Admittedly I haven’t been paying as much attention to the topic as I should be, but Sen. McConchie (NW burbs)posted last night that we’re 44th in % of vaccine doses used. Looking at the NYT, we’re also in the bottom 5 states in terms of % getting at least one shot. We had done so well in terms of control all summer- what has happened?

This might be already known, but Crain’s reported this morning that it will soon be bye-bye to the JRTC for some agency offices after the State’s purchase of the Chicago West Loop building at 555 W. Monroe. Crain’s story is behind the paywall so I had to use the Trib link:
Completely non-political: This has been a great winter for birders in Illinois. Lots of far-northern species such as snowy owls, evening grosbeaks, etc., showing up around the state. Get out and enjoy!
Tribune had an interesting editorial today regarding abuses when members of the legislature resign and county chairman pick their replacement. They used two recent Democrats as examples. Did they not mention Bill Brady, a Republican, because they didn’t know or didn’t care?
==Labs are the best. Just one dog lover’s opinion.==
Make that two dog lover’s opinion. Have had 5 of them over the years. They are perfect dogs both outside for fun and inside the house for snuggling and protection. I know your pup is lucky it got chosen by you and vice versa, Gohawks123.
looks like ken griffin is losing some money on GameStop!

I agree about labs. Any dog that you bond with is the best you can have. Whenever I am away from home for more than a week my yellow lab will whine at the window. The wife calls and puts me on speaker phone and our girl relaxes and lays down on my side of the bed for the night. My pillow usually smells like her.
Mark Buehrle stays on the Hall ballot. Now let’s keep talking about him because he deserves to be in. just compare him to some others who have made it in and you can see he deserves it.

Here is my lab being a lab.

Have you ever sat at the vet and watched people come in with their dogs? All kinds of shapes and sizes, but everyone thinks their dog is best! We have our first shelter dog - it is fun to sit and try to figure out what dogs make up his heritage. Love him to pieces. We had a crazy cocker, and a beautiful collie before him They were all the best (well, that cocker was crazy but we loved him all the same.)

I just received a text from Verizon stating that the 217 overlay area code (447) starts going into effect Feb. 27. On that day, all calls within the 217 require entering the area code as new 447 area code numbers will begin to be assigned then.
I agree on labs as we now have our third black lab. I really like they they sleep well and like to lay by your side. One word of warning on your pup, labs are easy to train when young but they truly are the axiom that you cannot teach an old dog. To clarify, they will not change/learn after the age of 3.
