Virus Lockdowns


Recommended Posts

All well here and hope all is well with your household too.

Our fire has been going for about 24 hours straight due to the cold snap here in Adelaide. Cat is happy. Wife is "working" from home == we got some gardening done yesterday afternoon before the rain set in last night. She's on a Zoom call with someone in the U.K. as I type this so I guess we're eating late tonight.

Essential worker / essential service status means I'm still working albeit minimally. Bit of study to do at the moment unfortunately but at least it's the right weather for it.

Coffee stout is bubbling away nicely.  Whilst I've had both shots of Mr. Pfizer now, I reckon there's some medicinal value to be had in our home brewed beers too.

Actually had my first covid shot today, next one in three weeks. My conondrum is that work are happy to give you the day off after a covid shot if you don't pull up great...dead set devil and angel on my shoulder atm, I never get Fridays off.

Both first and second shots I was crook for a week. The only difference being my shoulder hurt a disproportionate amount after the first and barely after the second.

As I had to get the shots in my own time and before days off my employer granted me 1 day of annual leave credit. Seems like a pretty good deal and was appreciated.

Looks like I'm going to be sick then

You never know, you might be alright.

Supposedly with the Pfizer shot the first dose is supposed to be OK and the second is the challenging one for your body.

I could also just be a big sook.

What sort of symptoms did you have?

Full cold symptoms - fever, headache, runny nose, fatigue.

I also had some fantastic 5G reception yet I only have a 4G phone. 😉

Being an old bastard I got the Astra 8 weeks ago with my 2nd shot due in 4 weeks time. Absolutely zero after effects. I can't get 5G cause of my tin foil hat.

Food for thought:
 
Imagine that:
You were born in the year 1900
You are 14 years old when World War I begins and 18 years when it ends.
Result: 22 million dead
Soon after, a global pandemic, the Spanish flu, will emerge. 50 million people die.
Fortunately, you are still alive and are now 20 years old.
When you are 29 years old, you will survive the global economic crisis that started with the breakdown of New York's stock exchange.
This led to inflation, unemployment and famine worldwide.
Meanwhile, since you are 33 years old, the Nazis will come to power in Germany.
Since you are 39 years old, Germany invades Poland, and begins World War II.
You are finally 45 years old when World War II ends.
Result: 60 million dead. 6 million Jews die in the Holocaust.
Luckily you're still alive.....
Since you are 52 years old, the Korean War begins.
Since you are 64 years old, Americans started the war in Vietnam.
You are 75 when the war ended
Luckily you're still alive......
Now.....
A boy born in 1980 believes his grandparents have no idea how difficult life is. But they survived several wars and disasters, not to mention the restrictions during the first oil crisis in the early 1980 s.
Today we live in a new world full of comfort, but unfortunately in the midst of a new pandemic.
People complain about staying home for weeks.
While they have power, cellphones, food, hot water and a safe roof over their heads.
None of that existed in previous times.
But humanity survived these circumstances and they never lost their joy of life.
Today we complain because we have to wear face masks to enter the supermarkets.
A small change in our mind and mentality can work miracles.
We want to thank you and me who are still alive if we want to do everything necessary to protect and help each other.

So if I was born before 1980 does that mean I'm entitled to whinge a little?

... no whinging here. We have it incredibly good and are very fortunate.
