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.

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

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.

you can reach right up and touch the sky.” – Mungo Jerry

Mercury retrograde ends today!

  • National Chocolate Eclair Day
  • National Onion Rings Day
  • National Kissing Day
  • National HVAC Tech Day

“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.

1:15am: Nothing happened. We took the dogs outside a couple times.
We didn’t eat dinner…. and we also need to bake banana bread.
And now it’s Wednesday. Nothing happened Tuesday.

6:25am: Okay! We got the newspapers and made an iced espresso.
Drink Coffee. Drink Water. We took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs.
We took the dogs outside again. We did the dishes.
Now we’re chillin’ in the Home Office while we update this Blog Post.
We have to scoop the new poop (the joy of pet ownership!) we didn’t scoop,
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…..

but first a little “morning news”., if you can call it that.
Traffic. Okay. We are not going anywhere today….again. StayTheF*ckHome!

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

3:00pm: We took the dogs outside. We scooped the poop. The gardener came.

4:50pm: We waited for the gardener to finish, and then we took the dogs outside.

11:40pm: Recapping Wednesday.
We took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs. We took the dogs outside.
We watched the new episode of “I’ll Be Gone In The Dark” on HBO.
WE SHAVED OUR BEARD! No more “pandemic beard”…. YES, it just happened.
MIDNIGHT BAKING! We baked two loaves of banana bread.
Trying to bake it all day, finally done at 11:30pm.

205385742_4877306695629191_6309354696604313710_n
Time for dinner, but I just baked two loaves of banana bread,

And the whole house smells like hot fresh banana bread.
So, banana bread for dinner at midnight.

Yes it’s time for dinner…. but first,
Jimmy Kimmel and Cousin Sal are messing with Aunt Chippie again.

The housekeeper is here. We gave her Monday off., so there’s stuff for her to do.

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.

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?

Saturday, June 20, 2020 – HAPPY SUMMER SOLSTICE! 

78703902_3277191362307407_3505613304120737792_n

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!
105023520_10218042617960369_5406513817441201850_n

CBS started non-stop coverage yesterday on Juneteenth! Morons without masks!
The dumbest segment of our society on display…. RACISTS, BIGOTS, ANTI-SEMITES!
TRUMPERS. The Cult of Trump. These stupid people worship him.
They think he’s Jesus, And a Trump Rally is everything they dream of….
Stupid people (just like them) gathered together to worship the orange turd.
And now add the CoronaVirus! And remember the virus and wearing a mask is a Democratic political hoax. SO PLEASE TRUMPERS, DON”T WEAR A MASK TODAY!

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

105385926_3765759996783872_2347785181423977802_o

Breakfast for dinner again….

Move along….. nothing to see here.

“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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Willis_Haviland_Carrier-Technology_Society-01

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

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

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

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

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

Vintage Storage Find #2B – Disneyland Vacationland Summer 1977 Magazine (part 2)

Storage Find #2B – Disneyland Vacationland Summer 1977 Magazine (part 2)

NOTE: This Blog was originally written and constructed 12 JUNE 2014. This is the first time it’s been published. Enjoy!

I actually found this vintage Disneyland Vacationland magazine from 1977 before I found the “Sleeping Beauty” poster (see a previous blog) and have been posting pages on my facebook page http://www.facebook.com/joshwilltravel and sharing them with the Vintage Disneyland group. It was in MINT CONDITION and I was hesitant to even scan it for fear of damage.

In addition to the cover story on the Grand Opening of Space Mountain, the contents include articles on the Main Street Electrical Parade, the Golden Horseshoe Revue, “The Rescuers” and the Disneyland Costume Division. There are also vintage promotions for the Gerber Baby Center and Orville Reddenbacher Popcorn (both new additions in 1977) and cool retro ads for Disneyland, Wonder Bread/Hostess, GAF/Kodak and even other theme parks: Knotts, Magic Mountain, Lion Country Safari and Universal Studios.

It was just too cool not to share! So here is what I scanned:
