No matter what happens, it is "our country" fellow citizens

Donald Trump is a flawed man.  Whatever happens to him in the future does not bring me comfort.  Russia has been a thorn in my side since I could read.  They were the reason, I hid under a desk, we had blackouts because we were "afraid" of the USSR....

Hopeless Spirit

A close family member is in a dark place in life and not sure how to come back and believe in HOPE again.  Some of us have to deal with illness/ addictions on an ongoing basis.  It’s a challenge daily to believe that somehow it has to get better, but...

Life goes on

Yes, life goes on. Time flies by so quickly. Seems like yesterday I was just a happy consumer of news. Now, I am not so happy. It could be because I don't listen to Sean Hannity on Fake News. I am sure he could give me a laugh a day. Yes, that is what...

History can be a pretty unpleasant and unforgiving phenomenon, especially if you happen to be caught up right in the middle of one of its more visceral convulsions. But that is History. It is futile to pretend that some ethereal dispassionate calm and...

Kindness can not be bought.

It’s amazing how much a small act of kindness can affect one’s day, it would seem that money is of little value when taken into the grand scheme of things. Money does make the world go round, and unless you want to live on a consistent diet of top...

So angry at the bitterness contained in words.

I was brought up to care about people.  My children were brought up to care about people.  Selfishness, should be a sin.  People that take advantage of the programs for the elderly and poor are destined to go to hell and have nothing. The people that...

The F.B.I and not commenting on investigations

I have waited a few days to write anything on Director of F.B.I. Comey testifying for the House. I have watched it twice. The first time I ever heard of James Comey, was when he testified in the investigation re: Alberto Gonzales trying to take...

A Man Once

A man once thought that the world was over populated until he went to the city. A man once thought that the trip was too long until he flew in an airplane. A man once thought that he knew how to work hard until he joined the Navy. A man once thought...

Feeling Stuck like Chuck

  Last year in May my son, wife and baby moved in temporarily to get out debt and save to buy a home. I knew within my heart things were not going to work with him and me in the same house. Remembering back when he was a teenager we never could see...

Glass full almost tipping over

This past weekend I went to a location to have a battery replaced in my watch. It had already been a long week and my glass was full of cramp going wrong. I had taken my debit card out of my wallet and some type of way I got distracted about the price...

My Old Dog (RIP)

I was hiking a trail a few years ago with my trusty dog by my side. Up ahead I saw a big ole black water snake lying across the trail. Just to have a little fun I decided to see if my dog would see or sniff it out. I had the dog on a leash and was...

"We're becoming more and more mean spirited."

Jeffrey Sachs source  SETH BORENSTEIN writer for AP  Norway vaulted to the top slot in the World Happiness Report despite the plummeting price of oil, a key part of its economy. Income in the United States has gone up over the past decade, but...

Why Bother?

The man was sitting in his chair with his eyes squinched shut and he was concentrating very hard. He had been practicing for the past month. He popped his eyes back open and……….dang……….the picture was still crooked on the wall. The man just knew in...

Well, that went rather badly..The Dutch general election all done and dusted. The heretofore ruling party of Premier Rutte lost around 20% of its parliamentary seats;whilst the once predominant Labour Party was virtually annihilated at the polls and...

The Ditch

The two boys were looking at the deepest ditch in the neighborhood. It was about three or four feet deep and about four or five feet across. To the boys it looked like the Grand Canyon and they had plans of jumping that canyon. Of course there were...

Say it ain't so.. we all fall down.

People have always said one of the problems with Hillary Clinton was she lied and did many things that appeared illegal. Let me tell you, she was an amateur compared to our current President. Washington DC, has been paralyzed by various Trump...
