This Merry Warrior Monday Open Thread is VERY OPEN – a place for everybody to post whatever they feel they would like to tell the White Hats, and the rest of the MAGA/KMAG/KAG world (with KMAG being a bit of both).

Yes, it’s Monday…again.

Wheatie’s Word of the Day:

Pettifogging

Pettifogging is the practice of meanly bickering and quibbling over insignificant matters. Also to carry on in a petty, dishonest or unethical manner, or to practice chicanery of any sort.

Used in a sentence:

Democrats often engage in pettifogging to distract from the fact that their policies are destructive and doomed to fail.

For the record, pettifogging is also known as the practice of law by shyster lawyers.

ENFORCE IT!

Just one of the many things the totalitarian statists gain through releasing this virus. Think of all the “state enemies” that can be rounded up and disappeared under the cover of “safety for the community”, to cite just one example.
But we will fight on, no matter what.
Which brings to mind a recent post I saw OT, which I thought was quite powerful.
QUOTE:
“This is no small thing, to restore a republic after it has fallen into corruption.
I have studied history for years and I cannot recall it ever happening. It may be that our task is impossible. Yet, if we do not try then how will we know it can’t be done? And if we do not try, it most certainly won’t be done. The Founders’ Republic, and the larger war for western civilization, will be lost.
But I tell you this: We will not go gently into that bloody collectivist good night. Indeed, we will make with our defiance such a sound as ALL history from that day forward will be forced to note, even if they despise us in the writing of it.
And when we are gone, the scattered, free survivors hiding in the ruins of our once-great republic will sing of our deeds in forbidden songs, tending the flickering flame of individual liberty until it bursts forth again, as it must, generations later.
We will live forever, like the Spartans at Thermopylae, in sacred memory.”
– written by Mike Vanderboegh
.
.
.
Some selected facts re: Spartans….
Inward-looking and self-sufficient, the Spartans were the most feared hoplites (infantrymen) in all Greece. They lived an austere life, despising any sort of luxury.
“Come back with your shield – or on it” (Plutarch, Mor.241) was the parting cry of mothers to their sons. Mothers whose sons died in battle openly rejoiced, mothers whose sons survived hung their heads in shame.
Asked why it was dishonorable to return without a shield and not without a helmet, the Spartan king, Demaratos (510 – 491) replied: “Because the latter they put on for their own protection, but the shield for the common good of all.” (Plutarch, Mor.220)
An old man wandering around the Olympic Games looking for a seat was jeered at by the crowd until he reached the seats of the Spartans, whereupon every Spartan younger than him, and some that were older, stood up and offered him their seat. The crowd applauded and the old man turned to them with a sigh, saying “All Greeks know what is right, but only the Spartans do it.”

FUCK AKISMET CENSORSHIP. SILICON VALLEY MUST DIE.

Good thoughts, FG&C. History doesn’t bode well for maintaining our democratic republic. The two pivotal points I see are Constitutional Courts & re-establishing Rule of Law and abolishing/dramatically changing our education system.
Accomplishing the first takes a 3-body govt willing to do so. Our votes are the key.
The second is to role model that guy who spoke at City Council, and went on to win the LtGov primary in NC. If we started attending our school board mtgs and becoming vocal about OUR educational priorities instead of griping about status quo. The Leftists are LOUD, demanding and relentless. We need that kind of action at our local schools.

ForGodandCountry

Yes. To all of that!

Just remember that Muslim mothers openly rejoiced when one of their children wore a suicide vest into a school of small children it into a wedding celebration.

No shame!
The most hard-core fighter pilot once had no tolerance for g. It is an unnatural thing, as is human flight. But tolerance for it can be built up, like calluses on a fighter’s knuckles or a guitar player’s fingers. These things can also be lost, too, just as a famed guitarist who did not play at all for a year could not subsequently play a full concert for the pain at the ends of his fingers. Skills are also lost through none-use. This is why “keeping current” is such a BIG deal for pilots, doctors, and many other professions.

Alison

I thought you would appreciate this! Courageous citizen knowing what was in store and going for the gusto. I figured it is an acquired acclimation like mountain activities, deep sea diving, etc. Anything where our human physiology needs time or repetition to adapt.

Deplorable Patriot

ANY profession, art or craft that requires manual dexterity has to be kept current. Even handwriting. It has to be practiced. Musicians who leave off for months have to get back into shape and the body part can be as out of the blue as a lip. When I went back to flute, that was a problem.
I would imagine the same is true for craftsmen and those in the trades, like bricklaying and plastering. There’s a lot of manual dexterity to it.

Alison

You are so right, DPat. I often fume when I hear someone say “You are so talented!” when what they SHOULD be saying is “You are well-practiced.”

Deplorable Patriot

And talented. Some people can practice all they want and not get any better at what they are trying to accomplish.

Alison

Amen 😄

Cuppa Covfefe

Yep. We have a saying, “When you miss a day of practice, you notice it. When you miss two days, your colleagues notice it. When you miss three days, the audience notices it.”
Cellists don’t have it as bad as violinists, with that dastardly-thin e-string, but when the calluses are gone, if you play more than a half hour, you’ll end up with “handburger”… Even pianists have some calluses, though not as thick as we “stringies”…
(and in a nod to violists everywhere): Q: What do violists’ fingers and lightning have in common?
A: They never strike the same place twice 🙂
Respect to those fighter and acrobatic pilots! There’s a great IMAX/3D film that plays at the Sinsheim/Speyer museums over here, called “The Magic of Flight”. It’s great. Among other things, it shows a backseat view of a Blue Angel’s flight. Amazing…

Alison

We saw a similar (same?) same film in a small 360 degree theater at the Air Force Academy last summer. I had to close my eyes for some of it 🤓

Closest I got was repelling down the staircase rails in Grad House West until the janitor threw us out of the building. 🙃
It was great because we could take the elevator to the top floor and then repell down.

Alison

LOL you go, Gail 🤣🤓😳

Gail Combs

The college really didn’t like us using the building for climbing practice. Little did they know there were climbing registers at the top of the climbs and ‘known routes’

ForGodandCountry

The falls he took acquiring that skill makes me wince!

cthulhu

It’s such a cool maneuver, but I was seriously wondering how someone practiced for doing that without ending up in a hospital. It’s kind of locked to that one spiral staircase and nowhere else.

Alison

No room for error on that maneuver. I think the key is just go…fast…

cthulhu

If you look at it from a coaching perspective, the load-on and dismount are tricky, beautiful, and unique. Sliding down a handrail sideways on skis is something you could practice anywhere (including a variety of safer places).

Cuppa Covfefe

Gosh…. all that graphic humour…
[No Aggie Joakes! Heh …]
Three engineers — one from Caltech, one from MIT, and one from Texas A&M — were having a friendly discussion in a bar when the subject turned to great inventions.
The MIT grad opined that the greatest invention of all time was fire. “Fire transformed the world! It gave us light at night, it kept us warm in the cold, and it let us cook food, and smelt metals, and power engines … Yes, fire has to be the greatest invention in history.”
“I respectfully disagree,” the Caltech man said. “The greatest invention in history is the one that made history itself possible: writing. Writing let us record our very thoughts and transmit them through space and time, down the generations. It made civilization possible. Hard-won knowledge need never be lost — in a sense, writing enabled us to transcend death itself!”
“No …” the Aggie said thoughtfully, “I think the greatest invention of all time would have to be the Thermos.”
“The Thermos?!” the others exclaimed.
“Well, sure!” said the Aggie. “Look — it keeps hot things hot and it keeps cold things cold. … How does it know?!

patfrederick

They are weaponizing it everywhere, and it will carry through to November.
I consider it my duty to turn the blade back upon them.

patfrederick

hubby’s boss held an impromptu meeting last Friday with the office staff–one of the project managers has parents who are considering taking a cruise–they’re like 20 cents now…
if that happens, when they get back, boss is thinking of making (not asking) the project manager self quarantine at home. he risks not only the office personnel, but job site personnel–and they frequently do work at hospitals, etc…

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Yeah, I agree. People are jumping on cheap cruises, but they’re risky as hell for old people, and that includes others AFTER people come back and spread it. This stuff is NASTY in nursing homes and senior communities. Have some responsibility!!!

patfrederick

agreed. the project manager did give everyone a heads up that this was what his parents were thinking about, so kudos to him for that…

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Yup. We’re already making decisions that “respect our elders”. This is very simple. Normally, the flu is “worse for seniors”, but most of them get the shot, and overall it’s not a killer. This is roughly 10 times as bad as bad flu for seniors, and there’s no shot. Keeping them safe is what we have to do.

patfrederick

years ago, our MD recommended we both get the pneumonia vaccine –seniors are prone to it as they get older he said. it was the one shot I got.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Probably a good move. I’ve heard only good things about that one, even from haters of the flu vaccine.

Check out the MODIS Great Lakes satellite image from two days ago (Saturday). Imagery that is like a work of art, especially Lake Erie where the rain runoff created swirling patterns, and the ice patterns along the upper Great Lakes.
The Mississippi River, some of it chocked by ice, stands out in the lower left of the image. In the lower right is the Appalachian Mountains in Pennsylvania. The ice free Finger Lakes in New York also stand out.
Also of note is the lake effect snows along the south shores of Lakes Erie and Ontario, and some interesting ‘snow flake’ patterns on the mountain tops in that area.
The image is a large file. It starts out at the northwest part of Ontario. Scroll down and to the right to find the areas of interest.comment image

Just to let everyone know, I’m going to be loopy tomorrow.
For a variety of weird reasons, I have to do fasting blood tests. I’m phobic about being punctured.
Mind you, this has nothing to do with pain — I’ve had four dental crowns done without anaesthesia because the anaesthetic would be injected. And “explanations” where the “needle is just wafer thin” make me want to vomit like Mr. Creosote — it wouldn’t be a phobia if it were susceptible to logical reasoning.
The last time I did this, I finally had my physician (who blithely orders these tests because they cost him nothing) prescribe me some generic Xanax. I used two (one for the real phobia, and one because I was afraid the first one wasn’t doing anything) and got through the experience ok — but got looped-out and it took over 12 hours to recover.
This time, I’m going to try it with one. I’m going to try and taxi over there and walk home — it’s only about two miles.
I have high hopes that it won’t be a complete freakout, but it’s likely to be extended loopy.

patfrederick

please be careful and check in if you can when you’re safely home!
best of luck!!

I’ve been back for an hour. Did ok with one xanax — didn’t stop breathing throughout.

Over the weekend I noticed the first Daffodils growing in my yard. As I do every year, I got out this poem by Wordsworth to celebrate the occasion. 🙂
==
I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud
BY WILLIAM WORDSWORTH
I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o’er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.
Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the milky way,
They stretched in never-ending line
Along the margin of a bay:
Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.
The waves beside them danced; but they
Out-did the sparkling waves in glee:
A poet could not but be gay,
In such a jocund company:
I gazed—and gazed—but little thought
What wealth the show to me had brought:
For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.

itswoot

“The earth laughs in flowers”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
Also, reminds me of the scene in “Dr. Zhivago” where the wind makes the daffodils dance around.

Am I supposed to understand that this is because the Diocese of Rome has canceled all public Masses until April 3 in response to the coronavirus outbreak?
Why this message now from John Stone? It looks like ungrounded fear mongering. Never Trump stuff being used to correspond with today’s market crash. This message John Stone has sent was sent in 18 Sep 1846. Not seeing the correlation to what happened to what is happening today unless John Stone is trying to slash the tires on the Trump economy.

Mindboggling dumbness exhibited by Dem this morning.
How can these people function is a real world?????
Lay of the Land: This morning, the Dow futures are down 1255 points. Across the globe, Shanghai and DAX were down about 6% today. Japan report on 1st quarter came in and showed contraction of 7.1% for their economy. Report out of China showed exports down 17%.
Failure of Russia and OPEC to come to terms has OIL at 32USD/barrel this morning, which is down 9USD. Goldman Sachs came out with a NOTE overnight saying we could see oil in the 20-30USD range for a period of time due to decreased demand from Coronavirus.
And the Dems are thrilled. Economy is crashing. Narrative is “we told you Trump was an idiot”.
What?
Trump was the one to warn us about the danger of China. Trump was right.
And
if the Dems think this market slide is terrific because of drop in oil price, what will they do when ANY of their candidates wins and fossil fuel is outlawed? Where will the market be when there is NO OIL?
These people are stupid, and cheering for their own destruction.

patfrederick

I don’t understand the market and the globe as well as you do, but I recognize panic when i see it. good thing POTUS recognizes opportunity when he sees it.

“He’s miserable but trying to be optimistic as best he can,” Engelmayer said. “He has had a lot of time to think about his life and be humbled, but he thinks it’s going to be a long, uphill battle from here.”

Border patrol confiscates counterfeit toothbrush heads? didn’t even know that was a thing…
FTA
Border Patrol agents in Philadelphia seized a shipment of counterfeit toothbrushes.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials said the more than 1,400 fake Oral-B toothbrush heads would’ve gone for more than $12,000 at the suggested retail price.
This was CBP’s second Oral-B toothbrush head seizure in five months.
In November, Philadelphia officers seized 20,400 counterfeit Oral-B toothbrushes shipped from China.
Agents said the latest seizure came from Turkey. CBP officers initially examined the express delivery shipment on Feb. 14 and discovered 1,440 Oral-B toothbrush heads that consisted of 260 four-packs and 200 two-packs. Officers detained the shipment as suspected counterfeit consumer goods due to poor packaging and questionable quality.
CBP officers then worked with CBP’s Consumer Products and Mass
CBP officials noted counterfeit toothbrush heads pose a serious health threat to consumers, as do all counterfeit health care products. Counterfeit brush heads are manufactured in unsanitary facilities with substandard materials that may sicken users or cause bleeding to a user’s gums or mouth, and structural defects may cause the brush head to detach, and potentially choke users.

I’ve always liked a particular aspect of this verse.
It doesn’t say “In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall” tell you how to proceed, or whisper cryptic messages in your ear, or have you read passages that can easily be interpreted to mean multiple things.
The verse says “He shall direct your paths.” God cuts out the flawed middleman in this process, either me or you, and goes straight to the resultant action by Him . . . directing our paths.

studying this worm might help with our plastics problems.
FTA
It turns out mother nature may have a solution for our massive plastic waste problem. The answer? Galleria mellonella, more commonly known as the ‘great wax moth’ or the ‘honeycomb moth.’ What makes these little guys so special? G. mellonella larvae enjoy chowing down on polyethylene, the most common type of plastic which also happens to be incredibly difficult to breakdown.
In 2017, researchers accidentally discovered that wax worms had eaten holes through plastic bags in which they were being stored. Puzzled, Paolo Bombelli and Christopher Howe placed the critters on polyethylene film in a lab and observed them getting to work on the plastic. The results showed that 100 worms were able to ingest 92 milligrams of the material over a 12-hour period. While it’s not a massive amount, it’s still more than microbes are able to breakdown. What’s more, the caterpillars—sometimes called ‘plastivores’—actually digest the plastic allowing them to turn the material into energy.
https://www.popularmechanics.com/science/animals/a31229764/caterpillar-eats-plastic/

Gail Combs

GOOD GRIEF!
Polyethylene, polypropylene and polystyrene can EASILY be recycled or can burned to make ENERGY.
OH, and guess where you can find styrene??? IN TREES!
https://bioplasticsnews.com/2018/08/08/future-of-polystyrene/
And this is incorrect: AKA PURE BULL SCHIFF!
“…. PS [polystyrene] is hard to recycle, and there are no investments to do so because there are no incentives…..”
THE FACTS!
A POST -Consumer recycling plant for polystyrene was to be opened north of Boston in the late 1980s. It was a combined project of McDonald’s, Sweetheart Plastics & Polysar. The factory was specially designed to use handicapped workers.
The design (by my favorite boss) was complete, the land purchased, the TV ads announcing the project made and the ground breaking ceremony for the factory about to happen.
So WHY no factory???
S. Robert Blair, an upstart, had stomped on the toes of Shell Oil and British Petroleum, both companies ‘owned’ by the Dutch and British Royals, the Rothschilds and the Rockefellers. In REVENGE these Oligarchs used their puppet WWF and at first a school teacher from New Hampshire and then some teenager to TAKE DOWN THE ENTIRE INDUSTRY! The WEEK before the recycling ads were to air on TV, an anti-polystrene campaign was ‘started’ by a teenager and SWEPT the ENTIRE COUNTRY! She was featured in ALL the media… And the crap shes spouted was LIES!
Sound like the prototype for Greta the Green Hearted??
McDonald quickly scrambled to switch to UNRECYCLABLE coated paper, Polysar and Sweet Heart had to close factories and hundreds lost their jobs. But the Oligarchs got their revenge and we are STILL swamped with their lies about plastic.

patfrederick

you know, in your “spare time” (sarc) you should be the Sect of Recycling!

Gail Combs

Seriously,
If you take the long chains of polyethylene and polypropylene and keep chopping them up you end up with wax. (That is why the worm would eat them)
The general formula for paraffin wax involves n carbon atoms and 2n plus 2 hydrogen atoms, where n is at least 16. For example, one of the hydrocarbons in the wax might have the formula C31H64. This gives you a typical melting point between about 46 and 68 °C (115 and 154 °F),
When (n) the number of repeats gets really large you get plastics which are harder and have higher melting points.
Polyethylene and Polypropylene are the two most widely produced commodity plastics.
Polyethylene Chemical formula (repeating building block)
(C2H4)n
Polypropylene
Formula:
(C3H6)n
Polystyrene’s chemical formula is
(C8H8)n
It is different than polyethylene and polypropylene because it has a benzene ring stuck on the monomer aka repeating building block.
>>>>>>
Notice ALL these compounds are nothing but carbon and hydrogen.
So why are they not burned???
Well the plant I was at would strip off the material with low [n] via distillation. Originally it was burned to generate electricity for the plant. THEN CAME THE EPA and MARXIST DUPES and we had to PAY to have the ‘CHEMICAL WASTE’ removed by Clean Harbors. Where did it go? One state over where it was burned to produce electricity.
Heck I talked to one guy who had a small vineyard and produced some very nice wine. Originally the lees, the skins and seeds leftover from pressing the grapes, was composted and returned to the soil. BUT the EPA/state CLASSIFIED the lees as CHEMICAL WASTE and he had to hire Clean Harbors to remove those ‘DANGEROUS’ grape seeds and skins.
The local school had to pay big $$$ to Clean Harbors to remove the old black top aka CHEMICAL WASTE from the school parking lot. My journalist brother-in-law followed the truck and found they just dumped the stuff at the local dump. He wrote an article and an uproar ensued.

Deplorable Patriot

You know what, this is all too reminiscent of EPA/FDA meddling around here in a deal the local brewers had with the dairy farmers. IIRC, this was a nation wide practice, but what would happen was the brewers would pack their spent grain and give it to the dairy farmers for the cows. The cows LOVED the spent grains and the milk production was improved.
Well, along comes the Obama EPA/FDA meddlers and they put a stop to the practice over *possible* cross species contamination which had NEVER happened. I don’t know if that decision was reversed, but it should have been. It took care of a number of issues including keeping those grains out of the land fill.

Gail Combs

“…the brewers spent grain….”
You know where that now goes? TO PURINA and the other feed companies where it is made into pelleted grain and sells for $20 to $50 a 100lbs.
It is listed as ‘distillers grain’

Deplorable Patriot

Figures. Nestle strikes again.

study done here in USA iirc.

Need moar studies and investigations for the pure joy of exploring God’s world, not for advancing voo-doo!

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Gail, this is a very big deal, because it ties in with “disappeared research” I know about back then.
A fellow scientist I knew in a non-science hobby context worked in a different branch of shallow state which I had almost worked for. He never talked shop, until one day when he wanted my opinion. He had been handed a new project involving recycling polymers. I was a much more basic scientist than he was, so he was looking for my thoughts. He was an extremely honest and ethical guy, and I had zero competing interests, so I gave him EVERY thought I had on the topic. I was concerned about certain negatives, which I explained at a fundamental level.
A few weeks later, he thanked me. I asked if he had gotten it to work. He said YES – and massively more successful than what they had hoped for. The method was elegant and highly general. I was shocked, but it made perfect sense. It not only solved the problems I had noted – it solved all the remaining problems. I had never dreamed of this solution.
Somehow, the whole thing got pulled away from him. He was taken out of the loop. About 25 years later, I understood.
FAKE SCIENCE. Fake science deep-sixed his work from above.

FTA:
More than 18,000 Americans have died from this season’s generic flu so far, according to the latest data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In 2018, the CDC estimated, there were 80,000 flu deaths. That’s against 19 coronavirus deaths so far, from about 470 cases.
Worldwide, there have been about 3,400 coronavirus deaths, out of about 100,000 identified cases. Flu, by comparison, grimly reaps about 291,000 to 646,000 annually.
China is the origin of the virus and still accounts for over 80 percent of cases and deaths. But its cases peaked and began ­declining more than a month ago, according to data presented by the Canadian epidemiologist who spearheaded the World Health Organization’s coronavirus mission to China. Fewer than 200 new cases are reported daily, down from a peak of 4,000.

para59r

Yep. Concerning China, if you care to believe their numbers, which matter not to me either way, they will be, with the exception of their critical cases, Wuhan virus free in about two weeks. How convenient for them as they resume their place in the worlds economy while our economy goes into to a nose dive.

para59r

manufactured *nose dive.

Cuppa Covfefe

Yep, and their markets have been going up, thanks to them changing their rulez…
Satan Soros and his ilk are laughing all the way to the bank. Remember, at Davos he said that the US markets have been too high for too long… Must’ve been hurting his practice of shorting…

And why hasn’t he been convivted of war (and other) crimes???

Cuppa Covfefe

Would an entire nation plot to drive down the market just so it could “buy the dip”?

para59r

Of course not, but this is being driven by never trumpers spreading fear and short sellers who are already stuck in large cash positions. Once they make their money on the short sell they come back and do it again and again.

They have been doing it since 1929 with the help of the FED.

Okay, fever broke at about four this morning, about 24 hours ahead of schedule. Still feel like crap, but, hey, the worst is over. Will be catching up a bit, but in the meantime….
JACKPOT! We have our first Coronavirus case here, and of course, the patient’s father and sister broke self-quarantine to go to a father daughter dance (and I guessed the school before I heard which one it was. I was right). They left upon getting the call that the test was positive, but still….
And, yes, given all details, we’re in close enough proximity, I expect it will effect life around here.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Good to hear from you, and the good news of your recovery.
Do you have a definitive diagnosis on what you had? Influenza, or the “weak strain” corona?

Deplorable Patriot

Definitive? No. But the symptoms matched the flu bug that’s going around town. I haven’t left the house since Wednesday, and probably won’t for a couple more. This particular bug does a number on the stomach to the point that I was down to cherry juice popsicles we had left from when the kids were here last. I highly recommend having some on hand.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

WOW. That’s nasty. I don’t need that action.

Deplorable Patriot

No one does.

Deplorable Patriot

The thing is, now I need to restock a whole lot of stuff, and with a case of the actual Coronavirus less than five miles away with definite networking vectors in my usual paths, I’m not sure which way to go when I do venture out.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Going very early or very late when crowds are thinnest is recommended by one of my best prepping sources, and not surprisingly, this is exactly what CDC is now recommending to oldsters who need to venture out.

patfrederick

which is counter to their safety in more populated areas—less crowds= easier targets for thieves. catch 22…

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Yup. Yup. Sad unintended consequence of living in blue zones.

Deplorable Patriot

Fortunately, the family involved lives in Ladue, which is a wealthy suburb where property is more like estates. The population density is lower than in other parts of town, so cross your fingers the distances might help hamper the spread.

para59r

Yep, morning after they’ve had their best cleaning. I’m pretty sure Gail has that in the Daughn’s notes somewhere.

Aubergine

Is there a grocery or other store near you that does curb-side pickup for orders? That would limit your exposure. Or you could have stuff delivered.

The closest grocery store is my best bet actually. When I can I’ll run down there.

Not possible.

Now that I think about it, as the couch commando woke up with a fever yesterday, but today no…I suspect this is a variation of influenza B. He had it a couple years ago, and may well have some natural immunity in place.

Gail Combs

D Pat.
The best time to hit a Walmart will be very early in the morning. The store will have been cleaned, droplets will have floated to the ground, shelves will hopefully have been stocked and the low-life will be home sleeping off their beer & drugs.
“adults’ strongest sleep drive generally occurs between 2:00-4:00 am….
…for teens the strongest circadian “dips” tend to occur between 3:00-7:00 am and 2:00-5:00 pm, but the morning dip (3:00-7:00 am) can be even longer if teens haven’t had enough sleep….”

https://www.sleepfoundation.org/articles/sleep-drive-and-your-body-clock
So shopping between 3:00 AM and 4:00 AM should be the safest.

Thank you. Yogurt this morning stayed down fine. Rice….one brother and I don’t tolerate it well.

Bananas, applesauce, and toast. The BRAT diet, minus the rice for you. But it was always recommended for my kids coming back from an illness as the easiest on the tummy.
