  • Reducing stress

    The English language is certainly a conundrum.
    When ever I am fretting I get really stressed out, I use fretwork to reduce the stress
    There is nothing quite as relaxing as fretting.
    Sure I could take a long country stroll, winding around a path, but there is something satisfying about taking a complicated intricate piece and fretting away the hours.

    So why isn't fretting fretful?
    I have scrolled the internet for hours and never found the answer.

    Why is it even called fretwork?

    Why do some stringed instruments have frets and others don't?
    Well you shouldn't sweat when you fret
    It is relaxing I bet
    If it isn't yet
    Then scrolling isn't your pet

      My wife and I got the Moderna vaccine with our second shot last week. We had no reaction after the first shot but both of us had some body and fatigue for two days after the 2nd dose.

      Here in Mid-Michigan, my wife & I (both 65) got our first shot - the Pfizer one - last Sunday; with our second one scheduled for March 21st. Both of us were a little fatigued that evening... went to be early. Next day, just had a sore arm where we received the shot. Hope it's that way with the second...
