Friday Blogging.....It Ain't Pretty, But It's Real.....C'est la Vie..


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
So it's Friday....Gaza is still a Bloody Mess, Bush is still Incompetent Imbecile, and Obama continues to build his team and brainstorm with them in Problem Solving Efforts and give Pressers preparing the repugs for his Command, as the Repugs start to get whiny and peevish, and yet 524,000 jobs were lost in December so the Economic Downfall is a Reality with 11.6 million out of work in December, and the Northwest continues to face apocalyptic Flooding ...so down below is blogging on a little of it all, It Ain't Pretty, but it's Real.....Later today there will be a Blog Round Up as I am OFF today and sitting watching it snow and drinking tea and of course watching the Cav's tonight .... Stay Warm and dry.....and stay Hopeful.

Today's Wisdom: Hope is like my Aunt May's fine China, it needs to be handled with care, and honored with gentle hands, it can not be thrown about like a football....it's fragile in stormy times..

Well Happy New Year my friend...my goodness it has been awhile...yes things are looking pretty grim all the ways around....and for me sometimes I find that overwhelming...so what I tend to do..is figure out is there something I can do in my area to make a small change...something manageable and tangible for me.

I am speechless when it comes to what is going on in Gaza....and as for the floods....urgh...seems if it's not one weather disaster it is another....

Enjoy your tea..and yes stay warm....

Hey Fine Canadian Friend...I need to visit your blog and catch up...it has been too long....When things are bad I do what I always do..."Chop Wood, Carry Water"....and drink tea ;-)

I just try to cover what matters here at the WS...and sadly it is quite a pile right now isn't it? ....and then I try to give a little something back...that is not so painful...( like some music for the soul....)

We will get through these times...

( Bush tried to set the example of hiding and Ostich Syndrome- of burying one's head- but we can see now that THAT strategery does not work...ever...)

take care...and will visit you tonight...

Tor:
Here's the thing about My Blog....since you are New here. I have rules- No Hate Mongering, No War Mongering and No Hope Bashing- I am big On Hope...Big on trying to Repair Our Broken Humanity Factor, and our Empathy Deficit.

So you may think you are "funny" or that your little rhyme thing is "funny"....it's not - These are HARD times-people are suffering....truly hurting- losing Homes and Jobs and Dignity....

So No one comes here and takes away their Hope....

Got it ?

Good....

Cuz if you come here Trolling, or spoiling for trouble- you will be deleted- it's that simple....

Here in DC, the news hardly mentions W. any more. It's almost as if Obama is already president. I think most of this is because everyone's anxious for the current administration to leave.
