2018 Jul 15 | UFC, World Cup

There was a random dollar bill sitting in the candy section here. I wasn't going to take it, though; maybe it's some kid's.

No good blow pops, only apple ones.

There are way too many oranges in this fruit slices pack.

Watching UFC 226. Everyone was really hyped for the Francis Ngannou vs Derrick Lewis fight as they're both huge-hitting heavyweights. However, all they did was dance around and almost never punched.

The referee actually paused the fight...

... and told them he was going to penalize them if they didn't attack.

Well, they still didn't.

The fight itself was boring, but the reaction by the announcer complaining about it was fun.

Even better than the fights were the reactions from the fighters in the crowd. Nose picking.


Head locking.

Head rubbing.

And flipping off the camera.

At least the final fight was decent.

Daniel Cormier looks so happy he won.

And then Brock Lesnar came in and challenged him. They have a bit of a height difference.

A beach volleyball group in the Bay Area. Except beginners are discouraged, so we won't be going.

The power went out and we had to reset all the clocks. This one was really annoying because we couldn't figure out how to change the hour, just the minutes, so we had to build up the hours 60 minutes at a time.

Watching Pee-wee's Big Adventure. Overall not that great of a movie, but who can forget Large Marge.

Eating and watching America's Funniest Home Videos. I remember watching that as a kid.

The frozen food section at this Walmart was completely cleaned out. I wonder if they had a power problem.

These eye drops are on sale.

They're expired, though. I didn't even know it was legal to sell expired non-prescription drops.

Pretty palm trees at sunset.

Nice window painting.

We went to Buffalo Wild Wings in Salinas to watch UFC Fight night.

They had a lot of fighters who hadn't fought in a long time, like Cat Kingano.

This was a crazy knockout; he was on the bottom but hammer-fisted him while his head was held by his foot.

Sage Northcutt, another one we haven't heard from in a while.

Same with Dos Santos.

The next morning was the World Cup final.

And France scores.

We were watching it on Telemundo via Roku until apparently our free trial expired. Glad we weren't having a big party with lots of people over.

Because now we can just stream it on the laptop and not have to worry about it not being on a big screen.

Although we had to get in close.

Even though I can understand the Fox commentators, they're not as fun as the Telemundo ones.

Finally they're using instant replay in soccer.

So he gets a free shot. They really should use it more, though.

Looking at a house in Salinas. It has a nice backyard.

Although it's pretty old.

That heater looks scary.

The rest of the bathroom is really old, too.

Although this room and porch is gorgeous.

And the doors are neat.

Plus it has a ton of different fruit trees in the front yard.

A list of the trees: apple, apricot, cherry, fig, mandarin, nectarine, and peach.

I kept thinking this is "I sit out" and maybe she's a babysitter, but I think "Is it you" makes more sense. Although I don't really know what that has to do with anything, either.

Bad car crash.

This pigeon was in the top of the car wash.

This one, too. They didn't seem to mind the water being sprayed below them.

A classmate in Texas has a billboard for her practice up. I wonder how much that would cost in Los Angeles.

Nice, Johnny sold some more of his pics, big ones this time.

This yurt is on AirBnB in Carmel.

Looks like it's just in his front yard; that's easy.

And now Highway 1 is now open, I think all the way from San Francisco to Los Angeles.

Raider's schedule. I'd like to go to a game, but the tickets are usually around $200 a piece, so maybe not.

Chess.com has a new warning about not intentionally disconnecting, which I like. However, the newest app update tends to put you into games before you're ready to play, so it's an annoying situation.

The hotel confirmation email has an auto-reply to encourage the staff. I wonder if that actually gets to them, and if it does, if they care.
