The Mail Must Go Through

Submitted by ub on Sun, 08/02/2020 - 11:34

Do you remember this one? We realize the price of postage has increased, but so what, so has everything else in the USA.

It seems fitting that on the only day in which regular mail does not arrive our way, I want to say that I have spoken with Democrats, Republicans, and Independents, and the one this they all agree on is that USPS has significantly slowed to a snail pace. Thereby coining the phrase, snail mail.

Was it that Donald never had a toy, or maybe it a could have been a master ploy by his family since he has always been a sad boy?

Prepare For Sextilis

Submitted by ub on Sat, 08/01/2020 - 07:29

The month of August is the eighth of the year in the Julian and Gregorian calendars, and the fifth of seven months to have a length of 31 days.

August was originally named Sextilis in Latin because it was the sixth month in the original ten-month Roman calendar under Romulus in 753 BC, with March being the first month of the year.

August or Sextills, whichever you happen to prefer is going to be a humdinger. It does not appear to look like a good month for #USA.

Opinion/Adult Language 

Who has been consuming compost for years, which is turning into a visible form of manure and finally begins to overflow?

According to experts, a balance of greens and browns is needed to create the proper environment for composting to occur. Greens are nitrogen-rich and include items such as grass in golf courses, clippings, fruit and vegetable waste, and coffee grounds. Browns could be chocolate cake, and perhaps those carbon-rich hamburgers he likes to devour.

What is the first thought which comes up when we hear the phrase “Civic Participation”? Do you suddenly think of long lines at the polls to vote or waiting for long local government meetings to end?

Luckily, technology has completely changed the dynamics of the conversation. Anyone can send a message to the President their Senators, or US Representative with a few clicks. But, what has this done for how citizens talk to the government to improve their life experiences?‪
