Thoughts While Shaving

I wonder if the president of the US, members of congress, members of the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) and other prominent office holders receive robo calls?  How about astronauts in outer space?  Is there no place to escape?  At our house, the numbers are increasing, daily.  Think the abusers have created a new industry and must be recruiting from foreign countries to handle the calls.

Remember the events in the area, too numerous to mention, again….One more….the Azalea Festival in Wilmington is also this weekend…

Dawn Maynard is retiring as Executive Director of the area Chamber of Commerce.  She has done a good job for years and will be greatly missed.  She will be around for a few weeks/months while a replacement is located.

Scrolling thru news items recently and discovered Darrell Waltrip will retire as FOX/NASCAR personality after 19 years in the TV booth.  The 72-year-old was a driver before he entered the broadcasting business.  Remember when he was nicknamed ‘Mouth of the South’ during his driving days.  Never short of words.

Don’t think I have ever seen as much turmoil in the political arena, at every level…if one party says ice cream is good, the other most likely disagrees.  And we pay the salary and expenses for all.  Have never thought term limits were good, but think it is ’bout time to take a look at pros and cons…It appears to be party above nation….by a large percentage, despite denials.

Never give up!, Failure and rejection are only the first step to succeeding.  Jim Valvano

You’re never a loser until you quit trying.   Mike Ditka

Do not let what you can not do interfere with what you can do.  John Wooden
