Robin so sorry to hear about your sheep. We got a livestock guardian dog, an Akbash Dog, when we moved out to country. We have many coyotes but never lost even a lamb while he was on guard. There is a lady who raises sheep and alpacas near Syracuse who may be able to help you with a companion for your wether. And you might be interested in seeing her Akbash dogs. IMO they are dogs like no other. I was in touch with her when we lost our 2nd Akbash last fall and would have been delighted to get one from her. As it turns out, we got 2 puppies from MO in January that are wonderful. This is her website. Highly recommended - https://www.springsidefarm.net/livestock

I am as far behind as usual, but I am going to pop this in without catching up. Feel free to scroll on by. I am with BOE and prefer less loathsome things to discuss, but I was a med tech dissecting lymph nodes at a major medical school when HIV/AIDS was first noticed outside gay hot spots. My experience is similar to anomamom's. There was and is so much misinformation that it reminds me of what is going on with the Deep State right now. Many people died needlessly because of the cover-up. It was obvious from the onset that it was acting as a transmissible disease. And that promiscuous sex and especially anal sex put people at risk. That was covered up for political reasons just as the gay community is protected today from publicity, but not the consequences. It was and still is a disease of men who have sex with men and the women who have sex with them, and drug users who share needles (i.e. blood). Hemophiliacs mostly died because they received blood products that were made from hundreds different donors (think, having sex with hundreds of people only a few who have the virus). The products that had been lifesavers became killers. Gay men at the time donated blood in higher numbers than other groups and that they are being allowed to donate again is criminal. No test is 100% accurate. CH, you can not get HIV from giving blood, only from getting a tainted transfusion. In areas where needles are reused transmission is rampant. Be careful where you visit. Contrary to what JimNJ thinks, contact tracing was sporadic and mostly suppressed, again for political reasons. Doctors can not legally tell any partners of infected people without their permission. It is shocking how often that permission is denied. Fortunately for people who were working in healthcare it is much less transmissible than feared. Many more workers have contracted hepatitis, for example than HIV. And for people living, what I call, traditional lives, the risk is very low and always has been. I haven't seen Pin's movie and probably won't, but it does seem from what he said it is presenting some interesting information. Some leads that were neglected might have saved lives. Most diseases have some people who are naturally resistant as there are people who are extremely susceptible and a large group in the middle who are resistant or susceptible depending on other factors. This should not be a surprize to anyone.

Have the best birthday Porchlight!
If we don't the border emergency dealt with ASAP, conservative judges will be of less importance. Many lower level judges are elected, and, of course, past performance is no guarantee even with so-called conservative judges.

I'm posting this now although the night crew may have answered it because it is going to take hours to catch up. For those in touch with Barbara about daddy's recent comments. Some people turned off the Recent Activity feature around the time people were getting Typepad accounts. I think daddy was one of those who did that. To reactivate, click on the avatar in the profile page and at the bottom of the page there is a place to activate it. There are links to the recent comments but it does not cover all comments going back. Wish it did.

jim nj thank you so much. What a day, what a memory for detail you have. It will be so much fun, and with no sore feet, to travel along with you and daddy.

Tom Maguire thank you so much for making your blog an such an extraordinary place. This is one piece of the amazing life daddy lived as he took us around the world with him. Thanks JIB for the Jody chant. Never heard of it but isn't that what happens so often here. One mention will inspire more from this equally amazing crew along for the ride on Just One Minute.

jim nj the travelogue is fabulous! Thank you so much both for arranging this for daddy and for sharing with us now. I have copied the installments but for some reason only the links in the text are working, the Posted by links are not. I will have to go back and fix them. This is just to let everyone know they are available in a document. This is just a start and if anyone wants it now let me know and we can arrange a share. I especially want the post links to work because the comments around them are very interesting too and worthy of reading and rereading. Thank you all.

TK says I feel tricked. This whole online world is like The Truman Show on steroids. I have treated it as a novelty first and as a real experience second. My email friends from here have made it out of the show and can sit on the sidelines with me laughing at the same things here that are taken so seriously. Usually I find your writing very clear. This has me bewildered. Maybe I should watch The Truman Show. Would you explain this more? If not here - I can provide another way. Thanks

jim nj When I taught 2nd grade in NYC, one of the favorite trips was the Staten Island Ferry. We would take the subway down and make the voyage. Favorite question - "Are we back in America now?" A marvelous trip especially in the spring, but always well worth it.

Thank you JOM for the comforting words. Daddy can't be replaced, but his legacy will live on. Thank you who met him for sharing your fond memories with those wanted to. Daddy often told of his time in NC as a child and, of course, his pride in his Tar Heels. By coincidence, the parallels with my time here in NC and Chapel Hill were strong, and I felt that if I hadn't met him, I would soon. What a wonderful gift he used to spark interest and bring his joy of life to all he touched with his person or words.

Best Thanksgiving Wishes. Thank you TM and the JOM crew for all the news that fit to print every day. Now better than ever!
Gail Heriot https://pjmedia.com/instapundit/313431/ has a neat discussion of an ancestor who lived through the Salem witch trials. Comments are good too. Maybe daddy can add some more and may even find some new cousins. ;)

It is really quite amazing how much good advice this blog contains. I often remember who wrote something but am completely confused about where exactly.

sbw I think you would find that all the people who signed up in this batch are being followed by that name. I have had a typepad profile for a fairly long time and it was a different bot then. I thought then and still do it was no big deal.
