Why wouldn’t it be a good time to resurrect the full service gasoline station or at least a line of pumps at the station? With the fear of contracting the virus from the pump, the octane button, the credit card reader, etc., why not just stay seated in your car and hand your credit/debit card securely to a fully protected, sanitary wipe in hand attendant. With current gas prices depressed, the gasoline retailer could charge an extra 20-30 cents a gallon and provide a worthwhile service for the convenience and safety of gasoline buying public. And in return, help the economy by providing a job to the numerous out of work bartender, waiter, casino dealer, etc. Additionally, the driving public is much safer as tires are properly inflated and oil levels are appropriate. Of course there may be some g-asinine law/ regulation in place prohibiting full service and perhaps the demand is waning as more and more of us have less places to go, I’m just trying to help. If you are listening Mr. President, Mitch, Chuck, Nancy, for a little slice of $2 trillion largesse, I’ve gotten plenty of ideas, good, bad and ugly.

IMHO, I truly believe with the current crazy $h!t going on and fluctuations of the percent or odds of an event happening, 2020 will surely be the year that Bigfoot is finally and definitively captured on film/electronic media, in a cage or with a high powered rifle. Hell, if anyone is sick to death of this social distancing crap, a likelier candidate there could not be. I only hope it doesn’t happen somewhere round Wuhan or COVBIG-20 here we come... Nite all, got to get some sleep so I can wake up ten minutes before not showering, not changing clothes, grabbing a cup of joe and walking the remaining 20 feet to my place of work. The American new normal. TMI, I know.
From earlier today: “I don't know about anyone else but I'm sick [not literally] of thinking about this crap. Everybody's got a different, useless opinion including me... and even the experts. I'm gonna focus on stuff I can influence and control which is very little. But it still takes a lot of time and effort. ... truncated... Posted by: The Infamous Ignatz | March 18, 2020 at 05:33 PM” Thinking and hearing, yes, very much so. More useful opinions and information could be gleaned from TV when after midnight the big 3 and PuBiS went off the air in the days of this poster’s youth. Much more or this crap and all one will have is a lot of time and waning effort. With that this useless opinion is going off the air.

Good to see not all sports organizations have suspended competition. Though no crowd, the tuff ass bull riders of the PBR are still going. Will probably have their largest TV audience ever. Yippee ki-yay!

This was posted in the March 5th edition of the Shelton Clipper. It is a small town newspaper that took over the publication of five area newspapers. The Sunbeam is one of the papers taken over.

As I am technically challenged in posting pictures, from the files of my hometown newspaper in Nebraska: Sunbeam One Hundred Years Ago Twenty Sixth Year- Number 21 Thursday, March 4, 1920 Quite a few cases of small pox have developed in the community within the past ten days and at present the disease is pretty well scattered over the community. The public schools and places of amusement will not be closed for the present at least because of the fact that the exposures have become so numerous that such a course would do little to check the disease at this time.

Clarice, thanks for the story share at 10:40, clearly remarkable. It is unbelievable how much more news can be gleaned from this site than the TV news. I believe the local news is more useful and digestible with SAP on and Closed Caption off.

Thanks CV and Ig. Signing off as these old bones need a nap. Could’ve never been a surgeon as I could not do my best job at seven something in the morning and just after changing to DST to boot. Thanks again all.

Yes that’s my understanding. Appreciate the wishes. Doc said surgery went very well. She has to spend the night and no doubt by the weekend will be back busting balls.

I honestly believe more people under the age of 60 will die from consuming the new KFC offering of fried chicken sandwiched between two glazed fried donuts than covy19. Nothing like biding one’s time on a Monday in the surgical waiting room listening to the local doom and gloom news on one TV and another TV above my head with the CNBC market malaise. Why can’t they just have the weather on 24/7? And, Why did I leave home without a bottle of whiskey as something in this frap is likely to do me in?

Ha! Limited edition, get it while you still can: Could have swore the TV announcer referred to the rooks of GWB, Cheney, BO and Sleepy Joe as “crooks”. Democrat King and queen: Symbolic Empty Podium (Yep!) Also, nothing quite as formidable as an ass riding an ass into battle, priceless!

Miss M., thanks always for your posting of PDJT’s tweets. Especially, the KC Chiefs tweet! Regarding any real consequences or punishment for these government miscreants, I’ll keep that short, dim glimmer of hope burning. But after following almost 20 years of this brewing shit stew beginning with the Clinton cabal and promises of appropriate justice, I’ll keep my real money off the table. I’d put more coin on a mishap of exercise equipment occurring to one of these deserved souls than courtroom justice. Perhaps with dwindling donations to the Clinton Foundation, HRC is open for some contract work. That might assure a broken bone near a vital organ instead of a blackened eye.
Really, who is more dangerous: the 100 senators, the handful of democrat house managers and CJ Roberts or an equal number of random Wuhan Chinese? Why not allow these Wuhanis to frolic in our nation’s capital while the other group holds their Peach Mint jubilee in Wuhan until the lifting of the quarantine. I can see many more Americans glued to their TVs watching, waiting and wagering which senator’s resting head might cease to rise first.
To Buckeye from 1:45p: Regarding interracial ads (not that there’s anything wrong with that), I have been of the belief these recent couple of months, that my little circle of the world just hasn’t kept up or progressed with the rest of the modern parts of America.. I know of not a single interracial couple or of a husband that gets a new car for Christmas. I guess I found the wrong girl /s. The only new car I got for Christmas was a Hot Wheel. To Iggy and all, as stated last night: Happy Day 737,440 or ~. Out, will twerk lurk later.

Post of the day, IMO: “The FBI lying to FISA Court isn't a crime. But, if you lie to the FBI after they lie to FISA Court to spy on you, it's a crime. Posted by: Stephanie Nene Not Your Normal Granma | December 09,” Regarding Barr’s comments, I’d much rather have read that he ended his remarks like Bluto in Animal House with different names: “With respect to DOJ personnel discussed in the report, the Department will follow all appropriate processes and procedures, Well, just kiss my ass from now on! Not me! I'm not gonna take this! Wormer, he's a dead man! Marmalard, dead! Niedermeyer—“
Happy Birthday, Clarice! I never realized until tonight that the creators of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer named a reindeer after you. I am of course, assuming you are my age or minutes, hours or days older than me, as I will be 60 later in the month and Rudolph isn’t as old as I. If my assumption is misguided, I sincerely apologize and wish you a happy, happiest birthday!

Iggy, My condolences on the loss of your friend. Perhaps the somewhat recent suggestion of a wise man and listening to Dwight Yoakam’s “The heart that you own” will give you an ounce of comfort.

Finally after various catch up reading sessions, reached current day JOM and thread. Commentary from an occasional poster: Pedo jEff Ep (PEE), the “j” is silent: Q-Wacked or Suicide; A-If suicide, the autopsy should list cause of death as Assisted Suicide. Reason-Years of powers-to-be/authorities in charge actions and explanations in high profile deaths (JFK, RFK, Vince Foster, PEE, etc.) and tragedies (OKC Bombing, TWA 800), have led to swamp gut sickness manifesting in conspiracy nut flu. I’m sorry but I have almost as much faith in the ME report and autopsy as the CIA zoom climb of TWA 800. Yesterday’s Keto Cauliflower Yea or Nay Discussion: A-Big Yea Two favorites, with the bosses directions below the links, Yum! I omit green onions and use crumbled bacon bits I dip florets in an egg wash, then roll in Almond flour. Let sit in refrigerator 15 minutes. Then place in oven proof dish, pour butter and drizzle Frank’s Hot sauce over them and bake. Thanks for your time and attention. Now we resume your regular scheduled lurking or commenting.
