“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step” – Lao Tzu

We have started our SPRING CLEANING early. We are tasked with “unboxing”, sorting, repacking and moving all of our stuff again. And now we are selling and giving away other things we no longer need or wish to keep and store.

We moved everything to this location from our last storage space in North Hollywood. We also gave away a quality queen bed, a very nice leather recliner sofa and another small couch during that move. And our mid-century modern dining room table is also “on loan” until we have a place for it.

A daunting task to deal with so much “stuff” which we have only just begun…

MORE TO COME! (an inventory, pics and stuff for sale soon!)

“That’s all, a little place for my stuff.
That’s all I want, that’s all you need in life,
is a little place for your stuff, ya know?”

– George Carlin

On The Menu: Thai food! Crispy rice with pork, beef panang and steamed rice, chicken satay with cucumber salad and toast, pad Thai noodles with chicken, green curry chicken, tom kai soup and a Thai iced tea (no cream). There were three other dishes that we didn’t eat and we cancelled two other dishes that they didn’t bring. So much food, so full.

NOTE: This Blog (and the UC Santa Cruz Blog that hasn’t been published yet) was written before we got the news that our very good friend Ann from college died suddenly and unexpectedly this week. We’ve been in shock and are deeply saddened by this news. You don’t think this will be the last time you see someone you’ve loved for 30+ years. It was a really fun day in Hollywood and then I dropped them off at the Cure concert at the Hollywood Bowl. Rest in Peace Annie. May the Four Winds blow her safely home.

FlashbackFriday! Janis Joplin’s Psychedelic 1964 Porsche 356c Cabriolet

FlashbackFriday!

Janis Joplin’s Psychedelic 1964 Porsche 356c Cabriolet

img02784-20130409-1438

Janis Joplin’s Porsche 356c Cabriolet in the Lobby of the Grammy Museum at L.A. Live

Janis Joplin purchased a used 1964 Porsche 356c Cabriolet for $3500 from Beverly Hills car dealer Estes-Zipper in 1968. She paid Dave Richards, one of her roadies, $500 to give the Porsche a psychedelic face lift. Completed in one month and titled “The History of the Universe.” The car and its paint job (a base coat of Candy Apple Red with portraits of Big Brother and the Holding Company, her astrological sign Capricorn, “The Eye of God” design on the hood, butterflies, jellyfish and a Northern California scene on the side doors) became one of the most recognizable vehicles in San Francisco.

The Porsche was stolen in 1969 and partially repainted before being found.  When the stolen car was recovered, the paint job was restored because they were able to remove the new paint from the clearcoat with little damage to the original artwork underneath.

Janis Lyn Joplin aka “Pearl” RIP (January 19, 1943 – October 4, 1970)

After Janis’ death in 1970, the car was used by her manager Albert Grossman. And then in 1973 ownership of the car went to her siblings, Michael and Laura Joplin in Ohio, who shared it for about 30 years. Michael rebuilt the original engine and returned the car to the original dolphin gray color (although some say it was originally oyster white). Working from photographs, artists Jana Mitchell and Amber Owen, restored Dave’s original artwork in 1990 and the 4-speed manual transmission was rebuilt and restored. The family loaned the Porsche to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame when Janis was inducted in 1995 and it was exhibited in museums until 2015. We saw it and took the above photograph in the Lobby of the Grammy Museum at L.A. Live in Los Angeles in 2013 (see our previous Blog).

NOTE: Dec. 10, 2015 – A 1964 Porsche 356 that once belonged to the rock singer Janis Joplin sold at auction for $1.76 million (the highest price ever paid for any Porsche 356 at auction). The car had been expected to sell for between $400,000 and $600,000. The sale price includes a 10% commission for Sotheby’s auction house. According to the family, the proceeds from the auction will be used to support social programs in Janis’s memory.

“Oh Lord, won’t you buy me a Mercedes Benz?
My friends all drive Porsches, I must make amends.”

Sotheby’s did not say who bought Janis’ car and the buyer has not come forward.

Backyard Birdwatching

Backyard Birdwatching

In the heart of the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles, California, we still have birds.

All of these pictures were taken from my backyard.

Just got home from Illinois lock the front door oh boy!
Got to sit down take a rest on the porch.
Imagination sets in pretty soon I’m singin’
Doo doo doo lookin’ out my back door.

Wild Geese:

The Sepulveda Dam Basin is a natural watershed and there are many birds that stop, feed and rest here on their migratory flights north and south. Wild Canadian Geese “The Honkers” are frequently seen flying in their distinctive “V” pattern and their honking can often be heard as they approach and fly over.

Happiness is a mental or emotional state of well-being defined by positive or pleasant emotions ranging from contentment to intense joy. Happy mental states may also reflect judgements by a person about their overall well-being.

Happiness has traditionally been considered an elusive and evanescent thing.
To some, even trying to achieve it is an exercise in futility.

You can have everything if you let yourself be”

Art is a diverse range of human activities in creating visual, auditory or performing artifacts (artworks), expressing the author’s imaginative or technical skill, intended to be appreciated for their beauty or emotional power. These activities include production of works of art, criticism of art, study of art history and the aesthetic dissemination of art.

A Case of the Mondays?

A Case of the Mondays?

505a6fff2febd930ed58b43775ab3a8e

Garfield don’t like Mondays.

Monday is the first day of the week.
Monday is the day of the week before Tuesday and following Sunday.
Monday comes from the Latin diēs Lūnae “day of the Moon”.

c6fe398d34ec96a3e8cfb41b3f8166af

“Monday, Monday”…. A Case of the Mondays?

From THE URBAN DICTIONARY:
A phrase used to describe someone that has a bad mood
when he or she comes to work or school on Mondays.
OR
A phrase that someone uses if he or she wants
to get their ass kicked by their fellow co-workers or school mates.

(a study published by a team of psychologists at Stony Brook University
says a better turn of phrase might be “a case of the weekdays”)

Another Monday, Another Blog…. this one all about Monday.

It has a staff of nearly 50 artists and licensing administrators. In 1994, the company purchased all rights to the Garfield comic strips from 1978 to 1993 from United Feature Syndicate.

Hey Trump and McConnell:

“Yeah. You know what, yeah, I do. I do want to express myself, okay.”

Trump’s Golden Rule: He who has the gold, makes the rules.

The United States has elected a CRIMINAL CON MAN with no morals or ethics. Trump is ignorant and can barely read. He doesn’t know history, politics, world geography, science or correct grammar. He surrounds himself with the worst people. He has ties to Putin and Russia. He is guilty of treason, fraud and sexual assault. Trumpsters take your victory lap today, because the future doesn’t look good for people who won’t wear a red cap and everyone else. Trump belongs in prison not the White House.

Office Space is a 1999 American “cult” comedy film written and directed by Mike Judge. It satirizes the everyday work life of a 1990’s software company, focusing on a few individuals fed up with their jobs. The film has a cult following and depicts ordinary workers in a sympathetic way and contains themes familiar to white-collar workers, the workplace, and the workforce in general.

Super Bowl 50 – LEVI Stadium in San Jose, California

We don’t care who wins,
but we would like the New England Patriots to lose today.

We procrastinated and waited until this morning to do our party shopping.
So, we made an early Supermarket run for groceries and party supplies:

16427380_1677780995581793_7331489914020621327_n

Groceries and Super Bowl Party Supplies!

We weren’t sure what we were going to serve.
We planned on hot dogs (defrosted from the freezer).
We also thought wings and meatballs. So, that’s what we did.
Guacamole (had 2 ripe avocados), check. Chips, pretzels, etc., check.
We also did some of our shopping for the week.

We prepped the food, cooked the meatballs and then the wings,
made hotdogs for lunch and settled in for the Pre-Game Show.

Superbowl Sunday! Let’s get this party started!

LUNCH!

16473747_1677775378915688_5026933393302931563_n

 

GAME TIME FOOD!

AND THEN CLICK AGAIN TO VIEW THE PIC AT FULL SIZE!

 

ON THE MENU: 2 hotdogs with mustard, onions and cheese on Hawaiian bread buns! Watermelon! Raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, kiwi fruit and red & green grapes. Hot Wings! Crudité: celery, carrots, persian cucumber with ranch dressing and dill pickles. Meatballs with marinara sauce! Fresh made guacamole! Tortilla chips, pretzel sticks, pistachio nuts, cool ranch Doritos, BBQ kettle potato chips, teriyaki beef jerky, milk chocolate Milano cookies and peanut M&Ms. Coca-Cola, Dr Pepper, cran-raspberry-orange-pineapple juice and iced espresso.

ITALIAN MEATBALLS (with Marinara Sauce):

Mix 1/2 lb ground beef, 1/2 lb pork sausage (we used links and removed the casings), chopped onion, bread crumbs and spices: black pepper, salt, garlic powder, minced garlic, and Italian seasoning in a medium bowl. Roll into golf ball sized meatballs.
Heat a large pan with a little olive oil to medium heat and brown the meatballs turning so all of the outside is seared but the inside is still slightly uncooked. Remove from pan and let sit for 5-10 mins. Warm marinara sauce in a pan and add meatballs, rolling them in the sauce until they are completely coated. Remove from pan and let sit for 5-10 mins.
Add cornstarch to the marinara sauce and drippings and stir until it thickens.
Pour sauce over meatballs.
Bake meatballs in the oven at 300 degrees for 5-10 mins before serving.

HOT WINGS (with celery, carrots and ranch dressing):

10 wings (cut up with the ends trimmed off)
Mix 3/4 cup flour, 1/2 tsp cayenne powder, 1/2 tsp garlic powder and 1/2 tsp salt in a large bowl. Coat wings completely and place in the refrigerator for an hour.
Heat oil and deep fry the wings. Place on paper towels to drain.
In a separate bowl mix 1/2 cup melted butter, 1/2 cup of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce (or other hot sauce), a dash of black pepper, a dash of garlic powder. Dip each wing in sauce and place on baking sheet. Bake in oven at low heat for 15 mins on each side, then broil for 2 mins on each side. Serve with ranch dressing, extra sauce, celery and carrots.


Let the Commercials and FOX Promos begin! The “Pre-Kick” Show!
National Anthem and Who is Luke Bryant?
Coin toss with ex-President George H.W. (Senior) and Barbara Bush.
The Atlanta Falcons win the coin toss and defer to receive in the Second Half.
New England will receive and gets the football first.

NOTE: To be honest, we watched the game and commercials while enjoying the food and the Super Bowl party. We did LIVE POST all the scoring plays on our personal facebook timeline as they happened, but it was so we could get the pics for this blog, which we are writing at Midnight long after the game is over.
We recorded it, so we are watching it again as we write this Blog.

“Say What?”

“Turn out the lights, the party’s over!”

The Atlanta Falcons choked and lost the game in the Second Half. The New England Patriots beat them by a touchdown in Overtime making what looked like a complete “blowout” in the First Half into an exciting game in the Second Half. Tom Brady led his team to the WIN and Atlanta was unable to respond after the early 3rd Quarter touchdown.

Saturday Morning…

Saturday Morning…

Welcome! Good Morning! It’s Saturday! 
Okay, let’s Live Blog about the day.

7:20am
So, the dogs are all fed and snacked.
They went outside before and after.
They watched me make, eat and drink my breakfast and a double espresso
And now the puppies are playing tug-o-war with a towel on the rug
and the Big Boy is laying on the bed in my office while I’m writing this Blog.

Breakfast: 2 English muffins with chunky peanut butter and red raspberry jam, sweet red grapes, a ripe yellow banana, a small glass of “not from concentrate” orange juice and a warm double espresso with non-dairy creamer.

16387042_1676373965722496_7921359160003658722_n

7:20am Watching the Banana.

“M*A*S*H” (the TV series) is on Sundance Channel on my big screen television.
One more time outside with the played-out puppies and now the dogs are down for their morning nap. The “Little Bandit” is asleep in my lap and it’s just 7:45am

Avocado!

8:20am
So, the workmen are here now.
They have been replacing the tile on my patio and doing some other work here at the house. What should have been a 3-day job is taking 2 weeks. They didn’t have enough tile when they started the job, which I pointed out to “the boss” before they started. It was easy to see that 6 boxes of 6 tiles each (36 tiles) wasn’t going to cover the top of the patio, the steps and the sides which already used 40+ same sized tiles. Then they had to stop because it rained, not once but three times, and so they’re here on Saturday morning to saw tiles and finish the patio work at last.

The dogs have been moved to the bedroom because they were barking.
NOTE: “M*A*S*H” (the TV series) is still funny,
and it is so much better than anything currently on network television!

9:10am
The dogs are back in the office because they were barking.
“Airplane! The Movie” has come on Sundance Channel.

Lt. Hurwitz: “You’ll be good! You’ll be great! Gonna have the whole world on your plate! Everything’s Comin’ Up Roses….”

Ted Stryker:
“War is Hell.”

And now the dogs (and me) are down again for their morning nap.
I didn’t stay down for long…. and neither did they.

Saturday Morning Nap POV

Watched a Saturday Sunrise from Hawaii onPeriscope (Thanks gLo in Kailua!):

And a little more “Airplane! the Movie”:

Sing Along! “There is only one people, we are one and the same…”

10:00am
Another espresso (and I ate a piece of cold fried chicken, a leg, while making it):

Warm Espresso (with milk)

Getting hungry… the dogs are sleeping. “Let sleeping dogs lie.”

Sawing stone tiles, looking out my backdoor.
Hammering and drilling, working in the living room.
(Do I have a headache?) Why does Sundance Channel have commercials?
silence…

10:30am
Time to go into the kitchen and take the puppies outside again.
Birds of Prey! 4 Hawks circling overhead… with blue skies and clouds.

Birds of Prey! 4 Hawks Circling Over the House!

No, these are hawks not turkey vultures!
They’ve been hunting in the neighborhood for a couple months.
They like to perch in the tall trees and watch for small critters.

So, okay, maybe not. Back into the kitchen. Time to cook.

10:50am
BRUNCH!

AND THEN CLICK AGAIN TO VIEW THE PIC AT FULL SIZE!

Brunch: 2 eggs (over medium), 4 strips of crispy bacon, a cheese quesadilla,
a glass of cran-raspberry-orange juice and a glass of pineapple juice.

Brunch?

And HBO is running an ironic “Last Week Tonight With John Oliver” marathon:

And the dogs are down again.
And now it’s NOON.

UPDATE Saturday 3:15pm
It’s still too wet to finish the tile work. So it’s cut and measured
and they say they’ll finish after the next few storms pass through.
Probably “2 more weeks”…. but the hammering just won’t stop.
