Some very impressive 'holidays there Tex. As to the why, for some reason around this time, there's a surge in chroniton particles that may cause people to relieve certain events in a loop. It can be broken, although the method varies depending on each situation.

We have a 40% or less belief in that. A lot less. Unless a rodent living in a hole in the ground has been imbued with some mystical powers about Mother Nature. Color us, skeptical.

***** Texas Saturday Breakfast *****

Have A Taco Day! Are you ready for some Saturday Breakfast, still All-Fresh? Bring out the Drones! The NewTexas Happy Taco Stands, in conjunction with the NewTexas Incendiary Corporation, has approximately 1 trillion of the fastest, lightest drones you have ever seen. This fleet is specially designed to deliver tacos to every man, woman, child, whatever, in Texas, all 2,292,261,000,000 of you.

Today's special breakfast will Saturday Mashed Potato & Egg & Cheese Breakfast Tacos [COVID-19 Week CXCIV Edition]! The Head Chef is still kicking butt and taking names on his mission to raise the humble breakfast taco into the range of haute cuisine. And, once again, it is going to be super simple. The NewTexas Abuelas y Abuelitas have been scrubbing, peeling, and boiling potatoes all night just so they can rough-mash them with fresh NewTexas Creamery butter and cream. The ubiquitous boatload of scrambled Texas Grade A, farm-fresh, Organic Eggs is whipped up in the ginormous black cast-iron skillets. The whole thing comes together by smearing on a healthy schmear of mashed potatoes on a fresh homemade flour tortilla made by hand just for you. A heaping-helping spoonful of scrambled eggs is ladled in and just before closing it up a good-size handful of a mild Texas-made Longhorn Jack cheese is thrown in and Esto Listo! Remember, a whole egg in every taco!®

Today's Special Salsa is - Doña Angelita Salsa - a fiery green one! This is so simple, it is roasted jalapeños, roasted garlic, a touch of oil, and a pinch of salt. So creamy you will think it has cream in it! The taco is hermetically sealed in a Stay-Warm® pouch that is wrapped in the same ol' aluminum foil we are all so familiar with for our breakfast taco. We are trying to keep it real, peeps. For your beverage accompaniment, a packet of Sanka, Tang and a Lipton Tea bag will be included with every delivery as well as salt and pepper and a napkin. Yes, it is different, but it works and you do not even have to leave your residence. Woo! And, watch out for the drones! Start your day off the right way; munch out and go back to sleep. You know you want to!®

Stay Safe Texas. Stay Well. Hang in there!

Went to the National Aquarium (Baltimore) today with family. While they had some good exhibits, I certainly prefer the Monterey Bay Aquarium

Sir, why do you prefer the Monterey Bay Aquarium over the Baltimore National Aquarium despite the good exhibits in the Baltimore National Aquarium?

The Baltimore Aquarium has good exhibits, I liked how you could see the tanks from various levels without much trouble. Monterey is bigger than Baltimore and has a Kelp Forrest & a Sea Otter Exhibit which are quite popular.

Mmmm, kelp! 🍙

***** Texas Saturday Breakfast *****

YaHootie! Are you ready for some football, erm, Saturday Breakfast, Las Vegas-Style? Saturday Breakfast In Place time! Bring out the Drones! The NewTexas Happy Taco Stands, in conjunction with the NewTexas Incendiary Corporation, has approximately 1 trillion of the fastest, lightest drones you have ever seen. This fleet is specially designed to deliver tacos to every man, woman, child, whatever, in Texas, all 2,420,580,000,000 of you.

Today's special breakfast will Super Bowl Breakfast Saturday [Las Vegas Edition][COVID-19 Week CXCV Edition]! The Head Griller at the NewTexas Happy Taco Stands has been up all night grilling genuine NewTexan Waygu Filet Mignons by the crapton to help you get the real over-the-top Las Vegas experience. While Las Vegas is not typically known for its tacos, they can make a mean one and this is it. We are presenting you with the ultimate Super Carne Asada and Egg! This burrito-sized taco contains expertly grilled beef filet meat, grilled onions, and grilled jalapeños. The Head Griller is not the only one up all night, the Big Tex Abuelas y Abuelitas have been up all night frying too, in this case, Big Tex brand Chorizo! We make this tangy, spicy sausage from genuine Texan whole hogs, vinegar, and chili powder. Just that simple. The Abuelas lightly brown it in the ginormous cast iron skillets of doom until it is crumbly and looks like a bright orange oil slick. Most of the grease is poured off and the chorizo is merged with sautéed sliced mushrooms which also quickly turn orange. These golden treats are then slowly introduced to the ginormous cast iron cauldrons of queso that have been slowly blooping for days. Esto Listo: ChoriQueso! To build your Super Bowl Taco To End All Tacos, brown, organic, Grade AA NewTexas Hatchery eggs are flash-scrambled in the poured-off chorizo grease and layered on top of a boatload of thinly-sliced, perfectly medium-rare filet mignon that that are carefully-placed to cover the fresh flour tortilla made by our very own Texas Abuelas multiple times daily. Then we bring on the ChoriQueso to cover it all and finish with a sheet of 24K gold leaf before it is all rolled up and sealed. For a special treat, the super secret Big Tex Bisabuelas have whipped up a little sumptin'-sumptin' extra for you today, a Golden Cinnamon Sugar Churro, also wrapped in 24K edible gold leaf. Can we get a Woot, Woot! The drones will be straining today to haul this Super Fare to you, just for you.

Today's Special Salsa is Super Bowl Texas Three-Fer again this year - Salsa Roja & Salsa Verde & Choriqueso! The Salsa Roja is so simple, it is virtually Pico that is cooked down. Nothing to it really - ripe red Roma tomatoes, white onion, serrano, cilantro, and salt. The Verde takes a little more work but is simply a spicy green sauce made from tomatillos and serrano chili peppers and onion and garlic. The Choriqueso, on the other hand, is a spicy cup of hot melted cheese and spicy Big Tex brand chorizo, roasted poblano peppers, caramelized onions, and a touch of cilantro on top. The tacos are hermetically sealed in a Stay-Warm® pouch that is wrapped in the same ol' aluminum foil we are all so familiar with for our breakfast taco. We are trying to keep it real, peeps. For your beverage accompaniment, a packet of Sanka, Tang and a Lipton Tea bag will be included with every delivery as well as salt and pepper and a napkin. Yes, it is different, but it works and you do not even have to leave your residence. Woo! And, watch out for the drones! Start your day off the right way; munch out and go back to sleep. You know you want to!®

We forgot to mention, that the Texas Chat website is currently down, along with other significant portions of the internet (EA, for example). They assure us that they are working on it. Thank you for your patience.

Interesting. The place I work lost all our VPN and remote access capabilities sometime last night. I wonder if those problems are related.

I wondered about that, I tried a few times to log in and it wouldn't load the site.

We're still down. Just to make life more interesting, we have some subscription based software that quit working over complaints that it cannot phone home to verify the license.

Our editors are learning by doing thing on alternative software by Black Magic Design called DaVinci. The gnashing of teeth is... amusing.
