I have a sudden and significant heart murmur...

Öit developed in two weeks. Waiting for cardiologist but could tell my doctor was really freaked out.

Iím pretty freaked out but it reinforces my thinking that I had Covid before the lockdown. I developed type 2 diabetes in 2021 and now this.

Iím on bed rest until my next round of tests. I may have to do more than lurk and read.

Anyone with it, too? Advice? Iím 51 and the only child caregiver for my 90-year-old Dad.

My 89-year-old dad has Covid

We all tried so hard to keep him safe. But he forgot his mask when he went to the store.

He was in pain yesterday and called for help. It apparently triggers his shingles nerve damage and it was so bad I wondered if he was having a heart attack or just needed to go to the ER. But, knowing he was triple vaxxed and careful and from being around him all the time - I didnít mask at his house. Forced him to the drive through testing and dammit if he doesnít have it. 😳

Now Iím quarantined at his house with his grumpy a$$.

Aside from his pain, he says itís like a bad cold. So thatís good.

Just ironic that weíve tried so hard to keep him safe and heís the Typhoid Mary that will have given it to me. I get tested tomorrow. 🤦‍♀️

I got my Fauci Ouchie!

Made me super dizzy and lightheaded at first. It went away quickly.

One down, one to go. But Iím already so relieved!

Cowboy poets

Hello all! Iím a writer and horrible at poetry (although I do enjoy reading it) but Iím working on a play about a cowboy poet. Most of the poems will be from a singer/songwriter and are complete. But Iím trying to absorb as much as I can on my end of this genre.

Does anyone have a poet or a compilation they favor that you could recommend?

One of my clients is a restaurant and while I have food staging experience and some decent equipment- Iím struggling with the light and glare in the restaurant for photography.

Iím no photography expert. IíM a writer doing social media. Iím barely above novice but itís the only client I am struggling with. I canít use a box or go shoot after hours so thereís less glare. And client wants environmental photos showing itís taken in the dining room.

Spent forever trying to shoot this.

This one ok.

But compared to my other clients, itís a struggle. Without a huge investment in more equipment- ideas?

WaPo - UK virus

Several top infectious-disease experts said Monday the variant may not have originated in the United Kingdom. Instead, it may have been identified there first because the United Kingdom has a robust monitoring system that has examined tens of thousands of genomic sequences of virus samples.

The United States has lagged in sequencing and does not have nearly the same level of virus surveillance.

ďIt may very well be here. It may have even started here. The sequencing in the U.S. is so sporadic,Ē said Jeremy Luban, a virologist at the University of Massachusetts Medical School



Wow. Thatís quite a statement about the country that won the race to the moon.

Gravy. Just wanted to share.

Made this ďmake-aheadĒ gravy yesterday in between candy making and organizing my Tupperware drawer 😂 Took forever but was yummy.

Saved half for Turkey day and used half with roasted chicken quarters at dinner. Really good gravy. Probably the best Iíve ever made.

Weíre smoking our turkey so I added a dash of liquid smoke. And I put a quarter cup of powdered cream in with my flour to make it richer - but Iím not sure I needed it!

Andrea Mitchell...

I seldom listen to her (TuneIn), but when she isnít on a script and has to be on her feet she sounds just lost.

Is she ill?

I am looking for recommendations for a good article or journal piece that looks at the electoral shitshow/ I mean college and breaks it down. I want to really understand why it was implemented, how it was pro/slave owning, why we still have it, etc.

Yes, I know how to work Google Scholar. Iím looking for recommendations of writings you guys have liked, bookmarked, saved.
