    Which one of Jackson’s?
    It's her one volume Novels and Stories. I'm rereading The Haunting of Hill House for the first time since America's bicentennial. I don't care for most of her stuff, but The Lottery is pure genius and one I always enjoyed sharing with my Literature students (along with David Macauley's "BAAA").

    1)At 4:50 AM, the cats started a fur-pulling contest in the dining room. There was lots of hissing and growling.

    2)I parked in the grocery store's lot and thumbed the door lock button on Miss Mehetabel's key fob. Immediately, four other cars went into PANIC MODE.

    3)Played a dinner concert for a group of friends.

    1. Country ham, biscuits, and sawmill gravy for breakfast. Coffee with sugar and heavy whipping cream (unwhipped).

    2. Dogs licked my ears until I got out of bed. Fortunately, they'd not rolled in rabbit dung first.

    3. Preparing an early St. Patrick's Day meal of corned beef, cabbage, potatoes, and soda bread for company tonight. Peach cobbler for dessert. I love to cook and have people enjoy it.

    Time for another cup of coffee.

    Update: Dinner was cancelled due to "social distancing", which I agree with, so I'll be eating a lot of corn-beef and cabbage the next few days and putting about 5 lbs on corn beef in the freezer for hash and such.

    1) I've finally made it down to under 100 podcast episodes before I am caught up. At about 40 min average per episode, this shouldn't take much longer.
    2) We have enough to provide for ourselves and be a blessing to the less fortunate.
    3) This encouraging study out of France. Although the CDC isn't looking to chloroquine as an intervention, some other groups are. This study is deeply flawed in many ways (insufficient sample, unequal variance between the groups, participant fatality in the test group, etc), but tentatively provides some hope for a fast, effective COVID-19 treatment.
    Online arguments are a lot like the Rocky Horror Picture Show.
    As soon as the audience begins to participate, any actual content is lost in the resulting chaos and cacophony.
    At that point, all you can do is laugh and enjoy the descent into debasement.

    I used the Ignore setting again against a brain-dead zombie.

    Made French Toast with maple syrup.

    Digging up my garden spots to find all the leaves and mulch has turned to black gold.
