Wednesday, February 17, 2021 – ASH WEDNESDAY
“Is this a… what day is this?”
(Don’t tell your friends they have a smudge or dirt on their forehead today)
LENT BEGINS TODAY. Sorry Christians.
Lent begins on Ash Wednesday. It is a period of reflection before the Easter holiday that ends on Holy Thursday three days before Easter Sunday. There are 40 days of Lent for Christians, Anglicans, Roman Catholics, Eastern Orthodox, Lutherans, and Methodists to replicate Jesus’ sacrifice and his 40 days in the desert. They refrain from both food and festivities. Lent is also observed by not eating meat on Fridays and fasting on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday.

And Mount Etna erupted again! The second time this month!
The last time that Mount Etna erupted was on February 3, 2021.
All through January 2021 and another major eruption on December 13, 2020
Europe’s highest Mediterranean island mountain and most active volcano
is located on the east coast of Sicily, in Italy.
In the province and city of Catania, near Messina.
“Effusive (lava flows) and mildly explosive (strombolian) eruptions.
Both summit and frequent flank eruptions.”
UNESCO, named Mount Etna a World Heritage Site in 2013.
The Catania Airport is currently closed.

12:30am Wednesday: We just had breakfast for dinner at midnight.
On The Menu: 2 eggs over medium, bacon, tater bites with BBQ sauce, celery and carrot sticks, 1/2 of a large avocado, dill pickle slices, an orange, and an iced espresso to drink

2:22am: Fully wired from the espresso and the double nap this afternoon.
Worked on finishing our Monday-Tuesday Blog Post “CV! Part 126”
President’s Day! Mardi Gras! Fat Tuesday! And now Ash Wednesday! HUMPDAY!
It’s cold and windy outside tonight. But we feel lucky we aren’t FREEZING.
We are really worried about our friends trapped in Texas. People are dying in the USA!

NOTE: We aren’t going to talk politics. But we do want to point out that the Governor of Texas and the GOP Traitors were calling for secession last month… and now they are requesting FEDERAL AID because they are totally unprepared and completely dependent on the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT every time they have an weather emergency or natural disaster.
And President Joe Biden didn’t hesitate to declare an Emergency and offer aid!

8:45am: We woke up. Always a good start to the day.
The dogs got fed and went outside. The water guy dropped of the water.
We got the newspapers and scooped some poop.
We made an iced espresso and then we drank it.
We ate a toasted everything bagel with cream cheese.
Our friends who were trapped in Corpus Christi are HOME in Houston!
We are very relieved. They don’t have power, but they’re not in danger of FREEZING now.

Trump Plaza in Atlantic City is NO MORE. It was imploded beautifully this morning!
(click through these pic fast to watch it fall or go watch the vid)

Hey, it’s Wednesday!
wednesday
NOTE: We just heard there will soon be a
Tim Burton created “Wednesday Addams” program on Netflix!

10:25am: It’s a beautiful day! And we were just outside with the dogs.
Now they’re asleep in the Home Office. Happy dogs!

12:00noon: A cup of espresso.
We just published our previous Blog Post “CV! Part 126”

Americans are FREEZING TO DEATH IN TEXAS! (and other places too)
Texas Governor Abbott is blaming windmills and “The New Green Deal” for his TOTAL FAILURE! There is NO POWER. No electricity, No HEAT, No water, JUST MORE COLD!
(no power to pump water and it’s freezing cold) THERE ARE LINES FOR COLD FOOD!
LINES FOR GASOLINE AND PROPANE! THEY ARE RUNNING OUT OF FIREWOOD!
And there’s a CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC too.
Millions remain without power for another freezing cold night!
HOPE THEY REMEMBER in 2022 that THE GOP TRAITORS IN TEXAS CAUSED THIS!
They sold out the PUBLIC for ERCOT the Texas Power Company and Corporate Donors.
THE ENTIRE TEXAS ENERGY GRID ALMOST TOTALLY COLLAPSED ON MONDAY!
EufNO_oU4AYULM1

During the worst energy emergency in the history of Texas, Traitor Ted Cruz and his family traveled to the luxury Nizuc Resort & Spa in Cancun, Mexico. Millions of people in the Lone Star State are freezing without electricity and/or water. Most have no water and/or are under a Boil Water Advisory. Texans are dying from the cold and carbon monoxide poisoning (at least 23 people have already died), while Ted takes his family on a tropical vacation. #TedFled
Here’s Ted’s Washington DC office phone number: 202-224-5922

There are reports of price gouging and super-inflated prices on food, water, and housing.
Report price gouging at
readyharris.org or text 346-354-7459.
Violators face fines of up to $250K.
President Joe Biden is sending generators and diesel fuel to Texas to restore power at hospitals, communications and water supply facilities. FEMA is also responding to the emergency with food, water and blankets.

Ralph Bakshi for the WIN!

Remember when half of Manhattan, other parts of New York City,
and large parts of New Jersey lost power for four days because of a storm?

Rush Limbaugh is finally DEAD. AND GOOD RIDDANCE.
They should bury him under a dance floor and sell tickets.
He sold HATE, RACISM, ANTI-SEMITISM and MISOGYNY for 30 years.
May he burn in Hell for all of eternity. (he was a sad disgrace for a human)
The World is better place with him not in it. AND WE ARE NOT SORRY.
150915299_10218917759154978_2531400887995205777_n
When Jerry Garcia died, Rush called him “just another dead doper. and a dirt bag”

12:25am Thursday: recapping Wednesday afternoon, and evening now.
We ate some leftover pasta for lunch. We took a shower. We played with the dogs.
The dogs got fed and we were outside with them (more than once).
We watched TV and surfed the interweb. We fell asleep and woke up just before midnight.
And we still haven’t eaten dinner.

Newspapers, mail, garbage cans…. DRINK COFFEE. Drink Water.
We are chillin’ with the dogs in the Home Office and listening to Pink Floyd.

It’s NATIONAL HATE FLORIDA DAY!
florida-weather-guide

Florida is the southeastern most state. It has hundreds of miles of beaches.
It is the flattest state, and the third most populous, with a population of ~21Million people.
Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de León, called it la Florida (“the land of flowers”) when he discovered it in 1513. Florida was admitted as the 27th state on March 3, 1845.
One of the 7 original Confederate States,
Florida seceded from the Union on January 10, 1861.

Because F*CK FLORIDA! (and it’s National Hate Florida Day)

11:45pm: Recapping Thursday afternoon and evening.
We fell asleep with the dogs at about 4:30pm and slept for about an hour.
We took the dogs outside and they got fed supper.
Then we started cooking dinner: A DELICIOSO STEAK TACO FEAST!
We ate about 6:30pm. Then we fell asleep after dinner and woke up about 10:30pm.
We had a “nightmare” about coyotes and the fat raccoon….so just a little PTSD today.
Now it’s just before midnight and we are working on this Blog Post.
Watching YouTube vids on the TV and on the desktop again.
And we woke up just in time to see the end of another high speed pursuit!
Screen Shot 2021-02-18 at 22.09.12
DUI suspect led the California Highway Patrol on a freeway chase. He took off his shirt and was waving it out the window. He exited near Glendale off the 134 freeway, and the CHP was going to pit him, but he turned and the CHP just t-boned him. He tried to crawl to the back of the SUV and the officers broke the windows and removed him. Suspect in custody.

We had to go back and watch it again. Glad we woke up in time for the end.
Pretty much the most excitement we’ve had today.

Today is Pluto Day! Celebrate the discovery of the NINTH PLANET!
Clyde Tombaugh, an American astronomer, discovered Pluto on today’s date in 1930.
Pluto is named for the Roman G-d of the Underworld and has five known moons.
The International Astronomical Union (IAU) changed Pluto classification to a Dwarf Planet.
IAU claimed Pluto failed qualify as a full-sized planet. A full-sized planet must orbit Sol, the sun; have a sufficient mass to “assume hydrostatic equilibrium”, and “clear the neighborhood around its orbit.” Pluto only has the first two, but not the third.
One day on Pluto is equal to 6.4 days on Earth. (6 days, 9 hrs, 36 mins)
Hundreds of dwarf planets exist, but the IAU only officially recognizes five:
Ceres, Pluto, Eris, Haumea, and Makemake.

What Humpday?

BE KIND TO YOUR MIND! (edited from the CDC)
For informational purposes only! Consult your local medical authority for advice.
Mental health problems are common.
Here are some ways to cope with stress and stay mentally healthy:

Pause. Breathe. Notice how you feel.
Take slow deep breaths, stretch, or meditate.
Observe how you are feeling and what you are thinking, without judgment. Instead of responding or reacting to those thoughts or feelings, note them, and then let them go.

Take breaks from upsetting content
Make time to unwind. Try relaxation techniques and listening to music.
Try to do some other activities you enjoy.

146105745_1822221894601360_1200376054397546948_n

TAKE CARE OF YOUR BODY!
Exercise regularly.
Even one session of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity reduces anxiety,
and even short bouts of physical activity are beneficial.
Get plenty of sleep. Be consistent.
Go to bed at the same time each night,
and get up at the same time each morning,
including on the weekends.
Try to eat healthy, well-balanced meals.
Add healthy fats, cut sodium, bump up your fiber,
and aim for a variety of colors on your plate.
Reach out and stay connected
Talk with people you trust about your concerns and how you are feeling.
Check in with your loved ones often.
It can help you and your loved ones feel less lonely and isolated.
