It’s once again an Australia Time Friday! It’s FRIDAY!!!!
Well, here in the USA it is… Seems that the perils of starting the wine before the posting have struck again ;-)
Well, one thing led to another…
The Loin Chops in iron skillet in the oven.
I tried cutting a large Yukon Gold potato into fingerling sizes and also cut some multi-color carrots (yellow, purple) into similar sized chunks, coated in olive oil, then piled it all around the chops.
That worked “OK”, but the carrots do not cook as fast as the spuds and chops, so larger bits were still a little crunch in the center or al dente… They likely would have been fine if cut to Julianne bits about 1 cm thick. But OK was ok.
A simple side salad of mixed Iceberg & Romaine lettuce, some black olive bits and a shredded cheese topper, with Ranch Dressing, completed the ensemble.
A very nice dinner indeed, thanks again to Australian Lamb. Yum!
I started the evening, a bit too early it seems, with the Frisk “Prickly Rosso”. As a mid-sweet wine it worked very well as an aperitif. I’d complained in a small way before that it didn’t really match up well with lamb. Stand alone and with appetizers that suited to a semi-sweet wine, it worked very well.
Later, with the lamb, I switched over to Barramundi Shiraz / Petit Verdot 2019. It did pair well with the lamb. I’d been so-so on one of their other wines in a prior posting, OK not great. This one was much better. I’m not going to characterize it as by then my palate was influenced by the sweetness and “a few” glasses of the prior wine. But I remember it as a nice flavorful red that matched the meal.
Then it was “suddenly tomorrow” and I’d not done this posting… Hey, it happens. We watched some TV shows and I did some computer time looking at RVs and videos about them and then went to bed. But the posting is here now ;-)
From the “If they ban it you know it must work really well” department:
The GEBs & Globalists running Australia have decided to BAN the use of Ivermectin for treating Chinese Wuhan Covid. Dr. John Campbell has a nice rant on that in comments in another thread (H/T YMMV):
Here’s a written form:
Ivermectin: Australian regulator bans drug as Covid treatment after sharp rise in prescriptions
Therapeutic Goods Administration concerned people taking controversial medication instead of seeking proper treatment or vaccine
Love the Stupid on display in that tag line. “seeking proper treatment”? You mean like going to the Medical Doctor who prescribed the prescription drug you are banning? “Controversial” you mean only because you in the Lame Stream / Yellow Stream Media have made it so? Wasn’t “controversial” at all when the creators got the Nobel Prize and it was put on the Essential Medicines list. Not “controversial” at all when handed out like Chocolates across Africa to cure River Blindness and several other diseases. Only “controversial” when folks found out a ZERO side effects drug would prevent and cure the Chinese Wuhan Covid Curse.
Australia’s drug regulator has banned medical practitioners from prescribing the anti-parasitic drug ivermectin for “off-label” uses, such as for treating Covid-19.
The move comes after prescriptions for the drug increased between three and four times in Australia in recent months.
The Therapeutic Goods Administration announced the ban on Friday afternoon, acting on advice from the Advisory Committee on Medicines Scheduling.
People will now only be able to get an ivermectin prescription for TGA-approved conditions, including scabies and certain parasitic infections.
Because, you know, having a professional degree in Medicine and being a practicing Doctor of Medicine for years isn’t nearly as competent as taking bribes while sitting behind a desk in government… /snark;
Ivermectin is not approved for use in Covid-19 in Australia or in other developed countries, and its use by the general public for Covid-19 is currently strongly discouraged by the National Covid Clinical Evidence Taskforce, the World Health Organisation and the US Food and Drug Administration.
Hey, they conveniently provided us a list of the corrupted organizations that they coordinate with! Thanks! /sarc;
Make a note of their names. Expect the Inversion Of Truth rule to work with their statements…
The TGA said it was concerned people who may have Covid-19 would take the drug rather than get treated, or some might take it instead of getting vaccinated.
Because going to a Medical Doctor to get a prescription is not a way to “get treated”?
The regulator was also concerned people taking advice on how to administer ivermectin could lead to people using it in unsafe doses.
“The doses of ivermectin that are being advocated for use in unreliable social media posts and other sources for Covid-19 are significantly higher than those approved and found safe for scabies or parasite treatment,” it said.
Because Australian Medical Doctors are not skilled enough to prescribe the correct dose? OR Australian Medical Doctors can’t read a PDR so instead get their dose information from Social Media? The Stupid, it burns…
On Friday, the regulator said there had been a three-to-fourfold increase in ivermectin prescriptions in recent months, leading to national and local shortages for its intended use.
“It is believed that this is due to recent prescribing and dispensing for unapproved uses, such as Covid-19. Such shortages can disproportionately impact vulnerable people, including those in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.”
Apparently, too, the Pharmacy Industry in Australia is unable to place orders for one of THE most widely and cheaply produced drugs in the world with MILLIONS of doses being handed out all over India. ONE State of India with about 10 X the total population of Australia is doing fine getting it by the train load. But poor Australia can’t find anyone capable of filling out new order papers with a larger size in the quantity column… /sarc; again…
With reasoning like that, clearly these folks have lost what little mind they had to begin with… OR… they are well and comfortably paid to crank out the lies and bugger all rules their owners dictate.
IMHO, of course.
