Pope Francis Implies That COVID-19 Is God’s Fault & God’s Responsibility. Say ‘Amen’ To That.

Let’s get this STRAIGHT & RIGHT. No beating around the bush.

WE HAVE NOT BEATEN COVID-19 YET BECAUSE GOD HASN’T GOTTEN AROUND TO DOING IT?

Will be beaten by God’s Love“.

It is NOT beaten yet — so God’s fault?

I will buy that. I blame God. I know God can stop it whenever he sees fit.

So, I agree with the Pope.

What do YOU think?

I am surprised Trump hasn’t used this defense.

Anthony Fauci Vindicates My Continuing Reluctance To Eat Out At Restaurants.

by Anura Guruge


Click to access ‘MarketWatch.com’ article.


WOW. This made me feel better — & vindicated.

We haven’t eaten out at a restaurant since about March 12, 2020. Last time we got takeout was March 22 — somebody’s 14th birthday.

I really MISS eating out & takeout. I miss Chinese. I typically eat Chinese, from a restaurant, twice a month.

This is the longest, by far, I have ever been, in my whole life from eating at a restaurant.

I just don’t get a good feeling.

Glad that the doctor is backing me up.

“Organically Moo’ed” Food Truck Now In Alton, On Route 28.

Current Menu
— Liable To CHANGE At Short-Notice.


It was an unmitigated delight to see this cheery Food Truck pop-up on the corner of ‘our’ road & Route 28. Let me be precise, the corner of ‘Prospect Mountain Road‘ & Route 28, by the YMCA camp.

They have bought the large grey building on that corner. There used to be vehicles & truck bits in the parking lot — presumably for sale. I gather it used to a restaurant & bar way back. I have been here 13-years & the eatery business precedes I.

But, it has all changed for the good. Genevieve Michaud (from Barnstead) has bought the property & will open it up as a CAFE when the pandemic is ‘history’. That will be cool. To have a nice cafe at the end of our road — & I can already tell that it will be ‘nice’.

In the interim, Genevieve has a delightful Food Truck out there. This is all good. I am so pleased.

In marked contrast to the McDonald’s in Alton (as I pointed out (& they have ACKNOWLEDGED), the Food Truck is TOTALLY CONTACTLESS. I like that. That is how it should be.

The Food Truck (which will morph into the Cafe) is on one of my walking/running routes. So, I will be going by it, on foot, at least once a week. Will I stop & get a coffee? That is the question. That will disrupt my sacrosanct routine & discipline. Will she EVER be able to tempt me to have some of her ‘Apple Pie Bread Pudding‘? Yes, her name has ‘Eve‘ in it, BUT I know, for a fact, that I have better discipline than Adam! SMILE.

Well, now you know where the Food Truck is. You even have the menu. Contactless takeout. ALL GOOD.

I wish them all the best.

McDonald’s, COVID-19 & Much Handled CREDIT CARDS — It Is NOT Hygenic!

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE.


I had, as I said in these two posts, stopped doing TAKE OUT during COVID-19 — after having got some, during the early days, on March 22nd (which happened to be somebody’s birthday).

Well, it was Maya’s 9th birthday yesterday, and kind of against my will, we ended up going to the Alton (NH) McDonald’s — because that is the tradition (and I had already established that we were just getting cheeseburgers for the DOGS & nothing for us).

I, being a Brit, NEVER use drive-throughs! Do not like them. Actually hate them. I like to go in an order & of late I can use the self-serve kiosk with aplomb.

Well, I was forced to use the bloody drive-through. NEVER AGAIN — and definitely not during COVID.

They do NOT have outside credit card readers. YIKES.

So, I have to hand my card over to an UNGLOVED kid.

Then get it back. No spraying.

Not funny.

This is NUTS.

Plus his mask did NOT cover his nose.

This is CRAZY.

Why I Am So Glad I Stopped Having Restaurant TAKEOUT During Coronavirus COVID-19 ‘Stay-At-Home’.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE.

From my Facebook (timeline). You can SEE the NAME. 


Click to access my April 2, 2020 post.


They might be within CDC Code.

Doesn’t matter. Made I feel queasy and OUTSIDE of this virus I have never really worried too much about how food got prepared — coming from a third-world country and having bummed around quite a few other third-world countries.

This just did NOT sit well with I.

SADDEST THING. The SUPREME IRONY.

They were preparing this for ER personnel at the local hospital.

People taking care of other people!

If one person in ER gets it …

Ahhhhhh.

This has to be happening all over the place.

YIKES.

Pope Francis In An Empty St. Peter’s For Easter 2020 — Is It ‘Shameless’ Or An Admission Of Defeat?

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE.


Click image to access my post.


WOW.

He openly asked God to intervene. That was over 3-weeks ago.

Tens of thousands have died.

He must know that he failed.

He must know that he has much say with God as I do — and I might even contend that I have a better relationship with God since he knows I am, totally 100% honest, no nonsense.

The Pope has failed.

Look at the picture. He is slumped to a side.

That he dropped his ‘Vicar of Christ‘ title is NO COINCIDENCE.

He knows he is NOT the ‘Vicar of Christ‘.

He know that he has been an imposter.

I Am NOT Going To Do Restaurant TAKEOUT During The ‘Stay-At-Home’; I Did, But NO More.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE.


I am SORRY. But, this has been bothering I.

Yes, we ordered a LOT of takeout, recently — Sunday, March 22, to be exact — and we enjoyed it for the next 3-days. It was good. It was from our favorite restaurant.

Some of YOU know that I am friends with AT LEAST 4 restaurant OWNERS — and countless folks that work at restaurants.

I sure want to help them and support them.

But, ordering and eating takeout seems counter-intuitive.

Yes, I checked the online reports that claim it is SAFE.

That Sunday we got takeout we ate it — OUTSIDE — WITHOUT first microwaving it. That was a mistake.

If you do get takeout MICROWAVE it — ZP IT GOOD — for a few minutes.

Just imagine. Somebody, asymptomatic, coughs on YOUR takeout as they are packing it.

Yes, microwaving will help. Yes, that will kill the virus (I am sure).

OK. I checked with a DOCTOR. Honest. I did. I do have cousins (who still speak to I) who are doctors. SMILE.

She, who lives in the US, tells me that she will NOT get takeout. That is good enough for I.

I had been thinking about Easter, April 12, 2020.

Where to get takeout.

Now … NO.

SMILE.

Sorry.

Pope Asks God To Stop The Virus (i.e., COVID-19) — So Everything Is Going To Be A-OK. Rejoice!

Stop! STOP!

It is all going to be A-OK.

The popeVicar of Christ & the Primate of Italy — has finally decided that he is going to ask God to stop this.

About bloody time — wouldn’t you say?

What was he waiting for? Christmas?

I am NOT even going to ask why God needs to be asked.

Wasn’t God AWARE?

Possible. Did God too think it was a hoax?

All this stuff with God is very confusing to I.

Christians tell me, repeatedly, that God does NOT micromanage and that God gave ‘us’ free will. Wel …

So, why hasn’t it stopped already?

Shouldn’t the pope have asked for God to cure those stricken as well.

I am going to start counting days to see how long it takes God to take action.

Join me.

But, STOP.

Everything is going to be A-OK.

Rejoice.

Maine Restaurants/Bars Still Open For St. Patrick’s Day Partying — COVID-19 Be Damned.

by Anura Guruge



OPEN — for now.
I just called (11:30am).

“Warren’s Lobster House”, Kittery, Maine — OPEN.

 


I just checked. I just called.

Occurred to me last night that I had heard NOTHING about restaurant/bar closures in Maine.

Yes, we are closed — and I knew that was coming.

Massachusetts, of course, was one of the firsts to close …

Maine is really just across the border from MA — just a quick 12-minutes drive through NH.

Kittery & York, on the border, has some great places to eat and be merry.

So, let the partying begin.

I might have to go to Maine just to show my support and solidarity.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day.
