I basically agree with you, especially the need for nursing home employees to be

vaccinated, and that the work is not highly skilled.
However, 2 points need to be made:
1. In my state, and I suspect in many others, a certificate is required for completion of a course called Certified Nursing Assistant before being employed as a nursing aide. I understand the course can be as little as 2 weeks, but still is a requirement.

2. Even though the work is not highly-skilled work, it is not easy work and many people are not temperamentally suited for the work. I imagine many are not physically fit enough as well. I could give you paragraphs about these points, but not at this time.

Saw him on the Arts TV network the other night - the one that shows

excerpts of old performers.

It sounded great...

St. Oscar Romero's feast day is today; 41 years ago he was assassinated while celebrating Mass.

He was archbishop of San Salvador, and an advocate for the poor and oppressed.

Most nights - ca 1 oz. bourbon, 1 packet of sweetener, a squeeze of lemon juice

and 6 -8 oz. hot water.
Relax in recliner and sip slowly until glass is empty.

I have the 7-day box, with morning & night, but still get messed up every so often.

Problem is- when you take the same pills every morning and night for years, it becomes so routine you sometimes do not even pay attention to what is going into your mouth.
3 morning pills, 5 at night, one other, plus several supplements that aren't in boxes.

In early Feb. I had to pay $471 for one prescription of 60 pills, which is frequently advertised on TV. That satisfied my annual prescription deductible. Just got a renewal prescription - only $42. I take one each morning and one each night.

Aren't cherry blossoms due in D. C. very soon - about one month?

Unfortunately, a weak field.

Mostly Dems, one independent.
They will run in a primary and the strongest two will run against one another.
No one there who will help make Ohio a Dem. state.
In the past, Cincinnati had strong mayors, selected by the council.
Now, direct election of mayor, and great candidates have not been attracted.

Go to Youtube and click on Sing A Longs

Great fun singing the old and the new.
Or click on Frank Sinatra or Tony Bennett and join in.

Arguing with dumbheads is not worth the breath it takes.

I was back at my parish church for Mass for the first time in a year this weekend.

Everything was right for me: two vaccines, sunny day, feeling well.
I plotted my day to go to Saturday afternoon Mass.
Parked fairly easily, found the interior as I had been told - every other pew blocked off.
Crowd light compared to last year.
Instead of persons taking the collection, a central basket was in the center near the entrance to the church.
Large hymnals replaced by selections printed in the bulletin.

However, I felt an interior joy, excitement mixed with peace, to be back in this "home for my soul".
I feel I've aged a lot during this lost year - slower and not as steady afoot.
But I'm back in the familiar place where I was baptized so many decades ago, and where my spouse and I brought our children each Sunday throughout their formative years.

Life will be good again.
