Remember Keep a Journal/Food Diary? It works.
The study, published online Wednesday in the journal Cell Metabolism, found eating a snack high in fat and sugar every day alters the reward circuits in human brains to create lasting preferences. Fatty and sugary foods train your brain to hate healthier options: Yale study — New York Post, March 22, 2023 HT to Sally […]
Here’s another post in my nearly world famous Electronic Sticky Note series. Posting the link here as summer is starting soon and I need better salads than the prepacked kits I tend to buy and eat. Click for the recipe https://thefirstmess.com/2023/05/24/hummus-crunch-salad/
On average, 86 percent of people surveyed for Statista’s Consumer Insights in 21 countries said that their diet contained meat – highlighting that despite the trend around meat substitutes and plant-based products, eating meat remains the norm almost everywhere in the world. To satisfy the world’s hunger for meat, 340 million tons of it were […]
The first written records of pancakes come from the ancient Greeks and Romans. Around 500 B.C.E., Athenian poet Cratinus described “a [flat cake] hot and shedding morning dew.” Some 600 years later, in the late second century C.E., Greek physician Galen included a recipe in his On the Properties of Foodstuffs that’s similar to how […]

That’s very interesting. I had a tetanus shot within the past three years. But I have never had an MMR shot, since I have already had measles and rubella. Never had mumps. Have you seen anywhere that it is actually recommended to receive an MMR shot? I can’t imagine the great unwashed being willing to get a shot that’s not even intended for Covid when they won’t get the actual shot that is designed to fight Covid.
The CDC recommends people who are born during or after 1957 who do not have evidence of immunity against measles should get at least one dose of MMR vaccine. My wife and I actually got booster MMR shots before we came into contact with the first grand-baby. This study will change nothing for the great unwashed. But it sure is interesting.
I was born before 1957. And I actually remember having measles. It was dreadful.
Did you get booster pertussis shots as well?
Yes TDAP too.
For the I immunocompromised booster, have you read whether it’s better to receive the same kind of vaccine you got for the first doses or go with a different mRNA vaccine?
I received Pfizer initially, and I’m debating whether to go with Moderna or Pfizer for the booster.
With an overnight sleep I began to question my recollection on my booster shot pre-grandbaby visit. So I checked with the keeper of household shared memory and she confirmed we both had a TDAP booster NOT the MMR. I stand corrected.
I’ve seen headlines but haven’t delved into any articles on Covid boosters. It will be hard initially to filter out the hype. I’ll keep my eyes open on this topic.
I’m planning to get a COVID booster shot in the next couple weeks, since I have several of the conditions that put me in the immunocompromised category. I am trying to decide whether to go with a third Pfizer or switch it up and get a Moderna.
I figured it was probably TDAP. That’s what the pediatricians are recommending for the grandparents.
It’s a good thing I forget about my memory lapses otherwise they would annoy me.
What memory lapses?
Typical aging memory issues. My last response was a joke. Where did I put my phone? Those types of age related memory issues. On a serious note I still feel mentally sharp.
Here’s your booster information from Yale.
I have those aging memory issues too. They are annoying. But I still think I’m mostly mentally sharp. Thanks for the booster info!
