That sounds scary as heck to me Leech.  Have you talked to your Dr. about it?  I was told by my eye Dr. that pieces of plaque breaking off in your blood stream in the brain can make you have a shot of light in your eyes.  ???

Yep, that's where this part came in "was told they were stress related"
Blood spots "floaters" are a different thing.

I'll betcha he gets re-elected.

... Some things have to fundamentally change and I'm not optimistic.

We are still 20 months away from the election, and there is surely much that will happen between now and then which will determine the election.

  • The real cost of the state's Covid response will be known by then.  We'll know how many businesses failed and how much are taxes were raised.
  • Based on the way the Chauvin case is being botched in the media just weeks before the trial, I can't believe that any outcome will result in the people unanimously believing justice was served.  Walz's response to that crisis will be remembered.
  • And we will be two years into a federal government dominated by liberal ideology and policy.  Depending on how all that goes, some "swing" states may slew back the other direction, but Minnesota is usually last in catching up to that trend.
Good luck.

I guess anything is possible, but he's pissed off alot of people just with the rona, then add in his stance on the wolf season, mining and the pipeline. :confused: and that's just off the top of my noggin.

As far as SD, meh, different state different issues. Been there enough, talked to enough residents, not as rosy as one thinks.

  8th worst state for deaths per capita.
Would be worse if not for Minnesota health care facilities coming to the rescue.

So today I read the CEO of one if the pharma companies expect rona shots every year and people with type O blood are way less likely to get the rona.

I got an email from my sister on Tuesday that she'd finally got the BIL an appt but it was in Albert Lea at WM. Couldn't get 1 at Hy Vee, Walgreens, or WM in Austin though as she'd been trying for 2 weeks. On a wim, thought I'd check at WM in GR yday & after asking if I was > 65 it looked to me that I had my pick of times for today, if I wanted. So we're gonna wait to do it there.

Got our first one, Moderna, at Walmart in GR two weeks ago.  No wait except to answer all the questions about age, insurance coverage, Doctors name, etc. because there was no line it went smoothly, except there arenít many signs, just 8 1/2Ē x 11Ē sheets with small print raped to the pharmacy windows. Itís the windows on the left as you face the pharmacy area.

President Biden didn't care for Texas and Mississippi going mask free.

Biden told reporters it "a big mistake" that some governors are loosening COVID-19 restrictions on Wednesday, adding, "The last thing we need is Neanderthal thinking."

 At least they're not "rocks and cows" (?).    :confused:

Yep. We made appointments about a week in advance. We could have gotten in earlier, but had other things on our schedule.
We had looked at other places a couple weeks earlier, but ran into situations where we couldnít get two appointments close together. The Walmart appointments were 10 minutes apart.

Good for you mikey!  :happy1: Someone was trying to tell me to sign up for the recent round of shots in Waseca Co. even though I'm several years shy of 65. Kinda pissed me off. I'd feel pretty low if I cut in line only to find out someone 65 or older couldn't get one & then got sick because I was being greedy.  :embarrassed: Like the "one and done" idea. Just hope Canada & the US get their act together and allow travel w/proof of vaccination. Works for livestock & pets.  :confused:

Gottlieb has been talking about this for a week or so. They knew people who have been fully vaccinated were going to go see family members they have not seen in a year or more anyway. So it was useless to make guidelines nobody was goin to follow beside it destroys any trust with the DPH that anyone may still have.
