It is called a stimulus check. Itís designed to keep the economy going. If she doesnít need it to survive, the idea is that the money goes back into the economy.

I can set up a printer. I got tech overload at the job troubleshooting computers every day. Trying to figure out why the computer on the car won't do what it's supposed to do by using a computer that won't talk to the car. Doing programming and all the myriad of problems with that. They actually had a land line for me to use to call tech support, which I did nearly every day.
The worst thing about cell phones to me is what they do to people. Mrs John even brings hers to a restaurant sometimes, it makes it like eating alone for me.

he’s a youngster. Enjoy these years.

My dad was 77(to the day) when we watched the Red Sox win the World Series together in 2004.

Best birthday party ever.

You're right, dear. :)

Of course, it'll go into the economy in Galway, but they need it too.

When I was a kid, pork and sauerkraut was the traditional New Years Day lunch. Later in life, I used to make it in stoneware crocks in the root cellar.

My dad was an Angels fan. He took me to a game when they played their home games at Dodger Stadium. I think it was 1963. I remember it well, there was a man with a jet pack who took off from home plate and landed in center field. I was amazed.

I guess I'm about to also. It just seems like the easiest way to pay this particular one-time bill.

I was getting injections and drips three times a day. An antibacterial and an antibiotic. And in the early days, diclofenaco for pain. Now I'm down to paracetamol for pain. And 250 mg Cipro twice a day. For a week I guess.
And while we're here, one of the best things about being out of the hospital is having full use of my right arm. No catheter living there anymore.

My dad is 86 and a huge Red Sox fan since he was a kid.

Thanks. I've done my research and I'm good. It's really wonderful to have you folk to ask though

Cipro is a really bad choice for you. It has lost almost all its gram positive activity due to antibiotic resistance. Most of us are avoiding that class of medicines (fluoroquinolones) due to slight but real risk of tendon and nerve injury. No joke. Ask your local pharmacist for some cephalexin (Keflex) 500mg 3x/day for 7 days. Thatís what the local ER usually gives. Way better choice than cipro.

I have to get it by prescription. There are very few things we need prescriptions for. Antibiotics is one of them. We can get Prozac over the counter but not Zanex. I tried
And I would have to get it from him. I don't even know how to find him.

I heard that a significant percentage of Americans (1/3?) actually believe COVID19 was created in a lab. Sad!

Several different versions of the theory, scary some of the people that believe these.

I have never been vertically challenged :D

The laser thing in that video you posted is interesting, though the guy who made it needs to be more entertaining to go viral.

It got published in the NEJM. He'll be OK.
