    Learned how to suture? Why and what for?
    I bought a kit...and there are tons of YT videos showing the different techniques.

    I've entered a phase where I hike, hunt, and do some ranch stuff in remote places...and you just never know. I want to be able to at least to be a stop-gap. Animals get injured too so...
    just in case?

    The kits fit nicely in my hiking backpack.

    I've learned how to suture, lay tile, put on a trailer hitch receiver, skin and quarter a deer, and a whole bunch of other useful things on YouTube.

    I listen to the Bible on Youtube.

    I've watched recitals, weddings, funerals, sermons, graduations, State playoffs on Youtube.

    Yes, Youtube hosts all manner of nonsense and they are well known for censorship but it is also an insanely vast library of endless good, useful and important things.

    No-nonsense facts are presented in that video. Check it out.

    The NJ replacement rate is at 1.07. Over 1.0 means COVID pandemic is growing. Under 1.0 means COVID pandemic is contracting.

    It has been on a seesaw course the late month: first shooting up to 1.71 after Thanksgiving, then dropping under 1.0, and now going back over 1.0.

    "Some 250 million people in China may have been infected with COVID-19 in the first 20 days of December, according to leaked figures from Beijing’s senior health officials reported by US media.
    According to the information published by Bloomberg and the Financial Times, 37 million people were estimated to have caught the virus on Tuesday alone, in contrast to official data counting 3,049 cases on that day, and 62,592 symptomatic infections during the first 20 days of this month.
    Citing two sources involved in the matter, the Financial Times reported that Sun Yang, a deputy director of the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention, presented the shocking figures to a meeting of China’s National Health Commission (NHC) on Wednesday."

    If true and 1% is a possible death rate then 2-3 million people may die.Stay tuned.

    Meanwhile...

    A New Zealand couple is refusing to allow their infant son to undergo lifesaving heart surgery using blood from people vaccinated against Covid-19, showing how vaccine misinformation continues to manifest in unexpected ways two years into global inoculation campaigns.

    The 4-month-old is critically ill with a severe case of pulmonary valve stenosis, a heart valve disorder. The boy’s mother says she wants her son’s operation to take place without delay, but she has demanded that “safe blood” be used, with her lawyer saying that the family was concerned about blood containing traces of vaccines using new mRNA technology.



    New Zealand’s health service is seeking to take temporary custody of a critically ill infant so it can perform a lifesaving operation.

    I regret that we do not have time to do a monthly COVID numbers update this week. We are busy at the USATF Annual Meeting which takes priority. We hope to be back with an update on January 1st. We can tell you that the NJ replacement rate has dropped was below the neutral 1.0 to 0.88.

    The good news is that the NJ Replacement rate in the past week had dropped under 1.0 again to 0.91 which means that COVID is contracting again.
