Happy Birthday: John Le Carre, John Lithgow, Evander Holyfield, Brad Daugherty
Another Great Apple Bowl ! Congratulations to East Middle School for the win but what impresses me the most is the way the Falcons bounced back after a bad start to the season. They lost their first two game then turned it around to win their last four including the “Big One” last night. Hats off to the FALCONS !!!
Voting begins tomorrow. I am so disgusted with politics and I consider myself to be a positive person. I’m working on trying to put the balloting in a good light but this year has me a little apathetic despite being so turned off by the people in office now. Yes, there are exceptions but overall I’m just angry. I’ve never seen our Nation look more turned off. The rhetoric is so bad that the comics don’t even have to write their own material anymore. I really think that Social Media has made politics worse.
I know a secret but I can’t tell. I really want to but I can’t….maybe I should give you a hint
