  1. Unreal! A boycott will likely harm the innocent more than a 10% pay cut ever could. Anyway, the decision has been reversed. The CEO will now go without pay for three months.
  2. It's getting close to Easter. I'm sure many fear not getting a ham so they're ordering early.
  3. A new addition! Smoke, Roots, Mountain, Harvest Lots of contemporary recipes mixed in but appears to be a good cookbook.
  4. Hmmm....Yeah, I do have a container of shelf-stable hermetically sealed tofu that I could use. I forgot all about it! Thanks!
  5. I want to make some low-carb venison and mushroom soup, but I don't have any fresh mushrooms — and I'm afraid to go buy some!
  6. One local restaurant, about 1000 feet away, has gone belly-up already! SAD!!!
  7. We're set for 8 months or longer with the garden. I ordered a case of 4 gallons of white distilled vinegar from Walmart for dilly beans, pickled peppers, etc. The vinegar leaked inside the box a bit so I called and they refunded the total — $7.68!!! I always say, the freaky wheel gets the grease! I don't ferment everything, I like the the bright clear pickling of vinegar for some stuff. I should replace the reverse osmosis water filters so I can bank some more filtered water. We have a 6 stage reverse osmosis system with a permeate pump — I sure hope the municipal water stays on!!! I'm poor so I have to squeeze every penny till Lincoln farts! I did buy a butane hot plate so we'd have a way to cook if the electric goes out — other than the outdoor burners.
  8. Wegmans has grocery delivery via Instacart here but I don't see it as being an intelligent choice, in my case anyway, given that the store is just two miles away. Instacart adds a 5% service charge and charges $5.99 for delivery. Curbside pickup makes much more sense. The housemate stopped at Wegmans yesterday to pick-up two of my prescriptions. He passed on the deal because he said 9 folks were bunched-up in a line. I'll try tomorrow, I'm not afraid to swear them straight!!!
  9. The other day I took advantage of Walmart Grocery's curbside pickup discount on a first order. $10 off a $50 order, promo code "WOWFRESH" I placed a minimum order. They were out of 3 products that I ordered, KA bread flour, butter, and something else that I've now forgot. I still received the discount. I didn't permit them to pick substitutions, I went in the store after they loaded the Jeep and picked my own.
  10. Sorry, I can't get excited about delivery, take-out or the like. Strangers, who are potential carriers, coughing on or sneezing on and handling food and packaging — no thank you!!! I'll prepare my own grub!
  11. We're lucky to have a good supply of country hams and bacon (safe at room temperature) as we always do. I recommend ordering some if that's the sort of thing you like — it's a great 'prepper' food! No SARS-CoV-2 or Covid 19 cases in my area, so far, but it'll get here—it probably already is here. This is a small county in western NY — Chemung County, population ~85,500. We're about 250 miles from Manhattan but closely connected in that there are two state prisons here, one max, one super-max, there's also a state psychiatric center here — so there's a lot of traffic back and forth to the city.
  12. I think there's no doubt. Only 6,563 Americans have been tested for the coronavirus so far
  13. Unless there's a drastic change of course sometime soon, I'm concerned about an all-out depression — and possible civil unrest. I suspect there will be an impact on overall food supplies and necessities in the not too distant future — not just what's stocked in stores. Closely monitor the VIX.
