Starting my new job today. Just a clerk job over at the truck stop, but it’s a job and I need to be getting out of the house and working. So I took it when it was offered. I think I will like it; getting to interact with various people, meeting some new people, etc.
I spent today doing a lot of catching up on paperwork, making phone calls and attending to various other slices of life’s business. I also did a good amount of reading. OH! And I ordered a recommended book on Amazon – Chely Wright’s “Like Me” It came to me as a recommendation from a fellow blogger. So I finally ordered it and should have it in 4-5 days. I’m looking forward to reading it. The book is basically about a country western singer who is lesbian and what her life was like before and during her coming out. It’s supposed to be a very good book..we will see!
I also ordered some new address tags today, I am tired of writing my return address on everything I send out, so I got some of those stick on return address tags custom made by Vistaprint.com. I have used their printing services before and find them to be the best priced, have the widest variety of products and of good quality.
I got to reading today, some of the replies to my blog on politics that came by email rather than as comments – due to length I think – were really good. I think people are paying attention. And the closer we get to these primary elections the worse it is getting here.
Here is one VERY interesting and thought provoking piece that I found – and REPOSTED on MY own Facebook page:
An Open Letter to My Friends by Jeremy Nix on Newsvine
It was INCREDIBLY well written and really lays out what is going on and why Trump is so dangerous to this country; how thinking like he is and following him is just basically saying that you too feel like he does and thus you must be just as bigoted and crazy as he is. Jeremy Nix says it all so eloquently in this piece. You must read it to understand exactly how nutso this Trump dude really IS. Can you tell that I personally am right there with Jeremy in saying that I too am cool with it if you remove me from your friends list if you don’t like this post because I too can’t understand why anyone would support someone as hateful, sexist, racist and ignorant as Donald Trump.
Ok, enough of that for today, man, I can get myself so irritated when I start thinking of some of this stuff. And I need to be calm and chipper to go to work.
I’m off…take care my WordPress friends. Peace! ~MB
