    What's for supper

    I cooked shrimp alfredo last night. Have left overs so I'll probably eat that again tonight or I may cook up some sketti. Depends on how I feel when I get home after fishing this evening.

    COVID-19 - Impact

    Some of the best info I've read about this virus: WHAT YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND, PLEASE READ: Feeling confused as to why Coronavirus is a bigger deal than Seasonal flu? Here it is in a nutshell. I hope this helps. Feel free to share this to others who don’t understand... It has to do with RNA sequencing.... I.e. genetics. Seasonal flu is an “all human virus”. The DNA/RNA chains that make up the virus are recognized by the human immune system. This means that your body has some immunity to it before it comes around each year... you get immunity two ways...through exposure to a virus, or by getting a flu shot. Novel viruses = new, may come from animals= zoonotic.... the WHO tracks novel viruses in animals, (sometimes for years watching for mutations). Usually these viruses only transfer from animal to animal (pigs in the case of H1N1-Swine Flu) (birds in the case of the H1N1-Spanish flu). But once, one of these animal viruses mutates, and starts to transfer from animals to humans... then it’s a problem, Why? Because we have no natural or acquired immunity.. the RNA sequencing of the genes inside the virus isn’t human, and the human immune system doesn’t recognize it so, we can’t fight it off. Now.... sometimes, the mutation only allows transfer from animal to human, for years it’s only transmission is from an infected animal to a human before it finally mutates so that it can now transfer human to human... once that happens..we have a new contagion phase. And depending on the fashion of this new mutation, thats what decides how contagious, or how deadly it’s gonna be.. H1N1 was deadly....but it did not mutate in a way that was as deadly as the Spanish flu. It’s RNA was slower to mutate and it attacked its host differently, too. Fast forward. Now, here comes this Coronavirus... it existed in animals only, for nobody knows how long...but one day, at an animal market, in Wuhan China, in December 2019, it mutated and made the jump from animal to people. At first, only animals could give it to a person... But here is the scary part.... in just TWO WEEKS it mutated again and gained the ability to jump from human to human. Scientists call this quick ability, “slippery” This Coronavirus, not being in any form a “human” virus (whereas we would all have some natural or acquired immunity). Took off like a rocket. And this was because, Humans have no known immunity...doctors have no known medicines for it. And it just so happens that this particular mutated animal virus, changed itself in such a way the way that it causes great damage to human lungs.. That’s why Coronavirus is different from seasonal flu, or H1N1 or any other type of influenza.... this one is slippery. And it’s a lung eater...And, it’s already mutated AGAIN, so that we now have two strains to deal with, strain s, and strain L....which makes it twice as hard to develop a vaccine. We really have no tools in our shed, with this. History has shown that fast and immediate closings of public places has helped in the past pandemics. Philadelphia and Baltimore were reluctant to close events in 1918 and they were the hardest hit in the US during the Spanish Flu. And let me end by saying....right now it’s hitting older folks harder... but this genome is so slippery...if it mutates again (and it will). Who is to say, what it will do next. Be smart folks... #flattenthecurve. Stay home folks. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    COVID-19 - Impact

    All area schools here are closed until further notice. My daughters teacher sent me a link to online programs she can do while out of school. I went to Walmart last night.....very little meats left in the coolers, frozen section was getting bare, no eggs, no toilet paper or paper towels in the aisle but they had some in the lay-a-way area and were rationing those limited supplies. Disposable/flushable wipes are out. Bread, cereal, ramen noodles, canned goods were all getting bare and some were completely out. Cleaning supplies are limited to one per customer and there's not much available. I lucked out and walked down the cleaning aisle just as they were stocking it with a few cases of Lysol so I grabbed a bottle. Found some sausage in one of the coolers and grabbed a few packs to throw in the freezer, still have some venison and sausage from my mule deer I killed in November. One of the local meat markets had a line of cars about 1/4 mile long waiting to get in yesterday. Restaurants are going to drive thru/carry out only. All community gatherings/festivals have been cancelled. My job is continuing with very little change in operations. We are taking extra steps in sanitizing work stations, forklifts and all other MHE. Any given day we have several OTR drivers in here from all over the country. Our own drivers make daily routes down to the greater Houston area, Beaumont, Tyler, Longview, Shereveport LA.....pretty much all over east Texas and west LA.....so their trucks are getting sanitized more than they have been as extra precautions. Texas has 105 active cases and one death so far.
  8. There's 5 confirmed cases of it in the southwest region of the Dominican Republic. WHO just declared it a pandemic......might prepare yourself for quarantine when traveling back home.
  9. MSM lead panic.....it's stupid. Wash your hands, don't touch your face and avoid contact with sick people....nothing different or should be nothing different than every day life. COVID-19 doesn't give you the shits so I don't understand the toilet paper frenzy either.
  10. It won't be long before we see this virus quickly spread from person to person. The first means of contamination is money. Therefore we all need to be diligent.....please, when handling your money use gloves, place money in a Ziploc bag, place bag in an envelope, seal the envelope and mail it to me. I will ensure the money is disposed of legally. I'm doing this for the good of public health.
  11. Doesn't seem like that was 11 years ago! You still in Washington? I would have said "Whichever Friday you aren't working..."
  12. That's cool......I thought he was banned?
  13. His first name is in the OP. I dont know of any charges that have been filed on him. He was a member of the Texas forum that Anthony and I are members of, which he has been banned from for his perverted advances toward women on there and his theft of bows and equipment from members of the same forum.

  14. And the vast majority of them won't. They are hell bent on their socialistic agenda.
  15. The man is the lowest form of scum. Shames me to know he is a Texan.....
