NOTE: This is going to be a LONG Blog Post.
Friday, Saturday and Sunday of Super Bowl Weekend!
Plus the actual Big Game, and the aftermath.
And then Sunday night if we don’t fall asleep.
There will be politics, and CoronaVirus info too.
So, Are You Ready? Are you ready for some Sunday Blog Post?

Friday, February 5, 2021
WE ARE ALL “SAFER-AT-HOME” – DO NOT TRAVEL!
STAYTHEFUCKHOME! STAYTHEFUCKHOME! STAYTHEFUCKHOME!
WEARAFUCKINGMASK! WEARAFUCKINGMASK! WEARAFUCKINGMASK!

START THE MUSIC> “Count Your Blessing and Smile” – George Formby

4:20am: Well we’ve been up all morning. We just had another espresso.
The Big Dog threw up twice in the Home Office in the last hour….
FUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCK.
So, we cleaned it up along with a lot of swearing.

8:30am: We slept for maybe an hour…..
FUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCK.
The dogs got fed and went outside. We drank a cup of espresso.
We made another cup of espresso.
We ate a toasted bagel with peanut butter and raspberry jam.

3:45pm: We tried to sleep and got woken up twice.
We haven’t had a decent night’s sleep in a week. And we have a headache.
We drank a cup of espresso. We took the dogs outside.
We are all chillin’ in the Home Office now.

“Lou Dobbs Tonight” was cancelled by FoxNews!
2 Days after a billion dollar lawsuit was filed.

Christopher Plummer RIP (Arthur Christopher Orme Plummer CC)
December 13, 1929 – February 5, 2021
He was 91 years old (and he was Canadian, born in Toronto)
We had the privilege to meet and work with him, Chris Lemmon, and Martin Landau RIP on the feature film “Firehead” back in 1990-91. He was a great actor, a total professional, and a very nice man. May the Four Winds blow him safely home.

Government Officials in Oahu, Hawaii:
COVID-19 UK Variant – one case confirmed, today (and there are more)

How’s your Friday afternoon?
FUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCK.
Good Shabbos.

10:11pm: We picked up the grocery order at the market this evening.
Almost ready for Super Bowl Sunday now.
We got food and drink for the Big Game at home. STAY THE FUCK HOME!
And we might make an in-person market run before game time depending….
So the dogs got fed. And they were outside. And we ate dinner too.

On The Menu: Moroccan chicken, couscous, sautéed asparagus,
and peanut M&Ms for dessert. And later an espresso to drink.
Drink coffee. Drink water. Eat chocolate.

We are hanging’ with the dogs in the Home Office and now we are going to watch
“The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then the Bigfoot” starring Sam Elliott
if we can turn off the YouTube. So much stuff going on.

The 2021 Puppy Bowl XVII on the Animal Planet channel
hosted by Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg!
Sunday at 11:00am PST – Are you Team Ruff or Team Fluff?

FOOTBALL PICKS!
OUR SUPER BOWL PREDICTION: as of Friday 11pm
(we are not liable for any gambling losses, this is for amusement only!)
Kansas City Chiefs will win 23-17 (so take the UNDER)
Tom Brady will CHOKE. “The Fix Is In” (yes, we said it)
There will be a lot of money bet on Brady and Tampa Bay,
so an interception or fumble, can make a big difference in a 4 point game.
And The Weekend (without an “e”) will have a special guest…. Beyonce?
Coin toss: Tampa Bay
First Score: Kansas City
First Quarter: 14-3 Halftime: 17-10
Third Quarter: 20-17 Final Score: 23-17
First Turnover: Tampa Bay (interception)
And we’re taking Team Ruff in the Puppy Bowl

“I’m done betting on Pete Townshend” – Cousin Sal
(2-1 odds that Pete would smash his guitar during The WHO’s Halftime show)


Friday Night (Super Bowl Weekend) watching JacobsLifeInLasVegas Livestream
from The Fremont Street Experience in Downtown Las Vegas:

So, here is Las Vegas (Glitter Gulch) – The Fremont Street Experience Downtown!
Super Bowl Weekend Friday night at 10:30-11:00pm and the COVID-19 Pandemic.
We’ve been saying for weeks that Las Vegas is a massive SUPER-SPREADER.
Frontline Casino and Hotel and Restaurant Workers haven’t gotten the vaccine yet.
Tourists from Los Angeles, and other parts of California, and Texas (where they don’t wear masks), and lots of other places where the CoronaVirus is not contained, travel to Las Vegas and THERE’S NO SOCIAL DISTANCING! MASK WEARING IS STILL HAPHAZARD, ALTHOUGH REQUIRED IN THE CASINOS NOW, so it’s better than it was before, but still SUPER-SPREADER. AND PEOPLE STAND AND SMOKE IN PUBLIC WITHOUT A MASK. There were a lot of Police, Sheriffs, Marshalls and other law enforcement out in force.
One Metro Bicycle Officer, wearing yellow, said he had been reassigned to Fremont Street and it was an “all hands on deck weekend” because of the Super Bowl, and the CoronaVirus.
There is also a heightened “terror watch” because of the Trumpers and large party crowds.
It made us very nervous to see the big crowds, and no operating metal detectors, or Security checkpoints/bag checks, which they had around the winter holidays and New Years.
And while there were lots of cops, the through streets and the streets around the bars and casinos outside of the covered pedestrian mall weren’t blocked off to vehicle traffic.
SORRY, NOT SORRY, THIS DOES NOT SEEM SAFE TO OUR WORRIED MIND!

And we also watched our interweb friend Damon “Smoke ‘N’ Scan” on YouTube:

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

2:30am: ———— (we worked on this Blog Post all night and into the early AM)
3;35am: ————
4:45am: Time for “The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then the Bigfoot”
Our eyes are tired from bluescreen and typing, so we need to stop now.

9:15am: We slept a little. We woke up. We took the dogs outside.
We fed the dogs. We took the dogs outside again. We got the newspapers.
We made a cup of espresso and ate a toasted bagel with cream cheese.
OK, Saturday morning. The home heater triggered our asthma, and we woke up coughing and choking for air. We have a headache now.
FUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCK.

1:30pm: We tried to go back to sleep, and may have for a little bit.
Then the mobile dog groomers came. Today’s the day for the dogs to get groomed.
The big dog got a power wash, and the little dogs are getting cleaned and cut.
So there was a lot of noise and commotion when the groomers arrived, and now we are waiting for them to finish with the dogs so we can go back to bed….
Oh, we made and drank another cup of espresso too.

3:15pm: Our calm is restored. We are ready for Saturday.
And getting hyped for tomorrow…
it’s our long-standing tradition to watch “Where The Buffalo Roam” the night before.
la-la-et-buffalo-roam-jpg-20140709

Recapping Saturday Night: (we didn’t write anything until after midnight)
We took the dogs outside. And they got fed their supper.
We took the dogs outside again. And we ordered a pizza delivery.
The pizza came and we ate some. It was pretty pretty pretty good.
And we have some leftover for tomorrow and the big game too.
And then we took the dogs outside again, and we had them in Home Office.
We watched some TV and then some YouTube Livestreams and then it was late.

“Tickets? Passes? And a key?” – “Must be some sh*t going down somewhere.”

On The Menu: We ordered an extra-large sausage and meatball pizza.
129032155_4271164916243375_8280116042557839694_o

We didn’t watch much news today.
We also stayed away from Twitter, until late in the day,
and then we escaped the Twitter storm ASAP, before we got too worked up….
Today’s topic:
WHY IS LOUIS DEJOY STILL POSTMASTER GENERAL?
WHEN WILL PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN FORCE THE
POST OFFICE BOARD OF (Trump Stooges) TO RESIGN?

El6IK32VcAAcG-r

THE GOP TRAITORS (REPUBLICANS):
LOST THE HOUSE – NANCY PELOSI IS DONE WITH THE BULLSH*T!
LOST THE SENATE – VP KAMALA HARRIS CASTS THE TIE-BREAKING VOTE!
LOST THE WHITE HOUSE – PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN WON THE 2020 ELECTION!
NRA FILES BANKRUPTCY“Thought and Prayers” (they can’t move to Texas)

PARLAR SHUT DOWN – Fuck you Nazi scum. Fuck you ROGER STONE!
BILLION DOLLAR LAWSUITS AGAINST FOXNEWS – CANCEL FOXNEWS!
And LOU DOBBS CANCELLED – Now do Hannity, Tucker, Ingraham and Pirro.
And there is more coming. (thanks to Don Winslow on Twitter)

AND WHEN WILL THEY FIX THE FCC AND THE PARK SERVICE?
FORCE AJIT PAI AND THE TRUMP STOOGES TO RESIGN NOW!
WHERE ARE TRUMP’S TAX RETURNS? ISN’T IT TIME NOW?

“Are you ready for some football?” 

Sunday, February 7, 2021 – SUPER BOWL SUNDAY!
STAYTHEFUCKHOME! STAYTHEFUCKHOME! STAYTHEFUCKHOME!
Do not party with friends or family outside your bubble!

Screen Shot 2021-02-06 at 20.44.42
NOTE: This is a screenshot from Pompsie’s YouTube Livestream tonight.
SUCH A TEASE! STAY THE FUCK HOME! WE WISH WE WERE RIGHT THERE!
This is the Main Casino (table games) Salon for “High Rollers” and VIPs.
It was once upon a time one of our favorite places to play….
Caesars Palace used to be a world class joint
and the best Hotel and Casino in town.
But WHO LET ALL THE RIFF-RAFF IN? What happened to the class and style?
Okay, first they tried to turn it into Disneyland,
then they turned it into Disneyland for Adults,
then they forgot the first rule of running a casino in Las Vegas
(and this was told to me by a veteran pit boss way back when):
“IT’S ALL ABOUT BUTTS IN THE SEATS!”
The money is made in the casino. The HOUSE ALWAYS WINS IN THE END.
They monetized food & entertainment, and they cater to the “Burger King” crowd,
They nickel and dime the players. They even changed the rules to fix the odds.
The big corporate resorts forgot the Player’s Names and gave them plastic cards.
They took away the silver coins and gave them slips of paper with barcodes.
They added BULLSH*T RESORT FEES! They make people PAY-TO-PARK!
Clubs, and Ultra-Lounges, and Pool Parties became revenue streams.
Outside Attractions Opened…. drawing the tourists away from the casinos.
The “Law and Order” provided by the old Las Vegas Police and The Mob is gone.
CRIME, AND DRUGS, AND THE HOMELESS, AND GANG-BANGERS,
AND WORST OF ALL THE LOW-ROLLERS TOOK OVER.
Fast food joints and cheap souvenir (for big dollars) stores are inside the casinos.
They farmed out the retail space to any vendor who could pay the price.
They built huge shopping malls to maximize the square footage
and sell their “Made in China” crap to the unwashed masses.
JUST TRY TO GET A COMPLIMENTARY COCKTAIL!
OR A COMP ROOM OR COMP MEAL. “GOOD LUCK”

12:05am: Hey! We made it to Sunday.
We are chilling’ with the dogs in the Home Office just after midnight.
And it’s Super Bowl Sunday…. before it’s morning.
LOT’S OF HYPE. We made our picks. Not going to change them now.
We ate pizza, and we’ve been watching YouTube videos again.
Livestreams from Las Vegas…. SUPER-SPREADER EVENT EVERY NIGHT!

147226332_4461105277249337_1438810162235637657_o
Saturday night LiveStream from The Fremont Street Experience in Las Vegas:
147126360_4461105283916003_3464495152085488892_o

12:50am: We took the dogs outside. And then we put the dogs to bed.
And we made an iced espresso. And we just ate a piece of cold pizza.
We did a lot of work recapping Saturday night and building this Blog Post.
These Blogs don’t write themselves and they don’t appear by magic….
It takes a long time to write, edit, add pics and other stuff, and then finish.
And we’ve really made it a habit to write everyday during the pandemic.
SEE OUR PREVIOUS CV! BLOG POSTS! THIS IS “PART 119”.
(it’s also our Blog’s 8th anniversary and soon we’ll reach 200000 HITS!) 

4:05am: We motivated and became CHORE BOY for just a little bit.
We did a load of laundry and then we cleaned and sanitized the kitchen.
We also CERTIFIED our EDD Claim online for our first two weeks tonight.
We haven’t mailed the check request form yet, and we don’t have a Debit Card, so we are not sure what to do, because if they send a Card and we send the check request form, you just know there will be some kind of problem or delay.

5:50am: We just got busy in the kitchen: we cut some vegetables (celery and carrot sticks), decanted a big can of pineapple juice into a plastic bottle, and made a pot of mac’n’cheese with bacon for later today. And we made a cup of espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.

6:20am: We woke the dogs up and took them outside.
Then we fed them their breakfast and took them outside again.
We got the newspapers. And now the sun is coming up.

Screen Shot 2021-02-07 at 10.43.08

10:15am: We tried to run two errands this morning, but only completed one.
We tried to pickup our mail at our PO Box, but the Post Office lobby was locked, and there was a posted notice about changes…. don’t know if it’s COVID or if it’s still the USPS fuckery.
So we didn’t pick up our mail….
And we made a supermarket run before the game today,
to get some things they didn’t include that we wanted and to stock up on some other things.
NOW WE ARE READY WITH FOOD AND BEVERAGE.
We heated up 3 slices of leftover pizza and ate them for breakfast with an iced espresso.
And we took the dogs outside again, and now we’re all here in the Home Office at 11:00am.

2:05pm: And we are awake again. We just took a nap. We drank a cup of espresso.
Time for the pre-Game festivities. But first, we took the dogs outside for some business.
It’s a beautiful day outside! Blue skies, totally clear, 72 degrees and sunny!
And now it’s 2:30pm! Let’s go inside and watch FOOTBALL!

Are you ready Freddy?
Are you ready for some NFL Super Bowl Football?
super-bowl-web

NO. NO PARTYING WITH ANYONE NOT IN YOUR IMMEDIATE BUBBLE!
PLEASE STAY HOME! PLEASE DON’T EXPOSE YOURSELF OR OTHERS!
ZERO CONTACT! JUST STAYTHEFUCKHOME!

ZERO CONTACT IS THE ONLY WAY TO BE SAFE!
ZERO CONTACT WITH FAMILY YOU ARE NOT ISOLATED WITH!
ZERO CONTACT WITH FRIENDS!
ZERO CONTACT WITH STRANGERS!
DON’T GO TO CHURCH or TEMPLE or MOSQUE!
Do Not Socialize, Gather, Dine or Party outside your “bubble”.
DON’T GATHER IN GROUPS OF ANY SIZE!

C’MON, YOU REALLY DON’T CARE ABOUT EITHER TEAM!
The Chiefs? Really? Tampa Bay? Really? The Buccaneers?
Tom Brady? Mahomes? Really? This entire NFL Football Season?
We get it, you got nothing else. “America’s past time.”
NFL Football and the Super Bowl is the only thing. National Holiday.
You’ll probably go apesh*t for The Weekend (without an “e”) on Monday….
AND THEY’RE HAVING IT IN FLORIDA INSTEAD OF CALIFORNIA.
And they’re going to have fans in the stands. No worries about COVID-19.
The $uper Bowl (NFL Football) is all about the $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$.
Sports wagering is legal now, so there’s that too. Public Health be damned.
THE TEAM OWNERS, THE CORPORATIONS, SPONSORS, NETWORKS,
AND ADVERTISERS MADE BILLIONS DURING THE PANDEMIC.
(Some teams 
even got Government Pandemic Grants and Loans)


Peyton coffee

Peyton Manning was the first finalist named by the Pro Football Hall of Fame for 2021, and there is no doubt he’ll be a first-ballot Hall-of-Famer in August. They’ll make the official announcement on Saturday at the NFL Honors, before the Super Bowl on Sunday. And he’ll enter the Hall of Fame as both a Colt and Bronco. Manning is the only starting QB in NFL history to win the Super Bowl with two different teams. Manning led Denver to the playoffs in all four seasons as the Broncos’ QB during his 18 year career. When Manning retired in 2016, he held NFL records with 71940 career passing yards, 539 career passing TDs, and 13 consecutive seasons with at least 25 passing TDs. During Manning’s 2013 MVP season, he threw 55 touchdown passes for 5477 yards, breaking both NFL records!

SUNDAY! SUNDAY! SUPER BOWL 55!
Kickoff at 3:30pm PST
Live from Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida
(How did the Tampa Bay Buccaneers get Home Field advantage?)
First time the Super Bowl is being played in one of the team’s hometown.
And because of COVID-19, the Chiefs couldn’t travel until Friday?
It seems like an unfair advantage for Tom Brady to have…. oh well.
Unknown
Watch the game: CBS, NFL Network, ESPN Deportes,
NFL Channel, CBSSports.com and the CBSSports App

Kansas City Chiefs (14-2) AFC (Patrick Mahomes QB)
30123
Tampa Bay Buccaneers (11-5) NFC (F*CK TOM BRADY!)
5228

The Chief are the better team, Tom Brady is old.
But Tom Brady and Gronkowski have experience playing in the big game.
And the Super Bowl is a different kind of rookie “pressure” situation,
so it will all hinge on Mahomes adjusting and playing his best game.
AND if “THE FIX IS IN” as we discussed in our FOOTBALL PICKS.

The Chiefs are still favored to win, and the point spread is now -3.0
The Over/Under is now 56

Science! This kid is smart!

“Mask Up America” is President Joe Biden’s “100 Day Masking Challenge”

“Face masks help prevent people who have COVID-19, including those who are pre-symptomatic or asymptomatic, from spreading the virus to others. Masks are most likely to reduce the spread of COVID-19 when they are widely used by people in public settings. Wide use of masks especially helps protect those at higher risk of severe illness from COVID-19 as well as workers who frequently come into close contact with other people (e.g., in airports, seaports or other docks, bus terminals, and train stations). Using masks along with other preventive measures, including social distancing, frequent hand hygiene, and cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched surfaces, is one of the most effective strategies available for reducing COVID-19 transmission.” – CDC

THE MASK GOES OVER YOUR NOSE!
YOUR NOSE AND MOUTH ARE CONNECTED!
COVER YOUR NOSE AND MOUTH!


WASH YOUR HANDS! with Anti-Bacterial Soap!

3 – FACE – Don’t touch it! Don’t touch your eyes, nose or mouth!
4 – SPACE – SOCIAL DISTANCE! Keep your distance (6 feet or more)
5 – HOME – STAY HOME if you can! (or if it’s mandatory)

REMEMBER to DISINFECT and SANITIZE frequently-touched surfaces like:

And there’s a lot of stuff to do around the house that we didn’t do this week.

Keep truckin’, like the doo-dah man

Happy birthday President Barack Obama! He didn’t try to kill us.

The painters came early and finished the job (for real) with a few touch-ups today. The house looks very nice with a fresh coat of paint and the new front landscape.

MARCH-APRIL-MAY-JUNE-JULY-AUGUST! 156000+ US DEATHS and no Federal testing, tracking, containment, or plan. “Children must go Back-To-School” will be a bigger disaster than “we must reopen businesses”. There is no way to contain the virus or “slow the spread in 15 days”, we need a nationwide Quarantine and shutdown immediately, because the crisis will be even worse in two weeks.

EVERYTHING TRUMP SAYS IS A LIE! – EVERYTHING TRUMP SAYS IS A LIE! –
EVERYTHING TRUMP SAYS IS A LIE! – EVERYTHING TRUMP SAYS IS A LIE! –
EVERYTHING TRUMP SAYS IS A LIE! – EVERYTHING TRUMP SAYS IS A LIE!

TRUMP IS LYING! HE LIES EVERYDAY!
TRUMP DID NOT BAN TRAVEL FROM CHINA IN TIME!
TRUMP DID NOT BAN TRAVEL FROM EUROPE IN TIME!
NO ACTION WAS TAKEN TO CONTAIN THE CRUISE SHIPS!
THE OUTBREAK WAS MISHANDLED FROM THE START!
TRUMP AND THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT FAILED!
THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT TOLD PEOPLE NOT TO WEAR MASKS!
(Because there weren’t enough masks stockpiled)
TRUMP FIRED THE PANDEMIC RESPONSE TEAM!
TRUMP CANCELLED CONTRACTS FOR VENTILATORS!
(Then they overpaid for new emergency ventilator contracts)
TRUMP is running a PUMP AND DUMP scam with Hydroxycloroquine!

SHUT THE F*CK UP DONNY! SHUT THE F*CK UP DONNY!
SHUT THE F*CK UP DONNY! SHUT THE F*CK UP DONNY!

Nothing has changed since DAY ONE,
this virus will kill you and your family!
And we still need a FULL QUARANTINE to stop the spread!
In two weeks the number of cases and deaths will double again!

WE POSTED THIS TRAVEL ALERT AT THE END OF FEBRUARY!>

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

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

CORONAVIRUS CASES STILL SPIKING ACROSS THE UNITED STATES!
CHILDREN CAN GET INFECTED AND THEY INFECT OTHER PEOPLE!

156000+ US CITIZENS ARE DEAD!
ONE HUNDRED FIFTY-SIX THOUSAND PEOPLE ARE DEAD!
A TOTAL FAILURE BY TRUMP AND THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT
TO PREVENT THIS CRISIS AND CONTAIN THE VIRUS!

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

As of August 4, 2020:
STILL NO FEDERAL PLAN FOR TESTING/TRACKING!
195610+ Reported Cases and 4755+ Deaths in Los Angeles County 

7875+ Reported Cases and 77 Reported Deaths in Ventura County
38065+ Reported Cases and 650+ Deaths in Orange County
34010+ Reported Cases and 475+ Deaths in San Bernandino County
38485+ Reported Cases and 735+ Deaths in Riverside County

525000+ Reported Cases and 9620+ Deaths in California
4850000+ Reported Cases and 159000+ Deaths in the United States
(and all these numbers are most likely under-reported!)

Had a dentist appointment scheduled for first thing this morning, after rescheduling two or three times because of the CoronaVirus, and we called and cancelled it!
The anxiety! Too much stress. We haven’t been sleeping much and we didn’t sleep at all last night and the anxiety grew until morning. We were going to go, but NO.
Too scary. We haven’t been around people for any length of time since the first week of March, and the thought of having to be in the chair with other people in the room is very unsettling – AND WE 100% TRUST OUR DENTIST AND HIS STAFF! So we didn’t go and we feel shame, but the CoronaVirus is still spreading here in Los Angeles and there’s no way to know who has it and we don’t want it. So we’ll STAYTHEFUCKHOME today.

And the housekeeper came this morning. So there’s another thing to worry about as we hole up in the Home Office with the dogs until she’s done. She is “family” but we are thinking about our personal bubble and we don’t want her in it. The RISK OF DEATH OR SERIOUS PROLONGED/LONG-TERM ILLNESS OUTWEIGHS ANY BENEFIT OF HAVING THE HOUSE CLEANED! We can keep it clean for ourself until there’s a vaccine.

Cold pizza for breakfast/lunch. Trash day. Trash trucks.
The dogs got fed and they are chillin’ all together in the other room. Happy dogs!
Construction continues across the street. NOISE and workmen on the street everyday.
We just couldn’t stomach the news today, so we haven’t watched or listened to any.

On The Menu: Ordered Cuban food – garlic chicken and onions, white rice, black beans, plantains and an iced espresso

NOTE: Sorry, not sorry. This week Blog Post was built on Sunday and we added a few things Mon-Tues-Wed, but then we filled it all in on Thursday afternoon. There was a lot of “not news” between the AXIOS interview fallout and today’s legal filings against the NRA in New York. School re-opening is the dumbest strategy we can imagine. Re-opening businesses caused a massive spike in reported cases, so now let’s expose the children too. There is an amazing amount of distraction and misdirection happening, so be careful out there.

Groundhog Day is also February 2nd.
Punxsutawny Phil, the Groundhog and
The Punxsutawny Groundhog Club est. 1887
logo-pgc
“A popular tradition in the United States, Groundhog Day is also a legend that traverses centuries, its origins clouded in the mists of time with ethnic cultures and animals awakening on specific dates. Myths such as this tie our present to the distant past when nature did, indeed, influence our lives. It is the day that the Groundhog comes out of his hole after a long winter sleep to look for his shadow. If he sees it, he regards it as an omen of six more weeks of bad weather and returns to his hole. If the day is cloudy and, hence, shadowless, he takes it as a sign of spring and stays above ground.”

“Punxsutawney Phil’s prognostications have drawn the attention and praise of thousands of his faithful followers who now flock to Gobblers Knob each year from around the world.”
– from The Punxsutawny Groundhog Club website

UPDATE: Sunday, February 2, 2020, 0730am PST – Groundhog Day!
Punxatawny Phil did not see his shadow. Early Spring predicted!

The Chiefs are slight favorites over the 49ers KC -1.5
The Chiefs Money Line: Kansas City -122, San Francisco +101
The Over/Under is currently 54.5

PARTY! PARTY! PARTY!

NOTE: Face it, you don’t care about either team this year, so it’s all about
THE SUPER BOWL PARTY, the food, drink, and the Commercials, right?

7421e3c3a262ffe55573c66f7bd7e486

Drinking Rules for Super Bowl 54:
Take a sip of beer every time the broadcasters mention the Chiefs haven’t been to the Super Bowl in 50 years and every time they show Chiefs fans doing a tomahawk chop.
Take a sip every time they mention Colin Kaepernick, the controversial former San Francisco Quarterback.
Take a sip of beer. whenever the broadcasters mention that Chiefs Quarterback Mahomes’ dad, Pat Mahomes, once pitched for the New York Mets and every time the broadcasters mention Coach Andy Reid’s poor clock management.
Take a sip every time a well known celebrity or Jerry Rice appears on camera.
Take a sip anytime they show Joe Montana, or mention him playing for both teams.
Take a sip when Kansas City tight end Travis Kelce does his signature “Magic Mike” dance when he scores a touchdown.
Take a sip every time the broadcast shows an aerial view of South Beach.
Do a shot when Pitbull does his “surprise” cameo during the halftime show.
STOP DRINKING IF YOU FEEL DRUNK!

POSTING THIS ON FRIDAY, JANUARY 31st at 12:05am.

Our predictions for the Big Game:
(we are not liable for any gambling losses,
this is not an actual “tip” or “tout” site. For amusement only!)
*Kansas City will win. Final score 27-20, so take the Under.*
And always take “HEADS” in the coin toss.
Most of all just have fun and be safe!

UPDATE: February 2, 2020 1730pm (Halftime)
Well, the Over/Under shifted to my final score prediction!
And we’re tied at 10-10 at the Half.
Screen Shot 2020-02-02 at 17.28.49

UPDATE: February 2, 2020 2010pm (Game Over!)
Final Score: San Francisco 20 – Kansas City 31
Screen Shot 2020-02-02 at 20.10.19

Screen Shot 2020-02-02 at 20.11.22

NOTE: At the time we predicted the Under score the Over/Under line was 53.5
We would have won the Under Bet and our prediction KC 27 – SF 20 was pretty close!

“El Zono Finale.”

NOTE: “Where The Buffalo Roam” with Bill Murray and Peter Boyle is a classic film and a Super Bowl viewing must! Try to find it with the original music soundtrack.

NOTE: We will continue to add and update this Blog Post
before, during and after the Super Bowl in Miami on Sunday!

On The Menu:
Friday evening, we made a big pot of thick and extra spicy chili for Sunday.
(we are also defrosting chicken wings, but we won’t cook them until Gameday)

83629963_3404925629533979_7741998835341197312_o

Start with a big pot of thick and extra spicy chili

Saturday evening, we cut up a pineapple and a watermelon, and we made a fruit infused lemonade (used fresh lemons right off the tree). We went to the market and bought food and supplies for the party: chips, hummus, dill pickles, celery, Persian cucumbers, raspberries, “beverages” and mixers, peanut M&Ms, ice cream and more.

Sunday morning we cut up the veggies, made some fresh guacamole (our recipe is in a previous Blog Post) and then we cooked up the hot wings.

Buffalo Hot Wings!
Ingredients:
Chicken wings (trimmed and cut)
1 cup all purpose flour
3 eggs
1/3 cup water
1 stick of Butter
1 bottle of Frank’s Red Hot sauce
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp salt
dash(es) Tabasco
dash(es) Worcestershire sauce
Vegetable oil (for frying)
Instructions:
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Heat 2″- 3″ of vegetable oil to 400 degrees in heavy pot.
Whisk flour, eggs, 6 oz of Frank’s Red Hot sauce, a couple dashes of Tabasco and Worchestershire sauce, garlic, and black pepper in a large bowl until it makes a batter.
Salt the chicken wings and add them to the bowl, Coat them thoroughly with batter.
Fry the chicken wings in hot oil for 5-7 minutes until cooked golden brown.
Remove the chicken wings from oil and drain on paper towels.
Melt butter in a saucepan on the stove, then add 6 oz of Frank’s Red Hot sauce, a dash of Tabasco and Worcestershire sauce and simmer quickly.
Place chicken wings in oven safe dish (PYREX or a metal pan) and cover them with sauce.
Bake in oven for 15 minutes. Remove and coat with heated sauce again.

“Still not weird enough for me.”

Peyton coffee

“Everybody is going to be excited to play in a Super Bowl. When you still enjoy the preparation and the work part of it, I think you ought to be still doing that. I think as soon as I stop enjoying it, if I can’t produce, if I can’t help a team, that’s when I will stop playing.” – Peyton Manning

The Pregame Show was a NFL Football masterpiece!

PREMATURE CELEBRATION

A short RANT about the PREMATURE CELEBRATION:
This just needs to stop. The End Zone Exhibitionism should be penalized!
No TD dances! No group selfies! None of this “Jerk-Off” behavior!
How is this not “TAUNTING” the other team? It’s just Poor Sportsmanship!

“I’m going to Walt Disney World!” Super Bowl and NFL League MVP!

Big Congratulation to 24 year old Chiefs’ QB Patrick Mahomes! He’s the Super Bowl MVP and the NFL League MVP (and the youngest player to ever win those awards) along with being the holder of a bunch of other new football records. He made some “rookie mistakes” during the game, but he played like a Champion and made the BIG PLAYS when he had to and led Kansas City to victory.

DON’T DRINK AND DRIVE!
CALL A RIDE AND GET HOME ALIVE!



We had a weird. thought today (Friday) as the GOP Senate voted against witnesses and documents (i.e. evidence) in the Impeachment Trial of Donald Trump.
What if there’s a “false flag” event at the Super Bowl? Hmmm. Conspiracy theory much?

And don’t forget who controls what you see, hear and read:

33204727_10216126880910249_8228038796508135424_n

or just Watch the Puppy Bowl on the AnimalPlanet channel!
Team Fluff vs. Team Ruff: 96 puppies from 61 animal shelters and rescue organizations across the United States will compete, the highest number of puppies ever, making it the “biggest and most epic game in Puppy Bowl history,”
And all the puppies are available for adoption at www.animalplanet.com

UPDATE: February 4, 2020 – Best Story of the Super Bowl!
Kelly Kay Green, 27, a Los Angeles Instagram model, who has more than 275,000 followers on her “Kelly Kay” Instagram page, tried to get on the field during Super Bowl LIV in Miami and was arrested on a trespassing charge and taken into custody. Green jumped over the northwest rail and onto the field in a restricted area. “Social media showed security and police taking her into custody near one of the end zones and leading her off the field. At one point, she appeared to lift off the back of her dress as she walked with her hands handcuffed behind her.” She was booked and later released on a $1000 bond.

SHARING THIS FROM OUR FRIEND:
“President Numbnuts strikes again!!!
Yes, he posted this then deleted it.

They gathered for the feast
They stab it with their steely knives,
But they just can’t kill the beast”

Burning Man – Camp Envy 2019

It was THE DOG DAYS OF SUMMER here in Los Angeles. HOT! HOT! HOT!
And it continues to be hot into September.
Today it was only 90 degrees in the San Fernando Valley.
At least we don’t have Hurricane Dorian to contend with!

And on an interesting note, we can see the stats for this Blog, and we enjoy seeing where our readers are located (when they’re not pirating our pictures). So here’s the details for the last four days, WE ARE WORLDWIDE!>

Okay, we’re posting this at last. Watch for our future past due Blog Posts: Burning Man, Las Vegas, Ashland Road Trip, and more…. Thanks for playing!

Super Bowl 53 in Atlanta, Georgia

rams_whitebg_70x70Los Angeles Rams

patriots_whitebg_70x70New England Patriots

CURRENT ODDS: The Patriots are favored by 2-1/2 points, with an Over-Under of 56.5

The Patriots have not scored a touchdown in the first quarter in 8 previous Super Bowl appearances! New England has only scored 3 first-quarter points in the 8 previous Super Bowl games! They have been shut out in the first-quarter every Super Bowl except for last year against the Philadelphia Eagles, when they kicked a field goal.

C.J. Anderson, the Rams star Runningback, has an old tendency to fumble under pressure. Jared Goff is the youngest Quarterback to play in the big game. Will “Super Bowl Nerves” be a major factor in the Rams’ game play?

NOTE: This game is billed as a rematch of Super Bowl XXXVI, played in 2002.
First-year quarterback Tom Brady and the New England Patriots upset the St. Louis Rams quarterbacked by Kurt Warner 20-17 at the Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Colin Kaepernick Takes A Knee!

1) Take A Knee protest = Cops please stop killing unarmed African Americans,
2) Racist NFL owners won’t hire Colin Kaepernick as QB for starting the protest,
3) Racist propaganda targeting Colin Kaepernick hits the internet,
4) Nike hires Colin Kaepernick and angry racists burn Nike merchandise
Trump condemned Colin Kaepernick and other players joining the protest, incorrectly claiming they are protesting the national anthem and the American flag…
the discussion is over. The persecution is RACIST. The belittling of an African-American sports figure for political gain based in hatred is what this is about. Dividing the country is what this is about. Hate for a person of color is what this is about. That’s all.
FU LYIN’ DONNY!

“THE FIX IS IN!” Rams-Saints Pass Interference “No-Call”
“whenever officiating is part of any kind of discussion post-game, it’s never a good outcome for us.” ~ NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell (10 days after the game)

Rams – Saints Pass Interference “No-Call” on January 20, 2019

The NFL’s Senior VP of Officiating Al Riveron spoke to New Orleans Saints Coach Sean Payton after the game and said that pass interference should have been called against Rams’ defenseman Nickell Robey-Coleman for the early hit on Saints’ receiver Tommylee Lewis. Robey-Coleman was fined for an illegal hit, but Commissioner Roger Goodell did not overturn the result of the game or order all or part of the game to be replayed.

“Listen, we understand the frustration of the fans. I’ve talked to coach Payton. The team, the players, we understand the frustration they feel right now, and we certainly want to address that” ~ NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell (10 days after the game)

Tom Brady is 41 years old. Jared Goff is 24 years old. If the Patriots win, Brady will become the oldest quarterback to win a Super Bowl, a record currently held by Peyton Manning (he was 39 in 2016 when the Denver Broncos beat the Carolina Panthers).

 

“He became a man the day of the greatest game he ever played. Everything he ever knew about common decency and morality he learned that day in December from Alan “The Horse” Ameche; and today in the Superbowl he would earn his wings. The crowd had assembled; a crowd of America’s elite. Toyata salesmen from all around the country—orientals and even those suspected of being orientals—stacked on the thirty yard line watching him sweat and wipe caked blood from his face. The Gallow brothers—Ernest and Julio—party guys who had skinned a few Mexicans and forced them to carry them on their shoulders down to the pre-game tailgate parties at the colosseum. The Pepsi and Coca Cola bottlers of America—Coke adds life; It’s the real thing—bombarded by missiles; flying flaming matchbook covers. The waterheads from General Motors up in the top seats where they belong; getting the worst of the pollution. All sorts of weird motherf*ckers were at the game.”

Gladys Knight performed the national anthem beautifully at Super Bowl 53. The seven-time Grammy Award winner and Atlanta native is best known for her hits “Midnight Train to Georgia” and “That’s What Friends are For”. There were rumors that she might be joined by The Pips, but that didn’t happen.

2019 Halftime Show: Maroon 5 w/guests Travis Scott and Big Boi (TOTALLY SUCKED!) MORE CONTROVERSY! The Colin Kaepernick Scandal causes big name artists to say NO. Maroon 5 is targeted for saying yes. Just remember, it’s all about the MONEY.

GO RAMS!

COIN TOSS: Heads or Tails?
The Patriots call “Heads”, the Rev. King flips the coin, and it lands “TAILS”.
The Rams win the coin toss. They choose to defer and kick off to the Patriots.

We made a pot of chili in the morning and had some for breakfast. Then we went to the market and bought our party supplies. We came home and prepped the food and then enjoyed the pre-game telecast and Super Bowl Sunday pre-party food and fun.

 

The game was really boring. The Patriots led 3-0 at halftime. The halftime show was terrible. The commercials were pretty bad, with only a couple of exceptions.
Not much to say about the commentary or pre-show. (F*ck Trump and his soft interview)
CBS’s visual coverage of the game was good. They had lots of cameras, effects, and no technical difficulties to speak of, but again the game was really boring.

The Rams were out-coached and out-played, but managed to stay in the game until the 4th quarter, when the Patriots finally scored a touchdown and then sealed the win with a an interception and field goal. FINAL SCORE: Patriots 13, Rams 3 (B-O-R-I-N-G)

Sad ending for a sad football season, marred by racial and political issues, and too many BAD F*CKING CALLS AND “NO CALLS” by the officials. The recent rule changes have hurt the game and the judgement calls by the referees have raised a lot of questions…..

Would it have been a better game if the Patriots beat the New Orleans Saints?

“Super Sunday. Dawn. My recollections of the last twelve hours are very dim. All that I know for certain is that shortly after I checked in, two third-world drug abusers disguised as hotel employees forced their way into my room; ransacked it, drank all my liquor, did all my drugs, stole my dinner. If the security precautions aren’t beefed up at this hotel; I’m looking for safer accommodations. It’s a sad state of affairs when this reporter has to go heavily armed to breakfast.”

“We also know our officials are human, we also know that they’re officiating a game that moves very quickly and have to make snap decisions under difficult circumstances,” he said. “And they’re not going to get it every time. As I say, they’re human.”
~ NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell (10 days after the game)

THE FIX IS IN! (again)
Penalties called against the Rams: 12
Penalties called against the Patriots: 3
TOO MANY “NO CALLS!” Holding much? The Patriots 4th quarter Touchdown drive:

Sunday! Sunday! The NFL Football Championships! Two Winners go to the Super Bowl.

Kansas City Chiefs v. New England Patriots – Los Angeles Rams v. New Orleans Saints

As a kid, I watched Pat Haden, Roman Gabriel & Joe Namath quarterback for the Rams at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. And after 22 years without a local football team, three years ago, the Rams came back! And then two years ago the San Diego Chargers announced they would be relocating to Los Angeles. NOW THE CHAMPIONSHIP AND THE SUPER BOWL ARE ONLY ONE GAME AWAY! GO RAMS!
12495204_1293007674059129_6576725391754201179_n

The Rams Win in Overtime is SWEET!
Pulling victory from the jaws of defeat, a lucky interception and a long field goal,
the Los Angeles Rams are going to the Super Bowl! GO RAMS!
Los Angeles Rams 26
– New Orleans Saints 23 (Final – Overtime)
NOTE: YES, the refs blew the pass interference call that would have changed the game.

And the New England Patriots also win in overtime, with a little help from the refs….
New England Patriots 37 – Kansas City Chiefs 31 (Final- Overtime)
NOTE: WE HATE CHEATIN’ TOM BRADY AND THE PATRIOTS.

Chinese New Year 2019 is February 3rd-4th in the USA!
Happy Year of the Yin Brown Female Earth Pig!
newyear-pig300

The Pig is the twelfth of the Chinese zodiac animals. According to myth, the Jade Emperor decided the zodiac by the order in which each animal arrived to a party. The Pig was late because he overslept, arrived last and ended up number twelve.

The Pig is yin. The Pig is associated with the Earth element and the hours 9–11 at night.
Pigs are a symbol of wealth. Fat faces and big ears are also signs of good fortune.

And Santa’s  job is done for the year. He’ll be back to judging you next week.

GOOD KHARMA for 2018:
Flooding in Montecito, California, near Santa Barbara, forced family to evacuate. They and their little dog were our houseguests for three weeks in January and February. They had previously evacuated during the Thomas Fire and also stayed with us then.

And the Not So Good News:
On January 13, an early morning ballistic missile alert was sent across Hawaii in error, and revoked after 38 minutes, prompting changes to the warning system.
On January 25, the “Doomsday clock” was moved by 30 seconds to 2 minutes to midnight by Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists,  now the closest since the 1950s.

Lee Weisel RIP

In April we had a “Bilbo Baggins” party for my father Lee Weisel (now of blessed memory) at Beasy’s on the Creek in Ashland, Oregon. He was suffering from Parkinson’s disease and other associated illnesses and passed in May. It was a swell party and good time was had by everyone!

We made three hard road trips from Los Angeles to Ashland and back between January and June. The first to take care of him, the second for the party and the third for the funeral. Rest in Peace Dad.

THE RED SOX WIN THE SERIES!
And it’s all over now, Dodger Blue. They suckered you in again and took your money again. You bought your hats, jerseys, bobbleheads and other blue merch. You don’t get to watch the game on TV (FU TWC), and how much did you spend on tickets, parking and overpriced concessions to see them play at Chavez Ravine? And now when it counts, they fold like a bad poker hand and let you down again. But, maybe next year…..

2018 was a Big Year for Natural Disasters!
2017 was a record year in the United Sates for cost of natural disasters: $306 billion
2018 will break that record.

VOLCANOES!
The Kilauea Volcano on Hawaii’s Big Island has been active for 35 years and this year the eruption in May-June-July destroyed more than 700 homes and impacted the tourism industry. Kilauea continues to erupt at the summit and from the Puʻu ʻOʻo vent in the East Rift Zone, producing lava that flows to the ocean.
The Anak Krakakau volcano in Indonesia triggered a tsunami on Saturday, December 22, and killed more than 400 people. Airplane flights have been rerouted and the crater’s status was just raised to high alert, the second-highest level.
The Fuego volcano’s sudden eruption in southern Guatemala on June 3 killed 194 people and more than 230 people are still missing. ~21000 acres of farmland was also destroyed.
And volcanoes also caused fires, floods, smaller tsunamis and earthquakes.

HURRICANES!
The 2018 Atlantic hurricane season was an above-average and damaging Atlantic hurricane season with 15 named storms with 2 major hurricanes Category 3+: Florence and Michael. 154 people died and the cost of damages exceeded USD$33.3 billion (2018).

NOTE: Puerto Rico has still not recovered from Hurricane Maria in September of 2017. 4645 people died (as per a Harvard study in May) and it caused over $43 billion in economic losses.

Puerto Rican Lives Matter Too!

FLOODS!
Flooding was a major problem around the world in 2018. North America, Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Australia, and South America all experienced record floods this year.

FIRESTORMS!

Big fires in California and Oregon this year: The Woolsey Fire in Thousand Oaks, the Camp Fire in Northern California (the deadliest and most destructive fire in California history killed 86 people), the Mendocino Complex Fire in July was California’s largest fire by burned area ever (and it destroyed nearly half a million acres), the Thomas Fire in Ventura County (December 2017), and the Crater Lake and other adjacent Oregon fires this summer broke all records. Wildfires also killed more than 70 people in Greece and following the longest sustained drought on record, more than 50 fires in the Swedish Arctic Circle burned uncontrollably in July.

Egg Nog!

Twas the day before Christmas, and all through the study, not a creature was stirring except my little buddy. The cell phones were charging by the desktop hard drive, with high hopes that AmazonPrime would arrive. No children, just dogs asleep on the bed, waiting for dinner and soon to be fed. And me in pajamas, awake from a nap, drinking my coffee and writing this crap… Happy Christmas Eve! (just a little poem I wrote)

And still waiting for winter
A new year arrives

Eat, Drink and Be Happy. We’re all gonna die.

Dad left us in May. And our old friends John “Wheels” Wheeler and Joreth Toropov left the party early this year too. John tragically in July and Joreth suddenly in October. Both left us way too soon. May the Four Winds blow them safely home.

And WE REMEMBER THE VICTIMS OF MASS MURDER in 2018. Never forget.

On February 14th, 17 people were killed and 17 injured in a shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. A shooting at Santa Fe High School in Houston, Texas killed 10 people, and wounded 13 more on May 18th. 11 people were murdered (including Holocaust survivors) in an anti-Semetic “hate crime” on the Tree of Life Jewish Temple in Pittsburgh on Saturday, October 27th. The deadliest attack on the Jewish community in the United States’ history.

And the mass shooting at the Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks killed 12 people and the gunman, and injured at least 10 more on November 7th. Ventura County Sheriff Sergeant Ron Helus was killed by CHP friendly fire during the attack.

The Borderline Bar & Grill Victims

We Remember. “May their memory be a blessing!”

NOTE: There were many other “Shootings in 2018” with multiple victims, and these are just the two of the worst and most recent Mass Murders in the United States. So, THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS for the Victim’s friends and families and BUSINESS AS USUAL for the GOP Republicans, the NRA, the Gun Manufacturers and Retailers.

But, we did gain a new family member. And he’s such a good boy!
