USA: Angry, Divided, Untrusting – Trump Tweets WHAT?

President-elect Donald Trump recently tweeted that our country is angry, divided, and untrusting. I agree. He also said that many folks believe this will never change. And in big old caps, declared that IT WILL CHANGE. I hope so. But I have a hard time trusting he can lead us to that change. President-elect Trump has said and done a whole lot of things and many of those things may be classified as angry, geared to keeping us divided, and within those parameters, perhaps not all that trustworthy.

So. President Donald Trump. Really? Why?

So. President Donald Trump. Really? Why?

We have a little more than a week to go before we welcome our 45th President of the United States – President Donald Trump. Really? I want to know why. I was not as surprised as some folks that Donald Trump was voted in as our next president. I did not mourn like some folks when he was elected. And I am cautiously optimistic about what is to come for our un-tied states of America. We are not united. At best, we are untied. Unrested. Unhappy with what is becoming of … Read more…

25 (over the top and…)Crazy Cool Christmas Lights Displays

Tis the season for crazy cool Christmas lights displays and we’ve got them here. Growing up, we didn’t overdo any outside Christmas decorations at our house; just a couple of colored spotlights out front and our tree inside. But we did make a point of driving to the next town over, for this one house in particular… How much was their electric bill for all those lights? It had to have been pretty steep, considering all the lights in and around their yard. That question has rolled around in … Read more…
