Having the flu sucks

I am slowly recovering from a nasty bout of the flu last week.  It wound up being over 5 days of downtime and trying to recover.  For the most part am good to go except for a nasty cough and sinuses which tend to run when outside doing light to moderate activity.  This in turn causes a nasty coughing and gagging fit, in a couple of instances turning to nausea and vomiting.

This is pretty typical whenever I have been sick previously.  Hopefully with a new humidifier in the bedroom and liberal use of Vicks VapoRub it should be over with soon.

Meanwhile, plans are proceeding apace for my comm center setup down in Arizona, with the tower base arriving last week.  I just need to head down to stash it in the comm trailer along with the new registration sticker for the little utility trailer to put on.  With any luck my dad's mobile home will be set up and all utilities going by the first part of February, then I can start getting comms set up so I can do some HF receiving and Ku-band monitoring.

This is a sobering reminder of how bad things can happen at any time.  Please ponder Peter's observations and take them to heart.



Never make your life free to take by those who seek to end it. Make them pay hard for it.
