine

    I caught malaria in Vietnam and was treated with hydroxychloroquine. It does not create any immunity; none at all, not even to malaria. It's a treatment, not a preventative Your doctor must have earned his M.D. on-line. I hope you are not exposed to Covid's new strains as without a vaccination...

    Wow, It's Hot!

    St. Paul-Minneapolis, officially 97 F. At the grocery store parking lot, my car says 104 F. Air conditioning is causing some local brownouts.

During the school year, the two older kids school day is 7:00 to 2:00, then an after school program until 4:00. The...
