6:45am: Sunday Sunday Sunday….. we didn’t sleep.  Insomnia.
We feel sh*tty this morning. We tried to sleep a bunch of times,
but we couldn’t get comfortable, and we couldn’t fall asleep.
Now it’s time to feed the dogs and do the morning stuff.

183621497_10225140098913408_7709998714562238998_n

7:30am: We took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs.
We took the dogs outside again. We got the newspapers.
We drank a little cran-raspberry juice.
No coffee yet, because we still feel sh*tty.
And we’re back in the Home Office with the dogs now.

Take Time to Smell The Roses! (copyright 2013 JoshWillTravel)

11:50am: We went to bed and slept for a couple hours and now we feel better.
We took the dogs outside. We made an iced espresso. We surfed the interweb.
We made our Mother’s Day phone calls and now we have the long Sunday ahead.
And it’s a beautiful day outside today. Maybe we’ll swimming in the cement pond:
pool

11:15pm: Recapping Sunday. We didn’t do anything important.
We didn’t even Blog today. But we did call our Mom again.
We took a nap. We took the dogs outside.
We slept some more, because we didn’t sleep last night.
We watched “Bar Rescue” all day on TV. (co-created by one of our ex-clients)
We surfed the interweb and watched youtube vids.
We took the dogs outside. The dogs got fed. We took the dogs outside.
We ate two toasted mini-bagels with cream cheese and a small dill pickle.
We fell asleep. We woke up and took the dogs outside.
Now were all chilling’ in the Home Office again.
And we need to eat something, like dinner. Leftovers we don’t want to waste?

On The Menu: Leftover Thai food. 2 BBQ spareribs and some twice fried rice.

We got the newspapers. We drank a cup of espresso and ate two toasted croissants.

10:10am: We drank another cup of espresso and took the dogs outside again.
The housekeeper just arrived and she is going to clean. So we are going to hide.
We are chillin’ in the Home Office with the dogs now. Happy Monday.


On this day in 1954, Bill Haley and The Comets released
“Rock Around The Clock” (the theme from “Happy Days”) – A VERY BIG HIT IN 1955!
Here they are appearing on the “Ed Sullivan Show” on August 7, 1955:

One, two, three o’clock, four o’clock, rock
Five, six, seven o’clock, eight o’clock, rock
Nine, ten, eleven o’clock, twelve o’clock, rock
We’re gonna rock around the clock tonight
Put your glad rags on and join me, hon
We’ll have some fun when the clock strikes one
We’re gonna rock around the clock tonight
We’re gonna rock, rock, rock, ’til broad daylight
We’re gonna rock, gonna rock, around the clock tonight
When the clock strikes two, three and four
If the band slows down we’ll yell for more
We’re gonna rock around the clock tonight
We’re gonna rock, rock, rock, ’til broad daylight
We’re gonna rock, gonna rock, around the clock tonight
When the chimes ring five, six and seven
We’ll be right in seventh heaven
We’re gonna rock around the clock tonight
We’re gonna rock, rock, rock, ’til broad daylight
We’re gonna rock, gonna rock, around the clock tonight
When it’s eight, nine, ten, eleven too
I’ll be goin’ strong and so will you
We’re gonna rock around the clock tonight
We’re gonna rock, rock, rock, ’til broad daylight
We’re gonna rock, gonna rock, around the clock tonight
When the clock strikes twelve, we’ll cool off then
Start a rockin’ round the clock again
We’re gonna rock around the clock tonight
We’re gonna rock, rock, rock, ’til broad daylight
We’re gonna rock, gonna rock, around the clock tonight
(written by Max C. Freedman and James E. Myers)

William John Clifton Haley, Jr. (aka the “Father of Rock and Roll”)
born July 6, 1925, Highland Park, Michigan, US
died February 9, 1981, Harlingen, Texas

Other songs by Bill Haley:
“See You Later, Alligator”, “Shake, Rattle and Roll”,
“Rocket 88”, “Skinny Minnie”, and “Razzle Dazzle”

Also on this day in 1910, Halley’s Comet made its closest approach to Earth!


5:00pm: Hey it’s FIVE O’CLOCK. We waited for the housekeeper to leave.
We took the dogs outside and we spent the afternoon chillin’.  One more week.
We took the dogs outside again. And the day went by relatively quick.
So, we just took the dogs outside again and now we’re back in the Home Office.
We haven’t eaten anything today, except for those croissants,
and we prepped some food and it’s waiting in kitchen. So let’s eat!

5:25pm: We ate. Meatless Monday. Okay.
On The Menu: Two toasted cheese sandwiches on sourdough.
And an iced espresso to drink. Drink Coffee. Drink Water. Eat Cheese.
184895988_4741346465891882_1824455710944196451_n

8:30pm: We got woken up from our nap by our cel phone…. F*CK.
We fell asleep after we fed the dogs. We took them outside before and after.
And then we crashed out for almost an hour an half with the dogs. F*ck.
So we’re almost awake again now.

11:05pm: Same news all day long. Blah blah Blah blah Blah.
We took the dogs outside again. We thought about food.
We didn’t eat. We made an iced mocha. Iced mocha lot.
And we took the dogs outside again. It’s a nice cool night in the SFV.
Maybe tomorrow we’ll go out and do some errands.

edddd
Guess what happened today? HAHAHAHAHA.
We got the mail, and we got some mail from the CA EDD.
We couldn’t get through to EDD on the telephone, so we emailed our contact at our Assemblyman’s office who helped us with our Claim problem (see our previous Blog Posts about Filing for California Unemployment, the Employment Development Department FAILS, and the criminal activity by Bank of America and their Executives). JUST TOTAL FRAUD.
But the Assemblyman’s staffer has a direct contact at EDD and helped us again!
We needed to Backdate our Claim, because we were originally late to file….
and today we received the claim forms for the weeks that needed claiming!
In fact DUPLICATE CLAIM FORMS! And they were weekly, instead of bi-weekly,
so we got FOURTEEN envelopes from EDD today,
with 14 claim forms, 14 cover letters, and 14 return envelopes.
184210541_4741347979225064_1858232460840437283_n
AND THEN WE CERTIFIED ONLINE!!!!! Paperless.
Because the payments get mailed faster.
MORE WASTE. MORE BAD MANAGEMENT! AND JUST PAR FOR THE COURSE.
WE DON’T HAVE THE FUNDS ADDED ELECTRONICALLY
TO THE BofA BANK CARD BECAUSE OF BofA AND OTHER FRAUD!

BIG THANKS TO CA ASSEMBLYMAN JESSE GABRIEL FOR ACTUALLY HELPING HIS CONSTITUENTS! BIG THANKS TO OUR CONTACT IN HIS OFFICE FOR SAVING US!


DO NOT TRAVEL! STAY THE FUCK HOME AND STAY HEALTHY!

NOTE: The CDC made a significant change to their COVID-19 guidelines last week.
Anyone infected with COVID-19 can spread it, even if they DO NOT have symptoms.
COVID-19 is aerosolized and can be transmitted at distances greater than six feet!

COVID-19 IS SPREAD IN THREE MAIN WAYS:

  1. Breathing in air when close to an infected person who is exhaling small droplets and particles that contain the virus. Inhalation of air carrying very small fine droplets and aerosol particles that contain infectious virus. Risk of transmission is greatest within three to six feet of an infectious source, but the virus is aerosolized and can be transmitted at distances greater than six feet (and in any poorly ventilated or enclosed space).
  2. Having these small droplets and particles that contain virus land on the eyes, nose, or mouth, especially through splashes and sprays like a cough or sneeze. Deposition of virus carried in exhaled droplets and particles onto exposed mucous membranes (“splashes and sprays”, such as being coughed on). Risk of transmission is greatest close to an infectious source where these exhaled droplets and particles are concentrated.
  3. Touching eyes, nose, or mouth with contaminated hands that have the virus on them. Touching mucous membranes with hands soiled by exhaled respiratory fluids containing virus or from touching inanimate surfaces contaminated with virus.

Cases of reinfection with COVID-19 have been reported, but are rare​.​
And COVID-19 can spread from people to animals in some situations.
Pet cats and dogs can become infected after close contact with infected people.

And the FDA approved the Pfizer vaccine for children 12-15 years old today.
Now we wait for the CDC to agree and say okay. Get them all vaccinated!

12:30pm: We don’t want to be here today…. still home.

How’s the weather in your neck of the woods?

We’re tired. We’re exhausted. We keep getting woken up by loud noises.
The housekeeper came today. That’s why we’re locked in the office.
And there’s a constant stream of people on our street this morning:
walkers, joggers, kids on bikes, dog walkers, and it’s also trash day.
We drank a cup of espresso and ate a handful of peanut M&Ms.
Drink Coffee. Drink Water. The dogs got fed and went outside.
We got the newspapers and brought in the trashcans.

NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER NO! NO-NO-NO-NO-NO!
WE MUST COMPLETELY SEPARATE CHURCH AND STATE!
“Religion is the opiate of the masses”
“Die Religion … ist das Opium des Volkes” – Karl Marx
Full translation of the actual quote:
“Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world,
and the soul of soulless conditions. It is the opium of the people”
– Karl Marx, 1843


NATIONAL DAY OF REASON? (Nope. Wrong Nation.)
– a cause, explanation, or justification for an action or event.
– the power of the mind to think, understand, and form judgments using logic.
– what is right, practical, or possible; common sense.
– to persuade (someone) with rational argument.
– find an answer to a problem by considering various possible solutions.

It’s NATIONAL BEVERAGE DAY! Have a tasty beverage.

5:30pm: We slept all afternoon with the dog. And we got the mail.
Only got woken up once. Still tired, but better. And still bitter about the noise.
We made an iced espresso. Now its tiime to feed the dogs supper.

7:20pm: Ordered dinner for pickup. The dogs got fed. The dogs went outside.
We didn’t eat all day. Except for the peanut M&Ms…..

It’s NATIONAL CREPE SUZETTE DAY
Invented by Henri Carpentier in 1895 at the Maitre at Monte Carlo’s Cafe de Paris.
The French dessert consists of fresh made crepes and a sauce made from butter, sugar, orange juice, orange zest, and a flaming liqueur like Grand Marnier or Orange Curacao.
When set on fire, the alcohol quickly evaporates, and the sauce thickens and caramelizes.

It’s WORLD PASSWORD DAY.
Protect your Passwords! PRACTICE ONLINE SECURITY!

6:35am: WTF is the deal with the morning news today? Don’t call it news.
MORNING “News” TV IS JUST TERRIBLE IN LOS ANGELES!
Rambling weather people, chatty anchors, endless entertainment reports, cooking segments, blatant advertising/promotions disguised as news or travel pieces, fashion shows, contests…..
BUT NOT MUCH REAL NEWS. But hey, love that viral video from Ohio! That’s news we need.

Sunday is Mother’s Day. Mexican Mother’s Day is Monday.
ANOTHER SUNDAY PARTY WE WON’T BE ATTENDING!

COVID-19 is the leading cause of death in the United States.

as of today.
62100+ Reported Deaths in California from COVID-19 as of today
52000+ Reported Deaths in New York from COVID-19 as of today
(these are the reported numbers, the true numbers are much higher)
INDIA IS IN TOTAL CRISIS. THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC IS OUT OF CONTROL.
NOTE: People are still arriving in the United States from India everyday!

7:45am: The dogs went outside and got fed. We got the newspapers.
We drank a cup of espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.
We made another cup of espresso and a toasted bagel with cream cheese.
The dogs went outside again. It’s gray morning, but it’s going to be beautiful later.

Time for some “Top Chef: Portland” (a recorded episode)
And “Last Chance Kitchen” too.
AND WE REALLY HATE THE COMMERCIALS!

8:55am: WTF? What is going on with Washington DC?
Turn on the news, read the news, see the news, and it’s all stupid.
Still selling THE BIG LIE. The GOP Traitors are going to cancel Liz Cheney.
WHY AREN’T THEY IN PRISON FOR SEDITION AND TREASON?

4:10pm: We took the dogs outside. We played with the dogs.
Choreboy did a load of laundry and put away the clean dishes.
We had the dogs in the Home Office for awhile. And now they’re napping.
We just posted our previous Blog Post “Part 159 – Cinco de Mayo” just now.
And we are waiting…. and waiting…..

6:22pm: We ordered a Thai food delivery for dinner. We wanted Chinese but the line was too busy, and that means they were too busy…. it’s Friday night. So we ordered Thai instead.
On The Menu: 1/4 Thai BBQ chicken combo, BBQ sparerib combo, and a chicken satay appetizer…. no mee grob again. BOO. So we ordered pad Thai noodles and fried rice sides.
183875168_4733121930047669_3308038145623240014_n

Good Shabbos everyone!
Recapping Friday night: Nothing happened.
We watched TV and surfed the interweb.
We fell asleep and woke up around 3:00am on Saturday.

Paul Van Doren, co-founder of VANS, has died at age 90. RIP
May the Four Winds blow him safely home.
He moved to Southern California in the 1960s and founded the Costa Mesa-based shoe company with his brother James, who died in 2011 at age 72. They started with $250,000 and sold their company in 2004 for $396 million to VF Corp.

Saturday, May 8, 2021
Tomorrow is Mother’s Day!

8:00am: We woke up around 3:00am and we were awake until dawn.
We can’t sleep. Anxiety. Insomnia. Can’t turn off our brain. Too Much Information.
We took the dog outside in the dark, and then he went back to bed…. we tried.
No luck, so the dogs got fed and went outside. It’s Saturday morning.
THINK WE MIGHT TAKE TODAY OFF. We drank a cup of espresso and some OJ.
Drink Coffee. Drink Water. Drink OJ.

3:00pm: SIGH. We may have gone to bed for a couple hours.
We woke up and  took care of the dogs. Then we waited….
And then Choreboy cleaned out the fridge and folded the laundry.
(and later on, Choreboy scooped all the poop, too)
We took the dogs outside. We hung out with the dogs in the Home Office.
We took the dogs outside again. We got newspapers and the mail and the packages.
We tried to take a nap, but no dice. So we drank an iced espresso, and here we are.

The Long Beach Convention Center and the LA Fairplex at the Los Angeles Fairgrounds in Pomona are now being used to house and contain unaccompanied migrant children from the border with Mexico.  Both already have incidents of COVID-19 cases.

The criminal GOP Traitors in the Trump administration
MUST BE PROSECUTED FOR TREASON, SEDITION, INSURRECTION,
CRIMES AGAINST CHILDREN, 
CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY and GENOCIDE!

Recapping Saturday afternoon, evening and night.

“SQUAWK! SQUAWK” said the Hawk.
“Oh, Oh, Hell No!” said the Crow
and the crow chased the hawk out of the tree.
(this just happened in the backyard)

We were outside with the dogs, and then without the dogs. The dogs got fed.
And nothing happened. We hung out with the dogs.
We watched TV and surfed the interweb. Eventually we ate some frozen pizza.

“VEGAS BABY! Vegas.” – way too many people from all over the USA in Las Vegas.
Saturday night and there’s almost no sign of a deadly pandemic now….183967025_4735339423159253_7602778537911722602_n
Most restrictions and safety procedures have been removed or just plain ignored.
Masks are “optional” in public now. And the crowds have returned to Las Vegas.
There’s not much social distancing, and people are eating and drinking in public.
Get that money machine running again. Business is BOOMING again.
Gotta get that stimulus money from the suckers.

On The Menu: Frozen pizza. It’s not delivery….. it’s not good pizza.
Even after sprucing it up, it’s just a frozen pizza.

DO NOT TRAVEL! STAY THE FUCK HOME AND STAY HEALTHY!
Do not go to movie theaters, musical performances, shopping malls,

dance parties, sporting events, Las Vegas, or any kind of public gathering!

COVID-19 Cases are Extremely High. Avoid Events and Gatherings.
COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, and deaths are extremely high across the United States. To decrease your chance of getting and spreading COVID-19, CDC recommends that you do not visit with people who do not live with you at this time. Attending events and gatherings increases your risk of getting and spreading COVID-19. Stay home to protect yourself and others from COVID-19.
– from the CDC Website Updates as of April 27, 2021

TAKE this for what it is…. CONTRADICTORY!
ZERO CONTACT IS THE ONLY WAY TO BE SAFE!
If you can still infect someone and catching COVID-19 is still possible, and you should keep wearing your mask, because herd immunity is still far away…..2022.
HOW IS IT OKAY TO VISIT WITH FAMILY & FRIENDS (in small groups without masks)?

GET VACCINATED if you haven’t yet!
*FULLY VACCINATED means TWO WEEKS after the second dose! 

You are not fully vaccinated after the first dose,
and you are not fully vaccinated until TWO WEEKS after the second dose.
TWO WEEKS AFTER THE SECOND DOSE!
Vaccines don’t stop you from spreading the virus!
Vaccines may protect you from getting really sick,
and may prevent death if you contract COVID-19.
YOU CAN STILL GET SICK AND DIE.
YOU CAN STILL SUFFER FROM LONG-TERM EFFECTS.
YOU CAN STILL GET OTHER PEOPLE SICK.

9:25am: We woke up early. The dogs went outside and got fed.
We got the newspapers and drank a cup of espresso.
Drink Coffee. Drink Water. Drink Tequila. When is Cinco de Mayo?
We ate a toasted bagel with cream cheese. And now it’s Wednesday.

cinco de mayo

We got dressed and took a little trip to Pomona today.
Had to pick up a really cool poster.
183439227_4725522294140966_5308957741415718797_n

So we got in the car and drove there and back. 
We left at 11:00am and it was a pretty easy drive with almost no traffic.
We got to our friend’s house and got the poster. Outside and masked.
And then we drove home, more traffic this time, coming back at 12:30pm.
But we made good time, stopped at the Post Office, and then went home.
BABY STEPS. It was HOT. It was bright. There was a lot of motion.
We haven’t made a drive that long (distance and time) in almost a year.
Very important to pay attention and remember you’re going 70mph….
we saw the Highway Patrol in our rearview in Pasadena on the way out,
and another one on the way back. And people were jamming when they could.
We took it easy, had a nice uneventful drive there and back, and got the poster.  

We got home, changed back to our comfy clothes, and took a nap.

And then there was another really short pursuit!
Dude footbailed and ran about a block, then tried to play it off like it wasn’t him, and he was just walkin’, until the officer pulled up and pointed the gun at him. Suspect in custody:

Drink. Drink. Drink Tequila. 
Tequila is a distilled beverage made from the blue agave plant,
primarily in the area surrounding the city of Tequila 65 km northwest of Guadalajara,
and in the Jaliscan Highlands of the central western Mexican state of Jalisco……
With 100% agave tequila, blanco or plata is harsher
with the bold flavors of the distilled agave up front,
while reposado and añejo are smoother, subtler, and less complex.
As with other spirits aged in casks, tequila takes on the flavors of the wood,
while the harshness of the alcohol mellows. – wikipedia

Jim Hayes RIP 
jim hayes RIP
“To die, to sleep, To sleep, perchance to dream?
For in that sleep of death what dreams may come…
When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,
Must give us pause, there’s the respect,
That makes calamity of so long life”

My old friend Jim Hayes has passed.
We were walking partners on Security, and party buddies RPFN, RPFS and Dickens 83-94…. before I was swallowed up by Hollywood. He was a great friend and he taught me a lot. He kept me in and out of trouble. He was a vet, a proud patriot, and a gun lovin’ liberal! We had tremendous fun “back in the day” and I am very sad that he is gone.
Another one bites the dust…. F*ck Cancer!
Safety meetings in Heaven brother. RIP
He stomped on the Terra.
May the Four Winds blow him safely home.

Did you see the report on the CALL BOTS? TOTAL FAIL!
Now you need to pay someone to call the EDD for you, using a computer program,
if you want to get through and speak to the EDD – if not you won’t get through.
CALL VOLUME EXCEEDS THE EDD’s CAPABILITIES TO RESPOND!
And if you do get through, the service people aren’t trained to help you!
EDD HASN’T IMPROVED ANYTHING! THEY ARE LYING!
BofA is committing criminal fraud and holding people’s money!
Instead of wasting time trying to call EDD,
CALL YOUR CONGRESS PEOPLE, THE GOVERNOR’s OFFICE
AND YOUR CALIFORNIA STATE REPS! PRESSURE THEM TO ACT!

2:00pm: Recapping Monday morning:
We woke up early at 7:00am. The dogs got fed. The dogs went outside.
Newspapers, mail, check. The housekeeper came and we went back to bed.
We woke up. We went back to bed. We waited for the her to finish and leave.
We took the dog outside. And then we went into the kitchen.
Not ready for real food yet today.
On The Menu: An iced espresso and a donut.
We drank a cup of espresso and ate a donut around 8:00am too.
That’s all.

7:20pm: Okay, recapping Monday afternoon and evening now.
We took a nap with the dog, and we slept. And we woke up.
We took the dogs outside. We drank an iced espresso.
We took a shower. We played with the dog. We took the dog outside.
The dogs got fed. The dogs went outside on both sides.
We made another iced espresso. NOTHING HAPPENED TODAY.

We finally ate something.

10:55am: Good morning. May the Fourth. Dave Brubeck Day! TAKE FIVE!

11:20am: We woke up. The dogs went outside and got fed.
The dogs went outside. We went back to bed. We woke up.
We drank a cup of espresso and a little orange juice.
It’s NATIONAL ORANGE JUICE DAY!
Drink Orange Juice! Drink Coffee. Drink Water.
And we took the dog outside again.
We got the newspapers and the mail. It’s a beautiful day in the SFV.
Going to be HOT. Might hit 90 degrees later. And now we’re hungry.

11:55am: We ate a toasted cheese sandwich on sourdough
and made an iced espresso to drink.


NATIONAL CANDIED ORANGE PEEL DAY
Strips of orange peel cooked in sugar syrup until they are soft and chewy.
They can be sugar coated or dipped in chocolate for extra fun.

Candied Orange Peel

Ingredients:
3 Oranges – navel or Valencia
2-1/4 Cups Sugar (granulated)
1-1/8 Water
Sugar for coating and/or Chocolate for dipping (optional)

Directions:
Prep and Blanche the Peel:
Rinse  and clean three navel or Valencia oranges.
Cut the top and bottom off each orange. Score the skin into quarters.
Remove the skin (both peel and pith). Cut into strips about ¼” wide.
(eat or save the peeled oranges for other use)
In a medium saucepan, place the strips of peel and cover with cold water.
Blanch the peels: Bring the water to a boil. When the water boils, drain the water from the orange peel strips. Rinse in fresh cold water. Repeat at least two more times.
Blanching removes any bitter flavor in the orange peel. (TIP: Blanch the peels 4-5 times).
Drain the water and place the peels in a bowl.

Sugar Syrup:
Use the same saucepan, and whisk together 2-¼ cups sugar and 1-⅛ cups water.
Bring the mixture to a simmer over a low heat.
Cook 8-9 minutes at a constant simmer, adjust the heat, and make sure it doesn’t boil.
Add the orange peel. Cook about 45 minutes to 1 hour on medium-low heat, until the white pith is translucent (not white), adjust heat as needed – maintain the simmer, keep from boiling.
Swirl the pan occasionally to make sure that all of the peels get covered with syrup.
DO NOT STIR, this will cause crystallation.
Drain the cooked syrup from the orange peels – (set aside and save for another recipe).
Toss the peels in a bowl of sugar to coat, or dip in melted chocolate and let set. (optional),
Transfer to a drying rack. When they are dry, store them in an airtight container.


1:30pm: FUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCK

2;30pm: We took the dogs outside again.
And there was a steady stream of visitors to our door today beyond the Postman,
Even the water delivery guy who usually comes on Wednesday, is here right now.
NOTE: We have a new water guy, who we just met. Seems like a very nice fellow.
But people are so annoying sometimes. REALLY!

BIRD DAY! – “Shhhhssshhh! You’ll wake the damn birds!”
Charles Almanzo Babcock, the Superintendent of Schools in Oil City, Pennsylvania,

We used to have great travel adventures. Motorhome trips, ski vacations,
Yosemite, Hawaii, Four Corners, a BiCentennial Tour of the east coast
(Washington DC, Philadelphia, Colonial Williamsburg, Connecticut),
family trips to Chicago and Palm Springs and New York, Big Sur,
San Diego, there was a Dude Ranch, and fishing trips, and Las Vegas……

And our family co-owned a beach house in Ventura, California, just below Rincon, too.
So we would often “weekend at beach” on the coast north of Los Angeles.

NOTE: My father was one of the Executive Producers and my brother and I were drafted as unpaid actors (extras) to appear in the scenes with the “kid roles”. We met Buddy Hackett and visited the Old Lincoln Heights Jail location in Downtown Los Angeles back when it was really scary! I also spent a lot of time in the Production Offices, visited the set, watched and learned about the film editing/post production process, and attended the “premier screening” of the film.

So, Dad also did some movie deals, and was involved in some other film productions.
He also helped a good friend get a job (and his foot in the door) at 20thCenturyFox.
That friend went on to become a big-time Hollywood studio executive and producer.


  • And that’s enough for now. We’ll continue this another time.

Now they are in the bedroom chillin’.
6:15pm: We drank some juice and time passed. Today went by pretty quick.
We watched the news and surfed the interweb. We played with the dogs.
We ate a toasted bagel with cream cheese and a few pita chips.

7:45pm: And then we picked up dinner, brought it home, and ate!
On The Menu: Cuban food! Roasted garlic chicken with onions, white rice,
black beans, and fried plantains. With an iced coffee to drink. Full again.

and now we’re in the Home Office chillin’ again with them.

National Raisin Day (sun-dried grapes) – “I heard it through the grapevine”
California raisin growers promoted the first National Raisin Day in 1909.

1:30am: Why are we still awake?

8:50am: It’s Friday! Our shoulder hurts.
We didn’t sleep much. Tired but not sleepy.
We finally went to bed at dawn after taking the dogs outside.
And we woke up more than once…. and then it was 8:00am.
We took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs. We took the dogs outside.
We drank a cup of espresso Drink Coffee. Drink Water.
We ate a toasted bagel with cream cheese.
We got the newspapers and brought in the trashcan that stayed out all night.
It’s beautiful outside already. Going to be really sunny and hot here today.

AND DISNEYLAND (and California Adventure) RE-OPENS TODAY!

11:15am: Okay, we drank another cup of espresso after we woke up.
We went back to bed for a little bit, and might have slept a little too.
We also drank a little juice and a lot of water. And we got the mail.
Our shoulder hurts (an annoying pain) at the injection site. 

LISTEN REGGAE MUSIC! Get Ready! Rocksteady! Jah, Mon!
We just got sucked in by Toots and the Maytals today.

Time to take the dogs outside again on this gorgeous and sunny day.

11:50pm: And we’re back. We took the dogs outside and let them enjoy the sun.
Now we’re back in the Home Office and it may be time for us to take another nap.
We were wearing sunglasses and it was still really bright out….
and it’s HOT in the SFV. 90 DEGREES Fahrenheit right now.

12:30pm: We did our civic duty and registered for Jury Duty today.
Citizen JoshWillTravel (now that we are vaccinated)
We were summoned for Jury Duty in January, but we postponed.
Not during a CoronaVirus pandemic (even if we probably wouldn’t have to serve) 
And not going to Downtown Los Angeles (because there’s a courthouse nearby)
AND THEY EXTENDED THE DEADLINE FOR “REAL ID” until 2023.
We stood in line at the CA DMV in Summer of 2020 to get our Real ID license.
Read about it in our previous Blog Post back in the CoronaVirus Diary. F*CK.

Our JoshWillTravel Blog is truly

Visits from Six Continents! And it’s still early in the day.
We don’t normally check, but we did today.

2:55pm: And we are awake again. We went down hard and took a nap.
Still tired. And our shoulder is still sore. We took the dogs outside. Still HOT.
We put them in the bedroom and then made an iced espresso. 

WHERE ARE YOU GOING?
179125958_4706685179358011_1551979164637536556_n

6:30pm: We took another nap. Woke up and it was time to feed the dogs.
The dogs are fed. And we took them outside on both sides.
And now they’re chilling’ with us in the Home Office on Friday night.
We made another iced espresso. Feeling tired and not feeling great.
And we iced our shoulder earlier, so it’s still sore, but feels a little better now. 
We haven’t eaten today, so we are going to go make a nice dinner in just a bit.
But first we must play with the dogs…… such good boys.

8:20pm: We made some dinner. And then we ate dinner. Good Shabbos!
On The Menu: BBQ beef bowl w/sautéed onions; a dill pickle, celery & carrot sticks,
and the rest of the iced espresso to drink. Not hungry now.

9:30pm: We took the dogs outside again. It’s a beautiful night in the SFV.
There’s a puppy licking my foot under the desk right now…. yeah Friday night.

We got reactions, Las Vegas Livestreams, and Smoke and Scan II tonight.

5:00am: We woke up early. We may have slept a little. Everything was ‘wonky’ yesterday.

7:00am: We decided to feed the dogs early. So we took them outside.
And the dogs got fed. And they went outside again. And then we put them back to bed.
We drank a cup of espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.
Our shoulder is still sore. We still feel “Meh” but no serious side-effects to the second dose.
{KNOCK WOOD) And hopefully there won’t be any long-term effects to the vaccine.
Didn’t sleep well last night or yesterday, and so, we’ll probably go back to bed pretty soon.
But first, we are watching “Top Chef: Portland – Last Chance Kitchen” episodes.
And it’s making us hungry (of course).

Ripped this:
Betty Botter bought some butter but she said this butters bitter
so she bought some better butter better than the bitter butter
and she put it in her batter and it made her batter better. 


Recapping Saturday afternoon and evening. 
We took a nap, or tried to take a nap. M#THERF*CKER!
TV, Interweb, Youtube, and whatever…. just a blur.
And then it was midnight. So tired of being angry…..

Still “Safer-At-Home”
And one more Saturday night

Sunday, May 2, 2021 – Sunday! Sunday!

“Life, like a cookie jar, would soon be empty
if you continued to accept the good things it offers
and put in no good things in return.”

4:20am: We woke up at 2:30am. We fell asleep sometime last night after midnight.
Saturday Night Live was on… that’s how we know.
So we’ve been up for almost two hours. And we didn’t eat dinner last night.
We ate a toasted pepper jack cheese sandwich on sourdough bread around 3:00am.
And we just remembered we have a piece of cheesecake waiting in the fridge!
181735401_4714358338590695_4819122047946355907_n
4:50am: Drink Coffee. Drink Water. Eat Cheesecake.
We went and got the cheesecake and made a cup of espresso.
On The Menu: Chocolate Cheesecake (from The Cheesecake Factory
So, yeah, breakfast?

9:20am: ANCHOR’S AWAY! We have liftoff. SUNDAY MORNING.
We drank a cup of espresso and a little orange juice.
We went back to bed around 6:00am and slept a little,
and then we got woken up more than once. FUCK.
The dogs got fed. The dogs went outside. Newspapers are inside.

12 Days and counting.
TWO MORE WEEKS UNTIL WE ARE FULLY VACCINATED!
NO! WE AREN”T COMING TO YOUR HOUSE PARTY TODAY!
And you shouldn’t be having another party today. NO FUCKING PARTIES!
Your last party with people outside your bubble didn’t kill anyone,
so why not potentially expose your guests again? Get them all sick today.

11:45am: We woke up. We took the dogs outside.
We drank another cup of espresso and ate a toasted bagel with cream cheese.
And we just took the dogs outside again. It’s another BEAUTIFUL day in the SFV.
Not too hot today…. but we’re having a heatwave later this week:Screen Shot 2021-05-02 at 11.46.24

3:15pm: We tried to take a nap., and we slept for almost ONE hour.
We took the dogs outside again. And the neighbors are having a party next door.
Look for another surge in cases in two weeks….. or maybe just go to Disneyland.

169447459_10157655937785899_396149497511911004_n

6:35pm: We ate some salted peanuts and a banana.
The dogs got fed. The dogs went outside. The dogs are happy. 

7:05pm: And we just found out an old friend is in the ICU with Lung Cancer.
F*CK! F*CK CANCER! See out previous Blog Post. F*CK.F*CK.F*CK.
“Please Visualize him breathing on his own. Bathe him in golden healing light.”
Screen Shot 2021-04-28 at 04.24.31

11:00pm: We were watching the TV and surfing the inter web,
and working on this Blog Post.
We were watching A&E’s WWE story on Randy “Macho Man” Savage (who was once our guest when we promoting nightclubs at the KeyClub and Plush Room on the world famous Sunset Strip) and then the WWE hunt for lost treasures. (Jerry Lawlor and Andy Kaufman)
Then we stopped and made a nice dinner.

On The Menu: Ginger beef with sautéed onions, steamed broccoli and carrots,
roasted red potatoes, with a ghost chili BBQ sauce, and a coke to drink
181605398_4716589401700922_957238934664267848_n
So good. We’re so full.
And then we played with the dog, and now he’s asleep on the bed.
Such a good doggie!
And we’re watching another WWE Lost Treasures (Undertaker and Kane episode).
Here’s the thing, we never watched WWE Wrestling.
We used to watch Lucha Libre and local Saturday morning Wrestling from the Olympic Auditorium in Downtown Los Angeles. Old School Wrestling, long before it was a big cable TV thing. Hector and Chavo Gurerro! Los Angeles was top or tier, the Big Show in wrestling, so all the big names in wrestling were here for television. Rowdy Roddy Piper, Andre the Giant, etc.

And then there was a piece of Benes’ Bakery Princess Cake for dessert….
now we are so full again.

5:00pm: Hello again. We watched some Youtube. We did some personal grooming.
We were thinking about shaving off our “quarantine” beard,
so instead we just gave it a good trim. And we cleaned it up again.
Looking good now. And no one will see.
We almost went to the market this morning and the bank this afternoon,
but we said NO, and stayed the fuck home with the dogs. BORING. But safe.

We watched TV, surfed the interweb, and fell asleep with the dogs.
We woke up around 3:00am, and took the dogs outside.
Then we put the dogs back to bed and updated this Blog Post.

4:30am: Wednesday morning early. We’re awake now. Maybe hungry.
We took the dogs outside, and then put them back to bed.
Thinking about coffee. Trying to decide whether we’re going back to bed now.

7:30am: NOPE. We didn’t go back to bed. We worked on our Blog Posts.
We drank a cup of espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.
And now it’s time to feed the dogs and get something to eat.

94640151_3616574528369087_6029142800837115904_n

1:00pm: We took the dogs outside. The dogs got fed. We took the dogs outside.
We got the newspapers and the mail. We made another espresso.
We tried to bake a recipe we saw online that looked easy and interesting.
Ice Cream Bread
2 mugs of vanilla ice cream (melted)
1-1/2 cups of flour
Mix into a batter, Bake in a loaf pan at 350 for 40-45 minutes.

It did not end well. We might try it again, but not right away.
We took the dogs outside again. it’s a gorgeous day in the SFV!
We scooped the poop, and took the dogs outside one more time..
And we just made lunch.
On The Menu: Toasted bagel with lox, cream cheese, and lettuce; dill pickle,
celery & carrot sticks, and an iced espresso to drink

We spent the afternoon with the dogs. We went outside again.
And we took a nap after that.
The gardener, pool guy and the exterminator all came today.

3lpow-Pp
Tomorrow is President Joe Biden’s 100th Day in Office.
6:10pm: President Joe Biden’s Address to Congress. 100 DAYS.
We have the dog’s supper ready to go, but we are watching the speech now.
“MADAME SPEAKER, MADAME VICE-PRESIDENT” – History!
“GO GET VACCINATED!” (if you haven’t yet) – “A dose of Hope.”
I hate the whisper tone, and the stories are kinda boring.
Hooray Healthcare! Hooray for cutting Child Poverty!
New Jobs! Economic Recovery. RECORD GROWTH after RECORD DECLINE.
“Build Back Better” – Infrastructure. YAY! YAY SCIENCE! Yay Government.
Selling the AMERICAN JOBS PLAN. YAY CLEAN WATER! (lead pipes are bad)
Yay high-speed internet. YAY KAMALA HARRIS! Modern Clean Power Grid? Yay.
Women in the workforce. Childcare. Elder Care! Medicare. Do you care?
YAY CAREGIVERS! “Jobs, Jobs, Jobs” to fight Climate Change. Electric Cars!
Farmers! Wind Turbines made in “Pittsburgh instead of Beijing” Batteries!
“BUY AMERICAN!” – Create American Jobs!
“A blue-collar blueprint to build America” – The Middle Class, Unions!
$15 Minimum Wage! Equity for Women. Equal Pay!
Research! TECH! END CANCER! “Doing nothing is not an option.”
China. Autocrats. American Families Plan. Education. Childcare (preschool).
YAY Dr. Jill Biden! Medicare! Lower Drug Prices! Healthcare! YAY!
TAX CORPORATE AMERICA AND THE WEALTHIEST 1%! YAY!
SLAMMING THE TRUMP AND GOP TAX GIVEAWAY TO THE RICH NOW!

“Grow the economy from the bottom and the middle out.”
Okay we have to feed the dogs now. But it was a good speech.
And President Joe is still going. Foreign Policy. Allies. Global Economy.
Continued to watch the speech, sort of, in the kitchen, while feeding the dogs.

7:44pm: We took the dogs outside. And we fed the dogs.
And we took the dogs outside again. then we reheated some pizza.
On The Menu: Three slices of leftover sausage and meatball pizza. Yum.
And a Coke to drink. It just seemed like a thing tonight. Pizza and a Coke.

And then we watched the GOP LIAR (and hey, he’s an African-American too)
Tim Scott is a lying GOP TRAITOR! He stood next to Trump. HE IS LYING!
His, “I was a poor black child” was disgraceful (AND RACIST).
Glad he called himself an “Uncle Tom”. It’s like a “Chapelle Show” skit.
“UNCLE TIM” is TRENDING ON TWITTER!
Lying. Lying from a script. His Grandfather would whoop the sh*t out of him!
AND FUCK YOU MITCH MCCONNELL AND THE GOP TRAITORS TOO!

FUCK YOU RUDY GUILIANI! Hope you forgot to scrub you hard drive.
The FBI served search warrants on Rudy this morning! LOCK HIM UP!
The Feds also seized a computer belonging to Giuliani’s assisant Joann Zafonte,
and she has been subpoenaed to testify before a federal grand jury next month.
“They also raided the home of another Trump “lawyer” today, Victoria Toensing,
who along with Giuliani was also knee deep in the Trump-Ukraine scandal.”
LOCK THEM ALL UP! 573000+ Reported US CITIZENS ARE DEAD!
TRUMP AND THE GOP TRAITORS DID THIS! Crimes Against Humanity!
And they are guilty of Treason, Sedition, Felony Murder, and Genocide!


Thursday, April 29, 2021 – NFL Draft Day 2021!

6:45am: It’s Thursday. All day.
We woke up just before 3:00am. We were awake for a little bit.
We took the dogs outside. And then we all went back to bed for an hour.
We woke up and took the dogs outside again. We set up their breakfast.
We cooked a bunch of chicken breasts, chopped them up, and froze them.
We reheated the last four slices of leftover pizza and ate them.
We got the newspapers. And now it’s time to feed the dogs.

DISNEYLAND (and California Adventure) RE-OPENS TOMORROW!

Disneyland Fireworks!

11:20am: We took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs.
We played with the dogs. We took the dogs outside. We went back to bed.
We woke up and we were really tired. Tried to sleep a little more.
Woke up again. The housekeeper came again today.
We drank a cup of espresso and a little juice.
And then we got dressed – time to leave the house.

180560731_10158161458361408_5918260998626053103_n

It’s a beautiful day. And already 88 degrees and climbing!
Tell the Groundhog to get stuffed. It’s Summertime in the SFV this week.

180241002_4706695296023666_5321741280435079498_n

Okay, it’s the anniversary of the 1992 LA Riots
(following the Not Guilty verdict in the Rodney King beating trial)
4 white racist LAPD Officers were acquitted by a jury in Simi Valley.
EVERYONE SAW THE VIDEO. THEY BEAT A DEFENSELESS MAN.
AND THEY BEAT HIM WITHOUT MERCY. AND IT WAS ALL ON TAPE.
Colorlines Screenshot Rodney King Beating for NOW 030316
And LAPD Chief Daryl Gates let it happen. LAPD failed the city and citizens.
THERE WAS NO JUSTICE. And there was no justice for Latasha Harlins.
No Justice. No Peace. BLACKLIVESMATTER!


WAITING AT CVS….
179573650_4706866122673250_6739485461275299801_n

1:50pm: We got our second dose of the Moderna vaccine today. Yay!
Yay Science! 28 Days later. And now TWO MORE WEEKS. Feeling relieved.
We waited in line for about 10 minutes, then sat down and got the shot.
We joked with the the two injectors (nurses, we think) and thanked them a lot.
We wandered around the CVS and made a $6.00 purchase to thank them too.
Then we went to the bank and made a deposit. And then we came home.
We changed back into our house clothes, and took the dogs outside.
And now are all back chillin’ again in the Home Office.
And the dogs are sleeping. And the TV is off. And everything is really quiet.
Only the sound of the big dog snoring softly, and the typing on the keyboard.
SIGH. Okay, enough of that. We need to eat something. And some music too.

*FULLY VACCINATED means TWO WEEKS after the second dose! 
You are not fully vaccinated after the first dose,
and you are not fully vaccinated until TWO WEEKS after the second dose.
TWO WEEKS AFTER THE SECOND DOSE!
Vaccines don’t stop you from spreading the virus!
Vaccines may protect you from getting really sick,
and may prevent death if you contract COVID-19.
YOU CAN STILL GET SICK AND DIE.
YOU CAN STILL SUFFER FROM LONG-TERM EFFECTS.
YOU CAN STILL GET OTHER PEOPLE SICK.

5:00pm: We took the dogs outside and then we went to bed.
We slept until just before 5:00pm, but we woke up more than once.
We woke up again and took the dogs outside again.
We are still hungry, and we didn’t eat.
So we drank a little juice and ate a piece of candy just now.
Oh, and now our shoulder is hurting.
We felt like crap this morning, so it’s hard to tell if we feel like crap now.

155099365_10225570682919916_4992171520986066394_o

7:30pm: We tooth dogs outside. We fed the dogs. We took the dogs outside again.
And now we’re back chillin’ in the Home Office. We are feeling “MEH”….and a little sore.
We ate a dill pickle and drank an iced espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.
And “California’s Golden Parks” with Huell Howser is on KCET now.
And it’s the HETCH HETCHY episode. (that’s in Yosemite National Park)
We backpacked through Hetch Hetchy and up into Tiltill Valley a long time ago.
And it was fantastic! Hetch Hetchy is above Yosemite Valley, and was dammed up,
and now provides a water supply for San Francisco and the Bay Area.
But, it’s a beautiful natural granite valley formed by glaciers, just like Yosemite Valley,
and they built a Dam and filled it with fresh clean water from the Sierra snowmelt.
And Tiltill Valley is above Hetch Hetchy in the Yosemite backcountry,
another granite valley in the National Park, only accessible by foot.

On The Menu: Toasted bagel with lox, cream cheese, and lettuce;
and a celery stalk with peanut butter. And we are still drinking a lot of water
.

onemoresat

8:45am: We went back to bed.
The dogs got fed, the dogs went outside.
We drank a cup of espresso.


bobdylanelectric-1965-740x390

We watched “History Detectives” – an episode we’ve seen before on Rock and Roll stuff.
It features Bob Dylan’s Fender guitar from Newport ’65, a couple of Beatles’ autographs, and a Frank Zappa art piece. Great episode.

SPOILER ALERT! SPOILER ALERT! SPOILER ALERT!


The 2012 episode found out that the airplane pilot’s daughter had the guitar in New Jersey, and after a legal battle, she sold the Stratocaster at auction. Indianapolis Colts owner and Rock and Roll collector, Jim Irsay bought Dylan’s Newport guitar in 2013 for $965,000.

Irsay also bought Jerry Garcia’s one-of-a-kind “Tiger” guitar, made by Doug Irwin, at auction for $957,000 in 2002, and spent Five Million Dollars on some of David Gilmore’s guitars when they were auctioned for charity a few years ago. He has an amazing collection.


10:05am: We took the dogs outside again. We made another cup of espresso.
And then we cut up a pineapple, and ate a couple pieces.

12:25pm: We are chillin’ in the Home Office with the dogs again.
We took them outside and now they’re napping.
We made another cup of espresso and ate brunch/lunch.
On the Menu: toasted onion bagel with lox and cream cheese, dill pickle,
celery & carrot sticks, Italian salami, and a black&white cookie

And we just made a cup of espresso.

Choreboy is about to arrive, and now there’s some stuff to do around the house.

So, Choreboy did two loads of laundry and scooped all the poop.
He cleaned out the fridge, which was already pretty empty.
And then he did some dishes. He’ll be back tomorrow most likely for more.
It’s cold, and gray, and windy outside today.
We ate a toasted egg bagel with peanut butter and raspberry jam for lunch.
And we made some popcorn and drank a coke during the Oscars.

Questlove Oscar Trivia with Lil Rey
, play a game with the Oscar audience. Did “Purple Rain” win  an Oscar, and she swore on LIVE TV. No, the score was nominated, but none of the songs. THIS IS JUST AWFUL. Feeling really Diverse as they bulls*t on Live TV. Donna Summer for TGIF! “Let’s Dance” won an Oscar for “Thank G-d It’s Friday”. Glenn Close “Da Butt” and this must be set-up… she swore on Live TV too. Glenn Close just put the boogie in her butt!
“Glenn Close correctly identified a clip of Da Butt written by Marcus Miller and performed by the DC-based band Experience Unlimited (EU) from Spike Lee’s 1988 film, School Daze.”
Questlove is inspired. He directed the “Summer of Soul” documentary – short preview, and Zendaya for Lancome “Idole”, Flonase, Jeff Goldblum annoying you for Apartments.com, Jimmy Kimmel Live ABC Promo, ABC “The Good Doctor” promo, Diversity again, she’s jamming, for Grey Goose Essence, and now The Resorts World commercial!

And it pretty much sucked, and wasn’t very entertaining.
If we weren’t blogging it. We would have turned it off at the beginning.
No surprises. And not very exciting. Just pretty standard awards format,
with the usual COVID-19 adjustments, Nice that there was live audience, but it was STUPID and NO MASKS just sets a bad example for the public and will probably affect PUBLIC HEALTH. But, hey, lots of commercials, and lots of DIVERSITY. See Oscar isn’t so white…..
YEAH RIGHT. Alright, we’re done . That sucked. It’s going to be a ratings disaster tomorrow.
The dogs are sleeping here in the Home Office and we are hungry for dinner. 

8:22pm: “Oscars After Dark” following the Oscars. ABC is so damn DIVERSE!
300x169-Q100_e7be86f8d58f4a0318d3a99469d849d4
Trent Reznor, Jon Baptiste, and Atticus “After Dark”


9:20pm: We stopped, took the dogs outside,
and then went into the kitchen and made dinner.
And it’s drizzling a little outside. They said it might rain and they were right.

On The Menu: Breakfast for Dinner! Breakfast Burrito!
2 eggs over easy, bacon, and a quesadilla with salsa verde 
178966739_4697407930285736_3960988353607113068_n

We took the dogs outside again. And then they fell asleep.
And then we fell asleep…..

NO END TO THIS BULLSH*T. NO END IN SIGHT.
WE WON’T BE AT YOUR PARTY ON SUNDAY NIGHT!
ZERO CONTACT IS STILL THE RULE!
DO YOU THINK THAT I’M A FOOL?
DO NOT PARTY! AND HERE’S WHY:
IF YOU PARTY, YOU MIGHT DIE!

NOTE: We stayed the fuck home, and watched the Academy Awards’ Train Wreck.


Okay, here’s one for #StorySunday (on Monday):
Way back in the mid 1980s, we started gambling in Reno, Lake Tahoe and Las Vegas. And then we started working in the Hollywood film industry in 1989, and we met Frankie Valli and a old school “Friend of Frank’s” comedian named Joey Villa. Joey was friends with Meshulam Riklis and his wife Pia Zadora. Riklis was a corporate raider who bought the Riviera in 1973. Our friend Joey was booking the comedy room at the Riviera and also appearing in the “Splash” Revue stage show for many years, so when we visited him in Las Vegas in 1991, it was all VIP fun and a big party with Perry Como in the Penthouse. It was Old School Vegas, with real mobsters, and black tie glamour, at the Riv. “And now it’s all gone” They blew it up and tore it down, and now it’s a parking lot for the expanded LV Convention Center. Vegas just eats its own. So, we have a matching set of souvenir Riviera mugs, and ashtrays, and matches and even mini shampoo bottles from the many hotel stays. And sometimes we stayed next door at the El Morrocco/La Concha Motel or at another Strip hotel. And so we found this mug when thrifting, right before they announced the closing and demolished the hotel in 2015. We have so many crazy Las Vegas stories. They moved the Crazy Girls bronze statue to Planet Hollywood, so you can still see rub their butts for good luck. (if you’re interested you can read more about Las Vegas, the Riviera, and Joey Villa in our previous JoshWillTravel Blog Posts)

Monday, April 26, 2021 – PINK SUPERMOON TONIGHT (8:32pm PST)
Full Moon is named for the Spring bloom of the pink wildflower native to eastern North America: Phlox subulata (creeping phlox or moss phlox), also called “moss pink”

2:50am: Hello Monday morning, we’re up early. We fell asleep with the dogs for a little bit.
Not sure how long. It’s too early. So, we thought we’d update this Blog Post…. 

4:45am: Two hours later. And we decided to try to watch Disney/PIXAR’s “Soul” again.
Bob Dylan’s “Subterranean Homesick Blues”
Mystics Without Borders and Moonwind Stardancer on the brink of madness!
NOTE: “Soul” was great. It was beautiful. And it had a great Disney ending.
soul

11:55pm: Recapping Monday. Nothing happened.
We didn’t mean to take the day off, but it happened.
The dogs got fed. The dogs went outside. We got the newspapers and the mail.
The housekeeper came. We took a nap with the dogs. We drank espresso.
Drink coffee. Drink water.
It was a nice day outside. And now it’s overcast and drizzling a littlest midnight.
We ate a toasted bagel with cream cheese for lunch. And we just made dinner.
On The Menu: Mac’n’cheese just before midnight (and we are done now)

1:45am: The morning after. And it’s only 2:00am.
We fell asleep after 10:30pm with the dog and just woke up.
We took the dog outside.
And we got something in our right eye, and it’s really irritating.

1:00pm: And now we have a very RED EYE today. Like, seek medical attention time.
We watched Marvel’s “Avengers- Endgame” finally this morning.
And then we took the dog outside and the dogs got fed. And then we went to bed.
We hoped our eye would be better, but it’s not. And it’s swollen and hurts too.
FUCK.FUCK.FUCK.FUCK.FUCK.FUCK.FUCK.FUCK.FUCK.FUCK.FUCK.FUCK.
And we drank a cup of espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.

2:00pm: We made another cup of espresso and ate two mini-bran muffins.
The mobile groomer is here today to wash, cut, and do a teeth cleaning for the dogs.
3:00pm: The gardener is here now, the dogs are back in the Home Office.
They are clean, beautiful and happy. We calmed them down, took them outside,

Recapping Wednesday:
It kinda sucked. Then we got hungry.
We watched TV and surfed the interweb. Our right eye was all fucked up.
Not the vision, but it’s red and irritated, and annoying.
Periodically during the day we flush it with warm water.
Sometime after 9:00pm we turned off the lights and laid down, and fell asleep.

On The Menu: Pizzatime! We ordered an early pizza delivery, around 6:00pm.
And an extra-large pepperoni and sausage pizza appeared – YUM YUM!

Thursday, April 22, 2021 – HAPPY EARTH DAY!
This year’s theme is “Restoration of the Environment”
LOVE YOUR MOTHER EARTH! RESTORE OUR EARTH!
Take action today to help end plastic pollution, fight climate change
and Global Warming, and protect our land, air, water, and wildlife!

Earth is approximately 4.6 billion years old. The oldest known rocks are about 4 billion years old (rocks older than 3 billion years are rare) and the oldest fossils of living organisms are less than 3.9 billion years old. With a radius of 3,959 miles, Earth is the biggest of the known terrestrial planets, and the fifth largest in our solar system.

“Picture a bright blue ball just spinning, spinning free
Dizzy with eternity
Paint it with a skin of sky, brush in some clouds and sea
Call it home for you and me
A peaceful place, or so it looks from space
A closer look reveals the human race
Full of hope, full of grace, is the human face
But afraid we may lay our home to waste”

The name “Earth” is at least 1,000 years old and it is the only planet whose name doesn’t come from from Greek or Roman mythology. The name is from Old English and Germanic origins and means “ground”.

Nature is a Mother…. 
figure-01-seismo_lab-news-web

71 Percent of the Earth’s surface is covered with water. Earth’s atmosphere is 77% nitrogen, 21% oxygen, with traces of argon, carbon dioxide and water (H20). Earth’s oceans have an average depth of about 2.5 miles and contains 97 percent of the planet’s water. Earth has a central (inner and outer) core, a rocky mantle and a solid crust.

9:40am: We went to bed again after 6:00am and slept for a couple hours.
We woke up. The dogs went outside. The dogs got fed breakfast.
We drank a cup of espresso. And our eye is a little better this morning.
Doesn’t look better, but it feels a lot better today. Just going to wait it out.
It’s gray outside this morning, and not sunny yet.

You can visit the Jelly Belly factory in Fairfield, California

Fun Facts about Jelly Beans:

Became popular in the 1860s, when William Schrafft, a Boston candy maker,
encouraged people to send jelly beans to Union soldiers fighting the Civil War.

Jelly beans were originally a popular Christmas candy.
The candy became an Easter staple in the 1930s because of its egg shape.

Jelly beans were once sold separately by color.
And they were the first candy sold by weight instead of by the piece.
It can take seven to twenty-one days to make jelly beans.

The blueberry-flavored Jelly Belly was created for Ronald Reagan’s inauguration.
Jelly beans were his favorite candy and they have even been to space (thanks to Reagan).

Enough jelly beans to circle the Earth five times are eaten every year!


Jelly Bean Shot

Ingredients:
1/2 oz Blackberry Brandy (or Grenadine)
1/2 oz Anisette (or Sambuca, anise-flavored liqueur)
1/2 oz Southern Comfort

Directions:
Pour Brandy (or Grenadine) into a tall shot glass
Float the Anisette (or Sambuca) on top of the Brandy
Float the Southern Comfort on top of the Anisette
Serve and enjoy

How to “Float” (Bartending 101):
Hold a bar spoon upside down over the drink and rest the spoon’s tip on the inner edge of the glass, just above the top of the liquid. Slowly pour over the back of the bar spoon and onto the top of the previous ingredient. Move the spoon up as the liquor level rises.

The key is in the three layers of liqueurs: poured on top of each other in order with the heaviest on the bottom and the lightest on top. “Float” the liqueurs by pouring them over the back of a bar spoon. This creates a pretty triple-layered shot. The ingredients have specific densities that make the separation easy. The greater the density difference, the more defined their separation. Density is determined by the sugar and alcohol content. Grenadine is one of the heaviest mixers used for cocktails and will almost always sink to the bottom of the glass, even if it is the last ingredient added.
NOTE: The Anisette will give the drink a “black licorice” jelly bean taste.

Jägermeister is a type of liqueur called Kräuterlikör (herbal liqueur).
You can substitute it for the Anisette/Sambuca or just do a shot or two of Jäger!
“Jägermeister is a digestif made with 56 herbs and spices. Developed in 1934 by Wilhelm and Curt Mast, it has an alcohol by volume of 35%. The recipe has not changed since its creation and continues to be served in its signature green glass bottle.” – from wikipedia


Fruity Jelly Bean Shot!

Ingredients:
1/2 oz Blue Curacao
1/2 oz Pineapple Juice
1/2 oz Cherry Vodka

Directions:
Pour blue curaçao into tall shot glass.
Gently float pineapple juice on top.
Finish with a float of cherry vodka.

We ate two slices of cold leftover pizza. We watched the news. We surfed the interweb. And that’s Thursday right? It’s all good today. We woke up from our nap and the housekeeper was gone and the house is clean. The dogs are happy and they were groomed yesterday, so they are pretty clean too.
And the dogs just went outside again.

Earth orbits the sun and completes one daily rotation every 23.9 hours. It takes 365.25 days to complete a one year trip around the sun.  The Earth’s axis is tilted 23.4 degrees to the plane of the planet’s orbit around the sun and this causes the cycle of seasons.

Earth is the only known planet that has a single moon. The moon is (an average distance of) 238,855 miles away from Earth.

“Just remember that you’re standing on a planet that’s evolving
And revolving at 900 miles an hour.
It’s orbiting at 19 miles a second, so it’s reckoned,
The sun that is the source of all our power.”
– Monty Python’s “Galaxy Song”
from the motion picture “The Meaning of Life”

NATIONAL DAY OF SILENCE – (a day-long vow of silence to) protest bullying and harassment of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) students and the people that support them!

Screen Shot 2021-04-22 at 21.04.44
Vegas was active on the Thursday night Livestream from Las Vegas, Nevada.
(not as busy as last week though – March Madness and Spring Break)
New hotels/casinos Circa and Virgin are OPEN! Summertime is coming!
The new Resorts World (Hilton/Conrad/Conracks) is scheduled to open in June.
Restrictions and Regulations have been relaxed, or ignored, or been given lip service.
The Low-Rollers keep coming to spend their stimulus money and take a cheap vacation.
The hotels are re-opening what was closed, taking reservations, and everyone is hiring!
Businesses are having a hard time finding low-wage employees now.
It’s very hard to get an UBER or LYFT, because there aren’t enough drivers working.
And there’s a shortage of rental cars, as we mentioned previously, so rates are sky high.

12:50pm: Hello Friday! We went to bed early and woke up late.
We took the dogs outside. The dogs got fed. We took the dogs outside again.
We went back to sleep with the dogs. We woke up and drank a cup of espresso.
We took the dogs outside again. And now we’re in the Home Office chillin’.

1:35pm: We took the dogs outside again. Now time for some lunch.
On The Menu: 3 toasted mini-bagels with lox, cream cheese, and lettuce, dill pickle,
and cran-raspberry-orange juice to drink

5:25pm: Friday evening. Another week. Another weekend.
Waiting for our second shot….. staying home. Staying healthy.
No parties. No dinners out. No going out in public except when necessary.
We should have done some errands today, but we said f*ck it.
We hung out with the dogs. We took the dogs outside. We took a nap.

There were TWO PURSUITS this afternoon!
The first was over quickly, guy stole a Fire Truck – Battalion Chief’s SUV, and then he pulled over when the tires got flat and surrendered. The second dude, a DUI suspect (who was seen drinking during the chase) called the cops on himself, then ran it up from freeway to surface streets, through traffic, and all around town, before they finally PIT maneuvered him.
And he was just sitting there on the curb (not complying with officer’s orders) until the K-9 unit arrived and then he quickly surrendered when the dog started barking. HAHA.
Screen Shot 2021-04-23 at 14.47.23

5:50pm: We just set up the dogs’ supper in the kitchen and now it’s feeding time.

6:25pm: And the dogs are fed. And we took them outside on both sides.
Now we’re all back chilling’ in the Home Office watching “BBC World News”
and network and local news too.
6:50pm: And now they’re all asleep. It’s like having happy tired children.
GOOD SHABBOS EVERYONE! We’re getting hungry for our dinner now.

And there was another pursuit! We didn’t watch it, and it was over before we tuned in.
A suspected carjacker was being tracked and he just pulled over and surrendered.

AND DOES ANYONE CARE ABOUT THE OSCARS?
The Academy Awards are happening on Sunday. Who’s going to watch?
Elton John is having his Oscar party online and everyone’s invited for $.
(of course the money goes to charity)
We don’t know who’s nominated, or why. We heard “diversity” which is hilarious.
The OSCARS ARE SO WHITE and SO “INDUSTRY INSIDER” RUN.
At least Harvey Weinstein is in prison. We hate the ceremony for it’s ADVERTISING.
Both onstage, onscreen, and during the many commercials. Even the Red Carpet is just product placement and advertising – “promote your sh*t to the public” is the game.
And we’ll have an awards show where we give each other prizes for “best whatever”….

10:35pm: We ate a little cheese and a toasted croissant. We drank an iced espresso.
We took the dogs outside again. Now it’s time for dinner. What shall we have to eat?

We never did decide what to eat.
Instead we ate a black&white cookie and called that dinner.

Safe for people over the age of 18. Women under the age of 50 are subject to side effects.
GET VACCINATED! Moderna, Pfizer or Johnson&Johnson? Just do it.
The benefits outweigh the risk. Believe the SCIENCE!

Anyone seen an Indonesian submarine?
It sunk off Bali. And now they’ve run out of air. RIP

And Carl LaBove died today. Rest in Peace.
May the Four Winds blow him safely home. Partytime with Sam again.

And we are waiting for the other dogs to come home from their vacation this week.

and mustard with dill pickle slices on the side

We watched Marvel’s “Avengers – Infinity Wars” again this afternoon on Disney+.
We hung out with the dogs. We took a little nap.
We took the dogs outside a few times.
We fed the dogs. And the dogs went outside again.
We just made a double iced espresso, and we also drank one earlier. Zing!
(Oh, and this one has a scoop of vanilla Haagen-Daaz ice cream in it)
