Andrey Guryev — who’s vice prez of Russia’s union of chemists, so he should know one thing — sails round Antigua in Alfa Nero.

So, guys: Even in the event you simply have some little dinghy, drop it within the water.

Biden. He now will get kerfuffled about whether or not he’s in Sioux Metropolis or Jersey Metropolis. Looks as if through the years the Instances simply obtained away from him — as has The Submit, the Information, the Staten Island Advance, the Chicago Tribune, and so forth. Too unhealthy.

Hamps warmth up

Oceanfront Hamptons dwelling rents yearly low season for $50,000. Identical gent all the time leaves Could 1. The proprietor mentioned this 12 months he’ll refund half — $25,000 — and desires the home again April 1. Lawyer renter: “The governor mentioned no one will get evicted for a minimum of 90 days. I’m staying till July.”

It’s getting ugly on the market. Hampton Jitneys and buses throwing on the brakes. Now it’s cramped Volvos or SUVs known as Personal Rides. So, shove that outdated $49 fare. To go to from right here to that space’s closed eating places or shut retailers, the schlep’s now $250.

No motion anyhow

Sniffing down on us, Sweden’s saying no curfew, no quarantine, no nothing of their nation and everybody/anybody can rush round there at will. Huge effing deal. Like civilization’s dashing to downtown Stockholm. Nothing’s in that entire freaking nation within the first place. See what? Purchase what? Cheese slicers? A wood knife?

Maintain good habits
