What's your favorite food...that your family/housemates hate?

Mine is tuna casserole, like from the 1960's with noodles, tuna, and mushroom soup. Just the smell chases my family away, lol!

'I hate Florida!' How the coronavirus convinced one snowbird to fly back home

My thoughts exactly!

We get dozens of tipshere at NJ Advance Media, and during the coronaviruscrisis, most of them are pretty darn depressing. Death. Illness. Unemployment. These are difficult times, and the story ideas we receive from readers reflect that.Then, in the middle of all that darkness last week, came a tip that began like this:Im moving BACK TO JERSEY!! Yep. You read that right. Very hopefully in June. It means that much to me to get out of Florida. Moving here was the biggest mistake of my life!

Updated...Regarding racist twitter hashtags for COVID-19

Update: I'm still doing this search and report mission, but the occurance of the racist tags has tapered off somewhat. Not down to zero though, so I keep banging away at it.

Btw, Twitter notifies me when they agree with me...about 5% of the time. They don't tell me what they do with the account, though...whether is suspended or what.


I've been spending a bit of time every day searching for racist hashtags on twitter (you know the ones) and reporting them... for whatever good it may do. Yes, I have time on my hands 😏.

I've made an interesting observation about the use of these tags ... most people only started using them a few days ago. Go back in these people's history and they were previously using variations on #coronavirus or #COVID. My conclusion is that using the racist tags has been a concious choice by these people.

They must be called out on this, strongly and often!

I'm just starting to read "A Very Stable Genius" by Rucker and Leonning...

and before I've enen started I am tearing up because I read the quotes on the dust jacket. The last one on the page seemed so heartfelt and poinient, it just got to me.

Here's an excerpt:
"The disdain he show for our country's foundation and its principles. The disregard he has for right and wrong. Your first clenches. Your teeth grate. ...I swore to the constitution. I didn't swear an oath to this jackass."

I was reading it aloud to my daughter and almost couldn't get through it... it triggered something in me and I choked up. I think I must the identify strongly with the raw frustration and injustice expressed.
