COVID-19 vaccine

I have been asked My Thoughts on the vaccines:
You know, some folks still believe that this virus isn’t that bad. Even with all the evidence, along with the millions that have died from it. Makes me wonder how they can justify that in their minds. At any rate, it should be noted that there isn’t any way that we know of, in avoiding getting infected, whether you’re vaccinated or not. But. As hard as it is to believe by some, the Pfizer and Moderna Vaccines only train your immune system to understand and recognize that it is under attack, and if and when the virus does enter your body, and your immune system is working well, it is then ready to attack this virus, and … in most cases you will survive; and we are relatively assured that we won’t have a lot of problems down the road away with other complications. If you’re not vaccinated, the chances of having serious problems or even death is greatly increased. Some say well … I had the virus, and it was about as bad as a cold. Well … you’re one of the lucky ones, but the thing is, later on after you have had the virus, they are now finding that those that didn’t get vaccinated and had the virus is now having some serious problems with other things like lung problems, heart problems and so on. Off course, the unvaccinated will have a come back and say … you could have the same things happen if you do have the vaccines. In respect to their thinking, they are right. But with all the evidence now coming out from all over the world, the vaccines have proven that they have saved millions and millions of lives and slowed things down. The next thing is that those that aren’t vaccinated now have a greater chance than ever before of getting the virus, as it is rapidly seeking them out. Why is that? Simply put, it is on survival mode, and it will do anything it has to do to survive and the only way it can do that is find those that aren’t vaccinated or mutate inside those that aren’t vaccinated. At any rate, no matter how you look at things and with all the evidence that is out there today. I am happy my wife and family, and me are vaccinated. I would sooner take a chance which is almost nil having the vaccine than lying in the hospital gasping for air or for that matter spreading it to others and maybe even killing someone. My Opinion Only. Take care and stay safe. GW

Food Recall

Health Canada is recalling multiple brands of frozen mango because they may be contaminated with Hepatitis A.
The recall for Nature’s Touch, Compliments, Irresistible, and President’s Choice brand frozen mangoes was issued on July 30.

So I would suggest if you have any to get rid of them. I am hoping the rest of their produce is good, as my wife and I do eat a lot of frozen raspberries and blueberries. Hmm.

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.

Good Article, well written and says what is happening to a T. Click on link below to view. Have a great day. It is a nice day. At least here in Port Loring.

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.
