On a recent morning, Regal UA Court Street in Brooklyn was unusually quiet. Posters for “Jackass Forever” and “American Underdog” hung in its windows, but the curved marquee had been stripped of its lettering and its glass doors were locked. Looking inside, you could see a scattering of dead leaves on the dark lobby floor, like tumbleweeds in a western.

Two teenagers, Kimani Augustin and her friend Demarcus Cousins ​​(yes, like the basketball player), stood outside and reminisced about the good times they had there. “It could get crazy,” Kimani said, “but it was still amazing.”

The theater closed last Sunday, taking regulars by surprise. Immediately, Twitter tributes poured in, many of them written in a tone of ironic amusement. Dean Fleischer-Camp, a filmmaker, said his favorite cinematic experience involved people “screaming, laughing, singing” and “throwing popcorn” during a 6 p.m. showing of “Drag Me to Hell.” Lincoln Restler, the newly elected councilman whose district includes downtown Brooklyn, shared a photo of a moving van parked outside. “For the screaming action movie experience,” he wrote, “there was no better place!”

Cyrus McQueen, comedian and author of “Tweeting Truth to Power,” a book of essays on race and politics in America, was as struck by what these commentators didn’t say as by what they did. . “I’m an African-American male, so I speak clearly,” he said. “It was a black theater. You shouted at the screen and people spoke. A longtime resident of Crown Heights, McQueen considered a sold-out screening of “Black Panther” at the Regal one of the highlights of his life.

“A major component of black existence is forced behavior in white spaces,” he said. “There is a comfort derived from taking off the disguise, even if only for a few minutes at the movies.”

For more than two decades, the 13-story megaplex has been a cultural mainstay in downtown Brooklyn, a shopping destination for residents of the borough’s predominantly working-class black neighborhoods. Residents of Bedford-Stuyvesant, Flatbush, and Brownsville traveled there by train, bus, and dollar vans, occasionally stopping to shop or eat at the nearby Fulton Mall.

But soon after the Regal opened, developers began transforming the neighborhood, pushing aside local businesses to make way for luxury condo towers. At the Alamo Drafthouse, a theater that opened in one of those towers a few years ago, you can watch your movie while sipping dry rose cider and eating margherita pizza in a plush recliner. “It’s a bit hoity-toity,” said RJ Adams, a freelance photographer from East New York. “Everyone is stuck. At Court Street, everyone was just relaxed.

The Court Street theater closed without warning or explanation. Whether it fell victim to gentrification, the pandemic, competition from streaming services, or some other evil remains a mystery. A representative for the channel did not respond to multiple voicemails seeking comment; a spokeswoman for Madison International Realty, the owner, wrote that the company is “gathering more information” and that it shares “the community’s disappointment.” Rendy Jones, a 23-year-old member of the Regal Crown Club rewards program, was puzzled. “I need to know what happened,” he said. “At least email me about it!” »

Mr Jones, a film buff from Crown Heights, said he cried when he first saw the news on Twitter. “I started going there before I could even walk, whether it was with my mom or my dad,” he said on the phone the other day. “I still have my ticket stubs. I watch them now. At 13, he started blogging about movies; eventually he became an accredited critic for Rotten Tomatoes, an achievement he credits to the Regal.

Like many teenagers, he took advantage of the relaxed atmosphere of the establishment to see three or four films a day, moving from one room to another when the employees were not watching. “I would plan it as a supervillain,” he said. Still, he was surprised to see people on Twitter describing the theater as “chaotic” and “turbulent”. “All I remember is watching movies and having a good time,” he said. “I never saw anything crazy happen there.”

BA Parker, a former film professor and co-host of The Cut podcast, did. Two years ago, she went to the theater to see “The Photograph,” a romantic drama starring Issa Rae and Lakeith Stanfield. “They showed the first five minutes of ‘Harley Quinn’ before they realized they screwed up and needed to change the reel,” she said. “The children started screaming. Halfway through the cops came in and took them out. Twenty minutes later, the kids came back shouting, “We’re back!” I still can’t tell you what happened in “The Photograph.”

Ms Parker, who is black, said three of her five worst movie experiences happened there. Even so, she was sad to see him go. “I’ve been to 70% of the theaters in New York,” she said, “and losing one is a tragedy for me.”

Animals infecting humans are scary. It’s worse when we infect them back. https://fuzerestaurantandlounge.com/animals-infecting-humans-are-scary-its-worse-when-we-infect-them-back/ Wed, 19 Jan 2022 10:00:15 +0000 https://fuzerestaurantandlounge.com/animals-infecting-humans-are-scary-its-worse-when-we-infect-them-back/ And unlike a jail, a mink shed has no plumbing. “We focus a lot on respiratory transmission between people,” says zoonotic disease ecologist Jonathan Epstein, “but it’s important to remember that this is also a virus of the gastrointestinal tract and that ‘it is excreted in the stool’.

And unlike a jail, a mink shed has no plumbing. “We focus a lot on respiratory transmission between people,” says zoonotic disease ecologist Jonathan Epstein, “but it’s important to remember that this is also a virus of the gastrointestinal tract and that ‘it is excreted in the stool’. As we flush our own infected droppings down porcelain toilets, mink droppings accumulate under their cages in damp mounds in which the coronavirus can remain infectious for days, long enough to be aerosolized when farm workers shovel it. .

It is likely that the factory farming conditions to which mink are subjected make them particularly susceptible to microbial pathogens. Despite their undeniably adorable exteriors – alert, wide eyes, delicate, partially webbed paws, and long furry bodies – minks are not social herd animals like cows, sheep, chickens and pigs, which were domesticated by humans for thousands of years, exchanging microbes with each other and with us. They are solitary, carnivorous predators, unaccustomed to living near other individuals. It is unclear exactly how the stress of overcrowding affects mink, although it is thought to suppress their immune systems. Farmed mink are notoriously vulnerable to pathogens such as distemper and influenza. Mink farmers have to pump them with vaccines to keep them alive for the few months it takes them to develop thick fur.

Michael Whelan, then a spokesman for the mink industry, told me that ranchers in the United States had developed “strict biosecurity measures” to prevent microbial transmission between humans and animals on farms. of minks. Livestock operations – such as poultry farms, for example – often require workers to wear Tyvek coveralls, masks and booties and “shower-in” and “shower-out” fully sealed sheds where captive animals are kept. And yet, many mink farms I visited in Utah didn’t even have proper fencing around their borders. The rickety perimeter gate around a farm I saw was open to traffic, including cows in an adjacent clearing, deer that nearby road signs warned of, and a pack of feral cats weaving their way across the gravel plot of the farm a few meters from the mink without door sheds.

Unlike Europe, health officials in the United States have not conducted active surveillance of mink farms for the coronavirus, relying instead on mink farmers to self-report outbreaks. Publicly, industry representatives said they took the risk of coronavirus incursions seriously, but privately many were almost dismissive of the threat the virus posed. A mink farmer, Joe Ruef, described the coronavirus in mink as a “non-event” when we spoke by phone. Industry trade group Fur Commission USA called it a “suspected ‘public health threat,'” in an email to its members that was leaked to activists and shared with me. learned that I was visiting mink farms in Utah, the Fur Commission USA sent a “safety alert” to its members, with a photo of my rental car and its license plates. on your property” and “under no circumstances leave it near mink sheds,” he said, because “any photos or documented cases of ranches not adhering to recommended biosecurity protocols could harm our advocacy efforts. American producers.

As a relatively small industry that sells most of its animal products overseas as clothing rather than food, mink farms have escaped most regulatory controls. Federal animal laws — such as the Animal Welfare Act and the Humane Slaughter Act — do not cover animals on fur farms. Few states require mink farms to be licensed or inspected; none require veterinary supervision. Like most states, Utah has no regulations on raising fur animals. Even minimal containment strategies designed for infected mink farms have proven difficult to implement. In Utah, mink farmers were “pretty reluctant to have anyone come into their facilities,” Utah State Veterinarian Dean Taylor told me. In internal correspondence acquired through public records requests, Utah health department officials discussed an infected farm that the department was not authorized to access, even for testing. Unregulated and secretive mink farms, says Han, “are not that different, if you think about it, from those captive wild animal farms that we hear about in Asia.”

At the 12 mink farms that have reported outbreaks, health officials have implemented quarantines, testing protocols and trapping programs to capture and test nearby animals. Unlike Europe, there was no culling of susceptible or infected mink. While in 2014 and 2015 the USDA paid $200 million to compensate farmers for culling 50 million farmed birds to stave off an outbreak of bird flu, the agency had no budget to do the same to prevent the coronavirus from exploding in mink farms.

Hidden parties a major issue for the COVID task force — Lionel Michael https://fuzerestaurantandlounge.com/hidden-parties-a-major-issue-for-the-covid-task-force-lionel-michael/ Mon, 17 Jan 2022 18:00:00 +0000 https://fuzerestaurantandlounge.com/hidden-parties-a-major-issue-for-the-covid-task-force-lionel-michael/ in All News / By: BVI News on Jan 17, 2022 8:42 AM / Director of Environmental Health, Lionel Michael.

Director of Environmental Health, Lionel Michael.

Environmental Health Director Lionel Michael said hosting “clandestine parties” was contributing to the spread of COVID-19 in BVI.

Michael, who oversees the social distancing task force, said his agency has encountered serious challenges, particularly with parties that have been advertised without any locations or contact details.

“I think the biggest problem we have now is these parties. These parties and parties that people are throwing and they don’t tell the ministry or the task force when they’re throwing them or where they’re throwing them,” Michael said at a recent party forum. stakeholders to deal with the outbreak of COVID-19 in the territory.

According to Michael, when Social Distancing Task Force officers finally arrive at these events, they are often greeted by people in violation of social distancing protocols.

“When we introduce ourselves, we see people, it’s a big challenge. People don’t wear masks. Of course, they tell you they have their drinks; they eat, they drink,” he added.

Michael acknowledged that the provision of masks allows for the removal of masks during meals and drinks, but said that even when people are not eating or drinking, they remain maskless at these events.

In the meantime, he said concerns remain about establishments that can easily accommodate more than 100 people but still have overcrowding issues.

“We see people having 20 people, 30 people in their place and they can hold 150 and they have 25 and people are still crowding. It seems to be a natural human tendency because when they go out, when they go to social activities, they tend to congregate, congregate and get closer to each other,” Michael said.

He said masks become even more important in these cases.

Penalties

Individuals are fined $100 for a first offense in violation of COVID-19 protocols, while repeat offenders are charged $200 for a second offense.

On the other hand, there is also a fixed fine of $1,000 for companies that violate the protocols. The business will also be closed immediately, Michael said.

He said this is usually followed by training, a quiz, the implementation of social distancing measures and an inspection before they can reopen.

More than 400 tickets

Michael said more than 400 tickets have been issued so far since the task force was established.

The Social Distancing Task Force, under the Environmental Health Division, consists of 43 officers who are stationed in Tortola, Virgin Gorda, Jost Van Dyke and Anegada.

Officers are responsible for daily surveillance of designated areas within the Territory to ensure that businesses and individuals are adhering to preventative health and safety measures such as wearing face masks in public spaces, maintaining size gatherings, physical distancing, and disinfection protocols and measures.

Like the mayors of Minneapolis and St. Paul did last week, Duluth Mayor Emily Larson issued an indoor mask mandate, effective Jan. 13, 2022, due to the spread of the COVID-19 Omicron variant.

City of Duluth Proclamation and Declaration of Emergency

The Duluth mask mandate states “[n]o the person who controls a Public Accommodation Space must allow a person five years of age or older to enter or remain in their Public Accommodation Space without wearing a face covering. The mask mandate also states “[n]o anyone aged five or over must enter or stay in a public accommodation space without wearing a face covering. Thus, there are obligations for both companies and people to comply with this mandate.

“Public Hosting Space” is defined as:

… the interior space of a business, or an establishment for education, refreshment, entertainment or recreation, or public transport, or an institution of any kind, authorized or not, whose goods, services, facilities, privileges, benefits or accommodations are extended, offered, sold or otherwise made available to the public.

The mask mandate further provides some common examples of public accommodation spaces, including: “retail stores, rental establishments, buses, Duluth Transit Authority facilities and shelters, government buildings, the Duluth Skywalk system, places of worship and service establishments alike as well as educational institutions, recreation facilities and service centers. “Face covering” is also defined as something that complies with CDC guidelines and that: (1) covers the mouth and nose; (2) hugs the sides of the face perfectly; and (3) is attached to the face.

Employers who control public accommodation spaces must also “post a notice[s] of this face covering requirement in conspicuous places inside and outside the entrances to their public accommodation space. The City of Duluth also provided examples of signage.

The Duluth mandate provides for a number of exceptions, including:

  1. People unable to wear a face covering for genuine medical reasons;

  2. People in a private room in a multi-tenant residence, such as an apartment building, or an accommodation facility, such as a hotel, motel, or vacation rental. Face coverings must be worn in all indoor common areas of said establishments;

  3. Commercial customers in public accommodation spaces who are actively eating and/or drinking provided that all individuals wear face coverings when walking to or from their seat while standing or walking in public spaces such as lobbies and restrooms, and when an employee out of business is at the table to serve or clean up;

  4. Business owners, managers, and employees who are in an area of ​​a business establishment that is not open to customers, customers, or the public, provided there is a six-foot distance between people

  5. Educational and child care facilities with written plans consistent with state guidelines;

  6. Fitness facilities with written plans consistent with state guidelines;

  7. In settings where it is not possible to wear a face covering, including when obtaining or providing goods or services such as receiving medical or dental services, or swimming; and

  8. Police, firefighters and other first responders when not practical or engaged in a matter of public safety.

Violators of the Duluth mask mandate may be: issued warning letters; fine ; charged with civil intrusion into public accommodation space; sued for trespassing under the City of Duluth Code 34-40; and liable to criminal prosecution.

The City of Duluth mandate compliance period is short (like the Minneapolis and St. Paul mask mandates), leaving little time for employers to comply. The mask mandate takes effect on Friday January 14, 2022 at 5:00 p.m. and will end on February 12, 2022 at 5:00 p.m.

Given the short compliance period, companies may wish to review the mandate and number of exceptions to determine their applicability to their workplaces. Businesses may also want to print and hang required signage.

VSConservatives today look like eccentrics, not because of the personal failings of this or that politician, but because they cannot cope with the crises of the modern world. It’s not that they don’t have answers – right-wing thinkers spit them out faster than a machine gun fires bullets. It’s just that their answers are irrelevant and, even in conservative terms, doomed to fail.

All viable responses to global warming, vaccination, job losses that artificial intelligence will bring and failing public health strengthen the role of the state. It must provide jobs and benefits for the losers in society, protect their health, and radically reconfigure markets to support the planet. The small states that allow sovereign individuals and corporations to decide for themselves now feel as antiquated as Margaret Thatcher’s purse and pearls.

At best, the Conservatives will have the end but not the means, as the Johnson government is doing with the climate crisis and the protection of the NHS from the Covid pandemic. At worst, they retreat from modernity into denial and conspiratorial gibberish.

I know of no better example of the law’s inability to confront the world before its eyes than the collapse of public health, which will become more and more visible as 2022 wears on.

Inflation and tax increases push a large part of the population into poverty or into a nearby location. In a way that would astonish our ancestors, poverty will produce obesity. Anyone in government who cared about studying the crisis knows that the cheapest meals are no longer vegetables and rice, potatoes or bread, the traditional diet of the poor. Now it’s ultra-processed, industrial foods, whose manufacturers use the cheapest, least nutritious ingredients and economies of scale to keep the price as low as possible and whiskers of fat, sugar or salt to keep the price down. make their grime palatable. The government knows it, but will do next to nothing about it.

Tim Lang, the author of Feeding Britainrefers me to studies showing that the UK had the worst diet in Europe, with half of all food purchased processed to the nth degree. The result is that hundreds of thousands of people suffer preventable deaths or painful, cramped years of life as they grapple with the chronic diseases that fat brings: cancer, heart disease, stroke, dementia. and, of course, Covid.

The moral argument for preventing unnecessary pain is overwhelming. Meanwhile, even the most hardened Conservatives should want to limit escalating health care costs, if only to conserve their money. The NHS spends £ 18 billion a year treating obesity-related conditions, a figure that is bound to rise. Horrible diets mean higher taxes.

They cannot bring themselves to act, just as they cannot bring themselves to tell Novak Djokovices from the UK that there is a price to be paid for refusing to get the vaccine or putting yourself on the same level as the public. on the revolutionary changes of national life a serious attempt to cope with the climate change will bring.

The best the Conservatives could do was task Henry Dimbleby with producing a national food strategy. Last summer, he recommended that the government intervene to produce a long-term change in eating habits, that sugar and salt be considered modern versions of tobacco and taxed accordingly, and that the government protect them. food standards in trade agreements.

The report has been criticized for treating food poverty as a separate condition. Our own Jay Rayner, the Robespierre of radical restaurant critics, yelled that there is no food poverty, there is only poverty. The best way to deal with the current declining standard of living is to listen to Marcus Rashford and restore the cuts to universal credit.

Dimbleby is indeed a classic establishment figure: fathered by David, educated by Eton. But that’s what makes it interesting. He offered the Conservatives the opportunity to change rather than reverse their beliefs. Throughout its history, the Conservative Party has survived by making concessions to changing times to better ensure that it remains in control of change. “Conservative men, Whig measures,” as Disraeli put it.

Now he can neither adapt nor give in. Ministers sat on the Dimbleby report for months. In cabinet, all the familiar arguments are heard against, in that revealing upper-class phrase, the “nanny state” interfering with free markets and freedom of choice. Officials mutter that better health labeling on food products does not matter to their political masters.

Readers may laugh at curators for talking about nannies. But there is a long tradition of leftists worried that the middle classes are telling the working classes what to do.

“Ordinary human beings would starve rather than live on brown bread and raw carrots,” wrote George Orwell in 1936. “When you are malnourished, harassed, bored and miserable, you don’t want to eat healthy food. and dull. You want something a little ‘tasty’. In other words, it is not that the concerns are not justified. It’s just that they don’t provide any solution.

History is not a test. No teacher rewards students who answer questions correctly. Perhaps conservative politicians can prosper by overcoming the backlash against the costs of the net zero push. Donald Trump has already shown them the way.

But whatever electoral success they continue to enjoy, Conservatives can see the world created by Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan crumble. They fear a primitive and restricted future when the state clamps down on business, tells you what to eat, how often you can fly, when to get vaccinated, how you should heat your house, and what type of car you can drive. , if applicable. But then, when the current wave of conservatism began in the 1980s, critics on the left saw how it would lead to a corrupt and divided future. If Thatcher wins, said Neil Kinnock in 1983, “I warn you not to be ordinary, I warn you not to be young, I warn you not to get sick, I warn you not to grow old.” His speech and his foresight did no good for the Labor Party because the left no longer seemed to have credible solutions.

Now it is the Conservatives who cannot react to change. The 21st century baffles them. They don’t know what to do about it. This is why, despite their apparent self-confidence, so many speeches by conservative politicians and articles by conservative thinkers seem more than a little unbalanced.

An indoor mask mandate for public places in Portland takes effect Wednesday following unanimous city council approval Monday night. The warrant comes as Maine continues to see high COVID-19 workloads and the state prepares for the rise of the omicron variant.

What does the prescription say?

The mask ordinance requires all people entering public buildings in the city to wear face coverings over their noses and mouths. A public building is a building or part of a building that is regularly accessible to the general public. This does not include private residences or residential units; public schools, which come under the jurisdiction of the school board and which already require masks inside and on school buses; and churches and other places of worship.

Other exceptions are office spaces where occupants are separated from the general public and parts of theaters, gymnasiums and arenas where participants have all been vaccinated and there is either a space, physical barrier or ventilation. separating from the general public.

Face coverings should also be worn when using or operating public transport, including buses, trains, taxis, carpools, rental vehicles, and other transportation services.

Who should wear a mask?

The mandate applies to anyone 2 years of age and older, although there are exceptions for people with health problems complicated or irritated by a face covering and anyone who has difficulty breathing or who is disabled. A person alone in a public building is also not required to wear a mask.

Is there an exception in companies that require proof of COVID-19 vaccination?

Yes. Companies that verify vaccination and limit admission to those who have presented proof of vaccination do not have to require masks inside.

Who is considered vaccinated?

The city uses the definition of fully immunized from the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The agency currently considers people to be fully vaccinated two weeks after their second dose in a two-dose series, like the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or two weeks after a single-dose vaccine like the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

Can companies require both masks and vaccines?

Yes, companies can require both. The order focuses on masks, but the city’s director of health and social services said on Monday that a multi-pronged approach involving both masks and vaccinations is ideal. “It is important to remember that no action will mitigate COVID-19 and that all strategies must be used together if we are to see a successful drop in numbers,” HHS director Kristen Dow told the board. .

Should companies publicize the mask’s mandate?

Yes. The ordinance states that businesses and other public buildings that fall under the mandate must post signs, at their entrances and other appropriate places such as back doors or cash registers, indicating that persons entering are required to carry face coverings by order of the municipal council. . This must be done before January 10th.

Should I wear a mask at the gym? And at the table in a restaurant?

The mandate applies to gymnasiums, although they can take advantage of the vaccine exception. Additionally, if a gymnasium has a fully immunized area separate from the general public, masks should not be worn in that area.

The ordinance also states that people can temporarily remove their masks “to participate in the primary purpose of the business, such as eating or drinking” at a restaurant. However, such removal should take place in an isolated location, such as a table or booth, and people should put on their masks as soon as this activity is over or if they move away from their isolated location.

Does the mandate apply to non-public spaces attached to public spaces, such as the garage of a mechanical workshop with a waiting area for customers or a grocery store?

The definition of “public building” in the ordinance refers to “any building or part of a building in the City of Portland that is regularly accessible to the general public.” In these examples, if the garage area of ​​the mechanical workshop is not regularly accessible to the public, then that part of the building or establishment would not constitute a “public building” subject to the mask requirement, although the client area is. The same would apply to the warehouse of the grocery store or other work areas where the public is not present.

Should musicians and actors be masked in places of entertainment?

It depends. If all performers or actors are vaccinated and separated from the audience by a space, physical barrier or ventilation, they will not need to be masked. Theaters and performance venues, like other public buildings, can also avoid having everyone wear masks by requiring proof of vaccination for all who enter.

How will the warrant be executed?

Businesses are the “first line of defense” in enforcing the warrant, the city said in a press release Tuesday, although the city also has a local health worker who has been appointed as a police officer to do so. apply the order. “This person will start with education to achieve compliance in response to any complaints,” the city said. The health worker will also have the ability to issue notices of violation, which may include subpoenas to appear in court.

What is the penalty for a violation and for repeated violations?

Violation of the ordinance is a civil offense punishable by a penalty as set out in article 1-15 of the City Ordinance Code. The code states that violating any municipal ordinance is punishable by a fine of $ 100 to $ 500 per violation. However, the city will focus primarily on education and voluntary compliance, a spokesperson said.

“Ideally, businesses and individuals will comply voluntarily and the need to issue tickets and impose fines will be limited,” city spokeswoman Jessica Grondin said in an email.

How do I report a non-compliant business or individual?

People can submit compliance complaints through the SeeClickFix mobile or web app, or by sending an email to [email protected]

Is the city doing something to provide masks to businesses?

Yes. City staff are ordering surgical masks and window decals that will soon be available to businesses in need. The city does not yet have a delivery date for the masks, but will contact the companies as soon as more details become available, Grondin said.

The city is also updating its ‘masks required’ posters and window decal signage, and businesses will be able to download digital versions from the staythecourse.me website and / or pick up window decals next week.

How long will the mandate last?

The board will review the order every 30 days and vote to cancel or extend the mask’s term for an additional 30 days. The city manager also has the option of issuing an executive order suspending the warrant if the seven-day average of new cases for Cumberland County falls to the US CDC’s “moderate” transmission level for a period of 10 consecutive days.

Bob Henke Chronicle: A New Years Story About Grapes And Other Things | Outside https://fuzerestaurantandlounge.com/bob-henke-chronicle-a-new-years-story-about-grapes-and-other-things-outside/ Sun, 02 Jan 2022 23:48:00 +0000 https://fuzerestaurantandlounge.com/bob-henke-chronicle-a-new-years-story-about-grapes-and-other-things-outside/ New Years Eve seemed stealthy this year.

New Years Eve seemed stealthy this year. All of a sudden it was there and I found myself in a bit of a rush to get all the rituals performed. Some of them are more difficult than others, both to perform and to remember. The ones that I seem to have absorbed come from very diverse backgrounds in that I am quite a mixed race both genetically and culturally.

The first and most common of these is to take loose change from your pocket and place it on a window sill. This is supposed to provide financial security in the New Year. As has always been a concern, I am quite religious about it – until this year. Around 11:30 am, I put my hand in my pocket and found it empty. I went through every pant that is currently in use and could not find any coins. I discovered three cents in the pocket of my current overshirt. I don’t know if that qualifies, but if the money fairies don’t like me this year, I suspect it will be hard to distinguish from normal.

The second important ritual is easier: not doing laundry on New Years Eve. I can assure you that this did not happen, even though I got quite muddy and had to dig through a new pair of clothes. work socks in the cellar. The same is true of a related superstition – not sweeping the dust on New Years Eve or New Years Day. Rest assured, I did not sweep or vacuum and, to be sure, I did. have not yet done so.

This week’s sightings show an “arc of mist” over Lake George.

Many of the ritual acts involve admitting you through the threshold. This one has always given me a hard time. The best person to be the first to walk in the door on New Years Day is someone tall and dark. The absolute worst is a blonde or a redhead. If that can’t happen, the person should at least be tall. Considering that three-quarters of my family were either blond or red and only the boy could be described as anything but stocky, it was always a challenge.

I am quite tall but MSB hair is not really considered dark. However, I find this one a little suspicious anyway because early on a New Years morning a guy about 6ft 4in with a full head of jet black hair and a bushy beard of the same color came over. Knock on the door. It turned out he was a bailiff informing me that I was being sued for $ 1.5 million.

You are also supposed to spill some milk on the ground for the fae. I can’t do it because the fairies would never be fast enough to beat the retriever. You can also drop some on the floor, which I handled by bringing warm milk to the geriatric cat. She rooted under the bowl as I tried to put it down, making enough of a mess on the porch to feed the whole fae establishment for quite a while.

One of my favorite New Years rituals is to eat 12 grapes, no more, no less for the whole day, which brings good luck for the next 12 months. Unfortunately this year although I went shopping on the 30th (another ritual is to make sure the pantry is well stocked), I forgot the grapes. What I had were two cans of fruit cocktail to be used in coleslaw. I opened both and found 11 green grapes. I topped this off with a raisin chosen the granola so we’ll see what happens.

If one depends on wild grapes to meet the demands of this New Year, it pays to be careful. This region and indeed all of North America and most of South America have native wild grape varieties. There are two subspecies which are most important in the east, Vitis labrusca, the fox grape, and Vitis riparia, the river grape. The first takes its name from the popular parable of the fox and the grape. The latter because of its preference for wetter lowland soils. Both are capable of great abundance. The Vikings called the northern coast of North America Vinland because of the enormous abundance of wild grapes. It is said that in the fall, you could sail to the shore following the scent of wild grapes.

In the parable, the fox was quite precise. The taste of wild grapes is nicely described as “tangy”. Some varieties are a little better after the gel opens certain cells, but they are really better used in things like cooked jellies. Colonial wild grape pie was considered a hit, although it wasn’t the word the kids used to describe the one I had made according to a century-old recipe. However, fox grapes were selectively bred to produce the modern Concord grape, which is used in most commercial grape jellies and juices. The American grape rootstock has been shown to be much more robust than the more delicately flavored European grapes and is therefore often used in the grafting of wine cultivars.

It is important to be careful with wild grapes, because in some areas there is a grape plant called moon seed. It doesn’t produce the huge vines of wild grapes, and it doesn’t have any of the many tendrils that wild grapes use to anchor to vertical objects. Moonseed berries are purple but usually in smaller clusters and somewhat smaller in size than wild grapes. The real defining characteristic is that instead of the three or four small grape seeds, moon seed berries contain a single crescent shaped seed. These seeds are highly toxic to humans and most domestic animals and can be fatal in fairly low doses. The good news is that while the grapes can be unpleasantly tart and sour, moon seed berries taste absolutely hideous, making accidental poisoning unlikely.

Another New Years ritual is to eat something circular while making a lot of noise just at midnight. In colonial America, it was often a cookie with a baked grape in the center and beating on drums or other noise generators. This year, I fulfilled the requirement by eating a donut while bellowing at the top of my lungs to try and wake the old deaf beagle to go out.

Happy New Year everyone. …
