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

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

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

Screen Shot 2021-04-14 at 11.37.16

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

9:30pm: Recapping Friday Afternoon. 

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

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

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

We put in a load of laundry. We just published a Blog Post (Part 148).

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

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

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

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

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

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

Unknown

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

Denver is the capital and most populous city in Colorado.

GO BRONCOS!

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

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

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

National Licorice Day!


Tuesday, April 13, 2021 – DO NOT TRAVELTUESDAY!
National Scrabble Day!

Twelve

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

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

172769962_10224576911521370_3045784466664384620_n

4:45am: We made and ate some bacon. We drank another espresso.
We took the dog outside.

173742538_10157740898193204_6219012428884797848_n

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

Directions:

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

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

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

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

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

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

The dogs got fed. The dogs went outside.
We drank a double espresso to start the day. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.

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

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

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

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

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

OR

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

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

because it was cheap, and Disneyland was still closed.

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

1:45pm: Newspapers, mail, and a NAP. We woke up and made an iced espresso.
A surprise from the new King of the Fools via USPS! We had a feeling this was coming.

Happy Foolish Mail!
Boobie Prize for second place?
Look what came today!

Giggle, laugh, snort, smile.
Saturday afternoon fun and
foolishness too!

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

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

Sunday, April 11, 2021 – National Pet Day!

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

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

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

Sharing the pics we took, with you, here, right now.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Eggs Benedict & Hash Browns


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


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

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

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

Combination Fried Rice:

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

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

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

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

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


Ashley’s Easy Awesome Everyday Fried Chicken

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

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

Rachel Neff’s Killer Brownies – (Rachel Neff RIP)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Jelly Bean Shot

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

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

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

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

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

FLASHBACKFRIDAY!  August 2017

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

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

Yes, and it gets even better:
20622044_1916848801675010_660065434603765910_n

Cool? You can say that again!
20622128_1916856395007584_8853800012825920130_n

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

Los Angeles enters the COVID-19 “ORANGE” and reduces public health restrictions today.
The White House “Easter Egg Roll” was scheduled for today, Cancelled due to COVID-19.

FACEBOOK USER DATA LEAKED ONLINE (AGAIN) – from a 2019 hacker leak? FUCK!

The Los Angeles Stage Alliance (LASA) will “cease operations” after their Ovation Awards FAIL on March 30th.
More than two dozen local theatres withdrew their membership after “Hannah And The Dread Gazebo” star Jully Lee’s name was mispronounced, and a photo of someone else was used during the listing of nominees in her category! There were also multiple complaints about LASA’s rules for nomination and other “lack of inclusion” issues.
NOTE: We stand with BIPOC and the reform of “white American” theatre! Please only support inclusive theatre!

2:50am: We woke up just before midnight, and now it’s three hours later.
We took the dogs outside. We were watching YouTube vids and the TV is on.
But we were mainly working on our current Blog Posts in progress.
And we had to set this one up too.
We just ate the last piece of cold leftover pizza and drank a little fruit punch Gatorade.
Last night my sister had “city” sushi delivered for dinner. We only ate half of this.
On The Menu: “City Sushi” (with real crab), California roll, Rainbow roll w/shrimp,
and spicy tuna cut roll.

Day 3 of the vaccine. Very relieved to have the first dose.

There were  1602 new recorded confirmed cases in California on Sunday (April 4).
59700+ Reported COVID-19 DEATHS in California as of Monday (April 5).

FOURTH WAVE COMING! Spring Break and March Madness, People are being careless…..
GREED AND STUPIDITY. Too many people are traveling and not quarantining after.
Anyone watching the Las Vegas LiveStreams can see that people still aren’t taking precautions.
Too many people everywhere aren’t doing what’s necessary, and we are in Pandemic Year Two now.

WARNING! New “double mutant” COVID-19 variant from India discovered in California!
One of the new variant’s mutations is similar to one detected in the Brazil and South Africa variants,
and the other mutation is found in a variant first detected in California (West Coast variant).

4:44am: EARTHQUAKE!!!!!
We were awake and felt the 4.0 Earthquake near LAX and Inglewood in Lennox!
There was another one earlier at 4:15am measuring 3.3 that we didn’t feel.
And there was a smaller 2.5 aftershock afterwards. No damage or injuries. Thank you!

9:30am: We tried to sleep and got woken up at 7:00am. FUCK.
The dogs got fed. We tried to go back to bed. No luck.
We drank a cup of espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.
We just had a “password” problem and spent a little time fixing it.

10:15am: We just took the dogs outside. And it’s a beautiful day again!
Watching the local news and working on Blog Posts now.
The housekeeper is here to clean a clean house today
and we are self-isolating with the dogs in the Home Office.
She has been vaccinated. We have our first dose for three days now.
AND WE ARE STILL NOT GOING TO BE AROUND HER TO BE SAFE.
And we are hungry and kinda tired now….. so this morning can suck it.

11:35am: We were outside in the sun with the dogs for a little bit.

There was a long crazy pursuit in Riverside today.
Then the guy hit a semi-truck and it was all over. 2 suspects in custody.
The semi-truck sped up and cut them off! It was definitely intentional.
Screen Shot 2021-04-06 at 19.00.41
“The big rig truck driver, Ahmed Shabaan,
said he tried to end the dangerous pursuit by blocking the pickup truck’s path.”

And there was another one earlier in the day in Long Beach that we didn’t see,
but we watched the police takedown at the end when they pulled her from the car to make the arrest.
Screen Shot 2021-04-06 at 18.41.22

We ate pizza and fell asleep. And we just woke up a little before midnight.
And now it’s just after midnight, so it’s officially Wednesday morning.

2:45am: We just watched “The Last Blockbuster” documentary on Netflix.
(and that’s spelled I-R-O-N-I-C) It was really well done, with lots of celebrity interviews.
Lots of nostalgia for people our age who had the video store experience growing up.
We never liked Blockbuster and its corporate style and prices (or late fees),
so we always favored the small Mom & Pop video stores, the kind with the saloon doors,
that carried independent and underground films, and didn’t feed the corporate beast.
But we still have our laminated Blockbuster card somewhere.
And at least one “unreturned” tape, still with the Blockbuster box art.
We remember video store dates, with take out food, and a night on the couch,
and then watching a movie that didn’t get watched until the next day….
We still have VHS tapes (most in storage) and our DVD collection here in the home office,
in storage boxes, although they don’t get watched that often anymore. Too much stuff.
And we just took a break and ate some ice cream. Happy Wednesday.

Visit Bend, Oregon. We drove through Bend and central Oregon during the Eclipse trip to Madras and Prineville in 2017. What a fiasco! Read our previous Blog Post.

8:05am: We’re still awake. Tired but can’t sleep.
Going to be a beautiful day again, and it already is outside.
The dogs got fed and the newspapers were retrieved.
And we just made and drank a cup of espresso.
Drink Coffee. Drink Water. Drink Beer.

27067181_2105675222792366_387398299539152368_n

10:15am: We got nothing today. We should do something. F*CK.
We drank another cup of espresso and ate two slices of cold leftover pizza.
And now we are waiting for the postman. AND HE IS HERE NOW!
We got the mail and we took the dogs outside again.
And we’re all back in the Home Office chillin’ if you need to reach us.

5:15pm: Nothing happened today. Bullshit political shit.
More Trial of George Floyd (sorry, the Trial of Murderer Derek Chauvin),
BLACKLIVESMATTER! STOP POLICE BRUTALITY AND VIOLENCE!
STOP SYSTEMIC RACISM! STOP KILLING BLACK AND BROWN PEOPLE!

COVID-19 is the leading cause of death in the United States.
559000+ Reported Deaths in the United States from COVID-19
as of today.
AND THERE IS A FOURTH SURGE COMING AFTER SPRING BREAK!
“Health officials in the state of California are tracking at least SIX COVID-19 variants”

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

*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.

We took a nap. We took the dogs outside. We took the dogs outside again.
The dogs got fed. We took the dogs outside again.

And we didn’t want to get up this morning.
We got the newspapers and made a cup of espresso.
We took the dogs outside. The dogs got fed. We took the dogs outside.
We had the dogs in the Home Office for a little bit,
and now they’re napping in the bedroom.

91908739_3551577101535497_697758548662157312_n

We woke up around 3:00am with a headache,
and we made it go away and then went back to bed a couple hours later.

Fun stuff we did this week: (hanging with our dogs is the best thing)
We watched “The Last Cruise” documentary about the Diamond Princess
(Princess Cruise Lines = total failure to protect the passengers and crew)
and the COVID-19 outbreak onboard in February 2020 and onboard quarantine
and passenger evacuation and air transport to the United States, and the CREW.
And it uses footage shot by the passengers and crew during the cruise and crisis.

We walked to the bank and went inside yesterday,
while we were in the post-vaccine waiting period, and we talked to a bank teller.
(WE GOT OUR FIRST DOSE OF THE MODERNA VACCINE FINALLY!)

We started watching “Red Oaks” – very fun TV series to binge-watch.
We watched Doug Stanhope standup comedy specials – angry and weird comedy!
We were entertained by TV and the interweb as usual…..

11:01am: We still have a little headache and our shoulder still hurts.
We’ve just been taking it easy this morning, but we didn’t go back to bed.
Thinking it’s nap time now…. but we just made a cup of espresso.
We took the dogs outside and it’s a beautiful day! Again!
BUT… the gardeners are working the neighborhood, next door,
and on the backside, so there’s intermitten mower/blower noise all day Friday.

12:40pm: We took the dogs outside again, and now they’re napping.
We got the mail. We ate a toasted bagel with peanut butter and raspberry jam.
Might be nap time now….

3:50pm: We slept with the dogs. Short nap.
We took the dogs outside. We slept without the dogs.
Now we’re tired, and we’re awake again.

RABBIT! RABBIT!

4:05am: We fell asleep and woke up at 3:00am.
We just drank a cup of espresso and took the dogs outside.
Early AM and we are wide awake again.
Our shoulder is still sore to the touch,
and that seems to be the only lasting side-effect now that we slept.
We drank a lot of water to stay hydrated, and we did a lot of peeing yesterday.
There is a real sense of relief and we are less anxious today.
And we are not going to stop ZERO CONTACT. We need to do another month.
Get the second dose, and then wait two weeks, and then decide….
We are still trying to stay home and stay safe. Wear a mask of course.
Wash your filthy hands. Use rubbing alcohol to sanitize at home and in the car.

Don’t go to restaurants.
Do not go to movie theaters, musical performances, shopping malls,

Happy Easter Sunday! Hey look, itsadaPope!
Every network is broadcasting religious crap for Easter.
We were just reading about how the priests rape the nuns,
and force them to have abortions (a mortal sin) when they get them pregnant,
and the Catholic Church covers it up, and the priest keep on raping,
just like they covered up SICK CRIMES AGAINST CHILDREN FOR DECADES!

Want some candy? How about an Easter egg hunt now?
Get a 420 Bunny. Celebrate this weird ass sacred secular holiday today.
Eat some ham. Go to church. Wear a pretty hat. Not necessarily in that order.

7:40am: We fell asleep, and the dogs woke us up, and wouldn’t let us go back to sleep.
So we got up, we took them outside, the dogs got fed, the dogs went outside again.
We got the newspapers. We drank a cup of espresso. We are awake now.
DRINK COFFEE. DRINK WATER. We ate a toasted bagel with cream cheese too.

We took a nice hot shower. We made an iced espresso. We made breakfast/Sunday Brunch.
On The Menu: 2 eggs over medium, bacon, toasted bagel with cream cheese, dill pickle,
carrot sticks, celery with peanut butter, strawberries, and an iced espresso to drink.
169266252_4631553280204535_6765130087165973483_n

We ate. And then around 1:00pm, our beautiful day was over.
SOME PEOPLE SUCK. We tried to sleep.
Woke up and got some news that really made us angry again, but we didn’t react.
We went back to bed and tried to sleep a little. And we woke up again.
SOME PEOPLE TOTALLY SUCK. We are on repeat again. So tired of this.

There were sirens in the distance and the sounds of coyotes nearby outside.
And we almost went back to sleep, but the little boy wanted to go outside.
We took the dogs outside, we drank a cup of espresso and we ate a toasted bagel
with cream cheese and some strawberries. Drink Coffee. Drink Water. Eat Fruit.

NATIONAL BUNSEN BURNER DAY! Named after inventor Robert Bunsen, the gas burner is common piece of laboratory equipment invented around 1854 at the University of Heidelberg. It produces a single open gas flame used for heating, sterilization, and combustion. The fuel is natural gas (mainly methane) or another liquefied petroleum gas: propane, butane, or a mix. The gas to air ratio can be manually adjusted to control the intensity, temperature, and size of the flame. Based on the Venturi effect: the speed of the gas flow increases, and the pressure decreases when forced through the nozzle, causing an inward air flow through the lateral holes at the base of the vertical pipe (barrel) which allows for the flame control.

11:30am: The dogs got fed breakfast at 7:00am.They went outside on both sides.
We got the newspapers and drank an espresso. Then we fell asleep.
We woke up, took the dogs outside, drank a little orange juice and another espresso.
It’s beautiful day again! Sunny, warm, and the temp is in the 80s.

The gardener and pool guy came today and we just slept. We woke up around 6:00pm. We went outside with the dogs and fed the dogs and went outside again. We made a cup of espresso, which we left in the kitchen…. BRB.
Okay, we’re back with a fresh espresso. And we’re hungry now. Time for some food.

We partied with Andy, Skip, Jonnathon, Greg and Jack (Jacques) upstairs
and with a castle full of Fools for years. Until they tore it down to build condos.

10:15am: We didn’t sleep. We were up all night.
We watched TV and surfed the interweb. We tried to sleep. No luck.
And so we took the dogs outside at 7:00am and they got fed.
We got the newspapers and we took the dogs outside again.
Then we fell asleep. We only slept for a couple hours, but we needed it.
We just woke up, got the mail, and drank a cup of espresso.
And it’s ThrowbackThursday and April Fool’s Day! HAHAHAHAHA.

Just another day…
Oh, there is a baseball game.
Will they “choke” again?

And it’s OPENING DAY! (for Major League Baseball)
First game at 10:00am PST – Toronto Blue Jays v. New York Yankees
Every team is scheduled to play today!
And it’s going to be a regulation-length season too, that mean 162 games.
Los Angeles Dodgers at Colorado Rockies
The Dodgers won the (pandemic) World Series in 2020. –
AND THE BOYCOTT CONTINUES!
Arizona Diamondbacks at San Diego Padres – Pittsburgh Pirates at Chicago Cubs
Chicago White Sox v. Los Angeles Angels – Houston Astros v. Oakland Athletics
San Francisco Giants at Seattle Mariners
THE WASHINGTON NATIONALS v. NEW YORK METS WAS POSTPONED!
COVID-19 RELATED. But only one game…. Yeah, Baseball. We just don’t care.

Los-Angeles-Dodger-Stadium

Dodgers Stadium in Chavez Ravine, Los Angeles, a few years ago

Another new year
Three hundred sixty five days!
The future is here.


We’re awake every morning to feed the dogs around 7:00am,
and they get supper around 6:00pm. And then, fill in the blanks….
Working from the Home Office before the pandemic,
so up all night is not new for an “insomniac”.
Don’t eat very much during the day
(a bagel with cream cheese for breakfast or a late lunch)
and then a big meal for dinner when we get really hungry, usually late.
Drink espresso (hot and iced) all day – with no sugar, which is much better than soda.
Breakfast is easy! And the ingredients are always in the fridge ready to go.

“Cause I’m a picker. I’m a grinner, I’m a lover, and I’m a sinner.
I play my music in the sun.
I’m a joker, I’m a smoker, I’m a midnight toker.
I sure don’t want to hurt no one”

I can hear the owl.
Who, who, who are you it asks.
That’s a good question.

saint-stupid
All Hail St. Stupid! All Hail The Church of the Last Laugh!

The owl is calling,
From the dark and cold outside,
Winter is coming.

7:15pm: And our effin’ shoulder hurts.
We got our first shot of the Moderna vaccine today!
We were so anxious we didn’t sleep again last night.
And then we were really tired when we got home.
So we took a nap, of course. And we woke up and took the dogs outside.
And the dogs got fed dinner. And we went outside again.
And we made an ice-pack. AND NOW IT’S LEAKING COLD WATER ON US.
We are thankful we finally got it. We waited for our turn and now it hurts. 

8:55pm: Feeling “BLAH” – must be the vaccine. We ordered a pizza delivery.
We watched the first episode of “Ken Burn’s Baseball” on PBS while we waited.
We took the dogs outside again. And then we ate three slices of pizza.
Pizza every week is easy. And it’s really good pizza. Now there are leftovers
We still have to shop for food, but not tonight, and probably not tomorrow.
On The Menu: Extra-Large NY Style sausage and pepperoni pizza delivered.

Still “Safer-At-Home”
And one more Saturday night
Feelin’ so alone.

In-N-Out for lunch?
A double-double with cheese
Those are good burgers

Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin murdered George Floyd.
BLACKLIVESMATTER! Stop Police Brutality and Violence!

The First Amendment of the Constitution prohibits any law abridging freedom of speech, infringing on freedom of the press, interfering with right to peaceably assemble or prohibiting petitioning for a redress of grievances. (and there’s also something about religion too)

“Article I – Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” (The First Amendment)

The “FIVE D’s” of Bystander Intervention

The “FIVE D’s” of Bystander Intervention
What should you do if you witness someone being targeted with harassment because of their race, sex, religion, color, gender, size, sexual orientation, disability, age, or country of origin?

NOTE: The 5D’s were ripped from ihollaback.org – Thanks!

167432636_4615441121815751_6090503962932619310_n

The “FIVE D’s” of Bystander Intervention are:

Distract – ignore the harasser, engage directly with the person being targeted.
Don’t talk about or refer to the harassment. Talk about something unrelated.

Delegate – ask for assistance, for a resource, or for help from a third party
Check with the person being targeted before contacting 911!
The intervention of law enforcement may make some people uncomfortable.
Police may make the situation worse and/or make some people feel unsafe.

Document – Document harassment as it happens. BE A WITNESS.
Expose abuse, deter violence, substantiate reports, provide evidence.
Assess the situation first! Only document the situation if it is safe!
Is anyone helping the person being harassed?
If you are safe, record the incident safely and responsibly!
Stay safe, keep your distance. Say the date and time and what you are witnessing.
Record signs or landmarks the identify the location.
ALWAYS ask the person what they want to do with the recording.
Get CONSENT first! NEVER post or use media without the subject’s permission!

NOTE: Be sure to educate yourself on the LAWS in your city, county or state regarding filming and recording in public, and recording law enforcement in the performance of their duties.

Delay – make a difference by checking on the person who was harassed after the fact.
Wait until the situation is over and then speak to the person who was targeted.

  • Ask if they’re okay. Tell them you’re sorry that it happened to them.
  • Ask if there’s any way you can support them.“What do you need?”
  • Offer to walk with them to their destination or sit with them.
  • Share resources. Offer to be a witness and make a report if they want you to.
  • If you document the incident, ask what they want you to do with the recording.

Direct – directly respond by naming what is happening and/or confronting the harasser.
THERE IS RISK: Harasser may redirect abuse and it might escalate the situation.
Before responding directly, first assess the situation! Are you physically safe?
Is the person being harassed physically safe? Could the situation escalate to violence?
Does the person being harassed want someone to intervene and/or speak up?
Do not engage in dialogue, debate, or start an argument (the situation can escalate)
Keep your direct response short and on point:

  • “That’s inappropriate” “That’s disrespectful” “That’s not okay” etc.
  • “Leave them alone.”
  • “That’s homophobic” “That’s racist” “That’s (insert type of harassment)” etc.

Sunday, March 28, 2021 – Happy Passover!
Happy Holi! Happy Palm Sunday.
Happy Birthday Lady Gaga!
National Black Forest Cake Day!

Happy Holi! The ancient Hindu festival of Holi, is known as the “Festival of Love”, the “Festival of Colors”, and the “Festival of Spring”. The holiday celebrates the arrival of spring, the end of winter, the blossoming of love, and a good a spring harvest. Holi also celebrates the triumph of good over evil, symbolizes by the end of winter.

On this day in 1979, there was a major accident at Pennsylvania’s Three Mile Island nuclear power plant. Reactor number 2 overheated, suffered a partial meltdown, and then a radiation leak.

Today, the TMI-2 reactor is permanently shut down and 99% of its fuel has been removed. The reactor coolant system is fully drained and the radioactive water decontaminated and evaporated. The accident’s radioactive waste was shipped off site to an appropriate disposal area, and the reactor fuel and core debris was shipped to the Department of Energy’s Idaho National Laboratory. In 2001, FirstEnergy acquired TMI-2 from GPU. FirstEnergy has contracted the monitoring of TMI-2 to Exelon, the current owner and operator of TMI-1. The companies plan to keep the TMI-2 facility in long term, monitored storage until the TMI-1 plant ceases operations, at which time both plants will be decommissioned. – http://www.nrc.gov

On this day in 1986, “We Are The World” was played at the same time on radio stations everywhere. It was written/recorded in 1985 to raise money for African famine victims and was remade/rereleased in 2010 for victims of the earthquake in Haiti. The song saw a comeback in March 2020 after the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak. USA for Africa! 

We are the world, We are the children,
We are the ones who make a brighter day, so let’s start giving
There’s a choice we’re making, We’re saving our own lives,
It’s true we’ll make a better day, just you and me”

166550312_1864246020398947_4049856865267006200_o

4:30am: Just woke up. We took the dogs outside. We made a cup of espresso.
We also ate some strawberries and a chocolate macaroon.
There was a missed text message from earlier on our cell phone.
Terrible news. Our friend’s brother died. We don’t have any details.
But we are very sad now.

We watched two of Doug Stanhope’s comedy specials and then we
watched the Brody Stevens’ (RIP) comedy special on Amazon Prime last night.
We also went down the Youtube hole again and watched a bunch of vids.
brody22
Steven James Brody (May 22, 1970 – February 22, 2019)  known as Steven Brody Stevens, was a genius stand-up comedian, the “Prince of Periscope” and an actor who suffered from mental illness and sadly killed himself. We miss his weird and angry comedy.

8:20am: We fell asleep again. We woke up.
The dogs went outside. The dogs got fed. We drank a cup of espresso.

“Face masks, hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes and other PPE
are now tax deductible medical expenses, the IRS announced.”

12:50pm: Well, it’s a beautiful day! Sunday! Sunday! Springtime!

And we are Choreboy again today! Doing laundry! Cleaned out the fridge.
Cleaned up the kitchen a little. Did some dishes and pots and pans.

We just heated up the last of the leftover pizza from the other night
and ate it for lunch with some fruit punch gatorade to drink.

166058571_4607970559229474_3407127134154520218_o

10:00pm: Recapping Sunday!
Choreboy scooped a lot of poop, cleaned the yard, and did some more laundry.
We slept for awhile. We woke up and took the dogs outside.
And the dogs got fed supper and we took the dogs outside again.
We drank a cup of espresso and ate some leftover BBQ chicken pizza.
(we had to scrap the cilantro off, because we didn’t want it to go to waste)
We turned everything off and just enjoyed the silence for a couple hours.
We took the dogs outside again
and now we’re back chillin’ in the Home Office on Sunday night.
We also emptied the dishwasher and put away the dishes.
And we did another load of laundry.
Choreboy is not quite done, but he is done for now.

THE FOURTH WAVE IS HERE!
“THE SPRING BREAK SURGE” = COVID-19 Infection rates are rising again.
People are being careless. People aren’t wearing masks. People are STUPID.
We watched the Livestreams from Las Vegas this weekend,

And more businesses are continuing to “RE-OPEN”: Theme parks (Disneyland and Magic Mountain will re-open next week) and sporting events, restaurants and movie theaters, schools (LAUSD announced they will re-open for in-person teaching in April) and religious institutions.

COVID-19 is the leading cause of death in the United States…..

10:20am: The housekeeper is here to clean now.
We drank another espresso. We took the dogs outside.
We ate 2 toasted English muffins with peanut butter and raspberry jam.
We made an iced espresso. We have the dogs with us in the Home Office.
And it’s Monday morning again.

Do you have “A Case of the Mondays?” (read our previous Blog Post)

 11:30am: We got the mail.

4:40pm: Watching/listening to Josh Daniel and 420Live with Jeff Kravitz
at the same time. MSNBC on TV with the sound off.

Celebrating Life Everyday! 420Live with guest Andrew DeAngelo.
We drank another iced espresso. We took the dogs outside a couple times.
The housekeeper finished about 2:00pm. The house is clean.
We slept a little while she was here….. and when we woke up, she was gone.
And we might be hungry.

The container ship EverGiven that was blocking the Suez Canal was freed today.
Cargo ships are sailing through it again, there’s a massive backup that needs to clear,
and there will be toilet paper (and other imported products) for April and May.

Recapping Monday at 2:00am on Tuesday morning.
The dogs got fed and went outside. We fell asleep. We woke up.
We took the dogs outside. We watched TV and surfed the interweb.
We took the dogs outside again. We ate some food.

On The Menu: Toasted bagel with cream cheese, two kinds of salami, pepper jack cheese, dill pickle, avocado, celery & carrot sticks, sour cream & onion potato chips, and strawberries

We fell asleep for an hour, woke up, and took the dogs outside again.
Now the dogs are sleeping in the Home Office.
And now it’s Tuesday. Maybe we had a case of the Mondays yesterday.

NATIONAL DOCTORS’ DAY! – has some extra-special meaning this year!
The first observance of Doctors Day was on March 30, 1933, in Winder, Georgia.
On this day in 1842, Ether was first used as an anesthetic for surgery and was administered by Crawford W. Long, M.D. A red carnation is worn as the symbol for National Doctors Day.

97355017_10163569631520298_108194095951773696_n

Some people shouldn’t be Doctors. Some people should be in prison.
The Trump stooges now admit they failed, and that they lied for Trump.
They sacrificed American Lives for politics over human life. 
They violated the Hippocratic Oath. THEY DID HARM! PEOPLE DIED! 
They should never practice medicine again. Take their licenses away!
HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF US CITIZENS ARE DEAD BECAUSE OF THEM!
550000+ REPORTED COVID-19 DEATHS IN THE 
UNITED STATES!
FIVE HUNDRED FIFTY THOUSAND PLUS DEAD AMERICANS AS OF TODAY!
59000+ REPORTED COVID-19 DEATHS IN CALIFORNIA!

2:45am: We’re awake. We just made an iced espresso. We are so BORED.
Last night we watched the coyotes frolic on the neighbor’s lawn across the street.
We put on “Avengers, Age of Ultron”, but we’re going to stop it and start it over.
Just not now.

On this day in 1981, President Ronald Reagan, James Brady, and
two other people were shot and wounded by John Hinkley Jr. in Washington D.C.

7:50am: Good morning. Tuesday. Yeah, we’re up.
The dogs went outside. The dogs got fed. The dogs went outside.
We got the newspapers. We drank a cup of espresso. Tuesday.
Drink coffee. Drink water.  DRINK COFFEE. DRINK WATER.

11:40am: We took the dogs outside again. We got the mail.
We have to go the bank and we should go to the market too.
But we don’t want to go out unless we absolutely have to…..
And the bank can wait and we have food to eat today and tomorrow,
so, we’ll stay home and stay safe and social distance and self-isolate.
It’s a beautiful day. The temp should reach 80 degrees in the SFV today.

Universal Studios Hollywood announced that they will re-open April 16. 
Penn & Teller’s show will return to the Rio Hotel in Las Vegas on April 22. 
Many shows (stage, lounge, and comedy) have already resumed in Las Vegas
(with reduced audience capacity and/or in a larger venue/space). 

Carnival, MSC, Royal Caribbean, and Disney Cruise Line are now offering short Summer Cruises with June and July departure bookings out of Florida despite the “do not sail” order from the CDC. There will be mandatory COVID-19 “proof of vaccination” requirements.
DO NOT TRAVEL! – STAY HOME! STAY HEALTHY! – ZERO CONTACT! – NO CRUISING!

5:05pm: Well, we took a nap. We needed to sleep a little.
We didn’t go to the bank or the market, or do any errands today.
We watched some of the Derek Chauvin George Floyd Murder Trial.
We woke up and took the dogs outside. We made an iced espresso.
Almost time to feed the dogs their supper. Still a beautiful day outside.

11:20pm: The dogs went outside. The dogs got fed. The dogs went outside.
We cooked, we made dinner. We fell asleep for a little bit.
And we just updated this Blog Post.

On The Menu: Bone-in Ribeye steak with sautéed onions,

We now have an appointment date and time for our first vaccination!
We waited for our turn, and we’ve been scheduled, fingers crossed now.
Only 25% of Californians in the 50-64 age range have been vaccinated so far….

*FULLY VACCINATED means TWO WEEKS after the second dose! 

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

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

Going to the end of the line?

“Therefore hell hath enlarged herself,
and opened her mouth without measure:
and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp,
and he that rejoiceth, shall descend into it.”

– Isaiah 5.14
