Wrote My Way Out

In life we have a choice.

1) Sit around, bitch and blame others.

2) Pick ourselves up and do something.

You? You get to choose.

Words

Words are things.

Words get into you.

Words affect.

Words are powerful.

Be careful of the words you say. Be careful of the words you allow into you, your home and around those you love.

Write only good words, speak only good words, allow only good words and share only good words.

I am not perfect, may I strive toward good whenever I possibly can.

Good starts with me. Good starts right here, right where I am.

Movie Beard / Patti Cake$

Yesterday we flew from San Diego to Ft Lauderdale. We being Fearsome and myself.

The Better Half had recommended a movie called Patti Cake$. His reccomendation was a good one.

Diversity, acceptance, love, inspiration and adversity in a refreshing reality. Well filmed, acted, directed and edited.

The above Video is a blend of movie clips assembled into a music video of an original tune this flick gives us.

Highly reccomended film. Two mustache tips up on this one!

Snatching smut

According to the Washington Post a certain administration in Washington DC has commanded that the CDC, Centers for Disease Control, must refrain from using certain words in their reporting. These words include science-based and evidence-based.

No freakin’ kidding.

As reported by the Washington Post please read for yourself:

The Trump administration is prohibiting officials at the nation’s top public health agency from using a list of seven words or phrases — including “fetus” and “transgender” — in any official documents being prepared for next year’s budget.

Policy analysts at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta were told of the list of forbidden words at a meeting Thursday with senior CDC officials who oversee the budget, according to an analyst who took part in the 90-minute briefing. The forbidden words are “vulnerable,” “entitlement,” “diversity,” “transgender,” “fetus,” “evidence-based” and “science-based.”

In some instances, the analysts were given alternative phrases. Instead of “science-based” or ­“evidence-based,” the suggested phrase is “CDC bases its recommendations on science in consideration with community standards and wishes,” the person said. In other cases, no replacement words were immediately offered.

The question of how to address such issues as sexual orientation, gender identity and abortion rights — all of which received significant visibility under the Obama administration  – has surfaced repeatedly in federal agencies since President Trump took office.

Vera Carp from our favorite fictional town of Tuna Texas seems to have infiltrated the current administration.

 

I Don’t Mind

Darren Criss gives us something beautiful with his new release I Don’t Mind. 

I needed this today, a moment of beauty and escape.

A future post will reveal the main reason for my silence of recent. Life goes in cycles where it’s carefree and easy, then hard and painful. I’m fortunate in that most of my life stays in the carefree and easy category, for that I am grateful. So I must take this trouble period in stride and do my best to be grateful when I can and appreciate beauty when it touches me.

This is beautiful.

Thank you Darren!
