    Heard the stats on flu shots on the news last evening...it is not the best vacine around...for seniors it is about 30% effective, for young adults it is more like 60% effective, for little children is was lower. I got mine in October and so far, knock on wood, I am okay. The flu is really hitting the whole country very hard. Take care everyone!

    My last clue, and it is a telling one, but my SP doesn't seem to post on this thread (maybe she just reads?????) is, you have two cats and four dogs. Still haven't seen any clues that shout out "it's me!". Healthy thoughts are going out to all you who may be at risk for that flu. Cross fingers you all will safe

    Received a fabulous package from Jaba late yesterday. Sure made me smile. I love all the bright and bold items. I received a super pink placemat for my spot at the dinner table. This is great amoung all the males in my home. Everyone will know my spot. I love the hot pads and dish towel. The needle book just blessed me as I have not seen this before. The package was fantastic!!! Thank you Jaba.

    Good idea! People vastly underestimate the effects of flu. I got flu in 2000 and ended up in hospital with pneumonia, very poorly indeed.
    Don't know if it's the same for you folks, but a doctor I know told me they're using last year's vaccine. Of course, as the virus mutates, the vaccine is not as effective......

    Well Mscupid...I guess I can't read....I thought it said your pkg was out for delivery on Monday...didn't come to me. I reread and now know it could still be mine and if it is it will ARRIVE on Monday!

    Krystyna I love your idea about quilted face masks! I honestly do not know how you come up with such great responses! You make me laugh and that is "heart healthy" according to Dr.Oz!

    Okay... packages are at the post office... so one more set of clues.

    SP #1 You like in a city that is also what is left on the table.
    SP #2 You live in a city that sounds like a bouncy meadow.

    These were by far the best packages I have put together. Now to anxiously await their arrival to the recipients. :-)

    Just got a good laugh... I noticed when I addressed my packages, both names ended in Real. I thought that odd. DUH, it just dawned on me, the Real belongs on Real Name.... so my two secret pals will get a good laugh when they see how their packages are addressed.

    Hav4, that is hilarious!! suonds like something I would do. LOL I actually went shopping, all by myself, looking for stuff on my SP lists. One item I thought would be easy, and I cannot find it locally, so I ordered it today. Not sure it will make it in time for this package, but maybe. I sure did have a good time, though. Found a "Sewing Center" that I didn't even know exhisted. I went in to check it out and they were just about to start a meeting. It was a group of ladies that did machine embroydery (sp). They invited me to stay, and I did. The show and tell was to-die for!!! Seeing all the cool stuff they were doing on their machines made me want to learn how to use mine. They do classes there, and I think I will try to find the time to take a couple. Anyone care to Join me?
    I have 2 pals this month. Pal #1has one less grand than I, but the sexes are more evenly divided. Pal #2 measures in metres and has a potentially royal fur baby.

    I need the weekend to finish up, but hope to mail by Monday.

    Hey, Jaba, with your weather report, just to let you know, I won't be coming over to watch the football games - just too cold, sorry. Maybe next year. P.S. neat package you made - pattern for your crocheted squares?

    Sent package to my SP today. She never posts on here but perhaps she reads this thread so I'll leave one last clue: the name of your city is defined as usual, typical, expected.

    Vanogay for the dishrags or the hot pads? I'll miss you tomorrow but understand. Snowed and blowed here all day, has stopped right now but suppose to get more tonight and most of the day tomorrow. Forecast says 7 below tonight...
    My other SP got her package yesterday also. So they are both home. Still waiting for the mail to come to my house.

    Krystyna you made me laugh with the quilted masks! Great idea though. I found out today that our county had lost one person to the flu but there are many in the hospital, mostly elderly. I hate to say this but due to my immune system I can't take the flu shot. So I wash my hands a lot with antibacterial soap and try very hard to say hello instead of shaking someone's hand (I deal with the public). Everyone make sure you have the meds stocked just in case. Oh and awesome packages lately!
