Covid Update

Are you immune after recovering from COVID-19? | MD Anderson Cancer Center

I am now around Day 10 of Covid, and have been feeling “almost” normal. Pat is in about Day 5, and feeling about the same. It is interesting to note that our symptom patterns have been quite different. I hit a temp of 102 for a day or so early on, and she did not. Mine has definitely been very much in my chest, hers not at all. Both of us have had less energy and gotten tired more easily. But all in all, it is our understanding that Omicron, while very easily transmitted, produces milder symptoms than some of the early, more virulent variants. So it’s been a long haul, but hopefully our herd is reaching some kind of equilibrium with the virus.




This Week’s Schedule:

PLEASE NOTE: The wine shop will NOT BE OPEN for tasting THIS weekend (Nov 25-26), but WILL be open as usual NEXT Friday and Saturday (Dec 2-3 a little bit earlier because of the waning daylight: 3:30 – 5:30 pm.)

Also…there will again be No Bread pickup next weekend (Dec 2), but there will be bread again the following weekend, Dec 9-10. Look for an email from Janice a week from Sunday (Dec 4) with details.


Thanksgiving Wishes

There is a lot to be thankful for this year… and a lot of work to do to keep our planet supporting eight billion of us without killing it.

On the plus side, the recent election results have generated a collective exhalation of relief from the numerous elements of moderation that were evident in the results, with a broad public rejection of election denialism and extremism.

Still, we need to keep our fingers crossed and keep working to reestablish effective dialogue and comity in our national and state legislatures, and our society as a whole needs to find ways to inoculate our media platforms against the deliberate deceit which has become such a divisive fixture across the internet.

And of course we are grateful to be finally emerging from the siege of Covid and for the increasing signs of  global progress against climate change we are beginning to see across the globe. We also press our palms together and bow to all of you who have been part of our wine shop community during the past year. It’s your ongoing warmth and conviviality that keep this place going!
