Why not in 'hazmat' outfits since it has been in outer space and contains foreign matter (assuming I know correctly what the image is of).

The guy behind the woman may well be equipped in hazmat , has a big backpack. But it seems they were more careful about any unexploded charges releasing the parachute.

Here's more from a questionable(?) source (alleged to be CNN): https://www.aol.com/news/watch-nasa-spacecraft-drop-asteroid-121517761.html Added info such as the 'clean room' precautions, chute collection, etc.

Our local weather is nice in contrast to yours and Paul's.  Touch above seasonal norms, dry-ish, and very light to moderate breezes. Air quality (pollution) has varied though with the particulate from fires in the confederacy and/or the unfreezing north. Bicycling has been very nice, IOW.

Turkey Tails aka Pope's Noses

A friend of mine asked us over for some tastings of various tastes and I am so looking forward to his Pope's Noses. We're not sure where the name comes from but I'm guessing it has the same root as when asked 'Do you want ice cream? you reply 'Does the Pope have a nose?' Back around 1600 being a Pope was a family thing for Medicis and at least one of them was known to have a notable nose, broken in a fight? Anti-Catholic sentiments derisively named similar looking tail ends of chicken and turkeys that way though they turn out to be most delectable, especially with various tastes or just beer when you're watching football.

Double-check and remove any of the quill tips still stuck, there always is at least one missed by the butcher in the round bulbous gelatinous fatty cartilages of the ... Pygostyle, scientifically speaking ... generously dust them in your favorite spices ... salt, pepper, garlic, some hot peppers, roast in 400F oven for an hour or so dripping fat from a grid until they're nice and crispy.

[Wikipedia: The pygostyle is the main component of the uropygium, a structure colloquially known as the bishop's nose, parson's nose, pope's nose, or sultan's nose. from which the tail feathers would have been attached.]

Alas, it was not to be. We arrive and are greeted by their habitually underfed Weimaraner tied to a radiator with a short leash, looking extremely uncomfortable and guilty. Orpheus, son of Omega, is being punished for inhaling all of the Pope's Noses during a moment of inattention.

We have to make due with slices of honey comb and sharp cheddar without the main course.
