Good morning. It's only six a.m. so it's not daylight yet. Gosh I surely do miss those early sunrises and late sunsets. This morning I picked up the newspaper only to get rather disillusioned again about our lawmakers and big business.
There is an article that says "Time to revoke visa program that's hurting American job seekers." Naturally this heading perked my interest. After reading the article, I am left with a disgusted feeling and more distrust in business and government.
Basically, the H1-B visa program allows employers to import 65,000 foreign nationals per year. That's about 400,000 foreign nationals at any given time, who must stay here for six years and continue to work only for the company that hired them. This drives out the American workers, and keeps the hourly wage way down.
In order to preserve this horribly dishonest H1-B system, employers loudly and continuously proclaim that they can't find qualified American workers. They say they are only importing the highly skilled workers, but that in fact is a big fat lie. It's time, folks, to GIVE THESE JOBS BACK TO OUR PEOPLE!!
Folks, check it out and SPEAK UP!! These are our children and husbands and other family members and friends who are out of work and struggling to get by daily. It's way past time to do something about it and get our people back to work.
Today I have some pretty photos of clouds that I took a few days ago at work. As you know, I enjoy photographing the clouds. There is so much beauty up in the sky. We just have to look up. This was a beautiful sunny day. However, you can see by the last photo that the large dark grey clouds were on there way in and hiding the blue sky and fluffy white clouds.
I gave the smelly lavender sleepy time spray to one of the dwarfs (who loved it!) and got me a good nights' sleep without it. And now that I have ranted a bit, I need to get busy and try to accomplish a few things around here. Maybe dislocate a few dust bunnies. That always makes me feel so macho and accomplished!
Before I leave, I have a freebie for you. I used one of my clover photos for the background and a robin that I photographed while I was at work. The frame and the flying robin are from a kit that Kyra made. The kit is "Nostalgic Memories" by Russian Dutch Heart Designs.
And here is your download link. Enjoy.
I can see daylight peeking through my window so it's time to rustle up some breakfast and get started on this new day. Till tomorrow, Y'all be safe and have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
