Saturday Overnight Open Thread (10/17/20)

The Saturday Night Joke

A 6 year old and a 4 year old are playing in the yard.
The 6 year old asks, "You know what? I think it's about time we started learning to cuss". The 4 year old nods his head in approval.
The 6 year old continues, "When we go in for breakfast, I'm gonna say something with hell and you say something with ass".
The 4 year old agrees with enthusiasm
When the mother walks into the kitchen and asks the 6 year old what he wants for breakfast, he replies,
"Aw, hell, Mom, I guess I'll have some Cheerios".
WHACK!
He flies out of his chair, tumbles across the kitchen floor, gets up, and runs upstairs crying his eyes out, with his mother in hot pursuit, slapping his rear with every step. His mom locks him in his room and shouts, "You can stay there until I let you out!"
She then comes back downstairs, looks at the 4 year old and asks with a stern voice, "And what do YOU want for breakfast, young man?"

"I don't know", he blubbers, "but you can bet your ass it won't be Cheerios."

The ONT Is Always Looking Out For YouTM

A break from tradition is also entirely acceptable when it comes to the actual recipe of the s’more itself. A sandwich of two graham crackers, toasted marshmallow, and ½ chocolate bar is undeniably tasty, but certainly does not represent the limits to which the s’more horizon can extend. A few swaps and tweaks can actually elevate the classic treat to new heights.

Over the last few weeks, with help from various friends and family members, I’ve experimented with a number of these s’more “recipe” variations and upgrades. The fun part of the testing was doing it sort of buffet-style, laying out all the possible ingredients and allowing everyone to sample and rank their favorite combinations. Our findings were dutifully filed (with sticky fingers), and you’ll find our recommendations grouped into the four categories below.

Earlier this summer we switched Reese's Peanut Butter Cups for the Hersey Bar. Dang right tasty.

While hiking out in the great outdoors, be careful. Even the most innocuous situations can be dangerous.

While out running near his Utah home, photographer Kyle Burgess came upon what he believed was a litter of bobcat kittens. He took some video of the babies and went on his way.

Soon he noticed that a big angry cat began following him. As Burgess turned himself around to face her, he realized his error. The kittens that he believed to be bobcats, were actually baby cougars. And their mama was dead set upon protecting them at any cost. Wisely, Burgess began walking backwards, making himself seem bigger and louder in order to scare her away. Unfortunately for him, cougars are known for their stubborn disposition and she followed him down the trail for six long minutes. It’s only when Burgess tossed a few rocks in her direction that she decided to turn around and go back to her cubs.

The ONT Musical Interlude

Maybe I'm old and my Give-A-Shit-Meter is broken. As I really don't give a rat's ass. Kraft Mac and Cheese in a heated controversy.

“Angry Moms And QAnon Believers Attacked Kraft’s ‘Send Noods’ Campaign For Sexualizing Mac ‘N’ Cheese”

Unfortunately, this is not just a nonsensical string of randomly selected words, but rather an actual thing that happened. There’s clearly a lot to unpack here, so let’s dive in.

This week’s chaotic subplot to the broader End of Western Civilization narrative that’s dominated much of 2020 all started with a tongue-in-cheek campaign from Kraft Macaroni and Cheese. The iconic mac and cheese brand has been cheekier in recent months, testing the water with stunty campaigns. A few months ago, Kraft wanted you to eat their signature product for breakfast like a college student and/or depressed adult, and now they want you to send nudes — or rather, “noods.”

The “Send Noods” campaign was coy play on the popular “send nudes” meme, “encourag[ing] adults to send free noodles to loved ones to provide comfort and make them smile,” Lynne Galia, a spokesperson for Kraft Heinz, told BuzzFeed News.

Fortunately, no significant injuries or death occurred in this situation. Genius Award Winner.

As I was scrolling through the paperwork, I noticed something both hilarious and infuriating. Apparently, the renter eventually found the vehicle later on October 12th, and reported it to the police district. A conscientious moron police officer took the information and made an auto recovery report.

Unfortunately for the WCSD officer and the renter, the jackass police officer never sent the report to NCIC, which means it was never taken out of stolen status.

Meanwhile, the renter was stopped on the side of the highway, detained by police, for driving a vehicle which was no longer in stolen status. I explained the situation to the sheriff’s deputy, and after laughing at my department’s incompetence, assured me he would let the renter continue on his way.

What is a park model trailer?
Posted by: Gref at October 17, 2020 10:03 PM (AMIL/)

A "park model" trailer is a mobile home meant to be set up in a mobile home park. Mostly single-wides, I think. They look superficially appealing, and are comfortable enough, but they depreciate like a car does, and some parks have restrictions on things like working on your own car, or gardening, parties, kids and so forth.

the ice cream place / gift shop is a license to print money...I mean who doesn't want the "I went to Hell & all I got was this lousy T-shirt" shirt

Posted by: Alberta Oil Peon at October 17, 2020 10:30 PM (R13uH)



'Round here, a "Park Model" is a trailer, capable of being towed and thus, travel, but not suited to the classic RV lifestyle.

Lacking any kind of water tank, black or grey water tank, it's an absolute requirement that one find a site offering all of those connections as Available Infrastructure.

Further, they lack a generator, so being able to plug into 50 amp service is a must.

They are intended to be PARK-ed, long-ish term, in either actual Mobile Home Parks, or RV parks on a longer-term pad rental basis.

They're also fairly popular with rural land owners who are setting forth to site-build their new Estate Home. The Park Model is the temporary living quarters for +/- a year, while the McMansion is being constructed.

A lot of player contracts have bonus clauses for appearing in the pro-bowl. Will they have a selection process even if they aren't going to play the game? There's real money off the table for some players if they don't.

180 I saw a movie tonight called "The Accountant", about an itinerant hitman who also can do your taxes. He owns an Airstream equipped with an original Jasper Johns and an arsenal that would make a Seal Team proud.

Maybe I'll start with an Airstream and see where this goes.

182 Joel Grey & Jennifer both skipped college because their show biz careers had already taken off.

Joel's father told him, "When you graduate from UCLA in 4 years, you'll be VERY lucky if you find a job that pays you the $500/week you make now."

That was circa 1954. Makes sense to me.

Dad was like "Gasoline powered mowers are a lot easier to use, but these work fine. Don't let the grass get too long though..". I remember watching my brother cutting the grass with it. Thought he was gonna cry. LOL!! Lesson learned though, he didn't break any more mowers.

265 I've been pretty skeptical of QAnon over the years . . .

. . . but this sudden massive and obviously co-ordinated attack on them is starting to make me take the big Q a lot more seriously.

In just the past couple of weeks I've seen "debunkings" of Q on mainstream media, on a horror gaming podcast out of the UK, on a roleplaying game blog, on a skeptical podcast . . . and now someone's decided to accuse Q of attacking Mac 'n Cheese.

Basically, these debunkings and counterattacks and accusations are making me start to believe QAnon. Good work, Tides Foundation.

I use one of these on purpose!

I was using a recent model, but it's kind of rickety. I found an old one at a yard sale recently, circa 1938 according to the bar that protects the blade. I sharpened it up and it works awesomely.

Good exercise for a gal that sits at a desk all day, and the cut is very nice.

278 I attended a high end Tequila tasting once upon a time. There were samples and a slide show.
The slide show was of the cactus being harvested.
Then, they put those and all other ingredients (probably some sugar, etc.) in to this big stone vat, which was below ground, maybe 8 feet across and 20 feet down. A huge vat.
Then, this guy in a speedo jumps in. Starts doing the dog paddle.
He is agitating the ingredients.

336 2 of my pet peeves.
chicken fajitas. Sure, to each his own but fajitas is a word that means something.

and I refuse to call the grilled onion and pepper mix at Chipotle "fajitas" How did that become a thing? I mean I know how, but still. It started with chicken fajitas.

Then again I sometimes call Peking Duck Chinese fajitas and Gryos Greek Fajitas so I don't really have a leg to stand on. But that is a food analogy, so it is different.

some bitch about "shrimp scampi" but that is being a bit pedantic since we don't get that crustacean in the US normally. The term "scampi" has evolved to mean the sauce and style and not the actual protein. Same with fajitas.

They've been fed "Only the Best" in the ensuing days, and when served, ought to be some of the finest and most delicious pork as is possible to put onto a plate.

And if you've never got to enjoy pulling some crispy pig-skin off of the piggie soon as it comes out of the coals, well, you've missed one of life's finer treats.

341 off, sock.

The only reel mower I currently own is a Clemson E16 Junior, possibly one of the finest push mowers ever made. It is both very light and very rigid. Rigid is important for a reel mower, because the clearance/contact between the reel and the bed knife must be set precisely, and then stay set. Machines with a flexible structure fail to do so.

My "lawn" at Stately Peon Manor is more of a lumpy pasture, and I use a rotary mower to keep it from growing too tall. Reel mowers are for fine lawns.

352 I posted a little of this on the garden thread. Y'all need a funny.


Blowing the leaves Using the leaf blower to remove leaves today, i got into a property dispute with a nest of yellow jackets.

There is was, jamming the eff out a high volume to some Dire Straits, Brothers in Arms, when i felt a sharp pain on the back of my left bicep. Thought it was a spider, so i reached aroind and pinched a little insect body and continued about my business.

Then i felt several more 'sharp pains', and spotted the flying menance. Where the hell did the jornets come from?


Quickly dropped the leaf blower, squealed like a 7th grade girl and ran inside, trying to out run them. Hornets, remember?

No. Yellow Jackets. Georgia Tech Asshoe. Latched on with oth hands and wouldn't let go, as grandpop would say.

Running inside, i still though 'Hornet', and implored Smash to 'choot em!' She saw that thwy were latched onto my clothing and had me stop doing laps around the kitchen island and began pinching the off my clothes with a dish rag.

Oh noes. Now they want some of Smash too!

Junior-ette quickly saw the human eating insects for the deadly threat to teenage girls and snatched up Moron-cat and hid in her bedroom.

Smash eventually killed off 12 of the little yellow and black terrorists while getting stung four times herself. I got about 12-15 stings altogether on my back. Hurts. Burns. Itches, but don't touch it dumbass, that makes it burn more.

Big dose of antihitimines and anti-itch benadrill and i feel a little better.

Smash keeps giggling and imitating my middle school girls shriek while whining 'choot em!'.

The embarassment is worse than the stings. You lot may as well enjoy my pain and discomfort while mocking me too.


Planning to wage total warfare on them with gas poured down their peehole nest entry control bunker tomorrow. Probably fill the hole with expanding foam after i light that ass up.


Pray for my dumb ass. The yellow jacket asshoes have got me skeert to venture into my front yard.

383 I was messing with, and cursing on, one of the yard machines today. Not the mower, but the snow blower. Two inches of snow last night, and it got up to 22 degrees F today, with a breeze.

Machine needed a new auger drive belt. No problemo! I have one, bought last Spring from the dealer. Install it, which was a chore, because you have to separate the auger assembly from the motor/drive assembly, and it takes 3 hands to get it all back together. Belt was real tight going in, too. But, hey! It's new.

Start it up. Auger starts turning without benefit of the clutch lever being depressed. On top of that, clouds of smoke issue from drive housing. Ooooh! But auger keeps turning, and smoke eventually dissipates.

I motor it down the ramp from the shop, and out into the snow. It's clearing snow OK. Can't shut the auger off, but that's not a deal-breaker. Get the driveway mostly cleared, and it runs out of gas.

Bought gas last night, so I fill it up from a can. Cannot start it with the recoil start, since the drag of the auger is slowing it down. Push it up to the shop, string out an extension cord, and use the 120 volt starter to fire it up again. Resume plowing, but something's not right. It's only throwing a piddly stream of snow. Walk around to the front. Only half the auger is turning, and the stopped half is plugged solid with snow.

Motor is up into the shop, make a U-turn so the Sun is shining on the auger area, and shut it down. Clean snow out of dead auger flights. Well! The 6 mm bolt that pins the auger to the shaft is missing. Either it rattled out, or got sheared off. They do act as shear pins, I think.

Find another 6 mm bolt, washers, and self-locking nut. Install same. By then, it was after 4, Sun getting low in the sky, and the basic plowing was done, and I was getting cold. Called it a day.

Monday, I will take the old auger belt to NAPA, and see if they can match it up. Pretty sure my new belt from the dealer, was a wrong one.

Anyway, cut down a bee tree, and took it to our wood yard. Was able to go back and capture most the hive bees. Set up a feeder station to try to keep this hive of honey bees alive. Apparently we have a hive of yellowjackets close by.
I'm feeding the assholes along with the reptiles I'm trying to save. Go figger.

I hate all species of bee and hornet and wasp, the "Unholy Trinity" of the insect world. Bees are the worst, but hornets and yellow jackets are evil too. Other wasps are less evil because they're less social. But all of them are bastards.

445 You keep gradually learning new things about stinging insects, until you die. If you are lucky, you don't die of stings.

I picked up an odd new piece of knowledge this year, kind of a wasp-rich one for me as I'd demolished an old house and exposed a lot of the blue and yellow clays we have in subsoil here that are attractive to several kinds of mud-daubers. Even with some mowing, excavating and grading, I'd been getting along with them all right. They were intent on their work, and not after me.
Then I brought in a crew to put a roof on the big building next door, and the materials came wrapped in a newish material. I'll bet you've seen it: a very thin porous plastic foam sheet, looks like fabric softener sheets. And for whatever reason, those foam sheets were crawling with aggressive hornets that were drawn to the smell (?) of the material, and were willing to fight for it.

I stayed lucky, but a nice kid on the crew got hit four times in rapid succession, then again on another day. About the time we started to discuss bringing in a pro, the damn bugs figured out where they would rather be, and scattered. The sheets came from about 50 miles away (if it had been China, I'd have been making some calls). If I were not more worried about elections and such, I'd muse that my county was being invaded by a new predator.

446 I've never been stung by a honeybee or a bumblebee that I didn't step on (twice in my life and I'm 29 twice)>

My brother keeps bees and swears he now believes the lore that stings cure arthritis--the stings he's had over the years have vastly improved his hand function, or so he says.

Yellow jackets are aggressive nasty vicious evil punks.

No horrible death is too much for them. Kill them in good faith, and celebrate when they're done. If I could put their bodies on pins around the perimeter of the property with tiny signs saying "I'd turn back if I were you", I would.

479 Hi folks. Lemme tell you a story that made me feel a little better.

I host a karaoke gig on the weekends, and some kids from our local liberal arts college have been making a regular stop at the bar on Saturday nights to sing, drink, and whatever. Tonight, we also had the entire women's softball team there. So, about 40 students in all.

At one point, a group of the college guys sang the song "Chicken Fried", by the Zac Brown Band...and at the end one guy yelled out "TRUMP TRAIN!" to cheers from the other students.

Then...the entire women's softball team (and nice looking young ladies they were) got up to sing "Courtesy Of The Red, White, And Blue" by Toby Keith, and they had the entire bar singing with them, and screaming "We'll put a boot in your ass" at the top of their lungs. Then, when the song ended, one of the students from Australia bellowed as loudly as he could, "I F*****G LOVE AMERICA!!!" as the other Aussies chanted "USA! USA!"

What's the point of this story? Not sure. It was just nice to see that not all college students are falling for the SJW bullcrap.

The mostly unreported story going on here is that with the mortality under better control, it's a small subset of symptoms that are the biggest problem for people trying to seriously address it (vs. those looking at it simply as a vehicle for political opportunity). If people really can get it multiple times, they're going to be rolling the dice on encephalitis each time.Mostly eliminating the serious side effects really would reduce it to just a flu status.

497 Multiple re-infection, AFAIK, close to a unicorn. And side effects so far, also AFAIK, no different than flu (or even "common colds", which can have extreme outcomes in some cases). Early panic-mongering efforts included one very poorly done "study" of athletes and long-term lung effects - main result was that those following the issue ended up learning a lot about the extensive (if statistically small) potentially serious side effects from flu.

In any case, a "vaccine" that doesn't prevent infection - or was developed with a protocol that literally doesn't even include that as a criterion - is not a "vaccine" in the sense people understand, or (mistakenly, for the most part) seek.

As for numbers, while death counts from a widespread disease are always fraught with complications, the CDC's radical change in guidance early in this debacle may well have seriously boosted numbers attributed to C19. Recall even the now pretty shambolic Birx, the day she announced the new guidelines, said they feared they would result in 25% padding of the stats.

Adjusted for population size, even the very dubious 200K+ official score as of today would put it between 1968 and 1957 flu events. Of course the radical mitigation needed to contain those epidemics wrecked the economy for decades, I think.

Today, I put a bit over $30 of Ethanol Free Fuel into my wee Mazda 5 car, leading up to the Tx Mo Meet. 20% more mileage, and at least 15% more power.

Next lane over, a FIFTY foot Cigarette type boat on a triple axle trailer, being towed by an F-350 on steroids.

The boat featured triple 300 HP Evinrudes.

Yeah. 900 gallons of Ethanol Free gas, too.

The boat on the trailer was going TO the Clear Lake TX Trump Parade.

And then the same weekend of the TX Mo Meet, to the Galveston Ship Channel Trump Boat Parade.

Thats cool. The car already gets almost 500 miles to a tank. It pulls around 36 mpg on a cruise. Its a manual 6 speed, so that probably helps. I'm curious how it will do with real gas. We were going to take my brother's car, but its a black 7 series BMW (don't be impressed, he got it dirt cheap), but he was thinking cruising through the southern states in a black 7 series with jersey plates probably isn't the smartest thing to do. The mazda will probably draw less attention. Although, the bmw would be waaaay more comfy on a cruise like that. His other concern is if that thing breaks down they're gonna ass fuck him with sand to get fixed out in bum fuck egypt. The mazda is still under warranty, has road side assistance, and only 38K on it, so it will be smooth sailing with that.

It's one of the hardest things to explain to those who ought to know better. Lies of omission, in the absence of other info, are impossible to spot.

You think you are watching the news. But in fact, you are only seeing what they want you to see. Case in point -- The Hunter Biden emails.

Over two days, the MSM gave the emails a total of under 10 minutes of coverage, combined. The social media sites actually blocked the info. And still are.

So it's not really gaslighting (ignore what you are actually seeing and hearing), or whitewashing (It's Russian misinformation!), but actual censorship.

514 Steve Bannon has a show daily on Newsmax. I found it on local cable, way, way down there somewhere, and I DVR it. It's live at noon eastern,.
His show is called "WarRoom Pandemic" and he is all over the Biden / China connection. One of his sidekicks used to be at Breitbart. He's also a great source of what is going on in China, interviews underground anti-CCP and the level of detail that Progda ignores is breathtaking.
He's doing his best to blow the lid off of the Biden China connection, and others.
The FBI has been sitting on this hard drive information for up to a year. They've done nothing.


Here, Revolver mag is interviewing him from earlier today about relevant Biden Crime Family information:

Revolver: What is the most incriminating thing on the hard drive? Rudy has suggested illegal things, and as Revolver reported the FBI person tasked with the hard drive is associated with the child pornography division. Could you give more insight into how bad it is we're talking about?

Mr. Bannon: Joe Biden is a liar, a fraud, and compromised by Chinese cash. In short, he is a national security crisis. The hard drive combines emails and text messages that show a massive involvement with companies controlled by the Chinese Communist Party. Also, there are 25,000 images that show a drug-addled, depraved lifestyle; one that decent hardworking Americans will not want near the White House.

Revolver: The FBI has been holding onto the hard drive for almost a year? Any sense of why? Was there any indication that they were seriously interested in criminal case, assuming that there is, in fact, illegal material on there? If not, why would the FBI simply hold onto information like that?

Mr. Bannon: The President must confront the director of the FBI on why the information housed on this hard drive was not moved on immediately. If the content of the hard drive had been released when received in November 2019, there would have been no impeachment of Trump, and Bernie Sanders would be the Democratic Party nominee. This confrontation should take place this weekend in the Oval Office. If Wray doesn't have a bulletproof reason he should be fired in the room.

Revolver: What are your best estimates on how many foreign entities may have obtained possession of the hard drive? Chinese intel?

Mr. Bannon: It's the actions represented on the hard drive that the American people must understand our enemies know about. The cash and equity given for access to Biden, the favors done for that cash, the drugs, the depravity. The CCP, Russian Intel, the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Intel Services; they know the Bidens are for sale.

Revolver: Is there any reason to expect that the contents of the hard drive will be revealed before the election? If yes, will people actually care enough for it to substantially effect the outcome?

Mr. Bannon: The Bidens are about to be hit with multiple stories from multiple media sources based off evidence beyond the hard drive. Fox and Peter Schweitzer have already started but bigger more mainstream companies are going to weigh in. We already have set in motion the various apparatuses that will release everything.

The bias of omission is, indeed, flat-out censorship. And one of Progda's strongest tools.

Much of Progda has moved from simply incompetent and bias, to dangerous mis-information that causes real harm.

And Progda has trained their viewers how to inoculate their viewers from truth that doesn't support the narrative.
"Oh, that's from Fox News. ... that's from Brietbart .... that's from InfoWars. You can't believe THAT!"

Believe the official narrative or get run over. It's getting obvious now.

To figure out if bias of omission is present, you have to be able to triangulate with at least two other news sources that you have found to be trustworthy over time.

Many don't have the time to seek out alternate sources, and that is why bias of omission works so well.

You can see it on Lefty news outlets, example Yahoo News. Most people only read the lead, not the entire article. Quite often, five or six paragraphs down, a statement printed makes the lead false. They do it all the time. One reason why reasonable people are so misinformed.

522 Sock Monkey, not every Normie shows up at Trump car/boat parades. Since the media blacks out any coverage of them, I'm just wondering how many actually know about them. One has to look on-line to find coverage and not everybody is a news junkie who will search out info on-line.

It's so easy to debunk the media lies of commission, like the first one right after Pres. Trump sat in the Oval Office. A report went out that he removed MLK's statue. But that was easily and quickly proven to be a lie.

But you hit right on my point: How do you prove a lie that was never aired/reported?

As for the censorship you claim they commit, gaslighting or censorship, it doesn't really matter what we call it. It's a lie of omission designed to make Trump supporters feel isolated and alone, to bring down any enthusiastic support for Trump.

TASS/Pravda straight up lied. But our media learned a lesson from them and just won't report such stories as they are 'local' (when it's very convenient for them to be so labeled).

The (anti-)social media censoring news is bad, but there is a remedy: Take away their Sec. 302 'we're just a platform' protection. Allow their asses to be sued into oblivion.

But the legacy media, and their highly incestuous personal relationships with Democrats of all levels, is the most detrimental and dangerous. I still can't fathom how George Snuffleupagus has a news show and can even be considered anything other than a political hack. I'm at the point where I want the media monopolies to be busted, broken up into tiny little Ma Medias. If they go broke, so be it. If the likes of Rachel Maddow or Chris Hayes have to bus tables to make ends meet, so much the better. Watching Little Bryan Stelter bus tables would allow me a hearty, evil laugh.

They won't have to show up thanks to vote fraud. That's the one thing that scares me the most this election. Just how massive will it be? They've been pulling out the stops on that, too, what with all the mail-in ballot crap that's been happening of late but not reported, of course.

I also tend to think the media pushing polls showing Joey Bidet up by a gazillion points is designed to set the table for a violent response to Trump winning. How could Trump win if Sundowner Joe was so far ahead in the polls? Must be vote fraud! (As I've said before, the Dems have more projection than multi-plex theaters.)

This is exactly what I expect. I now question whether they will wait for the election. Smokin Joe is about to burst into flames. They have few if any cards left to play.

538 Morning, Bruce. I hope the drive is an easy one. Too bad it won't end in Corsicana.

Not this time. We got to Gills Rock and had lunch at a restaurant there that overlooks Ellison Bay. Lots of fall color and blue skies.

540 That's on my bucket list.

Only been to Door County twice. 1st was 23 years ago for my brother's wedding, s-i-l from Egg Harbor. 2nd was this summer - a one day trip up to pick something up from her mom on our way up to the U.P.

Took an extra 3 hours to Egg Harbor then back down around Green Bay to head north again.

544 I'm glad you had the sun! The colors are so much more enjoyable. With yesterday's wind here I'm guessing there won't be a whole lot to see when you get to SE Wisconsin!

547 526 Above all, believe your eyes. If Smokin Joe's supporters can't bother to show up to support their canidate why will they show up to vote for him?

Posted by: Sock Monkey...anticipating my wanted poster for the thought crime I'm committing at October 18, 2020 04:09 AM (TIVr7)

They won't have to show up thanks to vote fraud. That's the one thing that scares me the most this election. Just how massive will it be? They've been pulling out the stops on that, too, what with all the mail-in ballot crap that's been happening of late but not reported, of course.


The asked, and the answered. I completely agree. The Trump support is off the charts, I've never seen anything like it before. But the corruption, financed obviously by Soros, Inc. , with help from Elite America, Bezos, Oprah, Babs, John Legend and his ilk, is a wildcard that our country has never faced before. There are many people who have no problem breaking the law, because, Trump.

BLM is working hard right now to muck up the voting, they have plenty of money, and are by their own admission, trained and celebrate Marxist beliefs.

Progda will help confuse anything, short of a Trump landslide. In a normal world, those massive Trump boat parades and car parades, combined with Biden turnouts of a few dozen, signify a landslide for sure.

It's been windy in Northern Wis for about 5 days. A lot of the trees were missing half of their leaves.
Yesterday it was overcast. But the leaves were still showy

549 Here it is. Please pass the word to BC, if you see him.


I've got a cat on the porch who has adopted us here at Casa New
Dawn, and I'll be getting pics and a story 'bout him to OM in the next
few weeks.



He's a nearly all-black shorthair, neutered. He needs a permanent
home, as we can't bring him in to mingle with the indoor cats.



He's got that Feline Lukemia thing, which means anytime we pet him or bring in his food bowl, it's major handwashing time.



But. And this is important. He's a cat that was BORN to snuggle on
your lap and up against your chest. It. Is. His. Drug. Of. Choice.



He's about two years old. Given the disease, he's got may two to four years life expectancy.



And I'd really like to find him a home, before winter.

Ha. She tries to be so quiet, but the antique dresser has creaky drawers, and the floor boards in her room have a few spots that creak when you walk over them. She usually just rearranges clothes... unless she decides to get dressed and start the day.

Thankfully this morning after about 30 min of activity, she used the bathroom and went back into her room without comment. The bedside lamp just now went 'click'

Reprieve for a bit.

568 Mornin', folk,

We went out to our favorite cafe/coffee shop last night. I was dreading a battle over the masks, but they were really cool about it. We were thinking about sitting out on the covered patio in front, the waitress -- her mask pulled down below her chin -- smiled and said, "You don't have to wear those things to come in."

So we did, and chatted with her as she took our order. She sounds like a Moron in training: She told us how she faced down an Walmart employee over the issue. I really should grab up some of my business cards and write the "ace.mu.nu" address and "Ace of Spades" on the back, and hand them out to sensible people.

A lot of the patrons, some of them in the "at-risk" age category, were maskless too. We enjoyed talking with a couple of them, just to see smiles and complete faces.

So a good evening. I anticipate I'll be okay at the grocery this a.m., and if I go back to the cafe for breakfast.

570 The worst thing about getting up and turning on the computer is to see Yahoo news..(I fixed that) Trump hates black women is one of their lead stories....Someone heard someone say that, and they put it on line. It will get worse and worse as election day gets here.

I'm noticing more customers linger for conversation. They are happy to be able to come in unmasked. Just want some normalcy.

Very few Karen's, except one that keeps coming back- always has a comment about not being masked The last time she asked me if i EVER wore a mask. What I'd like to say to her is if it bothers you so much, why do you keep coming here?

584 Exactly, Bruce. But she needs to keep informing me we have a mandate, and dont i know that?

I'm alone behind a counter, we have screens up, albeit very temporary. No one is in that store more than 15 minutes. We clean contact surfaces, including on the gas pumps regularly. We have hand sanitizer at both registers, and a station by barhrooms and the doors. For Goodness sake, I'm working with the great unwashed public and handling money! First rule of that has always been: wash your hands before you touch your face or eat, and cover your cough!
