There is mild moderation.  Normal rules of blogger etiquette and courtesy to blog hosts will apply, with serious transgressors being thrown out.

Unfortunately our system does not allow your comments to show up in the blog post itself.  Just in the comments section.

A protest or demonstration is a “stunt” when it is devastatingly effective and undertaken by Republicans or conservatives.

Hysterical Pulshit

with 2 comments

Pulshit? I hear you ask.

Bullshit from the pulpit.

Yesterday at Church, the Rev gentleman delivered an excellent address on the life and Christian faith of the late Queen. He spoiled it with a rave about climate change and Covid deaths.

“3000 deaths from Covid in aged care!” he lamented.

Perhaps he hasn’t woken up to the fact old people die and many go into rest homes to do so.

Maybe he hasn’t caught on the the reported deaths actually are those WITH Covid, not those FROM Covid. e.g. I understand if a person tests positive for Covid a month before death but subsequently tests negative, the death is recorded as ‘from Covid’ even when the actual cause of death might have been heart attack, stroke, pneumonia or some other medical event.

My guess is careful examination of those death certificates will reveal less than three hundred were caused BY Covid.

The Adolfian Lunch

with 4 comments

Have you noticed how as old age sneaks up, one becomes attracted to the tucker our parents fed us when were kids? I’m talking about five to ten years old.

For me, the three stand-out examples are South African smoked cod, (It’s actually snook.) Maori mash and kutai (Green lipped mussels.)

My mother used to buy smoked cod in cans but now it’s sold frozen and until recently was $10/kg on special. On Thursdays at about 4.00 pm, the fish van would slowly drive up the valley and we would race across the paddocks to buy a couple of kilos of big, fat, juicy green lipped mussels – fresh. Today, I buy them frozen for $5.70/kg from The Spudshed, 20km up the road.

You mean you don’t know what Maori mash is?

Half pakeha spuds and half kumara, cut into one inch cubes. Coarse chop the kumara peel so it doesn’t block the potato masher. Steamed and mash. Put on plenty of ground black pepper before mashing. Stir in a knob of butter.

Adolf is a creature of habit so lunch on most days comprises a small cup of steamed rice (with onion, garlic and LOTS of chilli, all fine chopped,) a spoonfull of Maori mash, half a tomato, a small piece of fish, six prawn tails and four kutai with a small splash of soy sauce.

Yummo and double yum!

I would have given you a picture but it’s all gone. I ate it.
