Yes I did learn a lot from your blog!
My friend, Peggy sent this to me,
as I was editing it on my cellphone,
So sorry, my friends. . .
I accidentally published this
Bonita Beach, Florida photo
before I was finished with
writing this about what
I would consider
Peggy boarded her
jet plane under less
Unfortunately, she and her
brother, John, are settling
the estate of her mother’s.
When we used to go to Michaeli’s,
a Scottish pub, we would get up and
sing karaoke in front of other patrons.
My favorite memory was when she
had her boyfriend, Tim, and I had my
good guy friend, Bill. We were there
with Lu and her husband, Ray. The
other couple who joined us was
composed of Felda and Jason.
When Lu, Peggy and I got
up to sing: 🎼 🎵 🎶

Scientific studies now exist that defend
Stress as something good which we need to extend
Our productive lives, as we get on in years.
So perhaps we should fuel, not conquer our fears
And dwell on what is scary in the world today
So we can keep our minds sharp and dotage at bay.
That’s easier today than it was in the past
Thanks to round-the-clock, in your face, varied and vast
News media, that seem to excel at frightening
(But not at their job – informing and enlightening!)
Whenever we search for what we used to call “news”,
Major world events and leaders’ well-reasoned views,
The depths of human depravity appear
In bold print before our eyes or loudly in our ear.
We get endless non-reporting, in-depth and detail,
Of the endless ways in which the conscience can derail
A killer with a torture device collection,

What do you see in this image?
My coworker thinks there’s a crown,
my friend thinks there’s a dove or
eagle with wings spread wide.
I see a beautiful portal or
wormhole in the circle
in the sky! Lots of

Norman Greenbaum sang
this song in 1969, making it
a Gold record for the year and
being added to the Top 100 hits
for U.S. Billboard for 15 weeks!
It sold 2 million copies and made it
to Top record lists for the U.K.
and Australia, too.
I was 14 in 1969,
I liked the rowdy horns
or instruments which created
a unique sound to this song.

“Time is only an idea. There is only the Reality. Whatever you think it is, it looks like that. If you call it time, it is time. If you call it existence, it is existence, and so on. After calling it time, you divide it into days and nights, months, years, hours, minutes, etc. Time is immaterial for the Path of Knowledge.” ~ Ramana Maharshi
I am pretty sure we can all happily say peace out January, do not let the calendar hit you in the posterior. Maybe it was just me, though I know a lot of my blogging friends felt the same way, but January was not butterflies and sunshine. It was disgusting dirty snow and arctic temps that should be illegal.
While people were getting excited about changing themselves those first few days, it was all I could, to pull myself out of my warm…
