Day 85 of House Arrest due to the Kung Flu

Sunday, June 7th, 2020

Things are loosening up. We went out to dinner again. Met a sister-in-law and her husband, along with another couple, at Shady’s Burgers. We had desert at Andy’s.

A nice night. But, again, the staff wearing masks is an annoyance.

I got into it with one of the party about the masks making the health situation worse than no masks.

The restaurant staff (we were there for two hours) each wore the same mask the entire time. They are serving food. They are going in the kitchen (grease!) and bringing food out. They touch the masks. They are wearing gloves but I saw not one of them change gloves. It is all a joke.

(Heh… I got distracted again. Didn’t put the post up last night)

This whole pandemic lock down is one of the worst cases of the current living conditions in this country: We are living under the rule of a Nobility that suffers no consequences for being wrong.

The political and cultural leadership is increasingly hereditary and never suffers genuine consequences for being wrong.

And this is why it is tyranny: I can lose my job for saying the wrong thing about current events. Something that normally wouldn’t even be terribly controversial

Day 84 of House Arrest Due to the Kung Flu

Friday, June 5th, 2020

Things are returning to normal here in Dallas. We went to Vector Brewing for dinner tonight. Everything was good.

I finished the deck.

It took me the week, with some solid help from the Deuce to get this done. It was in the 90’s and sunny all week. It was kind of brutal out in the sun for the week.

The Vector waitrons were wearing masks. I can’t stand this from the service people. I am not aware of when this will change. I do hope soon.

We are at the end of week 12 of this nonsense of the Winnie the Flu House Arrest.

The riots have been interesting. It is clear that Antifa is a worldwide organization. I know this is not the conventional view, but I don’t hold conventional views.

Day 83… of the Wu Flu House Arrest

Friday, June 5th, 2020

Nothing new to report. Nothing but news about Antifa causing the protests to turn into violent riots.

Worked on the deck until I was gassed.

Didn’t get this post up yesterday as I was distracted by the orientation flipping on my pictures. This is very distracting and since I have a really shitty hosting company I have no easy fix.

Day 82 of the Winnie the Flu House Arrest

Wednesday, June 3rd, 2020

The Deuce and I did more work on the deck.

It is going to look nice.

Pictures soon.

Oh… I went to a bar again this afternoon. Things are starting to feel somewhat normal.

Just because I can.

The White Rock Fermentorium

Monday, June 1st, 2020

For the first 78 days of the Wu Flu House Arrest I worked on turning the garage into a fermentorium. I am very interested in traditional methods of food preservation.

Here is the finished work:

This is the brewing area. I intend to make beer, wine and possibly start to distill too.

 

One side of the space.

 

The other side of the space.

 

Some detail of the space.

 

Wuhan Apocalypse House Arrest Day 80

Monday, June 1st, 2020

Starting on a deck in the back yard.

It will be long and narrow, really just to cover this disarray:

The framing will be trickier than it looks from the photo. I’ll post progress.

2nd Post of Day 79 of Kung Flu House Arrest

Sunday, May 31st, 2020

I’ve been saying this for weeks:

Neither surgical nor cotton masks effectively filtered SARS–CoV-2 during coughs by infected patients.

From this study.

Wearing masks has sunken into virtue signalling territory. Not wearing a mask, to those that wear masks, marks you as a Covidiot and supporter of Orange Man.

Wu Flu Pandemic… Day 78

Saturday, May 30th, 2020

Day 78… The start of the 12th week of this nonsense.

We are getting a little change of story given the rioting going on around the country. The rioters are the worst sort of people. They are white people destroying the neighborhoods of poor blacks. They should be shot on sight. In Minneapolis I bet many of them are antifa from outside the state

I don’t have much of an opinion on the George Floyd incident except that he did not deserve to die.

 

 

Day 77 of the Wu Flu House Arrest

Friday, May 29th, 2020

Finished construction on the Fermentorium.

Got faster internet. Over 600mbps. The Deuce is thrilled with this for his gaming. SWMBO and I don’t really notice much difference.

I went to HS and college in Minneapolis. I’ve been watching the riots along Lake Street with some interest. I am really disappointed that the police have abandoned the scene. This is an example of anarcho-tyranny. None of the people involved in the protests will be arrested let alone face jail time. Yet… I’m supposed to sort my trash, separating out the recyclables.

What utter bullshit.

We have the worst political class. They are fundamentally unserious people.
