Christmas lights

Has anyone ever hired someone to install Christmas lights on the outside of their house?
I'd love to do that this year. Any recommendations?

Flu shot

Just curious - How many folks get the flu shot. Im late 50's, active, non-smoker, non-drinker, no health issues. Last 5 years I have gotten the flu shot but toying with the idea of skipping it this year. Knock on wood have not had the flu in 20 years - every time I get the shot I walk around with a sore arm for 5 days. Just re-thinking it this year. What is everyone else doing?

Cat hit on Rockport Road

In case anyone is looking for a missing cat, this afternoon I noticed a black long haired cat apparently hit by a car on Rockport Road between Karrsville and Mt. Bethel. I moved it off the road onto the grass.
