Default Nov 18, Vaccines

Sorry to learn your sis, D, is dealing with being sick. Everywhere is shifting back to lockdown.

I think the pollsters have been asking the wrong questions. They run something like: "If there was a covid vaccine, would you take it?" A better question would be: "If there were a c-vaccine, would you want to be first in line?" Those people who would take it early become the influencers for the waiters and then eventually some of the doubters.

Speaking of which, I've been watching the developments of the general flu vaccines for this season. Turns out there's two versions, one has only one flu it addresses and the other has four (4!) and is for seniors because we have supposedly declining immune systems.

The early-takers have reported in, some fine, some with reactions. What I'd expect.

For me, I've been focused on discharging a gig for $500 to help review some federal relief monies. Scored individually first, and then with 4 others reviewers to consense on a common score. Each of the 21 applications had 8 questions we scored. We crunched through all 168 questions in 2.5 hours. And we were slow compared to the other groups (probably only a few minutes). We had better discussions, so there!

That done, I've been faced again with playing bridge online. Turns out the P&R dept has been experimenting and thinks they have an arrangement that better mimics in-person play. Given that this lockdown takes up back to square one after 280 days into this, I seriously have to re-think my keeping away from online playing.

Oh, happened upon a sweet potato cornbread recipe with a peach bourbon & butter spread. Gave it a spin yesterday and it ranks nearly as good as cornbread we had in a local restaurant. The total costs was about $20 to make it.

Yuck List: have to research intercom systems because wannabe break-inners have pretty much destroyed the one we have. Thought I'd dig in today. Didn't happen. Hoping tomorrow morning I have the focus, energy, & heart.

Re: comfort levels. It's all a stretch and I went through every emotion over the past 2 years about this work. Never comfortable, but then again, Never Dull.

Hi, R.
My sister is negative for COVID. She thinks it was a reaction to the flu shot. i think she got the single-strain shot. Interesting coincidence with your last post.

I would take the C-vaccine. If I had a bad reaction so be it. I could then be 95% sure I couldn't catch it or spread it. I'd still practice some distancing - no hugging someone who was moaning about being sick, and, as always, no hugging while I'm obviously contagious with anything. COVID or other.

Loving the rain. There wasn't a lot, but it was something.

Default Interpreting the Percents

Hi. I heard from the outreach person from public health today and the earliest chances of getting a c-vax is probably April. Six more months. Aye.

I'm on the cusp of remaking a decision re: online dual app bridge. A bit frazzled today so put it off. I want to set my initial expectations about what would lead me to continue and what to stop. It was for a pilot advertised in Sept. so I might still be too late.

I'm trying to publish and having the usual computer issues. The software to publish an e-book uses about 300 MB for the installer and about 300MB for the previewer. yes, that's MB not KB. Another beautiful sunny day in California.

p.s. The six months does sound about right. The first batches should go to first responders, health-care workers.

Hopefully, I'm ironing out the publishing snags.

I'm published, I think.
Impossible - difficult - done.
On the negative side - I know there are mistakes in the book. I just hope there aren't any huge snafus. And "Temporary Address" still has a final review to get through before it's available.
Anyway, to sum up - Impossible - difficult - done. "Temporary Address" and "Through Unfamiliar Waters" are published.

Not done completely. The published format for "Temporary Address" is large print. So I still have one publishing job to do. "Through Unfamiliar Waters" is done,

Default stream of updates

Thanks for the daily briefs. I fell off a few days just diddling away time. Feels rather good.

Set up to play bridge this Friday & Next. Looking at some presentation videos recorded at The Game Center @ NYU.

ThxGvng day: bought roast duck in Chinatown & bok choi from another place. Plus a few medicinal herb and other groceries.

Tonight after a break I will look over bridge base online to get more comfortable. Had an hour tutorial on Wed. morning which helped get me oriented.

Okay, done. All versions are published and available on Amazon. Next - the joy of promotion - Moving "Temporary Address" and "Through Unfamiliar Waters" forward so that everyone can see it.

I had a break in the action over Thanksgiving. We had a huge party of two - me and my husband - and we had Cornish game hens with stuffing, yams, cranberry sauce, the works (small works) And now - it's back to work.

Hope you had a great - good - fun - Thanksgiving.
