Covid19 and I HAVE A SUPPLIER FOR MASKS AND PPEs!!!!!!!!!

UPDATE 3/29 9:10 AM EST:

RECEIVED THIS EMAIL FROM SUPPLIER- THE CURRENT FACTORY HAS EXHAUSTED SUPPLIES, THEY’VE SOURCED ANOTHER- UPDATED ON THEIR IG PAGE

HERE IS THE EMAIL:

Hi jess
This is just a quick heads up
The current supplier has sold
Good news is we have a new supplier
There are people running around buying these for Russia and Eastern block countries
People need to be clear we can only help while we have access to these. They will run out
The new ones will be up on IG shortly
Hugs
T&D

UPDATE 3/27 9:30 PM EST:

THE FFP3 N95 MASKS ARE NOW DEPLETED UNTIL THE SUPPLIERS CAN REPLENISH THEIR STOCK- HOWEVER, THEY STILL HAVE KN95 FFP2 MASKS AND BLUE 3 PLY SURG MASKS AVAILABLE NOW!!

I am aware that I’ve been terribly remiss (a year’s worth) at updating our blog.

Maisie and I are fine, hoping we all stay this way- and all of you do also. We’ve been in isolation for over a month now- had influenza A, now our state is having us on lockdown- except for essential workers.

Staying home doesn’t mean staying idle at all.

I’ve been up all night, every night this week, talking to my friends in China who are medical equipment suppliers. We have gotten some orders out to people that desperately need them and are trying to supply our folks on the front lines-
If you, or any organization would like to have a fundraiser or raise money to buy and donate masks to those in need, please get a hold of them.
If you are a high risk individual, order for yourself. If you have a loved one working as a part of a cleaning crew, grocery store, healthcare- anyone on the front lines- get these for them!
They have both 3-ply and different grades of N95 medical respirator masks.
My friend is Australian- their factory is there in China- and they are true superheroes in this global fight against #covid19– They have secured all of the documentation needed to ensure that these masks are not counterfeit, available to be shipped to both the EU and North America with all the proper documentation needed for the FDA and customs,
It doesn’t matter how big your organization might be. If you would like to buy and donate masks to your local hospital to help fight the #Coronavirus– again, please contact these wonderful human beings.
Even one case of 100 masks would mean the difference between life and death.
Their Instagram for photos and videos: https://www.instagram.com/nbf_lab/
Direct email is: DomDavies_1@hotmail.com
They would also be available to speak directly on the telephone. As you can see, they are Australian nationals living and working in China.
Godspeed everyone. Let’s try to save the world.
We CAN do this.

Jess

The above video introduces you to my friends who are supplying PPEs and masks to those of you who need them- and to institutions that do. No shipment is too big or small.

Of Toddlers & Cinnamon Rolls

R (to Maisie, who has never had a cinnamon roll before): “Would you like a cinnamon roll with your breakfast?”

Maisie: “No thank you, just eggs and toast, please. I don’t like cinnamon rolls”

(I roll my eyes, she’s never had one, how could she possibly know?! TODDLERS.)

Me (to R): “Put a cinnamon roll on her plate- and some fruit, too”

Later, I noticed the cinnamon roll had been eaten first- completely gone- and half the fruit, gone- eggs virtually untouched.

Me (to Maisie): “How was that cinnamon roll, looks all gone to me”

Maisie gives me 2 thumbs up.

Me: “So, if someone offers you a cinnamon roll in the future, what will you say?”

Maisie: “Yes, PLEASE”

LOL

Incidentally, I hate cinnamon rolls. Jeff (who is here visiting for holidays) loves them and brought them here. This is why Maisie has never eaten one before.

Vacation Ideas

Decided to plan an overseas vacay- maybe, just the kid and me, for 2019.

Possible ideas:

-UK to visit friends and family

-Amsterdam and Belgium to see my friends and revisit old haunts.

-Palau in the Pacific to visit my brother

I just want to go somewhere relaxing, quiet, kid-friendly, and safe.

Any ideas?

Revisiting My Collard Greens recipe, this time, with an actual recipe!via Soul Food Fusion Feast: Collard Greens, White Truffle Sriracha Macaroni and Cheese, and the Works!Since I am making my greens for Thanksgiving tomorrow, I decided to include an actual written recipe with the repost:

Collard Greens w Hog Jowl Bacon

2 pkgs (the big ones) of shredded collard greens from the produce aisle (walmart carries them)

1 chopped onion

1 tsp red pepper flakes

4 tsp chicken bouillon

garlic powder (lots, to taste)

black pepper

1/4 cup of sugar

1/4-1/2 cup white vinegar

one BIG HUNK of Jowl bacon, chopped in bigger chunks

Fill a huge stock pot with the greens and everything. Cover with water just to line of greens. If it seems too much for pot, it will reduce- don’t worry.

Put pot on high and bring to boil- keep tasting the broth throughout the cooking process and adjust the garlic powder/ vinegar/sugar ratio. Turn down to simmer and cover til greens are tender and bacon is fork tender and melty- about 3-5 hours-

Science Skirt & Bow Photos! (Instagram)

I think this is my favorite fabric to date! It is adorable and has the requisite twirl factor that Maisie demands.

Honestly, I doubt I will ever buy her another skirt again, when I can churn these out daily.

The quality of my homesewn and designed skirts are far superior to the ones I can buy at the store. I don’t skimp on materials, everything is lined, it’s just amazingly easy for me to do this… and it teaches her how to sew, to boot!

Humans Think Using The Brain’s Navigation System, Reveals New Study (link)

2018-10-29 Figure1-4

“How do humans think? This is one of the most intriguing questions that has captivated neuroscientists for decades. And not long ago, it seemed like something that no one would ever find an answer to.

But, a team at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences (MPI CBS) in Leipzig, Germany, and the Kavli Institute for Systems Neuroscience in Trondheim, Norway have come up with a conclusive answer that humans think using the brain’s navigation system. The results of the finding have been published in the journal Science.”

Wish I knew how to press this, but sharing it instead:
