CV! Part 133 – ONE YEAR! (Friday)
WE ARE ALL “SAFER-AT-HOME”
DO NOT TRAVEL! STAY HOME AND STAY HEALTHY! ZERO CONTACT!
WEAR A (DOUBLE) MASK! WASH YOUR HANDS! CLEAN AND SANITIZE!

one-year

“Continue using all the tools available to help stop this pandemic as we learn more about how COVID-19 vaccines work in real-world conditions. Cover your mouth and nose with a mask when around others, stay at least 6 feet away from others, avoid crowds, avoid poorly ventilated spaces, and wash your hands often.​​” – CDC.gov

520000+ REPORTED COVID-19 DEATHS IN THE UNITED STATES
53400+ REPORTED COVID-19 DEATHS IN CALIFORNIA
as of March 4, 2021 at 12:27pm EST

Q: Do I need to wear a mask and avoid close contact with others
if I have gotten two doses of the vaccine?

THE ANSWER IS: YES!
Protect yourself and others,
follow these CDC recommendations:

  • Wear a mask over your nose and mouth
  • Stay at least 6 feet away from others
  • Avoid crowds
  • Avoid poorly ventilated spaces
  • Wash your hands often

It’s important for everyone to continue using all the tools available to help stop this pandemic as we learn more about how COVID-19 vaccines work in real-world conditions. Experts are also looking at how many people get vaccinated and how the virus is spreading in communities. We also don’t yet know whether getting a COVID-19 vaccine will prevent you from spreading the virus that causes COVID-19 to other people, even if you don’t get sick yourself. CDC will continue to update….as we learn more.

Together, COVID-19 vaccination and following CDC’s recommendations for how to protect yourself and others will offer the best protection from getting and spreading COVID-19. Additional information can be found at key things to know about the COVID-19 vaccine. (SEE THE LINK BELOW)

“If you are vaccinated against COVID-19, you may still be exposed to the virus.
After exposure, you can be infected with or ‘carry’ the virus that causes COVID-19
but not feel sick or have any symptoms. Experts call this ‘asymptomatic infection.'”
– CDC.gov

The Los Angeles Mask Mandate remains in force:

THE FOUR Ts: “Truth, Trust, Technology, and Transportation” – Mayor Eric Garcetti
THE FIFTH “T” IS TOTAL FAILURE. No plan for the homeless. Endless corruption.
The City of Los Angeles isn’t safe. Not from disease. Not from crime. Not from poverty.
People living on the streets, under overpasses, in doorways…. with NO SERVICES.
The City (and County) of Los Angeles
FAILS TO PROVIDE CLEAN AND SAFE LIVING CONDITIONS for the poor!
~66000 People are homeless in Los Angeles and there’s a deadly pandemic.
THEY STILL WANT TO RE-OPEN THE SCHOOLS AND HAVE SPORTING EVENTS!

We sent out our first warning in early February 2020.
And then another at the end of the month….
Screen Shot 2021-02-28 at 08.07.50
We had a doctor’s appointment and saw really sick people on March 4th.
And that was it, we’ve been writing about it everyday, and self-isolating.
It doesn’t feel like yesterday to us….
We are still fighting about ZERO CONTACT and Social Distancing with some people.
Nothing has changed since DAY ONE, one year later.
The CoronaVirus will still kill you and your family!

PEOPLE WHO THINK THE VACCINE
MAKES THEM IMMUNE WILL STILL DIE!

STAYTHEFUCKHOME! STAYTHEFUCKHOME! STAYTHEFUCKHOME!
ZERO CONTACT. ZERO CONTACT. ZERO CONTACT. ZERO CONTACT.
WEARAFUCKINGMASK! WEARAFUCKINGMASK! WEARAFUCKINGMASK!

US Surgeon General recommends:
Wearing two masks can improve fit & give you better protection from
COVID19.
Wear a disposable mask under a cloth mask.
THE MASK GOES OVER YOUR NOSE!
YOUR NOSE AND MOUTH ARE CONNECTED!
COVER YOUR NOSE AND MOUTH!

FUCK.

“National Day of Unplugging” promotes a 24-hour respite from technology!
(“Shomer Shabbos!” Just like Shabbat, from sundown-to-sundown
on Friday March 5th to Saturday March 6th)

1:11am: We just woke up.

9:15am: We made and ate a turkey and pepper jack cheese sandwich on a toasted bagel around 5:00am. And then we slept for a little bit. We woke up around 8:00am.
The dogs got fed and went outside. We drank a cup of espresso.
Drink Coffee. Drink Water. Don’t watch the news….

“The Shot Heard ‘Round The World”
On this day in 1770, the Boston Massacre (aka the “Incident on King Street”)
British soldiers from the Grenadier company of the 29th (Worcestershire) Regiment of Foote under the command of Captain Thomas Preston, killed five men and wounded six others in front of the Boston Customs House, who were throwing snowballs, sticks and stones at them. African American Crispus Attucks was the first man killed in the American Revolution.

The “tree guys” are here today. Pruning all the trees. And they started early.

12:25pm: Okay, we are fucking angry again.
Even if you are vaccinated YOU ARE NOT IMMUNE TO THE CORONAVIRUS!
People who think they’re immune are going to get people sick and they will die.
Even if you are vaccinated you must continue to SOCIAL DISTANCE.
Even if you are vaccinated you must continue to WEAR A DOUBLE MASK.
Even if you are vaccinated you must continue to WASH YOUR HANDS.
Even if you are vaccinated you must continue to ZERO CONTACT!

WTF? DO YOU REALLY THINK THE GOVERNMENT IS TELLING YOU THE TRUTH?
THE GENIE IS OUT OF THE BOTTLE! THIS IS AN EXTINCTION LEVEL EVENT!

THE NEW VARIANTS ARE MORE RESISTANT TO VACCINES AND ARE MORE DEADLY!
And there are new variants that have not been identified yet. THEY WILL KILL YOU TOO.

So, now let’s talk about CA EDD and BofA:
California Unemployment TOTAL FAIL and Bank of America’s CRIMINAL FRAUD!
Screen Shot 2021-02-13 at 11.46.46

The story so far: We finally filed for unemployment. We verified with ID.me again.
Our claim was approved and our account was funded with our first two weeks, and then our second two weeks of payments. And we received our EDD Debit Card.
WE COULD NOT ACTIVATE THE EDD DEBIT CARD on the BofA website.
We spent hours on the phone and on hold going around and around with EDD and BofA.
We were told by EDD that the hold on the account was released and BofA was notified.
We were told because of backlog, it could take 10-14 days for BofA to be notified.
WE MAILED A REQUEST FOR CHECKS TO BE MAILED BY EDD – Must Remove BofA!
Screen Shot 2021-03-02 at 19.38.11
We sent many messages and emails to EDD and BofA.
We filed online complaints with the FTC and FBI.
We called our Congressman, State Senator, and State Assemblyman too.
We contacted someone in the Assemblyman’s office who said they would help us!
We received a misspelled and confusing message from EDD that changed our check request back to EDD DEBIT CARD….
An EDD DEBIT CARD THAT WE CANNOT ACTIVATE!
and we cannot contact anyone at EDD or BofA to help us…..
Tony for BofA Regulatory Complaints called from an unidentified 877 toll number…
and left a message. We have called back twice and left messages on his voicemail.
We are still waiting for him to call again.
AND WE ARE STILL WAITING FOR THE EDD DEBIT CARD TO BE ACTIVATED!Screen Shot 2021-02-21 at 12.44.59
So, today we called the Assemblyman’s office again
(after messaging EDD again and leaving another message for Tony at BofA),
They are working remotely in the Assemblyman’s office, so we left a message with the office staffer, and then our contact called us back pretty quick, and told us she didn’t previously have our phone number or email….????) We told her our story of EDD FAILURE, sent her an email with a screenshot of the EDD message, and our wonderful contact said she would get back to us by the end of the day today! She has contacts at EDD and someone at BofA who can maybe do something.

We received an email from our contact in reply to the email and screenshot we sent her.


On The Menu: Shabbat Shalom everyone! We had quite a week….
and so we had quite a pizza (extra large sausage and meatball) delivered again.

We ate some pizza and took a shower. And then we fell asleep.
We woke up again after midnight and it was very early on Saturday morning!
And do you know what day it is on Saturday?

chinese-new-year-lantern
Not the Spring Lantern Festival (aka the Yuan Xiao Festival)
“Let there be light!” The lantern provides light.
And light leads the way forward, into the future, and pushes aside the darkness.
The Lantern Festival honors deceased ancestors and promotes reconciliation, peace and forgiveness. It was actually celebrated LAST FRIDAY on February 26 (on the 15th day of the first month of the Lunar calendar, the month of Yuan) in China and many other countries this year. The Lantern Festival is the final day of the traditional Chinese Lunar New Year celebration.
A traditional food for the Lantern Festival is a round rice ball filled with sweet red bean paste, sesame paste, or peanut butter called “Yuanxiao” and/or “Tangyuan”.

The Ides of March – March 15th
see the previous Blog Post

gettyimages_168966911

“Et tu Brute?”

Thanks to William Shakespeare and the play “Julius Caesar” we’ve all heard of The Ides of March. The story goes, in 44 BC a seer told Julius Caesar that his downfall would come no later than the Ides of March (March 15th). Caesar ignored him and later joked with the seer “The Ides of March have come.” The seer replied, “aye, Caesar; but not gone.” Caesar then attended the meeting of the Senate at the Theatre of Pompey, and was murdered by as many as 60 conspirators.

Gaius Julius Caeser (July 13, 100 BC – March 15, 44 BC)

Caesar:
Who is it in the press that calls on me? 
I hear a tongue, shriller than all the music, Cry ‘Caesar!’ 
Speak; Caesar is turn’d to hear.

Soothsayer:
Beware the Ides of March.
– Shakespeare

St. Patrick’s Day – March 17th

“Wherever you go and whatever you do,
May the luck of the Irish be there with you.”

March Equinox (Vernal Equinox) – March 20th on the west coast

The birth flower for March is the daffodil.
Birthstones for March are aquamarine and bloodstone which symbolize courage.

NOTE: We don’t like college basketball. We don’t like college sports.
Student athletes are taken advantage of by the university system.
College sports are a distraction and school rivalries cause division.
Corruption, payoffs and bribery are just 3 of the problems.
(see “pointshaving”, “Cheating” and “academic fraud” for more)
REMEMBER “THE FIX IS IN!”
