Andrew Cuomo, New York State’s Governor, seems about as sane and down-to-earth as anyone in government can be. Considering the damage to New York from COVID 19, he’s done about as well as anyone could have done, or at least that’s the way it seems.

Crushed chocolate – a delivery tragedy

In the meantime, his broth Chris and his weirdo wife — well, here’s a clip from the New York Post:

If you thought the antics of CNN blowhard Chris Cuomo could get any more cringe-worthy — his wife, Cristina, has put together a list of preposterous privileged preparations she used to battle COVID-19, including a vitamin IV drip, Peruvian tree bark, and bleach baths.

“Cristina, who herself was diagnosed with coronavirus last week, posted an eye-popping blog titled “The Cuomos’ Corona Protocol” on the website, saying, “Here’s what I did to push it out over the week,” adding this is “an opportunity to learn how to keep the immune system up.”

Proving herself to be the Gwyneth Paltrow of herbal medicine, Cristina’s list of supplements not exactly accessible to the common consumer include “Peruvian bark … essential to oxygenate the blood”; glutathione powder, an antioxidant; the medicinal florals xanthium — used to combat allergies and which some Chinese herbalists warn is toxic — and magnolia, used to reduce anxiety and inflammation; plus viracid, which includes black elderberries to boost the immune system.

… In what reads like a piece from The Onion, Cristina adds, “Both days, I added ½ cup of Clorox to my bathwater to combat the radiation and metals in my system and oxygenate it.” Adding a small amount of non-concentrated bleach to a bath is said by some to rid the skin of bacteria. However, doctors say the smell of bleach can trigger asthma and other breathing problems, and it is not recommended for skin with open cuts.

Now Chris Cuomo’s teenage son Mario has coronavirus.”

Who does their grocery shopping? I’m having trouble getting bread and fruit juice, or for that matter, fresh fruit. I haven’t had these kinds of cravings for food since a long-ago pregnancy. Last night there was nothing on earth I wanted more than a bacon and tomato sandwich. Garry concurred. He had two. I had one. A bit of mayo and voila! A sandwich to die for.

I was trying to figure out how to save it, but eventually gave up and tossed it.

Now I am waiting for a chocolate cake. I ordered the chocolate from Amazon — Ghiradelli, the good stuff. They ran over it with their truck so there’s another one on the way. Maybe I’ll make a white cake today. Or better yet, a lemon cake.

Afterward, I can promote it as yet one more yummy way to prevent catching the virus. You don’t even have to create a frosting made of bleach.

I can sell my recipe (I have to create the recipe first), but I used to be good at this until I gave up baking to save myself from morbid obesity. Now, it doesn’t seem to matter as much. I haven’t worn anything except sweat pants for months.

  1. Ghirardelli is the best chocolate for baking! I use their cocoa powder for all kinds of treats!


  2. I have no way of contacting wp to let everyone know I got the blue screen if death. I won’t be online for as bit. Depends on how much damage is done, the errors are changing every time they pop up. My son’s only buy it could be two days depending, and I have to re upload everything. Every program, or buy a new windows. Adams trying to get into safe mode but not having any luck so far. So see you when we see you. Take care. C

  4. There are some really strange ideas out there, Marilyn. Amazon seems to be a great on-line shop in the USA. I have only ever bought books from Amazon UK and Amazon USA. I didn’t know they had all these other products.

    • They started out as a book and music store and the rest just grew. Now they are struggling to meet deadlines, which shouldn’t be much of a surprise. Most of us can’t get a normal food list at our regular grocery stores. Until they can find a way to get the deliveries back to normal, the stores won’t be normal either. The big cities are getting better service. Little towns like this one, not so much.

  5. Someone should tell the lady there’s no way of sterilizing skin and you really wouldn’t want to. The thought of taking a bath in bleach sounds horrendous.


  6. They ran over your chocolate with their truck? O_o Um. Now that’s a reallly really new one on me. Here’s hoping you get some more (gratis of course, the shipping company should pay IMHO), and get your cake. May I compliment you yet again on your attitude and fortitude during this mess? I heard on the radio today that they’re hosting a benefit for New Jersey. Double O_o … Why not include Massachusetts in that? You guys have had it just as bad..


  7. Fortunately we don’t seem to be having these crazy celebrities here giving bonkers advice, however the cravings i can completely relate to!!


  8. “bacon and tomato sandwich a bit of mayo and voila! A sandwich to die for” so very well put!!

  9. When I first saw Andrew and Chris Cuomo together, I thought they were funny. I still like the Gov, but Chris and his wife…. I am so sure Christina wears sweats, just like you and I, Marilyn. Only after her bleach baths she pops into Peruvian hand-loomed organic linen sweats. You know–from Amazon. Just like you and I. Right.
