    Ha! Got my flu shot today! (And more meds from the rheumatologist because my gout is worse. mutter mutter mutter)

    Glenn, do you know if Amazon is using cookies to aim the ads at individuals? I’m getting mostly cooking things and a book I looked at there recently. (I’m not opposed to cookies, they’re quite useful. I’m just curious.)

    A few months later, the flu also halted the Stanley Cup playoffs in 1919; the only year the cup hasn't been awarded since 1893 (1919 was not good year for sports)

    It also closed down the vaudeville and legitimate theatres as well.
