Considering your choice of music, I think so too.

It could be worse. I could be playing Kate Bush or God forbid, Crowded House.

We escaped to Northern Sonoma County (Fort Ross/Salt Point) yesterday for three nights. Probably seems crazy with the situation but we're not in a big hotel and this place that only has about fifteen units in groups of four or five spread over the property only has us and one other guest. We did eat in a restaurant a mile away last night but the patronage was light, about eight tables and the tables were separated by at least six feet. We are eating in our room the next three days as we have a Weber grill and we brought plenty of food (halibut tonight, pork chops tomorrow). This is a very remote part of this coast even in the summer relative to the area so it will be even more devoid of beachcombers this week. We'll be heading home on Thursday and back to city madness. Until then we are enjoying being at the ocean for a change.

Local supermarkets are finally limiting the amounts of products such as hand soap and toilet paper that you can purchase at one time. Also, one store has marked their floor with silver tape and has written that you should "stand here" so that people aren't standing on lines invading the "safe" space of others.

Soup was made. Lasagne was also made with no pasta.

Continuing the (no) pasta theme, 5 year old penne pasta from the Co-op cooks and tastes just fine.
I'll probably regret writing this.

The recipe is a veggie lasagne. Thinly sliced aubergine replaces the pasta. The filing is ricotta/mozarella/parmesan/egg mixture and tomatoes with garlic and pepper flakes.

Great humorless lasagna recipe. :)

K-Paul's in New Orleans had/has a deli above the restaurant that was/is open for lunch. I used to go there often to pick up lunch and often chatted with Paul when he was around. He recommended his "Lasagna Po-boy" which was a po-boy with all the ingredients of lasagna except for the pasta. It was great but very spicy.

The Deli was a great place. At some point, it was closed and then reopened.

My local German sausage maker had a fire while we were at the coast last week which caused $50K worth of damage. They were already having a little trouble despite being one of the best places in Northern California for bacon, sausage, etc. Between the fire and Covid 19 this probably spells the end though I hope to be proven wrong. :cry:

The new (since my uncle's passing at 94 years in Jan.) head of the paternal side of my family, my eldest cousin, is now marshalling the troops on FaceBook over several time zones and continents. It's a lovely respite to hear a family FB ping when I'm doing what I need to on line.

I just made up a knock knock joke.

Knock knock.
Who's there?
Butternut.
Butternut who?
You butternut come home drunk agin, you rascal!

And while I'm on the subject, last week in the park upon seeing a beech tree (and learning it was a beech tree) my wife stumbled upon this tongue twister. Say this three times fast.

Beech bark birch bark.

I ordered Marmite and decaf tea from Amazon because the shop I normally buy them from is about ten blocks from my house and I'm scared I'll get fined by the police for walking too far from my home.

It does happen here.

Marmite is pretty hard to get hold of where I shop so I'm on the vastly inferior Vegemite.

We paid $14 for a bottle of HP sauce via Amazon because we didn't want to go to the one place in Austin that sells it.
