  1. Here is another situation that was discussed on a reddit forum for etsy: https://www.reddit.com/r/Etsy/comments/knop52/someone_keeps_opening_dozens_of_ghost_shops_with/ Maybe these are shops that eventually will be sold by the person creating them to banned ip addresses? Like @gardenmom5 said as a way to skirt etsy’s rules?
  2. J&J’s data readout is supposed to come out very soon, within two weeks, and is looking promising from what I’ve read. It takes awhile to develop an immune response but it’s only one dose. (They are also testing two doses but that is not this trial.) The difficulty will lie with meeting production and administering. We will have to wait and see how that transpires. https://www.jnj.com/johnson-johnson-covid-19-vaccine-candidate-interim-phase-1-2a-data-published-in-new-england-journal-of-medicine The Phase 1/2a interim analysis showed that the Company’s COVID-19 vaccine candida
  3. Covid and the vagus nerve are being studied as well as some of the devices that stimulate the vagus nerve. I’m not really following it for Covid, but here are some articles and studies, if interested: https://www.google.com/search?q=covid+vagus+nerve&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&hl=en-us&client=safari
  4. For vaccines in general, 95% efficacy is quite high but there is still a small chance to get Covid even after getting vaccinated, hopefully a milder version. I’m sorry about your father, too, Janeway.
  5. How can a buyer avoid these scams? Buy from someone with a lot of good ratings?
  6. In the 70s we called them prairie dresses. To finish the look — a pair of cowboy boots. And Farrah Fawcett or Dorothy Hamill ‘do. Famolare shoes with the wavy soles were popular. And the uber-ugly earth shoes. I’m hoping the old school, button-fly, 100% cotton Levi’s will make a come back.

    Somatic therapy might be worth a try just to see if you find it helpful. I agree that you could also try leaving the door open to your other counselor as well in case you want to go back. Hopefully they’ll get their system running better more sooner than later.
  8. The swelling sounds like dactylitis which they are seeing occasionally in cases of Covid. Any chance she might have Covid? You might want to monitor her kidney function because the damage can lead to later health problems. Earlier treatment is better. ETA They are usually seeing redness along with swelling but even without redness, Covid could possibly be behind it. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7744858/ 4.10. Acral erythema and dactylitis In one study, 20% of cases had dactylitis presenting as erythematous inflamed digits. Both fingers and toes were invo
  9. She could also have chronically low levels of intestinal alkaline phosphatase (IAP) which can occur after even short-term, low-grade salmonella infections. The salmonella increase neurominidase activity in the small intestine which quickly “ages” the IAP causing rapid turnover. This doesn't correct itself on its own and the result is chronic inflammation that can lead to IBD. You could try giving her a good quality curcumin supplement like Thorne Meriva and also a small amount of food-grade diatamaceous earth (must be food-grade). If you eventually do go to a gastro, you might want t
  10. We love them! I bought one for a son and then had to buy one for myself. They are very well designed and almost fool-proof. The seeds grow in brown plugs of coco-coir or peat inside little plastic baskets that are immersed in water. The water circulates so it doesn't get stagnant. Every so often, the display will tell you to add fertilizer or top off with more water. You can reuse the plastic baskets but not the brown plugs. You can also buy the plastic baskets and plugs separately if you want to grow your own seeds. Cheaper and more versatile. That’s what I do. @Pam in CT Aerog
  11. My husband used to be involved with nuclear fallout shelters decades ago and said it’s likely there are a number of bunkers in place for the President and Congress as well as others. We also have movable, underground missile systems.
  12. Most people who get Covid naturally are not making enough antibodies and memory cells. The vaccines cause the immune system to make magnitudes more antibodies and memory cells. The antibodies break down after a number of months, which is normal, but the memory cells will move into the bone marrow where they will remain long-term ready to make antibodies if an individual is exposed to the virus again. The vaccines are looking effective so far.
  13. I’m lurking on a forum for MDs who are discussing vaccine experiences. They are noticing that younger people often have stronger reactions than the elderly. Also, people who had Covid who then got vaccinated, often have the stronger reactions right after the first dose. ETA: a strong response is not bad, either. After getting vaccinated, I plan to have a clean house, my favorite food and hope to finally finish watching Mad Men unless I wind up sleeping. Also, Johnson & Johnson should be releasing their results soon and that could end up being a one-and-done. Could be two also. Gu
  14. I want it all! Beach, mountains, canyons, waterfalls and why not a volcano? Hawaii for me.
  15. Have you tried the Feliway plug-in diffuser? My youngest introduced a second kitten to his older cat and Feliway helped stop the fighting. Now they even cuddle. Amazing stuff.
