Haven't decided which alternative to expensive "Yeti" coolers, yet.

A couple weeks ago I saw a Coleman ice chest priced about $35 that claimed "holds ice for 5 days."  Same claim as Yeti brand but about 10% of the price range.  I think it was at Walmart. 

Got a "Lovable Loo" yesterday! No digging holes every day.  Jbee 

What's a "Lovable Loo"?   Is there a link?

The weather just hit the 80's and there are many sunny days coming, Jbee

My wife had to drive through a blizzard conditions driving into town today.  Slow down, shift into 4 wheel drive, try to keep on the road.  Couple of more inches of snow.  Need to move to Arizona.

DRAT!   I sucked in to the April Fools post.   

At least I was asking for confirmation sources.  Not entirely convinced.

Found this on Twitter.   I'm trying to find a video of the WH news briefing. 

"Twonaturistsonaboat  @Twonaturistson

"Very, very surprised by Trumpís morning press conference. Who would have guessed that he was a practicing nudist and that he and Melania were spending Ďmore and more nude timeí at the White House. Strange times."

I would have guessed. Melania has posed for nude photos which are now on-ljne.  I have opined since before the 2016 election that Trump would be more favorable for nudists than other candidates. 

I'm trying to track down and verify the source.  Did anyone else see this or have a link?

Whatís graupel, Bob? From the context itís not one to put on my Christmas list, but not a term Iíve heard before.

Graupel is round snow or soft hail.   From wikipedia:  "Graupel

"Graupel also called soft hail or snow pellets, is precipitation that forms when supercooled water droplets are collected and freeze on falling snowflakes, forming 2Ė5 mm balls of rime. The term graupel is the German language word for sleet. Graupel is distinct from hail and ice pellets. Hail is common in thunderstorms, while graupel typically falls in winter storms. The METAR code for graupel is GS."

We had a half inch of graupel yesterday.  Still covering the ground here in shady places.

I hope your campgrounds aren't all closed in AZ like they are here in WA.   Not that anyone wants to go camping at 40F with 40mph wind, and rain, snow, and graupel.  I need to move to AZ soon.

Oh the irony.  On TV news tonight in Washington State they featured the "Coronavirus Control Center" where govt. agencies, Health Dept. Fire Dept, Police Dept, County Govt, City Govt., etc., get together in 1 room for 12 hours per day to coordinate their Social Distance Program, how to force citizens to stay apart.  Let your mind mull that one over.

Given that most advice, both good and bad, is ignored, it shouldn't be surprising that people don't care for advice. And nowhere is that better demonstrated than in the White House today.

Yes, CDC, FDA, and the medical teams still push bad advice and medical industry profits.  There had to be some butt kicking this week even to get the Battelle PPE sanitizers approved. And, treating Covid-19 with Hydroxychloroquine is opposed by CDC and FDA because it isn't a monopoly profit center for big pharma corporations. Those doctors won't get bribes for approving the life saving medication.  Some more butt kicking had to be done to get that medication into the hands of American doctors.  Our President it taking charge and getting things done.

ive tried rubbing with coconut oil and olive oil and a more oily diet in previous years but its had no noticable benefits

I also tried "everything" to cure painful heel cracks over the past several years.  None of it worked until I started the carnivore diet (for other reasons) and got rid of all plant oils and plant products.   No coconut, canola, or olive oil.  Years of painful heel cracks just went away.  I do sometimes use animal fat for lotion on some of my skin.  Animal fat is really a big part of what healthy skin is made of.  If it gets too dry it needs more.

New research shows that High Cholesterol may play an important role in our natural immunity to diseases such as Covid-19.  This research is consistent with last year's study showing that EU countries with average high cholesterol levels had lower mortality than countries with average low cholesterol.  Its my thinking that high use of statin drugs by men, to lower cholesterol, may be an important reason why more men than women die of Covid-19. 

"cholesterol is an extremely important part of the immune system."

"people with the highest cholesterol levels are best protected from cancer and infections"

A few years ago I bought one of those water backpacks that have a plastic bladder covered with fabric on back pack straps.  It was advertised to cool your back while carrying your water.  It had a plastic tube you could suck water when thirsty.   Problem was the water was warm and tasted like plastic.  I used it a couple of times but didn't like it.

Now I generally reuse plastic soda or commercial bottled water containers. That kind of plastic doesn't flavor the water, and they would get thrown away unless reused.

Its the weather, not the lockdown that keeps me indoors.  Brrrrr!.   Another cold rainy spring.

in the last few days ive also developed a cracked heel and for me more worrying a crack by the thumb nail,

I can sympathize. I suffered from painful cracked heals for several years.  I treated them with superglue which worked for a while until the glue wore off.  Then more glue.

My heel cracks have all vanished since I started the Carnivore diet or "way of eating."   I posted more about that on another topic, but healthy skin is one of the benefits.

Oxford study in UK, "half the population would have already been infected."

Coronavirus has been around a lot longer than most people know.
