Re: Food

The wife has been in Maryland visiting her girlfriend so I've had the kitchen to myself. A lack of fish dishes so far but I did a bulgogi style ground beef that has seen me through two dinners and two breakfasts, one fried rice style and the other with barely cooked backyard eggs. I used fressh grat...

Re: How's the weather? v. 1.1

So, on lighter news, we are predicted to get between 7 and 11" of snow tonight. So far it's just rain and fingers crossed it remains that way as I am behind the curve this year getting the studded tire swapped on the vehicles.

Re: Random covid-19 observations

So what I'm seeing is, if you don't know that you have been infected, pretend like you haven't and take personal precautions. Ergo, I'm wearing a mask until such time that I become infected and am no longer contagious. I'm also working from home (because I have that option) and minimizing my trips o...

For the trifecta and ban hammer: Covid sucks. Covid will kill a fair number of people, perhaps people I care for dearly (both of my parents are in their 80s). Even so, I feel the long term effects of this "lockdown" will hurt us as a populace more. This should be behind the veil but I strong enough ...

And in about 2 to 4 weeks it will pick up again. Waves big and small. As people get sick of cowering/cabin fever, head out and promptly get infected.
