CathyF, I’m sorry to hear that. My post was about those that were gaming the system not for those for whom UI was a necessity. I think that those that took advantage of not paying rent once eviction was removed from the equation are another group that will get their comeuppance. There will be much wailing and gnashing of teeth.

I’ve been good Gus. Looking forward to when we can get the band back together to break bread.

Less than 40% of those receiving unemployment payments withheld. SMH. I personally know (through my children not my children) many that decided to avoid going back to work as the free cash exceeded what they were earning. Talk about Nemesis. Swift winged avenger. Evolution in action.

Amon, I took screenshots of that article re: US Deaths from Hopkins. Thought it was important and might disappear. Let me know. I’m harrjf at that gmail place. I’d post them (6) here but with IOS I’ve only successfully posted one pic on typepad.

I am saddened by the news of Rush’s death though it seemed inevitable. It will always make me smile that President Trump forced all the democRAT Senators and Reps to attend Rush’s Medal of Freedom award ceremony. 😁

Jane, closest thing I can come up with for making strawberries bleed would be to macerate them. Clean, hull and slice. Put in a bowl, add some sugar and stir. Let sit for at least 30 minutes. They will release juices. Make sure they don’t sit too long or they get mushy.

Willowec Reading CCgirl and Marlene re: children brought to mind the Ages of Man from Hesiod’s “Works and Days”. We are definitely in the Iron Age: “ Thereafter, would that I were not among the men of the fifth generation, but either had died before or been born afterwards. For now truly is a race of iron, and men never rest from labour and sorrow by day, and from perishing by night; and the gods shall lay sore trouble upon them. But, notwithstanding, even these shall have some good mingled with their evils. And Zeus will destroy this race of mortal men also when they come to have grey hair on the temples at their birth (6). The father will not agree with his children, nor the children with their father, nor guest with his host, nor comrade with comrade; nor will brother be dear to brother as aforetime. Men will dishonour their parents as they grow quickly old, and will carp at them, chiding them with bitter words, hard-hearted they, not knowing the fear of the gods. They will not repay their aged parents the cost their nurture, for might shall be their right: and one man will sack another's city. There will be no favour for the man who keeps his oath or for the just or for the good; but rather men will praise the evil-doer and his violent dealing. Strength will be right and reverence will cease to be; and the wicked will hurt the worthy man, speaking false words against him, and will swear an oath upon them. Envy, foul-mouthed, delighting in evil, with scowling face, will go along with wretched men one and all. And then Aidos and Nemesis (7), with their sweet forms wrapped in white robes, will go from the wide-pathed earth and forsake mankind to join the company of the deathless gods: and bitter sorrows will be left for mortal men, and there will be no help against evil.” Lots in there that applies today. Sadly. (translation by Hugh G. Evelyn-White)

OL, nice story in the DailyMail about Nantucket. Locals no doubt po’d about the 7K summer people that stayed. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9094417/Nantucket-residents-call-islands-COVID-contact-tracer-rat-other.html

Pictures being posted lately show much more damage on the even side of 2nd Ave. The building at address 172 has collapsed for example. This is directly across the street from the ATT entrance on 2nd. Google earth shows that there are many sidewalk grates on the even side of 2nd but not the odd side. That tells me that there is a very large subterranean transformer vault on that side. Loss of the transformers would explain the ATT CO outage (without substantial visible damage to their building) as well as the Sungard outage as they are around the corner on Commerce St. I have also seen info that ATT is punching holes in their building to bring in power.

Lots of very loud, deep rumbles from aircraft last night probably out of Truax (Dane County). Usually they are good about providing training times in advance but nothing about last night.

Some random stuff A Slovenian group, Perpetuum Jazzille, has an a cappella version of Africa that is incredible. https://youtu.be/yjbpwlqp5Qw My first MIL just celebrated her 104 birthday. Love that women. Wish her daughter had been more like her. When I got remarried part of the deal was that Nana could come and live with us. She grew up in a different world. She told me once that when she was newly married and pregnant she asked her neighbor how the baby “got out”. Neighbor replied, “Same way it got in honey”. As far as a second Trump term I am pinning all my hopes on “Fraud vitiates everything”. Everything else is alarums and confusion.

I’m friends with a guy who’s Dad was a small town dentist. When Dad died it fell upon the two sons to clean out the house. The Dad had a big library that the boys were loading into a pickup to take to the dump. A stack of books got dropped and money fell out of the books. Change of plans! They went through all the books and ended up with over $15K.

Henry, while tracking is easier in a cashless society imagine the ease of petty despots able to stop a business from getting payments for wrong think/actions.

MM, I thoroughly enjoyed Zenna Henderson’s books growing up. My brother and I were into SF and between us had more than 700 paperbacks. Our attic bedroom had a 6’x20’ closet with bookcases running down one long side. I always enjoy Narc’s references to SF books. I think we have a lot of overlap.

So Buckeye, two more weeks for you to pray that neither Michigan or Michigan State has a Covid outbreak. I can see Harbaugh sticking it to the Buckeyes in what is hopefully his last college game. Since he couldn’t beat them on the field.

Happy Thanksgiving to all. If you live in a state that restricts gatherings go around your neighborhood and note the addresses of those still displaying Biden signs. Call the authorities to report that you think they are having an illegal get together.

Boris, since you and I are both in Verona, I can’t believe we haven’t had a meetup. Probably a JOM record for shortest distance traveled. You should also think about attending a lunch in the Milwaukee area the next time with Mel, Henry and Gus. Great guys.

CathyF, hosting Thanksgiving? In Dane County WI, rules go into effect today that no indoor gatherings in your home other than immediate household members until Dec 16th. We plan to be law breakers.
JiB, I did not spend 80,000 years climbing to the top of the food chain to start eating veggie chili. 😉
