I do believe that the things we encounter regularly as we go about our everyday existence should lift us up. In far too many ways, the world is becoming a smaller, poorer place. Big Ups, BC!
    agreed!

    Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.

    About 40 years ago (geez.....) a group of us delinquent girls thought it would be funny to steal a manhole cover and bring it to a teacher who had taken us under her wing.
    At the time "manhole" sounded like a dirty word.
    We got about 20 feet and a police car pulled up and we scattered. I was laughing so hard I peed my pants.
    I've probably driven over that manhole cover 5000 times since that day.
    Thanks for the memory!

    Flint keeps on setting the trend for America. Now our governor has relieved the citizens of Flint of the burdensome chores of democracy. He has appointed an Emergency Financial Mgr who has replaced the elected mayor and city council for the forseeable future. Without the annoying worry about informing oneself regarding candidates, Flintites should have more time for manhole cover theft, copper a/c pilfering and relieving their neighbors' homes of aluminum siding.
