These important words, inspiration and aspiration, and motivation are different and distinct. They are often used interchangeably, but should never be.

The reason why I bring it up at this time is that as schools are wrapping up one of the most difficult academic years ever, it is time to reflect and learn the difference between them.

It is important to draw a clearer distinction. Inspiration is the process of being mentally stimulated to do or feel something.

Why do I consider myself to be the proudest grandpa on earth? My baby girl Sabrina Soto's baby Olivia is a preschool graduate.

This is not just a fancy-schmancy diploma, this is is my baby girl's baby girl graduating from PK aka pre-school, and moving on to the big times, maybe even a Ph.D.

I'm going to continue celebrating with family and friends throughout the weekend and may even shed a few tears of joy.

My late Padre was a baseball fan. He named two of his sons after baseball greats and knew a lot about America's favorite past-time.

The St Louis Cardinals were one of his favorite steams. The club was started by the American Association in 1882 as the St. Louis Brown Stockings, who got their name from an earlier National League team. They had another name besides The Cardinals, also the St. Louis Perfectos.

Kyrsten Sinema and Joe Manchin US Senate supporters are now saying they don't belong in office unless they help Democrats.

A DINO means they are Democrats in name only. Their jobs are to vote with their party for issues like a Commission to investigate the US Capitol insurrection, to approve a voting rights act, and abolish the filibuster as well as to support President Biden Democratic agenda. Why are these two are siding against their own party?
