I dreamed I was in the elevator here to my apartment and met two women there. One had kids and the other didn’t. The one with kids had her apartment number showing. I think it was 407. I decided to go up to the 4th floor there to find them. The first one I couldn’t remember what the number was and the 2nd one, 407 wasn’t where it should have been. There was a farmer’s market there instead so I gave up.
Then the next dream was that I met a filmmaker who wanted me to help him make a film for 12 or 13 thousand dollars. He showed me the budget and I thought it was too cheap. Plus he wanted me to travel to Orange county and couldn’t pay me yet. So I said no.
Then the dream changed to where I meet my Mom and Dad, (but Dad passed away a few years ago ) at the county fair. I feel so surprised to see my Mom, who gives me a big hug. cause now she lives in Israel. She said she couldn’t get a flight anywhere else and we both agree that it’s beautiful here. Then I see Dad and I say to him, I must be dreaming if you’re here. I realize I am and I wake up.
This is unacceptable! What am I supposed to do when I drive up to this? I’ve called the charging company, OPConnect and after many months, it’s still broken. We need massive education for the public about the benefits of electric cars & better security in order to make electric car charging more attractive. The car charging companies must also take better care of their chargers! Do thqey even care about making a profit? If we are to reduce climate change, we need to convert to electric cars ASAP, especially if they are powered by solar electricity. This vandalism or neglect rarely happens at a gas station.
Right after I wrote this blog, the charging company, OPConnect came out and fixed these chargers! Coincidence or the power of the internet? You decide. Now all OPConnect has to do is lower their outrageous prices. They charge a $35.00 upfront deposit and subtract the amount you charged right away.You supposedly get the rest back in a few days.
I realize gas stations charge an even higher deposit but EVgo doesn’t charge deposits and you get a faster full charge, So what’s up with that? Maybe they’ll change that too.
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?
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.
San Diego Zoo Panda
I want to be the wizard of WordPress.
Is there a need to fear?
This was my favorite shot!
I thought the parade was over when this space shuttle balloon came by. This was the last float. Happy New Year!
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?
At the San Diego UTC Mall, there’s an ice cream store called Sloane’s Ice Cream Parlor. They have the most interesting novelties. They include comical solutions to life’s most complex problems including how to understand your mother, enjoy exercising, talk to your cat, etc.
And then there are the socks.” I love my job ha ha, just kidding”, “I hate everyone,” and others.There’s fake dog poop that’s a spare key hiding spot, the crazy cat lady action figure, which comes with 6 plastic cats,
Of course,there’s also that good old fashioned random bag of crap. As crazy as these things are, I imagine they come with a pretty high price tag. After all, the La Jolla UTC is not cheap. Sloane’s ice cream is very high quality, and so are these laughs, so if you’re looking for unique gag gifts, this is the place to go.
Here’s my newest sample for my portfolio of my Photoshop skills, designed to brighten up my office where I currently market solar energy for Sunrun. I’ve got another one coming out for Passover in my next blog post.
