Earth Day

Earth Day is celebrated annually on April 22. When I was a kid I was never specifically told WHY we have an earth day. I know now that in spring of 1970, Senator Gaylord Nelson created Earth Day as a way to force the issue of protecting the environment, restoring damage ecosystems and to encourage living aContinue reading “Earth Day”

Who Is NOT Talking About Will Smith?

A wise man who happens to be a great friend of mine said, why are we talking about this when there is so much more pressing news? While I agree with him that this is not as pertinent as the war on Ukraine, the possible recession or any other topics I think it is somethingContinue reading “Who Is NOT Talking About Will Smith?”

Black History IS American History

I have lived in the US since 1975 and have had the privilege of living in a mostly peaceful, safe, prosperous and dynamic environment. I am proud to be an American citizen and I am just as proud to have Korean and Hungarian heritage. I understand the difference between race, ethnicity, nationality, heritage and culture.Continue reading “Black History IS American History”

Bikers vs Hikers

Today my youngest and I went tromping through the “woods” which is not much more than a patch of trees that are not developed. It is supposedly a protected tree area. It is attached to our subdivision and very convenient to walk to. As we were exploring we came upon this sign: This took meContinue reading “Bikers vs Hikers”

Pre registering to vote

Did you know 16 & 17 year old in NC can pre register to vote? I had NO idea until my daughter told me that she learned in her CIVICS class she could and would earn extra points in class for doing it. The side of me that is suspicious wonders what the government isContinue reading “Pre registering to vote”

Girl Scouts Hire Their First Asian CEO

JoAnne texted me the news and I finally got a chance to read the whole article today. I am a fan of Girl Scouts, I truly am. I think it is a very good organization and if used thoughtfully, girls can really gain a lot from the program. There are way more positive than negatives.Continue reading “Girl Scouts Hire Their First Asian CEO”

All Of A Sudden Oppressed

I usually do not write more than one blog a day but I just came back from Aldi and I had an experience so I thought I would share it while it was fresh in my mind. . . About the only place I go to anymore is the grocery store. I mask up, grabContinue reading “All Of A Sudden Oppressed”

Teens Are Not Thugs

Teenagers have a bad reputation as a group. Just like any other group there are good and bad people intermixed. But too often, our society becomes prejudiced by a group and judge all of them based on a small percentage’s behavior. That is unfair and sets everyone up for failure. I remember shopping at ourContinue reading “Teens Are Not Thugs”

Phone Scammers Are Vile

Dishonest people have a special place in my heart – the black, resentful part. I think scammers are the most despicable of all dishonest people. They deserve a special place in hell for taking advantage of vulnerable people like the elderly. A few years ago, my sweet father was scammed $500 by a man whoContinue reading “Phone Scammers Are Vile”
