This is what happens when throwing batting practice and you don’t get out of the way of the ball!

I was actually behind a screen, and I think I got because I was complacent.   I was thinking I was protected so I wasn’t prepared for a ball right back at me.   I believe if I did not have the screen I would have been in proper position to defend myself by catching the ball.   At least, that’s what I believe!!!!!

BEWARE!   Fake Covid Vaccination Cards…..

As Covid-19 vaccine mandates proliferate in the U.S. and Europe, so are swindlers selling bogus vaccination certificates.

The U.S. government has said federal workers must be vaccinated or submit to regular testing, mask requirements and social distancing. California requires state employees to be vaccinated or tested at least once a week. New York state will soon follow and New York City plans to require proof of vaccination for customers and staff at restaurants and gyms.

Employers such as Walt Disney Co. , Walmart Inc., Microsoft Corp. and Tyson Foods Inc. are requiring vaccination for at least some of their employees.

Proof of vaccination is required in parts of the U.S. and Europe to dine indoors, go to museums and attend large sporting events.

The spread of such rules has created a market for counterfeit certificates for the unvaccinated. In recent weeks, schemes to sell illegal proof of vaccination have multiplied on social-media sites, messaging apps such as Telegram and on the dark web, according to government investigators and cybersecurity experts.

In the U.S., fake vaccination cards purportedly issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have appeared for sale on sites such as Amazon, eBay and Etsy. In May, officers arrested a bar owner in California for allegedly selling fake vaccination cards costing $20 each. The alleged perpetrator was charged with identity theft, forging government documents and falsifying medical records.

“While we do not have definitive numbers, we are seeing more of these types of schemes recently,” a Justice Department spokesman said.

Wake Up Song of the Day:    Paper Lace “The Night Chicago Died“.   It’s a “One Hit Wonder Monday” song!   For our purposes, defined as a singer or group known for only one song to chart on the U.S. Billboard Top 40.   Or, even if a second song is on the chart, it is overwhelmed and generally forgotten because of the success of the “One Hit Wonder”.   In 1974, Paper Lace (from England where the group had several hits) topped the charts for One Week in the USA and it was their One Hit Wonder song.   They also recorded the first version of Billy Don’t Be Hero which became a One Hit Wonder song for Bo Donaldson and the Heywoods.
