OK. I give. What's a Dutch Baby. I asked the cook, but she didn't know. Lowel
A Dutch baby pancake, sometimes called a German pancake, a Bismarck, or a Dutch puff, is a large American popover. A Dutch baby pancake is similar to a large Yorkshire pudding.

They gotta sink the Bismarck.
Bisquick or bismarck or both?
Hey Lowel, the big hen in the middle(jimmy) is a jungle fowl from the horse ranch and is almost 8 years old. Never laid a propper egg with an adequate shell. It does crow like a rooster in the morning which is not unusual for a hen to do. The other two are seabright bantams and they are getting 9-10 eggs each cycle. These are totally imprinted to our family and extremely tame. When laying eggs in our taken down christmas wreath by the front door they can be quite protective.
Haha! In this pandemic lifestyle you brought a smile to my face.
I have to work as I'm part of the "Critical Infrastrusture"
Behind the scenes and not customer facng but still the same in a "concrete bunker" data center with 50-100 others in the same boat taking calls and trying to help.
I'm also very high risk around 65 with heart issues like my brother and recently diagnosed diabetic at the beginning of the year. So hand full of pills several times a day like others in my family.
I also have a 60+ year old sister and 90+ year mom at home so if I do come do with it or have to be quarantined I'll have to find somewhere else to stay for 14 days maybe a "tent" in the back like some health care providers have been doing. Anyway based on the percentages if I get it I'm probably in the let die prognosis if it gets bad. As it doesn't look like this thing is going away anytime soon, I have to mentally prepare for that moment which is kind of weird as I was looking forward to retirement soon which also looks postponed with what happenned to the economy.
The world has gotten pretty weird lots of panic as most business never prepared for working from home or having to fire or layoff all their staff. Lots of panic and anger from owners and big shots who never had to do the grunt work but now must actually pay the bills and payroll.
You learn allot about people in a time of crisis, lots of folks found reasons got doctors excuses of why they have to stay sheltered while others in worse shape put all that aside and put their responsibility to others ahead of themselves. I'm very proud of members of my team who find a way to come in everyday and not only tend to others but celebrate the experience.
Allot of businesses may not make it of this goes on through summer and the world will be signifcantly different when it does as this will leave a scar deep in everyone's psyche going forward as many will be touched in one way or another by its effects human and economic.
Stay safe and do your best to make it through yourself as well as with all your friends and family but try and take care of those around you may not personally know who are in the high risk catagory and maybe very scared and feel isolated right now. It's a societal changing moment that could go from something good to very bad with bad being having to make decisions that the old and weak must die because of our lack of preparedness.

And as we get throuh this, it should be "lessons learned". Two things to remember; Follow the guidelines (this virus doesn't do well when you wash your hands). And; Don't repeat rumor. Recently I was told that a doctor had it in a Medical Clinic and had to notify patients to self isolate and watch for symptoms. Same clinic I go to. Rather than repeat that rumor, I called someone who worked at the clinic. I was informed it was not their clinic, but instead a County Health Clinic in another part of the county 40 miles away.. Had I said something about it at the grocery store or the service station in my small town, I could have instilled panick and fear in others. I'm not saying "mums the word", but don't repeat unverified info. Don't be a local CNN or MSNBC. (Aka MSLSD).
Sadly I am also seeing fear-mongering here in Florida. And the usual political opportunists. And the news media is not helping either. I see interviews on TV later reported in the media and wonder if the reporter was at the same interview.
It is disturbing to see that in the face of a crisis we can't find a way to come together at least briefly.
I'm confident we will get through this, but it sure would be done more easily and faster if we were all on the same team.
All the best to you boys. Can't wait to get back in the water.
Personally I'm always ready to learn, although I do not always like being taught. - Winston Churchill
Agree 100% about the media. While most people I see are really putting politics aside to come together and help each other, they are still playing the same old games to keep division alive. I basically stop watching the news when anyone but the doctors are speaking. Sad and infuriating for sure, since this is the exact time the press should be helpful and useful.
