      I love Coleus. With the three day 108 heatwave that wiped out so many plants this summer the Coleus still looks beautiful. Surprisingly the angel wing begonias that were under a tree look good too. Of course the weeds are healthy as hell.

    Good Morning.

    Amazing!

      The Earth is constantly resculpting itself. Usually it’s doing it so slowly it’s not noticeable in one lifetime, but occasionally we get an opportunity to see it in action. There’s a new Hawaiian Island being formed. It’s been named Loihi. It’s currenty 3000 ft underwater, and it will be 50,000 years before anyone can build a hotel on it. The Atlantic Ocean is growing, and the Pacific Ocean is shrinking. The Himalayas are getting taller, and the Appalachians are disappearing. All of it is contributing to climate change. And there isn’t a damn thing humans can do about it.

    Married Michigan couple who were both fully-vaccinated but had underlying health conditions die of COVID just ONE MINUTE apart while holding hands

    An interview with two of the giants in mRNA technology people would find difficult to dismiss as quacks. An explanation of how masses of vaccinated people become the superspreaders of virus variants (with pictures for visual learners). An explanation of why limiting the vaccinations to just the vulnerable people would have kept the death and hospitalization rate about the same and have limited the variants. A prediction that we’re headed for an explosion in the number of people who become seriously ill from one of the variants. Vaccinated and unvaccinated. Vaccinating more people will only make it happen sooner. Since it’s unvaccinated people who tamp down the number and spread of variants, and we can’t unvaccinate people, the only way to put the brakes on the explosion is to introduce unvaccinated people to the population. These men suggest we’re going to need a baby boom, but I can think of a faster way to do it, can you?

    • Constance says:

      Stop vaccinating and use Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine. By the way some of you might remember that I ordered Ivermectin from River pharmacy after seeing that they would ship Ivermectin to the USA back in early September. I didn’t hear anything and the e-check didn’t go through until this week a day after I got a message saying their website crashed on Sept 8th and they have been both trying to bring it back up to functional and process the masses of orders they have received and they thought my order would be on the way in 4 weeks. Very sorry for the delay. I’ll let you know if it ever comes.

      I think of it like antibiotics. Doctors and vets gave them to everyone and everything early on. Then the bacteria fought back and mutated to antibiotic resistant strains. Now we’re at a stalemate. Doctors have to pick and choose how to prescribe them and tell patients how important it is to take the entire amount to fully kill off any survivors in the body.

      In this case, the gene therapy vaxx was designed to stop replicating and infecting cells to keep people from dying immediately. Instead, the spike protein exists in minimal amounts and the immunity wanes after 5-6 months. While that’s happening, people with the vaxx become incubators, neither killing nor being overtaken by the virus, and increasing viral loads until the body finally eats the COVID virus and the brand new variant has spread to the next person.

      • Constance says:

        I think the best thing that can happen for a vaccinated person is to ‘catch” Covid 19 within a month of being vaccinated so you can develop your own antibodies. I’m feeling like I won’t take the booster, I don’t see that it makes any difference and both of the first to shots made me sick. I have zinc, vitamin C and D and I have sent for 30 pills of Ivermectin. When that finally comes I’ll feel ready for whatever. Oh and I did order two of the oxygen meters you all were discussing yesterday. Thanks for the links.

    My vaccinated ex is in the hospital with possible appendicitis.

    Study shows 8/12 appendicitis cases studied (post vax I think?) arose in vaccinated group, but not disproportionate to population in general. I can’t go back and re-read because re-opening triggers paywall.

    Medical genius of the day. Today I had a routine follow-up appointment for an, ahem, cosmetic procedure that I did about five months ago. Doctor is a nice guy, never really pestered me about the vaccine too much, he has been vaccinated. Today, he asked me if I’d been vaccinated, I said no, and his response was, “Oh, then I’ll leave MY mask on to protect myself.”

    Um, weren’t we browbeaten into the masks for like a year and a half based on “MY MASK PROTECTS YOU?”

    I just smiled and said, “As you wish.”

    Most members of the National Guard have civilian jobs at the same time. It’s why they’re called “weekend warriors”. Presumably, if they’re medical staff in the Guard, they are medical staff in their civilian jobs, too. If the Governor of New York calls them up for active duty in hospitals, who’s going to replace them in their day jobs? Isn’t she just rearranging the deck chairs? (I know math is hard, but this one is easy. You can’t count a nurse twice.)

    • Constance says:

      Being Progressives they can’t puzzle that one out and they expect you to avert your eyes when their abject stupidity and failure hit you in the face.

    • 1539days says:

      Better yet, National Guard is grouped by state, so they probably work in New York ALREADY.

    • Mothy67 says:

      Bush screwed over the Guard after 9/11. My brother was deployed to Germany for almost a year. When he was done my parents had to get legal help because they were using a clause saying he could be redeployed at any time. He had signed up for help with school. Just had a baby and bought a house. Going to art school part time. Had to let go of house and his family had to move in with in laws. For a fake war. No one in Congress lost a house. He had to quit art school and fight for 25,000 refund. He signed up for Air National Guard and got sent to Germany to handle supplies. It cost him tens of thousands at 22. Ever know anyone considering joining drop the dime and have an attorney look it over. You can get out of the recalled at anytime up to ten years if you have it changed before enlisting. They can still call you to active duty if there is an all out war, but they can’t pay you minimum wage to send toilet paper to Basra. He got a similar job with same company when he returned but it was an hour and a half away. He missed the first year of his daughters life. I get the argument you sign up you pay the piper. Thing was he signed up for National Guard. There was no extreme urgency to the homeland. Thousands of young men and women got screwed for nothing. Working class does not matter to elites. Steve was on track to be an art teacher. It took him 5 years to dig out of debt.

    Greenie energy leaves Europe in the cold — the freezing cold
    By Monica Showalter

    Turns out that’s crap. After going green and shutting down its coal, fossil fuel, fracking, and nuclear energy production, and feeling mighty virtuous for doing it, Europe is now going cold — freezing cold. The region faces a very bad winter ahead with energy shortages across the board. Seems green energy can do everything to make a lefty European feel good except produce the actual energy. So, courtesy of the phony prophets of greenie virtue, Europeans are going without, even as Joe Biden is doing his darndest to take America down that cliff

    • jadzia1971 says:

      Although I don’t love that we live in proximity to two nuclear power plants, I am happy that in France, which is very reliant on nuclear power, we probably aren’t gonna freeze this winter. Although I wouldn’t put it past our betters to cut off the electricity to the homes of unvaxxed plague rats.

    • Mt.Laurel says:

      This is on of the hot topics which delegates my boss, an old style D, from the bots. Well this and the fact he refused to vote for Biden. Having a 94 year old mother who was more competent sealed that deal. He loves to bait the directors of the two larger agencies who keep talking about solar power and battery cars on just why cost/gas/nuclear are all better options to you know not freeze or find oneself stranded in the middle of no where. Not to mention the energy those batteries use does not spring from a magic fountain.

      Dealing with mom and a wife with major health problems he has been staying clear of the office for a while so I get to be the one to ask if those useless cars they drive have blown up yet. They tried to say it was nothing but then new building management sent a notice that all electric and hybrid cars need to park in a separate area away from the buildings and other cars. Made my day.

  12. elliesmom says:

    Every July 1st I was handed a contract to sign for the next school year. Parts of the contract were personal to me like salary, accumulated paid sick leave, professional development credits, etc. Part of the contract were things negotiated by the union like the maximum number of students who could be assigned to my classes and the number of classes I would be expected to teach. The July 1st date is pretty universal, and I doubt any contract issued by a school system this past July had a vaccine mandate in it. Which would mean adding one, even if the mandate was coming from the state or the feds, would require renegotiating the contract with the union. Now based on the people I worked with, I don’t doubt schools could get enough teachers onboard to pass a contract that included mandatory vaccinations, but they wouldn’t do it without getting something else in return. Something they wanted but didn’t get the last time the union negotiated a new contract, which is typically every three years. Yet I have heard nothing from the media about negotiations over contracts with teachers’ unions- or nurses either, for that matter. An occasional lawsuit, yes.

    OK, I haven’t heard from my ex in five hours, despite his promise to keep me updated. Please allow me to be worried and stressed here without shaming me for being a “hand wringer” like my so-called friends do. Plus I’m keeping my mouth shut because kids aren’t home and I don’t want to alarm them.

    I’m going to try to reach him in an hour or so but if he’s getting medical attention I don’t want to be up in his grill all day. Probably he’s just sitting in the ER waiting to be seen but it’s been quite a while (and ERs here don’t tend to be an all-day thing the way they are in America).

    • jadzia1971 says:

      Kids ARE home. Jesus H. Christ.

    • Miranda says:

      Go ahead and be worried. I like to be kept updated too. Good luck!

    • Mt.Laurel says:

      Of course you are worried. ER and/or Hospitalization even without covid element is stressful. Ex or not. Add in the kids and it just increases exponentially. So vent.

      • jadzia1971 says:

        Well, it turns out that he does not have appendicitis. But they did find colon polyps, which if this were a routine screening (it’s not–they do routine screening at age 50 here, and he doesn’t turn 50 until November) with no symptoms, I would not think it’s a big deal.

        However, the hospital kept him overnight so that he can do further screening (a colonoscopy) and meet with a surgeon today.

        My mistake was to spend 20 minutes with Dr. Google last night looking up how serious this situation could be given the severe symptoms. No bueno–usually this stuff is symptomless and uncovered by a routine screening, but it’s more serious once you are at the “bad pain” stage emerging apropos of nothing. He has already informed me that he’s going to be out of commission for a week, whatever those tea leaves mean. Obviously I hope he is going to be okay, there are four kids involved, you know?

        • Mt.Laurel says:

          Dr Google can be dangerous. But it is hard not to look because it at least makes you feel like you are doing something.

          Sending prayers and positive thoughts.

          I am like my mother and have always had lots of pockets in the colon and it can hurt and bleed if they are irritated but not enough for ER. So far. A couple of the aunties tended more toward developing polyps along with the inherited tendency for pockets from and early age and they would be in pain when a new crop formed and often ended up at the ER. Both ended up with parts of the colon removed but lived for decades. So anecdotally, it can be serious but workable.

          • jadzia1971 says:

            Apparently he has some kind of bacterial infection that he says was given to him by the kids. He says he is very doped up, got a week off from work, and back in 2 weeks for a colonoscopy. Sounds like he will be OK.

    Off topic

    I was right. I have now joined so many of you in the high blood pressure r’us group and I start meds this week. This weekend I knew even before I got the script from my doc after submitting my two week monitoring results. Traffic was horrendous on the beltway coming home from work last Friday and I was stuck for hours due to an accident. Got home after 9:00 pm and was extra sore with arthritic back and knees very angry. Took Advil which I have always preferred for arthritis pain without thinking. Goodness the spike! Got no sleep.

    So I checked and my generic Tylenol is 500 and almost gone. I now have that big amazon bottle ya’ll have been discussing in my cart. So thanks Denise. I did indeed find that bit of info very useful.

    • lyn5 says:

      Hope you can laugh at this. My wrist cuff BP was 164/91 at the eye doc’s office on Friday afternoon. I told the doc and he said those cuffs aren’t accurate. OKaaaaaaay.

      • lateblum says:

        How funny…my BP was 166/70 yesterday at the surgicenter prior to my eye surgery. The nurse said the same thing about the cuff attached to a machine. She said she always prefers the manual BP cuffs. I’m pretty sure my BP was elevated yesterday because I was so stressed about having surgery.

    • Somebody says:

      Oncology told me to go see my GP because my BP has been so high. I went to GP last Friday with records. My BP in his office wasn’t too bad 143/71, it’s been much, much higher throughout treatment like 180/90.

      So he prescribed BP medication and told me to monitor my BP multiple times per day. I didn’t pick up my prescription until Sunday, but I started monitoring my BP Friday evening. My BP has been fine, the highest it’s been today is 127/70, it was 113/62 this morning. I haven’t started taking the BP medication yet because my BP is normal. I’m going to message the doctor and ask what to do.

      I know I have white coat syndrome, but apparently it’s really bad with oncologists.🤪 I think pain enters into it too, because they wouldn’t give me anything during radiation and chemo for pain, lest I become addicted.

      • Mothy67 says:

        I get white coat syndrome too. They brush it off and write me script. I never fill it. Been almost ten years.

      • Mt.Laurel says:

        Definitely talk to your doc. Those at home readings indicate BP meds might not be a good idea.

        I had readings that high on those prostate cancer drugs – off course when everyone around you keeps using phases like “available cancer therapies” and “limited GYN specific” and “off label” and reminders to avoid even aspirin/Advil/Aleve as the blood count was way too low already and before you know it that needle was going up and up and up. I joked that perhaps it was the company I was keeping (my gyn at the time has a very good bed side manner and a sense of humor). 💉🩸💊

    I have said this before. I ride the bus because I don’t drive. It is trash during non rush hour, but 7 to 8:30 It’s mostly black professionals going to work. I live but a hair from the city. Most of the busses run through. Intelligent, articulate, educated men and women who take the bus. It’s not awful during rush hour. There are actually bus only roads. Sucks non rush hour. It can take me an hour plus to get downtown mid day. It’s 20 minutes door to door during peak times. Anyhow I know mostly the men. Smart, family committed. Working. Busses suck but they do it everyday for decent professional jobs. It would be silly to drive. Parking is scarce and you get stuck. The busway has only busses.
    I find it so refreshing that Covid is allowing person’s of color to speak and be heard. I don’t know low IQ black people like Maxine and Sharpton. Joy Reid? I know hard working professionals. Seems like forever the only voices allowed were about oppression from unimaginative limited democratic tokens. It scares me how libs look at people of color. Pityis an ugly emotion and The Wire represents democratic policies not the world beyond ghettos. White guilt belongs solely to white elitists. Not upon me. Never since the escalator has a person with darker skin attacked me over a hat, karen’s and gay boys yell obscenities from cars rarely if ever to my face. Iget lots of black men in stores applauding my MAGA hat. My nemisis voted for Donald. She is white but her kids are black. Her daughter is high achieving. There’s no qualification that she’s black. My pup’s competition. Kier stays here all the time. Media creates pollution and nothing else.

  36. Mothy67 says:

    BP meds have to be watched very closely. I was put on propanolal a dozen years ago. I had baby brat at mini golf. Suddenly I was too tired to swing the club. I went to ER near death. My blood pressure was almost non existant. I never felt so tired in my life. I don’t fault MD. He saw 200/100 or something similarly alarming. White coat is not easily grasped by people who spent 8 years studying science. I was literally sawed open as a toddler my BP goes way up in a doctor’s office. So does my glucose. I get in office prick it’s 250+. I get home it’s 98. My A1c is a little over 7 250 is almost 14 A1c. I register 250 in the office. I appear calm, I feel robotic, but my subconscious is aware I am in a clinical place. I try to talk to docs and they can look at my bloodwork. It makes no sense to them that glucose can rise 150 points because I am in an office. I am not even aware I am upset. Ive always been treated. My BP right now is 123/80. My glucose within two hours post prandial is 106. I am not even prediabetic or high bp by standards. My numbers go off the charts when a medical professional is around. Fight or flight instinct? Just fun that they repeatedly tell me my glucose cannot spike as it does. They have said not possible. Not by 160. Betcha none remember a saw bifurcating them. My mom says I had nightmares about them sawing my chest open. I have vague memories. I don’t know what is real. Open heart then required a twilight. You couldn’t knock a kid out but they were put in a place.( Interesting I switched to third person?)
    I can’t expect a 24 year old intern to grasp my memories. It would be grossly unfair. He thinks white coat involves sitting alone for ten minutes and then rechecking. I feel numb when a doctor touches me. Ten minutes pause won’t change that. I was told I had to get insulin with every meal and a shot at bedtime. Ten days in hospital my glucose would not go under 250. One day out no meds it was 98. The mind is a powerful thing.
