I wrote quite a bit more. Perhaps there is a limit to the size of a text.
Your thoughts and observations are well thought out and clearly presented, but don't be duped by the pharmaceutical companies who put out claims that their products relieve you from the symptoms of colds and flu.
Flu is a killer, it's not a minor ailment, the Spanish flu pandemic of 1918 claimed 50 million lives. How influenza became flu and then somehow relegated to nothing more than a heavy cold is testimony of clever advertising.
You hit the nail right on the head when you said:
The common cold is a corona virus and that's been with us forever and a day, yet there is still no know cure or vaccine. The problem that chemists have with a vaccine is that, covid 19, like all corona virus' mutates.
Seniors in the UK are always asked by their doctor if they have had their flu jab, but I'm somewhat sceptical of that. A vaccine comprises of dead virus cells, it makes you feel unwell but the idea is that your body will develop antibodies to the virus. That works with previously known killer diseases, but with a Corona Virus the fact that it mutates means science is always playing catch up.
A bump to check in on everyone again.........
Anyone know how @Michael A is doing? Looks like he hasn't logged in since before the derecho blew through last Monday. Sounds like Iowa got the worst of it with hurricane level winds.
Just got my internet connection back about a half hour ago. So I may have to post a hat picture tomorrow, if the connection still works. Ha ha. had a bit of a blow here for sure, worse 20 miles north.
Good to see you posting Michael. We were wondering how the derecho affected you.
Good to be back. Not much damage for me, a few medium branches down in the yard and part of the fence. Blew down a huge ash tree across the street and that crushed a small shed. Down the block it broke off a big tree that fell across the 17000 volt power lines and caught on fire. That then sagged down and toasted the internet line to me, which was further down the same poles. Cedar Rapids really got blasted.
Has anyone seen @GHT lately? I miss seeing his vintage styles.
What a generous compliment. I have actually been working. Normally I do just two shifts a week, but the fellow that I job share with has some issues, I should say, it's his wife who has some anxiety problems. He's been off work to support her.
What a thoughtful comment, thank you.
Good to hear from you. I really do enjoy your style and look forward your posts. Glad that things are well.
Mark @MHatman hasn’t been on since August 8. I sent him a hat a month ago, we had messaged back and forth a bit but he hasn’t returned my last message. Anyone heard from him?
Oh things are well alright. Did I ever mention that we have a flatulent cat? She might be in the garden, scraping a hole to do the necessary, it's easy to tell if she's taking a leak or doing something more ambitious. If it's the latter you will hear: Fart, Fart, I've heard her do it but my missus always tells me when Lulu's 'been.' It's what my missus says afterwards that cracks me up. "That cat farts so loud," she will say, "I hope the neighbours don't think it's me."
Scott @Cornshucker77 got caught looking in July but hasn't posted since Dec. Always appreciated Scott's laidback style. Hope he is healthy & well.
Joe (@Blare) had mentioned recently conversing with him about the date on a Strat, but I don't know when that convo occurred.
Anybody heard from Mike (@Redfokker)? He was having some back issues, but had been checking in every now and then.
Also haven't heard from @Wyldkarma in a bit either.
I was seeing Mike on FB more often than here on the FL. I deleted my FB account, though, so I haven't been on there in a week.
I'm fine Jack just haven't been involved in the social media for a while. Thanks for your concern. I'll try to checkin once in awhile.
Off the coronavirus topic for a moment; a shout out to any loungers in or near the path of the hurricane. Look after yourselves - stay safe.
I was looking through the Tatton Baird thread and realized I hadn’t seen Ken @Wyldkarma around recently. Has anyone heard from him lately? I like his style and his backyard photos are great. Hoping he’s alright.
