    Send them to Sentinal 1.
    Our waistline doesn’t need those HL.
    Zero problems wrt Blacks - Best Man at My wedding was Black Buddy of many Years. Just tire of the "Check the boxes" Casting - reality would have Shows with "Mix and Match" Characters, in a RANDOM manner. Same observation applies to Gays, Asians, First Nation, Handicapped, Age Mismatches, and so on. Thing is, in Advertising as Well, on TV, it is tiresome to see the artifice.

    I have a working theory, that they believe there is some magical, alchemical formula that will automatically produce some sort of utopia, HL. But because they've already rejected the one thing that IS magical and has the best chance of nurturing harmony (live & let live)... they keep trying and keep having to put out the flames of their failures.
    Wife makes Me suffer through Romantic Hallmark Programs, one aftter another... Hallmark is Casting Blacks as Pilots, Supervisors, Bosses, Leaders of Businesses in Every Show (albeit in secondary roles to the Romance Couple). Every Show.

    Additionally, Very Often, "Sidekicks" to Romantic Couples' individuals are Black. Best Men, Best Friend, ... Because it is almost every Show, it is just so tiresome, and so fake.

    Well my wife watches Dr. Pol about 20 hours a day. A man can only take watching a man shove his arm up a cow's rectum so many times.
    I'm often in another room watching something else nowdays when I have time to sit down.
    If I call Myself a "Blackguard", is it Cultural Appropriation, or is it Racist?
    Small Motor Mech today - resurrecting a Maruyama Weedwakker that needs a new Primer Bulb (Thanks to Ethanol), and a New Sparkplug for the Ryobi Motor Head.

    Did an hours worth last Saturday
    Set it down. Picked it up the next day and the recoil starter wouldn’t grab.
    SOB!
    Had to take it apart and the little flipper has just decided to be stuck.
    No reason. Not broke. Just lazy.

    Kodiak, a name of Pancake Mix, Breakfast Bread mixes, makes a Purple Syrup, Huckleberry, Serviceberry, Blueberry, and Raspberry included. Is a tasty sweet syrup that We are always finding New ways to use. We pour over Strawberries when Shortcakin, add to many Ice Cream creations, etc.

    I’m eating 89 cent generic frozen burritos at work these days. 🤣

    One day soon we shall all long for a gas station burrito. Or even a TVP burrito because that's gone to. I don't know if I want to live in a world without the bomb. I'm not certain I want to live in a world where the only burritos are tvp.
    Right now, "fresh" is coming from South/Central America, maybe in "Refrigerated" containers that are not cooled so much (saves fuel, IF they run at all). Plus longer transit time, maybe more handling/intermediate warehouse or cargo consolidator stops.
