Tonight's ONT Is Sheltering In Place

Welcome to the Thursday ONT. Tonight's ONT is all about things people are doing to amuse themselves (or worse) while sheltering in place. How are you finding the quarantine?


Quarantine.jpg

How are supplies in your area? Honestly, I haven't really noticed many significant shortages. Oh, there have been spot shortages of certain things, but nothing that wasn't replenished the next day or available at a different store anyway. People are learning to be more self reliant as well.

Grow TP.jpg

Of course, some areas have bigger problems, like this grocery store that had to throw away $35,000 worth of food when some woman came in and started deliberately coughing on it. A guy who did similar in a WalMart was charged with terrorism, I think she should be as well.


How about working from home? Anyone else here wish they had bought stock in Zoom last month? Millions of downloads in the past two weeks alone. It's a pretty good program, one that lets you have a bit of fun if you want, like in a networking meeting that I attended yesterday morning...

Networking lion.jpg

Just be aware if someone in your household is working from home, you may need to put on pants...

I'm going to be interested in seeing how many people start working remotely after all this is over. Even things that you wouldn't think would work well remotely are being tried, like this absolutely beautiful rendition of an old-fashioned hymn-done completely by cellphone.


Of course, boredom is always an issue, but it can be overcome with a little ingenuity. Like this guy:


Or this guy, who took his cat bowling.

Or this gal, who is working hard to broaden her culinary horizons.


Or maybe you could just take up collecting something.

How are y'all amusing yourselves? It seems that Ace has been amusing himself with dog videos and he's learned a new word, "creampie"; I know Alberta Oil Peon has been keeping himself busy tinkering around in the garage as seen here:

And also helping his neighbors tune up their farm equipment.


I must say, I do miss sports. The NHL playoff chase was red hot when the season was suspended (just) two weeks ago. I really, really hope this resolves in time for us to get cup puck this year. In the meantime I'm making do.

Just remember folks, this too shall pass. In the meantime, try not to drink too much,


remember to observe proper social distancing when you do go out,

and watch out for dinosaurs.

48 Hi everyone, hope you're all doing well.

I haven't really noticed the shortages much, except that certain aisles at Wal Mart seem really anaemic.

Trying to keep busy but energy levels fluctuate too wildly to get much "good" work done. I am deemed "essential" so I have to go into the office every day where I sit around being bored for the most part.

Depression (mental) is always a problem.

That's all from me. I may pop by in later. Y'all are the finest people on earth.

53 The other part that pisses me off is how NC is presenting the scary horror.

"Median age is 41!!!"

Okay. So the people who have been confirmed to have caught it and not died is 41?

Gosh, so you're saying...

81 Actually,

Milady waffled some tatertots just last night, inspired by some smart culinary blog.

We had discussed that tatertots were just shaped hashbrowns, so why not use hash browns, but we had this bag of tots...

On the plus side, the waffle iron -- which we bought from Wards when we first got together four dozen years ago -- got dusted off, still works as good as the day we bought it, and is ready for more experiments.

We didn't quite use enough tots, so they somewhat fell apart, but with hamburger and cheese and sauce heaped on top it was great. Next time: just gratedtaters.

Republican and Democratic senators unanimously voted to pass a coronavirus relief bill late Wednesday that gives $350,000,000 to assist refugees and migrants.

Earlier this week, it was revealed that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's relief package would include $300,000,000 for refugee assistance.

The new bill, approved by the Senate and now headed to the House, includes an additional $50 million on top of Pelosi's initial $300 million for refugees.

97 How are supplies in your area?

Saw some TP one store's shelves today. Apparently the halfwits have gotten the message that TP is manufactured in the US and there is no need to hoard.

My problem is that the only place I go anymore is the grocery store. So when I do go I spend a lot more than usual. I buy "necessities" like cut flowers, chocolates, $3 a pound mandarins, and gorgonzola cheese. Oh, and Ovaltine, I bought Ovaltine of all things.

99 hey, I get to be the smart guy for once. The bartender poured one bottle, that is 15 50ml shots or 15 of those little miniature/airplane bottles. You don't get 50 shots of Patron from a bottle that does not much more than 15 real pours.

I am not saying it is not impressive but you would be surprised how much some people can drink.

A bottle or two is within the realm of a nightly drink for a lot of people. A bottle that fast is a lot. We can assume it was an entire bottle just for fun and assume it was full strength Patron.

The 50 shots thing reminds me of the bar bet that you can drink three bottles. Then you pull out the miniatures, and take the money.

a bottle a night is nothing for someone who can really put it down. Two

that could put down a bottle plus a night and still run 8 miles a day.

Green Chartreuse, a 110 proof herbal liqueur made by monks. Evil monks, I

there isn't any alcohol in there at all. So I kept drinking it and

But this morning the sun was shining, and I thought the hell with it and went to Publix minus a mask. A lot of people were there and only one woman had a mask on. Paper aisle was out, no eggs, dairy very thin, no butter, scant cheese and very little meat. But I still bought a lot of other stuff. The store is just south of Nashville, btw.

Got two cats here now. Scamp n' Bonnie. Littermates. He's a small Maine Coon at 13 lbs. Who just slid off my lap like cheese offa cracker.

He has a black belt in sleeping, and slept his way straight into the gravity well.

I barely caught him before he departed from controlled flight.

His sister is pure black, and full grown, weighs but six pounds.

How a six pound kitty package can contain two tons of cute confounds the experts, but is nonetheless, true.

Or is it stage left?

ABC's Cecelia Vega was screaming a question at him as he parted the curtain. As always, the question was posed as an insult and was intended as such, not to elicit an answer.

So, while Ace, in an earlier thread, posted a link to Dr Birx's excellent statement denouncing the press's bonfire lies about DNR in hospitals, the clip stopped and did not include her taking questions.

Anybody have a link of Dr Deborah taking the stupid questions?

I have three direct ancestors that were present for the battle, one was a 16 year old German American who served for four more years in the Continental Army, one who was a 24 year old Hessian, captured during the battle, worked as a parolee for a year with the Pennsylvania dutch, was repatriated to the British and sent to South Carolina where he promptly deserted. The third was New Jersey militia who died in camp two days before the battle.

The battle actually took place on the day after Christmas, the Delaware crossing began late Christmas night.

Ahhh, memories. We had a place called "Allgood's" and it was the only place open after the bars closed. Nothing like a pulled pork BBQ sandwich at 3AM that, when you picked it up, the grease ran down your arm and dripped off your elbow. That and their tater tots were the antidote to being too drunk to, well, do anything but eat. The place was originally called "House of BBQ" and was commonly referred to as "The House of Death" or "Allbad's". And they took checks made out to any of those names. Getting banned from the establishment was usually either the result of partaking in fights or, in the case of one of my fraternity brothers, repeatedly jumping on a table and stripping.

323 I'm worried. The other day I efiled my taxes, using one of the efile companies recommended by the IRS - I got there through the IRS site.

They submitted my federal tax form immediately, but said the state one was pending. (I got no email confirmation though, which bothered me.)

Tonight I tried logging into that site and couldn't. I had the correct password - I had written it down. I clicked for help and was told to enter my SSN and phone number. Then they said I didn't have an account with them. I know my phone number was correct because they sent verification texts when I was setting up my account.

I shot them an email. I didn't think I'd be scammed by a company featured right on the IRS website, but who knows (this is the first time I ever efiled and that was only because I have a refund coming and can't get the forms from the library.)

Um, no. A Cuban sandwich is not served on a kaiser roll, nor does it have green olives on it. It's ham, roast pork, Swiss cheese, pickles, mustard on pan cubano, heated in a sandwich press.

memories, indeed. Unrelated to alcohol consumption, at various time in the past I've had jobs - oil field work, long distance driving - where I was up and active when the rest of the world was asleep, and it always fascinated me to see the cities and the roads in the small hours of the night, to find a diner that still served dinners at 3 am. It's a whole different world, that world of the night, and the people who live in it are a different breed.

I know someone in New Orleans who says, every business in N. O. has just laid off everyone. That city is in big big trouble, and it's hard to see how it bounces back from this one. Their main industries were hotels, restaurants, and bars, with the stigma of this disease it'll be years and years before anyone starts to travel there again. And by that time there won't be much left to visit.

the other big entertainment city, Las Vegas, is reportedly deader than it has been since it first got geared up in the 50's.

403 Good evening.

If I may comment on that grocery store that threw away food because some dude sneezed...

Actually, no. Not the story. The attitude.

So I was at a truck stop the other day, at the register buying stuff, talking to the girl and I coughed. I got this look like I was someone who needed to be carted away by guys in hazmat suits. Shit, dude, relax! It's just a cough!

So suddenly all the random coughs, sneezes, hiccups and farts one does throughout any given day (high fives to anyone who can do all at once) are likely to result in, what, a minimum of social ostracization and at max possible arrest? Fuck that bullshit, we shouldn't be piling onto the anarchy.

As for the guy in the story? I don't care if he was being an asshole. Terrorism! Oh fuck that! It's not the dudes fault the managers are a bunch of lemmings and overreacted. That case needs to be thrown out and then he needs to sue the shit out of that store.

Common sense...people spread germs all the time. Wash your veggies.

Well here in MS at the one place I know of that has 'em, my description is accurate. It's true they will press it if you ask. And per AOP's song link description, it has white cheese. Swiss or provolone are both white cheeses.

Gee, do all your hamburgers come made the exact same way? And via Food Network, it was a 10 second search to find a recipe that includes chopped green olives.

The Fed swap lines are spiking as well, ramped up to over $200B in about a week. Peak level was nearly $600B during the peak of the '08 Crash. It will likely hit that again.

And along with the Fed's YOLO spirit, this time they're opening the swap lines with any old shithole country central bank that wants it. Before it was just with the big ones, Bank of Japan, ECB, BoE, Swiss National Bank, and some others.

Now they'll do currency swaps with anybody. Dollars everywhere, all you want.

482 I posted here several months ago a comment about an experience I had many, many years ago while fishing on the Buttermilk (Wexford County, MI). I was working a stretch with some concentration when something bumped the back of my leg rather hard. I glanced down and saw a swimming fur ball floating past me. Rather pleased it wasn't a bear, I clicked my tongue and Mr. Fur Ball splashed and vanished. I spoke about incident with my father about a month ago, telling him that I figured it was a muskrat. He said, son, that wasn't a muskrat, that was an .... otter.

490 I am feeling pretty sure that the urgent care where I am working at in SoCal currently, saw COVI-19 patients as early as the last week in December 2019.
I base my theory on the number of patients that presented with Hallmark symptoms of flu, yet tested negative for both Type-A and Type -B. And there were a number of them through the second week of January 2020. So many in fact, that I began to doubt my own testing methodology.(How can this person be negative...they have the flu for Pete's Sake)

Yet we treated them as flu because clinically...they were.

We've had 3 Commie Cold deaths so far and about 3k tested. Funny how they don't mention any of those tests' *results*

They only test ppl who have severe symptoms. Hmmm. So, the "death toll* (OMFG!!!) is terribly skewed-- upward. Funny, that.

The entire world on government....not self imposed shelter/lockdown?

If we could quickly draw blood from those in the last 3 months that tested negative for A-B but were diagnosed as "Flu-Like-Symptoms" and did "IMMUNO-ASSAYS to detect the presence of COVI-19 antibodies (meaning they had it and their auto-immune systems killed it.)

If you turn normal convention on its head, then you can make the same jokes, but because they don't have any relation to reality the jokes and the scenes fall flat.

My favorite part (that I still laugh at) was the firing of the meteor gun.

Kril's Controller : ...We have a break in the Frontier.

Lord Kril : Fire the meteor gun!

Xur : My *DEAR* Ko-Dan friends... Lest we forget, it was your own Emperor who granted to me command of this armada... For only *I* hold the secret to the Frontier... Only *I* know the location of the Starfighter base... And therefore, ONLY *I* WILL GIVE THE ORDER TO FIRE!

Lord Kril : [bows his head in insencere submission] Forgive me, Xur.

Xur : [smirking] You are forgiven, Commander Kril. Meteor gunner... fire!

635 The 80's were actually a pretty good decade for
movies, with cultural relevance today in genres like coming of age teen
movies, action, horror, almost everything.



May have been the last decade of good movie making in terms of creativity and just plain old fun.

Posted by: OneEyedJack at March 27, 2020 12:00 AM (z79tQ)

you could pick a single year in the 80s and have more culturally relevant movies than most of the 21st Century. I am not saying they are all bad by any means. But for many reasons beyond being bad they can never be as culturally relevant.

Hell, some people think Back to the Future is a top 20 film all time. I saw it was just another good 80s flick.

638 @607 May have been the last decade of good movie making in terms of creativity and just plain old fun.

I would guess that it was a combination of three things -

1.) The relative optimism of the Reagan era, particularly coming off of the '70s, with Watergate and the "malaise".
2.) Political Correctness wouldn't get going until the end of the decade
3.) The summer blockbuster existed (Star Wars generally being acknowledged as the movie that started the trend), but hadn't yet grown into the all-encompassing monstrosity that it's become over the decades.

There is a link to an Australian newspaper/site with a video. Since January, the Chinese have been up front with defining mild symptoms as nothing to recover pneumonia. Other countries report mild symptoms can scar the lungs, which pneumonia can do. Also there are new papers out showing nerve damage in the nose and tongue along with the virus hiding out in the nervous system. I've read the papers.
I've been following this since mid January and don't watch the MSM or get news from there. I follow the evidence. I'm not viewing the data, information, and evidence through party lenses on this. That is a terrible mistake being made by all sides.

708 AlaBAMA, I've mentioned before, how divided the critics were about Blade Runner when it first came out.

I remember Gary Franklin, movie reviewer of CBS' LA channel 2, gave it a bad review and mentioned how much he hated the 'extreme violence' in it. I'm still not sure exactly what he was talking about...

Thank you all for your kind words. Leela was beautiful, and she had no doubts about that.

(She was named after the Doctor Who Classic companion played by Louise Jameson, as they both had the same "kill it first" attitude.)

What do you think she means when she sings "goes down easy"?

That Sesame Street segment was in a DVD set some family bought for the littl'un. It was striking to me how unsexy Katy Perry looked in a short skirt on her appearance on the show that was infamously cut, while Feist looked so fetching in her jeans and blouse.

I would say Jaws started it but Star Wars took it to another level. Even E.T. had relevance with the kids I doubt many movies made today could match.

Send me photos of it, and very well-measured dimensions.

Betcha I can send you back plans for "trim to fit", that'll work in your new space.

You might have to go from a King to a Queen, or Queen to a Full.

But you ought not have to lose the essential-ness of your log bedframe.

And in your area? Finding a talented wood-butcher has better odds there, than most other large cities in the Lower 48.

Bonus. You could very well gain some art-pieces made from the trimmed-scrap taken from the original.

Gotta give it to the granola-ites and all around hippies up yonder. They don't lack for the artistry or creativity.

Alas though, they often lack for good taste, sensible design and the slightest bit of common sense.

Choose your hippies carefully.

I've never had to care for a saguaro, but it's my understanding that they're one of the few cacti that won't root from a "clipping" like that. Supposedly you can replant the rooted base and it may start over.

You'll probably want to do some research on your own. I have what gardeners would call a "black thumb".

Want to see BttF redone - Drop a lot of those little foreshadowings into #1 that they could do in #2 because they knew where they were going. CGI the gal from #2 & #3 over gal in #1 (or other way, I don't care).

Nevertheless, the best time-travel film, perhaps, but certainly the greatest time-travel trilogy.

818 For the record once again, I've always been in favor of the power being given to cities and counties to deal with this over the state government and the federal government. The federal government should have dealt with things under their purview like borders, international air travel, testing, tracing, tracking, not sticking citizens with 5 and 6 figure medical bills, ect.

After this bill passed by the Senate, I'm convinced this pandemic is being used by both parties (not Trump) as a Bolshevik/Communist takeover.

Georgia Governor Kemp has done a great job leaving it up to the counties and cities to decide to lockdown or not. Other governors couldn't wait to seize power, which is not good.

That is kind of weird I must say. I mentioned Fernet Branca upthread. I thought someone who has tried it would chime in. I won't compare it to Sloe Gin as I don't recall ever drinking the stuff. But if you thing Jaegermeister is harsh/bad, Fernet is ten times that stuff.

BTW, I have purchased two bottles of the stuff but not in a long time. It is only for people who like crazy stuff and can't believe that lost shot tasted like that so they have to try it again.

The booze is not really that bad if you like to try off the wall stuff. It is from Italy but the Argentines are the ones that really love it. I can see why they mix it with Coke though a straight shot will clear things up. It is kind of a digestif. I would compare it to Jaegermeister without the sugar and much more of a punch in the face.

I'm not much for movies made from William Shakespeare's works but damn if Kenneth Branagh didn't nail Shakespeare with his 1989 'Henry V'. Saw that in the theaters and the scene of the Battle of Agincourt was one of the most realistic takes on that battle in cinema history: Mud, slime and gore.

Two battles with two memorable quotations. The night Battle of Harfleur with its 'Once more into the breech, dear friends, once more into the breech' along with Henry's St Crispin's Day speech before The Battle of Agincourt, a speech often quoted just about everywhere.

Superbly done Shakespeare on film.

If Chief Justice Roberts wanted to practice in FL, they'd make him take the FL Bar.

I took it, after I'd been admitted to practice already for 20 years. I had the FL BAR/BRI books, & I meant to study for it...but I never got around to it. I passed, with the equivalent score of a C-.

856 on the Chinese flu front, we've had our first death in my county, and it is someone I know: teacher in her 70s, that my kids had when they were in elementary.

Nice woman, good teacher, loved kids, and was still working, so a lot of people are pretty cut up about it in the neighborhood.

Now, since a good chunk of the county works at Dulles airport, and a bunch of people were sick as hell in January and February (with what tested negative as flu, and was the worst cold most of us have ever had--went through our house right after Christmas, but we have a relative who is a Dulles employee). I'm wondering whose kids went to school and gave it to the teachers? The woman who died was one of three teachers from the same school cluster in our end of the county that have been diagnosed.

A lot of the people in the neighborhood freaking out that they might get it unless we switch to martial law may have already had it, IMO

Saturated table salt solution rinse, 4-6 times a day, keep it in mouth around infected area as long as you can stand it, good swishing action...
-------

Establish how much salt constitutes the saturated mix, with a given amount of water. Experiment until you have the right microwave timing to warm it to a comfortably warm temperature, not hot. That makes it a little easier, and more effective.

875 Here's the deal.

Were someone to sell me a 50 tablet bottle of 500mg Vicodin.

I'd be looking for them to sell me a refill, in about two years time.

MOSTLY, simple aspirin does the trick for me. I'm a lucky one, for whom aspirin is a "miracle drug".

The Vicodin is for those rare occasions (usually, sub-zero Blue Northers blowing in as Winter Fronts), that completely shatter the long before broken bones in my left tibia and ankle.

Even then, I'll snap a tablet in half, and chase it with a slowly sipped shot of bourbon.

I do not crave the Vicodin.

But when it's Break Glass In Case Of Emergency time, I'm sure grateful if it's there.

I looked that one up. Updating Shakespeare doesn't do it for me. I'm an old fogey, I guess. One of the more interesting cinematic Shakespeare's was the 1968 version of 'Romeo and Juliette' where the leads were very young, still teenagers, as they should have been. Most productions/films have much older 'stars'. Olivia Hussey (Juliette) was only 16 or 17 when the film was released; Leonard Whiting (Romeo) was only 17. Young lovers, indeed. Their ages added to the realism of the drama.

Yeah, well then, I'm the exception that proves the rule.

You'd have been amazed at the physical self-torture I put myself through to "rehab", when the professional "rehab" girls with their elastic bands and "maybe 80% recovery" projections caused me to DIY my own rehab.

Worked my way up from 1/8th mile to 14 miles on the (actual, not "stationery") bicycle. That took a year.

And another year to lose the damned limp.

I've PROVEN my ability to self-regulate and self-wean, if needed.

Your "experience", though HONORED, doesn't mean a damn thing where I'm concerned.

I'm not your experience. Fact is, I'm likely far beyond it.

I've been hit with morophne in the '70s, and Demerol in the '90s.

Both were in the E.R., and did what they had to do. I had suffered shattering injuries in both instances, and the pain relief was necessary.

Pills-wise, I've never taken anything stronger than Vicodin, and hope never to require more.

I've turned down Oxycontin, because I'm a coward, that way.

Our present system is so freakin' biased against a responsible patient such as me, as to be a crime against pain, itself.

And as politically aware as I am, I'm really not quite all that sure here, as to where to direct the hate.

If I can see it, I can hit it.

OK, I'm in the heart of a real bad workday. Real bad. We've let a lot of good men off the payroll (temporarily, we hope) today. Real, real, real bad fuckin' day.

But, in the middle of this nightmare, from about 5-10pm, I had some other stuff to do. We took the baby to see her great-aunt and others at her house, because she's probably going to die soon.

We had the car packed with mom, dad, kids, and the baby, AGAINST THE RULES.

The house we went to was also packed with people, AGAINST THE RULES.

Then, went to my Mannix's place to feed his cat while he's out of town, and the landlord had sealed the place, so I had to break into that bitch, even though I have a key*. Obviously, AGAINST THE RULES.

Somewhere in all this I managed to negotiate the private sale of a certain object which is AGAINST THE RULES.

Now, all I've done today is try to be a good family man, but I've been breaking the law harder than I've done since I was a little ruthless gang-bangin' ass homeboy back in the day.

How times do change. For the immeasurable worse. This place is fucking gay.

899 The worst hangover I ever had was from....white wine. I attended a wedding, at a private home. The details remain fuzzy, as in I don't remember if there was any traditional liquor around, but I ended up drinking 2 entire bottles of white wine, passed out on the floor (away from the populated area, heh). When I finally woke up due to a glass of cold water being poured on my head by my wife, I felt like I had been run over by a truck. Worst, most painful headache ever, my stomach felt like I had drank some Drano, my mouth was sandpaper-dry, my eyes bleeding like Biden's. Took me about 3 days to feel somewhat normal again, and this when I was in my mid-20's prime. Haven't had a drop of white wine since...

Depending on the white, it can have a lot of sugar in it. Sugar is what gives one that damnable hangover in small quantities and is also why sweet cocktails, like Rum and real Coke or 7 and 7, give one a damnable hangover; it's one big reason why I can't stomach sweet vermouth Manhattans.

I saw the HG when I was a kid. It was fun watching Meadowlark Lemon, Curly and the rest of those guys. When my kids were little, I took them to see the HG as well. They were as fun to watch in the 80s as they were in the 60s.

I have been thinking about all the churches being closed, or in my case open but without services. I heard/read that during the Black Death, the Catholic Church lost half of their priests. Afterward, they ordained a lot of guys that were not really fit. Now days, they cannot afford to suffer that high attrition.

They were pretty huge in the late 70s and early 80s, I saw them live once and it was a lot of fun. My other recollection was when we didn't get in, that was a sad day. The good part was we were in a long traffic tie up waiting to get in and found out by CB radio that the event was sold out. The CB was a smart phone, a cool app, and twitter as well since everyone was in on what you had to say.

Also the Globetrotters teamed up with Scooby Doo and his pals a few times, that was pretty cool when watching cartoons.

I live here. I say screw that. We made our bed with our elected dunces, let us live with it.

Our idiotic governor, Fredo the Elder, is blaming Trump for his own self not buying respirators a few years ago; he had to tell conservatives to get the hell out of the state because they're not welcome here/push killing babies later and later in a pregnancy/ban plastic shopping bags instead. Real priorities, right?

Our moron of a city health commissioner was virtue signaling a while back when this Wuhan Virus crap started. He held a 'hug a Chinaman' rally because 'that's who we are'. Bill deBolshevik was uttering the same stupid nonsense about Chinese New Year and how it's so important to our Chinese residents and we should support them by eating out in Chinese restaurants. He's the mayor but he likes to point his blaming fingers at everybody else for his ineptitude and sheer stupidity.

Why should the rest of the country help us out again? Like the old saying goes, you help us out again and you'll get more stupid shit from us -- again. There's no such concept among our pols as preparing/planning for a rainy day.

They'll love his 'no bail' law, too. Crime in NYC has skyrocketed thanks to that excrement of a law. But like the good commie he his, deBolshevik jiggles with the stats. If you have the cops not bother to arrest lawbreakers, crime doesn't go up, right? The subways have sunk back to the bad old days of the late 70's-early 80's, a very dangerous place to be nowadays.

not a criticism mind you, the press is pushing that he is the Trump alternative this week. Also he would get 45 percent just because. But same with Joe Biden, he could get 43 percent without improving at all.

do that and don't look back My happiest days by far were while fishing. We would go fishing after school like the Little Rascals. I would not trade my childhood for anything.

I was thinking of getting a license just the other day. I even checked out a few ponds just to throw the lures around in. I normally throw them back but that is just me. Some say it is mistake and few live that are returned. I don't know about that but I even filed off a hook barb as to not hurt the fish. Don't misunderstand me here. There is nothing wrong with catching a load of fish and cooking them up I did that many a time. I was just talking about what I did that last few times. I think I am just lazy and don't want to clean fish.

1095 Taco night tonight! We are doing the remote cocktail party thing at 7, and I'm in charge of margaritas for my bride while she video chats with her buddies, then she is making me tacos. Quick, easy and goes well with margaritas. I'm planning to wear my sombrero, a big fake mustache from last Halloween and ceremonial ammo belts draped over my shoulders.

They have bled over their propaganda into the market, that was recovering nicely.

So now they have to kill it. You see, they can't have us recover and see exactly what happened, who is responsible and how people are outright lying about the impact to kill our economy.

Fauci said that last week somewhere. Fortunately, I already take it, so I have plenty. I was expecting a run on D3 when I went shopping, but there was plenty there. Zinc and Vit C are hard to find, though.

My state, MD, now has 580 confirmed cases and one death, a 0.7% fatality rate.
