COVID-19 is the leading cause of death in the United States.
565000+ Reported Deaths in the United States from COVID-19
as of today.
60000+ Reported Deaths in California from COVID-19 as of today
THE FOURTH SURGE IS HERE! SPRING BREAK! MARCH MADNESS! EASTER!
“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.

Saturday, April 17, 2021 – “One More Saturday Night”

41gwqmwk4fl

3:30am: Had a pizza delivered around 9pm on Friday.
New York style extra-large sausage and meatball. Ate 3 slices.
Reheated and ate 3 slices at 3:30am.
And then we finally fell asleep around dawn.
Reheated and ate 2 slices for breakfast.

It’s National Haiku Poetry Day!
Japanese non-rhyming poetry, 3 lines with a syllable pattern of 5-7-5.
Can 17 syllables express an entire moment or emotion?
Read our previous Haiku Blog Posts!

Hail King Cock Doodle!
On National Haiku Day
How was the parade?

National Cheeseball Day! (no not you, the food)
A cheeseball is a spread made with softened cream cheese and other ingredients in the shape of a ball served with crackers and usually served as an appetizer. Cheese puffs (“Cheesy Poofs”) are a puffed corn snack coated with a mixture of cheese/cheese flavor.


Easy Bacon Cheeseball

Ingredients:
2 – 8oz packages of cream cheese (softened)
2-1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (or other cheese if preferred)
1 packet of ranch dressing mix
1 small packet of real bacon pieces (or use real chopped bacon bits)
1 cup finely chopped pecans or veggies

Directions:
In a medium bowl, smooth cream cheese
Combine ranch dressing mix, cheese and bacon pieces – mix into cream cheese
Shape the mixture into a ball and then roll in nuts or veggies until fully covered.
Chill for at least 2 hours.  Serve with crackers. 


National Crawfish Day

International Bat Appreciation Day

National Ellis Island Family History Day

NOTE: National Auctioneers Week is April 26 to May 1 in 2021. There was some confusion, but according to the National Auctioneers Association website, National Auctioneers Day is on the first Saturday in May this year.

10:50am: S-A-T-U-R-D-A-Y Morning.
We woke up late….9:00am. We took the dog outside. We fed the dog breakfast.
We went outside again. We got the newspapers. We drank a cup of espresso.
We took the dog outside again. We made another cup of espresso.

Happy Fool’s Parade! All Hail King Cock Doodle!
(and there was even a “virtual” parade again this year)
175506285_4671231189570077_6641911232932369642_n

We reheated and ate two slices of leftover pizza from last night for breakfast.
And we are waiting for the other dogs to come home from their vacation this week.

11:45am: And the other dogs are home! And there was much rejoicing.
And a lot of barking and running around and butt sniffing.
So we took them all out in the big yard and now they’re happy.

1:13pm: We’re back to chillin’ in the Home Office.

3:15pm: And after a short nap with the dog, we’re awake again….F*ck.

175553544_4673786312647898_76137275455821319_n

We watched the first half of the new “Zappa” documentary.
NOTE: We went to high school with Moon Unit and Dweezil Zappa.
We were friends with Moon and watched her get super famous for “Valley Girl” in 1982.

We surfed the interweb and watched the Saturday night livestreams from Las Vegas.
We watched Youtube and FB Live. The Grand Old Opry on Saturday night.
Josh Daniel jamming and livestreaming.  Celebrate Life Everyday!
And then a little Hawaiian music for your listening pleasure.

Sunday, April 18, 2021 – SUNDAY! SUNDAY!

6:45am: Well, we slept. We slept a lot. We fell asleep after dinner and slept.
We woke up around midnight and went back to bed and slept some more.
We must have been exhausted…. really tired, without knowing it. NOPE.
We just slept for a long time. And we drank a cup of espresso. Drink Coffee.
Drink Water. WAKE UP! Another Sunday Morning in the San Fernando Valley.
Read our previous Blog Post: “Another Pleasant Valley Sunday”

10:30am: We took the dogs outside. And now they’re chillin’
It’s a beautiful day, but it’s very windy outside.

Who be dipping in the Benz with the spoilers
On the low from the Jake in the Taurus
Trying to get my hands on some Grants like Horace

DO NOT TRAVEL! STAY HOME AND STAY HEALTHY!

HAPPY BICYCLE DAY!
Bicycle Day is an international holiday that commemorates the date that Dr. Albert Hofmann first bicycled home from his lab after dosing himself with LSD in Basel, Switzerland on April 19, 1943. (“Buy the ticket, take the ride.”)
175516212_4677326625627200_3273903829700185348_n

1:30am: And then we woke up. And now it’s Monday morning.
We’re just adding Monday to this Blog Post. Not setting up a new Blog now.
NOTE: Saturday afternoon and Sunday totally sucked
due to reasons and circumstances beyond our control.

2:55am: We might just take Monday off.

mktplmonpromo

3:50am: We are awake and watching “Echo In The Canyon” on Netflix
and we just made a cup of espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.

10:05am: We went to bed eventually and slept until 9:00am.
The dogs got fed and went outside. We made another cup of espresso.
The housekeeper came to clean, so we are isolating in the Home Office with the dog now.
The closing arguments of the Derek Chauvin (the MURDER of George Floyd) Trial today.
If there’s not a GUILTY verdict, there will be riots across the country.

BLACKLIVESMATTER! STOP POLICE BRUTALITY AND VIOLENCE!
STOP SYSTEMIC RACISM! STOP KILLING BLACK AND BROWN PEOPLE!

12:30pm: Well, we tried to take a nap. Fucking vacuum cleaner woke us up.
So disappointed. And now we’re wide awake. It’s a beautiful day out today.

3;00pm: We had the dogs in the Home Office and then we took them outside.
The housekeeper left about an hour ago. And now it’s time for lunch,
so we went into the kitchen and did just a little cooking.
On The Menu: 2 hotdogs with bacon, pepper jack cheese, chopped onions
and mustard with dill pickle slices on the side
175671954_4677858738907322_7847657458927809373_n

9:15pm: Recapping Monday. Nothing happened.
We watched Marvel’s “Avengers – Infinity Wars” again this afternoon on Disney+.
We hung out with the dogs. We took a little nap.
We took the dogs outside a few times.
We fed the dogs. And the dogs went outside again.
We just made a double iced espresso, and we also drank one earlier. Zing!
(Oh, and this one has a scoop of vanilla Haagen-Daaz ice cream in it)

On The Menu: 2 eggs over medium, bacon, 3 kinds of salami, pepper jack cheese,
dill pickle, avocado, baby carrots, pita chips, strawberries and an espresso to drink

Remember how lucky you are to have food to eat and a warm place to sleep.
Clean water. Air conditioning. Shoes. Refrigeration. A bed. That’s all.

1:40pm: Thursday morning recap. We were up all morning and then the dogs got fed.
We fell asleep around 9:00am and then woke up. The housekeeper came and cleaned. We were awake for a little while, watched President Joe Biden’s first Press Conference, and then we went back to bed with the dogs and slept until after 1:00pm. We drank a cup of espresso and now we are updating this Blog Post.


Tolkien Reading Day was created by The Tolkien Society in 2003.
March 25th was chosen because it is the day of the fall of Sauron
in J.R.R. Tolkien’s “The Lord of the Rings – The Return of the King”.

135526367_1960010874140790_3491002091392048917_n

J.R.R. Tolkien aka “The Professor” (Jan. 3, 1892 – Sept. 2, 1973)
English writer, poet, philologist, World War I veteran, and university professor.
Author of “The Hobbit”, “The Lord of the Rings”, “The Silmarrillion”, and more than 30 other books (and a few posthumously).

4:05pm: We went to the dentist. It was not fun. It freaked us out.
HERE’S OUR STORY IF YOU’RE INTERESTED:
It was only an “exam” and it almost wasn’t even that. We went to a new dentist.
Our dentist of almost 40 years retired and sold his business to a good dentist.
We had a filling replaced in December by our doctor, and then he checked out in January.
So, we got dressed, we drove over (to the same office), we parked, we walked up the stairs to the second floor (no elevator rides with strangers, thank you) and down the hall to the office. There is a small waiting area and there was a woman seated inside, and she wasn’t wearing her mask, but it on when we came in. We  stood and waited in the waiting room at the window for the receptionist for awhile. The woman in the waiting area told us we should call out because they were not there. So we called out, and two of the hygienists were eating in a side room, without masks of course, and there was only a half drawn curtain between that room and the reception area.  We called out and one of the hyenists stuck her head out from behind the curtain and told us someone was coming. Another woman opened the office door to come inside, then backed up when she saw us in the waiting room, and closed the door. The receptionist came to the window, we watched her put her mask on as she finished some food, and when she got to the window her mask wasn’t covering her nose, and she handed us the clipboard and paperwork without sanitizing her hands. We took the clipboard and went out into the hall, as the woman waiting outside opened the door and entered. NO SOCIAL DISTANCING AT ALL. NOT SAFE. WE DID NOT FEEL SAFE. We should have just left then.
We filled out the paperwork in the hall, but didn’t sign the form because we hadn’t spoke with the dentist. We needed to talk about the conditions before agreeing to the COVID-19 “liability waiver”. So then we went back into the office and turned in the clipboard and went back into the hall. There was another woman at the desk, so four other people, plus the 2 or 3 hygienists in the office and the dentist makes eight (but he wasn’t back from lunch yet). While we were out in the hall, the first woman who was waiting decided not to stay. She came out of the office and said “I have to find a new dentist”. And the nurse/hygenist came and got us from the hall, and then we waited in the open exam space inside the office with all those people for about fifteen minutes, and we were really sweating and nervous. And we should have just left then.
WE WOULD HAVE WAITED LONGER IF THE FIRST WOMAN HADN’T LEFT.
We saw the dentist come back from lunch and he went into his office and put on a white coat, and then he came out and greeted another patient in another exam space. Meanwhile, we spoke with the nurse/hygenist who asked why we were nervous. We told her, and then we met the new dentist. And then we told him why we were nervous.

We were going to go to our bank on the way home, but there were too many cars in the parking lot out front and then we watched an old man walk in the doors as we pulled in. After our experience at the dentist, we just decided “not today, maybe tomorrow”, and then we pulled out and drove home.

6:20pm: We fell asleep with the dogs. And then we woke up.
The dogs went outside. And the dogs got fed. And the dogs went outside.
We drank a cup of espresso. We ordered a pizza delivery.
So food will soon be here, which is good, because we haven’t eaten all day.
Dinner was delivered. We ate. We took the dogs outside again.
On The Menu: Extra-large sausage and meatball pizza and a small Caesar salad.

Well, we watched some TV, and surfed some interweb. Then we fell asleep.
When we woke up it was 12:34am on Friday. A brand new day! It’s the weekend!

National Spinach Day!
ubfuqqa0aj321

Epilepsy Awareness Day!


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.

141514683_4416776985015500_7089981879428009993_n

12:50am: We just woke up and took the Big Dog outside.
We drank a small glass of juice. Now we’re chillin’ in the home office.


Random Thoughts on Friday Morning:
We are all going to die. That’s right. 100% of us will experience DEATH.
When will it be your turn? What’s going to happen to you? How will you die?
What will you do with the time you have left? It could all end tomorrow.
What will you do tomorrow? What did you do today?
We went to the dentist today. We might go to the bank tomorrow.

The Virgin Hotel and Mohegan Sun Casino opened today in Las Vegas, Nevada, 
where the old Hard Rock Hotel (1995-2020) was at 4455 Paradise Road.
(and all the Vegas Vloggers were there, so there’s a lot of new vids online tonight)

5:15am: So we’re still awake. 
We just drank our first cup of espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water. Eat Pizza.
We ate a cold slice of pizza for breakfast.

2:55pm: We fed the dogs. The dogs went outside. And then we went to bed.
We woke up and went back to bed. We drank a cold cup of espresso.
We took the dogs outside. Now we are awake and back in the Home Office.
IT’S A BEAUTIFUL DAY OUTSIDE! We drank a warm cup of espresso.
Maybe we’ll go back to bed again…….

LAPD arrested 182 protesters last night outside Echo Park.
The City of Los Angeles is cleaning out the homeless encampment. HAHAHA.
We are laughing at the City of LA, not the homeless. Garcetti is worthless.
NOTE: We wrote about the homeless in Echo Park in 2015!
Read our previous Blog Post! “Saturday in Echo Park”
THEY ARE NOT SERIOUS ABOUT THE HOMELESS PROBLEM.
THEY ARE THROWING MONEY AT DEVELOPERS BUT NOT THE HOMELESS.
The conditions for the homeless in LA during the pandemic haven’t improved.
The City of LA removed all the homeless and put them in apartment/motel spaces for who knows how long, except for two people who were arrested and forcibly removed by LAPD. Echo Park will now be cleaned and sanitized. And the homeless will be back next week.

STOP ASIAN HATE! Trump and the GOP Traitors did this.
Don’t forget about stopping HATE against African-Americans, Jews, Latinos, and
people from the Middle East. RACIST HATE CRIMES ARE UP ACROSS THE BOARD!
More protests around town today and tomorrow. Media eats it up. More DISTRACTION!

And now THIS! The Suez Canal is blocked by a very large container ship that got stuck sideways. They are working to get it unstuck…. and traffic is backing up. 
TO THE TUNE OF NINE BILLION DOLLARS A DAY. You know someone’s getting fired.
165245423_10222246293080857_3882643177949098477_n
The Suez Canal is a main shipping route for global trade.
So Evergreen Shipping and its insurance companies are going to have to pay, right?
And the news says to expect shortages of things like toilet paper (really?) and OIL.
Prices are already rising for gasoline, but they could go higher if oil shipments are delayed because of this stupidity. 

7:30pm: Recapping Friday afternoon.
We watched YouTube vids – Virgin Hotel opening, Pompsie at Circa, etc.
We drank an iced espresso. We drank a warm espresso. Drank water too.
We slept for awhile. We woke up. We ordered sushi for dinner.
The dogs got fed and went outside. 
We got dressed and went out and picked up the sushi.
We brought it home and ate it. It was good. Good Shabbos!
We are very freaked out about COVID-19 right now.
Watching Josh Daniel LIVE and Billy Strings promo LIVE now.
“Celebrate Life Everyday!” – just tearing it up tonight!

On The Menu: SUSHI. Spicy tuna cut roll, California roll, rainbow roll,
eel & avocado cut roll, and albacore sashimi. Shabbat Shalom.
165260392_4600507696642427_663754556331057852_o

10:15pm: We fell asleep for a little bit after we ate.
We woke up and took the dogs outside.

And Las Vegas is busy tonight again…. what there’s a CoronaVirus Pandemic?

Saturday, March 27, 2021 – HAPPY PASSOVER!
Happy Birthday Quentin Tarentino!
It’s World Theatre Day!

166129885_10158313347736200_2506347010650880975_o

2:35am: We watched “Saturday Night Fever” again.
But we stopped the film and got a couple of slices of leftover pizza to eat.
And an iced espresso to drink.
We watched the movie, and then fell down the Youtube rabbit hole again.
Now “RED” is on, with Bruce Willis, and we can watch it over and over,
and we have.

3;45pm: Recapping Saturday Morning: Nothing. We were still up at dawn.
The dogs got fed and went outside. We went back to bed. We slept for awhile.
We woke up and went outside with the dogs and then went back to bed. 
It’s a beautiful day outside. We drank an espresso earlier.
We haven’t eaten yet today, not since the pizza after midnight, so we’re hungry now.

Jewish holiday time again! The first night of Passover is tonight. 
Passover Seder 2014, in the past “social time” – 20+ guests for dinner every year….

1016018_864570106902890_4785130816591379173_o

HAPPY PASSOVER! “Chag Sameach!” “Good Yom Tov!”
GOOD DAY! Happy and Kosher Festival! Happy and Kosher Holidays!
The Hebrew term Yom Tov (יום טוב), means festival day, one of the six biblical festivals when activities prohibited on Shabbat are also prohibited. (except some food prep stuff).
On Yom Tov, as on Shabbat, it’s a mitzvah to refrain from work!
That means by not doing working, you’re doing a mitzvah and keeping the day holy.
The first day and last day of Passover are full “Yom Tov”,
and the rest of Passover has the status of intermediate days “Chol Hamoed” 

Prince-of-Egypt

Passover (aka Pesach aka “Ḥag haMatzot”, the Festival of Unleavened Bread) 
Passover celebrates the Exodus from Egypt, the liberation of Israel from slavery.
The Passover holiday observance lasts seven days in Israel and eight outside Israel.

principe do egito giphy

4:45pm: We were invited to a Seder, STAYTHEF*CKHOME!
but we are not going to a dinner party, sorry. WTF? NO PARTIES!
The dogs got fed and went outside. ZERO CONTACT!
We drank a cup of espresso and ate a cold piece of pizza.
We didn’t go to the market. We’ll just wait until Monday or Tuesday.
THERE IS A CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC! YOU CAN STILL GET SICK AND DIE!
There will be another spike because of Spring Break, stupidity, and carelessness.

166217878_5810060579007658_1518452850986493416_n

7:55pm: We took another nap. We woke up and drank another espresso.
We took the dogs outside. We played with the dogs. 
We checked in with the Vegas Livestreams. WORSE THAN LAST NIGHT!

Monday, March 15, 2021 – The Ides of March! BEWARE!
(Read our previous Blog Post “The Ides of March”)

58442736_10218734104528711_4591619828141260800_n
Thanks to William Shakespeare and the play “Julius Caesar” we’ve all heard of The Ides of March. The story goes, in 44 BC a seer told Julius Caesar that his downfall would come no later than the Ides of March (March 15th). Caesar ignored him and later joked with the seer “The Ides of March have come.” The seer replied, “aye, Caesar; but not gone.” Caesar then attended the meeting of the Senate at the Theatre of Pompey, and was murdered by as many as 60 conspirators.
Gaius Julius Caeser (July 13, 100 BC – March 15, 44 BC)

Caesar:
Who is it in the press that calls on me? 
I hear a tongue, shriller than all the music, Cry ‘Caesar!’ 
Speak; Caesar is turn’d to hear.

Soothsayer:
Beware the Ides of March.

gettyimages_168966911
And then the Senators got stabby and it didn’t end well for Caeser.
“Et tu Brute?”

9:05am: Good morning Monday! They said it was gonna rain. And it’s raining.
It’s been raining for a few hours, not too hard, but constant, and there’s a lot of water.
“We need the rain” yep, We need the rain. And it’s snowing higher up too because it’s cold.

The Grammys were last night. Big whoop.
Congratulations to Billy Strings! Bluegrass Artist.
Oscar! Oscar! Nominations were announced this morning…. and the winner is……
A bunch of films we didn’t see, BECAUSE what a joke.
DOES ANY OF THIS MATTER? WHY IS THIS NEWS? WHAT IS IT COSTING?
Award shows? This year? Really? Why not just cancel and give the money to relief.
You don’t need a three and half hour commercial for your entertainment products….
people are trapped at home with no alternatives, just market directly to them.
Send the awards to the winners by Amazon delivery. GAME OVER.
NO ONE REALLY WANTS TO WATCH A SELF-INDULGENT AWARD SHOW THIS YEAR.
Okay, rant over. Enjoy your celebrity news, gossip and award shows. None of it matters.

The dogs got fed and they went outside before and after. We got the newspapers.
We made some breakfast. We didn’t really have dinner last night: we ate one cold slice of pizza and that was it, so we were hungry this morning and so we had dinner for breakfast.
On The Menu: 2 hotdogs with mustard, cheese and chopped onions with a dill pickle for breakfast. And an espresso to drink.

2:15pm: And then the housekeeper came. We got the mail.
We isolated with the dogs in the Home Office while she was here.
When she finished, and after she left, we took the dogs outside again.

And there were TWO late night pursuits last night!
The first was a nut job street racing through traffic on the freeway at really high speed.
The driver blew the engine, thankfully, and the car slowly came to a stop on the highway.
And the driver and his passengers surrendered.
The second pursuit happened at midnight, but there was still a helicopter to cover it!
Dude stole a stakebed truck and spike strips were deployed, the front tires went flat, but the driver kept pushing the truck until he was grinding the front end on the road at 30mph.
He drove on for a long time trailing sparks until the truck caught on fire. He pulled to the center median, with the flames under the cab, and foot bailed across the freeway, ran up the side of a hill and just gave up on the hillside when he ran out of motivation. Ended in Upland.
Suspect in custody, Truck on fire. IT WAS A REALLY GOOD ONE FOR US!

5:10pm: We ate the last four slices of leftover pizza. We took the dogs outside.
We made another espresso.
Now we’re back chilling’ in the Home Office until it’s the dog’s suppertime.
We have to adjust their feeding schedule because of Daylight Savings,
another problem from this bulls*t time change.

11:25pm: Monday Night Live! Recapping the evening. 
We waited to feed the dogs and we said, “oh we’ll just lie down for a minute”….
And two hour later we woke up and fed the dogs at 8:00pm.
(which is actually only 7:00pm because of Daylight Savings)
So we took the dogs out, and they got supper, and we took the dogs out,
AND IT IS COLD OUT TONIGHT. And this is Los Angeles winter in Spring. WTF?
We talked to our friend in Texas earlier, and it’s colder here than it is there today.
The dogs are happy, and we are back to our normal state of anxiety and stress almost.
Still recovering from last week and the weekend…. feeling better now.
We just took the dogs out and drank an iced espresso,
and we are thinking about food and it’s 11:40pm.

It’s Mr. Video! This dude cracks me up with his reaction videos on YouTube.

Tuesday, March 16, 2021 – Do Not TravelTuesday! 
It’s the 75th day of the year. WE ARE ALL “SAFER-AT-HOME”

On The Menu: Corn chowder with bacon and crushed Ritz crackers
161058143_4569463629746834_771864916100100389_o

4:45am: We made some corn chowder and ate it. And then we had some ice cream.
We took the dogs out again. They slept, we didn’t. We watched youtube. 
We woke them up, took them outside again, and now we’re back in the Home Office.
 (and we think we fell asleep around 6:00am)

It’s National Panda Day!
National-Panda-Day-March-16
Giant Pandas are native to mainland China,
Pandas are members of the Bear family (Ursidae).
Pandas are an endangered species: There are only ~1864 in the wild and 100 in zoos.
Pandas eat mostly plants (bamboo) and they do not hibernate in the winter.

It’s National Artichoke Day!
The artichoke was named the state vegetable of California in 2013!
Castroville, California is the “Artichoke Capital of the World”
***99% of North American artichokes are grown in California!***
Artichokes are from the Mediterranean.
Artichokes are one of the oldest foods in the world.
The Greeks and Romans ate artichokes in the 8th century! 

It’s National Freedom of Information Day!
Congress passed the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) in 1966.
Happy birthday James Madison! (the 4th President of the United States)
madison
Known as the “Father of the Constitution” and the Architect of the Bill of Rights

Married to Dolley Payne Todd, the first First Lady, on September 15, 1794.
James Madison died on June 28, 1836, at his Montpelier Estate in Vermont.

 8:30am: F*ck you Daylight Savings time.
We are all messed up because of the time change. Spring forward my a**. 
We woke up. We took the dogs outside. It’s cold out there. The dogs got fed. 
We took the dogs outside. We got the newspapers. Chilly willy Billy.
We made and drank a cup of espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.
And so good morning Tuesday.

Ewe_tDGWgAITs_8

9:30am: Well, we wasted an hour watching the “news” and working on this Blog Post.
BIRDS AND SQUIRRELS! (and rats, possums, raccoons, skunks, cats, and coyotes)
Just more distraction. But what else do we have to do today? 

HAPPY SPRING BREAK!
Have you seen the COVID-19 reports from Florida and Texas?
Have you watched the lifestreams from Las Vegas? HOLY SH*T!
Expect another spike in two weeks….. GREEDY AND STUPID AMERICANS that’s all.
This pandemic will never end. Thousands more will die. And hey, BASEBALL SEASON!
Sporting events, Live Music events, movie theaters, indoor restaurants are open again….
CA Theme Parks (Disneyland) to enforce out-of-state visitor ban. Will open on April 1st.
WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG? 

COVID-19 is the leading cause of death in the United States:
535000+ Reported COVID-19 Deaths in the United States
 (as of 3-16-2021)
FIVE HUNDRED THIRTY-FIVE THOUSAND AMERICANS ARE DEAD.
56600+ Reported COVID-19 Deaths in California
48500+ Reported COVID-19 Deaths in New York

*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.

10:25am: Another hour wasted. We made and drank another cup of espresso.
We decided to fast this morning and not eat until we get really hungry later.
11:45am: We took the dogs out to run around again. It’s a beautiful day after the rain. 
Very bright out. Sunny and cold. Almost noon now.

Celebrating Life 365 Days! Keep on Rockin’ in the Free World!
4:35pm: Josh Daniel ROCKS! Encore! Encore! Wrapping up the first show.
TWO SHOWS TODAY! Next show at 6:00pm PST. Having fun on the interweb!
These daily musical livestreams have really helped us get through the isolation.

NOTE: We started the pandemic watching Melissa Etheridge’s wonderful livestreams everyday, but then her son overdosed, and they switched to a “pay for the performance monthly” model, so we left her behind. Too many other FREE options for entertainment. We all know artists have to make money, but the audience ultimately gets to decide what they want to pay money for.

And hats off to “420Live with Jeff Kravitz” (the photographer)!  He has great guests on his podcast and he doesn’t usually wear a jacket, white shirt, and tie:
Screen Shot 2021-03-16 at 17.05.03

We took a nap and when we woke up we took the dogs outside again.
They were chillin’ in the office while we enjoyed the first show.
Now they’re taking a nap and we are thinking about food.
We did eat a few crackers. And we just drank another espresso. 
And it’s TACO TUESDAY! And we have taco makings. SO TACOS TONIGHT!

383827_329474817079091_1663254046_n

6:15pm: CHILL AFTERNOON. We didn’t do sh*t.
We thought about going to the market this morning.
And we thought about running errands this afternoon.
We realized there was no reason to leave the house today.
We have food and the errands can wait until tomorrow.
We thought about going out, but the party was on the interweb today!
We scooped some poop. And prepped the dog’s supper.
Time for Josh Daniel Day 365 Celebration Show #2! ROCK ON JOSH!

11:00pm: How did it get to be ELEVEN O’CLOCK?
We just prepped our dinner and it’s ready for cooking. Tacos in just a bit!
We watched the news, we watched the inter web, we worked on our Blog Post(s).
The dogs got fed and went outside on both sides.
And they were chilllin’ and then they were napping.
We have no idea how it got to be late…. so time for dinner.
We haven’t eaten all day, except for a stack of Ritz crackers along the way.

We fell asleep for a couple hours and woke up too early.
And we’ve been awake and now it’s time to take care of the dogs again.
Daylight Savings time sucks.

6:55am: The dogs are fed. And we went outside on both sides of their breakfast.
We got the newspapers. We thought about going to the market.
And we are trying to decide whether to drink espresso today.
Now we’re chillin’ in the Home Office with the dogs.

10:25am: And we are awake again. We fell asleep for a couple hours.
We got the water bottles and the mail. We drank a cup of espresso.
Drink Coffee. Drink Water.

2:45pm: And we are awake again. We fell asleep for a few hours.
We took the dogs outside and just said hello to the gardener. 

3:55pm: And the gardener is finished with his work and he’s gone. 

1920x1200 Clover Holidays/Saint Patrick's Day,Clover

Saint Patrick’s Day! “I’m lookin’ over a field of Clover”

8:05pm: The egg came first. Breakfast for supper.
We took the dogs outside again and then put them in the bedroom while we cooked and ate.
Then we took them outside again, fed them dinner and took them outside again.
And then we had them in the Home Office and we took them outside again.
Then we put them into the bedroom and that’s where they are right now for a little while.
We are updating our Blog Post. We have another Blog Post that we need to post now.
But we have to finish it tonight. And it’s St. Patrick’s Day, so we aren’t going anywhere. 
On The Menu: Two eggs over medium, bacon, grilled chicken breast,
two toasted English muffins with peanut butter and raspberry jam,
with another espresso to drink

12:05am Thursday: Recapping Wednesday night.
We ate and then fell asleep for a couple hours again. We woke up at 11:00pm.
We took the dogs outside. And now we’re awake again. Thursday morning is here.

The “Irish Tricolor” Flag: The National Flag of the Republic of Ireland
Green represents Irish Nationalism. 
Orange represents Northern Ireland’s Protestant minority and the Orange Order.
White represents a lasting peace between the two.

The color orange is associated with the Northern Irish Protestants.
William of Orange (William III) defeated deposed English King James II,
a Roman Catholic, in the fateful Battle of the Boyne near Dublin in 1690.
Most of Ireland’s Protestants have Scottish ancestry.

Ireland, green fields, a rainbow and sheep!

“Low lie, The Fields of Athenry
Where once we watched the small free birds fly
Our love was on the wing
We had dreams and songs to sing,”
“The Fields of Athenry” written in 1979 by Pete St. John

Ireland is the second-largest island in the British Isles,
and the third-largest island in Europe.

Monsters, Inc. Premiere
Green Beer? “Mark it zero!”

“Green beer” is a  brewers’ term still used today. It is beer that’s too young or “green” and contains acetaldehyde, which is bad because it’s not fully fermented and not good for drinking.

In 1910, the Spokane Press headline: “Green Beer Be Jabbers!” greenbeerpraise.0
Tthe First Avenue Bar in Spokane, Washington, served it to patriotic Irishmen (and to anyone else) who wanted to drink some ‘green beer’. It was later credited to Professor Thomas H. Curtin, a physician, he made it for his clubhouse in New York as early as 1914, but other green beers appeared around the same time and earlier.

To make “GREEN BEER” just add blue food coloring to a yellow beer. SCIENCE (not magic).

“When Irish eyes are smiling,
Sure, ’tis like the morn in Spring.
In the lilt of Irish laughter
You can hear the angels sing.
When Irish hearts are happy,
All the world seems bright and gay.
And when Irish eyes are smiling,
Sure, they steal your heart away.”

Lyrics by Chauncey Olcott and George Graff, Jr.; Music by Ernest R. Ball
Copyright: 1912 by M. Witmark & Sons, N.Y.
“When Irish eyes are smiling” was written for Olcott’s production of “The Isle O’ Dreams”, and Olcott sang the song in the show. It has since been covered by many famous singers and recorded over 200 times (and the copyright of this song is now in the public domain).

Fighting Irish! Put Up!

“The Wild Rover” is an Irish drinking song on the topic of temperance:
“I’ve been a wild rover for many’s the year
And I’ve spent all me money on whiskey and beer
But now I’m returning with gold in great store
And I never will play the wild rover no more
And it’s no, nay, never
No, nay never no more
Will I play the wild rover
No never no more”

7pm St. Patrick’s Day

Sláinte means “health” and sláinte mhaith means “good health”
in Irish and Scottish Gaelic. It is a common drinking toast in Ireland,
The proper response is sláinte agatsa, which means “to your health as well”

Shamrocks are associated with St. Patrick. 
Did he really use the shamrock to explain the Christian Trinity?

Tuesday, February 23, 2021 – the 54th day of the year
DO NOT TRAVEL TUESDAY!

Remembering Debbie Friedman, singer-songwriter of Jewish melodies, on her birthday today. She was born on this day in 1951 and died in 2011. May her memory be a blessing!

7:30am: We woke up around 4:00am and had a cup of espresso.
The Little Boy (dog) ate a piece of tissue when we weren’t watching and it made him sick.
So, we are doing a load of laundry, and we drank another cup of espresso,
and now we have to clean his little cage in the Home Office.
We held him for a few hours and then we took the dogs outside. He seems fine now.
We fed the dogs breakfast (Little Boy got half rations) and took them outside.
Now they are napping/resting in the bedroom while we update the Blog and do chores.

IS THERE ANYBODY OUT THERE? Are we Blog Posting for a reason?
Should we keep documenting our time in isolation during the pandemic.
IS IT BORING? Everything seems so mundane and uninteresting.
The days are blurring together. Our Blog Posts keep us busy and engaged.
Something to do besides talk to the dogs, right? Maybe it will mean something.
We read through some of our old Blog Posts from 2020,
and there’s so much history we don’t remember already because it was just CRAZY!
Eu2_W00VIAIv19i
SO MANY CRIMES committed by the GOP Traitors! 500000+ US DEAD!
Treason! Sedition! Insurrection! Felony Murder! Crimes Against Humanity!
Crimes Against Children! GENOCIDE! They knew and bought and sold stocks.

EVERY GOP TRAITOR IN THE SENATE AND THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES SHOULD RESIGN OR BE EXPELLED! THEY SHOULD BE ARRESTED AND PROSECUTED! THEY ARE ALL GUILTY OF VIOLATING THEIR OATH OF OFFICE!
Article VI of the Constitution states that other officials, including members of Congress, “shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation to support this constitution”

7c49c30564fd7fc7c9baabb1ea7fee2ee1-trump-republicans.rhorizontal.w700

“Donald John Trump engaged in High Crimes and Misdemeanors” 
TRUMP IS A LOSER! 
TRUMP FAILED. EVERYTHING TRUMP SAYS IS A LIE!
TRUMP MUST BE PUNISHED TO THE FULLEST EXTENT OF THE LAW!
Arrest Trump. Investigate Trump. Prosecute Trump.
CARRY OUT THE SENTENCE WITHOUT MERCY! NO PARDON!
Seize All of Trump’s Assets. Freeze All of Trump’s Bank Accounts Worldwide!
Arrest and Prosecute Trump’s Family! Arrest and Prosecute Trump’s Stooges!
LOCK THEM UP! LOCK THEM UP! LOCK THEM UP! LOCK THEM UP!
And now back to the tedium.

10:00am: We got the newspapers and the mail.
We ate three slices of pizza for breakfast and drank another cup of espresso.
DRINK COFFEE. DRINK WATER. EAT PIZZA.
We started calling EDD at 8:00am and wasted another hour on the phone.
WE SHOULD HAVE WAITED FOR “GREATER THAN 30 MINUTES” AGAIN LAST NIGHT!
We sent two more messages to the EDD for help via the CA EDD website today.
***We mailed (via USPS) our request for EDD paper checks to be mailed today.*** 
WE MUST REMOVE BofA FROM THE EQUATION! (and so should California!)

Screen Shot 2021-02-19 at 11.30.32

The EDD paid our claim for the last two weeks yesterday (according to the online account) but the payment was not paid to the EDD Debit Card and the card was still not activated. So now there are FOUR WEEKS of Unemployment  payments that we can’t access:
Two weeks were posted on the EDD Debit Card (which was never activated by BofA)
and now another two weeks paid and there no way for us to know where that money is….
TOTAL FAILURE AT CALIFORNIA EDD,
AND CRIMINAL FRAUD AND THEFT AT BofA!

11:00am: We took the dogs outside again. We did some chores.
It is a beautiful sunny day today! NO WIND AT ALL.
We took a tour of the backyard and let the dogs sit in the sun for awhile.
11:30am NOW WE ARE TURNING OFF THE NEWS.

Tiger Woods had a single car rollover traffic accident in Rancho Palos Verdes this morning!
He was taken to the hospital with unknown critical injuries…..WAS HE DRUNK?
He hit the “Welcome to Rolling Hills Estates” sign on Hawthorne Blvd.
The Jaws of Life were used to remove him from the damaged vehicle.
12:02 pm NOW WE ARE REALLY TURNING OFF THE NEWS.

5:15pm: We fell asleep around 2:00pm and slept for three hours.
We woke up and made a cup of espresso and drank it down. HELLO TUESDAY NIGHT.
Almost time to feed the dogs and time to decide what to eat for dinner….

6:00pm: We were outside with the dogs before they got fed and we let them play a bit.
The dogs got fed. And we all we outside again. And then again.
Now we are chillin’ with the dogs in the Home Office and they are “happy happy”.
More news about Tiger Woods of course… the golf world is sending thoughts and prayers.

7:30pm: FUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCK
FUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCK
FUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCK
Time for some YouTube vids and some dinner. We are pretty worked up about stuff today.

Did you know that on this day in 1942, California, was attacked by an Imperial Japanese Navy submarine? The Bombardment of Ellwood was a naval attack by Japan against United States coastal targets near Santa Barbara. Between 12 and 25 rounds were fired from the sub.

10:05pm: We fell asleep and slept for a couple hours, and just woke up.
We made a cup of espresso and ate a slice of cold leftover pizza…. yeah hungry.
We turned on the heat for a minute to warm the house, not taking that for granted today.
WHAT A COMPLETE DISASTER IN TEXAS! And we aren’t talking about their weather.

11:58pm: We fell back asleep and woke up again. We just took the dogs outside.

Wednesday, February 24, 2021 – HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!
IT’S OUR 8 YEAR ANNIVERSARY ON WORDPRESS! 
National Tortilla Chip Day and National Dog Biscuit Day
The United States Olympic Hockey Team “Miracle” on Ice anniversary!
The US defeated Finland 4–2 to win the gold medal on this day in 1980.

4:20am: We are awake again. Why so early? Why so wide awake?
We left the dogs in the bedroom to sleep.
We made and drank a cup of espresso and ate a slice of cold leftover pizza.
So, we turned on the TV and opened up Facebook… and now Blog Post time.

6:50am: We watched “Argo” again.
We got the newspapers and drank another cup of espresso.
Time to feed the dogs.

8:13am: Time to call the EDD Customer Service number again.
FOUR CALLS ALL DISCONNECTED – THEY HUNG UP ON US AGAIN!
Another half hour wasted on the phone, on hold, and no way to contact them again….
The dogs got fed and we were outside with them on both sides earlier.
And we did a little gardening, because the gardener comes later today.

8:55am: We tried to call EDD Customer Service and wasted more time.
The last two weeks are showing paid, so we have FOUR WEEKS that we can’t access.
We checked online again and no email response from EDD, form letter response from BofA.
THEY ARE UNABLE TO HELP THE CALIFORNIA TAXPAYERS WHO NEED HELP!

Traitor Louis DeJoy will be questioned by Congress tomorrow (Wednesday)!
The Trump stooge who tried to destroy the United States Post Office!
He did it for Trump, to interfere with the 2020 Presidential Election!
He is GUILTY of multiple Federal crimes and violating his Oath of Office.
Crimes against our Democracy, the Constitution, and the American People!
THE US GOVERNMENT MUST PROSECUTE HIM
TO THE FULLEST EXTENT OF THE LAW!

10:15am: We heated up the last three slices of leftover pizza and ate them for breakfast.
We made and drank an iced espresso. We got the mail. We checked our emails….
Drink Coffee. Drink Water. Eat Pizza. (and now we have run out of the good pizza)
But we’re not hungry now. And we didn’t have to go to the market. StayTheF*ckHome.

The California Variant of COVID-19 is more resistant to the vaccine and more deadly!
AND HERE COMES SPRING BREAK…. we’re still trying to recover from Super Bowl.
Las Vegas remains a SUPER-SPREADER EVENT EVERY WEEKEND.
The restrictions on restaurants, sporting events, and movie theaters are being lifted.
The economics are more important than PUBLIC HEALTH.
The vaccines will make people careless. People will still get sick and die.
THE MEDIA IS SELLING POSITIVITY (and vaccines) to prevent Public Panic. 
They want to send children back to school. TEACHERS AND STAFF NEED VACCINES!
120847822_10223447330355252_5364963335814108003_n

3:25pm: The gardener is here gardening. We have been outside with the dogs.
They were in the Home Office and now they are in the bedroom napping.
We just made an iced espresso, but we are also thinking about taking a nap too.
We had deliveries from Amazon and UPS today. But there were only 4 pieces of mail….
Maybe it’s because they USPS employees are making a statement about Louis DeJoy?
We took a shower and did some personal grooming stuff too. 
92439123_1216567998719680_9141907193128288256_o

4:45pm: Salad time.
We made and ate a large salad with ranch dressing.

10:30pm: We fed the dogs. We went outside with the dogs.
We fell asleep and woke up. So we just took the dogs outside again.
And now we’re all back chilling’ the Home Office.
WE ARE SO BORED…And they’re so happy.

The World War II “Battle of Los Angeles” (aka “The Great Los Angeles Air Raid”) was fought on this day in 1942! A false alarm began an anti-aircraft barrage over Southern California that continued until the next morning.

“It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood.”
DO NOT TRAVEL! STAY HOME AND STAY HEALTHY!
COVID-19 can trigger auto-immune reactions
and may cause long-term illnesse

ONE YEAR AGO:
this is a reminder that EVERYTHING TRUMP SAYS IS A LIE!

EvAgL1tUYAESl84

508000+ REPORTED US CORONAVIRUS DEATHS AS OF TODAY!
FIVE HUNDRED EIGHT THOUSAND PLUS AMERICANS ARE DEAD.
51300+ REPORED DEATHS IN THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA
46790+ REPORTED DEATHS IN THE STATE OF NEW YORK
(and these numbers are under reported, actual number are higher)
TRUMP DID THIS. JARED AND IVANKA DID THIS. MIKE PENCE DID THIS.

DONALD TRUMP REMAINS
A CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER TO THE WORLD!

WE HAVEN’T HAD THE VACCINE YET.
AND EVEN IF WE HAD TWO DOSES OF THE VACCINE
WE WOULD STILL WEARAFUCKINGMASK AND SOCIAL DISTANCE!
It takes a few weeks after vaccination to build immunity against COVID-19.
It is possible for a person to still get COVID-19 after vaccination.
PEOPLE WHO THINK THE VACCINE
MAKES THEM IMMUNE WILL STILL DIE!

WARNING!
THE NYC VARIANT and CALIFORNIA-WEST COAST VARIANT of COVID-19
are more resistant to the vaccine and are more infectious and deadly!

9:00am: Okay, we finally fell asleep after 5:00am. We woke up at 8:30am.
We took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs. We took the dogs outside.
We drank a cup of espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.

TIME TO TRY AGAIN…. Calling CA EDD to release the hold again.
Bank of America said we need to clear the problem with “our sponsor agency” and they can’t activate the card until CA EDD releases the hold…. THIS IS COMPLETE BULLSH*T! 
Screen Shot 2021-02-19 at 11.30.32
NO ONE AT BofA IS REVIEWING OUR ACCOUNT!
THEY ARE JUST IGNORING CALIFORNIA TAXPAYER’S COMPLAINTS!

And so, at 8:54am we made our first call of the day to CA EDD Customer Service number….
HER VOICE MOCKS US NOW. It’s like a bad nightmare you can’t wake up from.
Voice message. Options. Voice message. Options.
NOW WE ARE ON HOLD AGAIN…. “Wait Time Greater than 30 Minutes” MUSAC.
“Please continue to hold, your call will be answered in the order it was received.”
MUSAC.

9:30am: STILL ON HOLD. MUSAC. 
9:55am: STILL ON HOLD. MUSAC. ONE HOUR ON HOLD!

9:56AM: WE JUST GOT HUNG UP ON! NO MESSAGE! JUST A HANG UP!
DID SOMEONE CLEAR THE LINES. DID THEY DISCONNECT EVERYONE ON HOLD?

9:57 CALLED BACK AGAIN. CALL #2
Voice message. Options. Voice message. Options.
“WAIT TIME WILL BE…24 MINUTES” ON HOLD AGAIN. MUSAC.
HER VOICE CONTINUES TO MOCK US. 
“Please continue to hold, your call will be answered in the order it was received.” MUSAC.
AS LONG AS YOU KEEP GETTING THE VOICE MESSAGES YOU ARE STILL ON HOLD.
IF YOU STOP GETTING THE VOICE MESSAGES, AND JUST GET MUSAC,
YOU ARE IN A TRANSFER LOOP AND IT IS A DEAD END. YOU WILL HOLD FOREVER.
OR UNTIL YOU GET DISCONNECTED AGAIN.
STILL ON HOLD waiting….
10: 27am Connected to David at LEVEL ONE – verified info, read notes,
asked how our call on 12-16 went, we explained that we have called everyday since.
We of course are waiting to be transferred to someone else and placed ON HOLD AGAIN.

10:35am David transferred us to LEVEL TWO – ON HOLD AGAIN. MUSAC.

WEARAFUCKINGMASK!
Wear cloth face coverings in public places.

Cloth face coverings offer extra protection in places
where it’s difficult to avoid close contact with others.
Surgical masks may be used if available.
WEARAFUCKINGMASK!
Practice good hygiene.

DO THE FIVE – HELP STOP CORONAVIRUS!
1 – HANDS – WASH YOUR HANDS! with Anti-Bacterial Soap!
USE HAND SANITIZER and/or RUBBING ALCOHOL!
Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds,
and/or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 70% alcohol.
2 – ELBOW (OR SLEEVE) – Cough into it, not your hand.
Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze.
3 – FACE – Don’t touch it! Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
4 – SPACE – SOCIAL DISTANCE!
Avoid close contact (within about 6 feet) with anyone who is sick or has symptoms
(or you don’t know if they might be asymptomatic).
Keep 6 feet minimum distance between yourself and others.
This is especially important if you have a higher risk of serious illness.
5 – HOME – STAY HOME if you can! (or if it’s mandatory) STAYTHEFUCKHOME! 

Clean and disinfect high-touch surfaces daily.
REMEMBER to DISINFECT and SANITIZE
frequently-touched surfaces like:
cell phones, computers (keyboard & mouse), door handles, faucets, keys. credit cards, wallets, purses, tables, desks, countertops, light switches, knobs, dials, etc.

On this day in 1872, the Metropolitan Museum of Art (aka The Met, est. April 13, 1870), the largest art museum in the United States, now with a permanent collection of over two million art pieces, opened to the public. The original building opened on February 20, 1872, at 681 Fifth Avenue in New York City “for the purposes of opening a museum to bring art and art education to the American people.”

5:35am: Woke up early and went back to bed, and woke up again at 5:00am.
We made a cup of espresso and drank it. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.

7:00am: currently it is 45 degrees with clear skies, and it’s a little windy.
Going to be another beautiful sunny day in Southern California, while the rest of the country is freezing their asses off because of the “polar vortex” (aka CLIMATE CHANGE).

8:40am: The dogs are fed and they went outside. We drank another cup of espresso.

11:45am: We made another cup of espresso and ate two toasted sourdough English muffins with peanut butter and raspberry jam. We took the dogs outside and now it’s really windy.
So we’re chillin’ with the dogs in the Home Office, watching the “Comes A Time” podcast.

On this day in 1943, The Saturday Evening Post published the first of Norman Rockwell’s  “Four Freedoms” paintings “Freedom of Speech” on its cover to support President Franklin Roosevelt’s 1941 State of the Union address, “the Four Freedoms.”

7:45pm: Recapping the afternoon.
We watched a bunch of YouTube vids on the TV.
We worked on our Blog Posts.
We published our previous Blog Post “CV! Part 128” (not a great Friday)
We tried to take a nap but the dogs were barking at something.
So we got the dogs and tried to take a nap with the dogs so they wouldn’t bark.
We woke up and ordered sushi dinner for pickup.
The dogs got fed and went outside.
Then we got dressed and went and picked up the food.
And then we drove home and ate dinner.

On The Menu: Saturday Night Sushi! Spicy tuna cut roll, California roll, Rainbow roll,
eel & avocado cut roll with cran-raspberry-orange-pineapple juice to drink

We’ve have been wanting to re-watch the 1998 12-part HBO series
“From the Earth to the Moon”, about the Apollo Project in the 60s and early 70s
(directed by Tom Hanks) and tonight is a good time to start.

11:00pm: We fell asleep instead of watching the rest of the first episode.
And we just woke up again. We took the dog outside and then went back to bed.


SUNDAY! SUNDAY! 2-21-21
Sunday, February 21, 2021
(the 52nd day of the year)
On this day in 1885 the recently completed Washington Monument was dedicated.

Washington DC 12

“To protect park staff and visitors from the spread of COVID-19,
the Washington Monument is closed until further notice.”

The Washington Monument is the most prominent structure in Washington, D.C.
A tribute to George Washington’s military leadership from 1775-1783 during the American Revolution. He led the colonial Continental Army to victory against the British, and then served as our nation’s first President (April 30, 1789 – March 4, 1797) under the Constitution.
The monument was dedicated on February 21, 1885,
and officially opened to the public on October 9, 1888.
The 555-foot, 5-1/8″ marble obelisk was built 1848-1884.
Construction took place in two major phases: 1848-56 and 1876-84.

1:40am: We woke up again and took the dog outside.
Then we went into the kitchen, ate the leftover sushi from dinner,
and made an iced espresso to drink. Almost 2:00am Sunday now.
3:05am: Still awake and still working.

8:15am: Sunday! Sunday! We drank a cup of espresso.
We slept a little. The dogs got fed. The dogs went outside.
We ate two toasted English muffins with peanut butter and raspberry jam.
We drank another cup of espresso.

And it’s only 9:30am on Sunday.

12:00noon: THIS MORNING TOTALLY SUCKED.
We should not have gotten out of bed or turned on the news.
We needed a lot of puppy therapy just to make it to noon today.

We watched a rerun of “Sherman’s Showcase” on IFC. Created by one of our ex-clients.
Very proud of their success. It will be a very important show in Black Television History.
We remember when it was just a sketch show being workshopped at the Hudson Theatre in Hollywood thirteen years ago. That’s a long road to success. Talent survives and it takes a lot of hard work and persistence to make it happen. Very happy for them!

STILL WAITING! We certified today with the EDD for the last two weeks as required.
We are still waiting for BofA to Activate the EDD Debit Card we received 8 days ago!
The “Fraud Hold” was released by the EDD last week after 6+ hours on the phone.
WE CALLED AND EMAILED AGAIN YESTERDAY TOO. STILL WAITING!
Screen Shot 2021-02-21 at 12.44.59

11:55am Called BofA. Voicemail message. “Card is Closed”
Transfer to Customer Service Rep. (no wait) – ID for Customer Rep.
Transfer to Protection Department (Gene with an Indian Accent) – WTF? ID for Gene.
ON HOLD. 12:06pm Transfer to Risk Department (Tony) ON HOLD. ID for Tony
12:11pm Security Procedure (at each point), they need Card Number, name, security questions, and then they text you a 6 digit code and have you read it back. (this is not new)
12:14pm ON HOLD again.
12:16pm He told us we need to verify our address with the EDD.
We told him we had verified with EDD last week.
He looked at the file and then realized we knew he was telling us B*LLSHIT.
12:20pm Transferred us to the EDD Voicemail Number…. EDD Voicemail Message.
“More calls than we can answer, unable to assist you at this time, call again later.”
HANG UP ON US AGAIN. DISCONNECTED at 12:24pm. Another half hour wasted.
We sent BofA another email, cc’d with our local Congressman’s email again.

1:30pm: We made some lunch. We ate. Now we are surfing the interweb.
On The Menu: 3 hot dogs with mustard, dill pickle, carrot and celery sticks, juice to drink.


4:45pm: And a new day begins. After we ate, we slept a little.
And now calm is restored… mostly. We just have a few things to do first.

6:00pm: The dogs got fed. We went outside with the dogs on both sides.
We folded some laundry and drank an iced espresso. Still trying to chill out.

Dark star crashes, pouring its light into ashes
Reason tatters, the forces tear loose from the axis
Searchlight casting for faults in the clouds of delusion
Shall we go, you and I while we can
Through the transitive nightfall of diamonds?

11:10pm: WOW. just what I needed tonight.
Super depressed and then bang. The Playa provides.
CAMP ENVY ROCKS!

We were seriously depressed tonight. Really low.
We even went to our own Blog Post
“Depression? Questions to Ask – Before Giving Up”
and started following the steps. We drank a glass of water.
We listened to music and danced a little. We had more puppy therapy.
We were getting ready to take a shower and eat, AND THEN

Facebook Live with MotorbikeMatt! And Dani too.
Sunday night 21:21 on 2-21-21 Burning Man Webcast stuff.
They are experimenting with Clubhouse, we are waiting to see.
We participated. It was immediate. It was fun. It was not depressing.
Everything else is depressing right now. And will there be a Burning Man 2021?
They still don’t know, and it’s the end of February. TICK TOCK.
There was discussion about “the guerrilla burn of 2020” out on The Playa.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN THIS YEAR?
There is still a pandemic and the event will still not be safe. (even with vaccines)
International travel is still very restricted, and what will happen by August?
So, we were reminded of Burning Man, being there in 2017, and the experience.
And we were reminded of the webcasts and Camp Envy, both that connect us.
We couldn’t go in 2018, and we tried but didn’t get a ticket in 2019.
So the online experience reminded us of the physical event.
We have been watching the livestreams since 2013 and participating online.
Burner in absentia. The only thing next to being there. And a way to connect.

Traitor Ted Cruz returned from his vacation in Cancun, Mexico, early.
Ted doesn’t quarantine (as required) after coming back from Mexico.
Instead Lyin’ Ted does multiple photo ops on Sunday, trying to save his political career,
by pretending to care about the people of Texas. TED FLED on a CANCUN CRUZ!

Lyin’ Ted Cruz didn’t quarantine after returning from his Mexican vacation early!

United Airlines will remove it’s 777s after a massive engine failure during takeoff.
An engine fan blade broke and shattered the engine causing it to explode.
Debris fell from the sky, and miraculously no one was injured.
The pilots declared a MAYDAY and landed the plane safely. WTF?
United is the only airline using this type of engine, and will ground those planes.

Have a nice day, tomorrow, Monday, February 22, 2021…..
George Washington’s actual birthday was February 22, 1732.


Monday, February 22, 2021 – George Washington’s (actual) Birthday!
National Margarita Day!

(a cocktail containing tequila, triple sec/orange liqueur & lime/lemon juice often served in a salted glass, shaken with ice, blended with ice, “on the rocks”, and even without ice)

NOTE:
Washington inherited 10 slaves from his father when he was 11 years old.
Washington would eventually own 317 slaves at Mount Vernon when he died. In his will, he freed his slaves at the time of his wife’s death. However, fewer than half of the slaves at Mount Vernon were still owned by Washington. The slaves owned by the Custis estate were inherited by Martha’s grandchildren after her death. Washington and Custis owned slaves had intermingled, married and raised families together. The reality was that freedom for some caused family separations and created more hardships for some of his slaves.Screen Shot 2021-02-20 at 12.39.39
BLACKLIVESMATTER!

We waited until midnight and finally decided we were hungry enough to go cook.
We went into the kitchen and banged out a delicious dinner tonight.
On The Menu: Bean and cheese burrito after midnight (so meatless Monday)
with salsa verde and fresh avocado152806694_4501248756568322_8627090536396105924_o
We ate. We are (fat and) happy. And now it’s Monday.

7:50am: Good Monday Morning! It’s Monday again! StayTheFuckHome!
We slept a little. We woke up. We got the newspapers and fed the dogs.
We went outside with the dogs on both sides of their breakfast.
We made and drank a cup of espresso. Now we’re updating our Blog Post.

A case of the Mondays? It’s supposed to be sunny and 80 degrees here today!
52993365_2703169436376272_8446474498105933824_o
And suddenly, there’s a real public information campaign about COVID-19.
We are now seeing commercials for “WearAMask” and “Get Vaccinated”.
Governor Newsom is touring SoCal vaccine sites again today for another photo op.
Dr. Fauci on CBS This Morning “CoronaVirus Crisis” with Gail and Anthony (via internet)
from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases “this is historic in nature”

Six Flags Magic Mountain is talking about re-opening in Spring. Date TBD.
The Scripps Spelling Bee will return in 2021 on July 8th in Orlando, Florida.
They’re still trying to open LAUSD School for “in-person” learning during the pandemic.
BREAKING NEWS:
The Supreme Court without comment denied Trump’s legal request to keep his tax records secret from the Manhattan district attorney. Sorry, NOT SORRY, Donny!
The New York Grand Jury will see Trump’s tax returns “almost immediately.”
Lawyers for Dominion Voting Systems filed a $1.3Billion defamation lawsuit in the US District Court for the District of Columbia against MyPillow, and Trump Stooge, Mike Lindell. HAHAHAHA!

Eu2G5kIUcAUcxUQ

9:45am: Watching the Merrick Garland Attorney General confirmation hearings. It is infuriating to watch the GOP Traitors question someone so much smarter and more honest than they are.
So boring. We went into the kitchen and made breakfast. We ate bacon, strawberries, a banana and a toasted English muffin with butter and raspberry jam. And another espresso to drink. Now we’re chilling’ in the Home Office with the dogs while our Housekeeper is cleaning.

12:15pm: And we are awake again after a nap. It is a beautiful day.
We went outside with the dogs. We got the mail. And we went outside with the dogs again.

NOTE: If you’re using the Clubhouse app, your conversations ARE NOT PRIVATE.Screen Shot 2021-02-22 at 13.07.11

6:30pm: We tried to activate our EED Debit Card again today.
We called BofA again today. The customer rep didn’t help. We hung up on them.
There is still a hold on the EDD Debit Card.
We certified for benefits again yeaterday and the claim was paid by EDD today,
But the money wasn’t put on the card account. So they are really fucking with me now.
We tried calling the EDD and voice message and transfer “your wait is greater than thirty minutes”. We hung up. We’ll try in the morning.
There was another news story about BofA mishandling claims and fraud on KCAL9 tonight.
So we are (maybe) calling all the people mentioned in the story tomorrow too.

10:00pm: We took the dogs outside. And then we scooped the poop.
The dogs got fed. We were outside with the dogs on both sides.
We ordered a pizza. It came. We ate. There was a high speed pursuit.
We fell asleep. There was another pursuit.
We woke up and took the dogs outside. And now we’re chillin’ again.

On The Menu: Extra large sausage and meatball pizza delivered.

Wednesday, February 17, 2021 – ASH WEDNESDAY
“Is this a… what day is this?”
(Don’t tell your friends they have a smudge or dirt on their forehead today)
LENT BEGINS TODAY. Sorry Christians.
Lent begins on Ash Wednesday. It is a period of reflection before the Easter holiday that ends on Holy Thursday three days before Easter Sunday. There are 40 days of Lent for Christians, Anglicans, Roman Catholics, Eastern Orthodox, Lutherans, and Methodists to replicate Jesus’ sacrifice and his 40 days in the desert. They refrain from both food and festivities. Lent is also observed by not eating meat on Fridays and fasting on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday.

And Mount Etna erupted again! The second time this month!
The last time that Mount Etna erupted was on February 3, 2021.
All through January 2021 and another major eruption on December 13, 2020
Europe’s highest Mediterranean island mountain and most active volcano
is located on the east coast of Sicily, in Italy.
In the province and city of Catania, near Messina.
“Effusive (lava flows) and mildly explosive (strombolian) eruptions.
Both summit and frequent flank eruptions.”
UNESCO, named Mount Etna a World Heritage Site in 2013.
The Catania Airport is currently closed.

12:30am Wednesday: We just had breakfast for dinner at midnight.
On The Menu: 2 eggs over medium, bacon, tater bites with BBQ sauce, celery and carrot sticks, 1/2 of a large avocado, dill pickle slices, an orange, and an iced espresso to drink

Worked on finishing our Monday-Tuesday Blog Post “CV! Part 126”
President’s Day! Mardi Gras! Fat Tuesday! And now Ash Wednesday! HUMPDAY!
It’s cold and windy outside tonight. But we feel lucky we aren’t FREEZING.
We are really worried about our friends trapped in Texas. People are dying in the USA!

NOTE: We aren’t going to talk politics. But we do want to point out that the Governor of Texas and the GOP Traitors were calling for secession last month… and now they are requesting FEDERAL AID because they are totally unprepared and completely dependent on the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT every time they have an weather emergency or natural disaster.
And President Joe Biden didn’t hesitate to declare an Emergency and offer aid!

anigif_enhanced-buzz-9039-1365442568-1

8:45am: We woke up. Always a good start to the day.
The dogs got fed and went outside. The water guy dropped of the water.
We got the newspapers and scooped some poop.
We made an iced espresso and then we drank it.
We ate a toasted everything bagel with cream cheese.
Our friends who were trapped in Corpus Christi are HOME in Houston!
We are very relieved. They don’t have power, but they’re not in danger of FREEZING now.

Trump Plaza in Atlantic City is NO MORE. It was imploded beautifully this morning!

Now they’re asleep in the Home Office. Happy dogs!

Texas Governor Abbott is blaming windmills and “The New Green Deal” for his TOTAL FAILURE! There is NO POWER. No electricity, No HEAT, No water, JUST MORE COLD!
(no power to pump water and it’s freezing cold) THERE ARE LINES FOR COLD FOOD!
LINES FOR GASOLINE AND PROPANE! THEY ARE RUNNING OUT OF FIREWOOD!
And there’s a CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC too.
Millions remain without power for another freezing cold night!

THE ENTIRE TEXAS ENERGY GRID ALMOST TOTALLY COLLAPSED ON MONDAY!

During the worst energy emergency in the history of Texas, Traitor Ted Cruz and his family traveled to the luxury Nizuc Resort & Spa in Cancun, Mexico. Millions of people in the Lone Star State are freezing without electricity and/or water. Most have no water and/or are under a Boil Water Advisory. Texans are dying from the cold and carbon monoxide poisoning (at least 23 people have already died), while Ted takes his family on a tropical vacation. #TedFled

12:25am Thursday: recapping Wednesday afternoon, and evening now.
We ate some leftover pasta for lunch. We took a shower. We played with the dogs.
The dogs got fed and we were outside with them (more than once).
We watched TV and surfed the interweb. We fell asleep and woke up just before midnight.
And we still haven’t eaten dinner.

2:15am: Good morning. We ate a chicken flavored Cup O’Noodles about 30 minutes ago.
It didn’t feel right having a big dinner while people are freezing and starving in Texas….

The dogs got fed and we went outside.

2:05pm: We fell asleep a little after 9:00am and slept until about 12:30pm.
We made and drank a cup of espresso. We took the dogs outside.
Newspapers, mail, garbage cans…. DRINK COFFEE. Drink Water.
We are chillin’ with the dogs in the Home Office and listening to Pink Floyd.

It’s NATIONAL HATE FLORIDA DAY!
florida-weather-guide

Florida is the southeastern most state. It has hundreds of miles of beaches.
It is the flattest state, and the third most populous, with a population of ~21Million people.
Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de León, called it la Florida (“the land of flowers”) when he discovered it in 1513. Florida was admitted as the 27th state on March 3, 1845.
One of the 7 original Confederate States,
Florida seceded from the Union on January 10, 1861.

11:45pm: Recapping Thursday afternoon and evening.
We fell asleep with the dogs at about 4:30pm and slept for about an hour.
We took the dogs outside and they got fed supper.
Then we started cooking dinner: A DELICIOSO STEAK TACO FEAST!
We ate about 6:30pm. Then we fell asleep after dinner and woke up about 10:30pm.
We had a “nightmare” about coyotes and the fat raccoon….so just a little PTSD today.
Now it’s just before midnight and we are working on this Blog Post.
Watching YouTube vids on the TV and on the desktop again.
And we woke up just in time to see the end of another high speed pursuit!
Screen Shot 2021-02-18 at 22.09.12
DUI suspect led the California Highway Patrol on a freeway chase. He took off his shirt and was waving it out the window. He exited near Glendale off the 134 freeway, and the CHP was going to pit him, but he turned and the CHP just t-boned him. He tried to crawl to the back of the SUV and the officers broke the windows and removed him. Suspect in custody.

Today is Pluto Day! Celebrate the discovery of the NINTH PLANET!
Clyde Tombaugh, an American astronomer, discovered Pluto on today’s date in 1930.
Pluto is named for the Roman G-d of the Underworld and has five known moons.
The International Astronomical Union (IAU) changed Pluto classification to a Dwarf Planet.
IAU claimed Pluto failed qualify as a full-sized planet. A full-sized planet must orbit Sol, the sun; have a sufficient mass to “assume hydrostatic equilibrium”, and “clear the neighborhood around its orbit.” Pluto only has the first two, but not the third.
One day on Pluto is equal to 6.4 days on Earth. (6 days, 9 hrs, 36 mins)
Hundreds of dwarf planets exist, but the IAU only officially recognizes five:
Ceres, Pluto, Eris, Haumea, and Makemake.

BE KIND TO YOUR MIND! (edited from the CDC)
For informational purposes only! Consult your local medical authority for advice.
Mental health problems are common.
Here are some ways to cope with stress and stay mentally healthy:

Pause. Breathe. Notice how you feel.
Take slow deep breaths, stretch, or meditate.
Observe how you are feeling and what you are thinking, without judgment. Instead of responding or reacting to those thoughts or feelings, note them, and then let them go.

Take breaks from upsetting content
Make time to unwind. Try relaxation techniques and listening to music.
Try to do some other activities you enjoy.

146105745_1822221894601360_1200376054397546948_n

TAKE CARE OF YOUR BODY!
Exercise regularly.
Even one session of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity reduces anxiety,
and even short bouts of physical activity are beneficial.
Get plenty of sleep. Be consistent.
Go to bed at the same time each night,
and get up at the same time each morning,
including on the weekends.
Try to eat healthy, well-balanced meals.
Add healthy fats, cut sodium, bump up your fiber,
and aim for a variety of colors on your plate.
Reach out and stay connected
Talk with people you trust about your concerns and how you are feeling.
Check in with your loved ones often.
It can help you and your loved ones feel less lonely and isolated.

We reheated one chicken satay skewer with peanut sauce and a cut up Thai BBQ chicken breast and ate that for lunch with an iced espresso to drink.
And then we took the dogs outside and now we’re back chillin’ in the Home Office.

Grateful Dead – “American Beauty” November 1970
(aka “American Reality”)

“When Push Comes to Shove”
by the Grateful Dead’s Jerry Garcia and Robert Hunter

Shaking in the forest, what have you to fear?
Here there may be tigers, to punch you in the ear.
With gloves of stainless steel, bats carved out of bricks
Knock you down and beat you up and give your ass a kick.
When push comes to shove, you’re afraid of love.
Shaking in the desert, wherefore do you cry?
Here there may be rattlesnakes, to punch you in the eye.
With shotgun’s full of silver and bullet’s made of glass
String barbed wire at your feet, that do not let you pass.
When push comes to shove, you’re afraid of love.
When push comes to shove, when push comes to shove,
You’re afraid of love, when push comes to shove.

Jerry’s Guitar Solo and Groovy Band Jam!
Shaking in the bedroom, covers on your head,
Are you still in fear of the hand beneath the bed?
Scratching at the window, rapping at the door,
Maybe it’s mystery killer that you saw on channel four.
When push comes to shove, you’re afraid of love.

When push comes to shove, when push comes to shove,
You’re afraid of love, when push comes to shove.

Shakin’ in the garden the fear within you grows,
Still there may be roses to punch you in the nose, 
Twist their arms around you, slap you ’til you cry,
Wrap you in their sweet perfume and love you ’til I die.
When push comes to shove, you’re afraid of love.

When push comes to shove, when push comes to shove,
You’re afraid of love, when push comes to shove.

When push comes to shove, when push comes to shove,
You’re afraid of love, when push comes to shove.

“Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer’s lease hath all too short a date;
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimm’d;
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance or nature’s changing course untrimm’d;
But thy eternal summer shall not fade,
Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow’st;
Nor shall death brag thou wander’st in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou grow’st:
So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.”
-William Shakespeare (Sonnet 18)

HAPPY YEAR OF THE YIN SILVER METAL OX!

8c39a429664e4a31a740238d

The first day is for welcoming the deities of the heavens and earth.
It is tradition to light fireworks and firecrackers, burn bamboo sticks
and make as much noise as possible to chase off evil spirits.

The first day is also a time to honor family elders and visit the oldest and most senior members of the extended families (parents, grandparents and great-grandparents).

The Chinese (LUNAR) New Year Festival runs for 15 days,
The New Year Lantern Festival on February 26th is the final day of the festival.

For Buddhists the first day is also the birthday of Maitreya Bodhisattva, the Buddha-to-be.
They also abstain from killing animals and meat consumption on the first day.

People born in the Year of the Ox are faithful and trustworthy.
They have leadership qualities and a tendency to be stubborn and judgmental.
They also stick to their routines and they are good workers.
They are cautious, and that helps them to avoid misfortune.

Asian American Art Museum in San Francisco 

The San Francisco Chinese New Year Festival and Parade is the oldest and largest celebration outside of Asia, and the largest Asian cultural event in North America. Over 100 groups participate in the annual Chinese New Year Parade held since 1958. It is attended by ~500,000 people and watched by another 3 million television viewers.

“For over 5,000 years the Chinese have celebrated the awakening of spring with Lunar New Year festivities. In the 1860’s the Chinese in San Francisco started the Chinese New Year Parade as a way to educate their community about Chinese cultural customs. Today, San Francisco’s Southwest Airlines Chinese New Year Festival and Parade – a two week celebration including a Flower Fair, Community Fair, Jamboree, Run, and the Miss Chinatown USA Pageant and Ball – is the largest Lunar New Year celebration outside of Asia.
A San Francisco tradition since just after the Gold Rush, the Parade continues to delight and entertain the over one million people that come to watch it on the street and hundreds of thousands more who watch the live broadcast…
Nowhere in the world will you see a lunar new year parade with more gorgeous floats, elaborate costumes, ferocious lions, exploding firecrackers , and of course, the newly crowned Miss Chinatown U.S.A. and her court. A crowd favorite is the spectacular 268′ Golden Dragon (“Gum Lung”). It takes a team of over 100 men and women from the martial arts group, White Crane to carry this dragon throughout the streets of San Francisco.”

UPDATE: The San Francisco 2021 Chinese New Year Parade has been CANCELLED due to COVID-19 and concerns over large public gatherings. Instead a Parade Broadcast Special will air on Saturday, February 20, 2021, at 6 pm PST on KTVU. and a there will only be a few small live public events. Info: @ChineseParade

Prepping, inspecting, and wiring the lights in the new Golden Dragon for 2018

“The Dragon can ride mist and float on clouds in the sky, chase the storm and churn the waves in the sea, and summon wind and call for rain on the earth. More importantly, the Dragon symbolized the imperial power in the slave and feudal societies of China, and its image was exclusively used by the emperor.”

Gung Hay Fat Choy! Happy Chinese New Year!

 

“Fai chun are traditional decorations that are frequently used during Lunar New Year.
People hang fai chun (red and gold paper signs with significant Chinese characters) on their doors to create a festive atmosphere. The phrases generally signify good luck and prosperity. Customarily, fai chun are written by hand, but for convenience, printed versions are mass-produced nowadays. The decorations are either square or rectangular in shape and can be displayed vertically or horizontally.”

Tiananmen Square

According to ancient Chinese superstition, lighting fires and using knives is considered bad luck on New Year’s Day, so all food is usually cooked beforehand. It is also considered bad luck to use a broom during the New Year’s celebration.

Life is just a bowl of kumquats… Kumquats for GOOD LUCK!
The name of the kumquat fruit comes from its Cantonese pronunciation gam kwat,
which translates literally to “golden tangerine.”
The sweet fruit represents wealth and good fortune.
