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…..

ZERO CONTACT. ZERO CONTACT. ZERO CONTACT. ZERO CONTACT.
WEARAFUCKING(DOUBLE)MASK! WEARAFUCKING(DOUBLE)MASK!
(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.

(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.

“I heard that you were feeling ill, headache, fever, and a chill.
I’ve come here to restore your pluck, ’cause I’m the nurse who likes to……”

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.

Russia (Rossiyskaya Federatsiya): population 146,962,000 (2020 estimate)
unnamed

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.

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.
It’s really bright out already. Very sunny. Going to be HOT too.
