The nurse said your not wearing any green.  I said my wife is visiting her mother, taking her to the doctor, don't figure I'll get pinched.  She said, here's a little pinch and poked me.  The other nurses laughed.  Barely felt it.

Unreal.  These varying "public health" standards would be laughable if the virus weren't so deadly.  Friends of the Alcalde of Manaus?

Grocery workers in Texas still don't qualify?  It reminds me of the grocery worker here in Colorado who got the vaccine the same day I did this month, on March 5th -- her first day of eligibility.  I was truly surprised to learn that she had to wait so long to get vaccinated.

Received my first Pfizer Covid vaccination shot yesterday.

A less than great report I'm afraid.

No side effects for several hours into the evening except my tinnitus increasing 50% and feeling more drained than usual, however I often feel that way so not sure if it was my imagination?

Later though about 10PM and since then my upper arm is hurting, especially right at the injection point. Just touching it hurts much worse than I had heard others say it did for them. Deep soreness pain, even without any contact with anything.

Can't lay on that side.  

Don't want to be too negative ( no breathing problems at all and no fever or chills )  but I have not slept one second all night. My upper and lower insides feel tense, agitated, stressed, kind of sick feeling, especially my stomach and intestinal tract. Constant loud growls, rumbling, stress and again slight nausea in that area.

Is this a Covid vaccination side effect? I had been feeling quite well in this regards until today. My guess is that it probably is?

I am sure about the tinnitus side effect however.

I noticed just 3 or 4 hours after my shot that the tinnitus I already have in my left ear increased in loudness 50%. Still this loud at 4:05 AM this morning. Not my imagination.

I am obviously somewhat anxious about these post shot side effect symptoms.

The arm pain is expected and will fade I am sure.

Hoping the other physical stresses somehow dissipate throughout the day today as well. We'll see.

Wish I could say I felt no different after the shot than before. Just can't though.

"Texans would willingly go without heat or electricity for days rather than give the federal government any more power...".

Not all of us Rick.  Bet it's not in the 30's to 40's in your house with no light in the dark or water for day's.

Rick Perry says Texans would rather go without electricity than give the federal government more power over them (msn.com)

I guess freezing to death at home does prevent the spread of covid, and the number of deaths reported from it.

These people can no longer say screw Rick Perry.

Another shooting with multiple victims?  Virginia Beach.

Seems like all across this country daily life is more and more becoming like a violent video game.

Maybe viewing and playing these thousands of times, viewing decades of violent movies and listening to violence themed rap music has numbed the minds of millions of newer generations to it all?

Younger adults ( even teenagers ) getting and carrying guns like it's normal?

In our most important areas, our entire society is massively fractured, misguided and confused and desperately needs a healthier, kinder and more hopeful common bond goal focus.

Young people today are in a hurricane of conflicting social, cultural, economic and morality confusion.

What's right? What's wrong? What's good or bad? What's important? What should we all be aiming for?

Our ethnic make up has changed so much in the last 30 years, English isn't the main language in many major American population areas anymore.

Young people in America today have seemingly a thousand different conflicting, confusing, and constantly changing stressful challenges and pressures to face just as they're facing entering the world on their own. Certainly different than my "Baby Boomer" generation.

Economic, social and gender correctness, ethnic, cultural and language diversity, political, religious, relationship and parenting demands, crime, violence, housing cost explosion madness, loss of jobs, never ending infux of millions of illegal immigrants which only adds to the ever growing financial stresses of cities, counties and states regards their societal need providing budgets.

And now with this unbelievably traumatic virus madness?

I say we are in an unprecedented national public health crisis way more stressful and damaging than at any time since WW II. And even that event didn't fracture us and traumatize us and especially our young people like what we are experiencing now.

I believe this increasing multiple victim gun violence is a by-product of societal confusion, division, fracturing, stress and trauma.

My wife gets her second shot tomorrow.  Mine in two weeks.  Two weeks later I can go into a crowded restaurant mask less?  Don't know if I'll ever feel the same about face to face conversation with strangers.

Ditto.  I'll be two weeks out from my second Pfizer shot on Friday, but I'm still wary about interacting with the public without a mask, especially given the risk of COVID variants and a "fourth wave."  I do need a haircut, though.  Haven't gone to the hair salon for over a year now.

David Brooks published a thoughtful piece on this subject in last week's NYT.

Clever crooks with hi-tech skills:

 

 

 

 1.  LONG TERM   PARKING 

Some people left their car in the long-term parking at San Jose while away, and someone broke into the car.   Using the information on the car’s registration in the glove compartment, they drove the car to the people’s   home in Pebble Beach and robbed it.  So, I guess if we are going to leave the car in long-term parking, we should NOT leave the registration/insurance cards in it, nor your remote garage door opener. This gives us something to think about with all our new electronic technology.  
 
 

2.  GPS:  
 

Someone had their car broken into while they were at a football game. Their car was parked on the green   which was adjacent to the football stadium and specially allotted to football fans. Things stolen from the car included a garage door remote control, some money and a GPS which had been prominently mounted on   the dashboard. When the victims got home, they found that their house had been ransacked and just about   everything worth anything had been stolen. The thieves had used the GPS to guide them to the house.  They   then used the garage remote control to open the garage door and gain entry to the house. The thieves knew   the owners were at the football game, they knew what time the game was scheduled to finish and so they knew how much time they had to clean out the house. It would appear that they had brought a truck to empty   the house of its contents. Something to consider if you have a GPS - don't put your home address in it.  Put   a nearby address (like a store or gas station) so you can still find your way home if you need to, but no one   else would know where you live if your GPS were stolen.  
 

3.  CELL PHONES:  
 

I never thought of this! This lady has now changed her habit of how she lists her names on her cell phone   after her handbag was stolen. Her handbag, which contained her cell phone, credit card, wallet, etc., was   stolen. Twenty minutes later when she called her hubby, from a pay phone telling him what had happened, hubby says, "I received your text asking about our Pin number and I’ve replied a little while ago." When they rushed down to the bank, the bank staff told them all the money was already withdrawn. The thief had actually   used the stolen cell phone to text” hubby" in the contact list and got hold of the pin number. Within 20 minutes   he had withdrawn all the money from their bank account.  
 

Moral lesson:  
a. Do not disclose the relationship between you and the people in your contact list. Avoid using names like   Home, Honey, Hubby, Sweetheart, Dad, Mom, etc.
b. And very importantly, when sensitive info is being asked through texts, CONFIRM by calling back.
c. Also, when you're being texted by friends or family to meet them somewhere, be sure to call back to
   confirm  that the message came from them. If you don't reach them, be very careful about going places to meet "family  and friends" who text you.  
 

4.  PURSE IN THE GROCERY   CART SCAM:
A lady went grocery-shopping at a local mall and left her purse sitting in the children's seat of the cart while she  reached something off a shelf/ Wait till you read the WHOLE story! Her wallet was stolen, and she reported it  to the store personnel. After returning home, she received a phone call from the Mall Security
to say that they
   had her wallet and that although there was no money in it, it did still hold her personal papers. She immediately   went to pick up her wallet, only to be told by Mall Security that they had not called her. By the time she returned   home again, her house had been broken into and burglarized. The thieves knew that by calling and saying they   were Mall Security, they could lure her out of her house long enough for them to burglarize it.
