    You are being Just. Plain. Mean.

    OK. About 5800 vaccinated people caught COVID, most had a mild case, and a fraction of them died. You might want to check the stats on the number of UNvaccinated people who’ve caught it, and how many of those have either died (multiple millions) and how many survivors have permanent medical/neurological disorders.

    My husband and I started making pizza about five years ago. I make the crust (partly whole wheat) and he comes up with toppings. Our current favorite is either seafood or chicken (plus mushrooms, onions, garlic, etc.) and Alfredo sauce. Friday night’s always pizza night, and Sunday’s dinner is leftover pizza (though not on Easter! It’ll keep until Monday :) ).

    I’m curious what you mean by that.

    “Herd immunity, or community immunity, is when a large part of the population of an area is immune to a specific disease. If enough people are resistant to the cause of a disease, such as a virus or bacteria, it has nowhere to go.

    While not every single individual may be immune, the group as a whole has protection. This is because there are fewer high-risk people overall. The infection rates drop, and the disease peters out. Herd immunity protects at-risk populations. These include babies and those whose immune systems are weak and can’t get resistance on their own."

    “Herd mentality” seems to be a slur some people use to trick people into risking their lives, and their loved ones’ lives, by refusing to get vaccinated. The people who push this line of thinking seem to hope to divide Americans into two groups: sensible people who get vaccinated against a deadly disease, and people who are at risk of being the part of the herd that gets culled (damaged or killed) by the disease.

    The vaccines are NOT made out of cells from aborted fetuses. Some aspects of testing them for efficacy and safety do use cells derived from a legal abortion. But vaccinations do NOT inject any fetal cells into the body.

    Below are quotes from https://www.nebraskamed.com/COVID/you-asked-we-answered-do-the-covid-19-vaccines-contain-aborted-fetal-cells

    “No, the COVID-19 vaccines do not contain any aborted fetal cells.

    However, Pfizer and Moderna did perform confirmation tests (to ensure the vaccines work) using fetal cell lines. And Johnson & Johnson uses fetal cell lines in vaccine development, confirmation and production.

    But it’s important to have the full context: Fetal cell lines are not the same as fetal tissue.

    Fetal cell lines are cells that grow in a laboratory. They descend from cells taken from elective abortions in the 1970s and 1980s. Those individual cells from the 1970s and 1980s have since multiplied into many new cells over the past four or five decades, creating fetal cell lines. Current fetal cell lines are thousands of generations removed from the original fetal tissue. They do not contain any tissue from a fetus.

    Vaccine makers may use these fetal cell lines in any of the following three stages of vaccine development:

    Development: Identifying what worksConfirmation: Making sure it worksProduction: Manufacturing the formula that works

    …The Vatican has issued clear guidance that permits Roman Catholics in good faith to receive COVID-19 vaccines that use fetal cell lines in development or production

    My husband lived there (“Sin”) for three years before we married in 1973. Lovely place. ;)

    I agree. Since we both retired, my husband and I have spent most waking minutes together. Now and then when he pops out to do an errand, I get the most blissful feeling. Solitude! No one watching me like a hawk and pointing out tiny errors.

    Then I feel awful—what if he gets hit by a drunk driver or has a heart attack? I hug him so close when he returns.

    He’s said he feels the same way I do. That’s aging in a long marriage, I guess.

    My husband doesn’t pay attention to where I am when he starts talking. Our home is small, but I can’t hear his soft voice around two corners when I’m reaching the far end of the hall! He sees this is my problem, not his, probably because I always make sure he’s in my line of sight when I speak to him!

    This was my husband and me, until I finally persuaded him that he needed hearing aides (I had had my own for nearly a year by then).
