Is this happening elsewhere in the nation?

while we're distracted by this attack on the Capitol?

DeWine signs 'stand your ground' legislation into law

https://www.10tv.com/article/news/politics/dewine-signs-stand-your-ground-gun-law/530-6bffc7b6-a08a-4aaf-bab0-1f8f24f02f38

Ohio becomes the 36th state to no longer require people to retreat before they can justifiably hurt or kill someone with a gun in self-defense. [snip] ped all the rest.


=============================================================
Claims he's disappointed legislation did not include better vetting for criminal possession of guns...GOP claims a lot of things...SMH.

My SIL's father passed unexpectedly the evening of Dec 10

in a Central American country where he had built a retirement home, while his wife, a naturalized American citizen and SIL's mother, was visiting her newborn grand-daughter in CoVid-ridden CA for the first time. Pretty sure she wasn't at all displeased to be locked down there helping out the new mom and dad, but now....they'd been married 48 years.

She was able to fly back to their retirement home yesterday on hastily made arrangements. He will be buried there, not only by choice but also quickly by CoVid protocol necessity, where he was born, and I will attend a virtual funeral today. I feel so very lucky to have met him several times in the 24 years my daughter's been married to her 1st son. He was a generous and stubbornly happy and passionate man who did a fine job raising my daughter's husband in the Bay area. He told stories of hanging with Carlos Santana in his younger years and I have to believe that was true. My heart goes out to so many close relatives and friends separated by so many miles as I check in to his virtual church funeral later this afternoon.

Does anyone make their own yogurt?

I did it once long ago; now trying the InstaPot method with plain Greek God starter. The mix is incubating until 9PM. Will I be able to tell immediately if the "mash" needs to be drained of whey? How long will it need to drain? If the draining is required, will a coffee filter serve. Not expecting to turn in early. Finally placing some blackberries at the bottom of 1/2 pt jars before refrigerating. Love the stuff, but it doesn't go far when you have to share it with the doggies, LOL!

Sound right? Open to all tips and/or favorite flavorings, toppings, etc...

DeWine to give Wednesday evening address as Ohio is at 'critical stage' battling COVID-19

https://www.10tv.com/article/news/health/coronavirus/ohio-mike-dewine-update-on-coronavirus/530-c06152bf-ed57-425e-9b00-8b86c3873c78

Going prime time, huh Doofus? Is afternoon listening to your babble down, sir? Sad that he and Alton had such a good start...the behavior of his little "free will of good Ohioans"' experiment got Trumped by his MAGAT's "right" to spread it all around.

Then there's, "if we go back to Red Level," we'll return from hybrid to e-learning only - yeah, that hasn't happened either!
