  • Yes, same as my info from various sources. Apparently the vaccine prompts the body (Via "messenger RNA") to make a batch of the "spike protein" that is the same as the actual covid virus, and that triggers the response.

    As reggie says, there is no actual virus in the vaccine, it is aimed at the portion of the virus that "unlocks" the cells so the virus material can be "installed" in the cell.

    • got my 2nd one on Thursday, much milder set of symptoms. First time it felt like someone had hit me in the arm with a baseball bat, could barely use it for a couple of days. Second time there was some mild aching but nothing else. My wife didn't have any symptoms the first time round and had mild cold symptoms (chills, headache) the second time.

      The story behind it is very cool and worth reading about - the original pioneer of the mRNA technology used in the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, Dr. Katalin Karikó, is a Hungarian immigrant who was denied tenure by the University of Pennsylvania as many thought her work on mRNA vaccines and delivery methods was a dead end. She stuck it out and joined BioNTech 7 years or so ago and the rest is history. Bet U Penn are kicking themselves now.

      • I got my second Moderna shot yesterday. From what I've read I expected a significant reaction - which didn't happen. My arm is slightly sore and yesterday afternoon I had an hour or so of slight disorientation. Dunno if the latter had anything to do with the vaccine - I'd been staring at the computer screen nonstop for several hours...

        • I have my second Pfizer on Wednesday. My first only barely bothered me. Slight soreness in my arm, especially when going overhead, but nothing that slowed me down. I suspect this one will be worse. But well worth it.

          • I have no idea when I will receive my second shot but I sure hope my body's reaction to it is like it's been for several of you gent, mild!

            • April15 I get my second Moderna shot.

              Yesterday John was here doing a few odds and ends, and I asked him if he had drained the fuel from the gas powered string brush cutter, and said he had not, but it had run out of gas. I had him bring it down from the upper "outhouse" shed, and he told me that one of the wheels was broken. He said that was because he was using it on the steep slope and all the weight was pushing on that wheel. It seems that everything he touches somehow breaks. Two weeks ago he had started my car to see if the 12VDC tire inflator worked, and he said that he heard a loud rattling sound when he took it out of gear. But he said he was afraid to tell me about it, so I had to find out when I tried to leave the house on Sunday. That's one of the worst things to do - break something and then let somebody else find out when they need the item.

              So we also found that the machine would start and run with starting fluid spray, but then would die. Obviously a carburetor or fuel line problem. So we removed the carb and I'll be taking it apart for a thorough cleaning and inspection.

              Here are some pictures of the broken 14" wheel. John thought some JB Weld might work, but I doubt it will hold unless some reinforcement was added. I found some replacement wheels for about $20 each, and I'll probably get a pair. They are the same design as the originals, so probably still vulnerable to heavy side loading. I do have some 16" bicycle wheels with good tires, and I wonder if they might be made to work?

              • I'd fix that wheel with some pieces of alu angle and plate through bolted with 8-32 or 10-32 (or M4/ M5) screws. It'll look as ugly as sin, but it'll last the rest of the life of the mower.

                • Last night we used the firepit for the first t ime. Night vision mode resulted in some funky colors.



                  Also tried throwing some fine sawdust onto the fire, was fun:

                          Well i will add that to the list: military helo-ops overhead, multiple satellite traffic sightings, game warden fly overs, state park ranger drive-bys and the odd ufo sightings. Not paranoid at all, but maybe i should be...

                            That's utter BS! That's the result of a sudden impact, OR a REALLY heavy force applied at an angle on one side, such as would happen if he sat on it to take a rest while on a slope..

                            • Yeah, John is a one man wrecking machine. Just yesterday he stepped on and broke a carpenter's level, and he has broken a couple string trimmers, a Ryobi battery powered drill, my B&D battery powered mower, and other things. He says he is "accident prone", and has been in more than 30 automobile accidents. But at least he works cheap and mostly does a good job, although I have to supervise carefully. He is not good at problem solving or coming up with a creative or even logical way to do something.
