Notes of interest:

Dollar General is ending their sponsorship of Joe Gibbs Racing at the end of the current season, worth about $20 million if you would like to pick up the slack.

Tax cuts are made with much ‘gusto’ about helping the poor, need to dig deeper and see who they really benefit.

A ‘Thoughts” reader shared the following:

“Choose a leader who will invest in building bridges, not walls. Books, not weapons. Morality, not corruption. Intellectualism and wisdom, not ignorance. Stability, not fear and terror. Peace, not chaos. Love, not hate. Convergence, not segregation. Tolerance, not discrimination. Fairness, not hypocrisy. Substance, not superficiality. Character, not immaturity. Transparency, not secrecy. Justice, not lawlessness. Environmental improvement and preservation, not destruction. Truth, not lies.”

A statement from Ghandi, many, many years ago.

Kindness is a language that the deaf can hear and the blind can see. Mark Twain

We may have grown old, but may not have grown up.

Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm. (Winston Churchill)
