      Lateblum mentioned this the other day. The precedent this sets is horrendous. They really do just want to kill off a predetermined percent of the population and since covid apparently did not do the desired job the first three rounds they will just hammer away until they are satisfied. Because who really thinks anyone who has not been vaccinated (followed shortly by those who did not get booster in timely fashion) is not going to be said to have covid, regardless of the actual health problem, so they can justify wither withholding all treatment or the patient being stuck with the full bill for anything from childbirth to neurosurgery to trauma.

    December 8, 1980
    Just two months after his 40th birthday, John Lennon was murdered outside his home at the Dakota Apartment building on the northwestern corner of 72nd Street and Central Park West in New York.

    When we were turning on the heat at my friend’s new house, she tossed me a heated throw to keep me warm until the house warmed up. It was wonderful so I bought them for my kids and their spouses for Christmas. Last night I stupidly went outside without a coat to bring my laundry in off the line. I just couldn’t get warm again, and there on the table were 4 heated throws. My son and his wife’s are a matched pair, and my daughter’s has puppies all over it, but my son-in-law’s was easy to reorder so his became mine. The only problem with it is it’s too easy to just stay under it and binge TV. It’s big enough to puddle some of it on the floor. Hank has discovered it, but Ellie hasn’t yet. Hank hasn’t given her much opportunity. I bought the new one for my son-in-law a different color so it won’t be quite as obvious I stole the first one. 🙂

      Is it an e!ectric blanket? I need to get me something like that.

      • elliesmom says:

        Yes. They come in different sizes. I have tall men in my life so I opted for larger ones. They come in different fabrics. Whatever you choose for the top decorative side I recommend the other side be sherpa. So cuddly. They have different levels of controls, but they all have an automatic shut-off at some point.

        • DeniseVB says:

          They’re wonderful !

        • lateblum says:

          Oh yes! I bought both grandgirlies fleece plus sherpa throws for their Christmas presents. They both love to cuddle in their blankets so I thought throws would be nice for them to carry to different rooms in their house.

    • swanspirit says:

      I hate that feeling of not being able to get warm, and am happy you have the heated blankets. Sounds so cozy.
      In other news, my friend who lives in my neighborhood, and with whom I did the community garden, had her boyfriend who lived in Annapolis, move in with her a few months ago. I had been feeling sorry for myself, because a lot of the things she and I did together, activities, shopping, etc. she was doing with her boyfriend, which is fine, but I was feeling a tad bit left out. Nothing monumental, just a pinch.

      And I just couldn’t help feeling like the proverbial third wheel, no matter how much she reassured me, that was not the case. So I haven’t heard from her, or spent any time, other than Facebook, for about a month. Yesterday, she told me she and boyfriend were under the weather. Today, she just told me they have Covid. They have both been vaccinated, have fairly mild symptoms, and are both going to the hospital to get mono clonal antibodies, so I am anticipating they will both be fine. But it’s funny how some things work out.

      • elliesmom says:

        All of my female friends have husbands or partners so I know what you mean.

      • Mt.Laurel says:

        I understand completely.

        When my one aunt lost her husband she started feeling so uncomfortable being the fifth wheel even though, due to his work schedule, she had often technically been so before. She said it just felt so different being with her old network of friends and neighbors aS if her position had been slightly realigned and including her was often an afterthought.

    • lateblum says:

      When I’m cold like that, I bury myself under a faux fur throw that I bought several years ago. It was a real splurge at the time. It’s cozy and heavy and WARM. But if I have to be up and about when I’m chilled – and that happens when you live in a building that is over a century old – I put on my down jacket or coat and warm up right quick.
      I love feeling warm and toasty during the fall and winter.
      The electric throw is a wonderful gift idea.

      • Locked-N-Loaded says:

        When I am that cold, I throw some thick socks, sweat suit with hood, turtleneck and gloves into the dryer for a few minutes, then stand right in front of the dryer and put all the warm clothes on, feels sooo good!!

      • elliesmom says:

        My splurge when i remodeled a bathroom was a heated towel rack.

        • swanspirit says:

          I know people sing the praises of hanging clothes outside to dry, mostly in the summer. It is a wonderful smell, if there is no bird poop on it, but there really is something to be said for putting on warm clothes right out of the dryer. Especially in the winter.

      • Mt.Laurel says:

        It’s time like that I miss my childhood home. even with the very high ceilings, there were built in window seats right over the larger long radiators in several rooms where you could warm up while enjoying enjoy a good book. And of course, you could place you socks and gloves there so there were toasty warm when needed.

      Last weekend QVC had Irish knit vests on sale for $99. and of course I had to have one. It just looked so cozy. Nothing helps the chills like walking around and since I moved to the condo I can walk the halls and the staircases. It’s now getting dark in Seattle at 4:15pm and it’s always the evening when I get cold.

      • lateblum says:

        You’re right about moving around. Sometimes I forget to do that when I’m so comfy under the “fur” throw. Did you already get the knit vest? I hope it helps keeps you cozy.

      Good luck with that because most Patriots who were organizing were likely using burner phones to do it.

    Tucker also interviewed the couple.

  15. elliesmom says:

    Today on our walk we stopped to talk to a neighbor who has 3 kids, 12, 9, and 7. When I can sincerely do it, I always compliment well-behaved children. Her kids are sweethearts. She told me when the local school shut down over covid, she checked out the local Catholic K-8 school. If she signed a two-year contract, they’d accept all 3 kids. Full tuition for kid #1, half for #2, and #3 goes for free. She said, while our local school is fine, she loves that the Catholic school does a better job of reinforcing the behavior she and her husband expect at home. The kids are expected and encouraged to act like they’re family at school. The 12 year old is expected to watch out for his little brother and sister because “that’s what families do”. Now that the family has adjusted to paying the tuition, they aren’t going back to public school. Parochial schools had been on a decline here, but I wonder if they’ll be making a comeback?

    • 1539days says:

      My Catholic high school closed to grades 7-12 after consolidating to all 12 grades + kindergarten in 2013. You have to go about 20 minutes away for a Catholic high school. You can enroll your kids in a Catholic school even if you’re not Catholic, but there are discounts for belonging to a parish. What’s really bad is to look at how much a “public” education costs compared to a parochial one, even including the few services provided by the state to non-public schools.

      • elliesmom says:

        I sent my daughter to Catholic school for grades 7 and 8, and neither one of us was Catholic. She was doing more than fine academically, but she was socially immature in the town we were living in at the time. Her guidance counselor suggested retaining her in 6th grade so she could have a “growing up year”. We liked her just the way she was. It was OK with us if she still played with Barbie at 11. So we tucked her away where she wouldn’t stifled academically and where playing with Barbie was normal. It was one of the best decisions we ever made as parents.

          We actually have several hijab-wearing mothers at our Catholic school. Because it’s the only place in town to get a good education.

      Again. Telling people to get vaccinated when THEIR OWN DATA shows that an unvaxxed person who gives COVID to a vaxxed person rarely leads to a bad outcome while vaxxed people spread it so readily they’re not even called breakthrough infections anymore.

      Not vaccinating ONLY has individual consequences. Why force people to do it?

    Hillary offers a “masters class” where she reads her never used victory speech from 2016 while reading. How strange. Who would do something like this?
