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

Looks like I may have jumped the shark.

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?

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.

    • I remember reading some old Golf Digest article quoting Trump as saying pushcarts are "a bad look". To each their own. I got little interest in places like that.   
    • Is there a pushcart stigma on high-end courses?
    • Why are you even looking at the Golf Channel? If I've got time to watch something, I've got the Masters app streaming it live (AirPlaying it to my TV). In the evening, watching the DVR of ESPN's broadcast. No time to even see what's on GC.
    • I can't golf with multi-focal lenses. The changing focus is just too much to handle when setting up to the ball. Fortunately, my distance vision is still good enough for golf so I can remove the glasses. I would recommend talking to your optometrist about the problem and have him suggest a prescription for a single vision lens that will work.
    • Poor Golf Channel. Can’t show any golf so they fill their time with so much bs and rhetorical comments. They spent 30 minutes talking about Justin Rose’s swing like it’s some phenom and amazingly unique swing. David Duval seems to think he could walk along the practice area and fix every golfer’s swing. Lol....poor bastards.
