R-E-S-P-E-C-T...




We'd like to dedicate this weekends post to the legendary queen of soul Aretha Franklin.

This astounding woman was an inspiration and lent her voice to life's sound track for millions of young women growing up in the 60's and 70's.

With songs like Respect which was originally written for a male singer, but Miss Aretha took it and made it her own and  made it a battle cry for all women.

She sang for kings and queens and presidents.

She sang at Martin Luther King's funeral and Barrack Obama's, Jimmy Carter's and Bill Clinton's inaugurations.

George H.W. Bush gave her the highest award available to citizen's of the United States, the Presidential Medal of Freedom. 


Her music and her life will be remembered forever...





Have a wonderful and musical weekend!

Ouch!



Due to an automobile accident, we are licking our wounds and tending to our bumps and bruises both literal and figurative.

Please forgive us for skipping this weekends post.

One year after Charlottesville....






Related image





In memory of Heather Heyer

On the anniversary of Charlottesville....

we were stunned by the comments uttered by Fox News, Laura Ingram.

They were despicable  and deplorable statements.

What are people so afraid of?

I sorry, I just don't understand.

When you would forfeit your own best interests because that's how badly you want the country to be "white again".

Because you are under the mistaken notion that if you can only contain and control those other people  somehow everything will magically be like it was in the 1950's.

Everyone will shop at mom and pop stores owned by folks you know by name and go to church with.

Kids can play outside until after dark without you worrying someone will snatch them or shoot them.

Manufacturing plants will spring up in decimated neighborhood's bringing them back to life.

You won't have to work after retirement because your Social Security that you paid into faithfully for decades will be enough to live on.

Health care and prescription costs will go down...

and we will all live happily ever after.

That's never going to happen!

And blaming some none existent bogyman for all of it, is what is know as DENIAL.

My advice?

Get over it.

Things change.

Quit acting like a victim.

I'm sure that the guy who used to make buggy whips wasn't happy either.

Or the book binders or the guy who spent his life repairing clocks only to be out of business when digital clocks were invented.

None of these things have anything to do with the border or immigrants or people of color.

If you're looking for a villain...maybe you should take a look in the mirror

Lost in space...



So, the Pentagon is taking its first steps to creating Space Force, which would be the 6th branch of the military.

This is a project that will cost billions of dollars.

You know, on top of the billions of dollars already that went for tax cuts and models of The Wall and parades and all the other nonsensical things this president has wasted money and resources on.

But Mr. Trump seems to view the presidency not as an office where he is there to protect and serve the people.

But more like his own personal piggy bank that he can draw from whenever something strikes his fancy.

Certainly NOT to help citizens after a hurricane that devastated Puerto Rico.

Certainly not to help rejoin families his own whims have torn apart


So I guess it makes sense in a perverse way...you screw up the entire world so bad that of course you have to have somewhere else to go so....lets start exploring all the aspects of space again.

And lets have a military specifically designed to defend the next planet we conquer and lets do it under the pretext of it being an expansion of a military that is already more powerful than all others.

And lets do it while we are still fighting 2 wars that have been going on for over 15 years.

Does this all sound like a fictional conspiracy theory ?

Welcome to the world we live in now.

Words on Wednesday...


        (We know we've used this picture before but here it is in color)




For a while now we've been wondering what's up with Mr.Trump and the word reciprocal.

He says it A LOT!

It's like he heard the word one day and really liked it so began using it all the time.

We've come to know his favorite and most often used phrases.

We have gotten too used to his way of speaking

But really that shouldn't surprise us because as we all know that Donald Trump "has the best words".




Have a wonderful Wednesday...
we hope it's reciprocal!
