Community News El Torito Putting the Taco in Your Tuesday or Wednesday or Thursday…. By CANDICE MERRILL Published on Monday, April 27, 2020 | 4:28 pm Name (required) Mail (required) (not be published) Website I don’t know about you but I am so sick of cooking. Sometimes I just want a nice Mexican dinner and drive through will not do. Let’s talk tacos and Margaritas, ole! Specifically El Torito’s Family Fiesta Packs featuring all the fixings for a terrific taco in the comfort of your own home.Available for pick up or delivery, El Torito’s Family Fiesta Packs includes your choice of protein (chicken, steak or carnitas), your choice of tortillas (corn or flour) rice and either refried or de la olla beans.

You can get that too, with pitchers or single margaritas, fruity or not. And it’s all available for delivery or pick up.My taco package came with tender, grilled, white meat chicken. It was nicely seasoned and had a wonderful smokey flavor. I took a warm tortilla and filled it with chicken, lettuce, cheese, pico de gallo, and a dash of cheese. A pool of beans and a scattering of rice completed my meal. Very fresh, super yummy, almost like going to a restaurant again.There’s plenty of food to feed a family of four to six.

Oleksii Liskonih/iStockBy JACQULINE LAUREAN YATES, GMA(RICHMOND, Va.) — Virginia has now become the fourth state to put an end to cosmetic animal testing and sales of animal-tested cosmetics.Gov. Ralph Northam signed the Humane Cosmetics Act, which prohibits cosmetics manufacturers from conducting or contracting for cosmetic animal testing in Commonwealth areas in or after Jan. 1, 2022. The law will also ban the sale of cosmetics that have been tested on animals for profit.California was the first state to prohibit animal-tested cosmetics in 2018. Nevada and Illinois enforced similar laws in 2019.Virginia’s ban is a part of a larger effort to stop animal testing on a federal level. Rep. Don Beyer, who represents Northern Virginia suburbs, announced in a tweet that he would be reintroducing federal legislation to make it standard across the country.“This fantastic news illustrates a growing momentum in efforts to end unnecessary testing on animals in the United States and around the world for products like shampoos, mascara and lipstick,” The Humane Society of the United States said in an online post. “Consumers are scanning labels and demanding products free of animal testing, cosmetics companies are listening to them and changing their practices, and lawmakers are solidifying these changes into permanent policy.”Several other states including New Jersey, Maryland, Rhode Island, Hawaii and New York may also pass similar laws.On a global scale, efforts made by Humane Society International and its partners have resulted in 40 countries as well as member states such as European Union, Australia and Guatemala passing laws prohibiting or limiting cosmetic animal testing.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.

This week’s guruThe force won’t be with you if you’re overweightGuru will be watching with interest changes to policing in the UK followingpublication of the Police Reform Bill, which the Home Secretary hopes willboost efficiency and cut crime rates. He is interested in how other countries are developing their police forcesto boost the performance of officers. In India they are taking thetransformation process quite literally. Police authorities have told overweightofficers to lose weight or risk losing a month’s salary. “The size of a policeman’s belly has a bearing on the crime rate. Unfitpolicemen have no place on the force. They can’t chase criminals if they can’twalk properly,” said Allahabad’s superintendent of police RK Vishwakarma. German men get fringe benefits Working for the civil service is a demanding job. Grappling withlegislation, dealing with endless reams of bureaucracy and prudently budgetingpublic cash is no walk in the park. That’s just in the UK, so spare a thoughtfor civil servants in Germany, where the Teutonic quest for organisation andefficiency is relentless. It’s a situation that would have Guru pulling his hair out, which isprobably why German male civil servants are entitled to state support for wigsfollowing a landmark ruling. Before the decision by the federal court of administration, only women wereentitled to free wig funding. But in a landmark boost for equality, the fringebenefit has been extended. It overturns a previous ruling that was accused ofsplitting hairs when denying folically challenged men the right to wigs funds. Post-industrial name change Will Hutton and his merry band have finally realised they have been workingunder a misnomer. There is no point in being called the Industrial Society whenthe UK hasn’t been able to describe itself in that way since the mid-1970s. So, those clever types are trying to come up with a new name. The frontrunner is The Work Foundation. Although it sounds like a dirty process in theconstruction industry, it has to be better than the pretentious Latin names somany are favouring (Demos, Amicus and the less well-known Ideas’r’us). Considering that the whole UK workforce will be working in customer serviceswithin five years, Guru thinks the Crazy Call Centre Collective might be moreapt, or at least the Post-Industrial Society. Got any ideas we can forward to Mr Hutton c/o Guru? Paying the price for poor grammarStaff at Nottingham City Council andjournalists at a Swiss newspaper will be watching their spelling, punctuationand grammar after their employers announced plans to fine them for makingmistakes.Graham Chapman, council leader at Nottingham Council wantsstaff to pay into a swear box for such grammar crimes.And journalists at Le Temps newspaper in Switzerland are up inarms over an editor’s plans to fine them E3.4 euros (about £2.15) for spelling,punctuation and factual errors.The hacks have called a meeting to discuss the measure, whichthey call “childish and authoritarian”. Guru is relieved there hasnever been a question mark over his spelling but he would like to see a fullstop to this approach to schoolboy errors. GuruOn 12 Feb 2002 in Personnel Today

When he’s not holding things down on the rhythm for Phish, beloved drummer Jon Fishman maintains a pretty low-key and wholesome life. His family lives on a sustainable farm, and now, they’re getting ready to open up a store where they currently reside, in Lincolnville, ME.According to a report in the Penobscot Bay Pilot, Fishman and his wife Briar Lyons purchased the Lincolnville General Store in 2011, but wound up selling it to another family to focus on making their farm profitable. When the other family renovated the store, the Fishman family put in an offer and wound up buying back the property. Now it’s theirs once more.Working with a consultant Ladleah Dunn, the Fishmans have been hard at work on their new General Store, and plan to open it in March of 2017. Dunn talks about the vision of the store, saying, “The long and the short of the General Store is that it’s going to be a true general store. You can come in and get tampons or toilet paper or dish soap or a kicking lasagna to take home and heat up.”The focus is on organic and store-made products, including prepared foods and condiments. Since the Fishmans have five children, they can understand the importance of an all-in-one store, and the Lincolnville General Store aims to be just that. The property will also feature an outdoor porch area, WiFi, and a brick oven pizza stop for residents to come and chat. They’ll also work with local businesses to ensure that they aren’t stepping on anyone’s toes, and are planning to break into groceries and delivery services for the elderly and handicapped townspeople.“Most markets don’t just sell their own stuff,” said Briar. “It takes the community to stock the shelves and we will be working with not only local farmers, but local bakers, local artisans and craftspeople.” This sounds like an incredible business, and we wish the Fishman family nothing but success on this new venture!
