    Elderberry has antiviral compounds. Sambucol is an over-the-counter syrup, but I prefer 4 ounces of elderberry wine as my daily flu shot.I got jabbed plenty when I donated blood, but the Red Cross won’t take me anymore due to skipped heartbeats.

    Finally, something useful for those who aren’t moving. I could do with more tips and recipes and less plot. But, it is what it is.

    Probably the squirrels are selling the souvenirs, so they can buy some nuts that don’t grow locally.

    The fourth character is Killer.

    For example: Today, Economist Dean Baker is publishing his new book Rigged: How Globalization and the Rules of the Modern Economy Were Structured to Make the Rich Richer.

    This book shows that upward redistribution was not the result of globalization and the natural workings of the market. Rather, it was the result of conscious policies that were designed to put downward pressure on the wages of ordinary workers while protecting and enhancing the incomes of those at the top. Baker explains how rules on trade, patents, copyrights, corporate governance, and macroeconomic policy were rigged to make income flow upward. http://cepr.net/press-center/press-releases/how-private-equity-makes-its-fortune-at-the-expense-of-its-limited-partners-and-u-s-taxpayers

    Deniers, see if you can wrap your heads around four facts.1. The climate is changing, mostly getting warmer. Some places cooler. This compares the 1990 and 2015 growing zone maps. https://www.arborday.org/media/map_change.cfm2. Climate is not weather. It is the average of the weather in a given area, usually over a 30-year period.https://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/noaa-n/climate/climate_weather.html 3. Global temperature and CO2 are rising hand-in hand. See fourth chart here. http://www2.sunysuffolk.edu/mandias/global_warming/modern_day_climate_change.html4. The increase in CO2 in the last 150 years is due mainly to fossil fuel use and land clearing. This has been shown by analysis of different isotopes of carbon in atmospheric CO2.http://www.realclimate.org/index.php/archives/2004/12/how-do-we-know-that-recent-cosub2sub-increases-are-due-to-human-activities-updated/ What has been caused by man can be fixed by man, though it will require a huge effort.

    My first cell phone was a brick. Now I’m on my third flip phone. I don’t need data on the spot, though it would be handy to answer questions sometimes. I need a phone I can stick in my pocket with change, keys, pocketknife, screws and nails, etc. A flat screen phone wouldn’t last long. As for Facebook, I can waste all my time without it.

    About 1960, I could get into a double feature Saturday matinee for ten cents and six Pepsi bottle caps. About 1930, my father could ride a streetcar for a nickel, see a movie, and get a comic book and candy bar for a quarter. At home, he reached into the back of the battery-powered table radio to get shocked. Anything for a buzz.

    If cable and satellite TV can have a couple hundred pay-per-view channels, they could do subscriptions for individual channels, and we wouldn’t have to pay for the junk we never watch. The technology is there.As for reality, the right-wing media makes its own, and we have all suffered for it. The disparity with real reality makes sure of that.

    Not being snobby, but my wife and I don’t shop at WalMart. I haven’t since my father’s death in 2001, except once as a last resort to get something for someone else. And I haven’t been to the local mall since the last day I worked there in 1990. Those greedy crooks are never getting another penny from me. I manage to spend all my money without going to dens of evil and villainy.
