That comet pic is friggin' sweet, Jup.


Hit up LTD, per usual Sunday with friends. I walk in, stand in line (yes, 6 ft apart ;) ). One line to pay, then you go get your beer. I hear "Hey, Rube! Come over here!" from Kristin, the beertender. I walk over to the bar, and "Here's your beer, it's on the house." :D

It's not the greatest image but we made homemade hummus including the tahini completely from scratch.
Did you peel all the chickpeas? That's a serious pain in the a.
No - our food processor is good enough to pulverize them and still make for a very creamy end result.

I think I was able to see it from my house but all the light in the neighborhood made it hard for me to make out the tail too clearly. I don't have a good set of binoculars and was really wishing I did last night.

At this point, they probably don’t need to be good binoculars. You’ll see it better, anyway.

Waiting in line at Back Channel today, and saw what I can only assume is that local Exotic Car Club drive by. Quite a few Ferraris (newer and vintage), a Studebaker, an Opel, a Porsche sprinkled in the mix, etc. That really made my day. It was that awesome.

First, glad to hear you're feeling better Beauner!

Well, I'm back. My exit wasn't pretty but my head wasn't in a good space. I've struggled at times mightily throughout the last four months and social media has been at the heart of it. I shunned FB and Twitland for a while in April/May and I've started again this weekend...maybe I can make it permanent like Cowgirl.

I like social media but yeah, not in 2020. I've lurked here a bit over the last few weeks and I realized I miss this random mix of misfits. :D

I've been really careful throughout this whole thing, and your posts about how miserable you felt have been another validation of why I continue to be pretty cautious. I also have asthma (low grade, I don't need a daily inhaler or anything, but it flares up anytime I have any sort of respiratory illness), so while I'm pretty confident I wouldn't die from it, I think I'd have a real tough time with it, and be miserable for quite a while.

Glad to hear you're feeling better!

First test was negative. For whatever that is worth. I'm debating whether I want to go get an antibody test to see if that sheds any actual clarity, but even the accuracy on those has been questionable. I went the quickie route (though it took 8 days to get results) and did the self-administered test so there's a pretty good chance I just didn't do it right. Then the second one came back positive which was taken 24 hours later. So who knows.

My doctor told me she'd be shocked if it was anything else, given the symptoms I had and the severity with which they hit, and how some have lingered.

I'm going to try to work out tonight. Will be interesting to see how weak I got.

Very glad you came through it. Hopefully you get a negative test sooner rather than later. I hear some people waiting a month or so through several positive tests. That would be annoying if you already feel better.

I don't think the antibody test will tell you much that you don't already know. That test would be better for people who've been ill and have never been tested, but would like to know if they've had the virus in the past. Or for people who haven't been ill and are praying they've gone through it asymptomatic.

A guy my dad works with got sick, and got two COVID tests, both came back negative. He was about to come back to work, because he was feeling a bit better (but was still slightly symptomatic), the management told him to go and get one more test, and if it came back negative a third time, he could come back in, and sure enough the 3rd one came back positive.

These stories are kind of freaking be out. All three of us tested negative a week and a half ago, and the wife and the kid seem to be fine now. I'm struggling to shake off whatever it is. Was nearly 100% on Friday, but have been worse when waking up the last three days. Still nothing to the extent of what Beauner went through, though. It is still primarily in my nose and sinuses, but now my digestive system has joined in the fun. No aches or fever.

I was fortunate enough to not have any digestive system symptoms. Maybe partly because my throat was so sore last week that I could barely eat anything solid. The first week I was still largely eating my normal diet (tacos, sandwiches, chicken, etc.) before my throat started acting up.

Saturday and Sunday I ate solid foods and haven't had any issues.

Yeah the accuracy reporting on the tests definitely seems to be an issue. One of my softball teammates has to get tested each week for work. He's tested positive once and negative 8-9 times. But the one time he tested positive he had to stay home until he got three straight negative results.

5 days without Faceplace or Twitland. I do feel mentally better. I've made it my goal to be more positive and this week I feel better for it. On my Instagram account I've challenged myself to post something that makes me happy for 30 days straight. The list I've compiled is actually longer than that...THAT, makes me happy!

Got to play my first softball tournament since getting sick yesterday. Although the weather was unpleasant (sooooooo frickin sticky) and we had a 30ish minute rain delay around 3:30pm, we ended up getting to the championship game. We forced the "if necessary" game (double elimination, we had to win twice to win it) right as the mega storm rolled in. We were down 12 runs in bottom 5 needing to score 3 to stay alive from the mercy rule. We scored 16 to take the lead. It was a blast.

So we ended up splitting the championship (see picture below).

Felt no ill effects during or after (unless you count the usual body soreness that comes with playing 8 games in a day).

Was great to be back playing.

It was super cool but also borderline scary watching that rolling right towards us. It got so freaking dark so fast. Then random flashes of lightning (way off in the distance still) just lit up the sky.

Spent last weekend at Grand View Lodge on a family vacation. Lots of boating, swimming, etc. with the kids and grandkids. After getting unpacked and settled in, I was relaxing in the family room when a flash of movement outside caught my attention. These three spent a solid 15 minutes just browsing around in the woods behind the cabin, and were frequent visitors the whole weekend.

One of my friends is about 5 days past her due date. She’s eager to get the baby out and it seems like everyone has some sort of remedy to induce labor. Most are hilarious. Today she is trying to eat a whole box of Kraft Mac and Cheese, smothered in A1 steak sauce, followed immediately by two medium sized pickles, and a desert of a tablespoon of peanut butter. Sounds absolutely disgusting. She’s trying it and says it’s gross. I’m finding this to be extremely funny.

Turning my AC off yesterday when I got home from my tournament for the first time in what seems like a month (I think I technically had it off for about 16 hours at some point a couple weeks ago). And I might get to keep it off almost all week. Wooooooo!

Not really a simple pleasure but could not think of anywhere else to put this.

Company that owns 7-11 is buying Speedway stores (formerly SuperAmerica). Hoping they bring slurpees back to MN and get Speedway back in shape. IMO Speedway is by far the worst chain of convenience stores in metro area. Kwik Trip is best (but not enough of them). Holiday is next best. Speedway is a VERY distant 3rd.

I know there are some Casey's around but not so much in the metro area (at least my part of the metro area)

7-11 - SA - Speedway - 7-11. Sounds about right.

They built a brand new Super America near my house that opened 2 years ago. It was SA for just a few months before it changed to Speedway. Now it looks like it will be changing again. That's some impressive turnover for a place that hasn't even been there 3 years yet.

Hopefully 7-11s in the U.S. will have speedier service than what I'm used to here.

Today was the first day we didn't run the A/C at least partially for roughly the past 90 days. Ugh.

I do think that Holiday has taken a step back since they changed ownership. They're still way better than Speedway but just not as good as the used to be. I wish there were more Kwik Trips around.

The Kwik Trips seems to be all northern suburbs, but really like them. Interested to see how 7-11 has done as I have mainly just been using Holiday at this point, but went to SA all the time before.

Yup. So far we've had asparagus, radishes, peas, green beans, red beets, and tomatoes. On deck is green peppers. My wife has put deer repellent on every other night and this year it's working. Made of rotten eggs.

Growing up we would have a meal of just sweetcorn - as many ears as you can eat, coated in butter and salt.
Most people have it as an accoutrement to the meal so my husband was shocked that we’d just sit down and mow through ears of corn as the main course!

We’ve had it back to back days now. Ironically today I tried making Elote for my first time. It was delicious.

My friend's dad was from LeSeur and was a big sweetcorn fan. When I was at their cabin a looong time ago he challenged me to a corn eating contest. I was done after 7 ears and he was laughing at me. I think he might have been a relative of Cowgirl.

One sad note; ten years ago I was in a serious Vespa accident. I basically have a mouthful of crowns and implants. I can’t really eat corn off the cob anymore, I have to cut it off. I’ve started to sauté it in a little olive oil and it is delicious. It tastes just like on the cob, but I sometimes miss that messy butter on my chin classic version.

Why not boil it on the cob and cut it off? The cob and The little white mini kernels (grits?) add so much flavor.

When I package corn for the winter I boil on the cob, cut kernels off, and then scrape the cob with the back of the knife to get the mini kernels. Tastes just like summer in the middle of winter.

Kwik Trip, then Holiday. Speedway if I have to in a pinch (since there is one rather close to me). However, the gaps between those stores is massive.

I am not sure this is a simple pleasure today, but I coached my 12 year old son for the last time in baseball tonight. It’s time for me to just be Dad. I was blessed to coach him for All Stars this year, even though we didn’t think we would have a season, much less All Stars. Well, we ended up playing Cal Ripken State (as opposed to Little League State) so the kids had to learn leading off, pick offs and play with longer bases. We played 7 games in the 4 weeks before State and we took 2nd place. That was pretty awesome!

Anyhow, it’s been an emotional day, lots of reflection on the people we have met, the changes from year to year and all the craziness that goes into it. I love the game of baseball and I hope my son does too now.

Kwik Trip is the gold standard. As if Super America actually evolved since 1990.
Within the city limits of Superior, WI (Pop < 30,000) there are seven (7) Kwik Trip gas station/store locations ☝️🤠

The Mankato/North Mankato area (Pop approx. 52,000) there are eight Kwik Trips here. Currently they are building a new larger one up by the MSU campus to replace the small "style" white Kwik Trip. There are three Casey's here as well.
