See our previous Blog Post “CORONAVIRUS! Part 10 – That’s Entertainment!”

Tonight we are finally going to watch
Quentin Tarentino’s “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood
(update: we did not watch it Monday night, we got distracted by a livestream on Deadheadland: 7 Walkers tunes, lyrics by Robert Hunter, effin’ cool and other stuff)

On The Menu:
Monday night – 3 Pork Tamales and a Strawberry-Banana Nectar drink

We were outside this evening with the dogs and it was SO QUIET!
They are still doing residential construction across the street, leveling a piece of property is still deemed “essential” in Los Angeles (we checked) and the sounds of the bulldozer and big trucks on the street is a constant from morning until late afternoon.
It was a beautiful day today is our “splendid isolation” but the noise f*cking sucks!
So, we were outside this evening with the dogs and it was SO QUIET! TOO QUIET!
HASN”T BEEN THIS QUIET SINCE THE WEEK AFTER THE 9-11 TERRORIST ATTACK!
No commercial planes flying over the San Fernando Valley!
No traffic on the 101 Freeway! No street traffic on Ventura Boulevard!
Or on any street in the city, except where they have 4 (now 5) drive-thru testing sites,
and/or near a hospital. They are setting up new “Field Hospitals” to handle the overflow.
(i.e. Beds inside the LA Convention Center set up by the California National Guard)

Tuesday, March 31, 2020
We did not watch Quentin Tarentino’s “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood” last night.

Tonight’s Feature Presentation: “Once Upon A Time in Hollywood”

There was other good stuff to watch online to distract us until we passed out.
And how long was that, not sure, but it’s Tuesday about 11:30am and we’ve been up for hours. (tossed and turned all last night, and couldn’t sleep).
NOTE: That might be where that end of Monday rant (above) came from.

Three dogs chillin’ here with us at the Home Office (the little boy is under the desk getting loved with the left hand, while we type this with the right) and we are thinking about lunch/brunch/breakfast (although we had a toasted onion bagel with cream cheese with our second cup of espresso when we fed the dogs at 7am, so that was technically today’s breakfast). And it’s a warm and beautiful day in the San Fernando Valley, except for the construction across the street, it’s really nice. This morning, we asked them not to park and idle their dump trucks in front of the house (TWICE), and so far it’s a little better, and let’s see how long that lasts…. probably just until the next load or maybe tomorrow morning. AND F*CK NOW WE HAVE A HEADACHE!

90567854_10158152468182710_4542058010079395840_o

We thought about going to the market this morning, but we might go tomorrow instead.
There’s plenty of food and we only need a few things, but we don’t want to go out in public! It doesn’t feel safe. The few things we need can wait until tomorrow, right?
NOTE: Already being a practical germophobe for so long, this is hell on our anxiety level!

Just holed up at home wondering what’s next, like everyone else, trying to keep occupied:
Outdoors yesterday! We cleaned out the dog run and doghouse crate in the big backyard! And we are also fixing the rock garden (which is a crazy mess) a little each time we are outside while the dogs run around, play, and eat stuff they shouldn’t. We also did a little gardening and pruned the lemon tree, while harvesting a sh*tload of lemons, and we still have lots more to pick! And now we need to make lemonade.

And “Spring Cleaning” continues too!
We try to do a little bit of something everyday, while constantly keeping the kitchen cleaned and sanitized. And that reminds us it’s time for lunch!

On The Menu for Tuesday’s Lunch:
Bean and cheese burrito in a flour tortilla with avocado and salsa and an iced espresso.

and Maybe a little nap after lunch.
And then we woke up to the horrible afternoon news.
THE DEAD, DYING, AND SICK REPORT as the pandemic explodes across the country.
7477 Reported Cases  – 54 Reported Deaths in Los Angeles County as of today.

Breaking News! “Virginia will join Maryland in issuing stay-at-home order, sources say, nearly shutting down the Washington D.C. region.” – Washington Post
Texas Governor orders “stay-at-home” until April 30, schools closed until May 4.
42 states are now SHUT DOWN. Should have been 50 states two weeks ago.
Not enough tests available, only a fraction of necessary tests are actually being done!
Now enough medical equipment! Masks, gloves, face shields, gowns, swabs, and more.
Doctors and nurses are getting sick. Medical professionals are ESSENTIAL & NEEDED!

The “SPRING BREAK” outbreaks are just beginning, (the kids brought the virus home) and then they told two friends, and so on and so on and so on. Hope it was a good party.

REMAIN CALM! WASH YOUR HANDS!

WATCH THIS IF YOU DON’T WANT TO SLEEP TONIGHT:
Tracking only one small area of the Florida beach….. remember the news footage?
Is the Mar-A-Lago Club still open? Are they still serving over-cooked steaks and chocolate cake to Trump’s rich friends? Don’t hear much about who else from their party got sick!
AND HOW MANY SENATORS ARE ACTUALLY INFECTED THANKS TO RAND PAUL?

EVERYTHING TRUMP SAYS IS A LIE! – EVERYTHING TRUMP SAYS IS A LIE! –
EVERYTHING TRUMP SAYS IS A LIE! – EVERYTHING TRUMP SAYS IS A LIE! –

Trump warns of difficult weeks ahead……
with projections of 100,000 to 240,000 deaths!

How’s the hair Donny?

TOTAL FAILURE OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT
TO PROTECT THE PUBLIC HEALTH!

Their NUMBERS ARE A VERY LOW ESTIMATE – A LOT MORE PEOPLE WILL DIE!
Their incompetence is criminal and they should all hang for genocide, high treason,
and crimes against humanity (not the game). Get the torches and pitchforks Grandpa!

EVERYTHING TRUMP SAYS IS A LIE! – EVERYTHING TRUMP SAYS IS A LIE! –
EVERYTHING TRUMP SAYS IS A LIE! – EVERYTHING TRUMP SAYS IS A LIE! –
EVERYTHING TRUMP SAYS IS A LIE! – EVERYTHING TRUMP SAYS IS A LIE!

THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION HAS FAILED TO PROTECT THE UNITED STATES!
Trump was briefed about Coronavirus 3 months ago!
He called it a hoax, a conspiracy theory, ignored it and of course, lied about it!
A TOTAL REPUBLICAN FAILURE! Trump fired the NSC Pandemic Team in 2018!

“Donald Trump’s mental illness is killing people.” – Rob Reiner

Trump and the Republicans in Congress are a Clear and Present Danger
to Public Health and Safety of the United States!

FUCK FOX NEWS – TRUMP PROPAGANDA NETWORK! THEIR LIES KILLED PEOPLE!

Trump is very happy he’s getting great ratings!

California Senior Citizen Help Hotline: 1-833-544-2374
Help for Senior Citizens during the coronavirus pandemic.

If you or someone you know is having suicidal thoughts, get help right away!
Call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 800-273-TALK (800-273-8255) to reach a trained counselor and press 1 to reach the Veterans Crisis Line.
You can also chat with them online at suicidepreventionlifeline.org/chat/.

Here are some common warning signs of suicide,
as provided by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention:

  • Talking about wanting to die
  • Looking for a way to kill oneself
  • Talking about feeling hopeless or having no purpose
  • Talking about feeling trapped or in unbearable pain
  • Talking about being a burden to others
  • Increasing the use of alcohol or drugs
  • Acting anxious, agitated or recklessly
  • Sleeping too little or too much
  • Withdrawing or feeling isolated
  • Showing rage or talking about seeking revenge
  • Displaying extreme mood swings

UPDATED 11-14-19: Did you know that if you text 741741 when you are feeling depressed, suicidal or anxious, a crisis worker will text you back and continue to text with you? Many people, especially younger folks, do not like talking on the phone and would be more comfortable texting. It’s a free service to ANYONE – teens, adults, etc. – who lives in the U.S. It’s run by The Crisis Text Line and is legit.

It’s ok to not be ok sometimes. People care about you and the world would not be the same without you in it. ❤️ More on mental health in this weird time next Blog Post.

The dogs are fed and happy. Now it’s time for a double feature film festival.

“Once Upon A Time in Hollywood” Take 2

 




UPDATED April 1, 2020:

By George Ronny Conway:

For Trump supporters, let me make one thing VERY clear!
For the record NO ONE is blaming the President for the virus. Let me repeat. Coronavirus is not Trump’s fault.
Here’s a detailed list of what we are blaming him for:
* Trump declined to use the World Health Organization’s test like other nations. Back in January, over a month before the first Co-vid19 case, the Chinese posted a new mysterious virus and within a week, Berlin virologists had produced the first diagnostic test. By the end of February, the WHO had shipped out tests to 60 countries. Oh, but not our government. We declined the test even as a temporary bridge until the CDC could create its own test. The question is why? We don’t know but what to look for is which pharmaceutical company eventually manufactures the test and who owns the stock. Keep tuned.
* In 2018 Trump fired Homeland Security Advisor Tom Bossart, whose job was to coordinate a response to global pandemics. He was not replaced.
* In 2018 Dr. Luciana Borio, the NSC director for medical and bio-defense preparedness left the job. Trump did not replace Dr. Borio.
* In 2019 the NSC’s Senior Director for Global Health Security and bio-defense, Tim Ziemer, left the position and Trump did not replace the Rear Admiral.
* Trump shut down the entire Global Health Security and Bio-defense agency. Yes, he did.
* Amid the explosive worldwide outbreak of the virus Trump proposed a 19% cut to the budget of the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention plus a 10% cut to Public Health Services and a 7% cut to Global Health Services. Those happen to be the organizations that responds to public health threats.
* In 2018, at Trump’s direction, the CDC stopped funding epidemic prevention activities in 39 out of 49 countries including China.
* Trump didn’t appoint a doctor to oversee the US response to the pandemic. He appointed Mike Pence.
* Trump has on multiple occasions sowed doubt about the severity of the virus even using the word hoax at events and rallies. He even did it at an event where the virus was being spread. Trump has put out zero useful information concerning the health risks of the virus.
* Trump pretended the virus had been contained.
* Trump left a cruise ship at sea for days, denying them proper hospital care, rather than increase his numbers in America.
Repeat. We do not blame Trump for the virus. We blame him for gutting the nation’s preparations to deal with it. We blame him for bungling testing and allowing it to spread uninhibited. We blame him for wasting taxpayer money on applause lines at his rallies (like The Wall). We blame him for putting his own political life over American human life. I hope this clears things up.”
