    Was it a dark and stormy night too? I don't know where you're at, but around here things are relatively normal. We had a great shopping trip yesterday, we laid in about 3 weeks of supplies. Some stuff was gone, but not muck. Liquor agent (independent) heard a rumor about liquor stores might have to close, so he gave me a significant break on a case of bourbon. Worked the gun store, which was a madhouse, and did a booming business. We sold several dozen cases of 9mm and 556, selling out. (I don't care, I have a bunch.) Restaurants and bars are now closed, so we're cooking and getting in a lot of exercise. Two 45 minute walks a day, at least. It's all good.

Had to stand there and continuously stir until the peppermint sticks were fully melted. He would bottle this into an old bottle with a cork stopper in the top. Taste? Well to a kid it burned like hell going down and tasted terrible. I can't begin to recall how I buried my face in a pillow to muffle sounds of cough to avoid having to be dosed. A few times I almost asphyxiated myself to keep that cough on the downlow. Nowadays, a nice 3 fingers of Maker's Mark or a single malt scotch gets the job done.

    Why they would choose the alcoholic stores specifically to close makes little practical nor medical sense.

    The Declaration of Independence states that the sole purpose of government is to secure the inalienable rights of life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. And, if it fails, the people are justified in getting rid of government, not the rights. - Judge Jeanine Pirro

    The first lesson in economics is scarcity: there is never enough of anything to satisfy all those who want it. The first lesson in politics is to forget the first lesson in economics. - Thomas Sowell

    S' funny - MY doc says a lot of medications don't play nice with alcohol. If you're on those meds, you have to make a choice.
    Almost 54 years since my last drink, but still . . .


    Event hough alcohol might be in short supply, I'll bet that about December of 2020, the birth rate will begin to BOOM , thus bringing a brand new generation of consumers into being. "Quarantine" has that effect. Remember the blackouts in NYC a decade or so ago? Maternity facilities were SWAMPED!

    My grandfather used to make a cough syrup that he kept under the kitchen sink in an old glass milk bottle. It was an old native (Cherokee) recipe that was handed down to him by his grandmother. He was a chef, a somewhat famous one way back when, and he was not the type to share his recipes or even allow people in the kitchen when he was cooking. Which is a damn shame mind you, because when he went, so did his recipes and I can't even begin to describe humanities loss there. While I don't know everything that went into that syrup or exactly how it was made, I do know it was mostly boiled down onions mixed with honey. I can still remember the taste. Not something you'd ever want a spoonful of just because, but it wasn't unpleasant either. It did the trick though, stuff was like magic honestly. Truly wish I could go back and learn from the man.

    Yeah we'll be calling the next generation "Coronials".

    I stopped at the local Agway this morning to pick up some black oil sunflower seed for the critters I feed at work. Normally I'm the only one there that early but today, the place was packed. I was just picking up one 50# bag, usually lasts me 2-3 weeks. Everyone else was there for the same thing but they were all hoarding it, getting 6-10 bags each.

    I looked over the news on my puter both local and national- I did not find such statement.

    Anyone else hear anything like this???..............

    I'm beginning to think she may have got that from FaceBook?

    I haven't heard 4 months but I hope that's not true. I don't know if I've got enough basic supplies to stay in my Bomb shelter home for that long.
