ON MY SOAPBOX….What? Another Recount…

Do you remember the little maps in shopping malls that pointed out your location with a note indicating that….”YOU ARE HERE” with the Big Red X? Those maps gave you a reference point. Then you could easily align yourself with the surrounding stores and plan your shopping spree. I loved those little maps. In retrospect, they were non-electronic, primitive GPS devices. You quickly located a dress shop and your husband found the closest bar…and your problems were resolved for many hours.

Why in the world hasn’t the DNC created a little map with a BIG RED X for Joe Biden? He is more location challenged than me…and brother, let me tell you, that is lost. Poor Quid-Pro-Joe. He probably knows his way around the Ukraine better than Hunter at a strip club, but he is really confused about the map of the United States.

As you will recall, months ago, when he was holding a press conference and was asked about his impression of Keene, New Hampshire, where he was spending most of his weekend appealing to voters, he replied, “What’s not to like about Vermont in terms of the beauty of it?”

Today, while Crazy Joe is in Nevada, he thinks he is in California.

I do not care about the spin of MSM as they announce, “he is traveling to many states.” What do they think 78 year old Socialist Bernie (I had a heart attack) Sanders is doing? Do they think he has a time machine?

Perhaps, Joe Biden is just trying to check off all the 57 states that obama visited.

But what can the Democrats really expect anyway? We know they purchased an abacus, for vote counting, from the Clinton Foundation….but someone, somewhere still has to be smart enough to properly slide the little balls around.

This is such a perfect story and song for the people we love……

I Wish You Enough……Recently I overheard a mother and daughter in their last moments together at the airport. They had announced the departure. Standing near the security gate, they hugged and the mother said,
“I love you and I wish you enough”.

The daughter replied, “Mom, our life together has been more than enough. Your love is all I ever needed. I wish you enough, too, Mom”.

They kissed and the daughter left. The mother walked over to the window where I was seated. Standing there I could see she wanted and needed to cry. I tried not to intrude on her privacy but she welcomed me in by asking, “Did you ever say good-bye to someone knowing it would be forever?”

Yes, I have,” I replied. “Forgive me for asking, but why is this a forever good-bye?”

“I am old and she lives so far away. I have challenges ahead and the reality is – the next trip back will be for my funeral,” she said.

“When you were saying good-bye, I heard you say, ‘I wish you enough’. May I ask what that means?”

She began to smile. “That’s a wish that has been handed down from other generations. My parents used to say it to everyone”. She paused a moment and looked up as if trying to remember it in detail and she smiled even more. “When we said, ‘I wish you enough’, we were wanting the other person to have a life filled with just enough good things to sustain them”. Then turning toward me, she shared the following as if she were reciting it from memory.

I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright no matter how gray the day may appear.
I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun even more.
I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive and everlasting.
I wish you enough pain so that even the smallest of joys in life may appear bigger.
I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.
I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess.
I wish you enough hellos to get you through the final good-bye.

She then began to cry and walked away.

They say it takes a minute to find a special person, an hour to appreciate them, a day to love them but then an entire life to forget them. Send this to the people you will never forget.

The Changing Surface of Fading Betelgeuse

Explanation: Besides fading, is Betelgeuse changing its appearance? Yes. The famous red supergiant star in the familiar constellation of Orion is so large that telescopes on Earth can actually resolve its surface — although just barely. The two featured images taken with the European Southern Observatory‘s Very Large Telescope show how the star’s surface appeared during the beginning and end of last year. The earlier image shows Betelgeuse having a much more uniform brightness than the later one, while the lower half of Betelgeuse became significantly dimmer than the top. Now during the first five months of 2019 amateur observations show Betelgeuse actually got slightly brighter, while in the last five months the star dimmed dramatically. Such variability is likely just normal behavior for this famously variable supergiant, but the recent dimming has rekindled discussion on how long it may be before Betelgeuse does go supernova. Since Betelgeuse is about 700 light years away, its eventual supernova — probably thousands of years in the future — will likely be an amazing night-sky spectacle, but will not endanger life on Earth.
