The Sunday Post #21-32

Welcome!

Welcome to another Sunday Post. Available as a podcast, this post is a chance for me to wrap up my week. Also a chance for you, my readers, to catchup on any posts you might have missed. So enjoy!

Books Reviews From Last Week

Tangled in Tinsel by Julia Mills is another wonderful holiday story addition to her great Dragon Guard series.

The Mate Challenge by Milly Taiden is Emma and Mason’s story. This couple is so adorable that I had a hard time not laughing out loud.

Full-Bodied by Delta James is the latest addition to the Tangled Vines series. If you enjoy watching an Alpha doing everything he can to convince his Fated Mate to stay, this is right up your alley!

In The Roar by Milly Taiden is another romp set on a planet other than earth. Gerri Wilder is as funny as ever.

Swallow by Piper Scott and Virginia Kelly is another story studded with adorable Omega males and hot Alpha studs. Only this time, it’s the family patriarch of the Drake family, Grimbold, who finds his mate!

Final Thoughts

School starts soon for everyone. I don’t know about your school situation, but please consider the ages of your children. If they are old enough to be vaccinated, give serious thought to having that done. I know that children under 12 are not yet able to be vaccinated, but if you have teenagers in the house, do it. The children’s hospitals in my area are reporting record number of children with COVID.

What’s worse is that almost all of the adults testing positive for COVID are not vaccinated. Those folks greatly regret not getting the shots. A vaccination, at the very least, greatly reduces the severity of the disease should you still contract it. There is a big difference between simply being on Oxygen and being on a ventilator.

Don’t Let Your Guard Down Just Yet! #COVID 19

Just about the time everyone thinks they can return to life as “normal,” the virus resurges and the death count starts rising again.

The CDC has stated time and time again, that “people wear masks in public settings and when around people who don’t live in your household, especially when other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain.” CDC Guidance

You would think that it would be obvious to everyone, there’s a right way and a wrong way to wear a mask.

This is a great example of the WRONG way to wear a mask!

Masks are recommended as a simple barrier to help prevent respiratory droplets from traveling into the air and onto other people when the person wearing the mask coughs, sneezes, talks, or raises their voice. This is called source control. This recommendation is based on what we know about the role respiratory droplets play in the spread of the virus that causes COVID-19, paired with emerging evidence from clinical and laboratory studies that shows masks reduce the spray of droplets when worn over the nose and mouth. COVID-19 spreads mainly among people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet), so the use of masks is particularly important in settings where people are close to each other or where social distancing is difficult to maintain.

Notice that they included “sneezing” in this list. Now think about what happened when you sneeze. Go ahead, I’ll wait.

That’s right, it ends up involving the nose! So not covering your nose 👃 doesn’t help much.

This is the correct way to wear a mask. And folks? We’re all going to have get on board with this if we’re going to get through this together!
