Hey guys, Happy Thanksgiving! Even though I haven't been around as much, I'm very thankful for all of you. Good to see some of the oldies popping back in again. :-D
Leah, I think we've talked about this before, but why did you decide not to get a flu shot? I haven't had one for many years because I'm scared of the mercury and MSG in them as preservatives. I have had heavy metal poisoning in the past so know my body can't clean mercury out, and I'm allergic to MSG.
However, my local clinic started carrying preservative-free flu shots. The last couple of years I got the flu really badly, and on top of my disease which already has a lot of flu-like symptoms, I felt like I was dying for a couple of weeks. So this year I decided to risk getting a preservative-free one. Other than a sore arm, I don't seem to have had a reaction.
Shann's book is completely done now. She'll probably be taking orders in the next few days.
She did the writing and ideas, Rachel drew the pictures, and I put it all together into a book. Quite the Rest Stop effort! I love getting to help writers get published (either through self or traditional publishing) and helping them see their dream come to life.
Pup, I'm bummed I missed seeing the 50th anniversary episode of Doctor Who. I did play some of the Google games commemorating it, though.
I'm sure Andy and I will catch the episode online or stream it later. We're watching X-Files while we wait for the second half of season 7 of Doctor Who to get on Netflix.
Actually, Andy uses Netflix but my family has Amazon Prime. We've been very happy with it and for sure gotten our money's worth! Prime gives free 2-day shipping on tons of Amazon products and they have a huge movie and TV show collection. There are a few things Netflix has that Amazon doesn't, but mostly it's the same and Amazon has a lot of new releases available for only a few dollars to stream much sooner than you can ever get them on Netflix.
Sorry, didn't mean to get all commercialy there,
, but it's saved us a ton of money and we had no idea Prime had movies and stuff until after we got a trial for the shipping. Since then we've cancelled our Netflix and are perfectly happy with just Prime.
Sounds like it's been cold for everyone here (except maybe Chrissy). It's been around the 20s at night for the last week. I know that's not cold everywhere, but pretty cold for this time of the year in my area of the rain forest in the Pacific Northwest. We might get a little snow next week. We don't get much, and usually not until further into the winter. I'm not working much this term. Nice not to have to be driving in it.
