Really appreciate what this man is doing for Los Angeles.
Aside from making fantastic television with his co-stars on Mayans MC, he has started an amazing coffee company called Tepito and gives love back to Homeboy Industries in Los Angeles.

Day three of getting my physical (and therefore also my mental) fitness back in order. Been having lots of excuses, screw that mess.
Too much rad stuff going this summer for me not to be 💯. 💧🥦🚲🥊📚✍️🎸
We recently took a trip and one of our stops was in Denver. We had planned on picking up a rental car at the airport and then driving to Kansas. This is the story of that trip…
The trip starts in Ontario, California. Everything was going as planned, Frontier Airlines got us there to Denver on time, with little turbulence and a very friendly staff.
Once on the ground in Denver, we found our way to the A-line train and went downtown for a couple of days. Those reviews will be in a different article, this one is about the rental car situation.
When we were done having our fun in downtown Denver, we caught the A-line train back to the airport so that we could get the bus that takes you to the rental car places. While standing on the rental car bus pickup island, we saw many buses come and go, but none for Ace rent a car. After about 20 minutes of standing there, the bus driver pulled up and we hopped on. He was a nice gentleman. No problem with him, just the waiting time was kinda long.
The Ace rent a car location is quite a ways from the actual airport terminal. I believe it is the furthest away rental car place in the general airport area. Given the price we had secured through Orbitz, it didn’t really bother me too much that it was taking a while to get there.
When we did finally get to the Ace rent a car building, we exited the bus looking forward to getting on the road. We walked inside only to find a whole bunch of signs everywhere saying that by renting from Ace rent a car “you agree to not leave the state of Colorado with the exception of Moab Utah“.
Honestly, I felt like we were being punked.
When we got up to the counter a guy named Darren helped us. Nice guy. I’ve got no problem with him. I asked him if it was actually for real that we could not take the vehicles outside of the state of Colorado, specifically that we could not go to Kansas. He informed us that taking the vehicle to Kansas would be a “big no-no”. He explained that Ace rent a car is a small company and that they don’t have any way to assist us should we go to Kansas with one of their vehicles and there would be an additional fine for doing so.
Darren mentioned to us that in the fine print terms and conditions part of the rental car reservation on Orbitz that all of this is explained. I’m sure I’m not the only person that doesn’t read every single line of a bunch of legal jargon when renting a car. It would have been a hell of a lot easier to just have put in the rental reservation price quote that it is a “geographically limited rental”. Of course this wasn’t the case and that’s why I ended up making the reservation.
For his part, Darren was a stand-up dude and understanding of our situation. Seems like we were not the first people to have this situation occur. I’m writing this to hopefully eliminate future situations. Darren actually helped us find a very affordable rental through Budget rent a car. He assured us that our reservation with Ace would drop off and there would be no charges. That part worked out fine.
The Budget rent a car review will come in a separate article. I got a few things (good and bad) to say about them, lol.
Moral of the story is, if it seems too good to be true, it is probably too good to be true. The fantastic price ace rent a car offers is awesome: if you have no plans on leaving the state of Colorado.
If you do have plans to go to Nebraska, Kansas, New Mexico or other places – make plans with a different rental agency so that you don’t experience the same 2.5-hour delay that we ‘enjoyed’.
As some of you are probably aware, Jeney and I have a serious affinity towards nachos. ❤️
Good nachos. 🥇🔥🎉
Not those crappy ones you get at the ball game with that fake plastic cheese and nasty canned jalapenos. 🤢🤮
These particular nachos are topped with gardein brand ground ‘bef’, a blend of cheeses, chopped red onion and fresh cilantro. Absolutely delicious! 😋🤤
At some point in the future we hope to open a food truck or restaurant where we serve these delicious nachos. We will see how our plans unfold…👨🍳👩🍳
FWIW at this time, ‘Its Nacho Business’ what our exact plans are. LOL. 😁😆🤣
If I told you that this happened, and just posted this screenshot, you probably wouldn’t believe me. So fortunately there’s a video below.
A bird flies right up to one of our video cameras, staring right at it, while illuminated by the morning sun – making it appear as though it’s on fire. 🔥
Seeing is believing. Sharing is caring. 👍
For the last couple of years we continued using the same old planter beds we built years ago, even if they were not in good shape. After removing them we realized very clearly why our recent harvests were lacking.
Tree roots from the neighbors had gone under the brick wall and into our planter beds, sapping all of the vital nutrients needed for our vegetable garden.
Finding this out both made a lot of sense and equated to a hell of a lot of work. So we removed all the dirt, all of the old boards and started from scratch. The picture above is our new raised planter bed.
We were able to recycle almost all of the wood from the old planter, it is the darker more aged wood on the bottom. So far, so good- the plants are looking very healthy and we are looking forward to a bumper crop of vegetables this summer!
Of course I am well aware that this is a total clickbait blog headline. It is meant to be very sarcastic.
However, as unshocking as it is that proper nutrition, exercise and getting outside with fresh air and some sun on your skin might be a good idea – I did find this article to be interesting.
Makes me glad that I am a person that enjoys hiking, sunshine, vegetarianism and takes vitamin d supplements.
Cheers friends, here is the link:
So, I’ve been a bit bored with modern music recently, be it rock, pop or hip hop.
I’ve been listening to a lot of old school stuff like: Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Nat King Cole, Sammy Davis Jr, Tony Bennett, Louis Armstrong, etc.
On the Sinatra XM station today a singer called Johnny Mathis came on. Had to change the channel. I had heard of him before, but I was not familiar with his voice. It was terribly cheesy and syrupy sweet. Barf.
Sinatra is awesome tho… 🍻
I started following Bearsun (aka Jessy Larios) and his journey last spring in April of 2021. He was on his way from LA to San Francisco, walking in a custom made ‘Bearsun’ suit. It looked awesome from a visual standpoint, and it was a creation all his own. I was intrigued by his ‘costume’, his adventure and his earnest sense of being. I liked that he kept ‘in character’ in all of his posts – and that he was raising money for non-profit groups. All good stuff.
After his LA to SF trip – he decided to walk from San Diego to Las Vegas, all while raising more funds for non-profits thru donations made online. His trip included many more stops, as people had begun to find out about him online and were pulling up along side the road in order to get a picture with him.
Then after completing the SD to LV trip, he came up with the rather lofty goal of walking across the US from Los Angeles to New York. He planned on starting on July 5th and if memory serves me right, I believe he thought the trip would take about 90 days. He had laid out a plan to raise funds for 3 different groups: the disabled community, the environment and mental heath.
It took him 134 days – but he made it. Watching his lives in IG and following his travels was too much fun. Definitely made 2021 more interesting in a positive way. During that time he amassed a huge following across social media, was featured on TV, blogs and newspapers.
In true Bearsun style, as soon as he finished – he announced he was RUNNING from Florida to Washington (state) starting January 1 2022. He started his run across America, but then just a few days into it he posted that he had to stop and head home to LA.
All of his followers were very concerned about him, but last night, he went live on YouTube to explain why. Ill let you watch his video rather than explaining it all out, but suffice to say, our thoughts and positive vibes are with him.
