    I have heard from different folks that the side effects from the second shot affects different people differently. Heard anything from teeth chattering chills to just sore arm where they got the shot and a whole gambit of things between. We got our first shot a week ago tomorrow and are scheduled for the second shot on the 7th of March. I'll see how affects the wife and I.
    Have a good one folks. Be safe and as always be careful.

    That greenhouse is awesome... Makes me wonder why I see so many that are unused and falling apart. I suppose it is easier for people to go buy their produce than take care of an expensive and productive investment.

    Just got back from an air boat tour. Saw alligators and different species of birds. Several ospreys sitting in nests. Just an overall neat experience. I only got a few pictures with my phone but Deb got a quite a few with her camera. Bigger gators were not cooperating much(camera shy). She got a couple with her bigger lens.

    Welcome VanGo, yup, fill up the cooler and pull up a chair on the porch, just stay out of the big recliner with the reserved sign in the corner, the rocker with the sign "keep your butt off my rocker and your hands off my tools. and the pink rocker with all the soft cushions! :laughing:

    You must have had a premonition, looks like there was just a similar incident in CO, so far they are saying no injuries and that the plane landed safely.

    Went on an Everglades airboat tour a couple years ago. It was awesome. Saw basically what you saw and learned a lot about the Everglades. I’d like to have an airboat but don’t know what I’d do with it.

    Geese getting sucked into jet engines - happens every once in a while where I mostly fly from. I often fly out of Sacramento airport which is in the middle of Northern California and smack dab in the middle of the Pacific flyway. When geese are migrating October through January or so there are lots of them flying over the airport. Never had a goose strike but I’m always looking out the window. Have a neighbor who experienced one a couple years ago. She said she didn’t even know it happened until the captain announced It. Turned the plane around , landed and got them on another plane.
    I have a friend who takes me flying. He has 2 planes one at Sacramento and one at another airport. Luckily every time we’ve flown out of the other airport.

    Regarding the 2nd Covid shot I had people tell me the people who get the moderna vaccine get worse reactions than those who get Pfizer. Don’t know if that’s true.
    We get out second Pfizer shot in 12 days. I guess we’ll see.

    Our weather is pretty nice here in Northern California. Nice enough that I’m grilling a marinated tri tip in a little while and I just opened a very fine bottle of Zinfandel to let it “breathe”. The same friend who takes me flying is on the board of directors of a winery and keeps himself and me well supplied.

    Kind of got carried away with this post. Hope all of you are well and safe and good fortune smiles upon you and the damn weather improves for you all.

    No I didn't Mike, but I wanted to push my wife in and was told we weren't allowed to feed the alligators :laughing:. Although I did keep an eye out for the monster from the Black Lagoono_O

    I mentioned to Deb that we could move down here and I could get an air boat and run tours (so I had excuse to get a new toy) bit she said NO Way. Ears are still ringing from that NO. It was fun.

    Good morning everyone. It's a chilly 4F here this morning and getting colder for another few hours until the sun comes up. Got another 1/2" of snow overnight - should melt except in front of the garage where it doesn't get sun this time of year. No plans for today.

    Stay warm and safe!!

    If the vaccine is two shots, protocol is to keep your second shot in house for you, only releasing it, if you do not show up for your second appointment.
    For your sake and mine, I hope this works.:annoyed:

    Up here since we are so restricted on the amount we get, they released the second dose to
    Distribute to get more people the first shot. So far as I know when the time came for the second
    Dose it was available. Wifey had no issue.

    Good morning all,

    Slept in, the dogs let us because we had visitors late last night - pack of yote's working what I assume was a doe. This morning as I was getting the dogs ready (OK getting my winter clothes on) to go out there was two parades of turkey's the Tom's were first and some were sitting on our split rail fence. While walking the second parade began with the females coming up the road. Went back in and got my camera, by the time I came back out half of them passed.

    Have a great day - be safe - and warm

    Compared to most we had a balmy 30 degrees this morning. Still waiting for the email to go and get our first shot. Read that our county has a shortage of the C19 vaccine. In Maryland you can sign up via a state website when the sign up for your group opens up. Then you receive confirmation from the county that you are in fact registered. Next step is for the county to contact you to set up an appointment for the shot.

    The way government works, I wouldn't rely on that system. Surprisingly, though, during a routine VA appointment, i asked to get on the list. Two days later, I was called to come in for my shot. Very organized, no waiting at all, same thing three weeks later for my second shot. Also not bad for my wife at her clinic, although I had a very long hold on the phone to set it up. Her second shot is next week.
