Nice photo and a smart time to take it easy given what's going on with the flu. Even for those who do the shots, they say it doesn't protect them all. I can't do the shots-- allergy to something in them; so I try to be ultra careful about handwashing and staying out of crowds. We'll see how that goes.


Rain: We got the shots as soon as they came out. I'm sorry to hear that you can't take them. Maybe you should stock up on Tamiflu if you haven't already.
I get every flu that comes along and so have my fingers crossed that the shot will protect me.


Ouch! not pleasant to bite the tongue. Rest and reading is a good antidote to your busy lifestyle -- barbara

i used to get them but would always get sick. It didn't seem like a big deal until the last time when I was as sick as if I had had the flu and had a lump in my arm at the injection site for months. I though can mostly avoid being in groups and use the usual methods to protect myself like washing hands, etc. The last time I had the flu was 1989 or '90 and I know the time because I read a wonderful book that had just come out-- The Island Within by Richard Nelson. A book I still have and heartily recommend. It's in the spirit of Dillard, Lopez and about the PNW coast.

I did get the pneumonia shot (had the booster this year) so figure if I did get it, I'd not at least get the complications... hopefully.


I do not remember that condor, and it is amazing.


More than half of states are reporting widespread activity in what is now being considered an epidemic by one of the nation's leading health officials


Is that condor real?!? So big, like out of some horror film...

Sorry about your tongue!


Marja-Leena: It sure looks real, doesn't it. It's huge.
