Just Why – Politics?

Why to people feel the need to post political statements on social media? I’m not talking about political blogs or discussion groups. Enjoy your debates there. I am talking about general Facebook or Twitter accounts.

Feel what you feel….just don’t spout off. I’m not going to change your mind, you’re not going to change mine….and when you call me an idiot for what I think or believe (without me engaging at all), all you do is make me angry and less likely to even consider your point of view. Besides, my Mom always said, “don’t talk religion or politics.”

Cream Puffs, Husband and Cat

I made a batch of cream puffs on Tuesday. Now I bought myself an injector around the holidays. I wanted to be tidier and make a prettier puff. Tuesday was the second time I used the injector. Filling the things went better than the first time. But, when it came time to refill, I must not have tightened the nozzle enough, so when I squeezed the trigger cream went all over the place, including the floor.

Enter the husband….who says, “let me help with cleaning that up.” You may recall, the cat from other posts….the fat black and white one….He doesn’t eat people food, just Meow Mix and kitty treats. So hubby puts kitty treats in the spilled cream. The cat wanders over looks at the treats and cream and taste tests…..He proceeds to say “Meow, Yuck” and wanders away….leaving a trail of cream across the floor. Now I have cream and kitty treats all over the floor. And a long haired cat, with pastry cream in his tail.

I love it when hubby helps.

We were out to get some supplies yesterday and saw several children visiting the store with an adult. I can appreciate the idea of a mom or dad being concerned about Covid and not wanting the kids to attend in-person classes and I know schedules have changed with various times for various students. Plus, I am sure the children are going stir crazy at home. Here’s my ponder point for today:

If you are doing home learning now because of Covid concerns why would you have your unmasked children running around in stores?

Food for Thought

I haven’t posted in quite a while. Since moving from the beach, my photographs are more mundane than before and I wasn’t sure anyone would really like them….but I was at my church service yesterday and had a thought (probably wasn’t paying as much attention, as I should have been). This is the result of that thought.

Sometimes I think about things, especially what is happening today, in the world, in the neighborhood and in my life. I think about the problems there are and what can be done to solve them. I think about the different opinions and priorities of people. What is best for all of us? Then I think about what I would do if I was “Queen of the World.” Here’s where it falls apart for me, most of the time it’s not black and white. Each side (and there could be more than two) have good points. So I thought I would put together some brief random thoughts and maybe we could mull over them together even though we are apart. So here is my first:

I put out bird food for the birds, but believe me the squirrels get more than their share. I don’t put out the food for them. Why do I sometimes get upset that people take advantage of food or supply give-aways? Most need the help. A few may be greedy. Some may be lazy. I have no clue how you could sort one from the other. You could put some complex system in place but that would cost a lot. What would the all knowing “Queen of the World” do?

Couple of thing:

Do you think this type of post is worthwhile?

Don’t feel you need to answer the question or random thought, I’m not sure there are answers.

Let me know if I am “preachy” believe me that is not my intent.

Please don’t be mean or nasty.
