Rambling (Ranting?)

No food inspections due to orange moron acting like the five-year old he is.  Here’s a bit from a Tumblr post on keeping safe.

“Buy hard, solid veggies and fruits (apples, melons) or ones with rinds (bananas are probably fine). Scrub the peel/rind thoroughly with soap and water before consumption.

The more solid and dense the meat, the less likely it is for contamination to spread very far. Buy your meat in solid cuts, NOT GROUND. Especially not ground chicken rn, salmonella bad.

Cook things thoroughly. Follow guidelines for the internal temperatures meat is supposed to reach and stick to those guidelines. Use a meat thermometer. Make your steaks well done for a while.

I’d stay away from shellfish as a whole if I were you. The diseases you can get from it are some of the nastier ones. No sushi for a while, too. If you have fish, make sure it was frozen following anti-parasitic guidelines and cook thoroughly.”

Saw a recipe for healthy chocolate truffles.  Chocolate truffles are candy.  Candy, by it’s very definition, is not healthy.  It is a treat.  Healthy candy is an oxymoron.

Housing inspected today.  FAIL, because the vent is filthy, because the central air filters have not been changed since last February, and had not been changed for three or four years before that.  Should be done every three months, and used to be done every six, but this landlord does the superficial things to make the building look good, but doing the important things for the tenants is apparently not on his list.  I am not cleaning the vent, because it needs to be shown how crap this is.

Friends are coming today to finish up the work they are doing for me.  Then it will be dinner at the Chieftain, an Irish pub type restaurant that has the best Guinness Stew you could imagine.  Oh, yum.  It is run by an actual Irish family, from actual Ireland.  🙂 Guinness is good stuff, people.

Watching a lot of non-American shows on the subscriptions, you can really see how much and why the rest of the planet do not particularly love America.  I’m not too big on it lately, either, especially since our pres has made hatred, racism, misogyny, and everyother crap things humans are capable of, acceptable again.  For shame, Trump and his Republican cronies. The worst of humanity is running my country.

On the other hand, and have you noticed there is always an other hand, it’s a cold but brightly sunny winter day.  The day length seems to be increasing dramatically.  The farther North you are, the more obvious it is.  DD is in Texas for her job, and the other night when she called, it was 70 degrees and broad daylight there while it was 32 and pitch dark here.  Still no snow, but I’m still hopeful.  It’s only the first half of January.  Still time.

  1. Texas? Too bad she can’t hang a left and head over here for a day.

    There aren’t words enough to voice my thoughts over what is going on.

    Great tips.
