The NLF Draft is tonight and I bet the ratings will be through the roof with this sports deprived nation. And, I’m willing to bet the NFL is going to milk every opportunity it can to extol healthcare workers or anyone working in an essential business to pull at the country’s heartstrings.
The offset spatula is one of the most under-rated kitchen utensils and I never used mine for icing a cake.
“This is not just moving remains — this is handling people’s loved ones,” Professor Penepent said. “And you have to do it with care and compassion, respect and dignity.”
Since early April, Professor Penepent, 57, and his students have been transporting decedents from overwhelmed funeral homes around New York City to crematories in places as far as Pennsylvania and Vermont, helping grieving families and taking some of the pressure off a system strained by the epidemic.
He calls the operation “Hands with A Heart.”
My grandmother died 33-years ago today. If she were still alive, she’d be 118. Her remains were flown in from California but the flight was delayed, and thus, she was literally late for her own funeral. Sadly, she was the first woman I ever saw naked. I remember walking in on her dressing, and she just stood there and talked to me as if nothing were out of the ordinary and all I wanted to do was make a break for it but felt it would have been rude to leave so quickly.

Yesterday I made a reference about world leaders planting trees and then this happened.

It appears Congress is adding to the coronavirus relief aid. I’m surprised we aren’t hearing pushback from the likes of Senator Rand Paul who likes to offset costs if we are adding to our debt. He probably is and I’m not paying attention. It’s hard to believe, but then again, it’s Congress, that the first package’s stipulation that a small business was no more than 500 people at one location gets passed. That’s why places like Shake Shack and Ruth’s Chris Steak House were able to qualify, they were filing not as one organization but per location. I’m not so much upset at them, they were simply playing by the rules, though it is disingenuine.
The oil and gas folks always want the market to play out and not be interfered with until it affects their well being. I bet, uh, a lot of folks would feel more comfortable if Rick Perry was still the Secretary of Energy leading their cause.

Our friend’s stag do (bachelor party) got cancelled because of the COVID-19 lockdown. We decided to get together remotely and spend our isolation time building him a real-life RPG game, so he could get his own back on Covid…
