December 31, 1999, in the evening, I wondered if the world would end 12:00 a.m., January 2000.
We went to a party. Later in the night (11:30 p.m. or so) I was tired, I’ll just take a little nap in a bedroom.
When I woke up, maybe 12:15 a.m., the world didn’t end.
I wonder if I WAS awake at 12:00 a.m., the world WOULD end though?
Well, in any case, you’re welcome everyone.
yes, yes you are. and for that, we are lucky.

“I know that I should be standing on the premise of “When they go low, we go high” (Thank you, PRESIDENT BARACK & MRS. OBAMA for always exuding the highest level of dignity and decency), but what I am hearing today, has me outraged…on another level. And, for the record, I don’t have to have brown skin to feel this way, and the same applies to you.
Logged into my Twitter just now and this is what I find…
How sad was that? So, I ask – if you voted for him, has he gone too far yet? Has he gone far enough for YOU to vote for something different in the coming election? If you don’t think that this
person is inciting hate and spewing the worst kind of venom ever, you are either wearing blinders that are too tight OR you’re just like him, and he’s doing exactly what you want him to do. Yes, I said that and I didn’t stutter when I did.
When was there another time in our history that we had such a
person running our country? When?
When was there ever a time that our country was the laughing stock of third-world countries? When?
When was there a time in our lives that we had to hang our heads in shame because we belong to the America that is now?
When was it ever this bad? I mean, those babies at the border are still babies…no matter the shade of their skin…right?
MAGA? Make America great again? My America was great long before this
person took office. Now, my America looks more and more like a cartoon with every tweet that he sends from the Oval Office.
MAGA? What does that mean to me coming from him? Let me turn it around the way that I like to do when I’m putting a different spin on negativity. Let’s get rid of
MAGA and turn it around to AGAM. You know what that means? AGAINST GOD AND MAN, because everything that he does and every word from his mouth goes against God and Man.
If you voted for him hoping that he would make some real positive change, I sincerely hope that you can now see that he is what is wrong with our country.
If you’re not happy with any of the candidates lining up to run against him (and there are many), meet “Bart” and his wife “Sally”…
They’d be happy to step in and MAKE OUR COUNTRY GREAT AGAIN, and I love their campaign slogan more than anything! They’ve got my vote!
person, all the hate you give won’t stop us…WE WON’T MOVE.”
Oh, and if you’re wondering why I have crossed out the word person as it applies here, well, here is the definition of a person: a human being as distinguished from an animal or a thing. Understand now why I can’t even refer to him as such?
How do you feel about his latest incite of hate? Voting for him again?”
Thank you Nonnie Jules! ❤️ ❤️ ❤️

When I was 16 years old, I worked at Round Table.
When my shift was done, I changed back to my real close; but I still kind of smelled like pizza sauce. So I sprayed Ralph Lauren perfume, and no more pizza smell on me! … Then 5 minutes later, my close smelled like Ralph Lauren AND pizza again 😐
Someone actually posted this on ebay:
(Vintage) “Lauren by Ralph Lauren, 1 fl/oz Bottle, Approximately 1/2 Full”
(?!?! — Who would buy this half empty perfume bottle?)
Maybe she works at Round Table, and she knew that Ralph Lauren doesn’t hide pizza smell too?

I was not anywhere near the tragedies of 9-11…at least not physically. We watched the events unfold on television while sitting on a couch in our tiny apartment on a seminary campus just north of San Francisco. Like most of the country, we sat dumbfounded. No one spoke. Everyone cried, including my newborn son. It was a lot to take in. Clearly […]
“… America is a great nation, founded on wonderful principles that continue to fill its people with a sense of pride and purpose. Our country rallied. We made plans, sought out ways to ensure the safety of our people, and moved forward. Some would say that THIS IS the American way. The days since have not always been easy. The threat of terrorism has become the new normal. And we’ve had to adjust. The world is different and we are different. A swell of nationalism permeated every part of our country during those times. Many laid aside their differences as we came together in prayer and resolve. In the following months and years much was sacrificed to apprehend those responsible for this unbelievable tragedy. The events of that one day dramatically affecting every part of American life.
Unfortunately, in the years since the attack we have seen that sense of unity erode. Nowadays, America is known for its political infighting. Activists of all kinds have sought to divide the people in countless ways. Those spewing hate have managed to turn neighbors against one another. Agendas have created word wars and many have been hurt…even killed. All of this within our own borders while the threat of terrorism still looms large. I hate what happened to our country on 9-11, but in remembering the tragedy itself we can find hope. Today (on the anniversary,) in every way and shape imaginable WE REMEMBER. Today, at every turn we recall the significance of this day and remember the lives lost. Today, we seek to honor and recognize the true heroes among us. Today, social media is filled with symbolism and pride as we cannot and will not forget what has happened. Surprisingly, I find comfort in this type of remembering …”
