News from the battle front
I was woken early this morning by the pain,
I now know what the inside of a septic tank feels like.
Incidentally, does that make me “woke” [whatever that is]?
In other news, on Monday I placed an order online for a Tesco delivery today. I realised yesterday I had forgotten to include an item. I logged into the system and it told me I had no orders due for delivery. It had lost everything I had so carefully typed in. Even stranger, it says I have only had one delivery in the past, back in July. This is a little weird as I used them quite regularly. I had to place an entirely new order but naturally, not with Tesco. I’ll probably get two deliveries today and wll have nowhere to store them.
Yet another little bit of news –
I was down in the village yesterday. They are demolishing the scaffolding skeleton of the Disney monstrosity and everywhere you look there are blokes painting walls and woodwork back to their original colours. I went for a coffee to catch up on news. I heard that a neighbour has a dose of Shingles too.
I said before that I’m not an expert on Shingles. It strikes me as strange that there should be a second case in the area. I know of the person involved but haven’t spoken to her in many years [and nor do I wish to] so cross infection is impossible. Is this just a strange coincidence?
I wonder if she had the Pfizer jab.
Just a thought?
Keep moving or you will be painted I your original colours.
Tell them your hair was fiery red.
I could do with a fresh coat….
Gotta be the same Pfizer side affect that got you grandad. On the other hand with all the “Experts” popping up these days there may be one who can explain how cross infection is not only possible; but very likely. They probably won’t show up however unless a TV camera is close by.
I haven’t had a chance to talk to Doc since he came back from his holidays. I’m more likely to get a straight answer from him.
Good plan. It’s nice having a doctor you know you can trust.
Do Tesco use the same software as the HSE?
As for losing everything you had so carefully typed in… look for a Chrome or Firefox addon / extension called “Textarea Cache”.
Textarea Cache has been part of my essential toolkit for years. I was using literary licence anyway – what I meant was scrolling down a massive page putting items [and their quantities] into my “basket”. Textarea doesn’t work for that!
Maybe you have had Covid? Shingles is definitely a side effect of that. Shingles is pretty common, even before Covid. You could find several people with it in one village. I know. I lived in a village. I had shingles. And so did others. I was told to keep away from kids. I could give them chickenpox!
I very much doubt I have had Covid, if only because my contact with The Great Unwashed is rather limited. What I would love to know is whether I would have developed shingles if I hadn’t had the jab. Too late to find that out now?
I had shingles just once, a few years ago, and recently my doctor offered a “shingles vaccine”.
I haven’t taken it up yet;- I’d thought that I might be immune enough from that first time, but I don’t know.
But this herbal concoction really did give me relief, as good or better than the old Calamine, if I remember that correctly?
I’m not sure if these image links will work, or even if they’re allowed, or will convey the information outside that anyway.
Of course, living alone, it would have been be helpful to have a friend massage it into the area. But I managed, strange relief.
Surprised, really. It really did help. Maybe the UK has some kind of similar offbeat folk who can offer similar stuff?
