@XXSpadeMasterXX,
I don't care - it's the process that's fun for me, in this case the reminder about football, and the fellowship. I like McG, as it happens. We differ on this and that, but I find him quite sharp.
I'm sure my marks in different years run up and down the ladder.
Well, shucks, so do the teams' marks..

@ossobuco,
No I know...I feel the same...I just think it is cool if we got the SB pick correct...

It is just for fun...And I like McG too...And all others in...

And I am sure that anyone who plays often will go up and down...I see that from my fantasy...But just think it is cool to get the SB pick correct...

@XXSpadeMasterXX,
Smiles.. (but I worry)


ok, now, I need not to get the flu.
I get my shot next Tuesday, which is my yearly appointment with the local clinic.

I need to up that appointment this next year. It's one busy place.

I think it would have been cool if they'd vaccinated the Pats against broken limbs. Confused

@Kolyo,
I shouldn't like football, I know all sorts of stuff to not like it, and it's getting chancier as we learn more.

However, I'm pleased that Pats were patted.

Cough.

@XXSpadeMasterXX,
Ah, hate to disappoint you, but I'm a guy as well.

(Kolyo is a Bulgarian boy's name, variation on Nicholas. It actually sounds more masculine, I think, than the Russian version, Kolya.)

@Kolyo,
Koylo's ok.

It's me that may not be, Spade. We have different opinions, at least on religion, though I recognize your sig line.
I don't engage much on threads on all that, unless I lose my cool re Spendius.

@Kolyo,
Kolya? That's nothing. How about Sasha, which I believe is a deminutive for Alexander? Sounds positively effite.

@roger,
Yes, and there are plenty of girls named Sasha, too. There's even one gal on TV named Sasha Alexander. Even if she didn't have a Wiki page, I could tell she wasn't born that way. "Sasha Alexander" has psdeudonymous tease written all over it.

Yet it never seemed to bother the Russian guys named Sasha that I've known throughout the years. They know we Americans, effite as Russian names might sound, still see them all as commies, mafia billionaires, toothless hockey-players, reclusive math gods, or all of the above.

Overall, across the age groups studied, the vaccine's effectiveness was found to be a moderate 56 percent, which means those who got a shot have a 56 percent lower chance of winding up at the doctor with the flu. That is somewhat worse than what has been seen in other years.
For those 65 and older, the vaccine was only 27 percent effective against the three strains it is designed to protect against, the worst level in about a decade. It did a particularly poor job against the tough strain that is causing more than three-quarters of the illnesses this year.
It is well known that flu vaccine tends to protect younger people better than older ones. Elderly people have weaker immune systems that don't respond as well to flu shots, and they are more vulnerable to the illness and its complications, including pneumonia.
But health officials said they don't know why this year's vaccine did so poorly in that age group

so much for earlier claims that this years shot was very effective.

The CDC's Bresee said there is a danger in providing preliminary results because it may result in people doubting — or skipping — flu shots. But the figures were released to warn older people who got shots that they may still get sick and shouldn't ignore any serious flu-like symptoms, he said.

i am very tired of the government trying to manage my information, as well as their other manipulation attempts.

@hawkeye10,
It's unfair, but if you have a strong immune system, you won't like have a bad reactions to the shot, either.
