CORONAVIRUS! Part 46 (Sunday-Monday)

Sunday, June 14, 2020 – Flag Day!

US_Flag_Backlit

USA! USA! USA!

Flag Day commemorates the adoption of the flag of the United States on June 14, 1777 by resolution of the Second Continental Congress. In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson marked the anniversary of that decree by officially establishing June 14 as Flag Day.

“Resolved, That the flag of the thirteen United States be thirteen stripes, alternate red and white; that the union be thirteen stars, white in a blue field, representing a new constellation.” – The Flag Resolution June 14, 1777

Congress also adopted “the American continental army” on June 14, 1775,
so today is also the birthday of the United States Army.

The flag was designed by Francis Hopkinson,
a Continental Congressman from New Jersey.

And it’s #ObamaDay2020 too!

#RainbowLove by Laura Kimpton

The Gay Pride Parade was cancelled because of the CoronaVirus. So, BlackLivesMatter was going to have a protest march in its place, but the BLM protest was objected to by the LA Pride (the LGBTIQ community), so today there’s an “All Black Lives Matter” protest march against police brutality from West Hollywood to Hollywood and everyone’s invited. Just FABULOUS!

ALL BLACK LIVES MATTER! 6-14-2020

All Black Lives Matter! Black Lives Matter! Lives Matter! Matter!

Hollywood Boulevard 6-14-2020

And another fatal police shooting in Atlanta, resulting in the murder of another African-American man, Rayshard Brooks, for being drunk and sleeping in his car…. and more protests in the streets! A white woman set the Wendy’s where the incident occurred on fire on Satuday night. The officer who shot him was fired and may be charged. The police chief resigned. And CNN and local news media is running the clip of the attempted arrest and subsequent shooting 6 times an hour in hopes of inciting a race war….

Oh, and TWO AFRICAN-AMERICAN MEN WERE FOUND HANGING FROM TREES IN (Robert Fuller) PALMDALE/LANCASTER AND (Malcom Harsch) VICTORVILLE NEAR PUBLIC BUILDINGS and the cops called them suicides. So, now there’s an investigation into whether or not they were LYNCHED. They were. And another African-American man was shot and killed and another is missing out there in the Antelope Valley.
And the local news media didn’t pick up the story until two days ago….

And all kinds of Police Brutality and Violence is being exposed. The murder and the harassment of African-Americans is now THE TOPIC OF DISCUSSION AT LAST!
And the media has stopped covering most of the large protest marches, focusing on the “autonomous zone” in Seattle and the really large media events, like the burning of (Wendy’s in) Atlanta and the All Black Lives Matter March. The coverage has switched to “Re-opening” and the Coronavirus spike. And Trump’s failing health. #WeakPresident

Monday, June 15, 2020

2:22pm: We were up early, and the dogs got fed. Our housekeeper came again today, so we are “social distancing” inside the house. We are holed up in the Home Office all day. We have only journeyed to the kitchen once for breakfast (an espresso, an orange and a toasted onion bagel with cream cheese), and once this afternoon for another cup of espresso. And we went back to bed in-between. Trying to catch up on sleep we lost this weekend to the dogs barking.

4:00pm: We just did a replay of our Sunday Supper for late lunch on Monday.
On The Menu: Fried chicken, mac’n’cheese, cornbread muffin, dill pickle, and we substituted an iced espresso to drink.

Ohmmmmmm……. Mellow. Mellow. You must CHILL!

8:00pm: We did chill. We tried to nap with the dogs. We may have slept a little.
And we woke up. And the dogs got fed, and then we fell asleep again.

AND WHAT IS UP WITH THE FIREWORKS? Every night there are fireworks now.
From dusk until early AM we hear fireworks nearby. It’s very disconcerting.
And we are hearing planes again. We had a jet flyover at 6am the other day, so we quickly fired off emails to our Congressman and the FAA that will do nothing and get no response. And there are helicopters again, police and fire and news and some private helicopters that just love to follow the freeways. And traffic again. People are out and about and there is a lot of vehicle traffic, at least there was last time we went out.

On the Menu: (Tri-Tip) Steak and cheese sandwich on toasted challah bread

Big News for some of my friends! The Supreme Court ruled 6-3 that the 1964 Civil Rights Act protects LGBTQ people! All 50 States must not discriminate now!

Hydroxycloraquin has been deemed ineffective in preventing/curing Coronavirus and the FDA emergency use authorization was withdrawn today.
Trump, Giuliani, and his disaster profiteer friends will have to peddle it abroad now.

The Dickens Christmas Fair 2020 at the Cow Palace in San Francisco was cancelled today.
“Out of concern for the safety and well-being of our performers, vendors, staff, audience and our whole community, we will be canceling the 2020 Great Dickens Christmas Fair.”

And they POSTPONED THE 2021 OSCARS!
From February to the end of April 2021 next year.

ARE WE READY TO RE-OPEN?
IS THERE ENOUGH TESTING?

HAVE WE STOPPED THE SPREAD?
HAVE WE FLATTENED THE CURVE?

IT IS CRAZY THAT THE CITY AND THE STATE AND THE COUNTRY ARE RE-OPENING!
WHAT HAPPENED TO “STOP THE SPREAD” in 15 DAYS, 30 DAYS, TWO MONTHS?

This isn’t a second wave!
We’re still firmly in the middle of the first wave.
California alone has 3000 new cases per day and growing.
It is not safe yet. It is nowhere near safe.

Good Morning! It’s Saturday! It’s Memorial Day Weekend!
STAYTHEFUCKHOME! Don’t go anywhere. Don’t BBQ with friends!
Don’t Travel! Don’t visit the Beach! Just STAYTHEFUCKHOME!

We fell asleep around midnight, woke up around 3:00am
And we binge watched the rest of the first season of “Lilyhammer” on Netflix,
and then didn’t go back to bed until about 9:00am.
And then we didn’t sleep well, and the dogs were barking,
and the gardener did come today to do more work in the front.

12:45pm: It’s a beautiful day today. Happy Saturday.
We ate 2 hotdogs and a dill pickle for lunch and drank an iced espresso.

Pier 45 in San Francisco burned today.

Happy Sunday! He’ll be here all week.

2:30am: We fell asleep from exhaustion and woke up at 12:30am. We didn’t eat dinner. We were only up briefly, and then went back to sleep.
4:00am: We are awake again. We woke up, we were up for a bit and then we went back to bed.
8:30am: And we are awake again. The dogs barking woke us up, and the dogs barking again kept us up. And now the dogs are barking again….. and now we have a headache.

And it’s going to be HOT (and beautiful) today
and even hotter all this week here in the SFV:

NOTE: We were all over the place emotionally this weekend, and this Blog Post probably reflects that condition. We don’t go back and edit, re-edit, after we post usually, so please enjoy my misery and anger mixed with weekend entertainment….

Human impact on the environment, due to overpopulation, overconsumption, pollution, and proliferation of technology, has pushed the planet into a new geological epoch known as the Anthropocene. There are just too many people for the environment to sustain! The depletion of non-renewable natural resources is a major problem.

Culling the herd: (cull means to select or gather)
1. Literally, to separate or remove (and usually kill) inferior animals out of a herd so as to reduce numbers or remove undesirable traits from the group as a whole.
(When population densities get too high, they can become diseased)
“Removing some animals from a population creates more space and food for those that are left, and can disrupt social controls on breeding. Survival, reproduction and immigration all increase as a result, and the population quickly rebounds.”

43000+ Reported Cases and 2040+ Reported Deaths in Los Angeles County
90600+ Reported Cases and 3700+ Reported Deaths in California

97000+ REPORTED DEATHS of UNITED STATES CITIZENS as of Sunday, May 24, 2020
343000+ REPORTED DEATHS WORLDWIDE (and the actual number is higher)

Good morning. Well, not really. The Little Boy had a problem this morning sometime between 3:00am and 7:00am, and we woke up and had to take care of him. He may need to go to the vet, but because of the holiday, it would be the Emergency Animal Clinic today…. so we are watching him, he is active and happy, he had a bath, and ate chicken and rice for breakfast, and he wants to play, and we want him to rest. We don’t take chances, and if he gets any worse we’ll take him to the Doctor.

USA! USA! USA!

The United States flag is in mourning until noon on Memorial Day (4 U.S. Code §7m). When in mourning it should be half-staffed or, in the case of angled flagpoles or other cases where half-staffing is not practical, adorned with a mourning drape, as below, where the tail ends are as long as the flag. All other flags should be half-staffed (or not flown) until noon.

Baking Banana Bread! So, a little time in the kitchen, we had bananas on the brink, so we whipped up a loaf, baked in hour and it’s really good.

And Cornbread too! We meant to make it last week to go with the chili, but the milk was bad and we didn’t want to go to the market. So since we were baking, we decided to try a thin cornbread, rather than muffins or the cake-style we usually make. And it turned out okay, needs a little work, but it will be good with the last of the chili or a little butter and jam later this week.

 

4:30pm: Good afternoon. Well we fell asleep and got woken up by our cell phone.
Call it an incomplete nap. We checked on the dogs and everything seems to be cool.
It’s HOT outside. They weren’t kidding when they said there was going to be a heat wave.

7:00pm: And the dogs are fed. And we were outside. And we took care of fixing most of the morning stuff. And the Little Boy is doing fine. We are still checking him out for any problems, but he has been fine all day and we are changing his food until he’s better.

Let’s say you woke up with a terrible cough, a fever, and severe body aches. Immediately, you rush to the doctor and unfortunately, you’re diagnosed with COVID-19. For the last two weeks, you’ve been unaware that you were infected and you’ve ignored “the rules.” You’ve gotten together with some close friends for pizza, had a few people over, even visited a park and a beach. You figured, “I don’t feel sick. I have the right to keep living my normal life. No one can tell me what to do.”
With your diagnosis, you spend the next few days at home on the couch, feeling pretty crappy; but then you’re well again because you’re young, healthy and strong. Lucky you. But your best friend caught it from you during a visit to your house, and because she didn’t know she was contagious, she visited her 82-year-old grandfather, who uses oxygen tanks daily to help him breathe because he has COPD and heart failure. Now, he’s dead.
Your co-worker, who has asthma, caught it too, during your little pizza get-together. Now, he’s in the ICU, and he’s spread it to a few others in his family, too–but they won’t know that for another couple of weeks yet.
The cashier at the restaurant where you picked up the pizza carried the infection home to his wife, who has MS, which makes her immunosuppressed. She’s not as lucky as you, so she’s admitted to the hospital because she’s having trouble breathing. She may need to be placed in a medically-induced coma and intubated; she may not get to say goodbye to her loved ones. She may die surrounded by machines, with no family at her bedside.
All because you couldn’t stand the inconvenience of a mask; of staying home; of changing your familiar routines for just a little while. Because you have the right, above all others rights, to continue living your normal life and no one, I mean no one, has the right to tell you what to do.

PARTY AT GROUND ZERO!

PARTY AT GROUND ZERO!
written by Angelo Moore, Kendall Jones and John Norwood Fisher of Fishbone in 1985

maxresdefault.jpg

FISHBONE!

Fishbone! “Party At Ground Zero” music video directed by Henry Selick in 1985:

And Fishbone “Party At Ground Zero” LIVE at Fenders Ballroom, Long Beach, CA in 1987:

The song is about “Dancing around Armageddon” and having a good time without worry or concern….

Party at ground zero – A “B” movie starring you
And the world will turn to flowing – Pink vapor stew!
Johnny, go get your gun, for the commies are in our hemisphere today
Ivan, go fly your MIG, for the Yankee imperialists have come to play
Johnny goes to Sally’s house to kiss her goodbye
But Daddy says to spend the night
They make love ’till the early morning light
For tomorrow Johnny goes to fight
Johnny, Ivan, Ian, everybody come along for our nations need new heroes
Time to sing a new war song
[CHORUS]
Please do not fear ’cause Fishbone is here to say (say what?)
Just have a good time the stop sign is far away
The toilet has flushed and green lights are a ghost
And drop drills will be extinct
Speedracer cloud has come
They know not what they’ve done
Sin has just won
The planet is a crumb…
[CHORUS]

The term “Ground Zero” is generally used to mean the point directly above or below the earth’s surface closest to the detonation when a nuclear explosion takes place. The term is also used to mark the point of the most severe damage or destruction.

Inauguration Day has taken place on January 20 every year following a presidential election since 1937. Trump is scheduled to be sworn in as the 45th President of the United States on January 20, 2017 around noon on the West Lawn of the United States Capitol. The president-elect and vice president-elect will both take the Oath of Office, followed by the inaugural address and the presidential procession and inaugural parade down Pennsylvania Avenue to the White House.

The United States Capitol in Washington D.C.

“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”
– The Oath of Office of the President of the United States (as mandated by the United States Constitution in Article II, Section One, Clause 8)

14725476_699339283546760_50481089487878929_n

More than 50 House Democrats are planning to boycott the inauguration in Washington D.C. after Trump’s divisive campaign, and most recently his twitter attack this week on civil rights activist Congressman John Lewis (after he called Trump’s victory illegitimate due to Russian interference in the election). And 200,000+ people are also expected in the city the day after for the Women’s March on Washington to protest Trump’s election.

Trump is scheduled to be sworn in on January 20, 2017

Our Thoughts on Trump’s Inauguration:

The President of the United States is the head of state and head of government elected by the citizens (well, actually the Electoral College) of the United States of America to a four year term of office. The president directs the executive branch of the federal government and is the commander-in-chief of the United States Armed Forces the most expensive military (with the second largest nuclear arsenal) in the world.

NOTE: During the Cold War, a snack bar that used to be located in the open space in the center of the Pentagon was nicknamed “Cafe Ground Zero, the deadliest hot dog stand in the world.” Soviet satellites saw groups of military officers entering and exiting the hot dog stand at about the same time every day. They concluded that the stand was the entrance to an underground bunker.

plfpo_usa_washingtondc_googleearth_1

The Pentagon – Arlington, Virginia

“Rumor has it that during the Cold War the Russians never had any less than two missiles aimed at this hot dog stand. They thought this was the Pentagon’s most top secret meeting room, and the entire Pentagon was a large fortress built around this hot dog stand. They thought the officers were going to get their top secret briefings in a protected area, but really they were just going to get lunch” – Brett Eaton, an information and communications officer for Washington Headquarters Services

Cafe Ground Zero was torn down in 2006 and a new building was built in its place. The Pentagon was declared a national historic landmark in 1992 and the courtyard is one of five historically protected features of the building. The hot dog stand was replaced by a modern building of roughly the same size and exactly the same shape.

The New Building: The Center Courtyard Cafe at the Pentagon (opened in 2008)

Construction of the Pentagon was completed in approximately 16 months at a total cost of $83 million. Ground was broken September 11, 1941 and the building was dedicated on January 15, 1943. The Pentagon is the headquarters of the United States Department of Defense. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1989 and was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1992.

pentagon-1

Designed by American architect George Bergstrom (1876–1955), the building is 77 ft tall, and each of the five sides of the building is 921 ft long  with a five-acre central plaza. It has five floors above ground and two basement levels. One of the world’s largest office buildings, the total square footage is about 6,500,000 square feet. More than half, 3,700,000 square feet is office space. The concentric rings are designated “A” through “E” from the center out with additional “F” and “G” rings in the basement. “E” Ring offices have the outside view and are generally occupied by senior officials. Supposedly, it’s possible for a person to walk between any two points in the Pentagon in less than seven minutes.

The Pentagon After 9/11

On September 11, 2001, exactly 60 years after the building’s construction began, American Airlines Flight Flight 77 (from Washington Dulles International Airport to Los Angeles International Airport) was hijacked and deliberately flown into the west side of the Pentagon at 9:37am, killing 189 people according to the official report. 59 civilians and 5 terrorists on the airplane were killed, as were 70 civilians and 55 military personnel in the building. The damaged sections of the Pentagon were rebuilt in 2002 and the occupants moved back in August. The Americas Heroes Memorial and a chapel opened in 2002 and is located where Flight 77 crashed into the building. The Memorial is open seven days a week, year-round and is the only place at the Pentagon where photography is permitted.

After the attack on 9-11, the destroyed World Trade Center’s 15 acre site in New York City became known as “Ground Zero” and is now the new The World Trade Center and the National September 11th Memorial and Museum.

Armageddon as it is written in the Book of Revelation (the last book of the Bible’s New Testament) is the prophesied location of the gathering of armies for a final battle during the end times. According to the Book of Revelation, the purpose of this gathering of kings in the “place called Armageddon” is “for the war of the great day of G-d, the Almighty.” Also called the “Revelation to John” or the “Apocalypse” it is interpreted as either a literal or a symbolic location. The term is also used to refer to any “end of the world” scenario and the climax of the ongoing struggle between good and evil.

NOTE: In religion and theology, a revelation is the revealing or disclosing of some form of truth or knowledge through communication with a deity or other supernatural entity.

Tell me who’s that writin’? John the Revelator
Tell me who’s that writin’? John the Revelator
Who’s that writin’? John the Revelator…wrote the book of the seven seals!
– ” John The Revelator” by Son House

Memorial Day Weekend 2016

Memorial Day Weekend 2016

US_Flag_Backlit

USA! The United States of America!

Memorial Day: A Day of Remembrance!
Originally it was called Decoration Day. A day when Americans went to cemeteries and placed flags or flowers on the graves of the war dead. It was a day to remember ancestors, family members, and loved ones who made the ultimate sacrifice and died in service for the United States of America. Waterloo, New York, was officially declared the birthplace of Memorial Day by President Lyndon Johnson in May 1966, but over two dozen cities and towns claim to be the birthplace of the holiday. Decoration Day was created during the Civil War to honor the dead. It was officially proclaimed on May 5, 1868 by General John Logan, national commander of the Grand Army of the Republic: “The 30th of May, 1868, is designated for the purpose of strewing with flowers, or otherwise decorating the graves of comrades who died in defense of their country during the late rebellion, and whose bodies now lie in almost every city, village and hamlet churchyard in the land.”

Traditional observance of Memorial day has diminished over the years and many Americans have forgotten the meaning and traditions of the day. At many cemeteries, the graves of American war dead are increasingly ignored or neglected while backyard barbecues and a three day weekend are now the only celebration of the holiday.

FRIDAY

Our “three day weekend” began on Friday afternoon.

Dinner with a friend at Mucho Mas Mexican Restaurant in North Hollywood. We been here before and you can read about it (See our Previous Blog! Search Box: Mucho Mas^^^^^)

Dinner at Mucho Mas Mexican Restaurant in North Hollywood, California

On The Menu: 2 beef tacos, a cheese enchilada, Mexican rice, refried beans, a green salad with ranch dressing, fresh made tortilla chips & spicy salsa and a Dr Pepper.

DON’T DRINK AND DRIVE!
Memorial Day Weekend in Los Angeles is a “Maximum Enforcement” period by local law enforcement to combat drunk driving. On our way to NoHo we saw LAPD Metro cops on motorcycles already patrolling the San Fernando Valley. Once again we were the designated driver, so we didn’t drink any alcohol before dinner or at the restaurant, so our friend could enjoy his beers and stay safe in North Hollywood.

SATURDAY

Chore Day! Laundry and Spring Cleaning! We spent most of the day trying to clean and get organized. We are on a mission to get rid of the clutter and stuff we don’t need.

We finished and posted a new Blog about the “Slugfest in Hollywood” on Tuesday: the Dixie Hollywood Hotel, Dinner at Susan Finegar’s Mud Hen Tavern and The Cure at the Hollywood Bowl”.

Dinner: Enchilada Nachos!

Dinner: Enchilada Nachos! Used the leftover Mexican food from last night: cheese enchilada cut up with the rice and beans and then more cheese over tortilla chips with taco bell hot sauce. “Life is short, make it saucy!”

And we watched “The Intern” with Robert Deniro and Anne Hathaway on HBO. A cute film about a 70 year old retired business man (played by Deniro) who interns for a successful online women’s clothing company owned by a young, overworked woman with an adorable young child and a “stay at home” husband (played by Hathaway). The cast is rounded out by a crew of young, nerdy “Tech Bros” and Rene Russo as the company masseuse.

It’s really a romantic comedy without the romance between Deniro and Hathaway, adding Rene Russo as the hot, younger old person and love interest. It was a fun movie with a great cast, but the happy ending was kind of lacking in resolution and could have been much better! Deniro got to chew on the scenery and play a custom tailored part and that’s what he’s great at. Hathaway is a terrific actress, and this role mirrors her part in “The Devil Wears Prada” as a young and successful working woman conquering adversity.

And then we worked on laying out this Blog until we got tired and fell asleep.

SUNDAY

We slept in and then made breakfast/brunch.

13267916_1400742953285600_1124180386501651728_n

Sunday Breakfast – Bacon and Eggs!

Sunday Breakfast: Scrambled eggs with cheese & hot sauce, bacon, English muffins with peanut butter & raspberry jam, nectarine, orange juice and an iced espresso.

And we were going to do stuff today and then we turned on HBO and saw they were running a marathon of “The Pacific”, the under appreciated follow up to “Band of Brothers” in honor of Memorial Day. It’s a great period piece about World War II and the war against the Japanese. So, we didn’t watch all 10 hours, but we did watch…and worked.

Hot Dogs! Sunday afternoon with the dogs in the backyard:

We were invited to go to the movies, but passed because we didn’t want to see the film and we hate going to the theatre on weekends or holidays because there are just too many people, and all it really takes is one person with a cell phone to ruin the experience for me. So, we stayed at the home office and someone brought me dinner!

13327426_1401032309923331_8528309344499929008_n

Sunday “To Go” Dinner delivered: Orange chicken, steamed rice, sautéed vegetables from The Cheesecake Factory and a Dr Pepper. Tasty “comfort” food makes me happy.

Sunday night “must see TV” on HBO: New episodes of “Game of Thrones”, “Silicon Valley” and a previously aired episode of “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver”

SPOILER ALERT! 

“Hold the door!” We waited all week for this episode of Game of Thrones. Last week’s episode “The Door” was excellent. And sad. And emotionally involving. And as always, there are so many story lines running that each episode feels incomplete…
And so, with great anticipation we waited and watched this week’s episode.

Do you think Hodor will return as a wight?

NOTE: “Silicon Valley” is “genius” humor.
This week’s episode was pretty great. Oh the Bachmanity!

MONDAY – It’s Memorial Day!

Grapefruit, coffee, leftover cold orange chicken for breakfast and then back to bed…

The annual “Band of Brothers” marathon on HBO was interrupted by a LIVE televised Memorial Day Holiday High Speed Pursuit at noon!

Band_of_Brothers_poster

“Band of Brothers” is a 2001 American war drama based on historian Stephen E. Ambrose’s 1993 non-fiction book. It is based on the true World War Two story of the men of Easy Company from the US Army 101st Airborne division who fought in Europe during the war.

NOTE: We’ve seen “Band of Brothers” in it’s entirety a couple of times. So when a social media alert was broadcast about another LIVE high speed pursuit in Los Angeles, we switched over and began watching the car chase.

Memorial Day Holiday LIVE Televised High Speed Pursuit:

Memorial Day Holiday High Speed Pursuit in Southern California

The French Open was rained out so NBC stayed on the chase that started at about 10:30am… Stolen vehicle: a silver KIA Sorrento SUV with an “impaired” driver on surface streets in East Los Angeles. We picked up the pursuit at noon as the suspect got on the empty freeways and continued driving for almost 3 hours. NBC commentary was complete speculation and stupidity, so we switched over to ABC and then KCAL9 (our local CBS affiliate). Please just the facts, not ignorant newscaster’s uninformed opinions!

Memorial Day Holiday High Speed Pursuit in Southern California

At 1pm, KCAL 9 and FOX both cut off their news coverage and returned to regular programming, so we switched back to ABC and NBC because KTLA 5 News didn’t pick up the chase at all for their one o’clock broadcast. And just after 1pm he ran out of gas on the 405 near the Long Beach Freeway, smoked some more meth in the car and then surrendered without further incident to the California Highway Patrol.

Just another holiday Monday in Los Angeles! And with the suspect in custody and the chase over at 1:30pm, it was time for lunch.

13315446_1402045659821996_7450848702856861473_n

Monday Lunchtime!

Monday Lunchtime! A bacon, lettuce and cheese sandwich on challah bread; dill pickle, celery, carrots, blueberries, red grapes and pineapple juice.

Afternoon CHILLIN’ in the backyard and more episodes of “Band of Brothers” while getting some work done in the office was how we spent the rest of the day.

Monday Memorial Day Holiday Chillin’ on the Backyard Patio

We worked, we cleaned, we played with the dogs.

And then we got hungry and went to see what ingredients we had for dinner. We decided to make some pasta and did a little fancy cooking in the kitchen:

Dinner on Monday: Spaghetti with garlic alfredo sauce, grilled chicken, stir-fried broccoli & sautéed onions and a coke.

Where did the three day weekend go? Mostly boring. We hope you had a good one!

REMEMBER THE FALLEN! Some gave all so you could BBQ in peace.
Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

Terror in Paris!

Terror in Paris!

I haven’t posted since the attack. There’s been too much coverage. And I haven’t been attentive to other postings because I’ve been overwhelmed by our crazy world this week.

Vive La France! - French Flag

Vive La France! – French Flag

The horror! The shock! Terror in the civilized western world with many dead. This has even greater impact when you have immediate family visiting the city and in the vicinity of the attacks. Thankfully they are safe and now back in the USA.

fb post from my Mother in Paris, France the day after:
“Thanks to all who wrote. Lew and I are shaken but safe. We can’t wait to leave Paris and be home. We are sick about the terror and loss of innocent life, the grief so close and overwhelming.”

The Eiffel Tower

The Eiffel ToweI

I watched as the reports of the attacks came in and followed the news into the night. There was a short time between the news of the attacks and the text message from my mother telling me they were shaken but unharmed. They were in their hotel room when they heard news of the attacks. Their hotel was about 10 minutes from the Bataclan and they had been near the restaurant that was bombed earlier.

They were at the end of their trip and spent the next day in a locked down Paris before facing the crowds at Charles de Gaulle airport and returning to the USA.

It’s been 24 hours of terror everyday since on the news. Details and updates and raids on terrorists. Female suicide bomber, France bombs ISIS, Russia bombs ISIS, yeah that “mastermind” blew up real good and they identified him by the stains on the wall, the US bombs ISIS and they got Jihadi John with a drone strike, and the Republicans want to stop the United States from taking in Syrian refugees, and the French like to sing Le Marseilles, and the Syrian passport was forged, and Iraq told the French about the attack before it happened, and there were bombings in Lebanon and Kenya, and Anonymous declares cyber war on ISIS, and there was a video threatening New York, and a police dog was killed, and there are many tributes and memorials, and people changed their facebook profile pic and there were hashtags…. and everyone is afraid.

I’m going to post the blog at this point. Sat, Nov 21 at 6pm pst. Just saw a news item on a twitter page created by Mashable “En Memoir” to honor the victims of the Paris attacks.

NOTE: These pics are not in exact order. The route there was I-5 north from Los Angeles, California to Ashland, Oregon. The route back was I-5 south to 505 to 37 to 101 across the Golden Gate Bridge, through San Francisco to Highway 1 south to Santa Cruz and then south to Castroville and back to the 101 south to Los Angeles. There was also a brief detour from the 101 at Solvang to the Chumash reservation and back on the way home.

There were so many beautiful moments along the road, driving for hours with only the miles ahead before reaching my destination. For those of you who may have concerns, I’m very careful when using the camera while driving and never take pictures if it is unsafe.

Don’t try this. I’m a professional. Take pictures while driving at your own risk, don’t endanger anyone else…and make sure you get great pictures.
