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!
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!
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)?
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)
5 – HOME – Stay home if you can (or if it’s mandatory)
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!
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.
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!
Baking and cooking is good for relaxation. It can be meditative too.
The Zen of Making! And the end result is the instant reward.
Read the previous Blog Post “Baking Banana Bread” for the recipe and video!
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.”
“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!)
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!
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!
