Thoughts While Shaving

Thursday night NFL action, Green Bay Packers 35 – Chicago Bears 14.  Before the game, players on both teams locked arms as a symbol of unity, game was interrupted for 47 minutes due to  lightning that was spotted just outside the stadium.

Tonight, high school football.  West Columbus plays at East Bladen, West Bladen travels to South Robeson.  Gametime for both games, 7 PM.

We flip our calendar tomorrow (Saturday).  Looking forward to October!

Average high temp for October is 75 degrees, compared with 83 for September and average low in October is 50 and 62 for September.

Not unusual for first fall frost near the end of October or early days of November.

Congress and the administration are proposing a new tax plan that is suppose to reduce taxes for businesses and individuals.  Big question is, how will the nation pay for the tax cut estimated to be $5,800,000,000,000 ($5.8 trillion).  Guard your bank account and billfold.  Trust me, somebody (some group or groups) is going to come up short. A majority of current office holders of the Senate, House and White House will be long gone when the final results are known.

Pray for the sick and families who have lost a love one.

Education and work are the levers to uplift a people.  W.E.B. Du Bois

We’re all affected by music.  It has the power to inspire, uplift us, change our moods, and even alter consciousness.  Andrew Weil

The best preparation for tomorrow is doing your best today.  H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
