SOON: With the possibility of a government shutdown looming, Senate Majority Leader Senator Mitch McConnell has called for a vote to break a Democratic filibuster.

L.A. Times Newsroom Workers Vote To Unionize



Back during my college years, I worked for the Los Angeles Times in Redondo Beach in their subscription sales department. During that time, the paper was run by the Chandler family. They took exceptional pride that they were not a union newspaper. This may sound odd, since the Times was a liberal newspaper, but that's the way it was. 

Since then, the Los Angeles Times was sold by the Chandlers and it has changed hands a few more times, mainly to incompetents. This has caused problems with the newspaper's staff. They saw regular cuts in benefits, raises and staff.

It appears they finally decided to fight back: They voted to unionize.

The Whittier Daily News reported:
LOS ANGELES — Newsroom employees at the Los Angeles Times voted overwhelmingly to unionize for the first time in the paper’s 136-year history, according to results tallied today. 
The results of the newsroom vote — tallied by the National Labor Relations Board — showed 248 employees voting in favor of unionizing, with 44 opposed. 
The L.A. Times Guild committee pushing for the union called the vote “a landslide victory, and a historic day for the Los Angeles Times newsroom.”
To me, this appears to be the beginning of the end of the Los Angeles Times. Los Angeles had another major daily newspaper (the one I actually preferred reading), the Los Angeles Herald-Examiner. That newspaper was a union newspaper owned by the Hearst Corp. Unfortunately, the union called a strike in 1967 and that strike was so severe and long-lasting that it virtually ruined the Herald-Examiner. It never fully recovered from the effects of the strike and the paper folded on November 2, 1989. I worked for the Herald-Examiner during the summer of 1977 as a photographer for their South Bay section.

I can easily see the Los Angeles Times falling the same way as the Herald-Examiner did. Only time will tell.

Crunch Time



It is now past the halfway point of this month. I guess I am in "crunch time" with the impending close of the home sale and the move to New Mexico.

Things got a little complicated when I came down with the flu earlier this week. Thankfully, it is subsiding and I am getting some energy back. It should be completely gone in a few days.

With the lack of energy, I missed some days where I could have been packing. I did manage to go to U-Haul to pick up some more boxes today. It looks like it might rain tonight.

Jess will be heading to Iowa this coming Thursday. I will have to help her get her stuff in one place so the movers her dad hired can load everything up. She will then fly to Des Moines.

I will have to go to Gallup on January 28 to sign the final papers, do the final inspection walk-through, hand over the check and fly back home, all on the 29th. I will be flying to Albuquerque and renting a car there to drive to Gallup (125 miles).

In the meantime, Asya is in Los Angeles on a visit and wants to hang out before I move. We will probably meet up sometime this coming week. This will be the first time seeing her since the portrait unveiling party at the Odyssey Restaurant in October 2016. Since then, she's been in New York, St. Petersburg (Russia), China and other places.

There's other things I have to do and people to see before moving. Just hope I can get everything done before the movers show up on January 31.

Government Shutdown: Mail Delivery Yes, Yosemite No

The Democrats are up to their old extortion tricks, namely, shutting down the government if they don't get their way in having the Republicans meet their demands on DACA.

The House passed a government-wide four-week funding bill. Sen. Charles Schumer's Democrats in the Senate have served notice they will filibuster the bill.

From the Sacramento Bee:
It’s not a good weekend to plan that road trip for a wintertime twirl on the ice under Half Dome in Yosemite National Park. 
The prospect of a government shutdown means the park gate – and the vendor who’d rent you those ice skates – might be closed for business as of Saturday, unless Congress can strike a deal to keep the federal workforce running. 
As of Thursday, leaders at federal agencies said they’re still hoping lawmakers can overcome differences to keep their doors open after this weekend. The hang-up appears to be over whether a deal for a new spending bill should also extend immigration protections for people known as “Dreamers” whose parents brought them to the U.S. at a young age. 
“We fully expect the government to remain open, however in the event of a shutdown, national parks will remain as accessible as possible,” a spokesman for the National Parks Service said. 
Still, agencies are making plans just in case they have to send some workers home. In California, 140,000 civilians work for the federal government. 
Here’s a look at how the shutdown might affect you and the government services you use.

Lunatic AG Becerra: ‘We Will Prosecute’ Employers Who Cooperate with Federal Immigration Officials



The Looney Left Report

The lunatics have definitely taken over the asylum known as California.

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra announced that he would "prosecute" employers who cooperate with federal immigration officials.

Breitbart reported:
California Attorney General Xavier Becerra (D) says his office “will prosecute” employers who cooperate with federal immigration officials to deport criminal illegal aliens from the United States. 
In a press conference on Thursday, the pro-open borders attorney general warned California employers of new state laws that barred businesses from providing information on illegal aliens to the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency that would aid in deportations.

Small wonder why some eastern California counties want to secede from California to form their own state.

Interior Department Cheers Resignations

Above, a view from Old Faithful Inn. Photo by Armand Vaquer.

Nine members of an advisory committee on the national parks resigned. The liberal media has been screaming over this. For the Trump Administration, the resignations were just a political stunt and they're glad to see them goPark Ser.

According to The Hill:
The Interior Department said it welcomes the resignations of most members of an advisory committee on national parks. 
In letters first reported Tuesday by The Washington Post, advisory committee members said Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke wasn’t meeting with them or consulting them on key issues like his proposal to increase some parks’ fees. 
But Interior spokeswoman Heather Swift said in a statement the nine members of the 12-person National Park System Advisory Board had ignored sexual assault problems at the National Park Service (NPS) while supporting former Director Jonathan Jarvis despite ethics violations, among other problems.

Wyoming's two national parks saw high visitor numbers in 2017.

The Casper Star-Tribune reported:
Grand Teton National Park announced a record number of visitations in 2017 for the fourth consecutive year. The park received more than 4.9 million visits, according to a news release, a increase of 3 percent more than the prior record set in 2016. 
The high volume included August, when tens of thousands of people descended on the park to view the total solar eclipse. Park officials noted 65,000 more visitors compared to the prior August. 
Yellowstone National Park recorded its second busiest year on record, according to numbers released Wednesday. 
The park had slightly more than 4.1 million in 2017, just under the more than 4.2 million visits recorded in 2016.

The figures are out and two of Utah's national parks set new attendance records in 2017.

According to the St. George Daily Spectrum:
Utah's most popular national parks are only getting more popular, with both Zion and Bryce Canyon National Park reporting record numbers of visitors in 2017. 
Zion National Park saw more than 4.5 million visitors over the course of the year, a 5 percent increase over 2016, which had been the record year with 4.3 million visitors, according to figures published by the National Park Service. 
At Bryce Canyon, the figure was 2.6 million, a 9-percent increase over 2016, which was also the previous record holder at 2.4 million. Both parks have seen visitation grow by more than 40 percent since 2010, with steady increases in traffic each year. 
The new record figures come just as park service officials are considering a controversial fee hike and a potential online reservation system for Zion.

Flu or Cold?



We've been hearing a lot about this year's flu season. It has been worse this season and has caused a number of deaths.

I came down with a cold or flu a month ago during the fires in and around the San Fernando Valley. I went to the doctor and the prescribed medication knocked it off in short order.

Last night, I was having bouts of sneezing and coughing, which continued on today. I don't know if this is another cold or flu or the same one from a month ago that decided to come back.

Fortunately for me, I have ten day's worth of Montelukast tablets left over from last month's bout. I started taking them last night.

If this is a new cold/flu, I suspect it came from when I went to the market or U-Haul last Friday. This came abruptly and at the wrong time since I have a lot of packing to do.

What's the difference between a flu and a cold? According to the Center For Disease Control (CDC):

Flu vs Cold

DHS Preparing To Arrest Leaders of Sanctuary Cities




Well, it is about time that the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Justice got the wheels in motion to deal with sanctuary cities and sanctuary states.

The Washington Times reported:
Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen confirmed Tuesday that her department has asked federal prosecutors to see if they can lodge criminal charges against sanctuary cities that refuse to cooperate with federal deportation efforts. 
“The Department of Justice is reviewing what avenues may be available,” Ms. Nielsen told the Senate Judiciary Committee. 
Her confirmation came after California’s new sanctuary law went into effect Jan. 1, severely restricting cooperation the state or any of its localities could offer. 
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Tom Homan says those policies put his officers and local communities at more risk because they have to arrest illegal immigrants out in the community.

I'd love to see Gov. Jerry Brown and mayors and city council members tossed in jail.

A Guide To The Best ‘Lost In Translation’ Spots In Tokyo

Above, Q-Front and Shibuya Scramble. Photo by Armand Vaquer.

The movie Lost In Translation was released about a year or two after my first trip to Japan and just before the first G-TOUR in 2004.

In commemoration of the release of Lost In Translation, Gaijinpot.com has a guide to the best Lost In Translation spots in Tokyo.

It begins with:
It has been a decade and a half now since the year Lost in Translation, the romantic comedy-drama starring Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson, first hit theaters. More than any other film, this is the one that foreigners coming to Tokyo for the first time seem to most associate with the city. 
Up-to-date with the most recent info as of January 2018, we take a comprehensive look here at the real-life locations featured in the film: from famous landmarks like the Park Hyatt Tokyo hotel in Shinjuku to spots that take some more tracking down like the exact karaoke box in Shibuya where Murray and Johansson’s characters sang songs with their Japanese friends.

Discounts Seniors Didn’t Know They Could Get

Many of us baby boomers have entered or nearing "geezerhood" (becoming a senior citizen). With that, and relying upon retirement savings and Social Security, money is limited. 

We know about senior discounts at restaurants, but there's more money-saving benefits seniors can get access to.

Life'd has posted a list of 19 discounts that many seniors didn't know they can get.

They begin with:
There are many special discounts that are available to seniors. Retirees are offered discounts at most retailers, restaurants, parks, on public transport and at hotels. But you won’t get these discounts unless YOU ASK for them. 
Simply ask the question, “Do you offer a senior discount?” and see how much you can save. You’ll be able to save money every time you find yourself reaching for your wallet or purse. Here is a list of 19 discounts seniors get only if they know to ask about them in 2018. Not only can you read about them here, you can click the links provided if you want to take advantage of these special discounts.

Black Eye for Hawaii and Its Governor

Liberal buffoons like Keith Olbermann and actress Jaime Lee Curtis tried to blame President Trump for the ballistic missile alert false alarm and response that took place in Hawaii, but the blame rests with the Democrats who run the state.

The blame for the poor response is being placed by none other than the New York Times.

They wrote:
The false alarm about an incoming ballistic missile that sent Hawaii into a panic this weekend threatened to turn into a major embarrassment for the state and its politically endangered governor, David Y. Ige, as Hawaii officials moved to head off damage to Hawaii’s biggest industry, tourism. 
The Federal Communications Commission said on Sunday that its initial investigation of the mistaken alert had concluded that Hawaii did not have “reasonable safeguards or process controls in place” in its emergency notification process. The alert was sent to cellphones across Hawaii on Saturday morning when a state employee pushed the wrong button in the midst of a shift-change safety drill. It then took 38 minutes for the agency to withdraw the alert. 
The prospect of a battery of investigations by state and federal lawmakers, with public testimony about the timeline of events, suggested that the alert would probably be a dominant subject in Hawaii life for months to come. 
And it quickly emerged as an issue for Mr. Ige, 60, a soft-spoken engineer and a Democrat who is up for re-election this year, and whose leadership style had already been criticized as tepid. He held a news conference five hours after the mistake to apologize, and frequently yielded the microphone to other officials. 
“This is one of the worst things that could happen to an incumbent governor who has already been criticized for his lack of leadership,” said Colin Moore, director of the Public Policy Center at the University of Hawaii. “There is no more obvious test of leadership than responding to what happened yesterday.” 
“This story isn’t going to go away,” Mr. Moore said. “It’s going to haunt his re-election campaign all the way to the August primary. Everyone is going to want to talk about their story — that morning when they were terrified, and why it took the governor so long to respond.” 
Mr. Ige issued a statement on Sunday apologizing again for the bungled alert. “I can personally assure each and every resident and visitor that steps have already been taken by the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency to ensure that a situation of this type never happens again,” he said. 
Across Hawaii on Sunday, people spoke about gathering their families for what they thought would be their last moments, until the “false alarm” announcement went out. 
“Why did it take so long to correct the mistake?” said Jamie Higa, 34, a real estate agent. “Whoever is responsible clearly failed to do his job. The governor isn’t directly responsible for what happened, but he is our top elected official.” 
Representative Colleen Hanabusa, who is challenging Mr. Ige in the Democratic primary in August, repeatedly questioned in an interview why it took so long for the alert to be rescinded. 
“Thirty-eight minutes — and the fear and the anxiety and everything that it caused for the people and for our visitors,” she said. “This is going to have a major consequence for our visitor industry as well. Either people think we are incompetent, or we are not safe.” 
“The governor and his administration did not handle this correctly,” she continued. “You cannot have people driving 100 miles an hour on the freeway and having visitors shelter in place. Immediately, what he should have done is checked and verified whether it is real or not real, and if it was not real, tell people immediately, not 38 minutes later.”

Yes, like California, Hawaii is a beautiful state, and it is also run by inept Democrats.

Graceland Body Mystery

Here's a weird story.

An Ohio woman allegedly passed away from natural causes across the street from Elvis Presley's Graceland mansion in Memphis and was taken by a flagged ambulance. Now nobody can seem to find any trace of her body.

According to Ohio.com:
Philip and Roberta Snider left their Hartville home Jan. 4 for possibly their last trip to Graceland, the Tennessee home of Elvis Presley. 
Only Philip made it home. 
He told his family, and later police, that Roberta — who would have turned 70 on Monday and had several serious medical issues — died in their Ford F-150 in a Memphis hotel parking lot across the street from the place that bills itself as the world’s most famous rock ’n’ roll residence. 
Philip never called 911. He told police he saw an ambulance in a parking lot adjacent to the motel and waved it down for help. 
Emergency medical technicians whisked Roberta’s body away, Philip told police, but he didn’t know where they took her, so he came home. 
Roberta’s brother called Hartville police this week after hearing what happened, hoping they could help the family bring Roberta’s body home. 
“We talked to her husband who said she passed of natural causes,” Hartville Police Chief Larry Dordea said Thursday. “At first blush, what happened seemed reasonable.” 
But Dordea has since discovered that Tennessee authorities have no record of Roberta’s body, nor any Jane Doe who matches her description.

Dollar Briefly Hits Four-Month Low Against Yen



The U.S. dollar has not been doing so hot against the Japanese yen in Tokyo since New Year's. It briefly hit a 4-month low in today's trading.

Jiji Press reported:
Tokyo, Jan. 15 (Jiji Press)--The dollar briefly hit a four-month low below 110.60 yen in Tokyo trading on Monday, reflecting its weakness against the euro, which drew demand due to progress in negotiations in Germany to form a coalition government. 
 After falling to the lowest level in Tokyo since Sept. 15 last year, the dollar stood at 110.81-82 yen at 5 p.m., down from 111.36-37 yen at the same time on Friday.

If you happen to be a wealthy high-roller, then Kyoto, Japan wants you to visit the city and spend.

According to Japan Today:
KYOTO - The city of Kyoto, visited by over 50 million tourists a year, is boosting efforts to attract wealthy foreign travelers by offering cultural workshops to satisfy their appetite for a deeper engagement with their destinations. 
With visitors already at record-high levels, the ancient Japanese capital is shifting focus from quantity to quality in its tourism promotion, targeting the higher spending associated with high-end tourism, especially by foreigners. 
According to the city, Japanese travelers, excluding those who made day trips, in 2016 spent about 47,000 yen per person, about half the 100,000 yen spent by foreign tourists.

Casino RV Camping

Above, Jess in front of Twin Arrows Casino Resort. Photo by Armand Vaquer.

When I move to New Mexico, I will have plenty of places in and around the state to take some nice camping trips.

There are state parks nearby with some campgrounds. There are also private RV parks around as well, including ones connected to casinos.

While on the way to Grand Canyon National Park last November, Jess and I stopped for breakfast at the Twin Arrows Navajo Casino Resort near Flagstaff, Arizona. They don't have a RV park, but they allow overnighting in a RV-designated parking lot. The food was great, by the way! Their website: http://www.twinarrows.com/.

Since I am moving to the Navajo Nation area of New Mexico, there are Indian casinos that either allow overnight parking or have a RV park with all the amenities.

A couple of which are located along Interstate 40:

Route 66 RV Resort is in the western area of Albuquerque. It is 20 minutes west of downtown Albuquerque off Interstate 40. It looks like a nice place and it is a part of Route 66 Casino Hotel. Their website is: http://rt66rvresort.com/.

Sky City Casino Hotel also has their own RV park. It is a bit closer to Gallup (about 45 minutes west of Albuquerque). It also looks like a nice place. Their website is: http://www.skycity.com/alpha.html.

During my perusal of casinos with RV parks, I came across a website that provides information on casinos with RV parks around the country, not just New Mexico.

It is Casino Camper.

Here's what they say about the site:
This website is operated by an RV'ing couple who have been living and traveling fulltime in a motor home since 2004. While traveling, it's great to have a free or inexpensive place to stop for the night. Many casino's not only allow RV overnight parking, they also encourage RV'ers to spend the night with them. They're hoping you'll also come in for a good meal and try your luck in the casino. Parking overnight in your RV at a casino is a great option. 
This website is free and we strive to provide the most COMPLETE and CURRENT information available on overnight RV parking at casinos. This website is "user supported". Please create a free user account and submit your photos, new and updated casino listings, and reviews of your visit. The more submissions we get, the more accurate the information will be, which helps everyone. Also, please visit our "Sponsors". No purchase is required, but visiting them helps support the operation of this website.

Plenty, Scarce or Non-Existent In New Mexico

 Bear Diners in New Mexico. Photo by Armand Vaquer.

Many restaurant chains, stores and banks that I've taken for granted in California are either plenty, scarce or non-existent in New Mexico, I've found.

Chase Bank is nowhere to be found in Albuquerque. The nearest one to Gallup, New Mexico is about 135 miles away in Show Low, Arizona.

The nearest Macy's department store is in Albuquerque. It is the only Macy's in New Mexico.

There are at least two R.E.I. stores in Albuquerque.

There's a Wells Fargo Bank in Gallup.

There seems to be a good sushi restaurant (from the reviews I've seen) in Gallup. It is called Zen Sushi & Steak.

There's two Denny's restaurants in Gallup as is one Cracker Barrel restaurant.

There's a Safeway supermarket in Gallup, but no Von's, Ralphs or Kroger's. There's also an Albertsons.

There's no Black Bear Diner restaurants in New Mexico. There's some in Arizona, but not along the Interstate 40 corridor.

In 'N Out Burger has locations in Texas, Arizona, California, Nevada and Utah. It has not begun to plan to locate to Albuquerque, New Mexico in the near future because current expansion is focused on Texas.

There are no Tommy's Hamburgers in New Mexico.

There is a La Mesa RV dealership in Albuquerque. This works well for me since I bought The Beast at their dealership in San Diego.

There's McDonalds, Arby's, Carl's Jr., Long John Silver's, Taco Bell and Wendy's restaurants in Gallup.

There's several Subway restaurants in New Mexico, including one in Jamestown.

Thankfully, there are three movie theaters in Gallup.

The nearest airport with actual airlines to Gallup is in Albuquerque.

There is a minor league team in Albuquerque, the Albuquerque Isotopes of the Pacific Coast League, the Triple-A affiliate of the Colorado Rockies.

Nixon Library Elvis Stamp First Day of Issue

It is sometimes amazing what things you may find when packing up belongings for a move.

Such is the case with the following.

I found two copies of a postal card from the Richard Nixon Library and Birthplace. On the front is the famous photo by White House Photographer Ollie Atkins of President Nixon and Elvis Presley.

On the reverse, is a U.S. Postal Service postage stamp of Elvis Presley. The card indicates that it was stamped January 8, 1993, on the first day of issue of the Elvis stamp. I forgot I even had these.

Note the "whopping" price of the stamp: $.29!



In the same batch of stuff, I found a thank-you card from actress Noel Neill for the birthday present I gave her at her 85th birthday celebration in Studio City and a letter from the executive director of the Nixon Library thanking our Cub Scout pack for offering to help with the grand opening of the Nixon Library.

Trump Supporter Kevin Sorbo Denied Spot at East Coast Comicon

The political atmosphere is so poisoned that it has even crept to comic book conventions.

Bounding Into Comics reported:
Trump supporter and former Hercules and Andromeda actor Kevin Sorbo has been denied a spot at East Coast Comicon. The real kicker is the reason why Sorbo was denied. 
According to Cliff Galbraith of Crucial Entertainment who organizes the Comicon, he turned down Kevin Sorbo because “he’s pals with Sean Hannity. I just can’t do it.”

Galbraith posted the following on Facebook. But, unfortunately for him, he removed his post a little too late as it was copied and posted.

Here it is:



It is a sad state of affairs when convention organizers turn down guests over politics. This would be like J. D. Lees denying writer Tony Isabella a guest spot at G-FEST over his left-liberal politics. Only Lees has the decency and the sense that a good guest is a good guest, despite the guest's politics.

People have taken to Facebook to declare that they are boycotting East Coast Comicon.

Hawaii Thrown Into Panic: Inbound Ballistic Missile Button Pushed By Mistake



OOPS!

Someone in Hawaii pressed the wrong button during a civil defense test.

The Daily Mail reported:
Anger is spreading in Hawaii after a Civil Defense bungle on Saturday morning, when a mistaken alert warning of an inbound ballistic missile sent thousands fleeing for shelter. 
The false alarm was caused by a Hawaii Emergency Management Agency employee who 'pushed the wrong buttons' during an internal drill timed to coincide with a shift handover at 8.07am. The all-clear phone alert was not sent until 38 minutes later. 
Incredibly, officials said the employee who made the mistake wasn't aware of it until mobile phones in the command center began displaying the alert.
