No News Is Good News

No news is good news. 

Unfortunately, most of the news these days is bad news.

  • War
  • Terrorism
  • Global tensions
  • Threats of WMD
  • Political dysfunction
  • Inflation
  • Trade deficit
  • Ballooning debt
  • Sinking economy
  • Global warming
  • Social divisions
  • Rampant crime
  • Chaos at the border
  • Pandemic
  • Care giver shortage

Only good news is usually technology and acts of compassion, caring, personal sacrifice and sometimes true heroism!  ๐Ÿ˜‰

Sounds Refreshing

Great sign for the Pablo Picasso drink.

If you have too much, do you feel like the guy pictured here?

Maybe people need to feel this wayย sometimesย (especially when the world looks like it’s going to hell).ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰

Toppings!

The toppings are the best part of ice cream and frozen yogurt. 

Nice to have a colorful assortment to choose from: fruits, nuts, candies, chocolates, marshmallows, and drizzles.

My favorite hot, hot fudge!

Sweet is everywhere!  ๐Ÿ˜‰

GameStop Is Going Nowhere

This is what GameStop is selling. 

– Wrestling Buddies dolls 

Cute, but not really a shopping imperative and the store was deserted.ย 

Yet, GameStop stock is still stratospheric, while tech and innovation is in the graveyard depths.

The world is upside down and inside out. 

I think a day of reckoning is coming to bring us back to earthly reality.  ๐Ÿ˜‰

Anniversary Fruit Plate

Anniversary fruit plate and artisan and sparkling water.

There was also a tray of chocolates and nuts. 

Nice complimentary gesture and classy surprise to come back to.  ๐Ÿ˜‰

Food Child Abuse

There are many ways that children get abused. 

This one was by food! 

The parent was feeding their child a HUGE bag of Cheetos for breakfast. 

The bag was fully ripped open down the middle, so it couldn’t really be closed and nothing would be left anyway. 

If that wasn’t enough, on the airplane, the parent then gave the child 2 more bags of PopCorners.

Honestly, I felt bad for the kid(s), who seemed like good, sweet kids. 

But this is not the way to teach them to eat without getting them sick. 

Trying to judge people for the positive: maybe the parent thought they were doing something nice for the kid by letting them eat all these snacks–like a treat. 

But honestly, this wasn’t doing the child any favors, no matter what the flavors!ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰
