Need another pair of old tenny runners (old redneck from Algona supplied me with that name) and while looking at a pair that is moderately inexpensive (because I’m cheap) and I see I can make payments on them. Who makes payments on shoes? You would have to have 100 loan payments if you did stuff like that.

Was it from a guy on the street who “warmed” it up with a lighter and a spoon first?
Naw it was fully blown legit in a medical office with a doctor and the vaccination card. There was an oddity about the dr watching a kids show in between giving shots but other than that looked normal.

What makes me even more mad about how Iowa is handling this all was seeing a guy I knew in college post on Facebook last night that he was getting vaccinated. He lives in Norman and apparently Oklahoma was vaccinating something like 15,000 yesterday alone at this mass vaccination center.

Had a 3-4 PM meeting today and someone scheduled a 4-6 asking if I could move the 3PM so we can start earlier. So I do. What does he do? Makes it a 3-6 meeting. F that.

Does Iowa have anything like that set up anywhere? Doses are supposed to be going up soon so these spots that have had them should get a lot of traffic.

Today I get to go through a house that should be fairly easy although the assessor calls it a one story and 25 years ago I remember seeing the cherry wood open staircase going upstairs. But before that I get to go through one that I may need to check to see if my vaccinations are up to date. There is stuff all over outside at least and have been told there were cats all over inside at once.
What brand did you install? Probably said so but don't want to backtrack through threads.

Keep thinking I should maybe put something in but than again I am home all of the time. Will probably wait till I get a get new router. Mine is fine for main living area and office desk top is CAT 5'd to 80 mps but wifi drops it way down. Old house portion with thick plaster and outside with wire mesh under the thick stucco. I'd swear the stucco mesh is like a huge faraday cage.

Not even close to that. If you can find a shot you are lucky. Keeping this from the cave I will stop here but this rollout is dumfounding even compared to other VERY red states.

Whatevs.

I went with Blink. It's amazon. Figure old Bezos knows my life anyhow so he can now see who comes to our house. Will need to see if I need to go with a nest type system for wifi since the other camera will be on the far corner of our house. That will cover our driveway and garage. Most people use our garage entrance.

Holy cow - I haven't heard that one in years! It was what we always called them as kids (so I don't know if it's a Texas thing or a Seattle area thing). I stopped using the term when we moved here, because no one knew what the hell I was talking about. :D

My wife helped you out, she denied the vaccine when she was offered. Was hearing bad stories at that time and I'm popping ABs at blood draws so she is going off my AB tests. So she bumped you one up.

Well, it was an Algona person saying it in Oklahoma City, maybe the mood caught him.

Does anyone know how that works, if you get vaccinated does that end your ability to donate plasma?
