10 good but controversial things about the coronavirus

Staying Home: Welcome to my World!

The Pond In My Condo




Everybody, welcome to my world! I’ve been staying home almost every day because I have been looking for work, applying for jobs online, as most jobs are these days, for around 2 years and I am over 62 so it’s really tough to get hired. It got so tough that I had to file for social security early and get less money so I have less to live on than if I had full retirement.  Now, because of coronavirus, everyone stays home, all the time. I love working on artistic projects, staying home but I need money just like you do now. I look out my window and see everyone at home, with more time to do what they want but no money. Now everybody has to do almost everything online like I do when I file job applications. I was in the middle of testing for a graphic designer job online when the company canceled the position because of the coronavirus, It turned out you can’t do the job without working in an office. My book signing at Barnes and Noble was also canceled. With all the partisan bickering, who knows if and when the government will really help us survive?

  1. Less traffic cleaner air

  2. Republicans and democrats appear to be working together in an unusually cooperative matter to avert a melt down of the economy.

  3. Spend more time with loved ones

  4. If you don’t have to go to an office you can still work more comfortably at home, in your pj’s.

  5. More control over raising your Kids.

  6. Get neglected household projects done

  7. Great for Multi-tasking

  8. Work on private dream projects

9.Save money on gas and lunch

  1. Less supervision less stress than working in person no one looking over your shoulder

Getting checked at the doctor’s office for Covid 19, might have strep throat or influenza instead, since I didn’t travel recently and don’t have a fever. Results for strep throat and pneumonia are coming back any minute now.  Pretty nurse practitioner did a thorough job and made me feel cared for. Even though I don’t pay a penny.  Feel tired and so glad I got seen right away on a same day appointment!   The timing is also off for getting Covid. So I hope to God I have something that they can easily cure or it goes away on it’s own.

Now I am here possibly facing mortality but hopefully not. I must also face my boredom in this exam room. Perhaps the mold in the house is doing this to me too.

This disease could ruin everyone’s progress, including my own.  We have to rise above it with our collective creativity.

Dead Bird In The Gutter They Were Jumping Over

On a lazy Saturday afternoon, I saw a bunch of these young guys hanging around the San Diego Marine Embarcadero Park  near the Star of India, watching another guy jump his bicycle over an open gutter with a dead bird they said they put in it. It seemed like such a shame that these guys have nothing else to do except create  what they joked about was  “hepatitis water.” Not to mention how cruel it is for the poor dead bird and unsafe for the kids.  Is this creativity or chaos? Shouldn’t the city do something?

Doob: Mini You In 3D At Fashion Valley

Ever seen the Matt Damon movie, “Downsizing” where people shrink down to become 3D miniatures to save a lot money and live in tiny luxury homes?

Doob

Mini You @ The

 Now you can spend your extra money at the local mall to get a 3D printed miniature of yourself and your family. The company is called Doob and no, it isn’t a joint like the name sounds. Although the Jefferson Airplane song is partly about shrinking yourself with hallucinogens.

So if your tired of flat family photos, then go down to the mall and get a 3D printed Doob of yourself. Prices range from $95.00 to $295.00, depending on how many family mmbers you want . I’m not sure if payment plans are available.   And you need to be 3D scanned in person so you can’t make any voodoo dolls.

Downtown San Diego Holiday Bowl Parade

I got up early New Years eve Morning to see the balloon parade. I’ve always wanted to see it so this year I didn’t miss it. It took me awhile but I finally found a place to park, in a tight spot, but unknowingly it became a fantastic view where the balloons all went to deflate!

Here’s my imaginary San Diego family.

Here’s a piggy.

Thought I was dreaming when I saw this T-Rex floating down the street.

 

This must have been that worm in my tequila.

I want to be the wizard of WordPress.

Went downtown early this New Year's Eve morning and was lucky enough to park where I shouldn't to get these great shots of our San Diego balloon parade.  It brings out the child in me and is a smaller version of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day. It was fun!

Is there a need to fear?

This was my favorite shot!

Now the only question is… are you old enough for…Granny Goose?

I thought the parade was over when this space shuttle balloon came by. This was the last float. Happy New Year!

Should Unruly Children Be On Leashes?

20180929_1734321998423216.jpg

We’ve all seen it. You’re at a public place, usually enjoying an entertainment event when a parent walks by with a child on a leash.  It’s a little shocking to see at first, but then you reason that the child could get away and the parents would be liable, not to mention missing them. The “leash” in the picture above isn’t too bad. I’ve seen others that look like they belong on a precious pooch instead. I don’t have children, but how do you feel about unruly children on leashes? What would you do if you had one or saw one?

Surf Dog Competition in Imperial Beach

As a former brand ambassador for a solar company, I was assigned to attend the Surf Dog Competition in Imperial Beach. I saw this incredible golden doodle dog there, surfing in the ocean. Kentucky & His Dog, Derby Weeks later, I saw the surf dog with his owner, named Kentucky parked at my condo.  It turns out, after talking to Kentucky, that both Kentucky and Derby are my new neighbors here at my beach condo!

Reptile Super Show!

For my job promoting 180 Solar Power, I set appointments at the Reptile Super Show. Here’s a blue camillion, one of my favorite animals there at the San Diego Civic Center.

These are some pretty brave kids.

So… what kind of insurance do you need?

Personally, I believe that most reptiles should be left in the wild, but lizards, chameleons, and turtles might make good pets. I’m not a snake fan though. I also like to occasionally eat fried frogs legs at the Seaside Buffet in Mira Mesa. They’re so tasty. I can’t help myself!

San Diego Comic Festival

I had the privilege of being invited to attend the San Diego Comic Festival last weekend for Free by Photoshop impresario, Stephen Burns.

What a smorgasbord of creativity! First, Stephen taught a lesson on how to use Photoshop to create 3-D. Then I went to another suite called the Crescent Room where there was a participatory lecture about how the ancient Hawaiians navigated by direction. Then, back in the design studio, there was a class on 3D printing. The instructor said they couldn’t quite print organs yet for your body, but dentists do use a 3D printer to print replacement teeth. Whole houses have also been 3D printed for the fraction of what they usually cost, even though they don’t compare to most conventional homes. But mostly 3D is being used to print doodads and chachkes like these below.

Then in the same room, a drone seminar started with Josh Freidman. He showed how his drones can showcase Laguna Beach real estate and told us that San Diego county restricts drones for similar purposes. I asked him if he would fly a drone in the room or outside and he said he wouldn’t. That was a real disappointment. But it was interesting to learn about drones and how they can be used with Adobe Lightroom to create panoramic photography.

 

Here, Josh shows us that drones are now becoming flying cars in Dubai.
