tablet woes

Ok, the tablet isn’t so bad. Just slow and unwieldy.  Cant wait for new pc.

I spent several days painting and cleaning. Got that office fresh and spotless.

Just for a change of pace I made the IKEA meatballs recipe tonight. Needs more spice. Needs a lot more sauce. Their recipe uses a huge roux, enough to make half a gallon of gravy. And then you simmer it until it turns into tar. Phoney. I added double the amount of liquid and it came out just right. Figures that IKEA would have an error in the instructions. Next time I’ll try a real swedish meatball recipe.

The usual SSDD crap in the news. This Daily Briefing showing up in my inbox from the NYT is informative but very biased. No kidding right?

old mill fresh flour

Flour Power

I haven’t figured out how to copy paste on this android device yet, so no text quotes.

There is a flour shortage in England too. Everybody stuck at home has decided to start baking. So flour is very hard to find in stores right now. It turns out that hardly 5% of all the flour milled goes to retail. Nearly all of it goes to commercial bakers, in huge amounts. Your local bakery probably buys flour a ton or more at a time. Industrial bakers buy it by the train load. Literally; it comes bulk in tanker cars. Most big mills are not set up to bag it any smaller than a 50lb sack.

The Sturminster Newton mill in Dorset England is responding to local needs. For many years they have operated as a museum, grinding perhaps a ton of flour for the tourists per year. Now they’re grinding that much in a day or two.

What makes this interesting is that the mill is ancient. There has been a water wheel powered mill on this site since the Dark Ages. 1016 or earlier. The place was already old when it was listed in the Doomsday Book. That’s William the Conqueror era. 1086-ish. Granted, the current mill was recently rebuilt in 1650, which is practically new in Olde English terms. Is it stone ground? Yes. No pictures from inside in the news story.

Pretty cool.

here’s a link to the mill

and a link to the news story

Links made by hand the old fashioned way. Hope they work. I want my mouse!!

New PC on the way

After most of an hour on the phone with New Delhi tech support, we concluded that my PC was on the verge of death. It only runs for 3 or 4 minutes at a time before instant death, and half that time I’m spending trying to get the wifi to work. Forget this. So I optioned out a totally killer machine, and then realized that I have no use for all that. I’m not a gamer. I don’t do any hard core large scale number crunching. So why buy it? The dying PC was red hot when new, but the world caught up. I never used a tenth it’s power.

So I bought basic PC, i5 CPU and more memory than the old one. And I can mount my current hard drive in it as a secondary,so I don’t have to transfer any data or lose any of my programs. I hope.

This will be my 4th Dell machine. Bought my first back in 1988. My company bought me the next one in 2001. I got this one in 2013. 3 computers, 22 years.  Seems pretty good to me.

It ought to be here in a week or less. Woo hoo. Until then I have to blog via my tablet. Guess I’d better find the keyboard case it has that I never use. It’s just easier.

wobbly but working for now

I seem to have internet on the PC again. Sort of. And the computer seems to be stable. Sort of.  Sometimes it stops dead in it’s tracks, so I unplug it, wait a bit, and try again. Sometimes it runs, sometimes it doesn’t. Sometimes the WiFi works just fine, other times I have to run the Windows WiFi status troubleshooter.

There seems to be some kind of relationship between the WiFi functionality and the freshness of the boot. As if some value needed to ID the WiFi isn’t lasting in memory. Failing memory chip? Thermal short? I don’t know.

But for a little while at least I have a computer again. So I can check my email and hit the news sites with ease. It’s just so much easier to do this with a full size keyboard and a nice big screen.

One the hard way

Looks like the motherboard mounted wifi on my PC is shot. So this is a post from my tablet.

Whoop whoop, I made bread. 6 parts bread flour, 2 parts all purpose flour, 1 part whole wheat, 1 part rye. 75% hydration, 2.5% salt, 3 parts sourdough starter, and a measure of yeast. Thing rose like a missile. Ready to bake in under 90 minutes.


I went to the grocery store at 7am, first in the door. Managed to find a bag of bread flour. Gold Medal, not King Arthur, but better than no flour at all.

What He Said

A Balance Point Is Also A Tipping Point

In a market economy, every job is essential. And every job is certainly essential to the person who depends on it for their livelihood. In the midst of a pandemic it’s sensible to ban mass gatherings of hundreds and thousands of people. But local governments are now imposing restrictions that make little sense. Parks and golf courses have been closed. The imposition of evening curfews is baffling. Every government official with totalitarian instincts now has the moral justification to impose arbitrary and senseless curtailments on freedom of movement and association.

Ironically, in the midst of a supposed epidemic, hospitals all over the nation are closing down for a lack of patients. Why? Because government officials ordered them to cancel all elective medical procedures so they could be prepared to receive a crush of Covid-19 patients that never arrived. In the last four weeks, we’ve lost 22 million jobs. In our panic over the Covid-19 pandemic, we seem to have forgotten that a robust economy supports health care, education, fire and police protection, and the construction and maintenance of critical infrastructure that maintains human civilization. The toll from the artificial induction of poverty may ultimately exceed lives lost to the disease.

In 2011, researchers at Columbia University found that poverty contributes to 133,000 premature deaths annually in the US. Our stop-gap solution, massive government spending, is no panacea. Prosperity comes from production, not spending, borrowing, and taxing. If we don’t reverse course in a matter of days, we’re on our way to national suicide.


Related: Expect the oil futures market to be suspended for now. Expect massive layoffs in the entire petroleum / LP industry. Expect diminished power production at many utility companies that have a significant base of industrial and commercial customers. With no economy, there is much less demand for energy in all forms. Heating oil, gasoline, liquid natural gas, propane, even electricity.

LA Mayor Urges People To Rat Out Neighbors

What a Nazi

Everybody knows that Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti sees to it that his city doesn’t enforce federal immigration laws, and he’s proud of it:

Regardless of your immigration status, I want every Angeleno to know your city is on your side. Here in Los Angeles, our police department does not coordinate with ICE or participate in immigration enforcement.

Know your rights:

— MayorOfLA (@MayorOfLA) February 15, 2020

But that defense of illegal behavior won’t extend to citizens trying to make a living against direct public orders, as the mayor proved by promoting a website for anybody who wants to snitch:

To protect our communities, non-essential businesses must remain closed during our Safer at Home emergency order. To report non-essential businesses that are operating illegally, visit:

Bugging Out

Hey, remember Africa? All those locusts eating everything, spreading across the Red Sea, all the way to the edge of China? And that Chinese fungus that was supposed to stop them. Or those 100,000 hungry ducks. Yeah, right.

At least it isn’t a coronavirus post.

New thing learned today: immature locusts that can’t yet fly are called hoppers.

Locusts, Round Two: 20x more bugs, just as hungry


The little chompers are breeding like mad all over, over there. There could be 400 times as many of them by June.

KAMPALA, Uganda – Weeks before the coronavirus spread through much of the world, parts of Africa were already threatened by another kind of plague, the biggest locust outbreak some countries had seen in 70 years.

Now the second wave of the voracious insects, some 20 times the size of the first, is arriving. Billions of the young desert locusts are winging in from breeding grounds in Somalia in search of fresh vegetation springing up with seasonal rains.

Millions of already vulnerable people are at risk. And as they gather to try to combat the locusts, often in vain, they risk spreading the virus — a topic that comes a distant second for many in rural areas.

It is the locusts that “everyone is talking about,” said Yoweri Aboket, a farmer in Uganda. “Once they land in your garden they do total destruction. Some people will even tell you that the locusts are more destructive than the coronavirus. There are even some who don’t believe that the virus will reach here.”

Some farmers in Abokat’s village near the Kenyan border bang metal pans, whistle or throw stones to try to drive the locusts away. But mostly they watch in frustration, largely barred by a coronavirus lockdown from gathering outside their homes.

Aww crap, it is a coronavirus post. EVERYTHING is a coronavirus post.

Ok, this place stays on topic.

Taken in it’s entirety from Locust Watch, along with the above map. It’s part of the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization:

Desert Locust situation update 8 April 2020

Swarm increase expected in East Africa

Widespread rains that fell in late March could allow a dramatic increase in locust numbers in East Africa, eastern Yemen and southern Iran in the coming months.

The current situation in East Africa remains extremely alarming as hopper bands and an increasing number of new swarms form in northern and central Kenya, southern Ethiopia and Somalia. This represents an unprecedented threat to food security and livelihoods because it coincides with the beginning of the long rains and the planting season. Although ground and aerial control operations are in progress, widespread rains that fell in late March will allow the new swarms to mostly remain, mature and lay eggs while a few swarms could move from Kenya to Uganda, South Sudan and Ethiopia. During May, the eggs will hatch into hopper bands that will form new swarms in late June and July, which coincides with the start of the harvest.
● KENYA. Swarms appear to be increasing in size in some central and northern areas with some moving westwards.
● ETHIOPIA. A large swarm was reported in the south (SNNPR) today.
● UGANDA. Several immature and maturing swarms appeared in the northeast (Katakwi, Amuria, Agago districts) on 5-7 April. The military carried out control operations. Additional swarms may appear in these areas from Kenya and move towards the northwest.

Spring breeding is underway. The situation in Yemen continues to deteriorate.
● YEMEN. An immature swarm was seen on the coast at the Oman border and another one north of Aden, and adults are laying on the eastern plateau.
● SAUDI ARABIA. More hatching and early instar bands form near the Persian Gulf where control operations continue.
● OMAN. Control underway against hopper and adult groups in the north. A few immature adult groups seen in the south.

Spring breeding is underway. The situation in Iran is becoming increasingly worrisome.
● IRAN. An increasing number of hopper bands are forming along the southern coast from earlier swarm laying.
● PAKISTAN. Control underway against hopper groups in Baluchistan, Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

Beyond Stupid, Beyond TDS. Actual Evil

Ohio Rep: Charge Trump “Crimes Against Humanity” For Promoting HCQ + Z-Pack

Can’t spell pandemic without “dem” “panic”.
So fan the flames of fear 24-7, and use everything as a political weapon because OrangeManBad. And play can-you-top-this with both the batshit crazy ideas and the marching jackboots of excessive governmental power.

A Democratic state representative in Ohio said she “can’t take it anymore” and vowed to refer President Trump to the International Criminal Court for “crimes against humanity” over Trump’s promotion of a drug that has not been conclusively proven to fight the coronavirus.

State Rep. Tavia Galonski tweeted Sunday after President Trump spoke about hydroxychloroquine at his daily press briefing. The drug, normally used to treat malaria, is one of several that the president has pointed to as showing promise in the fight against COVID-19, but its effectiveness has been a subject of debate.

And do you know why this has been a subject of debate? Because President Trump suggested it. At which point every TDS sufferer in the world started screaming about how terrible, worthless, and dangerous it is. And all the stick-in-the-mud Deep Staters and change-resistant process addicts in the medical world chimed right in. Aided by the DemMSM, who cannot mention the treatment without pimping up how “risky” it is.

It does not matter to them at all that the rest of the world is using this approach and finding moderate or better levels of success. It does not matter that hundreds of millions of people have taken chloroquine, often for decades each, for more than 70 years with almost no significant side effects or negative reactions. Or that doctors have been handing out azithromycin, aka Z-Pack, for more than 20 years, also with negligible side effect. So even if this combo is mostly ineffective it will be at least innocuous.  But every report from everywhere about how it does actually work, and quite well thank you, is dismissed out of hand as “merely anecdotal” or “at best subjective” because Official Medicine hasn’t done a 10 year long multi-part billion dollar study. Field data from all over the work doesn’t count. Because they are all frightened little bunnies who can only follow process and have no ability to think on their own or take the slightest chance on something new. Because malpractice?

“I can’t take it anymore. I’ve been to The Hague. I’m making a referral for crimes against humanity tomorrow,” Galonski said. “Today’s press conference was the last straw. I know the need for a prosecution referral when I see one.”

The Hague is the site of the International Criminal Court (ICC), which boasts 123 state parties. The United States is not one of them. Only member states or non-members who accept the ICC’s jurisdiction can make referrals. Alternatively, the United Nations Security Council can also refer a matter for investigation.

“Crimes against humanity” is a category of offense that the ICC handles. The court provides a list of crimes that fall under this, including murder, extermination, enslavement, torture, and “other inhumane acts of a similar character intentionally causing great suffering or serious bodily or mental injury.”

Fox News asked Rep. Galonski if there is a specific crime she is accusing Trump of committing, and how she plans on pursuing charges given the United States’ non-member status. She did not immediately respond.

Galonski is not the only one to question Trump’s promotion of hydroxychloroquine, given that the FDA has not approved it—or any other drugs—specifically for treating COVID-19.

See? Even FoxNews can’t resist playing the Danger! Danger! Danger! card. No, the FDA has not approved it for this specifically. But they have approved it for this “off label”. Do you want to wait a decade, and possibly be long dead from COVID, or would you be willing to take an infinitesimal risk that just might save your life?

Hey, how about we have DOJ or Congress pass a quick rule that exempts doctors and hospitals from malpractice for using this - as specified by international dosage regimens - as an Off Label approach. Hell yeah. Give me HCQ, Z-Pack, Zinc, and Vitamins C, D, and the B complexes.

Dr. Antony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told CBS’ “Face the Nation” that the data is “at best suggestive.”

Fauci said he does not think “we could definitely say it works,” noting that in some cases there has been “no effect,” and in others it may have been effective.

I am beyond tired of the lies and the dirty politics and the finger pointing. Not one of these flaming lunatics understands what Stand Together or National Emergency means. I’m past the point of logical discourse and response, not that logical discourse with these people was ever even possible in the first place. They are traitors, and they are evil. As I’ve written for years, if you aren’t one of them they want you dead. And now is there big chance. And maybe a huge-ass part of this national shut-down, this lock down, this deliberate economic suicide, is all to Get Trump. More and more I believe that every damn day.

UPDATE: and here’s one more easily dismissable bit of anecdote:

A Los Angeles doctor said he is seeing significant success in prescribing the malaria drug hydroxychloroquine in combination with zinc to treat patients with severe symptoms of COVID-19.

Hydroxychloroquine has been touted as a possible treatment for COVID-19 by President Trump among others, but it remains controversial as some experts believe it is unproven and may not be effective.

The drug has long been used for treatment of malaria and conditions such as lupus and arthritis but is not technically approved by the FDA for COVID-19. The agency, however, is encouraging trials and has provided limited emergency authorization for its use to treat COVID-19 patients.

Dr. Anthony Cardillo said he has seen very promising results when prescribing hydroxychloroquine in combination with zinc for the most severely-ill COVID-19 patients.

“Every patient I’ve prescribed it to has been very, very ill and within 8 to 12 hours, they were basically symptom-free,” Cardillo told Eyewitness News. “So clinically I am seeing a resolution.”

Cardillo is the CEO of Mend Urgent Care, which has locations in Sherman Oaks, Van Nuys and Burbank.

He said he has found it only works if combined with zinc. The drug, he said, opens a channel for the zinc to enter the cell and block virus replication.

He added that the drug should not be prescribed for those who are presenting only mild symptoms, as there are concerns about shortages for patients with other conditions who need to take the drug on a regular basis.

Note that: it isn’t that this won’t work as a prophylactic or for low level cases, it’s just that there might not be enough of it to go around. For now. We could use another 4 billion pills please.

PS: phrase du jour: analysis paralysis. We’re seeing this 24-7 from the talking heads who can’t put TDS or “that’s how we’ve always done things” behind them.

PPS: I won’t call it anti-anecdotal evidence
, but HCQ trials and off label usage has been going on in this country for a couple of weeks now, to fight a virus that has a 14 day incubation period.
Don’t you think by now, that if this approach didn’t work, the enemy media would be screaming from the rafters how Tump Is Killing Us All?  You know they would. And yet, there’s total silence about this other than the “could be dangerous” talking heads. Which pretty much proves it works.

I’m tired of beating this dead horse even further into the ground. But this damn zombie pony won’t just lie there, and keeps getting up every hour or so.

Let Him Catch Hell

I’m not the one who drives the train
Nor even rings the bell
But if that train should jump the tracks
It’s me who catches Hell.

Lunatic Casey Jones Tries To Sink Hospital Ship With Locomotive

SAN PEDRO, LOS ANGELES (KABC)—An engineer deliberately ran a train off the tracks at high speed near the Port of Los Angeles in an attempt to crash into and damage the USNS Mercy hospital ship, prosecutors say.

The Pacific Harbor Line train derailed Tuesday, running through the end of the track and crashing through barriers, finally coming to rest about 250 yards from the docked naval ship.

Federal prosecutors allege train engineer Eduardo Moreno, 44, of San Pedro intended to hit the ship, saying he thought it was “suspicious” and did not believe “the ship is what they say it’s for.’”

The train crashed into a concrete barrier at the end of the track, smashed through a steel barrier and a chain-link fence, slid through one parking lot and then a second lot filled with gravel and hit a second chain-link fence. It came to rest after passing under a ramp leading to the Vincent Thomas Bridge. The train remained in that position Wednesday.

No one was injured in the derailment, but the train leaked fuel that required a hazmat response.

The U.S. Navy hospital ship Mercy received its first patients Sunday after docking at the Port of Los Angeles.

Authorities say Moreno admitted to crashing the train intentionally, but said he did not plan in out in advance. It is believed that he acted alone.

He allegedly made statements to a CHP officer that included “You only get this chance once. The whole world is watching. I had to. People don’t know what’s going on here. Now they will.”

Officials say video from inside the train’s cab shows Moreno holding a lighted flare during the incident.

Moreno has been charged with one count of train wrecking, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office. The charge carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in federal prison.

To be an honest journalist, it wasn’t the whole train, just the locomotive. And it didn’t actually derail as much as it went off the end of the in a siding, knocking down the stop barrier, a steel highway barrier, some concrete lane divider barriers, and a couple hundred yards of pavement. The guy may be loco, but his idea had merit; it was flat, open, and paved the whole way from the siding to the ship. Except the pavement wasn’t made to support 200 tons of engine on sharp edged wheels. It dug in and eventually came to a stop. Plus the stern of the hospital ship wasn’t quite up against the dock, so the choo-choo would have had to swim the gap. And choo-choos are the worst swimmers out there.

I’d tell you how much this particular locomotive weighs, but I’m a bridge spotter not a train spotter, so I don’t know my engines. Looks pretty damn big to me though.

Send this lunatic to the the rubber room for 100 years.

Out Of Time

Yeah I know, it’s quarter to one in the morning. We both should be asleep by now, for a couple hours at least. But it’s not like we have to get up in the morning. We’ve kind of lost contact with time. It’s Monday now, I know that. But we’ll get up when we get up, and snoodle around the house all day doing whatever. More cleaning, more going through old clothes. Maybe make a bread? Meh, we managed to buy a regular loaf the other day so we’re set. Plenty of food in the house so we don’t have to go to the grocery store. Or the gas station. Or anywhere.

She’s working on her closet. Really going through all of it. She found her first bowling ball, a 10lb Power Groove. What a POS. It moved in with us, even though it was long out of use even then. She’s throwing a 13 pounder these days. Someday we hope to bowl again. When life is allowed to restart. But not today. Or this week. Probably not even this month. THIS SUCKS.

Sanitized For Your Protection

I did my weekly cleaning down in SP today. I’m a week late, but the place is closed like everything else. I figure I’d give any virus crap an extra week to die.

Then I went over the entire office with D-128. I used a full half gallon in my little sprayer, extra strength. Every hard surface. And my usual vacuuming and mopping. I was there three times longer than usual, but the place is as spotless and as sanitized as I can make it. Too bad they don’t have a carpet steaming machine or I would have used that too. So if, or when, the place ever opens again, it’s good to go. Driving down there, the highways were nearly empty. That office is in a large shopping center. Empty, except for a few rare people getting take out from the restaurants. It feels weird.

So I’m furloughed until they open again. What can you do?

At least OrangeManBad didn’t quarantine the whole NY/NJ metro area. Yet. AFAIK. And no new edicts from our commie governor “Red” Murphy either. Crossing my fingers.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.
