Better Than Vaccines!

Why Isn’t This All Over The News?

This may be an easier solution to Covid than a vaccine. Many people don’t like vaccines.  Getting a shot is no fun and it’s new so it could be risky. Far UVC lights are known by science to be harmless to humans and could be put in every building so we can be protected without worrying about people getting shots.

Ketch Dome @ Portside Pier

My newest Staycation place

I had been following the progress of this pier almost every week for over a year now. A few major restaurants like   http://ketchgrillandtaps.com/ http://www.brigantine.com/and https://www.miguels-cocina.com/ were supposed to open locations here on the pier. I read a sign that said it was supposed to open in March 2020. Then came the coronavirus. And a lot of delays. I kept checking back, taking a weekly pleasant walk around the San Diego Embarcadero on Mission Bay, hoping it would open. I remembered the old Anthony’s Restaurant and regretted what this historical landmark and beautiful view would become until I saw that they were building a dome here.


Since I met Buckminster Fuller when I was in college, more decades ago than I care to say, and as an experiment, I even lived in a plastic dome in the Santa Cruz mountains that are on fire now, to the chagrin of my late father who spent the night with me there, I was thrilled! The plan was for a few domes that became upscale restaurants, right near the ancient Star of India.

It finally opened, even during Covid 19, so we decided to drive down there. As you can see, it looks fantastically futuristic! They now call it Portside Pier. At the time, we got an easy waterfront parking space and there was no line to get in to Ketch so we walked right in. and I ordered the delicious Coctel DeMar, an incredible ceviche, with crab,shrimp, avocado,salsa, cilantro, etc. as seen on the left in the picture below. It’s supposed to be an appetizer but it was large enough to be a main course. The beer was good too. 

Quickshot  also helped me make the dome look like a spaceship here.

Here’s what it really looked like and below is with Quickshot fireworks special effects. They’re a little phoney but fun!

Me in the Ketch Dome

I went back to the Portside Pier a few weeks later on a Saturday night. The word has gotten out about the place now so it was a little harder to park but I still found a free spot right in front of the Star of India.  We got up to the restaurants and asked for a table at Miguel’s. The pretty hostess said it would be a 2 hour wait. We went back to Ketch and they said the same thing so we wandered around outside the building and inside where we saw some amazing sign art and a restroom, something that was needed on the Pier. My date was clever. She wandered upstairs to the top of Ketch, sat down at a table they said was reserved, and first asked for just a glass of water. Then when we were sitting down, she got a waiter to give us menus. I was ambivalent about the fairness of this because some people were waiting in line for a few hours, and I mentioned it to her, but I finally gave in and ordered. The menu upstairs where we were sitting was very different than what you can order downstairs in the dome. Downstairs they have great seafood. Upstairs you can only get bar food like sandwiches or just fried foods. Downstairs closed at 9pm so we had to eat upstairs. I had the blue fin tuna sandwich. I would say it’s very salty and just Okay. We each had a drink and the total for bar food and drinks was around $50.00. Certainly not a bargain, but incredible scenery! Besides, what do you expect from San Diego’s newest Saturday night hotspot?

Covid Sight Seeing In San Diego

A sign of the times: A mask on the Star of India.

A funny sign on South Beach Cafe, in Ocean Beach, CA
Even in these times, there is still beauty at Pacific Isle. I took this picture of the bird when it was sitting on a railing on the pond. When I got closer, it took flight! A picture more beautiful and majestic than I ever imagined!

We’re Unleashed!

Even though Coronavirus is still raging without a vaccine available, it’s legal again so I have to escape once in awhile around my San Diego neighborhood. Here’s a huge snake at Pet Kingdom, a nearby pet store with a stardust Android photo filter that makes it look like the snake is in a disco.

Here’s some floating hammocks near Paradise Point.

Here’s an upstairs view of boats from Point Loma Seafoods.

Lastly, here’s an unfortunate wounded seagull who lost his foot at the harbor.

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.
