In 2019 I decided to get the shingles vaccine. I figured that since I had never had a reaction to the flu vaccine, nothing would happen other than a hoped for suppression of another bout with shingles. Two weeks after the first vaccine injection I had a raging sinus headache for days. My doctor said it was allergies and prescribed Flonase. Then my shoulders started to get weak. Within a couple days my whole body was itching, head to toe.

Perhaps the oddest bit of information from J was that the son she gave birth to was also named Kevin. This gentleman was born in 1955. I was born in 1963 when my father was on his third(?) marriage. Was I named for the son my father had abandon in hopes of recreating some alternative reality with a happy ending? Again, this would not have been out of the realm of possibility for my magical thinking father.
The San Francisco Library was also very gracious in scanning a letter to Catlin from A. T. Arrowsmith from 1853 that they had in their archive. Some of the material I was able to glean through email requests have become blog posts on my website. Other material either confirms certain aspects of Catlin’s life or supports my overall timeline.
With the Niro PHEV I’ll have 26 miles of all EV range and approximately 44 miles per gallon when burning gasoline in hybrid mode. Except in the winter when the petrol engine must run to heat up the cabin, I should be traveling in all EV mode when I trek out to the grocery story, Post Office, or even to see one of my local clients. My goal with a new car is to reduce my fossil fuel consumption as much as possible. The Niro PHEV will meet that goal, short of investing in an all EV car.
If Obamacare is repealed by the Supreme Court, California will step into the vacuum. It may not be pretty and I am sure there will be a new tax on something, but California will figure a way to continue with the health insurance subsidies through Covered California.
As the parent of an adult, you must resist the urge to scold or argue with your child. It is a matter of respect, like you would display with any friend or stranger. This was a point, a moment in time he would not be aware of, where I, his father, swallowed my parental superiority and engaged him as an equal. He calmly sat in the car awaiting my return. “It did not occur to you that after 90 minutes your father might be in distress?” “No,” he said, “You always hike slower than me.”
Labor, cheap labor, being the one great palpable need of the Pacific States, – far more indeed than the capital the want and necessity of their prosperity, – we should all say that these Chinese would be welcomed on every hand, their emigration encouraged, and themselves protected by law. Instead of which, we see them the victims of all sorts of prejudice and injustice. Ever since they began to come here, even now, it is a disputed question with the public, whether they should not be forbidden our shores. They do not ask or wish for citizenship; they have no ambition to become voters; but they are even denied protection in person and property by the law.
On January 3, 1857, Dr. Bates authorized the payment of $124,000 to Edwin Rowe of the Pacific Express Company for interest due in New York on July 1st. In sworn testimony, Dr. Bates confesses there was no Controller’s warrant for the disbursement. Dr. Bates left the Treasurer’s office at 1:30 PM while Rowe took charge of the gold coins. Dr. Bates told the clerk to drop the key to the safe at his hotel room later that evening. The clerk, Mr. Bunker, left the office at 3:30 PM while Rowe was still in the office counting the money.
This reissue of the No. 2 will never be as valuable as an original. The clock movement is not as finished as the original Seth Thomas clocks of the 1800s. For instance, the new number 61 movement does not have lantern pinions; it uses a one-piece pinion arbor. The oak wood is nice, but nothing like an original clock case in mahogany. It does perform all the functions of the original, which is to keep accurate time while being easily read from a distance.
The Sacramento Bee remained defiant. They discerned, “If that be the law of the State, then no newspaper will hereafter feel safe in recording the facts connected with any man’s arrest until after he has been convicted.” They concluded, “If Mr. C. H. Gilman is banking on getting $500, or any other sum, from this paper, he had better postpone his hilarity until he hears from the Supreme Court, for certainly The Bee does not propose to permit this matter to rest here. The fight has only commenced.”
