July 3, 2021: The day before the Fourth

One day before the so called “let’s set off tons of firework day” in the United States, which is also known as one of the worst days for house pets. I could hear fireworks throughout the day. It started peaking around 21:00 hour, or 09:00 PM for most, as a local firework show started. One of the pets at home started panicking. One way he was coping with the absolute torture to the ears, is to rip apart one of the throw pillows from the couch. Tomorrow night is going to get worse.

Speaking of fireworks, some of you might have heard about the “controlled-explosion” of illegal fireworks seized by Los Angeles Police Department; that went out of control.

Anyway, I finally got to break the seal off Japan exclusive of Helloween self-titled CD.

Helloween Japan Exclusive CD with “We Are Real” track

It contains total of 14 songs on 2 CDs, with “We Are Real” as Japan exclusive track. Each Packaging comes with one out of seven randomly selected sticker featuring illustration of Helloween mark VII band member. This pack contains illustration of Andi Deris, on of three current vocalists, of Helloween.

The Fourth of July is coming up, and I have to find ways to calm all the pets in the house.

2021, Day Three

Southern California Sunset

A lot of things happened on the first Sunday of 2021 in the news. I won’t get to that since you can search for them.

I was cleaning my 2014 MacBook Pro as it has accumulated a lot of dust inside.

Shampoo and Prosecutor

Captain’s log, January 2nd, 2021.

Oh wait, we were watching some Star Trek: The Next Generation episodes on Amazon Prime Video earlier.

Found some wines from 2002 and 2004 under the counter. Hopefully they do not taste like vinegar.

Also saw a belt sander next to a motel that is under renovation.

Overall, it was a “too-early-in-the-year” kind of day.
