More Good News about Covid-19 Treatment
According to Professor Yaakov Nahmias at Hebrew University in Israel, they have identified a drug that is highly effective in the treatment of Covid. Studies on 4 continents are using Fenofibrate, pronounced as (fen oh fye' brate), an inexpensive drug that has been on the market since 1975, to fight the disease. Studies have shown the drug has an exceptional safety record with no side effects. Covid acts by overstimulating the immune system, creating what is known as a cytokine storm, instead of fighting the lung infection, it actually destroys the lung tissue itself.
Researchers found the use of Fenofibrate immediately reduces the inflammation, essentially pneumonia, and it essentially disappeared within the first 48 hours, 93% of people go home without supplemental oxygen in less than a week, compared to 25% without it. I spoke with a Doctor's office locally and confirmed that they recommend it to their patients and the cost is less than $20. They tell me the first thing you should take if you have Covid is Ivermectin which requires a prescription, and apparently is getting hard for pharmacies to acquire, and a Z-pack (Zithromax/Azithromycin). They also use Hydroxychloroquine. Extensive research shows these all can be effective, however, not all doctors have taken the time to fully research the subject. If you have been diagnosed with Covid ask your doctor about Ivermectin, Hydroxychloroquine, Fenofibrate, and Budesonide (a nasal spray).

Wynken, Blynken, and Nod
Eugene Field - 1850-1895
Wynken, Blynken, and Nod one night
Sailed off in a wooden shoe,—
Sailed on a river of crystal light
Into a sea of dew.
"Where are you going, and what do you wish?"
The old moon asked the three.
"We have come to fish for the herring-fish
That live in this beautiful sea;
Nets of silver and gold have we,"
The old moon laughed and sang a song,
As they rocked in the wooden shoe;
And the wind that sped them all night long
Ruffled the waves of dew;
The little stars were the herring-fish
That lived in the beautiful sea.
"Now cast your nets wherever you wish,—
Never afraid are we!"
So cried the stars to the fishermen three,
All night long their nets they threw
To the stars in the twinkling foam,—
Then down from the skies came the wooden shoe,
Bringing the fishermen home:
'Twas all so pretty a sail, it seemed
As if it could not be;
And some folk thought 'twas a dream they'd dreamed
Of sailing that beautiful sea;
But I shall name you the fishermen three:
Wynken and Blynken are two little eyes,
And Nod is a little head,
And the wooden shoe that sailed the skies
Is a wee one's trundle-bed;
So shut your eyes while Mother sings
Of wonderful sights that be,
And you shall see the beautiful things
As you rock in the misty sea
Where the old shoe rocked the fishermen three:—

Women Who Know Their Place
Retired American Broadcast Journalist Barbara Walters, did a story on gender roles in Kabul, Afghanistan several years before the Afghan conflict.
She noted that women customarily walked five paces behind their husbands. She recently returned to Kabul and observed that women still walk behind their husbands.
Despite the overthrow of the oppressive Taliban regime, the women now seem happy to maintain the old custom. Ms. Walters approached one of the Afghani women and asked,
“Why do you now seem happy with an old custom that you once tried so desperately to change?"
The woman looked Ms. Walters straight in the eyes and without hesitation said,

A friend notes: I don't know if it's age or being locked up all day during the pandemic and sitting in front of the computer for too long but I swear my mind's become like an Internet browser. Nineteen tabs are open, three of them are frozen and I have no idea where the music is coming from.
Another acquaintence tell us:
We've had to put a sign on our door too. It's aimed at deterring cold callers and says -

Bon chance, mes amis. We will meet again.
Now some important philosophical questions on life .......
Why do supermarkets make the sick walk all the way to the back of the store to get their prescriptions while healthy people can buy cigarettes at the front?
Why do people order double cheeseburgers, large fries, and a diet coke?
Why do banks leave vault doors open and then chain the pens to the counters?
Why do we leave cars worth thousands of dollars in our driveways and put our useless junk in the garage?
EVER WONDER... Why the sun lightens our hair, but darkens our skin?
Why can't women put on mascara with their mouth closed?
Why is the man who invests all your money called a broker? And why do we trust them?
Why is the time of day with the slowest traffic called rush hour?
Why isn't there mouse-flavoured cat food?
Why didn't Noah swat those two mosquitoes?
Why don't you ever see the headline 'Psychic Wins Lottery'?
Why do they sterilize the needle for lethal injections?
