In the United States, here are today’s numbers: 4,250,380 confirmed cases, UP 64,051 new cases, 148,593 confirmed deaths, UP 943, and 1,277,437 confirmed recoveries, UP 21,030. Next, in the three states where 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: 445,400 confirmed cases, 8,337 confirmed deaths, but thanks to Gov. Gavin Newsom being little more than a festering POS, NO mention of confirmed recoveries. In Hawaii, here are the stats: 1,620 confirmed cases, 26 confirmed deaths, and 1,167 confirmed recoveries. Finally, in the too-far-left-to-save-state-of-Washington, here are the stats: 51,849 confirmed cases, 1,495 confirmed deaths, and like California’s worthless governor, Gov. Jay Inslee won’t list the number of confirmed recoveries. Let’s look at the numbers of another state we haven’t looked at lately, Illinois, the “Land of Lincoln,” one of the worst states for out-of-control liberal politics. The number of cases in the state is 169,883 while the number of deaths is 7,560. No mention of the number of confirmed recoveries. Such a shame.
- 2021 Sunday: Folks, for Christ’s Sake, it’s Sunday, let’s hope the Chi-Coms and their stooge in the White House and their other stooges scattered throughout the government are not causing problems today. Stick around and discover what they’re doing along with me- Chef Charles.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
Blodwyn Pig went into the studio and created a true gem in “All Said and Done,” (March 28, 2004). Mick Abrams and band redid in its entirety Jethro Tull’s first album, “This Was,” and what a difference between Ian Anderson’s ultimate version and guitarist Abrams musical views. Remember, after “This Was,” the creative difference between Ian Anderson and the fiery guitarist caused the latter to bolt and everyone knows the rest of the story. The other album of this two-disc set is a smoking, red-hot album, both of which make a highly desirable package. We hope you will go out and seek this album out wherever it is you shop for the absolute best in rock music- you will be glad you did.
