Reports from in vitro studies suggest that ivermectin (Stromecrol) ivermectincanada.com acts by inhibiting the host importin alpha/beta-1 nuclear transport proteins, which are part of a key intracellular transport process that viruses hijack to enhance infection by suppressing the host’s antiviral response. In addition, ivermectin docking may interfere with the attachment of the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) spike protein to the human cell membrane. Ivermectin is thought to be a host-directed agent, which may be the basis for its broad-spectrum activity in vitro against the viruses that cause dengue, Zika, HIV, and yellow fever. Despite this in vitro activity, no clinical trials have reported a clinical benefit for ivermectin in patients with these viruses. Some studies of ivermectin have also reported potential anti-inflammatory properties, which have been postulated to be beneficial in people with COVID-19.

Whole Lotta Crunch

A Whole Lotta Crunch

We Found The BEST Ever Granola!

It’s soft, fresh, delicious and made right here on  Cape Cod

Whole Lotta Crunch

Recently, we visited the Bass River Farmers Market in South Yarmouth and tried A Whole Lotta Crunch  Don’t let the name fool you! This is not old box store granola AT ALL!  Just FRESH, MOIST, DELICIOUS Granola! It is the best we have ever had and worth a visit to the farm market or better yet just order online from wherever you are!

A Whole Lotta Crunch is an all natural, wholesome snack.  Have it mixed with berries and cereal, create your own  fruit and yogurt scrumptious parfait. We even sprinkled some on top of a sliced banana for breakfast, or just munch on some plain as a snack or late night  treat.

Oats, Dates, Raisins, Sliced Almonds, Wheat Germ, Cinnamon Dried Cranberries, Shredded Coconut  are just some of the Yummy ingredients that make this product absolutely Yummy!  Do we dare mention it’s good for you too!

Owner Valerie Stone has created a niche for her products and with some luck and perseverance Kids Muchin’ and Crunch Granola will be in Whole Foods in the near future! In the meantime you purchase the product on Cape Cod or by ordering directly through her website.

Try the Gluten Free Just Crunch and Monkey Crunch. These products are available at several Cape Cod outlets as well as the Bass River Farmers Market on Thursday’s and Saturdays from 9am – 1pm through the fall. 

Ivermectin je liek, ktorý sa v súčasnosti používa na liečbu parazitických infekcií, ako sú črevné červy, vši a roztoče.
Ivermektín by mali používať iba pacienti s ochorením COVID-19 ivermectinkupit.com vo výskumnom prostredí ako súčasť klinického skúšania.
Štúdia in vitro ukázala, že ivermektín znižuje počet vírusových RNA spojených s bunkami o 99,8 % za 24 hodín. Štúdia in vitro je, keď študujú bunky v laboratóriu a nie v živom organizme.
Na ľuďoch boli vykonané klinické skúšky s cieľom otestovať, ako dobre ivermektín funguje proti COVID-19. Toto je testovanie in vivo . V súčasnej dobe existuje nízka úroveň istoty, či ivermektín pomáha pri liečbe COVID-19, a sú potrebné ďalšie štúdie.

Appetizers, Lobster and More Overlooking The Provincetown Harbor

Recently, we visited The Lobster Pot Restaurant in Provincetown.   We had some great appetizers and lobster and of course wine! Owner and Chef,  Tim McNulty has established an exceptional menu, service and atmosphere for the restaurant. Luckily, our recent visit was before the busy tourist season to come. So relax have a glass of Cabernet or a Lobster Pot signature cocktail! 

Lobster Pot Provincetown

Here are a few appetizers we recommend  next time you decide to take the ride to Ptown!

Lobster Avocado Cocktail  – Meat from half of a 1 1/3 pound lobster, diced avocado and mango, sweet pepper vinaigrette and tarragon mayo. This was delicious!

Soft Shell Crab – breaded and fried served with garlic butter on parmigian toast. The light salad toppings and light creamy dressing were a unique added top off to this dish. Perhaps we should have ordered two!

Brunch was also served on Founders Weekend at The Beach House Grill.  We walked the long buffet tables and choose some of our favorites that included Eggs Benedict, potatoes, bacon, fresh fruit, and a new favorite fresh fish with a apple-mango salsa that was soo good we had to try to make this at home ourselves. Of course we had Mimosa as what would any fantastic brunch be without a Mimosa or Bloody Mary.

Chatham Bars inn

There was plenty of beach time, relaxing on the patio off the veranda with the fantastic  view and blue-green water that we experienced on this perfect blue sky day! We took a little nap before the Roaring 20’s Gatsby Party and enjoyed the view.

The Champagne and wine were flowing and we totally enjoyed the evening of fine cocktails, dinner and dancing and topped it off with a nite-cap on the veranda!  We can’t wait to go back!
