For a cool summer:
I seriously hate you.
No matter what you do,
I only like what’s mine
Regardless if you align.
Coming together in this new world of animosity has become pretty much impossible. It’s sad to see that what many see as important boils down to gaining political power and nothing more.
Except of course for all of the millions of people who have lives far beyond cultural trendiness. Those who think for themselves. Who see sunshine instead of darkness. Who see varied solutions to disjointed problems rather than one and only one. Who know that others need assistance and see it as love and not political opportunism. Yup, parents and grandparents and aunts and uncles, and good friends go to sports awards dinners, or academic award congregations to salute achievement and see the promise of the world yet to be. Or sit thoughtfully in a quiet church to ponder inside; who they are why they are here, and what they can do with all of the love in their hearts.
Happy First Day of Summer, E-v-e-r-y-b-o-d-y!
Did see the report that said that after years of research it has been determined that dogs are actually smarter than cats. Now I don’t have horse in this race, or a cat or a dog, but I can see people’s hair raising or lips widening into a grin depending on where they side. Personally, I like both animals for what they are. It just shows you that those who have the ability to look smart, may not be as wise as simple man or woman observing the sunrise ans unset of another day.
“Overcome with the beauty of Earth seen from space, the astronaut removed his helmet. The view was breathtaking.”
I was surprised the other night when all three of the Jeopardy contestants did not know what Elias Howe had invented. Do you? What are the inventions of these other famous Americas tinkerers: Ben Franklyn, Alexander Graham Bell, Samuel FB Morse, Chares Goodyear, George Westinghouse, George Eastman, Robert Fulton, Cyrus McCormick and Willis Carrier

Dunkin’ Detours, Department:
One cause of rush hour traffic jams could easily be those people holding up traffic to make a left hand turn off a single lane road into a Donut, coffee shop or convenience store for morning refreshment. Think about how empty the roads would be if everybody made their own coffee or tea at home? Think about all of the jobs that would be lost.
What will be the “Blockbuster” of this generation? You know, a company that made it big fast and then died an equally abrupt death.
I believe that this immigration situation has hardened the support for Trump among his people. But, it may have weakened support for Repub congresspeople who Trump probably needs more than his own people to make it through the four years.
How you can tell when Hollywood stars are drinking, Department:
Last night Peter Fonda tweeted that “He wants to rip Barron Trump from his mother and put him in a cage with pedophiles.” He apologized for being stupid this morning. From what I read from the lips of celebs, drinking must be really heavy out here.
The NBA Draft is at center court tonight. The first five teams to pick are Phoenix, Memphis, Dallas, Atlanta and Orlando. The top five players are Deandre Ayton, Marvin Bagley III, Jaen Jackson Jr., Mohamed Bamba and Evendall Carter Jr. Note, Luka Doncic of Real Madrid is also considered a major prospect by several experts
I like just about everybody. Well, maybe I don’t like social scientists.
Just like everything, overzealousness in law making in response to movements like equal pay for all, could eventually give the government much too much power over business decisions. Which BTW, is exactly what socialists want.
I have to be honest with you, I don’t watch rallies or listen to protest groups. Can you spell r-e-d-u-n-d-a-n-c-y?
Elias Howe of course invented the sewing machine. Ben Gave us bifocals, the stove and flexible urinary catheter. AG Bell the telephone, Sam Morse the telegraph, Chares Goodyear usable Vulcanized) rubber, George Westinghouse the train airbrake, George Eastman the camera, Robert Fulton the steam boat, Cyrus McCormick the Reaper and Willis Carrier Aid conditioning. Say thank you, except perhaps for the catheter.
Here’s the gist of today’s Tids: What you see screaming in headlines is generally irrelevant in the daily lives to the vast majority of all citizens.
