Now that looks good. I'm wanting to try to duplicate a Sicilian tomato sauce that a little old world restaurant uses on their pizzas. I grew up in a Brooklyn neighborhood with many Italians and have always loved their cooking. This is a sweet sauce loaded with flavors that fade when it cools. I'm looking for a rich tomato paste called "Strattu" to add to a 106 oz can of Famoso Imported whole peeled Italian tomatoes in a rich puree with basil leaf. I seem to always come back to those tomatoes rather than crushed, fresh or anything else I have found so far. I really hate to ask them for their family recipe and enjoy trying to get close on my own.

Our home church sees more of us using Facebook Messenger so that we can see and hear each other online. My wife and I have been using that feature for months now since she can no longer get out of bed. During the message or discussion, we may all ask questions or add to the discussion or message as we are led to. I too, really miss being there in person. Occasionally on a Wed night I'll leave my wife for a few hours and join with my brothers and sisters in person. Likewise when they are in town they'll stop by for a visit though right now that's probably not a good idea.

I've been using this time to finally dig into the Old Testament. Sometimes I'll read it from the Bible itself in one of the many translations and then again from The Expositor's Study Bible KJV that has a running commentary mixed in with the verses by Jimmy Swaggart using the many scholars that he has read behind rather then his own opinions to form the commentary. I'm amazed at the added insights I'm receiving after years of mostly focusing on only the New Testament. I wish now that I'd taken my Pastor's advice and began reading from both down through the years we have been together.

Our county, which includes the Capitol with over 100,000 has only 7 known cases so far. Testing has been very minimal with less than 100 done.
Jesus replaces the old covenant and speaks to the believer the moral code of God by His Spirit directly to the heart. He is the eternal, everlasting revelation of God to mankind. In Him is both the knowledge of righteousness and the power to live right.

Fortunately the freezer is full of a recently butered steer. Deer meat , pork etc. All the employees are still on payroll but we’re doing curbside only no sales floor sales. It’s stressful and a kick in the pants but we’re counting our blessings. Apparently people crap a lot more during pandemics. Go figure!! This to shall pass.

Practiced social distancing yesterday in the mountain chasing stumps, and whatever else was laying around! Beautiful day here and I enjoyed it a lot. :mrgreen:

I've been working at home going on two weeks now and I certainly cannot complain. I get to step out on the porch, drink coffee, and listen for turkeys. I get to pet my dogs any time I want to. I can start smoking meat at lunchtime so that it's ready for supper. Life is good!

Darren, I think a whole lot of people will be scrutinizing the whole "office" thing in the near future. Many folks are working remotely and adapting just fine.

All is well here! We have scaled my business back to curbside only. Taking a kick in the pants profit wise but it’s only money. Think I’ll go fishing!!
