CORONAVIRUS! Part 86 (Sat-Sun-Mon-Tues-Wed)

CORONAVIRUS! Part 86 (Sat-Sun-Mon-Tues-Wed)

tree1
It’s beginning to look a lot like “the holidays” in Las Vegas….
as the CoronaVirus is spiking in Nevada, and visitors are bringing to and from town.
The decorations are up, but business is bad. So some hotels (Mirage and ) are just closing Sun-Thurs and moving guests to other hotels (heard they have room at the Bellagio for everyone). Meanwhile The Rio is planning to reopen this week.
We remain SAFER AT HOME, this pic is from the “Not Leaving Las Vegas” Friday night Livestream on youtube. We can only wish that it was safe to go visit Vegas. It is not.
DO NOT TRAVEL! STAY HOME AND STAY HEALTHY!
WEARAFUCKINGMASK! WEARAFUCKINGMASK! WEARAFUCKINGMASK!
STAYTHEFUCKHOME! STAYTHEFUCKHOME! STAYTHEFUCKHOME!

Saturday, November 21, 2020

We were up early and fed the dogs, and we ate a slice of cold pizza and drank an espresso.
Then we went to market… and got the newspapers.
Have you ever lost your shopping cart at the grocery store? Yeah, that happened….
We think someone moved our cart from the produce section by accident. We found it in the meat section…. don’t know if we left it there, but it was really early and we haven’t been sleeping very much. So, we stocked up on stuff for a while, but we were so frazzled we forgot some stuff we still need to get, so we’ll have to go out again this week.
When we came home we put everything away, took a shower, and made breakfast.

On The Menu: Toasted egg bagel with lox, cream cheese, lettuce; dill pickle, carrot and celery, red grapes, and an espresso for breakfast

1:00pm: And we are really tired today, but too tired to sleep… we tried to take a nap.
We tried a couple times to go back to sleep and then gave up.
So now we’re working on this Blog, and we still have to finish last week’s too.

NOTE: Here’s something weird….
since we have photos of the food in albums, they show up in fb memories. Frequently, wel find that we eat the same things on the same day, years apart! Here’s an example from last week and SIX years ago. We were out of celery, but there was a big bag of carrots….

On the Menu: a piece of leftover pizza around midnight

EXTRA! EXTRA! READ ALL ABOUT IT!
LAMAG.com just did an expose of the response to the looting, rioting and failed police response in Santa Monica during the BlackLivesMatter protest!
Here is our response:
Anyone who was in charge of the City of Santa Monica on May 31, should have already resigned or been fired! How are the police captains and city officials who were responsible for this complete failure still employed and in office? Anyone watching LIVE ON TV, FB, Twitter/Periscope, or YouTube saw there was NO RESPONSE to the looting and violence for HOURS! And the police response to the BLM protest was violent and then pushed people into the residential neighborhoods with no way to return to their cars or leave the city. And then they arrested the peaceful protesters, held them for hours in unsafe conditions during a pandemic, and later dropped them at city limits in the middle of the night without money, ids or cell phones! Every business owner and detained protester should be suing the City of SM and SMPD for negligence, damages, dereliction of duty, and civil rights violations. TOTAL FAIL! Thank you Phil Brock for running for office and standing up for the people!
And thanks LAMag for finally pointing out the real failures, more of which have yet to be revealed. And here are our fb threads from the day of the looting:

Unattended Los Angeles Sheriff’s cars smashed, set on fire, and burning on the street in Santa Monica. Why were these cars left unguarded for hours after the rioting started? Looters were taking selfies with the burning cars on LIVE TV and no police responded:

SOME GOOD NEWS! Phil Brock was just elected to the Santa Monica City Council!
(and Read our previous Blog Post “CORONAVIRUS! Part 39 and 40” for more about the day)

WHY DO ALL THESE POLICE DEPARTMENTS HAVE MILITARY ASSAULT WEAPONS, UNIFORMS, EQUIPMENT AND ENDLESS ROUNDS OF TEARGAS TO USE ON PEOPLE WHEN SCHOOLS AND HOSPITALS DON’T HAVE ENOUGH SUPPLIES OR PPE?

Trump hasn’t taken questions from the press in 18 days! Turn off his Twitter account!
Rudy Giuliani needs to be disbarred immediately. Then arrest and prosecute him for treason, sedition, obstruction and fraud along with all the other GOP Traitors.
Donny Junior, Rudy’s son, Mark Meadows, Stephen Miller, and a bunch of other Trump stooges got the CoronaVirus. And it couldn’t happen to a better bunch of a**holes.
And Chuck Grassley, and a couple more GOP Traitors got it too.
126896087_2484950818476700_4905953013267603097_n

THIS NEXT TWEET IS JUST ANOTHER CRIMINAL ACT.
And if Trump is serious, then he is truly delusional as well as HIGH AS F*CK.

126924498_4244489495577584_7099779837161971415_o

6:00am: We woke up too early this morning. We did get some sleep, but not a lot.
We took the dog outside, and now we’re working on this Blog and streaming “Mike Campbell (ex-lead guitarist and vocalist for Tom Petty) and the Dirty Knobs LIVE AT THE TROUBADOUR” from Friday night. Free to watch on fans live and youtube until November 30!

“Somewhere, somehow somebody
Must have kicked you around some
Who knows, maybe you were kidnapped
Tied up, taken away and held for ransom, honey
It don’t really matter to me baby
Everybody’s had to fight to be free
You see you don’t have to live like a refugee (don’t have to live like a refugee)
No you don’t have to live like a refugee (don’t have to live like a refugee)
You don’t have to live like a refugee (don’t have to live like a refugee)
Oh, oh, oh”Refugee by Tom Petty and Michael W. Campbell

We got the newspapers and took the dogs out again and then they got fed.
We had a cup of espresso and now it’s 6:30am….

8:05am: Just went out front and told the guy throwing broken up concrete into the steel dumpster “It’s Sunday. There’s no construction on Sunday.” They’ve been jackhammering and spray painting all week so there hasn’t been any peace. And they’ve really left a mess on the street for months and there’s a graffitied dumpster sitting in the street right now. And the neighbors on the side of the house are having some kind of illegal gathering/photo shoot/filming, so there are a bunch of cars and people on the street before 8:00am on Sunday. WTF? And one car is partially blocking the driveway, and these are neighbors we already have problems with….

9:15am: Update! We put our boombox in the backdoorway and turned the music up loud. Soon had a visit from the “filmmakers” (Santa Monica high school) asking if we could turn the music down…. and we told them they were blocking our driveway and to respect our space and the neighborhood. They apologized and said they would move the car.
No respect needed a lesson. Honking at 7:30am on a Sunday. People live here.
Then we turned off the music. And they moved the car.
We worked in Hollywood too long to put up with this.
Time for NFL SUNDAY FOOTBALL.

On The Menu: 3 bacon & cheese hotdogs with mustard and onions
126537196_4252158861477314_4086525009562694696_n

And then for dinner, PIZZA! We had pizza delivered! But the good pizza this time.

“Sounds like someone has a case of the Mondays.”

Professor Pickle’s pic of the SpaceX Launch from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California on Saturday. The Falcon 9 launched the Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich ocean-mapping satellite for NASA and the European Space Agency, and the first stage booster was also landed safely.

9:20am: Another Monday morning.
Dogs are fed, newspapers retrieved, had a glass of juice and a cup of espresso.
Construction resumes across the street. They got a new dumpster!
So there’s a guy throwing pieces of broken up concrete
into an empty steel dumpster right now.
Our housekeeper came early, so we are chillin’ with the dogs in the Home Office, while she cleans. She came once last week and did a great job, so she is doing stuff that hasn’t been done in awhile and we are just staying away. It’s a beautiful day outside here in the SFV today and we’ve been outside with the dogs a lot already this morning. But now the thumping of the concrete and steel is beginning to annoy us.

See, we are annoyed again…. and not just about construction now.

At what point do you just have to say WHAT ARE YOU DOING?

Ok, time for lunch. ok, not yet…
2:00pm: Lunch.

On The Menu: Toasted egg bagel with lox, cream cheese, and cucumber; dill pickle, pita chips, carrot and celery sticks, red grapes, strawberries, raspberries and an orange. And a doubleshot iced espresso to drink.
127519480_4252158391477361_3456722305936906714_n

And then we took a nap. (or tried to sleep)
And then the big dog was barking… WOKE ME UP AGAIN.
and wouldn’t stop until we got up and told him to shut up.
He was on the other side of the house
and NO ONE WAS THERE TO TELL HIM TO STOP BARKING!

5:15pm: Monday Night Football
LosAngelesRams v TampaBayBuccaneers
We are rooting for the Rams (by default). Los Angeles has a NFL football team!
We also have the Chargers, but we hate the Chargers….
We are a Denver Broncos Fan! But they just suck this year.
AND ALL NFL FOOTBALL SUCKS THIS YEAR!
There’s a PANDEMIC!
There should be NO ORGANIZED TEAM SPORTS – Sorry the TRUTH HURTS.
But there’s too much money involved for the public good to matter.
They need the distraction of sports and gambling to subdue the public….
255000+ US CITIZENS ARE DEAD! And the Federal Government is doing nothing.
And BlackLivesMatter until it gets in the way of a big paycheck. Ask Lebron.
The Lakers and Dodger are Champions! And all of Los Angeles has Coronavirus.
People don’t watch sports by themselves in their own little bubble.
And the NFL games aren’t played in a bubble.
There are new cases reported every week.
OPIATE OF THE MASSES…. indeed. (if you don’t know, google it)

HOLD UP! STOP! WAIT A MINUTE!
Just saw a Capital One commercial with Samuel L. Jackson as an elf,
and John Travolta as Santa. “Pulp Fiction” references throughout. HAHAHA!

6:40pm: Halftime.

Game Over. Who cares. The Rams won. right?
Just so done.

On The Menu: Leftover pizza for dinner.

Screen Shot 2020-11-23 at 18.06.44
257000+ Reported US DEAD as of today! And it’s not getting better anytime soon.

And the GSA finally certified the election for Joe Biden.
Michigan, Georgia and Nevada all certified the election for Joe Biden.
President-Elect Joe Biden announced some of his cabinet and staff nominations.
Trump still refuses to concede, and keeps sending “fundraising emails” to his Trumpers….

It’s Stormy Daniel’s Day! (or so we have proclaimed)120175554_1230580290632078_5818078488817078188_n

Trump knows he’s a LOSER.
He got to play today when he pardoned the Thanksgiving turkeys on TV.
“Corn” and “Cobb” got a full pardon from Lyin’ Cheeto Trump.
Everyone wants to know who else he is going to pardon….
and he looks the LAME DUCK FOOL as he smiles and panders to the crowd.
The Dow-Jones topped 30000 for the first time on bullish*t news about the vaccines and the fact that Trump is officially done…. and he took credit for it! The ultimate self-own.
So how’s your stock portfolio doing? Right? Oh, you don’t have one? Why not?
And if you do, how’s it doing? Are you killing it? Making millions? If yes, good for you.
258000+ AMERICANS ARE DEAD IN 9 MONTHS!
That’s 258000+ HUMAN BEINGS!
TWO HUNDRED FIFTY-EIGHT THOUSAND PLUS PEOPLE!
crimesagainsthumanity (not the card game)
GENOCIDE. Defined as the deliberate killing of a large number of people,
from a particular nation or ethnic group with the aim of destroying that nation/group.
TREASON and SEDITION! Arrest all of the GOP Traitors and conspirators!
THEY ARE ALL GUILTY! THE ONES WHO WERE SILENT ARE GUILTY TOO.
They betrayed their oath of office. They aided and abetted Trump’s criminal family!
THEY ALL KNEW AND THEY BOUGHT AND SOLD STOCK
WHILE THEY CALLED IT A HOAX IN PUBLIC!

Wednesday, November 25, 2020 – The Day Before Thanksgiving

Nov. 25, 1965. Arlo Guthrie took out the garbage.

“You can get anything you want at Alice’s restaurant
You can get anything you want at Alice’s restaurant
Walk right in, it’s around the back
Just a half a mile from the railroad track
You can get anything you want at Alice’s restaurant”

Woke up and the television wasn’t working. The physical TV works just fine.
And the AppleTV box is working…. BUT SPECTRUM TV IS NOT WORKING AGAIN!
We had Spectrum installed last week and WE FUCKING HATE IT!
The user interface sucks, the AppleTV remote sucks with the interface,
and this is the SECOND TIME IN A WEEK THAT THE SERVICE ISN”T WORKING!
So, we’re trying to watch the news on the interweb this morning and we are MAD.

AND TOMORROW IS THANKSGIVING!
And there’s not a lot to be thankful for…. (be thankful if you still have your health)
Nine months in self-isolation. With no end in sight.
And NO WE ARE NOT GOING TO OUR SISTER’S HOUSE FOR DINNER.
No parties. No gatherings. No events. We remain ZERO CONTACT! Singular. Solo. Alone.
Read our previous Blog Posts about Thanksgiving (there’s one for every year 2013-2019).

NOTE: We are GRATEFUL! We are THANKFUL!
We are

8:40am: So this morning has been a BALL OF ANGER and frustration.
WE ARE EXPERIENCING TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES! TECHNOLOGY SUCKS!
And it’s not even 9:00am. The dogs are fed and we got the newspapers.
We’ve had two cups of espresso and now we need to eat something….

On The Menu: We made breakfast for lunch. 2 eggs, bacon, 2 mini croissants, red grapes, raspberries, strawberries, and an espresso to drink

Big Bird for Thanksgiving Day: “BigBoxStore” delivers!
127573816_4252156678144199_1632560326492759365_o

Even though we aren’t going to dinner at our sister’s house, we are still cooking a turkey and stuffing because TRADITION. We bought ingredients for Grandma’s Cherry Cheesecake, but we don’t want make it. Not in the holiday mood at all after yesterday and today. Just want it to be over and the Thanksgiving food prep torture to end. Then on to Christmas and Hanukkah.

This is a “socially distanced” Santa at the Fashion Show Mall in Las Vegas, Nevada last weekend (from a livestream) and there are new Covid-19 restrictions in Vegas as of today!
127712626_4253454001347800_2880706550394027870_n

4:00pm: We ate and took a nap with the dogs while the gardener was here, and we feel a little better now. It was a rough morning and the holiday season has us very much on edge….
as if we weren’t already there. Our anxiety, depression and anger level is extremely high.
Someone shared this chart, so we are sharing it here. Please get HELP if you need it!
126867877_3886287628056806_3103112178646119499_o
Well, we’ve been yellow-orange for months now.
And maybe getting closer to red. Which isn’t good.
And WE ARE BORED. We want to travel. We want to hang out with friends.
We want to go anywhere, without wearing a mask, and being in a constant state of fear.
THE DANGLING CARROT PROMISE OF AN EFFECTIVE VACCINE MEANS NOTHING!
There is no vaccine. There might be one someday. THERE IS NO VACCINE NOW!
There isn’t even Federal testing, tracking or a containment plan.
WE ARE GOING BACK TO “SAFER-AT-HOME” in Los Angeles (which didn’t work).
Closing down outdoor dining is a step, but unless you shut down everything it won’t work.
Not when Cigar Bars are open with a bunch of guys sitting around smoking in a closed room.
Not when people aren’t taking it seriously and not wearing masks, or not covering their nose.
PEOPLE DON’T KNOW HOW TO SOCIAL DISTANCE!
THEY DON’T EVEN KNOW HOW FAR SIX FEET AWAY ACTUALLY IS.
