      I think Swine Flu is included in the annual Flu shots ? This article is about a year old, but I don’t think anyone died of Swine this past year?

        Actually H1N1 has been circulating for awhile. It had a noticeable resurgence during the 2019-2020 flu year. I remember reading a lot of criticism about the covid testing and the fact that it couldn’t differentiate flu or covid. H1N1 is more serious for children and younger people than covid. I have no idea if it is or was included in the annual flu shot.

    Interesting news here in JAX. Former Congresswoman Corrine Brown’s conviction on tax and fraud charges has been overturned by the 11th circuit in a 7-4 vote. The conservative block of the court voted to overturn her conviction on religious grounds, that is what makes it interesting, plus the Obama angle🤔

    The crux of the matter is that the judge in her case dismissed a juror. The juror had made a comment that the holy spirit had told him not to convict Brown. He was called in and questioned by the judge, clearly understood the facts of the case and jury instructions, but repeated his belief that the holy spirit told him not to convict Brown. He was dismissed by the judge and replaced with an alternate. So that’s the religious angle. In January 2020, a 3 judge panel of the 11th circuit voted to uphold the conviction, but en banc of the entire circuit voted 7-4 to overturn yesterday.

    Brown had been grifting since forever, but nothing ever seemed to stick, although she had been under investigation several times. Obama’s justice department charged her with 22 counts on Obama’s way out the door. I’ve always felt it was payback, Brown was a Clinton loyalist and didn’t support O until after the convention. She was the lone congressional black caucus hold out if I recall correctly. She served 12 terms in Congress, but was defeated in 2016. She had an indictment hanging over her head and her district changed due to redistricting.

    She was tried and convicted in early 2017, but didn’t report to prison until December 4, 2017 for a five year term. She was released due to covid last year and remanded to house arrest. I think she was on house arrest prior to reporting to prison too. I remember hearings where she was trying to avoid prison due to health, she wanted house arrest while awaiting appeals. So if you add up prison and house arrest time she served 4 years out of 5. It will be interesting to see if the Garland justice department goes after her with a new trial.

    Worst spring evere here. Cold and damp. Feels like late fall. Won’t hit 60’s until the 15th. Ugh
    My new gym is a half an hour walk. I can’t seem to muster the energy to go. Trying to be grateful that I can beat high glucose, but really don’t feel like walking in the rain. Ugh again.

    • elliesmom says:

      We’ve had a lot of cold, damp days, too. I check the hourly weather reports for the warmest part of the day to walk Ellie. Unless it’s a deluge, I still walk her. It’s bright and sunny today and approaching 60 this morning. I’ve had three days I could take my lunch outside. Breakfast is my favorite to take out, but the temps haven’t come anywhere close yet. My goal date for turning the heat off completely is May 15th every year. It’s only coming on at night now so I might make it. May 15th is also usually about the time I have to mow the lawn for the first time. That mark is one I’ll hit for sure.

      • Somebody says:

        May 15th, first grass cutting. We don’t deal with snow in Florida, the trade off being year round yard work. We usually catch a break on mowing in January, but not always. We also fight weeds and bugs virtually year round. Plus the assorted reptiles that find our climate amenable😉

      • foxyladi14 says:

        David has mowed the lawn,3 times already.
        But the furnace is on right now.

        We’ve got the same crappy weather here. I’m putting together a nice home gym but I had surgery a few weeks ago and today I found out that I actually am supposed to OBEY my doctor’s advice to not work out for a month. Ooops. So I’m just trapped here in my house, getting fatter for another 2 weeks.

        • John Denney says:

          Dynamic tension may work for you, if you avoid stressing the surgery site.
          It’s not aerobic, & any opposing set of muscles can be specifically targeted. You can do it sitting, standing, or lying down, as long as you can move those muscles through their full range.

          I do it with Tai Chi movements while walking around the block. In 10 minutes, I’m breathing hard & sweating. Neighbors thought I was weird at first, but now at least one says it looks very graceful and she wants to learn. 🙂

          It works. I went snow skiing for the 1st time in 15 years a few weeks ago, skiing all day long for 3 days straight, with no muscle soreness, keeping up with 3 30 year old guys who ski every week-end. Back at the condo at the end of a day’s skiing, I cooked dinner for us all most nights, and they said it was the best they’d ever eaten on a ski trip. 🙂

        Wow. I’ve mowed the lawn 4 times already in Seattle and I’m not on top of it by any means. We’ve had a warm beautiful spring and I have actually had to water the plants and lawn a few times it’s been so dry. That is unheard of here, it’s customary to rake out the moss that’s in the lawn in April and throw out fresh grass seed. You don’t have to do anything because it usually rains so much a new lawn just happens.

    • Somebody says:

      So if it is raining improvise. Go up and down the stairs at a good pace for 30 minutes or more. Find a clear spot and jump rope if you have a jump rope. Just do something to get a little exercise. Do you have any dumbbells or elastic bands? If so do a little something with those, lots of routines out there just do a search. Heck you can use canned goods as light weights. You really should have some kind of backup for rainy days or busy days when you can’t make it to the gym. There are a myriad of home exercise routines, find something that interests you or just freestyle something. Turn on some music and dance, it’ll lift your spirits AND get you exercise.

    Arizona’s Maricopa County is refusing to turn over routers or router images to election auditors, defying a judge’s ruling.

    The Maricopa County Attorney’s Office informed former Republican Secretary of State Ken Bennett of the decision this week. Bennett is the Arizona Senate’s liaison for the audit.

    Watch to the end when the School Board Pres shuts her down. Chilling. This is Fairfax County in Northern People’s Republic of Virginia 😉 Great supportive comments and if I were allowed to comment I’d tell her I missed the days when School Boards feared the parents when they weren’t bought and paid for by the Teacher’s Unions. I graduated from the FCPS in 1964 ❤

      Shitty public servants living off the public’s money serving no member of the public. I would not have stepped away, let them call
      Security, then I’ll walk out…. I hope that parent runs against these gargoyles, and continues to speak about their atrocities.

    I used to say that if I ever committed a crime and got caught, I was going to say I am Al Sharpton’s cousin here illegally from Syria and my sharia law is great then you laws.
    Now I am going to say I am a friend of Hunter bid-on

    Elliesdad, who couldn’t fix anything himself if his life depended on it, used to say I was too quick to replace something instead of repairing it. Well, the lights in my bug zapper both stopped working. Not both at once. You can’t just pop out the bulbs and replace them because the “zapper” part of it stays electrfied for quite awhile after you turn it off. (Ask me how I know that. 🙂 ). I debated whether to buy new bulbs again. They’re about $18 dollars for two and a new zapper is around $40. The zapper is over 5 years old because I bought it at the old house when I had a fruit fly infestation. It’s not nice to speak ill of the dead so we won’t talk about where the flies came from. I heard his voice in my head saying, “This is silly. You know you can fix this. You’ve done it several times before.” So I unplugged the zapper and ordered the bulbs. They arrived this morning. I put them in, and nothing happened. So I ordered a new bug zapper. I should have told ED to get out of my head and shut up.

    The whole “Rosebud” business in Citizen Kane is about William Randolph Hearst (who btw had a very big brain) making Garbo with Rose Rothschild. When Orson Welles made Citizen Kane in 1941, he was also producing faking Pearl Harbor at Kaufman-Astoria. Busy year. Anyway Orson had made Jack Nicholson with Garbo four years earlier. Garbo was literally “Rosebud”.

      “Stand Your Ground Case”….not really……it’s a case of use of deadly force in “highly defensible property” Florida law:

      776.013 Home protection; use or threatened use of deadly force; presumption of fear of death or great bodily harm.
      …..
      “(a) The person against whom the defensive force was used or threatened was in the process of unlawfully and forcefully entering, or had unlawfully and forcibly entered, a dwelling, residence, or occupied vehicle,….”

    I got my mom the Fit King foot massager for M day. Love it. 20 minutes of warm air, compression , and shiatsu (sp?) Massage. It feels good but it doesn’t as its happening, but afterwards it feels great. It’s a foot massage.
