I had a sore arm after the first shot for about a day or two. I am due for my second shot in 11 days. My wife had the same experience.

Apparently evergreen trees are now symbols of systemic racism.

Someone please stop the world, I want to get off.

I haven't always been paid on time (thinking about the recent issues with the monthly forum bonuses), but that was eventually resolved. Other than what I have currently pending and below the typical cash out threshold, I have been paid 100% in full from FusionCash for nearly six years of activity.

Well we are not quite a 4th the way through the year yet april just started.

I think actually we are 1/4 through the year as the end of March was three full months. End of April would then be 1/3 through the year.

I use another earning site like Fusioncash that has the built in ability to convert your earnings into bitcoin when you cash out. I do the bare minimums there and only cash out for $20 about once every year to 18 months.  So I have earned  about $60 in cashouts (dollar value at the time of cashout), but I have held that in my bitcoin wallet ever since and those $60 cashouts are currently worth about $590 today.

I have a bragging rights NCAA bracket pool going on with my wife and daughter where we get up to 32 points per round depending on how many correct picks we made. Daughter has been in first place in points for virtually the entire way because I chose to gamble on a few early round upsets which ended up going badly for me. She has outscored me every single round except the final four which we tied.

She picked Baylor as her champion and I picked Gonzaga. Now with the way the points shake out - she currently has 89 to my 61 - with the championship game worth 32 points. So either she will blow me out of the water 121-61, or else I will squeak out a narrow victory at 93-89. She doesn't think it is fair that she has beat me every round to this point but one and I still might win outright!

That Gonzaga - UCLA game was an instant classic.

My daughter and I observed Good Friday by watching The Passion of the Christ movie, which is always a tough thing to sit through. I know that it is just 'a movie' but it does help to put into perspective what He went through for each one of us individually.

Some speak out against the vaccine and would take a blood transfusion and still call themselves a Xtian even tho God condones it like homosexuality and abortions.

Dont waste your time tring to get Trump supporters to speak out against him.If what has gone down this past yr hasnt convinced them be thankful you dont have that state of mind.

Some of us Trump supporters will speak out against him (and have done so) when we feel he deserves it, but also defend him when he is treated unfairly (which is 98% of the time when covered in the media). Because it is such a high percentage - is just seems like we are always defending him and never speaking out against him.

Also - not my intention to start a new battle, but if it came to a point where I needed a blood transfusion to save my life, I would gladly accept it without any fear that I was committing a sin in the process. I have personally donated 3 gallons of my blood over the past several years and hope to eventually get that up to about 50 gallons or more - God willing.

I fully understand that you choose not to for religious beliefs, which you are entitled to.

In my state, they just opened the vaccine to the 50 year old age group today. I am still one month shy of that milestone birthday. So I am in a wait and see pattern. I expect Ohio to possibly open it up to the 40 or 45 age group before I am officially part of the 50 group, but either way I plan to be "on the waitlist" by mid April - if not before.
Ohio opened vaccines up to 40+ year olds on March 19. It took me a few days in the system to find a location that had product and appointments available, but I eventually found a CVS pharmacy about 30 minutes away that had both. None of the sites in my immediate area had anything available online and only one or two would put me onto a waiting list.

Got my first shot this past Friday and am scheduled for my second one in mid-April - so I am ahead of schedule based on my earlier post. I had no ill effects at all other than a sore shoulder for about 48 hours.

After I get my second dose of the COVID vaccine I'm going to take a few weeks to let that run its course and then start thinking about getting a shingles vaccine sometime this spring or early summer.

But I'm with you, cateyes 1, in saying they're always our babies.  :in-love: That's exactly how I feel about it.

I agree whole-heartedly. That is why it is so difficult NOT to say the negative things about the offending SO.

It isn't a good idea to get involved in an adult child's love life, it never ends well.
One thing to consider - it is okay to show concern or support, but NEVER bad mouth the significant other in that showing of support. If things smooth over between them, which is usually what is likely to happen - then you will become the bad guy for what you said. It is easy to forgive and forget something your spouse or girlfriend did to you once you work things out. But if a friend or sibling or parent said something bad about them when you were made at them? That sticks around forever!

Also, people will always give the benefit of the doubt to their own child - especially when only hearing one side of the story. But there are always two sides to every story and our children are not always 100% in the right as much as we want to think so.

NOT saying that this is the case here, but just keep in mind the possibility.  Give all the love and support possible, but don't hang yourself in the process.

I feel really lucky to be in Ohio and see the wildlife pretty easily. I grew up in Los Angeles, CA and the only birds I saw when I was a kid were pigeons and seaguls every once in a while when we went to the beach.

I think Ohio really has the best of everything: weather, wildlife, terrain, pizza...

I don't know if I really even have a favorite (in terms of who I am rooting for). I am a BIG Buckeye fan in football, but I am a bit lackluster in my support of their basketball team, which I suppose is a shame given what they did this year up until they hit a skid.

I have not actually watched any college basketball this year (just followed the scores and some of the news & highlights), so I haven't seen anyone enough to have an truly informed opinion, but I think what Gonzaga has done has been pretty amazing - so that is who I have coming out on top in my bracket and they are my only non-Big-Ten-pick for the Final Four.

I know my bracket will get busted big time, but I picked a few early round upsets (there's always a few, but the trick is to pick the right one) and I have Illinois beating OSU and Gonzaga beating Michigan in the Final Four. We are doing a bragging rights bracket pool in my house this year - with my wife (who has ZERO interest in basketball, but is willing to play just for fun) and my teenage daughter (who has very little interest in basketball, but was bit by the bracket bug after she saw other classmates doing it) both joining in. It should be fun - and they will probably both outscore me!

I have robins year round here in Memphis Tn.   VVe also had snovv this year for a full vveek min Feb.  Very strange for this area.   It's all melted novv, and temps in the 70's.

Hey, serious question here - not meant to be a crack or smart-assed - but just coming from a curiosity standpoint. Do you type your "W's" this way anytime you type - like if you were writing up a report for work or typing an email or text or filling out an online form? I just wondered because you are pretty consistent doing that here in the FC forums, but this tends to be a much less formal place when it comes to writing and ideas.

I don't know if you've been asked this elsewhere, but I don't remember seeing it if you were. In the grans scheme, it doesn't really matter, but like I said, I was just curious.
