    I always get the shot, but this year, I was motivated to be first in line. The earlier in the season shots have to have more impact.

    I think a lot of respiratory viruses are not circulating as easily due to the measures put in place to stop Covid.  My one concern would be whenever I don't get sick for a long time, I tend to get hit pretty hard when I finally do get sick.

    So do I  when put on the spot, but I promise you I am far more there than Trump who on several occasions couldn't string together a sentence. It is pretty obvious that the naysayers were surprised by Bidens acumen during the debates.

    The House passed a Covid relief bill in May 2020.  It was RepubliQan Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell who held up the bill in the Senate.  I guess that makes him the dumb B.

    Good thing Trump wasn't president then, or we might still be trying to figure out who attacked pearl harbor without implicating our good friend Hirohito.

    I have had more than my usual share of colds since March of last year, including one bad enough that I was tested for strep (no, just a cold).
     
    On the other hand, no hay fever which was a bonus!

    I wanted to mention that I personally have not had any flu or cold-like symptoms (fever, running nose/congestion, etc) since January 2020. So it seems that mask wearing and distancing and other measures have personally worked for me in terms of staving off any kind of cold or flu. That was also the last time I flew on an airplane, and way back before the mask madness broke out, I opted to wear a mask so as not to infect other people on the plane, haha. I think I freaked everyone out by wearing a mask back then!
     
    I've also been using this honey propolis throat spray that I was skeptical about, but it seems to have helped a lot. Whenever I felt my throat was slightly sore, I just hit it with the spray.

    The release of the report by the Biden administration was a sign that the new president will try to isolate Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
     
    WASHINGTON — Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman of Saudi Arabia approved the plan for operatives to assassinate the journalist Jamal Khashoggi in 2018, according to a previously classified intelligence report released on Friday by the Biden administration.
    Much of the evidence the C.I.A. used to draw its conclusion remains classified, including details from recordings of Mr. Khashoggi’s killing and dismemberment at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul that were obtained by Turkish intelligence. But the report does outline who carried out the killing, describe what Prince Mohammed knew about the operation and lay out how the C.I.A. concluded that he ordered it and bears responsibility for the death of Mr. Khashoggi.
    The release of the report also signaled that President Biden, unlike his predecessor, would not set aside the killing of Mr. Khashoggi and that the Biden administration intended to attempt to isolate the crown prince, although it will avoid any measures that would threaten to break ties to the kingdom.

    It's is actually our reaction to Covid that is causing flu to decrease. Specifically, that is wearing masks, distancing, staying home when sick, monitoring symptoms, shields and covered areas in grocery, and increase in sanitization. Also the human petri dish factories known as schools have been on virtual or reduced class sizes, as well as following all the other precautions. Occam's razor here. There is nothing unusual or unexplainable. You implement methods to prevent spread of respiratory viruses and you reduce spreading.
     
      We have seen a decrease in flu testing recently simply because there is none going around. Doctors aren't ordering the test because it wastes patients money. The standard test detects viral antigen in transport media for at least 1 week (verified) and probably longer so it isn't being missed. It's just not there.
     
       I don't want to wear masks forever, but making sick people stay home should become a thing. Our overall sick time is way down this year, and the number one reason is nobody coming in sick coughing sneezing and getting the whole department sick all fall and winter.
