CCC. 2018 Monday: Due to the migrant and refugee crisis overwhelming Europe, the World Health Organization reports that measles cases across the continent are at an all-time high what with 41,000 infected and at least thirty-seven dead in the first six months of the year. Close the borders! Meanwhile, the communist government destroying Venezuela announces the creation of its very own currency (worthless, of course), the “Bolivar Soberano,” in the hope the nation can somehow stop hyperinflation eating it alive.

Tammy Duckworth, D-IL, and Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, and then- as far as we know- “Pro-China Joe” Biden will give his somnambulant speech.  Hopefully, he will not get up there and blow it by going blank with drool spilling off his chin.  Oh, a feeling of exhilaration fills the hearts of the Democratic-Socialists with their pick- don’t you know the American people are ‘going to have to run to keep up with Mr. Biden’ if he somehow steals the November Election?
  60. 2020 Thursday C: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 22,515,213 confirmed cases, +296,772, 789,825, confirmed deaths, +6,942, and 14,381,048 confirmed recoveries, +224,510.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 5,506,929 confirmed cases, -98,929 from yesterday’s reporting, 172,416 confirmed deaths (same as yesterday), -2,547 from, yesterday’s reporting, and 2,852,221 confirmed recoveries, +82,527.  Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 644,751 confirmed cases, 11,686 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 5,609 confirmed cases, forty-two confirmed deaths, and 1,977 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 69,166 confirmed cases, 1,832 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: North Dakota- currently, they have 8,782 confirmed cases, 128 confirmed deaths, and 7,485 confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Doug Burgum!  (Note: it is always interesting when the statistics are ‘rearranged,’ someone either did not compile the exact day’s numbers or politicians re-jigger them thinking NO one is paying attention; we always pay attention).
  61. 2020 Thursday D: Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 27,739.73, UP 46.85 points (+0.17%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  11,264.95, UP 118.49 points (+1.06%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,385.51, UP 10.66 points (+0.32%).  Price of GOLD: $1,957.40 per troy oz., +10.90 (+0.56%).  Here is the price of SILVER: $27.49 per troy oz., +0.343 (+1.26%).  Price of PLATINUM: $931.60 per troy oz., +4.70 (+0.51%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $2.99 per #, +0.02 (+0.67%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $42.81, -0.01 (-0.67%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.91 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.84 euros.  Meanwhile, unemployment last week rose to 1.1 million new claims for benefits after two straight weeks of decline; however, the numbers of unemployed dropped from 15.2 million to 14.8 million Americans thanks to the Xi Jinping Bat Flu. 
  62. 2020 Thursday E: Hardcore critic of Russia’s Vladimir Putin, Alexi Navalny, found himself in the hospital in a coma after sickening the previous day.  Many believe that poisoner-in-chief Vladimir Putin found a way to tamper with his foe’s beverages or foods and tried to kill him.

The archivists for Blodwyn Pig and Mick Abrahams delved into the musical files and released “Basement Tapes” on April 18, 2014.  This album also features thirteen songs which is seemingly a blues-sort of thing and which from the very opening chord to the last notes on the album are captivating, truly captivating.  Joining Mr. Abrahams are Mike Summerland and Andy Pyle (bass), Clive Bunker, Graham Walker, and Ron Berg (drums), and of course Jack Lancaster (saxophones).  This is indeed an enjoyable collection of tracks so why not give into your ears’ desire to hear some hot and sweaty blues music today.  We think you will enjoy the album.

As have the rest of my colleagues, local Bakersfield street artist, Simone, created these portraits of me that you will see over successive days here at the blog. I guess Simone did ‘okay’ in capturing my likeness; I guess it could have been worse. I was a young cook back in the early 1960's when I commenced my culinary career. I served underneath a Master Chef for many years before striking out on my own. I went up the coast of the Western United States and Canada, working all the way, until I made it to Alaska. From there, I moved to Hawaii for a couple of years (1994-1997) before I returned to Washington State and it was there that I met Stinkbug. El Chilote writes from Shafter, California. El Chilote is a moderate Democrat. Contact me at elchilote2121N@yahoo.com or elchilotegrande10@gmail.com
