I salute you. Wish you could be cloned and sent all over the USA.

You're doing the work of angels.

How terrible! So very sorry this happened to people dear to you.

May all be well for your cousin/brother.
May your extended family deal with this tragedy in the best way for all concerned.

Presuming she does not contract Ebola, which is a good presumption, Christie will come to

regret this decision, if he ever wants to run for another office.
The optics are terrible.

I had to laugh yesterday when I stopped at the mini-nurse station in Kroger

and asked obliquely about a flu shot.
The sweet young thing said "For people over 65 we recommend going to the pharmacy because they give a stronger dose there."

Well, I'm unknown in the mini-nurse station, but, obviously I'm no longer fooling anyone about my age anymore.
I'm well past 65, but have felt pretty good that people usually have said when they know I'm well past 70, "You don't look it".

I guess even that phase is ending.

Necco wafers and other old-time candies (ex. Walnetto's) are available

from the Vermont Country store, along with a lot of items not found elsewhere.
I have bought trouser-stretchers for my slacks - eliminates ironing, as well as night-caps - the kind worn on the head if it tends to get cold overnight. Also Ship'n'Shore blouses, Lanz nightgowns, and many more.

I just love to browse through their catalogue.

Me too. Almost picked up a pack yesterday, but reason intervened.

All those caramel, chewy things are yesterday's memories, as far as I'm concerned, like swinging on a vine in the woods. - Gone forever.

Don't you just hate it when you have no choice

of Dem. candidates for local offices?

We usually have, and do in this election as well, no Dem. candidates for many of the judgeships. Apparently recruiting for those offices is very difficult, as the Ham. Co. courthouse is stacked with Republicans, though Dems have made headway in recent years for some county offices, including sheriff, auditor and coroner.

Due to our gerrymandered Congressional districts, the opposition for incumbent House Representatives are unknown names and unlikely to make much headway. I do give the lesser known candidates credit, though, for stepping up and representing those of us who would like to see a change in our House delegation.

Hamilton County - I voted all Dem today, except one write-in.

It was easy to vote for all the Dems statewide.
I needed a cheat sheet to make sure I had all the Dem-endorsed judges right. That was easy, too, as the Ham. Co Dems sent out a list.

The write-in was for county commissioner. The endorsed candidate had been asked to step aside when a sitting Repub. commissioner decided against putting a levy request on the ballot for repair of our venerable Music Hall; the initiative had been worked on by a large contingent of businessmen, headed by our now Head of Veterans Affairs, Bob McDonald, recently President of P&G.

The dummy Dem, who has never run for office before, refused to step side for a more seasoned candidate, who would have a better chance, in light of the Repub's vote, to win the seat and turn the County commission blue.
