    RIP Joseph E Lowery

    Reverend Lowery helped desegregate buses and public places in Mobile, Alabama before Rosa Parks didn't give up her seat in Montgomery. He was co-founder of the Southern Christian Leadership Congress and continued his activism all his life. He was born the same year and month as my Dad. Because he traveled a lot I heard him speak in many school auditoriums over many years. I confess that I noticed that he shaved his face except for a mustache, a little place left unshaven just under his lower lip, and a small beard UNDER his chin. I didn't notice it the first few times,. The Rev. Joseph E. Lowery, second from left, helped lead a civil rights and antiwar march in Atlanta in 1970. Also present was Coretta Scott King, fourth from left.Credit...Associated Press

    Doing OK. We have new next door neighbors at the Air B&B. They are a young couple who drove cross country from Virginia in a Range Rover. They arrived last Friday. The owners hired them to do yard work. They say according to their contract they pay one months rent and stay half of March and all of April. I haven't seen the man wearing a shirt. He is very outgoing. She is not so talkative. We've talked with them from the two front yards. Thank you No Stars. Here is an article about that man:

    Reading this thread on the "Yellow Side" I thought of this song: WE JUST COME TO WORK HERE (WE DON'T COME TO DIE) By Harry Stamper sung by Anne Feeney Well I’ve been working here for fifteen years and I’ve seen some changes come. I’ve seen some Okies called Californians, I’ve seen some poets called bums. I’ve seen people working for safety,, there must be a reason why. Maybe we just come to work here, We don’t come to die. Chorus: “Cause if it’s always level on the floor where you’re working and your telephone is OSHA approved When you tell me how much you’re spending on safety, pardon me if I’m not moved. Ever since 1970 the law has been on my side. And I just come to work here, I don’t come to die. I would like to end up with all of my fingers, I don’t want my brain to get numb I would like to have my ears when retirement nears, I wanna hear that applause come. And I’d like to see my grand-children.... Be able to pick them up when they cry. That’s why I just come to work here, I don’t come to die. Now you and I know that the things that aren’t code could be fixed with relative ease. But we never did get anything by asking on our knees. So now we’re looking you straight in the eye. Shoulder to shoulder and side by side. We’re saying we just come to work here ..... we don’t come to die. We’re saying we just come to work here MISTER! We don’t come to die.

    President Trump National Scandal

    Just dumb luck. I think the article is newly posted this morning.
  6. Hi Ted. I heard your governor this morning. Very impressive! He is working hard for the people of New York. I did a cursory search and found most governors of both parties are doing their best. I had mixed feelings about our governor too, but think he is doing his best too. I clipped and mowed half the back pig weed forest. Plan to finish today because rain is expected tonight. We have a quarter acre lot. Husband walked around the mowed part yesterday with Duke at his side. Then sat in the sun. He said, "I'm and old man with a good old dog."

    President Trump National Scandal

    Coronavirus: AOC urges Trump to stop dragging feet amid failure to implement emergency measures Donald Trump has not ordered any companies to manufacture critically needed medical supplies, despite his announcement that a war-time measure to accelerate their production in the face of the coronavirus pandemic was in “high gear” as hospitals prepare for shortages. FEMA administrator Pete Gaynor said that the president has not ordered any company to speed the production of ventilators, facemasks and other medical equipment but is instead merely relying on the invocation of the Defence Production Act as “leverage” while companies offer to “donate” their services... ... The administration “haven’t had to use it” because companies are voluntarily offering supplies “without using that lever”, he told CNN’s Jake Tapper on Sunday, He said: “If it comes to the point where we have to pull the lever, we will.”... https://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/world/coronavirus-aoc-urges-trump-to-stop-dragging-feet-amid-failure-to-implement-emergency-measures/ar-BB11xDt7

    Our city councilman emailed to let us know that here we CAN take a walk, ride a bike, hike, jog, walk your pets and take them to the veterinarian if necessary, and be in nature for exercise — just keeping at least six feet between yourself and others in the community. Sister is doing OC. She does complain that her vacation was cancelled, and she can't have her hair or nails done. She is like her BIL, very social.

    Too bad we didn't have a whistle blower, which would have prevented deaths caused by Covid-19

    Probably this man who died of Coronavirus was the reporter's friend. I think calm honesty conveys compassion. We all need that now.

    President Trump National Scandal

    To me it is still unclear. President Trump has told so many lies and rarely states facts in plain English. Not just sad. this is dangerous.
  15. Praying for us all in these uncertain times. Husband's physician's appointment was cancelled, but he has his blood work ordered to monitor his CHF. Monday when I went to the store they were all out of beef, which he had a taste for. I bought a packaged Hormel sliced roast beef in gravy. He loved it! He remembered the taste from when he was single and often had the very same product!
