Who knew about that 4th vaccine dose?!

Although I rarely watch CNN, I happened to tune in yesterday morning via the Pluto streaming channel and learned that the CDC had recommended a 4th vaccine for immune compromised people like Moi. The gist of the conversation on CNN was that the public was largely unaware of the CDC’s recommendation because the language concerning it is confusing.

Which explained the otherwise mysterious little red alert in my health company app related to an overdue Covid-19 vaccine. Made an appointment for next week and selected Moderna, even though my first three shots were Pfizer. Fingers crossed!

Wasn't there a special maneuver that would allow

a bill passed in the House to be passed in the Senate by a simple majority vote?

Apple ID Question

Awhile back I changed my Apple ID on my computer to reflect a different email address. I thought I did the same thing on my iPhone, but my phone gives my old email as my Apple ID. I don’t even remember my previous password and now I’m worried that if I try changing my phone ID and password I’ll somehow lock myself out of my phone or otherwise mess things up.

Any insights and/or advice would be appreciated.

Interesting chart on mask protection!

N95 Respirator Cleaning and Reuse Methods


N95 Masks Can be Rotated, 1 Mask Every 3–4 Days

Use 3–4 masks, numbered on the outside as 1–4, for each day. They can be used each day in numerical order. All SARS-CoV-2 viruses on the mask will be dead in 3 days (2). Masks should be kept at room temperature (21–23°C [70–73°F]) and 40% humidity. There is no change in the mask's properties.

N95 Masks Can be Heated at 70°C (158°F) for 60 Min

Masks will retain 98.5% FE after heating for 24 h, and masks may be heated multiple times without a loss of FE. Hang the mask in an oven using plastic or wooden clips. If the mask contacts or is < 6” from hot metal, there may be severe material compromise and charge loss. For damaged elastic bands, equivalent elastic may be restapled onto the mask.

Boris Johnson Is Revealing Who He Really Is

I may need to take up smoking.



Undeterred Undeterred by the pandemic, Mr. Johnson has been quietly pursuing that agenda. But instead of reforming the country’s creaking democracy and shoring up Britons’ rights, he and his lieutenants are doing the opposite: seizing control for themselves and stripping away the freedoms of others. A raft of bills likely to pass this year will set Britain, self-professed beacon of democracy, on the road to autocracy. Once in place, the legislation will be very hard to shift. For Mr. Johnson, it amounts to a concerted power grab.

Amazon Streaming Question

Last week I watched The Firm (1993) and it was “Included with Prime”. Then I searched for other movies based on John Grisham novels and there was a rental fee of $3.99. Okay, but I just searched for The Firm and now there’s a $3.99 rental fee.

So, am I being charged based on my past viewing preferences?
