Monday, March 15, 2021 – The Ides of March! BEWARE!
(Read our previous Blog Post “The Ides of March”)

58442736_10218734104528711_4591619828141260800_n
Thanks to William Shakespeare and the play “Julius Caesar” we’ve all heard of The Ides of March. The story goes, in 44 BC a seer told Julius Caesar that his downfall would come no later than the Ides of March (March 15th). Caesar ignored him and later joked with the seer “The Ides of March have come.” The seer replied, “aye, Caesar; but not gone.” Caesar then attended the meeting of the Senate at the Theatre of Pompey, and was murdered by as many as 60 conspirators.
Gaius Julius Caeser (July 13, 100 BC – March 15, 44 BC)

Caesar:
Who is it in the press that calls on me? 
I hear a tongue, shriller than all the music, Cry ‘Caesar!’ 
Speak; Caesar is turn’d to hear.

Soothsayer:
Beware the Ides of March.

And then the Senators got stabby and it didn’t end well for Caeser.
“Et tu Brute?”

9:05am: Good morning Monday! They said it was gonna rain. And it’s raining.
It’s been raining for a few hours, not too hard, but constant, and there’s a lot of water.
“We need the rain” yep, We need the rain. And it’s snowing higher up too because it’s cold.
Do you have “A Case of the Mondays?” (read our previous Blog Post)

The Grammys were last night. Big whoop.
Congratulations to Billy Strings! Bluegrass Artist.
Oscar! Oscar! Nominations were announced this morning…. and the winner is……
A bunch of films we didn’t see, BECAUSE what a joke.
DOES ANY OF THIS MATTER? WHY IS THIS NEWS? WHAT IS IT COSTING?
Award shows? This year? Really? Why not just cancel and give the money to relief.
You don’t need a three and half hour commercial for your entertainment products….
people are trapped at home with no alternatives, just market directly to them.
Send the awards to the winners by Amazon delivery. GAME OVER.
NO ONE REALLY WANTS TO WATCH A SELF-INDULGENT AWARD SHOW THIS YEAR.
Okay, rant over. Enjoy your celebrity news, gossip and award shows. None of it matters.

The dogs got fed and they went outside before and after. We got the newspapers.
We made some breakfast. We didn’t really have dinner last night: we ate one cold slice of pizza and that was it, so we were hungry this morning and so we had dinner for breakfast.
On The Menu: 2 hotdogs with mustard, cheese and chopped onions with a dill pickle for breakfast. And an espresso to drink.

2:15pm: And then the housekeeper came. We got the mail.
We isolated with the dogs in the Home Office while she was here.
When she finished, and after she left, we took the dogs outside again.

HEY NOW! KEEP ON ROCKIN’ IN THE FREE WORLD! THANK YOU JAMILY! 

And there were TWO late night pursuits last night!
The first was a nut job street racing through traffic on the freeway at really high speed.
The driver blew the engine, thankfully, and the car slowly came to a stop on the highway.
And the driver and his passengers surrendered.
The second pursuit happened at midnight, but there was still a helicopter to cover it!
Dude stole a stakebed truck and spike strips were deployed, the front tires went flat, but the driver kept pushing the truck until he was grinding the front end on the road at 30mph.
He drove on for a long time trailing sparks until the truck caught on fire. He pulled to the center median, with the flames under the cab, and foot bailed across the freeway, ran up the side of a hill and just gave up on the hillside when he ran out of motivation. Ended in Upland.
Suspect in custody, Truck on fire. IT WAS A REALLY GOOD ONE FOR US!

5:10pm: We ate the last four slices of leftover pizza. We took the dogs outside.
We made another espresso.
Now we’re back chilling’ in the Home Office until it’s the dog’s suppertime.
We have to adjust their feeding schedule because of Daylight Savings,
another problem from this bulls*t time change.

Deb Haaland was confirmed as the next Secretary of the Interior 
and the first Native American cabinet-member in U.S. history today!
WE MUST RESTORE OUR NATIONAL PARKS AND NATIONAL MONUMENTS!
REMOVE THE TRUMP STOOGES FROM THE NATIONAL PARK SERVICE!
REGULATIONS AND PROTECTIONS FOR LAND, AIR, AND WILDLIFE AGAIN!
Oil, gas, mining and tinder companies must pay for the damage they do!
Cancel all contracts and lease deals done during the Trump administration!

11:25pm: Monday Night Live! Recapping the evening. 
We waited to feed the dogs and we said, “oh we’ll just lie down for a minute”….
And two hour later we woke up and fed the dogs at 8:00pm.
(which is actually only 7:00pm because of Daylight Savings)
So we took the dogs out, and they got supper, and we took the dogs out,
AND IT IS COLD OUT TONIGHT. And this is Los Angeles winter in Spring. WTF?
We talked to our friend in Texas earlier, and it’s colder here than it is there today.
The dogs are happy, and we are back to our normal state of anxiety and stress almost.
Still recovering from last week and the weekend…. feeling better now.
We just took the dogs out and drank an iced espresso,
and we are thinking about food and it’s 11:40pm.

It’s Mr. Video! This dude cracks me up with his reaction videos on YouTube.

On The Menu: Corn chowder with bacon and crushed Ritz crackers
161058143_4569463629746834_771864916100100389_o

4:45am: We made some corn chowder and ate it. And then we had some ice cream.
We took the dogs out again. They slept, we didn’t. We watched youtube. 
We woke them up, took them outside again, and now we’re back in the Home Office.
 (and we think we fell asleep around 6:00am)

It’s National Panda Day!
National-Panda-Day-March-16
Giant Pandas are native to mainland China,
Pandas are members of the Bear family (Ursidae).
Pandas are an endangered species: There are only ~1864 in the wild and 100 in zoos.
Pandas eat mostly plants (bamboo) and they do not hibernate in the winter.

It’s National Artichoke Day!
The artichoke was named the state vegetable of California in 2013!
Castroville, California is the “Artichoke Capital of the World”
***99% of North American artichokes are grown in California!***
Artichokes are from the Mediterranean.
Artichokes are one of the oldest foods in the world.
The Greeks and Romans ate artichokes in the 8th century! 

It’s National Freedom of Information Day!
Congress passed the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) in 1966.
Happy birthday James Madison! (the 4th President of the United States)
madison
Known as the “Father of the Constitution” and the Architect of the Bill of Rights
Madison was born on this day in 1751 in Port Conway, Virginia.
Married to Dolley Payne Todd, the first First Lady, on September 15, 1794.
James Madison died on June 28, 1836, at his Montpelier Estate in Vermont.

 8:30am: F*ck you Daylight Savings time.
We are all messed up because of the time change. Spring forward my a**. 
We woke up. We took the dogs outside. It’s cold out there. The dogs got fed. 
We took the dogs outside. We got the newspapers. Chilly willy Billy.
We made and drank a cup of espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.
And so good morning Tuesday.

Ewe_tDGWgAITs_8

9:30am: Well, we wasted an hour watching the “news” and working on this Blog Post.
BIRDS AND SQUIRRELS! (and rats, possums, raccoons, skunks, cats, and coyotes)
Just more distraction. But what else do we have to do today? 

HAPPY SPRING BREAK!
Have you seen the COVID-19 reports from Florida and Texas?
Have you watched the lifestreams from Las Vegas? HOLY SH*T!
Expect another spike in two weeks….. GREEDY AND STUPID AMERICANS that’s all.
This pandemic will never end. Thousands more will die. And hey, BASEBALL SEASON!
Sporting events, Live Music events, movie theaters, indoor restaurants are open again….
CA Theme Parks (Disneyland) to enforce out-of-state visitor ban. Will open on April 1st.
WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG? 

COVID-19 is the leading cause of death in the United States:
535000+ Reported COVID-19 Deaths in the United States
 (as of 3-16-2021)
FIVE HUNDRED THIRTY-FIVE THOUSAND AMERICANS ARE DEAD.
56600+ Reported COVID-19 Deaths in California
48500+ Reported COVID-19 Deaths in New York

*FULLY VACCINATED means TWO WEEKS after the second dose! 
You are not fully vaccinated after the first dose,
and you are not fully vaccinated until TWO WEEKS after the second dose.
TWO WEEKS AFTER THE SECOND DOSE!
Vaccines don’t stop you from spreading the virus!
Vaccines may protect you from getting really sick,
and may prevent death if you contract COVID-19.
YOU CAN STILL GET SICK AND DIE.
YOU CAN STILL SUFFER FROM LONG-TERM EFFECTS.
YOU CAN STILL GET OTHER PEOPLE SICK.

The COVID-19 UK variant is 64% more likely to kill you.
25% of new cases are UK variant, and it will soon be the dominant strain in California.

10:25am: Another hour wasted. We made and drank another cup of espresso.
We decided to fast this morning and not eat until we get really hungry later.
11:45am: We took the dogs out to run around again. It’s a beautiful day after the rain. 
Very bright out. Sunny and cold. Almost noon now. 

DAY 365! ONE YEAR! CELEBRATING 365 DAYS IN A ROW! 
160991943_4571878502838680_5575354039274380271_o
Celebrating Life 365 Days! Keep on Rockin’ in the Free World!
4:35pm: Josh Daniel ROCKS! Encore! Encore! Wrapping up the first show.
TWO SHOWS TODAY! Next show at 6:00pm PST. Having fun on the interweb!
These daily musical livestreams have really helped us get through the isolation.

NOTE: We started the pandemic watching Melissa Etheridge’s wonderful livestreams everyday, but then her son overdosed, and they switched to a “pay for the performance monthly” model, so we left her behind. Too many other FREE options for entertainment. We all know artists have to make money, but the audience ultimately gets to decide what they want to pay money for.

And hats off to “420Live with Jeff Kravitz” (the photographer)!  He has great guests on his podcast and he doesn’t usually wear a jacket, white shirt, and tie:
Screen Shot 2021-03-16 at 17.05.03

We took a nap and when we woke up we took the dogs outside again.
They were chillin’ in the office while we enjoyed the first show.
Now they’re taking a nap and we are thinking about food.
We did eat a few crackers. And we just drank another espresso. 
And it’s TACO TUESDAY! And we have taco makings. SO TACOS TONIGHT!

383827_329474817079091_1663254046_n

6:15pm: CHILL AFTERNOON. We didn’t do sh*t.
We thought about going to the market this morning.
And we thought about running errands this afternoon.
We realized there was no reason to leave the house today.
We have food and the errands can wait until tomorrow.
We thought about going out, but the party was on the interweb today!
We scooped some poop. And prepped the dog’s supper.
Time for Josh Daniel Day 365 Celebration Show #2! ROCK ON JOSH!
Screen Shot 2021-03-16 at 18.17.12

11:00pm: How did it get to be ELEVEN O’CLOCK?
We just prepped our dinner and it’s ready for cooking. Tacos in just a bit!
We watched the news, we watched the inter web, we worked on our Blog Post(s).
The dogs got fed and went outside on both sides.
And they were chilllin’ and then they were napping.
We have no idea how it got to be late…. so time for dinner.
We haven’t eaten all day, except for a stack of Ritz crackers along the way.

We got the newspapers. We thought about going to the market.

Now we’re chillin’ in the Home Office with the dogs.

8:05pm: The egg came first. Breakfast for supper.
We took the dogs outside again and then put them in the bedroom while we cooked and ate.
Then we took them outside again, fed them dinner and took them outside again.
And then we had them in the Home Office and we took them outside again.
Then we put them into the bedroom and that’s where they are right now for a little while.
We are updating our Blog Post. We have another Blog Post that we need to post now.
But we have to finish it tonight. And it’s St. Patrick’s Day, so we aren’t going anywhere. 
On The Menu: Two eggs over medium, bacon, grilled chicken breast,
two toasted English muffins with peanut butter and raspberry jam,
with another espresso to drink

Ireland, green fields, a rainbow and sheep!

“Low lie, The Fields of Athenry
Where once we watched the small free birds fly
Our love was on the wing
We had dreams and songs to sing,”
“The Fields of Athenry” written in 1979 by Pete St. John

Ireland is the second-largest island in the British Isles,
and the third-largest island in Europe.

Green Beer? “Mark it zero!”

“Green beer” is a  brewers’ term still used today. It is beer that’s too young or “green” and contains acetaldehyde, which is bad because it’s not fully fermented and not good for drinking.

In 1910, the Spokane Press headline: “Green Beer Be Jabbers!” greenbeerpraise.0
Tthe First Avenue Bar in Spokane, Washington, served it to patriotic Irishmen (and to anyone else) who wanted to drink some ‘green beer’. It was later credited to Professor Thomas H. Curtin, a physician, he made it for his clubhouse in New York as early as 1914, but other green beers appeared around the same time and earlier.

To make “GREEN BEER” just add blue food coloring to a yellow beer. SCIENCE (not magic).

“When Irish eyes are smiling,
Sure, ’tis like the morn in Spring.
In the lilt of Irish laughter
You can hear the angels sing.
When Irish hearts are happy,
All the world seems bright and gay.
And when Irish eyes are smiling,
Sure, they steal your heart away.”

Lyrics by Chauncey Olcott and George Graff, Jr.; Music by Ernest R. Ball
Copyright: 1912 by M. Witmark & Sons, N.Y.
“When Irish eyes are smiling” was written for Olcott’s production of “The Isle O’ Dreams”, and Olcott sang the song in the show. It has since been covered by many famous singers and recorded over 200 times (and the copyright of this song is now in the public domain).

Fighting Irish! Put Up!

“The Wild Rover” is an Irish drinking song on the topic of temperance:
“I’ve been a wild rover for many’s the year
And I’ve spent all me money on whiskey and beer
But now I’m returning with gold in great store
And I never will play the wild rover no more
And it’s no, nay, never
No, nay never no more
Will I play the wild rover
No never no more”

7pm St. Patrick’s Day

Sláinte means “health” and sláinte mhaith means “good health”
in Irish and Scottish Gaelic. It is a common drinking toast in Ireland,
The proper response is sláinte agatsa, which means “to your health as well”

Shamrocks are associated with St. Patrick. 
Did he really use the shamrock to explain the Christian Trinity?
