please be true.
Don’t worry.  The mega hype and angst over Covid will subside, substantially- on November 4th.

I hear a lot of "experts" saying a lot of very different things, most of it based on hope more than facts and data.

I know there was a bad flu pandemic in 2012 or so, and frankly I don't recall a thing about it.

Here's a story for the group.  I'm going to attempt to relay the story as best I can.  

Good friend of mine, Nate, went through a COVID exposure a few weeks ago.  Nate and his wife Nikki have three small children, all under the age of 5.  Nate was my co-worker before I changed jobs and we keep in regular contact.  

Nate was riding to work (they live about 40 minutes away) with another co-worker Teddy.  One day, after Nate and Eddie had been carpooling for several days, Teddy went home sick.  Nate had to get a ride with another co-worker.  Teddy tested positive for COVID and actually had to be put in the hospital (Teddy is in his 60's).  

A few days later, in late June, Nate's children started getting sick and all were tested for COVID.  They tested all three of them but not Nate or Nikki.  Several days went by, and Nate and Nikki got sick as well.  By now this was early July.  

Both were tested for COVID, but they still had not received the tests for the kids taken several days earlier.  All got better with no further compliations.  About 10 days after they tested their kids for COVID Nikki got a text that said she tested negative for COVID.  Two days later she got a text message that she tested positive for COVID.  She called the testing place, confused about why she tested negative and then positive.  Their response was that she tested negative in late June and then positive in early July.  She stated that she did not test in late June, only her kids did. I do not think that any of the other kids tested positive but I'm not sure.  

Anyways, Nate's test came back negative.  So 5 people in one house, all got sick within a week of each other with the same symptoms, 4 tested negative, and one tested positive.  Same symptoms, all were exposed to COVID.  One person tested negative that didn't even take the test!  

Like my friend told me, if he thought this was all a joke before, he really knows it was a joke now.  

Teddy had to be hospitalized twice, but I think he's now at home recovering.

I had the signs of a cold so I thought Id take my temp

it came back as 97.1

I took it several times with the same result

now I have not taken my temp for at least a decade but I remember it should be 98.6

so I googled this and it said its quite common for a person as old as I am to have a temp 1 degree below normal

learn something new every day

oh and I dont have a cold

The original measurement was an average of 37°C, so the average here should be just around 99°F, no decimal places.

The song is wrong,
The song is wrong,

I'm telling you the song is wrong.
And then she said so long
She hooked up with some Hmong
Who was a member of the Tong

And she stole my pickup truck
And frankly I don't give a hoot.

I run at 97.3 now. When I went about 100.5 in early March, it was alarming.
