    The COVID Vaccination Thread

    I got my Pfizer doses on 27 February and 20 March. I've suffered from insomnia for years but my insomnia throughout March was the worst I've endured. I wonder whether the vaccine had played a part in this. I'm just now getting better and sleeping more normally most nights.

    A friend sent me a message stating he'd received the J&J vaccine, and developed a 102* F (38.9* C) fever that night.

    Heck people forget about boosters for an awful lot of vaccines. Things like Tetanus shots, e.g. the TDaP shots. Flu vaccines are annuals.

    My pharmacy has been making me wait awhile after all my vaccinations, including TDaP and the Shingrix pair.

    I got my second dose of the Phazer vaccine yesterday. So far no real problems with side effects, other than a very slight soreness near the injection point. I had them inject into the other arm. I had a lot more issues with the Shingrix vaccine a year ago.

    You guys worry about the size of the needle? Give me a break. I had a pericardiocentesis in 2018. That's where they stick a large needle through your ribcage to drain excess fluid from a pericardial effusion. I had that needle in my ribs for four days in the ICU. :rolleyes:

    What's cooking?

    Asparagus is cheap now. Prices range from 88 cents to 99 cents per pound. The steak is marinating and the garlic spread on the sourdough bread is softening. Amazing BBQ dinner for a cheap price.

    Well there's this.... https://www.healthline.com/health-news/how-alcohol-may-affect-your-response-to-the-covid-19-vaccine The Russians say abstain from alcohol for 2 months after the vaccine. The Brits say a couple of weeks. The US says don't worry. The Russians drink the most. The Brits...

    I got my first dose of the Phazer vaccine a few hours ago. So far so good. What's the scoop about drinking after the shots? I feel like red wine and pizza right about now.

    I wonder whether NOT having a reaction implies you previously had a symptomless case of Covid.

    I got the two dose Shingrix vaccine last fall. IIRC I did feel somewhat blah after the second dose.

    What's cooking?

    I think I've finally mastered grilling boneless chicken breasts on the BBQ. The suggestion I read was to pound them flat, like you would with scallopini. I put the breast into a plastic bag, then pound it with my 2 lb sledgehammer until it's approximately 5/8" thick. After marinating it goes...

    I've wasted most of February trying to get an appointment. Finally got one today for a pop-up clinic this Saturday at 10 AM. Naturally it's supposed to snow that morning. Appointment for the second shot will be given at that time.

    PSA - shutoff tool to keep around for disasters

    I had to look this link up so I thought I'd share it. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Orbit-Emergency-Gas-and-Water-Shutoff-Tool-26097/100030514 It's $10 well spent for the next time you really need one. I bought mine years ago.

    I feel guilty enjoying the weather here in Boise: blue skies and 40* F (4.4* C) with dry pavements. I took the Miata (MX-5) out for a long drive top-down through the countryside this afternoon.

    Paul Simon Songbook (1965)

    After listening to this album for a while, I find I like it more than the more famous S&G albums. There's just something wrong about singing about loneliness and alienation when you sing it with a vocal ensemble and a good sized backup band. Good heavens, the SOS album contains two songs about...
