Shall we be trotting home again?”
But answer came there none —
And that was scarcely odd, because they’d eaten every one.”

239871307_10223493587986275_1108360114100760982_n

3:15am: We fell asleep for a few hours.
We woke up, it was Wednesday morning, and we made dinner at 3:00am.
On The Menu: Chicken and cheese sandwich on toasted oat bread
and a glass of cran-raspberry-orange juice to drink (no pic)

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZ (Bark Bark Bark) ZZZZZZZZ

2:55pm: Hey, it’s Wednesday. We went back to bed and slept late.
The dogs went outside. The dogs got fed. We drank an iced espresso.
The newspapers and the mail were retrieved. The poop was scooped.
The gardener is here so the dogs are chillin’. It’s very HOT outside.
Windy and warm, right? And now we are going to run errands.
We got dressed and went out of the house:
Bank, Post Office, Misc. Errands. Miss Donuts. And Four Thrift Stores.

WE VOTED!
236633255_5057785004248025_5851931062943872805_n
We mailed our Recall Ballot today. VOTE NO ON THE CALIFORNIA RECALL.
We are not a fan of Governor Newsom, but we don’t want him recalled.
THIS IS GOP TRAITOR POLITICS AT WORK AND MUST BE STOPPED!

Stopped at Miss Donuts in Reseda. picked up an eclair, a chocolate covered creme puff,
2 chocolate covered custard filled donuts, and a cinnamon roll.
240386887_5068250659868126_2714895134183309596_n
Miss Donut is where the robbery scene in “Boogie Nights” was filmed.

And we went to FOUR thrift stores today.
We were around way too many people!
We tried to maintain and stay calm, BUT. NO.
It doesn’t feel safe to be out in public around strangers.
We are not comfortable browsing/shopping because of other people.
So we bought some stuff, retail therapy fail, and then we drove home. 
AND STILL FEELING THE STRESS AND ANXIETY FROM SHOPPING!

The dogs got fed. The dogs went outside. We got and ate dinner.
On The Menu: Double bbq bacon char-burger (WAY OVER COOKED) and fries
239852517_5068250996534759_6614334723828213781_n

We took the dog outside.

11:20pm: Well, we ate a donut, the creme puff, and the eclair for dessert.

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZ

12:50pm: okay, it’s ThrowbackThursday. And it’s almost 1:00pm.

We put on pants, to go do more errands, but then we took them off.

DO YOU TRUST THE GOVERNMENT TO TELL YOU THE TRUTH?
Really? After going out yesterday, we just want to ZERO CONTACT again.

“Wave That Flag!” The United States of America

12 United States Service Members were killed in suicide bombings in Afghanistan.
17 more wounded. So, how about a press conference with General Mackenzie?
Kabul is in total chaos. 1500 US Citizens remain? Really? 3000 Troops? Really?
Evacuations continue as per the Taliban…. August 31 Deadline…. TOTAL FAIL.
TRUMP SOLD OUT THE UNITED STATES. AND THE GOP TRAITORS NEED TO STFU.
BEFORE THEY SAY SHIT THERE MUST BE PUBLIC HEARINGS ABOUT JANUARY 6th!

200227960_6691935964150658_5316607221665595579_n

1:20pm: VERY HOT outside – 100+ DEGREES today and for the next 4 days!
“WE’RE HAVING A HEATWAVE” so stay inside. AND IT SMELLS LIKE FIRE AND SMOKE!
Big fires burning up north, and a big fire burning to the south in San Berdoo.
AIR QUALITY IS UNHEALTHFUL TO DEADLY in some places.
So, we ate the last donut. No shame. We indulged ourself on pastries and sugar.
Now back to our regularly scheduled diet. NO WE ARE NOT DIETING.
But we have lost a bunch of weight since the “pre-pandemic” days. 15+ pounds!
Almost 20, but we are fluctuating between 15 and 20 and we don’t want to brag.

2:10pm: Nothing is happening today. Almost took a nap.

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZ (Bark Bark Bark) FUCK.

It’s National Dog Day! We love our pack. Such good doggies.
44314221_2496352830391268_7215479851086512128_n

11:00pm: The dogs got fed. The dogs went outside. We drank an iced espresso with dinner.
On The Menu: We ordered a pizza delivery. Extra-large with sausage and meatball.

The dogs went outside. The dogs were chillin’ while we ate.
We chatted online with an old friend (something we never do) for a long time.

We miss having real live friends….. but do they miss me?
239838261_10158394204316408_8553012263859418170_n 

We watched “Suicide Squad” directed by James Gunn 
WHY? The DC Comic movies are all pretty bad.
And compared to the new Marvel superhero films, they totally suck.
This one was okay, ultra-violent, full of gore, and without purpose.
Weird Tongue-in-cheek humor to desensitize the viewer to the carnage.
EXCEPT TO SELL TICKETS AT THE BOX OFFICE AND PAY-PER-VIEW…
(and this was the Suicide Squad REBOOT…. there’s already one with Will Smith)
NOTE: As a young collector, before there were any films, 
we always liked the Marvel Comic much better than the DC Comics.


COVID-19 is still the leading cause of death in the United States.
635000+ Reported Deaths in the United States from COVID-19
as of Thursday.
65480+ Reported Deaths in California from COVID-19 as of Thursday night.
53720+ Reported Deaths in New York from COVID-19 as of Thursday night.
(these are the reported numbers, the true numbers are much higher)

168090583_2801666060144262_5641567001358441992_n

WARNING! COVID-19 (the Delta Variant) is spreading
and case numbers are rising in all 50 states.

Remembering my little girls today.
May their memory be blessed!
IMG_3611 1

12:20am: And so it begins, we still haven’t eaten.
We took the dog outside. We drank an iced espresso.

1:01am: We banged out breakfast for dinner and just consumed it.
And we took the dogs outside one more time.

On The Menu: Breakfast Burrito made with 3 eggs over medium, bacon,
and a quesadilla with salsa; carrot sticks, cherries, and another iced espresso.
233211993_5022835951076264_1890026003616485116_n

7:07am: We woke up early again. We took the dog outside.
We played with the dog. We published our DoNotTravelTuesday Blog Post.

It’s NATIONAL SON’S AND DAUGHTER’S DAY (“None that we know of….”)
so, we’ll just move along today.

8:00am: Dogs barking. The dogs went outside. The dogs got fed.

10:30am: Drank an iced espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.
Got the newspapers and the mail.
11:15am: We ate a banana.

It’s NATIONAL PRESIDENTIAL GOP TRAITOR JOKE DAY:
(at least we can almost joke about Trump again)
a1dab4d15feaadb36d4518dee5f27bb4
TRUMP IS A CRIMINAL CON MAN!
AND TRUMPERS ARE LOSERS AND SUCKERS! “That’s all today.”

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

2:55pm: We fell asleep and took a nice nap.
And now the gardener is here again.

Recapping Wednesday evening. We ordered a dinner delivery.
The dogs went outside. The dogs got fed. The food arrived.
We ate dinner, watched “Jeopardy”, and then fell asleep.

On The Menu: Chinese food. Kung pao chicken, chicken and stringbeans,
orange peel beef, chicken egg rolls, steamed rice, and an iced espresso to drink
235240870_5024374044255788_447044764878171538_n

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

11:30pm: We woke up. We took the dog outside.
And now we’re updating our Blog Post.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is real and not a joke.
There were coyotes outside the house yesterday morning and tonight.
It’s been five years (2016) since the little girls
were killed by coyotes in our fenced backyard.
We also have some nasty raccoons in the neighborhood,
and we saw the really fat one out front this morning too.
(and we can hear them in the ivy and bushes outside at night)
There’s also a big hawk, a mated pair of hawks, and two owls that hunt at night.
And the hawks perch in the neighbor’s tall pine tree during the day too.

So we are chillin’ with the dog, and he’s being adorable and cute.
He was sleeping at our feet, under the desk,
and now he just moved next to us and is sleeping in his play bed.
The other dogs are sleeping in their houses the bedroom.
And it’s Thursday morning, just past midnight.
Sarah Silverman is guest hosting “Jimmy Kimmel Live” tonight.
And she’s killin’ it. And Guillermo tested positive for COVID-19!
So he’s quarantined at home, and hasn’t been on the show this week,
but he made a remote appearance today during the monologue,
and Sarah sent him a get well gift: a jumbo-sized bottle
of Don Julio tequila and 6 big bags of Flaming Cheetos.

It’s NATIONAL RASPBERRY BOMBE DAY!

Professional Cooking Tips!

Professional Cooking Tips! (ripped from the Interweb)

0d03511a2ce623e17e07786b61a016de

“To be a good cook you have to have a love of the good,
a love of hard work, and a love of creating.”
– Julia Child

And so, here are some great professional cooking tips and tricks
that we have collected from the interweb. We love to cook!
NOTE: We learned at an early age. We had a cooking class in junior high.
We chose apartment-style living at UCSC (with a kitchen so we
could cook for ourself) instead of dormitory living and “dining-hall” food.
We are not a professional chef, but some of our cooking is pro quality.

And away we go….

ALWAYS WASH YOUR HANDS! (and wash them frequently while cooking)
CLEAN AND SANITIZE YOURSELF, YOUR KITCHEN, AND YOUR FOOD!
Learn about kitchen safety/sanitation and safe food storage and preparation.

Drink Coffee. Drink Water. (stay awake and alert, and always stay well hydrated)

Prevent the cutting board from slipping – place a wet paper towel underneath it.

ALWAYS USE A SHARP KNIFE!
Sharpen your knives before, clean your knives after.
Use a vegetable peeler for ultra-thin cuts and shaving.
Learn how to hold the knife properly!
Learn the proper knife technique for the type of food you are cutting!
(and there are great YouTube vids on “how to” cut up everything)

Heat your pans before cooking (so they are already HOT).
Preheat your oven for 20 minutes at temperature before cooking and baking.
Constant heat and proper temperature are necessary for professional cooking.

Baker’s Tip: Put a bowl of water inside the oven when baking.
The steam will help make a nice crispy bread crust.

do-land-olakes-indian-butter-boob-trick.w1456

Use eggs and butter at room temperature when making dough.
Take the eggs and butter out of the fridge the night before.

Caramelized sugar for baking.
Slightly frying the sugar will add a note of caramel to baked goods.
Heat sugar for one hour for a hint of caramel flavor,
or heat for up to five hours to create a deep and unique aroma and taste.

cookie-testing02text

Try to eat healthy, well-balanced meals.
Add healthy fats, cut sodium, bump up your fiber,
and aim for a variety of colors on your plate.
(but never sacrifice good food for a bad “diet”)

Cook your aromatics first. 
Cook onions with salt. Add salt to reduce the smell. It will also cook them faster.
Add onions while the food is cooking.
Onions need time to develop their sweet flavor profile,
so they are one of the first ingredients to add to the pan.
NOTE: Garlic burns easily and the taste will turn bitter, so don’t add it early.

90810941c5c1e3443a0f3b3b67fba8ca_1000-images-about-chef-cooks-disney-characters-cook-clipart_236-317

Know when to add the herbs. 
Add dried herbs while cooking to enable the flavor to infuse the dish.
Fresh herbs should be added after the food is done cooking.
Fresh herbs will turn bitter if overcooked.

Use both salt and acid when seasoning.
Add the salt to your dish while you cook,
not before (and taste frequently) to avoid over-salting.
Use sugar as a seasoning.
It counteracts sour taste and will add a pleasant and rich flavor.

“The more you know, the more you can create.
There’s no end to imagination in the kitchen.” – Julia Child

food-chemistry-chemistry-of-a-lemon-1024x724

Add a dash of high-quality extra virgin olive oil to enhance your dish.
But don’t use olive oil in everything. Use pure vegetable oil for cooking.
Olive oil burns easily! It is not good for high-temp cooking and frying.

Brine your Meat! Brining makes for juicy meat.
Create a juicy texture and infuse rich flavor, and minimize
the chance of the meat drying out or being overcooked.

Marinate meat or fish in a plastic bag.
This ensures the meat or fish is coated evenly.
(also makes for an easy cleanup)



Sou Chan 1952

“Life, like a cookie jar, would soon be empty
if you continued to accept the good things it offers
and put in no good things in return.”
– Sou Chan (from The House of Chan) 1952

Cook steaks that are at room temperature and they will cook more evenly.
And not all cuts of meat take the same time to cook!
For quick cooking, choose tenderloins and steaks.
For longer and slower cooking, use a roast, brisket, or shoulder cut.

Cook steak without oil by placing it on its side when cooking.
Cooking meat on the side renders the fat and will add more flavor.
It will also create a nice crust for the edges.

Make burgers juicy by placing ice cubes in the middle of the patties.
Right before grilling, press a small piece of ice into the center of patty.
This prevents it from drying out while cooking.

wendys-wheres-the-beef

Read our previous Blog Post “Where’s The Beef?”

Heat the saute pan to a high temperature before searing meat or fish.
Pre-heat your pan and Don’t crowd the food when searing.
High heat is needed for perfectly seared meat and fish.
Do not to crowd the pan because it will lose the high cooking heat.
Place fish in pan with the skin side down first.
The high temp will quickly sear the skin and prevent it from sticking.

68693456_1223958611147608_8413414811978694656_n

Use mayonnaise on fish to get a nice tasty crust.
Paint a small amount of mayo onto the fish with a pastry brush
and then season with salt before grilling. This will make a nice golden crust.

Make scrambled eggs creamy by adding mayonnaise.
Just add a teaspoon of mayo, it won’t change the flavor of the eggs.

Anthony-Bourdain-quotes-18-e1602880813514

Use sour cream to make great pancakes.
Add 2 tablespoons of sour cream to the pancake mix.
It will make the pancakes tasty and fluffy.

Peel hard boiled eggs fast and easy!
Just add a little baking soda before you boil them.
You can also use vinegar.
Both ingredients get inside the eggshell, and will make them peel faster.

Use a large frying pan instead of a big pot when cooking pasta.
The wider area of the pan will heat the water faster.
Pick the right size pan for the amount of pasta being cooked.
Add a little olive oil and salt the pasta to taste after the water is boiling.
The salt will season the pasta.
The oil prevents the pasta from sticking and adds flavor.
Cook pasta in the sauce to finish.
The sauce will coat the noodles and they will absorb the flavor.
If the sauce is too thick, just add a little pasta water to create the thickness desired.

“Chef” with Jon Favreau, John Leguizamo, and Bobby Carnavale

Dry boil potatoes before mashing.
After boiling, remove potatoes from water and place in a clean heated pan.
Make sure they don’t cook anymore. Once dry, mash them.

Make Roasted Garlic in the microwave.
Place a whole bulb of garlic in a small bowl with a little oil and water.
Wrap the bowl in plastic wrap before microwaving. Cook until the garlic is soft.

To cook a perfect egg, you will only need three things: 
a thick-wall frying pan, a 1/2 tablespoon of butter, and an egg.
Cook for 4-5 minutes over a low heat. Don’t forget to add a pinch of salt.
Remember, eggs will continue to cook after being removed from the pan!

TIP: Use an egg slicer to cut and slice fruits.

Monday, July 19, 2021 – It’s the 200th day of the year!

mktplmonpromo

On this day in AD 64, The Great Fire of Rome begins
and it rages on for six days, and destroys half of the city.

On this day in 1943, during World War II,
Rome was bombed by 500 Allied Aircraft.

Today is the 87th Anniversary of The Original Farmer’s Market in Los Angeles.
Located at Fairfax and 3rd in Hollywood/West Hollywood.

1:20am: We finally got hungry enough to make some food at 1:00am.
On The Menu: BBQ steak (rib-eye) & jack cheese w/sautéed onions
on a toasted sesame bagel with a dill pickle
215880535_4951030291590164_2092221714362353656_n

2:15am: So, we’ve been bouncing back and forth between TV and the interweb.
Podcasts, YouTube, “Dune”, documentaries, news, “Two and a Half Men”, etc.
And we binge-watched the first season of “The Mandalorian” on Thursday.

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.

8:15am: We woke up around 6:30am. We took the dogs outside.
We fed the dogs. We took the dogs outside. We got the newspapers.
We drank an iced espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.
And now we’re awake and in the Home Office. Fuckin’ Monday morning.
Read our previous Blog Post “A Case of the Mondays?”

9:10am: We took the dogs outside again.
We drank another iced espresso.
We ate a toasted sesame bagel with cream cheese.

12:20pm: We took the dogs outside. We scooped the poop. We got the mail.
We put more water in the swimming pool…. but there might be a leak.
That’s a big problem if the pool is leaking! And it’s also really HOT outside.
!HACE MUCHO CALOR!
The housekeeper is here cleaning. The dogs are in the bedroom.
And we have local errands to run that we should have finished an hour ago.
Fuckin’ Monday.

208805362_1576678796010034_8356502406251992041_n

3:40pm: Well, after spending a HOT time outside, we got a case of the “fuckits”.
And we said “FUCK IT” and then we got undressed and took a nap.
No errands today. The housekeeper finished and left. We slept for a little bit.
We woke up and took the dogs outside. Now chillin’ again in the Home Office.
And we’ll do those errands tomorrow. Maybe.

There’s a brush fire burning in Flores Canyon in Topanga near Malibu….
(and at 6:30pm it’s pretty much contained)

There was a pursuit! First he’s going to rob someone with a machete,
then he’s going run from the police, hit a couple spike strips, still try to get away,
and then smoke a cigarette while the LAPD waits to arrest him.
Surrender when you feel like it. Suspect in custody.

6:30pm: We took a nap with the dogs. We woke up. We prepped their supper.
We took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs. We took the dogs outside.
It’s still really HOT out. We drank another iced espresso.

We heated up a meat pie. We ate it, but it sucked. And we’re still hungry.
We thought it was chicken, but it was beef? and mushrooms. BLEH.
218937533_4956139147745945_5069727481076286309_n

10:30pm: Fleas! And now we have fleas. The little girl just got a flea bath.
She went on vacation and came back with fleas….  we don’t have words.
Can’t deal with biting insects. And can’t deal with the other dogs right now.

The TOKYO 2020 2021 OLYMPICS begin this week.
217496361_4949536761739517_3742050912911376299_n
More athletes have tested positive for COVID-19 in Japan.
(71 cases among athletes, staff, and support personnel)
The Olympics will go forward despite the CoronaVirus Delta Variant
and rising case numbers in Japan and worldwide.
(1071 New Cases in Tokyo yesterday = case numbers are rising!)

NOTE: The TSA screened 2.2Million passengers yesterday (Sunday).


Tuesday, July 20, 2021 – Happy Birthday Bob!
Happy birthday Carlos Santana! Oye Como Va!”

On this day in 1969, Humans walked on The Moon. (maybe)
Neil Armstrong: “That’s one step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” 

219379961_4472485876096462_8246988265435095291_n

We ate that crappy meat pie for dinner.
And then we got hungry after midnight for some good food.
So, we banged out some real dinner at 1:00am.

On the Menu: Steak soft taco with salsa verde
219661105_4956138294412697_2869069672080848085_n

We woke up early. The dogs went outside. The dogs got fed.
And the dogs have fleas. We watched the launch on TV this morning.

216274310_10158385512503575_8778950766773013601_n

6:35am: Blue Origin “First Human Flight” (civilian space flight)
Amazon Billionaire Jeff Bezos and 3 other humans went for a ride.
A REALLY EXPENSIVE RIDE. 66 miles high, under 11 minutes.
What was the purpose? Why? And seriously, they didn’t go to space.
They went to an imagined distance that we call “space”. And they didn’t die.
220073538_10215915990207575_1351813359309672544_n
And Sir Richard Branson with “Virgin Galactic” shot his wad last week.

NOTE: When Bezos did land, the crowd around the ‘capsule’ was incredibly white.
White guys wearing cowboy hats and popping bottles of champagne in the dirt,
the only people of color we saw were the media people covering the event.

“Jeff Bezos’ recreational space trip cost $2,540,000 per minute,
and we’re still arguing about whether the billionaires need to be taxed.”
– Robert Reich

WEARAFUCKINGMASK! And wear it all the time.
The “rules” for mask wearing are ridiculous! On here, off there….
Indoors. Outdoors? WHO IS SAFE? Where are you safe?
99.5% of current COVID-19 DEATHS are unvaccinated people.
Too many people are still not fully vaccinated.
The Delta Variant is spreading rapidly. Now over 80% of cases.

Screen Shot 2021-07-23 at 03.28.09

7:30am: We are in a weird space this morning.
8:00am: We just washed the other little girl. She got a nice flea bath.
And we are also doing a load of laundry with all the cage bedding.

8:40am: Watched the Jeff and Mark Bezos interview with Anderson Cooper earlier.
Now watching the exact same interview with Michael Strahan EXACTLY THE SAME!
SAME QUESTIONS. SAME ANSWERS. 
Total Circle Jerk.

9:30am: We took the dogs outside. And now they’re all in the Home Office.

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZ.

4:15pm: We took a nap with the dogs. We woke up and took the dogs outside.
We played with them and had them in the Home Office. They’re all good today.
It’s HOT. We wasted another day. How is it after 4:00pm already?
We made/ate some lunch.

On The Menu: Chicken and cheese street tacos on corn tortillas
with salsa verde and guacamole and an iced espresso to drink.
217573146_4956137814412745_2533019810220447312_n

7:50pm: Okay, here’s the Tuesday update.
The dogs went outside. The dogs got fed. The dogs went outside.
We surfed the interweb and fell asleep for a little bit.
JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZ. We woke up around 11:00pm.
We made and ate dinner after midnight….sometime around 1:00am.
On The Menu: Bone-in rib-eye steak with sauteed onions, steamed broccoli,
and shoestring potatoes, with cran-raspberry-orange juice

Wednesday, July 21, 2021

5:30am: We fell asleep for a little bit and woke up around 4:30am.
We started binge-watching “The Mandalorian” season 2.
6:45am: The dogs went outside. The dogs got fed.

7:35am: We made an iced espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.

219290875_10222999720813987_6786578080903487255_n

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZ.

10:20am: We went back to bed. We woke up.
And there’s a pursuit on right now!
Burglary suspect driving a BMW around Upland, California.
He parked and bailed into a backyard under some trees.
Now he’s surrounded and hiding…. We made an iced espresso.
212089828_4958437664182760_4018819267505602672_n
11:20am: Well, everyone cut away from the yard to yard search.
So, we may or may not hear what happened. And that sucks.
When the media cuts away and then it’s over before it’s over.
The helicopters run out of gas, and there’s no backup to cover.
We are left wondering and fully unsatisfied without a conclusion.
So, now, on with our day. UPDATE: Suspect in custody.

Harvey Weinstein is back in Los Angeles to face more charges here.
RAPE AND SEXUAL ASSAULT. Harvey raped and got away with it for years.
He was already convicted in New York and will die in prison,
and his lawyers just pleaded “Not guilty” in Downtown LA…. SCUMBAG.

There’s MASSIVE FLOODING in Germany and in China! Climate change is real.
Wildfires are burning throughout the western United States.
Northern California and Oregon are ON FIRE again.
DROUGHT and BURN CONDITIONS are the worst they’ve ever been.

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZ.

3:15pm: We took a nap. We woke up and took a nap. We ate half a dill pickle.
And the gardener came. (leaf blower) We woke up. We made an iced espresso.

ANOTHER PURSUIT!
Chattering like hens, speculating, talking shit about stuff they don’t know about,
totally irresponsible journalism! JUST REPORT THE FACTS AND DON’T GUESS!

Got off the 110 in Pasadena, the Pasadena PD tried a PIT Maneuver and popped the rear tire.
The guy tried to get away, got back on the freeway, tire gave out, slow speed pursuit, and then the gut hit two freeway signs and then a highway divider. Stopped. Trapped. And he quickly surrendered. Suspect in custody.
Screen Shot 2021-07-21 at 16.04.20

4:30pm: “You are the father.” Maury never gets old…. really?
Switch to the local news. It’s HOT. And it might rain on Monday.

5:20pm: The dogs went outside. The dogs got fed.
We took a nice hot shower. We had a pizza delivered.
We did a load of laundry. We did a little organizing.

92439123_1216567998719680_9141907193128288256_o

On The Menu: BBQ chicken pizza from CPK
and some frozen chocolate custard for dessert later.

Remembering Alex Trebek RIP on his birthday!
May his memory be a blessing!

220315905_6611021275590019_802234780780825614_n

On this day in 1934,
the FBI killed bank robber John Dillinger (June 22, 1903 – July 22, 1934)
outside the Biograph Theater in Chicago, Illinois.

NATIONAL MANGO DAY!

NATIONAL REFRESHMENT DAY

NATIONAL PENUCHE FUDGE DAY (maple flavor nut-filled fudge)
Brown sugar fudge candy.
The Italian word is panucci, pronounced pe-new-chee
Made with brown sugar, butter, vanilla, and milk (and pecans or other nuts)

NATIONAL HAMMOCK DAY

NATIONAL RAT CATCHER’S DAY – “Don’t forget to pay the piper!”
National Rat Catcher’s Day commemorates the story of the Pied Piper of Hamelin.
It’s also an opportunity to thank your pest control professionals (exterminators).

8:25am: We are awake. Hello Thursday morning. How is it Thursday?
We got woken up by the trash truck out front and the little dog in the bed.
We took the dog outside. We went into the kitchen. We took the dog outside.
We made and drank a cup of espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.

11:30am: We drank an iced espresso. The housekeeper is here.
The dogs are in the Home Office with us and they are napping now.
It looks like a dog bomb went off up in here. “The Dog Days of Summer”

7:40pm: Recapping Thursday afternoon and evening now.
We meant to do the errands we didn’t do on Monday, then Tuesday….
but we got a case of the “fuckits” and didn’t do anything again today.
We joined the club for a late lunch. Then we fell asleep around 5:30pm.
We just woke up and made an iced espresso.
The dogs went outside. The dogs got fed. The dogs are chillin’.
On The Menu: Club sandwich with sweet potato fries and frilly toothpicks:

Friday, July 16, 2021 – World Snake Day!

image-placeholder-title

On this day in 1969, Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins
launched aboard Apollo 11 (July 16–24, 1969), the first spaceflight
with the objective of landing humans on the Moon.
On July 21, 1969, Armstrong became the first man to walk on the lunar surface,
at 02:56 UTC, and Aldrin became the second man 19 minutes later.

1:35am: We ate and watched episode 8 of “The Mandalorian”.
And now we’re watching episode 9…… it’s a “Deadwood” reunion!

2:30am: We took the dogs outside.
And now they’re back in the Home Office with us.

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.

7:20am: Okay, we slept, but it wasn’t good sleep. We woke up.
We made a double iced espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.
We took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs. We took the dogs outside.

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.

12:05pm: And we’re awake again. We fell asleep and slept. It was good.
But now it’s noon. It’s a beautiful day outside. We got the newspapers.
We took the dogs outside. And now we’re updating this Blog Post.

NOTE: When we took the dogs outside, we noticed that the water in the swimming pool was very low. So we turned on the water from the hose and put it in the pool. And then for the next 20 minutes we kept chanting “Pool Water” so we wouldn’t let it run all day long. And we just went back outside and turned it off. Good job!

A sunny Friday Afternoon in mid-July.

The stature of Confederate General Robert E. Lee
was finally removed from Charlotte, North Carolina, today.

BLACKLIVESMATTER!

1:20pm: We made another iced espresso. We ate some dry salami.

10:30pm: Chore Boy showed up and vacuumed. He did some laundry too.
We gave the little boy a bath with baking soda, because he’s been itching.
We ordered a pizza delivery.

On The Menu: Extra-large pizza with sausage and meatball. Good Shabbos!

Saturday, July 17, 2021 – Happy 66th Birthday Disneyland!
On this day in 1955, DISNEYLAND OPENED TO THE PUBLIC!

1452534_10152103057974090_664791663_n

“To all who come to this happy place; welcome. Disneyland is your land.
Here age relives fond memories of the past…and here youth may savor the challenge and promise of the future. Disneyland is dedicated to the ideals, the dreams and the hard facts that have created America…with the hope that it will be a source of joy and inspiration to all the world.”
– Walt Disney’s Disneyland Opening Day Speech

214542250_4945932165433310_8829639856895350938_n

12:15am: We fell asleep after pizza for an hour. And then we woke up.
We took the dogs outside. And now we’re all chillin’ in the Home Office

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.

8:45am: We are awake. We woke up early (around 6:00am).
We prepped the dog’s food. We folded some laundry.
We took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs. We took the dogs outside.
We got the newspapers. We drank an iced espresso.
Now we are chillin’ in the Home Office and the dogs are sleeping.

217020778_4947017671991426_2781761364832285473_n

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.

2:35pm: We went back to bed and slept. We woke up.
We took the dogs outside. They went back to sleep.
We are awake. And we are hungry now.
We took the dogs outside again. And now they’re sleeping again.
We drank another iced espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.

4:35pm: We got the mail.
Our regular postman must be on vacation, because our mail is coming late in the day,
instead of in the morning, so the substitute must be doing the route in reverse. Kinda sucks. And it’s HOT outside, and it’s noticeable just going from the door to the mailbox at 4:30pm. We ate two pieces of cold leftover pizza. And all is quiet on the Home Front and in the neighborhood.

110319859_3843452635681274_3582856459062045494_n

5:45pm: It’s currently 83 degrees outside.
We just prepped the dogs food for supper.
We made a double iced espresso.

6:30pm: We took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs.
We took the dogs outside. And now we’re back in the Home Office.

“Hey, Saturday Night!”

There was a guy dancing on top of Knott’s Berry Farm tonight!

215887196_4947573768602483_5286759269678387871_n

“At approximately 7:23pm, Knott’s Berry Farm became aware of a male who had accessed a unauthorized area and climbed the Supreme Scream tower. Park personnel alerted local law enforcement and emergency responders who are now on site. The guest descended the tower at 8:55pm and is now currently safely on the ground in police custody. No other information is available at this time. The safety of our guests is always our top priority.”

On The Menu: 2 pieces of cold leftover pizza for dinner around 10:30pm.
And we scrounged around in the fridge after midnight for some stuff to eat.
Dry salami, dill pickle, toasted croissant, and some trail mix.

11:59pm: The “NEW MASK REQUIRED INDOORS”
(regardless of vaccination status) is now in effect in Los Angeles County!

It’s the 199th day of the year,
and as of today, there are 166 days until 2022.

Happy Birthday Hunter Stockton Thompson! RIP
Born July 18, 1937, Louisville, Kentucky
Died (self inflicted gun shot) February 20, 2005, Woody Creek, Colorado.

2:20am: We’re still awake on Sunday Morning (Saturday night continued)
2:50am: And we’re still awake.

zodiac-glyphs

Do you believe in astrological horoscopes?
Here’s ours for today:
“Your home routine will be interrupted.
A small appliance might break down or a minor breakage could occur.
Perhaps someone unexpected will knock on your door?”

1024px-Zodiac_(PSF)

4:20am: Yep, still awake.
5:05am: We took the dogs outside. Now they’re sleeping in the bedroom.

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.

11:05am: We crashed hard as the sun was rising. And we slept until 10:30am.
We woke up. We took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs. We took the dogs outside.
We made an iced espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.
We got the newspapers. Morning stuff is done.

2:00pm: We took the dogs outside again. It’s really HOT. And really bright.
And so we are chillin’ in the Home Office with the dogs on Sunday afternoon.
TV and the interweb again. Staying entertained.
3:00pm: We made an iced espresso. We ate a piece of poundcake.
4:50pm: We took a little nap. We woke up.
We ate two pieces of cold leftover pizza.

7:30pm: We took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs. We took the dogs outside.
We took a little nap. We woke up, and the dogs are sleeping.

11:11pm: We took the dogs outside again. We made one more iced espresso.

218653699_1948568415300040_630187971038053971_n
Read our previous Blog Posts about Coffee!

And now let’s talk about that horoscope…. nothing broke, thank you. BUT:
Our step-sister and her family stopped by on the way back from San Francisco.
They had taken our SUV on the weekend road trip, and left their car at the house.
We also received a special package for them yesterday that they picked up tonight.
LA to SF – there and back. That’s a lot of driving for a weekend in San Francisco.
So, it wasn’t unexpected, but we didn’t know when they would be coming back.
So they showed up at 10:00pm, we took care of the business, they switched cars,
got the package, we chatted for a while and then they drove away.
And so my “Home Routine” of doing nothing on Sunday night was interrupted.
Take it for what it’s worth.

Happy birthday Woody Guthrie!
Happy birthday Cheech Marin!

On this day in 1985, the LIVE AID concerts were held in Philadelphia and London
to raise money to “Feed The World” and provide starvation relief in Ethiopia.
We were on the beach at the Grateful Dead concert in Ventura.

3:05am: We ate some Grater’s Ice Cream at 3AM!
(Chocolate Chip and Double Chocolate Chip)

8:40am: And we’re awake again. We slept a little. There were dogs barking.
We woke up and didn’t really get back to sleep. And now we’re awake.

9:25am: We made a double iced espresso.
And it’s raining outside! Well, drizzling or sprinkling.
WATER IS FALLING FROM THE SKY! And some of it is reaching the ground.

10:50am: Well, it stopped “raining” but it’s still gray out.
Reminds us of a Marin County Summer morning, the color, the temp, the humidity.
We took the dog outside. We played with the dog. We’re chillin’ on Tuesday.

12:30pm: We took a short unplanned nap with the dog…. and now we’re up again.
We took the dog outside. And we took the dog outside again.

The Emmy Nominations were announced today in Hollywood.
We know someone nominated. He was on KTLA with Sam Rubin this morning.

Disneyland’s “Jungle Cruise” got a remodel during the pandemic closure.
All the controversial scenes (with the African natives) have been changed.
The classic Adventureland theme park ride re-opens this week.

2:15pm: We made an iced espresso

6:00pm: We have company! Real live people in the house today.
Family visiting from a FOREIGN COUNTRY! Unmasked and personal!
Hugs, handshakes, hor d’oeuvres…. and we’re going to have dinner.
A LITTLE TOO WEIRD. They are tested and vaccinated, but it’s weird.
Our step-sister and her husband and children are here.
They are from the Czech Republic.
And they’re driving to San Francisco tomorrow. Not what we would do….
We advised them to take the 101 north, and not Interstate 5, or Highway 1,
because of the Central Valley heat, the scenery and nice places to stop on US 101,
and the truck traffic on the 5 freeway and tourist traffic on Highway 1.

US 101 will take you through the city of San Francisco and across
the Golden Gate Bridge, through Marin County, and all the way to Oregon.

There is NO TOLL on the Golden Gate Bridge going north, leaving the city.

8:20pm: Well my step-sister’s son is 12 and he can shred on the guitar.
Kid is jammin’ tunes on an acoustic Gibson, but he says he plays electric.
We bought him a new Ibanez electric guitar with all the bells and whistles.
He says he plays by ear when we recommend a YouTube site: JDarks

Would love to have him do “reaction vids” as he discovers new music!

9:25pm: We sat him down and showed him a couple “old school” YouTube vids.
Then they served the ice cream and we were done with the music lesson.
And so we enjoyed some ice cream for dessert too.
We gave them some travel tips for their trip to San Francisco.
And they just left the house. It was fun to see them and sort of play uncle….
(we like kids when we can give them back) and it’s been three years.

“San Francisco’s Cable Cars Will Be Free to Ride When They Come Back in August”
So they won’t be riding the cable cars this week. They were closed for the pandemic.
But they announced the return of the Cable Cars today, and they’ll be FREE for a month.

California’s Governor Gavin Newsom, who is now being recalled,
announced all kinds of good stuff today: Rent subsidies. Grants for small business.
All kinds of other money for people. Hallelujah!

10:29pm: And all is quiet now. Everyone is gone and the dogs are napping.

How to Butcher a Kangaroo:

NOTE: Kangaroo meat is very lean and high in protein, essential B vitamins,
iron, zinc, omega-3 (an essential nutrient associated with fish),
and omega-6 fatty acids, and is very low in fat (only about 2%)
But the meat also has a high concentration of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA)
which has been associated with the build-up of arterial plaque,
and can lead to cardiovascular disease, heart attacks and strokes.
67232285_3182547408484770_8951960546475769856_o

Kangaroo was always eaten by the aboriginal Australians, and the
meaty tail, roasted in a pit of hot embers, is considered a delicacy down under.

Kangaroo Meat is illegal in the state of California!

Fried Rice with Minced Beef

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 rice
1 onion
1 sausage (I used Continental Frankfurt this time)
1 slice ham
6 mushrooms
1/2 cup green peas
3 eggs, whisked

Seasoning:
1 tablespoon light soy sauce
A pinch of black pepper, to your taste
salt, to your taste
sugar, to your taste

Method:
Blanch green peas in boiling water for 2 to 3 minutes. Drain and set aside.
Cut onion, sausage and ham into small cubes. Slice mushrooms.
Heat 2 tablespoons of cooking oil and sauté onion on medium-heat pan, add in mushrooms until tender. Put in green peas and sauté for 2 minutes. Set aside.
Heat pan on medium heat, sauté sausage and ham until light brown. Dish up.
Clean the pan with a piece of kitchen 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 all rice is evenly heated up and mixed well with the eggs, add in onion, green peas and mix well. At last, add the sausage and ham. While stirring all ingredients together, generously sprinkle salt, sugar and black pepper. Drizzle the soy sauce all around the rice and toss. Taste it by yourself. When you’re satisfied, it’s done.

Tips:
You can use whatever greens you like, for example capsicum, celery. Other meat, like chicken, shrimp, beef or BBQ pork can be good choice too.
If you preheat the chilled leftover rice in a microwave beforehand, it would shorten the cooking time. Save your energy~
Enjoy your fried rice!

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.

Bon Appetit!

It’s an exclamation!

A salutation for someone about to eat!

It means GOOD APPETITE in French.

ENJOY YOUR MEAL!

Listen and learn how to say Bon Appétit correctly:

NOTE: you shouldn’t be wishing guests “Bon Appétit”…..
the French phrase is actually highly impolite.

Merci! (Thank you in French) Bon Appetit!

King Cotton Blues

19844453544_bfae97c853_b

King Cotton Blues
Lyrics by Robert Hunter
Music by Malcolm Welbourne (Papa Mali), Bill Kreutzmann, Matt Hubbard
as performed by 7 Walkers

Got the king cotton blues, that I can’t deny
I’ve always been in trouble, but, I never did know why
Some say it’s my attitude, others said my luck
Those that said my just deserts can take a flying fuck

Got the king cotton blues, right down to my core
I can take the licking, boys, stand up and ask for more
It ain’t because of courage, on account of being brave
I never saw much reason to avoid an early grave

[Chorus:]
King cotton blues boys, be it understood
Shotgun is too merciful, hanging is too good
Drowning’s too uncertain, poison is too slow
To snuff a worthless widow’s son whose time has come to go

Got the king cotton blues, reason to complain
All the local prostitutes, spit upon my name
I take out my handkerchief, and dust that shit away
Revenge don’t bring relief, boys, no matter what they say

Got the king cotton blues, price upon my head
A thousand bucks alive, and double if I’m dead
They don’t want to have to feed me, they know my appetite
Let’s head down to the bar afar, and pick another fight

[Chorus]

Got the king cotton blues when shit hits the fan
No shame to duck, boys, any chance you can
Take your absolution, at the whorehouse down the block
For those who disavow you, can wind the devil’s clock

Got the king cotton blues, every dog knows the tune
Every cat has a version, beneath the brightful moon
Take your revolution, and stick it upper class
Be kind to one another, and dip your lights when you pass

[Chorus]

Got the king cotton blues, that’s all I got to say
They done locked up the keys, and threw the house away
I’m just buying my time ’til they pop my red balloon
Feed me to the tigers, throw my leg across the moon

[Chorus]

King Cotton Blues by 7 Walkers with Willie Nelson:

7 Walkers (2009-2012) featured former Grateful Dead drummer Bill Kreutzmann,

And now a little King Cotton history:

51ddD7gIZ0L

“‘King Cotton’ is a slogan that summarized the strategy used before the American Civil War (of 1861–1865) by pro-secessionists in the southern states (the future Confederate States of America) to claim the feasibility of secession and to prove there was no need to fear a war with the northern states.” – wikipedia

Cotton is a soft, fluffy staple fiber that grows in a boll,
or protective case, around the seeds of the cotton plants.

Genus: Gossyplum – family: malvaceae

India is the world’s largest producer of cotton.
The five leading exporters of cotton in 2019:
(1) India, (2) the United States, (3) China, (4) Brazil, and (5) Pakistan.

The invention of the cotton gin lowered the cost of production,
leading to greater profits, and the expansion of cotton farming and slavery.

SLAVERY AND SLAVE LABOR – The real hands that built America!
George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, James Monroe,
John Hancock, and many other “Founding Fathers” owned slaves.

August, 1619 –  First Slaves arrive in Jamestown, Virginia
20-30 enslaved Africans landed at Point Comfort
(now Fort Monroe in Hampton, Virginia)
Captain Jope and Mr. Marmaduke from the English warship ‘White Lion’
traded captives removed from the Portuguese slave ship, San Juan Bautista
to the Governor and Cape Merchant of Jamestown for food and supplies.

1662 – Slavery officially recognized as the statutory law of the colony.
Legislation passed to define the status of mixed-race (mulatto) children.
Children were considered the same status as their mother.
If the child was born to a slave, the child would be born a slave.

BLACKLIVESMATTER!
Acknowledge the history and legacy of slavery, the slave trade,
the failed reconstruction and post Civil War retaliation, sharecropping,
“The Great Migration”, the Klu Klux Klan, segregation, Jim Crow, and racism!

“Oh! Isn’t that a Dainty Dish to set before the King!”
by artist John McLenan (1827-1865)

This cartoon depicts General George B. McClellan delivering a live bombshell to the table of the British monarchy. The table top says “Virginia” while the body of it is made of cotton and the supports are “whiskey.” Standing nearby is Lord Palmerston pictured as a whiskey bottle (“Old Rye Prime Minister”). In the background is a slave atop a stack of cotton and a black servant commenting on the instabilty of the cotton stack. This is referencing Great Britiain’s policy of neutrality towards the American Civil War and the belief by many Northerners that it was merely a strategic position taken by the British to maximize their economic benefits. In reality, Palmerston viewed neutrality and the possible success of the Confederacy as lucrative economic possibilites for Great Britiain. This depiction is infering that McClellan and the Union Army will destroy the foundation of this economic plan (portrayed here as cotton) through their military successes.

The Triangular Trade in the 18th and 19th centuries:
Great Britain shipped goods to West Africa.
These goods were used to buy captured Africans.
The African slaves were shipped to the West Indies and the Americas
and exchanged for sugar, rum, and other goods.
And then these goods were shipped back to Great Britain.

“COTTON IS KING!”
unnamed


The “King Cotton” March was composed in 1895 by John Philip Sousa
for the Cotton States and International Exposition (1895).
