  1. I had a horrific case of chicken pox as a kid and there's no way I would ever want shingles. I got the shingrix vaccine in the past year, the doses right at 6 months apart. (Mostly I waited the longer time because my second dose was during a lot of initial covid shutdows.) I am 53. The first dose was fine. The second dose made me feel achy/bad about 6 hours after getting it. I basically felt achy overnight (less than 24 hours total). Normally I have no or extremely mild reactions to vaccines so feeling achy for about 8 to 10 hours was a new one for me. But, so what? Less than a

    Yes, I've always had vivid dreams (whether dreams or nightmares). Some are long, some have continued (sometimes years later), some revisit things, and sometimes I've had an almost perfect repeat of a dream. There are a few that were so striking that I still remember them clearly, even though they were from years & years ago. All day I've been thinking about all the weirdly specific details from a dream I was having last night.
  3. Try a different one. I took antidepressants/anti-anxiety medicine a few years ago. A couple of weeks into taking it, I realized I was having suicidal thoughts. I knew that was not normal. (It's a weird, but true, possible side-effect of many antidepressants.) My doctor pulled me off that one & I started a different one. Night & day difference for me. The second one helped me so much, helped me get to a much better place, & I was eventually able to wean off of them about a year later. As Pam said, sometimes it takes a bit to find the correct one for each person. Know
  4. Yeah, I ordered some too for my sister and her husband. I know they will love them.
  5. For trees, wrap them around the trunks. Lay them in rows on the ground? Or in some shape/design? (When I had lighted reindeer, I would put strands of green lights on the ground under them so it looked like grass.) Maybe instead of hanging them horizontally across the gutters, clip them at one end and let them hang down vertically? You could also use some inside on banisters, across the mantel, across the tops of bathroom mirrors, etc. Eta: This might work with your Japanese Maple... https://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=https%3A%2F%2Fi.pinimg.com%2Foriginals%2F42%2F73%2
  6. Not if they're cat owners. No siree. See plenty enough irl. Lol.
  7. This reminds me of another deck I heard of earlier this year: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/queeng-playing-cards#/ Basically a regular playing deck (so you can use them with any games you play using regular decks), but it levels the gender playing field (rather than kings being of more value than queens). More info at the link....
  8. Congrats, Quill! He's fortunate to have you working with him.
  9. Souper Jenny is a local place that has great soups and other healthy foods. It looks like they stopped delivery at the beginning of this month but it does look like they still have a care package you can send if within the delivery zone. Depending on where they are in Brookhaven, they are likely in the zone. You could call and ask. https://www.souperjennyatl.com/shop/care-package-no-flu-for-you-buckhead-pick-up-xabsc If they like coffee to brew at home, you could send them coffee from Land of a Thousand Hills. https://landofathousandhills.com/collections/all For pastri
  10. I loved The Master & Margarita but I am sure I missed a ton of references & info. I do plan to read it again someday. For something different than what has already been suggested, I highly recommend A Dream in Polar Fog by Yuri Rytkheu, a Chukchi writer. For something with a more modern setting, I enjoyed The Dream Life of Sukhanov by Olga Grushin.
  11. I had backed their kickstarter (pre-covid days) for their larger mugs. The mugs arrived after the covid lockdowns, so it was a fun, ironic treat to get them. My ds & I use them tons. He likes them because the handle is big enough for his big hands. (He's 19.) They are very nice quality & hold up well to daily use & dishwashers. (I don't want to own things unless they can go in a dishwasher or washing machine, lol.) I would love to buy some of their plates, but they are so very pricey.

  13. I have been laughing my head off at some of these items. Calamity Ware has fun stuff. A lot of it is pricey but there are more reasonably priced things too. https://calamityware.com/ Thanks for this thread, Karen. And thanks to everyone who posts. I have found some great gifts thanks to you guys!
  14. Awesome. Thanks! I just found a perfect gift for my sister.
  15. I agree. Everything I've made from there is really tasty. I also really like Clean Food, Dirty Girl. Be forewarned that she swears a lot in her posts & videos. Like Monkey and Me Kitchen, the food is awesome. Those two are the ones I've had the most success with & had the tastiest food. ETA: Another good one I thought of is Connoisseurus Veg. I really like her Aloo Palak recipe.
  16. The National Book Festival (Library of Congress) will be starting on Friday. Online registration is free & very quick (your name & email). The festival information page is here. They have a great line-up of authors, as well as many Q&A sessions with various departments from the Library of Congress. and
  17. The National Book Festival (done by the Library of Congress) starts Friday. Online registration is free. They have an amazing round-up of authors, as well as many Q&A sessions slated with various departments at the Library of Congress. Festival information page is here. Wanted to post here because, if you don't want to pick your own schedule or are interested in a particular theme, they have a couple of themed topics. The theme I want to post here is "Hearing Black Voices". and
  18. There is a link in the thread to read the policy proposal.
  19. I started reading Invisible No More: Police Violence Against Black Women and Women of Color by Andrea J. Ritchie. It was written in 2017 & from the introduction alone, I can tell this book is timely. I was adding it to my GR page & noticed that it is currently free for kindle, which is why I wanted to go ahead & mention it here.
  20. If anyone wants to spin this off into a separate thread, please feel free to do so.
