Had my jab. Am still alive (checks, pinches self, yep).
Only side effect thus far is a stiff arm and shoulder.

There's a long interesting back story here, and a running joke for the unwary - you may consider yourself a victim of it.

Psst Rob, that's called soot and means you have to ask your neighbors to clean their chimney. 😜
I went further than that, I had my neighbour legally required to MOVE his chimney, only two years after my other neighbour legally required him to make it taller. Must have cost him a fortune. We have gas! Use it and stop burning wood!


Irrespective of what I may get caught up in, I intend to keep burning wood till my body gets too old and cronky to deal with cutting, splitting and moving it. Our wood stove provides not only heat for the home but all our hot water needs during the winter months.

Getting vaccine Wednesday. When eventually I get second one, and my DNA has fully mutated do I get a bonus superpower?

Probably after you endured the loss of an arm for the duration of at least 24 hours. It'll still be there, but damn painful to use. ;-)

This is why I no longer use a dentist. One actually said to me "your gums are bleeding!" after having poked at them with sharp metal objects.

That explains alot to me. Totally consistent With the previous posts I have seen.

Oops! Suspended network activity on Saturday to avoid interfering with two separate zoom meetings going on much of the day. Forgot to turn it back on till this morning and now have 2GB of data to upload. That will keep the bored band busy for a while!

wonder if a dish could get me on to the free wifi at our community centre which is 30MB/s up and down as opposed to 5MB download and 100KB/s upload which is what I get?
Edit: If it were the laptop, I would wander over there.
