LEO has the most fundamental relationship with FIRE.
When confronted with challenges,
fire’s influence becomes obvious.
While others quit in the face of adversity,

LEOs are inspired by burning passion and enthusiasm.
Embrace fire’s positive qualities,
and always work towards achieving the goal.
Be aware of fire’s negative influence,
it can stir impatience and impulsivity.

The fire person has leadership qualities, dynamic passion,
and is decisive, self-confident, positive, and assertive.
The direction associated with Fire is South, and the season is summer,
which makes it the fixed element for the animal signs Snake and Horse

The Snake:
Snake_(Chinese_characters)

Fire (Chinese: ; pinyin: huǒ) is the prosper of the matter,
or the matter’s prosperity stage, the second of the Wu Xing, the Five Phases.

In the regenerative cycle of Wu Xing, wood engenders Fire
as fire is generated by rubbing together two pieces of wood
and it must be fueled by burning wood;
Fire begets earth as fire reduces everything to ashes,
which become a part of the earth again.
In the conquest cycle, water overcomes Fire
as nothing will put out a fire as quickly as water. 
Fire overcomes metal as it can only be melted and forged by flame or heat.

Fire is yang in character. Its motion is upward and its energy is convective.

Fire is associated with the positive emotion of joy
and the negative emotion of hate.

Fire is associated with Summer, the South, the planet Mars and The Sun ,
the color red (associated with extreme luck), hot weather, daylight,
and the Vermilion Bird (Zhu Que)

Organs associated with the Fire element are the Heart (yin)
and small intestine (yang), the tongue and the body’s pulse.

“There’s a fire in my belly…. but it might just be supper.”

Fire attributes are considered to be dynamism, strength, and persistence;
however, it is also connected to restlessness.
The fire element provides warmth, enthusiasm, and creativity;
however, an excess of it can bring aggression, impatience, and impulsive behavior.
In the same way, fire provides heat and warmth; however, an excess can also burn.

“Burn like Fire! Burn like Fire in Cairo!”

The Fire Knife Dance began in the ancient Polynesian demonstration of ailao,
a ceremonial performance of the Samoan warrior’s display of strength with a war club.
Fire dancing aka “poi spinning” began in the Maori’s war tradition in New Zealand.

It’s a Hawaiian Luau Tradition!

Also called fire spinning, fire performance, fire twirling or fire manipulation.
Fire performance typically involves equipment or other objects
made with one or more wicks which are designed to sustain
a large enough flame to create a visual effect.

We woke up and didn’t really get back to sleep. And now we’re awake.

9:25am: We made a double iced espresso.
And it’s raining outside! Well, drizzling or sprinkling.
WATER IS FALLING FROM THE SKY! And some of it is reaching the ground.

10:50am: Well, it stopped “raining” but it’s still gray out.
Reminds us of a Marin County Summer morning, the color, the temp, the humidity.
We took the dog outside. We played with the dog. We’re chillin’ on Tuesday.

12:30pm: We took a short unplanned nap with the dog…. and now we’re up again.
We took the dog outside. And we took the dog outside again.

The Emmy Nominations were announced today in Hollywood.

4:30pm: We took a shower.

6:00pm: We have company! Real live people in the house today.
Family visiting from a FOREIGN COUNTRY! Unmasked and personal!
Hugs, handshakes, hor d’oeuvres…. and we’re going to have dinner.
A LITTLE TOO WEIRD. They are tested and vaccinated, but it’s weird.
Our step-sister and her husband and children are here.
They are from the Czech Republic.
And they’re driving to San Francisco tomorrow. Not what we would do….
We advised them to take the 101 north, and not Interstate 5, or Highway 1,
because of the Central Valley heat, the scenery and nice places to stop on US 101,
and the truck traffic on the 5 freeway and tourist traffic on Highway 1.

US 101 will take you through the city of San Francisco and across
the Golden Gate Bridge, through Marin County, and all the way to Oregon.

8:20pm: Well my step-sister’s son is 12 and he can shred on the guitar.
Kid is jammin’ tunes on an acoustic Gibson, but he says he plays electric.
We bought him a new Ibanez electric guitar with all the bells and whistles.
He says he plays by ear when we recommend a YouTube site: JDarks
with guitar tabs and instruction.
Would love to have him do “reaction vids” as he discovers new music!

9:25pm: We sat him down and showed him a couple “old school” YouTube vids.
Then they served the ice cream and we were done with the music lesson.
And so we enjoyed some ice cream for dessert too.
We gave them some travel tips for their trip to San Francisco.
And they just left the house. It was fun to see them and sort of play uncle….
(we like kids when we can give them back) and it’s been three years.

“San Francisco’s Cable Cars Will Be Free to Ride When They Come Back in August”
So they won’t be riding the cable cars this week. They were closed for the pandemic.
But they announced the return of the Cable Cars today, and they’ll be FREE for a month.

California’s Governor Gavin Newsom, who is now being recalled,
announced all kinds of good stuff today: Rent subsidies. Grants for small business.
All kinds of other money for people. Hallelujah!

10:29pm: And all is quiet now. Everyone is gone and the dogs are napping.

It’s a beautiful day out…. FUCKIN’ HOT already at 11:00am.
And it’s “EARTHQUAKE WEATHER” and there’s a weird light today.
So, we have sh*t to do. Lot’s of sh*t to do. And we need a PLAN.
Is the CoronaVirus Pandemic ever going to end? We are still blogging.
Some people are acting like it’s done. Some like it never happened.
WAKE UP MOTHERF*CKERS! It’s not over. This virus is a weapon.
It didn’t come from bats and a Chinese open-air market….
IT WAS RELEASED FROM THE WEAPONS LAB DOWN THE STREET.
But don’t quote us yet…. they still want you to believe the lies.

NOTE: A magnitude 6.0 earthquake struck Little Antelope Valley,
California,
near the Nevada border at 3:49pm local time on July 8, 2021.

5:55pm: We took a nap. We watched TV and surfed the interweb.
We published our “Dandelions” Blog Post. We worked on other stuff.
The dogs went outside. The dogs got fed. The dogs went outside.
We listened to some podcasts this afternoon. We made some dinner.

On The Menu: We had to use the thin-cut top sirloin steak in the fridge.
And we had fresh ginger leftover from sushi last night,

John McAfee RIP…. Jeffrey Epstein did not kill himself.
McAfee “committed suicide” in a Spanish prison? REALLY?
Is it a conspiracy theory if the victim predicts his own death?
NOTE: It already appears that the mainstream media is just going to bury the story.
DO YOU TRUST THE US GOVERNMENT TO TELL YOU THE TRUTH?

Was he an “Enemy of the State” or did he just know too much about certain people?
And what about Jeffrey Epstein? And the Deutsche Bank Banker? Suicides? Really?


Friday, June 25, 2021 – It’s the Last Friday of the Month!

It’s Anthony Bourdain Day! Today would have been his 65th birthday. The celebrity chef, author, world traveler, and TV personality killed himself on June 8, 2018.

On this day in 1876, Lieutenant Colonel George Armstrong Custer FAILED.
The 7th United States Cavalry was defeated by Sioux and Cheyenne Warriors at the Battle of the Little Bighorn in the Montana Territory (aka “Custer’s Last Stand”).
There were 268 dead and 55 severely wounded U.S. soldiers (and others) when the battle was over.

4:55am: It’s Friday morning! Have a nice day.
smiley 11
It’s the weekend.
Not that anything is any different from the rest of the week.
It’s going to be HOT here, maybe 100 degrees on Sunday.

7:35am: And we took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs. We took the dogs outside.

Remember that cow that went missing after they escaped from the slaughterhouse?
They found it yesterday morning in Whittier Narrows park.
OKAY, WTF? Diane Warren (Hollywood Elite) is going to pay to send it to a sanctuary.
And a bunch of a**holes are now protesting outside the meatpacking plant,
because they want the other 38 cows to be “pardoned” instead of becoming steaks.
Seriously, fuciking cows and people protesting meat are big news in Los Angeles……..
And MORE Britney Spears court news…

RECORD HEAT! EXTEME DROUGHT! “We’re having a heat wave.”

Be glad you’re not in southern Oregon or the Pacific Northwest this week!
But seriously, it’s going to be dangerously HOY in a lot of places. so STAY COOL!
Take care of your family, friends, and pets. Young and elderly people are most at risk.

NOTE: We got dressed and drove to the restaurant.
We talked to the staff (our friends) at the restaurant and drove home.
We ate dinner while watching LIVE MUSIC on the desktop.

There was a pursuit that ended when the guy hit the barrier between the carpool lane and the freeway head-on at high speed. He destroyed the truck in a spectacular wreck, spun out, rolled it, and landed in the carpool lanes. Then he crawled out of the wreckage (unhurt) and surrendered to the Highway Patrol. Yeah Saturday Night!

And now back to SUNDAY! SUNDAY! SUNDAY!

12:10am: And we fell asleep after dinner…. and woke up around 10:00pm.
We took the dog outside. And now we’re back in the Home Office.

5:15am: We slept a little. We woke up around 4:00am.
We took the dog outside and made a cup of espresso.

NATIONAL SUNGLASSES DAY!

207544617_10159567442758054_6119273535984369204_n

I study nuclear science, I love my classes
I got a crazy teacher, he wears dark glasses
Things are going great, and they’re only getting better
I’m doing all right, getting good grades
The future’s so bright, I gotta wear shades

BUY AMERICAN MADE PRODUCTS!
BOYCOTT PRODUCTS MADE IN CHINA AND MEXICO!

It also used to be NATIONALHANDSHAKE DAY, but that was before COVID-19.

6:20am: A couple of raccoons were just fighting in the trees in the backyard!
The dogs went nuts and started barking. The coons were hissing and squealing.
We got to watch them fight and shake the trees. RACCOONS ARE REALLY NASTY!
So there was a little excitement already today.

8:20am: We took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs.
The little girl isn’t eating her food for the second day…. and we’re a little worried..
We took the dogs outside again and made a double espresso with whipped cream.

NATIONAL ONION DAY and NATIONAL ORANGE BLOSSOM DAY.

1:20pm: We had the dogs in the Home Office and now they’re in the bedroom.
We just ate a toasted cheese sandwich and we made an iced espresso to drink.
And it is AFRICA HOT outside today.
And it’s going to be HOT in the SFV all week long.
Screen Shot 2021-06-27 at 12.01.58

NATIONAL BOMB POP DAY and NATIONAL ICE CREAM CAKE DAY!
“I scream! You scream! We all scream, for ice cream!”

10:50pm: Recapping our Sunday. Nothing happened.
The dogs got fed. The dogs went outside.
We didn’t eat dinner. We fell asleep around 8:00pm!
We just woke up and ate a handful of grapes.
And we decided to update this Blog Post.

NATIONAL HIV TESTING DAYHAVE YOU BEEN TESTED?
“Take the Test, Take Control.”
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends a HIV test
as part of a routine physical for everyone age 13-64. 
NOTE: The CDC recommends testing at least once per year.
Sexually active people should test more frequently depending on their risk factors.

San Fernando Valley Sunset over the Sepulveda Basin

Apologies again to my loyal readers! Sorry, we’ve been busy. Haven’t written a new blog since mid-July and it’s August 6th already. Real life has intervened in our internet fantasy.

First, the bills from June’s midnight Emergency Room visit are coming in and they’re BIG BILLS! Even with good insurance, the 8 hours in the hospital is running about $400 per hour right now…. and all I did was lay there. (And we didn’t even get kissed along with the screwing) I’m not a charity case, but we might have to start a “GoFundMe” page!

Second, it’s summertime in Los Angeles and we have to care for 3 dogs. And it’s been really hot, so the little beasties are inside most of the day and we are responsible for keeping them safe, happy and entertained. It takes a lot of time and is very distracting from important things we have to do, including writing new stuff for the Blog.

Dog Days of Summer in Los Angeles

Summertime Travel Tuesday!

It was the Summer Solstice and a Strawberry Moon last week and it’s been HOT in the city of Los Angeles since then. And even HOTTER in the beautiful San Fernando Valley!

We’re having a heat wave and it’s not a tropical heatwave.

So, Hats Off to WILLIS HAVILAND CARRIER inventor of the Air Conditioner!

July 17, 1902 – Willis Carrier designed the first modern air-conditioning system to solve a production problem at the Sackett & Wilhelms printing plant in Brooklyn, New York.

Willis_Haviland_Carrier-Technology_Society-01

1904 – Willis Carrier applied for a patent on his invention, an “Apparatus for Treating Air,” which became patent No. 808897 and was issued on January 2, 1906. Carrier had invented the world’s first spray-type air conditioning equipment, able to both wash and humidify or dehumidify air.

1913 – Willis Carrier developed the Carrier Air Humidifier designed to humidify the air in one room, such as an office or laboratory. It was the first self-contained unit with the fan and motor, eliminator, and sprays all combined into a single, packaged product.

July 1, 1915 – The first offices of Carrier Engineering Corporation open in New York, Buffalo, Chicago, Philadelphia and Boston.

On October 7, 1950, shortly before his 74th birthday, Willis Carrier died while on a trip to New York City.

December 1998 – Willis Carrier named in Time Magazine’s “100 Most Influential People of the Century.”
