I got my flu shot, for this winter, on Saturday, October 18, 2014, at the Hannaford Pharmacy. It was a spur of the moment decision, pretty typical of me. Yes, I was going to get a flu shot this year, as I had for the last 3 years, but I hadn’t really thought about when I would get it. Saturday afternoon around 3pm I was at Hannaford with Devanee. I just picked her up after she got back to school from a NH State cross-country meet. We needed some odds and ends. Our friend Richard Leonard, of ‘Miller Farms‘ and hopefully soon a NH Senator, was on duty. They, for a change, were not mobbed. I did need to talk to Richard. Plus we needed a couple of his “Elect Richard Leonard” signs for our yard to keep the Ray Howard signs company. While talking to Richard it occurred to me that I might as well get my flu shot and get it over with.

Richard, as ever, always trying to be helpful, was happy to oblige.norvatis11

For the 3rd time in a row I got my flu shot at Hannafords, in Alton — for the 2nd time Richard Leonard. It really was painless on all fronts.

The last two years I had to pay because I had the stupid, NH Health Plan. This year Anthem, to their credit, paid for it all. Zero cost to me. I am impressed. I have started to have a grudging respect for Anthem. I might even stay with them in 2015.

Getting ‘the shot’ is a BIG change of heart for me. Prior to 2011 I refused to get the shot and have the kids get it. But then in November 2010 I nearly died though much of that had to do with some cavalier treatment I got from Dartmouth-Hitchcock (Concord). [Ironically this afternoon I helped Deanna file a formal complaint about them, to the NH Board of Medicine, about them. I also JUST found that THOUGH they call themselves Dartmouth-Hitchcock they are not really that affiliated with the mothership in Lebanon! Some deception going on here. But that is another story, another post down the road.] I, at the urging of many, a few of them doctors, agreed to get the flu shot after that — plus i am getting up there.

As with last year what I was inoculated with was the Trivalent IIV vaccine. Today I went looking to see what it was all about. See below [click to ENLARGE. From the CDC.] Fingers crossed. Hope this post helps.

Clearlakes Chorale, where this is her 3rd year signing, has become Devanee’s 2nd family — and that is good.

Last year, for her 13th birthday, her birthday, October 10, fell on Thursday — the night of the rehearsals. So we had a birthday party for her at the rehearsal, during the break. It was huge success and a number of folks said “you should do this every year”.

I didn’t need to be told again. Folks know me. Any excuse for a party. So we had a party the day before per birthday, this Thursday. It was fun.

Heating Oil In Central New Hampshire $3.19 A Gallon (If NOT Cheaper) — Time To Get Some.

Gas prices, thanks to a massive glut, are ‘depressed’ right now, across the board, across the world. We can see that in terms of gasoline (petrol to us) prices. I still think of it as ‘expensive’ BUT it is cheaper than it was a few months ago.

I called up my buddy, Steve, at Foley today, to order a couple of gallons now that colder weather is in the offing. We have a few dredges left (in our 275 gallon tank) from a delivery we had in the Summer. Given that this is now ‘winter’ as far as the NE oil companies are concerned I expected to be given a price with two significant ‘3’s, such $3.39. But, Steve volunteered, well aware of my continued dire pecuniary straits that heating oil is ‘at its lowest’ — though he, canny as ever, didn’t put any bounds to that statement. But, when he said $3.19 (cash price) even I realized that that wasn’t too bad. So I told him I will have 7.5 gallons as opposed to the 5 that I was going to order.

Just wanted to share that news with YOU — as a kind of Public Service Message.

IF Foley has heating oil at $3.19 (cash) a gallon you should be able to get it, cash, at roughly that price from others, around here — IF NOT CHEAPER. Foley never claims to be the cheapest — just the cheeriest. I am sure Fred Fuller is a full 10 cents cheaper, though I haven’t checked.

So just a heads up.
