Thinking about all the statues about the Civil War they have removed, I think they rewrite history. To prove the point, in the new movie of the landing on the moon, they will omit the American flag placed there by Neil Armstrong.

Having done a lot of travelling, I can relate to this. On my first trip to Rome, it was by way of a cruise ship. We were bussed in. At the Trevi Fountain, we could hardly move. Had trouble throwing my coins in. At the Vatican, we couldn’t get in because of the long lineups.
A week later we disembarked the ship in Venice, then took a train back to Rome, where we stayed awhile.
Now this was a totally different atmosphere. There were hardly anyone at the Trevi Fountain but too late for me, I already spent my coins. We went to the Vatican at 8:00 a.m. and there was maybe a dozen tourists. Took all the photos we wanted without a people background.
Last year we went to Germany and stayed in Munich and Fussen, a week each. It was just normal life, no pushing or shoving. Although any tourist attraction like Neuschwanstein castle, will have a lot of visitors, even from their own country.
Tourists bring in a lot of money, but it comes at a cost.

If we knew the consequences of all the decisions we’ve made, would we ever make any. For one thing, we couldn’t be blamed for the bad ones but then again we couldn’t get credit for the good ones. Our ego would take over, because we want the credit and are able to ignore the rest.

covered with wooden shingles, unused nails were often to be found. Unfortunately, many of them were found in the soles of the feet of children, who spent the summer running around in bare feet. If this happened now, there would be a quick trip to Emergency and a stab with a Tetanus shot. But not back then.
In those days, we would pull out the nail, lick our finger and rub it over the wound to wipe away the blood. Then there would be a quick trip to Mom, who would kiss the spot and make all the hurt go away.

When it comes to politics and your vote common sense does not prevail. Naivety and the media are the deciding factors. Naïve voters with a lack of experience, wisdom, or judgement, having limited knowledge of issues involved, cast their vote with the advice of the media and ranting celebrities. Some vote for one party because it’s a family tradition. Far be it for anyone to vote for someone who is good for the country.

The American have put tariffs on some of our goods and now we retaliate. Our government has decided to put tariffs on foodstuff so when we go to the grocery store everything will be more expensive. The Americans will pay the tariffs and the money goes into our government coffers. I think that the money collected should be given back to the food industry so that our food prices stay the same. As I look at it, it seems to be a roundabout way of taxing food. And you can bet that when the tariffs are removed, the food prices will remain the same.

I wonder if the recent media coverage in the U.S. is a look into the future of their Presidency. When elected, will he have to spend the next four years being constantly attacked by his own country? Will this dictate policy? The fate of the nation taking a back burner to warding off attacks and enacting personal vendettas?

the first thing that came to my mind was cruise ships. That sounds odd and I’ll explain. Most ships are built in Germany and Italy. They are built in sections and welded together. As you walk down the passageway you can see where the sections come together. If the passageway is level and smooth, it was built in Germany. If you come along the passageway and you have to take a step up where they meet, then that ship was built in Italy. The collapse of the bridge does not surprise me.

Far as I can tell, it means someone who likes everyone. I know a lot of people like that but they don’t run around and say they are pansexual. Nor do others. They just call them nice people.
This name is for people who want to feel special, to belong to a special minority, like saying their family is descendant from Royalty. Of course they would want the P added to the ever growing list, giving them the right to march in the parade.
