We Shall

~~~~~ In the deepest darkness where most folks don’t go, you will discover people not wearing any clothes. In the deepening darkness where most of us dwell, everyone’s willingly blind.

Happy Holidays

People Over Politics, World Over Wealth! ~~~~~ It has been a wild and crazy year; some of it was bad and some good. Happy to say, “We’re still here!” retain a mostly positive attitude. My wife needed an ablation and I fell down more times than once. Like all, struggled with inflation. Stood up again, […]
