    Re: C-19 booster #3

    I got my 5th a month or so ago & combined it with a flu shot. None of the others bothered me a bit, but this one - maybe because I combined the 2 - kicked me in the butt big time. By the 3rd day I...

    A friend fed his pig with day-old (more like week-old) bread he got for free. He called him "WonderPig".

    I wonder if that's why the Green Acres pig was named "Arnold"?
