Saturday morning…. storm warning!
Happy Summer Solstice!

12:30am: Okay, that was good. Took the day off Friday and drove the dogs to the beach and back. Had an okay bacon cheeseburger for lunch. Didn’t take any pictures. Got hot and sweaty and uncomfortable. Came home an took another shower.

92439123_1216567998719680_9141907193128288256_o

So, we took a nice hot shower at 4:00am on Friday morning thinking that would help us fall asleep, but it didn’t, we may have slept for maybe an hour and we woke up and fed the dogs and got the newspapers. Then we loaded the dogs cages into the car and got everything ready to go before they knew what was happening. We almost called it off (because we were so tired), but instead we loaded the dogs into the car and had an adventure

AND NOW HERE’S OUR CRAZY RANT OF THE DAY:

We didn’t really enjoy our trip, and it was very stressful for the dogs and for us…..
And the hostess at the hamburger stand WASN’T WEARING HER MASK ON HER FACE!
We parked and walked the dogs to the restaurant, it was hot and the dogs were still crazy from getting there, and then she had her mask around her neck, and was talking and handling the food and credit transaction WITHOUT A MASK! We were standing outside on the curb, and the exchange happened outside but WTF?! We wore a mask and we were 20 feet away with the dogs…. and when someone from the business came out and started approaching the dogs, we asked her nicely not to pet them (and without saying it – to stay the fuck away). And then we walked back with the food and it was hot and we were really angry but not saying anything, and we were stressing very hard about it.
WE HAVE TREMENDOUS ANGER TOWARDS PEOPLE WHO AREN’T BEING 100% SAFE! AND THAT IS BECAUSE WE HAVE ELDERLY LOVED ONES WHO MIGHT DIE IF EXPOSED! AND IT ONLY TAKES ONE CARELESS EXPOSURE – THERE’S NO SECOND CHANCE! AND SOME PEOPLE ARE CARELESS, AND SOME PEOPLE COULDN’T CARE LESS. AND THERE’S A STUPIDITY AND AN INCREDIBLE AMOUNT OF DENIAL ABOUT STUPID BEHAVIOR! YOU MIGHT DIE! YOUR FAMILY MIGHT DIE! YOUR FRIENDS AND ASSOCIATES AND NEIGHBORS MIGHT DIE! WE DON’T WANT THAT TO HAPPEN. And so our lunch was “just okay”, and actually it was really horrifying.

Screen Shot 2020-03-19 at 03.38.22

And to be honest, it’s the longest period of time we’ve been out of the house since the beginning of March, and the longest drive we’ve made in months, with the added pressure of managing, transporting, and protecting the dogs. It was really really stressful to begin with and then MY BIGGEST TRIGGER being exposed by someone without a mask happens right in front of me, TEN HOURS LATER AND WE ARE STILL BEYOND MAD.
And we drove home, with some real stop-and-go traffic on the 101 Freeway (the “Ventura Highway”), unloaded and took care of the dogs, took a shower, fell asleep and took a nap, woke up and fed the dogs, and worked on the Blog to work this out. And that was Friday.
It’s 1:00am Saturday morning now. We haven’t eaten dinner, but we ate some mini pretzels and a little ice cream and a few triangles of Toblerone chocolate, and we only ate half the bacon cheeseburger and fries for lunch because we just couldn’t. FUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCK. (and thats not even enough Fucks)

measlesquarantine

Okay, we’re going to go eat and/or sleep now we think. FUCKFUCKFUCK.
4:15am: SLEEP WON. We slept a little and just woke up and took the dogs outside.
And we didn’t even eat dinner.

NOTE: We revisited this mini-RANT on Saturday at 4:30pm and we’re still mad.

Saturday morning. Today is the day!
Trump’s Rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma! MAGA!
105023520_10218042617960369_5406513817441201850_n

CBS started non-stop coverage yesterday on Juneteenth! Morons without masks!
The dumbest segment of our society on display…. RACISTS, BIGOTS, ANTI-SEMITES!
TRUMPERS. The Cult of Trump. These stupid people worship him.
They think he’s Jesus, And a Trump Rally is everything they dream of….
Stupid people (just like them) gathered together to worship the orange turd.
And now add the CoronaVirus! And remember the virus and wearing a mask is a Democratic political hoax. SO PLEASE TRUMPERS, DON”T WEAR A MASK TODAY!

2:00pm: And we were awake and the dogs got fed and we got the newspapers.
And we were outside, and we went back to bed, and we woke up again.
And we were outside again with the dogs and we scooped the poop, and we are doing a load of laundry, and now we are updating the Saturday Blog Post.
And we are hungry and thinking about some breakfast/lunch food now.

What’s up under the desk? Such a Good Boy!

5:00pm: Okay, so we watered the new tomato plants and the Little Boy loves the hose! So he got all wet and dirty while he was having fun in the water and so we had to give him a rinse off bath and he loves being dried off, so he’s a very happy boy night now. And we were amused and had fun too.  (and love my run on sentences …. hard to care about proper grammar these days)

We still haven’t really eaten today. We had a celery stalk with peanut butter and some mini-pretzels as a snack but we need some real food right now, and then we’ll feed the dogs their supper. And they had a late breakfast and a lot of snacks already today, so they’ll be fine for a little while longer.

8:00pm: So we made some food, and ate the food, and the dogs were outside and they got fed, and we were outside again, and now we are all chillin’ in the Home Office again.

On The Menu: Breakfast for dinner again: 3 eggs over medium, bacon, quesadilla, celery&carrots, dill pickle, raspberries, and cran-raspberry-orange juice and an iced espresso to drink

Move along….. nothing to see here.

“The story I’m about to share with you about Joe Biden is special — in fact, I’m fairly certain I’m the only living person left who actually witnessed it firsthand. It was about 16 years ago, and I was a young rabbi, brand-new to Delaware, on my way to lead a shiva minyan — a worship service following a death of a Jewish person. I was from California. Back then, I didn’t know Claymont, Delaware from Scranton, Pennsylvania.
A quick bit of background: When someone passes away in the Jewish faith, we observe seven days of mourning, called shiva. We gather a group of ten Jewish adults together — a minyan — to say the Mourners’ Kaddish. It usually happens in a person’s home — somewhere intimate. In this case, the deceased individual — her name was Mrs. Greenhouse, of blessed memory — had not been a person of means. She had lived in rent-controlled senior housing in a tall high-rise building off of Namaans Road. Her apartment had been too small to fit everyone into, so we conducted our worship service in the building’s communal laundry room, in the basement of the high-rise.
We assembled the ten elders together, and it was in this most humble of places that I began to lead the kaddish. Toward the end of the service, a door at the back of the laundry room opened, and who walks in but Senator Joe Biden, his head lowered, all by himself. I nearly dropped my prayer book in shock.
Senator Biden stood quietly in the back of the room for the duration of the service.
At the close of the kaddish, I walked over to him and asked the same question that must have been on everyone else’s mind: “Senator Biden — what are you doing here?”
And he said to me: “Listen, back in 1972, when I first ran for Senate, Mrs. Greenhouse gave $18 to my first campaign. Because that’s what she could afford. And every six years, when I’d run for reelection, she’d give another $18. She did it her whole life. I’m here to show my respect and gratitude.” Now, the number 18 is significant in the Jewish faith — its numbers spell out the Hebrew word chai, as in “to life, to life, l’chayim!” But it’s also a humble amount. Joe Biden knew that. And he respected that.
There were no news outlets at our service that day — no Jewish reporters or important dignitaries. Just a few elderly mourners in a basement laundry room. Joe Biden didn’t come to that service for political gain. He came to that service because he has character. He came to that service because he’s a mensch. And if we need anything right now when it comes to the leadership of our country — we need a mensch.
I know this is such a simple, small story. But I tell it to as many people as will listen to me.
Because I think that, in their heart of hearts, when people are trying to think about the decision they’ll make this year — this is the kind of story that matters.
Joe Biden is a mensch. We need a mensch.
Thanks for reading.”
— Rabbi Michael Beals of Delaware

Tuesday, June 16, 2020

We have to recap Tuesday.
Awake at 6:00am again – dogs barking- can’t wait to be fed…..
it sucks to wake up angry and frustrated. And the dogs got fed.
And we went back to bed, or tried to sleep.

After 1:00pm calm was restored.
We were outside with the dogs.
June gloom until late in the afternoon.
We cleaned and sanitized the kitchen.
We did a load of laundry.
And we marinated some steak for dinner.
And we fed the dogs their supper.
And we took the dogs outside.
And we hung out and played with the dogs.
And we had the dogs in the office.

There was a slow speed pursuit of a black SUV, and it was so boring even the cops gave up on it. All the media cut away and the dude just kept driving we guess….

And then we made dinner. Skewered the marinated tri-tip steak and broiled it.
On The Menu: Steak-on-a-Stake (see our previous Blog Post for the recipe)

2:00am: Okay, we’re up again. Awake again.
And then we worked on updating this Blog Post.

And we just watched “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood” (the Mister Rogers film with Tom Hanks) on TV. And it was weird, but good, but weird. And good.
We also enjoyed the Mister Rogers documentary film that came out last year.
Both are worth viewing.
And we just took the dogs outside at 4:00am.

8:00pm: It was a nice day. We woke up around 7:30am and took care of the dogs. We were outside and they got fed and we were outside again. We got the newspapers and the mail. We ate a toasted bagel with cream cheese and drank a little juice and some espresso. The gardener was here today and he did his thing, and the dogs were chill, and we all took a nap. And we woke up and we fed the dogs their supper, and we were outside on both sides of the feeding, and now it’s nighttime.

A SHORT RANT ABOUT FACEBOOK:
Yesterday I was reprimanded by an Administrator of a group I’ve been a member of for years for correcting a newbie on the rules about selling and promoting a known scammer, and then the newbie cried “why are you being mean to me?”, and other people who had no context called me a troll for telling her to remove the post. So, though it hurts to remove past posts with comments from friends who have passed on. I removed most of my posts and comments because the group is no longer private and now caters to unknowns who have visited a renaissance faire once.
Not going to name the group or the Admin. I’m not flouncing or leaving the group. No protest is necessary. I posted this comment on a thread in another group and crossposted it here on my page and not in the offending group. Not into the drama. Not going to cry “why are you being mean to me?” The group was private and that changed. Too many strangers and people who were never at the Agoura site posting and commenting now. Better to take my ball and go home than to fight with children.
Check the group privacy of any Renaissance Faire group you’re in. If it is public, that’s a clue. Then check the friends list, and if it’s hundreds of people you don’t know and have no connection to the faire, then you’ll know.

On The Menu: Breakfast for dinner at 11:00pm

Thursday, June 18, 2020

9:30am: Good morning! We didn’t sleep well again. We had a sore shoulder all yesterday, and it’s a little better today…. We were up very early and then went back to bed and woke up again around 8:30am. The dogs were outside early and then outside again. Then they got fed and we were outside again. And we got the newspaper.

The construction continues across the street and the hammering and noise is never-ending. One of our neighbors has a huge property and Thursday is landscape day and it take hours of heavy equipment just to mow the fuckin’ lawn. Tomorrow is gardener day for our other neighbor, so there is always loud and obnoxious daytime neighborhood noise now.

And planes are flying again, private jets and commercial flights from Burbank and Van Nuys and LAX. More helicopters too. Yesterday we say a Chinook heavy lifter with two props flyover the house, must have been a water dropper for the fire department.

MAN, WE ARE BORED.
STAYING HOME ALL THE TIME, ONE DAY BLEEDS INTO THE NEXT.
TV, INTERWEB, DOGS, FOOD, LAUNDRY, CLEANING.
RINSE-LATHER-REPEAT. 

We are trying to keep the Blog Posts current and have been writing constantly, and posting regularly: THIS IS PART 47 FFS! Three months of forced lockdown and quarantine, with no end in sight, as the number of cases continues to rise, and the city, county, state, and country continue to re-open regardless of the consequences.
THERE IS NO CURE! THERE IS NO VACCINE! THERE IS NOT ENOUGH TESTING!
WE ARE NOW SEEING THE “MEMORIAL DAY SPIKE” and infections will increase as the “PROTEST SPIKE” begins and the “RE-OPENNG SPIKE” hits.
And another 100000+ people could die in the next two months!

11:45am: Almost noon. We got the mail. We were outside with the dogs and then we played inside and now they are napping. We had a cup of espresso this morning but we haven’t eaten since we had breakfast before midnight. So we are thinking about food and what to do next.

Nothing happened. Dogs got fed. We were outside. There was a pursuit. A stolen vehicle pursuit ended with a foot bail in the neighborhood, and now there are many cop and news helicopters hovering as they search for the suspect, and no one covered it.

On The Menu: 3 beef soft tacos with fresh made guacamole and an iced espresso

ARE WE “RE-OPENING” TOO SOON? – YES WE ARE!

“between 800 and 1,000 Americans are going to die every single day.
We’re going to get another 100,000 deaths by September. So, that’s a catastrophic cost”

Oregon just halted their premature re-opening as reported cases spiked!

Many other states are seeing cases spike too. The “Memorial Day Spike” is still part of the first wave of this disease! 116000 Reported Deaths and another 100000 people could die before September!  Trump and the Federal Government aren’t even talking about it anymore. They are more than ready to let you and your family die a horrible death. Cases are spiking in South Carolina, Florida, Alaska, Arkansas, California, Kentucky, New Mexico, North Carolina, Mississippi, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas, Utah and Puerto Rico. Arizona is in the middle of a health emergency and ran out of hospital beds….

THERE IS STILL NO FEDERAL TESTING OR TRACKING! States are on their own.
Some health figures are not being reported correctly…. and so many people haven’t even been tested, so there really is no way of knowing how bad the spread really is!

There are still shortages, medical supplies and personal protective equipment (PPE) are still not available in sufficient quantity to everyone who needs them. Now they need glass vials if there’s a vaccine. Masks, swabs, gowns, gloves, face shields, ventilators, and all kinds of other equipment. And there are also drug shortages thanks to crazy medical advice from a certain “not a doctor”, who promotes medicines that his family and friends are invested in that don’t do anything to cure the virus and in fact may fucking KILL the patient. So what else do you have to lose?

WHAT A DISASTER! The news isn’t even showing how bad it was! How was this allowed to happen? Someone should be fired. The Chief of Police needs to resign! If she doesn’t resign, she should be fired. More than 180 businesses were looted and/or damaged! There was no warning for merchants and no police plan from start to finish. Total FAIL! She can try to worm her way out and explain it, but it was a total fail. Anyone who watched the looting live knows there was zero police response and it was a total tactical failure. They looted guns, jewelry, shoes, clothes, sunglasses and then set fires with impunity, while the SMPD watched. They filled their cars and drove away. And then they arrested peaceful protesters. We’ll also add that this exposes the lack of emergency preparedness in case of other events, such as an earthquake. Is there a plan for police and fire response when a big one hits? Has it been reviewed and tested? Obviously there wasn’t a plan for looting or protests… And who let the protesters walk back into the city after it was on fire with looters running wild? And why were police cars left unguarded on the streets? Again, because there was no preparation or plan. How much does each car cost? And who is going to pay for it? What happened to the weapons inside? They are posing for pictures with the burning and vandalized Sheriff’s cars by the way. Tell me one thing the SMPD did to prevent looting or vandalism?
We were posting live as it was happening.
There is no defending the Chief of Police and her total failure to protect the city. No one was killed, and that was just lucky, because it was total chaos. The looting started before 1:30pm and continued until after dark. SMPD never got control and they even failed to protect the Third Street Promenade, which they had fenced off and where they had posted units. Leaving Santa Monica Place unguarded after the looting started was just one more failure. Stores were completely looted and set on fire before the police even knew they were being robbed. Anyone watching any of the news reports or live cams knew exactly what was happening in real time, and the police should have been stationed on every corner, and the motorcycle units should have been responding instead of being parked on Montana.

FlashbackFriday – We took this pic five years ago!

3:00pm: Remember we said “burnout”, well we needed just a little time.
Very little time.
So FUCK. Is it Sunday yet?
No, it’s only Friday afternoon and we’re already saying FUCK.

We got woken up by the dogs barking more than once this morning….. FUCK.
WHEN WE GET WOKEN UP REPEATEDLY IT PUTS US IN A VERY BAD MOOD.

6:00pm: We took an afternoon nap, and got woken up again. FUCK. FUCK. FUCK.
The mobile dog groomers came this morning and 3 of our dogs got prettied.
The gardener showed up today, so then the dogs had to be contained all day.
And the plumber came back for another visit to finish fixing the toilet.

NOTE: We cannot imagine the risk of being a “service” person, having to work regardless of health condition or concerns, and having to interface with people in their homes, who may be or are sick… and once again hats off to all the doctors, nurses and other healthcare workers in the line of fire! – and there is still no plan or leadership.

CORONAVIRUS! EXTRA! EXTRA! WEARAFUCKINGMASK!

EXTRA! EXTRA! CORONAVIRUS! WEARAFUCKINGMASK!

Zero Contact. That is the only way to be safe.
Don’t be the guy defending/rationalizing/ignoring the danger.
Nothing has changed since DAY ONE.

95617783_10157020090066722_8181758870331326464_n

IT IS NOT MAGICAL PROTECTION! WEAR A FUCKING MASK!

YOU DON’T KNOW WHO IS INFECTED!
YOU REALLY DO NOT KNOW! HAVE YOU BEEN TESTED?
ZERO CONTACT IS THE ONLY WAY TO BE SAFE!

WEARAFUCKINGMASK! WEARAFUCKINGMASK! WEARAFUCKINGMASK!
STAYTHEFUCKHOME! STAYTHEFUCKHOME! STAYTHEFUCKHOME!

SO SINCE YOU WON’T LISTEN TO ME, HERE IS MEDICAL ADVICE FROM EXPERTS. YOU SHOULD READ THIS AND NOT IGNORE IT.
Since at least April 2020, the Center for Disease Control has recommended that everyone wear cloth masks in public to help slow the spread of COVID-19. Studies that found even people without coronavirus symptoms, but who may still have the disease, could transmit the virus through close interactions with others, especially through speaking, coughing, and sneezing.

Screen Shot 2020-03-19 at 03.38.22

Surgical masks (the easiest to get your hands on) are designed to protect others from an infected person. Their structure allows them to capture bodily fluids excreted by the oral and nasal cavities (i.e., from coughing and sneezing). However, they are not designed to protect the wearer from infected people.

A systematic review of published data (MacIntyre and Chughtai, 2015) reveals that masks do not prevent or reduce the infection in community settings when they are the only measure to prevent infection. The reason is that the effectiveness of facemasks is most likely impacted by compliance issues.

3woii6

There is consistent advice emphasising that if you are going to wear a mask, you must wear it appropriately. This means:

  • You must wash your hands before and after wearing or removing it.
  • Do not touch the front of it – the part potentially exposed to the infection.
  • Avoid reaching underneath to scratch your nose or mouth.
  • Wear it most of the time and discard as soon as it gets damp or moist.

Otherwise, wearing masks could give a false sense of security. Research shows that compliance with these guidelines decreases in the household settings with each day of mask use, which makes long term use a challenge.

Essentially, that means people become more and more lax about the correct usage as time goes on. This is particularly relevant in the current situation because measures to suppress the spread of COVID-19 are necessary for long periods of time – not just a few days, but weeks and possibly even months.

Many risks associated with cloth masks

Cloth masks are commonly used in developing countries and many non-standard practices about their cleaning and reuse have evolved. Most studies about cloth masks were conducted before the development of disposable masks. The penetration through cloth is reported to be high. In one study, it was found that 40-90% of particles are able to penetrate cloth masks.

Cloth masks let through more particles

A large prospective RCT study (MacIntyre et al., 2015) showed that moisture retention, reuse of cloth masks, and poor filtration may even result in increased risk of infection. They showed that cloth masks resulted in significantly higher rates of infection than medical masks, and performed worse than the controls.

97409677_267275441315522_8053193147494170624_n

Cloth masks resulted in higher infection rates

The virus may survive on the surface of the cloth masks. Consequently, self-contamination through repeated use and improper doffing is possible (e.g. contaminated cloth mask may transfer pathogen from the mask to the bare hands of the wearer).

Cloth masks facilitate self-contamination

Although any material may provide a physical barrier to an infection, if it does not fit well around the nose and mouth, or the material allows infectious particles to freely pass through it, then it will be of no benefit and also unsafe.

In conclusion, although wearing a mask could be beneficial when the wearer is properly trained on how to use it and adheres to all other mask etiquettes, there are other measures available to protect against spreading the virus. Wash your hands, do not touch your face, and practice physical distancing.

DO THE FIVE – HELP STOP CORONAVIRUS!
1 – HANDS – WASH YOUR HANDS! Wash them often!
2 – ELBOW (OR SLEEVE) – Cough into it, not your hand.
3 – FACE – Don’t touch it! Don’t touch your eyes, nose or mouth!
4 – SPACE – SOCIAL DISTANCE! Keep your distance (6 feet or more)
5 – HOME – STAY HOME if you can! (or if it’s mandatory)

DON’T PANIC! – REMAIN CALM!

AND GO WASH YOUR HANDS!
KEEP SOCIAL DISTANCING!
Stay at least 6 feet away from other people! Wash your hands often! Use hand sanitizer! Don’t touch your face, eyes, nose or mouth! Cover coughs and sneezes with your elbow!

Why did the United States refuse the World Heath Organization test kits?
Why did the Trump Administration wait to act?
Why did the Trump Administration tell the Washington state doctors not to test?
Why did the GOP Republicans call it a “Democratic Hoax?”
Why didn’t the CDC test kits work?
Why did they wait to get new test kits from Roche? (~400000 available soon)

There is a RUSH TO RE-OPEN cities, states and the country.
ARE WE READY TO RE-OPEN?
IS THERE ENOUGH TESTING?

HAVE WE STOPPED THE SPREAD?

THIS IS WHY THEY WANT YOU TO THINK IT IS SAFE:

Trump and his administration want you to think that 1000 deaths a day is normal. They want you to accept that 116000+ American Deaths as “just the cost of doing business.”

THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC IS NOT UNDER CONTROL!
GROCERY & FOOD PRICES ARE SPIKING! BIGGEST PRICE JUMP IN HISTORY!
THE COUNTRY IS NOT READY TO RE-OPEN!
There’s no testing. There’s no vaccine. People are dying everyday from this disease!
The CoronaVirus is still spreading! People are infected without knowing they are!
“Social Distancing” and Masks/Gloves are not a guarantee of immunity!

We did have to venture out and leave the house today to go to the doctor.
We worked out the telephone appointment problem and talked to a doctor on the phone yesterday. We scheduled an in-person appointment after we spoke. We drove over to the office at 1:00pm today and saw the doctor and had blood drawn at the lab.
SO MUCH BETTER THAN OUR LAST VISIT TO THE DOCTOR (at the beginning of March).
We parked, and we were screened by a ten of nurses as we entered the lobby of the building. They checked our temperature and asked us questions, and then we got a sticker! We rode up the elevator alone. We were in the huge waiting room with only one other person and the administrative person (and there was a plexiglass wall between us). We were greeted by the nurse, blood pressure, temp, weight, Everything Was Great!
We spent 30 minutes with the doctor, and had a visual and then a physical exam. We talked and it was so much better than the last visit with our regular doctor. He was out of the office all week, so they cancelled our phone appointment with him, and it turned out to be a great thing! So we went to the lab and there was only one other person there with us and the nurse/lab tech. She checked us in and then drew 6 vials of blood. We didn’t eat all day, no food, no drink, our fast starting at midnight, and we only drank water until after our lab appointment.

The Doctor’s Office

NOTE: We really weren’t prepared for how many people were out and driving around at 1:00pm in the afternoon today! We drove on the 405 and the 101 freeways for the first time in a long time. There was actual traffic and businesses were OPEN. Many had nice big new banners to advertise the fact that they were OPEN. And we drove into Van Nuys and saw some of the damage after our appointment. A lot of graffiti, merchants cleaning up and boarding up, and today most merchants with plate glass windows who hadn’t been boarded up, were boarding up their storefronts, and not taking any chances.
The Police can’t protect you or your property when they are busy somewhere else.

They blocked off Van Ness (and a lot of other streets after 7pm and trapped the curfew breakers. Some ran onto the roof. Anyone still on the street is being arrested now and the vehicles will be impounded. LAPD is not playing tonight.

MEDIA is working with LAPD so you don’t see the actual police work, just a big show of force. And the media helicopters either keep losing their signal or they are blackingout their picture. One air reporter called it the “TV Wall” – so there is censorship happening.

BUT THAT IS THE ONLY “SOCIAL DISTANCING” ANYONE IS TALKING ABOUT!
HOLY SHIT! THERE IS A CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC,
IT IS SPREADING, IT KILLS PEOPLE, AND THERE IS NO CURE!
So we turned to CNN’s talking heads and “on the scene” reporters,
and they are debating whether the military should be involved.

The dogs were fed breakfast and supper. We got the newspapers and the mail.
We scooped the dog poop and groomed the Little Boy and the Little Girl.
We did laundry.

There was a 5.5 magnitude earthquake near Ridgecrest, California. We laid down to nap and fell asleep, and we didn’t wake up until after it happened. And then we checked Facebook and everyone had posted about it.

Accident! Just before 10pm,
LAPD cruiser T-Boned a Tow Truck at full speed and 8 people were injured, 2 critically. They needed the “jaws of life” to get the officer in the passenger seat out of the car.

Thursday, June 4, 2020 LAS VEGAS RE-OPENS TODAY!

The D Hotel and Casino Las and Golden Gate Casino in Las Vegas opened at midnight! Other hotel and casinos will also open for business this week. “Some casinos will have curbside pickup, where you can just drop off your money without going inside.”

Sometimes you need three spicy beef tacos at one in the morning.
On The Menu: 4 spicy beef soft tacos
100957985_3717960854897120_77552764174991360_n

And we eventually finally fell asleep. We have not been sleeping, and when we do, we are not sleeping well with good reasons.

10:30am: We fed the dogs and went outside. We got the newspapers and brought in the trashcans. We are doing another load of laundry. And we are drinking an iced espresso.

Brunch at 1:00pm!
On The Menu:
 Scrambled eggs, bacon, a quesadilla, with orange juice and an iced espresso to drink.
101700880_3720185648007974_1017492028893691904_o

We took a short nap.

Dinner at 10pm.
On The Menu: NY Steak, broccoli, mini-croissants, and a mango nectar drink
101683734_3720414374651768_5152055301549064192_o

And we ate, surfed the interweb, and fell asleep for a little while, and woke up again after midnight and then we were up all night on the interweb retweeting and blogging….
so it’s actually Friday at 5:45am now.

NOTE: A jet just flew over the house! 5:45am arrival, after almost no air traffic for two months. We also saw a couple private jets departing for parts unknown yesterday. Probably “high-rollers” going to Las Vegas since the hotel owners launched a huge public relations campaign about the re-opening of the casinos.

WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA?

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

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

Barack Obama’s Second Inauguration



UPDATED: Did you hear what happened in Boston?
In Boston, during a verbal dispute, an unarmed teenage boy was forcefully hit in the head with the butt of a weapon by local law enforcement.
Word of the incident spread quickly, and a large number of locals gathered in the street where the incident had happened to protest almost immediately.
As the crowd grew, angry protesters shouted slogans; some business owners, fearing property damage, shut their doors. The local authorities called for uniformed backup; backup came, well-armed.
The assembly was deemed “unlawful,” and the crowd was ordered to disperse. The protesters began to throw dirt clods in response.
In response, multiple uniformed law enforcers fired on the crowd. The first protester to die was a black man and the authorities justified the shooting by claiming that they “feared for their lives.”
Scroll down to read the most intense part…





boston-massacre

THE BOSTON MASSACRE 1770

The above events happened in the year 1770, the authorities were British soldiers, the protest would later be called the Boston Massacre, and the first protester killed in that conflict was Crispus Attucks, a black man considered by many to be a heroic American patriot and the first casualty of the American Revolution.
If, while reading this story, you found yourself siding with the authorities and thinking that the protesters should have dispersed when ordered, and/or that the protesters armed with dirt and sticks deserved to be met with deadly force by armed law enforcement, be aware that you chose the side of the tyrant King George III, not the American patriots.
Ponder that.

WTF? June 1. 2020 at the Lincoln Memorial WTF?

This is what we’re up against. This is who they are:
POLICE BRUTALITY AND POLICE VIOLENCE IS AN EVERYDAY REALITY!
Everyone has a camera! Everyone is watching now! 

Austin police have killed a young man by shooting him in the head with bird shot rounds wrapped in cloth, and continued to shoot the medics carrying his body. They shot a known pregnant woman in the stomach, then stormed and abducted her from a medic tent. They maced young children during a peaceful daytime protest.

Detroit police have brutally beaten, tear gassed and arrested my friends peacefully protesting. A curfew is set from 8pm to 5am city wide.

Rockford police dragged people from their cars and beat them last night.

Minneapolis police shot at people filming them on their own balconies.
Los Angeles Sheriffs also shot at people filming them from their homes.

An NYPD officer called a woman a “fucking bitch” and threw her on the ground. She went into a seizure and had to go to the emergency room. Then more New York cops rammed into crowds of protesters with their cars.

An Atlanta couple last night had their tires slashed, windows broken, and were dragged out of their car and tazed.

Chicago police announced a curfew and then raised the bridges out of downtown. Demonstrators were trapped and at the utter mercy of CPD roundups. A police supervisor ordered on the radio, “Gas ’em all.” Over 1,000 people have been arrested.

Everywhere, journalists are being indiscriminately targeted and arrested. A Minneapolis photojournalist is blinded permanently in one eye after being hit by a less lethal round.

They’ve maced children. They’ve torn off a woman’s hijab. They’re turning off their body cameras and hiding their badge numbers.

This is just what’s been documented. Imagine what hasn’t been.

The true nature of American policing has been revealed for the world to see. I have never seen brutality on such a massive scale. They don’t care if you’re peaceful. They don’t care if they’re on camera.

Black and brown youth are the leaders on the ground. They are the leaders of our future. Black and brown youth are the people who are bleeding, getting beaten, and being thrown into jail. This is trauma that will last their whole lives.

To the bail funds. To the phone lines to demand release. We have to protect our people.

If you’re going out there again please, and I beg you, be safe.

EZclwfYU8AEGx-d

Long Beach, California

NOTE: The camera angle makes it look like he’s pointing at the little girl, he’s actually threatening innocent protesters. We wouldn’t want you to think the Long Beach Police would shoot a small child.



Your black friend is trying to be ok.
Your Black friend in the past 30 days has watched a Black man get shot dead while jogging (Ahmaud Arbery), a Black woman get shot dead while sleeping (Breona Taylor), and the murder of George Floyd by a Minneapolis police officer. Your Black friend has also listened to the President of the United States use segregationist words as a veiled threat.
Your Black friend is trying to be ok.
Please don’t ask us about the looting.
Please don’t chastise us about the rioting.
Please don’t tell us that all lives matter.
Please don’t minimize our fear.
Please don’t bring up Black on Black crime.
Please don’t ask “What about Chicago?”
Please don’t say “if you’d just act like (A Wildly Successful Black Person… Usually Oprah, Obama, Colin Powell, Denzel or Will Smith)”. Please don’t judge us
Your Black friend is trying to be ok.
Listen to your Black friend.
Empathize with your Black friend.
Support your Black friend.
Pray for your Black friend.
Just let your Black friend know you really care.
Your Black friend will remember who truly had their back during this difficult time. They will remember who was more concerned about a looted Target. They will remember you posting a thinly veiled and racially offensive meme. They will remember you calling looters “Savages”. They will remember your silence about their Black life and the Black Lives of others.
It’s real easy.

Do whatever you can to help your Black friend out because your Black friend is trying to be ok…..

DO YOU HAVE A BLACK FRIEND? DO YOU HAVE MORE THAN ONE BLACK FRIEND?

#BlackoutTuesday



Updated June 4, 2020:

One of the men accused of murdering unarmed black man Ahmaud Arbery in the US state of Georgia used a racial slur after shooting him, a court has heard. A Georgia state investigator said Travis McMichael used the slur and an expletive as Mr Arbery lay on the ground. Mr Arbery was jogging when he was chased down by Mr McMichael and his father in Brunswick in February. The case caused widespread outrage after footage was leaked online. Travis and Gregory McMichael are facing murder charges. Another man, William Bryan, faces charges of murder and criminal attempt to commit false imprisonment.

UPDATED Friday, June 19, 2020 

It’s no accident that:

You learned about Helen Keller instead of W.E.B. DuBois

You learned about the Watts and L.A. Riots, but not Tulsa or Wilmington.

You learned that George Washington’s dentures were made from wood, rather than the teeth from slaves.

You learned about black ghettos, but not about Black Wall Street.

You learned about the New Deal, but not “red lining.”

You learned about Tommie Smith’s fist in the air at the 1968 Olympics, but not that he was sent home the next day and stripped of his medals.

You learned about “black crime,” but white criminals were never lumped together and discussed in terms of their race.

You learned about “states rights” as the cause of the Civil War, but not that slavery was mentioned 80 times in the articles of secession.

Privilege is having history rewritten so that you don’t have to acknowledge uncomfortable facts.

Racism is perpetuated by people who refuse to learn or acknowledge this reality.

You have a choice.

Happy Juneteenth!

Los Angeles County remain under CURFEW from 6:00pm – 6:00am
Other areas have curfews at 1:00pm and 4:00pm today (like Santa Monica)

“Don’t have to be ashamed of the car I drive
I’m just glad to be here happy to be alive”
– The Traveling Wilburys

BlackLivesMatters cancelled a planned protest in the Hollywood area, but there are protests happening in other locations around town and in Southern California.

We woke up and fed the dogs. And we went outside a few times.
And we got the newspapers, the mail, and the morning deliveries.
And we took a shower. And we cleaned the bathtub…. for a bath later.

92439123_1216567998719680_9141907193128288256_o

We ate a couple English muffins with peanut butter and raspberry jam
and drank two cups of espresso with MochaMix. It’s around 2:00pm already.

FUCKERY OF THE DAY:
We tried to get a rescheduled phone appointment with our Doctor who cancelled on us yesterday… actually they called us again, and they gave us a phone appointment with a different Doctor, who we have never seen or even met, and he tried to call us from a blocked private number, so it went to voicemail, and we didn’t get a call.
So now we are waiting for the appointment people to call us back so we can reschedule the call we missed because they didn’t tell us the Doctor would be calling from his home.
And we changed the setting on our phone, pretty much guaranteeing we’ll get called from idiots who can’t figure out an area code or keypad.

And the construction continues…. hammering, nail guns, heavy equipment, backup alarms (BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP) and a lot of yelling in Spanish.

AND THEN THIS HAPPENED
and FUCKERY OF THE DAY WENT TO A WHOLE NEW LEVEL!

Protesters at the White House were tear-gassed, shot with rubber bullets, and beaten by Park Police and Uniformed Secret Service with help from the Washington D.C. Metropolitan Police without warning so Trump could make an insane fascist speech and “dominate the streets” for a ridiculous Photo Op holding a bible upside-down at the church across the street.

EZdsXsUUEAAHyZZ

TRUMP WILL VIOLATE YOUR CIVIL RIGHTS FOR A PHOTO OP!
(ps. You’re holding the Bible upside down Donny)

EZewJD-XkAAm_He

Hitler and Twitler, the Twitter Troll

Why did the chicken cross the road?
To trespass on church property, for a publicity stunt.

TRUMP CREATED AN INTERNATIONAL INCIDENT WHEN PARK POLICE ATTACKED THE AUSTRALIAN PRESS! A news crew from Australia was attacked without cause like other members of the media and the peaceful protesters they were reporting on so Trump could have a Photo Op! This is a clear violation of United States civil rights and the First Amendment. He also used the Church and the Bible for partisan politics.

78133129_10156844627345583_2750908793398231040_n

Some Police Departments DID NOT get the message.

We have seen horrible pictures of severe injuries to peaceful protesters caused by rubber bullets, pepper balls, and tear gas canisters, which we don’t want to share here. And  WHY DO ALL THESE POLICE DEPARTMENTS HAVE MILITARY ASSAULT UNIFORMS AND EQUIPMENT AND ENDLESS ROUNDS OF TEARGAS TO USE ON PEOPLE WHEN SCHOOLS AND HOSPITALS DON’T HAVE ENOUGH SUPPLIES OR PPE? 

And there was a protest in Hollywood and one in Van Nuys in the San Fernando Valley, even though they were supposed to be cancelled…. and so there was LOOTING in Hollywood and Van Nuys too. The Los Angeles Police Department adjusted their tactics and arrested a lot of the looters, along with any protester out after curfew. There was a lot of damage, and a couple fires, but after five days they finally figured out how to close the streets to trap them. But they still caused a lot of damage and loss today.

They’re looting the Gower Gulch Rite Aid in Hollywood on TV!
Cops arrived fast, just the organized gang folks got stuff.
Really funny when the cops show up and there are people coming out the door.

101188964_3711363972223475_376136588490440704_o

Looters at the Rite-Aid at Gower Gulch in Hollywood

Don’t be inside when the cops arrive. Looters got arrested at last! The police were able to catch people inside businesses and they were ready to go after them Monday, instead of letting them run wild and destroy with impunity.

Suspects in Custody after TWO High Speed Pursuits Tonight!

LAPD is tracking and chasing down looters – second pursuit tonight!
They are trapping the looters, stopping them in their cars, searching them for stolen property, making arrests and impounding their vehicles.
They are also arresting anyone on the streets.

Screen Shot 2020-06-01 at 21.09.25

Looters and Their Vehicles in LAPD Custody in Hollywood!

How long can they hold this country under Curfew?
The protests will continue and will increase in size and frequency!
The anger only escalates as Trump incites violence and chaos in our streets.
ATTACKING PROTESTERS WILL NOT DE-ESCALATE THE ANGER!

White Supremacists and Outside Instigators have been identified within the protests, and bad elements are using the events as cover for their criminal behavior. There are also people questioning whether piles of bricks are being placed to provide ammo so the authorities can move in on protesters and label them as violent.

‘Matthew Lee Rupert, 28, of Galesburg, Illinois, was taken into custody on Monday, according to the U.S. Attorney’s office. He’s been charged with civil disorder, possession of unregistered explosives, and participating in and organizing riots….The federal complaint against Rupert cites videos that he live-streamed on Facebook in which he brags about renting hotel rooms in Minneapolis and rioting. In one video cited in the complaint, Rupert is allegedly seen handing out explosives and encouraging protesters to throw them at police.” – VICE.COM

AND PEOPLE ARE STILL SICK! AND THEY ARE NOT SOCIAL DISTANCING AT ALL!

CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC!
Will there be a SPIKE after the protests? OF COURSE!
No Social Distancing! So many people without masks in close contact!
Police and protesters exposing each other, confined prisoners held for arrest, police lined up next to each other…. THEY ARE ALL GOING TO BE SICK IN 2-14 DAYS!
Cases were already increasing with the premature “re-opening”, and now this.

As of Tuesday June 2, 2020:
54900+ Reported Cases and 2350+ Reported Deaths in Los Angeles County
4250+ Reported Deaths in California

PUBLIC STATEMENT FROM “ANTIFA”
IN RESPONSE TO THE THREATS ISSUED BY
UNITED STATES PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP

Dear Mr. Trump:
Let us be perfectly clear:
“Antifa” isn’t an organization.
There’s no membership, no meetings, no dues, no rules, no leaders, no structure. It is, literally, an idea and nothing more.
Even the claim of this author to represent “Antifa” is one made unilaterally for the purposes of this communication and nothing more;
there is no governing body nor trademark owner to dispute the author’s right to represent “AntiFa.”
“Antifa” is a neologism constructed from a contraction of the phrase “anti-fascist.”
The truth is, there’s no such thing as being “anti-Fascist.”
Either you are a decent human being with a conscience, or you are a fascist.
The ostensible president of the United States has, today, openly declared that he is a fascist, and that he intends to turn the military power of the United States into a fascist tool.
Now there is no question,
and we can stop pretending that this man represents anything but the worst in humanity, which his supporters embody. And that is the only effect his words will have.
It will likely be no problem for LEO to identify the author of this document, who also has maintained the “AntiFa” page on Facebook since founding it in 2017.
The author of this document is unconcerned with that inevitability because neither that author, nor this document, has been involved in a crime of any sort in any way.
But, since both the “president” and the media insist on acting as though “AntiFa” is this big, scary organization, the author supposes it’s time for “AntiFa” to make a statement.

Thus:
“AntiFa supports and defends the right of all people to live free from oppressive abuse of power, whether that power is unjustly derived from wealth, status as an employer, or political popularity. Particularly, AntiFa defends and supports the right of oppressed and marginalized people to protest, march, and engage in civil disobedience in pursuit of justice. While it is never our intent to engage in violent or destructive behavior, we cannot and will not take responsibility for telling people how they are allowed to be righteously outraged. We prefer and encourage non-violent action. We also understand that some people just aren’t feeling that nice anymore. Their feelings are entirely justified, and it is neither our role nor our privilege to tell them otherwise.
Mass civil disobedience is what happens when people say they’re hurting and whoever’s hurting them refuses to stop. Stop hurting them. Fix your broken systems.
Get real and meaningful psychological evaluations and background checks – police in some nations have to pass a more stringent test to carry pepper spray than any police department in the US, or the US military, have in place. As a direct and possibly deliberate consequence, our military and paramilitary personnel simply cannot be assumed to be fighting in the interests of the people of this country.
We’ve all seen the photos. This destruction and burning and looting is largely the behavior of outsiders; white people taking advantage of the situation both to enrich themselves by looting under cover of the protests, and to provide excuses for uncontrolled fascist elements within our military and police forces as plausible cover for killing more black, brown, and poor people without fear of sanction.
The so-called “accellerationists” who have committed to ensuring that, any time a marginalized community stands up and demands justice, construct a narrative of criminality and destruction that white bigots and affluent oligarchs who benefit from our broken system to validate their bigotry and injustice retroactively.
They are successful in this for two reasons: because people like you are easily manipulated in your banal, self-serving ignorance, and because people like you are more than happy to passive-aggressively reap the benefits of pretending to believe this destruction is the act of the oppressed.
This game has gone on for decades on an endless loop since the very dawn of the civil rights era, and we the people are saying ‘no more.’”
And that, “President” Trump, is your solution. No more.
Get the dirt out of your law enforcement and your military.
Get the dirt out of your government and administration.
Ideally, resign now and take your VP and cabinet with you; Nancy Pelosi isn’t a great deal of improvement, but she’ll only be president for a few months.
You can’t arrest 100 million of us, sir, and you would be well-advised not to try.
If you think that targeting and “making an example of” the author of this document will get you anywhere, you may rest assured that this author is more than prepared to allow his real name to be used as a rallying cry for justice and civil disobedience from coast to coast.
It is time for you and everyone who thinks like you to understand that whether black, red, brown, white, or any other color, Americans are done living in a nation of empty platitudes and broken promises.
Traditionally, this type of document is accompanied by a list of “demands.”
Here are our demands:
-Universal single payer health care, without regard for citizenship status.
-Universal basic income WITH a federal job guarantee, under which the federal government becomes the “employer of last resort.” Involuntary unemployment is a function of profiteering by fascist capitalist oligarchs who are willing to sacrifice the lives of others for their own enrichment. It must end.
-The abolition of “right to work laws” which do exactly the opposite of ensuring anyone’s right to work.
-Publicly funded higher education.
-Robust and effective social welfare programs to include child care, education, employment training and counseling, parenting skills training, and life skills training including fiscal education.
-A requirement that functional proficiency in media, political, and economic literacy be demonstrated to graduate high school.
-The creation of a publicly funded non-partisan media source to serve as the primary source of government information, to be overseen and managed day to day by a coalition of well-known communicators, political scientists, and other experts in propaganda to strip ALL bias from official information before it is broadcast.
-Federal charges of treason filed against anyone willfully and knowingly attempting to minimize public perception of the impact and risks of the coronavirus.
-Reform of whistleblower laws to ensure they have teeth, and particularly to ensure that a whistleblower, acting in good faith, is not identified to the public, ever.
In the end, Mr. “President,” the simple reality is that “AntiFa” isn’t a thing.
You can’t end it, you can’t arrest it, and you can’t silence it.
Nor, in any decent nation, would the attempt even be made.
“Antifa” means “Anti-Fascism.” The only position that opposes that is fascism. In the end, there is no “organization” that you can “declare terrorists.” You, sir, and yours, are the terrorists, and your victims are done putting up with it. America is not, in spite of having an openly admitted fascist as “president,” a fascist nation.
We’ve had wars about this.
The fascists are 0-2.
Please, Mr. “President” – let’s not try to make it 0-3? Because it will never, ever be 1-2, and none of us wants to see the death toll from your attempt to make it so.
Best Regards, “AntiFa.”

BREAKING NEWS!
The Miami Herald reports that CoronaVirus was in Florida in DECEMBER 2019!

WARNING! WARNING! WARNING!
The CoronaVirus has MUTATED AGAIN!
  • The coronavirus that emerged in Wuhan, China, has mutated and the new, dominant strain spreading across the U.S. appears to be even more contagious, according to a new study.

  • The new strain began spreading in Europe in early February before migrating to other parts of the world, including the U.S., becoming the dominant form of the virus across the globe by the end of March, researchers at the Los Alamos National Laboratory wrote.

  • If the coronavirus doesn’t subside in the summer like the seasonal flu, it could mutate further and potentially limit the effectiveness of the coronavirus vaccines being developed by scientists, the researchers warned.

5:30am: Up All Night (again)

12:45pm: We are tired. No sleep. Crushing anxiety and just a little stress. And we are alone with the dogs, which is fine. Did the usual morning stuff. Take the dogs outside, feed the dogs, play with the dogs, get the newspapers, get the mail, and interweb time.
We almost went to the market early this morning, but we didn’t want to go out into public and deal with other people, so we didn’t get dressed, and we stayedthefuckhome.

NOTE: We have a list of stuff to get when we go shopping, but nothing is an immediate need. We have plenty of food and drink here to go at least another week if we had to, so we’ll wait until tomorrow. STAY HOME STAY SAFE!

7:30pm: We slept a little. Took an afternoon nap with the dogs.
And they’ve been outside, played, had their supper and went back outside again.
We just made an iced espresso (just what we needed right now)
and it’s time to think about dinner, or food, or something to eat.
We had a toasted bagel with cream cheese and an espresso for breakfast.
And we just ate a small dill pickle. But that’s all we ate today. (surprise!)

NO NEWS IS GOOD NEWS. Or, watching the news is just MORE BAD NEWS!
The Local News is TOTAL SHIT! Except for the high speed pursuits…. and there were three today, but they didn’t go long or far, and didn’t get very good coverage.
People are going stir crazy, and the criminals are wanting to get back out there.
Can’t even watch or listen to Trump, even the soundbites make me furiously angry.
There’s this clear pattern of DOUBLESPEAK, BLATANT LIES, FULL-ON MAKE-BELIEVE, AND TOTAL DISHONESTY that is a constant whenever he or his cronies appear.
We don’t trust his doctors, the CDC, the FDA, the “CoronaVirus Task Force”, or anyone else connected to Trump, his crooked administration. or the Republicans in Congress.

11:15pm: We fell asleep again sometime around 9:00pm,
and we just woke up again, and now it’s time for dinner after midnight.
On the Menu: NY Steak, sautéed onions, steamed broccoli and carrots, and brown rice.

Dinner at Midnight

Thursday, May 7, 2020

7:00am: We have been up all night/morning again. WideAWAKE.
And we just had an espresso to start the day.
And the dogs are fed and happy. They’ve been outside twice. They’re here in the office driving me crazy with licking, scratching, itching and dog stuff this morning.
We thought about going to the market again this morning
and then we decided we still have enough food for today, so maybe tomorrow.

1:00pm:  We went back to bed and woke up at 10:00am. We got the mail and brought in the trashcans.  Now we are hanging out with dogs on a HOT Thursday afternoon and thinking about lunch. Steaming rockin’ LIVE MUSIC performed by James Intveld on fb right now!

We took an afternoon nap, woke up and then the dogs out. And then we went back to bed. We woke up and the the dogs got fed supper. Instead of cooking, we ordered dinner.
On The Menu: Delivery from Maria’s Italian Kitchen – Pepperoni pizza, chicken and broccoli pesto pasta, a Caesar salad and fruit punch Gatorade to drink.

Trump was briefed about the Coronavirus Threat 4 months ago!
He called it a hoax, a conspiracy theory, and then ignored and lied about it!
TOTAL FAILURE! Trump fired the NSC Pandemic Team in 2018!

“In January 2020, the Trump administration was advised that immediate action was required to stop the spread of COVID-19. According to NIAID Director Dr. Anthony Fauci, “there was a lot of pushback” to this advice. President Trump declined to act until March 16th. Epidemiologists now estimate that, had mitigation measures been implemented one week earlier, 60% of American COVID-19 deaths would have been avoided.”

Of course, we were already awake, the dogs had already been outside and were fed.
So we got the newspapers and said “Good Morning” to the guys in the driveway.
They will be working in the backyard most of the day doing the hard labor stuff.
We had juice, an espresso, and a toasted bagel with cream cheese this morning.
We got the mail and we took the dogs out again a
nd now they’re asleep here in the Home Office.

It’s a beautiful day today and it’s going to get HOT later.

And now it’s HOT and there’s a Hot Wind blowing. (Earthquake weather?)


And the day went by. So, we fed the dogs and we were outside in the sun.
The gardeners did a nice job clearing the backyard of stuff
and they pruned one tree all the way down to the sticks.

It’s THROWBACKTHURSDAY again!

This was originally posted on November 9, 2016 (the day after the election):
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.
SHUT THE F*CK UP DONNY! – 10 Reasons to DumpTrump:
Trump is an Ignorant, Racist, Sexist, Anti-Semetic, Pathological Liar!
Trump mocks the Disabled, war heroes, POWs, Veterans and Gold Star Families!
Trump disparages Women, Mexicans, Latinos, Muslims and African-Americans!
Trump sexually assaults women and is an alleged rapist!
Trump lies, cheats and steals from hard working people!
Trump insults world leaders and threatens our international alliances!
Trump has business dealing with Russia, China, Mexico, Cuba and Saudi Arabia!
Trump admitted to not paying Federal Taxes and still hasn’t released his TAX RETURNS!
Trump is responsible for the BIRTHER LIE and continues to insult President Obama!
Trump denies Climate Change and calls it a Hoax perpetrated by China!

12:00Noon – Oh, it’s NOON!
Noon on Thursday and it’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood!
We have taken care of the dogs.
We have taken care of the newspapers and daily mail.
We are doing a load of laundry (the whites).
Do Peanut M&Ms and an espresso count as breakfast?

GOOD DOGGIE!

1:13pm We were just outside with the dogs and now we need a nap.

4:00pm So, we took a nap. It was a good nap. We needed it.
And we brought in the trashcans. Thursday is trash day.
It’s really warm here today, and it’s going to get hotter this week!
(it’s also very windy, it was last night, and it will be tonight too)
We were just out in the backyard with the dogs and it’s a beautiful day.
But it’s very bright, very bright outside in the sunlight….
We made an iced espresso and moved back inside to the Home Office.

And except for the Peanut M&Ms this morning we haven’t eaten yet. So now it’s time for lunch (well breakfast/brunch). We had breakfast for dinner last night, so maybe dinner for lunch today…. stay tuned.

Watched a couple episodes of “First We Feast – Hot Ones” on youtube and still haven’t eaten (well we did eat a fistful of mini-pretzels a little while ago). And yes, we’re hungry. And now it’s 5:45pm and time to feed the dogs again. They’re here in the office, as usual, the Big Boy is on the bed, the Little Boy is under the desk by my feet. The little girls are “on vacation” until tomorrow, so it’s just me and the two boys again tonight.

 

6:30pm The dogs are fed. We were outside for a while before and after.
NO NEWS IS GOOD NEWS. Or, watching the news is just MORE BAD NEWS!

8:00pm We still haven’t eaten, but now it is time for food. Music from @JackieVenson Live at http://www.sweetwatermusichall.com was just what we needed this evening! BRAVA!
(No “Jeopardy” at 7:00pm tonight because of the NFL Draft, tonight it’s at 9:00pm)

The NFL Draft is happening now. The National Football League still wants to play ball.
Normally there would be a huge week long party in Las Vegas and lots of televised coverage and promotion, this year LAS VEGAS IS CLOSED! And everything is online.
They still don’t know if there will be a 2020 season….
despite what the Owners and Trump want, this is not going to be over by August!
THEY WILL LOSE SO MUCH MONEY IF THERE IS NO FOOTBALL SEASON!
And Disney is currently saying they probably won’t reopen the theme parks until 2021.

9:30pm And we cooked and ate our dinner (we’ve been eating one meal a day for a week)
On The Menu: Chili and cheese burrito with avocado, chopped onion, and salsa verde!

11:30pm After dinner we played with the dogs and took them outside, did a little grooming on the Little Boy, and we just put them to bed for a little while, so we can finish this Blog Post and do a few household chores.

The Muslim holiday of Ramadan begins today (April 23) at sundown.
And ends on May 23rd. (“Thirty Days in the Hole! Thirty Days in the Hole!”)
Ramadan celebrates that time Allah contacted the prophet Mohammed,
and give him the verses of the Quran.
Muslims must abstain from food and drink between sunrise and sunset for 30 days! Fasting also includes any and all addictive substances such as smoking, vaping, shisha and smokeless tobacco. Fasting is a sign of spiritual devotion and connection with other Muslims. During daylight hours, they are not even permitted to consume water. Kissing is not forbidden, but they are supposed to abstain from intimacy during the day while fasting. And after sundown, anything goes!

Trump and the Republicans lied about it! And so did FoxNews!

Why did the United States refuse the World Heath Organization test kits?
Why did the Trump Administration wait to act?
Why did the Trump Administration tell the Washington state doctors not to test?
Why did the GOP Republicans call it a “Democratic Hoax?”
Why didn’t the CDC test kits work?
Why did they wait to get new test kits from Roche?
Why did he put Mike Pence in charge?

In case you missed it, Here is Yesterday’s BREAKING NEWS again!
There were Two Coronavirus DEATHS in Northern California (Santa Clara County)
on February 6 and 17, three weeks before the first official US death from the virus!
“there was community spread happening in California as early as mid-January,
if not earlier than that”
WTF?!
Good, they just figured that out, feel so much better now.

Trump suggested that scientists may want to explore bringing UV light inside the body to kill a Covid-19 infection, or should consider the use of disinfectant that “knocks it out in a minute … by injection inside or almost a cleaning.” (NO, REALLY, HE SAID THAT TODAY!)

Friday, April 24, 2020

We might have slept. We might not have slept.
We were up really early today with a plan.

8:00am We went to the market this morning at 6:00am to avoid the crowd. Because last time we went, there were just too many people and not enough space. There were a lot fewer people at 6:30am, but there were still guys stocking the aisles and a lot of people (customers and employees) moving around in close proximity to each other. And the checkout cashier was wearing his mask wrong (the under the nose, not covering the nose, which is the reason to wear the mask)!
TOO MUCH STRESS INVOLVED! Could not wait to get out of there. So we came home, sanitized everything, put it all away, and then took the dogs outside and then fed them.

Oh, and it was HOT. In the 90s today where we live.
We slept for awhile and wasted most of the day away. We also did a load of laundry.
We made breakfast-lunch around Noon.
On The Menu: Toasted egg bagel with cream cheese, bacon, strawberries, raspberries, red grapes, and an espresso.

10:00pm Tiki Tiki Tiki! We just finished a Tonga Hut Zoom Party! Tiki Tiki Tiki!

This was fun! Our fourth Zoom experience. This one with maximum (50) people and no moderator/leader to speak of, so it was kind of a free-for-all, just like at a bar. Most everyone was dressed for a Tiki party and had a cocktail or three during the chat session. ALOHA! And Good Shabbos! Be well! Stay healthy!

We made dinner at 11:00pm.
On The Menu: A big steak taco with avocado and salsa verde

STAYTHEFUCKHOME! STAYTHEFUCKHOME! STAYTHEFUCKHOME!
