Down Days Can Be Rough

So, today I needed to rest. Missed some blogging and a pretty critical appointment. Such is life. My heart needed the rest. That was more important today. Charlie Chaplin said it all without words. Do what you can, when you can. Rest. Don’t quit. Cool pic enjoy. 0 SharesShareTweetSharePinShare

Empathy is the Way

Today we discuss empathy. Not because it’s the hot topic of the week, but b/c it lets you learn very quickly. I just read autism in heels by Jennifer Cook O’Toole.

But it […]

So Covid 19 is testing the water of what some call the need for a Universal Basic Income. I was against this in the beginning because it was a UN Socialist Agenda item that seriously bothered me. Combine it with the massive amounts of debt that we are incurring,  at least in Canada anyway and […]
