LEO has the most fundamental relationship with FIRE.
When confronted with challenges,
fire’s influence becomes obvious.
While others quit in the face of adversity,

LEOs are inspired by burning passion and enthusiasm.
Embrace fire’s positive qualities,
and always work towards achieving the goal.
Be aware of fire’s negative influence,
it can stir impatience and impulsivity.

The fire person has leadership qualities, dynamic passion,
and is decisive, self-confident, positive, and assertive.
The direction associated with Fire is South, and the season is summer,
which makes it the fixed element for the animal signs Snake and Horse

The Snake:
Snake_(Chinese_characters)

Fire (Chinese: ; pinyin: huǒ) is the prosper of the matter,
or the matter’s prosperity stage, the second of the Wu Xing, the Five Phases.

In the regenerative cycle of Wu Xing, wood engenders Fire
as fire is generated by rubbing together two pieces of wood
and it must be fueled by burning wood;
Fire begets earth as fire reduces everything to ashes,
which become a part of the earth again.
In the conquest cycle, water overcomes Fire
as nothing will put out a fire as quickly as water. 
Fire overcomes metal as it can only be melted and forged by flame or heat.

Fire is yang in character. Its motion is upward and its energy is convective.

Fire is associated with the positive emotion of joy
and the negative emotion of hate.

Fire is associated with Summer, the South, the planet Mars and The Sun ,
the color red (associated with extreme luck), hot weather, daylight,
and the Vermilion Bird (Zhu Que)

Organs associated with the Fire element are the Heart (yin)
and small intestine (yang), the tongue and the body’s pulse.

“There’s a fire in my belly…. but it might just be supper.”

Fire attributes are considered to be dynamism, strength, and persistence;
however, it is also connected to restlessness.
The fire element provides warmth, enthusiasm, and creativity;
however, an excess of it can bring aggression, impatience, and impulsive behavior.
In the same way, fire provides heat and warmth; however, an excess can also burn.

“Burn like Fire! Burn like Fire in Cairo!”

The Fire Knife Dance began in the ancient Polynesian demonstration of ailao,
a ceremonial performance of the Samoan warrior’s display of strength with a war club.
Fire dancing aka “poi spinning” began in the Maori’s war tradition in New Zealand.

It’s a Hawaiian Luau Tradition!

Also called fire spinning, fire performance, fire twirling or fire manipulation.
Fire performance typically involves equipment or other objects
made with one or more wicks which are designed to sustain
a large enough flame to create a visual effect.

August 1st is Jerry Garcia’s birthday.
August 9th is the anniversary of his death in 1995.
The nine days from August 1st to 9th, are known as “The Days Between”
named for the Grateful Dead’s song on “So Many Roads” released in 1999.
CELEBRATE THE LIFE AND MUSIC OF JERRY GARCIA!

Jerry Garcia’s Hand – UC Santa Cruz McHenry Library – Grateful Dead Special Collection

First LIVE performance of “The Days Between”:
February 22, 1993, at the Oakland Alameda Coliseum.

There were days
And there were days
And there were days between
Summer flies and August dies
And the world grows dark and mean
Comes the shimmer of the moon
On black infested trees
The singing man is at his song
The holy on their knees
The reckless are out wrecking
The timid plead their pleas
And no one knows much more of this
Than anyone can see, anyone can see
– “The Days Between” by Jerry Garcia and Robert Hunter
 


Monday, August 2, 2021 – It’s the 214th day of the year!

mktplmonpromo

NOTE: The TSA reported more than 2.2Million travelers at US Airports
on Sunday, the highest number since the start of the CoronaVirus pandemic.

1:30am: We just finished recapping Sunday night and (we just published)
our previous Blog Post “CV! Part 188 – Happy Jerry Day!”
And we just outlined and set up this Blog Post too.
Time for breakfast for dinner at 2:00am again.

4:20am: We still haven’t eaten dinner…. now it’s breakfast.
We’ve been working on a couple new Blog Posts and we got caught up.
Now we are going to the kitchen and we are going to do some cooking.

There were days
There were days
And there were days besides
When phantom ships with phantom sails
Set to sea on phantom tides
Comes the lightning of the sun
On bright unfocused eyes
The blue of yet another day
A springtime wet with sighs
A lonesome candle lingers
In the land of lullabies
Where headless horsemen vanish
With wild and lonely cries, lonely cries
 

8:15am: We finally made and ate some food around 6:00am.
We hope you’ll read the future Blog Posts we were working on last night.
We drank another iced espresso. We took the dogs outside.
We fed the dogs. We took the dogs outside.
And we got the newspapers. We still haven’t slept.

On The Menu: 3 eggs over medium, bacon, avocado,
watermelon, dill pickle, and a quesadilla with salsa verde
229033140_4994993567193836_6470418117063646781_n

9:05am: MONDAY MORNING PURSUIT! We were watching for 4 minutes…..
9:09am: The Suspect stopped and surrendered, and now the Suspect is in custody.

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ. Crashed Hard.

2:05pm: We waited for the housekeeper to arrive, we got the mail,
then we went to bed with the dogs and we slept until about 2:00pm.
We took the dogs outside after the housekeeper finished.

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.

7:15pm: We slept some more. Another afternoon nap. It was nice.
We woke up. We drank an iced espresso. The dogs went outside and got fed.
225013274_10158596596193369_3607434370607849290_n
USA! USA! USA! GO TEAM USA! TOKYO 2020 OLYMPICS!
And we were watching the Tokyo 2020 2021 Olympics again.
NBCs coverage totally SUCKS. (and they have a tie-in with Snapchat? WTF?)
Have no idea what event we are watching or who the players are.
NBC thinks that we care about athletes who we don’t even know…..
IT’S AN INTERNATIONAL SPORTS COMPETITION (not just about USA athletes).
AND SO MANY FUCKING COMMERCIALS! It’s just about the advertising now.
And currently they are running the Women’s 400m Hurdles in a MONSOON!
It’s pouring rain on the outdoor Track and Field events.
And we are not entertained, so it’s time to change the channel.

And there was one West German police officer killed
in the control tower during a gunfight with the terrorists:
  • Anton Fliegerbauer

9:25pm: We took the dog outside. We played with the dog.
We watched some public television (not the sh*tty Olympic coverage)
and we worked on this and our other new Blog Posts.
We just put the dog in the bedroom and now it’s time for our dinner.

NOTE: We did not eat our dinner on Monday.

It’s National Watermelon Day!

7:10am: Tuesday morning. We just woke up.
Watched the end of an early morning pursuit. 
They stopped and surrendered. Two suspects in custody.
231905249_4997995413560318_3027405380708839971_n
The dogs went outside. The dogs got fed.
We made and drank our first cup of espresso of the day.
Drink Coffee. Drink Water. Eat Watermelon.

98329551_177077100425073_3068049784125259776_n copy

8:10am: The CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC is all over the news this morning.
Are you Fully Vaccinated*? GET VACCINATED NOW if you haven’t yet!

*FULLY VACCINATED means TWO WEEKS after the second dose! 
You are not Fully Vaccinated after the first dose!
You are not Fully Vaccinated until TWO WEEKS AFTER THE SECOND DOSE!

10:35am: We made another cup of espresso. We got the mail.

12:00Noon: We took the dogs outside. It’s HOT and it’s going to get HOTTER.
We are chillin’ with the dogs in the Home Office and thinking about food.
And we watched too much “news” this morning.

12:40pm: And we made another iced espresso.
Time for a some Olympics. And also time for some lunch.

1:30pm: Olympic Basketball on NBC!
Spain (España) v. United States of America (USA) 
USA wins 95-81….. the game was over 14 HOURS AGO. “Spoiler Alert”
Way to go NBC. Watching the 2nd Quarter now. But GAME OVER.

A short Mini-Rant because this has been bugging us all morning:
KTLA channel 5 in Los Angeles was also warning “Spoiler Alert” this morning.
Mentally challenged US gymnast Simone Biles won the bronze medal for
the individual balance beam event after withdrawing from other events.
BUT if the news anchor says “Spoiler Alert”
and the inset photo is Simone Biles
holding a medal, and the caption reads: 
SIMONE BILES WINS BRONZE!
It is pretty much a “SPOILER” instead of a “Spoiler Alert”, right? 

231041779_4999786573381202_6118702508826977007_n

8:05pm: Recapping Tuesday afternoon. It was fuckin’ HOT.
We got dressed and went out and got lunch “to go” at The Stand.
We didn’t eat dinner last night, and we only ate a dill pickle this morning.
We brought the food home and ate. Then we fell asleep.
On The Menu: ABC Burger (avocado, bacon, cheese), fries, and a chocolate shake.
233106338_4999786393381220_4468523158237042356_n
Read our previous Blog Post “Dinner at The Stand in Encino” from 2016!
We paid $24 and change for this lunch and it was okay, not great.
We should have gotten a burger at The Habit Grill a few blocks away,
it would have cost half of what we paid, and been better.
Also, the interior of the restaurant is not COVID-19 safe. 
TOO MANY PEOPLE TOO CLOSE TOGETHER AT THE REGISTER AREA!
We were very uncomfortable while we were inside with so many people.

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.

There was a pursuit yesterday, the guy got sideways and then kept going! Then he pulled over and surrendered. And there was a pursuit this morning, they stopped and surrendered. And then there was just another pursuit. She tried to escape the helicopter in a total POS. She ran her beater car/home into the ground and had to stop and surrender too, and she left her pitbull in the car for the CHP and Animal Control to deal with.

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.

Tuesday night now. We slept for awhile. We woke up.
The dogs went outside. The dogs got fed.
We got a coke (Coca-Cola in a can) with ice and drank it.
We took the dog outside again. 

10:00pm: We just found out the little boy, the “Love Sponge” passed.
We are so very sad. May his memory be a blessing.
And may the Four Winds blow him safely home.
21034489_1935595023133721_6117460593163701835_n

We’re just done for the night. 

There were days
There were days
And there were days I know
When all we ever wanted
Was to learn and love and grow
When we grew into our shoes
And told them where to go
Walked halfway ’round the world
On promise of the glow
Stood upon a mountain top
Walked barefoot in the snow
Gave the best we had to give
How much we’ll never know, never know

COAST GUARD DAY! It’s the United States Coast Guard’s Birthday!
Commemorate the founding of the United States Coast Guard today!
Created as the Revenue Cutter Service on August 4, 1790,
with ten ships to combat smuggling and enforce tariff laws,
by Secretary of the Treasury Alexander Hamilton.

champagne-butler-2

2:45am: THERE IS A MOUSE IN THE HOUSE…. WTF?
It must have come in through the hole in the screen door.
We heard a rustling noise from the desk behind us.
We turned around, and there was a mouse on top of the printer!
And it jumped behind the printer and disappeared,
so we cleared the desk behind us of stuff and moved the printer,
NO MOUSE of course.
So it may have escaped the way it got in (good),
or it may still be in the Home Office hiding (not good),
the dog didn’t even wake up, and so we put him in the cage
while we moved everything from on top and under the desk.
Needed dusting anyway, right? Time to reorganize the back desk?
BONUS: We also found some important papers we were looking for.
BONUS: We got access to another power strip + more outlets.
And we think we might move the printer to another place….
Might even create a real “studio background” for Zoom/Youtube.

poppingchampagne

5:40am: The mouse is still in the Home Office….
We almost got it by the dog’s water bowl but didn’t take the shot.
(we currently have a Louisville Slugger at the ready)
So, it might have found it’s way into the closet (not good).
We have used the time this morning, since we aren’t going to sleep,
to start the ‘Spring Cleaning’ that never happened during the Pandemic…
and so now we are working at “getting sh*t organized.”

National Raisin Bran Day 

7:20am: We got the newspapers.
We made and drank a cup of espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.
8:20am: The NBC Tokyo Olympics coverage continues to suck.
We had another shot at the mouse, but we didn’t want to kill it.
We ate a slice of banana bread.

Cheers! It’s National White Wine Day! 
Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc. Pinot Grigio, Riesling, Chablis,
Chenin Blanc, Sancerre, Albarino, Cava, Champagne, and many more!

Sunday Champagne Brunch – Mimosas all around!

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZZ.

12:10pm: We fell asleep and slept. 
We just woke up and the Home Office is a mess from this morning.
Chore Boy has a lot of stuff to do now. And it’s HOT out today.

1:40pm: We made an iced espresso. We vacuumed one time.
Watching Olympics Women’s Skateboarding while we clean.
We vacuumed two times. 

3:50pm: The Home Office cleaning crusade continues.
4:30pm: Why do we have so many toys? And so many mugs?
4:45pm: FUCK. 
5:15pm: FUCK. Time is just flying by today. Another ten minutes gone.

6:40pm: The dogs got fed. The dogs went outside. We ate some food.
On The Menu: Fried chicken breast and corn on the cob.
And a KrispyKreme glazed donut for dessert.

Today was National Single Working Woman’s Day“YOU GO GIRL!”

champagne_uncorking_photographed_with_a_high_speed_air-gap_flash

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZZ. We fell asleep with the dog.

8:50pm: We woke up and took the dog outside.
No sign of the mouse yet today.
We hoped it escaped through the hole in the screen door…..

9:45pm: NOPE. The mouse didn’t escape today.
WARNING: ANIMAL LOVERS SHOULD SKIP THIS NEXT PARAGRAPH.

We just caught it. We went to the kitchen and made an iced espresso. 
When we got back to the Home Office, we heard it moving around inside an open top box, and then we saw it, and we tried to cover the box, trap the mouse, to take it outside. But then it jumped out of the box, and then it ran behind the headboard of the bed. We trapped it between the wall and the headboard, and then it quickly succumbed to “blunt force trauma”. RIP. We bagged it and trashed it, and the mouse problem is now history.

Deadmaus-1

There were days
And there were days
And there were days between
Polished like a golden bowl
The finest ever seen
Hearts of Summer held in trust
Still tender, young and green
Left on shelves collecting dust
Not knowing what they mean
Valentines of flesh and blood
As soft as velveteen
Hoping love would not forsake
The days that lie between, lie between

It’s National Underwear Day!
(so, please don’t go “commando”)
Remembering Marilyn Monroe today.

Marilyn-Monroe-Full-Suite

1:11am: Well we cleaned the Home Office a lot today.
And we took care of the mouse problem.
And Chore Boy will be back later to do more stuff.  
AND ALSO, WE HAVE TOO MUCH STUFF.
So, we got stuff here back to normal for now.
And we have the Olympics on with the sound off.
NBC REPEAT (sh*tty) COVERAGE of earlier today:
“The thrill of victory, the agony of defeat” 
Listening to music, watching YouTube vids, 
working on this Blog Post tonight.

4:20am: We just made and drank an iced espresso. Yes, we’re still awake.
Watching the Olympics Track and Field. Shotput and Triple Jump.
We watched running, and hurdles yesterday.
But we still haven’t seen a full event, because the NBC coverage is CHAOS.
Don’t know any of the athletes, but they are incredible physical specimens!
(We’ve seen pieces of diving, gymnastics, golf, skateboarding, soccer,
volleyball, basketball, and now track and field – but we missed so many events!) 
225013274_10158596596193369_3607434370607849290_n

And “mental health” is the media hot word this week.
Thank you Simone Biles.
SEE OUR PREVIOUS BLOG POSTS.

8:25am: And hello morning. We didn’t sleep. Don’t think we slept.
The dogs were barking. The dogs went outside. The dogs got fed.
We got the newspapers.
We drank an iced espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.

Okay, before the dogs woke up, we made breakfast.
We had a bacon cheeseburger and fries left in the fridge.
On The Menu: We made a bacon cheeseburger and fries BURRITO
We took the 2 patties, bacon and cheese and chopped them.
Normally we get lettuce, but it look like they screwed up the order again.
No lettuce. We put the stuff on two flour tortillas, added fries, 
added cheese, and heated it up in the toaster oven.
Then we added red onion and salsa verde and ate it up. Pretty good.

Giant-Smiley-Face15

So now we’re chilling’ with the dogs in the Home Office.
And thinking about a nap….

11:15am: No nap yet.

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZZ.

2:50pm: And we’re awake again.
We fell asleep and took that nap.
Why don’t they play the washboard anymore?
Just a random question.
We took the dog outside. It’s HOT out again.
3:15pm: We made an iced espresso.

4:45pm: We made an iced mocha/coffee shake with vanilla ice cream.
And we are hoping for a high speed pursuit right now.
Our Top Story Tonight! CORONAVIRUS! DELTA VARIANT!
“COVID SURGE!”  Vaccine Requirements and Mandates!
xxxxxxxxxxxxxx NOPE. Not going to go there now.

5:45pm: We took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs supper.
We took the dogs outside. FUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCK!

NOTE: We don’t usually censor our Blog Posts.
But the following is being removed because we want to.

A quick (public) personal rant xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX Okay, now we’re done. 

Another short rant:
FFS. It’s COVID-19. Delta Variant. (so sick of this now)
Remove restrictions, relax requirements, and pretend the pandemic is over….
AND THEN WONDER WHY THE DISEASE IS SPREADING. Hmmmm?
Open indoor dining, gyms, public spaces.
Have concerts, parties, and sporting events.
Send children back-to-school.
AND THEN WONDER WHY THE DISEASE IS SPREADING. Hmmmm?
Tell people it’s okay to take off masks, and that it’s okay to gather again.
Half the population is still not FULLY VACCINATED! WTF?
HAVE YOU SEEN THE PICTURES FROM LAS VEGAS?
Unmasked, unvaccinated tourists by the thousands in public!
And then everyone goes home with the virus to wherever on Sunday.
AND THEN WONDER WHY THE DISEASE IS SPREADING. Hmmmm?

Now that the Delta Variant is killing the unvaccinated, maybe that will change.

“Ask and you shall receive.”
Pursuit started in Glendale ended in Elysian Park. FIVE ARMED SUSPECTS IN CUSTODY after crashing their Compton Clown Car. They got airborne after hitting the curb and losing control. They had a head-on with a telephone pole. Flipped a couple more times and then they all crawled out with their hands up into the waiting arms of the Glendale PD with AR-15s and Attack Dogs.

And they are lucky that they are just under arrest.
(Update: Tonight the entire neighborhood is without power. Total Blackout!)

10:55pm: WE GOT ANOTHER PURSUIT! And then they lost him in DTLA….
He drove into the 3rd street tunnel and didn’t come out. WTF?
We took the dog outside. And it’s almost Friday.

There were days
And there were days
And there were days between
Polished like a golden bowl
The finest ever seen
Hearts of Summer held in trust
Still tender, young and green
Left on shelves collecting dust
Not knowing what they mean
Valentines of flesh and blood
Still tender, young and green
Hoping love would not forsake
The days that lie between lie between

“People live one generation, your life lives for generations after,
your name lives on forever.”
– Yakuza tattoo

3:05am: So, we are still awake. We have been watching YouTube vids.
Maybe watching some TV too. It’s Friday morning now.
We are tired, so might be time for bed.

8:20am: We finally went to bed around 5:00am. And we didn’t sleep well.
We just woke up and we’re going back to bed soon….
The dogs got fed. The dogs went outside. We made an iced espresso.
Drink Coffee. Drink Water.

ETuxtaXXYAAVrNG1
We watched the end of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics Opening Ceremony.
OMG IT WAS SO BORING. No audience in the stadium. SO BORING!
Jazzy piano instrumental. 50 Pictographs and an unsteady-cam….
Kabuki theatre performance….REALLY? And there were fireworks too.
GAVE US A HEADACHE IMMEDIATELY. Shaky camera and jump cut moves.
NBC just sucked this morning. And the NBC hosts suck too.

NOTE: If there is a Mike Lindell MyPillow commercial on during a show….
we will CHANGE THE CHANNEL. We are done watching your program.

10:05am: WE MUST MOTIVATE! We tried to go back to bed, but no luck.
We’ve spent the last 2 hours doing nothing. And we’re watching “Top Chef”.
And it’s making us hungry for breakfast.

11:30am: We drank another iced espresso.
We reheated and ate three slices of leftover pizza for brunch.
We drank a glass of cran-raspberry-orange juice.
217540168_4965316633494863_667563989275081013_n

12:40pm: We need to run errands. MUST GET DRESSED.

5:10pm: Back in our “lounge wear” and barefoot at home.
It was FUCKING HOT TODAY. Really HOT out.
Recapping the afternoon. We got dressed and went out at 2:00pm.
We ran errands. We went to the bank. We skipped the Post Office.
We came home. We took the dogs outside.

What’s cooking?
218640303_4965605750132618_1756670032467429122_n

We ventured into GW today and found a 50th anniversary copy
in almost new and unused condition for $2.25. Score.
(it was originally $2.99, but it was 25% off this week)
Paid cash. Left them the penny. No receipt required.

6:00pm: We almost fell asleep. FUCK.
The dogs got fed. The dogs barked. The dogs went outside.
We just ordered Thai food delivery for dinner…. estimated 45 mins.

The food was delivered on time. GOOD SHABBOS!

On The Menu: Thai food! BBQ chicken combo w/pad Thai noodles & vegetables,
BBQ rib combo w/fried rice & salad, and chicken satay w/peanut sauce
NOTE: We’re good customers, so they sent us some FREE egg rolls too.

Recapping Friday night. We ate and fell asleep. We woke up around 10:00pm and spent the night watching TV and surfing the interweb. We also worked on Blog Posts and played with the dogs. We fell asleep sometime before dawn.

8:00am: One more Saturday. We woke up before 6:00am.
We just published last week’s Blog Post (our previous Blog Post)
We drank a cup of espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.
We ate the leftover salad from last night with a little ranch dressing.

And then we just finished binge-watching the “Top Chef” finale
(Portland season 18) and the “Last Chance Kitchen” final episodes.
Such a great show and concept. And after 18 seasons it’s still great.
The chefs (the competitors, hosts, and the guest judges) are CHARACTERS!
The story line, editing, emotion, and the format make for exciting episodes.
SUCH AMAZING FOOD! Creative cooking ideas! Always makes us hungry.
And the winner is…. no, we won’t spoil it.

9:00am: We drank another cup of espresso.

Shit in the front hall
One more unsolved mystery
Which dog did the deed?

11:30am: FUCK. FUCK. FUCK. Just a little more drama.
With pet ownership comes great responsibility.
AND THAT’S ALL WE ARE GOING TO SAY ABOUT THAT TODAY.

Dog Days of Summer in Los Angeles

We were invited to dinner tonight. At a public restaurant in a busy part of town.
AND WE SAID “NO THANK YOU” and explained why…. CORONAVIRUS.
COVID-19 Delta Variant. “Breakthrough” virus. Public spaces. Public Restaurant.
Also said they shouldn’t be going out in public, and their kids shouldn’t too.
THERE IS ALREADY A PUBLIC HEALTH EMERGENCY. Not going to go there.
We ran errands yesterday and encountered people not wearing masks,
even though the “mask mandate” is back in effect for Los Angeles. SCARY.
AND SO MANY UNVACCINATED PEOPLE. That anxiety about strangers is back.

STAYTHEFUCKHOME! STAYTHEFUCKHOME! STAYTHEFUCKHOME!

After 16 months in isolation, we really want to get out!
We want to travel. We want to party. We want to hang out with out friends.
We are fully vaccinated. And we almost felt safe for a couple weeks….
AND NOW WE DON’T FEEL SAFE
and WE DON’T TRUST THE GOVERNMENT.

We took a nap. We woke up and made an iced espresso.

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.

10:0pm: Recapping Saturday afternoon, evening and night now.
We hung with the dogs all day. We watched the Olympics.
We watched YouTube vids and TV too. We wasted another Saturday.
We took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs. We took the dogs outside.
We ate four slices of leftover pizza for dinner and drank another iced espresso.
Then we fell asleep. And we just woke up again. The dogs went outside again.

11:40pm: The neighbors are having a noisy backyard party again.
So, we went outside and yelled at them. And then we went dark.

“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:
(Not on this day, and now its been 16 months since we posted this warning)Screen Shot 2021-02-28 at 08.07.50
And DONALD TRUMP, MITCH MCCONNELL, AND THE GOP TRAITORS REMAIN
A CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER TO THE WORLD in the Summer of 2021!

NOTE:
There are some BIG HOLES in the Blog Posts from last week and this week.
TOO MUCH NEWS!
TOO MANY “Fake News” ACCUSATIONS BY THE ORANGE TURD!
TOO MANY LIES! TOO MUCH CORRUPTION! SO MUCH EVIDENCE!
We have been retweeting on Twitter to help amp up the volume.
We have been posting on Facebook and watching LIVE stuff on youtube.
Television and the Interweb are our friends now. Netflix and chill alone.
And so we are finishing this Blog Post on Monday, August 3, 2020 at 5:00pm.

On The Menu: Indian food delivered for dinner. Chicken coconut curry, lamb, banging bharta, basmati rice, onion kulcha, raita and cran-raspberry-orange juice to drink
116950089_3889161901110347_5030893757330873942_n

Today’s Distraction: Trump wants to ban Tik-Tok.
This Week’s Distraction: Trump wants to postpone the election.
Last Week’s Distraction: Trump wants to re-open the schools.
And the news media follows wherever he tweets….
TRUMP KNEW ABOUT THE RUSSIAN BOUNTY ON US TROOPS
AND THEN DID AND SAID NOTHING! HE IS PUTIN’S BITCH!

And every GOP Republican is GUILTY of TREASON for aiding and abetting Trump.

71094592_1396913960455952_3921433955907141632_n

TRUMP IS TRYING TO PERVERT THE ELECTION!
Trump is guilty of asking foreign governments to interfere in our elections!
TRUMP IS TRYING TO DESTROY THE UNITED STATES POST OFFICE!
TRUMP IS A RUSSIAN ASSET! HE MUST BE REMOVED FROM OFFICE NOW!
Trump is guilty of collusion! Trump is a TRAITOR! Trump is a CRIMINAL!

And because there isn’t any protest violence, the media coverage has moved on…

Screen Shot 2020-07-31 at 23.23.02

Portland, Oregon – Black Lives Matter!

No feds gassing people Friday night in Portland, Oregon. No police attacking people.
No Federal Gestapo bull rushing the crowd. And so there was no violence again.

The Corporate Media and news are bought and paid for too. They don’t bother with the truth, they only care about what they can “tease” in the bump before and after the commercials. The news is biased. There is no objectivity. They only use a soundbite or a video clip. For some the more salacious the better. KTLA news in Los Angeles are just a bunch of fucking vultures! Any murder, sex crime, or unfortunate death anywhere in the country and they are ALL OVER IT FOR DAYS sometimes WEEKS! From crime scene to execution KTLA will be there with news that doesn’t matter! Be sure to text to join the sweepstakes! How about a commercial or product placement disguised as news? Why are the anchors doing cooking and interview shows and running fashion shows?
So much stupid banter and not enough REAL NEWS! Just more talking heads.
Protesters attacked by LAPD, where is KTLA?
KTLA is covering the riot by “Antifa” and hiding the truth.
No story or they just go WHICHEVER WAY THE WIND BLOWS!

WARNING!
Trump and his cronies tried/are still trying to discredit Doctor Fauci!

107784762_1214228672297520_2042437104980245840_o

WE STAND WITH DOCTOR FAUCI!

Trump is attacking and trying to discredit DOCTOR FAUCI!
Trump approved the bullshit campaign and now denies it, of course.

Dr. Birx is a Trump stooge. She is a political tool, that’s all.
She has literally sat by while he has QUACK QUACK QUACKED!
ANY DOCTOR THAT SAYS IT’S SAFE TO OPEN SCHOOLS IS A LIAR!
ANY DOCTOR STILL SUGGESTING USING HYDROXYCLOROQUINE TO TREAT THE CORONAVIRUS SHOULD BE IMMEDIATELY STRIPPED OF THEIR MEDICAL LICENSE
AND NEVER ALLOWED TO PRACTICE MEDICINE AGAIN!

Wear a mask! But it won’t protect you.
Wash your hands! But it won’t protect you.
Social Distance! But it won’t protect you.
Stay the F*ck Home! BINGO!
ZERO CONTACT! THAT IS THE ONLY WAY TO BE SAFE!

IT’S SCIENCE! It’s an invisible airborne virus. You can’t see it.
It is designed to find and infect a HOST – a human host.
It kills. It causes permanent damage. It has long lasting effects.
There is NO CURE. There is NO VACCINE. There is “NO HERD IMMUNITY”.
The still don’t know what the long term consequences of being exposed are.
The virus is mutating. It is becoming more infectious.
The virus affects everyone differently. AND IT KILLS PEOPLE OF ALL AGES!
“Pre-existing health conditions” make you more vulnerable.
Old age and ethnicity are factors, and men are more likely to die.

CHILDREN CAN GET INFECTED AND THEY INFECT OTHER PEOPLE!

THERE IS STILL NO FEDERAL TESTING OR TRACKING!
“between 800 and 1,000 Americans are going to die every single day.”

152000+ US CITIZENS ARE DEAD BECAUSE OF THE TOTAL FAILURE BY TRUMP AND THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT TO PREVENT THIS CRISIS AND CONTAIN THE VIRUS!

And we still need a FULL QUARANTINE to stop the spread!
In two weeks the number of cases and deaths will double again!

YOU CANNOT TRUST THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT ANYMORE! IT’S SCIENCE!
TRUMP and The GOP Republicans continue to POLITICIZE THE PANDEMIC!

IT’S NOT A HARMLESS FLU!
Covid-19 attacks the respiratory system, and also causes damage to other organs, including THE BRAIN! CoronaVirus causes permanent and long-term illness.
In TWO WEEKS it will be even worse.  (and they are doing nothing to stop it)
Thousands more will die, and Tens of Thousands more will be sick, infected and spreading the virus further. And Trump/Pence think they’re doing great.

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

If you are reading this, THANK YOU!
Thank you for tuning us in. Thank you for reading our Blog!
THIS IS A MILESTONE. We started this Blog in February of 2013.
Yes, we have a “Seven Year Itch” and sometimes think about not blogging,
but it has been valuable to our experience during four months of Forced Lockdown.
(There are currently 50 Parts to our CoronaVirus! daily diary – read them!)
We thought about all the restaurants we “reviewed” and how they have to change their entire business model or go out of business. We thought about all the travel companies, vendors, and travel consultants we know that don’t have any business right now.
AND FUCK THE AIRLINES, HOTEL COMPANIES, CRUISE LINES AND CASINOS!
And please STOP BUYING THINGS “MADE IN CHINA” – SERIOUSLY JUST STOP!

“Say what you will about science…”

Logic follows clearly defined rules and tests for critical thinking. Logic also seeks tangible, visible or audible proof of a sound thought process by reasoning.

Greek philosopher Aristotle (384-322 B.C.) invented logic. He wrote the first known treatises of logical theory and taught the first logic classes in history. He was a student of Plato who was a student of Socrates.

The 2 types of logical arguments:
deductive and inductive reasoning provide evidence of the truth

logic

Science is the study of the natural world through observation and experiment.

Science is a systematic and logical approach to discovering how things in the universe work. It is the body of knowledge accumulated through discoveries about all the things in the universe.

Science is valued because the application of scientific knowledge helps satisfy many basic human needs and improve quality of life and standards of living.

“Science affects us all, every day of the year,
from the moment we wake up,
all day long, and through the night”

Spongebob’s Definition:
F- is for friends who do stuff together!
U- is for you and me!
N- is for anywhere and anytime at all down here in the deep blue sea!

From Scot Nery’s Blog:
We can trick people into really enjoying themselves and paying for fun. We just need to accept that they’re probably not going to pay for the fun directly. Here are some things to consider for the way we package fun entertainment.

  • coolness. people want something that’s cool and coolness can be expensive
  • social status. Like a selfie museum, it’s not always about being cool. It could be about looking valueable as an employee, or seeming like you fit in
  • memorable experience. A vacation is an example.
  • edifying experience. Maybe it’s educational or strengthening?
  • something expensive PLUS. The Palazzo circus show promotes themselves as a gourmet dinner plus entertainment.
  • connection to fame. See someone famous and be tricked into having fun
  • stress relief. If you ask adults why they play video games, they’re more likely to say this reason than simply that it’s fun, because stress relief is important
  • kids fun. if we give a kid something fun to do, it can be joyful to watch and also take away our headache for a little bit.
  • brand engagement. A good tv commercial is fun and it also is worth money to the brand because audiences deem it attention-worthy.

The scientific method is a method of investigation involving experimentation and observation to acquire new knowledge, solve problems, and answer questions.

tumblr_oycsqzBRbh1vy747uo1_500

Scientific method involves making conjectures (hypotheses), deriving predictions from them as logical consequences, and carrying out experiments or empirical observations based on those predictions. A hypothesis is a conjecture, based on knowledge obtained while seeking answers to the question.

The 3 principles of scientific thinking
The scientific method is practiced within a context of scientific thinking, and scientific (and critical) thinking is based on three things:
1. Using empirical evidence (empiricism), data collected through direct observation and/or experimentation. Observations are based on specific events that have already happened and can be verified by others as true or false.
2. Practicing logical reasoning (rationalism),
3. Possessing a skeptical attitude (skepticism) about presumed knowledge

The 9 steps of the scientific method in order
The scientific method and consists of the following eight steps:
1. Objective observation (remain totally value free when studying; try to remain totally unbiased in all investigations and experiments)
2. Ask a testable question,
3. Gather information and background research,
4. State a hypothesis (and make predictions based on it),
5. Design and perform the experiment and test the hypothesis (and predictions),
6. Collect data and make conclusions,
7. Draw conclusions and report,
8. Evaluate (and use the results to draw conclusions and refine the hypothesis, make new hypotheses and/or predictions)
9. Publish findings (optional).

source

When conducting research, scientists use the scientific method to collect measurable, empirical evidence in experiments related to a hypothesis (often in the form of an if/then statement), the results aiming to support or contradict a theory.

Scientific knowledge allows us to develop new technologies, solve practical problems, and make informed decisions

Five skills scientists use in observation to learn about the world:
(we observe objects and events using all of our five senses)
1. communicating,
2. classifying,
3. measuring,
4. inferring,
5. predicting.

She Blinded Me With Science!
Synth-Pop and New Wave from 1982
Songwriters: Jonathan Kerr / Thomas Dolby
2313
It’s poetry in motion
She turned her tender eyes to me
As deep as any ocean
As sweet as any harmony
Mm, but she blinded me with science
She blinded me with science
And failed me in biology, yeh yeh
Now uh, huh huh
When I’m dancing close to her
Blinding me with science, science
Science
I can smell the chemicals
Blinding me with science, science
Science
Science
Mm, but it’s poetry in motion
And when she turned her eyes to me
As deep as any ocean
As sweet as any harmony
She blinded me with science
She blinded me with science
And failed me in geometry
When she’s dancing next to me
Blinding me with science, science
Science
Mmm mmm, mmm mmm, mmm
I can hear machinery
Blinding me with science, science
Science
Huh, it’s poetry in motion
And now she’s making love to me
The spheres’re in commotion
The elements in harmony
She blinded me with science
She blinded me with science
And hit me with technology
Good heavens Miss Sakamoto, you’re beautiful
I, I don’t believe it
There she goes again
She’s tidied up and I can’t find anything
All my tubes and wires
And careful notes
And antiquated notions
But, it’s poetry in motion
And when she turned her eyes to me
As deep as any ocean
As sweet as any harmony
Unh, she’s blinding me with science
She blinded me with science
She blinded me with SCIENCE!
