    LCCB makes some great beers. Virginia has an almost overwhelming amount of craft breweries. The problem with them is that almost every one of them makes one particularly awesome beer...and ten shite beers that they also sell. I find LCCB to be one of the few that make more than one great beer. Their Nuclear (nu-klee-er or nuke-u-ler ) Nugget is a heck of a great beer. Their Oyster Stout, while not appeasing sounding, is quite tasty.

    Btw, November 14, 2020 is the release date for the new Ibrik. Mark your calendar!

    One alternate view regarding TP specifically is that people were stealing it from the workplaces they are now no longer going to/laid off from, but that doesn't cover people buying entire pallets of it.

    People staying home are going to eat more cooked food. Typical person eats out a significant % of their meals... think it's around 25% or so.

    Same with TP. People staying home increases home TP usage like 40% or so.

    Concerning meat... the virus is hitting the meat processing plants. Here in MS it's ravaging the chicken processing plants. I would expect the same with beef also.

    Be prepared for the truth.

    I don't know what I paid for them, they just jumped into my cart one day, after looking at some hiking trail recipes. Even at $1 a piece I wouldn't have known that I over paid.
    When you posted $2.27, I thought that was each, not for the 12 pack.
    Wow!
    Yes ramen noodles used to be a lot cheaper as others have posted finding it 10/$10 but the cheapest I've seen it is the shrink wrapped 12 packs at Walmart and Aldi's which used to be $1.94 till this covidemic thing.

    Incredible amounts of sodium. I purposely take the "flavor" (salt) packages out and can use a single packet for about half the case of noodles. I have a can of the flavor packets I figure I've taken about 50,000mg of sodium out of my diet over the past months as I have slightly elevated blood pressure so I try and limit salt where I can.

    Ramen daily would be the fast track to a heart attack, that’s why it’s just college kids who stock it and not preppers. The staples are the cheap and healthy meals.

    You guys with all your barley wines are making me miss Hair of the Dog Brewing Company. When I lived in Cali, I used to get bottles for $3.30 a piece at Trader Joe's. I have looked online everywhere and even spent 30 minutes looking like a crazy man in the craft beer isles of ABC liquor here. I would pay $10 a bottle for a few bottles of Adam. When I was drinking it they only had 5 flavors all named after people. Adam and Fred are my favorite and clock in around 10%-12% ABV. I have been settling for this instead, and ironically a very high end eatery/pub stocks it just for me.

    An italian doctor believes the Coronavirus is weakening there. The article has some mixed messages and it seems that not everyone there is in agreement though.

    Yes, I felt the urge to R/R myself. Decided to go outside and have a mow instead. I also decided to man-up and leave the riding mower in the garage. Ended up mowing everything with the walk-behind. He he, I had two liquid bread breaks while mowing. Hence the not so straight lines. Cheers, fellow CPFers.

    That's clever. Well done, Lynx.

    As far as heritage goes, it depends on which grandparent you trust. One reports us as Comanche. However, my maternal grandfather swears - We ani't no damn Comanche! We're Choctaw."

    I noticed yesterday more restaraunts getting creative about outside dining areas like parking tables outside in a grassy area next to the parking lot, or since 50% capacity allowed (in my state) in unused parking spots. What was even better to see (at least to me) was folks out there enjoying a sit down meal again.

    I also noticed with people I ran into or spoke with on the phone, everybody was a lot less edgey than they were just last week despite all of the snarling taking place across the country. There was a buzz of peace, as smiles were wider while a nice breeze from the north cooled the warm sunshine.

    Maybe it was because our grocery stores are fully stocked again, or no long lines at the McFood joint drive thru as tables are now available. Perhaps it's because folks can get a haircut again here? I dunno. But there was definitely an uptick in morale yesterday. At least on my little slice of planet earth.

    Mr Gardener,
    It looks great to me!

    My Dad always said, "You know the difference between a good hair-cut, and a bad hair-cut? About two weeks."

    In the morning... those lines will be gone, and tomorrow, you'll get to do it all over again. I hope you have more bread, to keep your energy levels up.

    bkkfixer,
    I am glad to hear that you and the people in your community are feeling more relaxed.

    Hopefully it is true that the virus has lost some of its strength, and there won't be a back-lash, and everything will go back to "Life as it was" with few dramatic changes.

    Here's hoping... fingers crossed

    Thanks, Poppy. I spent a lot of extra time on the lawn during the first month of our state's stay at home order. It was therapeutic being able to get outside and work.

    It was more like everybody had Bobby Darin and Frank Sinatra tunes stuck in their head instead of the usual "kill kill kill" death metal tunes blasting the airwaves lately if you know what I mean. A kind of "life goes on during war time" vibe if you know what I mean. One guy was estatic over a pear he had just eaten. I mean jump up and click your heels together estatic.
    There was a scene in Band of Brothers where a small group was playing symphony music in a destroyed town square while folks sifted through the rubble looking for food, furniture or whatever they could salvage. It was kinda like that.

    Well my friend, you did a better job of describing how people were being more relaxed, the first time around.

    It seems to me that pear guy was a little over reactive. Fresh fruit has always been available.

    It has obviously been a labor of love.
    I couldn't spend as much time as you due to allergies. Nor would I enjoy it as much.

    Once I grew a vegetable garden. Once!
    My allergies were pretty significant then, and pulling weeds, wasn't fun.
    By time the veggies were ripe, they were so darn cheap at the supermarket, that there wasn't a savings (not much) and my wife wouldn't eat them because there were cats that roamed the neighborhood. Afraid they may have done their business any where near the veggies. The argument that there is wild life out at the farms didn't hold any water.

    Your property is beautiful!
