RE: COVID PERSONAL EXPERIENCES

My SIL had to be tested prior to a procedure and it was done at the hospital a day or so in advance as part of the procedure. Also, both Walgreens and CVS offer tests which can be scheduled and would be covered by medicare. Lots of details on their websites.

RE: RODENTS!

leaving the hood open works because the rats don't like the light. They want their nest to be dark 24/7. Google Rid-a-rat, it's a small LED strobe that you hook to your battery and should keep the packrats away. Don't know if it works on mice though.

RE: RV plywood cleaning stains and repair

I would think any of the deck cleaner products available at the local big box store would work.

RE: I kid you not!

Not surprising at all when you consider only a third of the population can name the 3 branches of government.

RE: 2019–2022 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC POSTINGS

I believe the Delta variant has now been found in all 50 states and is on track to become the dominant version in the US within a couple of weeks. I've heard that the vaccines are about 70% effective against it as opposed to the 90% effective against the earlier variants. Also if you are vaccinated and you do get it you are much less likely to be hospitalized. One of the worrisome thing about this variant is younger people and children are more susceptible to it.

RE: Chicken Before Egg?

I wonder if that age old question, "Why did the chicken cross the road?", has ever had a logical answer? I guess only the chicken could answer that question. I also wonder, if you and a friend were in earshot of a chicken, and you dared your friend to perform a dangerous feat, and he refused, and you yelled, "Your just chicken!" would that chicken become offended and gather his friends and attack you? :h Nah, she'd probably just cross the road and leave.:D

RE: Small "peel and stick" solar panels

Had a friend that used to work for a local company that makes flexible solar panels specifically for RVs. They use some sort of adhesive to mount them. No idea what they cost. https://globalsolar.com/sites/default/files/uploads/documents/PoweFLEX_Mobile_Data_Sheet_1000608_C.pdf

RE: Inflatable Kayaks

I have the Sea Eagle 370 works great for just simple paddling around. It's easy to inflate/deflate and stows easily in the pass through storage.

RE: Moderna vaccine (Personal experiences)

A question for all who have received a vaccine. Have any of you registered on the CDC VSafe tool to report vaccine side effects? Since we are all crash test dummies for the vaccines, reporting side effects no matter how minor is useful to the government and the manufacturers. Yes I did. When I got my first shot I was handed a sheet that described VSafe with instructions on how to sign up. I signed up on my phone during the 15 minute waiting period. For the first week after the shot they sent a text daily with a few questions asking how I felt or if I had any of a number of symptoms. After that it's once a week for 3 weeks. It also sent a reminder to sign up for the next shot when it was due, After shot #2 it starts all over again. You can also opt out at any time. Technically these vaccines aren't yet approved, they are authorized for emergency use, so the more data they have the better.

RE: Moderna vaccine (Personal experiences)

Got my second Pfizer shot yesterday afternoon. Slight soreness at the injection site but that's it. A bit more sore than shot #1, but not that big a deal.

RE: COVID vaccination for animals

Came across this article: https://www.npr.org/2021/03/16/975405670/zoo-vaccinates-apes-to-protect-both-animals-and-humans-from-covid-19 I read in another article that speculation is that an asymptomatic zookeeper was the source of infection.

RE: Catalog of all my mods

I have the identical trailer, just a year or two older. I better not let DW see this or I'll never get any rest. I am going to steal several of these ideas though. I particularly like the top drawer in front of the sink. Thanks for posting.

RE: Moderna vaccine (Personal experiences)

Funny thing is the paper they gave me..."Your Insurance Saved You: $2,59" Now that's a classic! I lost my initial shot card so now I'm scrambling with the state to get a replacement before my next shot on the 23rd. BIL & SIL got their first Moderna shots and had no reaction. They suggested that I take a photo of mine, which I did. Still the physical card probably will have to be provided sometimes. I wish they would have made the card credit card size, it's a little difficult putting it in a wallet. When they initially handed me my card they told me to take a photo of it because if I lose it, it can't be replaced. At least in my state. Once I get the second shot I'm going to scan it as well.

RE: Moderna vaccine (Personal experiences)

Mood on vaccination clinics: Happy, excited and thankful! Happy mood on both patients and health professionals at vaccination venues. Felt and seen this too! Absolutely! People running the site did a great job. I went to a drive through clinic and it ran like clockwork. There were a lot of cars but things moved along quite quickly. I was out in under an hour with an appointment for my second dose. I also signed up for the CDC's V-safe program. They send you a text with a link to a website where they give you a list of possible side effects that you can select if you've had them. During the first week you get a text every day and then once a week for the next 5 weeks. Seems like a good way to get feedback on any reactions to the vaccines.

RE: Moderna vaccine (Personal experiences)

Got the #1 jab of Pfizer yesterday. I had no idea which one I'd get when I showed up, but then again I really didn't care. So far no issues. Arm is a little bit sore but no worse really than a regular flu shot.

RE: best replacement range hood

If you're replacing the range hood anyway you might consider the Fabulous Operating Products range upgrade kit. Its made by the same people who were the original owners of the Fantastic Fans. Remove the fan housing the frame and install their upgraded unit. It's got a quite 3 speed fan moves a lot more air and has an LED light with 2 brightness settings. It also has a vent that can be opened/closed from the inside. Cost is around $200. I did this upgrade a couple years ago because DW loves to cook and was constantly setting off the smoke alarm. After replacement no more alarms. My original hood was a Hengs brand with the fan box spot welded in place so replacement was a bit tedious but not complicated. Other brands have the box screwed on which makes replacement much more plug and play.

RE: Any good/cheap electric razor for camping?

I got this one about 6 months ago and I'm pleased with it. I got tired of buying razor blades so decided to give electric a try. The Norelco's and Braun's were all in the $200 range which seemed steep to me if I didn't like it. The Yohoolio was $38 so I figured it was worth a try. https://www.amazon.com/YOHOOLYO-Electric-Waterproof-Trimmer-Rechargeable/dp/B07ZH94QTG

RE: Daschund legs

I am inclined to concentrate on exercise and limit the use of a doggie chair as I don't wan't her to learn to use the front to the detriment of trying to reestablish use of her back leg. Yes/No? Not sure which brand wheel chair you bought, but in the Eddie's Wheels chair Morgan is still able to use his back legs. He walks his back legs when he's moving around sort of like a doggie walker. It does seem to help improve the little walking ability he has somewhat. It does have foot rests to keep the feet elevated but if I put his legs up on them he just pulls them down. Another thought, Morgan also had several rounds of acupuncture after his surgery which seemed to help. This was recommended by our vet so you might want to check with yours to see if that's an option.

RE: Daschund legs

Can't say if the jacuzzi will help. For Morgan's PT they had an underwater treadmill for the hydrotherapy the doc mentioned. We asked about doing this at home in the pool and were told it wouldn't hurt, but dogs mostly swim with their front legs so it might not help that much. We were also instructed to periodically pinch the webbing between his toes until he pulled his leg away to stimulate the nerves. When he was going to PT they gave us a list of things we could work on at home but the toe pinch is the only one I remember offhand. Do you have an animal physical therapy clinic in your area? If so it might be worth asking them if they have experience with IVDD dogs.

RE: Daschund legs

We have been through this with our dachshund, Morgan, and it can be frustrating but not insurmountable. We rescued him when he was 4 yrs old and a year later he ruptured a disc chasing his ball. From everything I've read this is genetic and 5 years of age is typical for this injury appear. We went the surgery route along with physical therapy and he did recover - for a while. Apparently, he developed scar tissue that put pressure on the spinal cord, so he gradually lost most of the use of his hind legs. He can still occasionally walk but it's not graceful. I disagree with your vet about the wheelchair. We have one and Morgan loves it. He started using it when he was 7 I (I think) and he’s 11 now and shows no sign of slowing down. So I’m not sure why using it for 6-7-8 years is a problem. IMHO NOT being able to use one for 6-7-8 years would be a problem. It just lets him be a dog again. We only use it for outside and it gives him the ability to run and chase his ball and go on walks again. He goes crazy when we pick it up because he knows he’s going outside. They do need supervision when they’re in it in case it gets caught on something. Morgan has even managed to flip it over chasing a rabbit in the yard. I recommend Eddie's Wheels, they custom build the wheelchair to the dog’s measurements. The place where he was getting his PT recommended them and took his measurement for me. I did my own research as well before I bought and didn’t think any of the other options were nearly as good. The website is eddieswheels dot com. You can also get what’s referred to as a drag bag. Basically, a bag that your put the dog in with harness that goes around the upper neck/torso and protects the legs from getting scraped up when the drag around. We had one for Morgan, but he really hated it. So inside we just let him drag himself around. Our floors are tile and laminate so he can’t tear himself up. Good luck with whatever path you choose and let me know if you questions I might be able to answer.
