Stepping up to the plate

My son said one time; Dad, that’s why I liked Star Trek
The ship’s doctor could override the captain

A little common sense, save a bunch of lives. I agree with him whole heartily.

Unvaccinated people do more than merely risk their own health.

Morning Chat May 8/2021

Good Morning! It’s a bit cloudy here in Port Loring, Ontario this morning. And it is also a bit cool with the temperature getting out of bed sitting at 3.7 C | 38.66 F. It will warm up as the day moves forward. We should see some sunshine off and on throughout the day. Highway 522 is picking up these days, with campers, trucks you name it moving up and down the highway. So much for the stay at home order. It also looks like my lovely wife and I might have to do some grass cuttin’ this week by the looks of things. It is getting a bit long. The dandelions are showing off with flowers everywhere. I am thinking it is time to pick a couple and make a tea. They are a very healthy plant to eat, or make a tea from. We just pull a small one, and my wife washes it good and drops it into a pot of boiling water. Say around three cups. Let it set for ten minutes, and it’s ready to drink. What could be simpler than that. On another note, my wife and I went to North Bay and had our first shot of the vaccine last Thursday. Everything went well, and I was surprised at how well they handled things on the safety end of things. Once you park your car they take care of everything. On the side effect and needle part of things neither one of us felt anything, and it’s been three days since we had it. Other than maybe a bit of a sore arm where they administered the vaccine, when I laid on it through the night. Other than that things are good. It’s not a 100% guarantee, but it should save our life if we do happen to catch it. But not right away maybe in three weeks or so. As it takes time for the body to get things up to par now that it knows what to look for which is what the vaccine does. It makes the body aware of what is taking place. Pretty amazing really. The second shot will bring the bodies antibodies up even more to where it can fight it a lot better. But that won’t be until August. I am kind of hoping that they move that date up a bit. We will have to see what they do. The vaccine my wife and I had, was the Pfizer. After all my research I have come to the conclusion for now, the Pfizer or the Moderna is the best there is. It is a newer way of doing things which I believe is the way of the future, and you know … I have a feeling that we will soon be able to take a vaccine that will stop most of all our cancers. Now wouldn’t that be nice. One other note that should be addressed is I haven’t found any ingredient in the Pfizer or the Moderna that can harm you. It is basically made up with Salts, Oils and Sugar, along with the mRNA. Also known as messenger, mRNA is the only active ingredient in the vaccine. The mRNA molecules contain the genetic material that provide instructions for our body on how to make a viral protein that triggers an immune response within our bodies. The immune response is what causes our bodies to make the antibodies needed to protect us from getting infected if exposed to the coronavirus. With that, I am off for my morning bowl of oatmeal, and will then head on off to the dump. Things have been piling up here for the past week or so. Take care and stay safe it is getting terrible out there with more deaths every day here in Ontario. I am hoping a lot of more people will start seeing that this virus, is … very dangerous.

Interesting but understandable

U.S. set to begin sharing its entire stock of 60 million doses of AstraZeneca-Oxford COVID-19 vaccines. And they aren’t using it for their people.

Hearing that; it sure sends up red flags around this Vaccine. I think we all have to take a serious look at things before using. My Opinion only!

Close the damn Schools

And this isn’t enough information to close the schools. Man I have to shake my head in disbelief.

The Ministry of Education reported another 518 school-related cases confirmed between last Friday and yesterday afternoon, including 440 students, 77 staff members and one person who was not identified. A total of 58, or about 1.2 per cent of Ontario’s 4,828 publicly-funded schools, are closed due to the illness.

Vaccines Explained

I think everyone should listen and watch this video relating to the vaccines. Makes a lot of sense to me and my family.

Nearly 200,000 Ontarian’s aged 80 and older have not signed up for a COVID-19 vaccination. The reason for this is, that a few of us older folks are a lot more conscientious about the vaccines than others. My feelings on the subject, is to give the Seniors the opportunity, to pick and choose what vaccine they want. In doing so, I am sure there will be a lot more that will get it. I know I will …. but not till I can choose.

More COVID Cases in North Bay Ontario Canada

North Bay Extends the stay at home order in North Bay until March 8/2021. And then they will see after that. I think it is the best thing they could have done. Especially now with the new virus among them, along with it now spreading into Cassellholme North Bay, Walmart, an apartment building complex and a Bank. I suspect there are a lot more cases yet to be found. They should also close the schools down. Truth be told they should have never opened them, as the kids were just getting used to working from home. Kids adapt to what ever takes place. Slowing this virus down is a lot more important than going to school. It’s not forever, its just till the vaccines start rolling in. If they don’t close down and try to keep everyone from shopping there won’t be any places … to shop. Simple as that. Take care, and do what you have too, to stay safe. Even then it’s a challenge.
