Out of the Blue

Realizing we were already into the season, MrsBlue and I got our flu shots yesterday to better safeguard against the scourge of influenza. Whenever I mention this I see some push-back, but the CDC reports 80,000 people died of the flu last year in the U.S. alone, so I'm comfortable with the disputed possible association of the infinitesimal risk of Guillain-Barré syndrome to safeguard myself and others with a little herd immunity. I strongly urge everyone to do the same.

And speaking of safety, best wishes to those in the Florida area getting set to cope with an ever-more-dangerous Hurricane Michael. Here's hoping you find safe shelter and that the storm will not be as devastating as predicted.
