We had been waiting anxiously for the show History of the World Part II to appear. Perhaps our anticipation was too high for the reality of the program, but disappointment abounds. The fact that we grew up in the era of History of the World Part I, which was fantastic, may be part of my … Continue reading What Happened to Words?
How About Boxing?
I am so tired of hearing about all the kid shootings! It appears that most (if not all) are due to an argument between a couple of kids or kid groups. I had an epiphany this morning – boxing. Let's put the main characters into an arena (like a boxing ring) and let them have … Continue reading How About Boxing?
I’M TIRED OF THE TRASH!
No, I am not talking about all the anger and lies; I am talking about actual trash! This first picture was taken at a highway on ramp. The trash is all over the place, but not like it accidentally flew off a truck or something like that. It is also at a spot right by … Continue reading I’M TIRED OF THE TRASH!
WHY DON’T AMERICANS SEE THAT WE DID THIS TO OURSELVES?
It's always much easier to blame someone or something else for our problems. I was not raised that way. If I did something wrong, I learned to step up and accept the consequences.

So, we did learn some precious lessons in 2020. But then what? Where did those amazing lessons go wrong? … Continue reading WHY?
DO YOU THINK IT’S FAIR?
My sister and I were in a mood again this morning. We always put on some silly movie we have and laugh or sing along with it. This mornings selection is Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. The movie starts out with a couple of my favorite songs: Brandy by the Looking Glass and Mr. … Continue reading DO YOU THINK IT’S FAIR?
IS THIS THE TRUE WAY TO HAPPINESS?
This year started with contemplation – again! It seems like I always start with that and end up with a mess and more questions than answers. Since 2020 was so horrific in so many ways, and since it also felt like it produced more angry/hateful feelings than average, my contemplation revolved around happiness. I went … Continue reading IS THIS THE TRUE WAY TO HAPPINESS?
