I Got My 2020 Flu Shot Today — At ‘Goodwin Community Health’ In Somersworth.

by Anura Guruge


I typically like to wait till closer to Thanksgiving. But, last year I had it on the 8th. This year the 9th. In both instances only because I happened to be at — or close — to my “doctor’s”.

Today, I had to have a mini-physical ahead of my cataract surgery on November 25. 2020. They asked me whether I had the shot — & if not, if I wanted it. It is always easier & quicker to get it at your doctor’s. They have the paperwork & they worry less about ‘interactions’ since they ‘know’ your ‘record’.

So, I had it done. It really was painless. Did NOT feel it. Noticed a slight discomfort for a few minutes many hours later. But, even that is gone.

Wearing A ‘Red Poppy’, With Pride & Respect, For ‘Remembrance Day 2020’ — November 9.

Still ahead of 11/11. My first time in public of late. SMILE. Yes, one of my Canadian ‘red poppies’ and I am cool with that since this now time-honored tradition is all due to Canadians. The truth be told, when it comes to the paper ones, I only have Canadian poppies. That is OK. I do need to get some U.K. ones with the green leaf and the more pronounced black ‘button’.

Nobody but nobody commented on it. 98% of Americans have absolutely NO CLUE as to what it is and what it signifies though Americans fought in both Wars — though they were not at ‘Flanders Field‘ in 1915. I would love to see America adopt the custom. I have tried. I wrote to President Obama asking whether he would please wear one on Veterans Day.

Well, as I do every year, I set out to honor the fallen and keep the memory fresh and alive.

COVID-19 Vaccine From Pfizer … 90% Efficacy … BUT, Did Both Test Groups Have Same Exposure To Virus?

by Anura Guruge


Something about these results continue to nag me. I can’t find a statement as to how the WHOLE 43,538 sample was SUBJECTED to the same level of COVID exposure.

What keeps NAGGING at me. What if the PLACEBO GROUP had MORE exposure to COVID infection than the ‘vaccinated’ group. I just can’t, at first read, get an idea as to how the whole sample was exposed to infection.

Do you get what I am getting at?

If the level of EXPOSURE was different — or worse still RANDOM — in my eyes this means diddly (& I do have some background in data analysis).

I could be wrong.

I am not CONVINCED.

I always want FACTS & PROOF. That is my training, background & druthers. SMILE.

PLEASE help me IF you can? Just point me to the FACTS. Thank YOU.
