RE: Sticks and bricks security question

Here's a Puff from south of the border... Chihuahua On The Roof Security System Multi sensor activated Sound Olfactory Optical Alarm gets louder and more persistent as an intruder approaches Install a pair and they will self replicate Food and water is all they need. No power plug no batteries needed.

RE: New battery cost.

One nice thing about Costco vs WalMart is the lack of an eighteen year old pimple face expert sales "associate" armed with a cheese grater 100 amp load tester who is convinced despite your battery's dead cell his fifty dollar cheese grater load tester says the battery is fine. (Same with Wal Mart tires). Even Wal Mart microwave ovens synchronize platter index return to 30 second intervals. A PITA for coffee mug handle orientation. A Walmart toaster pops toast one inch below the slot. It's really a hoot the Chinese junk they hawk. And beware newest Wal Mart car batteries. If the case looks different avoid it. They are buying from someone else than Mexico LTH battery and that vendor is so bad the Mexicans sneer at it.

Mexican newspapers today, are reporting infection #2 of BA 4 or BA 5 are generating "significantly more intense symptoms". No argument from me. My second go-round did not disagree with the article. I also must agree with their recommendation to discuss a plan in advance with your medical professional. A "Know when to say when" and head for the doctor. Some good news from Moderna. They claim their new vaccine works well against Ómicron variants.

Hah! So much for deduction. The home tests arrived. Feeling poorly, I tested positive. It feels like influenza minus respiratory and head congestion. Fever, no cough, and exhaustion. Plus those danged inflamed eyes. This makes once in March, the 2nd time in late June. As a precaution an RN gave me test #2. Covid positive (sigh).
MEXICOWANDERER 07/04/22 11:20am Around the Campfire

According to WHO the BA4, and BA5, is in full bloom down here. And since I got whatever it was in March, it hasn't returned. There may be hope. I'm getting forty or so home tests delivered this weekend. I hate to admit it, but I have been feeling fatigued since what I suspect was Ómicron visited me after returning from hours long shopping in USA stores. Being old I can get away with sudden siestas. I guess since there's nothing to be done about Long Covid, I'll try and ignore it.

RE: Gas 11 years ago from a Forum memeber

Yep. Things are getting tough even down here. Esmeralda parked her Honda and was leading her burro to the market with an X pack saddle. She hitches the contrary animal to an entrance barrier pipe. Theft proof. It'll bite anyone that tries to steal it. But humor aside, it must be rough with kids to face the cost of fuel for a vacation. One of the pressures that would temper the cost of fuel (cutting back) hasn't seemed to have happened yet.

RE: Self adhesive shower grab bar needed

The only rational way to accomplish a safe surface would need a fascia plate of stainless steel or aluminum that would bankrupt any budget. Exlanation: An outside plate beneath the grab bar that would distribute the pull over a couple of square feet.

If it seems to be effective for BA4 and BA5 I'll read the study. The media is now propagating an idea that the 1st standad mRNA booster leads to a higher incidence of Ómicron infection than it would be had immunization stopped at number2. I think the first issue should be the unvaccinated. California's claim that it is a leader in vaccination percentages must be tempered with the fact that ten million residents have had no vaccination at all.

RE: The price of fuel is not nearly high enough

Isn't it fun when I have to juggle expenses just to have enough money to travel to the cardiologist? Whenever I outlay expenses I recalculate the balance to reflect the sum available for remaining days in the month. Some months I have to make do with perhaps four dollars and eighty cents for eight days. This is reality not a complaint.

RE: new fantastic fan

I bought a Fantastic Endless Breeze fan. At home it rumbled. I contacted the company. They sent a replacement that was an obviously used fan. That fan squeals. I have hope that I can find 120 volt EB Pabst fans (multiple) to jam inside the Endless Breeze case. For continuous use, nothing beats ball bearings and brushless motors. But i am done with Fantastic products.

RE: 7 pin cable

If I may inject a tip here regarding smaller insulated wire terminals. When choosing the type of wire terminals to buy, you might want to specify NYLON insulation over PLASTIC Wire size terminals are color coded Red for 18 gauge Blue for 16-14 gauge Yellow For 12-10 gauge Nylon insulation is tinted like red, blue, and yellow but unlike plastic you can see the barrel of the terminal. It is translucent. Plastic is opaque. Why Nylon? Nylon insulation is a lot tougher than plastic. This allows me to choose a different much tighter crimp without puncturing the insulation. Most crimpers give a () shaped crimp. Keep searching on Amazon or eBay and you'll stumble upon a () plier that has a < on one side. The tip makes all the difference. I've won bets from people who claim the tip shape of the crimp will hurt the nylon. It can't. But it squeezes the terminal much tighter onto the wire. I have not tried this with terminals that have heat shrink ready to go, so I urge caution. In fact with heat shrink terminals or solder shrink terminals I would urge checking into a vice grip type of crimping pliers.

With symptoms out of the Ómicron textbook, but without a test corroboration, I am left in the dark about multiple Ómicron events. Keeping abreast of all possible permutations is a challenge but for me it is a three hundred me round trip. Better safe than sorry will cost me hundreds of dollars. The alternative would be to get a B and T analysis for total count but the lost 15 hours and money will be the same amount. I have a few weeks to work it out. Your answer has great weight in this. Thank you.

Globally, has the Delta variant faded entirely? Is the latest wave of Ómicron overwhelmingly confined to the totally unvaccinated? I'm wondering why the CDC does not use the term "Undervaccinated" rather than "unvaccinated" to better describe outcomes? As always I really appreciate professional expertise.

When was the last VOC Variant of Concern discovered and it's origin? Thanks in advance!
MEXICOWANDERER 05/19/22 08:10pm Around the Campfire

It seems to be taking both mRNA vaccine entities 6+ months to respond to the threat of a mutation. What I missed reading about messenger RNA development is if clinical trials can be sped up without sacrificing the hazard of premature errors? I can hope primary analysis could encompass passage through a medical based algorithm that could pre sort vaccine candidates. Lastly, thank you for some incredibly informative links. I have suffered through two diagnosed bouts of Dengue. I wouldn't wish the pain upon my worst enemy. Daytime mosquito attacks caught me off guard.

Is there activity exploring the furthering of mRNA vaccination against lethal viral infections such as (H5N1, H3N8)? It seems like further pandemics are a when, not an if...

The aggregate total after full vaccination plus mild infection?
MEXICOWANDERER 05/10/22 02:44am Around the Campfire

Moderna announced that its specialized Delta-Ómicron booster vaccine is being tested and that it expects the new vaccine will be "mass distributed in the autumn 2022".

RE: OEM vs Aftermarket - Chinese JUNK Comparison

It was pure luck that I got what I wanted: misaligned aiming. I was looking for 9004 LED bulbs that shined much brighter than incandescent factory bulbs. I was going to re aim the lamps downward to illuminate the street close to the car. Potholes and debris. After installation they turned out perfect (laughter). High Beam really lit up the street in front of me. The hot spot was 30' ahead. And for oncoming drivers, there was less glare on high beam than the old bulbs had on low beam. All without touching the adjustment. Because I do not drive outside of city limits and never in the rain. The crappy integral fan in the heat sink has a longer chance of living.
