    You caught the vid?

    My wife had it and had very similar symptoms as you, the fatigue lasted for about a month.

    Apparently my kids and I had it too, but we were all asymptomatic.

    It's nuts how varying this thing can be.

    You're young. I'm not into the critical age range, but I'm kind of on the edge of it. I think FD would be in that range, as well, so a moderate-severe case is more likely. I expect that I'd survive it without too much difficulty, but it could knock me down for a good long time, and that I do not want.

    I'll take that as a positive. A month I can cope with.

    I've seen a hedgehog and a squirrel in the garden. I thought at this time of year they would be hibernating. Is this global warming?

    Apparently the UK squirrels don't hibernate either - so much for my knowledge! Apparently they are much less active (and hence much less likely to be seen - especially in cold weather) in winter when food is scarce. In cold weather they will curl up and use their bushy tail as a blanket to keep warm in their den.

    I've been making like a squirrel. I curled up in my den and used my bushy tail to keep warm.

    I reckon I'm operating at about 90%. I'm fine when I'm up and about but every so often I just crash and need to go for a nap. But I like naps, so I'm good with it.

    In the past month we've had:

    • two black bear visits (he enjoys the pig nut hickory tree we have - ate every last one, and our woodpecker's suet)
    • pair of happy red foxes jumping around the yard
    • coyote traveling up the other side of a brook we have in our yard
    • and yesterday at dusk a mink jumping in and out of the water catching fish!

    And I live about an hour from NYC - wow! CT wildlife variety is on the rise!

    I gotta get me a couple of trail cams!

    Re: Post Race!

    He was probably quite thankful for the suet. Did he just eat the suet, or did he eat the feeder, too?

    The resurgence of wildlife in the New England area is astonishing to me. I grew up in southern NH, spending an hour or two walking in the woods every day that it wasn't raining (darn near every single day....seriously). Based on the tracks, I saw pretty much every animal that lived in that area, which was a biologists dream. I had a couple miles of woods, swamp, brook, and meadows, stretching up the valley behind our house. It was all flood plain easement, too, so nobody could build on there. In twenty years, I saw ONE other person out there who hadn't come out there with me.

    In that time, deer were around, mustelids of all sorts were fairly common, but no bear, no moose, no coyotes, and no turkeys. Now all of those species have moved in.

    I just had a thought: Do you think it could have been me?

    @shaggy - yup - you are the Johnny Appleseed of the fish world! Our non-American viewers will have to look up that reference!

    Funny thing is he grabbed the suet cage and dragged it down to the hickory tree. Second time he did that same thing - dragged it down there - and our son got pics of him eating it. We were blaming monster squirrels for opening the cage 50 feet away from the feeder area

    We've even had bobcats as well - just not a frequent! Thus the need for a trail cam! I've lived in this house since 1972 - the wildlife increase is amazing. We have beaver damming up the woods a mile from my house, and state laws protect their activity (which is great!).

    Don't be calling me that.

    You probably aren't aware of it, but that particular phrase is used to deride people in fresh water fish biology. It has to do with the fact that all kinds of invasive fish species have been put all over the place, which we now regret.

    Code:

    Suet has to be the ultimate winter treat for a bear.

    We've even had bobcats as well - just not a frequent!
    Of course. That's because I wasn't there.

    I've been with so many people who have said, "oh look, there's a bobcat!!" I look...and they say, "oh, it just left."

    They aren't pulling my leg, either. I've been a few seconds late to seeing a bobcat more often than I can say. I've seen everything else, including the very first coyote ever seen in the Everglades. I didn't KNOW it was the very first coyote ever seen in the Everglades, I just knew it was a coyote. Only a few days later did I find out that the park was all atwitter (before Twitter was a thing) over the coyote being there. I thought it so unsurprising that I hadn't even told anybody, but lots of others had seen it, too, and they DID report it.

    So American litigation tendencies extend to the wildlife?! Any time a bear sees something he doesn't like, he'll suet.

    I was out at my sisters' place one time when an otter came out of a tiny, decorative, pond in their lawn. So...yeah, that happens. There weren't even any fish in that pond, though there were salamanders.

    There was a soda sold back in the 80s and 90s, which may still be around, called Jolt. It was advertised as "All the sugar and twice the caffeine."

    In my case, caffeine has no noticeable effect on me.

    Here was a video from New Years Eve 2009 into 2010 where my wife's parrain, RIP, was playing You Shook Me All Night Long: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lQauZdwhZek

    My wife and I are in that video quite a bit, but only accidentally (we're in a big crowd). I'll never forget that Ross was so proud because he had just bought a wireless guitar chord so he could walk out into the crowd while he was playing his guitar.
