The 86 Rules of the Bar!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Bar at the Roof on Wilshire in West Los Angeles, California

First, a very important message for all my Friends:
PLEASE 
DRINK RESPONSIBLY!
GET HOME ALIVE, DO NOT DRINK AND DRIVE!
“KNOW WHEN TO SAY WHEN!”
“FRIENDS DON’T LET FRIENDS DRIVE DRUNK!”

The Bar at El Torito Mexican Restaurant in Sherman Oaks, California

PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESE read these rules!!!

NOTE: We ripped these rules from the interweb.
“Learn it. Know it. Live it.”

1. If you owe someone money, always pay them back in a bar.
Preferably during Happy Hour.

2. Always toast before doing a shot.

3. Whoever buys the shots gets the first chance to offer a toast.

4. Change your toast at least once a month.

5. Buying someone a drink is five times better than a handshake.

The Casino Bar at The Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada

6. Buying a strange woman a drink is still cool. Buying all her drinks is really dumb.

7. Never bum more than one cigarette from the same person in one night.
NOTE: DON’T SMOKE CIGARETTES!

8. When the bartender is slammed, resist the urge to order a slightly-dirty,
very-dry, in-and-out, super-chilled half-and-half martini with a lemon twist.
Limit orders to beer, straight shots and two-part cocktails.

9. Get the bartender’s attention with eye contact and a smile.

10. DO NOT make eye contact with the bartender if you don’t want a drink.

227200841_2848826085380621_1411489795097638486_n

11. Unacceptable things to say after doing a shot:
“Great, now I’m going to get drunk.”
“I hate shots.”
“It’s coming back up.”

12. NEVER, ever tell your bartender they made your drink too strong.

13. If he makes it too weak, order a double next time. He’ll get the message.

14. If you offer to buy a woman a drink and she refuses, she does not like you.

15. If you offer to buy a woman a drink and she accepts, she still might not like you.

The Bar at the Lakeside Cafe in Encino, California

16. If she buys you a drink, she likes you.

17. If someone offers to buy you a drink, do not upgrade your liquor preference.

18. Always have a corkscrew in your house.

19. If you don’t have a corkscrew, push the cork down into the bottle with a pen.

20. Drink one girly drink in public….
and you will forever be known as the guy who drinks girly drinks.

21. Our parents were better drinkers than we are.

22. Never talk to someone in the restroom unless you’re doing the same thing:
urinating, waiting in line or washing your hands.

23. Girls hang out, apply make-up, and have long talks in the bathroom.
Men do not.

24. After your sixth drink, do not look at yourself in the mirror.
It will shake your confidence.

25. It is only permissible to shout ‘woo-hoo!’
if you are doing a shot with four or more people.

130304124242-big-lebowski-story-top

26. If there is a DJ, you can request a song only once per night.
If he doesn’t play it within half an hour, don’t approach him again.
If he does play it, don’t approach him again.

27. Learn how to make a rose out of a bar napkin.
You’ll be surprised how well it works.

28. If you can’t afford to tip, you can’t afford to drink in a bar.
Go to the liquor store.

29. If you owe someone twenty dollars or less, you may pay them back in beer.

30. Never complain about the quality or brand of a free drink.

1048525_677793648913871_47626874_o

Drink this.

31. If you have been roommates with someone more than six months,
you may drink all their beer, even if it’s hidden, as long as you leave them one.

32. You can have a shot of their hard liquor
only if the cap has been cracked and the bottle goes for less than $25.

33. The only thing that tastes better than free liquor is stolen liquor.

34. If you bring Old Milwaukee to a party, you must drink at least 2 cans
before you start drinking the imported beer in the fridge.

35. Learn to appreciate hangovers.
If it was all good times every jackass would be doing it.

Altitude Lounge in San Diego, California – Night

36. If you ever feel depressed, get a bartender’s guide
and then browse thru all the drinks you’ve never tried.

37. Try one new drink each week.

38. If you’re the bar’s only customer,
you are obliged to make small talk with the bartender.
Until he stops acknowledging you. Then you’re off the hook.
The same goes for him.

39. Never tip with coins that have touched you.
If your change is $1.50, you can tell the barmaid to keep the change,
but, once she has handed it to you, you cannot give it back.
To a bartender or cocktail waitress, small change has no value.

40. If you have ever told a bartender, “Hey, it all spends the same”
– You are a cheap ass.

The Bar at Kaleidoscope Pizzeria in Medford, Oregon

41. Anyone on stage or behind a bar is fifty percent better looking.

42. You can tell how hard a drinker someone is
by how close they keep their drink to their mouth.

43. A bar is a college, not a nursery. If you spill a beer, clean it up.
If you break a glass, wait for the staff to clean it up, then blame someone else.

44. Being drunk is feeling sophisticated without being able to say it.

45. It’s okay to drink alone.

George Thorogood LIVE – “One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer”
with Elvin Bishop at the Capitol Theatre on 7/5/1984

46. After three drinks, you will forget a woman’s name right after she tells you.
The rest of the night you will call her “baby” or “darling”.

47. Nothing screams ‘Gay’ louder than swirling an oversized brandy snifter.

48. Men don’t drink from straws. Unless you’re doing a Mind or Face Eraser.

49. If you do a shot, finish it. If you don’t plan to finish it, don’t accept it.

50. Never brood in a dance bar. Never dance in a dive bar.

The Bar at The Brickroom in Ashland, Oregon

51. Never play more than three songs by the same artist in a row.

52. Your songs will come on as you’re leaving the bar. (EVERYTIME!)

53. Never yell out jukebox selections to someone you don’t know.

54. Never lie in a bar. You may, however, grossly exaggerate and lean.

55. If you think you might be slurring a little, then you are slurring a lot.
If you think you are slurring a lot, then you are not speaking English.

funny_tough_lucky_drunk_leprechaun_sticker

56. Screaming, “SOMEONE BUY ME A DRINK!” has never worked.

57. For every drink, there is a 5% better chance you will get in a fight.
There is also a 3% better chance you will lose that fight.

58. Fighting an extremely drunk person when you are sober is HILARIOUS!

59. If you’re broke and a friend is “sporting you”,
you must laugh at all his jokes
and play wingman when he makes his move.

60. If you’re broke and a friend is “ragging on you”,
you may steal any drink he leaves unattended.

The Bar in Hollywood (that is no longer there)

61. Never rest your head on a table or the bar top.
It is the equivalent of voluntarily putting your head on a chopping block.

62. If you are trading rounds with a friend
and he asks if you want another, always say “YES”.
Once you fall out of sync you will end up buying more drinks than him.

63. If you’re going to hit on a member of the bar staff,
make sure you tip well before and after, regardless of her response.

64. The people with the most money are rarely the best tippers.

65. Before you die, single-handedly make one decent martini.

66. Asking a bartender “what beers are on tap?”
when the tap handles are right in front of you, is just like saying “I’m an idiot.”

67. Never ask a bartender “What’s good tonight?”
They do not fly Scotch in “fresh from the coast” every morning.

68. If there is a line for drinks at the bar,
get your damn drink and step the hell away.

69. If there is ever any confusion, the fuller beer is yours.

70. The patrons at your local bar are your extended family,
your father, your mother, your brothers and sisters.
Except you get to sleep with these sisters. And if you’re really drunk…. mother.

Poolside Tiki Bar in Las Vegas!

71. It’s acceptable, traditional, in fact, to disappear during a night of hard drinking.
You will mysteriously reappear, and your friends will understand. If they even notice.

72. Never argue your tab at the end of the night.
Remember, you’re hammered, and they’re sober.
It’s like a precocious five-year-old arguing the super-string theory with a physicist.
99.9% of the time you’re wrong and, either way, you’re going to come off as a jackass.

73. If you bring booze to a party, you must drink it or leave it.

74. If you hesitate more than three seconds after the bartender looks at you…..
you do not deserve a drink.

75. Beer makes you mellow, champagne makes you silly,
wine makes you dramatic, and tequila makes you felonious.

filepicker-lNYJU0ySCiEn5ktXU881_tequila
“Jose Cuervo, you are no friend of mine.”

76. The greatest thing a drunk can do is buy a round of drinks for a packed bar.

77. NEVER preface a conversation with your bartender
with “I know this is going to be a hassle, but . . .”

78. When you’re in a bar and drunk,
your boss is just another guy begging for a fat lip. Unless he’s buying.

79. If you are 86’d, do not return for at least three months.
To come back sooner makes it appear no other bar wants you.

80. Anyone with three or more drinks in his/her hands has the right of way.

Smuggler’s Cove Tiki Bar in San Francisco, California

81. If you’re going to drink on the job, DRINK VODKA.
It’s the no-tell liquor.

82. There’s nothing wrong with drinking before noon.
Especially if you’re supposed to be at work.

83. The bar clock moves twice as fast from midnight to last call.

84. An engraved flask is one of the best gifts you can ever give.
And make sure there’s something in it.

85. On the intimacy scale,
sharing a quiet drink is between a handshake and a kiss.

86. You will forget everyone of of these rules by your fifth drink.

Monday, July 19, 2021 – It’s the 200th day of the year!

mktplmonpromo

On this day in AD 64, The Great Fire of Rome begins
and it rages on for six days, and destroys half of the city.

On this day in 1943, during World War II,
Rome was bombed by 500 Allied Aircraft.

Today is the 87th Anniversary of The Original Farmer’s Market in Los Angeles.
Located at Fairfax and 3rd in Hollywood/West Hollywood.

1:20am: We finally got hungry enough to make some food at 1:00am.
On The Menu: BBQ steak (rib-eye) & jack cheese w/sautéed onions
on a toasted sesame bagel with a dill pickle
215880535_4951030291590164_2092221714362353656_n

2:15am: So, we’ve been bouncing back and forth between TV and the interweb.
Podcasts, YouTube, “Dune”, documentaries, news, “Two and a Half Men”, etc.
And we binge-watched the first season of “The Mandalorian” on Thursday.

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.

8:15am: We woke up around 6:30am. We took the dogs outside.
We fed the dogs. We took the dogs outside. We got the newspapers.
We drank an iced espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.
And now we’re awake and in the Home Office. Fuckin’ Monday morning.
Read our previous Blog Post “A Case of the Mondays?”

9:10am: We took the dogs outside again.
We drank another iced espresso.
We ate a toasted sesame bagel with cream cheese.

12:20pm: We took the dogs outside. We scooped the poop. We got the mail.
We put more water in the swimming pool…. but there might be a leak.
That’s a big problem if the pool is leaking! And it’s also really HOT outside.
!HACE MUCHO CALOR!
The housekeeper is here cleaning. The dogs are in the bedroom.
And we have local errands to run that we should have finished an hour ago.
Fuckin’ Monday.

208805362_1576678796010034_8356502406251992041_n

3:40pm: Well, after spending a HOT time outside, we got a case of the “fuckits”.
And we said “FUCK IT” and then we got undressed and took a nap.
No errands today. The housekeeper finished and left. We slept for a little bit.
We woke up and took the dogs outside. Now chillin’ again in the Home Office.
And we’ll do those errands tomorrow. Maybe.

There’s a brush fire burning in Flores Canyon in Topanga near Malibu….
(and at 6:30pm it’s pretty much contained)

There was a pursuit! First he’s going to rob someone with a machete,
then he’s going run from the police, hit a couple spike strips, still try to get away,
and then smoke a cigarette while the LAPD waits to arrest him.
Surrender when you feel like it. Suspect in custody.

6:30pm: We took a nap with the dogs. We woke up. We prepped their supper.
We took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs. We took the dogs outside.
It’s still really HOT out. We drank another iced espresso.

We heated up a meat pie. We ate it, but it sucked. And we’re still hungry.
We thought it was chicken, but it was beef? and mushrooms. BLEH.
218937533_4956139147745945_5069727481076286309_n

10:30pm: Fleas! And now we have fleas. The little girl just got a flea bath.
She went on vacation and came back with fleas….  we don’t have words.
Can’t deal with biting insects. And can’t deal with the other dogs right now.

The TOKYO 2020 2021 OLYMPICS begin this week.
217496361_4949536761739517_3742050912911376299_n
More athletes have tested positive for COVID-19 in Japan.
(71 cases among athletes, staff, and support personnel)
The Olympics will go forward despite the CoronaVirus Delta Variant
and rising case numbers in Japan and worldwide.
(1071 New Cases in Tokyo yesterday = case numbers are rising!)

NOTE: The TSA screened 2.2Million passengers yesterday (Sunday).


Tuesday, July 20, 2021 – Happy Birthday Bob!

On this day in 1969, Humans walked on The Moon. (maybe)
Neil Armstrong: “That’s one step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” 

219379961_4472485876096462_8246988265435095291_n

We ate that crappy meat pie for dinner.
And then we got hungry after midnight for some good food.
So, we banged out some real dinner at 1:00am.

On the Menu: Steak soft taco with salsa verde
219661105_4956138294412697_2869069672080848085_n

We woke up early. The dogs went outside. The dogs got fed.
And the dogs have fleas. We watched the launch on TV this morning.

216274310_10158385512503575_8778950766773013601_n

6:35am: Blue Origin “First Human Flight” (civilian space flight)
Amazon Billionaire Jeff Bezos and 3 other humans went for a ride.
A REALLY EXPENSIVE RIDE. 66 miles high, under 11 minutes.
What was the purpose? Why? And seriously, they didn’t go to space.
They went to an imagined distance that we call “space”. And they didn’t die.
220073538_10215915990207575_1351813359309672544_n
And Sir Richard Branson with “Virgin Galactic” shot his wad last week.

NOTE: When Bezos did land, the crowd around the ‘capsule’ was incredibly white.
White guys wearing cowboy hats and popping bottles of champagne in the dirt,
the only people of color we saw were the media people covering the event.

“Jeff Bezos’ recreational space trip cost $2,540,000 per minute,
and we’re still arguing about whether the billionaires need to be taxed.”
– Robert Reich

WEARAFUCKINGMASK! And wear it all the time.
The “rules” for mask wearing are ridiculous! On here, off there….
Indoors. Outdoors? WHO IS SAFE? Where are you safe?
99.5% of current COVID-19 DEATHS are unvaccinated people.
Too many people are still not fully vaccinated.
The Delta Variant is spreading rapidly. Now over 80% of cases.

Screen Shot 2021-07-23 at 03.28.09

7:30am: We are in a weird space this morning.
8:00am: We just washed the other little girl. She got a nice flea bath.
And we are also doing a load of laundry with all the cage bedding.

8:40am: Watched the Jeff and Mark Bezos interview with Anderson Cooper earlier.
Now watching the exact same interview with Michael Strahan EXACTLY THE SAME!
SAME QUESTIONS. SAME ANSWERS. 
Total Circle Jerk.

9:30am: We took the dogs outside. And now they’re all in the Home Office.

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZ.

4:15pm: We took a nap with the dogs. We woke up and took the dogs outside.
We played with them and had them in the Home Office. They’re all good today.
It’s HOT. We wasted another day. How is it after 4:00pm already?
We made/ate some lunch.

On The Menu: Chicken and cheese street tacos on corn tortillas
with salsa verde and guacamole and an iced espresso to drink.
217573146_4956137814412745_2533019810220447312_n

7:50pm: Okay, here’s the Tuesday update.
The dogs went outside. The dogs got fed. The dogs went outside.
We surfed the interweb and fell asleep for a little bit.
JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZ. We woke up around 11:00pm.
We made and ate dinner after midnight….sometime around 1:00am.
On The Menu: Bone-in rib-eye steak with sauteed onions, steamed broccoli,
and shoestring potatoes, with cran-raspberry-orange juice

Wednesday, July 21, 2021

5:30am: We fell asleep for a little bit and woke up around 4:30am.
We started binge-watching “The Mandalorian” season 2.
6:45am: The dogs went outside. The dogs got fed.

7:35am: We made an iced espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.

219290875_10222999720813987_6786578080903487255_n

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZ.

10:20am: We went back to bed. We woke up.
And there’s a pursuit on right now!
Burglary suspect driving a BMW around Upland, California.
He parked and bailed into a backyard under some trees.
Now he’s surrounded and hiding…. We made an iced espresso.
212089828_4958437664182760_4018819267505602672_n
11:20am: Well, everyone cut away from the yard to yard search.
So, we may or may not hear what happened. And that sucks.
When the media cuts away and then it’s over before it’s over.
The helicopters run out of gas, and there’s no backup to cover.
We are left wondering and fully unsatisfied without a conclusion.
So, now, on with our day. UPDATE: Suspect in custody.

Harvey Weinstein is back in Los Angeles to face more charges here.
RAPE AND SEXUAL ASSAULT. Harvey raped and got away with it for years.
He was already convicted in New York and will die in prison,
and his lawyers just pleaded “Not guilty” in Downtown LA…. SCUMBAG.

There’s MASSIVE FLOODING in Germany and in China! Climate change is real.
Wildfires are burning throughout the western United States.
Northern California and Oregon are ON FIRE again.
DROUGHT and BURN CONDITIONS are the worst they’ve ever been.

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZ.

3:15pm: We took a nap. We woke up and took a nap. We ate half a dill pickle.
And the gardener came. (leaf blower) We woke up. We made an iced espresso.

ANOTHER PURSUIT!
Chattering like hens, speculating, talking shit about stuff they don’t know about,
totally irresponsible journalism! JUST REPORT THE FACTS AND DON’T GUESS!

Got off the 110 in Pasadena, the Pasadena PD tried a PIT Maneuver and popped the rear tire.
The guy tried to get away, got back on the freeway, tire gave out, slow speed pursuit, and then the gut hit two freeway signs and then a highway divider. Stopped. Trapped. And he quickly surrendered. Suspect in custody.

4:30pm: “You are the father.” Maury never gets old…. really?
Switch to the local news. It’s HOT. And it might rain on Monday.

5:20pm: The dogs went outside. The dogs got fed.
We took a nice hot shower. We had a pizza delivered.
We did a load of laundry. We did a little organizing.

92439123_1216567998719680_9141907193128288256_o

On The Menu: BBQ chicken pizza from CPK

8:25am: We are awake. Hello Thursday morning. How is it Thursday?
We got woken up by the trash truck out front and the little dog in the bed.
We took the dog outside. We went into the kitchen. We took the dog outside.
We made and drank a cup of espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.

11:30am: We drank an iced espresso. The housekeeper is here.
The dogs are in the Home Office with us and they are napping now.
It looks like a dog bomb went off up in here. “The Dog Days of Summer”

7:40pm: Recapping Thursday afternoon and evening now.
We meant to do the errands we didn’t do on Monday, then Tuesday….
but we got a case of the “fuckits” and didn’t do anything again today.
We joined the club for a late lunch. Then we fell asleep around 5:30pm.
We just woke up and made an iced espresso.
The dogs went outside. The dogs got fed. The dogs are chillin’.
On The Menu: Club sandwich with sweet potato fries and frilly toothpicks:

We waited and then tried to order Thai food…. closed.
Tried to order Chinese food…. closed. So, we ordered a pizza and a salad.

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.

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!

the following Monday is a Federal Holiday
and a State Holiday in all US states except Texas.

It’s COFFEE TIME AGAIN!

Good Morning!
It’s COFFEE TIME AGAIN!
181075365_4711804605512735_2509508442618231228_n
“Wake up and smell the coffee.”
We LOVE coffee! Any time of day.
Drink it hot, warm, cold, or iced!

107384310_3819572158069322_6782448052720653619_o

Cafephile: The word “cafe” derives from coffee and the suffix “phile” means showing of fondness – therefore, a Cafephile is one who is fond of, or loves coffee very much.

Take another Break with us,
Read this Blog about Coffee and Have A Hot Cup of Joe!
And read our previous Blog Posts about COFFEE!

Wake up and smell the coffee!

“Sleep is a weak substitute for coffee.”
131335714_4300931159933417_1101649638698411941_n

Coffee is a brewed drink prepared from roasted coffee beans,
which are the seeds of berries from the Coffea plant.

176524709_10220313662291429_7838274507670830493_n

Espresso is a type of coffee made using high water pressure and finely ground beans to produce a small, concentrated shot of brewed coffee.
Espresso is a coffee-brewing method of Italian origin, in which a small amount of nearly boiling water (about 190°F) is forced under 9–10 bars of pressure through finely-ground coffee beans.

193678331_4821246847901843_9190736391558185761_n

Espresso is coffee brewed under pressure and requires a dark roast with a fine grind.
When a shot of espresso is pulled, all of the components of the crushed coffee beans are extracted by the percolation of hot water through tightly packed and finely ground coffee.

181735401_4714358338590695_4819122047946355907_n

8-ounces = 1 cup.
The exception is the standard (hot) mug-served cup of coffee measuring 6-ounces.
Today’s “cup” of coffee in the US is usually 4-ounces brewed using 5-ounces of water.

176835557_10220294908582598_8325470323999400457_n

People consume an estimated 2.25 BILLION cups of coffee PER DAY worldwide.

Coffee improves many brain functions including memory, mood, vigilance, energy levels, reaction times and other general mental functions.

The barista says, “Hey, we have a drink named after you!”
The blonde says, “You have a drink named Tiffany?”

Caffeine blocks the inhibitory neurotransmitter adenosine, so the amount of other neurotransmitters (norepinephrine and dopamine) increases, leading to the enhanced firing of neurons in the human brain (a stimulant effect).

152322021_4493438327349365_8315617266632171651_n

“It is “generally safe” for most people to consume three to four cups of coffee per day,
and that doing so may actually reduce the risk of certain health conditions.”

We are not a medical professional. We just LOVE coffee.
Overwhelming evidence has shown that when consumed in moderation (400mg of caffeine per day) four cups of coffee are safe for the general population. Federal dietary guidelines suggest three to five 8-ounce cups of coffee per day (up to 400 milligrams of caffeine) can be a part of a healthy diet.

94640151_3616574528369087_6029142800837115904_n

SCIENCE!
Coffee contains nutrients, including riboflavin (B-2), niacin (B-3), pantothenic acid (B-5) magnesium, potassium, manganese, and various phenolic compounds (polyphenols are antioxidants).

52993365_2703169436376272_8446474498105933824_o

Coffee can reduce the risk of liver cancer, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, and cirrhosis.
Italian researchers found coffee consumption lowers the risk of liver cancer by ~40%.
Coffee may help protect against type 2 diabetes.
Coffee may also lower the risk of gallstone disease
Caffeine may help prevent Parkinson’s disease.

Coffee in moderation (two 8-ounce servings per day) may protect against heart failure and may lower the risk of heart disease and stroke.

Several studies show coffee drinkers have up to a 65% lower risk of Alzheimer’s disease.

Black coffee (without milk/cream) is very low in calories: only ~2 calories.
Of course adding milk, cream or sugar will increase the calories in the drink.

“Coffee is the most important meal of the day.”

Caffeine can improve mental performance:
focus, alertness, attention and concentration.
Caffeine in coffee is a mild stimulant for the CNS (central nervous system).
It is the best mood-lifting agent due to the antioxidants
and blocks mood-depressing chemicals in the brain.
And it has been associated with a lessened risk of depression.
Caffeine consumption may be associated
with an increase in the availability of dopamine receptors in the brain
Drinking at least two cups of coffee per day
promotes the greatest mental health benefits.

Barista: How do you take your coffee?
Us: Very, very seriously.

Q: How did the hipster burn his tongue?
A: He drank his coffee before it was cool.

Caffeine can boost metabolic rate by 3–11% and can increase fat burning
by as much as 10% in obese individuals and 29% in lean people.
Caffeine can improve physical performance by 11–12%, on average,
and it increases adrenaline levels and the release of fatty acids from fat tissues.

Coffee has a lot of nicknames:
java, joe, dirt, mud, brew, cuppa, daily grind, morning jolt,
lifeblood, tar, rocket fuel, pick-me-up, and even worm dirt.

“Why walk when you can stagger? Why stagger when you can crawl?…
Why crawl when you can block the sidewalk?”
Why crawl when you can slither to the bar?
“Why crawl when you can clutch at the grass to keep from falling off the Earth?”
“We can’t help the way you look…but we can help the way you feel!”

NOTE: Pre-Northern Renaissance Faire in 1987, we worked mobile security during the week and our good friend Dave Coker was rebuilding the alestands that had been left to rot after the Living History Centre ran out of money for teardown in 1986. We had too much fun that summer! May his memory be blessing!

Irish Coffee
is a cocktail made with hot coffee, Irish whiskey, cream and sugar.
Ingredients:
1-1/3 oz (2 parts) Irish whiskey
1 oz (1½ parts) fresh cream
2-2/3 oz (4 parts) hot coffee
1 teaspoon of Brown sugar (or to taste)
Shaved, powdered, or liquid chocolate for garnish (optional)
Directions:
Make the coffee. Heat the coffee, whiskey and sugar; but do not boil.
Pour into a glass or coffee cup, stir, and top with (whipped) cream.
Garnish with chocolate (optional). Serve hot.

In a footed glass mug, add whiskey (Jameson’s is recommended but any good Irish whisky will do), add the brown sugar and stir, warm it slightly (do not boil), and then ignite the vapors. This will caramelize the sugar as well as warm the mug. Blow out the flame after about ten seconds and then fill the mug with a strong coffee. Leave a finger’s width of space at the top, add heavy whipped cream by laying the cream over the back of a spoon, so it floats on top.
NOTE: Caramelizing the sugar will make the drink taste much better!

White Russian (aka “a caucasian, man”)

mqdefault

“Do I drink White Russians all the time? …
The reason it was White Russians is you could have a lot more fun
with a White Russian than you can with say, a vodka soda.”
– Jeff Dowd, the real Dude inspiration

16387067_1669019309791295_8522988273719717196_n

White Russian

The traditional cocktail known as a Black Russian first appeared in 1949.
The drink becomes a White Russian – just add fresh cream or half and half.
Neither drink has any known Russian origin.
Both drinks are named for the vodka that is the primary liquor ingredient.

The White Russian was popularized by Jeffrey ‘The Dude’ Lebowski
(aka actor Jeff Bridges), in the Coen Brothers’ 1998 film “The Big Lebowski”
but the drink has been around since the mid 1960’s.

NOTE: Use an 80-proof vodka, mix a White Russian according to the recipe,
and it would be approximately 24 percent Alcohol by Volume (or 48 proof).

NOTE: There is no celebration at our house this year.
It seems strange and very wrong to be celebrating anything right now.
The STAY AT HOME ORDER in Los Angeles County has just been extended.
New half-assed regulations that won’t work because they don’t work….
THERE NEEDS TO BE A TOTAL NATIONAL QUARANTINE FOR 40 DAYS!
Shut down. Lock down. Only absolutely essential businesses and travel allowed.
NO PARTIES. NO GATHERINGS. NO RESTAURANTS. NO PUBLIC ANYTHING!

tenor

10 MONTHS OF ISOLATION, DISEASE, and DEATH in 2020.
What new horrors will the future bring in the new year?
AT LEAST ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND MORE US CITIZENS WILL DIE.
GENOCIDE. Defined as the deliberate killing of a large number of people,
from a particular nation or ethnic group with the aim of destroying that nation/group.
TREASON and SEDITION! Arrest all of the GOP Traitors and conspirators!
Trump and the GOP Traitors have betrayed, robbed, and wrecked our country. 
Russians (our enemy) hacked our Government Depts, systems, and US Industries too.
Hospitals, healthcare workers, and funeral homes are at CRISIS levels/maximum capacity,
PPE: masks, gloves, gowns, scrubs and other important medical supplies are running low.
The vaccines (Pfizer and Moderna) have been approved but distribution is incredibly slow!
DO YOU TRUST THE GOVERNMENT? DO YOU TRUST THE CDC AND FDA?
DO YOU TRUST THE VACCINES? DO YOU TRUST BIG PHARMA?
We have tried to limit our political content during the holidays, and in our holiday blogs, but people are suffering and Trump and the GOP Traitors do not care, refuse to help, and are actually profiting from the public’s misery. JOE BIDEN WON THE ELECTION.
BIDEN WON
ANYONE WHO SAYS HE DIDN’T WIN IS GUILTY OF TREASON AND SEDITION!
AND THEY ARE ALL GUILTY! THE ONES WHO WERE SILENT ARE GUILTY TOO.
They betrayed their oath of office. They aided and abetted Trump’s criminal family!
THEY ALL KNEW AND THEY BOUGHT AND SOLD STOCK WHILE THEY CALLED IT A HOAX IN PUBLIC! THEN THE GOP TRAITORS AND MASK DENIERS JUMPED TO THE FRONT OF THE LINE TO GET THE FIRST VACCINES!
NO MERCY OR PARDON FOR TRUMP! NO PARDON FOR ANY TRUMP TRAITOR ! NO PLEAS! WE MUST PROSECUTE EVERYONE OF THE GOP TRAITORS AND CONSPIRATORS TO THE FULLEST EXTENT OF THE LAW!

The New Year begins on the small Pacific island nations of Tonga, Samoa, and Kiribati.
Then with nationwide celebrations in New Zealand, Australia, Japan, and South Korea.
And the last place that celebrates is Bakers Island in the central Pacific Ocean.

We’re wide awake and watching the Grateful Dead perform on 12-31-85.
And remembering the three New Years Eve parties we celebrated with them.

Just sayin’ that we might be starting to feel old now. This year has aged everyone.

Our New Years’ Resolution for 2021:
132101136_10221488443593277_7117146302317584345_n

We are invited to NYE dinner at our sister’s house. AND WE ARE NOT GOING!
We are 100% serious about ZERO CONTACT. Are you? REALLY?

We are also invited to our friend’s annual New Years’ Eve party.
SORRY NOT GOING THIS YEAR! The every year party at our friend home, begins with drinks and a potluck dinner buffet always with a lasagna. The celebration continues with more drinks and socializing with old friends (but that’s not gonna happen this year), and then dessert and more drinks before the balloon popping, confetti, glitter, and a champagne toast at midnight.
In the old days the party would go until dawn, but now everyone is old….

134961426_10217250825053972_1607822283703287381_n
NOTE: We stayed home on New Years Eve 1999-2000 because of Y2K!
And then nothing happened. NYE2000 sucked too.

2:50pm: ThrowbackThursday afternoon.
New Year’s Eve Day and we are “safer-at-home” all day!
We have a cup of espresso and we are getting ready for tonight.
WE ARE RIGHT HERE. Chillin’ in the Home Office all day.
And we are going to have a food fiesta later.

5:45pm: We took a little nap. We woke up. The dogs got fed.
We took the dogs outside and then put them down for a nap.
And we made the first plate of food (pre-dinner appetizer/crudité).

On The Menu: Bacon, dill pickle, carrots & celery sticks, raspberries, blueberries, red grapes, nacho cheese Doritos, chocolate mousse cake, and an espresso to drink.
134701412_4355779284448604_8090283494248464081_o

And let the evening festivities begin! 6:45pm. IT’S PARTY TIME!
Actually, we did some housekeeping. We dusted and vacuumed the Home Office today.
We did some other menial housework and now we feel like we accomplished almost nothing.
Our New Year’s resolution is “to make order out of chaos” – and that’s all.

You know it…. We have cake! Chocolate mousse cake!
Happy New Year! (and we still have to eat dinner)

We will update and probably add more stuff before tomorrow night.

Midnight in Las Vegas: Freemont Street Fireworks in Downtown Vegas!
(screenshot from Pompsie’s Livestream on YouTube)
Screen Shot 2021-01-01 at 00.05.41
Las Vegas (the Strip and Downtown) is a “super-spreader” event tonight.
So many people partying together as witnessed on the livestreams.
All those people are going to go home and take the virus with them too,
because “what happens in Vegas, doesn’t stay in Vegas” if it’s COVID-19.

12:45am: HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!
There were lots of fireworks in the San Fernando Valley and Los Angeles tonight.
But all of ours are illegal and the fireworks laws are not really enforced in L.A.
There were also a lot of illegal “underground” parties around town tonight.
Los Angeles County is already experiencing a medical crisis, and this won’t help.
Watching the lame-ass New Years Eve television shows too. BUT THEY SUCK.
There’s NO TRADITION left in the network broadcasts and no viewer loyalty.
And there really shouldn’t be any shows or celebrations tonight, with so many dead.
BUT AMERICANS LOVE A HOLIDAY PARTY – EVEN IF IT MIGHT KILL THEM.

1:11am: All’s quiet on the Western Front, pretty much. The fireworks have subsided for the night in our neighborhood except for a few random a-holes who still haven’t had enough noise yet. We’re sure it’s still going off in other parts of the city as usual. The police scanner calls were coming fast and furious all night long. Lots of crazy sh*t happening in SoCal on this New Year’s Eve because the idiots have nowhere to go and nothing to do except cause trouble!

We just reviewed the stuff we posted yesterday and last night,
and then we went into the kitchen and made an espresso.

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”

Prisoner of Fun

I’m Still a Prisoner of Fun!

The very Definition of FUN>

Noun: enjoyment, amusement, or lighthearted pleasure.
A source of fun, playful behavior or good humor, behavior or an activity that is intended purely for amusement and should not be interpreted as having serious or malicious purposes, (a place or event) providing entertainment or leisure activities for children.
Adjective: providing amusement, amusing, entertaining, enjoyable, lively, pleasant, pleasurable, pleasing, boisterous, convivial, or merry
Verb: to speak or act in a way that is not serious, to joke or tease.

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!

hunter-s-thompson-it-never-got-weird-enough

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!

BREAKING NEWS!
The Miami Herald reports that CoronaVirus was in Florida in DECEMBER 2019!

WARNING! WARNING! WARNING!
The CoronaVirus has MUTATED AGAIN!
  • The coronavirus that emerged in Wuhan, China, has mutated and the new, dominant strain spreading across the U.S. appears to be even more contagious, according to a new study.

  • The new strain began spreading in Europe in early February before migrating to other parts of the world, including the U.S., becoming the dominant form of the virus across the globe by the end of March, researchers at the Los Alamos National Laboratory wrote.

  • If the coronavirus doesn’t subside in the summer like the seasonal flu, it could mutate further and potentially limit the effectiveness of the coronavirus vaccines being developed by scientists, the researchers warned.

5:30am: Up All Night (again)

12:45pm: We are tired. No sleep. Crushing anxiety and just a little stress. And we are alone with the dogs, which is fine. Did the usual morning stuff. Take the dogs outside, feed the dogs, play with the dogs, get the newspapers, get the mail, and interweb time.
We almost went to the market early this morning, but we didn’t want to go out into public and deal with other people, so we didn’t get dressed, and we stayedthefuckhome.

NOTE: We have a list of stuff to get when we go shopping, but nothing is an immediate need. We have plenty of food and drink here to go at least another week if we had to, so we’ll wait until tomorrow. STAY HOME STAY SAFE!

7:30pm: We slept a little. Took an afternoon nap with the dogs.
And they’ve been outside, played, had their supper and went back outside again.
We just made an iced espresso (just what we needed right now)
and it’s time to think about dinner, or food, or something to eat.
We had a toasted bagel with cream cheese and an espresso for breakfast.
And we just ate a small dill pickle. But that’s all we ate today. (surprise!)

NO NEWS IS GOOD NEWS. Or, watching the news is just MORE BAD NEWS!
The Local News is TOTAL SHIT! Except for the high speed pursuits…. and there were three today, but they didn’t go long or far, and didn’t get very good coverage.
People are going stir crazy, and the criminals are wanting to get back out there.
Can’t even watch or listen to Trump, even the soundbites make me furiously angry.
There’s this clear pattern of DOUBLESPEAK, BLATANT LIES, FULL-ON MAKE-BELIEVE, AND TOTAL DISHONESTY that is a constant whenever he or his cronies appear.
We don’t trust his doctors, the CDC, the FDA, the “CoronaVirus Task Force”, or anyone else connected to Trump, his crooked administration. or the Republicans in Congress.

11:15pm: We fell asleep again sometime around 9:00pm,
and we just woke up again, and now it’s time for dinner after midnight.
On the Menu: NY Steak, sautéed onions, steamed broccoli and carrots, and brown rice.

Dinner at Midnight

Thursday, May 7, 2020

7:00am: We have been up all night/morning again. WideAWAKE.
And we just had an espresso to start the day.
And the dogs are fed and happy. They’ve been outside twice. They’re here in the office driving me crazy with licking, scratching, itching and dog stuff this morning.
We thought about going to the market again this morning
and then we decided we still have enough food for today, so maybe tomorrow.

1:00pm:  We went back to bed and woke up at 10:00am. We got the mail and brought in the trashcans.  Now we are hanging out with dogs on a HOT Thursday afternoon and thinking about lunch. Steaming rockin’ LIVE MUSIC performed by James Intveld on fb right now!

Lunchtime!
On the Menu: Tasty rainbow! A toasted egg bagel with hummus and cucumber; dill pickle, avocado, celery, carrots, tortilla chips with salsa verde, pineapple, red grapes, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and an iced espresso

We took an afternoon nap, woke up and then the dogs out. And then we went back to bed. We woke up and the the dogs got fed supper. Instead of cooking, we ordered dinner.
On The Menu: Delivery from Maria’s Italian Kitchen – Pepperoni pizza, chicken and broccoli pesto pasta, a Caesar salad and fruit punch Gatorade to drink.

Trump was briefed about the Coronavirus Threat 4 months ago!
He called it a hoax, a conspiracy theory, and then ignored and lied about it!
TOTAL FAILURE! Trump fired the NSC Pandemic Team in 2018!

“In January 2020, the Trump administration was advised that immediate action was required to stop the spread of COVID-19. According to NIAID Director Dr. Anthony Fauci, “there was a lot of pushback” to this advice. President Trump declined to act until March 16th. Epidemiologists now estimate that, had mitigation measures been implemented one week earlier, 60% of American COVID-19 deaths would have been avoided.”

Tuesday, May 5, 2020 – It’s Cinco de Mayo! STAYTHEFUCKHOME!

2:30am: We ate the chili dogs and fell asleep for a bit.
And when we woke up it was Tuesday morning around 1:00am!
We took the dogs out again and we are back in the Home Office.

11:30am: No one told me the gardeners were coming on Tuesday at 8:00am!
Of course, we were already awake, the dogs had already been outside and were fed.
So we got the newspapers and said “Good Morning” to the guys in the driveway.
They will be working in the backyard most of the day doing the hard labor stuff.
We had juice, an espresso, and a toasted bagel with cream cheese this morning.
We got the mail and we took the dogs out again a
nd now they’re asleep here in the Home Office.
Yeah, we’re hungry, and we could takea nap.
It’s a beautiful day today and it’s going to get HOT later.

2:15pm: Well, we didn’t eat, but we did take a nap for a little while.
And now it’s HOT and there’s a Hot Wind blowing. (Earthquake weather?)


And the day went by. So, we fed the dogs and we were outside in the sun.
The gardeners did a nice job clearing the backyard of stuff
and they pruned one tree all the way down to the sticks.

Ain’t No Bread In The Breadbox by Norton Buffalo
performed by the Jerry Garcia Band (JCB)

“There ain’t no bread in the bread box
Because we ain’t got no dough
It’s seems like we ain’t got enough time
to go fool around no more
You been working so hard for oh so long
What do you got to show?
Open up your eyes little darling
Lets pack up your things and go
Open up your eyes little darling
Don’t want to be here no more
Open up your eyes little darling
Been here for ’bout too long
Open up your eyes little darling
It’s time to move along”

“Shining Star” is a 2001 compilation album featuring performances of cover songs
by Bob Dylan, Jimmy Cliff, Smokey Robinson, Chuck Berry & more from 1989-1993

SOCIALISM! OMG Don’t Give Us $1200! said No Republican today.
500-BILLION-DOLLAR-BAILOUT FOR CORPORATION = SOCIALISM!

This is America! We can’t have the Government giving away money!
You know, the money THE TAXPAYERS pay each year, that money.
(Better cut back on those GOLF TRIP$ and CAMPAIGN RALLIE$ Trump!)

Socialism: a political and economic theory of social organization which advocates that the means of production, distribution, and exchange should be owned or regulated by the community as a whole.

90382630_10222906669473941_7751632408331419648_o

THIS POLITICAL AD! BIDEN 2020 BURNS TRUMP! TRUMP IS A LIAR!

See our previous CORONAVIRUS! Blog Posts for the List of TRUMP QUOTES while the number of cases exploded across the United States!
So sick of hearing him say they shut down travel from China….. WAY TOO LATE
and they didn’t shut down travel from anywhere else that already had outbreaks! And there weren’t any passenger screenings at US Airports, Border Crossings, or Ports! The cruise ship outbreaks were mishandled and then the QUARANTINE FAILED! The early passenger quarantines at March and Travis Air Force in California exposed more people and probably spread the infection when the unprotected healthcare workers were allowed to return to the general population.

NOTE: EVERYTHING TRUMP SAYS IS A LIE!

WARNING! WARNING! WARNING! WARNING! WARNING! WARNING!
DO NOT FOLLOW MEDICAL ADVICE FROM TRUMP! HE IS NOT A DOCTOR!

They are guilty of CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY! LOCK THEM UP!

Picture Time on Thursday!

Stay Home! Stay Healthy! Watch Police Pursuits LIVE on the interweb!
This guy’s a hero today and he’s a total idiot too. Good thing there’s no traffic this week.

Friday is “Aloha Shirt Day” here in Lockdown

When the doctor asks
“Would you slide your shorts down please?”
And cut to this song!

“Looking Out My Backdoor!”
A Creedence Clearwater Revival classic performed by John Fogerty

The House of Representatives passed the CoronaVirus Relief Bill and Trump signed it (in a “Bigly Way”) today. HUGE CORPORATE BAILOUT and a little money for the people too.

The local news media is acting like it’s a f*cking holiday
because there’s a giant Navy Hospital Ship in the port of LA….
Medical supplies are not available! Healthcare workers are working overtime!
There is a shortage of Personal Protection Equipment! People are dying!
1465 Cases and 26 reported deaths in Los Angeles County as of today!
New York City and New Orleans have very serious Public Health problems!
Italy reported that over 50 doctors have died from the disease!

90434040_10207208303962360_728103239932706816_n

The HEALTH SYSTEM IS FAILING ALREADY.

Los Angeles County ordered all Beaches and Trails closed today.
People were just not able to “social distance” properly in public spaces.
Santa Anita suspended all racing by orders of the Health Commission.
Orange County released low level offenders from County Jail.
Disneyland and WDW reported that they did not know when they would reopen.

91130976_1081077242249051_5187354976329924608_n

Los Angeles Sheriff Villanueva ordered gun stores to close, so today lawsuits were filed.
Are gun stores essential businesses? Do you own a gun? Do you want to own a gun now?

Today, CalShakes (The California Shakespeare Festival) in San Francisco cancelled their 2020 season. The Oregon Shakespeare Festival postponed their season until September.

Could not watch the Trump Jerkoff Press Conference today.
Did not want to watch. It is all Bullsh*t and Lies!

WARNING! WARNING! WARNING! WARNING! WARNING! WARNING!
DO NOT FOLLOW MEDICAL ADVICE FROM TRUMP! HE IS NOT A DOCTOR!

The idea that things would be back to normal and people would be back at work by Easter was laughed at, mocked, ridiculed, contradicted, protested, and basically written off by everyone except Trump and his toadies. CoronaVirus cases are multiplying!
The Republicans are willing to sacrifice the old and sick for their bullsh*t economy!

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!

91409178_1234517920086014_2994222350028767232_o

Trump translations:
“We’ll see what happens” = “I don’t know what’s going to happen.”
“Lots of people telling/asking me” = “I literally just made this up on the spot”
“Some people say…” = I am saying it, but I’m pretending it was someone else so you might believe it.
Nobody knew that….” = “I didn’t know that….”
“Believe me” = “Please fall for this lie.”
“My uncle, who was big into nuclear/medicine/etc.” = “where am I?”

NOTE: EVERYTHING TRUMP SAYS IS A LIE!
THE PRESS CONFERENCES ARE JUST PROPAGANDA AND LIES!
FACTS! NOT “Fake News!”
TRUMP’S RACISM IS REPONSIBLE FOR THIS!
You, your family, and your friends might die due to his ignorance and stupidity!

Trump is an Ignorant, Racist, Sexist, Anti-Semetic, Pathological Liar!
Trump mocks the Disabled, war heroes, POWs, Veterans and Gold Star Families!
Trump disparages Women, Mexicans, Latinos, Muslims and African-Americans!
Trump sexually assaults women and is an alleged rapist!
Trump lies, cheats and steals from hard working people!
Trump insults world leaders and threatens our international alliances!
Trump has business dealing with Russia, China, Mexico, Cuba and Saudi Arabia!
Trump admitted to not paying Federal Taxes and still hasn’t released his TAX RETURNS!
Trump is responsible for the BIRTHER LIE and continues to insult President Obama!
Trump denies Climate Change and calls it a Hoax perpetrated by China!

A TOTAL FEDERAL GOVERNMENT FAILURE!
“Instead of a public health system, we (in the United States) have a private for-profit system for individuals lucky enough to afford it”


WTF? We just heard that the CoronaVirus may have
already been here in California in November-December!

If so, we may have had it in December (and we rarely get sick).
Here’s our January 3, 2020 Blog Post:

january 3 Blog

Screen Shot 2020-03-27 at 18.53.11

NOTE: We are pretty sure we got infected at the Dead&Co show at The Forum in Inglewood, California on Friday, December 27th (read our previous Blog Post).
We got really sick just before New Years Eve (Dec 29-30) and self-isolated for a week until after Friday, January 3. We recovered relatively quickly after Saturday, but then we had the hacking cough (and phlegm) hang on for three more weeks into January. Normally we wouldn’t even Blog about being sick, but this hit us so fast and hard we wrote a post!

Paris Baguette Bakery and Cafe (in Encino)

The Paris Baguette for dessert! They have pastries and cakes and all kinds of good baked stuff! And they have food (sandwiches, and other eats), and coffee too.
But it’s all about the pastries.

Located in Encino in the Encino Town Center (aka Town & Country) Shopping Mall, there’s a big parking lot that’s usually pretty busy.  But once you enter, it’s a cafe, clean, no frills, with lots of light inside. It also smells pretty wonderful with all the baked goods.

Outside there’s an open patio, raised above the level of the sidewalk that fronts on Ventura boulevard. Not really good for conversation because of traffic, but a good place to sit and people watch and also view the busy activity at the Encino Commons.
