HAAPPY SAAINT PAATRICK’S DAAY!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! MARCH 17th is always St. Patrick’s Day!

“Wherever you go and whatever you do,
May the luck of the Irish be there with you.”

“Here’s to being single… Drinking doubles… And seeing triple!”

First, a very important message for all my Friends:
PLEASE 
DRINK RESPONSIBLY!
GET HOME ALIVE, DO NOT DRINK AND DRIVE!
“KNOW WHEN TO SAY WHEN!”
“FRIENDS DON’T LET FRIENDS DRIVE DRUNK!”

“May the rocks in your field turn to gold.”

Saint Patrick’s Day is a cultural and religious holiday celebration held on March 17, the traditional death date of Saint Patrick (385–461), the patron saint of Ireland.

“May the sun shine warm upon your face and the rains fall soft upon your fields.”

Saint Patrick’s Day was made an official Christian feast holy day in the early 17th century and is celebrated in more countries than any other national festival!

“May the leprechauns be near you, 
To spread luck along your way. 
And may all the Irish angels, 
Smile upon your St. Patrick’s Day.”

“Here’s to a sweetheart, a bottle, and a friend. 
The first beautiful, the second full, the last ever faithful.”

“To all the days here and after 
May they be filled with fond memories, happiness, love and laughter.”

Historically, religious restrictions (due to Lent) on eating and drinking alcohol were lifted for Saint Patrick’s Day, which led the holiday’s tradition of alcohol consumption.

Holiday celebrations involve going to church, public parades & festivals, parties known as cèilidhs, consumption of alcohol, drinking green beer and/or Irish whiskey with friends, prominent displays and “the wearing of the green” and/or shamrocks (three and four leaf clovers).

“May you taste the sweetest pleasures that fortune ere bestowed, 
and may all your friends remember all the favors you are owed.”

10427222_913586882001212_2071684294545506778_n

“May the hinges of our friendship never grow rusty.”

“Four blessings upon you… 
Older whiskey, Younger women, Faster horses, More money”

Fresh beer

“It is better to spend money like there’s no tomorrow
than to spend tonight like there’s no money!”

Saint Patrick’s Day has become an International Holiday with parades and celebrations around the world. They get drunk in Tokyo, Japan too!

“May your mornings bring joy
and your evenings bring peace…
May your troubles grow less
as your blessings increase!”

We like Single Malt Scotch Whisky.

“I have known many and liked not a few,
I’ve loved only one and this toast’s to you.”

“Best while you have use of your breath 
There is no drinking after death!”

“May the winds of fortune sail you, May you sail a gentle sea. 
May it always be the other guy who says ‘this drink’s on me’.”

“A bird with one wing can’t fly.” (So have another drink!)

The Notre Dame Leprechaun is the official mascot of the Fighting Irish sports club at the University of Notre Dame since 1965. It was designed by artist Theodore W. Drake for $50 in 1964.

The Fighting Irish logo is a side view of The Leprechaun with his fists up, ready to fight. The live version is a student dressed in a cutaway green suit and Irish country hat. He carries a shillelagh (a wooden club), leads cheers, interacts with the crowd and supposedly brings magical powers and good luck to the team. (“RUDY! RUDY! RUDY!”)

“Who’s the WILDMAN now?”

“May the luck of the Irish 
Lead to the happiest heights 
And the highway you travel 
Be lined with green lights.”

“May the Four Winds Blow Them Safely Home”

“Merry met, and merry part, 
I drink to thee with all my heart.”

The Hollywood Sign (part 1)

The Hollywood Sign (part 1)

978026_532259530168247_1268699425_o

Once upon a time… HOLLYWOODLAND!

426195_376532305706675_1007860019_n
Real estate developers Woodruff and Shoults called their development “Hollywoodland” and advertised it as a “superb environment without excessive cost on the Hollywood side of the hills.”

The Crescent Sign Company erected 13 letters on the hillside facing south. Thomas Fisk Goff (1890–1984) the owner designed the sign. Each letter was 30 feet wide and 50 feet high. The sign was studded with ~4,000 light bulbs and would flash in segments: “HOLLY,” “WOOD” and “LAND” would first light individually, then the whole sign would light up. Below the Hollywoodland sign was a searchlight to attract more attention.

11695934_1113255435369757_2184994821342794125_n
The Hollywoodland sign was officially dedicated on July 13, 1923. It was not intended to be permanent. Restoration company Bay Cal Painting says on its website that the expected life was originally intended to be about a year and a half, but after the rise of the American cinema in Los Angeles during the Golden Age of Hollywood, the sign became an internationally recognized symbol, and became a permanent fixture.

16508646_1683292218364004_527327137511373248_n

The Hollywood Sign is a landmark cultural icon located in Los Angeles, California.

in Griffith Park on Mount Lee in the Hollywood Hills in the Santa Monica Mountains.

Designated a Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument on February 7, 1973

The Hollywood Sign as seen from The Hollywood Bowl

On September 16, 1932, 24 year old actress Peg Entwistle committed suicide from the top of the H. She climbed a workman’s ladder and then jumped to her death. Her ghost is reported to haunt The Hollywood Sign.

During the early 1940s, Albert Kothe (the sign’s caretaker) was driving while intoxicated and lost control of his vehicle near the top of Mount Lee. He drove off the cliff and wasn’t injured but his 1928 Ford Model A was destroyed, and so was the original 50 foot tall illuminated letter H.

hollywoodchamberofcommerce logo

The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce contracted with the City of Los Angeles Parks Department to repair/rebuild the sign in 1949. The contract stipulated that “LAND” be removed to spell “Hollywood” and all illumination would be at the Chamber’s expense (and so the Chamber opted not to replace the lightbulbs or light the sign). The 1949 repairs added years but the sign’s unprotected wood and sheet metal continued to deteriorate into the 1970’s.

The Hollywood Sign circa 1978:

16807637_1697291073630785_3959002314017480094_n
In 1978 there was a public campaign and Hugh Hefner held a fundraiser at the Playboy Mansion to replace the sign. Each letter was “sponsored” by a celebrity.
Nine donors gave $27,777.77 each (which totaled $250,000):
H: Terrence Donnelly (publisher of the Hollywood Independent Newspaper)
O: Giovanni Mazza (Italian movie producer)
L: Les Kelley (founder of the Kelley Blue Book)
L: Gene Autry (actor)
Y: Hugh Hefner (founder of Playboy)
W: Andy Williams (singer)
O: Warner Bros. Records
O: Alice Cooper (singer) donated in memory of Groucho Marx
D: Dennis Lidtke (businessman) donated in the name of Matthew Williams

The old sign was removed beginning August 8 1978, and rebuilt. The new sign made of corrugated metal on steel poles, in the exact same spot as the old sign, was completed on October 30 1978. The new sign is 5 feet shorter than the original to prevent damage from wind and other elements.

16682012_1683376528355573_4215111979665330001_n

“Cool World” (1992) is a terrible live-action/animated black comedy fantasy film directed by Ralph Bakshi and starring Kim Basinger, Gabriel Byrne and Brad Pitt.

As promotion for the film, a giant-size Holli Would cut-out was placed on top of the sign, drawing outrage from neighborhood groups and feminists. It was promptly removed.

Well, Okay then…. 503HBSeHD 3-6-2017 at 2:15pm

March 6th is the anniversary of “The Big Lebowski” 1998 release.
We celebrate the annual sacred High Holiday of Dudeism as “The Day of the Dude”

Well, take me back down where cool water flow, yeh
Let me remember things I love/Stoppin’ at the log where catfish bite,
Walkin’ along the river road at night,/Barefoot girls dancin’ in the moonlight

“To a lazy man every day is a holiday.” – Turkish Proverb

"And I'm talkin' about the Dude here: 
				sometimes there's a man who, well, 
				he's the man for his time'n place, 
				he fits right in there--and that's 
				the Dude, in Los Angeles."

“The lazier a man is, the more he plans to do tomorrow.” – Norwegian Proverb

Well, we fed the dogs and went back to sleep for an hour, and we had Brunch, and we wrote this Blog, and “The Big Lebowski” is on TV now so we’re watching it, and now it’s 3:30pm….

“Uh, I am not Mr. Lebowski. You’re Mr. Lebowski.
I’m the Dude. So that’s what you call me.
You know uh that or uh his Dudeness or uh Duder or uh El Duderino…
if you know you’re not into the whole brevity thing.”
– The Dude

We are an Ordained Dudeist Priest of The Church of The Latter-Day Dude.
(And we are available for weddings, parties and other occasions)

NOTE: There are some states and counties that are very undude. First check with the County Clerk where the ceremony is to be performed to confirm or disconfirm whether Dudeist ceremonies are cool and legal.

“I’m lazy. But it’s the lazy people who invented the wheel
and the bicycle because they didn’t like walking or carrying things.”

Lech Walesa

“Yeah man, well you know, the Dude Abides.” – The Dude

THE STRANGER: "The Dude Abides...
				I don't know about you, but I take 
				comfort in that.  It's good knowin' 
				he's out there, the Dude, takin' her 
				easy for all us sinners."

We were going to do shtuff, but tomorrow is another day.
Today is The Day of The Dude. And it’s 4:20…

I can hear the bull frog callin’ me/Wonder if my rope’s still hangin’ to the tree
Love to kick my feet way down the shallow water,
Shoe fly, dragon fly, get back t your mother
Pick up a flat rock, skip it across Green River

“Good luck tomorrow.” – “Good things come to those who wait.”

Up at Cody’s camp I spent my days, oh,/With flat car riders and cross-tie walkers
Old Cody, Junior took me over,/Said, you’re gonna find the world is smouldrin’
An’ if you get lost come on home to Green River/Well, come home

DUDEISM:

Come join the slowest-growing religion in the world, Dudeism.

An ancient philosophy that preaches non-preachiness, practices as little as possible, and above all, uh…lost my train of thought there.

Anyway, if you’d like to find peace on earth and goodwill, man, we’ll help you get started.
Right after a little nap.

March 2017!

“March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb.” – Thomas Fuller, 1732

March is the third month of the year.
The name comes from Mars, the Roman G-d of War.

Astrologically speaking, in March,
Leo (the Lion) is the rising zodiac sign and by April, it’s Aries (the Goat).

12801377_1326055424087687_3426608033148370077_n

The saying is simply an observation of the common seasonal pattern: March is the transition between winter and summer, usually starting with stormy weather and becoming mild later.

MARCH (verb or noun): walk in a military manner with a regular measured tread
synonyms: walk, hike, trek, tramp, slog, troop, stride, step, pace, tread, trudge, tromp, parade, file, process (see our previous Blog “The Company-of-Foote”)

Mario V. RIP

Rest in Peace Mario.
He danced at my wedding! He was the Life of the Party and so full of life. I love this pic! He wasn’t afraid to be “that guy” and he always had a good time and made sure the people around him did too. He loved to make people laugh! Always a joke, or a story, or a “Don Rickles” insult to make someone smile.
And Mario and Virginia were always there for their friends for as long as I’ve known them (35 years). My deepest condolences to the whole family.
May the Four Winds blow him safely home.

Obituary of Mario Veneroso (with just a little editing)
Mario Louis Veneroso (1958 – 2017) of Simi Valley, beloved husband, father, brother, friend and mentor to so many, has gone on to eternal rest. Originally from Garden Grove, California, Mario was a skilled engineer, photographer, scuba diver and trail-blazer. He loved good scotch and to be in nature, especially Yosemite. He was generous with all he had (especially humor) and his advice was sought and valued by those who knew him. He has gone to join his mother and father, Mary and Mario, and his brother, Matthew. He is survived by his wife, Virginia, his children, Christina, Nicholas, and Teresa, and his siblings, Michele, Marc, and Martin. Funeral services are on Friday, March 10th. If you cannot join, please feel free to raise a glass in his honor.

Mario, Virginia, Steve, Al & Peter at KJ’s New Years Eve Party 2017

NOTE: We had a really good time at New Years Party and it was great to see everyone, having a “last chance” with an old friend (without knowing it) makes it seem bittersweet. And then he blocked me on facebook because of politics (he was a Trump supporter) which is “just like Mario”…….  two old friends in two weeks, tell them you love them now.

Leprecauns are Irish fairies usually seen as little red-bearded men, wearing green coats and hats, who enjoy practical jokes and mischief. They are solitary creatures who make and mend shoes and have a hidden pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. If captured, they often grant three wishes in exchange for their freedom.

Have a Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
Don’t Be This Guy:

And don’t forget “March Madness”, that college basketball thing with the brackets, and betting and office pools, and it’s a DISTRACTION from really important things that matter!

Don’t get me started on college athletic programs and the money involved!
DON’T WATCH! DON’T SUPPORT COLLEGE SPORTS PROGRAMS THAT GENERATE MONEY FOR SCHOOLS AND COACHES AND NOT STUDENTS.
DON’T SUPPORT COLLEGE SPORTS PROGRAMS THAT PUT ATHLETICS OVER EDUCATION OR VIOLATE THE RULES AND/OR ETHICS OF SPORTSMANSHIP!
DON’T SUPPORT COLLEGE SPORTS PROGRAMS THAT CONCEAL AND/OR COVER-UP CRIMES BY COLLEGES, PLAYERS AND/OR COACHES!
(And that’s all I’m going to say about that, for now)

FlashbackFriday! Janis Joplin’s Psychedelic 1964 Porsche 356c Cabriolet

FlashbackFriday!

Janis Joplin’s Psychedelic 1964 Porsche 356c Cabriolet

Janis Joplin’s Porsche 356c Cabriolet in the Lobby of the Grammy Museum at L.A. Live

Janis Joplin purchased a used 1964 Porsche 356c Cabriolet for $3500 from Beverly Hills car dealer Estes-Zipper in 1968. She paid Dave Richards, one of her roadies, $500 to give the Porsche a psychedelic face lift. Completed in one month and titled “The History of the Universe.” The car and its paint job (a base coat of Candy Apple Red with portraits of Big Brother and the Holding Company, her astrological sign Capricorn, “The Eye of God” design on the hood, butterflies, jellyfish and a Northern California scene on the side doors) became one of the most recognizable vehicles in San Francisco.

The Porsche was stolen in 1969 and partially repainted before being found.  When the stolen car was recovered, the paint job was restored because they were able to remove the new paint from the clearcoat with little damage to the original artwork underneath.

Janis Lyn Joplin aka “Pearl” RIP (January 19, 1943 – October 4, 1970)

After Janis’ death in 1970, the car was used by her manager Albert Grossman. And then in 1973 ownership of the car went to her siblings, Michael and Laura Joplin in Ohio, who shared it for about 30 years. Michael rebuilt the original engine and returned the car to the original dolphin gray color (although some say it was originally oyster white). Working from photographs, artists Jana Mitchell and Amber Owen, restored Dave’s original artwork in 1990 and the 4-speed manual transmission was rebuilt and restored. The family loaned the Porsche to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame when Janis was inducted in 1995 and it was exhibited in museums until 2015. We saw it and took the above photograph in the Lobby of the Grammy Museum at L.A. Live in Los Angeles in 2013 (see our previous Blog).

NOTE: Dec. 10, 2015 – A 1964 Porsche 356 that once belonged to the rock singer Janis Joplin sold at auction for $1.76 million (the highest price ever paid for any Porsche 356 at auction). The car had been expected to sell for between $400,000 and $600,000. The sale price includes a 10% commission for Sotheby’s auction house. According to the family, the proceeds from the auction will be used to support social programs in Janis’s memory.

“Oh Lord, won’t you buy me a Mercedes Benz?
My friends all drive Porsches, I must make amends.”

Sotheby’s did not say who bought Janis’ car and the buyer has not come forward.

To some, even trying to achieve it is an exercise in futility.

A Case of the Mondays?

A Case of the Mondays?

505a6fff2febd930ed58b43775ab3a8e

Garfield don’t like Mondays.

Monday is the first day of the week.
Monday is the day of the week before Tuesday and following Sunday.
Monday comes from the Latin diēs Lūnae “day of the Moon”.

c6fe398d34ec96a3e8cfb41b3f8166af

“Monday, Monday”…. A Case of the Mondays?

From THE URBAN DICTIONARY:
A phrase used to describe someone that has a bad mood
when he or she comes to work or school on Mondays.
OR
A phrase that someone uses if he or she wants
to get their ass kicked by their fellow co-workers or school mates.

(a study published by a team of psychologists at Stony Brook University
says a better turn of phrase might be “a case of the weekdays”)

Another Monday, Another Blog…. this one all about Monday.

Hey Trump and McConnell:

Trump’s Golden Rule: He who has the gold, makes the rules.

The United States has elected a CRIMINAL CON MAN with no morals or ethics. Trump is ignorant and can barely read. He doesn’t know history, politics, world geography, science or correct grammar. He surrounds himself with the worst people. He has ties to Putin and Russia. He is guilty of treason, fraud and sexual assault. Trumpsters take your victory lap today, because the future doesn’t look good for people who won’t wear a red cap and everyone else. Trump belongs in prison not the White House.

Office Space is a 1999 American “cult” comedy film written and directed by Mike Judge. It satirizes the everyday work life of a 1990’s software company, focusing on a few individuals fed up with their jobs. The film has a cult following and depicts ordinary workers in a sympathetic way and contains themes familiar to white-collar workers, the workplace, and the workforce in general.
