  1. I agree that it will likely be made mandatory. I suppose that's a debate for another time. At the moment there is still a choice and I just think it would be nice to respect everyone's reason even if they don't agree with someone else's and regardless of a person's income / education level.
  2. I cannot answer for your area or for the pop you are questioning, however, it seems there are several people who are waiting to see how this vaccine works out. I can hear that you are upset because you are worried about your father. Health care workers are also worried about a myriad of issues. I will not comment on the "low education people who don't know better" part. I hope this comes from a point of agitation and not from a deep set belief. Part of COVID and what this has taught us is that everyone makes decisions for themselves and we cannot force anyone to make the decision we would make. As far as I know, no employer right now can demand people be vaccinated - and if you think about this, it would be a huge liability issue. All it would take is one person becoming ill or worse.
  3. Not to derail - sorry Quill - Carol I tried to PM you but it said you cannot receive messages. 😞
  4. I have not read anything that is surprising. Girls often rebel against their mothers - or rather call a few things "mom" did or stands for into question. Also, I would not call it curfew but would rather appeal to her as an adult now and the need to respect being quiet when entering the house at an hour when others may be asleep. At this age, IMHO, we become more of a cheerleader and encourager than do active parenting. Respecting their emerging adulthood even if their views and actions don't line up with our principles is difficult for us but necessary for them, I think. You mentioned "blame shifting" in particular and I agree that I would not allow this without setting boundaries. Establishing healthy boundaries with our adult sons / daughters should be the same as having boundaries with anyone else outside of family.
  5. And what is the recommendation if you don't know if you had chickenpox or you may have never had it?
  6. Gasp. I never had a kindle. I have Overdrive on my phone and get library books that way. We have Amazon Prime, sounds like the Kindle is connected to Amazon. Would there be a significant advantage to having a kindle over just using the phone?
  7. I second the suggestion of drawing names. This will reduce the number of people and you can focus on a few instead of the whole clan. You may not be the only one who would like it. I'd bring it up to a few people and see what the reaction is. You have 11 months to work on it. 🙂
  8. Lohengrin Amenhotep Horus Hyronimus Anubis Arthur Theodore Are we talking a tom cat for sure?
  9. I want to read or listen to "What's a Girl Worth" but I don't have the bandwidth right now for anything too descriptive. Should I wait with this one?
  10. Audiobook: Murder on Murray Hill by Thompson. @mumto2 I have the "Beyond" book on hold with Overdrive. Must be very popular. I am a little ways down the list. Reading: The Order by Silva. Always a treat.
  11. My Naturopath has a medical degree from WA state. She can order labs, prescribe and perform exams. And I agree with you on MDs having very little education on diet. Naturopaths (with medical degrees) have to take additional courses in naturopathy, homeopathy and osteopathic manipulation. ETA: Hypercalcemia
  12. You are right in the sweet spot. I am currently too high and have to lay off for a while. I forgot that my Omega 3 has also D3 in it. Contrary to what Tap's doctor says, my naturopath does not want anyone beyond 80 because (according to her) this is where some people show signs of HC. There are many different opinions about this. Main thing would be how are you feeling?
  13. Reading: Almost finished "Crushing Depth" by Dani Pettrey and I am sorry to report it was rather disappointing. I don't recognize this writing as the author of the Alaska series and the Chesapeake Series. Someone must be ghostwriting. No other way to explain it. Audio: I listening to Murder on 5th Avenue by Thompson. Many thanks to whoever recommended this series - probably Mumto2 - it has provided me with hours of entertainment for the last few months and I think I have a few books to go. I saw another recommendation and will give that one a try as well.
  14. I do contact local florists online or even call - time difference is awkward but can be done. I've had good results with this. Seems like they make an effort because they are local and the recipient is local so there is an incentive to deliver a decent product. I've had large arrangements delivered to weddings and funerals. I have never tried fleurop from the US.
  15. Lots of people present with cold symptoms after testing positive for CV19. At my work - medical and BH setting, there are many people who are positive and have cold symptoms and nothing more.
  16. Reading: Crushing Depth by Dani Pettrey Her first Alaska series seemed better. I hope we are not going downhill. I really liked the first series. Yes, I temporarily took a break from Gabriel Allon. 🙂 I would like to snag Acceptable Risk by Lynette Eason for my next read. I have to see if Overdrive has it. Audiobooks Murder in Chelsea by Victoria Thompson - almost finished. Next in line is Murder on Fifth Avenue by same author.
  17. I currently have to the ceiling cabinets and every inch is used. The top shelf contains seasonal dishes like holiday platters, etc. Previously I had space above the cabinets because of wood beams in the kitchen and while I love the beams, it's useless space to me. I had to climb up there and dust ever so often.
  18. I liked having a pull out with the trash and recycling bins in there. Bins could just be lifted out. This was super handy and I could pull the bins out right underneath the cutting board.
  19. Friends did IVF a over 17 years ago and were very disturbed by the fact that more eggs would be fertilized than she would carry to term. I don't remember what they ended up doing. I think it might bother me to know I had frozen "kids" that I could not give birth to for one reason or another - family size, age, etc. But then, I have never been in this situation myself. @MercyA, do we know what percentage of frozen embryos are being released for adoption?
  20. Still reading the Rembrandt Affair by Silva. Listening to Murder at Chelsea by Thompson. Rumer Godden sounds interesting. I have so little time to read that it's frustrating. Maybe I start with the Christmas story since we are nearly in December.
  21. Nothin new or exciting here. Audio: Murder in Chelsea by Thompson. I am evidently determined to read through her Gaslight series which seems to be endless - good for audio though. Reading: The Rembrandt Affair by Silva I am off for four whole days. Maybe I should tackle Middlemarch again or something substantial?
  22. It's a common myth to think these disorders are exclusive to adopted children. Happens more frequently than we would think.
  23. Yes, CV19 infections and CV19 cases are different. Not always an immediate positive after infection.
