It's another gorgeous morning here in New England. Pretty soon though, the hot muggies will be back, so I try to take advantage of the cooler early morning hours.
I've been following (on the news) the story of the two teenage boys who are lost at sea. I'm hoping they will be found alive real soon. Many years ago, my cousin, his ten year old son and their dog, along with a neighbor and his ten year old son went out on a boat in a fishing competition and were never seen again. Only one body was ever recovered that I know of. The sea is very mysterious.
Part Two - Seven Weird Jobs Around The World
"Have you ever thought about becoming an ant vendor? There is not that much to say about this weird profession. You're being paid to sell ants. There are about 12,000 different species of ants in the world, so selling ants might actually be more complicated than you think." (Enterprise 7-20-15)
In last night's newspaper in the YOUR OPINION column, they printed a most interesting opinion that I heartily agree with. It's titled "America Is For Americans".
"America's taxes and social welfare benefits are strictly for our legal citizens, period. As to the question of whether the State should extend in-state tuition to all, I say No Exceptions.
It has been stated that we are all immigrants, but the beginning immigrants were invited to come here legally through Ellis Island, as my dad did. These are the ones who built this nation and assimilated into society, while introducing their traditons and learning English.
Illegals are taking advantage of what is already here, trying to better their lives at our expense and the expense is staggering. We do need to improve our immigration system. That only means to make it easier for those who respect our laws and are waiting in line to become citizens.
I do feel, for humane reasons, many illegals here for many years may be given a lifetime visa, but no citizenship ever. It a perk just to be here. All children born here are allowed citizenship though. We are the United States Of America, not the world."
Folks, I will help anyone in need, but I should not be expected to neglect my family and friends in order to support the world. I also believe that if anyone coming here is just here to change our laws, our language, our religious and patriotic beliefs, our holidays and our traditions, they should be turned around and sent back to wherever they came from. It's one thing to share your traditions with us, it's quite another to expect us to change all our ways to become the way of life you left behind.
Today I have a couple photos that I took last winter in Florida. I'm not sure of the name of these flowers, but they are beautiful.
Yesterday, the "under counter" cabinet that I had ordered for my kitchen arrived. After sweeping and washing the kitchen floor, I set the cabinet in place and proceeded to fill the drawers with all my plastic bowls and lids. Once that was done, I was ready for another shower.
I also decided to drop the "temporary" asthma med (Symbicort) and go back to my regular med, Advair. The last time I was on Symbicort, my breathing got constantly worse until I finally had to ask the doctor to put me back on Advair. This time, the same thing is happening. I guess I'm just not of those persons who can take Symbicort.
I gave Pogo doggie food for breakfast this morning, and he's not very happy with me. Ah well, I'll give him his left over supper (steak) for lunch. Maybe then he'll be happy with me again. Now I need to get busy and start taping a program on to DVD. So, till tomorrow, Y'all stay cool and have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
