That Time When President Trump Made The Boy Scout Jamboree Look Like a Hitler Youth Rally

Over decades Presidents have gone to the Boy Scout Jamborees to promote strength, dedication and service.  They’ve given uplifting and inspirational speeches to the attendees.  This year our paranoid and odd President, Mr. Trump turned this event into a Hitler Youth Rally.  Talking about politics and LOYALTY.   He spoke about Healthcare and Fake News.  He even threatened to fire Secretary Tom Price if Trumpcare doesn’t pass.  He also followed some of these destructive comments with “believe me”.

Nothing he had to say was relevant to the 40,000 Boy Scouts and Leaders who came to be inspired.  I really believe that Mr. Trump thinks he’s smart.  I think that he believes the law of the land doesn’t apply to him or his family.  I believe that he hasn’t a moral compass and that this speech was wholly inappropriate.

Apparently, I wasn’t the only American appalled.  The Boy Scouts issued a statement that the President is their honorary President of the Boy Scouts and that they are not Political.

The only thing missing from his grandiose speech about how great and tremendous HE is was a story about him banging some beauty queen.

I hope the boys of America look at this moment and think…that’s not what we stand for…not even close.

It’s going to be are really long 4 years 😦

Merry Christmas…in July

We decided to celebrate Christmas in July this year.

We went to Byers Choice and the National Christmas Center.

Byers Choice had lots of places to take photos beyond the exhibits.  This was a dress up area with costumes and a Christmas background to take pictures in your dress up 🙂

It was so hot that Byers Choice had the local fire department come out with the hose to cool the kiddies down.

It was such a fun time.  I got to see so many of my favorite beings (elves) and relive a little bit of my childhood 🙂

 

A Beautiful Weekend

What an amazing weekend.  I’m tired but it was worth it.  The sun was shining, it was warm (86 degrees) and very low humidity!  Hurrah!  Our friends let us use their pool this weekend while they were away so that just added to the greatness of the weekend 🙂

I got to finish the book I was reading and start a new one.  It is turning into the summer of “Murder, She Wrote”, lol.  I enjoy Jessica Fletcher…it’s a weakness 🙂

Millie and Tara enjoyed the sun pool side too.  Tara’s not a fan of the water (or any water for that matter) but they both had a quick dip in the cement pond.

To top off the festivities we decided to make our own pizza.  Pizza Bagels are the best.  Who knew.  They were so yummy!  It’s definitely the way to go!  Now it’s time for a little rest but wow! what a weekend 🙂

p.s. Yes I know my grammar is atrocious.  It’s part of my charm 🙂

Why I Loath ABC Network

So my taste for TV has dwindled a lot lately.  I watch a select grouping of shows.  Most of them have completed their series runs and that has left voids in what I watch.  If I watch TV now I fill in Netflix, Food Network, HGTV and Law and Order re-runs.  This is sad because I used to love watching a list of shows.  Now I’m like Blah.

Downward Dog – CANCELLED

I loved Downward Dog.  It was cute, funny and lovable.  Who couldn’t like Martin and Nan?  They were a sweet team.  The storyline was evolving with each heartwarming episode.

Who could forget Martin’s observations on life.   Like when he’s banished to the Prison Yard.  Martin has an arch nemesis, Pepper the neighbors cat.  This is hysterical.  How about being the Garbage Dog?  The time he tore apart Nan’s house when left alone.  What dog owner couldn’t relate?  The fact that Martin has a voice is amazingly fun.

There are rumors that this Show is being shopped around to other networks.  I sure hope someone picks it up because I was so excited to watch Season 2.

I’m tired of violent TV Shows.  I’m tired of remakes of remakes.  I’m  tired of humorless “comedies”.  ABC Network, you have nothing to offer me.  I’ve given up on Once Upon A Time and I’m pretty sure that was the only other show I was watching on your crappy network.  You broke my heart when you dumped All My Children and One Life To Live…this just makes me loath you even more!
