I’m looking for a moisturizer that hides the fact that I have been tired since 2010. – Unknown
In today’s column, I take a quick look at these people/issues:
- Covid-19 Vaccine
- Deb Haaland
- One More Thing
Don’t forget to participate in The Western Word poll that asks if you are going to get the vaccine when you are authorized. Click HERE to see the poll. The results will be posted Thursday.
I was able to sign up and obtain a COVID vaccine here in Great Falls. It was a struggle to leave the bunker, but since I love my fellow man (and woman), I thought it was my duty to start the process of getting vaccinated.
I went through CVS (I have their app on my phone) and signed up early Saturday morning around 3:00 a.m. (I don’t sleep too well). Just about all the appointments were open at that time, so I picked Monday morning.
When I arrived at CVS I was greeted and was soon in line for the next tech. The tech took my temperature and asked which arm. After that, it was over and I waited 15 minutes to see if there were any side effects. There were none and I was on my way. This is the Pfizer vaccine, so I will return in three weeks for round two. It’s been a few hours and my arm is a little sore, but that is it except for the third eye that is starting to grow in the middle of my forehead (just kiddin about the third eye).
The personnel administering the vaccines at CVS were very professional and polite. I give them a 10/10. It’s fun to get out of the bunker once in a while and meet new people!
The Associated Press (AP) reported late Monday afternoon that the U.S. Senate confirmed New Mexico Rep. Deb Haaland as interior secretary, making her the first Native American to lead a Cabinet department and the first to lead the federal agency that has wielded influence over the nation’s tribes for nearly two centuries.
It’s about time!
U.S. Senator Jon Tester (D-MT) voted for Haaland. U.S. Senator Steve Daines (R-MT), who tried his best to derail and delay the nomination, voted against the nomination. (Source)
The vote was 51-40. The AP reports that four Republicans voted yes: Lisa Murkowski and Dan Sullivan of Alaska, Susan Collins of Maine, and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina.
ONE MORE THING:
People say, “Go big or go home,” as if going home is a bad thing. Hell yeah, I wanna go home, and I’m gonna take a nap when I get there. – Unknown
