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.

Up on Bluebird Hill
Call me a whinin’ boy if you will
Born where the sun don’t shine
And I don’t deny my name
Got no place to go, ain’t that a shame?
“So Many Roads” by the Grateful Dead

The Grateful Dead at Watkins Glen Raceway, New York July 28, 1973

8:30am: And TGIFriday! It’s Friday!
We were up all morning long, and we laid down after sunrise.
And then the dogs were awake and barking.
The dogs went outside. The dogs got fed. 
We drank a cup of espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.
We just published Part One of “The Days Between” Blog Posts.
We worked on future Blog Posts this morning too.
But TRAVEL MUST WAIT AGAIN, so we are in LIMBO right now.
There are ROOFERS on our street, and they start too early.
They are replacing the wood shake roof across the street this week.
(Can’t even imagine how HOT it must be up there in August!)

Today’s SECRET WORD is HELP:

-make it easier by offering one’s services/resources
-serve someone with (food or drink)
-improve (a situation or problem); be of benefit to
-aid, assist, improve, remedy, support
-the act of helping someone to do something; assistance
-a person or thing that helps, a domestic employee
-giving assistance to
-an appeal for urgent assistance
– a song title and the fifth studio album by the Beatles

The Beatles’ “HELP!” was released on August 6th, 1965.
(WOW! We did not know that, and that’s a really weird coincidence!)

10:55am: We made another iced espresso.
Watching TV: “Flight of the Conchords” in concert on HBO.
+Surfing the interweb, and working on this Blog Post for a couple hours.
12:00Noon: We did a little dog grooming, and brushed out all the dogs.
We do a little bit everyday of course, but they all got brushed this morning.
We took them outside and now they are happy in the kitchen.
And we might be hungry.

It’s HIROSHIMA DAY! (aka “A-BOMB DAY”)
The anniversary of the first World War II Atomic Bomb attack on Japan.
Hiroshima Heiwa Kinen Kōen is a public park in the center of Hiroshima, Japan. It is a memorial dedicated to the first city to suffer a nuclear attack, the memory of the victims (as many as 140000), and to WORLD PEACE. Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park is visited by more than one million people every year. The annual August 6th Peace Memorial Ceremony is sponsored by the city of Hiroshima.

Old_and_New
The A-Bomb Dome is the former Hiroshima Prefectural Industrial Promotion Hall.
The building is the nearest building to the bombing that remained partially standing.
It’s now another memorial to the August 6th, 1945, 8:15am nuclear explosion.

“the Peace Memorial Ceremony has never once been cancelled since the Cenotaph for the A-Bomb Victims was built in Peace Memorial Park in 1952, the Peace Memorial Ceremony will be held this year in a similar manner as last year with strict COVID-19 infection prevention measures.”

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.

10:22pm: Recapping Friday afternoon. We made some lunch.
TV, interweb, YouTube, podcasts. We were mildly entertained.
We fell asleep with the dog and slept.
We woke up and then we went back to bed and slept some more.

On The Menu: Fried chicken breast, quesadilla with salsa verde,
and a dill pickle. With an iced espresso to drink.
227437503_5008893289137197_4831300652529456337_n

We woke up again. The dogs got fed and went outside.
We made and ate some dinner at 10:00pm. GOOD SHABBOS!

On The Menu: Double helping of Mama’s homemade lasagna. And a coke.

NOTE: We were invited to Friday night dinner again.
We don’t feel it is safe to eat and party
with people not inside your bubble again….
WE DON’T KNOW: WHO IS FULLY VACCINATED?
WE DON’T KNOW: WHO IS INFECTED AND CONTAGIOUS?
Is it really safe to party indoors with people who are vaccinated? 
Do you know where they’ve been and who’ve they’ve contacted?
Are they being honest about their status and contacts?
So, we didn’t go the party and we ate our dinner alone.
And then we had a little dessert.

On The Menu: Chocolate Cake from Benes Bakery with Haagen-Daas
vanilla ice cream, Hershey’s chocolate syrup, and whipped cream229426016_5009305815762611_3786892256874291047_n

Thought I heard that KC whistle
Moaning sweet and low
Thought I heard that KC when she blow
Down where the sun don’t shine

and watching YouTube vids and Livestreams. Sleepy time soon.

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZ

7:15am: We are awake again. The dogs got fed and went outside.
We drank a cup of espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.

8:00am: We took the dog outside again. Now it’s nappy time for the dogs.

Today is the midpoint of Summer in the Northern Hemisphere
and Winter in the Southern Hemisphere.

9:10am: The gardeners are here.
They’re going to work in the backyard today.
We did a little dog grooming. And we thought about some food.
But we don’t know what we want to eat right now.
And we’ve had our coffee already, and we don’t want to drink more right now.

10:00am: Okay, we made an iced espresso. Still no food.
We’re chilling’ in the Home Office with the dog again.

And the gardeners were just finishing up in the backyard for the day.
It’s Saturday night. We got the dogs. The dogs got fed.
The dogs went outside. Now we’re chillin’ in the Home Office again.
BORING. So BORING.
We put on some music and the dogs are napping now.

Recapping Saturday night. We worked on our future Blog Posts.
We watched TV, surfed the interweb, watched YouTube vids and livestreams, 
and we were entertained, occupied, and distracted into the early AM hours.

Criminal Complaint filed against New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.
Sexual harassment and retaliation? The Democrats are giving him up.
Albany, NY Police press conference today. Not good for him.
The NY Attorney General’s press conference was also not good for him.
THIS IS JUST MORE GOOD MEDIA DISTRACTION
FROM TRUMP AND THE GOP TRAITOR’S TREASON!

The Senate is meeting today to vote on the “Bi-Partisan” Infrastructure Bill.
And 700000 Bikers are still gathering in Sturgis, South Dakota, this week!
They didn’t learn their lesson from last year, of course.
YES, PEOPLE ARE REALLY GREEDY AND STUPID.

THE NEW LAMBDA VARIANT IS SPREADING IN THE UNITED STATES!
“highly infectious, may also be able to evade vaccine antibodies”

The SARS-CoV-2 Lambda variant, also known as lineage C.37, is a variant of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. It was first detected in Peru in December 2020. On 14 June 2021, the World Health Organization named it Lambda variant and designated it as a variant of interest – wikipedia

Investigators in Chile conclude that the lambda COVID-19 variant is not only more infectious than standard SARS-CoV-2, but could also possibly shrug off vaccines. The first case in the United States has been spotted at Houston Methodist Hospital. – July 30, 2021

120000 New COVID-19 Cases in the United States yesterday.
The highest daily number in six months! Delta Variant is spreading fast.
619900+ Reported US DEATHS from COVID-19 as of this morning!
Hospitalizations are rising. Children are being infected.
And so, LET’S SEND THE KIDS BACK-To-SCHOOL. WTF?
Deaths are increasing again. The unvaccinated are dying.
And so, LET’S REMOVE MASK MANDATES and RESTRICTIONS. WTF?
And only 50% of the US population is Fully Vaccinated.
And so, WTF? Are they just waiting for the vaccine-resistant variant?
WE WANT TO GO OUT! WE WANT TO TRAVEL! WE DON’T WANT TO WORRY!
WHO THE FUCK IS IN CHARGE OF THE PANDEMIC RESPONSE?
WHY ISN’T THERE A NATIONAL EMERGENCY MANDATE?
WHY AREN’T THERE DOMESTIC TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS?
quarantine-flag-300x200
THERE NEEDS TO BE A 40 DAY TOTAL SHUTDOWN.
QUARANTINE EVERYONE, EVERYWHERE, except for actual essential workers.
NATIONAL GUARD/LAW ENFORCEMENT if necessary to enforce the shutdown.
REQUIRE EVERYONE GET VACCINATED IF THEY WANT TO GO OUT IN PUBLIC.
EVERYONE. And Rapid Testing for EVERYONE EVERY WEEK until it is eradicated.
ARREST AND PROSECUTE ANYONE SPREADING MISINFORMATION AND LIES!

The Delta Variant is VERY CONTAGIOUS and it might kill you.
4,304,980 Reported Deaths from COVID-19 Worldwide!
(the actual number is much higher)
COVID-19 is currently affecting 220 countries and territories.

104825102_10157872196359094_2045855313057625377_n
If it was just the “vaccine-deniers” that were dying, that would be okay.
THEY ARE THE ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE AND THE STATE NOW!
Hospitals should refuse to accept patients who have not been fully vaccinated.
The unvaccinated should be restricted from ALL PUBLIC SPACES.
Masks that cover the nose and mouth should be required EVERYWHERE.

DONALD TRUMP AND THE GOP TRAITORS REMAIN
A CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER TO THE WORLD in Summer of 2021!

THE GOP TRAITORS ARE LYING TO YOU!
DON’T BELIEVE THEIR LIES!
YOU KNOW WHAT REALLY HAPPENED!
YOU SAW IT WITH YOUR OWN EYES!

SEVEN MONTHS AGO, TRUMP AND THE GOP TRAITORS
TRIED TO OVERTHROW THE GOVERNMENT OF THE UNITED STATES! 

Breaking News from the State Department: (Why isn’t Mike Pompeo in prison?)
A $5,800 bottle of Japanese whiskey gifted to former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo by the government of Japan in 2019 is missing. Pompeo said he never received the bottle of whiskey and had no idea it was missing, or what happened to the gift. Pompeo’s lawyer, William Burck, told the Wall Street Journal that the former secretary of state had “no recollection of receiving the bottle of whiskey and does not have any knowledge of what happened to it.”
Earlier this year, the State Department’s independent watchdog group, Project on Government Oversight, found that GOP Traitor and Trump stooge Pompeo and his wife Susan “violated federal ethics rules by making over 100 personal, non-work related requests to department employees” (including ordering gifts, booking salon appointments, and taking care of their family dog).

FIRE AND ARREST TRUMP STOOGE
AND GOP TRAITOR LOUIS DEJOY NOW!

11:00pm: Wednesday night recap of Wednesday. It was HOT.
The dogs got fed, and they went outside, and they had a great day.
We got dressed and drove the car to the Sushi restaurant and picked up dinner.
And that’s about the most exciting thing that happened here today.
The gardener came. The pool guy came. We slept most of the day away.

There was a pursuit in Fontana this afternoon,
but it was pretty much slow speed and stupid.
In the end the police pulled her out of the car. Suspect in custody.
Screen Shot 2021-07-28 at 18.45.00

And there was another pursuit late last night!
Guy on a moped/mini-bike went for a long ride with the police behind him,
even went the wrong way on the freeway,
until he ended up in Whittier Narrows park where he WIPED OUT
and ended up in the dirt. Suspect in custody.

Dusty Hill RIP (May 19, 1949 – July 27, 2021)
May the Four Winds blow him safely home.


Remembering the “Neenster” on the sixth anniversary of her final day on this world
which was actually the 25th-26th, so we are a couple days late….
She just sent us a message as a reminder, and she will never be forgotten.

Thursday, July 29, 2021 – the 210th day of the year
International Tiger Day!

199703019_4142758069125427_5062278677667916700_n

12:20am: We took the dog outside.
We made and ate a “banana split” for a satisfying midnight dessert.

On The Menu: 2 scoops of Haagen-Daaz vanilla ice cream,
a small frozen banana (sliced), chocolate syrup, and whipped cream
222962379_4982007605159099_6772987262295625413_n

4:02am: We are still awake. The dog is sleeping on the bed.
The other dogs are in the bedroom sleeping. It’s really quiet.
We slept all day and took a nap in the evening.
Our sleep cycle and sleep patterns are truly messed up.
Today is Thursday. “IS THIS A WEEKDAY?”

8:30am: We fell asleep with the dog after 5:00am.
We turned on a podcast, crawled into bed, and fell asleep.
We woke up around 7:15am.


Well, it seems someone was breaking into cars and prowling homes and yards down the street this morning around 4:00am while we were still awake in the Home Office. They never made it down to our end of the block, maybe because they were spooked by the newspaper delivery guy or maybe because the neighbors alerted. So we talked with a detective from the LAPD out in the street this morning. There was a Home Invasion the other night less than a mile away that made the TV news and the Citizen App, and there have been a few others in the mid-valley recently. A lot of local property crime, armed robberies, and violent crimes connected to the “unhoused” that live along Ventura Blvd and in the Sepulveda Reservoir. And organized gangs are back in the valley looking for targets and victims. Crime has been getting a lot worse in the San Fernando Valley recently. We chased a guy out of the driveway when he was trying to steal the Mercedes (that we were about to return the dealer) in November 2020 (read the previous Blog Post). And those guys were pros and probably connected to the construction crew working across the street, because we haven’t had any problems with sketchy characters since they finished, until last night.

There’s been an underground poker game running out of the house on the corner for a couple months, and there was a game the other night. Usually 20-30 nice cars parked on the cross street, and a “doorman” in the driveway, when they are playing at house. And that’s also the corner where the guys were prowling around last night. We live in a very  “crime-free” neighborhood for the most part, so we take notice of strangers and any criminal activity is cause for concern. The violent Home Invasions have a West LA LAPD TASK FORCE working on the investigation, so they were canvasing our street along with the regular West Valley Division detectives. FUCK. One more thing.


The dogs got fed. The dogs went outside.
We got the newspapers and made an iced espresso.
Drink Coffee. Drink Water. Be Vigilant.

9:35am: We just made another iced espresso and then
we left a message for the detective who left his card on our front door.

A Tsunami warning was issued for parts of Alaska this morning
after an earthquake with a magnitude of ~8.2 occurred off the coast.

11:15am: We took the dogs outside. We got the mail. The housekeeper is here.
And we are chilling’ with the dogs in the Home Office until she is finished.

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.

3:15pm: Well, we took a nap with the dogs. The housekeeper left.
We took the dogs outside. We made another iced espresso. It’s HOT out.
And it’s Thursday afternoon. We have to keep reminding ourself.

5:40pm: FUCK. FUCK. FUCK. (at 5:00pm again)
The dogs went outside. The dogs got fed. The dogs went outside.

Recapping Thursday night.
Chopped chicken salad delivered. Ate half, saved half.
Fell asleep. Woke up. Took the dog outside.

BOMBSHELL NEWS! 
Simone Biles, the US Gymnastic Champion, pulled out of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics event for mental health reasons (and physical health reasons because a mistake on the uneven bars, vault, or balance beam can be very bad). Most people applauded her decision and it’s now really big media news. Some people didn’t support her decision, and some even made jokes (like Michael Ché) and now they’re the target of American “cancel culture”.
And then US Gymnast Suni Lee won the Gold Medal and became our newest “American Hero”.


12:30am: Time for dinner.
We had leftover salad, so we used it for tacos.
On The Menu: 2 chicken chopped salad tacos
228013841_4987695291256997_115587041296690013_n

9:05am: We were up all morning and fell asleep around dawn.
And then we woke up.
The dogs went outside. The dogs got fed. The dogs went outside.
We drank an iced espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.
We took a shower. We got dressed.

10:30am: We ran a couple errands. We went to our PO Box.
We went to the bank, and we went inside.
We contacted one masked person behind thick acrylic, the teller.
It’s a beautiful day in the SFV and it’s going to be HOT again.
We drove home. We got undressed.
And now we’re wearing our sweat shorts again.

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.

7:40pm: Recapping Friday. Good Shabbos! It was HOT today.
We ate a little green jello with whipped cream. Then we took a nap.
We slept all afternoon. The dogs got fed and went outside.
We made an iced espresso.

227779331_4987697011256825_6386472113867311452_n

It’s Friday night again. Another weekend for a week without end.
Seriously, what the F*CK? And how is it the END OF JULY already?
Tempus fugit. Time flies.

8:25pm: And we just played “fetch” with the little boy for a half hour.

On The Menu: Cubano sandwich with garlic chicken, dill pickle, avocado,
carrot and celery sticks, watermelon, and cherries for dinner,
with cran-raspberry-orange juice and an iced espresso to drink.
222567585_4988261107867082_5703723456577375227_n

Dogs, TV, Tokyo Olympics, the interweb, YouTube vids, and writing Blog Posts
on Friday night to stay busy and entertained in the Home Office.

Where were you on this day in 1983?
Grateful Dead at the Ventura County Fairgrounds

116375158_3885986671427870_250261337903080909_n

10:11am: One more Saturday morning.
We were awake until after 6:00am this morning.
We drank an iced espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.
We ate a quesadilla with avocado and salsa verde.
We woke up at 9:30am. And we need a nap already.
The dogs got fed. The dogs went outside.
10:40am: The newspapers and the mail made it inside.
We made an iced espresso and took the dogs outside again.
Now we’re chillin’ with the dogs in the Home Office
and we managed to fall down a Blues Brothers rabbit hole this morning.

“Briefcase Full of Blues” is the debut album by The Blues Brothers.
It was released on November 28, 1978, by Atlantic Records.
It was recorded live on September 9, 1978, at the Universal Amphitheatre
in Los Angeles, when the band opened for comedian Steve Martin.

464803_650307171662519_664485402_o

THE “Good Ole” BLUES BROTHERS BAND!
Steve “The Colonel” Cropper, Matt “Guitar” Murphy (RIP), Donald “Duck” Dunn (RIP), Willie “Too Big” Hall, Elwood, “Joliet” Jake (RIP), Murphy Dunne, Tom “Bones” Malone, Alan “Mister Fabulous” Rubin (RIP), and “Blue” Lou Marini. With a special shoutout to Paul “the Shiv” Schaffer!

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.

3:30pm: We took a nap with the dogs. We woke up.
We took the dogs outside and got a glass of juice.
And we just took the dogs outside again. And it is HOT.

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.

5:35pm: We took another nap with the dog. And we just woke up.
The dogs got fed. The dogs went outside. We ordered a pizza delivery.
On The Menu: Extra-large pizza with sausage and meatball delivered!

9:00pm: And suddenly, we are not stressed anymore.

We drank an iced espresso. We entertained ourself with YouTube vids.
Now we’re chillin’ in the Home Office.

Watching the Bertcast with Bert Kreischer on Youtube:
kreischer

And we watched the film “Outlaws” on a Showtime network,
about a violent Australian motorcycle gang named The Copperheads.
AND WHY DID WE WATCH IT? WHY?
We wanted to see how bad it was going to be. And it was bad.
It was gritty and raw, (and really bad and boring too) with some good acting.
It was a lot more real than “Sons of Anarchy” which we enjoyed.
And it was almost “Cinema Verité”, shot like real life,
but really it was just amateur (headache-inducing) camera work.

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.
172851611_10164828830585104_5054120128163087325_n

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.

204571988_4887135771312950_4985729327110375271_n

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.

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?

Summer 2021 in Northern Hemisphere began on Sunday, June 20.,
and runs from the June Solstice to the Vernal (Fall) Equinox on September 22.
June, July, and August (and now September) are the HOT months of the year.
The days are longer and the nights are shorter (and warmer).

Monday, June 21, 2021 – It’s SUMMERTIME!
“When all else fails, take a vacation.” – Betty Williams

2:30am: Monday! We just woke up from a short nap….

7:25am: We woke up about an hour ago. We got the newspapers.
We took the dogs outside, we fed the dogs, and we took the dogs outside again.
We made an iced espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.
Now we are starting our day in the Home Office.

11:30am: We went back to bed, woke up and took the dogs outside.
We ate a cold slice of leftover pizza. Then we went back to bed.
We just woke up and got the mail. Feeling’ “dazed and confused” for a bit.

2:35pm: We drank an iced espresso. We took the dogs outside.
It’s a beautiful, sunny, HOT, and very bright day.
And now we’re chillin’ in the Home Office again.

3:25pm: We just took the dogs outside again.

Screen Shot 2021-06-22 at 20.59.12

2:55am Tuesday: Recapping Monday evening and night.
There was a long pursuit and it ended in a standoff. in Burbank.
AUDI builds a great car if you want to run from the cops.
Screen Shot 2021-06-21 at 20.35.37

The SWAT team was called and they gassed the guy out of the car and into custody.
We took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs. We took the dogs outside.

We finally made some food. We were thinking tacos, but we made a burrito.
On The Menu: Tri-tip steak burrito with fresh guacamole and salsa verde
and a Jumex mango nectar to drink
: 202669256_4871321342894393_930636220028544226_n

And we fell asleep with the dogs and woke up a little before 3:00am on Tuesday.
We took the dogs outside and then put them back to bed in the bedroom.

“Shall I compare thee to a Summer’s day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate.” – William Shakespeare

3:10am: We’re awake again.

7:00am: And we are awake again. We were up for a couple hours in-between.
Okay then, GOOD MORNING. It’s f*ckin’ Tuesday. DO NOT TRAVELTUESDAY!
We haven’t had our coffee yet and we don’t feel like we slept.

“A vacation is having nothing to do and all day to do it.” – Robert Orben

Did everyone go to Las Vegas this weekend? No, okey where did you go?
TOO MANY PEOPLE ARE TRAVELING. And THERE IS NO LONGER ANY TESTING!
Mask are still required in when traveling, but not required at the destination? WTF?
THERE ARE STILL A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT FULLY VACCINATED!
The CoronaVirus COVID-19 Delta Variant is becoming the dominant virus strain…..
and it’s more contagious and deadly. DO NOT RELY ON THE “HONOR SYSTEM”
(and they aren’t even talking about the new virus strain from Vietnam yet)

Screen Shot 2021-05-08 at 22.10.08

8:25am: We still haven’t had coffee. And we didn’t eat yet.
We got the newspapers.
We took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs. We took the dogs outside.
We had the dogs in the Home Office. We took the dogs outside.
Now they’re in the bedroom. And Choreboy is here to do some stuff.

11:45am: Well Choreboy did.a little vacuuming…. and not much more.
We drank an iced espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.
We got the mail. We took the dogs outside. It’s a beautiful day.
And now we’re back in the Home Office.

1:35pm: We took a short (unintended) nap with the dogs.

3:20pm: So, we are still chilling’ in the Home Office with the dogs.
And they are just sleeping.
We ate some peanut M&Ms, but now it’s time for lunch.

4:10pm:
On The Mneu: Leftover pizza and an iced espresso for lunch
187558563_4778113578881837_4965582852574762591_n

6:40pm:
We took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs. We took the dogs outside.

Recapping Tuesday night: nothing happened. We watched TV and surfed the interweb.

We binge-watched “Sons of Sam” on Netflix, about “the .44 Caliber Killer” David Berkowitz
and the failure of the NYPD to properly investigate the murders after he was caught.
It was interesting, but you have to be a True Crime fan to really enjoy it, we think.

And we’re not going to Burning Man (or That Other Thing in the Desert) this year.
FREE BURN? No, a lot of people on The Playa…. without structure. TOO MUCH CHAOS.
And probably too many people – now that the pandemic is no longer an issue.
FUCK YOUR PRETEND BURN! It will be better next year. Or two years ago….

It’s International Olympic Day! 
On this day in 1894, the International Olympic Committee  (IOC) was founded in Paris. Followed by 126 years of bribes and questionable practices on the name of sports. The can’t cancel the Tokyo 2020 2021 Olympics or they face financial ruin, even in the middle of a deadly pandemic.

ETuxtaXXYAAVrNG1

The Glastonbury Festival, would normally be held this week. It is a five day party that takes place in Pilton, Somerset, in England . It is the largest music and performing arts festival in the world. And it is cancelled again in 2021 because of COVID-19. Attendance: was ~203,000 people in 2019.

and also do a little yard work before the gardener comes later today.
And we need to eat breakfast today, because we didn’t have dinner last night…..

And we gave up on the news….. it might rain, it’s going to be HOT later.
Kool and the Gang open the Hollywood Bowl season on 4th of July weekend!
Forty cows escaped yesterday from a slaughterhouse/meat packing plant
and they ended up stampeding through the streets of Pico Rivera late into the night.
The cops shot and killed at least one, and ONE IS STILL MISSING, we heard,
and it was fun to watch a bunch of fools try to lasso a cow on someone’s lawn.

1:45pm: We took the dogs outside. We got the mail. Then we took a nap.
We woke up and made lunch, because we still hadn’t eaten anything.
On The Menu: Toasted cheese sandwich, dill pickle, carrot & celery sticks,
strawberries, raspberries, and a peach, with an iced espresso to drink

It’s a beautiful day again, but it’s also noisy trash pickup day in the neighborhood.

WE DON’T CARE ABOUT BRITNEY SPEARS! (because itt’s “BIG NEWS” today)
WE DO NOT GIVE A DAMN ABOUT HER CONSERVATORSHIP!
Entertainment Industry and State of California F*ckery with Lawyers!
She wanted to act “Crazy”, and they stole her money, and made her a trained chimp.
SHE IS JUST ANOTHER MUSIC BUSINESS AND HOLLYWOOD CAUTIONARY TALE.

Rudy Giuliani’s law license was suspended in New York State today!

Goodnight Conan O’Brien!

THE BIG DAY IS (finally) HERE!
We watched the Grand Opening of Resorts World in Las Vegas LIVE on Youtube.
Screen Shot 2021-06-24 at 20.11.23
The Vloggers were all there, with livestreams of the opening night festivities.
We briefly thought about making a reservation and driving to Nevada…..
Screen Shot 2021-06-24 at 22.45.49

And there were NO MASKS and NO SOCIAL DISTANCING!
The COVID-19 is apparently over if thousands of people can party without worry….

Seriously, does anyone else think we are STUPID?
We mean humans as a species are F*CKING STUPID..
Are we going to just forget the last SIXTEEN MONTHS OF FORCED SELF-ISOLATION?
Or Trump and the GOP Traitors’ four years of CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY?

Not Burning Man 2021

Not Burning Man! Breaking News!
Black Rock Desert, Nevada – August 2021
TTITD? TOTITD? Or just a radical simulation?

00Camp Envy

People will be out on The Playa (Black Rock Desert, Nevada) again this year!
Many more people this year then were at the “Pretend Burn” last year most likely.
Last year, the whole world was deep into the COVID-19 Pandemic
and the BMorg told people not to go, but of course people went….

97039979_2516247011813489_6830277037605781504_n

So this year, people have forgotten about the Pandemic and want to go.
There is NO BURNING MAN this year.
There wasn’t time or anyway to sell tickets and everything else.
Too many unknowns and TOO MUCH LIABILITY. AND NO CASH TOO.
So, hopefully they will be able to have Burning Man 2022… but who knows?

33751162_10211572435613395_6231678267217149952_n

This letter is from Chelsea McKinney, Burning Man Project Manager from the
Bureau of Land Management, Winnemucca District, Black Rock Field Office
June 7, 2021
Good Morning,
You are being contacted because you have reached out with questions or you have submitted an application for a commercial or organized group Special Recreation Permit (SRP) to come out to the Black Rock Desert playa this summer.
I am writing to inform you that the Bureau of Land Management, Winnemucca District, Black Rock Field Office (BLM), has made decisions regarding the activities mentioned above. These decisions have been made with Public Health and Safety, and Resource Protection in mind, and we hope that you all and other visitors will respect these decisions. The decisions are:
No Organized Group SRPs will be authorized/issued.
People are still welcome to visit the Black Rock Desert playa and camp.
No Commercial/Vending SRPs will be authorized/issued. Camps must be self-sufficient. No deliveries, or services will be authorized. This includes porta-potties. Camps can get their own toilets, off of public land, and bring them out themselves, then return them. This must all be done by someone in your camp. No pumping services will be authorized.
The BLM will also be implementing Temporary Restrictions of the playa.
These restrictions include:

Please use best judgement and know your limits. The BLM wants visitors to have a good time when visiting public land but we want you to be safe. Be aware that Emergency Services (medical, fire, law enforcement) are limited around the area.
I want to thank you all for reaching out and being responsible recreationists. I hope to see you out on the Black Rock Desert playa this summer. If you have questions please email me to schedule a time to talk. Thank you.

As per The Bureau of Land Management in Nevada website:

Responsible recreation is essential to ensure your public lands remain open to multiple uses. Please remember to stay on existing routes and practice “Leave No Trace” principles while enjoying your public lands.

Nevada’s public lands are open to camping. There is no fee for dispersed, primitive camping, but there is a limit to the number of days one may camp in the same location. Dispersed, primitive camping is camping where there are no developed amenities such as water or toilets. Primitive campers are asked to follow the “Leave No Trace” land use ethics. Dispersed camping in a motorhome is allowed, but dumping black or gray water on public lands isn’t allowed. Some campground are established that requires a fee to manage it.

A person may not occupy undeveloped public lands or designated sites or areas for more than 14 days within a 28 consecutive day period.
Following the 14 days, a person and their personal property must relocate to a site outside of at least a 25 mile radius from the occupied site for a period of 14 days.

The following Travel Guidelines have been developed for travelers entering, departing, or returning to the State of Nevada. Traveler must follow state and local requirements, and at a minimum, avoid large indoor gatherings, maintain social distancing, and always wear a face covering.

You should NOT travel if you fall into any of the following categories:

  • Have tested positive for COVID-19 and have not yet recovered
  • Have been presumptuously diagnosed with COVID-19
  • Are exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms
  • Have been potentially exposed to someone who is positive for COVID-19

IF you travel, make sure to do the following:

  • Avoid close contact by staying at least 6 feet (about 2 arms’ length) from anyone who is not from your household
  • Wash your hands often or use hand sanitizer (with at least 60% alcohol)
  • Avoid contact with anyone who is sick
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
  • Cover coughs and sneezes

Before you decide to travel to or from Nevada, do an assessment of the following:

  • Do you live with someone who might be more likely to get very ill from COVID-19? If you get infected while traveling, you can spread the virus to loved ones when you return, even if you don’t have symptoms.
  • Are you more likely to get very ill from COVID-19? Anyone can get very ill from the virus that causes COVID-19, but older adults and people of any age with certain underlying medical conditions are at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19.

Sunday, Temple Burn 2017

Come on, baby, light my fire
Try to set the night on fire


YUPDATED: Friday, June 11, 2021 – 2:00am
We just ripped this pic from P. Mackey (who took this pic earlier today)
The Playa on Thursday, June 10, 2021
198121969_10165585243240372_8333245388749787511_n

Some “beginner” guidelines to get you started::
Please consult the Burning Man website for THE SURVIVAL GUIDE and other info.
There are some “rules and regulations” and even some LAWS that you need to know.
WE ARE NOT AN ATTORNEY.
THIS IS NOT LEGAL ADVICE! Consult a licensed attorney.

Never burn anything directly on The Playa surface!
Use a Burn Platform or Burn Barrel for all pyrotechnics.
And technically you are not allowed to burn anything this year (as per the BLM)

Store fuel safely! Separate Fuel Safe Containment is required!
Make sure everything is ventilated properly!
(generators, fuel storage, cooking equipment, etc.)
Have charged fire-extinguishers and other fire-fighting equipment in your camp.

LEAVE NO TRACE! Pack it in, pack it out. LEAVE NO MOOP! (Matter Out Of Place)
There are no trash cans in the Black Rock Desert. Don’t let anything hit the ground.
Refer to the Burning Man website for more about LNT (Leave No Trace) and MOOP.

DON’T PEE OR POOP ON THE PLAYA! Seriously. Prepare for bodily functions.
It’s against the law to urinate/defecate on The Playa! There are serious FINES if caught!
Also, it’s fucking GROSS and OFFENSIVE and INCONSIDERATE, so don’t do it PLEASE.

Dispose of all fluids and materials, including gray water, by the appropriate means.
Again, DO NOT DUMP ON THE PLAYA! Evaporate Grey water properly.
Take the rest with you.

Drive safely and at a reasonable speed for the conditions.
Don’t drive erratically, ride on the roof or hang off the side of your vehicle.
DO NOT DRIVE WHILE INTOXICATED!  (“Buzzed” Driving is Drunk Driving!)

DON’T DRIVE ON WET PLAYA!
If it rains, do not drive until The Playa is completely dry.
Do not get stuck in The Playa Mud
it doesn’t just wash off and you may not recover your vehicle.
Towing from The Playa can get into the THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS
(if you can get a tow truck to come out on The Playa,
most warranties and/or services end at the highway and they won’t service you)

Secure your load, inspect your trailer, have a backup plan.
EXERCISE EXTREME CAUTION WHEN TRAVELING TO AND FROM THE PLAYA!
Obey all Traffic Laws and Vehicle Regulations! YOU MAY STILL BE PULLED OVER!
Nevada State Police, Reservation Police, Bureau of Land Management Police,
the FEDS, and other LEOs are just looking for a reason…..  DON’T GIVE THEM ONE!
Fines are high for all violations. You don’t want to go to jail in Nevada.
In the past they have harassed, searched, sniffed, and arrested Burners
using questionable and sometimes illegal tactics.
If you are stopped REMAIN SILENT!
DO NOT CONSENT TO SEARCH (even if you’re clean)
If you are searched GET NAMES AND BADGE NUMBERS!
They must identify themselves!
Get it on video if you can without antagonizing the situation!
USE THE ACLU APP!
If you are arrested: REMAIN SILENT! ASK FOR AN ATTORNEY!
Just STFU! Do not talk to officers. DO NOT TALK TO OFFICERS!
Once you are arrested
“ANYTHING YOU SAY, CAN AND WILL BE USED AGAINST YOU!”
CONTACT AN ATTORNEY! ASK FOR AN ATTORNEY!
They cannot ask you anything else after that. REMAIN SILENT!
And do not try to talk your way out, it doesn’t work.
They want you to incriminate yourself.
DO NOT LIE TO LAW ENFORCEMENT! REMAIN SILENT!
ASK IF YOU ARE UNDER ARREST!
ASK IF YOU ARE FREE TO GO!
If they say no, ASK IF YOU ARE UNDER ARREST!
REPEAT UNTIL THEY ARREST YOU OR LET YOU GO! REMAIN SILENT!
“I have been advised to remain silent. Am I under arrest? Am I free to go?”

Bring everything you need for RADICAL SELF RELIANCE and SURVIVAL!
The Nevada Desert can kill you.  Emergency Services are limited.
A HOSPITAL IS FAR AWAY!  If you are seriously injured you could die.
Have Medical and Travel Insurance for Medical Evacuation (by helicopter)!
Refer to the Burning Man SURVIVAL GUIDE for more info about NOT DYING.
1-2 Gallons of WATER per Person per Day is REQUIRED for SURVIVAL
Bring it with you! Use it wisely! STAY HYDRATED! PISS CLEAR!
Food. Shelter from the Elements – THE BLACK ROCK DESERT IS NO JOKE.
(SUN, EXTEME HEAT, WIND, WIND STORMS,
FREEZING COLD, PLAYA DUST, AND RAIN!
Prepare for the worst, you will probably experience it during your vacation.
Have FUN. Don’t die.

Another UPDATE: Wednesday August 11, 2021:

DIY if you aren’t making the trip to The Playa:
222973142_10224051545609451_3553569574434369896_n

And if you’re still going to Northern Nevada,
expect SMOKE from the California and Oregon Wildfires!
AND THE COVID-19 DELTA VARIANT IS STILL SPREADING!

NOT BURNING MAN SUCKS. DON’T GO.

Burning Man 2014 – Wake of the Flood on Monday



UPDATE Wednesday, August 18, 2021
For anyone going to the Black Rock Desert this month, be aware of these things:
– The Smoke from Fires in California and Oregon will impact your experience.
– The lack of infrastructure and contracted law enforcement,
porta-potties, and medical services.
– Cell reception is BAD.
You may be out of contact or have limited service on The Playa.
– The nearest Trauma-II Hospital is 141 miles away and a 3+ hour drive to Reno.

The Bureau of Land Management has published temporary restrictions, regulations,
and rules that will be in effect until October 31, 2021 to prevent Burning Man events.
If you are going to the Black Rock Desert, make sure you read and review the rules.

The Playa from the 8 Mile Gate Entrance today:
(pic by the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office)
Note: No Black Rock Mountains visible!
237003178_10157999283626611_4691422253809444854_n
We won’t be there. But have a good time if you go. Don’t die.

The end of the road….

Saturday, April 24, 2021 – Saturday!

4:20am: We slept for a few hours and then we woke up early, before 4:00am.

onemoresat

8:45am: We went back to bed.
The dogs got fed, the dogs went outside.
We drank a cup of espresso.


bobdylanelectric-1965-740x390

We watched “History Detectives” – an episode we’ve seen before on Rock and Roll stuff.
It features Bob Dylan’s Fender guitar from Newport ’65, a couple of Beatles’ autographs, and a Frank Zappa art piece. Great episode.

SPOILER ALERT! SPOILER ALERT! SPOILER ALERT!


The 2012 episode found out that the airplane pilot’s daughter had the guitar in New Jersey, and after a legal battle, she sold the Stratocaster at auction. Indianapolis Colts owner and Rock and Roll collector, Jim Irsay bought Dylan’s Newport guitar in 2013 for $965,000.

Irsay also bought Jerry Garcia’s one-of-a-kind “Tiger” guitar, made by Doug Irwin, at auction for $957,000 in 2002, and spent Five Million Dollars on some of David Gilmore’s guitars when they were auctioned for charity a few years ago. He has an amazing collection.


10:05am: We took the dogs outside again. We made another cup of espresso.
And then we cut up a pineapple, and ate a couple pieces.

12:25pm: We are chillin’ in the Home Office with the dogs again.
We took them outside and now they’re napping.
We made another cup of espresso and ate brunch/lunch.
On the Menu: toasted onion bagel with lox and cream cheese, dill pickle,
celery & carrot sticks, Italian salami, and a black&white cookie

4:45pm: We took a long nap with the dogs. Then we took the dogs outside.
And we just made a cup of espresso.

5:20pm: SO FUCKING TIRED OF THIS SH*T.

8:15am: Sunday morning. Dogs got fed. Dogs went outside.
We drank a cup of espresso and some orange juice.  Drink Coffee. Drink Water.
We ate a toasted onion bagel with cream cheese.

12:10pm: SUNDAY! SUNDAY! And we have liftoff.
We went back to bed and slept for a little bit. And then there was barking…..
We took the dogs outside. And now we are fully chill. But we are hungry too.
Choreboy is about to arrive, and now there’s some stuff to do around the house.

So, Choreboy did two loads of laundry and scooped all the poop.
He cleaned out the fridge, which was already pretty empty.
And then he did some dishes. He’ll be back tomorrow most likely for more.
It’s cold, and gray, and windy outside today.
We ate a toasted egg bagel with peanut butter and raspberry jam for lunch.
And we made some popcorn and drank a coke during the Oscars.

Zendaya. Yellow dress. Music. Original Score. “Soul” wins as expected. Trent Reznor (who was also nominated for another film), Jon Batiste – SUCH AN AMAZING ARTIST! – from Colbert’s show, and Atticus Ross onstage. Jon Batiste speech is rambling on, and it’s a good one. Yay Jazz! Zendaya is just sparkling! Music time.
Original Song (just clips, not full performances). FAIL. H.E.R. wins. “Judas and the Black Messiah” wins. “Fight For You” is the name of the song. Thanks to everyone. Very pretty in a blue sequined Hadjib dress?

Questlove Oscar Trivia with Lil Rey
, play a game with the Oscar audience. Did “Purple Rain” win  an Oscar, and she swore on LIVE TV. No, the score was nominated, but none of the songs. THIS IS JUST AWFUL. Feeling really Diverse as they bulls*t on Live TV. Donna Summer for TGIF! “Let’s Dance” won an Oscar for “Thank G-d It’s Friday”. Glenn Close “Da Butt” and this must be set-up… she swore on Live TV too. Glenn Close just put the boogie in her butt!
“Glenn Close correctly identified a clip of Da Butt written by Marcus Miller and performed by the DC-based band Experience Unlimited (EU) from Spike Lee’s 1988 film, School Daze.”
Questlove is inspired. He directed the “Summer of Soul” documentary – short preview, and Zendaya for Lancome “Idole”, Flonase, Jeff Goldblum annoying you for Apartments.com, Jimmy Kimmel Live ABC Promo, ABC “The Good Doctor” promo, Diversity again, she’s jamming, for Grey Goose Essence, and now The Resorts World commercial! It’s weird.
Mercedes-Benz EQ, KABC news promo
Angela Bassett in a big red dress – very dramatic and SAD.
In Memoriam. COVID-19, inequality, hatred, racism poverty. Lot of people died.
And the list of celebrities is really long. RIP. We worked with a couple of them. SAD.
May the Four Winds blow them safely home.
Commercials: David Bowie “SpaceOddity” for AirBnB. Acura, HULU promo for “Handmaid’s Tale” again, Rolex Oscars “best picture” again,   
Electric Company theme! Rita Moreno. BEST PICTURE nominees now. Okay.
Anthony Hopkins clip. “Judas” clip. “Mank” clip with Gary Oldman. “Minari” clip.
And “Nomadland” which will win. “Promising Young Woman” clip, “Sound of Metal” clip, and “The Trial of the Chicago Seven” clip. And the Oscar goes to “Nomadland” of course.
Screen Shot 2021-04-25 at 21.35.38
Chloe Zhao wins and Frances McDormand and a bunch of other peeps onstage. Chloe says thanks and then Frances takes the mic and howls….okay.
Commercials: man, we are tired of commercials, Verizon/Oscar bumpers, Verizon pandemic, Starbucks! FX on HULU promo
Rene Zellweger (in a peach dress). Leading Actress. Viola Davis, Andra Day, Vanessa Kirby, Frances McDormand, Carey Mulligan. And Frances wins of course for “Nomadland” 
– very short thank you speech
Joaquin Phoenix. Leading Actor. Anthony Hopkins. Rez Ahmed, Chadwick Bozeman RIP, Gary Oldman, Steven Yuen. And Anthony Hopkins wins.
And he’s not there. So no speech.
Questlove says thank you and goodnight. The End.
MUSIC WAS LIVE AND OFF THE HOOK!

Delta bumper – “air travel provided by”  
Senovva bumper – LED Walls “provided by”
And it pretty much sucked, and wasn’t very entertaining.
If we weren’t blogging it. We would have turned it off at the beginning.
No surprises. And not very exciting. Just pretty standard awards format,
with the usual COVID-19 adjustments, Nice that there was live audience, but it was STUPID and NO MASKS just sets a bad example for the public and will probably affect PUBLIC HEALTH. But, hey, lots of commercials, and lots of DIVERSITY. See Oscar isn’t so white…..
YEAH RIGHT. Alright, we’re done . That sucked. It’s going to be a ratings disaster tomorrow.
The dogs are sleeping here in the Home Office and we are hungry for dinner. 

8:22pm: “Oscars After Dark” following the Oscars. ABC is so damn DIVERSE!
300x169-Q100_e7be86f8d58f4a0318d3a99469d849d4
Trent Reznor, Jon Baptiste, and Atticus “After Dark”


9:20pm: We stopped, took the dogs outside,
and then went into the kitchen and made dinner.
And it’s drizzling a little outside. They said it might rain and they were right.

On The Menu: Breakfast for Dinner! Breakfast Burrito!
2 eggs over easy, bacon, and a quesadilla with salsa verde 
178966739_4697407930285736_3960988353607113068_n

We took the dogs outside again. And then they fell asleep.
And then we fell asleep…..

NO END TO THIS BULLSH*T. NO END IN SIGHT.
WE WON’T BE AT YOUR PARTY ON SUNDAY NIGHT!
ZERO CONTACT IS STILL THE RULE!
DO YOU THINK THAT I’M A FOOL?
DO NOT PARTY! AND HERE’S WHY:
IF YOU PARTY, YOU MIGHT DIE!

NOTE: We stayed the fuck home, and watched the Academy Awards’ Train Wreck.


Okay, here’s one for #StorySunday (on Monday):
Way back in the mid 1980s, we started gambling in Reno, Lake Tahoe and Las Vegas. And then we started working in the Hollywood film industry in 1989, and we met Frankie Valli and a old school “Friend of Frank’s” comedian named Joey Villa. Joey was friends with Meshulam Riklis and his wife Pia Zadora. Riklis was a corporate raider who bought the Riviera in 1973. Our friend Joey was booking the comedy room at the Riviera and also appearing in the “Splash” Revue stage show for many years, so when we visited him in Las Vegas in 1991, it was all VIP fun and a big party with Perry Como in the Penthouse. It was Old School Vegas, with real mobsters, and black tie glamour, at the Riv. “And now it’s all gone” They blew it up and tore it down, and now it’s a parking lot for the expanded LV Convention Center. Vegas just eats its own. So, we have a matching set of souvenir Riviera mugs, and ashtrays, and matches and even mini shampoo bottles from the many hotel stays. And sometimes we stayed next door at the El Morrocco/La Concha Motel or at another Strip hotel. And so we found this mug when thrifting, right before they announced the closing and demolished the hotel in 2015. We have so many crazy Las Vegas stories. They moved the Crazy Girls bronze statue to Planet Hollywood, so you can still see rub their butts for good luck. (if you’re interested you can read more about Las Vegas, the Riviera, and Joey Villa in our previous JoshWillTravel Blog Posts)

Monday, April 26, 2021 – PINK SUPERMOON TONIGHT (8:32pm PST)
Full Moon is named for the Spring bloom of the pink wildflower native to eastern North America: Phlox subulata (creeping phlox or moss phlox), also called “moss pink”

2:50am: Hello Monday morning, we’re up early. We fell asleep with the dogs for a little bit.
Not sure how long. It’s too early. So, we thought we’d update this Blog Post…. 

4:45am: Two hours later. And we decided to try to watch Disney/PIXAR’s “Soul” again.
Bob Dylan’s “Subterranean Homesick Blues”
Mystics Without Borders and Moonwind Stardancer on the brink of madness!
NOTE: “Soul” was great. It was beautiful. And it had a great Disney ending.
soul

11:55pm: Recapping Monday. Nothing happened.
We didn’t mean to take the day off, but it happened.
The dogs got fed. The dogs went outside. We got the newspapers and the mail.
The housekeeper came. We took a nap with the dogs. We drank espresso.
Drink coffee. Drink water.
It was a nice day outside. And now it’s overcast and drizzling a littlest midnight.
We ate a toasted bagel with cream cheese for lunch. And we just made dinner.
On The Menu: Mac’n’cheese just before midnight (and we are done now)

Wearing two masks can improve fit & give you better protection from
COVID19.
Wear a disposable mask under a cloth mask.

*FULLY VACCINATED means TWO WEEKS after the second dose! 
You are not fully vaccinated after the first dose,
and you are not fully vaccinated until TWO WEEKS after the second dose.
TWO WEEKS AFTER THE SECOND DOSE!
Vaccines don’t stop you from spreading the virus!
Vaccines may protect you from getting really sick,
and may prevent death if you contract COVID-19.
YOU CAN STILL GET SICK AND DIE.
YOU CAN STILL SUFFER FROM LONG-TERM EFFECTS.
YOU CAN STILL GET OTHER PEOPLE SICK.

Space, the Final Frontier 2021
– or what’s that in the night sky?

solar-system-planets
The Planets:
Mercury, Venus, Earth, (Moon), Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune (and Pluto)

Astronomy = the science of celestial objects, space, and the physical Universe.
And the study of the Universe beyond Earth’s atmosphere: the Sun, the Moon, galaxies, planets, stars, other objects that exist naturally in space, and other cosmic phenomena.
There are two main types of Astronomy: observational and theoretical.
Astronomy has been used to measure time, mark the seasons, and navigate the oceans.

Eclipses, meteor showers and other astronomical events in 2021:

JANUARY 2021

Quandrantids Meteor Shower peaks on January 2 and 3 (only runs January 1-5)

Conjunction of Mercury and Saturn on January 9
Conjunction of Mercury and Saturn and Jupiter on January 10 and 11

New Moon on January 13 (not visible)

FEBRUARY

Chinese Start of Spring is February 3

New Moon on February 11 (not visible)

Conjunction of Venus and Jupiter on February 11

Chinese Lunar New Year begins on February 12 – Year of the Yin White Metal Ox

February 18 is Pluto Day! Celebrate the discovery of the NINTH PLANET!
Clyde Tombaugh, an American astronomer, discovered Pluto on today’s date in 1930.
Pluto is named for the Roman G-d of the Underworld and has five known moons.
The International Astronomical Union (IAU) changed Pluto classification to a Dwarf Planet.
IAU claimed Pluto failed qualify as a full-sized planet. A full-sized planet must orbit Sol, the sun; have a sufficient mass to “assume hydrostatic equilibrium”, and “clear the neighborhood around its orbit.” Pluto has the first two, but not the third.
One day on Pluto is equal to 6.4 days on Earth. (6 days, 9 hrs, 36 mins)
Hundreds of dwarf planets exist, but the IAU only officially recognizes five:
Ceres, Pluto, Eris, Haumea, and Makemake.

Full “Snow” Moon on February 27 (aka the “Hunger” Moon)

Saturday morning…. storm warning!
Happy Summer Solstice!

12:30am: Okay, that was good. Took the day off Friday and drove the dogs to the beach and back. Had an okay bacon cheeseburger for lunch. Didn’t take any pictures. Got hot and sweaty and uncomfortable. Came home an took another shower.

92439123_1216567998719680_9141907193128288256_o

So, we took a nice hot shower at 4:00am on Friday morning thinking that would help us fall asleep, but it didn’t, we may have slept for maybe an hour and we woke up and fed the dogs and got the newspapers. Then we loaded the dogs cages into the car and got everything ready to go before they knew what was happening. We almost called it off (because we were so tired), but instead we loaded the dogs into the car and had an adventure

AND NOW HERE’S OUR CRAZY RANT OF THE DAY:

We didn’t really enjoy our trip, and it was very stressful for the dogs and for us…..
And the hostess at the hamburger stand WASN’T WEARING HER MASK ON HER FACE!
We parked and walked the dogs to the restaurant, it was hot and the dogs were still crazy from getting there, and then she had her mask around her neck, and was talking and handling the food and credit transaction WITHOUT A MASK! We were standing outside on the curb, and the exchange happened outside but WTF?! We wore a mask and we were 20 feet away with the dogs…. and when someone from the business came out and started approaching the dogs, we asked her nicely not to pet them (and without saying it – to stay the fuck away). And then we walked back with the food and it was hot and we were really angry but not saying anything, and we were stressing very hard about it.
WE HAVE TREMENDOUS ANGER TOWARDS PEOPLE WHO AREN’T BEING 100% SAFE! AND THAT IS BECAUSE WE HAVE ELDERLY LOVED ONES WHO MIGHT DIE IF EXPOSED! AND IT ONLY TAKES ONE CARELESS EXPOSURE – THERE’S NO SECOND CHANCE! AND SOME PEOPLE ARE CARELESS, AND SOME PEOPLE COULDN’T CARE LESS. AND THERE’S A STUPIDITY AND AN INCREDIBLE AMOUNT OF DENIAL ABOUT STUPID BEHAVIOR! YOU MIGHT DIE! YOUR FAMILY MIGHT DIE! YOUR FRIENDS AND ASSOCIATES AND NEIGHBORS MIGHT DIE! WE DON’T WANT THAT TO HAPPEN. And so our lunch was “just okay”, and actually it was really horrifying.

Screen Shot 2020-03-19 at 03.38.22

And to be honest, it’s the longest period of time we’ve been out of the house since the beginning of March, and the longest drive we’ve made in months, with the added pressure of managing, transporting, and protecting the dogs. It was really really stressful to begin with and then MY BIGGEST TRIGGER being exposed by someone without a mask happens right in front of me, TEN HOURS LATER AND WE ARE STILL BEYOND MAD.
And we drove home, with some real stop-and-go traffic on the 101 Freeway (the “Ventura Highway”), unloaded and took care of the dogs, took a shower, fell asleep and took a nap, woke up and fed the dogs, and worked on the Blog to work this out. And that was Friday.
It’s 1:00am Saturday morning now. We haven’t eaten dinner, but we ate some mini pretzels and a little ice cream and a few triangles of Toblerone chocolate, and we only ate half the bacon cheeseburger and fries for lunch because we just couldn’t. FUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCK. (and thats not even enough Fucks)

measlesquarantine

Okay, we’re going to go eat and/or sleep now we think. FUCKFUCKFUCK.
4:15am: SLEEP WON. We slept a little and just woke up and took the dogs outside.
And we didn’t even eat dinner.

NOTE: We revisited this mini-RANT on Saturday at 4:30pm and we’re still mad.

Saturday morning. Today is the day!
Trump’s Rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma! MAGA!

2:00pm: And we were awake and the dogs got fed and we got the newspapers.
And we were outside, and we went back to bed, and we woke up again.
And we were outside again with the dogs and we scooped the poop, and we are doing a load of laundry, and now we are updating the Saturday Blog Post.
And we are hungry and thinking about some breakfast/lunch food now.

What’s up under the desk? Such a Good Boy!

5:00pm: Okay, so we watered the new tomato plants and the Little Boy loves the hose! So he got all wet and dirty while he was having fun in the water and so we had to give him a rinse off bath and he loves being dried off, so he’s a very happy boy night now. And we were amused and had fun too.  (and love my run on sentences …. hard to care about proper grammar these days)

We still haven’t really eaten today. We had a celery stalk with peanut butter and some mini-pretzels as a snack but we need some real food right now, and then we’ll feed the dogs their supper. And they had a late breakfast and a lot of snacks already today, so they’ll be fine for a little while longer.

8:00pm: So we made some food, and ate the food, and the dogs were outside and they got fed, and we were outside again, and now we are all chillin’ in the Home Office again.

On The Menu: Breakfast for dinner again: 3 eggs over medium, bacon, quesadilla, celery&carrots, dill pickle, raspberries, and cran-raspberry-orange juice and an iced espresso to drink

“The story I’m about to share with you about Joe Biden is special — in fact, I’m fairly certain I’m the only living person left who actually witnessed it firsthand. It was about 16 years ago, and I was a young rabbi, brand-new to Delaware, on my way to lead a shiva minyan — a worship service following a death of a Jewish person. I was from California. Back then, I didn’t know Claymont, Delaware from Scranton, Pennsylvania.
A quick bit of background: When someone passes away in the Jewish faith, we observe seven days of mourning, called shiva. We gather a group of ten Jewish adults together — a minyan — to say the Mourners’ Kaddish. It usually happens in a person’s home — somewhere intimate. In this case, the deceased individual — her name was Mrs. Greenhouse, of blessed memory — had not been a person of means. She had lived in rent-controlled senior housing in a tall high-rise building off of Namaans Road. Her apartment had been too small to fit everyone into, so we conducted our worship service in the building’s communal laundry room, in the basement of the high-rise.
We assembled the ten elders together, and it was in this most humble of places that I began to lead the kaddish. Toward the end of the service, a door at the back of the laundry room opened, and who walks in but Senator Joe Biden, his head lowered, all by himself. I nearly dropped my prayer book in shock.
Senator Biden stood quietly in the back of the room for the duration of the service.
At the close of the kaddish, I walked over to him and asked the same question that must have been on everyone else’s mind: “Senator Biden — what are you doing here?”
And he said to me: “Listen, back in 1972, when I first ran for Senate, Mrs. Greenhouse gave $18 to my first campaign. Because that’s what she could afford. And every six years, when I’d run for reelection, she’d give another $18. She did it her whole life. I’m here to show my respect and gratitude.” Now, the number 18 is significant in the Jewish faith — its numbers spell out the Hebrew word chai, as in “to life, to life, l’chayim!” But it’s also a humble amount. Joe Biden knew that. And he respected that.
There were no news outlets at our service that day — no Jewish reporters or important dignitaries. Just a few elderly mourners in a basement laundry room. Joe Biden didn’t come to that service for political gain. He came to that service because he has character. He came to that service because he’s a mensch. And if we need anything right now when it comes to the leadership of our country — we need a mensch.
I know this is such a simple, small story. But I tell it to as many people as will listen to me.
Because I think that, in their heart of hearts, when people are trying to think about the decision they’ll make this year — this is the kind of story that matters.
Joe Biden is a mensch. We need a mensch.
Thanks for reading.”
— Rabbi Michael Beals of Delaware
