I resisted getting the flu shot till around 2010. I was willing to roll-the-dice and take my chances. But, as I approached 60 I realized that I better pay heed to what the medical profession was advocating especially since I am very susceptible to infections.

So, far so good.

Over those 8-years, I have got my shot most often at our local, Alton Hannaford Pharmacy. 

It does not get any easier or more convenient. And now they tout and honor a ZERO co-pay. So, no cost other than what they bill your insurance.

Very efficient. Very professional. Quite fast. Very little wait time. Today, they were rather buy and it took just over 30-minutes. Still easier than driving to an hospital.

Yes, I know that they don’t even KNOW what this winter’s flu virus is going to be!

Same story as last year and the year before.

The vaccine, quite literally, is a shot in the dark. Best guess, hope for the best, fingers crossed.

But in my old age and with very little blood cells, red or white, I can’t take any chances. This year for the first time I got the 65+ flu vaccine in my left arm, and for the first time ever, a pneumonia shot — the latter in the right arm. That way ‘they’ know which is which; ‘flu’ with an ‘l’ in it in the ‘l’eft arm. Clever.

MetroCast New Hampshire Customers: ‘Heads Up’ Your IP Address Has Changed … Check.

This will be TOTALLY irrelevant to 90% of New Hampshire MetroCast users.

However, IF you have any applications that ‘rely’ on knowing your home IP address YOU may want to check.

This IP address change happened on Sunday, December 18, 2016, with the SPEED BUMP to 150/160Mbps, that I already talked about.

Many of us in New Hampshire had a MetroCast IP address that started 216.246 …

Not so anymore.

You are likely to have a MetroCast IP address starting 65.175 …

IF you have applications, such as security cameras, that need to know the actual IP address of your IP connection YOU might want to check.

Otherwise you will be in for a surprise when you go to use that application.

Just a heads up.
