  1. Here is a good place to start on your personal research. https://lcaction.org/vaccine Liberty Counsel has numerous lawsuits pending against forced vacs of federal employees. They receive thousands of phone calls and emails every day from military, police, private citizens working for large companies, and churches. They currently have pending litigation from the district level all the way up to the Supreme Court level. I think you will like them.
  2. I was talking to my Specialty Pharmacist this week about an autoimmune drug I recently started. She was so sweet at the end and wanted to remind me that she wasn't pestering or badgering me about taking the 'vaccine', then went into her spiel. At the end, I reminded her that none of the jabs were 'approved' yet, only 'authorized'. She disagreed and told me that the Pfizer shot was approved. I disagreed and mentioned that the 'approved' Pfizer shot was not available in the USA yet. There was silence at the other end of the phone. Even medical personnel can be misled these days. Here's some of the legal explanation from Liberty Counsel that's available to us when we're confronted by others: FDA Does a Bait and Switch with COVID Shots Aug 27, 2021 WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has done a bait and switch by announcing it approved its “first COVID-19 vaccine” in order to push the “vaccine” mandates and protect the Pfizer pharmaceutical company from legal liability. However, there is currently no fully licensed COVID shot on the United States market. Albeit confusing, and probably intentionally so, this summarizes the current status of the Pfizer-BioNTech shots: All existing Pfizer vials (in the hundreds of millions), remain under the federal Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) (meaning people have the “option to accept or refuse”); The third or “booster” Pfizer shot is identical to the above and remains under the EUA with limited use to certain categories of people; BioNTech received FDA approval for people ages 16 and above under the name Comirnaty, but there are no Comirnaty doses available in the United States; In other words, there is currently NO FDA approved COVID-19 injection available anywhere in the United States. Every COVID shot in America remains under the EUA law and thus people have the “option to accept or refuse” them; and Even when an FDA approved COVID shot becomes available, individuals are protected by federal law and many states laws from being forced to get these shots based on their sincere religious beliefs or conscience rights. On August 23, the FDA issued two separate letters for two separate injections. There are now two legally distinct (Pfizer vs. BioNTech), but otherwise identical products. The first letter is regarding FDA’s biologics license application approval for the Pfizer Inc/BioNTech COVID-19 injection which has been named Comirnaty. Yet Pfizer has not started manufacturing or labeling this drug for U.S. distribution, so it is not even available in the U.S. It is unclear whether or not it is protected by a liability shield, but web-based U.S. government communication indicates that the same program that provides compensation for COVID vaccine-related injuries will apply Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program (CICP) rather than the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program). At this point, there apparently has been no compensation paid to people injured by one of the COVID shots via the CICP. The Pfizer injection, on the other hand, is still considered experimental under U.S. law. There is a legal difference between products approved under authorization of emergency use (EAU) compared with those the FDA has fully licensed. The FDA issued another letter for the existing Pfizer shots which confirms they are still under EUA, are not fully approved, and has a liability shield.
  3. I read that home insurance could rise an average of $100 a year to help offset the rise in lumber prices. I know that in Madison, contractors raised the cost of house-building by $100,00 on new construction. Those people are NUTS to buy into that.
  4. Do you get flu shots? My various docs are pushing the flu shot this year. I can't remember what the specialty pharmacist said yesterday, but it was something like, "with Covid around, the flu could potentially get much worse." I thought they cured the flu last year since they didn't track much except C-19. I'm on the fence with the flu shot this year.
  5. I was put on the 81 mg aspirin while in the hospital last month. I'm not into daily meds but thought I might stay on this regimen. I'm just not sure and haven't taken the time to research it. The cardiac docs at the hospital put me on bp and cholesterol meds on the way out the door. I didn't take them until I talked to my regular VA doc. She had me take my bp for several weeks before making the decision. Past cholesterol blood tests came out normal. Two weeks later, my bp and cholesterol meds are sitting on the dresser. BP averages 118/67 throughout the day. I don't like to be TOO cautious and take all these drugs just because I'm getting old.
  6. I have plenty of chux pads from opened boxes. Charity shop only wants unopened boxes. I have been scratching my head on what to do with them. There's only SO MUCH room in the closet for potential supplies. We do have a lot of touch-up painting to do around here and those chux pads would work great on the floor. Thanks for taking that rabbit hole journey for us.
  7. I have been reading other articles that much of the problem is from trucking firms who REFUSE to require their drivers to get the jab. The Ports are not allowing those companies to haul away the months and months of backup containers from their ports.
  8. DH has been looking for one of these for YEARS. They are great for extra storage and aren't taxed on our property. He just has to figure out how to get the running gear off of it without killing himself and build a ramp into the aluminum box. Generally, an old one costs $2500 plus shipping. We waited long enough and his boss at the racetrack asked him if we wanted their old one out in the woods. YES!! It took DH 2 days to brush out the small trees so that a tow truck could hook onto it and drag it the mile to our place. We were burned on the towing though. They charged us $400 cash for one mile of towing. The other two towing companies didn't even call us back, so we went with what we could get ... and still had to wait weeks for the guy to show up. It seems local companies can't get people to work. They're extremely short on warm bodies. DH and I said that's it time to starting treating our country like it's back in the Depression ... bread and soup lines instead of paying everyone to stay home.
  9. We spent the past few days camping at the national forest up north. The nights were as dark as pitch and no cell service. . A great getaway with bro and SIL. It has been so stressful with mom's end of life the past few weeks. I could have used 2 more weeks but the fishing was lousy except for that big Northern Pike. . I was so happy DH was there to take that ugly fish with 10,000 sharp teeth off the line.
  10. I am getting to that point, too. Have had the flu shot for a few years due to so much traveling. I am thinking of becoming a hermit and foregoing all of that stuff in the future. If a child received a covid jab at Walgreens instead of a flu shot and was told by that pharmacy "sorry", that makes my neck hairs stand on end. Who the heck has their child get a flu shot, anyway.
  11. They fell about 2 feet and caught by the safety lines. They had to climb back up with help and back to where they came from which was about 4' behind them. They took off their helmets and harnesses and went down to the bleachers the rest of the afternoon. Only bruised the pride. We think we're still young even though our bodies tell a different story.
  12. Will be praying for her. So many of the side affect numbers are being buried. Our hospice nurse had to quit last month. Her upper arm and shoulder became numb and really hurt. She can't maneuver her patients anymore. She was an incredibly knowledgeable and compassionate medical nurse.
  13. There were guides at various 'crows nests' around the course. After the instruction on the first obstacle, we were left to figure out how to get through the rest of the course. We could go many different directions. We paired up and went out. Only four people could be on one phase of the course at a time. We had our own colored safety cable above us to hook into. The other pair on the course took the other colored cable. OSHA would be proud of the safety training we received. We did have one lady who ended upside down and didn't have the upper body strength to upright herself. She was not built to even tackle the course, but they allowed her. It took over 20 minutes for the instructors to get her head above her heart. It would have been a good time to have several MALE instructors handy to help with muscling her back to the next crows nest. The guys weren't very far away. They just let the female instructors learn some valuable lessons themselves, like trying to scoot dead weight uphill for 30'. Once they figured out leverage instead of muscle, they got the poor lady to safety. Several other ladies made it out onto the first obstacle and fell. They spent much of the afternoon weepy and discouraged. Our pastor's wife did some consulting and really helped the ladies. All-in-all it was fantastic. IF we decide to do it next year, we'll get back to the health club and get in better shape. Besides, I was only 3 weeks out of the hospital and only 1 week from raising my arm above my head due to Shingles.
  14. Yesterday was a fun day after church. A GF and I challenged each other to a zip-line experience MONTHS ago and invited the other ladies at church to join us. Then the pandemic shut down everything and our adventure was put on hold. The dream came to reality yesterday ... only the adventurous course location changed. We also had over 60 ladies sign up for the afternoon instead of the limit of 20 at the other place. If you survived the course, there was a huge dinner waiting at the dining hall. The course was high-ropes. It was built on huge power poles and stood 40' off the ground. They said that people become paranoid and paralyzed after 35' off the ground. The course was set up for teenage church groups and was used for team building. They stay for a few days in cabins and go on different adventures, including the rushing waters of the Wisconsin River. Back to the story. My GF and I walked up the three flights of stairs and realized we had made a small miscalculation. We didn't have the upper body strength as we did in earlier days. However, everybody was watching and we couldn't turn back. Sort of like the adventures Dar and I used to sign up for before our brains matured. I must say that we did survive and were cheered at the finish line. Both of us had bodies like noodles and knew we would pay a big price on the following days. By the time we got to the dining hall, all the young whipper snappers were already talking about a new adventure in the springtime.
