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.

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.

Good Advice from an Old Farmer…. and Albert Einstein!

Good Advice from an Old Farmer…. and Albert Einstein!

The best sermons are lived, not preached.

Homegrown’s all right with me
Homegrown is the way it should be
Homegrown is a good thing
Plant that bell and let it ring
The sun comes up in the morning
Shines that light around
One day, without no warning
Things start jumping up from the ground
“Homegrown” by Neil Young

“Imagination is more important than knowledge.” – Albert Einstein

“Albert Einstein was a German-born theoretical physicist,
widely acknowledged to be one of the greatest physicists of all time.
Einstein is known for developing the Theory of Relativity,
but he also made important contributions to the development of
the Theory of Quantum Mechanics.” – wikipedia

“Insanity: doing the same thing over and over
again and expecting different results.”
– Albert Einstein

Your fences need to be horse-high, pig-tight and bull-strong.

Keep skunks and bankers at a distance.

Life is simpler when you plow around the stump.

A bumble bee is considerably faster than a tractor.

Words that soak into your ears are whispered… not yelled.

“A table, a chair, a bowl of fruit and a violin;
what else does a man need to be happy?” – Albert Einstein

Albert Einstein won the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1921
for the discovery of the photoelectric effect.
He received his Nobel Prize for 1921 one year later, in 1922.

Meanness don’t jes’ happen overnight.

Forgive your enemies; it messes with their heads.

Do not corner something that you know is meaner than you.

It don’t take a very big person to carry a grudge.

You cannot unsay a cruel word.

“Great spirits have always encountered
violent opposition from mediocre minds.”
– Albert Einstein

March 14, 1879 – April 18, 1955
Albert Einstein grew up in Munich and became a German citizen in 1914.

He emigrated to the United States and took a job as a Professor
of Theoretical Physics at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, New Jersey.

“Look deep into nature,
and then you will understand everything better.”
– Albert Einstein

Every path has a few puddles.

When you wallow with pigs, expect to get dirty.

Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.

Most of the stuff people worry about ain’t never gonna happen anyway.

Don’t judge folks by their relatives.

“Science can flourish only
in an atmosphere of free speech.”
– Albert Einstein

Albert Einstein was married twice
and had three children from his first wife.

Live a good, honorable life…
Then when you get older and think back, you’ll enjoy it a second time.

Don‘t interfere with somethin’ that ain’t bothering you none.

Timing has a lot to do with the outcome of a Rain Dance.

If you find yourself in a hole,
the first thing to do is stop diggin’.

“Try not to become a man of success,
but rather try to become a man of value.”
– Albert Einstein

emilysquotes_com-life-lessons-advice-wisdom-intelligent-albert-einstein-inspirational

“Life is like riding a bicycle.
To keep your balance you must keep moving.” 
– Albert Einstein

Sometimes you get, and sometimes you get “got”.

The biggest troublemaker you’ll probably ever have to deal with,
watches you from the mirror every mornin’.

Good judgment comes from experience,
and a lotta that experience comes from bad judgment.

Lettin’ the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier than puttin’ it back in.

Grow food, not lawns.

action-quotes-04

“A happy man is too satisfied with the present
to dwell too much on the future.” – Albert Einstein

If you get to thinkin’ you’re a person of some influence,
try orderin’ someone else’s dog around..

Live simply. Love generously.
Care deeply. Speak kindly.

Don’t pick a fight with an old man.
If he is too old to fight, he’ll just kill you.

Most times, it just comes down to common sense.

“The important thing is not to stop questioning.
Curiosity has its own reason for existing.”
– Albert Einstein

Oh, Mother Earth
With your fields of green
Once more laid down
By the hungry hand
How long can you
Give and not receive
And feed this world
Ruled by greed
“Mother Earth” by Neil Young

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.

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.

“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:

The Cheese Shop Sketch

The Cheese Shop Sketch
by Monty Python’s Flying Circus

193488808_4827328387293689_3027348677766220419_n

NOTE: Friday was National Cheese Day! So we ripped and edited this sketch.
And then last night PBS had a special about “Monty Python’s Flying Circus” on.
So, here it is. Makes us laugh everytime! Cue the Bouzouki music.

INTERIOR: CHEESE SHOP
(a customer walks in the door.)

Customer (John Cleese): Good Morning.
Owner (Michael Palin): Good morning, Sir. Welcome to the National Cheese Emporium!
Customer: Ah thank you my good man.
Owner: What can I do for you, Sir?
C: Well, I was, uh, sitting in the public library on Thurmon Street just now, skimming through ‘Rogue Herrys’ by Hugh Walpole, and I suddenly came over all peckish.
O: Peckish, sir?
C: Esuriant. O: Eh?
C: ‘Ee I were all ‘ungry-like! O: Ah, hungry!
C: In a nutshell. And I thought to myself, ‘a little fermented curd will do the trick’, so, I curtailed my Walpoling activites, sallied forth, and infiltrated your place of purveyance to negotiate the vending of some cheesy comestibles!
O: Come again?
C: I want to buy some cheese.
O: Oh, I thought you were complaining about the bouzouki player!
C: Oh, heaven forbid: I am one who delights in all manifestations of the Terpsichorean muse!
O: Sorry?
C: ‘Ooo, Ah lahk a nice tune, ‘yer forced to!
O: So he can go on playing, can he?
C: Most certainly! Now then, some cheese please, my good man.
O: (lustily) Certainly, sir. What would you like?
C: Well, eh, how about a little Red Leicester.
O: I’m, a-fraid we’re fresh out of Red Leicester, sir.
C: Oh, never mind, how are you on Tilsit?
O: I’m afraid we never have that at the end of the week, sir, we get it fresh on Monday.
C: Tish tish. No matter. Well, stout yeoman, four ounces of Caerphilly, if you please.
O: Ah! It’s beeeen on order, sir, for two weeks. Was expecting it this morning.
C: ‘T’s Not my lucky day, is it? Aah, Bel Paese? O: Sorry, sir.
C: Red Windsor? O: Normally, sir, yes. Today the van broke down.
C: Ah. Stilton? O: No.
C: Gruyere? Emmental? O: No.
C: Any Norwegian Jarlsberger, per chance? O: No.
C: Liptauer? O: No.
C: Lancashire? O: No.
C: White Stilton? O: No.
C: Danish Blue? O: No.
C: Double Gloucester? O: (pause) No.
C: Cheshire? O: No.
C: Dorset Blue Vinney? O: No.
C: Brie, Roquefort, Pont-l’Eveque, Port Salut, Savoyard, Saint-Paulin, Carre-de-L’Est, Boursin, Bresse Bleu, Perle de Champagne? O: No.
C: Camembert, perhaps?
O: Ah! We have Camembert, yessir.
C: (suprised) You do! Excellent.
O: Yessir. It’s ah… it’s a bit runny.
C: Oh, I like it runny.
O: Well,.. It’s very runny, actually, sir.
C: No matter. Fetch hither the fromage de la Belle France! Mmmwah!
O: I…think it’s a bit runnier than you’ll like it, sir.
C: I don’t care how fucking runny it is. Hand it over with all speed.
O: Oooooooooohhh……..! (pause)
C: What now?
O: The cat’s eaten it.
C: (pause) Has he? O: She, sir.
(pause)
C: Gouda? O: No.
C: Edam? O: No.
C: Caithness? O: No.
C: Smoked Austrian? O: No.
C: Japanese Sage Darby? O: No sir.
C: You… do have some cheese, don’t you?
O: (brightly) Of course, sir. It’s a cheese shop, sir. We’ve got-
C: No no… don’t tell me. I’m keen to guess.
O: Fair enough.
C: Uuuuuh, Wensleydale. O: Yes sir?
C: Ah, well, I’ll have some of that!
O: Oh! I thought you were talking to me, sir. Mister Wensleydale, that’s my name.
(pause)
C: Greek Feta? O: Uh, not as such.
C: Uuh, Gorgonzola? O: No
C: Parmesan? O: No
C: Mozzarella? O: No
C: Pippo Creme? O: No
C: Danish Fimboe? O: No
C: Czech sheep’s milk? O: No
C: Venezuelan Beaver Cheese? O: Not -today-, sir, no.
(pause)
C: Aah, how about Cheddar?
O: Well, we don’t get much call for it around here, sir.
C: Not much ca–It’s the single most popular cheese in the world!
O: Not ’round here, sir.
C: (slight pause) and what IS the most popular cheese ’round hyah?
O: ‘Illchester, sir.
C: IS it?
O: Oh, yes, it’s staggeringly popular in this manusquire.
C: Is it?
O: It’s our number one best seller, sir!
C: I see. Uuh… ‘Illchester, eh?
O: Right, sir.
C: All right. Okay. ‘Have you got any?’ He asked, expecting the answer ‘no’.
O: I’ll have a look, sir.. nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnno.
C: It’s not much of a cheese shop, is it?
O: Finest in the district sir!
C: (annoyed) Explain the logic underlying that conclusion, please.
O: Well, it’s so clean, sir!
C: It’s certainly uncontaminated by cheese.
O: (brightly) You haven’t asked me about Limburger, sir.
C: Would it be worth it?
O: Could be.
C: Have you —SHUT THAT BLOODY BOUZOUKI OFF!
O: Told you sir…
C: (slowly) Have you got any Limburger?
O: No.
C: Figures. Predictable, really I suppose. It was an act of purest optimism to have posed the question in the first place……. Tell me:
O: Yessir?
C: (deliberately) Have you in fact got any cheese here at all?
O: Yes,sir.
C: Really?
(pause)
O: No. Not really, sir.
C: You haven’t.
O: No sir. Not a scrap. I was deliberately wasting your time,sir.
C: Well I’m sorry, but I’m going to have to shoot you.
O: Right-0, sir.
(The customer takes out a gun and shoots the shopkeeper)
C: What a senseless waste of human life.

“And now for something completely different…..”

A wee bit more Monty Python is necessary.

Friday, May 21, 2021 – National Anti-Terrorism Day

“Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger.
Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.”

8:00am: The dogs went outside. The dogs got fed. The dogs went outside.
We drank two cups of espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.
It’s National Pizza Party Day! We ate a cold piece of leftover pizza. PARTY!

We finished binge-watching the first season of “Resident Alien” on SyFy Channel.
It was GREAT! We really enjoyed the 10 episodes based on the Dark Horse Comic.
Starring Alan Tudyk (“Firefly”, “28 Days”, “Death at a Funeral”) who we absolutely love!

12:20pm: We fell asleep at 9:00am. And we woke up just before Noon.
We needed that nap. And now we are awake.
We took the dog outside. It’s a beautiful day outside today.Screen Shot 2021-05-21 at 13.19.05
Going to be beautiful all week!  “Always in motion is the future.”

Friday Pursuit ends at Highland and Delongpre in Hollywood.
Spike strip. Jeep fishtailing wildly.
Traffic accident – Hits a car and loses the front end and the rear shell.
Out of control – hits the Ryder truck head-on at slow speed.
Tries to reverse several times, but no steering or front wheels.
LAPD rear ends the car and traps it. Short standoff. Non-lethal weapons deployed.
LAPD moves in, maces and then pulls driver from the car. Suspect in custody.

YEAH IT’S FRIDAY!

2:15pm: We drank another cup of espresso. We took the dogs outside.
On The Menu: we ate three slices of leftover pizza for lunch.

“Adventure. Excitement. A Jedi craves not these things.”

6:00pm: We took a nap. We slept for a couple hours.
We were going to do errands today, but nothing was time sensitive, so we didn’t.
Maybe on Monday. The dogs went outside. The dogs got fed supper.

It’s National Rescue Dog Day! (Get A Free Dog!) Adopt a pet if you can!

BREAKING NEWS:

Knott’s Berry Farm theme park re-opens for California residents today.
(Knott’s actually re-opened for season passholders last week)
The Magic Castle in Hollywood re-opens tonight (limited capacity).
The Bachanal Buffet at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas re-opened yesterday.
(all-you-can-eat and serve yourself – no masks required if fully vaccinated)

Spain (the European country) will reopen on June 7, 2021
to all fully vaccinated people,
regardless of their country of origin.
And we have friends who are vacationing in Tahiti right now. Kinda JEALOUS!

It’s National Talk Like Yoda Day and “May the Force be with you.”
How to talk like Yoda:
In the English language, sentences are usually in the order subject, verb, object.
For example –
Yoda (subject) is (verb) a Jedi Master (object).
So instead order the sentence 
object, subject, verb instead.
“Yoda is a Jedi Master” would be “A Jedi Master, Yoda is.”
Extra-Credit: To sound like him, try making the back of your throat vibrate as you speak.
Yoda
“Do or do not. There is no try.”

8:40pm: Good Shabbos! We fell asleep again and just woke up.
We made an iced mocha and ate our dessert first, before dinner.
No shame. And so we’ll eat dinner later.

National Strawberries and Cream Day
and it’s also National Strawberry Month
img_0746

The strawberry fruit was mentioned in ancient Roman literature in reference to its medicinal use. The garden strawberry was first bred in the 1750s in Brittany, France, via a cross of Fragaria virginiana from eastern North America and Fragaria chiloensis, which was brought from Chile in 1714.

11:30pm: We ate some dinner. Chinese food leftovers. We took the dogs outside.
And then we ate a little ice cream for dessert.
On The Menu: Leftover Chinese food. Reheated the chicken and stringbeans.

A Busser (aka Busboy/Busgirl) works in the restaurant/catering industry clearing tables, taking dirty dishes to the dishwasher, setting tables, refilling drinks, and assisting the wait staff.
NOTE: the original term “omnibus boy,” was used to describe an employee of a restaurant whose job it was to do pretty much everything.

“Anger, fear, aggression. The dark side are they.”

WAKE UP! WTF? JUST FUCKING STOP WITH THE BULLSHIT.
Of course you’re always right. You know everything.
And you’re so much smarter than everyone else.
Everyone should listen to you, because you know it all.
Who needs this aggravation? Why can’t you just bend a little?
WHY DON’T YOU JUST SHUT THE FUCK UP AND LISTEN?

It’s World Goth Day. (Should you really wish someone a “Happy Goth Day?”)
Goth is a subculture that began in the United Kingdom during the early 1980s. It was developed by fans of gothic rock, an offshoot of the post-punk music genre.

13267900_1400669836626245_3700816958198521731_n

The Cure Live in Washington on Periscope

Goth is a music based subculture so your music taste must contain Goth music!
(and/or post-punk goth rock, second wave goth rock, darkwave, deathrock, coldwave, ethereal wave music, and death metal) World Goth Day originated in the UK in 2009.
NOTE: Remember Goth and Gothic are two different things. Gothic refers to 12th century French architecture and a 18th century literature style whereas Goth refers to members of the modern day post-punk scene. And DON’T BE A POSEUR!  

10:05am: F*CK.

It’s International Sherlock Holmes Day – Happy birthday Sir Arthur Conan Doyle!
Sherlock Holmes is a fictional private detective created by British author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Holmes and Doctor Watson first appeared in “A Study in Scarlet” in 1887.

no_shit_sherlock
“NO SHIT SHERLOCK!” (vulgar, colloquial, sarcastic, somewhat derogatory)
A sarcastic response to someone who has just said something obvious.
no shit
(“an expression of amazement”) + Sherlock (“a fictional detective who makes ingenious deductions”). The expression is believed to have originated between the 1940’s to 1950’s.

11:55am: Did we take a nap with the dog? Waiting. WAITING. Still waiting….
12:30pm: FUCK YES! Sweet Relief! We took the dogs outside.
We cleaned out the fridge. And then we started cleaning the kitchen.
1:45pm: Pizzatime.
On The Menu: the last three slices of leftover pizza. We feel much better now.
2:15pm: And we just made an iced coffee. It’s a beautiful day.

Sunday, May 23, 2021 – World Turtle’s Day!
Are you a Turtle? (“You bet your sweet ass I am!”)

1:30am: We took a short nap after dinner. And so we just woke up.
We baked a half dozen chocolate chip cookies and ate two.

3:00am: LIVE from Central LA on YouTube. Amazing.
Just watched LAFD pull someone out of a car using the “Jaws of Life” LIVE too.
And we love SMOKE’N’SCAN II live on YouTube following the Police Scanners!
Screen Shot 2021-05-23 at 03.16.12

5:20am: We took the dogs outside again. The little boy ate something he wasn’t supposed to and threw up a few times in the “play pen” so we cleaned it up and now he’s sleeping in there.
And we just ate two more chocolate chip cookies and drank a cup of espresso.
Drink Coffee. Drink Water. Don’t Panic.
We get really stressed when one of the dogs (or any animal) is sick or injured.
So we’re watching him sleep and making sure he doesn’t throw up again.

Title Track Day!
When the best track on the album is also the album title.

I have an office…Gold Records on the wall.

3:10pm: Recapping the morning. We fell asleep and woke up about 9:00am.
We took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs.
The little boy didn’t eat. That’s not good. So we took the dogs outside again.
And they were chillin’ with us in the Home Office all day.
And we went outside again and again, so they could do business if necessary.
We just tried to feed the little boy some white rice and carrot but he didn’t eat.
(Yeah, we made some white rice). So now we’ll wait until suppertime and try again.
We took the dogs outside again and now they’re napping in the bedroom.
Choreboy was here. We cleaned the “play pen” and laundered the dog beds.
We vacuumed the Home Office and started our “Spring Cleaning” and purge.

10:35pm: Recapping Sunday evening.
We took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs. The little boy was hungry and ate.
He ate his entire supper and a little extra rice and carrots from earlier.
He seems to fine now. We took them outside. And outside again.
They were in the Home Office this evening after we finished cleaning for the day.
And now they are in the bedroom napping, so we can figure out dinner.
All we ate today was a dill pickle, a toasted cheese sandwich, and the two remaining chocolate chip cookies, so we’re kinda hungry now. And we just drank a cup of espresso.

We watched TV, surfed the interweb (mostly YouTube), and watched the original “Fun With Dick and Jane” again (with George Segal RIP, Jane Fonda, and Ed McMahon)


Monday, May 24, 2021 – MONDAYMONDAYMONDAY
Happy birthday Tommy Chong!
Happy birthday Bob Dylan!
Happy birthday John C. Reilly!
Happy birthday Queen Victoria! (G-d Save the Queen!)) RIP

NOTE: We can’t set up another Blog Post right now, so Monday gets added here.

8:45am: So little boy was fine all night, then he woke us up this morning,
he’s so smart, he let us know he had to go out… and we took the dogs outside.
And then he threw up outside, and had diarrhea, and then didn’t want to eat chicken and rice for breakfast, so now we’re really worried about him. VERY FRUSTRATED THIS MORNING.
And we didn’t sleep enough, and the housekeeper is coming to clean today, and we actually have stuff to do for a change…. and we just want to go back to bed again. STAY TUNED.
Oh, and we fed the dogs, got the newspapers, and had a cup of espresso.

9:20am: We took the dogs outside again. And now they’re resting the bedroom.
Time for Breakfast! We didn’t really eat yesterday. So we had to stop and make food.
On The Menu: Steak and Eggs. Thin-cut NY steak, 2 eggs over medium, a toasted croissant with butter, a swig of orange juice and an iced espresso to drink
Justed banged it out, ate, and we feel a little better now.
188922171_4786486291377899_1642535258805390034_n

1:15pm: We took the dogs outside again. Then we went back to bed.
We slept for a little bit and then took the dogs outside again.
It’s a beautiful day outside, but it’s HOT. Currently 91 degrees in the backyard. HOT.
The housekeeper was here and cleaned.
She just left, so now we’re going to go to the kitchen and make an iced coffee.

1:40pm: We made an iced coffee. We took the dogs outside again.

5:15pm: FUCK. We took a little nap. We woke up and took the dogs outside.
Now we are going to take the little boy to the urgent care Veterinarian….

189840125_4787718947921300_1915699553588018042_n

9:15pm: We took a shower. We fed the little girl.
And then we took the little boy to the vet. And we waited. And waited.
NOTE: Our regular Vet wouldn’t do an Emergency appointment when we called at 4:40pm.
The Woodland Hills Pet Emergency was BOOKED SOLID and couldn’t see him,
so we drove to Studio City and they saw him at our backup Vet Clinic.
*****So he appears to be okay, which is a total relief!***** Only $540
But the throwing up and bloody diarrhea made us STRESS HARD….
And we left him at the vet for 1-2 hours as required and went home.
We took the little girl outside and she is doing fine.
Now we’re chilling in the Home Office waiting for the call to go back and pick him up.
And they just texted! 935pm

188509232_4788226987870496_8623985685785143482_n

Tuesday 12:35am: Recapping our Monday evening.
So we drove back to Studio City and picked up the little boy at the Vet.
He was very happy to see his “human” and happy to go home.
So he’s on medication for a week. But he seems to be okay now.
We didn’t eat, so we made a quick dinner. We cooked the frozen pizza,
and then we picked up the pup, and then we reheated the pizza before eating it.

On The Menu: Frozen pepperoni pizza with cheese, folded in half.
We ate the whole thing at midnight and drank an iced espresso.

1:45am: The morning after. And it’s only 2:00am.
We fell asleep after 10:30pm with the dog and just woke up.
We took the dog outside.
And we got something in our right eye, and it’s really irritating.

1:00pm: And now we have a very RED EYE today. Like, seek medical attention time.
We watched Marvel’s “Avengers- Endgame” finally this morning.
And then we took the dog outside and the dogs got fed. And then we went to bed.
We hoped our eye would be better, but it’s not. And it’s swollen and hurts too.
FUCK.FUCK.FUCK.FUCK.FUCK.FUCK.FUCK.FUCK.FUCK.FUCK.FUCK.FUCK.
And we drank a cup of espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.

“Health officials in the state of California are tracking at least SIX COVID-19 variants”

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

The COVID-19 UK variant is 64% more likely to kill you.
25% of new cases are UK variant, and it is now the dominant strain in California.

Take care of your body Exercise regularly. Get plenty of sleep.
Try to eat healthy, well-balanced meals. Avoid alcohol and drugs. (yeah, right)

*FULLY VACCINATED means TWO WEEKS after the second dose! 
You are not fully vaccinated after the first dose,
and you are not fully vaccinated until TWO WEEKS after the second dose.
TWO WEEKS AFTER THE SECOND DOSE!
Vaccines don’t stop you from spreading the virus!
Vaccines may protect you from getting really sick,
and may prevent death if you contract COVID-19.
YOU CAN STILL GET SICK AND DIE.
YOU CAN STILL SUFFER FROM LONG-TERM EFFECTS.
YOU CAN STILL GET OTHER PEOPLE SICK.

Reach out and stay connected.
Talk with people you trust and tell them how you are feeling.
Check in with your loved ones often.

Recapping Wednesday:
It kinda sucked. Then we got hungry.
We watched TV and surfed the interweb. Our right eye was all fucked up.
Not the vision, but it’s red and irritated, and annoying.
Periodically during the day we flush it with warm water.
Sometime after 9:00pm we turned off the lights and laid down, and fell asleep.

On The Menu: Pizzatime! We ordered an early pizza delivery, around 6:00pm.
And an extra-large pepperoni and sausage pizza appeared – YUM YUM!

Earth is approximately 4.6 billion years old. The oldest known rocks are about 4 billion years old (rocks older than 3 billion years are rare) and the oldest fossils of living organisms are less than 3.9 billion years old. With a radius of 3,959 miles, Earth is the biggest of the known terrestrial planets, and the fifth largest in our solar system.

“Picture a bright blue ball just spinning, spinning free
Dizzy with eternity
Paint it with a skin of sky, brush in some clouds and sea
Call it home for you and me
A peaceful place, or so it looks from space
A closer look reveals the human race
Full of hope, full of grace, is the human face
But afraid we may lay our home to waste”
– Grateful Dead “Throwing Stones”

The name “Earth” is at least 1,000 years old and it is the only planet whose name doesn’t come from from Greek or Roman mythology. The name is from Old English and Germanic origins and means “ground”.

Nature is a Mother…. 
figure-01-seismo_lab-news-web

71 Percent of the Earth’s surface is covered with water. Earth’s atmosphere is 77% nitrogen, 21% oxygen, with traces of argon, carbon dioxide and water (H20). Earth’s oceans have an average depth of about 2.5 miles and contains 97 percent of the planet’s water. Earth has a central (inner and outer) core, a rocky mantle and a solid crust.

9:40am: We went to bed again after 6:00am and slept for a couple hours.
We woke up. The dogs went outside. The dogs got fed breakfast.
We drank a cup of espresso. And our eye is a little better this morning.
Doesn’t look better, but it feels a lot better today. Just going to wait it out.
It’s gray outside this morning, and not sunny yet.

11:20am: We made another cup of espresso. The sun is coming out.
The housekeeper is here again today. So we are chillin’ in the Home Office.

And it’s also National Jelly Bean Day!
Enjoy the sweet classic candy with a soft chewy center and a thin candy coating.

Fun Facts about Jelly Beans:

Became popular in the 1860s, when William Schrafft, a Boston candy maker,
encouraged people to send jelly beans to Union soldiers fighting the Civil War.

Jelly beans were originally a popular Christmas candy.
The candy became an Easter staple in the 1930s because of its egg shape.

Jelly beans were once sold separately by color.
And they were the first candy sold by weight instead of by the piece.
It can take seven to twenty-one days to make jelly beans.

The blueberry-flavored Jelly Belly was created for Ronald Reagan’s inauguration.
Jelly beans were his favorite candy and they have even been to space (thanks to Reagan).

Enough jelly beans to circle the Earth five times are eaten every year!


Jelly Bean Shot

Ingredients:
1/2 oz Blackberry Brandy (or Grenadine)
1/2 oz Anisette (or Sambuca, anise-flavored liqueur)
1/2 oz Southern Comfort

Directions:
Pour Brandy (or Grenadine) into a tall shot glass
Float the Anisette (or Sambuca) on top of the Brandy
Float the Southern Comfort on top of the Anisette
Serve and enjoy

How to “Float” (Bartending 101):
Hold a bar spoon upside down over the drink and rest the spoon’s tip on the inner edge of the glass, just above the top of the liquid. Slowly pour over the back of the bar spoon and onto the top of the previous ingredient. Move the spoon up as the liquor level rises.

The key is in the three layers of liqueurs: poured on top of each other in order with the heaviest on the bottom and the lightest on top. “Float” the liqueurs by pouring them over the back of a bar spoon. This creates a pretty triple-layered shot. The ingredients have specific densities that make the separation easy. The greater the density difference, the more defined their separation. Density is determined by the sugar and alcohol content. Grenadine is one of the heaviest mixers used for cocktails and will almost always sink to the bottom of the glass, even if it is the last ingredient added.
NOTE: The Anisette will give the drink a “black licorice” jelly bean taste.

Jägermeister is a type of liqueur called Kräuterlikör (herbal liqueur).
You can substitute it for the Anisette/Sambuca or just do a shot or two of Jäger!
“Jägermeister is a digestif made with 56 herbs and spices. Developed in 1934 by Wilhelm and Curt Mast, it has an alcohol by volume of 35%. The recipe has not changed since its creation and continues to be served in its signature green glass bottle.” – from wikipedia


Fruity Jelly Bean Shot!

Ingredients:
1/2 oz Blue Curacao
1/2 oz Pineapple Juice
1/2 oz Cherry Vodka

Directions:
Pour blue curaçao into tall shot glass.
Gently float pineapple juice on top.
Finish with a float of cherry vodka.

4:45pm: We drank an iced espresso. We took the dogs outside and we had the dogs in the Home Office. It never really got sunny today. We took a nap with the dog. We ate two slices of cold leftover pizza. We watched the news. We surfed the interweb. And that’s Thursday right? It’s all good today. We woke up from our nap and the housekeeper was gone and the house is clean. The dogs are happy and they were groomed yesterday, so they are pretty clean too.
And the dogs just went outside again.

Earth orbits the sun and completes one daily rotation every 23.9 hours. It takes 365.25 days to complete a one year trip around the sun.  The Earth’s axis is tilted 23.4 degrees to the plane of the planet’s orbit around the sun and this causes the cycle of seasons.

Earth is the only known planet that has a single moon. The moon is (an average distance of) 238,855 miles away from Earth.

“Just remember that you’re standing on a planet that’s evolving
And revolving at 900 miles an hour.
It’s orbiting at 19 miles a second, so it’s reckoned,
The sun that is the source of all our power.”

NATIONAL DAY OF SILENCE – (a day-long vow of silence to) protest bullying and harassment of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) students and the people that support them!

Screen Shot 2021-04-22 at 21.04.44
Vegas was active on the Thursday night Livestream from Las Vegas, Nevada.
(not as busy as last week though – March Madness and Spring Break)
New hotels/casinos Circa and Virgin are OPEN! Summertime is coming!
The new Resorts World (Hilton/Conrad/Conracks) is scheduled to open in June.
Restrictions and Regulations have been relaxed, or ignored, or been given lip service.
The Low-Rollers keep coming to spend their stimulus money and take a cheap vacation.
The hotels are re-opening what was closed, taking reservations, and everyone is hiring!
Businesses are having a hard time finding low-wage employees now.
It’s very hard to get an UBER or LYFT, because there aren’t enough drivers working.
And there’s a shortage of rental cars, as we mentioned previously, so rates are sky high.

12:50pm: Hello Friday! We went to bed early and woke up late.
We took the dogs outside. The dogs got fed. We took the dogs outside again.
We went back to sleep with the dogs. We woke up and drank a cup of espresso.
We took the dogs outside again. And now we’re in the Home Office chillin’.

1:35pm: We took the dogs outside again. Now time for some lunch.
On The Menu: 3 toasted mini-bagels with lox, cream cheese, and lettuce, dill pickle,
and cran-raspberry-orange juice to drink

5:25pm: Friday evening. Another week. Another weekend.
Waiting for our second shot….. staying home. Staying healthy.
No parties. No dinners out. No going out in public except when necessary.
We should have done some errands today, but we said f*ck it.
We hung out with the dogs. We took the dogs outside. We took a nap.

There were TWO PURSUITS this afternoon!
The first was over quickly, guy stole a Fire Truck – Battalion Chief’s SUV, and then he pulled over when the tires got flat and surrendered. The second dude, a DUI suspect (who was seen drinking during the chase) called the cops on himself, then ran it up from freeway to surface streets, through traffic, and all around town, before they finally PIT maneuvered him.
And he was just sitting there on the curb (not complying with officer’s orders) until the K-9 unit arrived and then he quickly surrendered when the dog started barking. HAHA.
Screen Shot 2021-04-23 at 14.47.23

5:50pm: We just set up the dogs’ supper in the kitchen and now it’s feeding time.

6:25pm: And the dogs are fed. And we took them outside on both sides.
Now we’re all back chilling’ in the Home Office watching “BBC World News”
and network and local news too.
6:50pm: And now they’re all asleep. It’s like having happy tired children.
GOOD SHABBOS EVERYONE! We’re getting hungry for our dinner now.

And there was another pursuit! We didn’t watch it, and it was over before we tuned in.
A suspected carjacker was being tracked and he just pulled over and surrendered.

AND DOES ANYONE CARE ABOUT THE OSCARS?
The Academy Awards are happening on Sunday. Who’s going to watch?
Elton John is having his Oscar party online and everyone’s invited for $.
(of course the money goes to charity)
We don’t know who’s nominated, or why. We heard “diversity” which is hilarious.
The OSCARS ARE SO WHITE and SO “INDUSTRY INSIDER” RUN.
At least Harvey Weinstein is in prison. We hate the ceremony for it’s ADVERTISING.
Both onstage, onscreen, and during the many commercials. Even the Red Carpet is just product placement and advertising – “promote your sh*t to the public” is the game.
And we’ll have an awards show where we give each other prizes for “best whatever”….

10:35pm: We ate a little cheese and a toasted croissant. We drank an iced espresso.
We took the dogs outside again. Now it’s time for dinner. What shall we have to eat?

We never did decide what to eat.
Instead we ate a black&white cookie and called that dinner.

Safe for people over the age of 18. Women under the age of 50 are subject to side effects.

The benefits outweigh the risk. Believe the SCIENCE!

It sunk off Bali. And now they’ve run out of air. RIP

CV! Part 143 – PASSOVER 2021! (Sunday-Mon-Tues)

CV! Part 143 – PASSOVER 2021! (Sunday-Mon-Tues)

ubfuqqa0aj321

Sunday, March 28, 2021 – Happy Passover!
Happy Holi! Happy Palm Sunday.
Happy Birthday Lady Gaga!
National Black Forest Cake Day!

Happy Holi! The ancient Hindu festival of Holi, is known as the “Festival of Love”, the “Festival of Colors”, and the “Festival of Spring”. The holiday celebrates the arrival of spring, the end of winter, the blossoming of love, and a good a spring harvest. Holi also celebrates the triumph of good over evil, symbolizes by the end of winter.

On this day in 1979, there was a major accident at Pennsylvania’s Three Mile Island nuclear power plant. Reactor number 2 overheated, suffered a partial meltdown, and then a radiation leak.

Today, the TMI-2 reactor is permanently shut down and 99% of its fuel has been removed. The reactor coolant system is fully drained and the radioactive water decontaminated and evaporated. The accident’s radioactive waste was shipped off site to an appropriate disposal area, and the reactor fuel and core debris was shipped to the Department of Energy’s Idaho National Laboratory. In 2001, FirstEnergy acquired TMI-2 from GPU. FirstEnergy has contracted the monitoring of TMI-2 to Exelon, the current owner and operator of TMI-1. The companies plan to keep the TMI-2 facility in long term, monitored storage until the TMI-1 plant ceases operations, at which time both plants will be decommissioned. – http://www.nrc.gov

On this day in 1986, “We Are The World” was played at the same time on radio stations everywhere. It was written/recorded in 1985 to raise money for African famine victims and was remade/rereleased in 2010 for victims of the earthquake in Haiti. The song saw a comeback in March 2020 after the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak. USA for Africa! 

We are the world, We are the children,
We are the ones who make a brighter day, so let’s start giving
There’s a choice we’re making, We’re saving our own lives,
It’s true we’ll make a better day, just you and me”

4:30am: Just woke up. We took the dogs outside. We made a cup of espresso.
We also ate some strawberries and a chocolate macaroon.
There was a missed text message from earlier on our cell phone.
Terrible news. Our friend’s brother died. We don’t have any details.
But we are very sad now.

We watched two of Doug Stanhope’s comedy specials and then we
watched the Brody Stevens’ (RIP) comedy special on Amazon Prime last night.
We also went down the Youtube hole again and watched a bunch of vids.

Steven James Brody (May 22, 1970 – February 22, 2019)  known as Steven Brody Stevens, was a genius stand-up comedian, the “Prince of Periscope” and an actor who suffered from mental illness and sadly killed himself. We miss his weird and angry comedy.

8:20am: We fell asleep again. We woke up.
The dogs went outside. The dogs got fed. We drank a cup of espresso.

“Face masks, hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes and other PPE
are now tax deductible medical expenses, the IRS announced.”

12:50pm: Well, it’s a beautiful day! Sunday! Sunday! Springtime!

And we are Choreboy again today! Doing laundry! Cleaned out the fridge.
Cleaned up the kitchen a little. Did some dishes and pots and pans.

We just heated up the last of the leftover pizza from the other night
and ate it for lunch with some fruit punch gatorade to drink.

10:00pm: Recapping Sunday!
Choreboy scooped a lot of poop, cleaned the yard, and did some more laundry.
We slept for awhile. We woke up and took the dogs outside.
And the dogs got fed supper and we took the dogs outside again.
We drank a cup of espresso and ate some leftover BBQ chicken pizza.
(we had to scrap the cilantro off, because we didn’t want it to go to waste)
We turned everything off and just enjoyed the silence for a couple hours.
We took the dogs outside again
and now we’re back chillin’ in the Home Office on Sunday night.
We also emptied the dishwasher and put away the dishes.
And we did another load of laundry.
Choreboy is not quite done, but he is done for now.

THE FOURTH WAVE IS HERE!
“THE SPRING BREAK SURGE” = COVID-19 Infection rates are rising again.
People are being careless. People aren’t wearing masks. People are STUPID.
We watched the Livestreams from Las Vegas this weekend,

And more businesses are continuing to “RE-OPEN”: Theme parks (Disneyland and Magic Mountain will re-open next week) and sporting events, restaurants and movie theaters, schools (LAUSD announced they will re-open for in-person teaching in April) and religious institutions.

COVID-19 is the leading cause of death in the United States…..

George Perry Floyd RIP

The trial of Derek Chauvin, the ex-police officer,

Eight Minutes and Forty-Six Seconds. Nine Minutes and Twenty-Nine Seconds.
(RODNEY KING! RODNEY KING! RODNEY KING!) It was Homicide.

We drank another espresso. We took the dogs outside.
We ate 2 toasted English muffins with peanut butter and raspberry jam.
We made an iced espresso. We have the dogs with us in the Home Office.
And it’s Monday morning again.

The container ship EverGiven that was blocking the Suez Canal was freed today.
Cargo ships are sailing through it again, there’s a massive backup that needs to clear,
and there will be toilet paper (and other imported products) for April and May.

Recapping Monday at 2:00am on Tuesday morning.
The dogs got fed and went outside. We fell asleep. We woke up.
We took the dogs outside. We watched TV and surfed the interweb.
We took the dogs outside again. We ate some food.

We fell asleep for an hour, woke up, and took the dogs outside again.
Now the dogs are sleeping in the Home Office.
And now it’s Tuesday. Maybe we had a case of the Mondays yesterday.

NATIONAL DOCTORS’ DAY! – has some extra-special meaning this year!
The first observance of Doctors Day was on March 30, 1933, in Winder, Georgia.
On this day in 1842, Ether was first used as an anesthetic for surgery and was administered by Crawford W. Long, M.D. A red carnation is worn as the symbol for National Doctors Day.

97355017_10163569631520298_108194095951773696_n

Some people shouldn’t be Doctors. Some people should be in prison.
The Trump stooges now admit they failed, and that they lied for Trump.
They sacrificed American Lives for politics over human life. 
They violated the Hippocratic Oath. THEY DID HARM! PEOPLE DIED! 
They should never practice medicine again. Take their licenses away!
HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF US CITIZENS ARE DEAD BECAUSE OF THEM!
550000+ REPORTED COVID-19 DEATHS IN THE 
UNITED STATES!
FIVE HUNDRED FIFTY THOUSAND PLUS DEAD AMERICANS AS OF TODAY!
59000+ REPORTED COVID-19 DEATHS IN CALIFORNIA!

2:45am: We’re awake. We just made an iced espresso. We are so BORED.
Last night we watched the coyotes frolic on the neighbor’s lawn across the street.
We put on “Avengers, Age of Ultron”, but we’re going to stop it and start it over.
Just not now.

On this day in 1981, President Ronald Reagan, James Brady, and

11:40am: We took the dogs outside again. We got the mail.
We have to go the bank and we should go to the market too.
But we don’t want to go out unless we absolutely have to…..
And the bank can wait and we have food to eat today and tomorrow,
so, we’ll stay home and stay safe and social distance and self-isolate.
It’s a beautiful day. The temp should reach 80 degrees in the SFV today.

Universal Studios Hollywood announced that they will re-open April 16. 
Penn & Teller’s show will return to the Rio Hotel in Las Vegas on April 22. 
Many shows (stage, lounge, and comedy) have already resumed in Las Vegas
(with reduced audience capacity and/or in a larger venue/space). 

Carnival, MSC, Royal Caribbean, and Disney Cruise Line are now offering short Summer Cruises with June and July departure bookings out of Florida despite the “do not sail” order from the CDC. There will be mandatory COVID-19 “proof of vaccination” requirements.
DO NOT TRAVEL! – STAY HOME! STAY HEALTHY! – ZERO CONTACT! – NO CRUISING!

We didn’t go to the bank or the market, or do any errands today.
We watched some of the Derek Chauvin George Floyd Murder Trial.
We woke up and took the dogs outside. We made an iced espresso.
Almost time to feed the dogs their supper. Still a beautiful day outside.

We cooked, we made dinner. We fell asleep for a little bit.

We now have an appointment date and time for our first vaccination!
We waited for our turn, and we’ve been scheduled, fingers crossed now.
Only 25% of Californians in the 50-64 age range have been vaccinated so far…. 

Screen Shot 2021-03-23 at 22.06.42
*FULLY VACCINATED means TWO WEEKS after the second dose! 

You are not fully vaccinated after the first dose,
and you are not fully vaccinated until TWO WEEKS after the second dose.
TWO WEEKS AFTER THE SECOND DOSE!
Vaccines don’t stop you from spreading the virus!
Vaccines may protect you from getting really sick,
and may prevent death if you contract COVID-19.
YOU CAN STILL GET SICK AND DIE.
YOU CAN STILL SUFFER FROM LONG-TERM EFFECTS.
YOU CAN STILL GET OTHER PEOPLE SICK.

The COVID-19 UK variant is 64% more likely to kill you.
25% of new cases are UK variant, and it will soon be the dominant strain in California.

Going to the end of the line?
