Covid-19: What are Front Line Workers Saying?

I will get angry e-mails and Facebook posts for this, no doubt. I want to be a voice of reason and research during this crazy time. Please read the full post before you judge, post angry comments or unlike this site forever. Please remember Mark Twain's warning, It's...

Why Are We Still Using Ventilators?

Our governor still referenced ventilators in his press conference. Many are. I don't understand why, when multiple doctors have come out and said that the ventilators are not the answer? That this isn't like a normal respiratory virus, this is more like elevation...

Covid-19 Vaccine Safety Timeline

Whether you want the v@x or not, we should all be concerned about it's *safety* especially since this type has never been used on humans before. 859 days of safety, efficacy and licensing (which also looks at safety & efficacy) are being shaved off in order to get...

When Will Virginia Reopen? Breaking Down Northam’s Plan

I watched the press briefing again with my husband and noticed that Northam kept slipping up on his dates. Perhaps because he really doesn’t know when the state is opening up. Maybe he was making it up on the fly. Or, possibly, he has no plan to open up anytime...

Governor Ralph Northam’s 5/4/2020 Press Briefing

We moved from Oregon to Virginia in January 2020. We left Governor Kate Brown and ended up with Governor Ralph Northam. I am really not sure who is worse. 😳 Governor Northam has used this time where residents are required to stay home to further his agenda: -making...

A Civil War is Brewing

A civil war is brewing in our country. I see it on Twitter and Facebook and in the news. People who question vaccines, question the media and who (gasp!) support Trump are called horrible things. They are dehumanized. They are blamed for a virus spreading, the...

When Did Asking Questions Become Unscientific?

For the last few days, I have been working on a post about 5G and COVID-19. I stayed up late nights researching and gathered and analyzing a ton of readily available data. It started with a question. I didn’t have any theories that 5G caused or even added to...

Discrimination Against the “Old White Guy”

  I am the mother of two black daughters and one hispanic son, so I am particularly sensitive to discrimination against people of color. I am also the mother of two white sons, who, someday, will be “Old White Guys,” and the wife of a man, who will,...
