Do Not TravelTuesday! StayTheFuckHome!

“O Oysters,” said the Carpenter. “You’ve had a pleasant run!
Shall we be trotting home again?”
But answer came there none —
And that was scarcely odd, because they’d eaten every one.”

Hangin’ with the dogs in the Home Office.

A SPECIAL NOTE: DON’T STOP SOCIAL DISTANCING!
IF YOU THINK WE ARE GOING TO PUT OURSELF INTO A CONFINED SPACE

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

240725930_4234833546599618_2166672109154565717_n

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZ

12:50pm: okay, it’s ThrowbackThursday. And it’s almost 1:00pm.
We are chillin’ with the dogs in the Home Office. So let’s recap today.
We slept for a little bit. We woke up late. The dogs went outside. 
The dogs got fed. The newspapers got got. We got the mail.
We took the dogs outside. We made an iced espresso.
We put on pants, to go do more errands, but then we took them off.
The housekeeper is here, should we be worried about the Delta Virus?
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.

Friday, August 20, 2021  – World Mosquito Day
National Radio Day!
(“Testing, testing.”)

228841029_2066128753525990_3113137168686043679_n
Raise awareness about illness and disease caused by mosquitos!
Mosquitoes cause more death & disease than any other animal on the planet!
 
Malaria, Dengue, Yellow Fever, Japanese Encephalitis, West Nile Chickungunya, Kunjin Jamestown Canyon Virus, Zika, Venezuelan Equine Encephalitis, St Loius Encephalitis, Pogostra Disease, Ross River Virus, Lymphatic Filariasis, Eastern Equine Encephalitis, Murray Valley Encephalitis, Rift Valley Fever, Lacrosse Encephalitis, and the list goes on.
On this day in 1897, Sir Ronald Ross discovered the malaria parasite
in the stomach tissue of a female Anopheles mosquito.

“what a long, strange trip it’s been”

7:20am: We got a pursuit on the 605 Freeway this morning! 
Guy hit 120mph. The chase didn’t last long.
He got off the freeway and drove down a cul-de-sac,
foot-bailed and ran through a couple backyards, jumping fences,
and out onto another cul-de-sac where he ran into the police.
He surrendered. Suspect in custody.

We took the dogs outside. And now we have to do the morning stuff.
We’re already running late today, and we really don’t have anything to do.

On this day in 1920, the first commercial radio station,
8MK (now WWJ), began operating in Detroit!
And the National Football League (NFL) is organized as the
American Professional Football Conference in Canton, Ohio!

Breaking Entertainment News! What is “You Ain’t Got No Job?”
Screen Shot 2021-08-11 at 15.45.14
Mike Richards resigned this morning as “Jeopardy” host after one day of production, and currently remains Executive Producer. The ADL is calling for an investigation into Richard’s past remarks about Jews, women, and Asians, as well as his involvement with “The Price Is Right” sexual harassment history. Sony Pictures Television has cancelled production, until a new Host decision can be made.

11:10am: Watching President Joe Biden’s press conference on Afghanistan.
Joe just gave them the soundbite. “The buck stops here, it was my decision”
TOTAL FAIL. And this press conference is a TOTAL FAIL too.
MORE DISTRACTION FROM THE TRUMP AND THE GOP TRAITORS.
AND WTF? NO MAKEUP? AND DON’T LET JOE BIDEN GO OFF SCRIPT!

We took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs. We took the dogs outside.
We drank a double iced espresso. We ate a toasted bagel with cream cheese.
We got busy in the kitchen for a little bit. Makin’ Bacon:

And we took the dogs outside again.
The exterminator was here.
They were barking like good watchdogs.
And the roofers are almost finished across the street.
It’s a beautiful day. We were going to run errands…..
But now we’re chillin’ in the Home Office again. 

TravelAlert-614x201

Bad weather? Missed Flight? Travel Emergency? COVID-19?

TRAVEL ALERT!
American Airlines extends alcohol ban in Coach class into 2022.
And Southwest Airlines still has an alcohol ban in place.
SOUTHWEST AIRLINES APOLOGIZED TODAY FOR
SCHEDULE CHANGES AND CANCELLATIONS LAST WEEK. HAHAHAHA!
We’re laughing because it’s ridiculous to apologize for TOTAL FAILURE.

The US extended the ban on non-essential travel to Canada until September 21.
And so the US-Canada Border remains closed to travelers for the near future.

HURRICANE HENRI (Category 1) IS ON THE EAST COAST!
Going to suck in New England, so don’t go there.

COVID-19 ANXIETY RISING IN THE US DUE TO DELTA VARIANT SURGE.
Hospital ICUs in Alabama are at 100%. Major outbreaks in southern states.
Texas hospitals are overwhelmed too. 

Los Angeles and Orange County are sending kids back-to-school in classrooms.
WTF? THERE IS NO REAL EFFORT TO STOP THE VIRUS FROM SPREADING!

Fun Fact:
The Kilauea Volcano adds 42 acres to the Big Island Hawaii every year!

12:15pm: It’s Friday Afternoon.

NOTE: We got dressed and ready to go run our errands
and then got hit by the “Friday Fuckits”…. and we didn’t do anything.
None of our errands was urgent except the going to the market to get food.
But we got some food for tonight, and the market is open until ~1:00am.
We got undressed again and spent the afternoon with the dogs.

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZ (nappy time)

6:20pm: We woke up. We made a double iced espresso.
We ate another toasted bagel with cream cheese.
We prepped the dogs’ supper. Now it’s time to feed the dogs.

7:05pm: We took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs.
We took the dogs outside. Supper+snacks+carrot = Happy Pups!
We drank that double iced espresso down. Now it’s Friday night.
Another week – HOT SUMMER DAYS and COVID-19. This sucks.
We are so unmotivated right now…. almost nothing matters.
DON’T GET SICK. DON’T DIE. (StayTheFuckHome!)

8:30pm: Friday night. Nothing happening.
Just listening/watching LIVE MUSIC this evening.

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZZZ NappyTime with the Dogs.

4:20pm: We took a nap with the dogs. We woke up. We made an iced espresso.
We worked on this Blog Post.
We watched a few episodes of “Fluffy’s Food Adventures” on Amazon Prime.
Gabriel Iglesias is hilarious. And they eat a whole lot of great food.

On this day in 1911, the Mona Lisa (painted by Leonardo da Vinci) was stolen from the
Louvre Museum by three Italian handymen; it was not recovered until 1913.

9:45pm: And Saturday night. Recapping Saturday evening.
We ordered dinner. We got dressed and drove over to pick it up.
We drove home and ate dinner. The dogs went outside. The dogs got fed.

On The Menu: CPK (California Pizza Kitchen) takeout.
BBQ Chicken salad w/avocado (full size), and a Hawaiian pizza w/pepperoni, no ham.
And cran-raspberry-orange juice to drink. And then another iced espresso.
We ate the salad at 7:00pm and saved the pizza for later tonight.

First, Don’t try to order online. The website is a mess. We telephoned the order in.
But we got sent to a voice message system…. high volume, long wait.
So, we called the other restaurant too, and it was the same deal.
and then chose the option to have them call us back.
So, someone called us back, from a third party service, not the restaurant. 
and they took our order and then placed our order with the restaurant. WTF?
We joined the CPK Rewards Card too. So, we should be getting a BONUS too.
And we want to make sure we get credited reward points for this order.
And all we wanted was dinner. SO COMPLICATED. Technology is not your friend.

FUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCK
And of course, it’s National Senior Citizens Day too.

Dinner was good. 
We watched TV, we surfed the internet, we worked on this Blog Post,
and we watched YouTube vids and Livestreams! Fun. Fun. Fun.

There was a Saturday backyard party on the corner of our street with
loud electronic dance music that started around sunset and didn’t end until after 1:00am.
WOMP. WOMP. WOMP. WOMP. All night. Happy birthday. 

NOTE: Last night at Citifield in Chicago at the Dead&Co. show, during Intermission.
a wasted fan tried to do a flip on the upper deck, fucked up, and fell to his death. RIP

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

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!

CELEBRATE THE LIFE AND MUSIC OF JERRY GARCIA!

ComplimentsOfGarcia_Cover-360x360

First LIVE performance of “So Many Roads”:
February 22, 1992, at the Oakland Coliseum Arena.

Thought I heard a blackbird singing
Up on Bluebird Hill
Call me a whinin’ boy if you will
Born where the sun don’t shine
And I don’t deny my name
Got no place to go, ain’t that a shame?
“So Many Roads” by the Grateful Dead
written by Jerry Garcia and Robert Hunter

Grateful Dead – “So Many Roads”
From the last Grateful Dead concert: – July 9, 1995, at Soldier Field in Chicago, Illinois

8:30am: And TGIFriday! It’s Friday!
We were up all morning long, and we laid down after sunrise.
And then the dogs were awake and barking.
The dogs went outside. The dogs got fed. 
We drank a cup of espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.
We just published Part One of “The Days Between” Blog Posts.
We worked on future Blog Posts this morning too.
But TRAVEL MUST WAIT AGAIN, so we are in LIMBO right now.
There are ROOFERS on our street, and they start too early.
They are replacing the wood shake roof across the street this week.
(Can’t even imagine how HOT it must be up there in August!)

Today’s SECRET WORD is HELP:

-make it easier by offering one’s services/resources
-serve someone with (food or drink)
-improve (a situation or problem); be of benefit to
-aid, assist, improve, remedy, support
-the act of helping someone to do something; assistance
-a person or thing that helps, a domestic employee
-giving assistance to
-an appeal for urgent assistance
– a song title and the fifth studio album by the Beatles

The Beatles’ “HELP!” was released on August 6th, 1965.
(WOW! We did not know that, and that’s a really weird coincidence!)

10:55am: We made another iced espresso.
Watching TV: “Flight of the Conchords” in concert on HBO.
+Surfing the interweb, and working on this Blog Post for a couple hours.
12:00Noon: We did a little dog grooming, and brushed out all the dogs.
We do a little bit everyday of course, but they all got brushed this morning.
We took them outside and now they are happy in the kitchen.
And we might be hungry.

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.


It’s HIROSHIMA DAY! (aka “A-BOMB DAY”)
The anniversary of the first World War II Atomic Bomb attack on Japan.
Hiroshima Heiwa Kinen Kōen is a public park in the center of Hiroshima, Japan. It is a memorial dedicated to the first city to suffer a nuclear attack, the memory of the victims (as many as 140000), and to WORLD PEACE. Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park is visited by more than one million people every year. The annual August 6th Peace Memorial Ceremony is sponsored by the city of Hiroshima.

Old_and_New
The A-Bomb Dome is the former Hiroshima Prefectural Industrial Promotion Hall.
The building is the nearest building to the bombing that remained partially standing.
It’s now another memorial to the August 6th, 1945, 8:15am nuclear explosion.

“the Peace Memorial Ceremony has never once been cancelled since the Cenotaph for the A-Bomb Victims was built in Peace Memorial Park in 1952, the Peace Memorial Ceremony will be held this year in a similar manner as last year with strict COVID-19 infection prevention measures.”

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.

10:22pm: Recapping Friday afternoon. We made some lunch.
TV, interweb, YouTube, podcasts. We were mildly entertained.
We fell asleep with the dog and slept.
We woke up and then we went back to bed and slept some more.

On The Menu: Fried chicken breast, quesadilla with salsa verde,
and a dill pickle. With an iced espresso to drink.
227437503_5008893289137197_4831300652529456337_n

We woke up again. The dogs got fed and went outside.
We made and ate some dinner at 10:00pm. GOOD SHABBOS!

On The Menu: Double helping of Mama’s homemade lasagna. And a coke.
231355869_5009152722444587_2240948615979712812_n

NOTE: We were invited to Friday night dinner again.
We don’t feel it is safe to eat and party
with people not inside your bubble again….
WE DON’T KNOW: WHO IS FULLY VACCINATED?
WE DON’T KNOW: WHO IS INFECTED AND CONTAGIOUS?
Is it really safe to party indoors with people who are vaccinated? 
Do you know where they’ve been and who’ve they’ve contacted?
Are they being honest about their status and contacts?
So, we didn’t go the party and we ate our dinner alone.
And then we had a little dessert.

On The Menu: Chocolate Cake from Benes Bakery with Haagen-Daas
vanilla ice cream, Hershey’s chocolate syrup, and whipped cream229426016_5009305815762611_3786892256874291047_n

Thought I heard that KC whistle
Moaning sweet and low
Thought I heard that KC when she blow
Down where the sun don’t shine
Underneath the Kokomo
Whinin’ boy got no place to go

Passengers have been left stranded at airports across the country for days.

We drank a cup of espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.

8:00am: We took the dog outside again. Now it’s nappy time for the dogs.

Today is the midpoint of Summer in the Northern Hemisphere
and Winter in the Southern Hemisphere.

9:10am: The gardeners are here.
They’re going to work in the backyard today.
We did a little dog grooming. And we thought about some food.
But we don’t know what we want to eat right now.
And we’ve had our coffee already, and we don’t want to drink more right now.

10:00am: Okay, we made an iced espresso. Still no food.
We’re chilling’ in the Home Office with the dog again.

Thought I heard that KC whistle
Moaning sweet and low
Thought I heard that KC when she blow
Down where the sun don’t shine
Underneath the Kokomo
Whinin’ boy got no place to go

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZ

12:25pm: We woke up and took the dogs outside.
We ate some food. Then we fell asleep again.
On The Menu: Leftover lasagna for lunch

7:30pm: We woke up again. Crashed hard. 
And the gardeners were just finishing up in the backyard for the day.
It’s Saturday night. We got the dogs. The dogs got fed.
The dogs went outside. Now we’re chillin’ in the Home Office again.
BORING. So BORING.
We put on some music and the dogs are napping now.

8:40pm: ONE MORE SATURDAY NIGHT.

So many roads, I tell you
So many roads I know
So many roads, so many roads
Mountain high, river wide
So many roads to ride
So many roads, so many roads

Recapping Saturday night. We worked on our future Blog Posts.
We watched TV, surfed the interweb, watched YouTube vids and livestreams, 
and we were entertained, occupied, and distracted into the early AM hours.

Criminal Complaint filed against New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.
Sexual harassment and retaliation? The Democrats are giving him up.
Albany, NY Police press conference today. Not good for him.
The NY Attorney General’s press conference was also not good for him.
THIS IS JUST MORE GOOD MEDIA DISTRACTION
FROM TRUMP AND THE GOP TRAITOR’S TREASON!

The Senate is meeting today to vote on the “Bi-Partisan” Infrastructure Bill.
And 700000 Bikers are still gathering in Sturgis, South Dakota, this week!
They didn’t learn their lesson from last year, of course.
YES, PEOPLE ARE REALLY GREEDY AND STUPID.

THE NEW LAMBDA VARIANT IS SPREADING IN THE UNITED STATES!
“highly infectious, may also be able to evade vaccine antibodies”

The SARS-CoV-2 Lambda variant, also known as lineage C.37, is a variant of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. It was first detected in Peru in December 2020. On 14 June 2021, the World Health Organization named it Lambda variant and designated it as a variant of interest – wikipedia

Investigators in Chile conclude that the lambda COVID-19 variant is not only more infectious than standard SARS-CoV-2, but could also possibly shrug off vaccines. The first case in the United States has been spotted at Houston Methodist Hospital. – July 30, 2021

120000 New COVID-19 Cases in the United States yesterday.
The highest daily number in six months! Delta Variant is spreading fast.
619900+ Reported US DEATHS from COVID-19 as of this morning!
Hospitalizations are rising. Children are being infected.
And so, LET’S SEND THE KIDS BACK-To-SCHOOL. WTF?
Deaths are increasing again. The unvaccinated are dying.
And so, LET’S REMOVE MASK MANDATES and RESTRICTIONS. WTF?
And only 50% of the US population is Fully Vaccinated.
And so, WTF? Are they just waiting for the vaccine-resistant variant?
WE WANT TO GO OUT! WE WANT TO TRAVEL! WE DON’T WANT TO WORRY!
WHO THE FUCK IS IN CHARGE OF THE PANDEMIC RESPONSE?
WHY ISN’T THERE A NATIONAL EMERGENCY MANDATE?
WHY AREN’T THERE DOMESTIC TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS?
quarantine-flag-300x200
THERE NEEDS TO BE A 40 DAY TOTAL SHUTDOWN.
QUARANTINE EVERYONE, EVERYWHERE, except for actual essential workers.
NATIONAL GUARD/LAW ENFORCEMENT if necessary to enforce the shutdown.
REQUIRE EVERYONE GET VACCINATED IF THEY WANT TO GO OUT IN PUBLIC.
EVERYONE. And Rapid Testing for EVERYONE EVERY WEEK until it is eradicated.
ARREST AND PROSECUTE ANYONE SPREADING MISINFORMATION AND LIES!

The Delta Variant is VERY CONTAGIOUS and it might kill you.
4,304,980 Reported Deaths from COVID-19 Worldwide!
(the actual number is much higher)
COVID-19 is currently affecting 220 countries and territories.

104825102_10157872196359094_2045855313057625377_n
If it was just the “vaccine-deniers” that were dying, that would be okay.
THEY ARE THE ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE AND THE STATE NOW!
Hospitals should refuse to accept patients who have not been fully vaccinated.
The unvaccinated should be restricted from ALL PUBLIC SPACES.
Masks that cover the nose and mouth should be required EVERYWHERE.

Thought I heard a jug band playin’
If you don’t who else will?
From over on the far side of the hill
All I know the sun don’t shine
And the rain refused to fall
And you don’t seem to hear me when I call

7:15am: SUNDAY! SUNDAY! Sunday morning. And we’re awake early.
We drank a cup of espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.

8:05am: We fed the dogs. We took the dogs outside.

9:10pm: We fell asleep and really slept.
The dogs went outside. The dogs got fed.
We woke up and thought it was morning, but it was actually sunset.
Wait, it’s Sunday night. We took a shower. We made an iced coffee.

10:15pm: We drank our iced coffee. We played with and groomed the dog.
We haven’t eaten since Brunch, so we’re thinking about food again now.

BOB and JER

Wind inside and the wind outside
Tangled in the window blind
Tell me why you treat me so unkind
Down where the sun don’t shine
Lonely and I call your name
No place left to go, ain’t that a shame?

Jerry Garcia

So many roads, I tell you
New York to San Francisco
So many roads I know
All I want is one to take me home
From the high road to the low
So many roads I know
So many roads, so many roads

1:20am: And we still haven’t eaten yet. 
Time to watch “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver” on HBO.

The Olympics are over? Yeah, we gave up on NBC last week.
FUCK RUSSIA! Fuck Vladimir Putin! FUCK MOSCOWMITCH!
FUCK THE RUSSIAN OLYMPIC COMMITTEE!
AND FUCK THE INTERNATIONAL OLYMPIC COMMITTEE TOO!

Sleep in the stars, don’t you cry, dry your eyes on the wind.”

9:15am: We woke up very early, but didn’t really sleep at all.
We took the dog outside. The dogs went outside.
The dogs got fed. We made and drank an iced espresso.
We ate a piece of leftover lasagna for breakfast.
We watched “Tom Clancy’s Without Remorse” on Amazon Prime.

And it’s Monday morning. 
The roofers are working across the street again today.
They arrived at 6:45am and started at 7:00am….

The gardener came and worked in the backyard all afternoon.
Making a change to the landscaping and the “rock garden”.
So we had the dogs in the Home Office all afternoon too.
The dogs went outside. The dogs got fed.
And we fell asleep again. 

Recapping Monday night on Tuesday morning again.
We woke up and made dinner. NO SALAD TONIGHT.
On The Menu: Toasted bagel with lox and cream cheese, dill pickle,

DONALD TRUMP AND THE GOP TRAITORS REMAIN
A CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER TO THE WORLD in Summer of 2021!

THE GOP TRAITORS ARE LYING TO YOU!
DON’T BELIEVE THEIR LIES!
YOU KNOW WHAT REALLY HAPPENED!
YOU SAW IT WITH YOUR OWN EYES!

SEVEN MONTHS AGO, TRUMP AND THE GOP TRAITORS
TRIED TO OVERTHROW THE GOVERNMENT OF THE UNITED STATES! 

Breaking News from the State Department: (Why isn’t Mike Pompeo in prison?)
A $5,800 bottle of Japanese whiskey gifted to former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo by the government of Japan in 2019 is missing. Pompeo said he never received the bottle of whiskey and had no idea it was missing, or what happened to the gift. Pompeo’s lawyer, William Burck, told the Wall Street Journal that the former secretary of state had “no recollection of receiving the bottle of whiskey and does not have any knowledge of what happened to it.”
Earlier this year, the State Department’s independent watchdog group, Project on Government Oversight, found that GOP Traitor and Trump stooge Pompeo and his wife Susan “violated federal ethics rules by making over 100 personal, non-work related requests to department employees” (including ordering gifts, booking salon appointments, and taking care of their family dog).

FIRE AND ARREST TRUMP STOOGE
AND GOP TRAITOR LOUIS DEJOY NOW!

The nine days from August 1st to 9th, are known as “The Days Between”

Jerry Garcia’s Hand – UC Santa Cruz McHenry Library – Grateful Dead Special Collection

First LIVE performance of “The Days Between”:
February 22, 1993, at the Oakland Alameda Coliseum.

There were days
And there were days
And there were days between
Summer flies and August dies
And the world grows dark and mean
Comes the shimmer of the moon
On black infested trees
The singing man is at his song
The holy on their knees
The reckless are out wrecking
The timid plead their pleas
And no one knows much more of this
Than anyone can see, anyone can see
– “The Days Between” by Jerry Garcia and Robert Hunter
 


Monday, August 2, 2021 – It’s the 214th day of the year!

mktplmonpromo

NOTE: The TSA reported more than 2.2Million travelers at US Airports
on Sunday, the highest number since the start of the CoronaVirus pandemic.

1:30am: We just finished recapping Sunday night and (we just published)
our previous Blog Post “CV! Part 188 – Happy Jerry Day!”
And we just outlined and set up this Blog Post too.
Time for breakfast for dinner at 2:00am again.

4:20am: We still haven’t eaten dinner…. now it’s breakfast.
We’ve been working on a couple new Blog Posts and we got caught up.
Now we are going to the kitchen and we are going to do some cooking.

There were days
There were days
And there were days besides
When phantom ships with phantom sails
Set to sea on phantom tides
Comes the lightning of the sun
On bright unfocused eyes
The blue of yet another day
A springtime wet with sighs
A lonesome candle lingers
In the land of lullabies
Where headless horsemen vanish
With wild and lonely cries, lonely cries
 

8:15am: We finally made and ate some food around 6:00am.
We hope you’ll read the future Blog Posts we were working on last night.
We drank another iced espresso. We took the dogs outside.
We fed the dogs. We took the dogs outside.
And we got the newspapers. We still haven’t slept.

On The Menu: 3 eggs over medium, bacon, avocado,
watermelon, dill pickle, and a quesadilla with salsa verde
229033140_4994993567193836_6470418117063646781_n

9:05am: MONDAY MORNING PURSUIT! We were watching for 4 minutes…..
9:09am: The Suspect stopped and surrendered, and now the Suspect is in custody.

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ. Crashed Hard.

2:05pm: We waited for the housekeeper to arrive, we got the mail,
then we went to bed with the dogs and we slept until about 2:00pm.
We took the dogs outside after the housekeeper finished.

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.

7:15pm: We slept some more. Another afternoon nap. It was nice.
We woke up. We drank an iced espresso. The dogs went outside and got fed.

USA! USA! USA! GO TEAM USA! TOKYO 2020 OLYMPICS!
And we were watching the Tokyo 2020 2021 Olympics again.
NBCs coverage totally SUCKS. (and they have a tie-in with Snapchat? WTF?)
Have no idea what event we are watching or who the players are.
NBC thinks that we care about athletes who we don’t even know…..
IT’S AN INTERNATIONAL SPORTS COMPETITION (not just about USA athletes).
AND SO MANY FUCKING COMMERCIALS! It’s just about the advertising now.
And currently they are running the Women’s 400m Hurdles in a MONSOON!
It’s pouring rain on the outdoor Track and Field events.
And we are not entertained, so it’s time to change the channel.

9:25pm: We took the dog outside. We played with the dog.
We watched some public television (not the sh*tty Olympic coverage)
and we worked on this and our other new Blog Posts.
We just put the dog in the bedroom and now it’s time for our dinner.

It’s National Watermelon Day!

7:10am: Tuesday morning. We just woke up.
Watched the end of an early morning pursuit. 
They stopped and surrendered. Two suspects in custody.
231905249_4997995413560318_3027405380708839971_n
The dogs went outside. The dogs got fed.
We made and drank our first cup of espresso of the day.
Drink Coffee. Drink Water. Eat Watermelon.

98329551_177077100425073_3068049784125259776_n copy

8:10am: The CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC is all over the news this morning.
Are you Fully Vaccinated*? GET VACCINATED NOW if you haven’t yet!

*FULLY VACCINATED means TWO WEEKS after the second dose! 
You are not Fully Vaccinated after the first dose!
You are not Fully Vaccinated until TWO WEEKS AFTER THE SECOND DOSE!

10:35am: We made another cup of espresso. We got the mail.

12:00Noon: We took the dogs outside. It’s HOT and it’s going to get HOTTER.
We are chillin’ with the dogs in the Home Office and thinking about food.
And we watched too much “news” this morning.

12:40pm: And we made another iced espresso.
Time for a some Olympics. And also time for some lunch.

1:30pm: Olympic Basketball on NBC!
Spain (España) v. United States of America (USA) 
USA wins 95-81….. the game was over 14 HOURS AGO. “Spoiler Alert”
Way to go NBC. Watching the 2nd Quarter now. But GAME OVER.

A short Mini-Rant because this has been bugging us all morning:
KTLA channel 5 in Los Angeles was also warning “Spoiler Alert” this morning.
Mentally challenged US gymnast Simone Biles won the bronze medal for
the individual balance beam event after withdrawing from other events.
BUT if the news anchor says “Spoiler Alert”
and the inset photo is Simone Biles
holding a medal, and the caption reads: 
SIMONE BILES WINS BRONZE!
It is pretty much a “SPOILER” instead of a “Spoiler Alert”, right? 

231041779_4999786573381202_6118702508826977007_n

8:05pm: Recapping Tuesday afternoon. It was fuckin’ HOT.
We got dressed and went out and got lunch “to go” at The Stand.
We didn’t eat dinner last night, and we only ate a dill pickle this morning.
We brought the food home and ate. Then we fell asleep.
On The Menu: ABC Burger (avocado, bacon, cheese), fries, and a chocolate shake.
233106338_4999786393381220_4468523158237042356_n
Read our previous Blog Post “Dinner at The Stand in Encino” from 2016!
We paid $24 and change for this lunch and it was okay, not great.
We should have gotten a burger at The Habit Grill a few blocks away,
it would have cost half of what we paid, and been better.
Also, the interior of the restaurant is not COVID-19 safe. 
TOO MANY PEOPLE TOO CLOSE TOGETHER AT THE REGISTER AREA!
We were very uncomfortable while we were inside with so many people.

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.

There was a pursuit yesterday, the guy got sideways and then kept going! Then he pulled over and surrendered. And there was a pursuit this morning, they stopped and surrendered. And then there was just another pursuit. She tried to escape the helicopter in a total POS. She ran her beater car/home into the ground and had to stop and surrender too, and she left her pitbull in the car for the CHP and Animal Control to deal with.

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.

Tuesday night now. We slept for awhile. We woke up.
The dogs went outside. The dogs got fed.
We got a coke (Coca-Cola in a can) with ice and drank it.
We took the dog outside again. 

10:00pm: We just found out the little boy, the “Love Sponge” passed.
We are so very sad. May his memory be a blessing.
And may the Four Winds blow him safely home.

We’re just done for the night. 

There were days
There were days
And there were days I know
When all we ever wanted
Was to learn and love and grow
When we grew into our shoes
And told them where to go
Walked halfway ’round the world
On promise of the glow
Stood upon a mountain top
Walked barefoot in the snow
Gave the best we had to give
How much we’ll never know, never know

COAST GUARD DAY! It’s the United States Coast Guard’s Birthday!
Commemorate the founding of the United States Coast Guard today!
Created as the Revenue Cutter Service on August 4, 1790,
with ten ships to combat smuggling and enforce tariff laws,
by Secretary of the Treasury Alexander Hamilton.

2:45am: THERE IS A MOUSE IN THE HOUSE…. WTF?
It must have come in through the hole in the screen door.
We heard a rustling noise from the desk behind us.
We turned around, and there was a mouse on top of the printer!
And it jumped behind the printer and disappeared,
so we cleared the desk behind us of stuff and moved the printer,
NO MOUSE of course.
So it may have escaped the way it got in (good),
or it may still be in the Home Office hiding (not good),
the dog didn’t even wake up, and so we put him in the cage
while we moved everything from on top and under the desk.
Needed dusting anyway, right? Time to reorganize the back desk?
BONUS: We also found some important papers we were looking for.
BONUS: We got access to another power strip + more outlets.
And we think we might move the printer to another place….
Might even create a real “studio background” for Zoom/Youtube.

poppingchampagne

5:40am: The mouse is still in the Home Office….
We almost got it by the dog’s water bowl but didn’t take the shot.
(we currently have a Louisville Slugger at the ready)
So, it might have found it’s way into the closet (not good).
We have used the time this morning, since we aren’t going to sleep,
to start the ‘Spring Cleaning’ that never happened during the Pandemic…
and so now we are working at “getting sh*t organized.”

National Raisin Bran Day 

7:20am: We got the newspapers.
We made and drank a cup of espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.
8:20am: The NBC Tokyo Olympics coverage continues to suck.
We had another shot at the mouse, but we didn’t want to kill it.
We ate a slice of banana bread.

Cheers! It’s National White Wine Day! 
Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc. Pinot Grigio, Riesling, Chablis,
Chenin Blanc, Sancerre, Albarino, Cava, Champagne, and many more!

Sunday Champagne Brunch – Mimosas all around!

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZZ.

12:10pm: We fell asleep and slept. 
We just woke up and the Home Office is a mess from this morning.
Chore Boy has a lot of stuff to do now. And it’s HOT out today.

1:40pm: We made an iced espresso. We vacuumed one time.
Watching Olympics Women’s Skateboarding while we clean.
We vacuumed two times. 

3:50pm: The Home Office cleaning crusade continues.
4:30pm: Why do we have so many toys? And so many mugs?
4:45pm: FUCK. 
5:15pm: FUCK. Time is just flying by today. Another ten minutes gone.

6:40pm: The dogs got fed. The dogs went outside. We ate some food.
On The Menu: Fried chicken breast and corn on the cob.
And a KrispyKreme glazed donut for dessert.

Today was National Single Working Woman’s Day“YOU GO GIRL!”

champagne_uncorking_photographed_with_a_high_speed_air-gap_flash

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZZ. We fell asleep with the dog.

8:50pm: We woke up and took the dog outside.
No sign of the mouse yet today.
We hoped it escaped through the hole in the screen door…..

9:45pm: NOPE. The mouse didn’t escape today.
WARNING: ANIMAL LOVERS SHOULD SKIP THIS NEXT PARAGRAPH.

We just caught it. We went to the kitchen and made an iced espresso. 
When we got back to the Home Office, we heard it moving around inside an open top box, and then we saw it, and we tried to cover the box, trap the mouse, to take it outside. But then it jumped out of the box, and then it ran behind the headboard of the bed. We trapped it between the wall and the headboard, and then it quickly succumbed to “blunt force trauma”. RIP. We bagged it and trashed it, and the mouse problem is now history.

There were days
And there were days
And there were days between
Polished like a golden bowl
The finest ever seen
Hearts of Summer held in trust
Still tender, young and green
Left on shelves collecting dust
Not knowing what they mean
Valentines of flesh and blood
As soft as velveteen
Hoping love would not forsake
The days that lie between, lie between

Thursday, August 5, 2021
It’s National Underwear Day!
(so, please don’t go “commando”)
Remembering Marilyn Monroe today.

Marilyn-Monroe-Full-Suite

1:11am: Well we cleaned the Home Office a lot today.
And we took care of the mouse problem.
And Chore Boy will be back later to do more stuff.  
AND ALSO, WE HAVE TOO MUCH STUFF.
So, we got stuff here back to normal for now.
And we have the Olympics on with the sound off.
NBC REPEAT (sh*tty) COVERAGE of earlier today:
“The thrill of victory, the agony of defeat” 
Listening to music, watching YouTube vids, 
working on this Blog Post tonight.

4:20am: We just made and drank an iced espresso. Yes, we’re still awake.
Watching the Olympics Track and Field. Shotput and Triple Jump.
We watched running, and hurdles yesterday.
But we still haven’t seen a full event, because the NBC coverage is CHAOS.
Don’t know any of the athletes, but they are incredible physical specimens!
(We’ve seen pieces of diving, gymnastics, golf, skateboarding, soccer,
volleyball, basketball, and now track and field – but we missed so many events!) 
225013274_10158596596193369_3607434370607849290_n

And “mental health” is the media hot word this week.
Thank you Simone Biles.
SEE OUR PREVIOUS BLOG POSTS.

8:25am: And hello morning. We didn’t sleep. Don’t think we slept.
The dogs were barking. The dogs went outside. The dogs got fed.
We got the newspapers.
We drank an iced espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.

Okay, before the dogs woke up, we made breakfast.
We had a bacon cheeseburger and fries left in the fridge.
On The Menu: We made a bacon cheeseburger and fries BURRITO
We took the 2 patties, bacon and cheese and chopped them.
Normally we get lettuce, but it look like they screwed up the order again.
No lettuce. We put the stuff on two flour tortillas, added fries, 
added cheese, and heated it up in the toaster oven.
Then we added red onion and salsa verde and ate it up. Pretty good.

Giant-Smiley-Face15

So now we’re chilling’ with the dogs in the Home Office.
And thinking about a nap….

11:15am: No nap yet.

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZZ.

2:50pm: And we’re awake again.
We fell asleep and took that nap.
Why don’t they play the washboard anymore?
Just a random question.
We took the dog outside. It’s HOT out again.
3:15pm: We made an iced espresso.
Drink More Coffee. Drink More Water. 

Wild fires are raging up in Northern California and Oregon. 
Yuba, Placer and Nevada Counties are burning.
The historic Gold Rush town of Greenfield was totally destroyed by fire today.
100 large fires have burned 1,947,811+ acres in 14 states!
Screen Shot 2021-08-05 at 15.21.06

 

4:45pm: We made an iced mocha/coffee shake with vanilla ice cream.
And we are hoping for a high speed pursuit right now.
Our Top Story Tonight! CORONAVIRUS! DELTA VARIANT!
“COVID SURGE!”  Vaccine Requirements and Mandates!
xxxxxxxxxxxxxx NOPE. Not going to go there now.

5:45pm: We took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs supper.
We took the dogs outside. FUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCK!

NOTE: We don’t usually censor our Blog Posts.
But the following is being removed because we want to.

A quick (public) personal rant xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX Okay, now we’re done. 

Another short rant:
FFS. It’s COVID-19. Delta Variant. (so sick of this now)
Remove restrictions, relax requirements, and pretend the pandemic is over….
AND THEN WONDER WHY THE DISEASE IS SPREADING. Hmmmm?
Open indoor dining, gyms, public spaces.
Have concerts, parties, and sporting events.
Send children back-to-school.
AND THEN WONDER WHY THE DISEASE IS SPREADING. Hmmmm?
Tell people it’s okay to take off masks, and that it’s okay to gather again.
Half the population is still not FULLY VACCINATED! WTF?
HAVE YOU SEEN THE PICTURES FROM LAS VEGAS?
Unmasked, unvaccinated tourists by the thousands in public!
And then everyone goes home with the virus to wherever on Sunday.
AND THEN WONDER WHY THE DISEASE IS SPREADING. Hmmmm?

Now that the Delta Variant is killing the unvaccinated, maybe that will change.

“Ask and you shall receive.”
Pursuit started in Glendale ended in Elysian Park. FIVE ARMED SUSPECTS IN CUSTODY after crashing their Compton Clown Car. They got airborne after hitting the curb and losing control. They had a head-on with a telephone pole. Flipped a couple more times and then they all crawled out with their hands up into the waiting arms of the Glendale PD with AR-15s and Attack Dogs.

And they are lucky that they are just under arrest.
(Update: Tonight the entire neighborhood is without power. Total Blackout!)

6:15pm: We need another nap.

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZZ.

8:45pm: And now we are awake again. Time to eat.

10:25pm: We made some food.
On The Menu: Fried chicken breast, dill pickle, celery and carrot sticks,
strawberries and an iced espresso to drink
230661460_5006386569387869_1751509006201383179_n

10:55pm: WE GOT ANOTHER PURSUIT! And then they lost him in DTLA….
He drove into the 3rd street tunnel and didn’t come out. WTF?
We took the dog outside. And it’s almost Friday.

There were days
And there were days
And there were days between
Polished like a golden bowl
The finest ever seen
Hearts of Summer held in trust
Still tender, young and green
Left on shelves collecting dust
Not knowing what they mean
Valentines of flesh and blood
Still tender, young and green
Hoping love would not forsake

MAH “Dear Jerry” Postcard – front

“Dear Mister Fantasy play us a tune
Something to make us all happy
Do anything take us out of this gloom
Sing a song, play guitar
Make it snappy
You are the one who can make us all laugh
But doing that you break out in tears
Please don’t be sad if it was a straight mind you had
We wouldn’t have known you all these years”

12:55am: We took the dogs outside. And now they’re sleeping.

5:20am: And we are still awake five hours later.
We ate a slice of banana bread with a little melted butter.
We took the dogs outside and now they are in the bedroom sleeping.

Happy Jerry Day 2021!

8:30am: We drank an iced espresso. We prepped the dogs’ breakfast.
We did a load of laundry. Wash, dry, and fold.
We got the newspapers (the delivery was late this morning).
We took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs. We took the dogs outside.
Now they’re back in the bedroom while we become Chore Boy.

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZ.

11:55am: Chore boy didn’t do sh*t. He took a short nap.
And then we woke up and took the dogs outside at 11:20am.
We played with the dogs and now they’re back in the bedroom again.


WTF? There was a strange woman walking on the street out front of the house behaving strange, She walked through the bushes on the side of the house, so we investigated, but we didn’t see anything out of place.

12:15pm: It’s HOT today, and it’s only Noon.
And it’s going to be HOT all week in the SFV:

We drank an iced espresso and now we’re thinking about “Brunch”.

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZ. Nappy time again.

3:10pm: We took a short nap. We woke up.
We ate the four leftover slices of pizza (two cold, and two warm).
We took the dogs outside. It’s really HOT out now. Currently 96 degrees F.
The “F” is for FUCKING HOT as well as for Fahrenheit.
Now we’re chillin’ with the dogs in the Home Office again with the AC on
and watching the Olympics on TV.

9:40pm: Sunday night. Watching the Olympics on TV.
We drank another iced espresso.
And we’re almost ready to make some dinner.

1:55am on Monday morning. We still haven’t eaten dinner.
Just a “Simple Twist of Fate” we guess.
Must be the “Moonlight Madness” tonight.
Or we might be “Tangled Up In Blue” too.
We took the dogs outside and then we played with the dogs.
They were with us in the Home Office as we worked on a new Blog Post.
We just took them outside again and put them in the bedroom.
And so, we are recapping this Blog Post “After Midnight” now.

We were up all night and went to bed around 6:00am.
We slept for an hour and woke up and took the dog outside.
The dogs went outside. The dogs got fed. We got the newspapers.
We went back to bed. We woke up and went back to bed.
Then we woke up and started our day around noon.
We drank an iced espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.
We took the dogs outside. It’s a beautiful day today. It’s HOT again.
And now the dogs are sleeping all over the Home Office.

On The Menu: Lunchtime! 2 Hotdogs with mustard, dill pickle,
1/2 an avocado, potato chips, cherries, and a nectarine

7:00pm: Good Evening Everybody! “S-A-T-U-R-D-A-Y NIGHT!”
We made some food. We watched TV and surfed the internet.
We took a nap. We played with the dogs. The dogs went outside.
The dogs got fed. “Live from the Home Office, it’s Saturday Night!”

10:50pm: We drank a glass of cran-raspberry-orange juice.
We attempted to clean the Home Office a little…. yeah, nice try.

It was named Tote’m Stores between 1928 and 1946.- wikipedia
The name was changed in 1946 to “7-Eleven” because of their new

12:35am: And now it’s after midnight. It’s Sunday morning. It’s 7-11-21.

5:36am: We watched “The Tomorrow War” on Prime this morning. Twice.
CGI and computer graphics have come a long way. It was pretty f*ckin’ cool.

7:00am: The dogs started barking before 6:00am. So we didn’t sleep.

11:55am: We took the dogs outside. The dogs got fed. We went back to bed.
We woke up and went back to bed. We slept. We woke up and made BRUNCH.

live-aid-ukposter01

On this day in 1985, the LIVE AID concerts were held in Philadelphia and London

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.

4:30pm: We took a shower.

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.

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
with guitar tabs and instruction.
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.

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,
guitarist and singer Malcolm Welbourne aka Papa Mali,
multi-instrumentalist Matt Hubbard, and bassist George Porter Jr.
NOTE: Reed Mathis was an original member of 7 Walkers,
He played on the self-titled debut album (released on November 2, 2010)
He left the band due to touring commitments and was replaced by George Porter Jr..


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

slide_1

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).

The Los Angeles Dodgers are at The White House this morning meeting with President Joe Biden. And LA Mayor Garcetti is there (of course he is, because NO PHOTO OP IS TOO BIG OR SMALL). Garcetti is lobbying for a Washington gig while the City of Los Angeles remains a total mess. What about the BUSISNESS OF LOS ANGELES?

President Joe Biden and Vice-President Kamala Harris met with the Los Angeles Dodgers. They gave the President and Vice-President personalized jerseys. Pitcher Clayton Kershaw made a short thank you speech. Joe told a Satchel Page story and made a joke about age, and then rambled on for too long again. And then they took pictures.

5:20pm: We got the newspapers and the mail. We took the dogs outside. We took a nap with the dogs. We made another iced espresso. It was HOT outside. We stayed inside. Nothing happened. We ate the leftover pizza for lunch. And it’s time to feed the dogs again. We’ve already set up their supper. Just going to wait a little bit. We didn’t do anything today again. Friday. Friday.

Five to one, baby. One in five
No one here gets out alive

Jim Morrison RIP
December 8, 1943 – July 3, 1971

On this day in 1776, the Declaration of Independence
was adopted by the Second Continental Congress.

On this day in 1863, the Battle of Gettysburg ended.
The three days of fighting in Pennsylvania finished with a victory for the Union.

ALL FIREWORKS ARE ILLEGAL IN THE CITY OF LOS ANGELES!

EXTREME FIRE DANGER! Just say NO to fireworks this year. 

8:40am: We didn’t sleep well. We slept a little. We woke up.
The dogs went outside and got fed. We made an iced espresso.

11:00am: We drank the iced espresso. We got the newspapers and the mail.
We ate a toasted onion bagel with cream cheese.

3:36pm: We took a nap. We woke up. We took the dogs outside.
We made another iced espresso. We had the dog in the Home Office.
Now they’re in the bedroom. We need to eat. We are listening to music.
Its HOT out. And really bright out. .And we just wasted another hour….

4:20pm.

8:45pm: We made some food. Call it early dinner or late lunch.
We took the dogs outside. The dogs got fed. We took the dogs outside.
Then we took a nap with the dogs.

On The Menu: 2 hotdogs with bacon, cheese, onion and mustard;
dill pickle, carrot & celery sticks, fresh guacamole and salsa verde
with tortilla chips, and a Dr Pepper

10:55pm: Called the police on the neighbors shooting off fireworks in their backyard again.
Scares the dogs. Annoys the shit out of us. Scares the birds and wild animals.
We are calling everytime from now on. LAPD is overburdened and it’s not an emergency.
And we just spent 22 minutes on HOLD waiting for LAPD Non-Emergency Operator.
CALL 877-LAPD247 to report ILLEGAL FIREWORKS!
ALL FIREWORKS ARE ILLEGAL IN THE CITY OF LOS ANGELES!

HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY!

12:08am: It’s Independence Day! Happy Fourth!
The alarm next door was going off for about 15 minutes,
There was another loud explosion just before midnight.
Now all is quiet. But random fireworks can still be heard farther away.
LAPD is busy working street racers taking over intersections,
a kidnapping, persons with guns, persons with green lasers,
and the usual robberies, assaults, and other crimes.
AND THEY ARE GOING TO ARREST THE GUY WITH THE GREEN LASER!

When Independence Day falls on a Sunday,
the following Monday is a Federal Holiday
and a State Holiday in all US states except Texas.

We’ve been taking cover with he dogs in the Home Office all night.
The neighbors started with fireworks at 5:45pm. We called the police again.
The dogs got fed. We took the dogs outside.
The fireworks show at El Caballero Country Club has got to be stopped!
TOO FUCKING LOUD! BOOM BOOM BOOM! BOOM! BOOM! BOOM!
And so many illegal fireworks going off all over the city. Sounds like a war zone.
We took the dogs outside. We made and ate dinner.

On The Menu: Thin cut top sirloin steak and onions

and Las Vegas, on the TV and on the interweb.

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

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

CELEBRATE ONE THOUSAND PUBLISHED BLOG POSTS WITH US!
1000 posts

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

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

We began reporting on COVID-19 in January of 2020!
We warned our loyal readers about the CoronaVirus in early February 2020!
And we issued a TRAVEL ALERT and WARNING at the end of February 2020:
