I have come to appreciate veggie platters, fruits, and diced meats in smaller quantities with other fillers.

+1

I just made a very tasty chicken salad with plain fat-free Greek yogurt instead of mayonnaise. I put in celery, shallots and roasted red peppers then seasoned it with Pico Fruta from Penzey's Spices. I added some salt, but I don't have to worry about that for myself, yet. In WW terms, it was 0 points, so I can eat as much as I like.

I’m building a truck camper and today I tried my hand at building a custom shower pan using fiberglass. It’s not pretty but I’m pretty sure it won’t leak. The kids can throw a rubber mat in there and they probably won’t notice the washboard (otherwise described as “like I-69 north of Indianapolis”.)
My GPS just told me to turn left, then turn left, then turn left, then turn left.
So if I go too far left do I end up right?

And we got a campsite at Gulf Shores for next March. I sure hope that the border will be open!

Just got back from taking the camper for a little 1263 mile drag this weekend.  Friday night at Hamilton Branch State Park in SC, Saturday morning we zipped an hour south into Waynesboro GA to pick up Sestra then back to the campground to meet Hemi and begin adventuring.  Saturday afternoon, we rolled out and made our way north on 77 to some random Cracker Barrel where we tried to sleep.  Then got up at zero dark and finished the trip home where we've been introducing the pup to all sorts of new things...  It's been fun in a relearning about tiny puppies kind of way. 

I started teaching her how to drive right away.

Aura and I got our first vaccine shots. We are both the type that would usually pass on it. We are just hoping this helps get our lives back to a little normalcy.

Wife got her 2nd Pfister this week. They had suggested we get it laminated in case "covid passports" actually become a thing. Did it and the sticker they use for PII (name, DOB, etc.) was a thermal printer label.  Pretty much blackened all that out during the lamination process.

How is a Vaccine passport any different than me having a little booklet that shows that I've had my polio,
typhoid, hepatitis A and/or cholera vaccination before I visit certain countries?

The only "problem" I see with a Covid passport stamp is that there is still uncertainty regarding the various strains and the longevity of the vaccination.

Also, the US just needs to get off the shitter and make (free) Federal IDs for everyone.   <- no politics, sorry.

I fully expect to see proof of vaccination required for international travel.  Countries will not want sick travelers adding to their problems with already overburdened domestic health care systems.

I fully expect to see proof of vaccination required for international travel.  Countries will not want sick travelers adding to their problems with already overburdened domestic health care systems.

Which has long been a requirement/recommendation for travel to certain countries, but not to attend domestic events. And yes, I know states put in their own entry/exit rules with COVID. We almost went there with measles (remember?) which is far more infectious and transmissible with an R=18, I believe, with NO cure. But it became a non-issue, thankfully.

Here's the deal. I have never had to 'show' that I had certain vaccinations; nobody has asked previous to this. I've had to answer questions on forms for a new doctor, but I don't have to show any proof that I've been vaccinated for polio, for example. Healthcare professionals ask me if I've had my flu shot, I say 'Yes', and I don't have to show anything. If someone asks me if I've been vaccinated for COVID, I'll tell them the truth, i.e. 'No', 'I've had my first shot', 'I've had my second shot', and 'I'm two weeks out from my second shot'.

So my example still stands: No one asks for my ID when I vote, so again, I expect to be believed if I tell someone I've been vaccinated.

Can we stop with the covid shots?  Everyone doesn't need to know your medical stuff-who cares?  How about something interesting, like your bank account numbers, credit card numbers, etc.

Trust me Papa, I have enough of an education to understand how it works.   But I live in a country where many people believe the vaccine is more dangerous than the disease.  Spoke with a close relative yesterday who believes that Fauci lies, masks interfere with your ability to breath, and that you can take a vitamin cocktail that is safer and more effective at preventing the virus than the vaccines that are currently available. 

I recognize the medical community wants to eliminate this disease. My concerns are more immediately focused.  I won’t be hopping into a van - or on a cruise ship, bus, etc. - with strangers anytime soon.  I am looking forward to riding in WV soon. 

Heard from an acquaintance in Ireland that EU/EMA may be releasing updated guidance for international travel sometime this month.  We’re hoping to visit in the future. (Believe CDC also just released something.). As my wife pointed out yesterday, we already have an immunization card that is required for travel to some countries.   I have no problem adding vaccination record to that. 

Have you heard anything about new EMA travel guidance?

Helped my sister move furniture, and got some more block for a future project.
She and I then took a history walk to a nearby abandoned church grave yard. The newest date on a headstone was 1889, the oldest 1822.
It was amazing to me that they were mostly readable.
More amazing is neighborhood volunteers were trying to keep it maintained. Kudos to them all.

Wasn't England locked down? How'd that work out? (Seriously, I'm not trying to be a smartass) The Brits have invaded the U.S. with their highly contagious B.1.1.7 strain (appeared first in England) which is the dominant force here now.  How does that happen, if they're locked down, and almost everyone here and there are socially distancing and masked up?  I'm  not seeing the curve being flattened, despite what "the science" says. I may not be the brightest bulb in the lot, but an awful lot doesn't make sense.

people are pretty much the same everywhere. If a new strain developed in one group of people it will most likely develop in others. the name is just where it was first discovered.

Don't worry about the card, it's my wife's account.

Yes, the UK has locked down 3 times since this started. Our government showed breath-taking incompetence and locked down late, so causing thousands of extra deaths. The new strain arose in Kent, England-looks like it mutated in someone who was already ill with something else. But the Brazilian and South African variants seem nastier. We are quite good at detecting new variants here.

Has it worked (lockdown, masks,, distancing)? Yes. It bought time until the vaccine roll out. It reduced rates of infection massively. Did everyone obey? Of course not. We have anti-vaxxers and flat earthers too.

It most definitely flattened in the US till they started opening up everything too soon and now we are getting a spike. Our local colleges are filled with cases,from spring break and march madness parties where nobody was masked.. And having the Texas Rangers stadium full to capacity with the majority not masking will surely lead to one too.
It isn't like people were following mask rules,because many were not.

Dusted. We're having people over for one of the very few times after Covid hit (like a dog kennel, we've all had our shots).  It's amazing how you can dust a room, and only a year later you have to dust it again.   ;)

Just got done buzzing my head...and my chin...and some of my upper back   :-\  I used to be so into my hair.  Then it turned white.  I'm getting closer and closer to just going full Fudd.

Just got home from a week in Florida for Spring Break.  Went to some massive, unmasked raves, did some blow with my wife and some hookers.


Really we just hung out at a beach and enjoyed sun and lots of drinks.

So you're the reason for the infection boom in Michigan.... But wasn't it really nice to live like real people for at least a week? ;)

We did that too! Youngest and her clan came over and cooked tacos for everyone for Wife's 62nd trip around the sun. Lots of fun. Everyone but me had had both shots. I still have about a week before the 2nd.

LOL.  It was, but we were masked in every place we visited.  Still, as a teacher wearing one every day all day here it was nice to be on the beach spaced out without a mask on all day.

My Honda Civic wouldn't start.  I put the battery on a charger for 4 hours and nothing.  So I bought a new battery and installed it this afternoon.  The car then asked for a magic code to activate the radio, as it regarded the power blink to be a sign of theft.  I just hit "next" and guess what, the radio works.   ;D  So did everything else, except trip memory, without having used any means of applying continuous power to the system while performing the operation.

Weird car, but it's willing and accommodating.

Back from our "Epic Road Trip of 2021" and back to work. Still stinks. I feel like an ingrate because I have what's most likely the best job in the world, and I still don't want to do it anymore.

On a more positive note Arizona is an awesome place to spend a few days, and we picked up some stunningly good Cab Franc at Maryhill Winery on the way home.

Spent my day at my desk, work can sux, but I was productive.
I rewrote 4 training books. Well not really rewrote but updated to match the new fleet.  Some changes were major some minor. Having a fleet of only two manufactures does have it's advantages for the training department. Challenge is when one goes away and a new vendor takes it's place, lot of deleets and sourcing new material.
  Kind of hurts letting go of a fleet that has been around for almost 20 years go. I remember seeing them arrive, as a mechanic and now they are gone. We had a lot of issues with that fleet but in the end we made then reliable. The guys on the line are complaining about the complexity and "crappy design" of the new fleet. Darn kids they don't know how good they have it, says the old guy.  Ya maybe it was the same. Me I just let them know it is their challenge to make it as trusted as the last fleet was, the old guys did before you. Man up buttercup says the old guy.
Ok I am the one who is there any day any hour, they all have my #, passing on what I can. Ya maybe today was a bt slow, but it'll pay off on the long run.  ;)

Turned a MASSIVE cottonwood tree on the farm into (poor) firewood and didn't die.  Probably the biggest tree I've felled.  The bottom was rotten and we were afraid it would come down in a storm:

Bladed the driveway. If the forecast is correct it should be nice and smooth when the snow melts.
the above are merely the ramblings of a hamfisted fuckwit who has broken too many helmets.

Found that no one I asked had the real answer about a 100# propane cylinder. No, it's not the weight when full. No it's not the weight of the tank (empty). It's the weight of the liquid priopan. The tank weight brought the total up closed to 300# and became a challenge for me to slide into the folded down back seat of the RS3 once it was filled. Had to dead-life one side, single-handed while the guy who did the filling held (and pushed) the other side as I cleared the paint and upholstery.

It sat there in the car for a few days until my brother came over to help me mode it to storage.

I think the long-term plan is to find a place that delivers propane to existing tanks.

I had a mower marathon ,amazing grass can grow so much in 4 days and cool temps. Three mowings in 12 days, I dread warmer weather with rain coming as I'll probably need a machete after 4 days at this growth rate.
