CORONAVIRUS! Part 13 (Thurs-Fri)
Thank you to all the “service workers” who are the real “essential” people.
Thank you to the farm workers and field hands (immigrants) who grow our food.
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!
Trump and the Republicans in Congress are a Clear and Present Danger
to Public Health and Safety of the United States! LOCK THEM UP!
CAN YOU TRUST THE INFO FROM THE CDC?
TRUMP IS FLAT OUT LYING TO YOU!
Trump’s medical experts aren’t telling the truth.
TRUMP’S LIES ARE KILLING U.S. CITIZENS!
Trump warns of difficult weeks ahead……
with projections of 100,000 to 240,000 deaths!
(the actual number of dead Americans will be much higher)
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!
TOTAL FAILURE OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT
TO PROTECT THE PUBLIC HEALTH!
Their NUMBERS ARE A VERY LOW ESTIMATE – A LOT MORE PEOPLE WILL DIE!
REMEMBER to DISINFECT and SANITIZE frequently-touched surfaces like:
cell phones, computers (keyboard & mouse), door handles, faucets, keys. credit cards, wallets, purses, tables, desks, countertops, light switches, knobs, dials, etc.
THIS VIRUS MAY KILL YOU OR SOMEONE YOU CARE ABOUT!
Thursday, April 2, 2020
We kinda took Thursday off… we did other things – not watching the news and not working too much on this next Blog Post. Mind your MENTAL HEALTH!
“Safer-At-Home” and we were outside in the backyard and with the dogs all day.
The “Orange Turd” is a COMPLETE AND TOTAL FAILURE! AND HE AND HIS CRONIES WILL KILL US ALL! HE MUST RESIGN! THEY MUST RESIGN! THIS COUNTRY NEEDS INTELLIGENT, CAPABLE, AND UNIFIED LEADERSHIP!
“With great power comes great narcissism.” – Jimmy Kimmel
We went to the market Wednesday morning and “boy is my paranoia tired”….
was going to make shrimp for dinner, but the news and current circumstances made us lose our appetite. Instead, we ate some beef jerky, BBQ potato chips, a couple Reese’s mini peanut butter cups, drank an espresso and then passed out for awhile.
So, we made it on Thursday:
On The Menu: Lemon garlic shrimp with sautéed broccoli and onions, fried rice, fresh pineapple and cran-raspberry juice for late lunch/early supper.
Friday, April 3, 2020 – Aloha!
(You can wear a Hawaiian shirt and jeans today)
And it’s “Fez Friday” – so wear one if you got one.
And “Formal Friday” is trending during the Lockdown
thanks to Jimmy Kimmel and the interweb.
Checked our calendar today:
Our dogs are fed and happy and chillin’. We cleaned the dog run in the backyard this week (after a long time not being used) and they like being outside. We have wild animals here in the San Fernando Valley: squirrels, raccoons, possums, big rats, and f*ckin’ coyotes. Coyotes killed two of or dogs three years ago so we don’t take chances.
Brought in the newspapers, and the US Mail, and a package the UPS guy dropped.
Well, guess we’ll clean and sanitize the kitchen again….
this time REALLY DEEP!
Sink, stove, oven, countertops, table, handles, knobs, etc.
On The Menu: We had a toasted bagel with lox, cream cheese and sliced cucumber with a dill pickle spear, a bunch of red grapes and an iced espresso to drink for early lunch.
Still avoiding the news today.
Cleaned up the dog poop and played with the dogs outside some more.
Last night we half-watched the Coen Brother’s “True Grit” again on satellite TV.
With Jeff Bridges (Rooster “Dude” Cogburn), Matt Damon (LeBouef – an accent you have to hear) and Hallie Stanfield as Maddie. Good film. We recommend viewing it.
We also watched a bunch of other stuff on the interweb: a replay of Tedeschi/Trucks in concert, Bert Kreischer’s “Hey Big Boy” on Netflix, music videos and livestream replays. And a we watched a wild high speed pursuit in Detroit that ended with a massive traffic accident with our friend’s channel “Smoke’n’Scan” on Periscope (and also on youtube).
Spent the day on Facebook inbetween doing the other stuff.
And now the Mayor’s daily briefing (for Friday) is on television:
4566 Reported Cases – 89 Reported Deaths in Los Angeles County as of Friday!
And now time for dinner!
We are cooking. Food is prepped for cooking. Time to cook the dinner.
Friday night dinner
Stay Home! Stay Healthy! Be well!
Good Shabbos Y’all!
Wishing you and your family and friends good health and happiness this week while under forced lockdown! Good Shabbos!
On The Menu: Steak, lemon-garlic shrimp, baked potatoes, sautéed onions and asparagus, and corn on the cob. Cran-raspberry-orange juice to drink.
And a Banana Split for dessert. Because, why not?
Rocky road & mocha almond fudge ice cream
with caramel & chocolate sauces and whipped cream.
START HOARDING THE PEEPS NOW!
“Just Born Quality Confections, which produces the (PEEPS) candy in its Bethlehem and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania factories, announced that as of today, they were stopping the candy-making and shuttering the factory through at least April 7.”
Culling the herd: (cull means to select or gather)
1. Literally, to separate or remove (and usually kill) inferior animals out of a herd so as to reduce numbers or remove undesirable traits from the group as a whole.
(When population densities get too high, they can become diseased)
“Removing some animals from a population creates more space and food for those that are left, and can disrupt social controls on breeding. Survival, reproduction and immigration all increase as a result, and the population quickly rebounds.”
Think about how many babies will be born nine months from now!
DON’T GO TO CHURCH!
DON’T GATHER IN GROUPS OF ANY SIZE!
“Social Distancing” saves lives. STAY THE FUCK HOME!
“The prudent see danger and take refuge,
but the simple keep going and pay the penalty.”
And in Hebrew:
“A cunning man saw harm and hid, but fools passed and were punished.”

Here are some common warning signs of suicide,

- Talking about wanting to die

- 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

NOTE: 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. ❤️

We have so much!
Be thankful. Be grateful.
Be kind to each other – love one another – support everyone.
This shall pass
We are all one! ❤️

*A RECAP OF THE LAST THREE WEEKS* (Author Unknown)
AMERICA: Oh my god! Coronavirus! What should we do?
CALIFORNIA: Shut down your state.
AMERICA: Wait… what? Why?
CALIFORNIA: Because 40 million people live here and we did it early, and it’s working.
OHIO: Whoa… whoa… let’s not be hasty now. The president said that this whole coronavirus thing is a democratic hoax.
CALIFORNIA: He also said that windmills cause cancer. Shut down your state.
TEXAS: But the president said that we only have 15 cases and soon it’ll be zero.
CALIFORNIA: The president can’t count to fifteen. Nor even spell it. Shut down your state.
NEW JERSEY: Us too?
CALIFORNIA: Yes, you guys too. Just like when Christie shut down the bridge, but it’s your whole state.
FLORIDA: But what about all these kids here on spring break?? They spend a lot of money here!
CALIFORNIA: Those kids invented the tide pod challenge. Shut down your state.
LOUISIANA: But wait let’s have Mardi Gras first. It entertains people.
CALIFORNIA: It also kills them. Shut it down.
GEORGIA: OK well how about we keep the state open for all of our mega-churches? Maybe we can all pray really hard until the coronavirus just goes away!
CALIFORNIA: Which is working like a charm for mass shootings. Jesus told us to tell you to shut down your state.
OKLAHOMA: What about the tigers?
CALIFORNIA: What about a dentist. Shut it down.
WYOMING: Hold up, maybe we should go county by county like the president said.
CALIFORNIA: Stop acting like there are counties in Wyoming. There are no counties in Wyoming. Wyoming is a county. Shut it down.
PENNSYLVANIA: But big coal.
CALIFORNIA: But big death. Shut it.
WEST VIRGINIA: But we were the last state to get coronavirus!
CALIFORNIA: And don’t make us explain to you why that was. Shut it down.
NORTH CAROLINA: But the republican national convention is coming here!
CALIFORNIA: SHUT… OK, fine do what you want.
