    Ahhhh yes! We were taught the Three Times Rule in our training. Even today, when I don’t have anyone else but my Sweetheart to check a medicine label, I ask her to look at it after I have done so three times

    Is it Acetaminophen? Check. It is. Reread it. Acetaminophen. Check! and so on. I know the contents of our medicine cabinet like the back of my hand, but old habits die hard. :D

    I also teach people how to safely remove their gloves and mask without contaminating surfaces. Some things, you just cannot be too careful about!

    So buy another one. Keep an eye on FleaBay and you’ll eventually come across one that is well made and beautiful… grab it!

    Back when my grandfather was still alive, he had a FANTASTIC set of old OLD tools. Wooden handled screwdrivers, a folding ruler that was made with handsome dark wood with brass end caps, saws with carved handles, files with wooden handles and the like. Over the years, he lost a few things, but kept many… then I inherited his kit. The folding rule he had was missing. In its place was an ugly white plastic one. I hit FleaBay and found one for around $20.00 and grabbed it. Today it, along with several other BEAUTIFUL old (but still useful) tools reside in my tool kit.

    Yes, I have modern plastic-handled hammers and wood planes… but I also have a set of screwdrivers (all straight slot) with lovely patina’ed wooden handles. Worn smooth from the passage of time, but they match the ones my Grandfather had. It brings a smile to my face whenever I need to fix something, to take out a hand made tool and to feel the wear on the handle… wrought in decades past by a craftsman. I imagine the history of such tools, and if I ever pass them down, I pray that whoever owns them will feel the same.

    Go ahead and search for older tools, slide rules, compasses, pens, brushes, etc. use them in good health and with thankfulness that such beautiful items are not impossible still to find.

    Sorry, but no. The problem is that Republican rank and file can be handed a pail of rancid slop and will then psycophantically swear up and down that it’s the finest ham sandwich they ever had in their whole lives! Furthermore, when handed a plate of Filet Mignon by the Democrats, they’ll swear it’s poison and refuse to allow anyone to enjoy it!!

    Many developed countries are, during the pandemic, giving their citizens a monthly living stipend. America cannot. Why can’t we?

    Many developed countries are turning more and more (some exclusively!) to renewable energy. America cannot. Why can’t we?

    Many developed countries have bullet trains and incredible mass transit. America does not. Why don’t we?

    Nearly all developed countries have national health care. America cannot. Why can’t we?

    America has a higher maternal death rate, infant mortality rate, shorter life expectancy, more poverty, lower rate of college graduates, or of education in general higher rates of “medical bankruptcies” et cetera. In so many many many areas, America cannot! Why can’t we?

    None. Not because mimes don’t want to be vaccinated… but because healthcare workers can’t get into that invisible box!
