Generally I proofread my posts before pushing "send".  I think someone was getting a little tired of hearing about the public schools of Chicago.

I signed up to be on the vaccine waitlist. No idea how long it will be until I get an appointment.

It sounds like the WHO came to the conclusion that the virus came from a bat.

Where did you get that from?

Quote

Based on our analysis, and as confirmed by the global study convened by the World Health Organization (WHO) and Chinese authorities, there is as yet no evidence demonstrating a fully natural origin of this virus.

That’s from the PDF.

We're rescheduled for this Friday, two days from now.  3000 getting their second shot the same day.  We're at 7:30 AM, 150 miles away, and we are taking my 86-year-old MIL, who is 35 miles from the event.

woo hoo!

Since it's been mentioned, an Internet friend volunteered for one of the trials.  She got the placebo, and they did not give her the vaccine when it was approved.  That's not fair!

I would not change a thing, but Wednesday, five days after our second Pfizer shot, I noticed some bumps on the back of my head, in addition to the golfball bump.  I am never sick, but Friday I was diagnosed with Shingles.  My doctor-type-person said that can happen when your immune system is being manipulated.  I see on the Internet, it's happened to others.

Shingles is everything it's advertised to be!!!!!

It's tough.  Good luck.

 

CBS New reported this morning that China is not giving the WHO all of the data they have on the virus.   It's assumed, according to CBS News, that the virus came from bats and was denied access to a cave where it is assumed to originated.

This morning I got an email notice that I could schedule my first vaccine dose, 8 days after getting myself on the list for my county.  I'm now scheduled to be vaccinated tomorrow afternoon at 4 PM, getting the Pfizer formulation.  So far so good.

I can’t wait until this General COVID gets demoted to Colonel or even Major COVID. Or better yet, dishonorably discharged.

Firstly, I know my father had shingles a few years back. It was annoying but he seemed to get past it pretty quickly. So, I hope you too, have a speedy recovery. 

 

Oh, and one quick question: Did you have Chicken Pox as a kid?

I have no idea.

It looks like shingles hangs around awhile, several weeks.  Either it is not as full-blown now (6 days into it) or I'm getting used to it.

    • Day 169 - Full swings using MirrorVision. Need to film a few for Evolvr to see how things are progressing. 
    • Day 73: Really wiped out today, so just hit 15 balls with 9-3 swings, and then putted around inside. 
    • I tried them out a few years back but chose the Callaway Mavrik Pros. They’re nice as most Mizuno irons are. I used to play MP54’s and really liked them. I had a Mizuno stand  bag and never had any issues with it.🙂
    • Day 184: 6/24/24 Putting practice on a 3’ ruler, 1” wide. Good session and I hope to get back to full swings once tennis elbow improves. Exercises aren’t currently helping.
    • So last weekend was our annual two man best ball (two round net total for flight honors + a cross flight shootout tournament -  Schaubach Cup) tournament. It was a tale of two rounds. On day 1 my partner and bestie Pete (15.5 hcp) totally ham and egged to shoot a tourney best 58 - four shots clear of our next flight competitor team. He shot a career best 79 coming out with 5 straight pars while I fought my driver. I finally found my swing on the 6th hole and birdied three holes on the back side all of which I was stroking to pick up three net eagles. We basically played our our minds. It's amazing when driver/wedge/putter all workout. On the same day.  Day 2, as often happens ended up being a different story. We couldn't get much done with greens drying out to lightning fast (12 stimp) and shot a net 70 to finish 4 shots outside of making it to the playoffs. Good news was our flight leader won winning everyone in our flight $300 each.  In summary, except for the first four of the five holes, I have never driven the ball better and ecstatic that my putter made me a few bombs. Wedge was as good as I can control one in the pesky 55 to 85 yard range. Of course, all of this was day 1. Day 2 wasn't terrible but made no birds and had three three-putts...and my partner played like he had blown his load on Day 1. Heh. Another team shot 59 to beat us by a cumulative 4 shots. Came in 2nd. All in all was a great weekend.
