Got thoughts on anything happening in the news this week? What’s happening in your part of the world? Found a new
restuarant restaurant serving delicious foods? Like a new flavor of coffee or tea? Is your contestant still on Dancing with the Stars? This is your opportunity to have your say on just about anything.
It’s despicable when talk radio show hosts use false narrative when accusing other media outlets for using false narrative. Neither one does our country any good. Both make their profession seem made up of childish bullies.
I think some people in media need to reassess their job capabilities – to see if they’re doing it ethically and responsibly. It maybe that they have been in it too long to report news, or give comments objectively. I would like to see them change profession, or change the way they deliver news. Any change would be refreshing!!
Just my thoughts!
For several years now we have heard our families and friends talk about planning their vacations at a destination closer to home or even staying in their hometown enjoying local activities and attractions. We’ve even planned a few ourselves to save money. These vacation plans are generally known as, staycation or stacation.
I’m wondering how many people have actually made a big switch to plan staycation every year as compared to those saving and spending loads of cash for far-away activities? Is the nation’s bleak economy, rising taxes, lack of unemployment or underemployment for some, high gas and food prices for all, major reasons for shaping our decisions to go outside the city limits or stay? If more and more people are taking advantage of visiting local attractions and enjoying local activities every year then why would the demand for gas continue going up in the spring and summer months? And what about staying home? Are we really saving money on gas when we’re stuck in a traffic jam everyday because of road constructions or a tractor-trailer loaded with tons of food has overturned? There’s no doubt that these situations do have a positive benefit to our local economies. Sometimes, though, it could be cheaper for us to just get out-of-town, don’t you think?
I went on a wildflower hike last weekend and had a wonderful time. Captured photos of a variety of beautiful flowers. Heard some awesome birds. Saw some majestic trees. I love Spring but it isn’t my most favorite time of the year. It is a close second, though. Many people say that Spring is their favorite but, besides the beautiful flowers coming to life and everything turning green, I have my dislikes. Mainly, Spring allergies.
Got thoughts on anything happening in the news this week? Any positive tips on how to save more of our money? What’s happening new in your town this summer to draw in family’s? Are you keeping up with car maintenance to save money on gas – got any tips for the rest of us? Have a favorite recipe for those of us bored in eating the same foods? This is your opportunity to have your say on just about anything.
