It is Friday, November 30, 2018, and Teischan (12) is all set for the Advent. She has been counting the days for weeks! This afternoon she set up her old advent calendars from years past — along with the two, from this year, containing chocolates.
I got her a real nice wooden advent calendar today BUT, alas, she didn’t like it! So, I have put it up for sale. She, however, wants the money.
“Global Citizen Festival — Mandela 100”, From South Africa, Broadcast On MSNBC This Sunday, Dec. 2, 2018.
Another gala extravaganza to commemorate the GREAT Nelson Mandela’s centennial — i.e., ‘Mandela 100‘. It is, as it should be, in Johannesburg, South Africa. So, not something that most of us and pop down for.
But, MSNBC is broadcasting it, starting at 9pm, on Sunday, December 2, 2018. Definitely worth watching, recording or both. I plan to record it.
Did not want you to miss it.
I resisted getting the flu shot till around 2010. I was willing to roll-the-dice and take my chances. But, as I approached 60 I realized that I better pay heed to what the medical profession was advocating especially since I am very susceptible to infections.
So, far so good.
It does not get any easier or more convenient. And now they tout and honor a ZERO co-pay. So, no cost other than what they bill your insurance.
Very efficient. Very professional. Quite fast. Very little wait time. Today, they were rather buy and it took just over 30-minutes. Still easier than driving to an hospital.
Yes, I know that they don’t even KNOW what this winter’s flu virus is going to be!
Same story as last year and the year before.
The vaccine, quite literally, is a shot in the dark. Best guess, hope for the best, fingers crossed.
But in my old age and with very little blood cells, red or white, I can’t take any chances. This year for the first time I got the 65+ flu vaccine in my left arm, and for the first time ever, a pneumonia shot — the latter in the right arm. That way ‘they’ know which is which; ‘flu’ with an ‘l’ in it in the ‘l’eft arm. Clever.
