8:05am: We drank a cup of espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water. Damn the Man!

8:55am: Okay, now we have to get ready. we actually have to do something today.

 8:10pm: Recapping Thursday. We went to our new dentist.
Our old dentist retired, and we didn’t like the dentist he sold his practice to,
so we found a new dentist. And we had our first exam and cleaning today.
WE RODE IN AN ELEVATOR WITH ANOTHER PERSON!
For the first time in over a year, we rode in an elevator on the way in.
And we walked down the stairs on the way out.
We talked to strangers (the hygienist and nurses, and our new dentist)
for an extended period of time during the exam. It was really weird to be around other people.
And while we were unmasked in the office, we were sitting next to a germ-killing machine in the exam space. We also called from the parking lot before coming up to the office.
They were wearing masks and PPE, the office was clean and we felt pretty safe.
If you read our previous Blog Post about our exam with the other (new) dentist last week,
this was far and away a much better and much less panic-inducing experience.

It was a beautiful day outside today too. Warm and sunny.
We took a shower in the morning and put on pants and shoes,
we drove our car around the neighborhood a little bit.
And we filled up our gas tank….. and HOW IS GAS $4.00 A GALLON? WTF?

So then we went home and took a nap with the dogs. We drank an iced coffee.
We ate a quesadilla with salsa. We drank an iced coffee.
We were outside with the dogs more than twice. We fed the dogs their supper.
How did it get to be 8:30pm?
And now let’s play “What’s for Dinner?” – we need to eat something soon.
And we still need to celebrate Rex Manning Day properly.

Well, it took two weeks. And Trump did a lot of damage in those 13 days.
Trump should have been removed immediately!
Pence should have used the 25th Amendment.
Trump tried to kill him and his family.

1:00am: We are exhausted again. Too tired to sleep.
Really, we’ve tried going to bed twice tonight…. but our brain won’t turn off.
Watching Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon take their victory lap on CNN overnight.

In case you missed it:
We are on a forced Twitter Timeout for about 10 more hours.

AND BREAKING NEWS!
TRUMP NEVER HAD A PLAN FOR VACCINE DISTRIBUTION!
“OPERATION WARP SPEED” was TOTAL BULLSHIT!
400000 – 500000 Dead Americans!
NOW CAN WE DO CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY!

We posted this TRAVEL ALERT last year in November:

“Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Robert Redfield
appears to have violated more Federal Laws and Regulations
He is responsible for the deaths of THOUSANDS OF AMERICANS CITIZENS!

9:00am: We woke up and the dogs got fed. We drank an espresso.
We “finished” and published yesterday’s Blog Post “Part 109 – The Inauguration”.

2:00pm: Dr. Fauci released!
The Day 2 Press Conference at The White House was “refreshing”
EsSUxcVVgAAAavV

“If you don’t know the answer, don’t guess. Just say you don’t know the answer.”
— Dr. Anthony Fauci

Dr. Fauci (asked about jokes he made regarding feeling liberated from Trump):
“But you said I was joking about it, I was very serious. I wasn’t joking.
It is somewhat of a liberating feeling.”
EsSU0RjVkAEvQzP
Dr. Fauci (ON TRUMP INTIMIDATION):
“I take no pleasure at all of contradicting the President, so it was something you didn’t feel that you could actually say something and there wouldn’t be any repercussions about it”.

“Reporters have gotten more questions answered substantively in one and a half days than they had in four years.” – Mary Trump on Twitter

“As CDC Director, I promise to lead CDC through science, trust, transparency, and communication because this is the only way to have breakthroughs, deliver hope, and bring our nation back to full strength.” – Dr. Rochelle Walensky on Twitter

7:25pm: Day 2 was happening!
We made some food for lunch.
On The Menu: Bacon, lettuce, avocado, and pepperjack cheese sandwich on sourdough bread with a dill pickle. And an iced espresso to drink.
We watched too much news again. We took a nap. We were outside with the dogs.

President Joe Biden has been a busy Chief Executive today.
President Joe Biden signed 10 Executive Orders today!

DEMOCRATS PLEASE READ THIS: “unsolicited advice to President Biden and Senate Leader Schumer on how to deal with McConnell, McCarthy, and the rest of Congressional Republicans: Give no quarter. None. Destroy them at every opportunity. Because this is precisely what they would, and will, do to you.”

21st minute of the 21st hour of the 21st day of the 21st year of the 21st Century!

11:00pm: We ate some chocolate cookies and drank another espresso early on.
Then we cued up “Wonder Woman ’84” and drank an iced espresso.
We haven’t watched it yet. We’re watching YouTube vids.
And we’re hungry now. We made some food.

On The Menu: Thai BBQ Chicken and fried rice leftovers with added broccoli and a mango nectar to drink at midnight. Full now.

18199332_1085108468260691_7272568898636625695_nTRAVEL ALERT! The CDC will now require preflight testing of everyone traveling to the US from any country by air. All international travelers (including US Citizens, and private and charter flights) flying into the United States will have to provide proof of a negative Covid-19 test before boarding flights begining January 26, 2021.

The Voice Of America’s Director Robert Reilly was FIRED today by President Joe Biden and escorted out by Security Guards. The US Agency for Global Media announced today that VOA’s director and his deputy had been removed from their positions and that the head of the Office of Cuba Broadcasting had resigned. VOA Dir. Robert Reilly was FIRED. The Trump stooge demoted a reporter last week for questioning Pompeo and was removed her from assignment. Biden also demanded the resignation of Trump’s stooge Michael Pack the CEO of the USAGM who resigned after Biden was inaugurated. Reilly’s deputy, Elizabeth Robbins, was also escorted out of VOA’s Headquarters by security guards. HAHA! Veteran VOA journalist, Kelu Chao, will head the USAGM on an interim basis.

7 Senate Democrats filed an ethics complaint about the behavior of Senators Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley “related to the deadly insurrection at the US Capitol on January 6.”

131380806_10224007344355252_726853013807487886_n

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

131155270_10223989824837275_6898127772267718134_n

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

131909251_10224009711094419_3218920318507754980_n

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

Sunday, December 20, 2020 – SUNDAY! SUNDAY!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Riviera Hotel & Casino

We worked on a film (you’ve probably never heard of or seen it) called “Eternity” in 1990.

We met many famous people: Jon Voight, Armand Assante, Wilford Brimley, Lainie Kazan, Kaye Ballard, Steven Keats, Eileen Davidson, John P. Ryan, Charles Knapp, Eugene Roche, Robert Carricart, Frankie Valli and Joey Villa.

We became good friends with Joey Villa and he invited us to visit him, first at his home in Beverly Hills which doubled as his booking office, and then at the Riviera Hotel and Casino on The Strip in Fabulous Las Vegas where he was performing. He was friends with Meshulim Riklis and Pia Zadora, who owned the resort at the time, and was a headliner in “Splash!” in the big showroom at the Riviera for nine years. Joey also booked acts, hosted and headlined in the comedy room at the hotel.

Joey Villa (Joseph Charles Villani) was born on March 19, 1937. He was an actor and comedian, known for “Heat” (1986 with Burt Reynolds), “Eternity” (1990) and “They Call Me Bruce?” (1982). He died at the age of 68 on December 16, 2005 in Las Vegas, Nevada from complication from a stroke.

Villa, a native of New York, appeared in just a handful of movies, but he made his mark as a stand-up comedian, performing in Las Vegas as well as clubs around the country. He also spent many years performing on cruise ships, and eventually booked acts for the ocean liners. Villa opened for many famous entertainers, including Nat King Cole, Paul Anka, the Pointer Sisters and Diana Ross and the Supremes. He was a frequent guest on talk shows, including “The Merv Griffin Show” and “The Mike Douglas Show.” Villa was a close friend of both Frank Sinatra and of Sinatra’s “right-hand man” Jilly Rizzo. He gave one of the eulogies at Rizzo’s funeral when the celebrity restaurateur was killed in a car accident by a drunk driver in 1992 in Palm Springs, California.

Joey’s famous opening line from his stand-up comedy act for over 40 years was, “I’m going to live until I die” ……and then he would drop to the stage floor. Every audience roared with laughter as Joey stood up after falling down and began his show. He kept the audience laughing throughout his entire performance. “At the end they always applauded and cheered and left smiling, feeling they were parting as friends.”

“Joey was loved by everyone, from Sinatra on down,” Larry Manetti said.

Villa had no children and died at a local hospice. Survivors include three sisters. Joey and his former wife divorced in 1982 and remained close friends. “He was a gentle man, a much kinder man than most people knew,” she said. “He was born to make people laugh — and he made thousands laugh and applaud, and for a very short time they would forget their problems.”

Nelson Sardelli, a close friend of Villa, said the comedian will be cremated and his ashes cast into the sea. “He requested that there not be any services…He was a gentle person…Sometimes he looked like he was looking for approval…A little accolade, that’s want he wanted.” One friend described him as “happy on the outside, but sad on the inside. He was sort of a lonely person, but at the same time loved to be around people and make them laugh. But I think that is the way most comedians are.”

The Evolution of Las Vegas!

The Evolution of Las Vegas!

Vegas in the 1980’s before the Mirage opened in 1989 was a wild place! The last Casino holdouts of “Old Vegas” (before they tried to turn it into a “family friendly” destination and eventually turned it into Disneyland for Adults when the big corporations took over) were the main attractions. It was all about GAMBLING (not gaming) in the 80’s and they “comped” players to rooms, meals, shows and more without a plastic card. It really was “Sin City”! You could drive The Strip from Tropicana to Sahara without traffic and there were still undeveloped empty lots on The Strip!

There wasn’t a Fremont Street Experience, there was Fremont Street and Downtown Vegas, uncovered and dirty. Strip Clubs, showgirls, 99 cent buffets, free drinks, cigarette girls, $2 Blackjack…. even then we preferred The Strip.

Back in the day, we stayed and played at many of the classic hotels and casinos.

We saw “Seigfried and Roy” at the Mirage when it was the new joint on the strip.

Pierino Ronald “Perry” Como (May 18, 1912-May 12, 2001) was an Italian American singer and television personality. During a career spanning more than half a century, he recorded exclusively for RCA Victor for 44 years after signing with the label in 1943.

Ermenigildo “Jilly” Rizzo  (May 6, 1917-May 6, 1992) – On his 75th birthday, Rizzo was killed when his car was hit by a drunk driver in Rancho Mirage, California

“Crazy Girls” at the Riviera Hotel

 

Dec 19, 2005 3:20 AM
In fond memory of Joey Villa
Classic comedian and longtime friend, Joey Villa, has left us at age 68. He passed last weekend at a local hospice. Joey had suffered a stoke in May, and despite rehabilitation, never fully recovered. He was a classic Las Vegas comic, a mainstay at the Riviera and an opening act for some of the top headliners ever to play the Strip including Frank Sinatra.
I first met him in New York and he always gave me great advice during my many attempts to make it big locally. He would always say, “Kid, you’d be better off going back to New York, they’ll never accept you here.” His pal Nelson Sardelli announced the sad news in an e-mail, saying Villa had gone to “the main room in Heaven,” where he was booked “for eternity, with options.”
