  1. With the Sear's catalog, you just grab to the next page.
  2. Testing the players before letting them in the facilities initially and not testing them every time they enter the facilities prevents nothing. If they are not isolating the players, coaches, and staff from the general public, testing is like peeing in the wind and expecting to not get wet.
  3. Some Florida bars and restaurants have temporarily closed due to employees and patrons coming down with COVID-19. Florida test cases have risen, but the ratio of positive tests to tests given remains the same (5.35%) and the ratio of deaths to positive cases has decreased slightly (3.8%). The hospitalization rate (16.2%) has dropped by more than 3 percentage points since the reopening started.
  4. Houston halted voluntary workouts when 6 symptomatic players tested positive for COVID-19. UH did not test every player before allowing them to come to their facilities.
  5. Don't know, but I paid way more than $20 Canadian dollars for each.
  6. A British game show, Countdown. I got into it watching the comedy parody version of the show "8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown" on Youtube. I do well with the numbers, not so much with the letters.
  7. I love it all and I really don't care whether the food is traditional and authentic or not. My daughter's inlaws are 2nd generation Italian. The son-in-law's linguini and clams are the best I've ever had. His mother's meatballs and tomato sauce are amazing. Chinese? Zom Hee in Pinellas Park, FL. It's my favorite Chinese Restaurant. It's a family-owned business that has been there for 35 years. I don't know whether it is still there or not, but 40 years ago, there was a Mexican place in downtown Racine, Wisconsin owned and operated by a Mexican immigrant I worked with at Delco Electronics in Oak Creek. To this day, the best Mexican food I've ever had. The red snapper they made there was unbelievable.
  8. Old Dennis Leary joke. "Bring me a live cow over to the table! I'll carve off what I want and RIDE THE REST HOME!"
  9. Texas hospitals are under 18% capacity involving COVID cases. Texas has also increased testing, up to 1.15 million. Florida is showing increased infections, too. All-time highs. However, they have expanded testing considerably, 250,000 on May 4 to 1.28 million as of today (400%). Based on the ratios on May 4, the ratio of tests to positive cases continues to be in decline as does the ratio of positive cases to deaths and positive cases to hospitalization.
  10. Can't get Grippo's here. :( I like kettle cooked jalapeño chips. (Miss Vickie's over the other brands.)
  11. Happy Belated Birthday!!!
  12. It depends on the cut as to time and temp. I purchased some 2 inch thick ribeyes last Saturday. I like ribeyes just a hair over medium-rare, 139 degrees. They came out perfectly. Sirloins I will prefer at 137. Since I got my sous vide, I've never had a steak prepared at any restaurant better than I can do myself.
