Well...if this was a Charlie Brown cartoon

This is what the USA looks like right about now...

Profile: Pig-Pen (Official) is an animated gif that was created ...

 

Time will come when we could play together again. But not now.

 

Until then, Canada is happy going on at it by itself.     Sorry.

Sun dried tomato vinaigrette salad dressing is one of the finest supermarket items I've habitually purchased.

I used to routinely buy the Wishbone brand years ago.

More recently, Kraft and Ken's made it. And I would buy it.  Now, its availability has just STOPPED.  Cue Eddie Murphy saying, "It just stopped, man!"

I'm hoping this is temporary.  It's ridiculous.  Consumers are clamoring for it.  Instead, they offer all these other creative but "stupid" salad dressing flavors.

On a more positive note, Turkey Hill ice cream and dairy in headquartered in none other than ocnblu's Lancaster, PA region.  "Interesting" name.  Great stuff.  And I've got a good coupon burning a hole in my pocket.

Most likely without a refresh, I'm thinking.

Seems Canada has decided they do not want us. :P

8 in 10 Canadians want the border to remain closed to the US.

Can you blame them? The US looks deeply incompetent compared to most of the developed world when it comes to Covid-19.

Cut tomato sauce with heavy amount of cane sugar to get to a neutral PH level and I can tolerate it, but the Heart Burn sucks. Grew up on eating homemade Tomato soup and as I got older, it just made me ill. My body seems to not get along with Tomato anything.

Rather have a Pesto Chicken pizza.

My other goto Pizza is BBQ Chicken Pizza. Everything is better with BBQ sauce.

Pizza is awesome, white sauce pizza everything is da Bomb!

Got it.  I remember you saying that before.  Tomatoes are rich in lycopene.  I like most things with tomatoes but, like your pizzas, I may like pesto even more.

I also have a "no way" list:  anything spicy, eggplant, pecan pie, curry, and some types of shellfish are on that list.

As for the ice cream with turkey in it, I haven't used the coupon yet (this weekend) and I've never had ice cream with tryptophan in it, so I'll let you know!

Stay safe my friend, I hear 25% of those tested are positive for Covid-19 and Arizona is now running the highest infection rate with highest death rate. Scary.

Misinformed Lefty and MSM hype...

Yup.  fix yer shyte!

That's great, because your clueless PM has air travel open with China during a Pandemic that started there so good luck with that...the CCP is lying about positive cases and deaths it's all propaganda that your Lefty PM fell for. Why would he let your people travel to China where's it's still a huge outbreak?! Makes no sense, he should never trust the Communist dictators. Should be shut down until we (the U.S.A.) get a vaccine ready first and we will be first, then all ya'll Canucks will be knocking our door down again. Maybe we won't answer when you need us if you cut us off? Nah, we will because that's what we do, more humanitarian work and science break through comes from the U.S.A. than anywhere else in the world. Better write your PM! ;)   

Fix our shyte?! Obviously, you're being facetious.

In June your PM states this. Sounds like pretty rocky relations with China...

https://www.insauga.com/trudeau-says-canada-will-not-open-borders-for-international-travel-too-hastily

Today still allows travel to China...

https://travel.gc.ca/destinations/china

Highest advisory is "Avoid all Travel" he has it set as "Avoid Non-Essential Travel" for China...it should be shut down like our President did in January.

That's why Canada still allows travel to and from China and we don't...?

There's more travel from Europe and Asia to the US than anywhere else so the spread would happen very fast. Pandemics like this is why we paid the W.H.O. hundreds of millions per year to catch this kind of contagion and sound the alarm, but they let us down big time! We shut down China travel early back in January once we found out how nasty it was and yes I think we should have shut down travel from Europe back then as well with Italy and others spiking cases. We knew cases would spike in the U.S. when we reopened, but we had hospitals prepared and knew more about SARS-CoV-2 once our doctors and scientists had time to find out what it was since the WHO and China held or hide information about it while it spread like wildfire throughout the world, but China made sure to protect it's own mainland from travel at the same time. Pretty damn suspicious if you ask me. Much of the incompetence comes from what people hear from the hate filled incompetent MSM.

I think his name was Joe something.

I know

I wanted to reciprocate the joke by showing a GIF of a  Canadian (NHL) hockey player  playing in a very historical series between Canada and the USSR in 1972. Hatred for the Russians in Canada was very real, and Im sure Russians hated Canada and Canadians just as much too.  It wasnt just about a hockey tournament. It was political.  The Cold War.  It wasnt just about who has a better hockey team, hockey program. It was really about Capitalism versus Communism. Us against them. 

Phil Esposito really wanted to tear a Russian hockey player's head off.  That was a real emotion and action from Esposito. 

Canadians usually dont express that kind of hate and anger.  The whole Canadians are polite thing....

I thought it was funny.

But I think we should just end it because I see fireworks could be started easily with the last coupla posts...

Back to tomatoes I think...

Gee Balthy...those looks like delicious tomatoes you are growing there!!!   👍

Well a few months back, I posted a photo of the actual Turkey Hill.  My favorite rail trail lies at the base of it.  The Susquehannock Indians enjoyed bountiful turkey hunting on that hill, hence the name.  Goes back to William Penn's days.

https://www.turkeyhill.com/about/turkey-hill-name

Here's the Turkey Hill Overlook, and the magnificent Susquehanna River -

Stunning 

I dont think I ever saw Turkey Hill ice cream around here. Ill keep an eye out for it. 

I love posts like these.

A bad day for this guy. Heavily modified suspension and wheels are too wide and frogged out probably have spacers at the hub too. Looks like it makes it's way back to them towards the end of vid 😂

Turkey Hill used to be my fav but I think Blue Bunny eclipses it.

Hadn't heard of Turkey Hill, have had Blue Bunny somewhere before. My favorite home ice cream around here is from one of my local grocery chains, Heinen's.. Their ice cream is delicious.

In our garden yesterday. I don’t care for tomatoes in their natural form, diced small is OK, but all other forms are fine.
