First LIVE performance of “So Many Roads”:
February 22, 1992, at the Oakland Coliseum Arena.

Thought I heard a blackbird singing
Up on Bluebird Hill
Call me a whinin’ boy if you will
Born where the sun don’t shine
And I don’t deny my name
Got no place to go, ain’t that a shame?
“So Many Roads” by the Grateful Dead
written by Jerry Garcia and Robert Hunter

Grateful Dead – “So Many Roads”
From the last Grateful Dead concert: – July 9, 1995, at Soldier Field in Chicago, Illinois

The Grateful Dead at Watkins Glen Raceway, New York July 28, 1973

8:30am: And TGIFriday! It’s Friday!
We were up all morning long, and we laid down after sunrise.
And then the dogs were awake and barking.
The dogs went outside. The dogs got fed. 
We drank a cup of espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.
We just published Part One of “The Days Between” Blog Posts.
We worked on future Blog Posts this morning too.
But TRAVEL MUST WAIT AGAIN, so we are in LIMBO right now.
There are ROOFERS on our street, and they start too early.
They are replacing the wood shake roof across the street this week.
(Can’t even imagine how HOT it must be up there in August!)

Today’s SECRET WORD is HELP:
Screen Shot 2021-08-06 at 03.19.21
-make it easier by offering one’s services/resources
-serve someone with (food or drink)
-improve (a situation or problem); be of benefit to
-aid, assist, improve, remedy, support
-the act of helping someone to do something; assistance
-a person or thing that helps, a domestic employee
-giving assistance to
-an appeal for urgent assistance
– a song title and the fifth studio album by the Beatles

The Beatles’ “HELP!” was released on August 6th, 1965.
(WOW! We did not know that, and that’s a really weird coincidence!)

10:55am: We made another iced espresso.
Watching TV: “Flight of the Conchords” in concert on HBO.
+Surfing the interweb, and working on this Blog Post for a couple hours.
12:00Noon: We did a little dog grooming, and brushed out all the dogs.
We do a little bit everyday of course, but they all got brushed this morning.
We took them outside and now they are happy in the kitchen.
And we might be hungry.

It’s HIROSHIMA DAY! (aka “A-BOMB DAY”)
The anniversary of the first World War II Atomic Bomb attack on Japan.
Hiroshima Heiwa Kinen Kōen is a public park in the center of Hiroshima, Japan. It is a memorial dedicated to the first city to suffer a nuclear attack, the memory of the victims (as many as 140000), and to WORLD PEACE. Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park is visited by more than one million people every year. The annual August 6th Peace Memorial Ceremony is sponsored by the city of Hiroshima.

Old_and_New
The A-Bomb Dome is the former Hiroshima Prefectural Industrial Promotion Hall.
The building is the nearest building to the bombing that remained partially standing.
It’s now another memorial to the August 6th, 1945, 8:15am nuclear explosion.

“the Peace Memorial Ceremony has never once been cancelled since the Cenotaph for the A-Bomb Victims was built in Peace Memorial Park in 1952, the Peace Memorial Ceremony will be held this year in a similar manner as last year with strict COVID-19 infection prevention measures.”

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.

10:22pm: Recapping Friday afternoon. We made some lunch.
TV, interweb, YouTube, podcasts. We were mildly entertained.
We fell asleep with the dog and slept.
We woke up and then we went back to bed and slept some more.

On The Menu: Fried chicken breast, quesadilla with salsa verde,
and a dill pickle. With an iced espresso to drink.

We woke up again. The dogs got fed and went outside.
We made and ate some dinner at 10:00pm. GOOD SHABBOS!

On The Menu: Double helping of Mama’s homemade lasagna. And a coke.

NOTE: We were invited to Friday night dinner again.
We don’t feel it is safe to eat and party
with people not inside your bubble again….
WE DON’T KNOW: WHO IS FULLY VACCINATED?
WE DON’T KNOW: WHO IS INFECTED AND CONTAGIOUS?
Is it really safe to party indoors with people who are vaccinated? 
Do you know where they’ve been and who’ve they’ve contacted?
Are they being honest about their status and contacts?
So, we didn’t go the party and we ate our dinner alone.
And then we had a little dessert.

On The Menu: Chocolate Cake from Benes Bakery with Haagen-Daas
vanilla ice cream, Hershey’s chocolate syrup, and whipped cream229426016_5009305815762611_3786892256874291047_n

Moaning sweet and low
Thought I heard that KC when she blow
Down where the sun don’t shine

Spirit Airlines cancelled over 2000 flights this week!!!!! 
with more cancellations coming this weekend.
Passengers have been left stranded at airports across the country for days.
TOTAL FAIL. And there won’t be any penalties of course. 
Can you even imagine being stuck in line with hundreds of strangers
for hours with the Delta Variant spreading?

3:50am: Still awake. Working on Blog Posts, watching TV, surfing the interweb,
and watching YouTube vids and Livestreams. Sleepy time soon.

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZ

7:15am: We are awake again. The dogs got fed and went outside.
We drank a cup of espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.

8:00am: We took the dog outside again. Now it’s nappy time for the dogs.

Today is the midpoint of Summer in the Northern Hemisphere
and Winter in the Southern Hemisphere.

9:10am: The gardeners are here.
They’re going to work in the backyard today.
We did a little dog grooming. And we thought about some food.
But we don’t know what we want to eat right now.
And we’ve had our coffee already, and we don’t want to drink more right now.

10:00am: Okay, we made an iced espresso. Still no food.
We’re chilling’ in the Home Office with the dog again.

12:25pm: We woke up and took the dogs outside.
We ate some food. Then we fell asleep again.

7:30pm: We woke up again. Crashed hard. 
And the gardeners were just finishing up in the backyard for the day.
It’s Saturday night. We got the dogs. The dogs got fed.
The dogs went outside. Now we’re chillin’ in the Home Office again.
BORING. So BORING.
We put on some music and the dogs are napping now.

Recapping Saturday night. We worked on our future Blog Posts.
We watched TV, surfed the interweb, watched YouTube vids and livestreams, 
and we were entertained, occupied, and distracted into the early AM hours.

Criminal Complaint filed against New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.
Sexual harassment and retaliation? The Democrats are giving him up.
Albany, NY Police press conference today. Not good for him.
The NY Attorney General’s press conference was also not good for him.
THIS IS JUST MORE GOOD MEDIA DISTRACTION
FROM TRUMP AND THE GOP TRAITOR’S TREASON!

The Senate is meeting today to vote on the “Bi-Partisan” Infrastructure Bill.
And 700000 Bikers are still gathering in Sturgis, South Dakota, this week!
They didn’t learn their lesson from last year, of course.
YES, PEOPLE ARE REALLY GREEDY AND STUPID.

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

The SARS-CoV-2 Lambda variant, also known as lineage C.37, is a variant of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. It was first detected in Peru in December 2020. On 14 June 2021, the World Health Organization named it Lambda variant and designated it as a variant of interest – wikipedia

Investigators in Chile conclude that the lambda COVID-19 variant is not only more infectious than standard SARS-CoV-2, but could also possibly shrug off vaccines. The first case in the United States has been spotted at Houston Methodist Hospital. – July 30, 2021

120000 New COVID-19 Cases in the United States yesterday.
The highest daily number in six months! Delta Variant is spreading fast.
619900+ Reported US DEATHS from COVID-19 as of this morning!
Hospitalizations are rising. Children are being infected.
And so, LET’S SEND THE KIDS BACK-To-SCHOOL. WTF?
Deaths are increasing again. The unvaccinated are dying.
And so, LET’S REMOVE MASK MANDATES and RESTRICTIONS. WTF?
And only 50% of the US population is Fully Vaccinated.
And so, WTF? Are they just waiting for the vaccine-resistant variant?
WE WANT TO GO OUT! WE WANT TO TRAVEL! WE DON’T WANT TO WORRY!
WHO THE FUCK IS IN CHARGE OF THE PANDEMIC RESPONSE?
WHY ISN’T THERE A NATIONAL EMERGENCY MANDATE?
WHY AREN’T THERE DOMESTIC TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS?
quarantine-flag-300x200
THERE NEEDS TO BE A 40 DAY TOTAL SHUTDOWN.
QUARANTINE EVERYONE, EVERYWHERE, except for actual essential workers.
NATIONAL GUARD/LAW ENFORCEMENT if necessary to enforce the shutdown.
REQUIRE EVERYONE GET VACCINATED IF THEY WANT TO GO OUT IN PUBLIC.
EVERYONE. And Rapid Testing for EVERYONE EVERY WEEK until it is eradicated.
ARREST AND PROSECUTE ANYONE SPREADING MISINFORMATION AND LIES!

The Delta Variant is VERY CONTAGIOUS and it might kill you.
4,304,980 Reported Deaths from COVID-19 Worldwide!
(the actual number is much higher)
COVID-19 is currently affecting 220 countries and territories.

104825102_10157872196359094_2045855313057625377_n
If it was just the “vaccine-deniers” that were dying, that would be okay.
THEY ARE THE ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE AND THE STATE NOW!
Hospitals should refuse to accept patients who have not been fully vaccinated.
The unvaccinated should be restricted from ALL PUBLIC SPACES.
Masks that cover the nose and mouth should be required EVERYWHERE.

Thought I heard a jug band playin’
If you don’t who else will?
From over on the far side of the hill
All I know the sun don’t shine

9:10pm: We fell asleep and really slept.
The dogs went outside. The dogs got fed.
We woke up and thought it was morning, but it was actually sunset.
Wait, it’s Sunday night. We took a shower. We made an iced coffee.

10:15pm: We drank our iced coffee. We played with and groomed the dog.
We haven’t eaten since Brunch, so we’re thinking about food again now.

Wind inside and the wind outside
Tangled in the window blind

Lonely and I call your name
No place left to go, ain’t that a shame?

SEVEN MONTHS AGO, TRUMP AND THE GOP TRAITORS
TRIED TO OVERTHROW THE GOVERNMENT OF THE UNITED STATES! 

Breaking News from the State Department: (Why isn’t Mike Pompeo in prison?)
A $5,800 bottle of Japanese whiskey gifted to former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo by the government of Japan in 2019 is missing. Pompeo said he never received the bottle of whiskey and had no idea it was missing, or what happened to the gift. Pompeo’s lawyer, William Burck, told the Wall Street Journal that the former secretary of state had “no recollection of receiving the bottle of whiskey and does not have any knowledge of what happened to it.”
Earlier this year, the State Department’s independent watchdog group, Project on Government Oversight, found that GOP Traitor and Trump stooge Pompeo and his wife Susan “violated federal ethics rules by making over 100 personal, non-work related requests to department employees” (including ordering gifts, booking salon appointments, and taking care of their family dog).

Please NOTE THE DATE of our FIRST PUBLIC TRAVEL ALERT

NOTE: We had a doctor’s appointment on March 4th, and there were a lot of really sick old people waiting at the hospital, and it totally freaked us out! We went into full “self-isolation” on March 5 or 6, and have only been out in public to go grocery shopping at the local markets a few times. And the last time we went to the market we got really freaked out by the crowd of people and lack of “social distancing”. Had four food deliveries since the forced lockdown began: two pizzas, Chinese food one night, and then Indian food last Friday (see our previous Blog Posts). So this is about DAY 45 of QUARANTINE!

Tuesday, April 21, 2020 

6:00am We’re still awake. We didn’t sleep. We tried, but couldn’t.
We also didn’t eat dinner last night. We ate a PB&J sandwich around 3am.
We cooked and ate some bacon an hour ago.
8:00am Just fell asleep for about an hour and a half, and then woke up, took the dogs outside and fed them, got the newspapers, and now the morning business is done.
Drank a half glass of orange-pineapple juice, ate a piece of fresh pineapple,
and made a cup of espresso. And then we turned on the morning “news”….

Research at USC: (preliminary study – first round of testing)
Antibody tests suggest in L.A. County 200000-450000 people may be infected!
NO WAY TO KNOW THE REAL NUMBERS WITHOUT COMPREHENSIVE TESTING!

DANGER! News media is giving Maximum Coverage to small right-wing protests against the “stay-at-home” orders by extremist-terrorists in certain states. WHY?
Why is Trump encouraging these crazy protests and why is he promoting “re-opening” states that are suffering from outbreaks of CoronaVirus? Why is the news media giving these stupid manufactured political “protests” front page coverage?

TravelTuesday:
WE STILL WANT TO GO TO VEGAS! 

BUT LAS VEGAS IS CLOSED!
SAY THAT OUT LOUD! LAS VEGAS IS CLOSED!
TRUMP HAS KILLED THE UNITED STATES!

Some Amazon workers are planning a ‘”sick-out” beginning today to protest lack of “social distancing”, need for testing and sick pay, and unsafe working conditions….

The L.A. Regional Food Bank is giving away food in East L.A. today via a “drive-thru” distribution, people here are FOOD INSECURE! That means they don’t have food. 

TRAVEL NEWS: (Nobody is traveling, nobody is planning on travel anytime soon)
Airlines are in trouble. Cruise Lines are in trouble. Hotels are in trouble.
Tourist Attractions are in trouble. Restaurants are in trouble. You see the pattern.
Travel won’t resume until the emergency is resolved. There is no end in sight.
Cruise Lines may never recover, and they are responsible for spreading the disease!
Airlines, Hotels and Restaurants will have to forever change their business practices.
Tourist Attractions, Casinos, and anyplace the Public gathers in large numbers will have to adapt to the new need for safety. Insurers have to re-appraise conditions/coverage.
And the economy and the expected recession will affect travel plans for years to come.

At 12Noon We had a Happy Zoom Birthday Party for our Stepfather!
We also participated in an online Q&A about audiotape transfer to digital media.

6:30pm We may have slept. And we have been outside.
We did some “gardening” in the backyard. It’s a beautiful day here in L.A.
We had the dogs outside a couple times for long stretches and some barking.
We fed them and took them outside again. And now it’s time for our dinner.

Lifting Restriction and Moving to Reopen is a HUGE MISTAKE!
There hasn’t been a proper Quarantine/Social Distancing period.
They’re also now talking about a second wave this coming WINTER!
But there’s about to be a second wave, everywhere there were protests, church meetings, and other large gatherings…. also, the homeless population have no place to isolate, clean themselves, wash their hands, etc. (also, some don’t even know there’s a virus!)
$484 Billion Dollars MORE from the government!
This time for small businesses who got totally screwed by big business
(publicly traded corporations) in the first round of relief.
People who need it are still waiting on the money!
Checks for individuals and families were delayed for Trump’s signature!
Executive order to halt immigration? CRAZY!
Just SCAPEGOATING! Just another DISTRACTION!
Just a RACIST POLITICAL MOVE TO RESTRICT IMMIGRATION!
and cause further more chaos and division.

And the news media keeps bombarding us with these “Positive Spin” moments, that we tried to be specific about in a previous Blog Post. A wedding without guests, who sent pictures for the pews, so “they would be there in spirit”. And then a drive-by birthday! And then viral dancing with Grandma from far away! And FOOD DRIVES and volunteers!

Now there’s a CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT filed against MLB and the LA Dodgers!
Major League Baseball has refused to refund tickets for the 2020 season, because the games aren’t cancelled yet…. a common practice at TicketMaster and LiveNation right now as they are losing more money everyday as this crisis goes on. So, fans who are getting stiffed on their tickets, some in for more than $5000 and they want their money!

8:00pm Okay, we ate dinner and watched “Jeopardy”.

On The Menu: Chili dogs! 2 long Polish dogs, cut to fit 3 buns, with mustard, cheese, chopped onion, and spicy steak chili from last weekend. With a dill pickle, celery, half an avocado, strawberries, and red grapes.

Chili Dogs!

10:00pm We fell asleep for a little bit, and woke up again.

15000+ Reported Cases and 660+ Reported DEATHS in Los Angeles County
33000+ Reported Cases and 1260+ Reported DEATHS in California
826000+ Reported Cases and 45000+ Reported DEATHS in the United States

BREAKING NEWS!
Two Coronavirus DEATHS in Northern California (Santa Clara County)
on February 6 and 17, three weeks before the first official US death from the virus!
“there was community spread happening in California
as early as mid-January, if not earlier than that”

 

And Dead&Co. cancelled their 2020 Summer Tour yesterday:

“Due to the global coronavirus outbreak, and in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19, we sadly have no choice but to cancel the upcoming Dead & Company Summer 2020 Tour. The well-being and safety of the Deadhead community, venue workers and our touring family is of the utmost importance to us. We also want to provide you, the fans who’ve been hit hard financially during this difficult time with your money back. All tickets will be fully refunded at point of purchase. We are thankful for your love, your understanding and we look forward to the day when we can all be reunited. In the meantime, keep the faith and believe in the power of music. We will return. We will get by. We will survive.”

And we had a 3.7 magnitude EARTHQUAKE at 12:05am in Los Angeles!

STAYTHEFUCKHOME! STAYTHEFUCKHOME! STAYTHEFUCKHOME!

Not a Real Quote. DUH!

Charles Robert Darwin (February 12, 1809 – April 19, 1882)
He was an English naturalist, geologist and biologist.
He is best known for his theory of evolution based on natural selection.
His book “On The Origin Of Species By Means Of Natural Selection” published 1859.
(Darwin borrowed some ideas for his theory, including “survival of the fittest” from sociologist Herbert Spencer and “struggle for existence” from economist Thomas Malthus)
He is buried at Westminster Abbey in London, England.

Charles Darwin RIP 1809-1882

Darwin’s Theory of Evolution: (natural selection)
Species that adapt or evolve to meet the changing requirements of their natural habitat thrive and reproduce, while species that fail to evolve and reproduce die off.

“The Darwin Awards salute the improvement of the human genome by honoring those who accidentally remove themselves from it in a spectacular manner!”

Common Sense Is Not So Common.

“In the spirit of Charles Darwin, the Darwin Awards commemorate individuals who protect our gene pool by making the ultimate sacrifice of their own lives. Darwin Award winners eliminate themselves in an extraordinarily idiotic manner, thereby improving our species’ chances of long-term survival.”

Wendy Norcutt started collecting the stories that make up the Darwin Awards in 1993, while doing biological research at Stanford University. http://www.darwinawards.com

STAYTHEFUCKHOME! STAYTHEFUCKHOME! STAYTHEFUCKHOME!

“If the misery of the poor be caused not by the laws of nature,
but by our institutions, great is our sin.” 
– Charles Darwin

“Social Darwinism is a loose set of ideologies that emerged in the late 1800s in which Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution by natural selection was used to justify certain political, social, or economic views. Social Darwinists believe in “survival of the fittest”—the idea that certain people become powerful in society because they are innately better. Social Darwinism has been used to justify imperialism, racism, eugenics and social inequality at various times over the past century and a half.”
