In my state today...

NJ cancelled the administration of the J&J vaccine as of today. They are awaiting further federal guidance, but cancelled appointments for J&J out of an abundance of caution. They said the vaccine...

Cases are still surging in places...

I haven't dined inside since the pandemic started, and have only been outside once. I will most likely be taking a short trip to upstate NY in a couple of weeks, and might be dining indoors at my...

I truly get it. My brother was my mother's favorite. She was disabled, but still had her car. Once when I was flying down to Florida to visit her, she gave her car for the week to my brother's...

A great feeling!

I have no debt now except for a car loan, and I am able to replace that amount back into my savings account each month since I have started collecting social security. I had credit card debt stemming...

Tough decision...

A few years ago, I wanted to adopt a second dog. A rescue was desperate to find this dog a home, and he sounded like a good fit. They knew I had an older female and said he was good with dogs. What...

Easier Said Than Done

I am retired now, but I taught for 42 years. The decision to leave the profession and move on, whether it is due to retirement or other choices, is not an easy one.

It is very sad that this...

It is just me, and I do not mind leftovers. Last night I made 4 Parmesan crusted pork chops. I also have a rotisserie chicken I bought, and shrimp I can stir fry in the freezer. Those will be the...

We were told we would be fully protected 2 weeks after the second vaccine was given. I had Moderna, but I think Pfizer is similar. Not sure about J&J.

Not acceptable

Shame on your principal. By her not dealing with this person, it shows she is a weak leader and not invested in creating a positive culture in her school

I so agree with other posters who offered...

Hard to tell

Hopefully, after a good night’s sleep, you will start to feel better. I had aches and a headache after the second Moderna. I started feeling it that night, and by late afternoon the next day, I was...
