    Spanish Inquisition as a theme ......... sounds so cool. A mash-up of a Renaissance faire, revival meeting and witch burning.

    I could see that.

    That last time I was in Port Townsend, WA, they had some form of Steam Punk festival. Silly me, I assumed that was something younger folks did. But, there I was, drinking my beer, while surrounded by 20~25 folks my age or older dressed as either Steve Nicks and Mick Fleetwood on the Rumors Album cover...........

    It seemed to be a tolerant and accepting community. But, some definitely did a better job of dressing for their roles. There were good Micks and good Stevies...............then there were the Sticks and Mievies.

    A new and easy test for the horror of Covid-19 is doing the rounds and it's simple, quick and positive (or negative if you see what I mean.).

    Take a glass and pour a decent dram of your favourite whisky into it; then see if you can smell it. If you can, then you are halfway there.

    Then drink it. If you can taste it then it is reasonable to assume you are currently free of the virus because the loss of the sense of smell and the sense taste is a common symptom..

    I tested myself 7 times last night and was virus free every time, thank goodness.

    I will have to test myself again today because I have developed a throbbing headache which can also be one of the symptoms..

    I'll report my results later..

    Excellent idea! I'm so impressed at the lengths some will go to help out during these times.

    Y'all be careful now, y'hear. The inability to smell is also a fairly common symptom of Alzheimer disease and other forms of dementia: Especially the inability to smell peanut butter.
