FUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCK

1:50pm: Well, we really felt like sh*t this morning.
We made an iced espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.
We did some morning stuff, but then went back to bed.
We woke up. We got the mail. The dogs are chillin’ in the bedroom.
The gardeners are here working on the backyard landscaping today.

NOTE: TOTALLY SUCKS waking up and your first real thought of the day is…
“FUCK, DO HAVE COVID-19?” because people aren’t being safe around you.
It can ruin your whole morning, not to mention your whole fucking day.

FUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCK
FUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCK

2:40pm: We made an iced espresso and retreated back to the Home Office.
We are not allowed to be mad, but WE ARE ABSOLUTELY ENRAGED.

Here’s a little rant for the supposedly intelligent people:
WHY THE FUCK ARE YOU SOCIALIZING WITH STRANGERS?
WHY ARE YOU GOING TO – AND THROWING PARTIES?
WHY ARE YOU TALKING TO STRANGERS WITHOUT A MASK?
WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU?
WHY ARE YOU GOING TO THE MARKET?
WHY ARE YOU SHOPPING IN PUBLIC?
WHY ARE YOU TRAVELING? WHY ARE YOU MAKING PLANS?
THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC IS NOT OVER!
YOU CAN STILL GET SICK, AND YOU MIGHT DIE.
YOU CAN GET YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS SICK, AND THEY MIGHT DIE.
AFTER 18 MONTHS WHY ARE YOU BEING STUPID AND CARELESS?
THIS IS A DEADLY DISEASE. YOU MIGHT DIE.
AND THERE CAN BE LONG-TERM CONSEQUENCES IF YOU DON’T DIE.
THE DELTA VARIANT IS MORE CONTAGIOUS, MORE INFECTIOUS,
AND THERE ARE MORE VARIANTS COMING…..
THE GOVERNMENT HAS FAILED TO PROTECT THE PUBLIC.
THE GOVERNMENT IS LYING TO YOU, THEY ARE NOT BEING HONEST.
STAYTHEFUCKHOME! STAYTHEFUCKHOME! STAYTHEFUCKHOME!
ZERO CONTACT. ZERO CONTACT. ZERO CONTACT. ZERO CONTACT.
WE HAVE BEEN SAYING THIS SINCE FEBRUARY OF 2020.
WEARAFUCKING(DOUBLE)MASK! WEARAFUCKING(DOUBLE)MASK!
DON’T STOP SOCIAL DISTANCING! WTF? YOU MIGHT DIE. End of rant.
Really can’t believe we have to keep saying this to “smart” people.

There was a cricket in the house. And it was loud.

The 243rd day of the year and the LAST day of August!
And technically, alcohol is a solution.

12:56am: We just watched “The Doorman” which was a “Die Hard”
in a old hotel under construction homage…. RIP-OFF!
It was okay, Jean Reno as the bad guy holding hostages,
while a guy tries to open a safe, while a guest “Hero” in the wrong place,
at the wrong time, overcomes obstacles and kills all the bad guys.
Oh, damn …..SPOILER ALERT? It was okay.
Sometimes you roll the dice, and take your chances.

3:00am: We made a quick bite to eat.
On The Menu: Popcorn shrimp with Korean BBQ sauce

9:45am: Breaking News: Secret deal with the Taliban? Really?
Okay, we went to sleep after 5:00am and we woke up around 8:30am.

Miss Donut is where the robbery scene in “Boogie Nights” was filmed.

And we went to FOUR thrift stores today.
We were around way too many people!
We tried to maintain and stay calm, BUT. NO.
It doesn’t feel safe to be out in public around strangers.
We are not comfortable browsing/shopping because of other people.
So we bought some stuff, retail therapy fail, and then we drove home.

5:55am: We slept a little. We woke up.
We drank a cup of espresso and ate the cinnamon roll.

In case you missed it, Dead & Co. played the Grateful Dead’s “Woodstock Set” 52 years after Woodstock in Bethel, NY. – St. Stephen, Mama Tried>fade out, Dark Star, High Time, and Turn On Your Lovelight

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZ

12:50pm: okay, it’s ThrowbackThursday. And it’s almost 1:00pm.
We are chillin’ with the dogs in the Home Office. So let’s recap today.
We slept for a little bit. We woke up late. The dogs went outside. 
The dogs got fed. The newspapers got got. We got the mail.
We took the dogs outside. We made an iced espresso.
We put on pants, to go do more errands, but then we took them off.
The housekeeper is here, should we be worried about the Delta Virus?
DO YOU TRUST THE GOVERNMENT TO TELL YOU THE TRUTH?
Really? After going out yesterday, we just want to ZERO CONTACT again.

“I’m here from the government and I’m here to help.”
– 10 Words that should scare the sh*t out of you

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

“Wave That Flag!” The United States of America

12 United States Service Members were killed in suicide bombings in Afghanistan.
17 more wounded. So, how about a press conference with General Mackenzie?
Kabul is in total chaos. 1500 US Citizens remain? Really? 3000 Troops? Really?
Evacuations continue as per the Taliban…. August 31 Deadline…. TOTAL FAIL.
TRUMP SOLD OUT THE UNITED STATES. AND THE GOP TRAITORS NEED TO STFU.
BEFORE THEY SAY SHIT THERE MUST BE PUBLIC HEARINGS ABOUT JANUARY 6th!

200227960_6691935964150658_5316607221665595579_n

1:20pm: VERY HOT outside – 100+ DEGREES today and for the next 4 days!
“WE’RE HAVING A HEATWAVE” so stay inside. AND IT SMELLS LIKE FIRE AND SMOKE!
Big fires burning up north, and a big fire burning to the south in San Berdoo.
AIR QUALITY IS UNHEALTHFUL TO DEADLY in some places.
So, we ate the last donut. No shame. We indulged ourself on pastries and sugar.
Now back to our regularly scheduled diet. NO WE ARE NOT DIETING.
But we have lost a bunch of weight since the “pre-pandemic” days. 15+ pounds!
Almost 20, but we are fluctuating between 15 and 20 and we don’t want to brag.

2:10pm: Nothing is happening today. Almost took a nap.

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZ (Bark Bark Bark) FUCK.

It’s National Dog Day! We love our pack. Such good doggies.
44314221_2496352830391268_7215479851086512128_n

11:00pm: The dogs got fed. The dogs went outside. We drank an iced espresso with dinner.
On The Menu: We ordered a pizza delivery. Extra-large with sausage and meatball.

The dogs went outside. The dogs were chillin’ while we ate.
We chatted online with an old friend (something we never do) for a long time.

We miss having real live friends….. but do they miss me?

We watched “Suicide Squad” directed by James Gunn 
WHY? The DC Comic movies are all pretty bad.
And compared to the new Marvel superhero films, they totally suck.
This one was okay, ultra-violent, full of gore, and without purpose.
Weird Tongue-in-cheek humor to desensitize the viewer to the carnage.
EXCEPT TO SELL TICKETS AT THE BOX OFFICE AND PAY-PER-VIEW…
(and this was the Suicide Squad REBOOT…. there’s already one with Will Smith)
NOTE: As a young collector, before there were any films, 
we always liked the Marvel Comic much better than the DC Comics.


COVID-19 is still the leading cause of death in the United States.
635000+ Reported Deaths in the United States from COVID-19
as of Thursday.
65480+ Reported Deaths in California from COVID-19 as of Thursday night.
53720+ Reported Deaths in New York from COVID-19 as of Thursday night.
(these are the reported numbers, the true numbers are much higher)

CV! Part 191 – DO NOT TRAVELTUESDAY! (Tuesday)
WEARAFUCKING(DOUBLE)MASK! STAYTHEFUCKHOME!
DO NOT TRAVEL! DON’T STOP SOCIAL DISTANCING! 

TravelAlert-614x201

Americans should not travel to France, Israel, Iceland, 
and other destinations regardless of vaccination status! 
– per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

THE UNITED STATES WILL CONTINUE CURRENT TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS.
The CDC advises Americans against travel to the United Kingdom!

Direct travel of noncitizens from Ireland and Greece to the United States has been suspended since January 25, 2021, under an executive order limiting travel from multiple countries. The White House recently said those restrictions would remain in place amid surging cases from the Delta variant.

CDC moved these new destinations
to its highest travel advisory on August 9: 

“Level 4: very high level of COVID-19”:
Aruba, Eswatini, France, French Polynesia, Iceland, Israel, and Thailand

16 new travel destinations were added to the
CDC’s “Level 4: Covid-19 Very High” category on August 2:
Andorra, Curaçao, Gibraltar, Greece, Guadeloupe, Iran, Ireland, 
Isle of Man, Kazakhstan, Lesotho, Libya, Malta, Martinique, 
Saint Barthelemy, Saint Martin, and the US Virgin Islands.
Other travel destinations in the
“Level 4: Covid-19 Very High” category as of August 3:
Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Maldives, The Netherlands, Panama, Portugal, 
Seychelles, Spain, the United Arab Emirates, and the United Kingdom.

Travelers should avoid travel to those destinations!
And anyone who must travel should be fully vaccinated!
CDC’s Risk Level for destinations are located
on the travel recommendations page on the government website.

And yesterday, France began requiring a “Virus Pass”
for cafes, restaurants and long-distance travel.

It’s World Lion Day today!

TEMPUS FUGIT. TIME FLIES.
Growing older means sad goodbyes.
Everyone dies. Everyone dies.

HAPPINESS IS A FUNDAMENTAL HUMAN GOAL!
DON’T WORRY! BE HAPPY TODAY!
The three key aspects that will lead to our well-being and happiness:
an end to poverty, a reduction of inequality, and the protection of our planet.

Tuesday, August 10, 2021 – National Lazy Day!
Take a break, Relax, Take a nap, NO WORK TODAY.

Lebowskilimo_6

“I won’t say a hero, ’cause, what’s a hero? But sometimes, there’s a man. And I’m talkin’ about the Dude here. Sometimes, there’s a man, well, he’s the man for his time and place. He fits right in there. And that’s the Dude, in Los Angeles. And even if he’s a lazy man – and the Dude was most certainly that. Quite possibly the laziest in Los Angeles County, which would place him high in the runnin’ for laziest worldwide. But sometimes there’s a man, sometimes, there’s a man. Aw. I lost my train of thought here. But… aw, hell. I’ve done introduced him enough.”
– The Stranger’s narration from “The Big Lebowski”

4:05am: We woke up a little after 2:00am. 
We just drank an iced espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.

6:50am: And so we slept for about two hours….. And then we woke up.
We just drank a cup of espresso and published our new Blog Post.
“CV! Part 190 – The Days Between part two” from this weekend.
We took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs. We took the dogs outside.
We got the newspapers. And the roofers are still working across the street.

It’s World Lion Day! (scientific name: Panthera leo)
12801377_1326055424087687_3426608033148370077_n

9:05am: We took the dogs outside again. We made an iced espresso.
We ate a toasted bagel with cream cheese. We’re chillin’ again.

NEW YORK GOVERNOR ANDREW CUOMO IS RESIGNING RIGHT NOW!
He loves New York. And he loves the ladies too…. What a DISGRACE.
(and his resignation will be effective in 14 days) Buh-Bye.
And the Senate PASSED the “Bi-partisan” Infrastructure Bill today.

10:05am: Credit Cards. WTF? Foreign Call Centers. WTF?
Why does it always take two calls to fix a problem?
And why do they always leave you ON HOLD until you hang up?
And why do you always have to threaten to cancel to get it done?

11:05am: Yeah, it’s a beautiful day outside. We drank that iced espresso.
11:35am: Tech in the house fixing stuff this morning. Gone before noon.

It’s National Spoil Your Dog Day! 
(but that’s everyday around our house) And we took them outside again.
233591122_5020870447939481_1858769690988117657_n

1:00pm: We made another iced espresso.

3:35pm: And so nothing is happening today.
And that’s appropriate for National Lazy Day, right?

“What’s the difference between
praying in church and praying in a casino?

….. In a casino, they really mean it.”

10:25pm: So we took a nap with the dog after they got fed.
The dogs went outside. The dogs got fed. The dogs went outside.
We fell asleep and now we’re awake again. And it’s time for food soon.

It’s also National S’mores Day!

August 1st is Jerry Garcia’s birthday.
August 9th is the anniversary of his death in 1995.
The nine days from August 1st to 9th, are known as “The Days Between”
named for the Grateful Dead’s song on “So Many Roads” released in 1999.
CELEBRATE THE LIFE AND MUSIC OF JERRY GARCIA!

IMG_7710

Jerry Garcia’s Hand – UC Santa Cruz McHenry Library – Grateful Dead Special Collection

First LIVE performance of “The Days Between”:
February 22, 1993, at the Oakland Alameda Coliseum.

There were days
And there were days
And there were days between
Summer flies and August dies
And the world grows dark and mean
Comes the shimmer of the moon
On black infested trees
The singing man is at his song
The holy on their knees
The reckless are out wrecking
The timid plead their pleas
And no one knows much more of this
Than anyone can see, anyone can see
– “The Days Between” by Jerry Garcia and Robert Hunter
 


Monday, August 2, 2021 – It’s the 214th day of the year!

mktplmonpromo

NOTE: The TSA reported more than 2.2Million travelers at US Airports
on Sunday, the highest number since the start of the CoronaVirus pandemic.

1:30am: We just finished recapping Sunday night and (we just published)
our previous Blog Post “CV! Part 188 – Happy Jerry Day!”
And we just outlined and set up this Blog Post too.
Time for breakfast for dinner at 2:00am again.

4:20am: We still haven’t eaten dinner…. now it’s breakfast.
We’ve been working on a couple new Blog Posts and we got caught up.
Now we are going to the kitchen and we are going to do some cooking.

There were days
There were days
And there were days besides
When phantom ships with phantom sails
Set to sea on phantom tides
Comes the lightning of the sun
On bright unfocused eyes
The blue of yet another day
A springtime wet with sighs
A lonesome candle lingers
In the land of lullabies
Where headless horsemen vanish
With wild and lonely cries, lonely cries
 

8:15am: We finally made and ate some food around 6:00am.
We hope you’ll read the future Blog Posts we were working on last night.
We drank another iced espresso. We took the dogs outside.
We fed the dogs. We took the dogs outside.
And we got the newspapers. We still haven’t slept.

On The Menu: 3 eggs over medium, bacon, avocado,
watermelon, dill pickle, and a quesadilla with salsa verde
229033140_4994993567193836_6470418117063646781_n

9:05am: MONDAY MORNING PURSUIT! We were watching for 4 minutes…..
9:09am: The Suspect stopped and surrendered, and now the Suspect is in custody.

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ. Crashed Hard.

2:05pm: We waited for the housekeeper to arrive, we got the mail,
then we went to bed with the dogs and we slept until about 2:00pm.
We took the dogs outside after the housekeeper finished.

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.

7:15pm: We slept some more. Another afternoon nap. It was nice.
We woke up. We drank an iced espresso. The dogs went outside and got fed.

USA! USA! USA! GO TEAM USA! TOKYO 2020 OLYMPICS!
And we were watching the Tokyo 2020 2021 Olympics again.
NBCs coverage totally SUCKS. (and they have a tie-in with Snapchat? WTF?)
Have no idea what event we are watching or who the players are.
NBC thinks that we care about athletes who we don’t even know…..
IT’S AN INTERNATIONAL SPORTS COMPETITION (not just about USA athletes).
AND SO MANY FUCKING COMMERCIALS! It’s just about the advertising now.
And currently they are running the Women’s 400m Hurdles in a MONSOON!
It’s pouring rain on the outdoor Track and Field events.
And we are not entertained, so it’s time to change the channel.

And there was one West German police officer killed
in the control tower during a gunfight with the terrorists:
  • Anton Fliegerbauer

9:25pm: We took the dog outside. We played with the dog.
We watched some public television (not the sh*tty Olympic coverage)
and we worked on this and our other new Blog Posts.
We just put the dog in the bedroom and now it’s time for our dinner.

NOTE: We did not eat our dinner on Monday.
We didn’t eat anything all day after our early morning breakfast.
Why aren’t we hungry?

It’s National Watermelon Day!

7:10am: Tuesday morning. We just woke up.
Watched the end of an early morning pursuit. 
They stopped and surrendered. Two suspects in custody.
231905249_4997995413560318_3027405380708839971_n
The dogs went outside. The dogs got fed.
We made and drank our first cup of espresso of the day.
Drink Coffee. Drink Water. Eat Watermelon.

8:10am: The CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC is all over the news this morning.
Are you Fully Vaccinated*? GET VACCINATED NOW if you haven’t yet!

*FULLY VACCINATED means TWO WEEKS after the second dose! 
You are not Fully Vaccinated after the first dose!
You are not Fully Vaccinated until TWO WEEKS AFTER THE SECOND DOSE!

10:35am: We made another cup of espresso. We got the mail.

12:00Noon: We took the dogs outside. It’s HOT and it’s going to get HOTTER.
We are chillin’ with the dogs in the Home Office and thinking about food.
And we watched too much “news” this morning.

12:40pm: And we made another iced espresso.
Time for a some Olympics. And also time for some lunch.

1:30pm: Olympic Basketball on NBC!
Spain (España) v. United States of America (USA) 
USA wins 95-81….. the game was over 14 HOURS AGO. “Spoiler Alert”
Way to go NBC. Watching the 2nd Quarter now. But GAME OVER.

A short Mini-Rant because this has been bugging us all morning:
KTLA channel 5 in Los Angeles was also warning “Spoiler Alert” this morning.
Mentally challenged US gymnast Simone Biles won the bronze medal for
the individual balance beam event after withdrawing from other events.
BUT if the news anchor says “Spoiler Alert”
and the inset photo is Simone Biles
holding a medal, and the caption reads: 
SIMONE BILES WINS BRONZE!
It is pretty much a “SPOILER” instead of a “Spoiler Alert”, right?

8:05pm: Recapping Tuesday afternoon. It was fuckin’ HOT.
We got dressed and went out and got lunch “to go” at The Stand.
We didn’t eat dinner last night, and we only ate a dill pickle this morning.
We brought the food home and ate. Then we fell asleep.
On The Menu: ABC Burger (avocado, bacon, cheese), fries, and a chocolate shake.
233106338_4999786393381220_4468523158237042356_n
Read our previous Blog Post “Dinner at The Stand in Encino” from 2016!
We paid $24 and change for this lunch and it was okay, not great.
We should have gotten a burger at The Habit Grill a few blocks away,
it would have cost half of what we paid, and been better.
Also, the interior of the restaurant is not COVID-19 safe. 
TOO MANY PEOPLE TOO CLOSE TOGETHER AT THE REGISTER AREA!
We were very uncomfortable while we were inside with so many people.

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.

There was a pursuit yesterday, the guy got sideways and then kept going! Then he pulled over and surrendered. And there was a pursuit this morning, they stopped and surrendered. And then there was just another pursuit. She tried to escape the helicopter in a total POS. She ran her beater car/home into the ground and had to stop and surrender too, and she left her pitbull in the car for the CHP and Animal Control to deal with.

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.

Tuesday night now. We slept for awhile. We woke up.
The dogs went outside. The dogs got fed.
We got a coke (Coca-Cola in a can) with ice and drank it.
We took the dog outside again. 

10:00pm: We just found out the little boy, the “Love Sponge” passed.
We are so very sad. May his memory be a blessing.
And may the Four Winds blow him safely home.
21034489_1935595023133721_6117460593163701835_n

We’re just done for the night. 

There were days
There were days
And there were days I know
When all we ever wanted
Was to learn and love and grow
When we grew into our shoes
And told them where to go
Walked halfway ’round the world
On promise of the glow
Stood upon a mountain top
Walked barefoot in the snow
Gave the best we had to give
How much we’ll never know, never know

COAST GUARD DAY! It’s the United States Coast Guard’s Birthday!
Commemorate the founding of the United States Coast Guard today!
Created as the Revenue Cutter Service on August 4, 1790,
with ten ships to combat smuggling and enforce tariff laws,
by Secretary of the Treasury Alexander Hamilton.

2:45am: THERE IS A MOUSE IN THE HOUSE…. WTF?
It must have come in through the hole in the screen door.
We heard a rustling noise from the desk behind us.
We turned around, and there was a mouse on top of the printer!
And it jumped behind the printer and disappeared,
so we cleared the desk behind us of stuff and moved the printer,
NO MOUSE of course.
So it may have escaped the way it got in (good),
or it may still be in the Home Office hiding (not good),
the dog didn’t even wake up, and so we put him in the cage
while we moved everything from on top and under the desk.
Needed dusting anyway, right? Time to reorganize the back desk?
BONUS: We also found some important papers we were looking for.
BONUS: We got access to another power strip + more outlets.
And we think we might move the printer to another place….
Might even create a real “studio background” for Zoom/Youtube.

poppingchampagne

5:40am: The mouse is still in the Home Office….
We almost got it by the dog’s water bowl but didn’t take the shot.
(we currently have a Louisville Slugger at the ready)
So, it might have found it’s way into the closet (not good).
We have used the time this morning, since we aren’t going to sleep,
to start the ‘Spring Cleaning’ that never happened during the Pandemic…
and so now we are working at “getting sh*t organized.”

National Raisin Bran Day 

7:20am: We got the newspapers.
We made and drank a cup of espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.
8:20am: The NBC Tokyo Olympics coverage continues to suck.
We had another shot at the mouse, but we didn’t want to kill it.
We ate a slice of banana bread.

Cheers! It’s National White Wine Day! 
Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc. Pinot Grigio, Riesling, Chablis,
Chenin Blanc, Sancerre, Albarino, Cava, Champagne, and many more!

Sunday Champagne Brunch – Mimosas all around!

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZZ.

12:10pm: We fell asleep and slept. 
We just woke up and the Home Office is a mess from this morning.
Chore Boy has a lot of stuff to do now. And it’s HOT out today.

1:40pm: We made an iced espresso. We vacuumed one time.
Watching Olympics Women’s Skateboarding while we clean.
We vacuumed two times. 

3:50pm: The Home Office cleaning crusade continues.
4:30pm: Why do we have so many toys? And so many mugs?
4:45pm: FUCK. 
5:15pm: FUCK. Time is just flying by today. Another ten minutes gone.

6:40pm: The dogs got fed. The dogs went outside. We ate some food.
On The Menu: Fried chicken breast and corn on the cob.
And a KrispyKreme glazed donut for dessert.

Today was National Single Working Woman’s Day“YOU GO GIRL!”

champagne_uncorking_photographed_with_a_high_speed_air-gap_flash

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZZ. We fell asleep with the dog.

8:50pm: We woke up and took the dog outside.
No sign of the mouse yet today.
We hoped it escaped through the hole in the screen door…..

9:45pm: NOPE. The mouse didn’t escape today.
WARNING: ANIMAL LOVERS SHOULD SKIP THIS NEXT PARAGRAPH.

We just caught it. We went to the kitchen and made an iced espresso. 
When we got back to the Home Office, we heard it moving around inside an open top box, and then we saw it, and we tried to cover the box, trap the mouse, to take it outside. But then it jumped out of the box, and then it ran behind the headboard of the bed. We trapped it between the wall and the headboard, and then it quickly succumbed to “blunt force trauma”. RIP. We bagged it and trashed it, and the mouse problem is now history.

There were days
And there were days
And there were days between
Polished like a golden bowl
The finest ever seen
Hearts of Summer held in trust
Still tender, young and green
Left on shelves collecting dust
Not knowing what they mean
Valentines of flesh and blood
As soft as velveteen
Hoping love would not forsake
The days that lie between, lie between

It’s National Underwear Day!
(so, please don’t go “commando”)
Remembering Marilyn Monroe today.

Marilyn-Monroe-Full-Suite

1:11am: Well we cleaned the Home Office a lot today.
And we took care of the mouse problem.
And Chore Boy will be back later to do more stuff.  
AND ALSO, WE HAVE TOO MUCH STUFF.
So, we got stuff here back to normal for now.
And we have the Olympics on with the sound off.
NBC REPEAT (sh*tty) COVERAGE of earlier today:
“The thrill of victory, the agony of defeat” 
Listening to music, watching YouTube vids, 
working on this Blog Post tonight.

4:20am: We just made and drank an iced espresso. Yes, we’re still awake.
Watching the Olympics Track and Field. Shotput and Triple Jump.
We watched running, and hurdles yesterday.
But we still haven’t seen a full event, because the NBC coverage is CHAOS.
Don’t know any of the athletes, but they are incredible physical specimens!
(We’ve seen pieces of diving, gymnastics, golf, skateboarding, soccer,
volleyball, basketball, and now track and field – but we missed so many events!) 
225013274_10158596596193369_3607434370607849290_n

And “mental health” is the media hot word this week.
Thank you Simone Biles.
SEE OUR PREVIOUS BLOG POSTS.

8:25am: And hello morning. We didn’t sleep. Don’t think we slept.
The dogs were barking. The dogs went outside. The dogs got fed.
We got the newspapers.
We drank an iced espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.

Okay, before the dogs woke up, we made breakfast.
We had a bacon cheeseburger and fries left in the fridge.
On The Menu: We made a bacon cheeseburger and fries BURRITO
We took the 2 patties, bacon and cheese and chopped them.
Normally we get lettuce, but it look like they screwed up the order again.
No lettuce. We put the stuff on two flour tortillas, added fries, 
added cheese, and heated it up in the toaster oven.
Then we added red onion and salsa verde and ate it up. Pretty good.

Giant-Smiley-Face15

So now we’re chilling’ with the dogs in the Home Office.
And thinking about a nap….

11:15am: No nap yet.

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZZ.

2:50pm: And we’re awake again.
We fell asleep and took that nap.
Why don’t they play the washboard anymore?
Just a random question.
We took the dog outside. It’s HOT out again.
3:15pm: We made an iced espresso.
Drink More Coffee. Drink More Water. 

Wild fires are raging up in Northern California and Oregon. 
Yuba, Placer and Nevada Counties are burning.
The historic Gold Rush town of Greenfield was totally destroyed by fire today.
100 large fires have burned 1,947,811+ acres in 14 states!
Screen Shot 2021-08-05 at 15.21.06

 

4:45pm: We made an iced mocha/coffee shake with vanilla ice cream.
And we are hoping for a high speed pursuit right now.
Our Top Story Tonight! CORONAVIRUS! DELTA VARIANT!
“COVID SURGE!”  Vaccine Requirements and Mandates!
xxxxxxxxxxxxxx NOPE. Not going to go there now.

5:45pm: We took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs supper.
We took the dogs outside. FUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCK!

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX Okay, now we’re done. 

Another short rant:
FFS. It’s COVID-19. Delta Variant. (so sick of this now)
Remove restrictions, relax requirements, and pretend the pandemic is over….
AND THEN WONDER WHY THE DISEASE IS SPREADING. Hmmmm?
Open indoor dining, gyms, public spaces.
Have concerts, parties, and sporting events.
Send children back-to-school.
AND THEN WONDER WHY THE DISEASE IS SPREADING. Hmmmm?
Tell people it’s okay to take off masks, and that it’s okay to gather again.
Half the population is still not FULLY VACCINATED! WTF?
HAVE YOU SEEN THE PICTURES FROM LAS VEGAS?
Unmasked, unvaccinated tourists by the thousands in public!
And then everyone goes home with the virus to wherever on Sunday.
AND THEN WONDER WHY THE DISEASE IS SPREADING. Hmmmm?

Now that the Delta Variant is killing the unvaccinated, maybe that will change.

“Ask and you shall receive.”
Pursuit started in Glendale ended in Elysian Park. FIVE ARMED SUSPECTS IN CUSTODY after crashing their Compton Clown Car. They got airborne after hitting the curb and losing control. They had a head-on with a telephone pole. Flipped a couple more times and then they all crawled out with their hands up into the waiting arms of the Glendale PD with AR-15s and Attack Dogs.

And they are lucky that they are just under arrest.
(Update: Tonight the entire neighborhood is without power. Total Blackout!)

6:15pm: We need another nap.

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZZ.

8:45pm: And now we are awake again. Time to eat.

10:25pm: We made some food.
On The Menu: Fried chicken breast, dill pickle, celery and carrot sticks,
strawberries and an iced espresso to drink
230661460_5006386569387869_1751509006201383179_n

10:55pm: WE GOT ANOTHER PURSUIT! And then they lost him in DTLA….
He drove into the 3rd street tunnel and didn’t come out. WTF?
We took the dog outside. And it’s almost Friday.

There were days
And there were days
And there were days between
Polished like a golden bowl
The finest ever seen
Hearts of Summer held in trust
Still tender, young and green
Left on shelves collecting dust
Not knowing what they mean
Valentines of flesh and blood
Still tender, young and green
Hoping love would not forsake

ALL FIREWORKS ARE ILLEGAL IN THE CITY OF LOS ANGELES!

It’s WORLD UFO DAY! (aka International UFO Day)
mind-blown-aliens

On this day in 1964, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act.
BLACKLIVESMATTER!

5:45am: Friday morning. We’ve been awake for a little bit.
We took the dog outside. We made an iced espresso.
We are watching the stupid local news on KTLA. AND IT’S REALLY STUPID!

8:30am: We went back to bed and got woken up. The dogs got fed.
We made another iced espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.

The Los Angeles Dodgers are at The White House this morning meeting with President Joe Biden. And LA Mayor Garcetti is there (of course he is, because NO PHOTO OP IS TOO BIG OR SMALL). Garcetti is lobbying for a Washington gig while the City of Los Angeles remains a total mess. What about the BUSISNESS OF LOS ANGELES?

President Joe Biden and Vice-President Kamala Harris met with the Los Angeles Dodgers. They gave the President and Vice-President personalized jerseys. Pitcher Clayton Kershaw made a short thank you speech. Joe told a Satchel Page story and made a joke about age, and then rambled on for too long again. And then they took pictures.

5:20pm: We got the newspapers and the mail. We took the dogs outside. We took a nap with the dogs. We made another iced espresso. It was HOT outside. We stayed inside. Nothing happened. We ate the leftover pizza for lunch. And it’s time to feed the dogs again. We’ve already set up their supper. Just going to wait a little bit. We didn’t do anything today again. Friday. Friday.

4th of July Friday Traffic in Los Angeles at 5:00pm Rush Hour!

4:20pm.

8:45pm: We made some food. Call it early dinner or late lunch.
We took the dogs outside. The dogs got fed. We took the dogs outside.

212152853_4906330302726830_8429409060388612299_n

10:55pm: Called the police on the neighbors shooting off fireworks in their backyard again.
Scares the dogs. Annoys the shit out of us. Scares the birds and wild animals.
We are calling everytime from now on. LAPD is overburdened and it’s not an emergency.
And we just spent 22 minutes on HOLD waiting for LAPD Non-Emergency Operator.
CALL 877-LAPD247 to report ILLEGAL FIREWORKS!

HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY!

12:08am: It’s Independence Day! Happy Fourth!
The alarm next door was going off for about 15 minutes,
There was another loud explosion just before midnight.
Now all is quiet. But random fireworks can still be heard farther away.
LAPD is busy working street racers taking over intersections,
a kidnapping, persons with guns, persons with green lasers,
and the usual robberies, assaults, and other crimes.
AND THEY ARE GOING TO ARREST THE GUY WITH THE GREEN LASER!

When Independence Day falls on a Sunday,
the following Monday is a Federal Holiday
and a State Holiday in all US states except Texas.

We’ve been taking cover with he dogs in the Home Office all night.
The neighbors started with fireworks at 5:45pm. We called the police again.
The dogs got fed. We took the dogs outside.
The fireworks show at El Caballero Country Club has got to be stopped!
TOO FUCKING LOUD! BOOM BOOM BOOM! BOOM! BOOM! BOOM!
And so many illegal fireworks going off all over the city. Sounds like a war zone.
We took the dogs outside. We made and ate dinner.

On The Menu: Thin cut top sirloin steak and onions

“IS THERE ANYBODY OUT THERE?”
(seriously, sometimes we really wonder….)
Our Stats tell us that we are International and have followers around the world.

Wow, More than One Thousand Blog Posts published!
Eight years! Over One Hundred Thousand (unsolicited) Hits on our Blog!
We didn’t even realize that we had passed One Thousand Blog Posts….
(and along the way we’ve deleted and consolidated some of our previous posts)

CELEBRATE ONE THOUSAND PUBLISHED BLOG POSTS WITH US!
1000 posts

We started this Blog in 2013 as a Travel Blog. It naturally evolved into a Lifestyle Blog (with a lot of recipes and other useful information), and then more recently a  Political Platform (Anti-Trump and Anti-GOP Traitor) and  CoronaVirus Journal.

NOTE: We thought the ATTEMPTED FASCIST TAKEOVER OF OUR GOVERNMENT culminating in the JANUARY 6, 2021 ATTACK ON THE US CAPITOL in Washington DC and the ongoing CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC that has KILLED OVER 600000+ US CITIZENS was more important than non-existent travel or social events.

We began reporting on COVID-19 in January of 2020!
We warned our loyal readers about the CoronaVirus in early February 2020!
And we issued a TRAVEL ALERT and WARNING at the end of February 2020:

205263124_10225448143614333_8939321973284966572_n

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.

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

  • 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

186484371_4754407701252425_176431759435081159_n

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.

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!
10 Freeway is CLOSED near Fontana, California after a Big Rig Pursuit!

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.

On The Menu: Banana Bread x2 (YUM! YUM!)
205385742_4877306695629191_6309354696604313710_n
Time for dinner, but I just baked two loaves of banana bread,
and it’s really really good.
And the whole house smells like hot fresh banana bread.
So, banana bread for dinner at midnight.

You can find the RECIPE for BANANA BREAD in our previous Blog Posts!

Yes it’s time for dinner…. but first,

We took the dogs outside, and into the kitchen, and into the Home Office.
And we just took a shower.

9:30am: We woke up at 8:00am. We got the newspapers and made an iced espresso.
We prepped the dogs’ breakfast. We took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs.
We took the dogs outside again. We are “dumping” all the pictures on our cell phone.
Time to get a new one….

11:25am: We are chillin’ in the Home Office with the dogs.
The housekeeper is here. We gave her Monday off., so there’s stuff for her to do.
We made another iced espresso and we got the mail. We ate a slice of banana bread.
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!
WHEN WILL HE BE ARRESTED? HE IS A GOP TRUMP TRAITOR! LOCK HIM UP!
“America’s Mayor” is a CRIMINAL. (big surprise, right?)

4:05pm: Well, the housekeeper finished and left. We took the dogs outside.
We took a little nap. We woke up and made some lunch and an iced espresso to drink.
On The Menu: Steak, bean, and cheese burrito with fresh guacamole and salsa verde.

Recapping Thursday evening and night at 4:45am on Friday.
We took the dogs outside and fed the dogs. We took the dogs outside.

We watched a live pursuit from Oakland.
Stolen Audi SUV, they crashed it and two ran. But they didn’t go too far.
3 suspects in custody. (and this fool tried jumping fences with a helicopter overhead)
Screen Shot 2021-06-24 at 19.52.26

On The Menu: Fruits and veggies with pita chips.
Mango, strawberries, raspberries, cherries, carrot & celery sticks, dill pickle,
with pita chips, and an iced espresso to drink at 10:30pm

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?

Delaware.

Delaware.

200075270_5583672328372600_4210469042411636259_n

Delaware’s scenic beauty, low taxes, and affordable housing
make this tiny state a wonderful place to live, work and play.

ADVICE FOR ANYONE MOVING TO DELAWARE…or just visiting.

1. The Beach traffic is horrible and never stops. It is like this year round.
This also applies to the state fair, Nascar, firefly, and any and all other events happening in Delaware.
2. It’s a different world below the canal. “Lower Slower Delaware”
3. If you do run your car into a ditch, don’t panic.
Four men in the cab of a four wheel drive with a 12-pack of beer and a tow chain will be along shortly. Don’t try to help them. Just stay out of their way. This is what they live for.
4. Remember: “Y’all” is singular. “All y’all” is plural. “All y’all’s” is plural possessive.
5. Get used to the phrase: “It’s not the heat, it’s the humidity”
And the collateral phrase: “You call this hot? Wait ’til August”
6. Don’t tell us how you did it up there. Nobody cares.
7. If you think it’s too hot, don’t worry. It will cool down in December (if you are lucky)
8. A Mercedes-Benz is not a status symbol. A Chevy, Dodge, or Ford is.
9. If someone says they’re “fixin” to do something, that doesn’t mean anything’s broken.
10. The value of a parking space is not determined by the distance to the door, but by the availability of shade.
11. If you see a slower moving vehicle on a two lane road pull onto the shoulder, that is called “courtesy”.
12. BBQ is a food group. It does NOT mean the act of grilling burgers and hot dogs outdoors.
13. Yes, weddings, funerals, and divorces must take into consideration Football games.
14. Everything is better with Ranch dressing.
15. DO NOT honk your horn at us to be obnoxious, we will sit there until we die.
16. We pull over and stop for emergency vehicles to pass.
17. We pull over for funeral processions, turn our music off and men remove hats or caps. Some people put their hand over their heart.
18. “Bless your Heart” is a nice way of saying you’re an idiot.
19. No matter what kind: sprite, coke, pepsi, mountain dew, it is called Soda
20. If you don’t like the weather in DELAWARE, wait 15 minutes, it will change.
21. Hughes scrapple is the best.
22. Everyone knows everyone so don’t talk shit it will get back to them!
23. Don’t speed in small towns down state (Felton , Greenwood, Harrington, etc.)
The “popo” will get you!!
24. You will get use to the smell.
25. Greenwood fire house chicken is the bomb!!!!
We ripped this from the interweb.
WELCOME TO DELAWARE!!

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?

“These rules are pretty specific.
It’s almost as if they know who’s showing up…”

Practice the “Ten Principles” and also Consent (“the eleventh principle”)
AND ALWAYS SAFETY THIRD!
Safety for OTHERS, Safety for PLACE AND PROPERTY,
and then SAFETY THIRD! (for yourself)

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 be respectful of the communities and services you use when coming to the Black Rock Desert playa.
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
bm2017

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.

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.

mad-hatter-a-very-merry-unbirthday-to-you-•••-its-13100549

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.

“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.”

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!

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!

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)
