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.

O Canada!

It’s CANADA DAY!
On the 154th anniversary of Canadian Confederation on July 1, 1867

The border remains closed and tourists won’t be able to cross until at least July 21. And at least 230 people died from the heat in British Columbia since last Friday.

It’s National US Postage Stamp Day!
The United States issued the first postage stamp on July 1, 1847.
Philately is the study of postage stamps and postal history.
And it’s also National Postal Worker Day!

On this day in 1964, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act.
BLACKLIVESMATTER!

5:45am: Friday morning. We’ve been awake for a little bit.
We took the dog outside. We made an iced espresso.
We are watching the stupid local news on KTLA. AND IT’S REALLY STUPID!

8:30am: We went back to bed and got woken up. The dogs got fed.
We made another iced espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.

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.

8:40am: We didn’t sleep well. We slept a little. We woke up.

3:36pm: We took a nap. We woke up. We took the dogs outside.

Its HOT out. And really bright out. .And we just wasted another hour….

4:20pm.

8:45pm: We made some food. Call it early dinner or late lunch.
We took the dogs outside. The dogs got fed. We took the dogs outside.

10:55pm: Called the police on the neighbors shooting off fireworks in their backyard again.
Scares the dogs. Annoys the shit out of us. Scares the birds and wild animals.
We are calling everytime from now on. LAPD is overburdened and it’s not an emergency.
And we just spent 22 minutes on HOLD waiting for LAPD Non-Emergency Operator.

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!

207408116_4605975222748426_2957338320549389981_n

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

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 fireworks show at El Caballero Country Club has got to be stopped!

We took the dogs outside. We made and ate dinner.

“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.
PLEASE READ OUR PREVIOUS CORONAVIRUS JOURNAL (CV!) BLOG POSTS!

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:

6:45am: Sunday Sunday Sunday….. we didn’t sleep.  Insomnia.
We feel sh*tty this morning. We tried to sleep a bunch of times,
but we couldn’t get comfortable, and we couldn’t fall asleep.
Now it’s time to feed the dogs and do the morning stuff.

183621497_10225140098913408_7709998714562238998_n

7:30am: We took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs.
We took the dogs outside again. We got the newspapers.
We drank a little cran-raspberry juice.
No coffee yet, because we still feel sh*tty.
And we’re back in the Home Office with the dogs now.

Take Time to Smell The Roses! (copyright 2013 JoshWillTravel)

11:50am: We went to bed and slept for a couple hours and now we feel better.
We took the dogs outside. We made an iced espresso. We surfed the interweb.
We made our Mother’s Day phone calls and now we have the long Sunday ahead.
And it’s a beautiful day outside today. Maybe we’ll swimming in the cement pond:
pool

11:15pm: Recapping Sunday. We didn’t do anything important.
We didn’t even Blog today. But we did call our Mom again.
We took a nap. We took the dogs outside.
We slept some more, because we didn’t sleep last night.
We watched “Bar Rescue” all day on TV. (co-created by one of our ex-clients)
We surfed the interweb and watched youtube vids.
We took the dogs outside. The dogs got fed. We took the dogs outside.
We ate two toasted mini-bagels with cream cheese and a small dill pickle.
We fell asleep. We woke up and took the dogs outside.
Now were all chilling’ in the Home Office again.
And we need to eat something, like dinner. Leftovers we don’t want to waste?

On The Menu: Leftover Thai food. 2 BBQ spareribs and some twice fried rice.

On this day 1503, Christopher Columbus ‘discovered’ the Cayman Islands

On this day in 1869, the Central Pacific and Union Pacific connected at Promontory Summit in Utah, and the Transcontinental Railroad was finished using the famous “Golden Spike”.

On this day in 1924, J. Edgar Hoover was appointed the first Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in Washington DC.

7:45am: And it’s Monday again.
We woke up, we took the dogs outside, we fed the dogs, we took the dogs outside.
We got the newspapers. We drank a cup of espresso and ate two toasted croissants.

10:10am: We drank another cup of espresso and took the dogs outside again.
The housekeeper just arrived and she is going to clean. So we are going to hide.
We are chillin’ in the Home Office with the dogs now. Happy Monday.


On this day in 1954, Bill Haley and The Comets released
“Rock Around The Clock” (the theme from “Happy Days”) – A VERY BIG HIT IN 1955!
Here they are appearing on the “Ed Sullivan Show” on August 7, 1955:

One, two, three o’clock, four o’clock, rock
Five, six, seven o’clock, eight o’clock, rock
Nine, ten, eleven o’clock, twelve o’clock, rock
We’re gonna rock around the clock tonight
Put your glad rags on and join me, hon
We’ll have some fun when the clock strikes one
We’re gonna rock around the clock tonight
We’re gonna rock, rock, rock, ’til broad daylight
We’re gonna rock, gonna rock, around the clock tonight
When the clock strikes two, three and four
If the band slows down we’ll yell for more
We’re gonna rock around the clock tonight
We’re gonna rock, rock, rock, ’til broad daylight
We’re gonna rock, gonna rock, around the clock tonight
When the chimes ring five, six and seven
We’ll be right in seventh heaven
We’re gonna rock around the clock tonight
We’re gonna rock, rock, rock, ’til broad daylight
We’re gonna rock, gonna rock, around the clock tonight
When it’s eight, nine, ten, eleven too
I’ll be goin’ strong and so will you
We’re gonna rock around the clock tonight
We’re gonna rock, rock, rock, ’til broad daylight
We’re gonna rock, gonna rock, around the clock tonight
When the clock strikes twelve, we’ll cool off then
Start a rockin’ round the clock again
We’re gonna rock around the clock tonight
We’re gonna rock, rock, rock, ’til broad daylight
We’re gonna rock, gonna rock, around the clock tonight
(written by Max C. Freedman and James E. Myers)

William John Clifton Haley, Jr. (aka the “Father of Rock and Roll”)
born July 6, 1925, Highland Park, Michigan, US
died February 9, 1981, Harlingen, Texas

Other songs by Bill Haley:
“See You Later, Alligator”, “Shake, Rattle and Roll”,
“Rocket 88”, “Skinny Minnie”, and “Razzle Dazzle”

Also on this day in 1910, Halley’s Comet made its closest approach to Earth!


5:00pm: Hey it’s FIVE O’CLOCK. We waited for the housekeeper to leave.
We took the dogs outside and we spent the afternoon chillin’.  One more week.
We took the dogs outside again. And the day went by relatively quick.
So, we just took the dogs outside again and now we’re back in the Home Office.
We haven’t eaten anything today, except for those croissants,
and we prepped some food and it’s waiting in kitchen. So let’s eat!

5:25pm: We ate. Meatless Monday. Okay.
On The Menu: Two toasted cheese sandwiches on sourdough.
And an iced espresso to drink. Drink Coffee. Drink Water. Eat Cheese.
184895988_4741346465891882_1824455710944196451_n

8:30pm: We got woken up from our nap by our cel phone…. F*CK.
We fell asleep after we fed the dogs. We took them outside before and after.
And then we crashed out for almost an hour an half with the dogs. F*ck.
So we’re almost awake again now.

11:05pm: Same news all day long. Blah blah Blah blah Blah.
We took the dogs outside again. We thought about food.
We didn’t eat. We made an iced mocha. Iced mocha lot.
And we took the dogs outside again. It’s a nice cool night in the SFV.
Maybe tomorrow we’ll go out and do some errands.

edddd
Guess what happened today? HAHAHAHAHA.
We got the mail, and we got some mail from the CA EDD.
We couldn’t get through to EDD on the telephone, so we emailed our contact at our Assemblyman’s office who helped us with our Claim problem (see our previous Blog Posts about Filing for California Unemployment, the Employment Development Department FAILS, and the criminal activity by Bank of America and their Executives). JUST TOTAL FRAUD.
But the Assemblyman’s staffer has a direct contact at EDD and helped us again!
We needed to Backdate our Claim, because we were originally late to file….
and today we received the claim forms for the weeks that needed claiming!
In fact DUPLICATE CLAIM FORMS! And they were weekly, instead of bi-weekly,
so we got FOURTEEN envelopes from EDD today,
with 14 claim forms, 14 cover letters, and 14 return envelopes.
184210541_4741347979225064_1858232460840437283_n
AND THEN WE CERTIFIED ONLINE!!!!! Paperless.
Because the payments get mailed faster.
MORE WASTE. MORE BAD MANAGEMENT! AND JUST PAR FOR THE COURSE.
WE DON’T HAVE THE FUNDS ADDED ELECTRONICALLY
TO THE BofA BANK CARD BECAUSE OF BofA AND OTHER FRAUD!

BIG THANKS TO CA ASSEMBLYMAN JESSE GABRIEL FOR ACTUALLY HELPING HIS CONSTITUENTS! BIG THANKS TO OUR CONTACT IN HIS OFFICE FOR SAVING US!


DO NOT TRAVEL! STAY THE FUCK HOME AND STAY HEALTHY!

NOTE: The CDC made a significant change to their COVID-19 guidelines last week.
Anyone infected with COVID-19 can spread it, even if they DO NOT have symptoms.
COVID-19 is aerosolized and can be transmitted at distances greater than six feet!

COVID-19 IS SPREAD IN THREE MAIN WAYS:

  1. Breathing in air when close to an infected person who is exhaling small droplets and particles that contain the virus. Inhalation of air carrying very small fine droplets and aerosol particles that contain infectious virus. Risk of transmission is greatest within three to six feet of an infectious source, but the virus is aerosolized and can be transmitted at distances greater than six feet (and in any poorly ventilated or enclosed space).
  2. Having these small droplets and particles that contain virus land on the eyes, nose, or mouth, especially through splashes and sprays like a cough or sneeze. Deposition of virus carried in exhaled droplets and particles onto exposed mucous membranes (“splashes and sprays”, such as being coughed on). Risk of transmission is greatest close to an infectious source where these exhaled droplets and particles are concentrated.
  3. Touching eyes, nose, or mouth with contaminated hands that have the virus on them. Touching mucous membranes with hands soiled by exhaled respiratory fluids containing virus or from touching inanimate surfaces contaminated with virus.

Cases of reinfection with COVID-19 have been reported, but are rare​.​
And COVID-19 can spread from people to animals in some situations.
Pet cats and dogs can become infected after close contact with infected people.

And the FDA approved the Pfizer vaccine for children 12-15 years old today.
Now we wait for the CDC to agree and say okay. Get them all vaccinated!

Did you see the report on the CALL BOTS? TOTAL FAIL!
Now you need to pay someone to call the EDD for you, using a computer program,
if you want to get through and speak to the EDD – if not you won’t get through.
CALL VOLUME EXCEEDS THE EDD’s CAPABILITIES TO RESPOND!
And if you do get through, the service people aren’t trained to help you!
EDD HASN’T IMPROVED ANYTHING! THEY ARE LYING!
BofA is committing criminal fraud and holding people’s money!
Instead of wasting time trying to call EDD,
CALL YOUR CONGRESS PEOPLE, THE GOVERNOR’s OFFICE
AND YOUR CALIFORNIA STATE REPS! PRESSURE THEM TO ACT!

10:55am: Good morning. May the Fourth. Dave Brubeck Day! TAKE FIVE!

11:20am: We woke up. The dogs went outside and got fed.
The dogs went outside. We went back to bed. We woke up.
We drank a cup of espresso and a little orange juice.
It’s NATIONAL ORANGE JUICE DAY!
Drink Orange Juice! Drink Coffee. Drink Water.
And we took the dog outside again.
We got the newspapers and the mail. It’s a beautiful day in the SFV.
Going to be HOT. Might hit 90 degrees later. And now we’re hungry.

11:55am: We ate a toasted cheese sandwich on sourdough
and made an iced espresso to drink.


NATIONAL CANDIED ORANGE PEEL DAY
Strips of orange peel cooked in sugar syrup until they are soft and chewy.
They can be sugar coated or dipped in chocolate for extra fun.

Candied Orange Peel

Ingredients:
3 Oranges – navel or Valencia
2-1/4 Cups Sugar (granulated)
1-1/8 Water
Sugar for coating and/or Chocolate for dipping (optional)

Directions:
Prep and Blanche the Peel:
Rinse  and clean three navel or Valencia oranges.
Cut the top and bottom off each orange. Score the skin into quarters.
Remove the skin (both peel and pith). Cut into strips about ¼” wide.
(eat or save the peeled oranges for other use)
In a medium saucepan, place the strips of peel and cover with cold water.
Blanch the peels: Bring the water to a boil. When the water boils, drain the water from the orange peel strips. Rinse in fresh cold water. Repeat at least two more times.
Blanching removes any bitter flavor in the orange peel. (TIP: Blanch the peels 4-5 times).
Drain the water and place the peels in a bowl.

Sugar Syrup:
Use the same saucepan, and whisk together 2-¼ cups sugar and 1-⅛ cups water.
Bring the mixture to a simmer over a low heat.
Cook 8-9 minutes at a constant simmer, adjust the heat, and make sure it doesn’t boil.
Add the orange peel. Cook about 45 minutes to 1 hour on medium-low heat, until the white pith is translucent (not white), adjust heat as needed – maintain the simmer, keep from boiling.
Swirl the pan occasionally to make sure that all of the peels get covered with syrup.
DO NOT STIR, this will cause crystallation.
Drain the cooked syrup from the orange peels – (set aside and save for another recipe).
Toss the peels in a bowl of sugar to coat, or dip in melted chocolate and let set. (optional),
Transfer to a drying rack. When they are dry, store them in an airtight container.


1:30pm: FUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCK

2;30pm: We took the dogs outside again.
And there was a steady stream of visitors to our door today beyond the Postman,
Even the water delivery guy who usually comes on Wednesday, is here right now.
NOTE: We have a new water guy, who we just met. Seems like a very nice fellow.
But people are so annoying sometimes. REALLY!
NO SOLICITORS! NO TELEMARKETERS!
STOP SMASHING US WITH ADVERTISING FOR THINGS WE DON’T WANT!

BIRD DAY! – “Shhhhssshhh! You’ll wake the damn birds!”

Remembering Lee Weisel
Dad 1

May his memory be a blessing.

Skiing with Dad in Park City, Utah (or Lake Tahoe, California)
We used to have great travel adventures. Motorhome trips, ski vacations,
Yosemite, Hawaii, Four Corners, a BiCentennial Tour of the east coast
(Washington DC, Philadelphia, Colonial Williamsburg, Connecticut),
family trips to Chicago and Palm Springs and New York, Big Sur,
San Diego, there was a Dude Ranch, and fishing trips, and Las Vegas……

Motor Home Camping in Yosemite (late 1970s)

And our family co-owned a beach house in Ventura, California, just below Rincon, too.
So we would often “weekend at beach” on the coast north of Los Angeles.

We played piano with Herbie Hancock when he would stay at our house.

We went to more than a few rock concerts when we were a kid.
Read our previous Blog Posts if you’re really interested in some rock and roll history.
We once took a Motor Home trip to Circus-Circus in Las Vegas and went backstage
and under the bleachers when Black Oak Arkansas performed in August 1973.

NOTE: My father was one of the Executive Producers and my brother and I were drafted as unpaid actors (extras) to appear in the scenes with the “kid roles”. We met Buddy Hackett and visited the Old Lincoln Heights Jail location in Downtown Los Angeles back when it was really scary! I also spent a lot of time in the Production Offices, visited the set, watched and learned about the film editing/post production process, and attended the “premier screening” of the film.

So, Dad also did some movie deals, and was involved in some other film productions.
He also helped a good friend get a job (and his foot in the door) at 20thCenturyFox.
That friend went on to become a big-time Hollywood studio executive and producer.


  • And that’s enough for now. We’ll continue this another time.

5:30pm: The dogs went outside. The dogs got fed. The dogs went outside.
Now they are in the bedroom chillin’.
6:15pm: We drank some juice and time passed. Today went by pretty quick.
We watched the news and surfed the interweb. We played with the dogs.
We ate a toasted bagel with cream cheese and a few pita chips.

7:45pm: And then we picked up dinner, brought it home, and ate!
On The Menu: Cuban food! Roasted garlic chicken with onions, white rice,
black beans, and fried plantains. With an iced coffee to drink. Full again.

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.

2:00pm: We made another cup of espresso and ate two mini-bran muffins.
The mobile groomer is here today to wash, cut, and do a teeth cleaning for the dogs.
3:00pm: The gardener is here now, the dogs are back in the Home Office.
They are clean, beautiful and happy. We calmed them down, took them outside,
and now they are in the bedroom while the gardener does his thing.

COVID-19 is the leading cause of death in the United States.
568000+ Reported Deaths in the United States from COVID-19
as of today.
61000+ Reported Deaths in California from COVID-19 as of today
THE FOURTH SURGE IS HERE! SPRING BREAK! MARCH MADNESS! EASTER!
“Health officials in the state of California are tracking at least SIX COVID-19 variants”

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!

Thursday, April 22, 2021 – HAPPY EARTH DAY!
This year’s theme is “Restoration of the Environment”
LOVE YOUR MOTHER EARTH! RESTORE OUR EARTH!
Take action today to help end plastic pollution, fight climate change
and Global Warming, and protect our land, air, water, and wildlife!

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….

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.

You can visit the Jelly Belly factory in Fairfield, California

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.

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.”

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,

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.

COVID-19 Worldwide Update:
3,082,000+ Reported Deaths Worldwide!
571000+ Reported Deaths in the United States.
FIVE HUNDRED SEVENTY-ONE THOUSAND US CITIZENS HAVE DIED!
Canada is on total lockdown. India is in total crisis.
Japan has an emergency situation in Tokyo.

The Johnson&Johnson vaccine is back in service. It’s safe (with a warning about blood clots).
Safe for people over the age of 18. Women under the age of 50 are subject to side effects.
GET VACCINATED! Moderna, Pfizer or Johnson&Johnson? Just do it.
The benefits outweigh the risk. Believe the SCIENCE!

Anyone seen an Indonesian submarine?
It sunk off Bali. And now they’ve run out of air. RIP

And Carl LaBove died today. Rest in Peace.
May the Four Winds blow him safely home. Partytime with Sam again.

“Hey Aaron, have you ever drunk absinthe?
Like from the nineteen hundreds?…Picasso drank it.”
Saturday, January 23, 2021
We woke up around 1:30am
On The Menu: 2 toasted sourdough English muffins with peanut butter and raspberry jam, celery, strawberries and red cherries at 3:30am. And a double espresso to drink.

WHERE’S BERNIE? (Don’t try to find him, he’s barely visible)
142247612_1321559611534145_322911937611729012_n

6:00am: We tried to watch Wonder Woman ’84…. we heard it was bad.
WE HAD NO IDEA HOW AWFUL IT REALLY WAS! IT WAS BAD. IT WAS SO BAD.
They probably could have fed a small country for the amount of money they wasted on it.
So we tried, and then we turned it off at about the 55 minute mark…
Yeah, Chris Pine trying on 80s fashion, boring-cliché-pandering to the female audience.
Gal Gadot is beautiful. NO DOUBT. But the acting was bad. Kristen Wigg was weird casting. Bad guy was ridiculous (much better in “Equalizer 2”). Who directed this? Oh, Patty Jenkins. And she’ll be back for Part 3 next year. KA-CHING. Make a butt load of sequel money. The new DC Comic Book movie characters and films just suck.

On this day in 1556, THE BIG ONE IN CHINA! The Shaanxi Earthquake (aka the Huaxian or Jiajing Great Earthquake), the deadliest earthquake and third deadliest natural disaster in recorded history, totally destroyed the Shaanxi province (and a 520 mile radius area) in China. 830000 people may have died in the disaster according to Imperial Chinese records..

It’s beginning to look a lot like Chinese New Year!
From Pompsie’s Las Vegas Livestream last night on YouTube.
The Chinese (lunar) New Year – YEAR OF THE OX begins on Friday, February 12, 2021

7:15am: Watching a replay of Pompsie’s Las Vegas Livestream from last night.
He’s walking around the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace right now….
The dogs got fed, and they went outside. It’s Raining today!
We expect a lot of rain later this week.

Screen Shot 2021-01-23 at 13.22.08

12:45pm: And we fell asleep and woke up around 10:30am.
CHANGE IS A GOOD THING. breathe. relax. let it go. everything is fine….
And we fixed a mechanical problem. And we JUST had our first cup of espresso.
Drink Coffee. Drink Water.

3:20pm: We took the dogs outside again, We made another cup of espresso.
Now we’re all chillin’ in the Home Office and the dogs are napping again.

There were back-to-back pursuits in Los Angeles tonight! And there was a third one that didn’t get covered because it was a short one and it happened at the same time as the second. That one was nuts, Dude hit 120mph on the freeway and finally rolled the car on surface streets at the end. The first guy eventually stopped after hitting a spike strip and surrendered, but the passenger in the car had to be removed by the CHP. The third guy pulled over and surrendered too (or so we heard on “Smoke and Scan”‘s scanner.

1:15am: We just had a cup of espresso. And now it’s Sunday morning.

“suddenly someone’ll say, like, plate, or shrimp,
or plate o’ shrimp out of the blue, no explanation”

8:20am: Good morning again.
We took the dogs out and they got fed and then we went outside again.
We got the newspapers and drank a cup of espresso.
Drink Coffee. Drink Water.
Our back is hurting this morning.
It’s hard to bend over or move around without pain. PAIN HURTS.

141736712_10224499050961787_8773906582145161685_n

HE’S GONE!
Someone said it was wonderful to wake up in the morning and there is NO TRUMP!
No Trump tweets. No Trump lies. No Trump hate. No Trump face. No Trump voice.
No Trump dog-whistles, No Trump family. NO TRUMP BULLSH*T!
NO Donny Junior. NO Ivanka. NO Melania. NO Eric. NO TRUMP!
THE NATION IS BREATHING A COLLECTIVE SIGH OF RELIEF.
We were going to say, “No Trump Scandal”, but there’s a new one uncovered everyday.
NO CORONAVIRUS PLAN. NO VACCINE RESERVE. TOTAL FAILURE!
ATTEMPTED COUP AT THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE!
PARDONS for TRUMP’S CRIMINAL CRONIES and ANYONE WHO COULD PAY FOR ONE!
IVANKA and JARED WOULDN’T LET THE SECRET SERICE USE ANY OF THEIR SIX BATHROOMS, So THE GOVERNMENT RENTED A $3000/MONTH APARTMENT.
Oh yeah,
TRUMP TRIED TO OVERTHROW THE GOVERNMENT OF THE UNITED STATES!
TRUMP TRIED TO MURDER VP MIKE PENCE AND MEMBERS OF CONGRESS!
TRUMP INCITED AN INSURRECTION! TRUMPERS ATTACKED THE US CAPITOL!
US CAPITOL POLICE OFFICER SICKNICK WAS MURDERED BY THE TRUMPERS
TRUMP INCITED THE TRUMPERS THAT MURDERED OFFICER SICKNICK!
4 OTHER PEOPLE DIED, AND ANOTHER OFFICER COMMITTED SUICIDE!
SIX PEOPLE DIED! TRUMP IS RESPONSIBLE! FELONY MURDER! Manslaughter?

Remove Kevin McCarthy. Remove Lindsey Graham.
Remove Mo Brooks. Remove Ron Johnson. Remove Andy Biggs,
Remove Louis Gohmert. Remove Jim Jordan. Remove Paul Gosar.
Remove Matt Gaetz. Remove Lauren Boebert.
Remove Marjorie Taylor Greene. Remove Madison Cawthorn.

EVERY REPUBLICAN IN OFFICE IS AN ACCESSORY
TO CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY AND GENOCIDE AT THIS POINT!
ANYONE WHO SAYS JOE BIDEN AND KAMALA HARRIS DIDN’T WIN
IS GUILTY OF TREASON AND SEDITION!

DON’T BELIEVE THE GOP TRAITOR’S LIES!
ALL GOP TRAITORS THAT STILL SUPPORT TRUMP AND THE BIG LIE
MUST BE EXPELLED, ARRESTED AND PROSECUTED!

Federal judge Beryl Howell has BLOCKED the release of “zip tie guy” Eric Gavelek Munchel pending a review of a Tennessee judge’s ruling. Munchel attacked the US Capitol with his mother and was photographed in the House Chamber. Judge Howell also blocked the release of another insurrectionist: white supremacist Army Reservist Timothy Louis Hale-Cusanelli.
WHY ARE THEY RELEASING THE WHITE TRUMP TRAITORS?
WHY HAVEN’T THOUSANDS WHO ATTACKED THE CAPITOL BEEN ARRESTED?
WHY ARE THE GOP TRAITOR STILL IN CONGRESS? WHY AREN’T THEY IN PRISON?

BLACK LIVES MATTER!
STOP POLICE BRUTALITY! STOP SYSTEMIC RACISM!

STOP KILLING UNARMED BLACK AND BROWN PEOPLE!
We need PEACE OFFICERS not police.

3:20pm: Tampa Bay Buccaneers defeat the Green Bay Packers (as predicted)
Cheater Tom Brady is going to the Superbowl again. FUCK.
THERE ARE NO CONSEQUENCES FOR TOM BRADY’S CHEATING IN THE NFL.
And it’s albout the dollar$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$.

We got dressed and went out during the 3rd Quarter.
Someone was giving away “art and office supplies, most new” on Craigslist.
And since it was only a few minutes from the Home Office we emailed her last night.
She texted us today, so we drove over and picked up a couple boxes of stuff.
GOOD SCORE!
142691359_4423265381033327_1427165405392169021_o

Then we drove home, unloaded the boxes, and cleaned up.
We put our sweats back on and watched the end of the game.
Sorry, not sorry Green Bay Cheeseheads.
We hate Tom Brady, and we hate the Packers and their fans too.

And it’s time for the Bills and Chiefs.
Chiefs will win, but we’re rooting for the Bills to beat them.
And we would not put money on it… so Chiefs to win by 6 points is our pick (Sun 3:30pm)
The NATIONAL ANTHEM on electric guitar by Brandon from the “School of Rock” cast
and fireworks and a missing man flyover as he shreds the Star Spangled Banner.
The Chiefs stayed in the locker room until after the National Anthem
(as they have all season) to avoid any controversy over “taking a knee”.

We went back to bed after our morning duties were completed. We woke up.
We drank a cup of espresso and ate a toasted everything bagel with cream cheese.
We ate two slices of cold pizzas later, so we could take some medication for our back.
And we never medicate unless it’s pretty serious pain. So we took an anti-inflammatory and a muscle relaxer and we are feeling much better, with only moderate pain, this afternoon.

It was a beautiful day today. Cool and clear after the rain had passed.
Everything feels clean.

5:40pm: Halftime. The Bills got off to a 9-0 lead in the 1st Quarter,
and now the Chiefs are winning 21-12 in the 3rd Quarter.
We took the dogs outside and then fed the dogs supper
and took the dogs outside again. They are fat and happy.
And we are not happy because the pain inner low back has returned.
It was really hard to bend over while feeding the dogs.
And we made and drank another espresso. Back in the Home Office watching the game.
And Kansas City the just kicked a field goal, so the score is now 24-12 Chiefs lead.
And the Chiefs just made a 71yard pass completion….follows up with a forward underhand TOUCHDOWN pass! Chiefs now lead 31-15 (end of 3rd Quarter)
And TOUCHDOWN CHIEFS! They now lead 38-15 in the 4th Quarter.
The Bills go down field for a Touchdown, and “try for two” after the point. And NOPE.
Bills 21 Chiefs 38 – AND THE BILLS RECOVER THEIR ONSIDE KICK!
There’s a big SACK on Buffalo
AND WE HAVE A PENALTY REVIEW AFTER UNSPORTSMANLIKE CONDUCT AND PERSONAL FOULS! OFFSETTING PENALTIES!
4th down and 28. And a 51 YARD FIELD GOAL. 38-24.
Bill’s On-side Kick attempt fails this time – Chiefs have the ball with time running out.
Buffalo’s defense draws a personal foul with three minutes to go.
GAME OVER. CHIEFS WIN. Okay then.

8:45pm: We just watched “The Circus” on HBO, “President Biden” episode
and now we are watching it again.

On The Menu: Cold leftover pizza all day long.
We just ate another slice of pizza and drank another espresso.

12:01am Monday: And we made it to Monday!
We are still here in the home office drinking espresso….and eating cold pizza.
And the dogs are chillin’. Asleep on the bed and under the desk,
We’ve been outside with them a few times since they had their supper.

“Everything is part of one infinite being.
This eternal, single existence is The Living Universe.”
American Rabbi Herbert S. Goldstein asked Albert Einstein if he believed in G-d
in a telegram on April 25, 1929 . Do you believe in G-d?
Einstein replied: “I believe in Spinoza’s God, who reveals Himself in the lawful harmony of the world, not in a God who concerns himself with the fate and the doings of mankind”

albert_einstein_quote
Einstein believed in Pantheism,
a theological doctrine based on the work of 17th-century Dutch philosopher Baruch Spinoza.
“Everything is part of one infinite being. This eternal single existence is “The Living Universe”
And here is some of Spinoza’s wisdom: (ripped from the interweb)
G-d would have said:
-Stop praying and punching yourself in the chest! What I want you to do is go out into the world and enjoy your life. I want you to enjoy, sing, have fun and enjoy everything I’ve made for you.
-Stop going to those dark, cold (churches and) temples that you built yourself and say they are my house! My house is in the mountains, in the woods, rivers, lakes, beaches. That’s where I live and there I express my love for you.
-Stop blaming me for your miserable life; I never told you there was anything wrong with you or that you were a sinner, or that your sexuality was a bad thing! Sex is a gift I have given you and with which you can express your love, your ecstasy, your joy. So don’t blame me for everything THEY MADE YOU BELIEVE.
-Stop reading alleged sacred scriptures that have nothing to do with me. If you can’t read me in a sunrise, in a landscape, in the look of your friends, in your son’s eyes… you will find me in no book! Trust me and stop asking me. Would you tell me how to do my job?
-Stop being so scared of me. I do not judge you or criticize you, nor get angry, or seek to punish you. I am pure love.
-Stop asking for forgiveness, there’s nothing to forgive. If I made you… I filled you with passions, limitations, pleasures, feelings, needs, inconsistencies… free will. How can I blame you if you respond to something I put in you? How can I punish you for being the way you are, if I’m the one who made you? Do you think I could create a place to burn all my children who behave badly for the rest of eternity? What kind of God would do that?
Forget any kind of commandments, any kind of laws; those are wiles to manipulate you, to control you, that only create guilt in you.
-Respect your peers and don’t do what you don’t want for yourself. All I ask is that you pay attention in your life, that your consciousness is your guide.
My beloved, this life is not a test, not a step, not a rehearsal, nor a prelude to paradise. This life is the only thing that exists here and now, and it is all you need. I have set you absolutely free, no prizes or punishments, no sins or virtues… no one carries a marker, no one keeps a record.
-You are absolutely free to create in your life heaven or hell. I could tell you if there’s anything after this life, but I won’t… but I can give you a tip. Live as if there is nothing after… as if this is your only chance to enjoy, to love, to exist. So, if there’s nothing, then you will have enjoyed the opportunity I gave you. And if there is, rest assured that I won’t ask if you behaved right or wrong, I’ll ask. Did you like it? Did you have fun? What did you enjoy the most? What did you learn?…
-Stop believing in me; believing is assuming, guessing, imagining. I don’t want you to believe in me… I want you to feel me in you when you kiss your beloved, when you tuck in your little girl, when you caress your dog, when you bathe in the sea.
-Stop praising me, what kind of egomaniac G-d do you think I am? I’m bored being praised, I’m tired of being thanked. Feeling grateful? Prove it by taking care of yourself, your health, your relationships, the world. Express your joy!… that’s the way to praise me.
-Stop complicating things and repeating as a parakeet what you’ve been taught about me. The only thing for sure is that you are here, that you are alive, and that this world is full of wonders. What do you need more miracles for? Why so many explanations?
Look for me outside. You won’t find me.
Find me inside. There I am beating within you.
– Spinoza (the Dude ABIDES)
