Some Facts About the Corona Virus

Johns Hopkins University has sent this excellent summary to avoid contagion, share it because it is very clear:

* The virus is not a living organism, but a protein molecule (DNA) covered by a protective layer of lipids (fats) which, if absorbed by the cells of the ocular, nasal or mouth mucosa, changes their genetic code. (mutation) and converts them into multiplier and attacker cells.

* Since the virus is not a living organism but a protein molecule, it is not killed, but decays on its own. The disintegration time depends on the temperature, humidity and the type of material in which it is found.

* The virus is very fragile; the only thing that protects it is a thin outer layer of fat. That’s why any soap or detergent is the best remedy, because the foam BREAKS THE GREASE (that’s why you have to rub so much: for at least 20 seconds or more, and make a lot of foam). By dissolving the fat layer, the protein molecule disperses and breaks down on its own.

HEAT melts the fat; then use water above 25 degrees to wash your hands, clothes and everything else. In addition, hot water produces more foam which makes it even more useful.

* Alcohol or any mixture with alcohol greater than 65% DISSOLVES ANY FAT, especially the external lipid layer of the virus.

* Any mixture with 1 part of bleach and 5 parts of water directly dissolves the protein, breaks it down from the inside.

* Hydrogen peroxide helps a lot after soap, alcohol and chlorine, because peroxide dissolves the proteins of the virus, but you have to use it pure and it hurts the skin.

NO BACTERICIDES. The virus is not a living organism like bacteria; one cannot kill with antibiotics what is not alive, but rapidly disintegrate its structure with all that has been said.

* NEVER shake used or unused clothing, sheets or clothing. While it is glued on a porous surface, it is very inert and disintegrates only between 3 hours (fabric and porous), 4 hours (copper, because it is naturally antiseptic; and wood, because it removes all moisture and does not let it detach and disintegrates), 24 hours (cardboard), 42 hours (metal) and 72 hours (plastic). But if you shake it or use a duster, the virus molecules float in the air for up to 3 hours and can settle in your nose.

Viral molecules remain very stable in external or artificial cold like air conditioners in homes and cars. They also need moisture to remain stable and especially darkness. Therefore, dehumidified, dry, warm and bright environments will degrade it more quickly.

* UV LIGHT on any object that may contain it breaks the virus protein. For example, to disinfect and reuse a mask is perfect. Be careful, it also breaks down collagen (which is a protein) in the skin, eventually causing wrinkles and skin cancer.

* The virus CANNOT go through healthy skin.

* Vinegar is NOT useful because it does not break the protective layer of fat.

NO ALCOHOL or VODKA. The strongest vodka is 40% alcohol and you need 65%.

We will continue to go outside for exercise and to town when we need to buy things.  Our small town is not afraid and is getting very close to defying the governor’s directive that is destroying our local economy.  That governor is a democrat…  SURPRISE!

Nanna’s Buttermilk Cornbread

This recipe was sent to us by one of our customers she told us when a young girl she remembered her grandmother (Nanna) making this and it is delicious. After trying it we would have to agree.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups cornmeal
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar or honey
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 1 large egg

Prep Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Place a greased 10-inch cast-iron skillet in the oven. * We used bacon grease
  2. In a large bowl, combine cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together buttermilk, egg, and 3 tablespoons butter. Pour mixture over dry ingredients and stir using a wooden spoon spatula just until moist.
  4. Remove the skillet from the oven and add the batter into the hot skillet. Place into oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool 5 minutes.
  5. Serve warm.

* note- We served this with our Chili Recipe and it was fantastic we also used bacon grease to grease the pan

Survival Chili Recipe

This is my daughter’s recipe for what she calls survival chili. When I inquired about the name she said because you have enough of the ingredients to last 10 years. I’m sure she’s exaggerating maybe a year or so. No matter it is pretty good. Hope you enjoy it. The meat used is from Survival Cave Foods but just about any canned or fresh beef, pork, or, wild game will work

  • 2  16 oz. cans kidney beans drained
  • 1  14.5 oz. can beef
  • 1  15 oz. can dice tomatoes with juice
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder or to taste
  • 1/4 tsp cumin or to taste
  • 1/8 cup cornmeal set aside

Combine all ingredients except cornmeal in cooking pot cook on low for about 20 minutes then add the cornmeal a little at a time to thicken let simmer for another 20 minutes stirring occasionally.

If chili is too thick add a little water to thin

Serve with cornbread or by itself even if you’re not in survival mode this meal is really good. See our cornbread recipe
