Because of the way this site is structured, all posts regardless of category show on the “Home” page. Specific posts related to categories / pages like “Success”, “Excess”, “Log Entries”, etc. appear on those pages. Why, I don’t know. Yep, I’m confused too.
Not to take away form other fine companies… This fairly well sums up why Whole Foods made Fortune Magazine’s “100 Best Companies to Work For List” for 19 consecutive years. Leadership! Leading by example… you just can’t beat it! Two days ago on LinkedIn…
The argument made by Trump’s attorneys (ongoing in the USA’s supreme court) means, the way they describe it, that Trump or any sitting president couldn’t be investigated or prosecuted while holding the office — no subpoenas, no testimony, no indictments.
Above the law !
Now that just might sound like someone who has something to hide!
Can you imagine…a black man is murdered while jogging on a Glynn County, Brunswick City, neighborhood street; two armed, white, former law enforcement officers shot and killed the 25 year old man in broad daylight; the victim was not armed; it was 10 weeks before local law enforcement officials acted at all; then it was only do to local/national outrage; two local district attorneys recuse themselves from the case prior to state investigators stepping in; it only took 36 hours for the state to indict the two for murder; the state of Georgia has no hate crime laws. Can you imagine having the trial venue in Glynn County, or the state of Georgia for that matter? Can you imagine…!
Edie Thompson would scare the ghost out of you if you were riding in her van’s passenger seat. Most of the neighbors experienced this multiple times. They now refuse to ride with her, all offering to drive if the group is headed to a card game, a round of domino’s, or an afternoon of Mahjong. The driving situation has been building over the years. So as April Fool’s day approached, it offered a grand opportunity that could not be missed. So the letter below, logo and all, was sent to Edie.
Edie’s husband was warned in advanced. He picked up the mail from the street mail box and set it on the kitchen counter. He was there when Edie opened the letter. As she read, she was heading toward boil. He had to leave the room when the vulgarity started, not to expose the prank by laughter.
Edie actually called the phone contact number in the letter only to be told there was no such driving program for seniors. She was not happy! Her husband hours later, broke the news to Edie advising her to look at the date on the letter. There was an immediate search for the author.
Law Enforcement Services Section Education, Division of Senior Roadway Program, 4235 Mail Service Center, Raleigh, N.C. 27699-4235.

It is a “posting” from 2018, but I’m thinking it remains very accurate today.
What lead to this blog entry? I enjoy reading CNN’s “5 Things”, an email that I receive to start my day, just to see, “Whatsup”. This morning, April 20th, I find this:
President Trump said testing is a local problem that the federal government shouldn’t be handling. He also said the country was testing “millions” per day when the actual number is around 150,000 per day.
I did not fact check it… I had a feeling I didn’t need to…!
And this from the “Independent”, April 2019
Now, on his 801st day, the count stands at 9,451, according to The Washington Post’s Fact Checker’s database that analyses, categories, and tracks every suspect statement the president utters.
9,451 suspect statements… and that was a year ago!
I find it incredible, but maybe I would say not so surprising, to see how many people and organizations are stepping up to help in so many ways.
There are many. Personal donations, financial and services assistance from corporations, and public displays of support for front line workers who are at the highest risk. And, personal time donated to support many activities to help those in need. And professional athletes, actors, and musicians helping to shrink the space caused by social distances. Just some efforts that are very visible and just keep coming.
And, even support from some countries who are other than our allies…
