Say thank you to deepen a friendship, repair a bond, to make sure another person knows what they mean to you. Try it, you'll like it.

I was taught from a young age to say thank you. It’s the polite thing to do! I teach my children and students to show appreciation and respect and expect them to do so when they received kindness from others.

As I grow older and hopefully wiser I know how important is to take my time, talking, driving, eating, walking, and all life pleasures.

Scientists say that slowing down is a sign of something more serious, but I have seriously enjoyed driving and doing things slowly. In fact I was told years ago by a newsmaker that a problem as he saw it was that everyone are in a hurry and rushing only to place a down payment on their tombstone.

Their American and Russian admirers will accept everything they are told but will never accept freedom and human rights regardless of race, sex, nationality, ethnicity, language, religion, or any other status. Human rights include the right to life and liberty, freedom from slavery and torture, freedom of opinion and expression, the right to work and education, and many more.

The Chinese-owned social media giant joins Putin’s propaganda by muzzling users and cutting them off and allowing lies to spread.

Ticks are more than a nuisance. Ticks are external parasites, living by feeding on the blood of mammals, birds, and sometimes reptiles and amphibians. Can we talk?
