Surprise - COVID-19 Survives On Refrigerated & Frozen Food

COVID-19 has been found to be able to survive refrigeration and freezing. That has been hypothesized as the probable reason a number of same household members, some of whom who work in a frozen meat processing plant in New Zealand, have contracted the disease after 100 days of no new cases in that country. (Source.)

Why does it come as a surprise to anyone in the scientific or medical fields, specifically those researching COVID-19 or other viruses? The fact has long been that freezing viruses, for the long term, is one of the preferred methods of storing viruses for future study? (Source - see page 21 for the preferred method and temperature which they show as -70 C or in other words very cold and very frozen.)

And they call themselves experts on this virus - nope not yet are they such. It was called the Novel Corona Virus at first and it is little wonder no one is an expert on something new.

All the best,

The New Do - But The Same Old Me

From the Wilderman look to the new do; I think the ears and back of my neck are going to need some sunscreen.

I walked into the barber shop looking more or less like this today as far as my hair went.

$9.00 plus tip later, I can out looking like this.

From the Wilder Mann look to the new do; I think the ears and back of my neck are going to need some sunscreen.

Selling My Browning BLR Lightweight '81 .30-06...

...but, of course, not by way of my blog and because that would be, I think, against their rules. I do have it up for sale over on GunBroker and in the event any of you are interested (and I think saying this is not against the rules) here is the link to it.

August 27, 2020 Edited To Add: GunBroker came through again. Had a bid on the BLR yesterday. While the selling price was only equal to the required starting bid, I am happy because it worked out well for me. Well, that is it will work out well if I receive payment & the required paperwork and if the buyer is happy with it (and it is just as it was described so that should not be an issue). Being I just purchased about $1,750 worth of ammo and gun parts, that is a good thing because I could not afford that cash outlay.

All the best,
