Good Morning! It’s a cloudy day here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada, It is a touch cool, with the temperature getting out of bed sitting at 3.6 C | 38.48 F. It will remain cloudy, and we could see a few showers off and on for the next two days. By the looks of things we won’t see much sunshine until the weekend. Not much we can do about it, other than get some work done that needs to be done inside. That’s what I am planning on doing. Yesterday I did get outside and put in another few feet of under drainage pipes, by my shop that I have been wanting to do for the past few years. It was a job being that I was digging in wet clay. But it is done, and now we will see if I get rewarded for my work. The soil is sure wet right now. I also rearranged my firewood pile getting it ready for my new wood we ordered. I don’t know, but it always makes me feel good seeing it piled high and dry throughout the summer months. Maybe it is because I know my family will be warm come winter, no matter what. If there is one thing I have always done all my life, it’s keeping the freezer and cupboards full of food and lots of fuel for the winter. No one in our family has ever gone hungry, and they always had clean sheets to sleep on, thanks to my lovely wife. And you know. It wasn’t because we were rich neither. On another note being the kind of day it is, I am planning on writing up a few more stories for my columns in the newspapers I write for. One thing is for sure it keeps the mind active and sharp. With that, take care and stay safe. This virus isn’t getting better yet. I should mention for those that have sent me emails and letters … that yes my wife and I are going to get the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine. Actually we will be getting on April the 6th. I still believe in natural medicines, I am not shying away from them. Especially vitamin D 3, but I also realize, that there are a lot of good medicines out there that are made by some fantastic scientists.
What are the ingredients in the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine?
The Pfizer BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine is a messenger RNA (mRNA) vaccine that has both synthetic, or chemically produced, components and enzymatically produced components from naturally occurring substances such as proteins. The vaccine does not contain any live virus. Its inactive ingredients include potassium chloride, monobasic potassium, phosphate, sodium chloride, dibasic sodium phosphate dihydrate, and sucrose, as well as small amounts of other ingredients.
The only Active ingredient is 30 mcg of a nucleosidemodified messenger RNA (modRNA) encoding the viral spike (S) glycoprotein of SARS-CoV-2.
This is the only active ingredient in the vaccine.
The mRNA — messenger RNA technology — sends tiny snippets of genetic code to cells, telling them to build proteins. In this case, it triggers the immune system to produce protective antibodies without using actual bits of the virus. “Old-fashioned” types of vaccines, required scientists having to express it in cells or chicken eggs to get the proteins right.
There is nothing in it that I can see that would do you any harm. I like it, as it is the newer model of the way of going about things. It is the road to the future. And yes there are going to be some hurdles that have to be worked out. But right now, it is the only thing we have in our arsenal to combat this virus. Anyways we have made our decision and my instincts says it is the right thing to do. Take care my friends and stay safe. GW
