    COVID-19 vaccine

    I mentioned, a few weeks ago, that my friend visited the mainland and came back with COVID. He is the president of a large (for Hilo anyway) radio station and the head coach of the UH-Hilo woman's volleyball team. He shared his experience in this article... https://www.hawaiitribune-herald.com/2021/08/01/opinion/my-experience-with-covid-19/

    70 @meyery2k - Bottom left corner? Under the green leaves? I see cutting my grass as exercise. I don't enjoy doing it but who enjoys exercise? But I love seeing it all done. I just can't pay for a lawn service. Since grass has to be cut weekly here, it's around $150/month. Now if I could find one of those kids like Irina to do it cheap, well I think I'd do that! I used to just go out in the heat and do it all non-stop. Now I take breaks because I know it's the smart thing to do. Cutting grass actually saved my life. 16 years ago at 42 I got to where I couldn't push the mower for 5 minutes without getting out of breath. Long story short, I ended up getting two coronary stents for blockage as that was the reason. Haven't had a problem since.

    125 was my reading this morning. Brrr... It is only 58 (14C) this morning, it feels like the beginning of October instead of August.

    7.2 which I dispute.. 2 bowls of curried cabbage soup does not reflect such a reading. Not even magining a birthday cake for horses would excite. Happy Birthday to all the horses. Theres no snake in the pic here Mike, but I can see a letter beside the monitor from SpecSavers which reads Notice: Your eye test is OVERDUE The Chase is my fav.. the Brit version is at 3pm & the Australian at 5. Much prefer the Brits but we had a new host started Friday so I'll start watching again.

    I think so. The center of the bottom of the photo and under that yellowish leaf just right of the center of the photo. It looks like a broken stick.

    The same here. When I developed a heart arrhythmia I hired a landscaper to do my lawn and the driveway in winter.

    130 this morning and we got rain - 1.6 inches of it! And the best part is is 65F outside and everything looks green like Ireland It is going to stay 80-85F for several days with cool mornings which means walks in the park. I do not do yard work in the heat, I go red on face like tomato in 20 min and worry about stroking out. I do not like paying for cutting lawn but I found local kid with push mower that wanted to save for his first car and neighbors were all supportive. So, every Thursday I write a check and watch lawn being cut, trimmed and clippings blown from the pavement. And NOT being taken to ICU with stoke or heart attack. Mike, 50% off beef and chicken is my favorite I check dates on the packages when I go to Target next door then pop in the store 2-3 days prior after weekend and always find $3 off $6 package of ground beef or $5 off $10 chicken or chicken wings. I cook it same day because I am always food poisoning paranoid.

    127 I do not want to have to cut my grass on the weekend and I work all day, so afternoons is when I've always done it. Now I'm sitting here enjoying my nice looking lawn this morning. Oh and I love The Chase. My mom and I watch it whenever I'm visiting her.

    6.2 at 4am having been woken with hunger pangs. I'd certainly not cope in a famine. Then to be confronted with the headlines of the day " Cold snap covers parts of Brazil in snow and drives up coffee prices." I might go back to bed & hope my second awakening is better. FunDad, 4pm is usually too hot on a Summers day to be mowing lawns. I find 3pm is the hottest time so stay indoors & watch The Chase.

    95 today. Pays off to haunt the grocer at 6AM most every day. Can get the meat and fish they have to sell that day for 30% off so I pay what I think I should pay for it vs. what they want to charge lol... I get some great fish, chicken, and steaks. If I don't eat them the same day then I can freeze them. Once in a while, I can get roast beef or pork for holiday meals or when I just want to make one. My daughter does the same thing now lol... We are like suburban hunters with our prey being the 30% or 50%. In Wyoming, she even finds many "buy one get one" offers.
