Season’s Greetings! Happy Holidays! 
We weren’t planning on doing a “Holiday Blog” for 2020, but it happened.
Happy Hanukkah, Happy Festivus, Merry Christmas,
Happy Kwanzaa, and Happy New Year! We hope you enjoy!

Hanukkah is now over. December 18 was the eighth and final night.

Winter Solstice is December 21
It’s Midwinter’s Eve! Joyous Noel! The Longest Night of the Year!
Winter Solstice is the shortest day and longest night of the year
The Sun is at the lowest (daily maximum) elevation in the sky today.
“The Christmas Star” – it is also the day of the “The Great Conjunction 2020”
Jupiter and Saturn will align and be the closest they have been in almost 400 years.

Festivus is December 23 – “A Festivus for the Rest of Us!”
this secular holiday is an alternative to the commercialism/pressures of Christmas.
STAYTHEFUCKHOME! Don’t wrestle with strangers!
festivus

We are very disappointed in you! And now you’re gonna hear about it!

We are 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….

Thursday, December 17, 2020 – Last Night of Hanukkah!

131380806_10224007344355252_726853013807487886_n

5:45am: We were up all night again.
And we just posted our “New Recipes For 2020” and “CV! Part 92” Blog Posts.

9:30am: We are so tired. And now we’ve had our second cup of espresso.
We may have slept for two hours this morning between 6:00 and 8:00am.

11:00pm: Well, it’s been another day. ThrowbackThursday.
More frustration. And we didn’t sleep, so we were cranky all day.
And we still haven’t eaten yet today really.
All we had 2 toasted English muffins with butter and raspberry jam, and a small banana.
We put on pants and ran errands today. And really tried to avoid other people.
We slept this afternoon for a little bit, and then we fell asleep again this evening.
Now we are awake and hungry. And we want Latkes, but then we have to cook.

Latkes
And CHECK OUT OUR OTHER RECIPES! (in our previous Blog Posts)
Just posted a “New Recipes for 2020” Blog Post below.

Friday, December 18, 2020 – Hanukkah’s over. ‘Tis the Season!

48366207_2595143717178845_1850678515670712320_n

We are not going to do a Christmas music or Christmas Blog Post.
There’s no reason to celebrate the holiday this year.
TRUMP KILLED CHRISTMAS – just like he killed 310000+ US Citizen….

“Home for the Holidays” has a new meaning this year.
As in STAY THE FUCK HOME! No Christmas Parties Please.
We are invited to our friend’s annual New Years’ Eve Party…..
and we are not going this year. Sorry, not sorry. But still sorry.
We won’t be attending any parties this year. but thanks for the invites!
And you shouldn’t attend any parties, gatherings, dinners, or other events!
We are dreaming of Las Vegas, and we are not going! Vegas isn’t safe.
We are “safer-at-home” in Los Angeles, sheltering in place, and waiting.
We cancelled the housekeeper’s second day this week, extra day off for her.
And we’ll still pay her. We love her! She is family, not just domestic help.

On The Menu: Chicken chili super soft taco with avocado at 12:30am.
131992901_4320662274626972_3280824254464150243_o

10:45am: Hello Friday.
We slept. We woke up. We’ve had two cups of espresso.
We ate 2 toasted english muffins with butter and raspberry jam for breakfast.
The dogs got fed. We got the newspapers and the mail.

4:00pm: We slept for awhile. 11:00-1:00, 1:00-2:00, 2:00-3:00
Wow, 4 hours, waking up every hour or so and then going back to sleep.
The dogs got fed an early supper and they had a long beautiful day of play and napping.

131155270_10223989824837275_6898127772267718134_n

We finished binge-watching “The Good Lord Bird” limited series about John Brown on Showtime. Very well done. Ethan Hawke is excellent as the madman lunatic fanatic!
Great period piece (pre-Civil War), excellent cast and acting, excellent cinematography,
It was also very well written and well executed, with a “timeless theme” that is very timely for our current state-of-affairs and all things BlackLivesMatter and more. Thumbs up.

On The Menu: Dinner delivered from The Cheesecake Factory: orange chicken with rice and vegetables, Sante Fe salad, tiramisu cheesecake, and a coke to drink.
131982446_4320656564627543_3427954092374045270_o

11:30pm: Then we fell asleep after dinner and cheesecake…and woke up around 10:30pm.

And then we watched TV and surfed the interweb.
Friday night on the Las Vegas Strip – there are still a lot of people out on the weekends!
And the Showgirl Mafia is always at work!
The week before Christmas in Vegas sucks.
And then imagine this year for locals in Las Vegas,
after 10 months of Trump’s CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC.
(screenshot from the “Not Leaving Las Vegas” livestream, we are still safer-at-home)
Screen Shot 2020-12-18 at 19.40.35
We watched music video reaction vids on YouTube.
Last night Jamel_AKA_Jamal discovered Cab Calloway and the Nicholas Brothers!
And he did the new Grateful Dead “Ripple” video too!
Today he was introduced to Sister Rosetta Tharp! LOVE THIS GUY!
And then we watched a guy build a luxury jungle outhouse out of jungle stuff
with a machete, stone axe, basket, clay pot, and a shovel tool too.
Screen Shot 2020-12-17 at 21.39.37

Good Shabbos! Stay healthy! Be happy!
Have a great weekend at home in your bubble.

3:30pm: Saturday recap.
We finally fell asleep around 5:30am.
And we woke up before 8:00am…
there were two deliveries before 8:00am this morning.
Dogs, newspapers, mail taken care of…
Laid down to take a nap and got woken up again:
Guy knocking on my door to try to sell me solar power on a Saturday
during a pandemic is just one reason
the “RING” doorbell needs a pepper-spray accessory. Just sayin’.

NFL Football on Saturday! Buffalo Bills v. Denver Broncos at Mile-High.
Denver is wearing their all orange “throwback” uniforms –
AND THEY SHOULD NEVER WEAR THEM AGAIN! Just UGLY.
“The Broncos are the only team with a turnover in every game.”
The first half, the Broncos sucked, and the Bills led 21-7.
Then Denver forgot to bring their game in the second half.
YES THE BRONCOS LOST AGAIN.
And Green Bay beat Carolina in the evening game.
We changed the channel, and fell asleep again before the game ended.
We slept until about 7:30pm.

131909251_10224009711094419_3218920318507754980_n

On The Menu: We had a quesadilla with salsa and juice to drink for breakfast.
Then for lunch, 2 Hotdogs with mustard, dill pickle, carrots&celery sticks, half an avocado, raspberries, strawberries, and red grapes.

Sunday, December 20, 2020 – SUNDAY! SUNDAY!

On The Menu: Chicken matzah ball soup, that we made earlier in the day
and we finally ate some just after midnight. It was delicious and filling.
132121311_4327900663903133_998914426916383363_o

We slept for a couple hours this morning.
We had a cup of espresso and went to bed around 6:00am. Woke up around 10am.
The dogs got taken care of, of course.
We woke up feeling okay, but our day went to hell pretty quick.
TRIGGERED. PTSD. Trying to keep control of our emotions.
Feeling very angry. Feeling trapped. Feeling FURIOUS! Not wrong to feel this way.
We have some unresolved issues, from our “happy” childhood, from teen adolescence,
and some wounds that will never heal – no matter how hard we want them to.
TOTALLY TRIGGERED!

On The Menu: Sunday Brunch! Breakfast for lunch.
2 eggs over medium, bacon, quesadilla with salsa and red grapes

5:00pm: and things are a little better now – calm is restored temporarily – Breathe in.
Breathe out. WE ARE NOT OK. We took a short nap, and slept through most of the second football game today. The Rams lost to the NY Jets here in an empty just-built billion dollar stadium in Los Angeles. Seriously, they were still building SOFI Stadium last December!

And now its time for the Cleveland Browns v. New York Giants game!
The dogs got fed and we went outside, and now we are all chillin’ in the Home Office.
We had another espresso and we did a little cleaning up during the second half.
We knew the Browns were going to win, and they dominated all game long.
And it’s just after 8:00pm, the game is almost over.
Browns 20, Giants 6, with less than 2 minutes left,
so we don’t think they’re going to stage a comeback.
And we’re hungry for dinner or something now.

317000+ US DEAD from Covid-19 as of today: December 20, 2020 at 6:28pm PST
(these numbers are always under reported, so there are even more dead Americans)

NOTE: We have been avoiding thinking about the news.
And everytime we go on Twitter we get really angry, so trying not to visit Twitter too.
But you can’t help but hear about what’s happening:
CoronaVirus Out of Control – Hospitals Overwhelmed (0% ICU Beds in Los Angeles)
Russia Hacked the US Government and US Industry. (NO RESPONSE from Trump)
Electoral College confirms Joe Biden won again.
Trump and the GOP Traitors still refuse to concede the election.
And it’s Christmas, so the network news won’t cover anything important.

“Wave that Flag! Wave it Wide and High!”

There’s a full moon, known as the Buck Moon, and a partial penumbral lunar eclipse visible from most of North America tonight! The eclipse begins at 11:07pm ET, with maximum lighting just before 12:30am and ends at 1:52am.

USA! USA! USA!

Happy Holiday! Happy 4th of July! StayTheFuckHome!
And we stayed home with the dogs. It was HOT outside.
We should be with friends at a BBQ, but instead we are home alone.
So we made and ate a big lunch at 3:00pm.

The Fourth of July,
This aggression will not stand!
Time to BBQ.

On The Menu: 2 Bacon Cheeseburgers and fruit & veggies
79093829_3805927196100485_1609203984638399605_n

And then we fell asleep for a couple hours.
We woke up and took care of the dogs. We were outside. They got fed.
And we were outside again. And they got to chill in the office with us all night because of the holiday. Fireworks started before sunset and they were everywhere by the time it got dark.

FIREWORKS ARE ILLEGAL IN THE CITY OF LOS ANGELES!
We went out in the backyard twice and yelled at our next door neighbors to stop shooting off illegal fireworks near the trees between our property! They were shooting off skyrockets and loud bombs and little cracklers, without consideration for the neighbors, people’s pets, and the wildlife that live in the area. Things finally quieted down in our neighborhood around midnight, but fireworks from the North Valley and the occasional local BOOM continued into the early morning hours.

Los Angeles is a “war zone” tonight! Beyond the endless fireworks, there are all kinds of shootings (at least 39 on Saturday night) and stabbings and kidnappings and suicides happening all over the city! People are crazy after being locked up for months and it’s the full moon!

Lunar Eclipse time! Sorry, no partial eclipse for you – because the time posted was Eastern Time and we just missed it. But it was a beautiful full moon!

“Enjoy Every Sandwich” – Warren Zevon

We slept in until 9:30am! Well, we were up all night with the dogs.
We fell asleep for a couple hours in the morning and then we woke up and took care of the dogs. Our usual morning routine, and we got the newspapers, and enjoyed a cup of espresso. We needed to catch up on our Blog, we are still celebrating 150000 HITS, so we spent a little time here and we just posted last week’s update (Part 51).

It’s Noon, well 12:15pm now, and time for Sunday Brunch. We ate cheeseburgers yesterday at 3:00pm, and didn’t eat dinner, so we are feeling a little hungry right now.

10:00pm: We ate a toasted bagel with cream cheese and then took a nap for the rest of the afternoon. We woke up and we played with and fed the dogs. We watched part two of HBO’s “Gone in the Dark” documentary and then we listened to the two podcasts online. And we were awake the rest of night and into the morning. We didn’t eat any dinner, but we snacked on celery with peanut butter, a couple handfuls of almonds, some tortilla chips, and a little milk chocolate. We took a shower and fell asleep.

7:00am: Good morning! It’s Monday again!
We woke up about an hour ago. We got the newspapers and fed the dogs.
We were outside with the dogs on both sides of breakfast.
We ate a toasted bagel with cream cheese and drank an iced espresso.
We updated this Blog Post, and added Monday morning stuff.
We have some chores to do today and the housekeeper is coming later.
And it’s going to be HOT again here in Los Angeles this week.

107274049_3810642628962275_6722037860897710846_o

10:20am: It’s HOT! We scooped the poop.
Then we tried to do some gardening but it was TOO HOT outside.
The housekeeper is here and we have the dogs laying down in the office.
We are all self-isolating while she cleans.

Celebrity Deaths this week:
Carl Reiner, actor/comedian/writer/director, age 98
Hugh Downs, newscaster, age 99
Ennio Morricone, award-winning Italian composer, age 91
Nick Cordero, Broadway star, from CoronaVirus complications, age 41
Charlie Daniels, country music star, had a fatal stroke today, age 83

29683265_2205528932806994_2688680962161639424_o

Recap of Monday: We slept for a few hours while the housekeeper cleaned. And when we woke up she was gone. And we let the dogs run free around the house and outside for awhile before making breakfast for lunch. Later we cooked a chicken breast for the dogs, (we season their regular dog food breakfast and dinner with chopped chicken breast)

On The Menu: 2 eggs over medium, bacon, a quesadilla with salsa, an orange, with juice and an iced espresso to drink
106936242_3814484401911431_1284765113047005230_o

And the dogs got fed. And then we fell asleep again and woke up around 11:00pm. And we didn’t eat dinner again…. (and time for a rant)

SO THE WEEKEND F*CKING SUCKED! CORONAVIRUS 4th of JULY! 
AND THE FASCIST IN THE WHITE HOUSE USED THE HOLIDAY TO SPEW MORE RACIST BULLSHIT AT MOUNT RUSHMORE AND ON THE NATIONAL MALL IN WASHINGTON D.C.
We didn’t mention the Orange Turd in this Blog Post because of the holiday and because he is an international disgrace without a single redeeming quality. Everyday he does more damage to our country and to “WE THE PEOPLE” that’s us, the public.

We just can’t right now…. TO BE CONTINUED.

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

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!

CORONAVIRUS! Part 18 – Easter Weekend!

CORONAVIRUS! Part 18 – Easter Weekend!

Saturday, April 11, 2020 
Taking the day off from Blogging the TRUMP CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC crisis.
and It’s National Pet Day!

51911371_2690385244321358_6712588053157773312_n

National Pet Day! My Quarantine Buddies!

STAY HOME! – STAY HEALTHY!
DON’T PANIC! – REMAIN CALM!

AND GO WASH YOUR HANDS!

3:00pm – After we woke up last night, we were up most of the early AM. We finally fell asleep, but had to wake up for the dog’s morning feeding. Took care of that and went back to bed…. slept until about 11am. We are still very much on edge emotionally.

It’s a beautiful day here in the San Fernando Valley and we’re not going to worry about sh*t right now…. NO NEWS IS GOOD NEWS FOR REAL!
There was a little something in the NY Times about Trump today……

Spent time in the backyard with the dogs and then totally cleaned and sterilized the kitchen. We ate leftover pizza around 5pm (call it lunch).
Fed and played with the dogs of course.

7:30pm One More Saturday Night! (started at 5:30pm, replay available on youtube)
Tonights concert: Dead&Co. 11-14-17 Madison Square Garden in NYC
Nugs is replaying Dead&Co concerts from the past every Saturday night as a Fundraiser for MusiCares COVID-19 Relief to aid musicians affected by the CoronaVirus Pandemic.

AND ANOTHER DAY IS DONE…. Hey Saturday Night!

8-9:00pm And then we joined a “ZOOM around the burn barrel”
with Professor Pickle (and a real burn barrel with real fire)
and two other peeps for an hour of Burner socializing online!
Screen Shot 2020-04-11 at 20.50.01
That is us on ZOOM on Saturday night from the Home Office in Los Angeles.
And it was LIVE with human beings, and also fun and entertaining!
Our third ZOOM experience, so amazingly weird… wearing our burner hat.

NOTE: This is a whole new world of internet participation.
And so we are considering clearing our back desk and creating a scenic background.
Or just go with the virtual background (if we can figure out how to do that)?

Screen Shot 2020-03-19 at 03.38.22

FACIAL COVERING IN PUBLIC IS MANDATORY NOW!

 

And we ate some of the leftover Chinese food for dinner around 11pm.

“Leftover pizza for lunch. Leftover Chinese food for dinner.
Leftover is the Jewish holiday that comes after Passover.”

DO THE FIVE – HELP STOP CORONAVIRUS!
1 – HANDS – Wash them often
2 – ELBOW (OR SLEEVE) – Cough into it
3 – FACE – Don’t touch it
4 – SPACE – Keep safe distance (6 feet or more)

Sunday, April 12, 2020 – HAPPY EASTER SUNDAY!

Woke up at 3:30am, so we slept maybe an hour and a half, and now it’s 5:40am.
I HAVE RISEN! Did a little youtube viewing in the past 2 hours.
We were considering going to the Supermarket…
There is a list of stuff to get, but we have everything we need to go another day,
and the Supermarket will still be there tomorrow (most likely, but no longer 100%).
So, now the decision must be made…. and NO. We are not going today.
We will face the paranoia tomorrow or Tuesday morning and venture out later.
Today we will chill with the dogs again.

“Conan the Barbarian” with Arnold was just starting this morning!
A film about killing false prophets…how appropriate.
And Conan gets crucified and resurrected too!

Conan barbarian

Arnold as Conan the Barbarian

We also watched and HIGHLY RECOMMEND
the “Saturday Night Passover Seder”

THIS WAS INCREDIBLE!
You don’t have to be Jewish to love this.
Happy Passover everyone!

5:00pm – Recap the afternoon, shall we?
So, we played with dogs inside and outside.
We did a little “Spring cleaning” at the Home Office.
We did a little “gardening” outside too.
Yesterday was beautiful with blue skies.
Today was just overcast and “gray all day” in L.A.

We had a toasted bagel with cream cheese, orange juice and an espresso for breakfast this morning, and we had a bite of leftover orange beef and a bite of brownie around 4pm.
And we are drinking another espresso while writing this with one dog at our feet and two asleep on the bed. Our big dog is hanging out somewhere else today.

92592672_3575650262461514_4941532647697416192_o

7:00pm We fell asleep with the dogs for an hour and a half.
Woke up and fed the dogs and took them outside.

Easter Dinner for one.
On The Menu: Leftover Chinese food (day 2) – Orange beef and fried rice with an iced espresso. And then we baked banana bread. Mmmmmm….Banana Bread!

Leftover Chinese food (day 2) – Orange beef and fried rice

Baking and cooking is good for relaxation. It can be meditative too.
The Zen of Making! And the end result is the instant reward.

The Easter Weekend Trifecta (a classic triple feature):

And the BEST EASTER FILM EVER:

And….. “Always Look On The Bright Side of Life!”

Just a quick reminder:

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

March 9: “This blindsided the world.”

March 13: “I take no responsibility.” (YES HE REALLY SAID IT!)

Screen Shot 2020-04-13 at 06.52.06

115000+ Reported Deaths as of Monday, April 13, 2020 at 6:20am PST

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 was briefed about Coronavirus almost 3 months ago!
He called it a hoax, a conspiracy theory, and then chose to ignore and lie about it!
TOTAL FAILURE! Trump fired the NSC Pandemic Team in 2018!

90718743_10163021176060702_8798179714888892416_o

Why did the United States refuse the World Heath Organization test kits?
Why did the Trump Administration wait to act?
Why did the Trump Administration tell the Washington state doctors not to test?
Why did the GOP Republicans call it a “Democratic Hoax?”
Why didn’t the CDC test kits work?
Why did they wait to get new test kits from Roche? (~400000 available soon)
Why did he put Mike Pence in charge?

THERE IS NO POSITIVE SPIN FOR A GLOBAL PANDEMIC AND THE TOTAL FAILURE OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT TO PROTECT THE PUBLIC HEALTH!
THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION HAS FAILED TO PROTECT THE UNITED STATES!

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

LAST DAY OF THE DECADE! HAPPY NEW YEAR 2020!

NOTE: A couple people posted that the decade doesn’t end until the end of 2020….
and that’s WRONG. It’s the 20s tomorrow.

We are staying home with the dogs tonight. And we are feeling sick.
As in, NOT FEELING WELL (sore throat…coughing)
– and we don’t go out and socialize with friends when we are sick.

We are WAITING for the holidays to be over. (not feeling the spirit this year)
But we still put on a Happy Face and play along with the festivities as best we can.
We usually count January 6th, Twelfth Night, as the end of the winter holiday season.

Aiko Aiko All Night!

We saw Dead & Co at the Fabulous Forum on Friday night 12-27-19 and had a lot of fun.
So we’ll call that our New Years Eve party this year. (and we’ll probably watch the concert from San Francisco on the interweb tonight if we can)

“Truckin’, got my chips cashed in.
Keep truckin’, like the doo-dah man

NOTE: We’ll probably do a Blog Post about the concert, and we still have to finish and post our Blog about Dead in the Dome 2.0 – The Melvin Seals & JerryGarciaBand concert.

“And in the master’s chambers,
They gathered for the feast
They stab it with their steely knives,
But they just can’t kill the beast”
– The Eagles’ Hotel California

We are hosting The Thanksgiving Feast again this year, as we do every year. There will soon be 15-20 people in our kitchen, living room, dining room and big den enjoying fabulous food and wonderful desserts. The last couple days have been prep for the party and early this morning we baked our (make it every year or get ready for guilt) Grandma’s Cherry Cheesecake. The recipe is available in a previous Blog Post if you are interested, link below or use the Search Box at the top of the page.^^^^^scroll up^^^^^

NOTE: Our “Guest coming from the furthest place” was my sister’s good friend, who came from Stratford-upon-Avon, England this year to party with us!
