Oh, there's a thought! Eskimo Joe's is the Land of the Midnight Sun version of Trader Joe's, which is the Pacific Islander version. Could be.
I'll read that article on Moderna in a bit - gotta make some phone calls now.
I hadn't heard that about Moderna's CMO, but I have heard about Fauci & Bill Gates both having major tie-ins to Moderna, which makes me want to put up some Pennsylvania Dutch hex sign as a protection against Any-thing that corporation is related to from affecting me and my family.
Freshman roommate was from Harrisburg. She and I had a hex sign in our dorm room. They were pretty popular around PA, WV, OH Amish gift shops, bookstores, fruit stands for a time. No idea these days, since I'm so rarely in that part of the country. What do you think, Mel - do you see them around?
This is a pretty good hex sign:
Double Trinity Tulips
The stylized tulip with its three petals is a dominate feature in Pennsylvania Dutch folk art. It is referred to as the Trinity Tulip and it symbolizes the Trinity as well as faith, hope and charity. The heart in this sign (as well as other Pennsylvania German folk art) is not the heart of sentimental "Victorian" valentines. Rather, it is religious in its representation of the heart of God, the source of all love and hope for a future life. The colors in this heart are used to give them additional meaning. Red symbolizes strong emotion and blue is used to indicate strength, especially spiritual strength. The white background symbolizes purity and the solid black circle represents unity in Christ.
