  • Commented on Yet another novel I will no longer write
    Aaagh! I’m so so sorry about reality outpacing your book, and I’m sorry for myself as now I won’t be able to read it, and I really want to after that first chapter! Man. It was so good. 2020 sucks....
  • Commented on Update to Public Appearances in a time of pandemic
    Re: various posts about Mexico A friend of mine had to go to Tijuana twice last week for emergency dental work. She said it was a ghost town. And then she posted pictures of the very empty streets. So there...
  • Commented on Public appearances in a time of pandemic
    San Diego update: my neighborhood is a ghost town. A bunch of jerks gathered in large crowds at the beaches so the associated parking lots have been closed. I found all the food I needed at Trader Joe's but still...
  • Commented on Infomercial Interlude
    Hooray! I will look forward to this....
  • Commented on Public appearances in a time of pandemic
    Yup and I am having to go to the stores almost every day as they are so picked over. Still no luck with toilet paper, but I have plenty of chocolate....
  • Commented on Public appearances in a time of pandemic
    Jumping in on the bean discussion. I think I'll be cooking a lot more of them in the future as meat seems to be hard to find in the stores. I've had great luck reducing digestive discomfort with chickpeas by...
  • Commented on Public appearances in a time of pandemic
    To hear that Powell's has had to close makes this feel real in a way almost nothing else has, even though I live in San Diego and only go to Powell's when I visit extended family in Oregon. I think...

    If you have access to Trader Joe's, 21 Seasoning Salute is a sodium-free, savory blend....
  • Commented on Public appearances in a time of pandemic
    We can’t take a test because none are available, basically—we could even pay for it. An acquaintance of mine had the symptoms with a fever of 102 as well as an immuno-compromised husband at home, and she couldn’t get a...
  • Commented on Public appearances in a time of pandemic
    Well, I went to two grocery stores last night and there were ridiculously long lines at both. I don’t know if it was the ridiculous pep talk from the Orange Idiot, or the fact that all sports were suddenly canceled,...
  • Commented on Public appearances in a time of pandemic
    Yup, science meeting in Vienna in early May as well as the road trip to Finland to see some friends. Art exhibitions and art networking events here in Socal. And very particular to the San Diego/Tijuana region there is a...
  • Commented on COVID-19
    Replying to various reponses to my gardening travails: I am right in between zone 10a and 10b in San Diego County. The coldest I have ever seen it get is 39F/4C. In the summer it can get up to 104F/40C....
  • Commented on COVID-19
    So far I've had terrible luck growing vegetables in my garden. They are mostly devoured by caterpillars just when they're getting good. I'm trying to come up with a screen or covering for this season. I have been able to...
  • Commented on COVID-19
    Yes, I saw that earlier and it made my blood run cold. I'm actually starting to think that the administration is purposely f*cking up testing to keep the numbers down, or maybe they just want a bunch of people to...
  • Commented on COVID-19
    Yup....
  • Commented on COVID-19
    Just dropping by to note that I am feeling less like a paranoid fool for stocking up on food in light of the continuing lies and obstructionism coming from the US “administration”. I’m just here in Socal waiting for the...
  • Commented on COVID-19
    My neighborhood grocery store had no shortages of anything except dried beans and rice. And my husband reported a run on bottled water a couple of days ago....
  • Commented on COVID-19
    Right there with you, S.P. Zeidler, I feel pretty sour too! I read somewhere (can’t remember where) that it was transmissible via fecal matter so if it isn’t that’s great news. And of course, how could a foreign vaccine be...
  • Commented on COVID-19
    Here in San Diego there was a very large outbreak of Hepatitus A among the city’s homeless a while back. It took a while for the city to really deal with it as I recall. I know that this current...
  • Commented on COVID-19
    I eat a lot of these foods. In addition I’m trying to get a reasonable amount of exercise and keep up with tai chi. One supplement I’m fond of is NAC (N-acetyl cysteine). It helps your body make more glutathione....
  • Commented on COVID-19
    Ha! Maybe a “Yan house”? I would kill for a basement here in Socal. I don’t know why most houses here don’t have basements. A basement would be the perfect place to store my ever-growing stash of pandemic/earthquake/camping supplies....
  • Commented on COVID-19
    My paternal ancestors were mostly German with a sprinking of Dutch and English and moved from Virginia to Kentucky to just the other side of the river*; my family name lives on too though no thanks to me. Maternal side...
  • Commented on COVID-19
    Oh dear, upon perusing the news in California this morning I fear that we are heading into worst-case territory with the virus. Still not letting people test.The state has the fifth largest economy in the world; couldn’t we just order...
  • Commented on COVID-19
    Anywhere near Owensboro? The only time I ever heard anyone use the term "Yankee" was in reference to houses with basements, which my dad calls "Yankee houses"....
  • Commented on COVID-19
    Ah yes, I remember hearing about that book and it look interesting. I have long thought that there are many flavors of “southern”. And ironically, all of my relatives in western Kentucky and even just over the river in Indiana...
  • Commented on COVID-19
    I think there is an urban/rural divide in the South much like the rest of the US. Visiting my relatives in their small Kentucky town feels like going back in time about 40 years. What I find suffocating is the...
  • Commented on COVID-19
    Spent the summers with my Southern grandparents growing up. My experience of grits: delicious with butter, salt, and pepper. Also had a delicious dish with shrimp and creamy grits in New Orleans a while back...but plain grits??? Yuck!...
  • Commented on COVID-19
    Okay, now I’m craving posole!...
  • Commented on COVID-19
    I’ve been building up a reserve of food etc. in a measured way over the past week. But for me this is overdue as I live in earthquake country. Storage is a real issue but if it’s a matter of...
  • Commented on COVID-19
    Definitely come uo with a back-up plan for your little dog; anything can happen any day and it will give you peace of mind. I have upped my handwashing/hand gel game since I had to travel unexpectedly three weeks ago....
