Thoughts While Shaving

Thoughts While ShavingWhat a mess in the race for President. My mom would likely say, my, my, my. Not sure our major party candidates for the office have ever had such negative ratings. But it is what it is. The choice is ours. We will most likely make the choice, not based on who is the better candidate, but by voting for the candidate we think is the lesser of the evils. Sad.

I am a huge fan of FactCheck. If you are not using it, I recommend. The real news is bad enough, and when the political candidates and pundits add a little, sometimes the truth is difficult to determine.

I hope you have read Katie Galean’s article, published Sunday, July 3, ‘Prescription Drug Abuse – A Pharmacist’s Struggle’. If not, I recommend it to you. Katie is working with BladenOnline as an intern this summer. A great article.

Saw our stats for the first 6 months for BladenOnline. I am amazed. We had 9 articles that were read by over 10,000 of our faithful. Our top 2 articles were read by nearly 20,000 each. Another 7,000 plus read the other 11 articles in the top 20.

Thanks to the BladenOnline staff.

90 plus degree weather is expected to be the norm for the next 10 days or so. Plan accordingly. Our neighbors to the north received heavy rain last night, driving home from Clinton was a challenge.

Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time. John Lubbock

I believe that summer is our time, a time for the people, and that no politician should be allowed to speak to us during the summer. They can start talking again after Labor Day. Lewis Black

Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible. Francis of Assisi
