Is Texas the south? I learned ramps from a cooking show a few years ago and more recently a YouTube channel that foraged for mushrooms and ramps.
The south claims Texas, yet I've found that some Texans still think they are an independent country. Ramps are native to the eastern mountain areas.

Can’t blame Texas for trying. After all they were an independent country at one point in time.

never heard about this, what do you think is going on?
All I know is my husbands' office was told by all suppliers that masks are being rationed. IDK if that means hospitals, too? And due to federal guidelines, they cannot wear washable ones.

My 2 year was in the hospital in January for pneumonia and the nurses said that the flu, rsv, upper respiratory viruses, croup etc has been hitting harder this year that they have seen in previous years. All the nurses and the doctors wore masks when they came in the room and the baby had to wear one if she left the room. It was a lot of masking going on.

We got an “I need backup” call from the daddy at 9:09 am. The almost-ten-year-old was in the nurse’s office; could we go get her? Of course we could, and did. Low grade fever, raspy voice, coughing.

We brought her home. I assumed my take-pressure-off-spine horizontal position on the sofa. She crawled up on the same sofa...it’s kinda long...her head in just the right location so I could put my arm around her and we could cuddle and watch something dumb on tv.

Shortly, I will acquire a severe version of whatever it is, develop pneumonia, spend a week in isolation in the hospital and maybe die. (Cuddling triumphs over masks.)

It’s going around.

First time at the rodeo.
Oh no! I hope the littles feel better soon and the flu shots keep it away from the adults who cuddle them.

This season's flu made it around the memory care center where we just moved my dad with devastating effect. Sadly, he was on a wait list because they were at full capacity and the flu is how his room became available.

On the coronavirus front, one of my friends is snowboarding in Contamines-Montjoie this week. Here's to hoping her room was disinfected properly if it was previously occupied by a patient!

Well because she had pneumonia I went to the doctor as soon as my symptoms went from allergies to a terrible cough and we caught it with antibiotics and a steroid shot. We all had flu shots and she had the pneumonia vaccine but it was for a different type and her's was bacterial. I hope everyone can stay healthy!
