National Devil Dog Day! – “Devil Dogs” was the nickname given to the US Marines by the Germans during World War I. And then “Devil Dogs” became a tasty single-serving treat in the mid-1920s, with a layer of cream filling sandwiched between two layers of Devil’s Food cake,

National Babe Ruth Day!
The first Babe Ruth Day was April 27, 1947, at Yankee Stadium in New York.

7:55am: And it’s the last Tuesday in April today.
We woke up before 5:00am. We waited and then took the dogs outside.
The dogs got fed and we went outside again and then again.
We drank a cup of espresso. Drink coffee. Drink WATER!

9:15am: We watered the backyard, because it didn’t rain. We ate a toasted sesame bagel with cream cheese and then drank another cup of espresso.
It’s going to be a beautiful day.
The SuperMoon was hiding out last night, first behind the big tree, then it got overcast and it was obscured by the clouds….

We drank a cup of espresso and now we need to eat some food.

5:00pm: Hello again. We watched some Youtube. We did some personal grooming.
We were thinking about shaving off our “quarantine” beard,
so instead we just gave it a good trim. And we cleaned it up again.
Looking good now. And no one will see.
We almost went to the market this morning and the bank this afternoon,
but we said NO, and stayed the fuck home with the dogs. BORING. But safe.

7:40pm: Okay. We ordered a pizza delivery for dinner. And the pizza man came.
We took the dogs outside. And we fed the dogs supper.
And we took the dogs outside again. And we ate some pizza. YUM YUM.
And we drank an iced espresso. And we published our previous Blog Post.

We watched TV, surfed the interweb, and fell asleep with the dogs.
We woke up around 3:00am, and took the dogs outside.
Then we put the dogs back to bed and updated this Blog Post.

4:30am: Wednesday morning early. We’re awake now. Maybe hungry.
We took the dogs outside, and then put them back to bed.
Thinking about coffee. Trying to decide whether we’re going back to bed now.

7:30am: NOPE. We didn’t go back to bed. We worked on our Blog Posts.
We drank a cup of espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.
And now it’s time to feed the dogs and get something to eat.

94640151_3616574528369087_6029142800837115904_n

1:00pm: We took the dogs outside. The dogs got fed. We took the dogs outside.
We got the newspapers and the mail. We made another espresso.
We tried to bake a recipe we saw online that looked easy and interesting.
Ice Cream Bread
2 mugs of vanilla ice cream (melted)
1-1/2 cups of flour
Mix into a batter, Bake in a loaf pan at 350 for 40-45 minutes.

It did not end well. We might try it again, but not right away.
We took the dogs outside again. it’s a gorgeous day in the SFV!
We scooped the poop, and took the dogs outside one more time..
And we just made lunch.
On The Menu: Toasted bagel with lox, cream cheese, and lettuce; dill pickle,
celery & carrot sticks, and an iced espresso to drink

We spent the afternoon with the dogs. We went outside again.
And we took a nap after that.
The gardener, pool guy and the exterminator all came today.

3lpow-Pp
Tomorrow is President Joe Biden’s 100th Day in Office.
6:10pm: President Joe Biden’s Address to Congress. 100 DAYS.
We have the dog’s supper ready to go, but we are watching the speech now.
“MADAME SPEAKER, MADAME VICE-PRESIDENT” – History!
“GO GET VACCINATED!” (if you haven’t yet) – “A dose of Hope.”
I hate the whisper tone, and the stories are kinda boring.
Hooray Healthcare! Hooray for cutting Child Poverty!
New Jobs! Economic Recovery. RECORD GROWTH after RECORD DECLINE.
“Build Back Better” – Infrastructure. YAY! YAY SCIENCE! Yay Government.
Selling the AMERICAN JOBS PLAN. YAY CLEAN WATER! (lead pipes are bad)
Yay high-speed internet. YAY KAMALA HARRIS! Modern Clean Power Grid? Yay.
Women in the workforce. Childcare. Elder Care! Medicare. Do you care?
YAY CAREGIVERS! “Jobs, Jobs, Jobs” to fight Climate Change. Electric Cars!
Farmers! Wind Turbines made in “Pittsburgh instead of Beijing” Batteries!
“BUY AMERICAN!” – Create American Jobs!
“A blue-collar blueprint to build America” – The Middle Class, Unions!
$15 Minimum Wage! Equity for Women. Equal Pay!
Research! TECH! END CANCER! “Doing nothing is not an option.”
China. Autocrats. American Families Plan. Education. Childcare (preschool).
YAY Dr. Jill Biden! Medicare! Lower Drug Prices! Healthcare! YAY!
TAX CORPORATE AMERICA AND THE WEALTHIEST 1%! YAY!
SLAMMING THE TRUMP AND GOP TAX GIVEAWAY TO THE RICH NOW!

“Grow the economy from the bottom and the middle out.”
Okay we have to feed the dogs now. But it was a good speech.
And President Joe is still going. Foreign Policy. Allies. Global Economy.
Continued to watch the speech, sort of, in the kitchen, while feeding the dogs.

7:44pm: We took the dogs outside. And we fed the dogs.
And we took the dogs outside again. then we reheated some pizza.
On The Menu: Three slices of leftover sausage and meatball pizza. Yum.
And a Coke to drink. It just seemed like a thing tonight. Pizza and a Coke.

And then we watched the GOP LIAR (and hey, he’s an African-American too)
Tim Scott is a lying GOP TRAITOR! He stood next to Trump. HE IS LYING!
His, “I was a poor black child” was disgraceful (AND RACIST).
Glad he called himself an “Uncle Tom”. It’s like a “Chapelle Show” skit.
“UNCLE TIM” is TRENDING ON TWITTER!
Lying. Lying from a script. His Grandfather would whoop the sh*t out of him!
AND FUCK YOU MITCH MCCONNELL AND THE GOP TRAITORS TOO!

FUCK YOU RUDY GUILIANI! Hope you forgot to scrub you hard drive.
The FBI served search warrants on Rudy this morning! LOCK HIM UP!
The Feds also seized a computer belonging to Giuliani’s assisant Joann Zafonte,
and she has been subpoenaed to testify before a federal grand jury next month.
“They also raided the home of another Trump “lawyer” today, Victoria Toensing,
who along with Giuliani was also knee deep in the Trump-Ukraine scandal.”
LOCK THEM ALL UP! 573000+ Reported US CITIZENS ARE DEAD!
TRUMP AND THE GOP TRAITORS DID THIS! Crimes Against Humanity!
And they are guilty of Treason, Sedition, Felony Murder, and Genocide!

6:45am: It’s Thursday. All day.
We woke up just before 3:00am. We were awake for a little bit.
We took the dogs outside. And then we all went back to bed for an hour.
We woke up and took the dogs outside again. We set up their breakfast.
We cooked a bunch of chicken breasts, chopped them up, and froze them.
We reheated the last four slices of leftover pizza and ate them.
We got the newspapers. And now it’s time to feed the dogs.

DISNEYLAND (and California Adventure) RE-OPENS TOMORROW!

11:20am: We took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs.
We played with the dogs. We took the dogs outside. We went back to bed.
We woke up and we were really tired. Tried to sleep a little more.
Woke up again. The housekeeper came again today.
We drank a cup of espresso and a little juice.
And then we got dressed – time to leave the house.

180560731_10158161458361408_5918260998626053103_n

It’s a beautiful day. And already 88 degrees and climbing!

Okay, it’s the anniversary of the 1992 LA Riots
(following the Not Guilty verdict in the Rodney King beating trial)
4 white racist LAPD Officers were acquitted by a jury in Simi Valley.
EVERYONE SAW THE VIDEO. THEY BEAT A DEFENSELESS MAN.
AND THEY BEAT HIM WITHOUT MERCY. AND IT WAS ALL ON TAPE.
Colorlines Screenshot Rodney King Beating for NOW 030316
And LAPD Chief Daryl Gates let it happen. LAPD failed the city and citizens.
THERE WAS NO JUSTICE. And there was no justice for Latasha Harlins.
No Justice. No Peace. BLACKLIVESMATTER!


WAITING AT CVS….
179573650_4706866122673250_6739485461275299801_n

1:50pm: We got our second dose of the Moderna vaccine today. Yay!
Yay Science! 28 Days later. And now TWO MORE WEEKS. Feeling relieved.
We waited in line for about 10 minutes, then sat down and got the shot.
We joked with the the two injectors (nurses, we think) and thanked them a lot.
We wandered around the CVS and made a $6.00 purchase to thank them too.
Then we went to the bank and made a deposit. And then we came home.
We changed back into our house clothes, and took the dogs outside.
And now are all back chillin’ again in the Home Office.
And the dogs are sleeping. And the TV is off. And everything is really quiet.
Only the sound of the big dog snoring softly, and the typing on the keyboard.
SIGH. Okay, enough of that. We need to eat something. And some music too.

*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.

5:00pm: We took the dogs outside and then we went to bed.
We slept until just before 5:00pm, but we woke up more than once.
We woke up again and took the dogs outside again.
We are still hungry, and we didn’t eat.
So we drank a little juice and ate a piece of candy just now.
Oh, and now our shoulder is hurting.
We felt like crap this morning, so it’s hard to tell if we feel like crap now.

155099365_10225570682919916_4992171520986066394_o

7:30pm: We tooth dogs outside. We fed the dogs. We took the dogs outside again.
And now we’re back chillin’ in the Home Office. We are feeling “MEH”….and a little sore.
We ate a dill pickle and drank an iced espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.
And “California’s Golden Parks” with Huell Howser is on KCET now.
And it’s the HETCH HETCHY episode. (that’s in Yosemite National Park)
We backpacked through Hetch Hetchy and up into Tiltill Valley a long time ago.
And it was fantastic! Hetch Hetchy is above Yosemite Valley, and was dammed up,
and now provides a water supply for San Francisco and the Bay Area.
But, it’s a beautiful natural granite valley formed by glaciers, just like Yosemite Valley,
and they built a Dam and filled it with fresh clean water from the Sierra snowmelt.
And Tiltill Valley is above Hetch Hetchy in the Yosemite backcountry,
another granite valley in the National Park, only accessible by foot.

On The Menu: Toasted bagel with lox, cream cheese, and lettuce;
and a celery stalk with peanut butter. And we are still drinking a lot of water
.

bobdylanelectric-1965-740x390

We watched “History Detectives” – an episode we’ve seen before on Rock and Roll stuff.
It features Bob Dylan’s Fender guitar from Newport ’65, a couple of Beatles’ autographs, and a Frank Zappa art piece. Great episode.

SPOILER ALERT! SPOILER ALERT! SPOILER ALERT!


The 2012 episode found out that the airplane pilot’s daughter had the guitar in New Jersey, and after a legal battle, she sold the Stratocaster at auction. Indianapolis Colts owner and Rock and Roll collector, Jim Irsay bought Dylan’s Newport guitar in 2013 for $965,000.

Irsay also bought Jerry Garcia’s one-of-a-kind “Tiger” guitar, made by Doug Irwin, at auction for $957,000 in 2002, and spent Five Million Dollars on some of David Gilmore’s guitars when they were auctioned for charity a few years ago. He has an amazing collection.


10:05am: We took the dogs outside again. We made another cup of espresso.
And then we cut up a pineapple, and ate a couple pieces.

12:25pm: We are chillin’ in the Home Office with the dogs again.
We took them outside and now they’re napping.
We made another cup of espresso and ate brunch/lunch.

celery & carrot sticks, Italian salami, and a black&white cookie

Choreboy is about to arrive, and now there’s some stuff to do around the house.

So, Choreboy did two loads of laundry and scooped all the poop.
He cleaned out the fridge, which was already pretty empty.
And then he did some dishes. He’ll be back tomorrow most likely for more.
It’s cold, and gray, and windy outside today.
We ate a toasted egg bagel with peanut butter and raspberry jam for lunch.
And we made some popcorn and drank a coke during the Oscars.

Questlove Oscar Trivia with Lil Rey

Feeling really Diverse as they bulls*t on Live TV. Donna Summer for TGIF! “Let’s Dance” won an Oscar for “Thank G-d It’s Friday”. Glenn Close “Da Butt” and this must be set-up… she swore on Live TV too. Glenn Close just put the boogie in her butt!
“Glenn Close correctly identified a clip of Da Butt written by Marcus Miller and performed by the DC-based band Experience Unlimited (EU) from Spike Lee’s 1988 film, School Daze.”
Questlove is inspired. He directed the “Summer of Soul” documentary – short preview, and Zendaya for Lancome “Idole”, Flonase, Jeff Goldblum annoying you for Apartments.com, Jimmy Kimmel Live ABC Promo, ABC “The Good Doctor” promo, Diversity again, she’s jamming, for Grey Goose Essence, and now The Resorts World commercial!

Delta bumper – “air travel provided by”  
Senovva bumper – LED Walls “provided by”
And it pretty much sucked, and wasn’t very entertaining.
If we weren’t blogging it. We would have turned it off at the beginning.
No surprises. And not very exciting. Just pretty standard awards format,
with the usual COVID-19 adjustments, Nice that there was live audience, but it was STUPID and NO MASKS just sets a bad example for the public and will probably affect PUBLIC HEALTH. But, hey, lots of commercials, and lots of DIVERSITY. See Oscar isn’t so white…..
YEAH RIGHT. Alright, we’re done . That sucked. It’s going to be a ratings disaster tomorrow.
The dogs are sleeping here in the Home Office and we are hungry for dinner. 

8:22pm: “Oscars After Dark” following the Oscars. ABC is so damn DIVERSE!

Trent Reznor, Jon Baptiste, and Atticus “After Dark”


9:20pm: We stopped, took the dogs outside,
and then went into the kitchen and made dinner.
And it’s drizzling a little outside. They said it might rain and they were right.

On The Menu: Breakfast for Dinner! Breakfast Burrito!
2 eggs over easy, bacon, and a quesadilla with salsa verde 
178966739_4697407930285736_3960988353607113068_n

We took the dogs outside again. And then they fell asleep.
And then we fell asleep…..

NO END TO THIS BULLSH*T. NO END IN SIGHT.
WE WON’T BE AT YOUR PARTY ON SUNDAY NIGHT!
ZERO CONTACT IS STILL THE RULE!
DO YOU THINK THAT I’M A FOOL?
DO NOT PARTY! AND HERE’S WHY:
IF YOU PARTY, YOU MIGHT DIE!

NOTE: We stayed the fuck home, and watched the Academy Awards’ Train Wreck.


Okay, here’s one for #StorySunday (on Monday):
Way back in the mid 1980s, we started gambling in Reno, Lake Tahoe and Las Vegas. And then we started working in the Hollywood film industry in 1989, and we met Frankie Valli and a old school “Friend of Frank’s” comedian named Joey Villa. Joey was friends with Meshulam Riklis and his wife Pia Zadora. Riklis was a corporate raider who bought the Riviera in 1973. Our friend Joey was booking the comedy room at the Riviera and also appearing in the “Splash” Revue stage show for many years, so when we visited him in Las Vegas in 1991, it was all VIP fun and a big party with Perry Como in the Penthouse. It was Old School Vegas, with real mobsters, and black tie glamour, at the Riv. “And now it’s all gone” They blew it up and tore it down, and now it’s a parking lot for the expanded LV Convention Center. Vegas just eats its own. So, we have a matching set of souvenir Riviera mugs, and ashtrays, and matches and even mini shampoo bottles from the many hotel stays. And sometimes we stayed next door at the El Morrocco/La Concha Motel or at another Strip hotel. And so we found this mug when thrifting, right before they announced the closing and demolished the hotel in 2015. We have so many crazy Las Vegas stories. They moved the Crazy Girls bronze statue to Planet Hollywood, so you can still see rub their butts for good luck. (if you’re interested you can read more about Las Vegas, the Riviera, and Joey Villa in our previous JoshWillTravel Blog Posts)

Monday, April 26, 2021 – PINK SUPERMOON TONIGHT (8:32pm PST)
Full Moon is named for the Spring bloom of the pink wildflower native to eastern North America: Phlox subulata (creeping phlox or moss phlox), also called “moss pink”

2:50am: Hello Monday morning, we’re up early. We fell asleep with the dogs for a little bit.
Not sure how long. It’s too early. So, we thought we’d update this Blog Post…. 

4:45am: Two hours later. And we decided to try to watch Disney/PIXAR’s “Soul” again.
Bob Dylan’s “Subterranean Homesick Blues”
Mystics Without Borders and Moonwind Stardancer on the brink of madness!
NOTE: “Soul” was great. It was beautiful. And it had a great Disney ending.
soul

11:55pm: Recapping Monday. Nothing happened.
We didn’t mean to take the day off, but it happened.
The dogs got fed. The dogs went outside. We got the newspapers and the mail.
The housekeeper came. We took a nap with the dogs. We drank espresso.
Drink coffee. Drink water.
It was a nice day outside. And now it’s overcast and drizzling a littlest midnight.
We ate a toasted bagel with cream cheese for lunch. And we just made dinner.
On The Menu: Mac’n’cheese just before midnight (and we are done now)

Well, it’s down at the end of Lonely Street, at Heartbreak Hotel”

1:45am: The morning after. And it’s only 2:00am.
We fell asleep after 10:30pm with the dog and just woke up.
We took the dog outside.
And we got something in our right eye, and it’s really irritating.

1:00pm: And now we have a very RED EYE today. Like, seek medical attention time.
We watched Marvel’s “Avengers- Endgame” finally this morning.
And then we took the dog outside and the dogs got fed. And then we went to bed.
We hoped our eye would be better, but it’s not. And it’s swollen and hurts too.
FUCK.FUCK.FUCK.FUCK.FUCK.FUCK.FUCK.FUCK.FUCK.FUCK.FUCK.FUCK.
And we drank a cup of espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.

2:00pm: We made another cup of espresso and ate two mini-bran muffins.
The mobile groomer is here today to wash, cut, and do a teeth cleaning for the dogs.
3:00pm: The gardener is here now, the dogs are back in the Home Office.
They are clean, beautiful and happy. We calmed them down, took them outside,
and now they are in the bedroom while the gardener does his thing.

Recapping Wednesday:
It kinda sucked. Then we got hungry.
We watched TV and surfed the interweb. Our right eye was all fucked up.
Not the vision, but it’s red and irritated, and annoying.
Periodically during the day we flush it with warm water.
Sometime after 9:00pm we turned off the lights and laid down, and fell asleep.

On The Menu: Pizzatime! We ordered an early pizza delivery, around 6:00pm.
And an extra-large pepperoni and sausage pizza appeared – YUM YUM!

Thursday, April 22, 2021 – HAPPY EARTH DAY!
This year’s theme is “Restoration of the Environment”
LOVE YOUR MOTHER EARTH! RESTORE OUR EARTH!
Take action today to help end plastic pollution, fight climate change
and Global Warming, and protect our land, air, water, and wildlife!

Earth is approximately 4.6 billion years old. The oldest known rocks are about 4 billion years old (rocks older than 3 billion years are rare) and the oldest fossils of living organisms are less than 3.9 billion years old. With a radius of 3,959 miles, Earth is the biggest of the known terrestrial planets, and the fifth largest in our solar system.

Planet Earth – the “3rd Rock from the Sun”

“Picture a bright blue ball just spinning, spinning free
Dizzy with eternity
Paint it with a skin of sky, brush in some clouds and sea
Call it home for you and me
A peaceful place, or so it looks from space
A closer look reveals the human race
Full of hope, full of grace, is the human face
But afraid we may lay our home to waste”
– Grateful Dead “Throwing Stones”

The name “Earth” is at least 1,000 years old and it is the only planet whose name doesn’t come from from Greek or Roman mythology. The name is from Old English and Germanic origins and means “ground”.

Nature is a Mother….

71 Percent of the Earth’s surface is covered with water. Earth’s atmosphere is 77% nitrogen, 21% oxygen, with traces of argon, carbon dioxide and water (H20). Earth’s oceans have an average depth of about 2.5 miles and contains 97 percent of the planet’s water. Earth has a central (inner and outer) core, a rocky mantle and a solid crust.

9:40am: We went to bed again after 6:00am and slept for a couple hours.
We woke up. The dogs went outside. The dogs got fed breakfast.
We drank a cup of espresso. And our eye is a little better this morning.
Doesn’t look better, but it feels a lot better today. Just going to wait it out.
It’s gray outside this morning, and not sunny yet.

The housekeeper is here again today. So we are chillin’ in the Home Office.

And it’s also National Jelly Bean Day!
Enjoy the sweet classic candy with a soft chewy center and a thin candy coating.

Fun Facts about Jelly Beans:

Became popular in the 1860s, when William Schrafft, a Boston candy maker,
encouraged people to send jelly beans to Union soldiers fighting the Civil War.

Jelly beans were originally a popular Christmas candy.
The candy became an Easter staple in the 1930s because of its egg shape.

Jelly beans were once sold separately by color.
And they were the first candy sold by weight instead of by the piece.
It can take seven to twenty-one days to make jelly beans.

The blueberry-flavored Jelly Belly was created for Ronald Reagan’s inauguration.
Jelly beans were his favorite candy and they have even been to space (thanks to Reagan).

Enough jelly beans to circle the Earth five times are eaten every year!


Jelly Bean Shot

Ingredients:
1/2 oz Blackberry Brandy (or Grenadine)
1/2 oz Anisette (or Sambuca, anise-flavored liqueur)
1/2 oz Southern Comfort

Directions:
Pour Brandy (or Grenadine) into a tall shot glass
Float the Anisette (or Sambuca) on top of the Brandy
Float the Southern Comfort on top of the Anisette
Serve and enjoy

How to “Float” (Bartending 101):
Hold a bar spoon upside down over the drink and rest the spoon’s tip on the inner edge of the glass, just above the top of the liquid. Slowly pour over the back of the bar spoon and onto the top of the previous ingredient. Move the spoon up as the liquor level rises.

The key is in the three layers of liqueurs: poured on top of each other in order with the heaviest on the bottom and the lightest on top. “Float” the liqueurs by pouring them over the back of a bar spoon. This creates a pretty triple-layered shot. The ingredients have specific densities that make the separation easy. The greater the density difference, the more defined their separation. Density is determined by the sugar and alcohol content. Grenadine is one of the heaviest mixers used for cocktails and will almost always sink to the bottom of the glass, even if it is the last ingredient added.
NOTE: The Anisette will give the drink a “black licorice” jelly bean taste.

Jägermeister is a type of liqueur called Kräuterlikör (herbal liqueur).
You can substitute it for the Anisette/Sambuca or just do a shot or two of Jäger!
“Jägermeister is a digestif made with 56 herbs and spices. Developed in 1934 by Wilhelm and Curt Mast, it has an alcohol by volume of 35%. The recipe has not changed since its creation and continues to be served in its signature green glass bottle.” – from wikipedia


Fruity Jelly Bean Shot!

Ingredients:
1/2 oz Blue Curacao
1/2 oz Pineapple Juice
1/2 oz Cherry Vodka

Directions:
Pour blue curaçao into tall shot glass.
Gently float pineapple juice on top.
Finish with a float of cherry vodka.

4:45pm: We drank an iced espresso. We took the dogs outside and we had the dogs in the Home Office. It never really got sunny today. We took a nap with the dog. We ate two slices of cold leftover pizza. We watched the news. We surfed the interweb. And that’s Thursday right? It’s all good today. We woke up from our nap and the housekeeper was gone and the house is clean. The dogs are happy and they were groomed yesterday, so they are pretty clean too.
And the dogs just went outside again.

Earth orbits the sun and completes one daily rotation every 23.9 hours. It takes 365.25 days to complete a one year trip around the sun.  The Earth’s axis is tilted 23.4 degrees to the plane of the planet’s orbit around the sun and this causes the cycle of seasons.

Earth is the only known planet that has a single moon. The moon is (an average distance of) 238,855 miles away from Earth.

“Just remember that you’re standing on a planet that’s evolving
And revolving at 900 miles an hour.
It’s orbiting at 19 miles a second, so it’s reckoned,
The sun that is the source of all our power.”

NATIONAL DAY OF SILENCE – (a day-long vow of silence to) protest bullying and harassment of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) students and the people that support them!

Screen Shot 2021-04-22 at 21.04.44
Vegas was active on the Thursday night Livestream from Las Vegas, Nevada.
(not as busy as last week though – March Madness and Spring Break)
New hotels/casinos Circa and Virgin are OPEN! Summertime is coming!
The new Resorts World (Hilton/Conrad/Conracks) is scheduled to open in June.
Restrictions and Regulations have been relaxed, or ignored, or been given lip service.
The Low-Rollers keep coming to spend their stimulus money and take a cheap vacation.
The hotels are re-opening what was closed, taking reservations, and everyone is hiring!
Businesses are having a hard time finding low-wage employees now.
It’s very hard to get an UBER or LYFT, because there aren’t enough drivers working.
And there’s a shortage of rental cars, as we mentioned previously, so rates are sky high.

12:50pm: Hello Friday! We went to bed early and woke up late.
We took the dogs outside. The dogs got fed. We took the dogs outside again.
We went back to sleep with the dogs. We woke up and drank a cup of espresso.
We took the dogs outside again. And now we’re in the Home Office chillin’.

1:35pm: We took the dogs outside again. Now time for some lunch.
On The Menu: 3 toasted mini-bagels with lox, cream cheese, and lettuce, dill pickle,
and cran-raspberry-orange juice to drink

5:25pm: Friday evening. Another week. Another weekend.
Waiting for our second shot….. staying home. Staying healthy.
No parties. No dinners out. No going out in public except when necessary.
We should have done some errands today, but we said f*ck it.
We hung out with the dogs. We took the dogs outside. We took a nap.

There were TWO PURSUITS this afternoon!
The first was over quickly, guy stole a Fire Truck – Battalion Chief’s SUV, and then he pulled over when the tires got flat and surrendered. The second dude, a DUI suspect (who was seen drinking during the chase) called the cops on himself, then ran it up from freeway to surface streets, through traffic, and all around town, before they finally PIT maneuvered him.
And he was just sitting there on the curb (not complying with officer’s orders) until the K-9 unit arrived and then he quickly surrendered when the dog started barking. HAHA.
Screen Shot 2021-04-23 at 14.47.23

5:50pm: We just set up the dogs’ supper in the kitchen and now it’s feeding time.

6:25pm: And the dogs are fed. And we took them outside on both sides.
Now we’re all back chilling’ in the Home Office watching “BBC World News”
and network and local news too.
6:50pm: And now they’re all asleep. It’s like having happy tired children.
GOOD SHABBOS EVERYONE! We’re getting hungry for our dinner now.

And there was another pursuit! We didn’t watch it, and it was over before we tuned in.
A suspected carjacker was being tracked and he just pulled over and surrendered.

AND DOES ANYONE CARE ABOUT THE OSCARS?
The Academy Awards are happening on Sunday. Who’s going to watch?
Elton John is having his Oscar party online and everyone’s invited for $.
(of course the money goes to charity)
We don’t know who’s nominated, or why. We heard “diversity” which is hilarious.
The OSCARS ARE SO WHITE and SO “INDUSTRY INSIDER” RUN.
At least Harvey Weinstein is in prison. We hate the ceremony for it’s ADVERTISING.
Both onstage, onscreen, and during the many commercials. Even the Red Carpet is just product placement and advertising – “promote your sh*t to the public” is the game.
And we’ll have an awards show where we give each other prizes for “best whatever”….

10:35pm: We ate a little cheese and a toasted croissant. We drank an iced espresso.
We took the dogs outside again. Now it’s time for dinner. What shall we have to eat?

We never did decide what to eat.
Instead we ate a black&white cookie and called that dinner.

2 – 8oz packages of cream cheese (softened)
2-1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (or other cheese if preferred)
1 packet of ranch dressing mix

We reheated and ate two slices of leftover pizza from last night for breakfast.
And we are waiting for the other dogs to come home from their vacation this week.

And a lot of barking and running around and butt sniffing.
So we took them all out in the big yard and now they’re happy.

1:13pm: We’re back to chillin’ in the Home Office.

3:15pm: And after a short nap with the dog, we’re awake again….F*ck.

1:30am: And then we woke up. And now it’s Monday morning.
We’re just adding Monday to this Blog Post. Not setting up a new Blog now.
NOTE: Saturday afternoon and Sunday totally sucked
due to reasons and circumstances beyond our control.

2:55am: We might just take Monday off.

mktplmonpromo

3:50am: We are awake and watching “Echo In The Canyon” on Netflix
and we just made a cup of espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.

10:05am: We went to bed eventually and slept until 9:00am.
The dogs got fed and went outside. We made another cup of espresso.
The housekeeper came to clean, so we are isolating in the Home Office with the dog now.
The closing arguments of the Derek Chauvin (the MURDER of George Floyd) Trial today.

12:30pm: Well, we tried to take a nap. Fucking vacuum cleaner woke us up.
So disappointed. And now we’re wide awake. It’s a beautiful day out today.

3;00pm: We had the dogs in the Home Office and then we took them outside.
The housekeeper left about an hour ago. And now it’s time for lunch,
so we went into the kitchen and did just a little cooking.
On The Menu: 2 hotdogs with bacon, pepper jack cheese, chopped onions
and mustard with dill pickle slices on the side

9:15pm: Recapping Monday. Nothing happened.
We watched Marvel’s “Avengers – Infinity Wars” again this afternoon on Disney+.
We hung out with the dogs. We took a little nap.
We took the dogs outside a few times.
We fed the dogs. And the dogs went outside again.
We just made a double iced espresso, and we also drank one earlier. Zing!
(Oh, and this one has a scoop of vanilla Haagen-Daaz ice cream in it)

It’s NATIONAL GARDENING DAY!
Roses are red and white and blooming!

NATIONAL PAN AMERICAN DAY – first observed in 1930, today commemorates the First International Conference of American States (concluded on April 14, 1890) that established the International Union of American Republics, which became the Pan American Union, and led to the establishment of the Organization of American States (OAS) in 1948. They are still located in Washington DC. 
It’s also NATIONAL PAN-AMERICAN WEEK.

NATIONAL DOLPHIN DAY!
“No aquarium, no tank in a marine land, however spacious it may be, can begin to duplicate the conditions of the sea. And no dolphin who inhabits one of those aquariums or one of those marine lands can be considered normal.” – Jacques Cousteau

Screen Shot 2021-04-14 at 11.37.16

I sat upon a promontory,
And heard a mermaid, on a dolphin’s back,
Uttering such dulcet and harmonious breath,
That the rude sea grew civil at her song;
And certain stars shot madly from their spheres,
To hear the sea-maid’s music.
– William Shakespeare, from “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”

Dolphin
“There’s no question dolphins are smarter than humans as they play more.”
– Albert Einstein


5:22am: We woke up and went back to sleep. And then we woke up around 4:00am.
We set up this Blog Post. We took the dog outside. We made a cup of espresso.
DRINK COFFEE. DRINK WATER. DRINK COFFEE. DRINK ESPRESSO.

9:36am: Good morning. We woke up again, took the dog outside again, and went back to bed again. Then we woke up, and we took the dog outside. The dog got fed breakfast. And we took the dog outside again. We got the newspapers. We drank another espresso and ate a toasted croissant (plain). And then we updated this Blog Post.

NATIONAL EX-SPOUSE DAY – Big thanks to my ex-wife! THANK YOU!
D-I-V-O-R-C-E. Thank you for not being married to us! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
Time heals all wounds, and allows you to see the errors you have made in the past.
“Learn from your mistakes.” – SO TRUE! And then don’t make the same mistakes again.

11:15am: Well it was a beautiful day outside and then there were gray clouds in the sky.
We took the dog outside again. It was cold out and looking like it was going to rain….
And now it’s sunny outside again. Hate it when its like this, pick one kind of weather please.
We took the dog outside again and then we just put him down for a nap.

NATIONAL PECAN DAY – a member of the hickory family, the pecan tree is native to the central and southern US. The name Pecan is Native American (Algonquian), and means “requiring a stone to crack”

BLACKLIVESMATTER! STOP POLIE BRUTALITY AND VIOLENCE!
STOP KILLING UNARMED BLACK AND BROWN PEOPLE!

1:45am: Recapping Wednesday, on Thursday Morning:
We ate a dill pickle, a toasted bagel with cream cheese, a small microwave burrito, and some red licorice today. And we drank a lot of espresso, hot and iced. Nothing happened.
We were outside with the dog often. It decided to be a sunny day after noon.
The gardener came. It was National Gardening Day, so we did a little work outside too.
We fed the dog supper. We watched TV, surfed the interweb, and worked on this Blog Post.
We fell asleep and woke up after midnight. So now it’s Thursday AM.
And we thought about “what’s for dinner?” and what to eat all day,
So now we are really hungry for some food after 1:45am.
We just took the dog outside and made a cup of espresso. Time for dinner or breakfast!

World Art Day! – an international celebration of the fine arts on Leonardo Da Vinci birthday.
The International Association of Art founded World Art Day on April 15, 2012,
The first official World Art Day celebration in the US was in Los Angeles in 2015

6:00am: We got woken up by a possum…. well, the possum set off the motion alarm, and we woke up sometime between 4:00 and 4:30am. And then we tried to go back to sleep. No luck.
We took the dog outside and then drank a cup of espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.
We never did eat, so we’re really really hungry, and we’re going to make some breakfast soon.

6:33am: We drank another cup of espresso and ate a toasted croissant with a little butter.
Not really breakfast, but it will hold us over, until we get motivated to cook.

7:50am: Okay, we took the dog outside. We fed the dog breakfast.
We took the dog outside again. We got the newspapers. And the morning stuff is done.
And the little boy wants to play, so we are playing fetch with dog while we type this.
We actually do that a lot, or other things with the dog while we write.
And he was just in our lap and now it’s time for him to take an after-breakfast nap.

8:20am: Nope. We’re still playing….. he’s so happy. 

8:55am: We went to the kitchen and banged out breakfast. It was really good.
On The Menu: 2 eggs over easy, bacon, and twice cooked potatoes
174339989_4664950866864776_7853740486570212484_n

10:05am: So, we started binge-watching “Undercover Billionaire” on HULU this morning.
Here’s the story so far: Billionaire is undercover in Erie, PA, trying to start a Million Dollar Business. Glenn started with $100.00 and sleeping in his car. He raised money by salvaging tires, then flipping used cars, and now he’s trying to flip a house to get money to open a Beer and BBQ Restaurant. Pretty cool so far. Not sure how much is set up yet, but it’s fun to watch.
It’s also a “school of business” in real-world terms and practice. Oh yeah, Glenn is actually billionaire Glenn Stearns from Bear-Sterans. The only downside is the fucking ads.
Four episodes in and the commercials are just making the later episodes unwatchable….
so we might be done now. HULU just loads the programs up with SH*T ADS for stuff
WE WILL NEVER BUY and it just ruins the viewing experience.
So we are writing and editing this Blog Post during the ads.
And NOBODY WANTS TO WATCH ADS DURING THEIR PROGRAMS!!!! 
And we’re talking to you too YouTube. It’s a dead model. NO ADS. Figure it out.

We made a Meme: (from a fb ad today)
174522555_4665258566834006_7570315795132236134_n

1:30pm: We got the mail. We took the dog outside again. And he’s napping now.
It’s a beautiful day today. Sunny and warm in the SFV. And we’re hungry again.
We just made and drank an iced espresso and ate a tiny dill pickle. Still hungry.

7:55pm: We ate a quesadilla with salsa around 4:00pm and then fell asleep.
175092022_4669011719792024_6544330145856402436_n
We woke up and took the dog outside. We fed the dog supper and snacks.
We took the dog outside again. We played with the dog.
Now we’re back in the Home Office chillin’ on Thursday night.

9:35pm: We got dressed and ran an errand, it’s weird being out at night.
Not a lot of traffic. Not a lot of stuff still open at 9:00pm…. just weird.

The Sun in Aries faces off with Pluto in Capricorn, the confusion of Neptune in Pisces,
and the Gemini moon and Saturn in Aquarius,.
“The best way to handle the energy of the day is by remaining flexible and open to different options.” and “You might be feeling restless and frustrated now as you’re being asked to slow down and take things in smaller bites. Doing things in increments is beneficial for your craft and your well-being.”

9:30pm: Recapping Friday Afternoon. 

We cooked some chicken for the dogs. Then we made some lunch.
On The Menu: Two Steak Soft Tacos with grilled onions

We played with the dog. We drank an iced espresso.
We took the dog outside. We fed the dog. We took the dog outside.
Watched TV, surfed the interweb, watched YouTube vids, took a nap…
Choreboy showed up this afternoon. Watered the little backyard.
Did some household stuff. Just a little “Spring Cleaning.” 
Vacuumed and cleaned up the entire Home Office, which really needed it.

And we just ordered a pizza delivery., and it came really fast again.
We’re a good customer. And a good tipper. Thank you very much.
On The Menu: Extra-large sausage and meatball pizza. Good Shabbos!

4:40am: Monday morning. We are still awake. We might have tried to sleep.
We put in a load of laundry. We just published a Blog Post (Part 148).

On this day in 1861, the Civil War begins. Confederate General Beauregard attacked Fort Sumter in Charleston, South Carolina. And after thirty-four hours of artillery bombardment, the fort was surrendered.

On this day in 1981, NASA launched Columbia, the first space shuttle, into orbit.

Happy National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day!
(for breakfast, and we already ate the other half)
171189585_4655845931108603_4204346125394170028_n

7:15am: We took the dog outside. We fed the dog breakfast.
We took the dog outside again. We made a grilled cheese sandwich for breakfast.
We made an iced espresso. Drink coffee. Drink water.
We ate our sandwich and drank our espresso.
Now we’re chillin’ in the Home Office watching the morning “news”.
We just put our laundry in the dryer. 

172681204_1875198919303657_1982656123911640348_n

9:00am: We were outside in the backyard.
We just scooped a sh*tload of poop. Needed to be done.
Its a gray day this morning, the marine layer hasn’t burned off yet.
And we made another cup of espresso. We ate a banana.

National Colorado Day!GO BRONCOS!
The Territory of Colorado was organized on February 28, 1861.
The Centennial State was admitted as the 38th state on August 1, 1876.
The population of Colorado is ~5,800,000 (as of 2020).

Unknown

The state was named for the Colorado River.
Spanish explorers named the river Río Colorado (Red River).

Denver is the capital and most populous city in Colorado.

Denver_Broncos_Helmet

GO BRONCOS!

The southwest corner of Colorado is the Four Corners Monument.
Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, and Utah meet,
the only place where four states meet in the US. 
The Territory of Colorado’s boundaries are straight lines of latitude and longitude
as defined by United States Congress in 1861.
And that’s why it’s the shape of a rectangle, like Wyoming and Utah.

3:10pm: The housekeeper came and cleaned the house today.
We isolated in the Home Office with the dog while she was here.
We took a little nap, and when we woke up, she was gone.
We took the dog outside. We played with the dog.
We drank an iced espresso.
And it’s a beautiful sunny day out now. Really nice day.

We made another grilled cheese sandwich for supper.
We drank another iced espresso. We fell asleep for a couple hours.
We woke up and took the dog outside again.

12:12am: Happy Tuesday! Just StayTheF*ckHome!

1:30am: We are tired and wide awake. Explain that.
Insomnia again? No, just our sleep schedule is non-existent.
We just made a cup of espresso, because why not?
DRINK COFFEE. DRINK WATER. STAY AWAKE ALL NIGHT.

172769962_10224576911521370_3045784466664384620_n

We took the dog outside.

173742538_10157740898193204_6219012428884797848_n

10:55am: We went to bed early AM, and woke up around 9:00am.
We took the dog out around 4:00am, and we took him out again when we woke up.
If you’re wondering where the other dogs are, they are on vacation for the week.
So the little boy went outside again, and got fed, and went outside again.
It was gray this morning, but it’s beautiful outside now. Warm and sunny again today.

We got the newspapers and the mail. We played with the dog.
We drank espresso and ate a toasted bagel with cream cheese.
We listened to music, we watched TV, we surfed the interweb.
And we updated this Blog Post…. which we are doing again right now.

4:05pm: We got dressed and ran some errands.
We went to the bank, the post office, and then we went shopping….
and we spent $9.00 on some toys at a small Thrift Shop.
First time we’ve been out “thrifting” in a year! (read our previous Blog Post from a year ago)
NOTE: When we went to the bank, it sucked. The guy in front of me in line WAS NOT wearing a mask, but he was wearing a face shield. Another couple was wearing their masks under their noses. And there wasn’t any social distancing between the windows, so we pointed it out to the teller, and she helped us at one window further over…. but it still sucked. And we had to wait inside. Still doesn’t feel safe, and some businesses still aren’t being safe and following state/federal guidelines. We didn’t encounter anyone at the Post Office checking our PO Box. But then we interacted with a few people (STRANGERS) at the four thrift stores/pawn shops we visited…. so weird. We need to find a great gift, and we really hate shopping online.

11:50pm: Recapping Tuesday evening and night.
We hung out with the dog. We took the dog outside. We fed the dog dinner.
We took the dog outside again. We made dinner. We ate dinner.
We fell asleep with the dog. And then we woke up around 11:30pm
On The Menu: Steak dinner. Thin cut steak with sauteed onions, baked potato with BBQ sauce, celery and carrot sticks, dill pickle, and cran-raspberry-orange juice to drink. 173847949_4660895847270278_3122660838293577004_n

It’s National Peach Cobbler Day! Here’s a good recipe:


OLD FASHIONED SOUTHERN PEACH COBBLER – Makes 18 Servings
Prep time: 30 minutes – Cook time: 1 hour 10 minutes
Additional (chill) time: 30 minutes – Total: 2 hours 10 minutes

Searching for a peach cobbler recipe that will make a yummy dessert?
Made with fresh peaches and a homemade pie crust.
Worth the time – No shortcuts. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.

Ingredients:
  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons granulated white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg 
  • 1 cup shortening
  • ¼ cup cold water
  • 3 pounds of fresh peaches (peeled, pitted and sliced)
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • ¾ cup orange juice
  • ½ cup butter
  • 2 cups granulated white sugar
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch 
  • 1 tablespoon butter (melted)

Directions:

  • Step 1: Use a medium or large bowl. Sift together flour, sugar, and salt. Work the shortening with a pastry blender until the consistency is coarse and crumbly.
    Then in a small bowl, whisk together the egg and the cold water.
    Sprinkle on the flour mixture, and mix in (with hands) to form the dough into a ball.
    ***Chill for 30 minutes***

  • Step 2: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
    Roll out half of the dough into 1/8 inch thickness.
    Use a 9×13 inch baking dish, cover bottom and halfway up sides with the dough.
    Bake for 20 minutes, or until golden brown.

  • Step 3: In a large saucepan, combine the peaches, lemon and orange juice.
    Add 1/2 cup butter, and cook over medium-low heat until butter is melted.
    In another mixing bowl, stir together 2 cups sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon, and cornstarch;
    Mix into the peach mixture. Remove from the heat, and pour it into the baked crust.

  • Step 4: Roll the remaining dough into a thickness of 1/4 inch.
    Cut into half-inch-wide strips. Weave the strips into a lattice over the peach mixture.
    Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon sugar, and drizzle with 1 tablespoon melted butter.

  • Step 5: Bake 35 – 40 minutes, or until the top crust is golden brown.

Today is National Unicorn Day! 
Celebrate the mythical and magical horse-like creature with
a horn growing from its forehead, a fantasy symbol of purity, love and magic.
“A unicorn is just a horse with a point of view.” – Ron Sexsmith

8:05am: Good morning. It’s Friday. But it’s not Good Friday. That was last week.
The dogs got fed. The dogs went outside.
We drank a double espresso to start the day. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.

National Winston Churchill Day!
12477598
Commemorate the day in 1963 when President John F. Kennedy
made Prime Minister Winston Churchill an honorary citizen of the United States.
It was the first time in U.S. history an honorary citizenship was granted.
President Lyndon Johnson proclaimed November 30, 1964, Sir Winston Churchill Day.
He was born in 1874 and died in 1965. His mother Jennie Jerome was American.
He won the 1953 Nobel Prize for Literature.

11:00am: It’s a beautiful day again. 71 degrees (F) outside.
The sun is shining. The birds are chirping in the backyard.
We took the dogs outside again and now they’re napping in the Home Office.
Today is blowing by, we don’t know how it’s already 11:20am now….

We bought this beautiful vintage blue glass ashtray for 5.00, at a thrift shop in Ashland, Oregon, on one of our road trip vacations to The Ranch. It is “the piece” that triggered our collector response, and got us started collecting again. We had to stop buying in 2019, and then the pandemic hit, and we stopped everything in March 2020, so we have a large inventory of collectibles in storage right now. And we really want to display the objects we love, and sell off the rest of the stuff – ASAP! You can read more in our previous Blog Posts about our “stuff”.

Happy Birthday Paul Robeson! (1898 – 1976)

BLACKLIVESMATTER!

The LA Fairplex at the Pomona Fairgrounds (Los Angeles County) and the Long Beach Convention Center will both be used to house some unaccompanied migrant minors from the southern border until the government can figure out what to do about them.
AND THERE ARE MORE COMING EVERYDAY
REMINDER: It was racist Trump and the GOP Traitors who dismantled the immigration system and filled their prison industry friends’ pockets with taxpayer money while committing crimes against children and crimes against humanity.

COVID-19 is the leading cause of death in the United States…..
561000+ REPORTED US CORONAVIRUS DEATHS AS OF TODAY!

FIVE HUNDRED SIXTY-ONE THOUSAND PLUS AMERICANS ARE DEAD.
60200+ REPORTED DEATHS IN THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA
50400+ REPORTED DEATHS IN THE STATE OF NEW YORK
(and these numbers are under reported, actual number are higher)
TRUMP DID THIS. JARED AND IVANKA DID THIS. MIKE PENCE DID THIS.
THE GOP TRAITORS DID THIS. TRUMP’S STOOGES DID THIS.

12:15pm: Friday afternoon.
We ate two slices of pepperjack cheese. We drank a little cran-raspberry-orange juice.
And there was another pursuit today! The CHP and then LAPD were chasing this fool in a blue Honda civic around the alleys of Hollywood and then all the way down Venice blvd to the beach. FoxNews was the only one who stayed with the chase, and then they pulled off before it was over. IT TOTALLY SUCKED! We don’t even know how it ended hours later.

5:50pm: We ordered our dinner delivery. And it came really fast.
We were still feeding the dogs when the food arrived.
The dogs went outside. The dogs got fed. The dogs went outside again.
Then we ate our food.
On The Menu: Chinese Food! Kung pao chicken, orange chicken, broccoli beef, steamed rice, chicken egg rolls and cran-raspberry-orange juice to drink. GOOD SHABBOS!

It’s National Chinese Almond Cookie Day too.
Originally made with ground mung bean and without almonds. The name referred to the ancient shape of the biscuit, and now the almond cookie is round and is made with almonds.


Chinese Almond Cookies
(makes 60 cookies)

Ingredients:
1/2 lb butter
2-1/2 cups sifted flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup sugar
1 egg, slightly beaten
2 tsp almond extract
60 blanched almonds

Directions:
Cut butter into sifted dry ingredients.
Add egg and extract and blend well.
Shape into 1-inch balls and place on ungreased cookie sheet.
Flatten cookies and press one almond into the center of each.
Bake 12 to 15 mins at 350°F – Turn out on wire screen to cool.

OR

Ingredients:
1-1/3 cups almond flour, lightly packed
1 cup unsalted butter, chilled and cut into cubes
Pinch of kosher salt
2 eggs
1 tsp almond extract
1-3/4 cups flour
1 cup + 2 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp baking soda
60 thinly sliced almonds

Directions:
Place the almond flour, salt, and butter in electric mixer with paddle attachment
Beat on medium speed for three minutes.
The mixture will become coarse and chunky looking.
Add one of the eggs, reserving the other for later, and the almond extract.
Mix on low speed until just incorporated.
Sift together the flour, sugar, and baking soda then add to the butter mixture.
Mix at low speed until just combined.
Flatten the dough into a disc and wrap in plastic wrap.
Place in refrigerator. Chill for two hours.
Preheat oven to 325°F.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Place the other egg into a bowl and beat it.
Roll dough into balls about three-quarters-of-an-inch wide.
Flatten them on the cookie sheet:
Place the balls on the sheet an inch apart, press down to make a round coin shape.
Place a slivered almond on each cookie and lightly press it into place.
Paint the surface of the cookie with the beaten egg:
using a pastry brush or fingers
(this will give the cookies that nice glaze after they bake).
Bake at 325°F for 13-15 minutes or until the edges just begin to tan.
Cool on the sheet on a wire rack.


Las Vegas Fremont Street Livestream on Friday Night. Please staythefuckhome.
And the Las Vegas Livestreams showed that all precautions about COVID-19 are already forgotten. Big crowds, no social distancing, intermittent mask use, and JUST STUPID.
Screen Shot 2021-04-09 at 21.01.04
This screenshot from “Not Leaving Las Vegas” is from Friday night at 9:00pm on the Fremont Street Experience downtown. What pandemic? We really want to go, but not until we’re fully vaccinated, until they are all vaccinated, and now, not until the Fourth Wave is over…..
LOW-ROLLERS. Town full of “Stimy Poor” spending their stimulus and unemployment. Bangers from SoCal living it up at cheap hotels and getting really wasted on The Strip.
Mom and Pop brought the kids for a family vacation during a pandemic,
because it was cheap, and Disneyland was still closed.
WE CANNOT BELIEVE THE NUMBER OF CHILDREN AND BABIES IN LAS VEGAS!!! WTF IS WRONG WITH THESE PEOPLE? Greedy, Careless, and Stupid.

8:35pm: We took a little nap after dinner. We woke up and drank an iced espresso.

National Former Prisoner of War Recognition Day – POW/MIA
On this day in 1942, during World War II, US military troops in the Philippines surrendered to the Japanese, leading to the infamous 65 mile forced “Bataan Death March” to a prison camp.
Ronald Reagan named National Former Prisoners of War Recognition Day for April 9, 1988.

BLACKLIVESMATTER! STOP POLICE BRUTALITY AND VIOLENCE!
STOP SYSTEMIC RACISM! STOP KILLING BLACK AND BROWN PEOPLE!

Prince Philip of Great Britain, Duke of Edinburgh, the royal consort of Queen Elizabeth II,
has died at age 99. “this is a sad and historic day”

And rapper, songwriter, and actor DMX (Earl Simmons) has died. He was 50 years old.
He had been in a coma since suffering a heart attack after a drug overdose last week.
May the Four Winds blow them safely home.

“We kinda need to just jump into shit, you know. Let’s go for it: Mass shootings! Don’t worry, I’m not going to talk about the one that happened yesterday because that would be insensitive. I’m going to talk about the one that happened a couple weeks ago, because tragedy plus time equals comedy. I know what you’re probably thinking, Kyle, by the time this airs, what if there’s no mass shooting and the joke won’t be relevant?……
This is America.”

2:05am: Watching “The Godfather, Part II” because it was on, and it’s great.

Saturday afternoon fun and

4:15pm: Somehow we turned on “Game of Thrones” season one this afternoon, and so we’ve watched a couple of episodes. Such a great show! Season one, episode seven is on now.

Recapping One More Saturday Night. Nothing happened.
The dogs got fed. The dogs went outside. We hung out with the dogs.
We watched TV, surfed the internet, and fell asleep for awhile.
Excitement overload.

Sunday, April 11, 2021 – National Pet Day!

1:20am: We woke up just before midnight and made some food.
On The Menu: Freedom toast with bourbon maple syrup
170660895_4651851678174695_3797456921724343961_n

We watched a couple films that we’ve never seen before last night:
Marvel’s “New Mutants” on HBO on the big TV, which was weird but cool,
(it’s a superhero movie with a psychological thriller twist)
and later “Ava” on Netflix on the desktop, which ended up sucking….
alcoholic assassin with Geena Davis as her mother, big bodycount too.
It had John Malkovich in it! And Colin Ferrell as the bad guy.
Common as the love interest? Really? Was he a producer on it?
WHY DID IT HAVE TO BE ALCOHOLISM? FFS. So depressing and sad.
On another note, the action scenes were pretty realistic and violent.
And all set up for a sequel, like “John Wick” on a bender.

4:20am: We just drank a cup of espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.
Okay, so all week we’ve been playing “theme for the day”
in our mug collector group: SPRING PASTEL WEEK
robineggbluemonday, yellowtuesday, mintgreenwednesday,

FUCK. Sunday morning. We woke up. The dogs got fed. The dogs went outside.
We drank a cup of espresso. NO BARKING. NO WHINING. That’s for us, not the dogs.
It can’t be Sunday afternoon fast enough today…. SO FUCKING TIRED OF THIS SH*T.
We are seriously on the edge. It would take just one more thing to push us over.

2:05pm: Internet Trolls are powerless if you delete the post. Then they have nothing to troll.
SAD. Insecure individuals who have nothing better to do.
Yes, GingerBoy I’m talking to you.
[we edited out a personal comment here]
(and he won’t read this Blog Post, because it’s not all about him)
Well, our day got better. Our calm is almost restored. We drank an iced espresso.
Choreboy made a quick appearance. And now we are hungry for something good.
We have been enjoying a very QUIET Sunday afternoon in the Home Office.
Just the sound of birds chirping in the backyard on a beautiful sunny day. SIGH.

Recapping Sunday afternoon and evening. We got dressed and went to check our PO Box, but the Post Office access, the door to the lobby was locked. Before Louis DeJoy and the USPS sabotage in 2020, the lobby was accessible 24/7 except on federal holidays. Now they lock the lobby and it is closed on Sundays and after hours. Just doing more damage and adding to their “lack of customer service” reputation.
WHY HASN’T GOP TRAITOR LOUIS DEJOY BEEN FIRED AND ARRESTED YET?
HE IS GUILTY OF MULTIPLE FEDERAL CRIMES!

El6IK32VcAAcG-r

We drove around a little before returning home, and it was warm and sunny.
And then we drove home, and spent the afternoon doing nothing.
The dog got fed supper. We were inside and outside all day.
We got dressed again to go pickup dinner around 6:00pm.
On The Menu: We ate a frozen sausage and pepperoni “pizza-for-one’, then ordered sushi for pickup. Spicy tuna cut roll and a Calfornia roll with an iced espresso to drink.172970526_4654838637875999_7163782367757579936_n

We fell asleep after dinner with the dog. And we woke up and went back to sleep.
We woke up and took the dog outside again, and now he’s in the bedroom.
And now it’s after midnight on Monday morning and we’re awake again.

Eggs à la Benedick (original recipe)
Cut some muffins in halves crosswise, toast them without allowing to brown, then place a round of cooked ham an eighth of an inch thick and of the same diameter as the muffins on each half. Heat in a moderate oven and put a poached egg on each toast. Cover the whole with Hollandaise sauce (No. 501). – created by Chef Charles Ranhofer at Delmonico’s

Eggs Benedict & Hash Browns


Napa Rose Lobster with Lemon and Vanilla Sauce

Ingredients:
1 lobster (steamed, cracked and meat removed)
1 tablespoon clarified butter
2 minced shallots
1 cup white wine
1 cup chicken stock
1 vanilla bean or 
1/8 teaspoon good vanilla extract
1 small pinch saffron
3 tablespoons diced tomatoes
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon fresh chopped thyme
6 tablespoons unsalted butter

Directions:
In a sauce pan, sauté shallots in 1 tablespoon of clarified butter over medium high heat.
Add the white wine and reduce by 70 percent.
Add the chicken stock, half of one vanilla bean, saffron and reduce by 50 percent.
Add tomatoes, lobster, chopped thyme and lemon juice.
Remove sauce pan from heat and slowly whisk in unsalted butter. Mixture should resemble a creamy lobster and saffron stew. Taste sauce and adjust by adding salt or a few drops of lemon juice if necessary.


Pot O’Chili
50750975_2661995193827030_8893054679169105920_n
Ingredients:
1/2lb pork sausage, 1/2lb ground beef, 1/2 chopped onion, can of stewed tomatoes, half of a small can of tomato sauce, half of a small tomato – chopped, chili powder, red pepper, cumin, garlic, black pepper, and salt.
Directions:
brown the meat and onions, add to pot with tomatoes and sauce, add spices to taste, simmer for awhile and let sit for a bit before serving. Add beans, peppers, other spices, whatever you like. Serve with toppings: cheese, chopped onion, crushed nacho cheese tortilla chips, sour cream and/or creme fraisch, etc.


Fried Rice with Minced Beef – Serves 3
Ingredients:
1/2 pound minced beef
iceberg lettuce, shredded
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 spring onions, finely chopped
2 bowls white rice, preferably leftover and reheated
2 tsp light soy sauce
salt, to taste
sugar, to taste

Marinade:
1 Tbsp light soy sauce
1 tsp cornflour
1/4 tsp chicken powder
2/3 tsp sugar
1 tsp water
1/2 tsp vegetable oil
1/2 tsp shaoxing wine
a pinch of pepper

Method:
Marinate minced beef with marinade for 15 minutes.
Heat oil over medium. Cook beef until 80% done. Set aside.
Add some oil again. Stir in beaten egg. Stir constantly until 60% done. Add rice, preferably reheated beforehand as it’d shorter the cooking time. Quickly stir fry evenly. Sprinkle salt and sugar to taste. When the rice is really hot thoroughly, add light soy sauce.
Toss in beef. Continue to cook and combine well. Add shredded lettuce and spring onion until softens. If you’d like to taste the crunchy veggie, then don’t fry too long. Serve hot.

Combination Fried Rice:

First, when it comes to fry rice, we have to use leftover rice because you don’t want any soggy rice. Mixing with all the other vegetables and meat, the rice would be just right, not so dry or soggy.
Second, use as many favorite ingredients as you like. There’s no only one rule to combine ingredients for fried rice. So, be creative and enjoy whatever you like.
Third, the right order is to pan fry eggs, then followed by rice. Many people make the mistake to put in rice first, then pour in whisked eggs. This would make the rice soggy and mushy by absorbing the egg mixture.
Last but not least, don’t stir fry all ingredients with rice in the first place.You have to sauté the meat and vegetables separately. Then combine with the fried rice when it’s nearly done. Simple and easy

Ingredients:
3 bowls (leftover steamed) white rice
1 onion (sliced)
1 sausage (cubed)
1 slice of ham (cubed)
6 mushrooms (sliced)
1/2 cup green peas
3 eggs, whisked

Seasoning:
1 tablespoon (light/reduced sodium) soy sauce
pinch of black pepper (season to taste)
pinch or punch of salt (season to taste)
granulated sugar (season to taste)

Directions:
Blanche the green peas in boiling water for 2 to 3 minutes. Drain and set aside.
Cut the onion, sausage and ham into small cubes. Slice the mushrooms.
Heat 2 tablespoons of cooking oil and sauté onion over medium heat. 
Add mushrooms, cook until tender.
Add green peas and sauté for 2 more minutes. Set the vegetables aside.
Heat pan over medium heat, sauté sausage and ham until light brown. Dish up.
Clean the pan with a kitchen (or paper) towel.
Add 2 tablespoons of oil, pour in whisked eggs. When the egg mixture is half-way cooked through, add in leftover rice. Stir well for about 10 minutes on high heat.
When rice is evenly heated and mixed with the eggs, add the onion, green peas and mix well. Add the sausage and ham. Stir all ingredients together.
Add salt, sugar and black pepper.
Drizzle the soy sauce over the rice and toss. Season to taste.

Tips:
Use whatever greens you like: capsicum, celery.
Add other meats: chicken, shrimp or pork.
Preheat the leftover rice in the microwave before adding, it will shorten the cooking time.
Enjoy the fried rice!

Ashley’s Easy Awesome Everyday Fried Chicken

– Figure about one boneless chicken breast per person
– Filet each breast lengthways three time (four for thicker breasts)
– In one large bowl combine milk and about 2 or 3 eggs and wisk until mixed
– For breading use a brownie pan. In the pan combine about 3/4 cup of bisquik per breast along with your choice of seasonings. Use salt, pepper, garlic, ground sage, rosemary and some celery seeds. Add red pepper, cayenne, chili powder, or other spices to taste.
– Dip each filet into the milk and egg mix, then generously coat filet with breading mix and then fry untill golden brown.

For best results fry the chicken in a wok.
This chicken makes great strips that retain their juices.
You can also use the chicken for sandwiches, sliced in a salad, and may other things.

Easy Bacon Cheeseball
A cheeseball is a spread made with softened cream cheese and other ingredients

Sugar-Cinnamon Ingredients:
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon

Batter Ingredients:
4 large eggs
1 1/3 cup whole milk
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon granulated sugar

Tonga Toast Ingredients:
1 quart canola oil, for frying
1 loaf sourdough bread (uncut, 12 inches long)
2 large bananas, peeled

Instructions:
For cinnamon-sugar:
1. Mix sugar and cinnamon in medium bowl (large enough to roll toast) with a fork until thoroughly blended. Set aside.

For batter:
1. Whip eggs in medium bowl (large enough to dip toast) until well beaten. Add milk, cinnamon, and sugar. Mix well and set aside.

For Tonga toast:
1. Preheat oil to 350 degrees F in a large pot or a deep fryer. (If using a large pot, use a candy thermometer to make certain the oil does not get any hotter or it will burn.)
2. Slice the bread into four three-inch-thick slices.

6. Cook 4-5 minutes until golden brown. If needed, turn toast over after 2 minutes and cook for another 2 minutes on other side. Remove and drain excess oil.
7. Roll toast in cinnamon-sugar. Repeat for each piece of toast.

4 sq. unsweetened baking chocolate
2/3 c. butter (NOT margarine!)
4 eggs
2 cups white sugar
1 1/2 c. unbleached flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt

Directions:
Use a 13″x9″x2″ pan; make sure to grease the pan well!
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
Melt butter and chocolate over double-boiler, or on very low flame
(if you use the low flame be sure to check
to make sure the chocolate does not burn as it is melting)
While the butter & chocolate are melting, sift the flour, baking powder, and salt together on a piece of waxed paper (yes, it is still available in most supermarkets).
Once the butter and chocolate are totally melted, remove from heat.
Slowly beat in the 2 cups of sugar.
Once all the sugar has been incorporated, add 2 of the eggs.
Mix thoroughly, then add half of the dry ingredients. Mix thoroughly again.
Add the other two eggs, then the remainder of the dry ingredients.

Pour the batter into the greased baking pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes,
or until an knife inserted in the center comes out clean.

Cool brownies until you can’t wait any longer. Then eat.
I like them very much when they are frozen
and then I drink them with cold milk or hot tea with milk in it….

Fiesta Ice Pops
icepoprecipecard5


Candied Orange Peel
Strips of orange peel cooked in sugar syrup until they are soft and chewy. 
They can be sugar coated or dipped in chocolate for extra fun.

Ingredients:
3 Oranges – navel or Valencia
2-1/4 Cups Sugar (granulated)
1-1/8 Water
Sugar for coating and/or Chocolate for dipping (optional)

Directions:
Prep and Blanche the Peel:
Rinse  and clean three navel or Valencia oranges.
Cut the top and bottom off each orange. Score the skin into quarters.
Remove the skin (both peel and pith). Cut into strips about ¼” wide.
(eat or save the peeled oranges for other use)
In a medium saucepan, place the strips of peel and cover with cold water.
Blanch the peels: Bring the water to a boil. When the water boils, drain the water from the orange peel strips. Rinse in fresh cold water. Repeat at least two more times.
Blanching removes any bitter flavor in the orange peel. (TIP: Blanch the peels 4-5 times).
Drain the water and place the peels in a bowl. 

Sugar Syrup:
Use the same saucepan, and whisk together 2-¼ cups sugar and 1-⅛ cups water.
Bring the mixture to a simmer over a low heat.
Cook 8-9 minutes at a constant simmer, adjust the heat, and make sure it doesn’t boil.
Add the orange peel. Cook about 45 minutes to 1 hour on medium-low heat, until the white pith is translucent (not white), adjust heat as needed – maintain the simmer, keep from boiling.
Swirl the pan occasionally to make sure that all of the peels get covered with syrup.
DO NOT STIR, this will cause crystallation.
Drain the cooked syrup from the orange peels – (set aside and save for another recipe).
Toss the peels in a bowl of sugar to coat, or dip in melted chocolate and let set. (optional),
Transfer to a drying rack. When they are dry, store them in an airtight container.


Salted Caramel Pretzel Bark

Ingredients:
2 sticks of butter
1 cup of light brown sugar
1 reg. bag of pretzels (you’ll use about 3/4 of the bag)
12 ounce bag of chocolate chips
Sea salt – ( I use our coarse sea salt with our grinder)

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 400.
Line a large bar pan with parchment paper, cover with pretzels
In a medium saucepan melt the butter over medium-low heat. When it begins to bubble add the brown sugar. Stirring occasionally let the butter/sugar mixture meld together and brown. This should take about 3 minutes. Do NOT let it boil, you will have sticky goo that is no good. When you have a nice, brown caramel pour it over the pretzels, slowly and evenly. You can then use a spatula to spread it out, you have to work quickly and gently. It hardens fast so even pouring is the best method.
Bake the sheet for 5 minutes.
Remove the sheet from the oven and sprinkle the whole bag of chocolate chips evenly over the mixture.
Place back in the oven for about 45 seconds. If you let it sit there too long the chocolate will burn.
Remove from the oven and use a silicone spatula to evenly spread the chocolate over the top.
Sprinkle with sea salt and refrigerate for a minimum of 1 hour.

March 26 is National Nougat Day!
Celebrate the soft and chewy or hard and crunchy candy! 
Nougat is made by whipping egg whites with honey or sugar, roasted nuts, and sometimes candied fruit. Traditional nougat is made with almonds and honey and has been a around since ancient Rome. Enjoy it on its own as candy, combine it with chocolate and/or other flavorings.

There are three basic kinds of nougats:
White nougat is made with beaten egg whites and honey
Brown nougat is made without egg whites, has a firmer and often crunchy texture
Viennese or German nougat is made with chocolate and nut praline

In Italy, they call it torrone.
In Spain, nougat is called turrón.
The United States version is made with corn syrup and called divinity.
In the United States, modern candy makers use a different recipe.
They use a mixture of sucrose and corn syrup mixed with egg whites, gelatin, or hydrolyzed soy protein. It is a common and widely used ingredient because it is inexpensive and used as a filler instead of more expensive ingredients.

Dave’s Peach Pie Moonshine

176260702_10222486608866509_7311504259683280482_n


Jelly Bean Shot

Ingredients:
1/2 oz Blackberry Brandy (or Grenadine)
1/2 oz Anisette (or Sambuca, anise-flavored liqueur)
1/2 oz Southern Comfort

Directions:
Pour Brandy (or Grenadine) into a tall shot glass
Float the Anisette (or Sambuca) on top of the Brandy
Float the Southern Comfort on top of the Anisette
Serve and enjoy

How to “Float” (Bartending 101):
Hold a bar spoon upside down over the drink and rest the spoon’s tip on the inner edge of the glass, just above the top of the liquid. Slowly pour over the back of the bar spoon and onto the top of the previous ingredient. Move the spoon up as the liquor level rises.

The key is in the three layers of liqueurs: poured on top of each other in order with the heaviest on the bottom and the lightest on top. “Float” the liqueurs by pouring them over the back of a bar spoon. This creates a pretty triple-layered shot. The ingredients have specific densities that make the separation easy. The greater the density difference, the more defined their separation. Density is determined by the sugar and alcohol content. Grenadine is one of the heaviest mixers used for cocktails and will almost always sink to the bottom of the glass, even if it is the last ingredient added.
NOTE: The Anisette will give the drink a “black licorice” jelly bean taste.

Jägermeister is a type of liqueur called Kräuterlikör (herbal liqueur).
You can substitute it for the Anisette/Sambuca or just do a shot or two of Jäger!
“Jägermeister is a digestif made with 56 herbs and spices. Developed in 1934 by Wilhelm and Curt Mast, it has an alcohol by volume of 35%. The recipe has not changed since its creation and continues to be served in its signature green glass bottle.” – from wikipedia

FLASHBACKFRIDAY!  August 2017

Wanted to share my good fortune: saw a Craigslist ad for Free Cookbooks and responded to it. A professional chef and food stylist was downsizing and giving away some of her cookbooks… well we went and picked up 6 boxes of truly amazing books (well, we had to box them up first). the entire Time-Life series with all the supplemental recipe books, lots of big hardbound famous chef books, culinary arts, Williams-Sonoma, anthology collections bound into yearly editions, weird foreign cookbooks because she had to learn as she was styling, and much more! And that’s not all because when we got there, there was also a bunch of stuff on the front porch that she didn’t sell at the garage sale and she told us to help ourself. All kinds of kitchenware, glassware, cookware, utensils and a whole box of vintage and antique kitchen items too! Here’s one small box of books:
20638581_1916669701692920_6216464836347407332_n

This Sunbeam T-9 that we cleaned up a little was one of the fantastic pieces:
20728017_1916721928354364_5077821092816821766_n

Yes, and it gets even better:
20622044_1916848801675010_660065434603765910_n

Cool? You can say that again!
20622128_1916856395007584_8853800012825920130_n

There was also a bunch of “new in the box” glassware, vintage hats, clothes, toys & games, tools, a MCM rolling cart (that is now a side table), a Cosco stool in good condition, vintage golf clubs with bag, and more!
