Detective Chief Inspector

Detective Chief Inspector (5/8)



  1. I know how you feel. I've been boycotting Wal-Mart for years due to an incident over a customer service issue. I know it doesn't matter to them but it matters to me in principle and I told them so in the letter I sent their headquarters telling them I thought their customer service sucked. Surprisingly, or maybe not, I got no reply from them.
  2. Did I see the actor who played Mike Stamford in Sherlock?
  3. No time travel. Just dealing with childhood traumas and facing unpleasant occurrences. The futuristic aspect of it is very off handed, incorporated into daily life. Even though the books are classified as sci fi, to me they are really mysteries with some quirks.
  4. I've never had the flu but I have always gotten a flu shot, for at least the last 20 years or so. I worked as a medical receptionist for 17 years and it was offered, and encouraged, thru the office. I then got cancer 5 years ago and it has been definitely advised since then. I don't recall having any reaction to the shot except a sore arm.
  5. My arm was sore for several days and I had some minor joint aches, nothing very bad. But several people told me the second shot would hit me harder so I was prepared. It just hit more suddenly than I expected and I thought since I didn't have any reaction after almost 24 hours I was home free.
  6. Thanks for the info. I did have a bit more redness with the second one but nothing major.
  7. Got my second Moderna shot two weeks ago and felt fine, except for a sore arm, for 22 hours. Then the fever, chills and aches started. I also had several feet cramps, which I'm prone to, just not as frequently. All that lasted several hours and Tylenol seemed to help. But for the next two days I was very tired and wanted to do nothing but sleep. Even now I'm more tired than usual. What is Covid arm?
  8. Has anyone read the "In Death" series by J. D. Robb? The books are slightly futuristic, but not overwhelmingly so, starting in the late 2050's up to the recent ones set in the 2060's. The main characters are a New York city homicide cop and her insanely rich husband, with a very colorful cast of supporting characters. The murders can be a bit gruesome but are unusual and creative. The main attraction for me is the character development with most of the characters evolving over time, with the early novels delving into the past and telling how they got to who they are now and the later ones touching on how some of the cases affect them and their pasts.
  9. I got my first Moderna shot last week and had just the sore arm for about three days. The nurse told me if you have a strong flu-like reaction it means you've been exposed to Covid, your body has recognized it and is fighting it off. I've also known people, my sister is one, who had a stronger reaction to the second shot, for possibly the same reason. I'm not scheduled for my second shot yet. I live in a rural area and the nurse said they weren't sure exactly when the next shipment would be here. So I'm waiting for a call.
  10. Yes, I've always called them lightning bugs but, like you, I do know them as fireflies also.
  11. Thanks for the quiz, Carol! My most common cities were Louisville and Lexington, Kentucky and Chattanooga, Tennessee. I live in northern Kentucky about 30 miles south of Cincinnati, Ohio so I wasn't surprised with the Kentucky cities but Chattanooga did surprise me since it's in southern Tennessee, quite a distance away. Interestingly the question that put me there was the one about "lightning bugs".
  12. I have a cousin that works at the library but haven't talked with her lately about customer volume. Several people use the website to download ebooks apparently because every time I select a book there's usually a wait list. They are usually pretty quick about getting your books together. The last time I ordered actual books I was called back in about 30 minutes. Our library is located on the outskirts of town with the pick up window around back which also leads to the return box. They want all books left in the drop box where they are collected, sanitized and "quarantined" for several days before being lent out again .
  13. When our new library was built a few years back they put in a drive thru pick up window which at the time I thought was odd. However since they've been closed to walk in traffic twice it has proven very handy.
  14. I was surprised at how easy, for me, the test was. I only missed one and I recognized her face but couldn't think of the name. I'm puzzled by some of the results. The average score for my age group was only 8.70 but I thought the subjects should all be relatively well known. Also I thought there would be more obscure choices, but it did state it was about famous faces so I guess that would explain it.
  15. Years ago I was horrified to think I might be becoming allergic to cats. But then I realized that every time my allergies acted up when I nuzzled my cat he had just come in from outside, so it was the pollen I was reacting to. Thank goodness!
