My second date with Rona.

It didn't go as well as the first.

I have two vaccines and two boosters. The first booster was in December. I tested positive for Covid on Dec. 29th. ...no symptoms but tested positive.

Second booster was in March. I got covid again, probably this weekend. Tested positive with symptoms. I thought I would be ok because I had two boosters. I wasn't.

I probably got the virus on a SEPTA train ride to Philadelphia. The thing is, the train car, in and out, was mostly empty except for the 10 of us in our group. We sat away from each other on the train and we did not go into any enclosed spaces. Five of us tested positive.

So... my suggestions. Resume outdoor dining in restaurants or do takeout. Avoid large indoor gatherings.... parties, meetings, church, concerts and whatever I didn't think of. Work remote if you can.

My symptoms are not severe, slight headache from time to time, muscle aches, coughing. .... Yes I got the "Pax" anti-viral medication. It is helping.

But still. A new wave is spreading and we can expect new variations of pop up.

Be careful.


One thing to get clear about the BIG money funding anti-abortion: for the wealthy,

it ain't about abortion. Abortion is an issue to get the rubes to elect Republicans. Do you really think that the likes of Charles Koch cares one shit about abortion?

The goal is to keep the attention on abortion while their legislators and S.C. rule against tax reform, Anti-O.S.H.A. anti environmental laws and so forth.

Recall when about 30 years ago, O.S.H.A. issued mega fines against Koch industries? One of the first things the present S.C. ruled, was against O.S.H.A. enforcing Covid protection.

Question about the Constitution. Dems want to codify abortion and maybe other things

like contraception, gay marriage and so forth.

The S.C. can rule on if a law of Congress is allowed within the framework of the Constitution.


If abortion was codified, why wouldn't that codification be declared unconstitutional?

For lower gas prices-would you do it?

An answer would be, "Stay At Home Sunday. One day where everyone keeps their car in the garage or on the driveway. One Sunday a month.

The problem is, not enough supply for the demand. So, lower the demand.

Would yo do it?

Anyone know the status of the burning Russian frigate?

Has it been confirmed?

Abortion is not in the Constitution. So it's not allowed?

Where does the Constitution say it isn't allowed?

I was struck by a thread this morning about Kris Kristoferson's Bobby McGee.

"I'd trade all of my tomorrows for one single yesterday."

That one hit home in so many ways. She's been gone for eight years now and I couldn't stop thinking about those lines all day.

It also took me to the people around me now. Today, is tomorrow's yesterday. I want that line of song to guide me to be better to the people in my life.

Absurd temptation to buy shit I don't need.

I puzzled about this, coming home from a drive to pick up my grandson from school.

I want to buy stuff I have no need for.

1. A mirrorless camera. I am a fairly good photographer.... made some money off of it and enjoy it. I have a camera which I paid $2,800 for when it was new. It works good. A mirrorless camera would change nothing about my ability to take photographs. In fact, most of my favorite photos were taken with an iPhone 5.

Yet, I still want a mirrorless. I don't expect to buy one but it is still a temptation. I look a the adverts and wonder...

2. Electric bike. I would have no use for one but I want one. No. I will not get one but I want one.

I try to understand why I want stuff.

Do you get similar urges?

What I don't get.. Why ain't Pootie worried about our "red line?"

Or maybe we ain't got one?
