CORONAVIRUS! Part 22 (Tuesday)
NOTE: Okay, well, , so please go back to Part 21, and we’ll continue the last evening’s fun there. And then we’ll begin this Tuesday Blog Post in the morning-morning, after the sun comes up, you know, LATER.
NOTE: We had a doctor’s appointment on March 4th, and there were a lot of really sick old people waiting at the hospital, and it totally freaked us out! We went into full “self-isolation” on March 5 or 6, and have only been out in public to go grocery shopping at the local markets a few times. And the last time we went to the market we got really freaked out by the crowd of people and lack of “social distancing”. Had four food deliveries since the forced lockdown began: two pizzas, Chinese food one night, and then Indian food last Friday (see our previous Blog Posts). So this is about DAY 45 of QUARANTINE!
Tuesday, April 21, 2020
6:00am We’re still awake. We didn’t sleep. We tried, but couldn’t.
We also didn’t eat dinner last night. We ate a PB&J sandwich around 3am.
We cooked and ate some bacon an hour ago.
8:00am Just fell asleep for about an hour and a half, and then woke up, took the dogs outside and fed them, got the newspapers, and now the morning business is done.
Drank a half glass of orange-pineapple juice, ate a piece of fresh pineapple,
and made a cup of espresso. And then we turned on the morning “news”….
Research at USC: (preliminary study – first round of testing)
Antibody tests suggest in L.A. County 200000-450000 people may be infected!
NO WAY TO KNOW THE REAL NUMBERS WITHOUT COMPREHENSIVE TESTING!
DANGER! News media is giving Maximum Coverage to small right-wing protests against the “stay-at-home” orders by extremist-terrorists in certain states. WHY?
Why is Trump encouraging these crazy protests and why is he promoting “re-opening” states that are suffering from outbreaks of CoronaVirus? Why is the news media giving these stupid manufactured political “protests” front page coverage?
“A man’s friendships are one of the best measures of his worth.” – Charles Darwin
WE STILL WANT TO GO TO VEGAS!
BUT LAS VEGAS IS CLOSED!
SAY THAT OUT LOUD! LAS VEGAS IS CLOSED!
TRUMP HAS KILLED THE UNITED STATES!
Some Amazon workers are planning a ‘”sick-out” beginning today to protest lack of “social distancing”, need for testing and sick pay, and unsafe working conditions….
The L.A. Regional Food Bank is giving away food in East L.A. today via a “drive-thru” distribution, people here are FOOD INSECURE! That means they don’t have food.
TRAVEL NEWS: (Nobody is traveling, nobody is planning on travel anytime soon)
Airlines are in trouble. Cruise Lines are in trouble. Hotels are in trouble.
Tourist Attractions are in trouble. Restaurants are in trouble. You see the pattern.
Travel won’t resume until the emergency is resolved. There is no end in sight.
Cruise Lines may never recover, and they are responsible for spreading the disease!
Airlines, Hotels and Restaurants will have to forever change their business practices.
Tourist Attractions, Casinos, and anyplace the Public gathers in large numbers will have to adapt to the new need for safety. Insurers have to re-appraise conditions/coverage.
And the economy and the expected recession will affect travel plans for years to come.
At 12Noon We had a Happy Zoom Birthday Party for our Stepfather!
We also participated in an online Q&A about audiotape transfer to digital media.
6:30pm We may have slept. And we have been outside.
We did some “gardening” in the backyard. It’s a beautiful day here in L.A.
We had the dogs outside a couple times for long stretches and some barking.
We fed them and took them outside again. And now it’s time for our dinner.
Lifting Restriction and Moving to Reopen is a HUGE MISTAKE!
There hasn’t been a proper Quarantine/Social Distancing period.
They’re also now talking about a second wave this coming WINTER!
But there’s about to be a second wave, everywhere there were protests, church meetings, and other large gatherings…. also, the homeless population have no place to isolate, clean themselves, wash their hands, etc. (also, some don’t even know there’s a virus!)
$484 Billion Dollars MORE from the government!
This time for small businesses who got totally screwed by big business
(publicly traded corporations) in the first round of relief.
People who need it are still waiting on the money!
Checks for individuals and families were delayed for Trump’s signature!
Executive order to halt immigration? CRAZY!
Just SCAPEGOATING! Just another DISTRACTION!
Just a RACIST POLITICAL MOVE TO RESTRICT IMMIGRATION!
and cause further more chaos and division.
And the news media keeps bombarding us with these “Positive Spin” moments, that we tried to be specific about in a previous Blog Post. A wedding without guests, who sent pictures for the pews, so “they would be there in spirit”. And then a drive-by birthday! And then viral dancing with Grandma from far away! And FOOD DRIVES and volunteers!
Now there’s a CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT filed against MLB and the LA Dodgers!
Major League Baseball has refused to refund tickets for the 2020 season, because the games aren’t cancelled yet…. a common practice at TicketMaster and LiveNation right now as they are losing more money everyday as this crisis goes on. So, fans who are getting stiffed on their tickets, some in for more than $5000 and they want their money!
8:00pm Okay, we ate dinner and watched “Jeopardy”.
On The Menu: Chili dogs! 2 long Polish dogs, cut to fit 3 buns, with mustard, cheese, chopped onion, and spicy steak chili from last weekend. With a dill pickle, celery, half an avocado, strawberries, and red grapes.
10:00pm We fell asleep for a little bit, and woke up again.
15000+ Reported Cases and 660+ Reported DEATHS in Los Angeles County
33000+ Reported Cases and 1260+ Reported DEATHS in California
826000+ Reported Cases and 45000+ Reported DEATHS in the United States
Two Coronavirus DEATHS in Northern California (Santa Clara County)
on February 6 and 17, three weeks before the first official US death from the virus!
“there was community spread happening in California
as early as mid-January, if not earlier than that”
And Dead&Co. cancelled their 2020 Summer Tour yesterday:
“Due to the global coronavirus outbreak, and in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19, we sadly have no choice but to cancel the upcoming Dead & Company Summer 2020 Tour. The well-being and safety of the Deadhead community, venue workers and our touring family is of the utmost importance to us. We also want to provide you, the fans who’ve been hit hard financially during this difficult time with your money back. All tickets will be fully refunded at point of purchase. We are thankful for your love, your understanding and we look forward to the day when we can all be reunited. In the meantime, keep the faith and believe in the power of music. We will return. We will get by. We will survive.”
And we had a 3.7 magnitude EARTHQUAKE at 12:05am in Los Angeles!
STAYTHEFUCKHOME! STAYTHEFUCKHOME! STAYTHEFUCKHOME!
Charles Robert Darwin (February 12, 1809 – April 19, 1882)
He was an English naturalist, geologist and biologist.
He is best known for his theory of evolution based on natural selection.
His book “On The Origin Of Species By Means Of Natural Selection” published 1859.
(Darwin borrowed some ideas for his theory, including “survival of the fittest” from sociologist Herbert Spencer and “struggle for existence” from economist Thomas Malthus)
He is buried at Westminster Abbey in London, England.
Darwin’s Theory of Evolution: (natural selection)
Species that adapt or evolve to meet the changing requirements of their natural habitat thrive and reproduce, while species that fail to evolve and reproduce die off.
Common Sense Is Not So Common.
“In the spirit of Charles Darwin, the Darwin Awards commemorate individuals who protect our gene pool by making the ultimate sacrifice of their own lives. Darwin Award winners eliminate themselves in an extraordinarily idiotic manner, thereby improving our species’ chances of long-term survival.”
Wendy Norcutt started collecting the stories that make up the Darwin Awards in 1993, while doing biological research at Stanford University. http://www.darwinawards.com
STAYTHEFUCKHOME! STAYTHEFUCKHOME! STAYTHEFUCKHOME!
“If the misery of the poor be caused not by the laws of nature,
but by our institutions, great is our sin.” – Charles Darwin
“Social Darwinism is a loose set of ideologies that emerged in the late 1800s in which Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution by natural selection was used to justify certain political, social, or economic views. Social Darwinists believe in “survival of the fittest”—the idea that certain people become powerful in society because they are innately better. Social Darwinism has been used to justify imperialism, racism, eugenics and social inequality at various times over the past century and a half.”
