  1. If you attended public schools in Alabama, you've been vaccinated for all kinds of good stuff in the past. Had a guy at work yesterday tell me had wasn't getting a Covid shot and that he had never been vaccinated. What? I asked, did you attend public school? Yes, he said. Well, you've been vaccinated.


    The specifics:

    Children attending 5 year-old-kindergarten through 12th grade must have had 5 doses of diphtheria/tetanus/pertussis vaccine (4 if the 4th dose was received after the 4th birthday) and 4 doses of polio vaccine (3 if the 3rd dose was received after the 4th birthday). Booster doses of tetanus-diphtheria toxoid vaccine must be given every 5-10 years after the preschool booster. Children in these grades should also have received 2 doses of measles-containing vaccine and 1 dose each of mumps and rubella vaccine, usually administered as 2 doses of MMR vaccine. Varicella (chickenpox) vaccine for kindergarten entry became a requirement in 2001. This requirement will increase by one grade cohort until Fall 2013, when varicella documentation will be required for all children, kindergarten through 12th grade (see chart below). A positive test for varicella immunity or documentation of chickenpox disease is acceptable in lieu of varicella vaccine. Also, children attending 6th grade are required to have Tdap.

  2. Here's what you do. Using a regular combination wrench and your torque wrench, teach yourself how much pressure to apply to the wrench for proper tightening. So torque a bolt to 110 lbs and finish it off to what you think is needed with the combination wrench to 115 lbs. Check it with the torque wrench. You'll be surprised at how close you can get with the feel. Install and torque all bolts possible this way. Then finish off those few bolts with just the combination wrench and your newly calibrated brain. Job done.


    Remember, the most amazing tool you will ever own is you.

  3. What a hero. RIP.

    Apollo 11 started with the Saturn V rocket. There is one to see at the US Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama. Go see it and all the other stuff there if you get the chance.

    I'm not a lawyer, but Isn't it ok for an employer to fire you for any reason that doesn't break the law. Just like it's equally ok for you to quit.
