This is the fourth year running that I have just nipped over to our very handy pharmacy at the Alton Hannaford’s and got my flu shot — with hardly any delay and definitely without any fuss. I love the convenience and the speed.

We are new to taking flu shots. I did not believe in them — plus there was the added factor that I was somewhat younger.

I had also never thought that I would ever get my flu shots from a local pharmacy. Well it sure beats going to a doctor’s office and having to wait 30 minutes.

I have only used the Hannaford’s pharmacy in Alton and to be fair I consider them friends, and until earlier this year, our friend, Richard Leonard, was one of the pharmacists there. This year I got it from a stand-in pharmacist, Peter Hill, that I have never seen before. But he was good. Didn’t feel a thing. I checked the syringe to make sure that he had actually given me a shot! You know I am the ever trusting sort.

So two thumbs up for Hannaford.

The vaccine I got is referred to as 0.5 FLUVIRIN 2015 – 2016, manufactured by Novartis on one sheet of paper and as Trivalent IIV by Sanofi, batch number 1514801, in another. So lets see how it goes.

It will be difficult to have the traditional Paris <–> London races etc., for obvious reasons.

France and the World will still be in shock and mourning next
Thursday, Beaujolais Nouveau Day 2015.

Yes, the cartons with the bottles will already be in the
U.S. and other countries.

BUT MAYBE we should rethink HOW we mark this Beaujolais Nouveau Day.
I for one will be ‘happy’ to forgo celebrations per se.

So just a quick heads up.

The notes will be ultra pithy but you should not have any difficulty working out what I am talking about. So here goes, the first post of this genre.
