Thoughts While Shaving

It’s February and this is going to be a typical February day.  Early morning temps in the low 20s, highs expected to be in the low to mid 40s.  Warmer on Sunday, in the low 60s.  Plan accordingly.

I am looking forward to cutting grass.  Like the warmer weather when it’s cold and pray for cooler weather when it’s hot.  Typical human being, can’t be satisfied.

E-town Dixie Youth supporters had a great night, last night, selling all 250 tickets for steak dinners, and auctioned off donated items.  Now they can spend their time working with the youngsters…Thanks to all who supported in any way…

Stock Market received a small ‘jolt’ yesterday.  Too much progress recently and negative news out of DC may have been part of the problem.

Bladen County Commissioners will meet a couple of times next week.  First, in regular session Monday, usual meeting place (Courthouse) at normal time (6:30 PM).  Then, in a Special Planning Session Tuesday at 4 PM at the Bladen County Health Department Conference Room.

Winston Churchill quotes shared by a reader friend:

You will never reach your destination if you stop and throw stones at every dog that barks.

Fear is a reason.  Courage is a decision.

A nation that forgets its past has no future.

There is nothing government can give you that it hasn’t taken from you in the first place.
