DONALD TRUMP on February 26, 2020:
“The 15 (cases in the US) within a couple of days
is going to be down to close to zero.”
and
“We’re going very substantially down, not up.”

STAYTHEFUCKHOME! STAYTHEFUCKHOME! STAYTHEFUCKHOME!
“SELF-ISOLATION” (FORCED LOCKDOWN) FOR 30 DAYS! = ONE MONTH!
Actually, more than a month, because we had a doctor’s appointment on March 4th, and after seeing so many sick old people and heeding the warnings from Italy and Spain, we decided to HIDE THE FUCK OUT two weeks before the California “stay-at-home” order on March 19th! PLEASE STAY THE F*CK HOME!

Is it F*ckin’ Thursday?

THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION HAS FAILED TO PROTECT THE UNITED STATES!
Trump was briefed about Coronavirus 3 months ago!
He called it a hoax, a conspiracy theory, ignored it and of course, lied about it!
A TOTAL REPUBLICAN FAILURE! Trump fired the NSC Pandemic Team in 2018!

Is it F*ckin’ Thursday? YES IT IS. (or was)
Recapping Thursday at 1am on Friday. It rained most of the day off and on.
We went to bed sometime this morning and woke up and let the dogs out around 7am. Then we went back to sleep and woke up around 11am and fed the dogs late.
And we played with the dogs. And UPS brought a package, so we brought that in.
Got the newspapers, got the mail, and brought the trashcans in. Did some laundry too.
We had lunch around 2pm.

On The Menu: Toasted onion bagel with lox, cream cheese, and cucumber, dill pickle, carrots&celery, an apple, sour cream and onion potato chips, and a double espresso

92952408_3568318106528063_156284612836851712_o

We took an afternoon nap.
We fed the dogs their supper.

9:30pm PST: We ordered a pizza delivery.

On The Menu: Finally ordered a sausage and meatball pizza from D’Amore’s,
after a month of “self-isolation” forced lockdown paranoia and panic,
Of course, it gets reheated before eating…

92789084_3569129586446915_8446362442409181184_n

Is it customary to have pizza during Passover?
No, but 
these are extraordinary times. And we don’t really practice “religion” even though we celebrate the holidays. It’s thin crust NY style, which is almost unleavened.
First food we ordered for take out or delivery since this crisis really began a month ago.

And now it’s after midnight, and it’s another Friday morning again. Whoopee!

HOLY SH*T! F*CKIN’ SPIDERS! A second one tonight appeared on our desk in the dark.
We don’t mind spiders as long as they are not near us (or on us). But we have a clear rule about a spider appearing in our sightline near us… and sorry spider.

And another late night dinner.
On The Menu: Chicken breast that was defrosted that we needed to use. Spicy honey lemon garlic chicken with twice cooked potatoes and sautéed broccoli. We were going to do rice, but used the leftover baked potatoes from a couple days ago to avoid waste.

SOCIAL DISTANCING!
Stay at least 6 feet away from other people!
Wash your hands often! Use hand sanitizer!

Businesses can refuse service to customers without face covering on Friday morning,

“We mustn’t dwell. No, not today.
We can’t! Not on Rex Manning Day!”

We didn’t eat all day. So we made supper about 4:30pm.

Polish hot dog (cut in half) with mustard, cheese and chopped onion; dill pickle, red grapes, celery & carrots, tortilla chips and fresh made guacamole. Cream soda and an iced espresso to drink. (Didn’t we have this for Monday’s dinner at 1am on Tuesday? Yes, but no chips & guac or cream soda)

PASSOVER 2020 – Family Seder on Zoom at 5:30pm PST:
Why is this night different than all other nights?

Screen Shot 2020-04-08 at 18.57.19

When we were young and for many years, the Family Seder would be held at my Aunt and Uncle’s house in Woodland Hills. The WHOLE family! All my cousins, aunts, uncles, etc. and even family we didn’t know. When they moved to Agoura, the Family Seder moved with them. It was said that the house was purchased because it was designed to hold the 100 or so people at the party! Then, after my Aunt (of blessed memory) died from brain cancer, my Mother hosted a smaller Family Seder at our family home every year. Twice a year, on Passover and Thanksgiving, the immediate family and extended family, and friends of the family, and friends of friends of the family, would be invited to our Family Seder or the November holiday feast. Sometimes the party was small, just the immediate family and a few freinds, but usually it was about 20-40 people per gathering.
Tonight, a few of us (old family friends and close family) gathered together on Zoom at 5:30pm, set up by my step-brother, and we had an abbreviated “virtual’ Family Seder using modern technology. Certainly it was not at all the same, but we like millions of families, have adapted to this unbelievable “safer-at-home” situation as best as possible given the circumstances, to keep our family traditions intact and alive.
And so we say: Next year, anywhere together!

We would like to wish you all a Happy Passover! “Chag Semeah!”
Even if you’re not Jewish this year, may the plague pass over your house
and leave you and your family unharmed!

“We pour ten drops for the plagues upon Egypt…Each drop of wine we pour is hope and prayer that people will cast out the plagues that threaten everyone everywhere they are found, beginning in our hearts: The making of war, the teaching of hate and violence, despoliation of the earth, perversion of justice and of government, fomenting of vice and crime, neglect of human needs, oppression of nations and peoples, corruption of culture, subjugation of science, learning and human discourse, the erosions of freedoms.”

91917278_10222045112825104_924558003284213760_n

“Passover is literally about letting the Angel of Death pass over your home.
Staying home, avoiding the plague — that’s how to celebrate Passover. Don’t worry about kosher. If you’re not alive, you can’t celebrate anything.” – David Gerrold

12 Good films to watch this week: The Ten Commandments and Ben-Hur (the originals with Charlton Heston), The Prince of Egypt, Exodus, Raid on Entebbe, Spartacus, Glory, Schindler’s List, Jesus Christ Superstar, Monty Python’s Life of Brian, History of the World Part 1, and of course Scorcese’s The Passion of the Christ.

*The Answer is George Bush Sr. – No, We never met George “not gonna do it” Bush.
We did work a job with Ronald Reagan after he was the President, when he had Alzheimer’s, and you can read all about it, and our many other celebrity encounters, in our “Josh’s Entertainment History Page” on this Blog.




“That the pandemic occurred is not Trump’s fault. The utter unpreparedness of the United States for a pandemic is Trump’s fault. The loss of stockpiled respirators to breakage because the federal government let maintenance contracts lapse in 2018 is Trump’s fault. The failure to store sufficient protective medical gear in the national arsenal is Trump’s fault. That states are bidding against other states for equipment, paying many multiples of the precrisis price for ventilators, is Trump’s fault. Air travelers summoned home and forced to stand for hours in dense airport crowds alongside infected people? That was Trump’s fault too. Ten weeks of insisting that the coronavirus is a harmless flu that would miraculously go away on its own? Trump’s fault again. The refusal of red-state governors to act promptly, the failure to close Florida and Gulf Coast beaches until late March? That fault is more widely shared, but again, responsibility rests with Trump: He could have stopped it, and he did not.”  – The Atlantic

Trump and the Republicans in Congress are a Clear and Present Danger
to Public Health and Safety of the United States! LOCK THEM UP!

THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION HAS FAILED TO PROTECT THE UNITED STATES!
Trump was briefed about Coronavirus 3 months ago!
He called it a hoax, a conspiracy theory, ignored it and of course, lied about it!
A TOTAL REPUBLICAN FAILURE! Trump fired the NSC Pandemic Team in 2018!

Fire “Flare-Up” on Tuesday: Lake Sherwood is burning!

EXTREME FIRE DAMAGE! And potential for major flood damage soon.

The Woolsey fire burned the Santa Susana Field Lab, a federal Superfund site in the Simi Hills – site of the worst nuclear meltdown in US history in 1959.
The California Department of Toxic Substances Control said there was no reason to be concerned of “any risks other than those normally present in a wildfire situation” REALLY?

Physicians for Social Responsibility Los Angeles president Robert Dodge responded to the DTSC: the site now owned by Boeing is still radioactive and polluted despite the agency’s promise to clean it up EIGHT YEARS AGO.
These toxic materials are in SSFL’s soil and vegetation, and when it burns and becomes airborne in smoke and ash, there is real possibility of heightened exposure for area residents.”

Fire Damage at the Paramount Ranch in Agoura, California

Sugarloaf Peak burned . Can’t say it looks much like the mountain in the Paramount logo, but it is. Also aka “the sleeping elephant”:

“All of our permit files that documented the filming that was going on here are gone,” said Mike Malone, a Park Service veteran. Along with the Western town sets, the Paramount Ranch’s written history was lost when the fire hit the nearby Rocky Oaks facility, where the records were stored.

SEE OUR PREVIOUS BLOG POST FOR WESTERN TOWN FIRE DAMAGE!

Camp Hess Kramer’s wood Menorah and plaque honoring founder Rabbi Alfred Wolf are still standing after the Woolsey Fire. Most of the buildings burned and so did most of Camp Hilltop, Camp JCAMalibu also sustained some significant damage. Mon 11:30am report: Calamigos Ranch only lost 4 buildings (out of 70) and was pretty much undamaged. Many homes were lost in Malibu Lake, but some were completely untouched.

UPDATE> November 13: Leo Carrillo State Park has been closed until further notice due to the Woolsey Fire. The fire burned through the campground and several structures, such as the visitor center, sector office, employee residences, three lifeguard towers, Leo Shop structures, the Junior Lifeguard Complex and several restrooms.

California Professional Firefighters President Brian K. Rice issued the following statement following the President’s tweet.:
“The president’s message attacking California and threatening to withhold aid to the victims of the cataclysmic fires is Ill-informed, ill-timed and demeaning to those who are suffering as well as the men and women on the front lines.
“At a time when our every effort should be focused on vanquishing the destructive fires and helping the victims, the president has chosen instead to issue an uninformed political threat aimed squarely at the innocent victims of these cataclysmic fires.
“At this moment, thousands of our brother and sister firefighters are putting their lives on the line to protect the lives and property of thousands. Some of them are doing so even as their own homes lay in ruins. In my view, this shameful attack on California is an attack on all our courageous men and women on the front lines.
“The president’s assertion that California’s forest management policies are to blame for catastrophic wildfire is dangerously wrong. Wildfires are sparked and spread not only in forested areas but in populated areas and open fields fueled by parched vegetation, high winds, low humidity and geography. Moreover, nearly 60 percent of California forests are under federal management, and another two-thirds under private control. It is the federal government that has chosen to divert resources away from forest management, not California.
“Natural disasters are not “red” or “blue” – they destroy regardless of party. Right now, families are in mourning, thousands have lost homes, and a quarter-million Americans have been forced to flee. At this desperate time, we would encourage the president to offer support in word and deed, instead of recrimination and blame.”
California Professional Firefighters represents more than 30000 front line firefighters and paramedics in California.

UPDATE NOVEMEBER 20, 2018> REALLY? SHUT THE F*CK UP DONNY!

When Trump visited the fire-ravaged town of Paradise, California where 76 (and counting) Americans died, he called it “Pleasure” not once but twice! Then he lied again and again and again. And continued to make a complete idiot of himself.

NOTE: Here’s another draft from the past. We started this Blog before we received the news that two of our old friends died suddenly and unexpectedly over the space of two weeks, giving this Blog a whole new perspective. We left this one alone for a short time, tributes to Ann and Mario (of blessed memory) are in other Blog posts, and we returned and changed this around to make it something new, and then it sat again until today, when we finally published it. Take a moment in time and think about your life.

“Every year is getting shorter never seem to find the time…..”

Yesterday was the two year anniversary of the death of another good friend, and we also received word that another old friend from our past took his own life rather than face an uncertain surgery. He had no next of kin.

“TIME”– Pink Floyd (from Dark Side of The Moon)
DAVID JON GILMOUR, NICHOLAS BERKELEY MASON,
GEORGE ROGER WATERS, RICHARD WILLIAM WRIGHT

Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
Fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way

Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain
You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today
And then one day you find ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun

So you run and you run to catch up with the sun but it’s sinking
Racing around to come up behind you again
The sun is the same in a relative way but you’re older
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death

Every year is getting shorter never seem to find the time
Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines
Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way
The time is gone, the song is over
Thought I’d something more to say

Home/Home again/I like to be here/When I can
When I come home/Cold and tired
It’s good to warm my bones/Beside the fire
Far away/Across the field
Tolling on the iron bell/Calls the faithful to their knees
To hear the softly spoken magic spell

All that you touch And all that you see
All that you taste All you feel
And all that you love And all that you hate
All you distrust All you save
And all that you give And all that you deal
And all that you buy, beg, borrow or steal
And all you create And all you destroy
And all that you do And all that you say
And all that you eat And everyone you meet
And all that you slight And everyone you fight
And all that is now And all that is gone
And all that’s to come
and everything under the sun is in tune
but the sun is eclipsed by the moon.
Pink Floyd “Eclipse” from “Dark Side of the Moon”

“Wish You Were Here” – Pink Floyd 1975

So, so you think you can tell Heaven from Hell, blue skies from pain.
Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?

Did they get you to trade your heroes for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
Did you exchange a walk on part in the war for a lead role in a cage?

How I wish, how I wish you were here.
We’re just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year,
Running over the same old ground.
What have we found?
The same old fears.
Wish you were here.

Depression? Questions to Ask – Before Giving Up!

Depression is a mood disorder that causes a persistent feeling of sadness and loss of interest. It affects how you feel, think and behave and can lead to a variety of emotional and physical problems. You may have trouble doing normal day-to-day activities, and depression may make you feel as if life isn’t worth living.

If you or someone you know is having suicidal thoughts, get help right away!

Call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 800-273-TALK (800-273-8255) to reach a trained counselor and press 1 to reach the Veterans Crisis Line.

Depression? Questions to Ask – Before Giving Up!

Are you hydrated? If not, have a glass of water.

Have you eaten in the past three hours? If not, get some food — something with protein, not just simple carbs. Perhaps some nuts or hummus?

Have you showered in the past day? If not, take a shower right now.

Have you stretched your legs in the past day? If not, do so right now. If you don’t have the energy for a run or trip to the gym, just walk around the block, then keep walking as long as you please. If the weather’s crap, drive to a big box store (e.g. Target) and go on a brisk walk through the aisles you normally skip.

Have you said something nice to someone in the past day? Do so, whether online or in person. Make it genuine; wait until you see something really wonderful about someone, and tell them about it.

Have you moved your body to music in the past day? If not, jog for the length of an EDM song at your favorite tempo, or just dance around the room for the length of an upbeat song.

Have you cuddled a living being in the past two days? If not, do so. Don’t be afraid to ask for hugs from friends or friends’ pets. Most of them will enjoy the cuddles too; you’re not imposing on them.

Have you seen a therapist in the past few days? If not, hang on until your next therapy visit and talk through things then.

Have you changed any of your medications in the past couple of weeks, including skipped doses or a change in generic prescription brand? That may be screwing with your head. Give things a few days, then talk to your doctor if it doesn’t settle down.

If daytime: are you dressed? If not, put on clean clothes that aren’t pajamas. Give yourself permission to wear something special, whether it’s a funny t-shirt or a pretty dress.

If nighttime: are you sleepy and fatigued but resisting going to sleep? Put on pajamas, make yourself cozy in bed with a teddy bear and the sound of falling rain, and close your eyes for fifteen minutes — no electronic screens allowed. If you’re still awake after that, you can get up again; no pressure.

Do you feel ineffective? Pause right now and get something small completed, whether it’s responding to an e-mail, loading up the dishwasher, or packing your gym bag for your next trip. Good job!

Do you feel unattractive? Take a goddamn selfie. Your friends will remind you how great you look, and you’ll help fight society’s restrictions on what beauty can look like.

Do you feel paralyzed by indecision? Give yourself ten minutes to sit back and figure out a game plan for the day. If a particular decision or problem is still being a roadblock, simply set it aside for now, and pick something else that seems doable. Right now, the important part is to break through that stasis, even if it means doing something trivial.

Have you over-exerted yourself lately — physically, emotionally, socially, or intellectually? That can take a toll that lingers for days. Give yourself a break in that area, whether it’s physical rest, taking time alone, or relaxing with some silly entertainment.

Have you waited a week? Sometimes our perception of life is skewed, and we can’t even tell that we’re not thinking clearly, and there’s no obvious external cause. It happens. Keep yourself going for a full week.

Symptoms of Depression:

  • Feelings of sadness, emptiness, guilt, worthlessness, helplessness or unhappiness
  • Angry outbursts, irritability or frustration, even over small matters
  • Loss of interest or pleasure in normal activities, such as sex
  • Sleep disturbances, including insomnia, early-morning wakefulness, or excessive sleeping
  • Tiredness, fatigue and lack of energy, so that even small tasks take extra effort
  • Changes in appetite — often reduced appetite and weight loss, but also overeating and increased cravings for food and weight gain in some people
  • Anxiety, agitation or restlessness — for example, excessive worrying, pacing, hand-wringing or an inability to sit still
  • Slowed thinking, speaking or body movements
  • Feelings of worthlessness or guilt, fixating on past failures or blaming yourself for things that are not your responsibility
  • Trouble thinking, concentrating, making decisions and remembering things
  • Frequent thoughts of death, suicidal thoughts, suicide attempts or suicide
  • Unexplained physical problems, such as back pain or headaches, cramps or digestive problems that do not ease even with treatment

If you or someone you know is having suicidal thoughts, get help right away!

Call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 800-273-TALK (800-273-8255) to reach a trained counselor and press 1 to reach the Veterans Crisis Line.

What the f*ck is up?
Your haiku is depressing.
Stop with the bullsh*t.
I hope you feel better now.
Don’t try suicide.
Why do you need a semi-colon?
You have survived.
You are loved by many.
Have a nice today.

C'mon, this is funny!

C’mon, this is funny!

If you or someone you know is in crisis, there are places to get help. The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is available at 1-800-273-8255. You can also chat with them online at suicidepreventionlifeline.org/chat/.

Here are some common warning signs of suicide, as provided by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention:

  • Talking about wanting to die
  • Looking for a way to kill oneself
  • Talking about feeling hopeless or having no purpose
  • Talking about feeling trapped or in unbearable pain
  • Talking about being a burden to others
  • Increasing the use of alcohol or drugs
  • Acting anxious, agitated or recklessly
  • Sleeping too little or too much
  • Withdrawing or feeling isolated
  • Showing rage or talking about seeking revenge
  • Displaying extreme mood swings

UPDATED 11-14-19: Did you know that if you text 741741 when you are feeling depressed, suicidal or anxious, a crisis worker will text you back and continue to text with you? Many people, especially younger folks, do not like talking on the phone and would be more comfortable texting. It’s a free service to ANYONE – teens, adults, etc. – who lives in the U.S. It’s run by The Crisis Text Line and is legit.

It’s ok to not be ok sometimes. People care about you and the world would not be the same without you in it. ❤️

 “If you want loyalty (in Hollywood) get a dog.

If you want loyalty and attention – get a smart dog.” ~ Grant Fairley

Yesterday, Thursday, December 18th, 2014, we bid a final farewell to our good “Old Boy”.

The hardest part of owning a dog (or any pet) is knowing that you will outlive it (barring unforeseen circumstances). Our dogs are members of the family (like children) and it is a terrible loss when they die. I loved my good boy Otis.

Otis was the leader of our little dog pack, up until last weekend, when the “Big Boy” challenged him and took the dominant position away. He was old, even in dog years, and his health was failing. He was suffering from painful arthritis and other problems for the last year. It wasn’t unexpected that his time would come, but it was still a difficult decision.

He went peacefully in the evening. Our wonderful veterinarian came to the house with her assistant, put him to sleep, and then they took him away.

It’s been a very sad week here. Thank you for your condolences and sympathy!

Don’t try suicide!
It doesn’t solve anything.
You just make a mess.

Reports are that Robin Williams is dead. Conflicting reports say it’s a hoax.

Regardless, don’t kill yourself.

UPDATE: Robin Williams RIP

May the Four Winds blow you safely home.

World Cup! United States - One Nation One Team!

World Cup 2014! USA! USA! USA! United States of America – One Nation One Team!

UPDATE: 1 July, 2014 United States eliminated. Belgium 2 – United States 1

Great game! – Extra time! – Heartbreaking loss! – Belgium wins. Thank you and good night! Tim Howard played an amazing game as Goalkeeper, making 15 saves and keeping the U.S. in it until extra time. Too many opportunities for Belgium and too many missed opportunities for the United States. It was a good run, but now the U.S. is out of the competition. Congratulations Belgium. Good luck against Argentina.

CHEERS!
