Please get your updated booster

I waited too long to schedule it for myself and my husband. I found appointments in late December and January. Our local pharmacy is scheduling vaccines once an hour instead of 3x an hour.

Don't wait to schedule. Don't procrastinate.

Great Salt Lick Auction returns to Baker city

https://www.oregonlive.com/living/2022/10/great-salt-lick-auction-turns-livestocks-leftovers-into-beloved-baker-city-event.html


For the first time in two years the auction returned to Baker city. Thought it was a happy story in troubling tines showing people can set aside politics to raise money for a good cause.

Union walkout at Baldwin's movie before shooting

https://www.latimes.com/entertainment-arts/business/story/2021-10-22/alec-baldwin-rust-camera-crew-walked-off-set

"Safety protocols standard in the industry, including gun inspections, were not strictly followed on the “Rust” set near Santa Fe, the sources said. They said at least one of the camera operators complained last weekend to a production manager about gun safety on the set"

I see little discussion of the fact that union members walked off for safety concerns. No union propmasters on-site. Three previous accidental discharges.

Nobody wants to say that hiring scabs can cost lives. Ignoring worker's concerns costs lives.

Sign up for ADA/Obamacare extended to Aug. 15th

One thing I love about President Joe is his undoing and improving the past ugliness of that other administration.

ACA offering lower costs and higher subsidies for more people.

I'm fed up with Govenor Brown

No vaccinations for disabled and elderly until next month or later Maybe those 80+ will be vaccinated next month.

Why? Because she wants schools to reopen and they'll be vaccinating teachers and staff. Schools are reopen and reopening now. During the worst time of the worst pandemic.

In the meantime, they haven't finished vaccinating healthcare workers or long term care residents.

The elderly are welcome to die and continuing to overwhelm our healthcare system.

New covid strain more dangerous for children

https://metro.co.uk/2021/01/03/consultant-slams-garbage-claims-that-covid-wards-are-full-of-children-13839743/

A senior nurse claimed they had a covid ward full of children.

The British government pushed back that the information was wrong

BUT the article says the new strain may be more dangerous for children.

If this new strain is more dangerous for children and the healthy that should be communicated to the public. If they don't know they should say so.

Any other reliable information out there?

Trump Family Circus Stars at Republican Convention

HALF THE FEATURED SPEAKERS ARE THE TRUMP FAMILY at the Republican convention.

Even Tiffany gets a starring role. This is not from the Onion. Trump will speak every night.

Trump destroying the USA

Trump has crossed the Rubicon. He knows he can't win and is now determined to destroy the USA.

Whether through cruelty, malign corruption or revenge Trump is attacking Social Security, Medicare, the Post Office.

Congress must act to remove him or he will get worse.

He's just started in his destruction. We may not have much of a country soon.

Surgery during covid19 First topic

I have a mass in my pancreas. My surgery was postponed a month ago because the ORs were closed for covid.
I'll have surgery next week if my covid19 test (scheduled soon) is negative and I have no symptoms.

My husband won't be able to visit me in the hospital. We've been married almost 40 years. Because of his age and as a cancer survivor, it's too risky for him. The mass has grown, though it's still small. They did find pancreatic cancer markers from my biopsy. So they consider my surgery urgent. I'll be hospitalized anywhere from 5-10 days. I won't know how extensive it'll be until they go inside and look.

I'll miss my hubby, cat, and cell phone. Although the room has a phone. It might sound weird but I was thinking about bringing a stuffed animal for my normal "cat space" along with books.

Suggestions for what else I might bring?

Villians of the virus

Excellent editorial in the Daily Beast about those profiteers from death.
