In Covidland, riding public transit has been an experience. At first it was a hot mess, but the T sensed up and realized they had to start to control crowds. One of the buses I ride is a very busy route (well all of the buses through my town are high ridership regardless), and the crowds in non-covid times are just insane. Lots of pushing N shoving. Its annoying.
But since the T is trying to limit crowding, they’ve been far more flexible with adding buses to avoid crowds. Unfortunately, it causes lines like this:
Talk about targeted ads….. I got this email from the Boston Globe today. I feel attacked
I mean really Boston Globe?
Going to leave this here for prosperity.
This is what was posted today from the White House account. The official account that is paid for by the tax payers. Donald Trump wanted to spew some racist BS and knew his account would be flagged so he did it from the White House account.

Interesting article but most I knew already from talking to local friends. They are petrified of what is to come. And there’s little they can do to stop it. I fear for many of my friends in Ptown now. (more…)

In Keeping with the Covid “19” them from yesterday… today I decided to finally try out the donut recipe from the cookbook my mom used to use.
The book is “The Country Fair Cookbook: Every Recipe is a Blue Ribbon Winner” Edited by Elise W Manning, Farm Journal Food Editor . (Amazon purchase link). Its one of those many mass produced “book club” magazine cookbooks that were everywhere at that time. But damn it has some good (fattening) recipes in it.
