  67. 2020 Thursday B: As far as COVID-19 numbers go, communist China has changed their numbers somewhat.  Here are their current figures: 82,967 confirmed number of cases, 4,634 confirmed number of deaths, but 78,249 number of confirmed recoveries.   Sources in still-free Hong Kong report the number of cases to be well over one million, that the death toll approaches 750,000, with the number of recoveries being unclear.  Free Hong Kong!  Free Tibet!  Free Macau!  Free Taiwan via making them a separate nation once again with their own seat in the United Nations.  Enough is enough with indulging the Chinese Communist Party, let’s return to the Two-China Policy!  It is interesting to note that Beijing is now trying to crack down on Hong Kong’s independence while the rest of the world is fighting Wuhan’s biowarfare.  We shall see.

Author: Chef Murphy MacDougal, ACF-CWC, CCM

I began my career as a young chef in the kitchen back in 1975, earlier than that. I apprenticed underneath my father and spent six years working for him in his British-Irish restaurant in Fresno, California. I later moved to Frazier Park, California, and spent quite a few years working in the area and that is where I met Stinkbug. Anyhow, I am now working at a country club over on the coast near San Luis Obispo. Please note: this is my pen name and any photos of me are simply outdated photos adopted for maintaining my privacy. Above, you see the caricature created for me by Bakersfield street artist, the amazing Simone. We have gone this route because of increasing threats against the blog and its members.
