President Trump’s endorsement means a great deal to those to whom he gives it- like Governor Mike Dunleavy of Alaska…

Trump tells Governor Mike Dunleavy of Alaska, “I will endorse YOU but do not support that RINO hag, Lisa Murkowski.” Whoa.

Trump Covid-19 Deaths- Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 438,423 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic.

Trump’s 15-month number by 35,101 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths.  Joe has done this in, uh, 343 days.  Congratulations, Joe!  You said you would combat COVID-19 and it appears that COVID has conquered you.  YOU.  Loser.

  7. 2021 Wednesday F: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News- (1) Pfizer: $57.58 (2) AstraZeneca: $58.65 (3) Merck & Company: $76.95 (4) Johnson & Johnson: $171.55 (5) Novavax: $153.25 (6) BioNTech: $240.61 (7) Moderna: $247.88.
  8. 2021 Wednesday G: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News- (1) Raytheon: $85.89 (2) General Dynamics: $207.89 (3) Boeing: $203.66 (4) Lockheed Martin: $354.27 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $384.99.
  9. 2021 Wednesday H: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News- (1) Ansell Ltd.: $32.31 (2) DuPont: $80.59 (3) Honeywell: $207.53 (4) 3M: $178.41 (5) Teijen: $1,417.00.
  10. 2021 Wednesday I: Artificial (Fake) Meat Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 4) News- (1) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $63.90 (2) Maple Leaf Foods/Tofurkey: $28.89 (3) Beyond Meat: $63.26.

  12. 2021 Wednesday K: Joe Biden News I- Progressive lawmakers continue pushing senile old Joe Biden to shove his Build Back Better (Bullshit) bill through via using executive orders.  Speaking of doddering Joe, we learned today the old Democrat has gone home to Delaware 31 times since taking office.  Everyone understands this is where they recharge the fading ‘president’ as to be halfway passable as a ‘president,’ he must appear reasonably coherent which seemingly is becoming much more difficult as his first-year passes.
  13. 2021 Wednesday L: Political News I- Political prognosticators are saying that President Donald J. Trump and nine other Republicans will be running in 2024 to replace crumbling Joe Biden.  We suspect that when President Trump announces his third run for the White House, most of the nine- the saner ones at least- will gracefully bow out- until next time.   Speaking of the true and rightful president, President Donald J. Trump has endorsed Alaska Governor Mike Dunleavy for a second term just so long as the good governor does not endorse Senator Lisa Murkowski, the RINO renegade so detested by millions of Republicans.
  14. 2021 Wednesday M: Federal and State Court News- In New York City, New York, a jury found Ghislaine Maxwell- billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s procurer- guilty on five of six counts.   We expect she won’t survive until sentencing.

Richard Thompson released his next studio album, “The Old Kit Bag,” on February 10, 2003.  Once again, the legendary guitarist delivered the goods which music critics consider to be among his best works yet did not fare well in the stores.  Grunge was exploding all over the place and it was difficult for old-timers to remain current yet in our eyes, Mr. Thompson is ALWAYS current no matter what anyone else thinks.  Joining the smoking hot guitarist/vocalist are (1) Michael Jerome (drums, percussion); (2) Danny Thompson (bass); and (3) Judith Owen (vocals).  For some, Thompson is an acquired taste and for loads of others, his music is always a joy to behold.  We hope you will investigate this one to your hearts’- and ears’- content.  We think you will be glad you did.

I have been in professional food service for a long, long time, moving into management back in 1973. At the time, I was the Food and Beverage Director at one of the hotels in Bakersfield, CA, located on Union Avenue. I was in my late thirties at the time. I am still working at one of the local hotels in the nearby town of Delano, CA, a place that has been my home for the past 10 years. Our city has experienced marvelous growth and is fast becoming a player in county politics. Chef Charles Smithenstein writes from Delano, California.
