On this day in 1947, India became a free and independent nation.

12:15am: Recapping Saturday night. One more Saturday night.
Hey Saturday night! And we didn’t do sh*t. We stayed home.
We didn’t go to the beach. We didn’t go out to dinner.
We didn’t go anywhere. BORING. We may have taken a nap too.
We watched TV, we surfed the interweb, we worked on Blog Posts.
We played with the dogs. We took the dogs outside.
They were very good dogs and we chilled all night.

My Sunday feeling is coming on over me,
Now that the night is over.
Got to clear my head so I can see.
– “My Sunday Feeling”
by Jethro Tull

2:20am: We fell asleep for two hours,
we woke up, we took the dogs outside.
We ate two slices of cold leftover pizza.
We drank an iced espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.

5:00am: Oh, we’re awake again. Good morning. Whatever.
We ate a piece of ice cream cake for breakfast.

7:25am: We took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs.
We took the dogs outside again. We got the newspapers.
And now we’re chillin’ in the Home Office on Sunday.

It’s World Honey Bee Day!

We are watching: “Chasing Mavericks” on HBO. 
(a film that we have not seen before, which is rare)
We have seen the “Mavericks” documentary surf film before.
Some great ocean photography and cinematography!
Spoiler Alert! EPIC WIPE OUT! Great cameos by famous surfers too.
And it’s corny and clichéd, but the waves are monstrous.

It’s V-J Day! Victory over Japan Day!
On this day in 1945, Imperial Japan surrendered ending World War II.
On September 2, a formal ceremony and signing of the surrender
was held aboard the USS Missouri in Tokyo Bay, Japan.

National Lemon Meringue Pie Day

Recapping Sunday afternoon, evening, and night.

and we had major pain in our leg. And it required some special attention.
So we weren’t in the mood to sit and write much. And nothing happened.

Another BIG EARTHQUAKE in HAITI…. 7.2 total disaster
And Tropical Storm Grace is coming! HURRICANE time.

On The Menu: Frozen banana with chocolate syrup.

It’s ROLLER COASTER DAY!

5:50am: The morning after.
Monday, Monday…. Read our previous Blog Post “A Case of the Mondays?”

Oh, we didn’t sleep well last night. And yesterday kind of sucked too.
We had some weird sciatic nerve pain from sleeping in a weird position….
and we had major pain in our leg. And it required some special attention.
So we weren’t in the mood to sit and write last night.
And we did not want to cook. So we were going to have dinner delivered again,
but that didn’t happen, so we just made a quesadilla with salsa for dinner.

And we were awake and not able to sleep this morning. Until we crashed hard.
But we woke really early and we’re wide awake on Monday now.

On this day in 1962 Ringo Starr joined The Beatles.

PEACE AND LOVE!

“Everything’s gonna be alright”
“It’s going to be a good day”
“BE AN ADULT. GROW THE FUCK UP!”
“It’s a beautiful day!” “Be a WINNER!”

7:30am: We took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs. We took the dogs outside.
We got the newspapers. We did a load of laundry. We drank an iced espresso.
Drink Coffee. Drink Water. We ate a toasted bagel with cream cheese.
Our leg is better and the pain is almost gone this morning. 

11:45am: Monday. We made breakfast.
The housekeeper is here. We took the dogs outside.
Now were all chillin’ in the Home Office. And we got the mail.

Recapping Tuesday afternoon, evening and night.
SUPRISE! Your day is f*cked. Okay whatever. 
The housekeeper cleaned and left. The roofers are still working across the street.
The “blinds guy” came and picked up the window covering that needs repair.

We ordered an early pizza delivery. We took the dogs outside. The dogs got fed.
We finished watching “The Mandalorian” season 2 on Disney+ and
we watched a good show, “Fake Famous” on Showtime, about Interweb celebrity.

On The Menu: Extra-large pizza w/sausage & meatball and an antipasto salad
202702554_4868195276540333_8666898174156305350_n

And now everything is fine again. FUCK. The dogs got fed early.
We ate a slice of cold leftover pizza. 

10:00pm: Just more nothing. We took the dogs outside.
We watched a short “slow speed” pursuit for about 10 minutes.
The suspect hit a spike strip, tires went flat, he finally pulled over,
and surrendered. Suspect in custody. Not even a little exciting.
We took the dogs outside again. We made some quick food.
We were hungry all night long, and we ate something at Midnight.

It’s Wednesday! Have a nice day.

“You are not open to hearing input from others
because your mind is made up.
In fact, you want others to listen to what you have to say
and to your way of doing things.” 
– today’s horoscope

5:55am: We were up past midnight. We fell asleep. We woke up before 5:00am.
We’ve prepped the dog’s breakfast. We got the newspapers.
We made an iced espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water. 
We ate a toasted bagel with cream cheese.

NOTE: This Blog Post was originally only going to be for the weekend….
but not much is happening, except the Delta Virus Surge.
So, we decided to make this a “week long” Blog Post.

239866956_10222238497725613_2482877711385266527_n

6:30am: We took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs.
We took the dogs outside. And the Little Babygirl didn’t want to eat…..

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZ

11:40am: We went back to bed for an hour. We woke up.
We took the dogs outside. We scooped the poop. We got the mail.
We took the dogs outside again. It’s gray and drizzly out. Not hot today.
We haven’t done anything…. how is it almost noon? WTF?

NOTE: THERE IS ANOTHER WORDPRESS BUG IN THE EDITOR NOW.
THE MARGINS ARE OFF. SOMETHING NEW AND FUCKED UP HERE.
NEVER GOING TO PAY THEM FOR THIS.

3:35pm: We took the dogs outside again. And we made some lunch.
The gardener is here, so the dogs are in the bedroom napping now.

On The Menu: Steak Fajitas (for National Fajitas Day) for lunch.

5:25pm: Okay, the pool guy came and went.
We took the dogs outside before he arrived.
And we just prepped the dogs’ supper.
And we drank an iced espresso and made another…..
we almost took a nap today, but too much stuff interrupting it.
Amazing, that there’s nothing happening,…. right?

AND THE FUCKING MOSQUITOES ARE KILLIN’ US!!!!
We keep getting new bites, and we’re using repellent with DEET at home now.
And the dogs are getting bit and they keep scratching at their bites.

6:50pm: We took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs.
We took the dogs outside again. It’s been that kind of a day.

7:35pm: We got dressed and went out to pick up dinner.
On The Menu: Sushi. Spicy tuna cut roll and a California roll. 
239428008_5046628562030336_4410027316857515960_n

8:20pm: And we did our “good deed for the day” just now.
The neighbor’s dog got out and was in our front yard.
So we went out front and the dog ran back into the garage.
And then we called the neighbors and told them. Dog is okay.
And our evening of nothing continues….

235473874_1458927644464007_6428615691480165712_n

So there was police action last night,
someone got shot in the leg but got away.
They thought he was hiding in an auto repair lot,
so the LAFD was called to saw open the gates.
The police dog was released
and they found a guy sleeping in a Rolls Royce,
but no criminal…….

We slept a little and now we’ve been up for a couple hours.
We took the dog outside. We prepped the dogs’ breakfast.
We got the newspapers. We took the dogs outside.
We fed the dogs. We took the dogs outside again.
We drank a cup of espresso. We made an iced espresso.

We took a shower and got dressed. And now we have to go do stuff….

5:50pm: And we’re back. We went to the dentist for a cleaning.

We bought five PYREX cups because we wanted to buy them.
And they were on sale for 25% OFF too. 5 for $10.50 – DEAL! 
232861781_5049379855088540_2047496680351295424_n

And we came home and took the dogs outside.
Now it’s time for the dogs to eat supper.

10:00pm: The dogs are making me crazy tonight.
So we went to the dentist and had a deep cleaning today.
And they told us not to eat anything hard or crunchy.
So we scrounged up, cooked, and ate an easy (and soft) dinner.

On The Menu: Spaghetti with a garlic vodka sauce

Unvaccinated Tourists were not allowed to board a Royal Caribbean cruise yesterday.
And there was a COVID-19 Outbreak on a Carnival Cruise Ship that departed from Texas.
According to reports, the Carnival Vista didn’t report the 27 NEW CASES (26 Crew, 1 Passenger – ALL VACCINATED!), but the Government of Belize did. The other passengers were not notified! The ship has since returned to Galveston, Texas, and the passengers returned to the general public of the United States. 
The crew members were cleared to return to work. No problem. 

TravelAlert-614x201

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

The TSA just extended the Mandatory Mask Mandate until January 18, 2022.
Airline passengers and travelers on public transportation are required to Wear A Mask.
And Texas Governor Greg Abbott has tested positive for COVID-19. HAHAHA.

Los Angeles County Public Health:
Masks are already required indoors, and now at large outdoor “mega events”
Some venues are already requiring proof of vaccination or a negative rapid test.
239961251_4339038112801844_4484910403156894673_n

WARNING! COVID-19 (the Delta Variant) is spreading
and case numbers are rising in all 50 states.

COVID-19 is still the leading cause of death in the United States.
624000+ Reported Deaths in the United States from COVID-19
as of Wednesday.
64770+ Reported Deaths in California from COVID-19 as of Wednesday.
53520+ Reported Deaths in New York from COVID-19 as of Wednesday.
(these are the reported numbers, the true numbers are much higher)

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

And the United States abandoned Afghanistan this week, TOTAL FAIL!
and the Taliban seized controlled of the country this weekend. 
US Troops withdrew and the Afghan puppet state collapsed immediately.
The Afghan army, the US paid $87 Billion Dollars for, said “No thanks.” 
The Afghan President fled the country. Reports of Abductions, Rape, Executions!
And we left all our military equipment behind, so now the Taliban has that too.
So now the US is sending troops in to cover their own evacuation. TOTAL FAIL!
The US Military Command is to blame. After 20 years, the pullout was a disaster.
President Joe Biden was set up. Trump and the GOP Traitors caused this. TOTAL FAIL!
And it’s all about the OPIUM, baby….

MORE GOOD MEDIA DISTRACTION
FROM TRUMP AND THE GOP TRAITOR’S TREASON!
And suddenly Afghanistan is a major media story again…..
after 20 years of BULLSH*T! War for the military-industrial complex.
BILLIONS AND BILLIONS OF DOLLARS WASTED.
THOUSANDS OF AMERICAN LIVES LOST, AND THOUSANDS WOUNDED.
TRUMP SOLD OUT THE UNITED STATES MILITARY (and the Corporations too).
President Joe Biden FAILED. The US Military FAILED. 
COMING SOON: CIVIL WAR. Civilian Atrocities. And more US “LIP SERVICE”.

The Japanese Formula One Grand Prix cancelled for the second year in a row today.

HAPPINESS IS A FUNDAMENTAL HUMAN GOAL!
DON’T WORRY! BE HAPPY TODAY!
The three key aspects that will lead to our well-being and happiness:
an end to poverty, a reduction of inequality, and the protection of our planet.

Mental health problems are common.
Seek help if you feel overwhelmed or unsafe!
If distress impacts your daily life for several days or weeks, talk to someone!
Talk to a clergy member, counselor, or your healthcare provider.
If you, or someone you know, are feeling overwhelmed with emotions like sadness, depression, or anxiety, or feel like you want to harm yourself or others, seek professional help immediately.

If you or someone you know is having suicidal thoughts, get help right away!
Call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 800-273-TALK (800-273-8255) to reach a trained counselor and press 1 to reach the Veterans Crisis Line.
You can also chat with them online at suicidepreventionlifeline.org/chat/.

NOTE:  if you TEXT 741741 when you are feeling depressed, suicidal or anxious, a crisis worker will text you back and continue to text with you? Many people, especially younger folks, do not like talking on the phone and would be more comfortable texting. It’s a free service to ANYONE: teens, adults, etc. who lives in the U.S. It’s run by The Crisis Text Line and is legit.

Los Angeles County Dept. of Mental Health has a collection of FREE guided meditations to reduce stress, and also FREE sleep and movement exercises at headspace.com/lacounty or contact them at DMH.LACounty.gov

a1dab4d15feaadb36d4518dee5f27bb4
TRUMP IS A CRIMINAL CON MAN!
AND TRUMPERS ARE LOSERS AND SUCKERS! “That’s all today.”

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

And now we’re updating our Blog Post.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is real and not a joke.
There were coyotes outside the house yesterday morning and tonight.
It’s been five years (2016) since the little girls
were killed by coyotes in our fenced backyard.
We also have some nasty raccoons in the neighborhood,
and we saw the really fat one out front this morning too.
(and we can hear them in the ivy and bushes outside at night)
There’s also a big hawk, a mated pair of hawks, and two owls that hunt at night.
And the hawks perch in the neighbor’s tall pine tree during the day too.

So we are chillin’ with the dog, and he’s being adorable and cute.
He was sleeping at our feet, under the desk,
and now he just moved next to us and is sleeping in his play bed.
The other dogs are sleeping in their houses the bedroom.
And it’s Thursday morning, just past midnight.
Sarah Silverman is guest hosting “Jimmy Kimmel Live” tonight.
And she’s killin’ it. And Guillermo tested positive for COVID-19!
So he’s quarantined at home, and hasn’t been on the show this week,
but he made a remote appearance today during the monologue,
and Sarah sent him a get well gift: a jumbo-sized bottle
of Don Julio tequila and 6 big bags of Flaming Cheetos.

It’s NATIONAL RASPBERRY BOMBE DAY!

Q.G. CHoNG’S MONGOLIAN BEEF
Copycat recipe for P.F. Chang’s Mongolian Beef

Sliced flank steak and green onions in a sweet and savory sauce 
served with steamed rice and steamed broccoli. 

Prep Time: 15 minutes – Cook Time: 15 minutes
Makes 3 – 4 servings

Ingredients:
1 pound of flank steak
1/4 cup cornstarch
vegetable oil, for serving and sauteeing
1/2 teaspoon minced ginger
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup dark brown sugar, not packed
vegetable oil, for frying

2 large green onions, sliced on the diagonal into one-inch lengths
cooked rice, for serving
steamed broccoli, for serving

Instructions:

  1. Slice the flank steak against the grain into 1/4″ thick 1-inch long slices. Add the cornstarch to a wide, shallow bowl and coat the steak with the cornstarch. Set aside and allow the cornstarch to soak into them meat while you make the sauce.

  2. Heat 2 teaspoons oil over medium-low heat in a wok or large cast-iron or stainless steel frying pan. Add the ginger and garlic, saute until fragrant about 2 minute, stirring often.

  3. Add the soy sauce and water then whisk in the brown sugar. Turn heat up to medium-high, bring to a boil and cook 2-3 minutes (not longer – the mixture will thicken up when you add it to the steak) whisking often. Remove to a bowl and set aside.

  4. Add 1/2 to 3/4-inch oil to the same pan and heat over medium heat until the oil shimmers. You can test it by adding a piece of steak – it should sizzle and start cooking immediately.

  5. Add the beef to the oil and cook for about two minutes turning the pieces over so they brown on both sides. Remove with a slotted spoon or spider to a paper towel lined plate.

  6. Let oil cool down – then drain off.

  7. Heat the same pan over medium heat and add the meat back in along with the sauce and green onions. Cook for 2 – 3 minutes, stirring to coat the meat all over with the sauce.

  8. Remove the meat and leave the excess sauce behind. Serve over rice with broccoli, if desired.

cut the sugar to 1/3 c. and increase the ginger to a tsp. I also don’t fry the meat in that much oil. I just use a couple TBSP, like a stir fry. Instead of adding the scallions with it, I cut a medium onion into eight wedges and fry that after the beef, then toss it all together in the sauce. The scallions go on top raw, as garnish.

Homemade Pita Bread

Ingredients:
4 Tbsp active dry yeast
4 cups (1liter) warm water
2 Tbsp sugar
5 pounds (2.25 kg) flour
2 Tbsp sea salt
2/3 cup (150 ml) neutral tasting oil, such as safflower oil 

Directions:
In a large bowl, combine the yeast with the 2 tablespoons of sugar and the warm water. Cover the bowl and allow the mixture to start activating. Yeast activation should take about 10 minutes; it will be bubbling and foamy.

Set 1 cup (125 g) of flour aside. Sift the remaining flour, and salt into the bowl. With a spatula, combine the ingredients. Once the ingredients come together as dough, it is time to knead. At this point, you can remove the dough from the bowl and knead on the kitchen counter if it’s easier for you, or directly in the bowl.

To knead the dough: Grab the side of the dough furthest away from you and fold it toward yourself. Fold the dough in half and use your body weight to push the dough into itself. If you find that the dough is sticking too much to the surface and preventing you from kneading properly, dust some flour on the dough. Give the dough a quarter turn (90 degrees). Grab the other side and fold it in half. Again, with a lot of weight behind it, push the newly folded half into itself. Repeat this process for 10-15 minutes or until the dough is smooth, silky, elastic, and does not stick to the surface.

After the dough is thoroughly prepared, grease the large bowl with a fine layer of oil, turning the dough in the oil several times so that the dough is greased lightly on all sides. 

Cover the bowl with a large plastic garbage bag or kitchen towel and allow it to rise for 40 minutes. 

Knead the dough again for a few more minutes and then divide the dough into 30 balls. Use the remaining flour, for the surface area and hands to prevent sticking. Roll each piece into a 6-inch (15 centimeters) pancake. Cover with kitchen towel and let them rise again in a warm place for 20 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 500°F with a cookie sheet on the oven’s bottom rack.
The hot cookie sheet will facilitate the pita baking process. 

Place approximately six pitas on the hot cookie sheet, separating each pita by 2 inches (5 centimeters). Bake on the bottom rack for 3-4 minutes, flip over and then bake for another 2 minutes. You want the pitas puffed and lightly colored, not browned. Continue this process in batches until all pitas are baked.

If the pita puffs up once out of the oven, gently pierce it with a fork. Wrap the pitas in a towel till they are cool, then store in plastic bags until ready for use. You can store in the freezer for up to 2 months to retain freshness.

Coconut Almond Spice Cake

Cocoa Brownies 

Ingredients:

4 large eggs
7 ounces granulated sugar
6 ounces light brown sugar
5 3/4 ounces natural cocoa powder (not Dutch process)
2 1/2 ounces all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
8 ounces unsalted butter, melted
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.
Grease an 8-inch square baking pan with non-stick spray.
Trim a piece of parchment paper so that it fits just inside the baking dish
with overhang on two sides and place it inside the pan.
Beat eggs with stand mixer fitted w/paddle attachment at medium speed until fluffy and light yellow, 2 to 3 minutes.
In a separate bowl, combine the granulated sugar, brown sugar, cocoa powder, flour and salt.
Drop the mixer speed to low and slowly introduce the sugar mixture.
Follow with the butter and vanilla. Continue mixing until you’ve got a nice, smooth goo.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
Bake the brownies for 15 minutes, then remove them from the oven for 15 minutes.
Put them back in the oven until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the middle of the brownie, reads 195 degrees F (about 30 minutes).
Cool in the pan for 3 minutes, then lift the brownie out using the parchment paper as a sling.
Cut the brownies into 9 pieces using a pizza wheel and move to a rack to cool completely.


Haschich Fudge
from The Alice B. Toklas Cook Book published in 1954

Take 1 teaspoon black peppercorns, 1 whole nutmeg, 4 average sticks of cinnamon, 1 teaspoon coriander. These should all be pulverised in a mortar. About a handful each of stoned dates, dried figs, shelled almonds and peanuts: chop these and mix them together. A bunch of cannabis sativa can be pulverised. This along with the spices should be dusted over the mixed fruit and nuts, kneaded together. About a cup of sugar dissolved in a big pat of butter. Rolled into a cake and cut into pieces or made into balls about the size of a walnut, it should be eaten with care. Two pieces are quite sufficient.

Obtaining the cannabis may present certain difficulties, but the variety known as cannabis sativa grows as a common weed, often unrecognized, everywhere in Europe, Asia and parts of Africa; besides being cultivated as a crop for the manufacture of rope. In the Americas, while often discouraged, its cousin, called cannabis indica, has been observed even in city window boxes. It should be picked and dried as soon as it has gone to seed and while the plant is still green.

1:10pm: We fell asleep and woke up at Midnight. We took the dog outside.
And now we’re awake again.

We made and drank a double espresso and ate a piece of poundcake.
And now we are fuckin’ done with Wednesday before 9:00am.

Was amused this morning and played a little game.

2:55pm: We did go back to bed and we took a nap with the dog.
We needed to sleep. And then we woke up. Still Wednesday.
We took the dogs outside. We drank a cup of espresso.
We took the dogs outside again. The gardener is here. It’s HOT.
We drank another cup of espresso and made/ate some lunch.

The Hawk (there’s a pair) in the tree has been screeching and squawking a lot.
So, today we got lucky and got a pic of it “diving for lunch”
Perched in the tree, and then in flight with our cheapo cell phone.

Lunchtime!
On The Menu:
a chicken and cheese sandwich on toasted French bread,
dill pickle, celery, cherries, and watermelon

“You will be happy to find some quiet moments
to enjoy some peace and quiet to relax”

2:30am: We decided it was time to finally watch “The Mandolorian” on Disney+.
NOTE: We watched episode 1 twice and then fell asleep with the dogs.

216551402_4944261488933711_220832531760820294_n
The Mandalorian and The Child

7:20am: We woke up. We took the dogs outside.
We set up their breakfast. We got the newspapers.
And The Hawk was screeching from the top of a telephone pole out front.
We made an iced espresso and ate a toasted sesame bagel with cream cheese.
Drink Coffee. Drink Water. – “This is the way.”
We watched episode 2 and 3 of “The Mandalorian” and drank the iced espresso.

9:00am: We took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs.
We took the dogs outside again.
9:40am: Okay, we wasted enough of the morning…..
10:10am: We took the dogs outside. We made another iced espresso.
The housekeeper is here to clean up after the family party and long week.
So, we are back to chillin’ in the Home Office with the dogs again.

11:20: tick tock, tick tock

Screen Shot 2021-07-15 at 14.42.55

3:05pm: We took a nap with the dogs and missed a pursuit!
There was a pursuit that ended on the side of the 138 out in the boonies.
Suspect in custody after trailing that bumper for miles.
We waited for the housekeeper to go.
And we watched episode 4 of “The Mandolorian”.
We took one dog outside and then we gave him lots of love.
Big Dog is still sleeping and we are chillin’ once again in the Home Office.
But we are hungry now, and it’s time to eat some food,
and also maybe run an errand or two.

3:35pm: We just made an iced espresso to drink,
and we put some chicken flautas in the oven to cook for lunch.

On The Menu: Chicken flautas with salsa verde
216165732_4942376219122238_1835431169005656354_n

9:00pm: Recapping Thursday.
And we took a nap with the dogs.
And we woke up and went back to bed.
And we took another nap…. and woke up after 8:30pm!
We took the dogs outside and fed the dogs. Late supper.
And we took the dog outside again.
Now we’re back in the Home Office. The dogs are sleeping again.

11:45pm: We watched more episodes (5,6, and 7) of “The Mandalorian”. 
And we made some dinner. We don’t want to waste food.
And there was a lot of food leftover from the dinner party.
Besides the Cornish game hens, there was chicken taco meat,
and there’s still a whole Costco rotisserie chicken in the fridge.

On The Menu: Chicken taco with salsa verde

Are you FULLY VACCINATED*?
GET VACCINATED if you haven’t yet!
*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,

We attempted to clean the Home Office a little…. yeah, nice try.

The chain was founded in 1927 as an ice house storefront in Dallas.
It was named Tote’m Stores between 1928 and 1946.- wikipedia
The name was changed in 1946 to “7-Eleven” because of their new

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

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

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

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

On The Menu: 2 Hotdogs with mustard, cheese and chopped onion, dill pickle,
1/2 an avocado, potato chips, and an iced espresso to drink

3:35pm: We took a short nap. We took the dogs outside. It’s HOT.
We’re chilling’ with the dogs in the Home Office.

215324576_4935210216505505_1576282848374795044_n

Tuesday, July 13, 2021 – DO NOT TRAVELTUESDAY!

Happy birthday Woody Guthrie!
Happy birthday Cheech Marin!

live-aid-ukposter01

On this day in 1985, the LIVE AID concerts were held in Philadelphia and London
to raise money to “Feed The World” and provide starvation relief in Ethiopia.
We were on the beach at the Grateful Dead concert in Ventura.

3:05am: We ate some Grater’s Ice Cream at 3AM!
(Chocolate Chip and Double Chocolate Chip)

8:40am: And we’re awake again. We slept a little. There were dogs barking.
We woke up and didn’t really get back to sleep. And now we’re awake.

9:25am: We made a double iced espresso.
And it’s raining outside! Well, drizzling or sprinkling.
WATER IS FALLING FROM THE SKY! And some of it is reaching the ground.

10:50am: Well, it stopped “raining” but it’s still gray out.
Reminds us of a Marin County Summer morning, the color, the temp, the humidity.
We took the dog outside. We played with the dog. We’re chillin’ on Tuesday.

12:30pm: We took a short unplanned nap with the dog…. and now we’re up again.
We took the dog outside. And we took the dog outside again.

The Emmy Nominations were announced today in Hollywood.
We know someone nominated. He was on KTLA with Sam Rubin this morning.

Disneyland’s “Jungle Cruise” got a remodel during the pandemic closure.
All the controversial scenes (with the African natives) have been changed.
The classic Adventureland theme park ride re-opens this week.

2:15pm: We made an iced espresso
and we ate a toasted sesame bagel with cream cheese

4:30pm: We took a shower.

6:00pm: We have company! Real live people in the house today.
Family visiting from a FOREIGN COUNTRY! Unmasked and personal!
Hugs, handshakes, hor d’oeuvres…. and we’re going to have dinner.
A LITTLE TOO WEIRD. They are tested and vaccinated, but it’s weird.
Our step-sister and her husband and children are here.
They are from the Czech Republic.
And they’re driving to San Francisco tomorrow. Not what we would do….
We advised them to take the 101 north, and not Interstate 5, or Highway 1,
because of the Central Valley heat, the scenery and nice places to stop on US 101,
and the truck traffic on the 5 freeway and tourist traffic on Highway 1.

US 101 will take you through the city of San Francisco and across
the Golden Gate Bridge, through Marin County, and all the way to Oregon.
217629288_3656003627837816_2690384696879073505_n

California Interstate 5 to 580 and across the Bay Bridge into San Francisco.
217738526_3656003641171148_8986842773934891019_n

NOTE: The tolls are on the 580 going west into the city at the Bay Bridge.
There is NO TOLL on the Golden Gate Bridge going north, leaving the city.

7:50pm: First Family Dinner in 16 months.
On The Menu: Cornish game hen, stuffing, corn on the cob, salad,
and watermelon, with cran-raspberry-orange juice to drink
217426650_4935578589802001_507627567447375901_n

8:20pm: Well my step-sister’s son is 12 and he can shred on the guitar.
Kid is jammin’ tunes on an acoustic Gibson, but he says he plays electric.
We bought him a new Ibanez electric guitar with all the bells and whistles.
He says he plays by ear when we recommend a YouTube site: JDarks
with guitar tabs and instruction.
Would love to have him do “reaction vids” as he discovers new music!

9:25pm: We sat him down and showed him a couple “old school” YouTube vids.
Then they served the ice cream and we were done with the music lesson.
And so we enjoyed some ice cream for dessert too.
We gave them some travel tips for their trip to San Francisco.
And they just left the house. It was fun to see them and sort of play uncle….
(we like kids when we can give them back) and it’s been three years.

“San Francisco’s Cable Cars Will Be Free to Ride When They Come Back in August”
So they won’t be riding the cable cars this week. They were closed for the pandemic.
But they announced the return of the Cable Cars today, and they’ll be FREE for a month.

California’s Governor Gavin Newsom, who is now being recalled,
announced all kinds of good stuff today: Rent subsidies. Grants for small business.
All kinds of other money for people. Hallelujah!

10:29pm: And all is quiet now. Everyone is gone and the dogs are napping.

They’re going to make Mayor Garcetti the new Ambassador to India….
(Okay, we just can’t do Garcetti this morning – HE IS SUCH AN ASSHOLE!)

King Cotton Blues

19844453544_bfae97c853_b

King Cotton Blues
Lyrics by Robert Hunter
Music by Malcolm Welbourne (Papa Mali), Bill Kreutzmann, Matt Hubbard
as performed by 7 Walkers

Got the king cotton blues, that I can’t deny
I’ve always been in trouble, but, I never did know why
Some say it’s my attitude, others said my luck
Those that said my just deserts can take a flying fuck

Got the king cotton blues, right down to my core
I can take the licking, boys, stand up and ask for more
It ain’t because of courage, on account of being brave
I never saw much reason to avoid an early grave

[Chorus:]
King cotton blues boys, be it understood
Shotgun is too merciful, hanging is too good
Drowning’s too uncertain, poison is too slow
To snuff a worthless widow’s son whose time has come to go

Got the king cotton blues, reason to complain
All the local prostitutes, spit upon my name
I take out my handkerchief, and dust that shit away
Revenge don’t bring relief, boys, no matter what they say

Got the king cotton blues, price upon my head
A thousand bucks alive, and double if I’m dead
They don’t want to have to feed me, they know my appetite
Let’s head down to the bar afar, and pick another fight

[Chorus]

Got the king cotton blues when shit hits the fan
No shame to duck, boys, any chance you can
Take your absolution, at the whorehouse down the block
For those who disavow you, can wind the devil’s clock

Got the king cotton blues, every dog knows the tune
Every cat has a version, beneath the brightful moon
Take your revolution, and stick it upper class
Be kind to one another, and dip your lights when you pass

[Chorus]

Got the king cotton blues, that’s all I got to say
They done locked up the keys, and threw the house away
I’m just buying my time ’til they pop my red balloon
Feed me to the tigers, throw my leg across the moon

[Chorus]

King Cotton Blues by 7 Walkers with Willie Nelson:

7 Walkers (2009-2012) featured former Grateful Dead drummer Bill Kreutzmann,
guitarist and singer Malcolm Welbourne aka Papa Mali,
multi-instrumentalist Matt Hubbard, and bassist George Porter Jr.
NOTE: Reed Mathis was an original member of 7 Walkers,
He played on the self-titled debut album (released on November 2, 2010)
He left the band due to touring commitments and was replaced by George Porter Jr..


And now a little King Cotton history:

51ddD7gIZ0L

“‘King Cotton’ is a slogan that summarized the strategy used before the American Civil War (of 1861–1865) by pro-secessionists in the southern states (the future Confederate States of America) to claim the feasibility of secession and to prove there was no need to fear a war with the northern states.” – wikipedia

slide_1

Cotton is a soft, fluffy staple fiber that grows in a boll,
or protective case, around the seeds of the cotton plants.

Genus: Gossyplum – family: malvaceae

India is the world’s largest producer of cotton.
The five leading exporters of cotton in 2019:
(1) India, (2) the United States, (3) China, (4) Brazil, and (5) Pakistan.

The invention of the cotton gin lowered the cost of production,
leading to greater profits, and the expansion of cotton farming and slavery.

SLAVERY AND SLAVE LABOR – The real hands that built America!
George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, James Monroe,
John Hancock, and many other “Founding Fathers” owned slaves.

August, 1619 –  First Slaves arrive in Jamestown, Virginia
20-30 enslaved Africans landed at Point Comfort
(now Fort Monroe in Hampton, Virginia)
Captain Jope and Mr. Marmaduke from the English warship ‘White Lion’
traded captives removed from the Portuguese slave ship, San Juan Bautista
to the Governor and Cape Merchant of Jamestown for food and supplies.

1662 – Slavery officially recognized as the statutory law of the colony.
Legislation passed to define the status of mixed-race (mulatto) children.
Children were considered the same status as their mother.
If the child was born to a slave, the child would be born a slave.

BLACKLIVESMATTER!
Acknowledge the history and legacy of slavery, the slave trade,
the failed reconstruction and post Civil War retaliation, sharecropping,
“The Great Migration”, the Klu Klux Klan, segregation, Jim Crow, and racism!

“Oh! Isn’t that a Dainty Dish to set before the King!”
by artist John McLenan (1827-1865)

This cartoon depicts General George B. McClellan delivering a live bombshell to the table of the British monarchy. The table top says “Virginia” while the body of it is made of cotton and the supports are “whiskey.” Standing nearby is Lord Palmerston pictured as a whiskey bottle (“Old Rye Prime Minister”). In the background is a slave atop a stack of cotton and a black servant commenting on the instabilty of the cotton stack. This is referencing Great Britiain’s policy of neutrality towards the American Civil War and the belief by many Northerners that it was merely a strategic position taken by the British to maximize their economic benefits. In reality, Palmerston viewed neutrality and the possible success of the Confederacy as lucrative economic possibilites for Great Britiain. This depiction is infering that McClellan and the Union Army will destroy the foundation of this economic plan (portrayed here as cotton) through their military successes.

The Triangular Trade in the 18th and 19th centuries:
Great Britain shipped goods to West Africa.
These goods were used to buy captured Africans.
The African slaves were shipped to the West Indies and the Americas
and exchanged for sugar, rum, and other goods.
And then these goods were shipped back to Great Britain.

“COTTON IS KING!”
unnamed


The “King Cotton” March was composed in 1895 by John Philip Sousa
for the Cotton States and International Exposition (1895).

Dandelions!

Dandelions!
(Genus: Taraxacum, family: Asteraceae)

10991563_1080154505344448_4063870466938531715_o

🌼💛 Hello, I’m a dandelion.
A lot of people call me a weed but I’m a friend and come to help you!
When you see me, remember that I’m the ONLY one who wants and can grow in that particular spot. Because:
Either the soil is too compact / hard / stomped and I want to loosen it for you with my roots.
Or there is too little calcium in the soil – don’t worry, I will replenish that for you with the dying of my leaves.
Or the soil is too acidic. But I will also improve that for you if you give me the chance.
Or a mixture of the above reasons, of course. 😊
I’m here because your soil needs my help so best you let me grow without disturbing me! When everything is fixed, I will disappear again, I promise!
Are you trying to remove me prematurely with my root? However meticulous you are, I will return 2x as strong! Just until your soil is improved.
You can even tell by my growth at which stage my help is at. If my leaves are flat on the ground then I’m far from ready but if they all reach up then I’m already a long way on my way.
Something completely different is that I am 1 of the first bloomers in spring so I will announce spring / summer for you.
During the day when it’s hot, I open my flowers but in the evening when it cools off I close them again quickly. In fact, if it’s not hot enough during the day I won’t open them at all!
My flowers are the first food for insects after hibernation and unlike most other plants, I have pollen AND nectar, not merely one OR the other! And I am generous with them! 🤪😉
My flowers are even delicious for you people by the way, did you know? I used to be called ′′honey (or gold) of the poor′′ because my flowers are so sweet in e.g. jam, sauce or salad! The internet is full of recipes – check them out.
But wait until the end of May or later before you start picking and even then, don’t pick everything yet! The biodiversity and bees will be very grateful!

Dandelions are an herb that is native to Europe.
Dandelions can be found in mild climates
in temperate regions across the Northern Hemisphere.

Taraxacum officinale is the most common species.
The common dandelion is a flowering herbaceous perennial plant.
The scientific study of the genus is known as taraxacology.

The English name comes from the French dent de lion  (lion’s tooth) 
referring to the shape the leaves.

Dandelions have medicinal properties used in traditional herbal medicine 

462408aa8e1dd9bd9b32d2cebbaf4dbd
Nicholas Vachel Lindsay (November 10, 1879 – December 5, 1931)
was an American Poet known as “The Prarie Troubadour”

original-1209272-4

“There’s starting to be a lot more argument that they should be kept because of what they can do for pollinators. Ecologically they are becoming very important as a food source for domestic and wild species of bees, particularly in early spring because they grow so soon. Butterflies and moths also feed on them as a source of sugar, and some species of birds feed on dandelion seeds”
– Ken Willis, University of Alberta Botanic Garden Head of Horticulture

Dandelions are edible and high in nutritional value (vitamins, minerals and fiber).
All parts of the plant (flower, leaf, stem, and roots) can be eaten cooked or raw.
The roots can be dried, ground, and used to make tea.
Dandelions are available as packaged herbal supplements
(capsules, extracts, oils, and tinctures).
Dandelions contain high levels of the antioxidant beta-carotene and polyphenols.

97496212_10217619235212436_7507247502173667328_n

Other Potential Health Benefits from Dandelions:
Reduce cholesterol
Regulate blood sugar
Reduce inflammation
Lower blood pressure
Aid weight loss
Reduce cancer risk
Boost the immune system
Helps relieve mild constipation

Five ways to consume Dandelions:
  1. Dandelion green salad
  2. Sauteed Dandelion greens (cooking eliminates some of the bitter taste) 
  3. Dandelion fritters
  4. Baking with Dandelion petals
  5. Dandelion root tea (and coffee substitute)

Dandelion tea acts as a diuretic and increases urine output.
It has also been used to improve appetite and soothe minor digestive ailments.

Dandelions have low toxicity and are safe for most people.

WARNING! Dandelion can cause an allergic reaction!
People with allergies to other plants like ragweed may also be allergic to Dandelions.
And people with sensitive skin may experience contact dermatitis (a rash or hives).
Other side effects include stomach discomfort, diarrhea, and/or heartburn

WARNING! Dandelions may interact badly with some medications (especially diuretics and antibiotics)! If using prescription medications, consult a healthcare provider before using Dandelions.

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

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

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

And we just spent 22 minutes on HOLD waiting for LAPD Non-Emergency Operator.
CALL 877-LAPD247 to report ILLEGAL FIREWORKS!
ALL FIREWORKS ARE ILLEGAL IN THE CITY OF LOS ANGELES!

HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY!

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

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

4th of July 2021

Celebrate Liberty and Freedom Today and Tomorrow!

10:05am: WE went to bed before dawn…. we woke up too early.
We didn’t sleep because of the Fireworks….. the dogs went outside.
The dogs got fed. The newspapers were retrieved. We put the flag out.
We drank an iced espresso. We took the dogs outside.

3:55pm: We took the dogs outside again. We made some food. We ate the food.
We drank a double iced espresso. We took a nap. We just woke up again.
It’s HOT and Bright outside. We turned on the air-conditioner.

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

On The Menu: Thin cut top sirloin steak and onions

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

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

CELEBRATE ONE THOUSAND PUBLISHED BLOG POSTS WITH US!
1000 posts

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

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

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