“IS THERE ANYBODY OUT THERE?”
(seriously, sometimes we really wonder….)
Our Stats tell us that we are International and have followers around the world.

Wow, More than One Thousand Blog Posts published!
Eight years! Over One Hundred Thousand (unsolicited) Hits on our Blog!
We didn’t even realize that we had passed One Thousand Blog Posts….
(and along the way we’ve deleted and consolidated some of our previous posts)

CELEBRATE ONE THOUSAND PUBLISHED BLOG POSTS WITH US!
1000 posts

We started this Blog in 2013 as a Travel Blog. It naturally evolved into a Lifestyle Blog (with a lot of recipes and other useful information), and then more recently a  Political Platform (Anti-Trump and Anti-GOP Traitor) and  CoronaVirus Journal.

NOTE: We thought the ATTEMPTED FASCIST TAKEOVER OF OUR GOVERNMENT culminating in the JANUARY 6, 2021 ATTACK ON THE US CAPITOL in Washington DC and the ongoing CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC that has KILLED OVER 600000+ US CITIZENS was more important than non-existent travel or social events.
PLEASE READ OUR PREVIOUS CORONAVIRUS JOURNAL (CV!) BLOG POSTS!

We began reporting on COVID-19 in January of 2020!
We warned our loyal readers about the CoronaVirus in early February 2020!
And we issued a TRAVEL ALERT and WARNING at the end of February 2020:
(Not on this day, and now its been 16 months since we posted this warning)Screen Shot 2021-02-28 at 08.07.50
And DONALD TRUMP, MITCH MCCONNELL, AND THE GOP TRAITORS REMAIN
A CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER TO THE WORLD in the Summer of 2021!

CV! Part 176 – PTSD WEEKEND! (Friday-Saturday-Sunday)

E4m95x6XMAIkY_0
John McAfee RIP…. Jeffrey Epstein did not kill himself.
McAfee “committed suicide” in a Spanish prison? REALLY?
Is it a conspiracy theory if the victim predicts his own death?
NOTE: It already appears that the mainstream media is just going to bury the story.
DO YOU TRUST THE US GOVERNMENT TO TELL YOU THE TRUTH?

Was he an “Enemy of the State” or did he just know too much about certain people?
And what about Jeffrey Epstein? And the Deutsche Bank Banker? Suicides? Really?


Friday, June 25, 2021 – It’s the Last Friday of the Month!

It’s Anthony Bourdain Day! Today would have been his 65th birthday. The celebrity chef, author, world traveler, and TV personality killed himself on June 8, 2018.

On this day in 1876, Lieutenant Colonel George Armstrong Custer FAILED.
The 7th United States Cavalry was defeated by Sioux and Cheyenne Warriors at the Battle of the Little Bighorn in the Montana Territory (aka “Custer’s Last Stand”).
There were 268 dead and 55 severely wounded U.S. soldiers (and others) when the battle was over.

4:55am: It’s Friday morning! Have a nice day.
smiley 11
It’s the weekend.
Not that anything is any different from the rest of the week.
It’s going to be HOT here, maybe 100 degrees on Sunday.

7:35am: And we took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs. We took the dogs outside.

Remember that cow that went missing after they escaped from the slaughterhouse?
They found it yesterday morning in Whittier Narrows park.
OKAY, WTF? Diane Warren (Hollywood Elite) is going to pay to send it to a sanctuary.
And a bunch of a**holes are now protesting outside the meatpacking plant,
because they want the other 38 cows to be “pardoned” instead of becoming steaks.
Seriously, fuciking cows and people protesting meat are big news in Los Angeles……..
And MORE Britney Spears court news…

RECORD HEAT! EXTEME DROUGHT! “We’re having a heat wave.”

Be glad you’re not in southern Oregon or the Pacific Northwest this week!
But seriously, it’s going to be dangerously HOY in a lot of places. so STAY COOL!
Take care of your family, friends, and pets. Young and elderly people are most at risk.

Tokyo 2020 2021 update.
ETuxtaXXYAAVrNG1
The XXXII Olympiad (Summer Olympic Games)

The Olympics were postponed for the first time in history in 2020.
There are 33 sports and 339 events scheduled at 42 venues.

Foreign visitors (from 159 countries) are banned and are not allowed to attend.

A poll in the Asahi Shimbun newspaper showed
80% of the population want the Olympics cancelled or postponed.
And the newspaper also wants the IOC and the organizers to cancel the games.
Japanese Emperor Naruhito also thinks it’s a bad idea.

We played with the dog. We loved the dog. We love the little boy.
Now he’s napping next to us in the Home Office.

204571988_4887135771312950_4985729327110375271_n

NOTE: We got dressed and drove to the restaurant.
We talked to the staff (our friends) at the restaurant and drove home.
We ate dinner while watching LIVE MUSIC on the desktop.

There was a pursuit that ended when the guy hit the barrier between the carpool lane and the freeway head-on at high speed. He destroyed the truck in a spectacular wreck, spun out, rolled it, and landed in the carpool lanes. Then he crawled out of the wreckage (unhurt) and surrendered to the Highway Patrol. Yeah Saturday Night!

We took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs. We took the dogs outside.
We had the dogs in the Home Office. We took the dogs outside.
Now they’re in the bedroom. And Choreboy is here to do some stuff.

11:45am: Well Choreboy did.a little vacuuming…. and not much more.
We drank an iced espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.
We got the mail. We took the dogs outside. It’s a beautiful day.
And now we’re back in the Home Office.

1:35pm: We took a short (unintended) nap with the dogs.

3:20pm: So, we are still chilling’ in the Home Office with the dogs.
And they are just sleeping.
We ate some peanut M&Ms, but now it’s time for lunch.

4:10pm:
On The Mneu: Leftover pizza and an iced espresso for lunch
187558563_4778113578881837_4965582852574762591_n

6:40pm:
We took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs. We took the dogs outside.

Recapping Tuesday night: nothing happened. We watched TV and surfed the interweb.

We binge-watched “Sons of Sam” on Netflix, about “the .44 Caliber Killer” David Berkowitz
and the failure of the NYPD to properly investigate the murders after he was caught.
It was interesting, but you have to be a True Crime fan to really enjoy it, we think.

And we’re not going to Burning Man (or That Other Thing in the Desert) this year.
FREE BURN? No, a lot of people on The Playa…. without structure. TOO MUCH CHAOS.
And probably too many people – now that the pandemic is no longer an issue.
FUCK YOUR PRETEND BURN! It will be better next year. Or two years ago….

Forty cows escaped yesterday from a slaughterhouse/meat packing plant

We woke up and made lunch, because we still hadn’t eaten anything.

It’s a beautiful day again, but it’s also noisy trash pickup day in the neighborhood.

WE DON’T CARE ABOUT BRITNEY SPEARS! (because itt’s “BIG NEWS” today)
WE DO NOT GIVE A DAMN ABOUT HER CONSERVATORSHIP!
Entertainment Industry and State of California F*ckery with Lawyers!
She wanted to act “Crazy”, and they stole her money, and made her a trained chimp.

Goodnight Conan O’Brien!

THE BIG DAY IS (finally) HERE!
We watched the Grand Opening of Resorts World in Las Vegas LIVE on Youtube.
Screen Shot 2021-06-24 at 20.11.23
The Vloggers were all there, with livestreams of the opening night festivities.
We briefly thought about making a reservation and driving to Nevada…..
Screen Shot 2021-06-24 at 22.45.49

And there were NO MASKS and NO SOCIAL DISTANCING!
The COVID-19 is apparently over if thousands of people can party without worry….

Seriously, does anyone else think we are STUPID?
We mean humans as a species are F*CKING STUPID..
Are we going to just forget the last SIXTEEN MONTHS OF FORCED SELF-ISOLATION?
Or Trump and the GOP Traitors’ four years of CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY?

Screen Shot 2021-05-09 at 19.14.04

9:30am: We woke up at 5:30am. We were up and then went back to bed.
Did not sleep well. Woke up several more times before getting out of bed.
The dogs went outside. The dogs got fed.
And FUCK, the afternoon can’t get here fast enough.

10:45am: Our shoulder is f*cked up and we’re in pain. Pain hurts.
Today is just starting off real sh*tty.

3:00pm: Our day is a little better. We drank an iced espresso.
Drink Coffee. Drink Water. Feel Better.
Our shoulder was really bad, so we iced it for a little bit, and now it’s a little better.
It’s a beautiful day and really hot outside. The dogs are napping in the bedroom.
We are sitting here in silence on Friday afternoon, and it’s just real quiet right now.
The exterminator came to spray around the house earlier,
and there was a lot of gardener noise in the neighborhood this morning,
We stayed in the Home Office most of the morning, moaning about our shoulder.

4:10pm: We took the dogs outside. It’s HOT. And it’s a dry heat.
199805481_4861984773828050_1843059725903946220_n

Now we are chilling’ in the Home Office with the dogs, and it’s nice and cool.
And we haven’t eaten any real food today…. so we’re kinda hungry.
FUCK. The gardeners across the street are here.
And they have really loud lawnmowers and leaf blowers….and they suck.
SO, we’re going to eat early supper now. Yeah, that’s the ticket.

11:50pm: Recapping Friday. We fell asleep instead of supper.
We woke up and it was time to feed the dogs. We took them outside too.
We made breakfast for dinner.
On The Menu: 2 eggs over medium, bacon, twice cooked potato,
toasted bagel with cream cheese, plum, nectarine, banana,
cran-raspberry-orange juice and an iced espresso to drink
201050912_4862979093728618_6957876727711496743_n

We took the dogs outside again. Now they’re sleeping in the Home Office,
Our shoulder still hurts. And it hurts a lot when we lay down.

We stopped, took the little dog outside again, put the dogs in the bedroom,
and made an icepack for our shoulder. So Ice on, Ice off now.

Remembering our old friend, poet Pagan Neil, today on his birthday.
He passed over on March 3, 2016. May his memory be a blessing!

Should we celebrate?
A birthday for a dead man?
What would Pagan do?
Write a poem for him!
Toast his blessed memory!
Hold him in your heart!
NOTE: We included a pic of Pagan and credited the owner.
He previously gave us permission to use his pics with credit given.
He reported us to Facebook and we got our first “copyright strike”.
He was on our Friend list and there wasn’t any bad blood between us….
But really? He didn’t message us. SO WE BLOCKED HIM!
YEAH, THAT’S RIGHT! AND FUCK HIM TOO!
GOODBYE! WE DON’T DO FACEBOOK DRAMA!
AND FUCK HIM AGAIN FOR BEING A NARC!
This was a picture of a DEAD MAN.
Pagan Neil RIP – May his memory be a blessing.
One Old A**hole Blocked. BUH-BYE. Oh, and “karma’s a bitch” too.

Saturday, June 19, 2021 – JUNETEENTH!

HAPPY JUNETEENTH!

64672594_2910174945675719_804444402423431168_o

I’m not shopping the Juneteenth “White Sale”, sorry.

Juneteenth is a celebration commemorating the end of slavery in the United States.
Now it is an official Federal Holiday, signed into law by President Joe Biden just this week.
On June 19, 1865 (156 years ago), over two years after President Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation, Union soldiers arrived in Galveston, Texas and declared that slavery was over.
The Emancipation Proclamation of 1863, freed the slaves in Confederate states,
but had no effect on the states under Confederate control where slavery still existed.

BLACKLIVESMATTER!

10:00am: We didn’t sleep well last night.
Mostly because for our shoulder. We finally took a prescription pill.
(we never take them because they make us feel groggy all the next day)
We woke up and took the dogs outside. Then we fell asleep again.
We woke up and took the dogs outside and then we fed the dogs.
We made an iced espresso and yes, we feel groggy/sleepy tired….
And our shoulder is still sore this morning, but improving.

2:30pm: We went back to sleep, and woke up at12:30pm. We took the dogs outside.
Then we went back to bed. We slept for another two hours and just woke up.
We took the dogs outside and made an iced espresso. And now it’s time for lunch.

On The Menu: peanut butter and raspberry jam sandwich on toasted Hawaiian bread.

201085033_10159334391349441_9086538769194773040_n

9:50pm: Recapping our exciting Saturday…
We ate the sandwich. We took a nap. We woke up and took the dogs outside.
We drank an iced espresso. We fed the dogs. We took the dogs outside.
We ran some errands…. they’re still locking the Post Office Lobby Area with the PO Boxes.
NOTE: the Lobby area used to be open 24 hours before Louis DeJoy f*cked up the USPS

We went home and took the dogs outside and now we’re chillin’ in the Home Office.
One More Saturday Night! And we need to eat something now.

On The Menu:
Mac’n’Cheese with bacon, and a dill pickle, and an iced espresso to drink.
201579003_4865887533437774_1111756846326660415_n

And we took the dogs outside again and gave them love.
Now they’re sleeping in the bedroom.


Sunday, June 20, 2021 – Father’s Day!

Sunday 2:15am: Well,
it’s a redneck tough guy classic Saturday Night double feature marathon tonight.
“Every Which Way But Loose” with Clint Eastwood and
“White Line Fever” with Jan Michael Vincent

7:45am: We slept a little. We woke up and took the dogs outside.
We fed the dogs. We took the dogs outside. We got the newspapers.

SQUIRREL!
12072567_1360437433982819_369129558114017440_n

10:10am: We went back to bed. We woke up pretty quick.
We took the dogs outside. We made an iced espresso.
Choreboy did the dishes and a load of laundry, More stuff to come today.
It’s Father’s Day. We are not attending a party in Ventura County this morning….
Too far to travel. We are bummed we can’t attend the celebration for our Stepfather.
And we miss our Dad. He passed in 2018. May his memory be a blessing.
So, today is a sh*tty day on social media. We are “standing by” today.

3:35pm: Well we took the dogs outside again. Then we had a little siesta.
We woke up and made another iced espresso. Now we have to eat something.

4:45pm: WE JUST SAVED A LOST DOG!
Hey, look what’s in our driveway! It’s a dog, not one of ours…..
Screen Shot 2021-06-20 at 16.39.15
We went to the front door and it was there waiting for us.
And there was no owner in sight. It’s only 82 degrees out, so it’s HOT.
He was very friendly, and clean, so we brought him inside out of the heat.
He had a harness and collar, but NO TAGS! We got him some water.
We took him into the kitchen and outside.
He was very happy and peed on everything.
We got a leash and took him out front. Still no owner in sight….
so we took him into the Home Office and then outside again.
He was very happy and peed on everything.
We checked his collar and his name and number were embroidered on it.
We called the number, and asked “Did you lose something?”
It was our neighbor on the corner, it was his daughter’s dog,
and then he and his daughter came and got their dog from us.
OUR GOOD DEED FOR THE DAY WAS DONE!
And No Masks were involved….. Nice dog too. And he liked me, it was obvious.
Then we got our dogs and let them sniff up the house, and Home Office.
We took them outside, into the kitchen, and outside again.
So, they sniffed on the other dog inside and out, and they peed and pooped.
Now they’re in the bedroom, and we are going to be Choreboy for a bit.

7:15pm: Choreboy  finished the laundry and cleaned and watered the little yard..
We took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs. We took the dogs outside again.
We drank an iced espresso and a glass of juicy juice.

Happy birthday Barry Manilow!
National Apple Strudel Day

2:05am: The fridge was empty, so we finally went to the market at 10:30pm.
We unloaded and put away the groceries. We made dinner and ate it at 1:00pm.

On The Menu: T-Bone steak with sauteed onions and green beans, strawberries, and a plum.
Cran-raspberry-orange juice to drink. And leftover bacon we put in a baggie for later.
We also made a baked potato, but it took too long, and we’re full. Dinner was good.
2 chocolate cake donuts with bacon for dessert.
199889781_4857370717622789_7187104213462607477_n

8:55am: We woke up early after not being able to sleep again…. and now we’re awake.
The dogs went outside. The dogs got fed. The dogs went outside.
We made an iced espresso for breakfast. And here we are again.
WE ARE STILL EXPERIENCING A MAJOR TECHNICAL PROBLEM WITH WORDPRESS!

EVERYTHING IS BLACK BELOW THIS LINE! (makes it kinda hard to write or edit)
EXAMPLE A:

9:30am: Watching Peter Greenberg’s Thursday Morning Global Travel Update.
DO NOT TRAVEL! STAYTHEFUCKHOME! DO NOT TRAVEL! SAVE YOUR MONEY!
STAY HOME! STAY HEALTHY! Not everyone is vaccinated…. you can still get sick.
Continue to WEARAFUCKING(DOUBLE)MASK! Protect yourself and others please.

Another great reason to use a licensed Travel Advisor (a professional Travel Agent)!
REPORT TRAVEL PROBLEMS! Contact the US Department of Transportation,
the Federal Trade Commission, and the Better Business Bureau to report all travel issues!

We drank the iced espresso. We ate the leftover bacon from dinner last night.
The housekeeper is here to clean today. We actually have sh*t to do today too.
We turned on the TV, and “John Mayer with special guest Buddy Guy” came on. Cool.
10:00am: We ate two donuts. No shame. We took the dogs outside. Going to be HOT.
And we are just chillin’ with the dogs in the Home Office now. 84 degrees and rising.
Hot and Humid, with some precipitation (almost rain) already today.

I will gladly pay you Tuesday….

6:45pm: Recapping Thursday afternoon and evening now.
We took a shower and got dressed. We drove to the dentist.
We had teeth cleaning appointment, and we were done before 2:00pm.
We drove home and did some stuff in the Home Office.
We took the dogs outside, and then we all fell asleep. It was good nap.
We woke up, took the dogs outside, fed the dogs, and took the dogs outside.

7:25pm: We took the dog outside again. We made an iced espresso.
Not necessarily in that order. And now we have the little girl and she’s chillin’.
We had a really good nap, and we feel fresh as the mornin’ and it’s 7:40pm.

NOTE: We are still typing BLACK ON BLACK so it’s hard to see
if we are making errors and it limits our creativity a little…. very frustrating.

9:10pm: We took the dogs outside. We had them in the Home Office.
We took the dogs outside and then put them in the bedroom.
We got a chopped salad but it was mushy…. so we made a sandwich.

On The Menu: Chopped chicken salad (with bacon and avocado) sandwich
on toasted Hawaiian bread, dill pickle, red grapes, strawberries, and raspberries

Monday, June 14, 2021 – FLAG DAY in the USA!
On this day in 1777, the American Flag was adopted by the Continental Congress.
Celebrate the symbolism and history of the Stars and Stripes today!

US_Flag_Backlit

USA! USA! USA!

Flag Day commemorates the adoption of the flag of the United States on June 14, 1777 by resolution of the Second Continental Congress. In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson marked the anniversary of that decree by officially establishing June 14 as Flag Day.

“Resolved, That the flag of the thirteen United States be thirteen stripes, alternate red and white; that the union be thirteen stars, white in a blue field, representing a new constellation.” – The Flag Resolution June 14, 1777

Congress also adopted “the American continental army” on June 14, 1775,
so today is also the birthday of the United States Army.

The flag was designed by Francis Hopkinson,
a Continental Congressman from New Jersey.

 

The Red, White and Blue!
White for purity and innocence. Red for valor and hardiness.
Blue for vigilance, perseverance, and justice.

On this day in 1937, Pennsylvania was first to celebrate Flag Day as a state holiday.
The 50-star American Flag was flown for the first time on the Fourth of July in 1960,
after Hawaii became the 50th State on August 21, 1959.

You’re a grand old flag/You’re a high-flying flag/And forever in peace may you wave!
You’re the emblem of/The land I love/The home of the free and the brave!
– George M. Cohan

Did you know that the American Flag can be flown at night?
The Flag can be flown anywhere that it is flown during the day if it is properly illuminated.

9:35am: Okay, we woke up awhile ago. We took the little boy outside. We played with the little boy. We took the little boy outside again. We fed the little dog. We took the little dog outside.
We took the dog outside again. It’s a little boy morning and now it’s not anymore.
We made an iced espresso. And we’re done now and he’s laying down over there. 

11:11am: We got the newspapers and the mail. It was very bright outside.
And now it’s getting HOT. “We’re having’ a heatwave.” all week in the Southwest USA.
Not a good week to go to Las Vegas…. they’re expecting 115 degrees during the day..
That’s TOO HOT FOR HUMANS!

3:40pm: We took the dogs outside again. We played with the little dog.
Now they are napping in the bedroom. It is TOO HOT out in the sunshine. 
We ate a toasted bagel with peanut butter and raspberry jam.
We drank and iced espresso.

1:23am: Four five. Drum Solo! And we are awake again.
We fell asleep after dinner on Monday night. We woke up and it was Tuesday.


COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS LIFTED TODAY IN THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA.
Governor Gavin Newsom terminated the executive orders today!
The Stay Home Order and the Blueprint for a Safer Economy are no more.
COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS LIFTED TODAY IN THE STATE OF NEW YORK.
Governor Andrew Cuomo did the same in New York.

Are you FULLY VACCINATED*?
GET VACCINATED if you haven’t yet!
*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.

COVID-19 is still the leading cause of death in the United States.
600000+ Reported Deaths in the United States from COVID-19
as of today.
63000+ Reported Deaths in California from COVID-19 as of today
52900+ Reported Deaths in New York from COVID-19 as of today
(these are the reported numbers, the true numbers are much higher)

There is a NEW CORONAVIRUS VARIANT!
The Delta Variant, previously known as the “Indian variant”
First detected in India last October and now spreading in more than 40 countries!

Vietnam has detected a NEW CORONAVIRUS VARIANT!
A mutation of the Indian and U.K. COVID-19 variants, it spreads by air
and is much more transmissible than the previously known types.

  • Get your COVID-19 vaccine today! (if you haven’t yet)
  • WearAF*ckingMask!
  • Stay 6 feet apart – PRACTICE SOCIAL DISTANCING!
  • Avoid crowds! StayTheF*ckHome!
  • Avoid (poorly ventilated) indoor spaces.
  • Wash your hands
  • Avoid touching your face, eyes, nose, and mouth

Cases of reinfection with COVID-19 have been reported, but are rare​.​
And COVID-19 can spread from people to animals in some situations.
Pet cats and dogs can become infected after close contact with infected people.

Do not go to movie theaters, musical performances, shopping malls,
dance parties, sporting events, Las Vegas, or any kind of public gathering!
Attending events and gatherings increases your risk of getting and spreading COVID-19.
Stay home to protect yourself and others from COVID-19.

Dodgers Stadium will be at capacity tonight! The first time since October 2019.
Masks are not required for Fully Vaccinated fans…… that’s ~55000 people.

12:30pm: Chillin’ in the Home Office. It’s really HOT outside.
Thinking about lunch, since we didn’t eat breakfast yet.

2:55pm: We just ate cold leftover Chinese food. Orange peel beef for lunch.
We took the dogs outside. It’s HOT HOT HOT. We drank another iced espresso.

USA-Pledge-of-Allegiance

Indoctrination and institutional learning begins with the Pledge of Allegiance.
Age 5, first day of school (nursery school doesn’t count), first day of kindergarten…
We met the teacher. They showed us the classroom,
they showed us the coat closet, they showed us the boys & girls restrooms, 
and then they taught us the Pledge of Allegiance.
And every morning of every school day, we stood up, faced the flag,
placed our hands over our hearts and repeated the Pledge of Allegiance.

And there was no G-D:

PLEASE STAND BY! OUR BLOG HOST WORDPRESS IS HAVING SERIOUS PROBLEMS!

PLEASE STAND BY! We are only experiencing mild frustration.
WORDPRESS IS HAVING SERIOUS TECHNICAL PROBLEMS!
(see the screenshot below….. we added the FUCKS afterwards).

UPDATE Wednesday, June 16, 2021, at 11:45am:
Okay, we thought we fixed the problem.
We did change the THEME. We’re going to leave it “as is” for now.
We disabled the Adblocker – which we thought was the problem.
So everything should work fine with the text editor now….
BUT IT’S NOT FIXED.

Delaware.

Delaware.

200075270_5583672328372600_4210469042411636259_n

Delaware’s scenic beauty, low taxes, and affordable housing
make this tiny state a wonderful place to live, work and play.

ADVICE FOR ANYONE MOVING TO DELAWARE…or just visiting.

1. The Beach traffic is horrible and never stops. It is like this year round.
This also applies to the state fair, Nascar, firefly, and any and all other events happening in Delaware.
2. It’s a different world below the canal. “Lower Slower Delaware”
3. If you do run your car into a ditch, don’t panic.
Four men in the cab of a four wheel drive with a 12-pack of beer and a tow chain will be along shortly. Don’t try to help them. Just stay out of their way. This is what they live for.
4. Remember: “Y’all” is singular. “All y’all” is plural. “All y’all’s” is plural possessive.
5. Get used to the phrase: “It’s not the heat, it’s the humidity”
And the collateral phrase: “You call this hot? Wait ’til August”
6. Don’t tell us how you did it up there. Nobody cares.
7. If you think it’s too hot, don’t worry. It will cool down in December (if you are lucky)
8. A Mercedes-Benz is not a status symbol. A Chevy, Dodge, or Ford is.
9. If someone says they’re “fixin” to do something, that doesn’t mean anything’s broken.
10. The value of a parking space is not determined by the distance to the door, but by the availability of shade.
11. If you see a slower moving vehicle on a two lane road pull onto the shoulder, that is called “courtesy”.
12. BBQ is a food group. It does NOT mean the act of grilling burgers and hot dogs outdoors.
13. Yes, weddings, funerals, and divorces must take into consideration Football games.
14. Everything is better with Ranch dressing.
15. DO NOT honk your horn at us to be obnoxious, we will sit there until we die.
16. We pull over and stop for emergency vehicles to pass.
17. We pull over for funeral processions, turn our music off and men remove hats or caps. Some people put their hand over their heart.
18. “Bless your Heart” is a nice way of saying you’re an idiot.
19. No matter what kind: sprite, coke, pepsi, mountain dew, it is called Soda
20. If you don’t like the weather in DELAWARE, wait 15 minutes, it will change.
21. Hughes scrapple is the best.
22. Everyone knows everyone so don’t talk shit it will get back to them!
23. Don’t speed in small towns down state (Felton , Greenwood, Harrington, etc.)
The “popo” will get you!!
24. You will get use to the smell.
25. Greenwood fire house chicken is the bomb!!!!
We ripped this from the interweb.
WELCOME TO DELAWARE!!

Shadow of a Man Total Eclipse in Madras, Oregon – August, 2017

MOON ALERT! Caution!
Avoid shopping or making important decisions after 10:30 pm PST
The Moon is in Gemini.

The first Solar Eclipse of 2021. The moon passed in front of the sun this morning and created a “Ring of Fire” effect visible in northern Canada, Greenland and the Arctic at sunrise.
And some of the Northern Hemisphere saw a partial eclipse. And some of us saw nothing.

A GALLON OF REGULAR GASOLINE COSTS $4.25 (‘arvage’ price)
TODAY
IN LOS ANGELES COUNTY! WTF? THAT’S F*CKIN’ CRIMINAL!
Gouge the shit out of the American public….. and help the GOP TRAITORS.
Every major corporation is raising prices to get a piece of your stimulus!
FUCK THEM! BOYCOTT ANY COMPANY THAT RAISES PRICES NOW!
Unfortunately, the OIL COMPANIES REMAIN A MONOPOLY and adjust prices whenever.
And when they raise the price of gas, the price of transportation goes up, and your AMAZON delivery guy has to pay more to bring you the shit MADE IN CHINA that you don’t need.
STOP BUYING SHIT MADE IN CHINA THAT YOU DON’T NEED!

6:10am: We haven’t had any coffee yet.
We woke up before 5:00am. We took the dogs outside.
We put the dogs back to bed. We’ve been sitting in the dark for an hour.
We did a load of laundry and spent solo time and fell asleep with the Big Boy.

6:55am: We set up the dog’s food. We got the newspapers.
We made a double espresso. Drink coffee. Drink water.
We are extremely thankful that all the dogs are healthy and happy again.
And now it’s time to take them outside and feed them breakfast.

8:00am: Okay, the dogs are fed. The dogs went outside. The dogs are chillin’.
We really need to do something today…..

(Son-Of-A-Bitch. We need to take our own advice.)
We ran errands yesterday while we out
and we FORGOT to wear our mask into the Post Office….
we went back out to the car and got it, but WTF?
WHERE IS OUR PARANOIA AND ANXIETY NOW?

National Geographic recognized the Earth’s fifth ocean!
The Southern Ocean around Antartica is now officially named.
It joins the Pacific, Atlantic, Indian, and Arctic Oceans on the map.

8:45am:
The “Today Show” on NBC is SELLING MORE SHIT YOU DON’T NEED ON AIR AGAIN!
It’s like a HSN segment, and they are pimping all kinds of crap with Q-Code on the TV screen!
“Steals and Deals” and SHIT MADE IN CHINA THAT YOU DON’T NEED! BUY! BUY! BUY!
REALLY? A TEN-MINUTE SHOPPING SEGMENT! And now some commercials. CLICK.
Okay, we’re going to make breakfast now.

NOTE: Don’t get us started on KTLA channel 5 in Los Angeles…..
They have daily shopping segments, paid promotions, contests/giveaways,
fashion shows, cooking segments, and endless chat (with plugs for products).
WHAT NEWS? Totally biased, morning crap, afternoon junk, and evening breaking news.
Someone needs to tell them that a viral video, or clip from another state is NOT NEWS.

Puppy Chillin’ on Thursday: “such good doggies”
196267763_4838855496140978_1128103799055791324_n

1:05pm: We only made an iced coffee and 2 toasted English muffins with peanut butter and raspberry jam because of timing….. the housekeeper is here, and we want her to clean the kitchen today. And we didn’t eat dinner last night, so we are really hungry now.
We had the dogs in the Home Office with us, but now she’s finished in the bedroom, so the dogs just went in there, while we think about food and get something to eat.

7:11pm: FUCK. Recapping Thursday afternoon and evening.
We took the dogs outside. We got dressed and went out.
We drove around. It was HOT out. We went to the McDonald’s Drive-Thru.
We came home and ate. Then we took the dogs outside.

First thing, we haven’t eaten “fast food” in years. We don’t count Habit Burger or Subway as “fast food”…. and it really has been years since we ate McDonald’s!
On the Menu: Double Cheeseburger (no pickle), 2 McChicken sandwiches (one spicy, one regular, both no mayo) and a small fries. No drink. (“Dollar Menu”? It cost us TEN BUCKS!)
We made an iced espresso after the dogs did their business.
We chilled with and without the dogs for the rest of the afternoon.
We took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs. We took the dogs outside.
We made another iced espresso…. if we didn’t we would be asleep now.
So, we updated this Blog Post. We posted the Mon-Tues-Wed Blog Post earlier today.
NEW BLOG POSTS! “Coffee Time Again!” and “Not Burning Man 2021” posted.

9:21pm: We fell asleep. We just woke up. We took the dogs outside.
We watched TV and surfed the internet. We slept. We woke up. We took the dogs outside.


The Lonesome Friends of Science
by John Prine RIP “may his memory be a blessing”

The lonesome friends of science say
The world will end most any day
Well, if it does, then that’s okay
‘Cause I don’t live here anyway
I live down deep inside my head
Well, long ago I made my bed
I get my mail in Tennessee
My wife, my dog and my family
Poor old planet Pluto now
He never stood a chance no how
When he got uninvited to
The interplanetary dance
Once a mighty planet there
Now just an ordinary star
Hanging out in Hollywood
In some old funky sushi bar
The lonesome friends of science say
The world will end most any day
Well, if it does, then that’s okay
‘Cause I don’t live here anyway
I live down deep inside my head
Well, long ago I made my bed
I get my mail in Tennessee
My wife, my dog, my kids and me
The Vulcan lives in Birmingham
Sometimes he just don’t give a damn
His head is full of bumblebees
His pride hangs down below his knees
Venus left him long ago
For a guy named Mars from Idaho
The Vulcan sent a wedding gift
Three-legged stool and a wheelchair lift
The lonesome friends of science say
This world will end most any day
Well, if it does, then that’s okay
‘Cause I don’t live here anyway
I live down deep inside my head
Well, long ago I made my bed
I get my mail in Tennessee
My wife, my dog, my kids and me
Those bastards in their white lab coats
Who experiment with mountain goats
Should leave the universe alone
It’s not their business, not their home
I go to sleep and it never rains
My dog predicts hurricanes
She can smell a storm a mile away
That’s all the news we have today
The lonesome friends of science say
The world will end most any day
Well, if it does, then that’s okay
‘Cause I don’t live here anyway
I live down deep inside my head
Well, long ago I made my bed
I get my mail in Tennessee
My wife, my dog, my kids and me

NOTE: Cannot get this earworm out of our head…..
Earworm: a tune or part of a song that repeats in one’s mind
(aka brainworm, sticky music, stuck song syndrome, or Involuntary Musical Imagery)
“Earworms are a generally benign form of rumination,
the repetitive, intrusive thoughts associated with anxiety and depression.”

5 Ways to STOP an Earworm (Science!}:
  1. LISTEN TO THE ENTIRE SONG.
    Earworms tend to be small fragments of music that repeat over and over
    (often a song’s refrain or chorus).
  2. LISTEN TO A “CURE TUNE.”
  3. DISTRACT YOURSELF WITH SOMETHING ELSE.
  4. CHEW GUM.
  5. LEAVE IT ALONE.

Happy birthday Jacques Cousteau! (1917-1997)

Bueller? Bueller? Bueller?

King Kamehameha I Day!
Kamehameha the Great (aka Kamehameha I or Kamehameha the First) ruled Hawaii from 1782 until his death on May 8, 1819, after he united the Hawaiian Islands in 1810. The holiday was first celebrated in 1872, after Hawaii became the 50th state on August 21, 1959.

2:05am: We woke up and took the big boy outside. We ate a bagel with cream cheese because we didn’t eat dinner again. Now we’re falling asleep in the office chair….

4:20am: We fell asleep. And we just woke up again.
So we took the dogs outside and now we’re all back in the Home Office and it’s dark outside.

6:55am: We went back to bed with the dogs. We woke up. We took the dogs outside.
We took the dogs outside again. We fed the dogs. We took the dogs outside again.
We made an iced espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water. We got the the newspapers.

8:20am: We are working on Blog Posts this morning and watching terrible television.
GOODBYE TO “KEEPING UP WITH THE KARDASHIANS” and Good Riddance.
We have never watched an episode, unless you count Lebron’s time at the Bunny Ranch.
Still working on the iced espresso. And we found a good German Chocolate Cake recipe.

National German Chocolate Cake Day! (and it’s NOT from Germany)
In 1852, American Sam German created a dark baking chocolate for American Baker’s Chocolate Company. Baker’s German Sweet Chocolate’s brand was named for him.
In 1957, “German’s Chocolate Cake” recipe was published in the Dallas Morning Star as the Recipe of the Day created by Mrs. George Clay, using Baker’s German’s Sweet Chocolate.
f594e7a6-7d49-4482-b776-ade63614e0b3
(see our previous Blog Post, we just posted a great recipe for German Chocolate Cake!)

10:00am: We ate a toasted bagel with cream cheese.
We took the dogs outside. It’s a beautiful day in the backyard.
Sunny and warm, not HOT yet.

AND EVERYTHING RETURNS TO NORMAL IN CALIFORNIA ON JUNE 15th….
“capacity and distancing restrictions will be lifted for most businesses and activities”
California Governor Gavin Newsom signed an executive order today ending the stay-at-home order and its various amendments on Tuesday, June 15th, 2021, after more than 15 months. Capacity limits, physical distancing, and mask requirements for businesses will end. People who are fully vaccinated will no longer be required to wear a mask anywhere, even indoors.
The state remains under a statewide declaration of emergency, and Newsom retains the authority to alter or suspend state laws indefinitely until he or the state Legislature end the emergency declaration.

It’s National Corn on the Cob Day!
Get the butter and salt! Boiling, steaming, roasting, and grilling are the most common ways of preparation. And proper dining etiquette says it is acceptable to hold the corn on the cob at each end with your fingers while eating.

5:15pm: We took the dogs outside again. And again. And again today.
It’s a perfect day (weather-wise) and we don’t have anything to do but mind the dogs.
We took an afternoon nap. We made some fresh corn on the cob for a late lunch.
We drank an iced espresso. And now we’re all chillin’.
They have to wait until it’s actually suppertime…. an hour or so.

On The Menu: Corn on the cob, with butter, a little salt, and some ancho chili powder
(and absolutely NO BLACK PEPPER! – who does that?)
196952611_4842647729095088_372360878097603498_n

6:15pm: We took the dogs outside. We put them in the bedroom.
We made some food. And we also prepped their supper.
On The Menu: Breakfast for dinner again.
2 eggs over medium, uncured bacon, a toasted bagel
with cream cheese, and celery with peanut butter
197360809_4842647592428435_4712583439637642435_n

7:40pm: Friday night, Good Shabbos!
We ate. The dogs got fed. The dogs went outside again.
The dogs were chillin’, and barking, and so the little ones are napping now.ale3det6kv931

9:00pm: We had a little nap too. And we’re up again now.

Saturday, June 12, 2021 – Anne Frank Day!

It’s  GHOST IN THE MACHINE Day!
Today, contemplate the interconnectedness of our minds and bodies!
Is our intelligence separate from our body? Can it live on after our body dies?
Think about your electronic devices that have minds of their own!
“Ghost in the Machine” is a philosophical concept for the connection between mind and body. Gilbert Ryle first used the phrase in his 1949 book “The Concept of Mind” when he called René Descartes’ ideas about mind-body dualism the “ghost in the machine.”
When an electronic device has a ghost in the machine and operates in a way contrary to the way its human operator wants it to function. (“a mind of it’s own”) and it may have an independent consciousness. “A.I. – Artificial Intelligence” is a reality now.
The “Ghost in the Machine” and artificial intelligence is also a favorite plot and storyline
for science-fiction and fantasy films, television episodes, and musical pieces.

It’s Russia Day! (Buh-bye to the U.S.S.R.) – and this is still a “travel blog”
On this day in 1990, the Russian Federation formally declared itself a sovereign nation.
RussianFlag

Russia (the Russian Federation) is a country spanning Eastern Europe and Northern Asia.
It is the largest country in the world, covering over 17 million square kilometres,
and encompassing more than one-eighth of Earth’s inhabited land area.

2:35am: “The Breakfast Club” was on after Ferris. We watched half of it.
We fell asleep again. We woke up again. And we took the dogs outside.

3:55am: We fell asleep again. We woke up again.

7:45am: We woke up at 6:30am when the Big Boy woke us up…..
We took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs. We took the dogs outside.
We got the newspapers. We made an iced espresso, which we haven’t drunk yet.

SATURDAY MORNING!
We’re wide awake. It’s a beautiful day outside already.
We’re expecting a HEATWAVE in SoCal this week…. SUMMER IS HERE.
It’s going to be HOT. Really HOT. (like “Africa Hot”) And beautiful too.

9:30am: Tempus fugit. Time flies mutha*cka.
We haven’t done anything. We’ve got YouTube vids running in sequence.
We have to do something today. But we really don’t have to do anything!
And we’re still working that first iced espresso…. and waiting for the mail.
DRINK COFFEE. DRINK WATER.
And we did clean up the Home Office desk area.
We just stopped, went outside and scooped the poop.We did something.
Scooping the poop from four dogs is definitely a “chore”.
The joys of pet ownership! And good healthy dog poops are a good thing!
Good healthy dogs! We love them, and that’s why we scoop the poop.
Keep the dogs’ areas and backyard clean.
And they don’t give them the opportunity to eat it.
Keep the rats out of the yard…. so many rats. And squirrels too.
Coyotes, raccoons, cats (both domestic and feral), opossums,
and even rabbits live in our neighborhood.
There was a big brown bunny in the front yard this morning.
“What’s up Doc?”

12:01pm: Good afternoon! We took the dogs outside. We got the mail.
Then we made some food for Saturday Brunch and ate it.
On The Menu: NY Steak, taterbites with BBQ sauce, carrot sticks and a coke.
197360808_4845735368786324_3685980557301881754_n

6:05pm: We didn’t do anything today. It got really HOT.
We took the dogs outside. And we took the dogs outside.
We drank an iced espresso. We set up the dog’s supper.
Now it’s time to feed the dogs again.

9:05pm: We took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs.
We took the dogs outside. Then we ordered some food.
Pizza time! Saturday night! The food came and we ate half of it!
On The Menu: Extra-large sausage and meatball, and an antipasto salad
with creamy caeser dressing. With an iced espresso to drink.
197558032_4845824938777367_4591570345173311252_n

10:05pm: We took a nice long shower.
We took the dogs outside one more time. Feeling very tired now.

“Some people like to rock, some people like to roll.
But a-moovin’ and a-groovin’ gonna satisfy my soul.”

5:20am: Too early to be awake. FUCK. So, we went back to bed.
We did not sleep well at all. We could not fall asleep.
And we couldn’t get comfortable. We got up and laid down more than once.
Finally we took a pill (which we hardly ever do) and an aspirin and fell asleep.

8:35am We made an iced espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.
The dogs got fed and went outside.
