    Masks and fogged glasses

    Metal strip does nothing for mine, that is why I tape it.

    Masks and fogged glasses

    Hammer mine have a metal strip and my glasses still fog. In fact most masks have some kind of metal strip including those disposable masks. Perhaps yours is closer fitting around the face and nose

    Masks and fogged glasses

    If you get a mask that has a metal strip that runs along the bridge of your nose, that will prevent the fogging problem, as the metal strip can be pressed so that no air escapes from the top of the nose area, where your glasses are. These are the masks that I have, but I don't know if they are still available, since they are N95 masks, and are usually only available to front line workers. There are a number of KN95 masks that have the same metal strip, so maybe check those out.

    Fasting BG of 2021

    A 79 (4.39) today. Diana, this is what I do when my hands are cold, since I keep my thermostats set to 60°F (15.5°C). I get my meter, lancing device, test strips, bottle of rubbing alcohol, and cotton balls, set up to do the test. I then go into my bedroom, grab the blow dryer, and blow it on the hand that I'm going to use. I'll squeeze my fingers a few times, until they no longer feel cold. I'll place the end of the blow dryer on my pocket, and warm up the pocket on the side that the hand is that I'm going to test. Once my hand is warm, I'll place it in my warmed up pocket, and quickly walk out to my testing set up. I will have already placed a cotton ball on top of the alcohol bottle, and turned the bottle over to wet the cotton ball, so it's ready to use. Once I get to my test set up, I'll wipe one of my fingers with it, on the hand that I warmed up, wipe the finger off with a clean tissue, then lance my finger, and gently squeeze it, and a drop of blood will easily come out. If that still doesn't work, lower the arm that has the hand that you lanced with the lancing device, let that arm hang limp at your side, and swing it like a pendulum several times, keeping your hand limp. That usually works for me also.

    144 Did you ever wonder if you are dead? No matter how many times you try, you just can't draw a drop of blood. I felt like a pin cushion this morning trying to get a sample, I must have tried 10 or 12 times to get a drop of blood. (I think that it was because my bedroom is set to 55 at night and my hands are cold)

    Coronavirus

    Not Necessarily. If Biden gets the vaccinations organized like he;s supposed to it might go faster than you think. Just keep your eye on the ball and go when they say to

    7.1 Ahnanimus, screaming ouch for you, as I've been introduced to gout in the past. I was scared it would return after kicking a tiny ball for the dog, but its just bruised & hurts. My big toe dug into the carpet as the rest of my foot walked forward.

    Coronavirus

    I don't think you'll have a choice. They will give you the vaccine that is available. It's not like they have a multitude of vaccines where you can pick or choose. For myself I'd rather have Moderna or Pfizer but I'll take what I can get and the sooner the better

    And you think cell phones are good?

    I believe it was FM and it was line of sight...almost, our building was on top of hill and we were on the 5th floor and out of my window on clear day I could see Long Island Sound 25 miles away and the tops of skyscrapers in NYC, the two-way radio shop was located near the north shore of Long Island Sound in Nassau County within sight of the sound. "... it will burn you." It did. The base station was 75W and I had a nice blister on the palm of hand. It was the flickering florescent lights that gave me the idea. Speaking of flickering florescent lights, I worked at a summer job where they made helicopters for the Navy and when they tested the radar on the helicopters the florescent lights brighten as the beam swept by them. I tried to be far, far away when they tested it. I learned many years latter that that the technician died of cancer.

    And you think cell phones are good?

    Maybe a little off-topic but "Emergency!" was one of my favorite TV shows growing up. I have looked into the show's history and the producers tried to be as realistic as they could. Being in telecom, it was interesting to look into what the tones did before the call out. Each station's radio could either receive all traffic on the PA keeping the crew from resting or selectively activate when a certain tone combination was received. My biggest take away from Emergency was that "D-Fib" was a very bad thing. Fun fact - For dramatic license, they would shock a patient that was flat-lined. The reality is the paddles only work on defibrillated patients. The shock stops the heart and, hopefully, the body will resume the heart muscle function with a more normalized rhythym. They also came up with some imaginative scenarios. It has aged quite well even though the tech is antique lol... But, yeah, that portable EKG thing was cool. I wished I had one...

    Diana_CT, I would imagine that the Motorola walkie-talkies were transmitting FM signals, since that's what most VHF and UHF transmitters use. The antennas that you used, as well as what the Long Island station used, must have been really nice antennas, since 25 watts of an FM transmission on 468 MHz, wouldn't go 70 miles, unless they were using good antennas. Depending on the florescent lamp that you connected to the RG58 socket, which was most likely an SO-239 socket that connected to RG58 coax cable, I wonder if you had tried to just lay that lamp down on the table, next to the SO-239 connector? There are a number of light bulbs that will light up when placed next to a transmitted signal. On, and yes, touching an antenna when someone is transmitting will give you a nasty RF burn. What always amazed me was that, if you touch an antenna when someone is transmitting, it will burn you, yet, once they stop transmitting, the antenna is cold to the touch. Anyway, it sounds like you had an interesting career!😊

    @FunDad62 - a 5mg or 10mg melatonin supplement helps me sleep on fasting days. Ask your doctor first of course
