  1. fishcake,

    I got mine in Calif. but it was several months ago and I don't recall how long it took. I'm pretty sure that I had it within a month. A Canadian friend who was vaccinated in Calif. tried to register himself on the Calif. registry from Canada and was unable to do so. I don't know if he tried using a VPN or if that would have helped.

  2. Pete, 

    a QR code is something like a bar code. Your phone probably has a QR reader installed on it or you can easily install one yourself. You go to the Wash. State registry site and scan a QR code linked to your vaccination record.  Permanently store it in your phone. When somebody needs to see your record you simply pull it up on your phone. Mine is from Calif. but Wash. looks like probably the same form that I filled out. Very simple.

    The Washington registry is at      https://waverify.doh.wa.gov/

    A little more info for Wash.      https://www.doh.wa.gov/Emergencies/COVID19/VaccineInformation/VaccinationVerification

  3.  ...more of the cocina topic, but I just wanted to catch the eyes of anyone....

    Am I really the only one who sees all of this crap? Does everybody else have to specifically search out each and every new post? The first time I took notice of this phenomenon was when the board blew because the pet column was reorganized and people were afraid that nobody would ever be able to find reports of downtrodden dogs and cats. Why do I see every new post and others apparently see only the posts that don't matter to them? Is this a conspiracy? I don't mean to introduce politics into this but i do use Linux.

  4. I agree with Shag. I would try white noise for awhile before considering packing up and moving.

    ...weve always had a box fan on high  or mediam by our heads at night to "white noise" ....

    I've had a couple of smart displays (one Lenovo/Google and one Amazon) and both have ambient noise machines with many choices of whatever type of noise is desired. Everything from white noise, grey noise, pink noise, surf, wind, crickets, crackling fire,....you name it. When my Lenovo crapped out I nearly panicked wondering how I would get through a few nights waiting for the replacement to arrive.

    Superlake sells a dried type you can mix for liquid buttermilk. It is reasonable and you can keep it on a shelf instead of the extra going bad.

    Does that powder simply flavor the milk or does it thicken the milk like the cultured buttermilk from the refrigerator case.

    Repeated three times. You’re adamant about it, aren’t you?

    Jeez, I hoped nobody would notice.

    Somehow I posted it twice and while trying to remove one of those I ended up with the third one. I firmly believe in the advice: If at first you don't succeed try and try again, then quit. There's no point in making a damned fool of yourself.

  7. I don't know if this is true in Mexico but in the U.S. non-Amazon stores (Best Buy, Target, etc.) are still selling brand new older 4K models while Amazon is selling only their newest models and some refurbs. The same may be true in Mexico. AFAIK the difference between the 2020 release and the 2021 release is the addition of 4 pre-selected channel buttons on the 2021 remote. I am not a fan of those buttons so I prefer the 2020 release which is not available from Amazon---at least in the U.S. Pay close attention to model numbers and release dates.

    Years ago it all started with "Soylent Green".  Solved many problems and the "patent" is likely under intensive review in Brazil.

    I hope you're thinking of Pink Slime and not Soylent Green. Soylent Green will probably come soon enough.

  9. Pete,

    don't make any unchangeable plans for a few days after your second injection. That second one is the one that can often cause a reaction that may last a few days. If there is a reaction it may be nearly unnoticeable (I slept for 24 hours) or it may come with high fever, headache, weakness and body aches. Everybody that I have talked to agrees that the reaction can be very uncomfortable but worth it.
