Good morning. Today is sunny and temps will be in the fifties all day. Tonight, temps will drop into the forties, and tomorrow's temps will get back up into the sixties. I wonder why we always get this drastic drop in temps when Summer changes over to Autumn.
I found an interesting article in the AARP magazine. Did you know that by opting out of vaccinations, you may be missing an opportunity in the fight against dementia? For people between the ages of 75 and 84, influenza vaccination was associated with a reduced likelihood of developing Alzheimer's disease. (Research led by Paul Schulz, M.D., a neurologist at McGovern Medical School at the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston.)
Other research has found that adults ages 65 to 75 who had received the pneumonia vaccination had a 28 to 30 percent reduction in their chance of developing Alzheimer's. The bottom line is that vaccinations are one of the most studied and well-tested preventive care measures for our health.
All my life I've been prone to respiratory illnesses, so I always keep my Flu and Pneumonia shots up to date. And now with the booster Phizer shot, I feel a bit more comfortable about being able to go out now and then.
Here's another article that I thought I would share. This one can be fun and might be rewarding to some lucky persons.
Tuesday's storm was mostly thunder and lightning with a lot of rain. The cable guy showed up and picked up the bag with the digital part from the TV. I did take a photo of him taking the bag. I was not offered a receipt, so I'm glad that I thought to take the photos of both the cable guy and his truck.
Now we just have to find the right antenna for the TV and then figure out how to make it work. I did buy one, and Deanne hooked it up to the TV but I think we're going to need an adapter. Aye yi yi. It's always something. I guess this is what keeps Life interesting.
I finished the second pocket wrap that I've been working on and now I'm making pockets for both of them. This is the least fun part of the wrap for me. Don't ask me why. It just is. Once this is done, I'll finish the baby blanket and the mystery project.
Now I'm going to get a fresh bottle of water from the fridge and enjoy some blog reading. So, till tomorrow, Y'all stay safe and have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
