I'm so glad Unsolved Mysteries is back. Already watched all those yesterday. 

Started this tonight. Had to skip episode 3 bc I wasn’t in the mood of having to read it the whole time, but pretty good so far.

Cincinnati announced a mask mandate last week, starting on the 9th. Why the huge delay? If they work, why let the "plague" continue to spread for a week until they are mandatory?

I have Athlete A on my list to watch. Got wrapped up in another that I've watched before, but it's been awhile -- Roll Red Roll.

My father-in-law gave me a smoker he'd only used twice. I'm semi-interested in testing it out. I don't know anything about it, except it's an electric one.

Probably will do wings as my first tester.

I always watch Jim Jones documentaries -- shoot, I typically watch any "cult" documentary. That's the religion background background I have.

I'm so glad Unsolved Mysteries is back. Already watched all those yesterday. 

The Innocent Files and Trial by Media are great ones too.

Just onions, if available, is my preference. Not a huge hot dog fan, but will eat them.

I really enjoy the different styles of dogs that can be done, and would definitely try most of them out. I haven't done them yet, but I'm extremely intrigued by the Seattle dog.

Lake Cumberland with the in-laws. It'll be tame as all activities are cancelled. I'll still drink though.

Old Fashioned

Gin and tonic

I'd go international, if I could. Unfortunately, I am staying close enough to family so my kiddos can have great relationships with their grandparents.

I love Northern Ireland. If it was stateside, probably around Green Bay or near a place where I can watch a lot of soccer and have a nice view.

I have a trim roughly 1-2 times a year. It was 2-3 times a year, can't remember if I've really done 4 times in a year.

If I can remember, the trimmer is set on 4 or 5 when I trim, so that's typically the shortest I go.

I've had mine since May 2009. I have zero desire to shave my face ever again.

Anybody see this? I'm not surprised the virus was found, as I have thought it's been around since 2018 (if not before). It's just hard to tell how long it's existed, but no one had a name or test for it. Chalk it up to a "flu-like" or "pneumonia-like" death, and move on.

Spanish virologists have found traces of the novel coronavirus in a sample of Barcelona waste water collected in March 2019, nine months before the COVID-19 disease was identified in China, the University of Barcelona said on Friday.


They first found the virus was present in Barcelona on Jan. 15, 2020, 41 days before the first case was officially reported there.

And, because some friends and I were talking about it, I was able to find some data on a "historical" perspective of death rate. Turns out 2020 was better than 2018 from February 1 through March.

In 2018, 485,803 people died in February and March. About 6,120 of those people, or 3%, were classified as having died of influenza or pneumonia.
From Feb. 1 through March 28 of this year, 435,808 people died. About 1,150 were classified as having died of COVID-19, and 23,729 were classified as having died of the flu or pneumonia.

We will celebrate 10 years in July. Not sure what we'll do, something small as we did an early 10-year last year to Ireland/Northern Ireland.

Dated for 3.5 years to the day we got married. Her engagement ring was a Christmas present, we got married 7 months later.

51 years this past January. We worked together in the same school system for over 30 years.

How are we supposed to believe anything today.

I flat out have no idea who or what to believe anymore. I wish there were a mandate put out that all written information be labeled on the top of the front page...factual, satire, persuasive, fictional....whatever. I’m completely sick of about 85% of everything I come across. If this article is true then a lot of people should be canned. I can’t imagine my livelihood came from writing lies and false truths trying to scare or trick or persuade people.

I don't know anything about the Bubba Wallace situation, outside of a "noose was found."

I do know, growing up on a farm it was common that the garage door rope was tied in a loop at the end. It's much easier to grab the loop and pull instead of just a dangling rope. Sometimes the rope had knots on them to help pull it down (depending on how high the garage door was and how much you had to pull).

If it truly was only the rope, I never would have thought it was a "noose" (unless it was tied exactly like a noose).

I did a trip too, South Dakota for a camp.

It was a nice trip. Airline and airport was pretty smooth operating. I would do it again.

OSH replied to "What a great damn day" at 08:01 am

Slept...finally. Then: grocery shopping, weedeated and sorted the back yard, grilled (steaks, potatoes, jalapenos), and relaxed with the family. Power went out around 8:15pm, so we went to McDonald's for a treat. Back home and bed.

Good Father's Day.
