Today is a new day, a new week –

I have to get out of the funk I am in – This does me no good. I am a happy person but lately, I\’ve been in the dumps. I don\’t like myself when I get this way – sometimes I get stuck. I have to wake up every morning and make sure I check my bad attitude before my feet hit the floor. 
Okay, so today is a new day and a new week. 
Friday we went to dinner at a friend\’s house. It was so nice to get out and fellowship. We talked and talked and talked…starved for in-person human interaction – the food was good, too.
Today I get to get my feet checked out. I am very ticklish. I don\’t just giggle like a silly school girl, I cackle loud when my feet are touched. The first time I ever had a pedicure, I laughed so hard I had the whole place laughing with me. It was embarrassing but, everyone seemed to have a good time with it. 
I\’m wondering about the covid19 vaccine. Ages 65 and over are due to get it, here in California, Feb 1. I was all set to get it until I read an article about some disturbing things. It does get to the point where I just don\’t know who to believe anymore. I really want to get it because I don\’t want to get it. But then the cure could be worse than the actual virus. I don\’t know. I\’ll have to dig out my old \”thinking cap\” once again and think about it. The couple we went to dinner with, both had it in Dec. Very mild – the one thing that bothered them both was lack of taste and smell. She said after they got over covid, they got a cold that was worse than their covid. I know I hate colds. Stuffy runny noses – I hate colds. I used to get them when my kids were little. I was thinking our immunities are probably down with all the lockdowns etc, so many of us will get colds once again. I had a pretty good immunity before all of this, due to working with little ones for 30 years. It\’s probably all gone now. 
I\’ve been messing with my computer and changing out some stuff I no longer want. I got rid of google chrome and download BRAVE. I got rid of google search and now have Duck Duck Go as my search engine. It was really hard to uninstall my google chrome. Some sneaky little file I had to search for, file by file, and then I found it. I\’m impressed with BRAVE. No ads, it is faster and my privacy is protected. It blocks trackers and ads. It saves bandwidth, too. 
Years ago, I remember using IE – Internet Explorer. Then I used Firefox for the longest time. I started having problems with it and then switched over to the newly released Google Chrome. For the most part, I did like it, but too many ads and the issue with my privacy was starting to be a concern. Every few years, I do like to make some major web browser changes. It does take getting used to. 
Okay, so I am OFF – to cackle and giggle at my Podiatrist appointment. 

From My House – For the homemaking side of me

    I use Brave and Duck Duck Go as well. I am trying to get away from \”Silicon Valley\” as much as possible. I've also joined MeWe which is just like Facebook and which is like Twitter.. As for the vaccine, when people ask me my opinion I tell them, I can't tell you what to do. I can only tell you what we are doing and we are NOT getting the vaccine and if they try and force it on us then, life will become even harder for us but we depend on God to care for us. This vaccine was pushed through way too quickly, they have no idea what the long term side affects are from it.. Older people 65+ have passed from it because they couldn't handle the side affects but you know it's hard decision to make because everyone is different and everyone will react different to the vaccine and or the virus. When I got Covid I thought I was going to die. Literally thought I was going to die and should have gone to the hospital because of my breathing but in my head I thought if I was going to die I wanted to die at home not hooked up to a machine. I actually told my husband where to find my life insurance policy. Now he got it also about a week after I started and for him it wasn't bad at all. So it's very individual. The other issue is though no one knows how they will react… I feel your pain…

    Having my feet touched doesn't bother me. It's my ribs that are sooo ticklish. A lot of rumors about the vaccine are going around, but then, some people still don't think the virus exists. My friend Carol got her first shot on Friday. She said it was the same as getting a flu shot. I hope you can find the answers you need.Love,Janie

    I will have the jab when I am allowed I know some will have not so nice side effets but it is a gamble I am willing to take because I may have no side effects who knows

    I literally moved out of the Silicon Valley 13 years ago, this May. I love all the big tech stuff – I won't lie. However, as anything, too much power corrupts. They need to be broke up like they did to Ma Bell back in the 1980's.
