The next vaccine on our list of childhood immunizations is the Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (MMR) vaccine. MMR vaccines are given to infants twice, once at age 12-15 months old, and again at age 4-6 years. Adults can also receive the vaccine if it wasn't available when they were younger. Most people that work in healthcare settings must receive this vaccine unless they can show documentation of having the vaccine already or having all three diseases in the past.
We've been covering childhood immunizations over the last few weeks. This week we will take a look at a disease that children are vaccinated against, which has been in the news lately.
I've attended a slew of funerals from grand farewells to a funeral that wasn't scheduled. But Uncle Elvin's funeral was sweet. Elvin Shum wasn't really my uncle. He wasn't an uncle of the Kansas Woman either, but was still “Uncle Elvin.”
Have you ever sat and watched other kids or adults play baseball or softball and wondered what it would be like? Has your disability or your child’s disability gotten in the way of having fun?
A couple of weeks ago I received a 9mm SCCY pistol, pronounced Sky, for testing. After receiving the SCCY I contacted Kurt Carpenter, a Cleveland Gun Club member to go to the club and put this new pistol thru its paces.

The past few weeks we've been looking at each of the childhood immunizations administered to infants, toddlers and school age children. The next vaccine on that list is the Haemophilus Influenzae Type B immunization, more easily noted as Hib vaccine.
Visiting Dr. Patel, my primary care doc, is rarely an adverse experience. My scheduled “maintenance check” is low-stress due to his homey approach in a years-long relationship. I appreciate that he remembers me.
In the last many years I have seen just about every 1911 pistol design produced. There are those cheaper made pistols that sell for around $500 and the price continues to go up according to quality.

For any readers getting a Georgia driver's license or renewing, be advised. Georgia may well grant you the privilege but it won't be pretty.
The Cherokee County Republican Party has a blurb on its website about Rep. Sam Moore, who won the 22nd District house seat earlier this month following the death of veteran lawmaker Calvin Hill. Among other tidbits about Moore are his hobbies, including this: “Playing jokes … watch out. You have been warned!”
All the snow and cold winter weather we have received over the past few weeks has caused some of the shrubbery in our landscapes to appear as they are dying. We have received quite a few calls about the leaves on evergreen plants that have turned brown. In most cases, this is probably what is referred to as “winter bronzing.”
There are different programs out there that will tell you what hardware (the equipment) and software (the programs) you have. If you are like most people when you bought your computer you knew and saw the specifications of what it had, but most likely threw that paper away or have no idea where it is now.
One of the childhood immunizations that adults may still be familiar with is the DTaP vaccine. This shot covers diphtheria, tetanus and acellular pertussis. This vaccine is given ideally to infants if their shots are on schedule, and children up to seven years old if they require catch up shots.
We got a dose of being weather marooned in the last weather “event” to pass through Georgia. Two weeks earlier the nation laughed up its sleeve at pictures of stalled Georgia traffic, abandoned vehicles and tales of people holding out in cars for hours.
These are phishing calls and are not real repair companies or Microsoft. If you get a call saying your computer has problems or a virus or that it is messing up the network/Internet, hang up.
If you have been around guns and collecting for many years you probably have heard the phrase, pre 64 Winchester Model 70 rifle.
This year’s weather has caused a big impact on cattle throughout the southeast. The cold winter weather has certainly added additional stress on cattle herds, but another issue relates back to all the rain we received last summer.
