    Argh, moving to Arkansas strikes again.

    Today, I went to a pharmacy located in a big chain store here in Little Rock and got my booster shot for Covid, and I got the first shot for Shingles.  I asked them for a written receipt and they said there was no written receipt, I would get an email for my records.  When I got home and checked, they sent me confirmation of the Shingles vaccine but not the Covid booster.  In a good life and a reasonable world, it would not matter.  But I think we all know my last name is Murphy, and many of you are probably familar with 'Murphy's Law,' which is if anything can go wrong it will. Now I know I am going to need that booster confirmation to be eligible to do something in a few months.  Written confirmation would NOT be necessary if they had sent it to me, it is only because I don't have it that it will be needed.

    Boo, people who would not give me a receipt when I asked for it, boo.

    I had a similar experience in the last few days.  My Houston area medical folks, UTPhysicians, sent me an email offering a Covid booster shot.  I replied that I got that booster a month ago from a grocery pharmacy (HEB, who do notify my health provider), they replied yes, it was in my records, their email must have gone out before the pharmacy info posted to my heath record.  A month?  Whatever, the record is correct. Sorry about your confusion.

    Thanks, SteveK.  Hopefully, they did send the appropriate communications to my health providers.  I am not very confident, though.  Will follow up of course.

  • I ordered an Ancestry DNA test for Xmas. wink 

    Hope I am not revealing a rack of skeletons in my family closet. surprise

    One of my brothers gave my parents the gift of DNA tests.  Now I don't want to get a DNA test just in case it could embararass Mom.  surprise

    I did the DNA thingy a while back. Was reconnected with some cousins on my mother's side I hadn't seen since a kid which was cool.  yes

    Change of subject:  Don't piiss off women footballers by invading the pitch. Especially, Aussie ones! No reason for Kerr to have gotten a yellow card, though. Where was security?  frown Silene

    https://www.espn.co.uk/football/blog-the-toe-poke/story/4542961/kerr-blam!-chelsea-star-flattens-champions-league-pitch-invader

    Chelsea star Sam Kerr received a yellow card for flattening a pitch invader during the Blues' 0-0 Champions League draw with Juventus in London on Wednesday.

    The man, who ran onto the pitch and was trying to take a picture with Chelsea captain Magdalena Eriksson, was greeted with the Australia international's shoulder and left sprawling on the ground -- much to the crowd's delight.

    Funny stuff.  On a related note, here is one wild play in US college football ... the announcer sounds like he's having a coronary:

    did those tornadoes rip through your part of the world? surprise

  • DiomedeDiomede Posts: 13,107

    I was spared, fortunately.  The line of storms did come through here, and the thunder/lightning/winds were rough, but there were no tornadoes in my county.  

    This link has some footage of tornado damage in Arkansas from those storms, but to the northeast of where I live.  

     

  • Bunyip02Bunyip02 Posts: 5,653

    Lots of damage, stay safe !!!!

  • SileneUKSileneUK Posts: 1,938

    Diomede, that's just heartbreaking. So much devasation. Hope you and yours are safe and well. Do you wish you had stayed in DC?

    Good luck with your 'roots' search!   I uploaded my raw data to a couple of sites besides just using Ancestry's tools. Free tools that give you some really ancient way-back machine results.

    USA ( or India 3rd XI ) pulled off an upset win against Ireland in the cricket!  laugh

    WendyLuvsCatz Love the lion!  I often refine freebies or other objects I find in Zbrush as I find the mesh easier to work with.  They are on a streak these last two years releasing upgrades all for FREE!

      I haven't learnt to use Fluidos yet, but the water wheel looks super realistic.

     yes Silene

    finally got my electricity fixed, it was a power pole fault, not my house, can use appliances without brownouts!

    No more protests from my UPS.

    I rang the Power Network and asked them to check as had my suspicions, was quite dangerous apparently.

    I see Alberto has a lightning creator plugin for DAZ studio for sale at Renderosity yes

    since it uses Dforce it probably cannot be saved as a scene subset but Casual's obj sequence exporter with the DCG obj sequence importer could work 

    I have to think about it, might wishlist for now

    My local library has DVDs for checkout.  I will be binge watching the old Wild Wild West TV show.  Could do the intro in Carrara with toon filters.

    That was really weird news to see today... we coincidentally were watching a programme yesterday about the Hilo Hawaii tsunamis that have hit there since the end of WWII. Lots of glitches in the system established later led to people ignoring the warnings!  Hope all OZ friends are safe and sound. Poor Tonga and the  Pacific Islanders, though. We have a rugby playing friend from that area.

    I feel so heartbroken for my brother and SIL because their kitty has gone missing.

    He is less that a year old and was a very loving cat.

    I cannot think of any good scenarios, the least bad being someone stole him for a pet, it just gets worse from there.

    Do they live in a busy area for road traffic?  Are they allowed to put posters up around the neighbourhood?  Hopefully the little guy is just stuck in a shed or something similar and will soon be let out and come home. Was he neutered?  I had to neuter my male I had years ago at 8 mos as he was getting very aggressive and spraying already and travelling the neighbourhood! Fingers crossed for your brother and SIL.
