You say that, but

1) do probiotic pills even work?
2) do they restore what needs to be restored?

It wasn't too bad. Masks are now mandatory for customers and employees. They have a lot of stuff but certain things are in short supply. I didn't check for TP, though.

Isle of Springs, a little flyspeck so small it barely has a Wikipedia page. It itself shouldn't be opened this year - the only access is via boat, or exiting via Medevac/ Lifestar/ whatever. And while most cottages don't have the widespread family that ours does, the people do come in from all over the country and aren't going to want to socially-distance. It will be outright irresponsible if the island is opened, but it's run by the people who want to vacation there.

One of my relatives even said on the family group text "I could be happy quarantining on the Island for a 14 days!". Which... no. I wanted to throw my phone across the room when I saw that.

I have an idea about that, but it's too mean to mention.

I went to Costco yesterday and there was several pallets each of TP and paper towels. It seemed like everyone I saw had one of each I their cart.

Bah Humbug 04-14-20 03:41 PM

HEB (awesome Texas grocery store) had shelves full of all paper products when I went yesterday. Limit one.

Same here, effective today. Makes me a lot less hesitant to go shopping, even though we are near peak. We've been rotating between Whole Foods, a local supermarket, and the local military commissary–found TP there a week ago, so we're good. Between the three we seem to be able to find pretty much everything.

I'll say one other thing, which is that I am unhappy with how the sad demographics of this pandemic are causing me to think about where I go.

I often put plain kraut on my salad.

It's not fancy kraut with beetroot.

We have regular kraut too. I often sautee onions for a bit, then add garlic, then dump in saurkraut, and put it on low. Excellent side dish with pierogies and/or brats.

We had those too, before the world ended.

The little lady ran the gauntlet at Safeway for those (and much more) today. Right now I'm drinking the brine out of the kraut container that was already in the fridge, yumm!

She also got me a couple of Watermelon Red Bulls!!!! :bday: :bday: :bday:

I love kraut. My mother used to make different kinds. There was a small restaurant here that had knockwurst and saurkraut on rye with dill pickles and mustard. Sad when they closed.

Trainsnorter seems to change his Avatar as often as a there is a change in the weather.

He had Chapeau for a good while; it's only the last year or so that it seems to change frequently.

I can't find it; someone will certainly be able to post the big version up. It was an old man in a cycling outfit raising a glass.

Heíll come around again. Itís one of my favorite pics. Maybe in a day or two.

The sauerkraut I'm eating right now says it's "old fashioned."

Unclear how that differs from modern sauerkraut.

I remembered the picture, I wondered if anyone knew who he was?

I admit when I first saw it I wondered if it was Trainsnorter himself. I think other forum members have made the same mistake.

I appropriated the pic for my avatar a few years ago off of Twitter. I have no idea who the old guy is or who took the pic.

We're having pulled pork here, along with sauerkraut's distant cousin, cole slaw!
