    Noteworthy article on Yahoo News this AM, which most of us already knew. The five best (worst??) places to catch COVID: restaurants, bars, cafes, hotels, houses of worship.

      The Newest Hotel Amenity? Virus-Scrubbed Air

      “We talk about it as nature’s cleaning device,” said Kevin Devlin, the chief executive of WellAir, which sells the bipolar ionization system Plasma Air installed at the Hotel Paso del Norte. He noted that air at high elevations in the mountains that “smells clean” has higher amounts of ions.

      ultraviolet-C lamps have been shown to inactivate the virus). Such a system was installed at The Distillery Inn in Carbondale, Colo.

      air filters that remove contaminants. Filters with Minimum Efficiency Reporting Values (MERV) of 13 or higher are best at capturing the coronavirus

        The "newest" amenity is actually the complimentary* pardon one receives with every prepaid booking of the Presidential Suite at any Ttump property . . .

        . . . this is on top of the already available extra-bright light bulbs and the Clorox minibar!!


        *Minimum booking requirements may apply.

        who woulda thought it … preferring lower end motels where every room has a heater / cooler and there is NO CENTRAL AIR system.   It may be a trip …. the (short-term) future of my driving trips will be finding those 1950s and early1960s highway motels my parents had us stay in as we traveled on a modest budget.

  2. The Donald went down to Georgia, he was lookin' for a vote to steal
    He was in a bind, 'cause he was way behind, he was willin' to make a deal
    When he came across a woman signing up voters, succeeding more often than not
    And the Donald jumped up on a hickory stump, said "girl let me tell what
    "I guess you didn't know it, but I'm a vote collector too
    "And if you care to take a dare, I'll make a bet with you
    "Now you run a pretty good ground game, but give the Donald his due
    "I'll bet you power untold against your soul 
            'cause I think I'm better than you."

    Said the woman, "My name's Stacey, and it might be a sin
    "But I'll take your bet, you're gonna regret,
            'cause I'm the best that's ever been."

        Stacey just ignore the polls, and canvass doors real hard
        'Cause hell's broke loose in Georgia and the Donald deals the cards
        And if you win, people are proved more powerful than gold
        But if you lose, the Donald gets your soul

    The Donald opened up his case and he said, "I'll start this show."
    And fire flew from his fingertips as he purged votes from the rolls
    And he pulled a Sharpie across some laws, and it made an evil hiss
    Then Billy Barr and Pence joined in, and it sounded something like this

    [Evil music]

    When the Donald finished, Stacey said, "Well you're pretty good old son
    "But sit down in that chair right there, and let me show you how it's done."

        The Republic's on fire, run, Joe, run
        The Donald's in the White House and so is his son
        McConnell in the Senate needing two more
        Warnock and Ossoff, lets show 'em the door

    [Virtuoso solo music]

    The Donald bowed his head because he knew that he'd been beat
    But the Prince of Lies refused to voluntarily leave his seat
    Stacey said, "Donald it don't matter if you want to go or not
    "'Cause I done told you once, you son of a bitch, 
            It's time for *our* team to take that spot!"


    [Play-off virtuoso solo music]

    Today is National Cookie Day

  4. I'm afraid, after listening to too much of Donnie, Rudy, and Jenna's bile, that I've lost my cookies.

    I guess I’ll have to track down my mom’s Christmas cookie recipe and drop it here before Christmas.
